It's Mattison + Hoke.
That equals Defense.

Mattison and Hoke together! This will certainly have a HUGE impact on our D!
Lock your doors. CLONES!
That or the cast from The Sopranos.
Is it a coincidence that Hunter S. Thompson has the same hairdo? I think not.
The secret is out. I am the team tutor....
Does that set some sort of record?
Oops, guess this is 4 now...
all your awesome bald coordinator clones are belong to us
Cause they rapin everybody...?
had to be done
I'm suprised they don't coach at tOSU...they seem to know thier way around a horseshoe.
What the hell is the word thier in your sentence?
Edit: im drunk
It's called a typo. You would think someone with such fine spelling skills would know what a typo was.
It makes me sad the state of our educational system.
Edit: I'm an asshole
I love u
and I you sir...and I you

If you are going to use the Queen's English, shouldn't humor then be humour?
You are ornery!
You seem pretty edgy. Have a drink cause I'm drunk and you need to be too.
Edgy? Saying that you're edgy is so not Hard Edge.
No not visers, hats!
Can bald guys coach dreads, or will they just get jelous and make everyone shave their heads.
Perhaps GERG can donate a few strands?
some recruiting magic as well.
"If you were all chicks at a bar I'm pretty sure I could score with each and every one of you tonight"
Pics or GTFO.
Time will tell if Hoke was a good hire or not. Mattison is an excellent hire. Proven record at multiple colleges and in the NFL.
Mattison. If I were a chick, in a bar, hammered drunk and blind, I would do him tonite for sure.
I think some guys are just Coordinator material, not Head Coach material. That is Mattison, just a damn good Coordinator and always will be.
I think it improves our opinions of Hoke(not that they were bad) and I think it is showing us how good of a leader Hoke can be.
It also shows that Michigan is willing to pay for a top assistant, thankfully.
Or it just means that Mattison was willing to come on a discount because
A. He has a daughter and future grandchild in Ann Arbor
B. He has made his money and wanted to coach with a close friend
I dont think we could have gotten Mattison w/out Hoke.
Mattison would not have come here to be on RR's staff.
Successful Baltimore Ravens' DC a better hire than the 47-50 coach of the SDSU Aztecs?
Hilarious, but that "47-50 coach" just hired that successful NFL DC to work for him.
Balitmore had its worst defense since 2002 this season. Ranked #10 in the League in 2010.
I think everyones pumped because heres a guy who has great defense's everywhere he goes.
No. Hoke clearly out weighs him.
It's not that Mattison is a better hire than Hoke. It's that Mattison makes Hoke a better hire.
This hire gives me more confidence that this is all going to work out now. It also gives me confidence in BH that he can pull a guy like this. I'll be honest and say the rest of his choices had me underwhelmed which wasn't giving me a great deal of hope for the DC, but BH proved me wrong and I have never been happier to say that.
scoring with me brah. Bible says two me ought not lay together.
You shouldn't sleep with your clone.
Nice hire, if he only had hired a top flight OC I'd have two thumbs up for Hoke. Now it's one up and one sideways.
Mattison is a coordinator, not ahead coach, that is is history. Hoke has been a successful head coach. Together they look really strong.
Hoke knew where to go to get the guys he needed - he's in charge and showing it.
Mattison has definitely accomplished much more as a DC than Hoke as a HC. Overall, I feel much better about Hoke with our OC and DC in place. Both have substantial experience in major conferences (nfl) and could really be a strength. Mattison is a huge step up from GERG.
I was just going to reference that article. If there is one thing I have learned about Brady Hoke this week is that he is passionate, makes good decisions and is surrounding himself with the right people. Sounds like a great formula to succeed.
I just got chills reading that.
Sounds like someone might be willing to go gay for brady. And that makes about a couple hundred thousand of us.
Impossibly so. And they don't just say, they do for him (Whitlock, former players attend press conference, GM takes DC job).
Whatever Hoke has that makes people feel this way, it's got to translate to the players soon. These aren't simpletons throwing around gushing mounds of praise.
Happily finding myself seeing the reasons I was opposed to this hire overcome by those in favor of it
I love Brady Hoke.
*sadly casts his RR/Obama poster T-shirt into the wind*
Buy me an Oberon and I'll do whatever you want.
This is a great hire. I had pretty much ignored the rumors that Mattison was a candidate. Why a NFL DC (who coaches a dominant D), would leave to coach one of the worst collegiate defenses is beyond me I guess he loved his time in A squared as DC back in the 90's...Welcome Back! This should pay dividends in recruiting topflight defensive players.
You will need a couple drinks. After about 12, I should look appetizing.
I'm your huckleberry.
+1 for a great Tombstone reference!

C. 1/2 the team color of the up and coming maize n blue D thanks to the best combo since PBJ (Hoke n Mattison)
D. All of the above
You haven't seen the board this excited before? Were you not around for any of the Denard threads?
He said excited, not suicidal.
Haha. I meant the good Denard threads. When he was tearing opponents to tiny bits. People here do remember that, right?
I completely forgot about that. Those were happier days...after the past couple months I forgot about early season Denard
"I dont think I have ever seen this board this excited before"
that's the one that's good.
Let's hope this will help us shore up the defensive recruiting class over the next few weeks! Now I really can't wait for September!
if they added all their hair together they would have a gerg hairdoo. but then again they have more room to know what scheme they are running
ful mispelling to annoy grammar Nazification) and Hoke makes peanuts, as long as he can administrate in the Bobby Bowden stye and get us some conference championships :) over the next few eons. Pay these guys the big bucks and let him walk on his knees around Amurrica provin his love for the Big U.
