Title says it all. It's on right now on BTN.
Step into my Office features Hoke
Some GVSU love already...
for those who missed the first one like myself.
If somebody could let me know if it's actually worth watching the midnight show I would appreciate it. I don't really have high hopes for the show.
wear red! Boom.
I love this man more and more every time he opens his mouth
for Archer references.
I'd go to war with this guy!
The guy has this way of communicating where he says things just the right way where it is authentic, obviously heartfelt, but never put on, sappy, or anywhere near phoney. People who didn't see but will watch at midnight, the office tour and his answers to the last couple questions are worth your time.
We have the same pre-game ritual/problem.
I mean, how can you NOT love Brady Hoke?
It's not that it went away. Someone already doesn't like you and your comment. I will bring you back some.
they didn't talk any football strategy or anything it was more of an interview with personal questions about family and Michigan related stuff like "if you could have anyone to speak to the players who would it be?"
I think Hoke has changed the tide on the rivalry. Hell people in Ohio are starting to believe him. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Selling Michigan jerseys is a good start.
Now I answer the question from Ohio fans why he first say their name, "it's shorter!"
Now I can answer the question from Ohio fans why Brady only says the first part of their name, "it's shorter!"
This is actually much older tradition. My dad always refered to them as ohio, I think lots of the coachs used to do that, it isn't a new thing, just Coach Hoke bringing back some old things.
Saying it that way for brevity's sake, saying that way to inflame, or saying it that way out of ignorance? Many folks here in upstate NY have no idea that there is a difference between Ohio and Ohio State. My wife referred to "Ohio" for the first year or so we knew each other. This obliviousness to the difference might be the worst insult.
Sadly, many folks here also have to be informed that there's a difference between Michigan and Michigan State.
I know a few people in their 50s and 60s who have always called them "Ohio," for whatever reason. They didn't intend it to be an insult; it just seems to be common "shorthand" for OSU among people of that generation.
We need a "Boyz in da Pahokee" TovVH style batman signal in times like this. For those of us who don't have BTN anyway.
Lucky for you, I'm on the case. It's encoding now, but I'll probably wait to upload it until tomorrow morning.
Good man. Aprreciate it.

YOU ARE IMPLYING THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH HOMOSEXUALITY I WILL NOW THROW A FOOTBALL AT YOUR HEAD
He's just letting him know that he isn't interested in him sexually. If every woman I've tried to court had extended me that courtesy it would have saved me a lot of time(and money).

He said he was going to post it.
that he didn't say "tremendous" during the interview (at least as I recall).
That in and of itself it tremendous.
Our coach is awesome. Tremendously awesome.
Oh, there's no question...
Every time I hear him speak, he makes me crack a smile much in the same way Denard does. His uncontainable love for Michigan is contagious and really gets to the heart of what it means to be a wolverine.
There were at least two facts I learned (don't want to spoil it for anybody) that made me appreciate Brady Hoke and his love for Michigan football even more.
Most of it was stuff that I have already heard, but hearing it again, just makes you like the guy even more. He has a way of answering questions that makes you feel he is an everyman, while simultaneously making you realize he knows exactly what he's doing.
...he has already changed the tide on the rivalry, and sales of shirts will surely increase.
Never in a million years would I have thought that.
He doesn't seem like an extraordinarily complex man, and I can see how that puts people at ease when they're talking with him.
His public persona at least suggests that he is utterly incapable of feeling sorry for himself, and he would sooner commit seppuku than blame someone else for anything that occurs on the football field.
I cant see him under any circumstances ever telling students/alumni to get a life.
These, along with the revitalization of a competent defense, are things that comfort me, put a smile on my face, and make me prouder than ever to say Its Great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
You just couldn't avoid taking a pot shot at Rodriguez, could you? Of all the things RR said, telling fans to get a life (in that context) was one of the most reasonable.
Accountability is such a strong part of Hoke's public persona that no matter how cautious you are of RR's feelings(which yeah, I'm not very) the comparison is going to come up. Rodriguez got paid a lot of money to not suck.
brushed aside. When asked where his father played football, Hoke replied "he played for Woody Hayes" ... instead of ... well that name I won't speak / write either. So his dad played for Woody, yet Brady grew up a huge Michigan fan ... I guess we don't need to guess about this any further, but that was very interesting.
I doubt a day goes by that Coach Hoke doesn't thank God for this opportunity. He was cast with the same mold as Bo ...
His father actually played for Woody at Miami (Oh) - not the school in Columbus.
First 3 calls after he got the job here came from Brady, Hutchinson and Woodson.
Now there're some connections!
