I did not make this headline up
Not to mention, an Al Borges coloring book....
If your players and coaches need locker room material for game of this magnitude then they should probably quit football. Gosh that is one of the dumbest and overstated comments by people (not just you personally) on the internet. What's Hoke gonna do, print the tweet and place it in the lockers and on the white board?
What a doo doo head.
I love it. The sterilization of sports is so boring and this kinda stuff makes things more interesting.
I'm glad they still think enough of us to make fun of our HC. I saw Dan Hollis speak at a function in E Lansing a few years ago. There were four (4) remarks that directly referenced Michigan. This was after MSU had beaten us for the 4th straight in football. Even when we suck, we're in MSU/OSU's head.
Meanwhile, the Figthins want to pretend we don't exist.
Boy, I sure wish we'd beat them more often. Then I could come up with something witty in reply.
i think this is what stewart mandel was talking about.
See, e.g.,: https://chemistry.osu.edu/~rzellmer/michigan.htm
Let's get a Kickstarter going to help fund the OP's sense of humor...
by the OC, I wouldn't over react to the OP either. He has passion and that is good. And I like his inputs most of the time, I'll allow him some venom towards ohio.
True, however when I saw the use of the word "puppet" I instantly thought Kim Jong Un referring to puppet regimes, and I didn't appreciate the OP using his fancy words to make me think of Kim Jong Un. Don't ever make me think of him ever again dammit!
Sounds good to me. I could use the help, I never seem to laugh at any of your jokes.
Well, one of us is about to enter a life of luxury supported by a Kickstarter trust fund suggested by the other. The minute we hit the kickstart reach goal I'll gift CLord the toughness prize in perpetuity.
You can get a "Tough Guy Honorable Mention" certificate for a modest $50 contribution. "Grizzled Internet Cynic" certificates are a more generous $100.
Okay, maybe lessons aren't necessary.
Pastor King, between supporting Kim Jong Un as you do with your hateful "puppet" rhetoric and hiding your O'brien chin, mark this as notice you are no longer on my "I'd hit that" list.
This is patently absurd.
Obviously, if my intent in the taking of my picture were to hide an embarrassing facial feature, I would have figured out a way to conceal my rapidly lengthening forehead.
I highly doubt Brady is/would be offended by this, so nobody else should get all pissy about it either. It's a joke.
Everybody loved Hoke's chicken comment and playing the chicken dance after the win.
Gawd, I can't believe it took this long in the thread for someone to mention this.
Anyone who laughed at that and gets righteously ANGAR over the Ohio guy needs a slight re-examination. I mean, the coloring book joke is funny. First time I heard it I laughed so hard I fell off my woolly mammoth.
I think we should beat OSU more.
I hear coaches poke fun at rivals at fundraisers, alumni events...
I was like, "Yeah, knowing Tom, he'd probably think that was hilarious."
Then I realized he meant Brady Hoke, and I had to rethink for another minute.
Then I was like, "Yeah, knowing Brady, he'd probably think that was hilarious."
Why in 2014 does everyone get so butt hurt? OMG a jab from our most hated rival. Shocking. Oh and I am sure Brady is crying himself to sleep while holding his crayons.
The Ohio audience: "What are books?"
Here's the other one that was tweeted out from that event...
Ed Warinner: "If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
— Marcus Hartman (@marcushartman) April 2, 2014
That shows what he knows. I was just in Pasadena on Sunday watching the basketball game. What an idiot.
And come to think of it, watching a basketball game in March is a great way to never have to deal with Ohio fans.
I just find it pretty funny myself. You know it isn't a crime to laugh at a joke even when it's directed at you (or your favorite team). If one of our coaches or friends or whatever said something as funny about another teams coach we would all be laughing too. Honestly...I just don't know why people can't seem to grow some thicker skin. Laugh it off and move one, while hoping it provides some extra motivation to kick OSU's stinking asses.
His comment is a much greater insult to Luke Fickell and Kerry Combs than it is to Brady Hoke.
Exactly, they did a great job of holding Michigan's coloring book offense to only 41 points (which easily could have been 43). Sheesh, perhaps the Ohio coach shoulda looked at last year's box score first.
I don't want to know how many days until the Ohio game because I feel that the buckeyes are going to smack Michigan.
Yeah yeah yeah, bring on the down votes. Sorry, but that is just my opinion. There is no way Braxton will lose his final game in Columbus.
So Braxton is just going to will the team to victory regardless of how well Michigan plays or how badly OSU plays?
It's just that place. We haven't won in Columbus in about 357 years, so I don't expect that to end any time soon. The best I can hope for anymore with this rivalry is just winning most home games and plucking a win in Columbus here and there.
But I'm disappointed now.
241 days till The Game.
So now were reduced to being all butt-hurt over something mean the OSU OC said about our HC? Seriously?
I'm sorry but boo-fucking-hoo.
If we hadn't gotten our asses kicked by them for some ridiculous length of time then they wouldn't be saying anything. The only reason they are is because we have royally SUCKED at beating them for the past 13 years or so.
The only logical response now is to send Fickell a coloring book with the cover replaced that says Michigan Playbook. Include a box of crayons and a friendly note that says "Just trying to help, GO BLUE!"
Welp, guess I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight! This is a travesty and an affront to my very personhood!
They never disappoint.
This is a diversion. Don't fall for it. Keep the focus on one thing, one thing only:
I am not surprised by anything Douchey coming from them.
"The overwhelming unimportance of this leaves me speechless."
With that said...I could careless,and I'm sure the staff isn't worried about this either,kicking ass and having one more point than they do...ALL THAT MATTERS!!!
Urban is a piece of garbage.
F*** Ohio, their coaches, and their fans.
Sooooo, what I'm hearing is that coloring books aren't cool anymore?
*throws coloring books away*
*digs one back out*
Fans of a university that mockingly calls one university another university's name complain about class and respect.
Sheesh. Glass houses you guys.
Did you read the thread? I don't really think that many folks are upset.
I don't think this is on par with the ohio/TTUN thing.
Also, fans say stupid crap all the time. When a coach takes a personal jab at another coach, especially one who is so respected and well liked by his peers, it's embarrassing.
Anyways, he is an OSU coach so the shoe fits I suppose. go blue, beat Ohio!
