"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
Video: Hoke's BTN Interview
Sounds like Devin will be playing some WR. Nice!
Denard pretty sharp with his throws. Gallon impressed. Bolden is going to be a really good LB. And calm down on the Gardner WR talk.

but Hoke referencing it might indicate it's a giant smoke screen.
Could also be that rittenberg is indicating Gardner's not doing so hot in his tryout for WR. Wouldn't be that unbelievable considering he's not a wide receiver... I know he's a great athlete and all but so are the guys who have been playing WR for years already.
Could also be that Rittenberg is a huge tool and really doesn't know what he's talking about.
It looks like Hoke has recieved some coaching as well. He has his "well..." usage down to 1.08 per minute; well below his average of 1.74 per minute last year.
I'm pretty sure it's much higher than that. Dude would have failed my "oral rhetoric" class. Still love it though.
Hehe...you said "oral"
Lol, yeah. I made it up but I just love how we don't have to worry about what silly comment he made at a press conference or interview. In light of recent current events I can say that I am really proud to have him as the coach of this great university.
EDIT: not that I wouldn't be anyways, but it makes me appreciate it that much more.
Yes sir. No one I'd rather have as our coach right now.
In light of the Bobby Petrino fiasco down in Arkansas ... I think we can be pretty well assured *our* coach won't be caught doing anything so stupid. He preaches a message of honor and integrity and I'd be willing to bet my left nut he lives it to a T. Seriously.
I love Brady Hoke. I confess my man-crush.
He's a frickin' laser beam when it comes to fundamentals.
I can see how players bust their balls to play for this man. Hell, I'm banging my head against my keyboard right now -- sd;lkfjas;kfjasf ;kasjf;asdkf, see? -- begging to get into the game.
No better coach in college football in my opinion. None.
A lot of coach talk in this interview, but for some reason i think everything Hoke says he fully believes. Regardless, more football talk means we are just that much closer to September.
NEEDZ MOAR TREMENDUSES
figure out how many times he follows "well" with "you know"?
Can't wait to hear the pads cracking on Saturday!
