After DB is done interviewing Harbaugh, Gruden, Miles, Harbaugh, and Patterson, what happens when he finally gets to Hoke? And Hoke says, NO? Where do we turn then? Hoke is a great coach. He loves UM, but everyone has their limits on self-respect or when being disrespected!
Who is our choice after Brady Hoke?
See that kitten in the banner?
much like Michigan State was to me.....
Hoke would take the job as a volunteer.
Excrement came out of my ears as I read this post.
Can they get any worse?
Sad thing is, I'm sure they will...
We are grabbing at straws for content I think. Hasn't Hoke already said if we come knocking that he will take the job?
Yup. Hokes our safety net right now.
I have it on good authority (my own) that Hoke is camped out at San Diego Int'l Airport buying tickets to every flight to Detroit and staring at his phone waiting for Dave Brandon to call.
I'm picturing that little kid in the Disney commercial, "I'm toooo excited to sleeeeeep."
I have a source that tells me BH left a message on DB's voicemail saying:
"Hey Dave, I was in the shower, thought you might've called... Call me back!"
Great, now I'm forced to confront the idea of Brady Hoke showering. This is worse then the time I learned Tressel had kids.
the thought of Brady Joke as our coach?
Actually I have it on good authority the voicemail went something like this:
or like this...
Come to think of it, Hoke looks a little like Jon Favreau. I can see him checking his messages every five minutes. So who, then, is Vince Vaughan?
Not sure who "Double Down" Trent is in this situation but we should definitely hire him if we find him. This would have been a killer halftime speech to our defense this year.
He is going to camp out in DB's front yard.
In all seriousness, I can't fault the guy for being enthusiastic and vocal about it being his dream job. Honestly, I think all of us wish that we had a bunch of coaches excited about coming here.
Not sure where you got this idea from but that is not the common sentiment on this board. We have talent in place, how have we given up 4 years?
WTF is your point?
WTF is YOUR point?
Brian told us about him the other day, remember?
If we get that far I want him to turn us down because I absolutely do not want him coaching Michigan at all. I'd rather take someone else.
I remember when only 1 in 6 threads made me bash my head against a table.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. After we sign whoevr we sign, we only have about 8 months of going back and forth about whether or not we made the right hire....then it's football season again!
we won't have any top flight recruits over which we can argue about redshirting.
This place is getting more retarded everyday.
I was thinking that we have been thrashing for about a week.
If so its all about how you play your cards. You ask the right questions and DB being a former CEO knows the right questions to ask to make sure that there is no doubt that when offering the position that the coach will accept and will accept immediately. The ball is still in our court and will remain there.
This worked out really well for DB when he was trying to bring JH back to A2.
You're a silly.
Haha, that would suck a little more than this maybe.
You mean who is our choice before Hoke, right, RIGHT? Hoke basically already said yes (and not in the speculative Harbaugh way). Who care whose after him then. If we are asking that the world is already over.
Do we keep starting the same threads? Miles will be announced by Wednesday!
There is a school of thought that the interest in Miles is simply to satisfy the Bo Schembechler faction of the Michigan athletic department, and that Brady Hoke is the intended target all along.
They also say a source indicates that Miles' wife Kathy doesn't want to move the family to Ann Arbor. And they link Mgoblog for the Gruden rumors.
ESPN have proven that they know fuck all, just like Rivals and Scout and everyone else. Don't pay for that insider crap. They don't know anything. They're likely making shit up to make it seem like insdier subscriptions are worth it.
And Brady Hoke would be a hire to satisfy the Bo Schembechler faction (whatever that is). He coached under Bo's successors.
Have they started rumors before! I could really care about the Bo theory! He is the best available right now and after the mum interview could I be wrong? If it was Hoke he would have been announced a week ago!
I agree. The last think Hoke would need would be fewer recruiting days for the sake of a smoke screen.
If that's DB's strategy, he's not just incompetent, he's kinda dumb. There's no way they're playing a placate the old guard game and burning recruiting days.
This was my theory several days ago. Did ESPN give me credit?
We'll rely on the resources at Google Labs to build a coach using game based simulations and past history to make playcalls. The AUTO-COACH 120000 will not have a buyout, but will produce a DAMN STRONG team....
After watching the LSU/Tex A&M game for the fifth time, I am convinced that a Miles hire will minimize transfers, make Denard happy and will pay off short term for UM in wins. Jefferson is about 1/2 the player that Denard is and he had ample opportunity to run and throw in that offense.
For a second there I was like, whoa, that's a huge swing for M-Wolv having previously been so vehemently anti-Miles, and then I was like, wait, that's not M-Wolv, it's just his avatar.
Stunned me for a sec too. Whats up with all the avatar steeling ?
Who is Brady Hoke?
Please add \s after that statement, I just about blew a gasket reading that haha
The first defensive minded ball boy that applies.
Who we choose before him.
A fifth of jack.
Not necessarily for us (although I think it would be awesome)- why isn't Bill Cowher ever mentioned for any head coaching jobs?
