Its -11 here in sunny Fort Wayne, Indiana.
I do NOT think Brady Hoke would wear a coat in this weather.
spoiler alert: i linked this
If Brady had any sense, he would.
Headset, Noh coat!!!!!
If he didn't, he'd probably die.
edit-sorry, its -34, not -24.
You still haven't answered the OP's question.
a 1 upper?
It is about 15 degrees warmer than that (4 degrees) and falling here in Belleville, MI. The wind is from the west-southwest at 21 MPH and gusting well over 30 MPH, which basically makes it feel like around 20 below zero outside. Based on the ambient temperature alone, I am pretty sure Hoke - at minimum - would break out a shirt with slightly longer sleeves at least and perhaps double up on layers.
Also from belleville mi. I agree with what he said
Now we just need Kevin Saunderson to chime in.
Still above zero here in beautiful Pinckney, Michigan. 3 degrees and a howling wind. I believe Coqch Hoke would go double T-shirt under the polo, but no coat. And DEFINITELY no headphones/earmuffs!
didn't we get a ridiculous amount of snow out here in pinckney? I ended up with about 17 of the fresh stuff (north side of portage represent!)
I moved away in 2000, but grew up there...good to see a few Pirates on the board.
PHS class of '96.
Stay warm up there...it will be 12 degrees here in central NC tonight, with wind chill at -1...that is pretty dern cold for these parts too.
Was that before or during the Pinckney heroin epidemic?
Weed was big and a little acid and VERY little coke at PHS in my day....glad I got out before the heroin craze hit.
I'm just one of those annoying people that moved to Pinckney for the chain of lakes, sailing and windsurfing out my backyard while working in Ann Arbor? Heaven.
Feels like -39 here in schererville Indiana. No coat but a headset to keep ears warm.
It's a balmy 4 degrees at work here in Redford (no windchill factor). So no. He might even throw on some swim trunks and take his shirt off.
I think he'd only wear a banana hammock.
Interesting note from Jonathon Goodwin. Take note Brady.
Another resident tough guy, center Jonathan Goodwin, who makes his living in the middle of the NFL trenches, agreed: “I have no problem wearing sleeves. I think it’s safe to say you’ll see something on my arms. I gave up on the don’t-wear-sleeves-and-look-tough thing a long time ago.”
If the Bengals o-line could wear short sleeves in the Freezer Bowl, Hoke could survive this without a coat.
Most of the guys playing in Green Bay yesterday were sans sleeves also. Once you're moving around and sweating, you can probably manage without sleeves. Granted, wind chill is probably worse on wet skin, so there is that.
Of course, Brady isn't running around playing, so I'd venture that he'd be wearing something more than a polo and that too-long tee shirt he likes.
I remember that game far too well. The announcers coffee froze solid in the booth in the first half. Speaking of the first half, it wasn't pretty for a Bengals fan. Took a walk at halftime. Didn't even care about the temp.
Other cool story. That QB and I are alums of the same college. Go Augie!
It's approximately -1000 here in Chicago. I am responding by sitting in bed watching Friday Night Lights on Amazon Prime. I suspect Hoke might, too.
Eric Taylor for OC.
Temperance, MI. -25 Windchill. Hot hands and a 3/4tee.
Bedford had a hell of a team this year, a couple very exciting playoff games. Beat my hornets in a thriller
Feels like -30 now in Temperance! Woo!
Nice round 0 degrees here in Ann Arbor wind chill -24 if he didn't wear sleeves he'd get frostbite in 5-10 minutes
-6 here in sunny Marysville, OH. Wind chill made my face numb on the way to work this morning. There is some speculation on whether Hoke will weat sleeves. But he not may in fact, due to Michigan jersey sales, which are peaking. I'm getting some reports that the tide of this storm has begun to shift, and that warmer weather will be here very soon.
-17 in Madison, WI
Warmed up 1 deg in the past hour.
said only -15.
and actually started!
Cold cranking power.
Maybe he'd get a short sleeve winter coat made.
He could always sport a sweater vest and tie.
-6 in Columbus.
I'm going to go out in just shorts in a few hours to experience the worst of it.
I actually went to high school in Fort Wayne...my mom sent a pic yesterday about halfway through the storm. It looked like Hoth.
It's a sweltering 18* here in Pittsburgh. Hoke would be wearing shorts and drinking a Pina Colada.
52-ish and rainy in Danbury, CT. Go home, cold front, you're drunk.
-13 near Lafayette, IN. Winchill has it feeling like -41. Time for a snowball fight.
It's 9 degrees with windchills hovering around 0.
I made the mistake of getting the kids and their stuff in the car in barefeet and no gloves this morning when the windchill was -8. I thought I could handle it being born and raised in Michigan. Nope, that's just plain out cold.
This is the coldest i've experienced Nashville since living here for 14 years.
It is a balmy 50 in New York right now, with rain and fog. Brady would not be wearing a coat, likely shorts in fact.
we're sharing. It's coming your way tomorrow.
Brady would be OMG shirtless here in Cleveland, OH.
northshore. Hoke would slather on some bear grease and grab a Slushy if we played Northwestern today.
-44 wind chill here in Mequon WI right now. Nobody in their right mind is out and about today, so I've got a long day of reading all your posts today. Make them good!
Holy crap! That is wild. +1 to you sir for keeping me entertained!
It's 40 in DC right now, but supposed to fall sharply down to single digits tonight, I hope at the very least he'd plan to layer...
But the arctic blast is reaching all the way down here. We will be at 32 for the low.
better put anti-freeze in the pool just in case
The warm spot on here. 0 in Grand Rapids, -23 wind chill. Thankful for Lake Michigan as our blanket...a thin blanket.
No shit! That wonderful lake is the difference between us being 0 degrees and -20 degrees!
But if this weather continues, your beautiful blanket will freeze over and you'll suffer like the rest of us upwind of the lakes. FREEZE, LAKES, FREEZE! If I suffer, all must suffer.
It's -11 here in Muncie, IN...windchill factor is -36
Ditching 80 in south Florida for -10 later tonight in AA, feeling more like -40. I am sad.
9 degrees here in Nashville, let's hope we don't play here since Vandy would beat us by four TD's.
With the wind, maybe he wears long sleeves only. Tomorrow he probably sneaks a thermal shrit underneath.
would he be wearing a headset?
Crazy warm today, 1 Celsius, which is 34 in farenheit, google tells me. Brady would be loving it shortsleeved here I am sure.
Friday however was -30 before the wind, -22 for y'all. Brady would have been in the booth with Borges.
He would still get frost bite because the coat didn't execute.
I've always thought Hoke not wearing a coat is just dumb. It doesn't make you tough it makes you an idiot.
I don't know why he does it because I highly doubt it's a motivating tool that works effectively.
Has he consulted with Dave Brandon?
My car showed -19 this morning on my way to work in the NW suburbs of Chicago. Wind chills were around -41. So maybe a windbreaker and earmuffs.
-11 outside, but a balmy 46 inside here in Indianapolis. Power went out during the Packers game yesterday.
MUCH better than this morning when it was 21 below with windchill of -40. For a game this morning he might have had to wear a jacket for a play or two as he got used to the cold.
Brady would for sure be sleeveless here in Big Sky, MT today. A balmy 24 with lots of sun. All of you in "the vortex" keep that skin covered and take your time on the road.
Pretty sure it wouldn't have prevented the brain freezes he had this past season.
It might. Hoke being a big guy, maybe he doesn't feel the cold as much, but I would like him to be using energy for his brain rather than merely keeping warm - especially when it's cold & rainy, so you're losing more body heat. In those conditions I wish he'd put a hat and jacket on. I think looking like a coach would be better than looking bedraggled while trying to show toughness.
Get this - you know you live in the South when you have a 2 hour school delay announced a day in advance because it will be 12 degrees in tomorrow morning. No snow, no ice, just cold - but not so much relatively.
Dang it ... I had to take the backflow preventer off my irrigation, shut off the hose bibs inside and will be putting a drop light in the garage with the boat motor tonight.
Oh, and Brady Hoke would be in shorts and shirt sleaves here I am sure.
It's days like today that I'm glad I don't live in michigan anymore. But it's supposed to be cold tonight. Might have to turn my heat on for a change.
a sweltering 45 and rainy in scenic Beverly, MA. Hoke would be in shorts.
Hoke would wear a jacket and a headset as earmuffs.
It would mark the end of the "Brady Hoke Pointing at Things" phenomenon, what with his fingers being amputated due to frostbite and such.
Probably a sweater vest
It's 79 here at the beach in Los Angeles today. Brady Hoke would not wear a coat.
Hoke never wore that long sleeve T in San Diego (currently 73).
Maybe it's electric underwear, with an electronic sound system built in.
Living on the Canadian prairie right now. Got down to -53 celcius (-63 fahrenheit) with the windchill. Brady Hoke would die quickly if he didn't wear a coat.
Upvoted because Christ you need it out there.
-20 ish in Duluth. It was -27 some time before noon and will be again, pending cloudcover; I suspect Hoke would wear a coat.
If he didn't, he would have to be evacuated to a local hospital, and Al Borges would take over. Sending many other people to hospitals.
EDIT: Windchills of -55 at night, -45 during the day.
It was 36 in Austin today. Hoke would definitely have worn a light jacket.
