That exchange was definitely endearing.

Drew said, you mentioned winning the Big 10 as a goal but not National Championship. Shouldn't NC be a goal.
Drew: Why not?
Hoke: Because you have to win your conference to even start thinking about NC.
Drew: But shouldn't your ultimate goal be NC
Hoke: No. repeats answer
Drew: Other teams go for NC and conference championship is a consolation.
Hoke: I have 5 conf. champ. rings and one NC ring. Those conf champ rings are not a consolation.

Is it possible for you to say "ohio" and "state" in the same sentence?
|4 years 46 weeks ago||You're probably right||
FWIW, I'm still hoping for Patterson but I doubt he'd leave the sweet set-up he's got right now.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Malzahn?||
Maybe because the coach he wants to interview next is in Glendale, AZ and is busy tonight?

Beat me to it.

How do you feel about Josh Groban?
|4 years 46 weeks ago||and how would this affect||
and how would this affect your playcalling on third down?
This drove me crazy about RR and McGee. We'd have a third and ten, not in range of of our kickers (ie. not inside the ten), we know we're going to go for it on fourth down, and they call long pass play. Incomplete pass, now we have a 4th and 10.
If you know you're going to go for it on fourth down, then you don't have to try to get all of it on third down.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Easy Question.||
Easy. Marry Oprah ($$$), do your wife and kill Babwa Waltahs.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||thank you||
That was driving me crazy.

Subtle. I like it. Your clever.

My question is which hire would have kept Mallet here?
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I wouldn't place all of the||
I wouldn't place all of the blame on Gibson. Go back and re-read Brian's UFR's during Schafer's tenure. He made some pretty boneheaded scheme decisions.
BTW, I would have liked to see RR year 4 and a new defensive staff too but to be fair, he did have the opportunity to hire two DC's and failed both times. I could see DB being pessimistic about RR being able to hire the right DC and fix the defense.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Ordinarily I'd say, yeah,||
Ordinarily I'd say, yeah, there's a good chance that DC hired as HC would re-hire McGee but at this point I doubt McGee has any interest in staying. The hostile local media, the huge portion of the fan base that never accepted him and RichRod, etc. I think it's just too much negativity for someone who is loyal to RichRod.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I'd always heard that he||
I'd always heard that he didn't want to uproot his family. Sort of eerily similar to JH, huh? I'd heard that his wife didn't want to move anywhere, thus the reports that it was between the 49ers and Stanford.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Orcs.||
I think you meant orcs.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I don't know, but I wish we'd||
I don't know, but I wish we'd moved on Muschamp when we had the chance.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||This ^^||
|4 years 46 weeks ago||This foe is beyond any of you!||
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I wish Muschamp was on that list||
I'm disappointed DB didn't make up his mind on RR sooner so we could have had a chance at Muschamp. I think that was a great hire and Florida is going to continue to be a powerhouse for a long time.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I like the way you think.||
I just hope the "not hiring" part comes true.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Fine. Be mad at Michigan...||
But still be loyal. I'm mad at a lot of elements of Michigan right now but it is still my school and I would still say it's name with pride if I were in the NFL. I love Lloyd too, but I'd never say Lloyd Carr's University of Michigan.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||This is undoubtedly the best||
This is undoubtedly the best post I've seen by a Hoke opponent. Well said, sir.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Not the dumbest fanbase in the country||
But maybe (temporarily) the most insane fanbase in the country.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I'd love to see Loeffler come back||
This is one thing that I really like about Hoke: the possibility of him bringing Loeffler back. I think bringing Loeffler back would really help our QB recruiting and development and the offense as a whole.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||At least the new meme gives||
At least the new meme gives you a lot more flexibility in choosing a new coach.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||8-4? Maybe...||
We should temper our expectations based on how many players transfer and which players transfer. If we lose a lot of the upperclassmen that Rich Rod recruited, we're in for a painful season no matter who is hired.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I guess "cut him some slack" was a poor choice of words||
I don't think you were being hard on him. You're right: there's nothing wrong with using this opportunity to bring attention to Stanford. I just think that the delay in his decision is due to sincere thought and exploration. I don't think it is a strategic effort to help Stanford (as you suspect) or himself (as many others on this board have suggested).
I don't really have much to base my opinion on except the fact that he hasn't said anything himself to create this attention. All the articles, tweets, and board posts have all come from media and fans and their speculation about him.
