Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

I'm definitely going to get everything framed and then put it in my masement (get it? Man+Basement=Masement) with all my other cool gear. I'll probably have to take something down.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Agreed, it seems as though||
Agreed, it seems as though that using base salary would be the best measure. This would benefit schools with technical programs, Engineering, B-School, the like, and severely disadvantage tiny LACS. I remember even decades ago when I was doing my undergrad work at the Business School they loved to show you how much you would make right after undergrad.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I would definately get some||
I would definately get some for my son and his football team, although I'm not sure if there are as many M fans in Connecticut.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Damn, I'd pay good money for||
Damn, I'd pay good money for a shot like that. One of those huge pictures you can put over your fireplace. Especially because it is a night game, the contrasts would be great.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Brady, what an awesome name.||
Brady, what an awesome name. I wish I could say Tom was the inspiration for my son with my second wife's name (Brady), but Tom came about 12 years too late.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Just wondering, how does A &||
Just wondering, how does A & M's fanbase compare to the rest of Texas? I.E. 25%, 35%, 50% of the population. Is it centered around any city? What about Houston/SMU/Rice/Baylor?Texas/Tech, etc?
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Agreed, I'd do Chandler Park||
Agreed, I'd do Chandler Park if you have a chance, but since I believe it's a night game I'd suggest going to dinner in Chicago. I'd reccomend The Firehouse on Michigan Ave, Tru, or The Signature Room then heading out to the tailgate in Chandler Park (I was slghtly bored the year I went).
|3 years 36 weeks ago||ZOMG What's he doing||
ZOMG What's he doing now??? My driver left the ladder I usually stand on to look in his window everynight back at home tonight.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Why would he do that??? It||
Why would he do that??? It seemed like it worked well for DR last year, I think only on that one run did he ever encounter a problem (his shoe fell off). I don't see why Borges should involve himself in player's clothing, unless it will REALLY have influence on the game.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I walked by him on the field||
I walked by him on the field before the game and it looked as though he was having a great time. I imagine he still did by the end of the game, but I was sitting in the boxes not around the recruits. If anyone did sit near the recruits, did they look excited? Overhear anything? I noticed the 2012 and 2013 recruits tended to talk to guys who are/would be in their classes.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I'll talk to my tech guy when||
I'll talk to my tech guy when he comes in to the office tomorrow, but can anyone gif these two hilarious videos of the celebration?

I'm waiting fo an early morning flight here in Tver Russia, so I started off with a mimosa in the car on the way to the airport and now thinking about getting a bottle of Walker Black Label for the flight back... it's a long one.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||You can buy them online from||
You can buy them online from Canada, although it's pricey for most. Copenhagen is just too precious to give up to the plastic casing, definately worth the $11.75 per tin, and that's American! I've had less expensive caviar.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Get||
Actually try espn360.com or just search around espn, a lot of stuff is posted. Or download an iPhone or iPad app.
But seriously get cable. It's the 21st Century.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I had sidelines passes for||
I had sidelines passes for that game (unfortunately it was on ND's side because my associate was an ND alum). The game was electric that day, I hope everyone has the chance to experience it just once in their lives, being that close to the game. Everytime I'm on the sidelines the game is just 100X better.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I got sideline passes from an||
I got sideline passes from an associate when the game was at ND (unfortunately I had be on ND's side of the field). Let me tell you, the feeling was absolutely electric at the game that day, I wish everyone has the opportunity to be that close to the game sometime, everytime I'm on the sideline for games it just makes the experience 10X better!
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I'm gonna say...||
UM wins: UM 33, ND 30.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||My jaw drops||
even more when you think about it, he's going to be a 5-star QB, probably #1 in the 2013 class, in a year where we desperately need WRs. I also liked the drills he was doing, definately more of what I have seen at college practices than at the high-school level.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Animals like those in Ohio||
Animals like those in Ohio couldn't stand the aristocratic smell of Skoal, they only dip Rooster and Longhorn. Being a Michigan Man myself, I prefer Copenhagen... imported from Canada because they still use the wax&wood bottom, not this bullshit plastic.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Hey do you want to trade||
Hey do you want to trade snack packs at lunch before recess? I have chocolate pudding but I'd trade you that for a fruit roll up and a Capri Sun.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||If we suppose that ND and||
If we suppose that ND and Pitt were added, Pitt would be one of the better academic schools in the conference as well. A lot of people in Pennsylvania view Pitt as a better school than PSU, Pitt has their massive medical industrial-complex, while PSU just wanted to be a cool tailgate spot with a lot of parties in the middle of Central Pennslvania.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Rutgers is good||
Rutgers is good academically.... really? This is the Big Ten we're talking about here, adding Rutgers will not HELP our academics. Ugh, even that name, "Rutgers"... could you choose an uglier name? I mean there isn't a Cambridge or Oxford U in the US... would've sounded a lot better than "Rutgers... that one random school is Jersey that really isn't known for anything."
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Well something I said seemed||
Well something I said seemed to have worked, haha!
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Excuse me, but I am not||
Excuse me, but I am not only a Michigan Man, but a largest shareholder in the largest chain of Porsche dealerships the nation. So please, I would appreciate it if you wouldn't mock a fellow Michigan Man or his product.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Watch that game more closely.||
Watch that game more closely. Michigan will be ND, believe me because I dropped a check with five 0's on this game, THAT's my confidence.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I flew out to see Riley and||
I flew out to see Riley and man, he is the real deal. Great talent, goes beyond just the size. Brady, get on this kid quickly or I will!
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Ok James Bond, this isn't||
Ok James Bond, this isn't North Korea. We don't need to establish a 20-year false backstory and have a fake marriage to get good parking to go to a football game.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I'm actually in Belgium by||
I'm actually in Belgium by chance this week for business. Not exactly Brazil, as the nation hasn't shut down for the game. Luckily my driver was listening to the BBC when I arrived so I remembered to head back to my hotel early from the club.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||At least our retro jerseys||
At least our retro jerseys have some history behind them. I feel like my son from my third marriage came up with the design for those jerseys, and he's 9!
|3 years 37 weeks ago||At a corporte event I||
At a corporte event I attended a few months ago, the owner of Under Armor spoke of how he was trying to really create a brand centered around innovation, which can be hard to do in the sports word, thus it leads to them only being able to make visual changes. On that same trip I got to meet Tom Brady and his lovely wife.
