Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

|1 week 1 day ago||My first play of collegiate football||
I had just made the travel team, and we were playing at Sam Houston State. First play was on the kick-off team halfway throught the first quarter. Our kicker hurt his knee in practice, but still tried kicking and shanked the kick-off. An up back picked up the ball and tried to advance it. It was obvious that he wasn't used to carrying the ball because he tried to change directions without looking to where he turning. he war directly to me and I ear-holed him. It was a complete decleater. As I ran off the field, I heard some of my team mates saying that I would make the league because I could hit. That play was the acme of my playing career.

Strike first, strike hard! Show no mercy!

The only person good enough to punch Chuk Norris was Bruce Lee! He's back from the dead? And a soccer fan?

May be a contributing factor!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||As a black male||
We in this country have freedom of speech. I appreciate the enemy I know, as opposed to one that I don't. They should just be outed for the racists that they are, and have to deal with society knowing about them for the rest of their life, unless they make wholesale changes!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Or||
If you press charges, details of the incident might become public knowledge. Sometimes better to lick your wounds and walk away!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Not true||
It's a sensationalism tactic to desensitize people to violence. So instead of people helping they just film. Worldstar shows violence of all races, no matter who it is.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||While I agree||
Sometimes you run across a group that has one or two "I don't care about life" types. It's best to take an ass whipping than to be killed with your own weapon. Tough to get out in class quarters.
|11 weeks 4 hours ago||I played tackle football from||
I played tackle football from the age of 7 until I was 21. I only stopped because of injury and eventually I wasn't good enough to progress to the NFL. I also coached HS and little league for a total of seven years after my playing days. The biggest factor that usually is missed in all of these discussions is equipment. Many of the injuries that occur happen because the helmet is either oversized or not strapped up properly. I played FB/LB in HS and LB in college, and I was always in big time collisions and only suffered one concussion. I believe this was only possible because I always wore my equipment properly. As a coach I had to correct other coaches on proper fit for helmets as well as other equipment. When I see all of these professional athletes and college athletes not wearing their helmets properly I cringe because many of the young kids watching are going to emulate this behavior. (and the cycle continues) Concussions as well as other injuries can still occur but properly wearing one's equipment can drastically reduce the occurences.

LC was notorious for sticking with his game plan for too long and not adapting! Jim Herrmann made me want to pull my hair out! (I'm a black man with very short hair, tweezers would definitely have to have been used) You are correct, Michigan was considered to be the place where superior talent came to die! But this is the polar opposite, we have talent on this roster! Coaching will get all we can out of that talent and translate in onto the field.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||He damn sure should be!||
He damn sure should be! Talent plus actual coaching makes for bad things for the rest of the conference!
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Seemingly||
I've been told I'm going to die from shock! lol
|16 weeks 6 days ago||My hair just stood up!||
I wish I was still able to play! I'm ready to hit something!
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Each NFL Game||
uses multiple game balls. So, NE would've had to have all twenty or so balls deflated? If they managed to have that done without anyone's knowledge, why wouldn't it have also helped the Colts? (If it improved grip)
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Wow||
I think the game would have ended differently if the GB D back wouldn't have gone down after the interception like the game was over. He gave up at least another 10-15 yards. Great resilience by the Seahawks!

If you go this far in depth, you probably are doing well!
|19 weeks 2 days ago||You making fun of Tyson?||
"it'd probably make things wirth with his off-field issues"
|19 weeks 2 days ago||I think he is in for a rude||
I think he is in for a rude awakening! Teams are likely to shy away from him because of his perceived lack of maturity. Johnny football's has been paving the way for teams to start considering maturity even more!
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Straight from a post||
"UM has almost no high level talent on that roster, none. If no one transfers they might have 1 or 2 players on their whole roster who would start for us. It's a full rebuilding job and it's going to take longer than a couple years no matter who they are able to bring in to coach."
This is the sentiment from most fan bases. They have no clue what talent we have, they are just going by the premise that just because our last coaching staff couldn't develope offensive talent properly that must mean that there isn't any! We will surprise most people with how competetive we will be next year.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Same with me||
Except they're saying, "you guys still don't have any talent", and "It'll be at least 2 years before he can turn it around"
They know the end is near!
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Seahawks would then have to||
Seahawks would then have to lose a game. That can happen with them playing the Rams next week, it just isn't likely because they'll know that theyr're playing for home field advantage. As for the Lions, just take it one game at a time like coach Caldwell wants.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Why yes it was 1991!||
But when is the last time Detroit has had a defense this good? Stop raining on our parade!
|22 weeks 22 hours ago||Make sure to post any||
Make sure to post any information that you get! We won't out him as your source! I promise!
|23 weeks 2 days ago||So...||
Does this mean that Football is definitely going to get better? Obviously, the universe won't allow us to be good at both!
|23 weeks 4 days ago||If the conference is taking this step||
Then the conference trainer will have the ultimate say. They will have strict guidlines to follow. Protocol is already in place, this is to insure the safety of the athletes. I applaud this, and I believe that it will be inplemented by most conferences in the near future.

Take one for the team!!
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Unfortunately||
I stopped caring about this year after i saw how terribly we looked against ND. I still went to most of the games, but my interest in all college football was pedestrian at best. If either of these coaches are hired, I may give up college football all together!
|23 weeks 5 days ago||I doubt that either...||
One of these guys is hired as our next coach. However in the off chance that this happens, please record this for us! I'm sure you will be compensated with MGoPoints!
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Most had their hearts set on Whisenhunt!||
Everyone had written Coach Caldwell off because Whisenhunt was the "darling" of the open coaches. But Caldwell is known for his preperation and accountability. Is he the biggest personality? Not by a long shot! But he does have this team game planning at a level that is consistent with some of the upper echelon teams!
