Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

|1 week 1 day ago||Overlap with Auto Show?||
Since the CFB NCG is played in the first two weeks of January, and the NA Int'l Auto Show is typically right around that time, seems to me that it might be a shit show for football fans trying to get last minute hotel rooms during that period. I believe most of the 'quality' hotel rooms in the downtown are sold out, especially for the first few days of the NAIAS and during press week.
Would the NA Int'l Auto show consider pushing their event back a week to not suck up all the downtown hotels? Should Detroit win this bid, that would have to be coordinated, or else each would have a major impact the other.

Blake was one of my favorite guys over the last few years, despite having some difficult recent games...was hoping for big things for him as part and with the support of our lock-down D this year.
Glad he got his degree, but nevertheless, I haz a sad.

Is this grassroots and will it motivate and unite the entire fan base?

I don't recall the particulars of Hoke's release, but is there language which indicates he doesn't get the remaining buy-out cash if he takes a job elsewhere? If that's the case, I can't blame him for not taking a position coach hiring (presumably at a significant pay cut) vs holding out for another HC gig.
Besides, could you imagine the good natured Hoke working for that fire breathing Kelly?

Sharp: "If one of your young, brash & confident players makes a game outcome guarantee, what would you tell him?"
JMFH: "I'd tell him he better be ready to deliver on that guarantee."
Not really a great question, IMO, however I like JH's response in that there is no reprimand to the player, just ensure your actions can back up those checks your mouth just wrote.

mgoblue.com says they're carrying the presser live. They'll also keep it there if you can't watch it live.

With the huge beer market in TX, Bells needs to be here now. Friggen Alabama has Bells for cripes-sake. Need it in lone star country.

This feels so much like the 2012 WS against the Giants...we seem to alway hit the hot team and can't do schitt.

Hmmm, surprised that Scherzer is starting (well, not really), I read yesterday it was going to be Price.

Not sure if I'll still be in the DFW area in a decade, but if I'm here (or even if I'm not), I would go to Austin to see team 14X play there.
My Cool Story Bro:
Actually went to a UT game in Austin about 4-years ago, just when the wheels were beginning to come off the Mack Brown bus. UT actually lost that day to a mediocre Iowa State squad, and it was amazing how nice and relatively hinged (as opposed to un-hinged) the UT faithful remained. No boos, jeers, and very few explatives were heard from my section. Nicest fans I've ever come across. Not to mention many lovely ladies, excellent BBQ at many tailgates. And, 6th Street in Austin cannot be beat for post-game libations and revelry.
One thing that did strike me that day...adverts in the stadium. I never realized up to that point how much it detracts from the in-stadium experience. Made me understand how much we need to keep up the good fight at UM and keep that part of our game-day experience unchanged.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Nicely done.||
Don't let DB get a glimpse of this though, looks like fireworks are being shot out of the stadium...or lasers.
That'll never happen (crossing fingers).
