Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

|1 day 22 hours ago||Wow...||
Today I learned - I'd get owned in a drawing contest with a 7 year old.
|4 days 2 hours ago||In hindsight||
|5 days 4 hours ago||Same.||
I read the headline as "Guy going to play quarterback at ND gets call from J(ohns) H(opkins) and switches to lacrosse."
And my first thought was - Good. To hell with Notre Dame.

|4 weeks 1 day ago||This explanation of events from another site had me in stitches.||
|4 weeks 4 days ago||To the OP, I really don't||
I just think that it would be a cool cultural clash and in no way meant this in a negative way. I grew up in the Mid Atlantic region, went to Michigan, and now live in the deep South. I just find the traditions and practices of each region to be cool in their own way. Imagine the Big House scattered with some southern girls in dresses and cowboy boots!

I would love for our WRs to become great. But I would think that would be harder to do with a coaching carousel. Additionally, I feel like WR is one of those positions where a kid can just have "it" and you know that their skills will likely transition well to the college game. Think Treadwell, Speedy Noil, Diggs... all kids that you could tell would likely be very good in College.

There is no way that question get's asked and you forget about the "accused" rape incident. All politics asside, that would be an event that I would NEVER forget if I were a kid.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I like Jedd||
I like Jedd and his brunt personality. Everything I've seen from interviews makes it seem likes he's a straight shooter. Now I have no idea how good of a coach he is, but he's had a lot of them even at the highest level.
I just wonder how long he is going to stay around. I would think that it has the potential to hurt WR recruiting, knowing that Jedd has never stayed in one place for too long. I seem to remember even Brian mentioning that this is likely a stepping stone for Jedd during the coaching interview. Because damn... we need some quality WRs to get on board.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed.||
DeMatha, Good Counsel, and (recently) Bullis are all strong prep schools that put out D1 prospects every year in MD. Nice to start a pipeline there.
EDIT: They are all very strong academic schools too. I knew kids from each who went on to Ivy's.

I would love to hear 110,000 people chear "aussie aussie aussie oy oy oy" when he punts at the Big House.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I'm fucking ashamed at some of these comments...||
Brady Hoke is a great man by all accounts, but was in over his head here at UofM. So he's taking a tour across the country and learning from a wide veriety of coaching philosiphies. Good for him.
It would have been just as easy for the man, who was fired from his DREAM JOB, to lay low for a while and not do anything to better himself. This constant making fun of OUR previous coach who's a true Michigan Man through and through needs to stop.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Two major things from this article..||
Wilkinson is the coach at Cocoa High School in Florida, a talent hotbed that includes Ohio State 2017 oral commitment Bruce Judson, a top-20 player in his class.
Dean had a second opinion from noted sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Wilkinson said Andrews' opinion was that Dean needed continued rehab on his knee and should be ready to resume full activities this summer.
I would assume this turns Bruce Judson off quite a bit. And sure looks like you're lying when arguably the best knee surgeon in the world says he should be good to go by summer.

Had a friend in college get an MIP and Drunken Disorderly... this was his punishment. Unfortunately for him, he didn't have a car on campus either, so many times he had to ride his bike over somewhere near State Street (I believe) to get breathalyzed. Twice a day.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Serious Question -||
What makes you think he's under the radar? He apparently attends a monster FB school in AL. If anything I would think he has had plenty of exposure.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, It's funny.||
I kept thinking to myself here is a boulder of a man who isn't that fast but has good balance and is hard to take down... but then there were times he just outran some defenders down the stretch. I'm not really sure how to take this.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Actually...||
I believe this would be an even bigger recruiting coup as we were in on Jaylen very late in the process and he has risen up the rankings his senior year while McGary fell a bit during his.
But I get your point!
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Works||
I didn't have any issues.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I blame Hoke. Seriously||
I blame Hoke. Seriously though, KJ wanted to commit at camp and Hole told him to hold off.

|8 weeks 3 days ago||Serious Question...||
Is he getting paid more money and therefore able to put in more effort, or has he just gotten better? Cause I agree that this years edit's are on a whole other level.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I thought the same thing.||
I really hope that he had approval from the recruit before sending this letter. Otherwise, I am not a fan of this tactic at all. It definitely would have to be for the right person.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe they'll be different stickers?||
Harbaugh seems to "travel the path less taken" so to speak... maybe the stickers will be different then the past? Just a though.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||100% Agree||
It really seems like Mattison is happy in his new role. I assume he knows he's getting older, has accomplished pretty much everything a defensive coach could ever want, and probably enjoys a bit more time to spend with family. I really like how things have played out with the staff.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Oh SHIT! Where'd the week go!?!||
|9 weeks 3 days ago||LOOK OUT!||
MileHighWolverine's jock-strap just dropped.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I understand why he stayed in AA...||
But damn, he sure sounds like a guy you'd want sitting in a recruit's living room, talking to the parents about academics and accountability.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||(No subject)||
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Lighten up man...||
I don't think he meant his post in a negative way at all. Kovacs was a hell of a player, and an obvious choice to compare to; being a walk-on and all.
Football season (and wins) can't come soon enough so everyone's damn jimmies can stop being ruffled so easily.
