Unverified Voracity Serves You W/ Flaming Piano

Hoke interviewed w/ bonus. Davy Rothbart got a one-on-one interview with Brady Hoke in which the man revealed he tears up at Hall and Oates songs, which is obvious in retrospect. He's just a big ol' bear. Grantland did not understand the power of the twosie and had space constraints*, so here are a couple of leftover bits from Mr. Rothbart:

Davy/Grantland: You've seen the pictures on MGoBlog of Taylor Lewan riding a "twosie" bicycle, right? What do you think of that?

Coach Hoke: [Laughing] Hey, we're happy if we can keep [the players] off of motorcycles. I'd say a twosie is okay in my book.

Hoke's favorite movies: "Silence of the Lambs. And A Few Good Men. What a powerful movie."

Hoke's favorite book: "Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell. It's the story of the U.S. Navy SEAL Team 10. A book about brotherhood, skills, and accountability."

Hoke's favorite food: "Pizza. My wife’s homemade pizza. We top it with hamburger, pepperoni, and maybe some feta cheese with some pepperoncinis. Artichoke hearts sometimes, and sliced tomatoes. My wife's sauce is the best. We have pizza night every Thursday night during football season.  This year will be our 33rd year doing it. Just me, my wife, and our daughter... and then I bring the leftovers in for the defensive line the next day."

Orson will be so happy about that last bit. You may remember that Rothbart is the FOUND guy. He's got a book coming out soon with what he promises are many Ann Arbor-based tales.

*[I know, it's the internet, don't ask me.]

Come for the spelling, stay for the crotch explosions. Shutdown Fullback is M-Bama oriented and taking gratuitous shots at MSU:

I need someone to make a college football themed collectible card game.

OPPONENT: Taps three boosters, plays AARON BURBRIDGE
SELF: plays NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE interrupt, taps Burbridge for three turns
SELF: taps two unofficial visits, plays JT FLOYD

…and so on.

Step your game up, block-MS-painters. You just got served:


Will this aggression stand, MS paint aficionados? Mmmm?

Epic Cato June. BHGP is still running down the top 25 Ferentz wins, and I knew this one was coming: their epic beatdown of #8 Michigan in 2002. I was at that game, and did not have real good time. (Are we still saying that?)

I mention it because Iowa has gifed the most Cato June thing of all time:


Okay, it's at least top five. #1 would have to be a GIF where June celebrates like Ray Lewis after someone else made a tackle 20 yards downfield.

And then he became a pro bowl linebacker. Football is weird.

Etc.: Joe Montana doesn't seem like a Brian Kelly fan. B&B on packaged plays and such. They're all the rage.

The past few days of mgoblog have severely diminished my productivity.  I just looked at the front page and there are four or five articles that I still need to catch up on.  I think Brian must have waited all summer compiling this stuff just to hit us with an unending cascade of magical rainbow that makes my head esplode.  Surely they can't keep it up at this pace.

A young Cato June took me and a few now lifetime friends to a football party during orientation. They charged us $5 for a cup. Rule number 1 is never charge for beer. Boom, frat boy'd.

My friends who went to other schools are always completely baffled at the notion that I never once paid for a cup at a party at Michigan, and don't know anyone who ever did.

What goes around comes around, I guess.  At some point, your house is the one covered in puke, urine, and red solo cups on Sunday morning, and you're even.

"Instead of having to guess what Mart Dantonio and Pat Narduzzi are going to call in terms of a coverage, the offense has an answer to each of the questions posed by the defense.*"

I went to the Utah game that was way 2 close 10-7 i think..and this crap Iowa game that year. I thought I was a jinx and didn't go to any more games untill RR's 2nd year.  At the time I felt like that was the worst loss in UofM history...haha we were spoiled back then

Thinking back to how I felt walking out of that 2002 Iowa game, it's really funny to think about how that moment felt like that was bad as it could possibly ever get.  Getting blown out on Homecoming, not being able to stop, well, anything, getting outplayed, losing by 26(!)...

How innocent those times were...

I think it was the worst home loss since the 60s, and it came the season after we got absolutely shellacked by Tennessee in the bowl game.  There was a long stretch there in the 90s and early 00s where the team never lost by more than 10 (I think the ND game in '98 was 16; even the Donovan McNabb debacle was only 10), and that got completely blown up twice in a 9-game period.  It was humbling.

Holy Shit!   Brady Hoke sees us on MGoBlog! We're, like, cool!

Brian references a post by B&B which references the post by TOC which references the post by Heiko which references the conversation I had with Chris Norman. The internet circle is now complete.
