Happy B-day Coach Hoke! Take a swig of the beverage of your choice from the Lil Brown Jug to celebrate. (On second thought, that's probably ill advised.)

Abigail & Emily 12 years old today as well. They got to meet coach at fan day this year, and like him alot. Although both girls, and my 8 yr old daughter are in love with Jake Ryan after meeting him!

Happy Bday coach Hoke! Proud to have such a great representative of our program and university as the head coach. Here's to another great year and many more to come.

I like Coach Hoke.  I was watching his reaction on the sideline today to both good plays and bad ... it's the same:  a calm, determined focus on playing solid football and winning.  I can only imagine how that translates to players -- do well, a slap on the helmet and "nice job" ... make a mistake and a coaching lesson, a slap on the helmet and "do better next time."

If I wasn't 53 years old, somewhat overweight and really out of shape ... hell, I'd try out for the team, eat glass and chew nails for the man.

He's a credit to the team, to the University, and the historic legacy of Michigan football.
