OT: Hoke to wear headset this weekend

ESPN: Vols' interim coach Brady Hoke to wear headset in change from Michigan routine.

Glad we don't have to worry ourselves with this inane issue any longer. But, it is fun to laugh about it from afar. Rooting for him and the inevitable hilarity in the Hoke vs. Cajun Hoke clash this weekend.

*Clapping intensifies*

but the guy won 11 games one season and recruited the players that put more in the NFL draft than any other team all without violating any rules.  It was that close to a 12-win season having 4 cracks at Iowa 1st & goal too as I recall.

It will always be my belief that he was handicapped by his boss stealing resources and money to promote branding and marketing rather than applying it to the Team.

And I'm happy to have Harbaugh. 

But I think the question should be asked: Did Hoke lose games because of the lack of the headset?  I think that's a tough argument to even start.

Unfortunately Hoke's been on the down side of the staffs of Oregon and UTenn with no time to do anything but maximize the 1 season at hand, which makes him seem like damaged goods.  Hopefully that's not the total stamp on his career.  Personally I think if there was interest for him to come back and coach DL when Mattison retires I'd be quite happy.  I think he would do a great job.

Remember how he didn't ever wear a jacket but you could just tell that he was dying inside because he was so damn cold but it got made into this big thing so he couldn't take it back and look like a sissy so he just got frostbite instead of concentrating on being a coach and stuff?

Good times.

The tackles were better than what we have now.

 

 

left tackle: Mark Ortmann

left guard: Tim McAvoy

center: David Molk

right guard: David Mosman

right tackle: Stephen Schilling

Making these guys play in a spread offense was a complete disaster.

The only question I had was this - "When did it occur to him that this was actually a good way to communicate with your staff on the field and in the booth after all?" That is to say, when between the end of the 2014 season and now did this revelation happen?

It was a perfect storm of having a greedy, money-grubbing AD and a pawn who would "walk from San Diego" to take the job and say yes to everything Brandon ordered.  Brady never would have been in serious consideration if it wasn't for the worst AD in Michigan's history who needed a Yes Man.

Hard pass from me all the way around.

The one thing I’ll say for Brady’s teams when he was here: they never had an issue getting up for the OSU game.

Even in the last two years of Hoke’s regime, years where this team had zero business even being on the same field as OSU, much less beating them, they showed up and put themselves in position to win. They didn’t finish the job of course, but Hoke must’ve had some great pregame speeches before those games rolled around.

I'm thankful everyday that Jim Harbaugh is our coach, and that the Brady Hoke days are long gone. Having said that I wish him well. We'll always have the 2011 sugar bowl season.. and he did bring us Greg Mattison, and Peppers and several other great defensive players that helped us have a good season last year.
