It kinda seems like Hoke's been getting in trouble for his media demeanor in the media.
After a series of miscues late in the second quarter, fans began to show vocal signs of disapproval, as boos rained down on the team as they headed into the locker room for halftime. Hoke just hoped for one thing out of it.
"Hopefully those boos were at the coaches and me," Hoke said. "Not the players."
Earlier this month, Hoke caught some flack for noting that true fans will support the players, and those that aren't true fans will not. Both statements echo in the same vein.
Not heartwarming, but better?
EDIT: There is also this:
Hoke also discussed Michigan's injury situation again, and the main focus is naturally on junior wide receiver Devin Funchess, whose status is up in the air.
"We'll make a game-time decision on those guys," he said, referring to not only Funchess, but junior safety Jarrod Wilson and senior cornerback Raymon Taylor as well.
I thought we didn't talk about injuries.... Admittedly, not a functionally different response from not talking about them all together, but a very different way of relating the same information.
