Brady Hoke's Solution to Student Football Game Attendance Problems is Free Glazed Donuts

April 24, 2013 at 12:33p    by Jason Priestas    
Brady Hoke has a plan... and it involves free glazed donuts.

Michigan has a problem with students arriving late for home games, leading to empty seats well after kickoffs. To combat this problem, the school announced general admission seating for students Tuesday. One day later, head coach Brady Hoke tried his hand at a solution.

And it involves glazed donuts:

We don't know if there is a perfect tweet, but if so, that may be it.

John Cena does.  Or did.  He should offer free boxes of Fruity Pebbles instead.

They tried that once. It went down as one of the biggest upsets in college football history.

Also if any of you are in the tacoma washington area during the puyallup fair I suspect the Krispy Kreme fried chicken sandwich from the Deep Fried Everything stand would be a hit with you all as well. deep fried chicken inside a raspberry filled donut with bacon and cheese, oh the artery clogging bliss....

Didn't one of the OSU coaches bring doughnuts to students camped out for an OSU basketball game?
Wasn't it Vrabel?

Coach Hoke: Free glazed donuts for all students himself before noon home games all daily activities.


Yeah, there's no guarantee the TSUN students will even get the donuts. Hokey Pokey's buying them right? Say he "gets lost" on the way there with them?

I'm just going to go and say if this is true, its pretty darn cool.
I really can't bring myself to hate Brady Hoke. The guy is a great fit for UM, which makes them better-which in turn gives us as fans a better game to watch each November. Now don't get me wrong, I want each UM\OSU game to end with Meyer standing over Hoke's bloodied corpse yelling "Where is your God now?" at Michigan fans, but that doesn't mean I hate Brady. I just find myself wanting that sort of treatment to happen to Michigan no more than any other school.
Dude's pretty cool in my book.

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

You're not thinking like a Hoke, Ski.

+1 solely for reminding me of this.

It all started with those donuts from Buckeye Donuts for Hoke following the 2012 game.
Edit: Stepping away from the jokes everyone is making, if anyone is looking for a good place to get some donuts or bread off campus at a fair price in Columbus check out Audino's Italian Bakery right off I-71 on 11th and Clara. Great food at a low cost. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Couldn't agree more. One of Columbus' best kept secrets. My dad is obsessed with their apple fritters, and has passed that obsession on to me.

They just opened one in Hilliard on Fishinger too.  Their donuts are pretty amazing.

When I saw the heading under Buckshots, I thought to myself, "This has to be a joke, right?"

The Brady Hoke who said that is obviously an imposter. The Hokester would never give away his donuts. I want video proof dammit!

In related news, Donut shops within a 25 mile radius of Ann Arbor are gearing up, Krispy Kreme stock is up 3 points and Domino's is unveiling its new Pizza sauce and sausage filled glazed donuts in hopes that they too will be able to cash in on this business bonanza

And that's after Brady Hoke made the following public statement earlier today:

I spoke with the administration and, unfortunately, they did not agree to support my plan to give free glazed donuts to all students before noon home games. I must apologize to local donut purveyors . . .  I promise to make it up to them.
