BRADY HOKE IS AN ALL-CAPS TEXTER

Glory Brady Hoke

Brady Hoke was in East Lansing today as part of a Michigan high school coaches conference. Among advocating playing football with the proper technique — has there ever been a coach that's advocated against technique? — was a great story about anti-technology guru Brady Hoke.

The original tweet by Mark Snyder was deleted because Snyder felt people were using something light-hearted to mock Brady Hoke. We here at Eleven Warriors aren't above poking Michigan Men with a stick — or beating them with a pole — but this is the internet, and this story must live on forever:

No surprise to anyone.

This is the perfect Brady Hoke anecdote. Stuck in his own hubris regarding technology, he'd rather make it seem like he's angrily screaming at family members and (presumably) recruits instead of looking for the caps lock function on his phone. 

May Brady Hoke reign over Michigan football for another 300 years and 1,500 losses.

THAT'S WHAT WE NEED MORE OF, IF YOUR GONNA SPEECH, SAYS IT LIKE YOU MEANS IT. go bucks!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

As much fun as it is to make sport of the guy, you have to admire his down to earth personality.  What you see is what you get.  That is probably a big reason why he is doing so well on the recruiting front.

Agreed. All joking aside, Brady Hoke seems like a good guy to have a beer with.

Seems like the kind of guy who'd snatch a few chicken wings while you were in the can.

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

the real question is..Will there be any beer or ribs leftover after Hokey gets done inhaling.

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.

Hoke's voice will forever make me laugh. But he does seem remarkably grounded, even considering all of the Michigan Man bullshit.

Brady Hoke reminds me of the dad from the Goldbergs.  Surprisingly funny show if you haven't watched it.

really hope they get another season.  of course, being born in 1980 i'm right in the wheel house for those who'd really enjoy it.

Wouldn't he have to turn the caps lock on every time he types a text?

brandonbauer87's picture

Can't see?  Probably a good thing considering the team he put on the field this season. 

Coqui's picture

Can't hear either.  That's why he doesn't wear a headset.

HE'S SO FOLKSY.  THANK GOD A TRUE MICHIGAN MAN HAS RE-INSTILLED "MANBALL" AND BROUGHT "FAMILY VALUES" BACK TO THE PROGRAM.

HighBallAce's picture

Yeah Lewan's "antics" certainly has brought the term "manball" to mind for me.....lol

kalabuckzoo's picture

It's b/c he's used to speaking loudly on field since he doesn't wear a headset.

this deserves mass upvotes, IMO

I can only imagine the blanket THIS IS MICHIGAN text his entire contact list gets every morning at 10:30am when Hoke rolls out of bed.

YOU KNOW, HE HAS A GOOD POINT.  TYPING IN ALL CAPS REALLY GETS THE POINT ACROSS.  THEN AGAIN, IT DOESN'T DO THIS BY DEFAULT SO HE'S NOT IGNORANT OF TECHNOLOGY.

Hoke can't help it. Everywhere he looks, he sees all caps.

Every Hoke runs walks with urgency on Dunkin'.

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Brady texts like he eats... BIG!

CommandHead's picture

Your attempt to mock the guy by using the word "hubris" incorrectly falls a bit short.  Look it up.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

What about your hubris in trying to correct an All-Powerful, All-Knowing 11W staff member?

sadly when you turn 40 you learn what Brady means by "I can't see."  LASIK did away with glasses for years (oh the joy) and now I'm that guy constantly looking for my reading glasses.

IMAGINE HOW GREASY HIS PHONE MUST BE.

OH-IO!

Why is he sitting in that pic looking like he's going to be decapitated by Al-qaeda or something.....lol

He's holding in a monster deuce.
