Oh Mike Hart. We all remember you so fondly. Whether it was the "Little Brother" comments that led to what some called "The Curse of Mike Hart" (Sparty had lost six straight prior to their four game win streak), the comments against our Buckeyes, or any number of other ridiculous comments that led the normally mild mannered folks at BSD to say "Hey Mike Hart... SHUT UP!" - the diminutive UM tailback has certainly been missed for his inflammatory comments leading to win streaks unpresedented in recent times by M!ch!g@n rival schools.
Will it be Shane Morris?
Okay so I say that Michigan finds some scrub kids that want to go to Ohio and we offer them! So Ohio will offer them then they will commit.
My mom won Ohio State stuff at an auction at her work today. Im glad she did bc I didnt have anything else to wipe my butt with.
Side note, not sure we want to flip that kid at this point.
Maybe Ondre Pipkins?
"We're going to see them Nov. 24 at that shoe. In the next couple years, we'll see them at the Big House, but it's just going to be like it was last year."...."I gave a little bit to what's his name, (Ohio State offensive line recruit Kyle) Dodson," Pipkins said. "He ran away from me. That's what they do. They run their mouth, and then when they meet up with the belly of the beast -- I call myself that because I am -- then they want run away. When it comes to reality, they want to run away."
I find it somewhat interesting that after our loss at the post game presser, the players recruited by Rodriguez managed to keep their comments pretty kosher, with the exception of the rare annoying "Ohio" reference. Aaaaaand I spoke too soon. Mr. Molk, if you would.
It also pisses Molk off that another Big Ten center, Ohio State’s Mike Brewster, is ranked ahead of him in many draft rankings.
“He is nowhere near me as a player,” Molk said of Brewster.
If there’s an NFL team out there wanting a center who’s strong in the weight room and cocky off the field, Molk is your man.
It's almost an embarrasment of riches at M!ch!g@n these days.
Where in the Carr years, they (and we!) were lucky to have one Mike Hart, and in the Rich Rod years, none I can think of at all, now its like the whole roster wants to claim a shot at the title. I guess it all starts at the top, with a coach who deplores the color red except well when the missus picks out a tie that day (or school picture day!) or hey it's under a windbreaker or something as it burns his skin no one wears red in my facilities OhiO AAaaaaHHhhhhhHH! Finally I realize why we lost to M!ch!g@n this year. Luke's game day attire is clearly a sign of his abject hatred for all that is Ohio State and a longing to coach at M!ch!g@n. But I digress.
I do not in any way claim to be a UM coaching expert. However, Lloyd Carr by most accounts seemed like a classy guy who would deal with knuckleheads. Even Rich Rod wasn't too bad, Practicegate aside and the sale of snake oils aside. Yes, Rich Rodriguez, that lover lover of Groban and Navy Seals, and who's players you know appreciated what the guy was doing, W/L records be damned. Hoke seems to have dropped the ball a bit on what I would assume a "Michigan Man" should be. Perhaps he is just playing up to a larger demographic of his fan base, but you would think he would police the bulletin board material a little better at least. Red meat to the fan base aside. MMmmm, meat.
Of course, I'm perfectly fine with all of this and frankly look forwards to finding out who the next Hart. Who do you think it is going to be? Morris? One of the OLineman? Pipkins? Dymonte? A player to be named later? Or are we looking at a Hart by committee approach? Will any of them make it to the top of the trash talk ranks, or simply "Pull a Hart"? I personally can't wait to find out who our next Hart will be, if for no other reason than we might get a rehash of my favorite Mike Hart quote.
"We didn't think we were going to be this bad off."
