It's been the offseason of poking and prodding Michigan so far.

Ed Warinner already had his well-publicized joke regarding the Rose Bowl and coloring books. Speaking at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Luncheon Club on Monday in Canton, Urban Meyer made sure to play to his audience and deliver a dig at Brady Hoke.

“Next week is a great opportunity for you to show your support of that team up north by calling in sick,” Meyer said, according to CantonRep.com. “I will not be here.”

The speaker on Monday is Hoke. But Meyer didn't end there. 

“The largest luncheon club in America? You’re damn right it is,” Meyer said. “Just not next week. If you’re here next week, I’m kicking your (behind).”

How long does Hoke have when he loses to OSU again this year? My guess is not long.

They should consider bringing poncho's or big trash bags to cover up. Like a vintage Gallagher show, or more appropriately, going to see Shamu.

With all the controversy surrounding scUM's program right now in regards to their punter, is there any chance that Hokie Pokie won't be around for the long haul?

Hello_Heisman's picture

I'm pretty sure that Hoke's near-term future hinges much more on the performance of his 2014 offensive line than on the Gibbons thing.  The only thing he's guilty of on Gibbons is being misleading with the public as to why he didn't accompany the team to its shitty bowl game.  That won't get him fired.  Overseeing a team with an offensive line that leads the nation in negative plays/tackles for loss again will probably get him fired.

We've got good depth at punter right now.  Will Hagerup, coming off a year's suspension for violation of team rules (quite likely a repeat-failed drug test for marijuana), is a good bet to be the Big Ten's leading punter.  He was, in his sophomore year.  Despite his infamous .gif appearance.  He'll be welcome in returning to the lineup, inasmuch as Matt Wile, our other kicker, was dividing his time with placekicking and punting last year.

I presume that your comment was a shot at the Brendan Gibbons story.  Gibbons is a PK.  In that story, Hoke is guilty of precisely one thing; and that is saying to the press that Gibbons was not returning due to "family reasons" when in fact Gibbons had (in an administrative proceeding, not a court case) been expelled.  Hoke had nothing to do with anything surrounding the original incident (he was at SDSU at the time); Hoke had no role in any investigation (police or university); Hoke is not alleged, by anybody, to have interfered with anything; and I know of no one with a brain around these parts who thinks Hoke's job is in jeopardy over the Gibbons matter.

I think Cameron Johnston might have something to say about that, mate...I mean, MMan.

Yes I think you are right.  Cameron Johnston is a dandy punter to have.  I like him.  No doubt one of the top 3 punters in the Conference, and just maybe the best.  I like Cameron Johnston's special skills as a punter (kicks OB inside the 15, and all-around ball handling) as much as his raw leg strength.

Cameron Johnston, 2013 (did not play in 2012): 49 total punts for an average of 44.0 yards.

Will Hagerup, 2012 (did not play in 2013): 32 total punts for an average of 45.09 yards.

The biggest surprise to me is that Ohio State punted 49 times.

Were there any punts at all in that game? That was total video game football.

Your punter needs to be good cause you're gonna need him badly this year.

 

thunderhawks51's picture

Wasn't a shot. I was simply uneducated on the matter and wanted to know the situation/opinions. With the violations between both the kicker and punter, it was an honest mix up.

tennbuckeye19's picture

Part of Hoke's appeal is his "Uh Well, Aw Shucks, Um, Golly Gee" personality.

It's along the same lines as the Bobby Bowden 'Dadgum" nonsense that FSU fans ate up for years.

bigbadbuck's picture

But Mr Bowden had a much larger vocabulary than Mr. Hoke. When all he says is Uh well, aw shucks, um golly gee followed by the smacking of lips and all the other wonderful sights and sounds of someone who has absolutely filled his mouth to capacity with whatever food is around it gets old real quickly.

Ooooohhh, sick burn Urban!  In all seriousness I liked the coloring book joke better.  Was funnier, more original and added a little heat to the Rivalry.  Meyer's comments at the luncheon were pretty tame.

brandonbauer87's picture

That's all true. Words carry more weight from a head coach though. This is pretty tame and not all that funny, but I bet it gets more press than Warriner's comments.

What's Hoke doing that Far East anyway? I can understand getting a gig in Toledo, but whats the deal with Canton? Do head coaches from scUM get speaking engagements all the time in the Great Buckeye state or is this new? Hell sign Meyer up for session directly outside of Cass Tech if this is the case.

Why would anyone in Ohio hire this guy to speak and if you are a true Buckeye you wouldnt support him speaking here he wanted to go north let him speak there and kids from Ohio go somewhere else please!
