#Michigan has had quite the fall camp -- Mark Wahlberg, Brad Keselowski and today, Tom Brady. TMZ should just post up at Schembechler.— Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings) August 22, 2013
So God gave the #Michigan football team a speech this morning. That might just work...— Maize n Brew (@MaizenBrew) August 22, 2013
Brady Hoke has a good relationship with the man he simply refers to as "Tommy." Hoke has already proved to be quite the recruiter and these images across various social media platforms can only help.

Hoke has a good relationship with Brady and that certainly helps strengthen that tie with the program

Think that Brady/Gardner pic will help in recruiting? Just a little.— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) August 22, 2013
