"Troy says Hoke told Grant that he needs to keep on working hard to beat Michigan and that the two made some small talk on the phone." "It's getting hard to keep my dislike for them, because they've been so classy and unbelievable to us."

Brady Hoke supports 12-year old Grant Reed's quest to beat Michigan, his brain tumor. (H/T: 11Warriors)

It is only fitting that on Gerald Ford's birthday (centennial edition) that there are just 48 days left until Michigan football.

Michigan not worried about playing two straight games at Spartan Stadium.

They’ve got a field, it’s 100 yards long, there are goalposts at either end -- we’re going to be just fine, not a big deal...We can win there as easily as we can win at home.

Per Kyle Meinke's twitter. Congrats to those walk-ons for being rewarded for all their hard work

Brady Hoke dropped the "State" from Ohio and drove the Buckeyes to distraction to the point where the program—not just the fans—celebrated the return of "that school up north" like Terrelle Pryor welcoming an auto dealer into his tattoo-artist-sponsored apartment. Hoke dropped "This is Michigan" in his introductory press conference and tacked on the "fergodsakes" that made it immortal. He called last year's outfit Team 132, and now this year's outfit is team 133 and the ridiculous recruiting class that will enroll next year is shooting #team134 hashtags back and forth across twitter. Hoke didn't seem to mean anything by any of it. He just talked, and though he tried to press-conference it things slipped out sideways. We imbibed them. That's marketing. The rest is just repetition.

Brian Cook proves once again why he is the best guy writing about Michigan football. Period. This is phenomenal, and quite possibly the best summation of Hoke's first year and a half I have read. Read this. Now.

Q: Do you willingly associate with any Ohio State fans, and if so, do you objectively consider them reprehensible human beings? If not, do you subjectively consider them reprehensible human beings? A: I don't associate with any of them, mostly because I don't spend a whole lot of time hanging out in truck stops and Golden Corrals across the Midwest. The closest I get to Ohio State fans is swerving out of the way when they cut me off on the freeway while driving their decades old Chevy Astros with OSU plates and bumper stickers. Seeing as you can tell a lot about a person's character by his driving habits, I would say that "reprehensible human beings" about sums it up. I hate those guys.

RZ: Like a rugby punt with the arm! HN: Onside kick with the hand. RZ: Inbounds pass with the sternum. HN: The infield fly rule with your penis. RZ: EXACTLY. Like, "I'm pantsless, and you're out." You like my quarterbacks with their eyes in the sun and runnin' with their pants down just like I do, Houston.

Q: Toussaint and Clark? Hoke: "They’re still not practicing with the team." Are they at practice? "They’re not at our practice, no." Are the in this building? "I don’t know. Are they?" I’m asking you. You would know better than I would. "I would." Any better idea on a timetable? "Nope."
