Hoke's press conf...

Posted: 2/7/2013 1:46 AM

Hoke's press conf... 


Check out Hoke's recruiting press conference.  It's a wreck and he sounds like a bumbling idiot.  At the 10:00 and 15:45 minute marks he can't even remember the recruits names he's talking about and has to refer to his notes to get names:
 
Uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...Uhh...uh h...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh   
...Uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...Uhh.. .uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...uhh...

I LOVE Urban's press conference and it's posted in another thread.  I'm afraid Urban could not provide any assistance to Hoke.  Can't teach an old dog new tricks...

He's not polished like Urban, Brian Kelly and Nick Saban are. He's clearly not an elite coach.

Re: Hoke's press conf... 


I would not have entertained this but he is just a gosh-awful speaker. Who in their right mind would want to play for this guy? I can see why he does not do the play calling for the team.

"It's 4th and goal on the OSU 2 yard line-- 30 sec's on the clock, coach Hoke has sent in the play--oh oh wait it appears as though he is calling and audible--- Uhh--uhh --let's uhh no let's uhh try uhh no maybe a uhh uhh uhh hold it uhh huh hahaha-- Time has expired and the game is over."

I counted no less than 40 uhh's in the first 2 min. Horrible!!! Speech 101---take it on line.

They went from Gomer Pyle in Rich Rod, to Flounder Hoke, who has the speaking ability of Junior Samples on Hee Haw.  Put some coverall on Flounder, and you co do a remake.

His career record obviously spoke for itself.

Also, everyone else turned them down.

He's a FOOTBALL coach, not a PR guy, or a spokesman. I know head coaches of major programs are the face of their respective programs, but first and foremost, they're football coaches. He just so happens to suck at that, too biggrin

Yes, but most big Div 1 coaches will speak at coaching conferences for HS coaches, coaching clinics, etc.  Being a good public speaker is important for a big time coach in the long run.  If you were a HS coach and you heard Meyer and Hoke both speak at a conference, which one do you think the coach is going to feel more comfortable pushing his players to.

I see that angle, and with the non-stop media these days, I know it's an important attribute for a head coach to have. They're still football coaches, though. I'm sure he's better one on one with people/recruits, but if it all comes down to public speaking ability, there are many more that are more qualified to coach, than most head coaches.

Take a look at how he spoke at his presser.....and you'll immediately know he doesn't carry himselflike the 3 guys I mentioned. Hoke also doesn't respect his body enough to take care of it....he's a veritable slob....and it shows in other parts of his life, too. He's sloppy and undisciplined. But most importantly, take a look at those three coachs' records prior to their current jobs. They all won national championships at their old schools. Hoke's not even won a conference championship-----which by very definition makes him a mediocre coach.

Wow… The obsession on this board with Michigan is a little embarrassing. Does anyone here have a job or do you just read about Michigan all day? Kinda sad really…..

RE: Hoke's press conf... 


Go to S&M and read the comments from all the moronic fans who have convinced themselves scUM football is still relevant and that they have a coach who is one of the elite's. Tried to remind them they were 2 hail mary's against NW and MSU from being a 6 win team but they were too busy talking about how Urban is going to leave OSU in 2 years. Their fan base is either:

A) - Blindly loyal to a point of avoiding reality. (Which i can appreciate)
B) - Some of the stupidest football minds in college football fan bases. (Which I expect)

Surprise....UM fans support their guy
Surprise....OSU fans can't stand him

He didn't make a fool of himself up there, but I do prefer a more polished guy as in Tressel or Meyer. I think it's a bit overblown from what I watched.
