Let’s put aside for a moment this hideous sweatshirt Brady Hoke was wearing during today’s game, or how stupid he looked clapping and trying to rally his team after this running play was blown up by Michigan State.
The embarrassment on the field is starting to be matched by the antics of Hoke and his players before and after games. The Michigan players decided to bring a stake onto the field before the game and drive it into the field at Michigan State. This is the same Michigan State team that was poised to kick their asses and already had a chip on their shoulder for all the “little brother” crap they’ve heard for years.
After a Michigan State win where Dantonio decided to score a last-second touchdown to rub it in as opposed to taking a knee, Dantonio said “Just felt I needed to put a stake in them at some point.” Wow. He basically took a shot at the arrogance of the entire Michigan program though he wouldn’t place any blame on Hoke himself, which made the whole incident even funnier.
Hoke’s line when asked about the incident: “I think I was aware that something happened, but I’m not fully aware.” Incredible.
Brady Hoke has gone from a bad coach to a complete laughing stock at this point, and having Michigan look this bad doesn’t help the Big Ten at all. This column from John Niyo sums it up pretty well.
