ESPN Analysts Rips Brady Hoke

Mark May is a douche nozzle, we all know this, but it didn’t stop him and Lou Holtz from trashing Brady Hoke for making his Notre Dame is “chicken” comment.

ESPN’s “College Football Live” analysts took umbrage Tuesday at Brady Hoke’s little jab about Notre Dame “chickening out” of its series with Michigan.

“I think Brian Kelly ought to send Coach Hoke some cheese for his whine,” Mark May said. “… Why stir up the pot now, why write checks that you may not be able to cash? They lost to Notre Dame last year. This is perfect bulletin board material. Why would you do this?”

Lou Holtz, the former Irish coach, said Notre Dame is just doing it because it has to add those ACC games.

“They made that decision in what they thought was the best interest of the school and not in the best interest of Michigan, and that’s the way it should be,” Holtz said. “It’s not the fact that Notre Dame is afraid of Michigan, and to make that comment, I just didn’t think that was typical of Brady Hoke. He’s always done everything with so much class, and he’s going to regret having said that.”

May has made a career out of trashing Ohio State, I guess he wants another target in Michigan.

The fact is, he is right, Notre Dame did chicken out.  They didn’t do it because they fear Michigan, they just fear getting an early season loss that would hurt them in the National Championship hunt.  That is why they would rather face lesser programs like Michigan State and Purdue.

Michigan fans have to also acknowledge that Michigan’s schedule isn’t exactly the toughest non-conference slate in the nation.  They will only face one “big” opponent in the non-con as well.

The Notre Dame decision was about a more balanced schedule, not fear of Michigan.  But ND knows an annual brawl with Michigan only yields a 50/50 chance of winning, why risk it?

Calling ND chicken is funny and only adds spice to an already great history between the two teams.  It’s no worse than what Charlie Weiss said a couple years ago.

I guess he would have really gotten himself in a mess if he said Notre Dame was “fried Chicken”


Sparty Is Coming Unglued About Michigan In The Final 4!

Last night, following Michigan’s win over Florida, I noticed something happening on social media.  It’s  not unexpected, but it was unusually nasty.  Michigan State fans are coming unhinged because Michigan has made it to the Final Four.

Not only were Sparty fans pissed and coming unglued, but a so called “objective journalists” like Pat Caputo and former players like Jason Richardson even got in the act.

Say what you want about the rivalry, but this behavior is uniquely Sparty.  They hate the “insecure” insult but they perpetuate it at every turn, they cannot seem to ignore Michigan.  The MSU attitude is pathetic, I get it, but the fact that they can’t disengage with Michigan fans is weird.  Even with a solid program in Spartyville, they are still more concerned with what is happening in Ann Arbor. It is years of being treated as a step-child, I understand, but why not just take your beating and go home?  Why make is about your most hated rival?  Why give Michigan the satisfaction?

Sparty had to know this day was coming, Beliein is a winner, he has won everywhere he’s coached.  In addition, Michigan has a new, dynamic AD who sees the value in improving the basketball facilities and investing in the program.  It is no secret that Izzo made huge progress while Michigan was in the crapper, those days are over for Sparty, the program is healthy in A2 and that means Izzo will likely have to take a back seat again to Michigan.  Face it, all things being equal….Michigan win’s the state school battle every time.

As this happens, expect more and more hated from East Lansing directed at any and all who are fans of the Maize and Blue.

Have to think Michigan fans will enjoy this video of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith singing a few bars of “The Victors” at the end of a concert at Ohio State’s basketball arena — eliciting a chorus of Buckeye boos.
