CANTON, Ohio - University of Michigan Football Coach Brady Hoke doesn't mind the 365-day a year nature of his team's rivalry with Ohio State. And though Hoke insists he's not caught up in minor details or concerned with what Ohio State might do off the football field, he apparently does ask for accuracy. Asked Monday after a speaking engagement in Canton what he thought about new Ohio State coach Urban Meyer posting a sign in Ohio State's football facility that listed the chosen majors of Ohio State's players vs. those at Michigan, Hoke said he believed the sign had been taken down. "You just have to have your facts right," he said. An Ohio State spokesman confirmed that the sign hasn't been posted since shortly after it was photographed in February in a meeting room at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Hoke said he didn't make any phone calls or ask that it be taken down, but he was clearly aware of its contents. The highlighted portion of the sign started by listing that 24 of Michigan football players major in general studies. At the bottom, more highlights were on those who major in engineering (2), biology (1) and business (0). "I've got enough to do, I really do," Hoke said. "I'm worried about Michigan, period. I'm worried about our guys taking finals today and how they're doing. I will call as soon as I'm out of here and check on them. "None of that other stuff (concerns me). Really." A native of the Dayton, Ohio area, Hoke said he chose the Michigan side of the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry before he was a teenager. He's referred to Ohio State as "Ohio" since taking the job last January, drawing the ire of many Buckeye fans. The majors sign and a still-posted schedule sign in Ohio State's team meeting room refer to Michigan as "The Team Up North." During his 45-minutes on the podium at the Hall of Fame Luncheon Club, Hoke called the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry "the greatest in sport" and said the beginning of every team meeting he oversees includes a group call of "beat Ohio."
