With apologies to Brian Cook's weekly declarations, it is finally appropriate to utter the words "Brady Hoke gets it." Hoke's Wolverines beat Ohio State 40-34 yesterday in a game that could have easily been a 20-point blowout in either direction. [Insert section about Braxton Miller's throwing accuracy here]
