Jim Harbaugh’s ‘Summer Swarm’ tour cost over $211K

Set to make his debut as Michigan’s new head coach after the disaster Brady Hoke left behind, Jim Harbaugh – and his khaki-style tour bus – scoured the geography of seven states of the continental United States. By traversing over 10 camps over an eight-day span, the cost to Michigan is anything but subtle as the check came out to $211,948. To retrieve perspective on the amount...

Week 1: tBBC Staff Does Darts…

Welcome to the 3rd year of our internal tBBC pick measuring contest. Two years ago, Scott beat Patrick. Last year, I beat Scott. They were mano a mano duels, using our epees.  This year, it’s not mano a mano; it’s a melee. Several Staffers will guess the winning teams. Obviously, as the defending champion, I’ll be ‘choosing’, not ‘guessing’.  Any commentary, appropriate...

OSU business teacher uses UM coaches in failure lecture

Former Michigan coach Brady Hoke did not have a successful run at all with the Wolverines. The Ohio State fans know that and they love to poke fun at their rivals. One business teacher on campus is no different. According to College Spun, Ohio State business teacher Travis Helm used Hoke and current head coach Jim Harbaugh in a lesson on why managers fail. It was pretty hilarious...

According to Eleven Warriors, BUSMHR 3200 lecturer Travis Helm used both Brady Hoke and Jim Harbaugh...

CFB AM: Brady Hoke still clearly hates the Ohio State Buckeyes

Brady Hoke is no longer coaching Michigan, but he's still getting his shots in at Ohio State. If you're wondering what Hoke is up to these days, he just started co-hosting a radio show on Sirius XM College Sports Nation and therefore is now paid to give honest analysis of the college football world. That seems to be a little bit difficult for him when it comes to the Buckeyes. From...

Brady Hoke: It takes ‘5-6 years’ to build a football program

Former Michigan head coach Brady Hoke had a rather unsuccessful run with the Wolverines. During his four seasons with the team, he was 31-20 and only won one bowl game. The team went 5-7 last season, which was the first time the team had a losing record since Bump Elliot was the coach in 1967. According to College Spun, Hoke feels like he wasn’t given a fair shake at taking the...

Brady Hoke Believes It Takes Five To Six Years To Build College Football Program

Brady Hoke had four seasons with the Michigan Wolverines to try and turn the program around. He just never was able to get the job done. Even after Hoke led the Wolverines to an 11-2 season in 2011, he managed to watch his wins decrease in each of the following years until he was fired after the 2014 season. As we all know, Hoke was replaced by former Stanford and San Francisco 49ers...

Brady Hoke: It takes 5-6 years to build a program

Brady Hoke was given four years at University of Michigan, and won fewer games every season, going from an impressive 11-2 2011 campaign to a 5-7 2014. Based on an interview with SiriusXM’s “College Sports Today,” Hoke seems to imply that he deserved another year or two to right the ship. In answering a question about second year Texas coach Charlie Strong, Hoke had this to...

Former Michigan coach on Ohio State: 'I don't see a weakness'

Brady Hoke surely wishes he was coaching college football this fall instead of talking about it on the radio, but there might be one silver lining: He won't have to figure out how to beat an Ohio State team that appears to him to be flawless. The former Michigan coach delivered that opinion during his new radio show Tuesday on SiriusXM "College Sports Today." Not that the Buckeyes...

Predicting Michigan 2015: The offensive line

(Melanie Maxwell, MLive) Michigan’s passing game was severely flawed under head coach Brady Hoke, but perhaps the most concerning unit over the last few seasons was the offensive line. Michigan, recently known for talented linemen like Jake Long and Taylor Lewan, bounced back from a disastrous 2013 season with a marginally better 2014. Michigan quarterbacks were sacked 27 times...

Jim Harbaugh to call Ohio State by actual name

When Brady Hoke was the coach of the Michigan Wolverines from 2011-2014, he took the team’s “hatred” of Ohio State to a whole new level in simply calling the Buckeyes’ university “Ohio.” That is not going to be the case under new coach Jim Harbaugh, apparently. In fact, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, Harbaugh plans on calling Ohio State, well, Ohio State! Jim...
