6 Dumbest Quotes By Soon-To-Be Fired Michigan Coach Brady Hoke

The hatred comes in sheets, as Brady Hoke continues to tarnish the Michigan Wolverines football program. It's an anti-Hoke bandwagon. Even things like not wearing a headset seem to bother people. It's a headset. He doesn't wear it. It's not why he's a bad football coach. There are tons of real reasons why he's a bad football coach. One being that he allowed Shane Morris to return to the football game with a concussion.
Anyways, let's run through the dumbest things he's said during his tenure as the Michigan coach. Because honestly, he's had some gems. Here's our version of Brady Hoke says the darndest things.
1) He addresses Shane Morris playing with a concussion:
Oh Brady, you kill me. Actually though, if you were my coach, you'd kill me.
2) He addresses Michigan's Championship chances with a 2-3 record:
"I think this team can still win the championship," Hoke said. "I really do."
Jokes on jokes on jokes. Hoke put Michigan and Championship in the same sentence. What, does he think he's Rex Ryan or something?
3) Hoke addresses his athletic past:
“When I was coming out of high school if they had MMA,” Hoke said, “I might have gone that route."
Well if it had kept him from coaching Michigan, then Michigan fans would root for his MMA career. And at this point, they'd probably like to see him in a ring with Jon Jones. Ding, ding, ding.
4) Hoke addresses the recruiting edge due to Penn State and Ohio State sanctions:
“We’ve never talked about any of those things, nor will we,” Hoke said. “We have so many great things to talk about here at Michigan.”
OOOOhhhh. Do you now?
5) Hoke addresses whether he'll wear a headset:
"No, I won't," he said.
While this quote in itself isn't particularly stupid, his stubbornness is. This has been the oddest media-coach standoff -- such animosity over a headset.
Coaches have to stick to their guns about alternative methods. But at this point, Hoke should throw on a headset without batteries. He shuts the press up by pretending he's conforming, and he gets what he wants -- which is what exactly? The whole thing "overrated" or something. None of it makes sense.
6) Hoke addresses comparisons between the 2013 offense and the 2014 offense:
"Some believe last year's offense was better," Hoke said, "That's an opinion."
To which, the reporter Michael Stone said, "Well, no, it's not." The Michigan offense is indisputably worse than last year. It's Hoke's job to pretend that all is well. He's not supposed to admit it. But he's as bad a liar as he is a head coach.
