Brady Hoke Calls Jerry Thornton And Notre Dame Chicken Shit For Being Afraid To Play Them


ESPN – Michigan coach Brady Hoke took issue Monday with the way Notre Dame pulled out of its annual football rivalry game with the Wolverines. Hoke told a crowd at the West Michigan Sports Commission luncheon in Grand Rapids that the Irish were “chickening out” of their series with the Wolverines. “We have unbelievable rivalry games at Michigan,” Hoke said. “The Notre Dame, that rivalry, which they’re chickening out of … they’re still going to play Michigan State, they’ll play Purdue; they don’t want to play Michigan.” Notre Dame, because of stipulations in the contract between the schools, had to give notice of termination of the deal three years in advance, due before kickoff of the game between the schools that year. The Irish gave notice to Michigan on the night of Sept. 22, 2012 — just before the teams played.


And this is why Michigan will always be far superior to Notre Dame. Because a true Michigan Man knows that to be the best you have to beat the best. That’s why we schedule the Alabama’s of the world by choice. It’s not about cowering in the shadows like Notre Dame. Beating up on the Boston Colllege’s and Service Academies of the world to get a high ranking. Being too scared to play power programs. That’s how you get exposed in National Title games. By taking the path of least resistance. Sure that may be good enough for a Notre Dame fan, but not for a Michigan man. But hey whatever lets you sleep at night right?
