Wallpaper Wednesday - This is MICHIGAN

Q: People nationally have said that this isn't an elite job anymore. Why in your mind isn't this an elite job?

COACH HOKE: Who says that? (laughter) And I'm being serious.

Q: ESPN --

COACH HOKE: God bless them. They have a job to do and they have an opinion that they might have. But this is an elite job and will continue to be an elite job. This is Michigan for God's sakes. It's what this is all about. You know, people can say what they want to say, and people are going to have opinions; shouldn't have hired him, he doesn't know what he's doing. Doesn't mean a thing. All it means is when we get together, those 115 kids and we start our preparation and we start the things that we have to do as a football staff, as a team, then we'll decide. But it baffles me how people with make a comment like that, and I'll probably get bashed in the press from it, but they are wrong. This is Michigan.

Go Blue!

Trying not to get giddy here but it sounds like Hoke is bringing a lot of coaches with him that can deliver results?

I think one of the things that bugs me is when people say, "Oh he's just focused on winning the Big 10". Well, it seems to me that in order to win the National Championship, you have to win your Conference. The Big 10 is respectable enough that if a team goes through it undefeated, they will have a shot at the National Championship. My biggest problem with the National Championship is that so much of it is decided off the field since so much of it is still dependent upon the polls.
