Quick hits from Hoke's Big Ten call
November, 22, 2011
By Michael Rothstein | ESPN Insider
Michigan coach Brady Hoke just finished up his final 10-minute Big Ten teleconference media session of the season. As always, here are the important things in convenient bullet form:
- Hoke on whether or not the Big Ten should receive two BCS berths: "I think this conference always deserves whatever it can get. The competitiveness that is shown every Saturday, I don’t know why they wouldn’t."
- Hoke on facing Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller: "He obviously presents a lot of problems because being a dual-threat quarterback and how good he is with the ball in his hands."
More on Miller from Hoke, and whether or not facing guys like him the past two weeks in Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase and Nebraska's Taylor Martinez helps Michigan: "I don’t know. I wouldn’t say yes or no. We have a guy that is pretty special in his own right who we play against in spring and fall camp who makes us look pretty silly sometimes."
That guy, of course, would be Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson.
