Brady Hoke chatted with the media one last time before shutting things down in preparation for Ohio State on Saturday -- oh, and he wished the media a Happy Thanksgiving, too. Here's what mattered from the presser, in convenient bullet form.

  • Freshman linebacker Brennen Beyer "probably won't play" Saturday against Ohio State. He injured his leg against Nebraska last week. Hoke was unsure of his availability for whatever bowl game the Wolverines end up playing in as well. Otherwise, Vincent Smith and Ricky Barnum are doing fine.
  • Hoke on Nebraska coach Bo Pelini's comment about defensive players faking injuries this season: "That's ridiculous. I wouldn't do that. (Jordan) Kovacs? Come on. Us?"
