Michigan coach Brady Hoke and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer have spent enough time in similar conferences -- although never at the same time -- to have some former opponents able to compare and contrast their styles.

Some are obvious -- Hoke and Michigan prefer to run a pro style while Meyer and Ohio State will run the spread. However, both coaches have similar backgrounds -- born in Ohio, looked up to coaches at the schools they now coach.

WolverineNation caught up with two former Mid-American Conference coaches, where Meyer coached Bowling Green from 2001 to 2002 and Hoke coached Ball State from 2003 to 2008, to get their takes on the two new coaches.
