today's college sports links: Mitch Albom sees Michigan football coach Brady Hoke as a stickler for details, unlike Rich Rodriguez; U-M kicker commit switches to Miami and more
When Brady Hoke graduated from Ball State, his goal was to get into the secret service, he told Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press.
A college football coach instead, Hoke, the newly hired Michigan football coach, has made many things clear, feels Albom.
"He wants to be here," Albom writes. "He'll throw himself into it. He'll chew out any kid who doesn't share that passion. He'll be a stickler for details (something [Rich]Rodriguez was not). And a tight ship? Heck. When Hoke graduated from Ball State, he became an intern for the federal probation and parole department."
