Borges/Hoke fat jokes... - Monday, December 09, 2013 12:55 PM

..are getting kind of old and tired. If we were winning you wouldn't hear a word about the coaches' weight. Since we're not, it doesn't make it cool. It's just a cheap shot. There are plenty of valid reasons to critique Hoke and Borges. Not looking like Brad Pitt is irrelevant.
Good luck RR! Go Hoke! Go Blue!

I retract nothing. I made 1 fat joke and I stand by it. No one seemed to have an issue with fat jokes when they were being made at Charlie Weis' expense.

Shame that it's coming from our "fans" as well.

Phil is good about keeping that kind of crap off the boards though. I trust in his decisions.

It's been going on for a LONG time. I'm not offended by a post here and there. Every day, over and over again has gotten stale.
Good luck RR! Go Hoke! Go Blue!

I wish they were just jokes.......I stand by my BWW comments and borgy getting more well rounded by next season. What isn't true and I will voluntary take my stuff down, along with a formal written apology and a promise to never ever make bulging jokes at Mr. Alluh Canneat.

BLUF, while I am not a huge fan of the jokes Hoke, Borges and Mattison could all use a diet along with a fitness plan.  I am big fitness/health guy and the stress of a coaching gig along with their lack of fitness is going to kill em all if they don't get it in check.
 
GO BLUE!

I'm more annoyed at the constant whining and crying than I am about fat jokes.

Just tired of the never ending excuses from that blob of goo.......Putting it all on the kids, he can do no wrong, of course. The guy is a load, and everybody on here knows it. Im not sugar coating my feelings towards him either. If thats considered whining, than i apologize up front.

Oh there's a lot of that too.

I want a new OC as much as the next guy. I'd feel that way if he looked like Pee Wee Herman, Vin Diesel, or Jabba The Hut. I'm not totally offended by fat jokes. BUT it's the repetition of the fat jokes that's wearing on me. I know our board let Charlie Weiss have it too. But at least it was limited to the week of the Notre Dame game or when they were in the news for whatever reason. The Borges jokes don't end and have very little to do with "Wolverine Football".
Good luck RR! Go Hoke! Go Blue!

Their weight would be a non topic if we were 10-2 so it shouldn't mean anything at 7-5.  I could not care less if they win.  There are FAR more legitimate things to complain about with this staff-fat jokes are stuff you resort to when you have nothing else.  It's old and tired at this point.

Well then, if Hoke and company are offended, I only hope this propels them to an undefeated season next year so they won't have to hear the complaints........LMAO

Well a person being morbidly obese can be a direct snapshot of a persons character. (Minus a direct medical condition).......there is a huge difference between Hoke and Borges. Hokd has an obvious low hormone prob, causing his type of excessive weight gain and laid back personality, compared to just 5 yes ago he was pretty aggressive on the sidelines. Now hes just like ahhhhhh.......borgy is just a fat blob which corolates to his personality IMO.
