Griese addressed the team at the bust - Wednesday, December 11, 2013 1:18 PM

"For us, it was ownership," Griese said. "If you guys don't hear anything else that I say here tonight, hear this: Take ownership of your team. Because, the decisions that you make on a daily basis matter. This team does not belong, as much as I love him, to Brady Hoke. It belongs to you. Your privilege to play at Michigan doesn't last very long. Take ownership of it every day.

"And play for nothing other than each other. Check your ego at the door and work. Play for the guy next to you."


Pretty good message...subtly throwing the coaches under the bus. Good stuff...

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

I agree, BHF. Are you saying SDB that coaches such as Bo and Fielding Yost don't own some of Michigan Football???

Nobody puts the BUST into the Michigan Football Bust like Brady Hoke.  Griese pretty much said you suck Brady without saying it.

I think you're 180 degrees wrong.  Quoting from the article in MLive by Nick Baumgardner, he writes, "
"And the point Griese tried to hammer home to the current group of Wolverines, who are expected to return a total of nine starters on defense and as many as eight starters on offense, is that close losses turn into wins one way.
By playing for the person standing next to you."  Possibly he was admonishing the team!!!

 
As Brian said, leave your egos at the door and play for the TEAMI don't think he was knocking Hoke at all!  I think you guys are parsing quotes to make Hoke look bad and have missed Griese's whole point..

Go Blue!

Call me an optimist, but I don't see how this is ripping Hoke in any way.

I agree with those who don't think this was a rip at Hoke.  I found it a great message that at the end of the day, it's not guy next to you that you need to worry about and play for.  Not the coaches, not the media, not the fans posting on fansites.  Especially during a time when our coaching staff, if not all at least some of them, is on the hot seat and chopping block.

I think he threw a little jab at him. Was it a "lion king" level shot, no.

Where is this "shot" Jsj? Because he said that the team dies t belong to Brady Hoke? Hoke would agree! He has NEVER made this job about him. He puts all the praise to the kids and isn't a "me" coach.

As Brian said, leave your egos at the door and play for the TEAM

If only he could've added: "leave you egos at the door and coach for the team as well".

Not sure why ego's a terrible thing in a player but lauded in a coach.

Never said shot, said jab. This is also probably related to the reason why u can't see the jab to begin with..

He doesn't need our help.  Hoke has that part covered all by himself.

I would for you to enlighten us on this "jab" Griese took at the coaching staff. Seeing as so many of us are baffled.

No, I'm really asking. Because we have gone through this thread and not a single person has explained where this supposed jab at the coaches is.

Exactly. The people claiming the jab still have no explanation to how it was a jab or what part was supposedly a jab.

Bingo. There was nothing there. When pressed, NO ONE could explain this "jab."

You guys should discuss your favorite colors.  It would be more interesting.  (of course, do it over PM.  That would be even better.)

Use the 'Block Member' option.  It's there for a reason and the only way BHF doesn't come across as annoying, smug and misguided.  Just make sure you don't ever read the board as a visitor, or you'll be quickly reminded why you blocked him in the first place.
 
You're welcome.
