Michigan head coach Brady Hoke was joined by Ohio State head honcho Urban Meyer at the Sound Mind, Sound Body high school football camp in Southfield, MI Wednesday afternoon. The two were recruiting for their respective schools. It wasn’t just a normal camp. In fact, it surprised Meyer that this type of camp is allowed.
College coaching staffs were allowed onto the playing field to to help coach the kids. The primary coaches that attended the Adidas-sponsored camp were Hoke and Meyer, Eastern Michigan’s Ron English, Alabama-Birmingham’s Garrick McGee and Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi.
Despite the ugly rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State, Hoke and Meyer were able to put aside their differences to devour some barbecued ribs Wednesday. This wasn’t some post-camp snack that was provided. It was captured by ESPN.com Michigan beat writer Mike Rothstein.
The other news to come out of the camp is that Hoke referred to the Buckeyes as “Ohio State”, which broke a vow he made to only call them “Ohio”. Opponents reading this should pick up on the Michigan coach’s weakness. Give him a couple slabs of ribs and he’ll show you his cards. Easy game.
