Michigan coach Brady Hoke feels terrible for injured Ohio State QB Braxton Miller

Michigan and Ohio State may be the bitterest of rivals on the football field, but when it comes to something like Braxton Miller’s stunning season-ending shoulder injury, all that stuff should get set aside in the name of basic human decency.

It was in this milk-of-human-kindness spirit that Michigan head coach Brady Hoke on Friday expressed his sympathy for Braxton Miller and his family over the awful misfortune that has befallen Miller:

It is now the duty of everyone on the internet to form a long line and pat Brady Hoke on the back for his classiness.

Now that Brady has performed his duties as a decent human being, and the internet has performed its duty as an acknowledger of human decency, we can get down to the truth of the matter:

Brady Hoke won’t admit it, but he’s very happy that Braxton Miller got hurt.

With Miller out and the Ohio State offense in potential disarray, Brady Hoke and his Michigan Wolverines have a much better chance to beat Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes.

That may sound harsh and cold but it’s the simple truth. Underneath everything, football coaches are cold-blooded individuals who only care about winning.

Verbal gestures are nice, but at the end of the day it’s all about that W. Braxton Miller being out helps Brady Hoke get the biggest W you can get at Michigan short of a W in the national championship game.

Trust me, Brady Hoke isn’t crying for Miller on the inside. He’s giggling like a schoolgirl.
