Hoke still upset about loss to rival

BY foxsports • October 17, 2011

Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he hasn't gotten over the loss to Michigan State over the weekend.

Part of it is because the 18th-ranked Wolverines have a bye this week, meaning Hoke doesn't have anything to focus on. Another reason: the rival Spartans just won their fourth straight game in the suddenly tilted series.

Hoke plans to put his players through a pair of hard-hitting practices and a few weight-lifting workouts during the bye week. Michigan's next game is Oct. 29 at Purdue.

The Wolverines' weaknesses were exposed in the 28-14 loss Saturday at Michigan State. The Spartans dared Denard Robinson to throw and the quarterback completed his lowest percentage of passes as a starter. Hoke says Robinson was knocked out of the game with what he said was a bruised back.
