Hoke to give students free donuts in 2013

There are some tweets that are hard to believe at first glance. For example, Michigan athletic media relations intern Laura Raines’ tweet Wednesday. See the tweet in this post.

Yeah, so, to get students in their seats prior to noon kickoffs, Hoke and the Wolverines are going to entice them with free donuts. Glazed ones, of course.

Is Hoke for real? When asked about it on her Twitter account, Raines tweeted: “pretty sure. he used to stop at a donut shop for a glazed donut (or two) while riding a bike to football games back in the day.”

You actually have to do that to get students to go to your home games? And did Hoke enroll in classes?

Michigan doesn’t need that kind of promo. Besides that’s an awful lot of donuts for one shop to make.

Keep the donuts away from Hoke !
