But what if he could play someone else?
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney proposed to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the NCAA allow teams the option of scheduling intersquad scrimmages during the spring. Hoke said he would be in favor of that model.
"I think that would be kind of cool," he said Thursday during a news conference at Schembechler Hall. "I've thought of it before. Whether we do, like the NFL, different teams going to different places and interacting for two days, three days, off of that model.
"I think that would be kind of neat, if you could do that."
Michigan began its only three-day stretch of spring practices Thursday, which coincides with a high school coaches' clinic that is expected to draw about 500 people to campus.
The Wolverines will be in pads Thursday to mark the halfway point of the 14-practice camp. They conclude the spring with an open scrimmage April 14 at Michigan Stadium.
Michigan will not be in pads for Friday's workout, but will get after it Saturday, which has been a scrimmage day for the team.
