08:18 AM ET 09.21 | Now, what if it were Urban Meyer who said something similar? Brian Kelly and Brady Hoke have a history, and by all accounts, it's a friendly one. So when the Notre Dame coach joked earlier this week that the second-year Michigan boss was as "big as ever," Hoke naturally took the entire thing in stride. "I think I am," Hoke joked Thursday on 97.1 FM's Stoney and Bill show. "Large, husky, whatever. Chris Farley, any of those things are fine." Hoke and Kelly will square off for the fifth time in their coaching careers Saturday when Michigan visits Notre Dame (7:30 p.m., NBC). Kelly's Central Michigan squads went 3-0 against Hoke's Ball State teams, but Hoke got one back last season when the Wolverines knocked of the Fighting Irish in Michigan Stadium.

Will be a tough game for UofM to win. Their lines look weaker compared to last season and ND's looks to be improved.
