Larry Foote had nothing but good things to say...
Foote on WDFN: Rodriguez building dynasty, Barwis a freak
by Jonathan Oosting | MLive.comFriday July 25, 2008, 6:08 PM
Former University of Michigan linebacker Larry Foote spent hisoffseason working out in Ann Arbor with the new Rich Rodriguez regime,and he liked what he saw.
"It's gonna be a different team this year," he said Friday toWDFN-AM's Stoney and Wojo on their annual Radiothon. "They still need alittle more talent, but they're going to shock a lot of people thisyear just by the mental and physical conditioning they're doing."
"I'm telling you, it's going to be a dynasty created."
Foote, who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers inthe NFL, was joined in Ann Arbor by a number of former U-M players —including Braylon Edwards, James Hall and, surprisingly, TyroneWheatley — and spent considerable time working under new strength andconditioning coach Mike Barwis.
"He's a freak," Foote said of Barwis, who doggedly challenged him tobeat his running times. "He's a little nutso. He used to do theultimate fighting, so the guys got some screws loose."
Listen to the full interview to hear Foote talk about his dreamabout the Detroit Lions' record (it wasn't a nightmare), his thoughtson the Steelers' upcoming season and the Michigan State "gremlins" thatkeep messing with his phone:
Make sure you click the link and listen to the audio. THE END'S THE BEST PART!! Caw Caw!!
Lance Smith is suspended from Wisconsin causing less depth at RB. Wisconsin's gameplan was probably pounding the ball with P.J. Hill and then hitting the home-run with Lance Smith. Unfortunately, Wisconsin has 2 other backs that could step up and play in place for Smith.
So after a night at the bar, I had some divine intervention in the form of a dream, to make the film "Camp Barwis" a reality. As usually happens after spending some time at Good Time Charley's, I had a very vivid dream, that this time, was half trailer, half dream.
The dream started with a bunch of fat linemen leaning against each other and rolling around on the ground, and a plump middle aged fellow with a moustache yelling at them (I'm thinking it was supposed to be Gittleson, but I don't know what he looks like). Suddenly, there was a growly voice that said, "stop, this is my team" and the music from the Batman trailer cued, as the words "Camp Barwis" popped up in block maize lettering. Then Barwis, (played by Billy Bob Thorton. Yes, I realize this makes no sense, and I guess my brain generally sucks at casting badass cagefighting warriors) runs over and punches Gittleson and he literally explodes.
The next time we see the players, rather than fat slobs they are the nerdiest nerds that ever lived, and they are running from Barwis (who isn't Thorton anymore, but is actually the real guy). At this point it got a bit chaotic as the nerd players ran around, but eventually the left the field and were somehow in ancient Rome (again, I don't get it).
Finally, Barwis chases them into the colliseum and once again, they have transformed and are now ridiculously jacked. Just as they are about to face off, I wake up because I have to poop.
I want this movie to actually happen.
I generally avoid thinking about "the Horror", as well as all things related thereto, but this was a fun story to come across in this morning's Freep (which forwards to this Fredericksburg.com story):
Kerry "Brown, a rookie offensive lineman, attended Appalachian State ... This week, Brown is among a slew of [Redskin] roster hopefuls who might as well be called hair because there is a good chance they will be cut."
I walked over and introduced myself, but when I extended my hand, I noticed his were both holding helmets.
"This one's Jon Jansen's," Brown said, referring to the Redskins' veteran tackle who is a--gulp--Michigan alum. "He came over to me and said, 'Hey, rook. Carry my helmet. Where's Appalachian State now?'"
After the morning practice, Jansen strolled into the training facility with both hands free.
"It's great to have Kerry here," Jansen said. "I don't like carrying my helmet."
