While I am always on the fence about being interested or taking national attention as an utmost important thing to tell my diary about at night ("Omg but then we had meatloaf for lunch again bleh") but when Michigan is not getting hit in the head by a chair thrown by Bob Knight, who apparently believes PSU and Auburn were more deserving, they're getting ESPN praise in the form of...

The man is a walking "morning talk show radio zoo OHMANELISHADUSHKUISTHEHAWTEST *cue spring boi-oi-oing*" - complete with "Breakfast of Champions - which cereal will win" bracket - but he's also been a huge d-bag to the football program. A reader was quick to point out his dark horse (darkhorse?) - fuck it, I'm referring to it as Darko from now on - has always played Clemson for the past couple years. Let's just say that's true.
