rundown of Michigan's riser
Okay, this is kind of crazy and nutty, but I thought at least some of you might enjoy this college football riff on Les Miz.
Mod edit: Added to the title to head off some of the same comments we got in the last thread with a similar title. JGB.
Edit II: Woah, completely missed the joke in there. Sorry.

100. Funny Press Conferences
You can't go wrong with funny press conferences. The interesting thing about press conferences is that they are the only time you hear from coaches and players. We fans tend to define coaches and players by their responses in press conferences. Brady Hoke said, "This is Michigan for God's sake!" That made Michigan fans like him right away. Les Miles seems like a funny and crazy guy because that's how he responds in press conferences. We don't know these coaches personally, so we shouldn't assume this is how they are. But anyways, here are my top five press conferences that are guaranteed to make you laugh.
This one's not for content.. Just for laughs.
- John L Smith Slaps Himself
- Urban Meyer: You're a Bad Man
- Brendan Gibbons Brunette Girls
5. Have a Great Day
Les Miles has many funny press conferences, but here is what he had to say about the rumors of him coaching at his alma mater-- Michigan.
4. John L Smith after Ohio loss
Not only did John L Smith slap himself after losing to Notre Dame, but he got just a little upset at his coaching staff after this one...
3. I'm a Man; I'm 40
Although some people think this is not funny, it truly is. What is really happening is OSU coach Mike Gundy stepping up for his player-- or at least his idea of it. He calls out the reporter and says some things that you usually wouldn't hear at a press conference.
2. Steve Spurrier and Ron Morris
This is just halarious! Steve Spurrier called out Ron Morris and basically said, "I'm going to do individual interviews for everyone except Ron Morris because he sucks." He goes on and on and on. This is a classic.
1. We Need More Dogs
NOTHING BEATS THIS! This is awesome! I don't need to say anything. Just watch the video.. Meow
Hope you all got a good laugh out of this!
Check back tomorrow for some good content. It's the first rivalry. Also, Michigan Football 101 starts tomorrow. See who or what is #101.
T-Bob must feel like a kid whose dad got thrown out of a little league game for arguing with the umpire, except this was the National Championship game and Hebert kind of has a point. I thought Miles showed great restraint given the circumstances.
Read an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend (link). The age old story about how a Defense spent the summer getting to optimal weight / power / speed, and wound up loosing the former, and becoming more effective. In this case LSU in preparation for Oregon.
So we had Barwis, who seemed to be on the path of tear out the bad weight and build them up , and stories of our linemen adding weight each season. And then we had all the complaints about undersized line, compounded by a 3-3-5 front. Throw in Wisconsin's loss to TCU, and how our guys have been consuming salmon like no one's business, and ... worry beads:
1) Will we wind up too heavy?
2) Do we have to be too heavy to win the Big Ten, positioning us poorly in subsequent bowl games against speedier opponents?
According to the Baton Rouge newspaper, The Advocate, police were at Jefferson's home this afternoon looking for evidence from the LSU football player fight last week. This keeps sounding more serious by the day.
Also, a video which is purportedly from the fight has been posted on the Baton Rouge sport talk station's website. Not much of anything to decipher though:
Didn't see this posted yet so here it is.
With this incident happening so close to the season, it will almost certainly have an effect on the Tiger's game verses Oregon. Especially since it involves multiple starters, including Jordan Jefferson.
Will Miles do the right things and suspend all these kids or will he continue his reputation as a less than reputable head coach?
