Mike Lantry, 1972
You've heard the backstory by now. A young buckeye fan named his cancer "Michigan" so he could beat it.
Turns out Hoke has made a classy gesture of inviting him to the Big House this year to watch the game.
Hoke is a true class act. We are lucky to have a man like him representing Michigan.
I am still smarting from the loss today much of which stems from how we could not make MSU pay dearly for their less than sportsmanlike gameplan. In light of that, I saw this article about Jason Avant (yes, I am an Eagles fan) about his upbringing and his incredible character and resilience.
It is uplifting to see alumni like Avant making a statement with actions and few words that makes me proud to be a Wolverine. Just something to give perspective about the character of people who come through this program, win or lose.
I am currently sitting in IOE 474 and no matter how hard I try, my eyes just can't seem to stay open. It has my vote.
As a wise man once said, "If I had an hour left to live, I'd spend it in this class cause this class seems to go on for an eternity".
I haven't heard much about this kid and was really hoping that he'd turn into something special? Any news on how he is coming along and if he'll see significant playing time this year?
