here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
As I sit at my computer and relentlessly check the board for new topics and all things Michigan, I thought I would start a thread with a positive tone rather than the dong-punching rubbish of the past week.
There is plenty of speculation as to whether Denard will become the starter this season. What is not in question is the fact that he is one of the fastest players on the team, and that he has the potential to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.
I wonder how many times we will hear a call similar to this after Denard shows his defense shredding skills:
"If you look real close there's a jock strap on the field and it belongs to (insert defender's name here)." -Matt Millen
Starter or not, having a full year under his belt will make DRob a better all around player, and an exciting piece of the puzzle in 2010. Go Blue.
So Mark May, in his infinite wisdom, just posted this on twitter...
Michigan QB Denard Robinson will be the starter in the opener vs. UCONN
It was also re-tweeted by Forde...
Thought the MGoBlogosphere should be informed.
Let's here the predictions. Assuming that Denard starts. Will he rush for over or under 100 yds against UConn? Also, Over/Under 1,000 yds on the season? I personally think he'll rush for over 100 vs. UConn but just shy of 1,000 for the year. What say you?
Ok, so I finally got this image embedding thing to work. This is a very rough draft of what could be a pretty cool tour "poster" or back of a t-shirt. So, if anyone would like to clean it up and add their own touches feel free to do so. Sept. 4th can't get here soon enough.
Don't think I can embed it, sorry.
But as always with practice highlights, there's the caveat - is it a great play by the offense, or a bad one by the defense?
Does anybody know the freezing point of Dilithium? 19 degrees Kelvin?
EDIT: Night games, extra time for fans to get loopy as well.
Of note, I spoke to a Florida fan today who refused to believe that ABC would show the Michigan game at the same time Florida plays LSU. He insisted the Michigan game must be a day or game, or if played at night, have a kickoff of 9 or 10, because of course the world shuts down for the SEC and no one would dare play let alone broadcast football at the same time SEC teams play. SEC fans are unaware of anything outside the conference. Such is life in SEC land.
