Mike Lantry, 1972
While the basketball team may have to wait for another week to make the cover, Michigan and MGoBlog mascot Kate Upton is on the cover of the SI Swimsuit Issue for 2013.
Congrats to Kate, and another unofficial title for Michigan athletics.

Within the last two days, there has been a facebook page created completely devoted to Michigan based memes. It had about 1500 likes in 24 hours and continues to grow rapidly. Most of them are absolutely hilarious, especially if you are/were a student of the university. http://www.facebook.com/UmichMemes
The best part about this is how it has attracted several Sparty trolls and, promptly, little brother made a page of its own. So please, if you enjoy making UM memes (and I know you all do) come on over to the page and post your own awesome meme and even join in on some good ole Spartanfreude.
Seeing as we just came off of a great performance against good ol' Ron Zook, I figured I'd pass along an "Uninformed Zook" meme bank that I came across earlier today. Many of them are pretty funny, but here's one referencing last year's Michigan game:
There's quite a few gems in there across eight pages that had me laughing. Hopefully these start popping up across the interwebs. Share your favorites.
Someone had to do it and now "cooler pooper" is officially part of the American lexicon. From Urban Dictionary:
A classless sports fan. Originating from a 2005 college football game between the the Texas Longhorns and the Ohio State Buckeyes which was overcrowded to the point that fans resorted to pooping in their coolers. Credit for the first use of the phrase "cooler pooper" goes to Brian Cook of MGoBlog.com.The setting: After a tough loss, JDUB is mad at the home team's quarterback.
JDUB: does anyone know where our quarterback lives? I want to visit him. I'm dead serious. I just want to punch him in the eye or beak his leg.
Huffy: You are putting way too much emphasis on the outcome of a sporting event.
JDUB: I got 3 lil boys all who can kick his ass and get nothing since they got clean records.
great2belucky: you know how fucking stupid you sound? that fact you have children is SCARY, you fucking cooler pooper.
First documented use - The Warden's Exit
Original documention of cooler pooper behavior - Big crowd for OSU game prompts special plans for buses, parking garages, portable toilets
(I'm not sorry, either)
I have been growing increasingly tired of the "Denard is too small to maintain his RB-like carry numbers" and the even more specifically infuriating "SAME MEME BUT WITH OMGSEC". I did some very amateurish analysis and came to the following conclusion: Ahhh Hamburgers.... he is small.
Denard checks-in at a svelte 27 lbs below the average weight of the top 2-26 rushing leaders in total yards (Denard iz noomber von) which comes out to beefcakey 215 lbs. He also punches in at beach-season-envious 11 lbs below the low-end standard deviation weightage of 199 lbs.
Now for the SEC comparison, which affords us the awesome right of bangkok bettying the SEC as they wave their collective penii around in the constant dick wagging contest they seem to push on everybody against our will (essentially non-sexual confrontational rape). Their average weight for RB's is cleared for a lighter landing at 211 lbs, which, as only the most astute will notice, is less than 215 lbs. Sadly, their low-end standard deviation comes in at 199 lbs or as a SEC fan will articulate: SAMESIES BITCHFACES (or something along those lines).
So I guess, in conclusion, Denard is small in comparison to the small sample of RB's I sampled. But, on the brighter side, he is smaller in comparison to the national leaders than he is to SEC starting RB's. How's that basically inconsequential humble pie taste SEC peeps? I'll get you the heavy f'ing whipping cream so you guys can beef up.
*Note: 3 SEC RB's factored into the top 2-26 numbers*
