Just thought people would enjoy knowing that upon my Orientation to Michigan and talking with Taylor Lewan, I was told that all of Barwis' teeth are fake from fights. That should only add to his legend.

sorry. couldn't help myself
When Bruce Banner gets mad, he turns into the hulk. When the hulk gets angry, he turns into Mike Barwis.
That is a fun fact. Fun to know, but not to have happen.
Although I am surprised because the Barwis is indestructible, and his teeth could never by knocked out even if he were hit by another (which he never has been, nor will be).
Therefore, this is a myth.
Barwis' all-natural teeth are stronger than diamonds.
In fact, diamonds were discovered when Barwis decided to chew on a piece of coal one day.
The Barwis knocked his own teeth out as an example of his own power.
1.) Barwis' opponents somehow knocked his teeth out, forcing Barwis to force his dentist into making falsies. Or:
2.) Barwis, resplendent in his perfect, untouched pearly whites, collected such a collection of his opponents' teeth that he chose to swap the lot of them, maybe in homage to that guy in Platoon who had a necklace of VC ears.
...he pulled them all out (using a paperclip) on a dare from Chuck Norris.
That is a lie ... either you made it up or somebody is telling you made up stories ... Barwis did not lose his teeth in fights ... he lost them from chewing on the bones of his opponent AFTER the fight
Mike Barwis can kill two stones with one bird.
birds flock to Barwis' stones...
You're on a roll tonight.
Fights with fucking bears with brass knuckles.
bears don't like to be disturbed while copulating
Barwis doesn't need teeth. He could tear into a 3 dollar steak with only his gums.
he just grew those bitches back!
it will get old quick.
Get over it.
His avatar is a screen grab from Lucio Fulci's classic "Zombi 2." One of the greatest in its genre.
In case you are unconvinced, observe this infamous scene:
Seriously that shark vs zombie scene is probably the most bad ass thing any of us will ever see in our lifetimes. Outside of Michigan Football of course.
I'm "one year older" than you.
is that those fights occurred at The Kumite.
Nok Su Cao! Nok Su Cao!
He was allowed into the competition only after performing the Dim Mak.
There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Barwis has allowed to live.
The truth of the matter is that during his time in West Virginia Barwis knocked out his own teeth as a show of solidarity with the locals.
The legend is that if you could get your hands on one of these teeth you could plant it and grow Fedor Emelianenko.
Mike Barwis has fake teeth.
His former opponents, though, have fake jaws.
Also, Mike Barwis teeth are prized among the people of Papua New Guinea for their medicinal properties.
but every time I see your handle, I think of Adam Foote and die a little inside.
millions of years of wind and water erosion, and it's not even 6,000 years old. Barwis was in the Arizona desert training for an upcoming bout, and after drinking a few hundred gallons of Gatorade he took a gigantic piss that lasted four hours. The force of his micturation did all the work.
micturate upon your desert?
This Thread is funny as hell.
Strange how he doesn't get much of a mention from UM fans. Maybe it's because his teams never managed to beat OSU.
Yeah I know, I'm doing my part
There is no Tate Forcier - Just Barwis with a mask.
Not really related, but two years ago while I was at Michigans campus day I met Couch Beilein's son Andy and his wife Kathleen. Andy was attending the campus day but wasn't sure if he was going to enroll there yet or not. (eventually did) Both were really nice and my Dad and I talked to them about Beleins move to UofM.
that Barwis tried to pick a fight with his father when he was 3 years old. They both "wrastled" for hours, throwing each other through walls, and trashing their home in the process. His dad finally called it off when Barwis Jr ripped his arm off with his pinky toe. As punishment for leaving his father crippled, he was sent to southwestern China. There he trained under a master of kung-fu, Li Hyabusa. During this intensive training of the martial arts, Barwis was told that if he could bite a steel apple he would receive the highest honor. After years of training and biting, he was hella-tougher, and he had hella-fewer teeth. The remaining ones were strong enough to finally take a real bite from the Apple of Steelshanks. Victorious, Barwis decided his training was complete, and he should go back home. When he returned to the United States he was finally trained ninja who was badly in need of some dental work. To pay for it, he had to start training people at WVU, and whupping ass at UFC. And this brings him to today!
P.S. - I know this is true, because my brother in law was sitting at a dinner table the other night with some other coaches (exchanging f-bombs) and they were telling his amazing story.
You finally got me at "brother-in-law". +1000.
Some kind of abstraction, but there is no real him.
Only an entity-- something illusory.
And though he can hide his cold gaze...
and you can shake his hand and feel flesh gripping yours...
and maybe you can even sense your life styles are probably comparable,
He simply is not there.
...of the fact that there is no I in “team” but there are two I’s in “Mike Barwis”?
There used to be an I in "team," but Barwis beat the word up and took the I for himself.
