further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Also: water wet.
One Denard Xavier Robinson is not only a quarterback for the University of Michigan football team, but a scary-fast dude who runs track for the Wolverines as well. Today (seriously, less than an hour ago), Denard raced in the 60 meter dash against Ohio State WITH HIS SHOES UNTIED OMG. I'll let the video speak for itself:
He's the be-dreadlocked dude in the 4th lane, winning the race in a time of 6.81 seconds.
The meet was packed, and I'm sure much of the excitement was about Denard's performance this afternoon. Nearly every Michigan football coach and about half the team was in attendance, along with some football recruits, in addition to members of various other Michigan teams (shout out to women's basketball, who stood right near me). Paul also got some pics:
Sorry if some of them are blurry, he's just too fast for any shutter speed.
You think someone who was around for haloscan, signed up for MGoBlog 2.0 the day it launched, pretended to be a Michigan fan for years as a secret ploy to launch his troll attack on January 16, 2010?
I think Emo has officially gotten this board so riled up that anyone who makes any sort of joke, even if it's not a great one, is automatically a troll.
We wanna neg someone!!!
Nor does the start date of MGoBlog 2.0. This sort of humorlessness is just another sign of the changes here in the past year.
Michigan Arrogance has been here for a while and made good comments. I have no idea what he/she was doing above, but come on now people.
that I have only 1 neg to give my university. to that troll on this topic. I expect future juvenile posting by MA will also get neg bombed.
Isn't there a difference between braids and dreadlocks? I thought "dreadlocks" only referred to the lumpy, smelly things that form naturally after many months of never washing your hair. I'm pretty sure the guys on the team just have regular braids.
So, maybe I should make a post of this, but who is faster in their respective domains, Carl Hagelin or Denard?
I want to see Darren Helm vs. Denard Robinson.
Quote from above: He's the be-dreadlocked dude in the 4th lane, winning the race in a time of 6.81 seconds.
5.75? Dude, that's nothing.
If we can get this kid the ball in stride in space anywhere on the field he is a legitimate homerun threat every play. He could be every bit a Harvin if we can just unleash him from the shackles of having to back-up at qb. I am sure that Robinson is aware that his future as a professional lies on the perimeter, not as a qb. He could certainly be one of the most electifying players we have had in a while.
RR is thinking .."Yes speed speed speed .. MUST have speed"
I think the gun shot scared the poop outta the camera fan...he shook like a leaf
Yeah, that was me. It was more just a surprise than anything, because there was a loooong delay between "get set" and the gun.
I noticed that too. At least your honest. I'm sure you were standing directly next to the starter. Since we are grateful for the video we will all assume that is the case.
OSU: Slow in feet AND brains!
That bang you heard was not the starting gun, it was D-Rob passing Mach 1.
Could we put a Flash outfit on Shoelace for the next race?
Is that explainable?
Glitchy Internet = Re-post. Sorry.
Props for a quality Avatar.
Or is Dilithium banned by the IOC?
But civilian use of fusion power is prohibited.
His start was really really fast. Kid's got explosive speed.
I brought my boys to the kids' clinic before the meet and it was a blast. We stuck around for the events and had a good time. Ended up walking out right next to Coach Rodriguez, but I couldn't think of anything to say to him, so I just smiled and pointed him out to my boys.
I thought I had an exclusive video for once, but Tim beat me to it! Here's an alternate view from a bit further down the track and higher up.
Who knew that Denard was a fan of Mario Batali?
Oh c'mon, there's plenty of humor around these parts. Poking a hornet's nest in an obvious "hey, look at me" attempt to get a reaction is not the same thing as being truly funny.
Good god that kid is fast. We NEED to get him on the field next year and in space, not running up the middle.
punts, the coin toss, anything . . . ?
I mean, lately we have not even been winning the canned food drives against them.
