I just pounded my balls flat with a wooden mallet and I am feeling much better.
JT Floyd's Ankle: Probably Not So Good
out of date
HAI GUYS I BET YOU LIKE GOOD NEWS. Troy Woolfolk's twitter:
Things just got worse for Michigan fans. Can't elaborate that's all I'm saying.
UMGoBlog's got a rumor that this is in reference to JT Floyd's ankle, supposedly in a nonfunctional state after practice today. Tom got an independently sourced email saying the same thing. Player on team saying bad news + two different sources with identical stories about what that bad news is == 99% true e-rumor.
So JT Floyd is probably done for the year. One of three freshman will start opposite James Rogers. I'm working my way through the Penn State game tape and am not sure how much this actually hurts but it's not good. Your available non-freshman cornerback on the roster is James Rogers. That is all.
UPDATE: Woolfolk is hurriedly backtracking, which may be CYA but may not. Downgrade your likelihood somewhat here. I probably wouldn't have posted this without that third bit but the two standing are melding with other stuff around the internets and this is still likely to be true.
UPDATE II: So the "out for year" bit seems unknown. Definitely out for Saturday, though.
Thanks for the laugh bro I was about to start crying
You should take a wooden mallet to your balls too, because you clearly don't need them.
Sounds better than slitting my wrists. Maybe.
How did you make it so long? That was like last year for me.
Now you have to fire up the griddle!
What do we have to do to catch a break here? Ok, maybe a bad choice of words.
In case you are wondering, that was me who loudly said "ffffffuuuuuucccccccckkkkkk" in the fishbowl.
As Brian said post-Woolfolk: YEAAAAAAAHHHHHHH GIVE ME A FUCKIN' OTTER!!
First thing I thought of when I read this post.
This was also on Woolfolk's twitter today, and made be feel a tiny bit better because I smiled:
I was eating raisin and chocked on one. After I could breathe again I went to go blow my nose and out came the raisin through my NOSE!!!!!
These next four games are big for RR, and losing one of our few decent players on D is definetely not going to help our cause. An already thing defense just got MUCH more thin with one key loss, now we have all freshamn starting and James Rogers. Get well soon JT. any predictions on how this will impact our D going forward? I do realize it is hard to beleive we can do much worse..
Well even though JT was the one kid with exp in our secondary, he is pretty bad..
Watching the last couple wks everytime the ball is thrown his way he turns the wrong way. I have never actually seen a CB turn the opposite way of the WR he is defending when a ball is thrown. It must be a bad habit he can't break. Not like it will be any different with a freshman in his place seriously..
Yep, here it comes.
Seriously, what the fuck man.
If Rich Rodriguez were swearing at God in Latin right now, I would not blame him in the least.
Smoking one puff of a cigarette and stomping on it as he leaves would also be appropriate.
+1 for the west wing reference
cruciatus in crucem
tuus in terra servus, nuntius fui; officium perfeci.
Can we find some kind of shaman witch doctor and make some sacrifices to the football gods that RichRod has somehow offended?
Let's hope one of the remaining guys gets a lot better in the next few days...I hear optimism is healthy
Polls are closed. Snakebitten projected the winner.
I was a safety in high school - the slow, unathletic, undersized, gritty type. Maybe that makes Floyd's ankle injury not as bad because I took some of the pain from AMDBHG?
On the bright side, our defense only made PSU punt twice last week, so it isn't going to get much worse.
Haven't we learned that it can always get worse?
Well, the bad part is this will make it even more difficult to get a fix on if RR should be retained (he should, imo) or further if GREG should be retained (he shouldn't).
Good luck JT. I hope you and Troy heal quickly and spend the off season lifting large weights, developing quick twitch muscles and memorizing the playbooks.
Now, if you'll excuse me, i'm off to slaughter a goat..
Dude seriously, what the hell.
That's just gross.
And isn't this supposed to be a safe for work blog? That's definitely NSFW.
so, what this really means is instead of someone almost covering someone or almost tackling, there will be a different guy so far out of place as to not even have a chance at either.
Once again, I propose the installation of the 46 Defense and ask that we send between 6 and 8 to the backfield on every god-damned play. Rogers, Avery, Talbot, Vinopal and Christian are about to meet hell. YAY!
maybe we should insert Junior and Daryl into the secondary on 3rd downs? Oh wait, that would imply a stop on 1st or 2nd down! my bad...
Raise your hand if you want to play cornerback for the Michigan Wolverines.
Teric Jones, come on down!
Troy's tweets are now confusing me. I can't tell if he is saying we are wrong, or if he is simply trying to not be the source.
Please god be the former!!!
YES THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!11111!!!ONE!!!!!!!UNO!!!11111!!!!!
Does anyone know Mr. Miyagi phone number.
My petition to get a mascot was denied
What are yall talking about JT? I am lost right now???
Wow Wow Wow we are talking about something completely different. Stop putting words in my mouth y'all are about to get me in Big trouble
"Why is Troy Woolfolk doing Tweets about injuries?"
It had nothing to do with the accuracy/truth of the story. And before Troy started backtracking and mentioning, uh, "trouble." What I was asking about was why would somebody on the team be broadcasting information about injuries?
Now, I'll be the first to admit that stuff like this, if it is as serious as is rumored/suspected (see? you can't even say, "as serious as is reported..."), will not remain secret for too long.
But if I were the coach, there would be HELL to pay for anybody on the team who was using a Twitter account to broadcast injury information. That kind of stuff doesn't come out of assistant coaches, or even Bruce Madej's office. The head coach -- and only the head coach -- does that.
I would make one of my players most seriously effing sorry for putting team information on a Twitter account. I'd make Twitter off limits to the entire team, and tell the team, "Talk to Troy about that..."
Michigan Angry Defense Hating God has been hard at work this year. He is not limited to just secondary.
Mike Martin (???)
HEY. WE'RE ACTUALLY RUNNING OUT OF MEMBERS OF THE SECONDARY, COULD YOU STOP? GERG IS NOT ACCUSTOMED TO RUNNING THE 5-6-0
Davion Rogers and Mike Jones!
Edit: Also don't forget Jared Van Slyke.
Also Mike Williams
But no head coach or defensive coordinator could make use of this kind of severe attrition.
In other news, fans of Jim Harbaugh, the "pro-style" offense, and Family Values rejoiced. "Soon that vulgar hillbilly will be out of our hair!"
It's a lousy thing to say, yes, but don't tell me that's not happening.
I don't think losing another CB would affect RR's status as the guy who built the best Michigan offense anyone here can remember. I also don't think much of the pro-Harbaugh crowd is actively rooting against Michigan.
Freep jihad? Kinda a "to save this thing I love, I'll burn it to the ground" situation, I would think.
I just realized something...
Who's the one person benefitting from this situation, besides opponents and their fans?
Wait for it...
Brian. Think of all the traffic he gets for stuff like this.
I'm not saying, I'm just sayin.
Hey you might be onto something. Notice how this came out just as the polls were closing here in MI and attention was turning to political coverage? Could be SOMEBODY'S JEALOUS......
I just threw up in my mouth.
I cant take this anymore.
