probably an earlier pic in the sequence--it looks like he is right about to stiff-arm the ND defender. I don't know which pic I like more from UM/ND games--this one, or Brady Quinn crying with a piece of sod in his facemask after getting sacked in the '06 game
Another Denard Heisman Photo Pose
I think this is the greatest Michigan football photo of the past ten years; it is one of the handful of great photos in Michigan football history. All it needs is some history, yet to be made, to go along with it.
Denard is, technically, flying in this picture. This is not a Heisman "pose"; it isn't a "pose" at all. This is what the Heisman trophy's sculptor/creator only dreamed of emulating, in real life.
One other interesting thing I see in the background, since some of you have mentioned having John U. Bacon as an adjunct instrouctor in some of your sportswriting/history of sportswriting classes... Bacon appears to be the guy crouching in the lower right of the frame. John's been on the field for both of the first two games this year. He's often, though not always, on the sidelines. I wonder if he is doing a book on Coach Rodriguez?
how does he get his legs at that angle?
Because of the aliasing that occurred when it was caught with a camera. It's like trying to record a plane propeller.
This is from the WSJ article posted yesterday and it was used in said photoshopped Heisman photos posted yesterday.
Here we go with the hype. I would love to see the team win 6-7 games before we hear anything more: http://denardheisman.com
too soon..... but still kinda awesome.
Is no one else superstitious? All of this Heisman talk after two games has me throwing salt over my shoulder and knocking on wood all day!
Don't forget to turn around 5 times and curse.
DiNardo for Heisman!
as Manti does not yet have his grubby paws all over the One Six.
I've already shopped it:
I love Jeremy Gallon in the background, just in awe.
is my desktop.
It alters between that and one of AC taking it to the house in BW.
Yay clone stamp
the Predator is trying to tackle him.
Golly geez whiz guys. I'm officially on Denard's jock after all these legendary shots. Hail Denard.
Is there a place where we can find some larger photos of this pose? All the ones that I have seen so far are really too small to look good as a desktop background for me.
The Heisman is pulling a Denard pose...
Such an amazing picture. I love the foreshadowing.
