Antonio Bass may be one of the original ten mgoblog memes, and one often missed by much of the newcomers. That said, I will link to anything about Antonio Bass,
our current quarterback.
His story of recovery made the Daily, you should read it.
Late that night, Carr’s phone rang.
“Coach, I just wanted to tell you,” Bass said in a slow, deliberate voice. “I’ve made my decision.
“I’m going to Michigan State.”
Bass today says he could feel Carr’s normally warm, welcoming personality, the one Carr reserved for all his players, stiffening up. His voice became cold, formal.
“Well, Antonio, I wish you luck up there,” Carr said.
Silence. Bass held in a chuckle as long as he could before blurting out, “Nah, coach, I’m just playing. I’m ready to be a Wolverine.”
There was a brief moment of panic, as Carr set down the receiver to collect himself. Bass thought the coach had hung up the phone and thought he had made a huge mistake.
“It was about a good minute before he said anything,” Bass says, laughing.
“Don’t ever do something like that again,” Carr said. “I will get even with you for that. When you get here, I will get even with you for that.”
Man this is a great read.
