Love the new banner and slogan.
Countdown to Kickoff - Day 5: The Captains
Was not expecting the banner change. I think I dig it. What's the slogan in reference to? (Though not even knowing, I like it, regardless)
where I was asking a2_electricboogaloo about music, I figured you would guess the right answer. It seems to be from a song called Lisztomania by Phoenix. I haven't heard it but I'll have to give it a listen soon.
Edit: Also, thanks for the Theophilus London reccomendation. Very, very good stuff.
Hah..Yea I just responded in the thread above. I somehow felt I should know it but it just didn't click! Phoenix is/are some good stuff! 1901 is their other "big hit" and a favorite of mine. Look at their past albums (Alphabetical and United), good stuff on them as well.
Glad I could recruit another Theophilus fan.
well since the other replies in this thread dont have to do with the actual thread... can i just say.. I am so extremely happy that Rich Rod was able to recruit Blake Countess... the kid is such a stud
OP is on-topic, so (sleeping) mods probably won't notice if all responses are off-topic.
If he was going to recruit us into depth crises in regards to OL, DL, WR, and LB, then I'm damn glad he was able to recruit a potentially great DB.
for these two guys. Both guys are completely deserving of this honor.
At some point it's going to sink in that this is Denard's last season. I know it's coming, but I'm just ignoring it the best I can.
do you realize that the Nov. 17 Iowa game will be the LAST time we see Denard take a knee in the endzone at Michigan Stadium?
Sure we'll see him in the winged helmet for 3 games after that but I swear if I was in the student section I'd handcuff him to that railing after the Iowa win.
Message to fans in student section for Iowa game: DO NOT HANDCUFF DENARD TO THE RAIL! You will get arrested and we will need him for the rest of the season.
Thanks for posting...The 1st is almost upon us, hail yeah...
The "gritty" walk-on who plays his way onto the field as a four year starter, and the gifted quarterback who grew up in challenging, disadvantaged circumstances, and has proven again and again how humble he is despite his stardom, and how much of a teammate and sportsman he is. These are young men we can be proud of.
nice catch for JeremyJackson in the middle of that clip.
At 2:05? I also like the way Kovacs runs into him without even raising his arms. Not a great form tackle, but he's a bowling ball out there for sure.
Both guys will make tremendous captians. I'm sure Lewan and Campbell will join them out there from time to time. But Kovacs was right, it's not about these two guys...we need leaders all over the field and at every level on this team.
Vincent Smith has to lead to RBs, Roundtree the WRs, Lewan the OL, Moore the TEs and so on and so forth.
