Looks like we might find out if he is faster than Woolfolk.
Denard Robinson Joins UM Track Team
Pay attention and watch closely: Denard is running circles around you right now.
I wish i could see them run.
But I keep having to blink.
Couldn't Superman vibrate so fast, that his molecules were displaced long enough to allow him to move through solid objects?
I think that would be an appropriate barometer for Denard Dilithium Speed.
Wasn't that the Flash?
Superman could just punch his way through.
There was an episode where the Flash did that. Though it wasn't intentional, he had some chemical poured on him or something.
according to an episode of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, yes he could. wow, i cant believe i actually remember/watched that. i neg myself.
Mmmm Teri Hatcher in her prime.
and they are spectacular.....
I like her early work in Tango and Cash.
it is suppose to be on the BTN on tape delay.
its not on my directv BTN guide. saturday you said?
Next Saturday, January 23rd
Michigan has a great track tradition, as does Ohio State. There will be tons of athletes and some likely future Olympians competing. If you haven't been to an indoor track meet, this should be good to watch.
oh, and yeah, it would be nice to see just how fast over 60 m Robinson is.
Biggest question on every journalist's mind: Will he lace up his shoes????
He already has velcro shoes.
Just a guess on my part but I think he will not be using his football cleats during the track season.
Shredder, can we pretty please get an awesome MS Paint rendition of the race to document it in all its glory?
You'd need one of those cameras they use to film hummingbirds in slo-mo, or to capture the movement of a bullet as it cuts a playing card in half...
I can barely contain myself. (see my picture)
Now we get to see just how fast he is
Actually, because it is on tape delay, if you aren't there, you will never be able to see it. Denard runs so fast that tape of him actually records backwards in time, and we will end up with a backwards playing video that begins the split second he starts to move for his first step.
Can Denard slow up by a step or two, in order to avoid ripping the space-time continuum?
Does this mean that he is not going to play spring football?
He's a scholarship football player. Therefore, when there is football to be played, he will be playing it.
I went to high school with a freshman on the women's track team, and when I was on the bus headed down to the State Street lot after class today (I live in Detroit and commute in), I saw her on the bus.
While she was telling me how her first year of track was going, I asked if she hung out with the football players much, and she said she's talked to a lot of them but mostly Denard because he ran track with her, to which I replied "Denard runs track?".
To add even more craziness to the story, just as she finished telling me that the bus pulled over at a stop and Denard got on.
but coincidence does not equal irony.
I'm an engineer, so I can't care if its really irony or not, just that coincidences are the derivative of irony (or is it the integral?). lol
But seriously, I think that counts, doesn't it? Its not the story itself, its the fact that it was news.
On the bus, I concluded that this was something I simply didn't know off-hand. By coming home and then here, I learned that it was recent news that I therefor wouldn't and shouldn't have known before hand. There's got to be irony in there somewhere if I remember my high school English terms correctly...
Irony = the opposite of what was expected; a fatal cure is a classic example. Sarcasm is also ironic.
I am also an engineer, for the record, but I never met any athletes in my time at U of M. I did read the E3W articles making fun of Michael Phelps... good times.
That's what I thought. Not exactly a complete opposite, but close enough that one of my roommates majoring in English (Even if it is at Wayne State) said its weak but counts. =p
I also never met, much less saw, any athletes before this semester. Now that I take a bus that goes past the athletic facilities at key times of the day I see them all the time. In fact, it was just the other day when I saw Nick Sheridan that it actually hit me that I really DO go to school with said athletes that I watch from the stands and my couch (And after seeing Denard also seriously thought about the fact I'm actually OLDER than some of the current ones now).
Unless it rains on your wedding day.
just thinking that I have 10,000 spoons but all I need is a Knife.
More importantly, what am I going to do with all of these spoons?
If Denard runs track but no one sees him does he really run track?
He goes to plaid
As a former physics ug, I'm concerned that we can never really know either how fast DRob is or his location with absolute accuracy. Assuming that we find out how fast he is, we then can't find out where he is...
Nevermind, this could be great since defenses won't know where he is assuming he's actually there and not with Schrodinger's cat.
We should use a "Heisenberg compensator" like they do on Star Trek.
GUYS THE "DENARD IS SO FAST" MEME IS SO PLAYED OUT WTF
did you know he doesn't tie his shoes?
Sarcasm detection fail detected.
to run plays other than the ISQD?
I mean that guy with a read option can be very dangerous.
Or he could actually take a few weeks from football to do something he's good at that he enjoys since he's only a kid and not a professional athlete. Then, when he returns to football maybe he'll be refreshed, relaxed, and faster after being coached-up by the track people.
