Was just watching Gameday and in discussing our game, Desmond said the above quote. Fowler asked him to elaborate and he played it off. Maybe it means nothing, maybe something. Hmm.
Desmond says there's "gonna be a surprise" today
But it's provacative. It gets the people goin!!
Michigan Robot is finally getting to start.
Tacopants Michigan Legend ceremony?
He has discovered some arcane bylaw that allows him another year of eligibility?
Haha, I definitely laughed at that.
This. Is. Phenominal. That guy is a staple on the History Channel for anyone who doesn't know...and he bugs the crap outta me.
reddit meme du jour
he just stuck his finger in the electrical outlet.
LOL!! Ancient Aliens guy with crazy Greek name!
I'm guessing Desmond is referring to Michigan wearing their throwback helmets from the Notre Dame game.
They'd use Devin Gardner at QB?
PopEvil will be parachuting in to "In the Big House" to deliver Maize Jerseys and the band is taking the rest of the season off!
and sits in his control room, stroking a white Persian cat, in the new AD lair somewhere at the bottom of the Atlantic?
Pop Evil is going to make an appearance after the game with a new lead singer, a blogger named Brian Cook, debuting their new smash hit:
"I'm a Big House Inmate and Brady Hoke has just made me His Girlfriend"
Des thinks Minny has a chance?
Mike Hart admits that he secretly still roots for Michigan.
Could it be a package where Gardner lines up at wideout, so we can no huddle into a Gardner at QB w/ Denard bubble screens? Imagine the chaos on D if Denard was lined up elsewhere. I dreamed that our offensive genius would be able to do something long these lines last year....so here's to hoping.
probably not. I doubt we will see many new things in our offense or defense until the state game. I do agree that a formation like that would be crazy awesome!
I think he said the surprise would be that Michigan would win big, but it was hard to tell if that's what he was really trying to say.
it off. Because that wouldn't actually be a surprise.
Yeah, that thought crossed my mind too. It was difficult to tell because they were trying to move on to the next segement.
Is gonna start..
I was thinking the same thing. With the a previous post mentioning the Denard had a bandage on during practice maybe Hoke is going to sit him and let him heal up. This allows Devin valuable game time in a game we should easily win, and lets Denard get healthy for the big ten schedule.
They asked him if Michigan would have any trouble today, and he said no, it will be a surprise.
I believe he was saying it will be a surprise that Michigan won't have any trouble in a Big Ten game.
Denard will score 5 TDs None by running.
Des found out he has another year of eligibility. He's suiting up today.
Could it have something to do with Hoke turning the tide?
Not at all. I think he was referencing a recent Times article related to how well Michigan jerseys were selling in Ohio.
It's the numbers on the helmets?
Just saw the guys on BTN and they are wearing the helmets with numbers on the side. Perhaps what Desmond was referencing? I think so.
Damn to slow typing on the iPad!!!!!! Must have beat me by nano-seconds.
If the game gets close, Hoke play a few sophs.
Yeah, I am too late with that, but that is what I think he meant.
Mascot oh no....
I think we are safe with the helmet numbers, but you are scaring the shit out of me.
Add me to this list. It looks like numbers on helmets but you never know with DB in the athletic department. I can almost see the Noid running around the stadium throwing pizza at people in the near future.
Pop evil plays a halftime show with a bunch of wolverine mascots while coporate advertisements rain down from overhead blimps. everyone stands up to catch the flyers but the most surprising part of all is that no one will yell "down in front!" as everyone enjoys the festivities in the new Rotel Michigan Stadium
Is my guess as well. They will also unveil the helmet stickers program
Maybe it's going to be Denard's first ride on the Transcontinental! That's got to happen sometime this year.
Denard is going to sit and Coach Hoke will start at QB. How did you guys miss that????
Maybe its the helmet numbers.
Edit: I was only an hour late.
Could it be Denard lining up in that wing thing with Devon at QB? I really like the looks of this and think it could be awesome in a change up, "WTF, how do we defend this" type thing.
But yeah, probably the helmet numbers. IDK if i like them all the time. The wings alone are just sleak and awesome....numbers sometimes is ok but IDK about all the itme. We'll see...
the surprise is probably the helmet numbers
maybe it's this brand new team we're seeing out there?
...this is the most excited i've been about this team - based on an actual performance - that i can remember in a long, long, long time.
i know minnesota sucks...they still almost beat usc, for whatever that's worth...but man. the offense is really clicking. the running game looks awesome, really coming together. the passing game looks awesome, they're really starting to play to denard's strengths. and this new formation with denard at tailback is so.....so.....so dangerous, exciting, and full of options. and the defense is really really starting to look strong all around as well.
this staff is doing one he!! of a job improving this team.
Did anyone else see the Desmond Howard patch on Junior Hemingway's jersey?
It's been there since the night game.
