This is a great article about Fitz. I wonder if a dance major would be a first-in-history type of thing. Fred Jackson says he's the next Baryshnikov.
Fitz article in Detnews
I'm in a class with beautiful women and I'm the only guy in my class.
He may also be the smartest guy on the team.
would help him be our back up QB tomorrow?
he probably is light on his toes. The only problem is he may dance around too much in the pocket.
Not that there is anything wrong with it...
I guarantee Fitz won't be the only guy in class next semester.
Very cool article. I wonder how many performance arts majors we've had on the team in recent years. Can't imagine its very many.
was probably the closest to a Fiane Arts major. He was an English major and I think that he was somewhat of an accomplished poet.
Fear the Bow tie!!!
Didn't Steve Breaston get a lot of attention for his writing as well?
Or at least an artist...
And I think Dhani Jones had a double major in poetry and photography. [You could do those things at the Res. College.]
Steve Everett IIRC, or at least they made note of his artistic talents.
What a great way to start the day. A well thought out article from a true Michigan Man and who I would also consider an insider.
Not sure how my post ended up on this thread. Either user error (6 am in Cali) or iPhone error. Sorry
The rootability factor on this team just keeps on climbing. If one of our players doesn't sell his autograph for a tat soon it'll reach unprecedented levels.
At this point I'm assuming that the article was written by George Plimpton and it came out on April 1.
Fitz = Mike Hart + speed + dance moves = Heisman
There were only two times I actually crossed paths with football players when I was at Mich: the first was in the whirlpool at the health clinic. I'd pulled something in ballet class, and there I was on one side of the pool with these extremely large young men on the other. I figured they had to be football players, and they stared at me with confusion, wondering how this strange tiny person was allowed to invade their territory.
Bet Fitz is terrific at his other sport, and knows how to put them together. Here's to seeing his best dance moves tomorrow on the field.
And in the celebration afterwards.
