FYI the yahoo blog Prep Rally just did a write-up on Ferns giving the touchdown to his teammate from last weekend. Nothing new, but it's pretty cool to see the story make the frontpage of Yahoo
Michael Ferns makes the frontpage of Yahoo
Great story. Reminds me of David Molk's touchdown when his mother was diagnosed with cancer.
Still, the plan was almost sabotaged by the referees, who were completely stunned by the fact that Ferns hadn't actually scored. As reported by USA Today, two referees actually signaled that Ferns had scored a touchdown before one of his teammates came rushing in to argue that his team had not actually scored, a surreal twist on the usual officiating protestations put forth by high school players and coaches.

I love the story and Ferns seems like a great kid, I just hate Yahoo with a passion. They are pathetic in everything other than fantasy football leagues (albeit their analysis is god awful), and they seem to have some good investigative sports reporters. Yahoo needs to keep their filthy hands off of this great story! /s (?)
I'm going to say this only once: Ferns is a class act.
Got 2 singles in section 37 that im trying to sell. Anyone intrested??
ps...ticket spreadsheet isnt working correctly for me.
If for real - yes. Let me know how to contact you.
Do you have an email?
Ferns will fit in perfectly with the Michigan family. Speaking of family, did anyone read what Denzel Ward had to say about his convo with Hoke that was posted on Tremendous?
For those that haven't seen it.
"I talked with Coach Hoke too. He told me the team is a true family and that from the first day of my commitment Michigan will be loyal to you from that day forward".
That is the Michigan Difference!
Don't have enough points to make a topic
Co host of common man and torq in columbus tweeted he wished Desmond Howard would die so he could watch gameday again, and is now suspended. Kirk Herbstreit complained and got him suspended. This guy is a total homer, and it is shocking it took this long for him to get suspended. After all this is just football, what a classless asshole.

...it mentioned that Ferns declined to comment. I think that says alot too.
Nice to see the national blogs picking up on this. A great football moment.
