Warning to other QB's: Do not end up like Anthony Morelli. Stay out of the way of #68. Big Will isn't far behind. Watch out in the years to come, as we will be coming for teams 1st, 2nd, and 3rd string QB's.
More proof that Mike Martin is related to the Incredible Hulk:
There is nothing else to say
Look at his calves. He looks like he wants to eat your first born.
it looks like he's already feasted on first-born, second-born, third-born, all the cattle in the barn, and all the corn in the field.
Is that sad,or awesome?? I feel like a girly man now
I dare you to find someone on this board he couldn't kill with his bare hands. Unless Mike Martin himself is on this board, I don't think it's possible.
i bet he could kill himself with his bare hands....or is he too strong for himself?
Yeah, that's what I mean. I don't know if he could, but he's the only one that would have a chance at it.
What happens when the unstoppable force meets uh, the unstoppable force?
By their powers combined, Captain Planet Eater!
One negative point machine of a post wasn't enough?
Why does this deserve negative points?
We got Lou Dobbs on here worried that the implication is Jesus is Mexican?
I mean, it's not that funny, but I gave it a +1 for fairness' sake.
EDIT: Nevermind, it seems that Jesus has been making multiple accounts and negging those who would make flippant comments re: Him and burritos. He did it to me, too.
His calves are so big that I can't even come up with an appropriate quip.
Those aren't calves, they're pure-bred bulls.
Just as much of the MGoBoard has cankles, MM has thilves.
Those babies are too big even for Johny Drama...
the man whose muscles exploded.
I despise you for making me read that and look at those pictures
That is terrifying.
P.S. - Looks like Big Will is taking a page from Denard's Book (shoes).
Martin's were tied until he flexed out of them. Yes, he can in fact flex his foot.
if I didn't know better I'd say he was scaled to look bigger. Fisheye lense? He *is* 4 yards closer, but still. Jesus.
also, #62? Who is that (RVB?) and why are his biceps the size of full hams?
I"m going to guess that #62 is Dominique Ware, a 5'7" defensive tackle. RVB is number #53, and decidedly way too tall, and pale, to be #62.
This looks like a "All in For Detroit" picture to me.
Well, that was the caption on the original site I took it from, but considering Mike Martin went to Novi CC and Demens went to Birmingham Country Day, I'm not sure that'd be that accurate.
Jon Conover went to CC.
I wonder why they left him out...
this was posted on rivals the other day by someone who knows the photographer. here's the link to his site:
He has a cool photo of the Pahokee guys too.
I was wondering what non-slot receiver could possibly make Cissoko look tall.
I'll feel a little better knowing that if our 5'7" DT gets in the game he's bringing those pipes with him.
Let's elaborate, RVB is a tall white guy, not a midget black guy. There is no way we should be confusing them.
I just haven't actually paid close enough attn to the line to know when he's on the field. I watch the secondary...
I would definitely say there is a little bit of fish eye lens going on here. Lets face it, he looks bigger than Big Will and look significantly taller than any other 6'2" guy in the picture.
That being said....
OMG -he doesn't need to be- Shirtless
we'd scare people into a National Championship. Too bad it doesn't work that way.
a couple hundred words, at least.
Darned recession is driving down the value of everything, even pictures.
Also, as a side note, whenever I see Mike Martin, this quote from one, Brian Cook, always pops into my head:
...Martin's usually listed at 280 and is obviously way more advanced in the tao of weightroom than 99% of high schoolers: there's a chance he's just not going to get any bigger...
Good to see that was wrong.
According to Countdown to Kickoff, Martin gained 27 pounds this off season.
For the non-math majors, this picture is also proof that (14+15+33) < 68.
He even LOOKS a little like Lou Ferrigno. That's crazy.
Best I can come up with is that they all attended school in Detroit or in the Detroit area.
Maybe in the Detroit area. Martin went to Detroit Catholic Central, but it's in Novi. The scary thing is he could be a freshman this year. He was a year ahead in school.
He does kind of look like a Monchichi, but on a lot of steroids.
He's got small arms.
I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is sarcasm. If this is part of a negbang, though, I'll be on my way.
I believe R_Mahorn is currently in the process of getting negbanged until he passes out and can't feel his abacus anymore.
That photo looks like the end of the world
A post-apocalyptic abyss brought about by the Michigan defensive line.
Im pretty sure Chuck Norris just pooped his pants
There has to be a MGoShirt idea involving Mike Martin comparisons to Chuck Norris as a subtitle to this picture:
'When Mike Martin does a pushup, he isn't lifting himself up, he's pushing the Earth down'
...should be labeled NSFW. This is practically porn.
Good lord he's terrifying.
Martell Webb could have been in this. Unreal picture!
Martin pushed a door into me one time on accident. It wasn't like he just opened it either. He threw the door open. We were both about to be late to class. He was hauling ass and just bolted throught the door. I almost fell over.
For those too lazy to look it up (or don't have the roster memorized).
From left to right
68 - Mike Martin
25 - Kenny Demens
23 - Floyd Simmons
14 - Teric Jones
15 - Thomas Gordon
73 - Will Campbell
55 - Brandon Graham
62 - Dominique Ware
33 - Boubacar Cissoko
84 - Cameron Gordon
I was going to say that the common thread was that they are all from the East side of the State of Michigan and on Defense. But I know Cameron Gordon is listed as a WR. So yeah, I don't know. Good picture nonetheless.
the detroit area
Does anyone else get the urge to yell "MARTIN SMASH" after seeing this picture?
Maybe I will have to yell that after every sack he gets this season...
image and phrase on a sign and taking it to a game. Mark my words.
I'm doing that with "Death Roh" when Craig becomes our pass rush guy.
Maybe when they're both regularly on the field together, we can start calling our defensive line the crab people.
Cant wait to see Mike Martin go up against Justine.
this needs to be put on a t-shirt
This picture now graces the center of my Windows desktop.
Great post! Martin is a beast.
What is neat to see is how little body fat there is on this group of young men as a whole (Will Campbell excepted, but apparently he is shedding his as well). Not only are they big...but they look athletic as well...great picture.
Big Will is still only 18. Imagine him in a few years.
Somebody find out what will soothe Mike Martin's anger before he destroys us all!
"Don't make him angry...you won't like him when he's angry!"
Wouldn't it be great to see Martin just smash the shit out of Boren?
Another year with Barwis and MM and WC on the line together is a whole lot of human being. That will be pretty exciting.
MM craps so big he has to stand up just to get off of it.
That's what will happen when you eat steel and shit Buicks. LUXURY Buicks.
...of Lou Ferrigno and Grace Jones.
Are we certain he's not related to Barwis?
Good god his arms are like as big as my legs.
One Mike Martin leg should be sent to Afghanistan and the other should be sent to Iraq. Send the troops home. Problem solved.
I'm only 5'2'' but I'm sure that even if I were 6'0'' that MM could crush me with one finger.
I like it.
Both Big Will and MM are obviously physical freaks, but what about Cam Gorden. He certainly passes the eyeball test.
Hey guys, first post, silent lurker for a while. But yeah, the common theme is Detroit, Catholic Central's official name is Novi DETROIT Catholic Central. Inkster is considered Detroit and Kenny Demmen's school is Detroit Country Day School. Thought I'd clarify.
As for MM's size, i played for U of D Jesuit (luckily on defense) and he would do terrible things to our O-Line...horrific things.
Big Will is no slouch either, I went to Cass's Prom and HC and danced right next to him...I'll just say, very light on his feet.
...I'll just say, very light on his feet.
Yeah, but can he crip walk?
Mike is huge and so is Will. Nice find.
That's what she said.
This photo was labeled on Rivals as something like "The Detroiters" or "The Detroit Crew" or something like that.
I don't think the photo organizers really cared that Detroit Country Day isn't actually in Detroit. And Inkster (i.e. Cameron Gordon) isn't in Detroit proper, either.
Also, I would fuck Mike Martin's shit up. Fuck this "spawn of Lou Ferrigno" shit - I AM Lou Ferrigno.
Fear the Ferrigno.
62 Dominique Ware DT 5-7 248 Jr./So. Detroit, Mich. (Inkster)
five seven and 248? well I don't feel so bad about my height and weight anymore, lol
although his body fat % just might be a wee bit lower than mine :)
If you're 5'8" and 247, that's not much better.
Go on a diet.
Martin is so big...Michigan will get called for too many men on the field whenever he plays.
But it settles the question about GERG's defensive scheme. It will be a four man front. Mike Martin and two defensive ends.
Martin is so big that when he sits around the house, he sits around the house.
Martin is so big than his mom has to iron his pants in the driveway.
Martin is so big that his calves are bigger than most people's calves.
Martin is so big that he has to shop in the husky section at JC Penney.
No more Mountain Dew for you.
I will smash your face into a car windshield, and then take your mother out for a nice seafood dinner and never call her again.
Dorothy Mantooth is a saint!
In your fuxpert opinion, would this joke be acceptable?
Martin is so big his calves have their own congressman.
I don't get it.
I was afraid of that.
It was not really a joke as much as it was a true statement.
There is nothing funny about politics.
...then you are not a Republican.
(I bet ol' Johnny McCain felt that one. I bet it made a Jurassic Park ripple in his Ensure.)
I was just thinking to myself that Mike looks like two guys molded together front to back.
Mike Martin got the bomb ass biceps!
I'm still pissed The Legend of David Terrell didn't live on into his NFL career. I hope he gets a job on TV.
He doesn't speak well enough, sadly.
Do you see the look on MM's face? Can you imagine that looking at you across the line of scrimmage? You better hope that your team colors include brown pants because that is one scary dude.
Anyone else think that based on this picture, Cameron Gordon is considerably taller than the 6'2" he's listed at on Rivals? Advantage = us. Granted, I'd also have to guess that Brandon Graham is maybe only 6'1" at the tallest, but still.
I realize the most of us thought of Cam Gordon only in passing this offseason, but I think that he might be one of this season's best kept secrets.
I know everyone is talking about MM, but I swear Big Will's eyes look like he is thinking about eating one of MM's ham-hock arms. I can't wait until his fitness and technique make him an every-down lineman right there with Double M. That combo will utterly destroy O lines for several years, and if it can happen this year, open the door for BG to feast from the outside.
At UofM before, but DAMN. The best part about that pic though, mostly freshmen and sophomores. Barwis is definitely the man, and I cant wait for the future.
damn these guys are huge
he has some wrestling background & could tap out some dudes with his bicep-teratops
