Football Display Case
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
also, is Eminem a Michigan fan?
go blue go
I think you meant "(sp?)"
Sic is Latin for "as such." It's used when quoting someone who used an incorrect or archaic spelling of a word.
Yes you should of.
he should HAVE... and you should have as well...
No one thinks he is joking here?
"And they'll never catch him!"
Yes, thank you, I clearly was. Unless I'm getting negged for being a grammar nazi.
remember him and Lloyd became friends a few years ago.
What the Hell. -Jack Burton
Alex Rodriguez, no?
And Michael Phelps.
ARod is a fan of the University of Miami... IIRC, he donated money to build their new baseball stadium.
EDIT: I didn't neg you.
Damnit, I was thinking of Jeter. I hate baseball so much.
Derek Jeter -- a Michigan student for a semester IIRC before the Yankees called. Also a proud Kalamazoo Central Maroon Giant.
Only missed one game at the Big House since 1979.
I hadn't realized that he had ever enrolled, but you are correct, he attended for a semester before leaving for the minors: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/baseball/mlb/features/jeter/timeline/
In another article, he talks about attending every football and basketball game (when the fab 5 were sophomores) that fall; no wonder he's a huge fan!
PS: Yay Kalamazoo!
He was a friend of mine's roommate for that semester. Then Mikey got the room to himself for the rest of the year. :-)
"I love him, he's a great coach, he's a great mentor, he's a great friend. He's every single thing you want a college coach to be, and he does it flawlessly." -David Molk
I remember reading an article about how Jeter cried when CWebb called that "timeout"
I think Felicity Huffman of all people has been seen sporting Michigan gear.
...you'll never be one in anyone else's.
Sanjay Gupta from CNN fame. Oh yeah, and Alum!
Fun fact: Sanjay was an RA at Couzens. We were on the same Res Hall staff.
Because then you could count all our celebrity alums. James Earl Jones and the like. (Personal favorite? Lucy Liu).
I keep seeing pics of Leonardo DiCaprio with an M hat on. But he may just like the colors.
Ss he says, "my wrist blue and yellow like Michigan"
It's only yellow because there is no such thing as maize diamonds.
I have a Fandom Endurance III merit badge
That doesn't make him a Michigan "fan" because he knows what our colors are. He's a sports fan. Wale says he "protects Hart like Michigan's line" in song. He also raps about Ernest Wilford of the Jaguars and nobody accuses him of being a huge Jags fan (he's a DC guy). Both of these guys are huge sports fans -- you'll see them on First Take -- not Michigan fans, despite name drops in songs.
On the other hand, I saw Luke Walton and Richard Jefferson at the Michigan @ Notre Dame Football Game in Denard's Sophomore year, sitting in the Michigan section. I think they have some sort of connection. Shane Battier is married into a prominent Michigan family and I've seen him around Ann Arbor a few times. He's a Dukie obviously, but I think may be a M football fan.
of "60 Minutes" went to Michigan I believe. He's DEFINITELY a "down in front" kinda guy.
False - I sat next to him at a football game when I was in high school. A former regent had given me his tickets, and Mike Wallace was two seats away. He was totally cool.
Mike Wallace I owe you a Ensure.
And he talked shit about buckeyes during that HBO special.
is just kicking it.
are Michigan fans. They opened with Hail to the Victors when they played a concert in Columbus once. Ballsey and awesome.
Is that all the RHCP or just Anthony Kiedis? I know he's from Grand Rapids
...because of him. They vacation on Lake Michigan a lot during the summer.
I think he went to Lahser.
There's that too. The RHCP are pretty much awesome in every way.
I know AK and Flee used to hop some river down by Lowell, just east of Forest Hills. I remember seeing that on some interview, they would jump of the rail tracks.
The Flat River?
for the right price.
I remember reading an article about Rich Rodriguez and Jamie Foxx eating dinner together in Chicago. Maybe he is a fan?
It was Gibson's and OSU (Tressel) several were in the mix that night at the same spot.
I will probably get negged for this, but I think that Taylor kid from the twilight movies is a Michigan fan. He grew up on the west side. Obligatory disclaimer? Yes: my sister is 15 so that's how I came upon this info.
On a better note, Mini Me was at a spring game one time so ye must be a fan.
And maybe Hugh jackman? I only say that because of the xmen movies and have no factual basis.
Those Who Stay...
They had a Twilight kid ask "Dr. Lou" a question and it was about RR and UofM....So you may be right.
He's Taylor Lautner from Hudsonville MI - a little Dutch farmtown outside of Grand Rapids. No word on if he's a M fan but I'd assume so.
Just so you know, I'm not a Twilight fan but I live by there so that's how I know where he's from.
Maize n Brew
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
"But it is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio."
-- Lafcadio Hearn
Actually he's went to high school in Norton Shores a suburb of Muskegeon, and I only know this because my girlfriend went to high school with him. So IDK where he was born but he grew up in Muskegeon, and I've heard he was a state fan.
UM football is my heroine
He's also totally cute. And I only know, because I am also a vampire. xoxoxo
Lautner is definitely a Michigan fan and grew up in Hudsonville IIRC he moved to Cali before high school. My sister in law knows some kids that went to school with him at Jamestown Elementary. The fact that I know this makes me shudder.
I think he's been quoted in interviews. Not that I've read any of his interviews,.
I'm kind of a big deal
My bad on my first post...
Vern troyer = mini me
I tried to edit it but it was too late.
Not much on here that hasn't already been mentioned but I figured I'd throw it out anyway...
Rich Eisen fron ESPN and NFL network (went to Michigan) and I think Adam Schefter. I've seen him on Sportscenter with a UM helmet in the background on his bookshelf.
"I tried to but a pencil in the light socket but it was too wide and didn't fit so I used a paperclip."-Terrelle Pryor, Future Rhodes Scholar
Never knew this before (from Wiki):
"A graduate of the University of Michigan and Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, Schefter was an editor at the Michigan Daily."
Even more interesting:
"It was so hard to get a job. When I was in college, you couldn’t have done more than I did to get a job in journalism. I was the sports editor with Rich Eisen of The Michigan Daily — we were co-sports editors along with some other people. I was working for the Ann Arbor News covering high school games on the weekends. I was Mitch Albom’s research assistant. I was stringing for the Detroit Free Press doing news updates for them from the Michigan campus. I was sending out resumes to every single newspaper in the country and I truly could not get a single job anywhere. I always tell people that there’s a bar on the Michigan campus called Dominick’s that for every rejection letter you have, they give you a drink. I had so many rejection letters I could’ve owned the bar. I went to graduate school at Northwestern to get my masters in journalism only because I could not get a full time job. There was nobody that would hire me."
