Football Display Case
good luck gents
You may be getting ahead of yourself, MLive dude. Drake Harris had 8 catches for 243 yards against Watts-Jackson's OLSM last fall.
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
I might be wrong here, but I'm pretty sure B.J. Raji of the Packers was the first person I've seen do that celebration.
"A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no hole is a danish"
This is true. Dr. Saturday just made mention of it.
Doesn't matter, Denard is like King DeDeDe and the Villian Posse in Elmo and Grouchland, "What ever I touch I make it mine mine mine"
I'm not the biggest NFL follower so I could certainly be the minority here, but I had never heard of the "we hungry" motion/meaning until Denard started doing it.
All respect to B.J. Raji for the creation, but I feel this can also speak to the brand power of Michigan/Denard - depending on who inspired those kids.
My immediate reaction was that those kids looked up to #16
It didn't start with Raji, either. Plenty of people have been doing this for quite a while. I have no idea where it started, but Shaun Rogers was doing it back when he played for the Lions.
I'm not sure who was the first person to do it but I know it has been going to long before this season and before Denard. Denard definitely helped it explode though due to the Ohio game.
How long did you practice that to get it right?
Its the internet.
He did not create this.
COYS and Vive Le Rouge of Detroit FC!
It took like 42 hours... I'm at college, don't ask.
did they all untie their shoelaces too?
I saw a guy with dreadlocks yesterday, he must have copied Denard
You fellas are mistaken. Denard's celebration is symbolic. When BJ Raji does it it's because he's actually hungry.
I've decided to lay off the food for a while, and go on the booze.
I'd be doing it if I was a HS football player. Heck, next time I'm in ohio and someone is giving me crap for being a UoM fan, I'm going to do that eating thing.
Photography Facebook Page. Lots of Michigan sports photos. And planes, lots of planes:
....well, not really, but's it's amusing to see a lineman do this somehow.

Last night an Oregon player did it after a TD
I've pretty much seen someone do this is every college football game now, the SMU receiver did it earlie r today, but he decided to pour some salt on his food too :)
he also stirred it up for good measure. it was probably hot and needed to cool off a little bit.
kinda funny....kids from Southern Miss. doing it too after shelacking Houston the mighty...ooops.
It is from rapper Lil' B. Denard didn't make it up, most here (myself included) probably didn't notice it until Denard started doing it.
Why is this guy downvoted? This is exactly correct. Lil B (the rapper) made up the dance/move, and it caught on. Denard DID NOT MAKE THIS UP!!! Its understandable that many mgobloggers thought he did, because almost none of you have any idea who the rapper is (which is fine, btw), but he's fairly popular among younger people, which is why you are seeing the move done by young athletes.
What song is this?
Avatar is a reference to this. Go Blue!
I wouldn't know, I don't listen to him at all. I just remember a friend showing it to me a month or two ago and telling me where it came from. It could just be a video, too, not necessarily a song.
This is where Denard and the other kids got it. It's from Wonton Soup by Lil'B and other videos of his where he does referencing this song:
In case you get confused - his lyrics are not serious - he makes fun of a lot of rap cliches. It's sort of a post-modern deconstructionist approach to rap. I thought this was dumb until I found that out. Some of it is really hilarious.
Lil B is the greatest! Bill Bellamy and Martian are so funny.
"I'm the guy who does his job. You must be the other guy."
I was trying to fix the embed when you replied and locked me out.
Here's where he does it in the song:
I'm pretty sure Lil' B got it from somewhere/someone else. He released it July 2010. I am about positive I've seen the motion before then. Either way Denard didn't make it up so you are correct in that.
Our football team gets so much PR from Denard. From shoe laces, to eating, to "Denarding", I love it all.
"He has an uncanny ability to get kids to believe in him and believe in themselves. He doesn't do it with smooth words. He's not smooth. He does it by being the same genuine person day after day." ~Jason Whitlock on Brady Hoke
I am pretty sure I just saw a LSU DL do the we hungry move after a blocked pass. Not sure if he was imitating shawn Rodgers, Ravi or Denard but I will go with Denard.

Will Gholston just made a tackle in the BT Championship game and got up and did the eating motion... now he is copying Denard too...guess trying to decapitate him was not enough.
I have seen a lot of teams recently do the eating motion.
