You've probably seen the gif, here's the HD Zapruder film.
Sideline wackiness videos
love the rich rod one!
Anyone know what RR's saying?
I just want to know what th story is behind the stuffed beaver. That was just too out of place not to have an interesting backstory.
everyones laughing at Rich (this time literally everyone) and GRob is shoving one of the PBJ otters in his middle linebackers face...maybe he was trying to insinuate theyre playing soft?? cuz usually will cambell handles the otters
In clip #2, Rodriguez looks like one of those cartoons where he's so mad that steam is about to come shooting out of his ears.
Wonder how many folks had similar expressions when we missed yet another field goal?
who's the guy in the yellow hat in the RR video? He's ALWAYS on TV and I have no clue what he does.
So a quick googlestalk reveals Eric Smith, offensive graduate assistant.
+1 for beating me at Google.
He's Offensive Graduate Assistant Eric Smith
I was wondering that myself. Smith gets crazy TV exposure.
Where is RR head set? Did he throw it somewhere?
fed it to his pet wolverine, Lady GERG GERG.
I don't know what's weirder, the video or the fact that Demens looks like he enjoys the stuffed animal.
At first I was thinking WTF?!? But now I'm actually feeling a bit sad for him. For a grown man, one who owns a Super Bowl ring, to resort to shaking a plush toy to fire up his troops feels a bit desperate. If he's gone to these extremes already, I can only imagine what he might cook up for next week in Columbus. Fingers crossed the D will find a way to play their best game of the year.
Maybe he's saying "You think this is extreme? Wait til you see the live wolverine I desperately try to fire you up with next week!"
I am still thinking WTF.
Actually I am now thinking, that is really embarassing.
Our D gives up a million yards and points in every game not played in a rainstorm, and this is what's embarassing?
RR finally starting to show the initial side effects of over exposure to the dilithium.
I think all of us fans have felt exactly like RR in that video.
He has been keeping under wraps. Stored it with Barwis' wolves...
Me too. I am worried someone is going to walk into my office and find me crying.
Is it possible to have him as our mascot for just this one game every year?
he should get a honorary doctorate.
For me that's reason enough to fire Gerg.
Are we sure the stuffed animal is a beaver and not a wolverine?
Looks more like a wolverine.
I was listening to the radio broadcast during the game, and I think Doug Karsch (who was right there on the sidelines) said it was a wolverine.
It's Henry the Otter of Infinite Ennui
why he has that on the sideline...or is he still refusing interviews?
Can someone please explain this?
This needs an explanation. We have zero chance of winning with stuffed animals on our sideline. WTF
It is probably what he was planning to use in case he actually had to talk to the media. OR it is the next back up cornerback if one of the starters go down.
how about scratching your nuts on live television....
That RR face was immediately after we all watched either Roundtree or Stonum push off on that TD catch in the right corner. To me this was "please no flag, please no flag, thank god no flag".
Or drop a mean deuce.
Either way, the expression made me laugh Saturday. I never saw the GERG thing until Chunkums posted it yesterday. I'm still confused by it to be honest.
If your defense is actually good, you can rub beavers on people's faces and they'll think you are eccentric. If you do it when your defense sucks they think you've lost your mind.
How can anyone be comfortable that at a renowned and storied college program like Michigan's that anyone would ALLOW the defensive co-ordinator to actually BRING a stuffed animal on the field for any fricking reason!! He will never ever get another job if this get's out to ESPN or FOX Sports. That is unless he is going to be applying at Kinder Care Nursery! Gad zooks Gerg what the F__K were you thinking! By the looks at Rich Rod's face he may have just got a glimpse of his D-cordinator rubbing his beaver in a players face on National TV! Someone needs to get this to Dave Brandon BEFORE the Ohio State game and maybe we can get a new defensive coach and get rid of Gerg. Maybe that is why we can't get good defensive players when they tell Gerg to get them some beaver on their campus visits, He takes this to their recruitment and rubs THIS in their faces!
The funniest part is I can't tell if Demens truly enjoys the beaver or was 1 more beaver tickle away from knocking Gerg the f**k out!!!
Will someone PLEASE POST THAT VIDEO ON DAVE BRANDON'S TWITTER ACCOUNT...He would be gone immediately...If not, he's tickling a lot more people in the UM Athletic Dept with the beaver than we thought!
Let's all just think of the announcer that kept ripping Michigan's D' ? CHRIS SPIELMAN! And he was right on with his comments about how bad their angles, technic's, And how they don't f--cking wrap up the ball carrier, And that STUPID FUCKING 3-5-5 lack of defense we play. And that we are recruiting 3 star players on defense instead of the "5 Star Studs" we used to get!. I wouldn't wipe my ass with anything with Ohio Sate on it, But this man is a smart defensive, tackling machine! With drive and made EVERYONE around him better, Because he WON'T stand for mediocrity! Remember Bo came from OSU too! And that didn't work out to bad for us either did it? I think he would be amazing in that position. Might as well go get Harbaugh too, And learn something from the Wisconsin game and start pounding people into submission!! Like we USED TO DO! Go Blue!
This is just... classic. We should hermetically seal posts like this in some sort of special "humorous annoying fan ramblings" thread.
If we played a 3-5-5 we would actually have a pretty solid defense I think. The tough part would be convincing the NCAA to let us play 13 defenders at once.
What's even worse is that, to me, it looks like Gerg is making the stuffed whatever-the-fuck KISS Demens on the cheek?!?
