There is no reason to risk anything in the Spring, which is most likely why you hear its not that serious and then see him in a boot.
Vlad Emilien--how injured is he, really?
Ahh yes thank you for correcting me. I have read other sources describe it as a walking boot whereas the OP said cast. Sorry for confusing anyone.
I thought it was all ball bearings these days...
Are you referring to Stokes?
i really hope he is...
are you serious? I'm not upset because of my name so much but you actually hope a player is hurt? Am I misreading this?
Yes, you are misreading this. It is already known that Stokes is injured, so hopefully the OP saw him and thought he saw Vlad. Unfortunately, it seems this is not the case.
Thanks for clarifying that for me. You understood what I was getting at.
We have yet to hear from our correspondent on the South Quad.
South Quad is a building, which you would be "in", not an open area, which you would be "on". Someone's been too busy watching Old School to know about the University he's supposed to be a fan of.
Our venerable South Quad Correspondent doesn't stand on the roof of said building, waiting to pounce on his stories?
You sure are being presumptuous.
To be fair, a pretty good defense and that was going to be my first suggestion before I remembered the Old School reference.
So I +1ed that one, I only neg neg-worthy posts, regardless of how neg-banging appropriate a poster is.
Seemed perfectly jocular back and forth.
When someone is constantly asking for a negbanging, the mgoblog community is usually more than happy to oblige. For the record, I didn't neg either post. I actually chuckled a little when I read the first south quad post.
The next grammar lesson should cover ending sentences with prepositions, which I am a big fan of.
Well, seeing that my post wasn't pointing out the grammatical error, but that he thought South Quad was a field and not a building, I'm not too worried. But hey, by all means, continue to be needlessly condescending.
A preposition isn't something you should end a sentence with, buddy.
Although really, a preposition should always be followed by its object. That way you won't end a phrase with a preposition either, which is another no-no.
For the record i'd love it if mgoblog assembled a student correspondent team. Of course, we could cut costs by not deploying any mgomembers on North Campus (what's the point?) and instead focus solely on the central and south campuses in addition to Skeeps. 24/7 LIVE MGOBLOG COVERAGE. what, no?
I believe 96.4 percent of Michigan Marching Band members are engineers or urban planning students, so a north campus correspondent would be all but essential.
Omameh is covered with art school chicks when leaving his Engine ME 240 classes?
I once saw Tate Forcier in the CSE Building. No joke. I did wonder what the heck he was doing up there though...
Why didn’t you ask him?
i noticed it was him but didn't really want to bother him. then he dropped his keys on the ground and was struggling to bend over to pick them up due to his cast. i offered to help, he said he was all good, i took it as he didn't really feel like talking.
Kick his keys away just as he was about to reach them?
That would have been funny.
And I liked the first one better.
You, sir, are an ass.
An "ass" is usually meant to refer to someone as "dumb."
Dumb as in believing I really think the kid should have kicked Emilien's keys.
If nothing else, goddamm Rich Rodriguez better start winning so Michigan fans can stop being whiny lil girls with no sense of humor.
Come on Rich! I'm pulling for you!
I assume that you are sexually frustrated and trying to take it out on the rest of us.
In reading your lame posts, I believe it's obvious you are only beating yourself...
I'm not the one worried about another guy's sex life or picturing him masturbating...
Might wanna get that fetish checked out, buddy.
IMO: It would be cool to know you had the support of a complete stranger who genuinely wanted you to get better.
you were obviously in a better position to gage his mood though
We do have nearly 27 other safety's now, so that is a plus, hopefully VLAD heals soon.
Unfortunately, 23 of those are incoming Freshmen who aren't on campus yet. :(
I hope this isn't a trend with him. We need all the depth we can get. Here's to a quick recovery.
FWIW, I talked to someone who is organizing a fashion show Vlad was supposed to appear in (a lot of the football players do), and her wording was that "he blew out his knee" but I didn't post it here because I'm not sure how reliable that is or what that even means, but this sighting seems to at least confirm that things are a little more serious than Rivals seems to be indicating.
Football is going to ruin his runway swagger!
If a guy can't turn on a dime during his walk, his modeling career is finished!
Now if THAT'S not enough reason to keep your sons from playing football, I don't know what is.
I can't believe I'm actually going to +1 The King Of Belching Sphincters for that comment.
It feels dirty, and wrong . . . and not in that sort-of-good way I usually like.
Is duly noted and appreciated. I'm going to write about it in my Journal tonight before bedtime.
But there are some Bobby Brady's patroling this blog and they're going to put you on report for this.
He's still a piece of shit
Might seem a bit over the top on a clarification, but how long/big was the cast?
I've heard cast some places and brace elsewhere.
Not questioning, but it might help us understand. Thanks.
you would have stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night you would know everything that is necessary.
he could play a doctor on TV.
I could have sworn I saw Vlad in the Union today with no boot or obvious sign of injury.
i saw him in east hall with a brace on his knee. i almost didn't think it was him because i didn't think he was injured but I guess it was
for Vlad to reopen his question site
Vlad I think could be a great player in the secondary
There was a post here that said that it was Stokes who was in a boot. FWIW, GBMW had up a report of the 1st team defense during Spring practice that listed Vlad as the 1st team Deep Safety. So either this is a report given before the injury or there is a case of mistaken identity. I would have thought, though, that at least one sports media gremlin would have asked..."Talk about injuries" (I use this even though there is no question mark because this seems to be the most popular 2 words uttered by Communications majors turned sports "journalists")
I couldnt find it on GBMW. the only sort of depth chart they had was a projected spring offense chart that was out of date
this is a story regarding observations from spring practice.
everything i have read said vlad tweaked his other knee (not the one he had hurt in high school) and that stokes was a lower part of his leg. i dont know about you but whenever i have seen people who tweaked a knee i havent seen them in a cast but more of a brace. it was probably stokes
What is that? A blue spruce?
mike martin? is that yooooouuuuuu?
Spawn of Boren!
Inaccurate, but OK.
my knee is fine thanks
I just want Musberger to get on the Impaler meme. That won't happen if he's hurt.
It would also be nice for him to be healthy...
Chenglis confirmed on Twitter it is a knee sprain.
JVS has one too. Stokes ankle, LaLota elbow.
