Agree. Tolbert was a former assistant strength coach here under Gittleson and is excellent.

Incredibly convenient for their story not to actually print copies of the documents and instead only publish selective quotes

It didn't look like anyone has posted this yet (apologies if someone did), but here is Sherman's response on SI's MMQB:

UM generally has a long snapper on scholarship. So whether you offer a guy with the expectation he could start right away or bring him in as a walk on and then put him on scholarship after a year doesn't make that big a difference.

Apparently the doctors believe it was a reaction to certain medication he was on.

Surprising to me that you're an 07 grad. For some reason, I always assumed you were in your 40s or 50s. Not sure why.

the uniforms we wore against State were so, so terrible.

I can't say that Howard-Whitley was the low point talent-wise but they were certainly the most frustrating. Those guys would be playing a great game and then suddenly get smoked for a 40-yard TD where they'd be totally out of position. It is hard to watch guys that clearly have the talent not produce for some unknown reason.

Navarre became a regular at Rick's after the 2001 season when he took over for Henson, particularly after the not so memorable OSU game. He'd come in early, often by himself, post up at the bar and have a couple pitchers and then take off before it got crowded. Totally understandable as he took a lot of shit from fans, students, the media, etc at that time. But what I remember the most was how much and how fast he could drink beer. I heard he came from the city with the hiighest rate of bars per person in the country and I'd totally believe it the way he could put them back.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Pretty sure it was 2003.||
Pretty sure it was 2003. Jeter, Giambi, Posada and a couple other Yankees came in with Henson. It became a total circus. They were shockingly bad tippers.

Although not a flattering story for the Michigan football program, Chris Perry got knocked the f out by a bouncer at Rick's one night after he decided, unwisely, to spit in the bouncer's face after he was asked to move from where he was standing because he was blocking the entrance to the bar for the guys getting ice and beer and whatnot. It was the classic one punch, knocked totally off his feet and dropped flat on his back. He jumped back up and a bunch of people grabbed him and broke it up before anything more could happen. The look on his face was priceless.

And Rick's is literally the worst place on the planet to have an open wound.

One night while I was bartending, Dhani Jones and Ian Gold were watching a group of guys doing flaming Dr. Pepper shots and thought it was a good idea to try one. Dhani had one of the dirtiest, scraggly beards you've ever seen. Apparently it was pretty flamable too as he spilled some of the shot down his chin and his face burst into flames for a second. It went out right away but it scared the hell out of everyone around.
