The team awards were handed out tonight and I know you're all probably shocked but Denard won the Bo Schembechler Most Valuable Player of the Year Award for the second year in a row.

Other winners:

Dr. Arthur D. Robinson Scholarship Award (Leading Senior Scholar): Will Heininger

Hugh R. Rader Memorial Award (Top Offensive Lineman): David Molk

Roger Zakoff Award (Best LB): Kenny Demens

 Robert P. Ufer Bequest (Senior who has demonstrated the most enthusiasm and love for Michigan): Split between Ryan Van Bergen and Kevin Koger

Richard Katcher Award (Best DL): Mike Martin

 

I just want to give another shout out to the Senior class who dealt with so much and fought through it all. This team wouldn't be where it is today if it wasn't for those guys. They're true Michigan Men.

St. Rich Rod's Day Speech from Henry V

St. Rich Rod's Day Speech from Henry V

Submitted by captainbatman on September 6th, 2009 at 10:52 AM
    If we are mark'd to lose, we are enow
    To do our college loss; and if to win,
    The fewer fans, the greater share of glory.
    Rod's will! I pray thee, wish not one fan more.
    By Bo, I am not covetous for rank,
    Nor care I who doth rise upon our loss;
    It yearns me not if men my colors wear;
    Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
    But if it be a sin to covet glory,
    I am the most offending soul alive.
    No, faith, brothers, wish not one more fan.
    Rod's peace! I would not lose so great an honour
    As one fan more methinks would share from me
    For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
    Rather proclaim it, Wolverines, through my host,
    That he which hath no stomach to this season,
    Let him depart; his transfer shall be made,
    And fare to Lansing put into his purse;
    We would not lose in that fan's company
    That fears his fellowship to lose with us.
    This day is call'd the feast of Rich Rod.
    He that survives this seasons, and comes home whole,
    Will stand taller when this day is nam'd,
    And rouse him at the name of Rich Rod.
    He that shall live this year, and see old age,
    Will yearly on the season opener toast his neighbours,
    And say 'To-morrow is Opening Day.'
    Then will he strip his spirit and show his scars,
    And say 'These wounds I earned on Saturdays.'
    Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
    But he'll remember, with advantages,
    What Wolverines did that day. Then shall their names,
    Familiar in our mouth as household words-
    Tate the King, Hemingway and Matthews,
    Koger and Shoelace, Graham and Roh-
    Be in their righteous moves freshly rememb'red.
    This story shall the good fan teach his son;
    And opening day shall ne'er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remembered-
    We few, we happy few, we Wolverine fans;
    For he to-day that cheers this team with me
    Shall be my brother; be he formerly a state fan,
    This day shall gentle his condition;
    And Wolverines everywhere who missed the game
    Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
    And hold their fanhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That cheered with us upon Rich Rods day.

what's harder to catch: Tacopants or Bullet Pass?

what's harder to catch: Tacopants or Bullet Pass?

Submitted by StephenRKass on September 6th, 2009 at 1:20 AM

So I see that Tacopants is eligible for Michigan again in 2009! Forcier had a pass to him near the end of the game. The difference this year is that Koger is tall enough and good enough to make the circus catch that Tacopants never seemed to get his mitts on.

I have a question for receiver types. What is harder to catch: a circus pass (too high) like the one Forcier put up for Koger, or a bullet at short range, like the pass from DR to Kelvin Grady? They both seem difficult in their own unique way. Regardless, awesome that Koger & Grady both caught the respective difficult catch.
