As retweeted into my feed by @MGoJen, @TFos_ says:

Norfleet is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity and thier song is Atomic Dog, when it goes on their members go nuts. It's a tradition.

I thought I saw him make the Omega symbol with his hands near his head at the end, but I didn't make the connection. Notable Omegas include Vince Carter and Shaq. Very cool way for Norfleet to get himself pumped up, energize the crowd, and represent history.

Anyone who doesn't like 20 year olds getting excited must be real fun at parties.

For all of the questions along the OL this fall, things could be considerably worse.

242 YPG and 6.3 YPC.

I'll take it.

Michigan rushing attack is currently ranked in the Top 25, and incidently tied with Oregon and in good company with some other notable offenses in college football:

The game was not pretty; it was a beat down.  I do, however, see some areas for hope.

Dennis Norfleet looks to be an emerging star on kick off returns.

The team fought to the end.  

We got this loss in our first game, and it's the most talented team on our schedule.

Any other positives you can think of?

I got to thinking, we throw the term grit around a lot here, which is good.  I like my nouns to be portable just like the next man.  But what do we mean by grit?  Does it mean that you have to be a 2-3 star grinder, who is usually white?  Actually, I don't really care to define the term much.  Defining it reduces it to less than awesome. 

Instead, I thought of nominating players to join the Grit Pantheon and sit atop Mt. Schembechler and drink nectar, ambrosia, and buckeye tears. 

I can't do an all time team, since 1991 is as far back as I really remember, and I only got MGoStatus in 2009.  Here are my 2011 nominees for Grit Pantheon:

David Molk (Sugar Bowl Injury)

Van Bergen (Sugar Bowl Injury)

V. Smith (handguns, 5'6" of cut blocking cruise missle)

Odoms (injured, buried on depth chart, heart of a champion. see 2008 minnesota game)

Kovacs (you know the story)

D. Robinson (pats Gholston on the ass after Gholston tried to break his neck)

B. Mealer (you know the story)

2012 nominee:  Dennis Norfleet.  See the video from the 7on7 where he smacks concrete face first at full speed and bounces up for the next play.

Who do you nominate for grit?
