Senior Day Haiku Comment Count

A silly MGoBlog tradition.

haiku Note: a number of seniors with eligibility remaining are omitted; I included the Coner because he's probably not going to get a fifth year and he must have a haiku.

Brandon Graham

Sisyphus in pads
thunders through endless legions 
third and long again

 Stevie Brown

aw, hell, you're all right
sorry about that dong joke
after the Horror

Greg Mathews

Worst luck at QB
in Michigan history
I guess that's life, man

Mark Ortmann

The faint annoyance
was the right way to handle
Freep jihad PC

David Moosman

too bad you never
played next to Rocko:
"Moos and squirrel"

Kevin Grady

We will always have
That Indiana game in
Two thousand and four

Brandon Minor

In this instance, I must defer:

My everything hurts.

Carlos Brown

If you didn't fall
when winter breathes on your foot 
you'd be a ninja

Laterryal Savoy

No offense, good sir
But I think I'd rather have
had DeSean Jackson

Jason Olesnavage

spring's blossoms were grim
but fall had competency
extra point: dang, man

Zoltan Mesko

the high arc of time
will record you as greatest
human(?) ever born

Ricky Reyes

Punt block, Feagin thing
Plus Cone nailed you on two seams
A career in sum 

Ohene Opong-Owusu

I did this before:
Ohene Opong-Owu-
su. Your name is long.

David Cone(?)

lyrical master
bomb-dropping fourth string QB
the coner, always

I'm trying to decide, from a meme point of view, whether I'll miss Zoltan (SEOS) or Coner more.

...We still hear of Tacopants from time to time! Tell me I'll always have Zoltan! TELL ME!

I happened to sit next to Laterryal on a flight from St. Louis to Detroit last summer when he was on his way up to play in August. He was a great kid and I've always rooted especially for him since then. He was sooo close to making the game winning catch against ND this year!

This is like complaining about that one misplaced freckle on Marisa Miller's left forearm, but isn't the Moosman one off?

too bad you never (5)
played next to Rocko: (5)
"Moos and squirrel" (4)

I have respect and appreciation for anyone who plays the game, regardless of how much they achieve.

I'll have even more if you kick some Ohio ass on Saturday.

Go Blue!

Brandon Graham

Thank you for staying
It sucks the defense was bad
But it's not your fault

Brandon Minor

May you get a chance
To show the NFL that
You aren't made of glass

It's sad that this all the seniors in this class and a testament to the cupboard not being full (especially on defense. Just wish GERG would have been here with last year's group. I am really going to miss Graham. I would probably say the same this about Minor had he been healthy all season. Both have been fun to watch in spite of the recent meltdown.
I only wish Minor were completely healthy for the OSU game; just seems unfair how his Jr and Sr years have gone. Hoepfully the NFL will be good for him.

I'm praying for an earley Christmas present - a win over OSU sure would take a lot of pain away. Everyone seems to think OSU will roll, but this is the same team that lost to Purdue a month ago. They have a rookie kicker and issues on offense. I can only hope the crowd becomes the 12th man on Saturday and helps guide the Blue to an upset.

Having all those guys from 1969 around before kickoff has got to help as well.
