"It marks Gibbons' first Big Ten Player of the Week honor. He becomes the first Wolverines' specialist to earn the weekly award since punter Zoltan Mesko..."

Congratulations to Brendan on a well-deserved honor this week, and indeed, how awesome to be the first Wolverine to win this since the Space Emperor himself.

Is it just me or does Gibbons look a lot like Bob Seger circa 1978 (think "Stranger In Town" album cover). If I had more skills I'd post side by side comparison pictures.

Well deserved.

I have a hard time judging what's going on with field goal attempts that move from one side of the goal posts to the other.  Did his game winner just sneak inside the right upright, or was it more comfortably in than that?

Brendan Gibbons may be the greatest redemption story going in college football.  By the end of 2010, I felt it was just plain cruel to keep putting him out there to do something everyone knew he couldn't do.  Now, we send him out to win Sugar Bowls and rivalry games with B10 title implications and he wins awards.  Has any player made a bigger turnaround from total scrub to hero?  None that I know of.
