Fred Jackson Facts

Submitted by Mercury Hayes on January 14th, 2011 at 12:04 PM

In Brian's post today, he discussed longtime runningbacks coach Fred Jackson and his ability to survive a nuclear winter. This fact got me thinking of other Fred Jackson facts that I would like to share with you. Of course, I am not as awesome as Fred Jackson so I don't know all the facts. Hopefully many fellow MGO-Users can inform the community about Fred Jackson facts I have overlooked.

  • Fred Jackson pioneered the forward pass
  • Fred Jackson brought the winged helmet to Michigan
  • Fred Jackson can bench press as much as Jake Long
  • Fred Jackson's sports knowledge knows no boundaries. He trained Darius Morris all summer on the finer points of dribble penetration
  • The Big Chill was Fred Jackson's idea
  • So was YouTube

So are there any other Fred Jackson facts I have missed?

When Fred Jackson was 12, his dad walked into his room, sat on his bed and said "Freddy, I think its time we talked about sex" so Freddy Jackson replied: "OK, what do you wanna know?"

The next recruit Fred Jackson gets to commit is like Chris Johnson (but faster), like Barry Sanders (but more agile), like Earl Campbell (but stronger) and like Mike Hart (with better ball security).

Is to create an MGoBlog meme that will live forever along with Tacopants.

Fred Jackson is one of a very select group of individuals qualified for an internet meme. He's like a more talented version of keyboard cat, more gruff than epic beard man, and I guarantee you if he were in Mobile Alabama he would have found the leprachaun. And the gold.

I love Freddy j more than most people, and I gotta wonder if you guys are flirting with the line between laughing with him and laughing at him. He's a positive guy and loves his players, always looking for the good in people. I'm bit saying you are going overboard, but sometimes it seems like some people are making fun of him, which is not very chill, brah.

Fred Jackson can dodge bullets like the guys in the Matrix, only faster, and allows players to let off a couple rounds at him at any moment. Hence players keeping guns out when he's around.

He was once pulled over for speeding, but he let the officer go with just a warning...
He has crossed the point of no return - on several occasions.
If at first he does not succeed, then it is impossible.
He can make orange juice, out of apples.
The circus ran away to join him...
The Loch Ness Monster thinks he is a myth.
He is allowed to talk about fight club.
He's the only one who knows what Willis is talkin about.
He can kill two stones with one bird.
He has his moments...all the time.
Santa Claus sits on HIS lap.
He jumped for joy and got it.
He was born in a log cabin he built with his own two hands.
His to-do list says, "Done."
His blood smells like cologne.

Fred Jackson knows all the words to "The Victors" because he wrote the song.

Another little known fact is that he is the one who told Paul McCartney that "Hey Dude" just didn't sound right and that he should change it.
