Goes to show you can never look like a fool if you are doing the right thing!

How you respond after a loss means more than what you do in victory- lots of RESPECT for that move!

This Kitchens guy was one of the 8,450 players offered by Michigan in the 2010 class. He's mentioned in a couple of Tim's old recruiting posts.

Are you fairly new to the blog? 

1.  The "OT" moniker means "off-topic" and is used to warn the reader that the thread contains material that is not specifically Michigan sports related material.

2.  Football season has officially ended so many of the threads created are going to be considered "off-topic" until the fall.

3.  I think most people would be interested in reading about this in case they missed it and, having to do with college football in general, the moderators would likely always let this kind of stuff stand absent extraordinary circumstances.

but especially the third point. Even in on topic season, this wouldn't get taken down on a normal weekday during business hours; it's a feel good story about college athletics. If that's out of bounds to post, what do we have?

Unless someone wants to start making a ton more threads on WBB, wrestling, M/W gymnastics, and M/W swimming and diving to go along with the decent amount of hockey coverage and ton of content about MBB, there's going to be room for these kinds of threads on the board. By Brian's own guidelines, this is a more on topic post than anything on the Lions, Pistons, Red Wings or Tigers.

If everyone is saying the same thing, +1 and move on.  But dammed if this kid doesn't deserve some credit.  A lot of people a lot older could learn from him.

An excellent gesture of team spirit and leadership on Kitchens' part, and he didn't even need to play in the game to make a statement. It is a shame that no one else on the Gators' roster has that much team pride, from the look of things. Props and much respect to him.

That's awesome.

I believe Michigan recruited Kitchens toward the end of that recruiting cycle...

If I am Muschamp, I'm getting that picture blown up and putting it on the locker of every other player....

Thanks for the thread! This is a very cool story! Showing love to his alma mater one more time in his career. Everyone else bolted to the locker room. Classy move by Mr Kitchens!
