Preseason haiku

Submitted by OHbornUMfan on August 15th, 2011 at 11:48 AM

As the season nears, anticipation and excitement grow to the point that some steam must be released.  While some choose to release this by posting and re-posting anything even tangentially relevant to the program and others pile on the facepalm "How can you be dumb enough to clutter the board with that!" comments, I think that perhaps an outpouring of creativity and thoughtful expression will help.


Change permeates camp.

Coaches, systems, and scoreboards.

Tradition restored?


Who will step forward?

What metrics give us most hope?

All weight change is good!


We will sacrifice

The flash of sixteen through Ds

For his post-game smile.

the air is cooling,

now, hope burns like a lantern

for Michigan, come


come, fall, come winter

come now, oh second new day,

the smell of roses


the smell of roses

clenched between teeth, lips, vic'try

that old smell, roses

Tim and Tom depart
At least '12 is almost full
Crap, all those previews

MANBALL approaches
Hope for no fullback shuffle
And Denard set lose

This is Michigan,
Desmond, Woodson, now Denard.
Leaders and the best.

Coach Fred Jackson says
"This haiku reminds me of
Shakespeare, but with skill."

Meanwhile, the Buckeyes
defecate into coolers.

scents of burning wood

cold crisp morns once again

season's upon us


yost's big stadium

brandon's big marketing plan

hoke's big everything


on robinson's legs

and wiles' foot rest our dear

hope for salvation


now last year's record

and GERG's defensive beaver

fade in the rear view

Sir Brady Hoke Points

at just about everything

we will all be touched


Too many wide right

oh no another field goal

please save us Matt Wile


Oh, ticket office

where are our student tickets

I want to know seat.


Haikus are cool

and make MGoBlog better

than all other sites

Western Michigan
Denard slashes through Broncos
Must avoid Zajac

Irish Under Lights
Inebriation rampant
Post-pregame all day

Eastern Michigan
Washtenaw County prizefight
Wake me afterward

San Diego State
Tremendous victory o'er
Brady Hoke's last stop

Little Brown Jug match
Even the oh-eight team could
Still beat the Gophers

Northwestern QB
Should be for our defense a
Persa of interest

Little Brother game
Time to make Dantonio
A tragic hero

Purdue's Danny Hope
Beaten again feels So Low;
Whimpers like a babe

Children of the Corn
Need to experience a
Gut-wrenching loss now

Illinois was an
Important rival of ours
Back when Red Grange played

Huskers in Big Ten:
Kicked fluke doesn't make a champ!
Family's civil war...

VoldeTressel gone
Our long national nightmare
