Ricky Stanzi Hates Hippies

The money quote:

“I don’t know how other colleges are, but when you walk around here, you’ve got people . . . you’ve got guys walking around in dresses and just these hippies,” Stanzi said. “They’re doing nothing. There’s the Ped Mall area down there, right in the middle. Those people are going nowhere. Those people are the people who don’t like America.”

For the message boards.  "No politics - exception for ALL Ricky Stanzi talk."


I wish the B10 network had developed a segment where they followed Stanzi around during his career on road trips to Ann Arbor and Madison.  Opportunity missed, B10 Network!

Is that most of us are unsure whether to treat Stanzi-worship as ironic or as sincere, or whether to see hippies as (marginal) representatives of a political stance or as a sadly misguided cultural phenomenon.  My thought is that there's no real consensus here.

But yeah, I'd love to see Stanzi hang with the Hackey Sack All Starz on State street, then attend a couple of classes in the RC, then have dinner at one of the Co-ops on Washtenaw.  That shit would get real real.

Hippies play a vital role in the ecosystem though.  Where do you think the good pot comes from?

Also someone go tell Stanzi that Tressel organizes drum circles.

I mean, Stanzi's pretty funny and everything, but we do know that if he's not actually a dumbass redneck, he's playing the role of one.  Right? 

I mean, how many hippies can there possibly be in Iowa?  He's creating an imaginary nemesis here.

New reality show idea: Stanzi parachutes into the Haight armed only with a Luger and a bottle of Patchouli for barter. He has six months to start a successful field office for the GOP. If he wins he and J Leman get to do an Extreme 'Merican Makeover on a cable car. If he loses, he has to wear Birkenstocks for his NFL tryouts.

Just spitballing here, but I think I'm on to something.

also, I guess slightly off topic, but does Stanzi really have 22 TDs and 4 INTs only this year? Is he suddenly an NFL prospect? How have they managed to lose 3 games with him playing so well? I guess the demise of all running backs would have something to do with it but they've gotta be really disappointed with their season.
