So runs into Denard on campus?

So a year ago, we knew Tate was kinda small, and hung in the South U part of the world.

This year, Denard is Elvis.

 

Anyone have any Denard sightings to share?  Is it true he cut the dreads?   Got him in a class?

He checked me out once while I was walking through the Diag. It was during rush so I was wearing one of those god-awful mandatory Greek Life shirts. Never have I resented a shirt so much.

Even if you were going opposite directions, it would still be impossible to realize you passed Denard. Walking toward him as he comes toward you is like fast-forwarding him. Unthinkable things would happen if Denard were fast-forwarded.

I talked to Denard at the Domino's pizza on Main Street the weekend before last.  I was wearing a Michigan football shirt, so he asked me if I was going to any games this year.  I told him all of them, and Penn State too.  So we talked about how that's going to be a night game, and how cool it's going to be to play Notre Dame at night in the Big House next year.  He asked me what grade I'm in and when I said I just graduated but am going to grad school and will be here a while, he responded that hopefully I'll see a national championship soon!

He had just been coming into the store a second time to get some extra ranch sauce, and when he left, I told the girl working there that he was the Michigan Football quarterback.  She said, "Oh, that's who it was... He walked in here and asked, 'Do you know who I am? I'm Denard.' And I was like, Hi, Denard."  I thought that was pretty funny.

I was going to post this story on here right after it happened, but I thought it would get a lot of "that's a cool story, man" sarcastic responses.  But since you asked...

I was meeting with some clients on State right across from the Union yesterday when Denard meets up with Tay Odoms and Vincent Smith. They were heading in opposite directions and didn't linger, but they all had their dreads. It's strange to see players shorter than me.

I was driving south down US 23 toward the Ohio border when I saw a dilithium headlight padiddle approaching quickly in my rearview mirror.  Wait, no . . . .  Denard was passing me in the right-hand lane, slowed down to wave hello, and then shot off down the highway.  All he left in his wake were sweet tracers from his dreads and loose shoelaces.

That's one hell of a lot of MGoPoints being handed out on this thread, all in the name of the fastest, most exciting quarterback in college football.   I can't wait to see what this guy can do.

One time I was walking down State St. near Quickie Burger and Denard was going in the opposite direction. We're not acquaintances and I just continued on my merry way, but when I passed him he nodded and said "what's up." I'm trying to think of a witty analogy to characterize this exchange but to no avail. Nice kid.
