Tacopants has asked for, and received a transfer release

Submitted by restive neb on September 13th, 2010 at 7:44 PM

Citing the change in offense under Rich Rodgriguez, which places a higher emphasis on running the football and underneath passing, Tacopants has decided that it was in his best interest to pursue other opportunities. Current speculation is that Notre Dame's passing attack has grabbed his attention.

There should be a Let Me Google That For You for the site.




"Tacopants"? Tacopants is Jason Avant's eleven-foot tall imaginary friend. Chad Henne spent much of 2005 hitting him between the numbers, which are unfortunately eight feet off the ground and made of dreams. Blessed with infinite eligibility and the ability to sneak on and off the field without alerting the referees -- made of dreams, remember -- Tacopants has taken a lesser role in the offense as Henne matures but still pops up at inopportune times. The term has its genesis in this post.


Sometimes you just gotta do a good deed during the day. Sadly, this is about all I've done.

If he loses a year of eligibility from infinity, he still has the same eligibility: infinity, thus he will not have to sit out. This is, by far, the most creative method of getting around the NCAA's transfer rules I have seen yet.

I am so sick of coming to this board the Monday after a big win and what do we get?  Another transfer!?!  How many of these guys is RR going to run off before we're left with Denard, Molk, and 18 guys who aspire to be Kovacs?  But then again, having re-read the original post, I see there's no link.  What's your source, OP (or should I say, Melanie Collins)?  Have you actually talked to Taco?  I won't believe Taco's really gone until TomVH has gotten confirmation from Taco's dad (first name Nacho, I believe -- or is that our new OL recruit?  Tough to keep it all straight).

Whose pants?




I believe Nachopants is actually Tacopants' brother who is trying out as a walkon for safety and kicker. I hear he lets TEs score to leave us enough time on the clock to make a comeback and can also kick the ball straight up in the air.

I believe the father is Quesopants, married to the lovely Salsapants. There is a very sexy sister named Fuegopants also. I hear she's aspiring to wear the maize and blue spandex on the volleyball team.

Loved it on both plays when the announcer said he "lobbed it into the back of the endzone".  More like the 10th row.

That's what I call great coaching

A former 5* recruit whose career seemed destined for stardom his RS Fr year.  However, after finding himself, as a 5th year Senior, buried on the depth chart behind a Fr and a walk-on he is looking to showcase his talents elsewhere.

God speed Tacopants, may tOSU, sparty, or the domers give you a chance to start.

A true living legend, an mgoblue.com poll recently named Tacopants the greatest Michigan athlete ever from the great state of South Detroit*.

On another note, I did notice that Ryan Mallett's old buddy, Tacoskirt, got in on one play in the second half.  Tacoskirt - who is dwarfed in stature even by our slot guys - is rumored to be unhappy as Denard hasn't been targeting him often.

Where he stood between the knees of a wide open Mario Manningham on one sideline during the Minnesota game and came up with a brilliant catch he unfortunately tripped on immediately for no gain. For the next play, Mallet went to Manningham instead who promptly ran for a 90 yard TD.
