Love this kid. He will be missed by all Michigan fans and college football fans. He was a great football player, but the reason I will miss him the most is the kind of person he was. He set the bar for a Michigan Man IMO. Goodbye Denard. We love you.
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
+infinity, excellent post
Set the Bar?
Ya....as in relocated it to a height for all others to strive for.
cuz he smiled and never got in trouble?
Patrick Omameh has the bar set pretty high IMO, he visited Mott's on a regular basis without being asked and was an All-B1G guard.
Not trying to say Denard wasn't a good kid or a Michigan man, but in no way did he set the bar simply because he went through coaching adversity and was successful.
Coaching adversity? How about adversity as a QB in general? How about everyone doubting him as good QB? How about how he never speaks about himself, but instead gives all the credit to others? I'm not saying Omameh isn't a Michigan Man, but he hasn't been under the microscope and scrutiny of DR. IMO, Denard Robinson is at the top of the list for Michigan Men.
Both Denard and Patrick are Michigan men!
Agreed about Omameh. Really high character and ability.
Since there is no definition of a Michigan Man, I can understand where you are coming from.
That said, I see a Michigan Man as someone who is humble on and off the field, while also being a large part of the community. Someone like Dhani Jones is a great example of that.
Being a part of the community is more than showing up at the basketball games.
Does the definition of a Michigan man include welching on bets? Are you just completely ignoring the ban bet you lost b/c ??????
No offense to the rest of you Michigan guys, you are all good people!
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
He has done much more than show up to Basketball games and for you to say that shows your ignorance.
I think I've had a max of 5-6 posts since the game. A majority of them being on a gaming thread because I was asked to post in it by another poster.
You also lost your bet of sec teams going undefeated btw.
Have someone ban me for a month though, I really don't post much on tBB.
First off, I never said that all the SEC teams would win, I gave you the choice of 3 games and said I would take the SEC team in any:
These were the choices:
The national Championship
My team's game (SCar)
My rival's team's game.(Clemson)
You are either talking about another SCar fan, or just making it up. I certainly never made a bet about the SEC winning all the games. Feel free to go back and look at the thread.
Second, are you being serious? Did we bet that you could only post a couple of times, or did we bet the loser was banned?
What it boils down to is you lost a bet, and now you aren't living up to your end.

I probably am mixing you up with another USCe fan, my bad.
Regardless, you are right, I have not lived up to the bet. I'm sorry.
But seriously, have one of the mods on tBB blacklist/ban me or else I will forget about the bet. I rarely post there, just read stuff, so I will probably forget I'm not supposed to post if I'm not blacklisted/banned.
Since I broke the bet, have the mod add a week to my blacklist/ban so I fulfill the whole month bet.
Not sure why you are attempting to make it a pissing match, and if you want a pissing match, what does Denard do in the community that you think sets the bar for being a Michigan Man?
I don't really care that much! Just noticed you posting on TBB this morning, and it reminded me of the "where is the USCe fan" thread you started the other day talking some smack.....I just thought you deserved a call out!
Not a big deal, it was a great game either way! Hope we play Michigan again soon.
I did deserve a call out, and I'll be honest I refrained from posting unless I saw something that set me off, but I did not live up to the bet as you said.
get a room or take it to PM
