I've posted on this board for a while now. Many of you know that I am a UM fan and hope that you think I'm generally pretty levelheaded. I'm currently a student at UM and I have met Denard a number of times and know many people that know him personally. And I'm sorry, but I just have a really hard time believing that this happened. That is totally against everything Denard has ever said or done to the media or to anyone I know.
...beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there's a river without a name.
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
Sorry to disappoint, but it happened.
I have a ton of respect for Denard (not so much for UM) and don't find this too out of character. A couple drinks in him, in his own neighborhood, trying to joke around a little. I said way stupider things than that when I was his age, trying to be funny.
I like to play "bathroom detective". Corn?! I didn't eat any corn!
Double-post. (old bang head attached)

This. I think the UM lurkers posting here are blowing this WAY out of proportion.
I'm thinking this way, too. Probably feeling the king of the world, just having a little fun. Probably needed to piss, too.
Exactly. Seems like a little good natured trash talk. It isn't like he started a fight or anything.
Yup. I don't mind him joking around--that's part of the rivalry. The mindless hero worship gets a little old--especially when they come on here to start shit...
Got many acquaintances? Denard may be smart enough to downplay the significance of losses to MSU to the media, and cool enough to be gracious to other Michigan fans. Doesn't automatically mean that he won't respond when he sees someone wearing Green & White. Especially in "his" town.
I don't find the anecdote difficult to believe at all. How hard a time do you think Will Gholston would give a guy wearing maize & blue in an EL bar? Hell, I bet even Cousins would say something to him. And in the realm of jabs, "little brother" has picked up a little cachet since Bike Hart used it after UM's last victory of MSU, all those years ago.
You don't think Hoke has something to say about MSU to his team? The guy who can't bring himself to add "State" after "Ohio"? Please.
Denard's shit may not stink around Wolvy fans, but don't doubt that he's a competitor, and don't doubt that he'd like to twist the knife any way he can against anyone from MSU he can. Which rules out Will Gholston, ARW, Denicos, LT, .... You get the picture. Yeh, can't get it done against the team, take it out on the fanbase.
And get owned AGAIN.

Thank you, Denicos.
You're wasting the best years of your life (even if they are at scUM) posting on a rival school's message board. So sad.

You are, don't worry. I think most people here enjoy a little trash talk and fun. Sounds like Drob might have been doing a little of it, and we're doing a little back. The mindless UM fans PR nazis who take offense can leave, though.
toffee, just your typical Victurd;
This is exactly why Sparty will never be an elite program. They need to differentiate the difference between a rivalry v a constant comparison w/ UM.

They need to focus on what's great about their program rather than focusing on why they are purportedly better than Michigan.
Many of their fans are delusional and only look at things to their own spectrum. Saying stuff like we beat Michigan 4 years in a row, so why would a recruit go to Michigan? That's such a stupid question. Look your program has a Loy of thing going for it, but you're not going to win by constantly comparing yourselves to us. We have the winningest program in college football history; you can't beat our tradition, history, facilities, o money. You laud recent success, but we'veost recently made and won BCS games. You've never made one.
You also have to understand that many of the things that were important to many of us applying to colleges are important to them. Michigan is a far better academic school. The average person would pick UM over mSU in a heartbeat.
There really is no winning by constantly comparing itself to Michigan. Other rival schools such as Auburn (Bama's rival) figures this out an became a great program. Florida figured this out under Spurrier. Sparty needs to figure this out.

Not a fan of this post my Michigan brethren. Go over to MGoBlog and there are plenty posts about MSU...it's what a rivalry is.
Thank him for being UM's QB.
Hmmm, New Yorker with Comcast?
Why is that so hard to believe? I was at the MSU/um volleyball game a couple years back and B____ went past me and my nephew was sitting on my lap. When he went past he looked at my nephew and said "Don't worry, you can root for michigan when you grow up." It wasn't horrible, but WHY would you even say that? I mentioned how Izzo owned him and that was the end of that.
I could see a player calling someone "little brother". All the meeeeeechigan lemmings call Ohio State, Ohio.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
Is this from the same guy the wrote the story about the UM assistant on the plane?
What a rambling, incoherent mess. Eastern needs to raise their standards.
that wasn't me.
And most of them are fucking jagoffs
This may be the best response to an ass-hole that I have seen on this board in quite some time. So Much Win... +100 if I could
I BLEED RED, GREEN and WHITE: MSU, ARSENAL FC, ATL Falcons
Lighten up Francis.
UM, Green Bay and Chicago teams all have one thing in common: They all suck
