LOL @ Brendan Gibbons

http://www.annarbor.com/mi/wolverine...ver-under_w_6/

ANN ARBOR -- "Brendan Gibbons and Taylor Lewan walk into a restaurant ... "

It sounds like the start to a bad joke. And for Gibbons, it was.

The pair visited an Olive Garden during the 2010 season, when Gibbons started 1-of-4 before being benched, and asked their waitress what she thought of Michigan's kicker. But she didn't recognize Gibbons, and didn't hold back her criticism of him.

"I mean, just make a kick!" she said to them. "What are you doing?

"Well this is No. 34, this is Brendan Gibbons, hes our kicker,' Lewan responded with a laugh. "She was like, Oh my God, Im so sorry, can I get you guys some free pasta or something?"

Embarrassing then. But three years and 29 made kicks later, Gibbons certainly can laugh off the exchange.

it was a good thing RR finally had a chance to teach him how to kick right before he got fired.

it was really unrealistic of people to expect Gibbons to play better because RR, needed to spend 98% of his time up til that point getting the offense running to perfection, and didn't get a chance to coach him prior to that

Wasnt it Tony Gibson with the special teamers there at the end? I could have swore to god it was his professional teaching expertise on display.

When hoke came in he asked the kickers how much they practiced at the stadium, they said almost never

He had them kick up there as part of their practices

Hoke, January 2011: "Why is the kicking game so bad? Do you guys practice?"
Kickers: "Sure do. Coach Rod has us practice on the playstation 2. he said the controls are more realistic than the Xbox. He's a genius. One of the tops minds in college football today."

Arizona lucked out that Gibson decided to go back to West Virginia. Their pass defense was already one of the worst in the country. Who knows how bad Gibson could have made them?! I'm sure the Mountaineers are overjoyed by the re-hiring of the worst football coach on earth.

wow, yeah, you're right. I thought they were inseparable based on how he not only retained him on our staff, but promoted him to assistant HC.

that guy was a cancer. every position he coached for us went to hell.

looks like he brought in a couple older guys to coach his OL & DL on his team, but it's still a young crew... lot of grad assistants. there is a Parrish on staff, surprisingly, so a tenuous Michigan connection still.

Sorry to derail this thread, but Gibbons is a rapist and a complete ass-clown. He doesn't represent Michigan well in any facet of life.

I can't answer to all of that, but I do know that's not 100% true. he does kick FGs well, which is a facet of life, and one in which he represents Michigan well.
