A constant stream of selfies are often the mark of the narcissist on Instagram, but psychologists are still debating the meaning of nine headshots in one picture. Here's the caption:

A lil compilation of how I'm feeling right now! Visited with the doctor today and I am finally off of crutches! #TripleBlessed #AllSmiles #ThankGod

How did he go about compiling these photos? What photos were left on the chopping room floor? These are the questions to which our country requires answers.

This has to be one of my favorite gif's of all time. Seeing that live was a great source of laughter and joy.

If only that play had decided the outcome.

Interestingly, all of these photos were taken by Brady Hoke. Among his many talents, he fancies himself a brilliant amateur photographer.

Smile for walking again crutch-free.
Mean mug for getting a degree in Undeclared.

Just curious..what is this "undeclared" thing that is often written here. Per the Michigan football site, he has a bachelor's degree in Afro-American and African Studies. I think I recall when he graduated in May 2013 that someone looked back at the Michigan bio from the past season (so written in August 2012 probably which says he was undeclared then). So at that time he had finished about 2/3 of his school (since he graduated in 3yrs) and hadnt declared major. Is that where this "undeclared " thing comes from or is there something else?

I think so KHolmes.  I don't know whether or not it is even possible to graduate in undeclared.  I am just giving the guy a hard time, you know, because he is your quarterback.

Fair enough...the hard time for being the QB is expected. i just didnt know if I was missing some other story behind it.

This is where it comes from:

My guess is that it is like an 'inside joke' that at the time of his graduation his bio still said undeclared or, as you mentioned, it was an old not updated bio. And obviously, what Buckeye fan doesn't enjoying taking a shot at a Michigan QB? Just having fun.

What is this? A center for ants?!? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read if they can't even fit inside the building?

KHolmes....that degree is TOTALLY useless if you're looking to have the official title of "Offensive Weapon" in the NFL.

When he graduated his official Michigan profile had all of his football statistics updated through the most recent season, with his major as "Undeclared." He had already graduated.

Michigan changed his major from Undeclared after he graduated.

Edit: Yup, looks like the Buckshot detailing that story is linked in this thread

KHolmes: it's probably also an offshoot of the jokes about General Studies being a major (oxymoron).

Devin Gardner proves he's off crutches by proclaiming they will win in Columbus this year.  Another year of falsities.

If multiple upvotes were allowed, I'd make you the helmet sticker leader right now.

At least a 'certain' mod would be poaching stickers from somebody else for a change...

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

Good point.

At the rate Bucks43201is losing stickers, he could take his without anyone noticing. Diabolical!
