Asked at the NFL Combine about The Rivalry, Stoneburner quickly announced with a smirk, "I got four pairs of gold pants."
Preparing for the NFL Draft at Performance Enhancement Professionals in Scottsdale, alongside former Wolverines Craig Roh, Kenny Demens and J.T. Floyd, Stoneburner took the opportunity to get in some verbal jabs:
"There were three Michigan guys there, and they had nothing to say because I had four pairs, and they beat us one time, and it came on a down year -- and they barely even beat us that year. The last one, to end my senior year, at home, beating them, going 12-0 -- that's something I'll never forget."
Informed he had erroneously lumped in former Sparty William Gholston with the group of Wolverines, Stoneburner replied:
"I guess that's Michigan State. Same area -- still sucks."
