Michigan is one of very few college football programs that never puts out a depth chart, so its Week 3 opponent, Colorado, released one for the Wolverines.
How good is this? 3-foot-5 Eric Cartman at left tackle. Manute Bol as the second-string “thin receiver.” Elmer Fudd at quarterback. James Bond (No. 007, of course) at defensive tackle. Bernie Sanders as the free safety (get it?).
Too funny. This isn’t the first time Colorado sports information director Dave Plati has done something like this. It used to put out fake injury reports back in its Big 12 years with Kansas State, which was also tight-lipped about player injuries.
The depth chart isn’t Plati’s first mock masterpiece. In the 1990s, when teams issued official injury reports, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder refused to release one, so Plati countered with fake reports for Colorado.
“The best injury I had was Don Corleone, doubtful, bullet wounds,” Plati said.
That’s not the only fun thing the Buffaloes have going on this week. The team will wear the same uniform combination it wore back on September 24, 1994. Don’t remember that date? This should jog your memory:
Yep, that’s the afternoon of Kordell Stewart’s famous Hail Mary to beat the Wolverines. Pretty good. Oh, and here’s the uniform:
Michigan, ranked No. 4 in the country, and Colorado have played four times in history, and that Hail Mary is the only win for the Buffs.
Both teams are 2-0 to start off the season heading into Saturday’s matchup at Michigan Stadium. The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET.
