How Does Jake Butt's Injury Impact Doug Nussmeier's Offense? - Friday, February 21, 2014 8:17 AM

Tight end Jake Butt’s recent ACL injury that was announced by the Michigan athletic department depletes an already thin position group for Doug Nussmeier in his first season as offensive coordinator. The graduation of last season’s top receiver Jeremy Gallon and reliable option Drew Dileo leaves quarterback Devin Gardner without two of his favorite targets while Butt’s injury threatens to have serious implications as Nussmeier tries to retool the Michigan offense.

Butt, a tight end for Michigan, is Gardner's favored receiver in the end zone.
 
Okay, that will be my one and only Butt joke.  I've refrained myself up to this point.

That was pretty good actually. Can I add this to the end of your sentence?  "because of his sure hands, and ability to grip the balls securely allowing him to score often"......

Nothing is more frustrating, or as useless, as a broken Butt.
Every day you get up for work, just remember that we are all Dave Brandon's hoes.

I was going to throw out my own pun, but figure I should just Butt out at this point.

I think he would have played a large roll in the red zone. So it hurts from that stand point.
