Former Michigan running back Vincent Smith started a Reddit AMA on Tuesday afternoon. For those that aren't familiar, AMA stands for "ask me anything", and it's a popular crowd interview method on Reddit.
Naturally, Smith was asked about the hit South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney put on him in the 2013 Outback Bowl. From his responses on that subject:
My tight end missed the call on the down block ... Lol yea I took one for the team ... Lol the funniest [comment on the hit] was why didn't you shake him like you do everyone else, when he was right in my face as I was getting the ball..
Smith did the AMA as a way to get some publicity for his project, in which he will teach art classes for kids in his hometown of Pahokee, FL. Here's the kickstarter link, for those that are interested.
Check the link above to see the unabridged version. Here are some of the other highlights:
He and the rest of the players weren't supposed to read sites like MGoBlog or Maize n Brew, but he did sometimes.
He declined to answer who he liked better, Rich Rodriguez or Brady Hoke.
His favorite sub is chicken bacon and ranch on wheat, which does sound pretty good.
He doesn't like the cold very much.
