FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Who does the best Jim Harbaugh impression on the Michigan football team?
What was the best gift one of Florida State’s players received for Christmas?
The Orange Bowl has brought about many unique and offbeat questions to players and coaches from Michigan and Florida State, which has given the days leading into the bowl almost a Super Bowl Media Day type of feel.
Landof10, however, conducted its own survey for the Orange Bowl between No. 6 Michigan (10-2) and No. 11 Florida State (9-3). The Wolverines and the Seminoles meet for the first time since 1991 on Friday at 8 p.m. ET (ESPN) at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
The afternoon of the Orange Bowl, here’s a few answers to some of the less-pressing questions about the Michigan and Florida State football teams:
Who is your funniest teammate?
Chris Wormley, defensive lineman: “There’s different funnies. There’s guys that are funny just because of the way they look. There’s guys that make you laugh because they’re pretty humorous. Kyle Kalis is pretty funny, but him and (Erik) Magnuson together, I guess, are probably the funniest duo.”
(Go to the 5:19 mark of this video to watch Kalis and Magnuson in action.)
Freddie Stevenson, fullback: “We’ve got Keith Bryant, Ro’Derrick Hoskins. There’s a lot of funny guys on this team.”
If you could be one comic book superhero, who would it be?
Wormley: “My favorite was always Batman. Then, the Dark Knight came out, so that solidified it. Batman. Definitely Batman.”
Travis Rudolph, wide receiver: “I’d say Spiderman. He was my favorite superhero growing up.”
What was the best Christmas present you received?
Ben Gedeon, linebacker: “When I was little I got this sweet bike, probably in middle school. It was the best Christmas present I got. I rode that thing everywhere.”
Wormley: “This year, I got my yearly supply of boxers from my mom! My favorite, though was a Playstation 2 about 10 to 12 years ago.”
Rudolph: “This Apple Watch 2 that I’m wearing.”
Who is your team’s leader?
Wormley: “Someone’s who’s really surprised me is Wilton (Speight). Last year, he was someone who was just trying to find his way with learning the new offense, and he really blossomed.”
Gedeon: “This group of seniors, altogether, there’s so many leaders. Everyone’s played a lot of football and each of us have all been through some kind of adversity. We all kind of look up to each other.”
Rudolph: “We have a lot of team leaders, like Dalvin Cook, DeMarcus Walker, Freddie Stevenson. I’m also a leader within the wide receiver group. But one of the main, important leaders is Deondre Francois. That’s just to name a few, off the top of my head.”
Stevenson: “Offensively, I’d say Dalvin Cook. He’s the kind of leader that carries us through everything.”
Who on Florida State’s roster does the best Jimbo Fisher impersonation?
Rudolph: “I’d say me. Behind closed doors. I won’t do it in public.”
Stevenson: “A lot of us, since we’ve been here so long, could do one pretty well!”
Who on Michigan’s roster does the best Jim Harbaugh impersonation?
Wormley: “You try not to impersonate him too much, because you never know if he’s got cameras on us. But the best impersonation of coach Harbaugh? Ben Gedeon is pretty good at it.”
Gedeon: “Henry Poggi. He does a great impression of multiple coaches. Ryan Glasgow does the best of (defensive coordinator) Don Brown. I don’t know if I can do the Harbaugh impression. I can’t do that. Maybe off the books.”
And as a bonus, we’ll include footage of one of the more offbeat questions asked Thursday of Harbaugh. A Florida State beat reporter got a creative response from Harbaugh on … oranges. This is, after all, the Orange Bowl.
