You can bet that Jake Butt had to endure a lot of bullying in his childhood. With a name that is the favorite taboo word of most children, he probably heard all of it growing up.
Suffice it say, he’s probably hard to embarrass, but this should do the trick.
One of the parts of NFL rookie hazing that remain is haircut day. Veteran players give the young bloods crazy, stupid haircuts. Most of them are hack job type cuts. But the one Jake Butt received takes it to another level. His is personal.
On Wednesday, Butt had his latest haircut posted proudly on the internet for the world to see. What’s the worst thing you can do to someone from Michigan? Make them walk around with an Ohio State trademark in their hair.
Butt might have gotten the short end of the stick on rookie haircut day, but it’s nothing compared to his precipitous drop in the NFL Draft. After an injury in Michigan’s bowl game saw him fall from likely first-round selection, to a fifth-round flyer for the Broncos, Butt has a lot to prove.
If he is able to come back healthy, he could be the steal of the draft.
