I have an ID on our Tall guy:

Robert Adams
Assistant Professor of Architecture





Is it just me or does this not even look like the same person??? But if he's been identified... :duno:

And this guy looks nothing like the smaller man either.
I found this picture of a Joel Schmidt from Michigan who looks like the pic above & he's definitely not the smaller guy of the small/tall guy team.

i was gonna say the same thing...neither of the 2 guys look like our 2 guys on the team.  the little guy especially...and the head shape of the big guy and of robert adams dont really match.

Not to mention that Robert's hair is a different color

the picture of robert is from 5 years ago...so hairs may turn gray...but the shape of one's head just doesnt change.

Here's an article about Robert Adams dated (week of) April 2, 2012.
http://ur.umich.edu/1112/Apr02_12/3416-disability-rights-influence

In this article is a more recent picture of him, and while I must say that it is close, I don't think it's him on the race.

ETA: Our racer has lighter (and less) hair and eyebrows, different glasses, and other things that wouldn't have changed so dramatically over the course of two months.

This might sound crazy... but I am pretty sure I have seen the U of M team before (at least "tall"). I don't go to U of M (yet :lol: ), but I have been on tours and stuff.

If my memory serves me right, however, I saw them somewher else, possibly at a U of M football prty of some sort (at someone's house).

They could be professors, but I don't think they are. If anything, they're probably (at least in my opinion) grads.

I will look through a few Facebook networks tomorrow and tell you what I can find. :tup:

Thank you (and to the others too). I was really trying to see the match but just couldn't, that's why I posted.

I'm actually divided. My mom's MSU, my dad's U of M. I'm somewhere in the middle, and I always get dragged around to both. :lol:

Anyways, I will look tomorrow, and I will ask my dad and some other U of M grads I know if there are any familiar faces. :tup:

I probably should have post the post in this thread, but the "goat farmers" if they've been correctly identified (and I do think that they have) are engaged to be married (as residents of New York state where same sex marriage became legal in 2011.) So there's a good chance the show may use the tag "engaged." In addition to another season of their show The Fabulous Beekman Boys that will be aired later this year on cable, the engagement in December was filmed for the next season of The Real Housewives of New York, so these guys are totally reality show nerds. Don't know if the producers will play up the goat farmers (or herders, more accurately) or not.

Okay, no need to keep quoting the pics, lol.

We love you Chateau, but I have to agree...just do not see the resemblance!

I was thinking the little guy is Maichael from Mark&Michael TAR 14, but when I look at their origin, they're from CA, and Michael from HI..  :lol:

Curious if these 2 looked like brothers or even twins to anyone else. Both pictures look like they have very similar builds (quite slim) and looking at the eyes and nose in the second picture they look like they could be related.

Now that you say that, I'm beginning to wonder. I would speculate that they are at least related in some way. :tup:

But seriously there are not three twin teams :lol:

According to Zouly, we also have to look for a Kate.   :gaah:

So that's why they are wearing so much orange! I don't think he could be a current football player because spring practice has already begun. But they could have already graduated.
