FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
Wojo has an article up that's very good. One thing that occurred to me is that OSU just had a season like we had so many times in the 90s... early three or four losses, win as big underdog in the Game, bowl win to make your 8-4 turd a very polished 8-4 turd.
Meanwhile, if we Herrmann away the Rose Bowl 9-3 is not going to look very good to anyone. Herrmann, in fact, gets called out by Michael Rosenberg in his latest Free Press article which echoes the sentiments of every UM fan who is not directly related to Herrmann: shape up (now) or ship out (now).
I'm sick of any quarterback with the slightest ability to run looking like some goofy-looking white bench scrub playing the Pistons in the playoffs.
Michigan will miraculously not be in the consolation game of the GLI this year after beating Michigan Tech 4-2 in an often sloppy game. Tech's Chris Connor made UM defenders look silly all game, but couldn't pick up any points to show for it.
Jason Ryznar, David Moss, and Charlie Henderson played extremely well for Michigan. Ryznar found the form he seems to grab periodically throughout the season where he dominates everyone on the boards and finds people with his passes. He made a ridiculous behind-the-back pass to Henderson for the go-ahead goal in the second period and picked up a Moss rebound and jammed it home in the third.
Henderson found himself in the right place to score on that Ryznar pass and also made a great pass to Moss to set up Ryznar's goal.
Tambellini also had a great game, firing off a ton of high quality shots and assisting on Michigan's final goal, a bang-bang-bang Tambellini to Nystrom to Moss PP beauty.
Michigan had a huge edge in shots on goal due largely to the forwards' ability to dominate the puck. Michigan Tech is a bad, bad defensive team but Connor's a dynamite little player and Michigan did a mediocre-at-best job of containing him and his teammates on D. I really don't have much faith in this defensive corps. Oh well.
MSU or UNH tomorrow. Haven't won the GLI since 1996. Do it to it.
If this is the real Grovecity Wolverine and his info is correct, hurray. It does seem that Slocum's waiting long enough to find out his scores and grades to see if he qualifies. And in a subsequent post he says some encouraging things about Harris.
I personally think that Harris is gone and has been for a while, but getting Slocum would be the shizzle. GCW has been wrong before, although in situations wherein the Michigan coaches were also wrong.
GBW has a good recap of a Terry Malone press conference.
More discussion Grady actually participating in the Rose Bowl practices. He'll definitely play next year. He could technically play THIS year, but they aren't going to blow a year of eligiblity to do so.
Resident Rivals rabblerouser detroitbry talked with a HS coach about K'len Morris. I don't know if it's K'len's coach but I think it is. Sounds like a capable player who won't Carmeloize the program but will be a four-year type guy.
