I was just thinking on what I would like to see as the Tigers roster next year - and trying to be realistic

Michigan officially announced the release of the schedule, including the talked about San DIego State game. Couple Notes
- 8 home games, all 4 non-conference in month of September at home
- bye week after non-conference before opening at Wisconsin on Oct. 8th
- 3 November home games including Minnesota, Illinois, and Ohio State
- OSU game to be played after Thanksgiving FWIW.
Summarized: The Boise State AD is looking for a big-name, big-money non-conference game for their remaining open date in 2011 (Sept 3). In a fan poll on this blog, Michigan is current leader, ahead of teams like Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. I realize fan polls mean little (read: nothing), but still.
Totally crazy? Maybe. The AD's willingness to schedule UConn this year may signal that we could take on a second non-creampuff in the future. I'm confidant (...ok, hoping) we'll contend for the Big Ten Title in 2011, so it probably wouldn't be a mismatch.
Should it happen we would open the season with Boise State, following it up with ND at night a week later. Yes, please.
If this sounds awful, who would you like to see instead?
Senior visitors include Rashad Knight, and Davione Rogers (DE/LB from Warren Harding). Commits visiting include Vinopal, Gardner, C. Jones, Kinnard, DJ Williamson, Paskorz. There may be others added.
Juniors for junior day include DeAnthony Arnett, Delonte Hollowell, Justice Hayes, Delonte Phillips, and Tony Springman. There should be more.
All of the above are confirmed and per Sam Webb on this morning's RR
So if any of you browse the ESPN blogs, this came up-
