I and my cohosts at the Detroit City FC Fancast podcast sat down with Michigan Soccer seniors and Detroit City FC alumni Colin McAtee, Will Mellors-Blair, James Murphy and T.J. VanSlooten for a discussion about their time at City, their experiences at Michigan and what they're looking forward to in the upcoming season.

Probably everybody who is still interested in the NBA listens to Zach Lowe's podcasts, but for those who don't here is a great interview with Stan Van Gundy.
Key issues that SVG discusses:
1) Insight into the non-signing of Greg Monroe
2) Defensive switching on pick and rolls
3) Orlando vs. Detroit for attracting free agents
4) "Form a fucking wall!"
4a) "trying to be less controversial. . ."
TTB Andrew put up an interview of former Michigan linebacker Sam Sword this morning. He's living in Florida now and could still kick all of our asses.
If you could ask Barry any questions about his time at Michigan, or his relationship to Michigan athletics, what would it be?
Update: Press conference in 1 hour (3:30p ET). Last call.

Over the course of the last few days I have heard more about the intagibles then the X's and O's. I think that the team knows they have the talent and better personel to run the system this season but that is not what they are talking about. Mesko was talking to the press today and stated "it is just a feeling, we are gelling." Minor said it on MGOBLUE two days ago in a round about way. Brandon Graham looks as though he wants to literally eat some QB's. Also all three players talked about it at B10 Media Days. I know that every team skirts around the "we just have it attitude" but in the interviews I just see something that I did not see last year or trough the spring. IMO this team is coming together and has a fire like we have not see in a while. It is in there eyes they all have something to prove. Lets hope that they can take that fire and win some games and shut people up. Can't wait to kick off and we can all stop wondering what is to come.
