"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."
John Feinstein at the WaPo rakes Meyer over the coals.
Not totally new information from the topic below, but confirmation via a Smith presser that Posey, Herron and Hall will be out for Nebraska for being overcompensated in a summer job they held with the guy who handed out cash envelopes at the charity event, Bobby DiGeronimo. Mostly small amounts of money, a couple hundred bucks, but Posey received over $700 and will face a longer suspension. Don't worry though, he'll almost certainly be back by the time they come to Ann Arbor!
Unclear whether the pay occured this summer while they were already under investigation or in years past.
"I am held accountable," Smith said. "That's why I'm sitting here today. We have to constantly work with our student athletes to educate them about accountability ... and then educate those people around them to ensure that our student athletes aren't taken advantage of by people around them."
Marcus hall is favoring us per scout... and Sam Montgomery had this to say to his local paper at palmettosports.com: "I was impressed by the bond of the players. They were all family. I loved them to death. There's no selfishness. They are all on the same page. They are ready to win some games. And playing opportunity is there. I'm high on Michigan right now. They are two steps ahead of everybody. But I'll wait and make my decision after all the visits."
There's an article on Rivals about Marcus Hall's visit to UM. He said Michigan's chances are "big" right now and that he's going to compare the rest of his visits to OSU and UM. It sounds like he liked it.
Unfortunately, though, William Campbell (who Hall became friends with at the AAA Bowl) wasn't in town due to the weather.
Also, nobody committed, but apparently some of Rivals' sources think we'll get "a few" commitments out of the guys who were there. Interesting...
