As I'm celebrating a successful signing day with a cold brew, I was curious as to the favorite microbrews of the MGoBoard. Having gone to college in Grand Rapids, I'm partial to the West Michigan microbreweries such as Bells, Founders, New Holland, and Arcadia. What are your favorite beers?
My top 3:
1. Bells Oberon
2. Founders Centennial IPA
3. Bells Winter White
What do you guys think? How many wins will Michigan need to post to keep RichRod safely as the head coach?
I just spoke with a buddy of mine (who, parenthetically, played for Bo back in the mid '70s as a walk on) and we tend to agree that 8 wins will work, with 7 wins being "borderline."
I not too sure that a 6-win "Chic-fil-A" bowl birth will do much for RR's job security.
According to the Detroit News, Palazeti is still in play, as of today. No call from MSU with an offer as of yet, apparently.
Not sure of his use in Michigan's new offense, but my heart tells me he's a Michigan-type throwback who could contribute.
Any other information on this? Could the news from the News be old? I know Scout has him committed to MSU.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound safety plans to sign with Michigan on Wednesday, the first day recruits can ink binding letters of intent, regardless of what late prospects the Wolverines add.
Michigan has three safeties already committed for its 2010 class in Vinopal, Marvin Robinson and Carvin Johnson, and the Wolverines are still recruiting three others - Sean Parker, Rashad Knight and Demar Dorsey.
Vinopal is the biggest sleeper of that group and the lowest-ranked member of Michigan’s 26-person class according to Rivals.com.
He committed to the Wolverines in early December after leading Cardinal Mooney to a state championship. At the time, Vinopal’s only other scholarship offers were from Air Force, Bowling Green and Kent State, though Wisconsin and Vanderbilt pursued him more recently.
Cardinal Mooney coach P.J. Fecko cautioned not to read too much into Vinopal’s mediocre recruiting ranking.
“He’s somebody that will earn everybody’s respect up in Ann Arbor on the football field and off the football field,” Fecko said. “If they aren’t believers right now, I guarantee you they will be very, very shortly.”
I know it's not exactly a new flash to people, but the officiating of the Wisconsin game was horrendous. This is not MarioKart on N64, officiating should not handicap a team for being ahead. Michigan can't get a call all game, especially in the first half where time after time Michigan players got fouled without call and Wiscy gets the benefit because they're behind. But once there's a minute and a half left, Manny gets the call he hasn't gotten all game and Gibson (who played terrible) gets away with an egregious foul.
You might say this is sour grapes and you'ld pry be right considering this game coupled with the UConn win would give new life to the season. As such, we go right back to having to go probably 8-4 the rest of the way against a brutal schedule.
Finally, I want to say it's still not the reason we lost IMO, as we missed layups and couldn't manufacture offense down the stretch, but it still kills me to have games influenced so strongly by the officials.
