We here at Mustaches for Michigan follow MGoBlog closely, as we know you all do. So we think you'll find today's post MGoWorthy as we revive... wait for it... NAKED MAN.

As always, we hope you'll follow along with us leading up to the Opener at: www.mustachesformichigan.com
Brian, let's see that 'stache!
I'm quite glad for this since it should help keep Tate out of trouble and away from any bad influences.
I believe that it's a rule that football players must live in the dorms their first two years so unless I'm wrong or Tate got a special exception, Jason will be living in the dorms (almost certainly South Quad) this year too. He must really want his brother to succeed to put up with that life again.
So with Teric Jones moving to CB, it got me thinking; have we overloaded ourselves with slot recruits? Right now we have Tay Odoms, Terrence Robinson, Jeremy Gallon, and Kelvin Grady battling it out for one position. Jones was brought in as a slotback, so has he moved to CB due to better chance of early PT or because of too much competition at slot? Teric's move to CB and Grady's solid play so far seems to indicate that we are covered well at the slot position for this year.
So I'm not sure what to make of our slot recruiting for the 2010 class. We're bringing in Dileo, Drake, and Austin White (who I think is a better fit at slot than at RB). That will make 7 guys for one position. I remember reading numerous posts by WVU fans saying that Rod tended to over-recruit on offense and moved guys to defense to fill holes accordingly. Perhaps we might see this effect in regards to the slot position? CB depth is pretty bad for us right now. Not criticizing what we're doing recruiting wise; just trying to figure out how this is all going to play out. Michigan's recruiting strategy under Rod can be confusing sometimes...
I don't know how many people went and read the blog post by Clay Travis that Brian posted beneath the Youtube 97' Highlights. Judging by some of the comments on there I say some of you might have read it.
Well I am here to give you the chance to exploit this UT homer on his own radio show. His show here in Tennessee begins at 7pm Cen. or 8pm est. time. It can be heard on 1045thezone.com. More importantly, if any of you would love to join me in calling out this man on his own show, with some of his Berry's Sophomore year was better than Woodson's Heisman year crap, or even more Manning to Woodson that year crap, please feel free to join me. The numbers to call in are....
Toll Free @ 1-866-492-zone (9663)
Here also is the link to his page on the website with his e-mail..
Have at him boys, we need all the Woodson and Michigan support we can get in this Orange prison jumpsuit state. When they ask what you want to talk to Clay about, just say Eric Berry and Heisman, you are a lock to get through. Mention Woodson in the same breath with Heisman, Berry or Manning, you WILL be hung up on. They don't like to be wrong here.
EDIT: I apologize gentlemen, it looks like his worthless show is only on Tuesday nights from 7-9pm Cen. time. At least fill his e-mail box up with FACTS, and next Tuesday I will let him have it, still feel free to join me then if you like.
Games:359 ND Wins:231 ND Losses:124 Ties:4 Pct:0.649
Games:367 UM Wins:267 UM Losses:95 Ties:5 Pct:0.734 (UMs overall winning percentage went down a full .016 or 1.6% bc of last year)
Games:349 MSU Wins:171 MSU Losses:175 Ties:3 Pct: 0.494
This was not intended as some sort of claim or message but, instead, simply making the numbers available should it be helpful or useful for others. It is interesting to see how dominant the Michigan team has been over 30 years in which there were some tough 7-5 seasons. I had also forgotten MSU had a 2-9 and 0-11 season in their record, as recently as 1994.
"There run's through the core of all Michigan activities both on and off this campus, a certain intangible thing. We call it "The Michigan Spirit". Maybe you can relate to it. It's the atmosphere that permeates that stadium every Saturday afternoon in the fall where over a hundred thousand fans patiently wait to see whether Bo Schembechler is going to continue his winning ways. You know what I mean! You can feel the tension, the excitement, the charisma that surrounds that stadium every Saturday afternoon. Especially ten to fourteen minutes before kickoff. When a hush settles over that stadium and we all anxiously wait for that simple 4 word command to eminate out of the P.A. system. I can hear it now! "Band take the field!" and out of that eastern tunnel pour 215 well drilled, well disciplined Michigan bandsmen. They pour over the Eastern sideline and they form the big block M and they play the greatest college fight song ever written! The Michigan Victors!! That's when the chills go up and down your spine! You get goose pimples all over, your blood turns maize and blue and everyone out there becomes part of the winningest tradition in the history of Big Ten football as well as the winningest tradition in the history of Big Ten athletics. Folks lets join in and sing the song that the late and great John Phillip Sousa claimed was the greatest college fight song ever written. The Michigan Victors!!!"
