Mike Spath points out that doing an interview for the official site is a pretty good indicator he'll be back.
So I have a question about the Michigan vs UConn game. I remeber reading a few weeks ago that Rich Rod was trying to bring back all the current NFL alumni has honorary captains for the UConn game, does anyone have any further info on how many players, if any, will be attending?
Just read an interesting article on Tony Washington on ESPN. I wasn't familiar with the story and thought it was an interesting one. Not the best-written article, but a powerful story of the struggles some athletes face in their personal lives and the mental strength it takes to rise above them. Anyway, just thought a few of you might enjoy this. If nothing else, it will be 15 minutes less of the agonizing wait for UConn.
DIdn't see this posted so I thought I'd mention it. Prescott Burgess had 6 tackles 2 of them being sacks and a TFL against the Redskins. Looks like another Michigan preseason all- star. Really hoping Burgess pans out; i'll never forget his two interceptions against Notre Dame when we slaughtered them in 2006.
Apparently since Caleb Hanie got injured in the first preseason game and Dan LeFevour threw five picks in the same game, the Bears are flying in Gutz as a potential backup. This is after a bunch of old-timers turned them down (including our own Todd Collins).
Nothing too exciting, but interesting to see that the Michigan-starting-QB-who-almost-was is still hanging around in the NFL. Good for him. I've never seen him play in the preseason before, but I'll definitely be watching him if he ends up signing.
(Figured it was OT for being pro sports and since the school he actually played at was Idaho State, yet on-topic for the Michigan connection. So... semi-OT.)
Tonight is BG's debut as a NFL bonecrushing DE. He did not start but has played every drive since. So far, he's had one great QB pressure and hit, and has been featured twice by the announcers. Updates of note to follow.
