Awful news from Tucson: Arizona 5th year offensive lineman Zach Hemmila, 22, passed away in his sleep (no word on cause of death). He was in contention to be the Wildcats starting center. Too young to be gone this soon. RIP. Link
I wouldn't dare post this in the middle of the season, but it might be good for some pre-season laughs:
This dude is a breath of fresh air man:
“Obviously if I feel like I couldn’t make an impact then I shouldn’t have this job,” Baxter said. “I do feel like we can make an impact.”
“It’s upsetting to me the last time we’ve returned a kick or a punt (for a touchdown) was 2007 or 2008,” Baxter said. “Last time we returned a field goal for a score was 2003. That’s way too long. I can just tell you this, we are going to approach this football team and this camp with some tremendous urgency.”
“When those things happen, it’s when they happen,” Baxter said. “But I’ll tell you what, my expectations is that it happens tomorrow.”
From petitions to oust Brandon, to organizing protests over Brandon, to starting kickstarter campaigns to induce Harbaugh, the blogosphere and this blog in particular have had
fantastic good intermittent success in fomenting change in Michigan football. Yeah us!
So, with that in mind, we are now taking nominations for the 2014 Michigan Football Bust Theme Song. Once we have a winner, I will bribe the Laurel Manor catering and A/V staff to play the song over the PA system at the appropriate time (right before Coach Hoke's speech). No Josh Groban this time around, though. We'll have none of that!
So, what do you all want to hear as the theme song? The Doors' The End? Neil Sedaka Breaking Up Is Hard To Do? The Afghan Whigs' Jail?
Vote in the comments. We'll make this happen.

Accomplished with a redshirt freshman QB and a freshman RB. Yeah. It just didn’t work here and it never would have.

This should be good….
