‘Give ’em the works, Cubby! We ain’t got a minute to lose! This ain’t a newspaper story — it’s a career! Why, they’ll be naming streets after you!’
It is that time of the year again.
Key and Peele have some special guests to make this one really special.
Angelique Chengelis has a brief article up tonight at the News entitled Harbaugh making a big push for Mike Weber, Wilcher says. There isn't much new in the article. The one thing I find interesting is that Wilcher, a former Michigan RB, is no longer making predictions on where Weber will end up. Previously, Wilcher thought Weber was going to OSU. Chengelis writes:
Cass Tech coach Thomas Wilcher said Wednesday he doesn't know where Weber stands on his football future right now.
"Harbaugh has been calling Weber since he got here," Wilcher said.
EDIT: They are following this very closely over at Eleven Warriors. Reading through the comments, they are all over the place (We want him. We have other backs who are better anyway. He wants to go to Michigan. His heart is at OSU but Harbaugh won't leave him alone.)
Eleven Warriors LINK: Weber signs with UofM?
My two cents: Weber himself doesn't know which way to go. Neither school is jumping out to him in a clear and undeniable way. Both schools have pros and cons. He will choose with his gut and maybe those closest to him on Feb. 4. No way to know which way that will be.
There is an association between participation in tackle football prior to age 12 and greater later-life cognitive impairment measured using objective neuropsychological tests. These findings suggest that incurring repeated head impacts during a critical neurodevelopmental period may increase the risk of later-life cognitive impairment.
NYT write ups...
The hits keep coming. Having played pop warner ball I have to wonder about my own precocious senior moments. This goes beyond NFL players.
The CTE story is the stake in the heart of the game that is slowly being twisted deeper with every study despite NFL huddling with mothers and settlements with players.
Do players sign releases in college? It's getting to that point. Michigan's exposure is already played out in past stories with first hand accounts from Michigan players. In my heart I think it is time to find another past time. Baseball anyone?

It has been mentioned in the other thread, yet I thought this deserved its own. 3-star wideout deontay burnett out of serra california was offered by michigan. He is currently committed to Wash. State and it would seem like we would have a good chance to flip him to michigan. He is taking an OV this weekend at the same time Van Jefferson will be on campus.
Vince is in Toledo tonight, seemed like a pretty cool guy. Asked him about the Michigan offer and he said you have a great coach there, don't worry. I assume he is recruiting someone here.
