"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."
Apparently, Devin Gardner and Jeremy Gallon will be guest judges at Pioneer High School's annual FutureStars talent competition tonight.
This according to my daughter who is in the show. Denard and Kelvin Grady were judges at last year's finals, and according to my kid they get a couple of M players every year.
The show's been sold out for a week, but if you want to see Devin and Jeremy as celebrity judges the event is streaming here (for a fee): http://www.stageit.com/pioneer_theatre_guild/futurestars_finals/18232
The Raycom College All-Star Classic, with Roy Roundtree playing for the Stripes team (wearing number 89; being coached by Head Coach Dan Reeves and wide receivers coach Keenan McCardle; and catching passes from Iowa’s James Vandenberg and Purdue’s Robert Marve - but playing in a red uniform, perhaps as a tribute/throwback to his Trotwood-Madison HS playing days), will be played today in Montgomery, Alabama (TV: CBS Sports Network at 3 PM) Link to the game’s website:http://collegeallstargame.com/
The East-West Shrine All-Star Game, with Will Campbell playing for the West team (wearing number 73) along with ex-Wolverine Dann O’Neill (Western Michigan offensive tackle) will be played today in St. Petersburg (TV: NFL Network at 4 PM) Craig Roh had been listed on the game’s roster, but he elected to train for the NFL Draft in Arizona with Kenny Demens, J. T. Floyd and (strangely) MSU’s Will Gholston. Link to the game’s website:http://www.shrinegame.com/
The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, with Elliott Mealer playing for the National team (wearing number 76 and playing offensive tackle) along with Rice’s Sam McGuffie (ex-Wolverine, wearing number 81) will be played today at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California and televised on ESPN2 at 5:00 p. m. EST. Link to the game’s website: http://collegiate.nflpa.com/#!home
The Logo Helmet Sticker Question
It will be interesting to see whether the Michigan players will add other schools' logo helmet stickers to their helmets and whether Dann O'Neill and Sam McGuffie will feature the BLOCK M prominently on their helmets.
Per the bottom line on ESPN, I'm sure there are links everywhere. Seems like a strange way to decide to tell his story. Maybe someone advising him went with the whole "wait til Friday to give bad news" theory and doubled down by moving it to midnight in hopes to downplay it even further.
