Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
UConn is turrible. At one point Towson was outgaining UConn 112-5.
Interesting article featured in ESPN about this kid. Seems like a hard worker, with his head screwed on straight.
Mentions George Campbell and Damien Harris keeping up with him, hoping to sway him... Nice to hear
Sounds like Iowa has a shot with him, since they are the first to offer, and he is close with current player Broderick Binns.
Imagine what Mattison could do with him and Hand coming off opposite ends!!
It feels good to be back in Ann Arbor for the first game. If any one has a spot we can hangout on saturday and use for head quaders to sell our T-shirts that will be good. Thanks for the support.

I'm putting this as a forum topic because I don't want to bump the diaries off the front page and before I put more effort into making this a series, I want to see if there's any interest out there. I was perusing some art sites I frequent and saw some cool Tarot card designs. I thought that might be a cool idea for some art of my own, with a twist. I want to make Michigan coaches/players into Tarot cards. I know I won't be able to make them all fit, but the first one I thought of was Borges as "The Magician." Perhaps it's wishful thinking that this season will be magical, offensively.
Now, I'm not really into Tarot, so I did a little research and I think I can stretch it to work. Apparently, the Mythopoetic approach considers him as the following:
He represents the potential of a new adventure, chosen or thrust upon one.
A journey undertaken in daylight, in the Enlightenment tradition.
He brings things out of the darkness into the light.
Now, again with wishful thinking, but it kind of fits should we have a renaissance on offense. He was given the offensive players that were "thrust upon" him and made the best he could. Now we're hoping to see the new adventure that Hoke and company are bringing their players into the mix.
Anyway, I know it's a stretch, but I liked the whole idea enough to ask if others would like me to continue. I would not do a whole new diary series for them. I would just slide them into my wallpaper series whenever I finish one. Let me know if you would like to see more. Also, since I am less versed in this stuff, if anyone has good fits for future cards, I would welcome them. Saturday can't get here soon enough.
Wall Street Journal ranks college football teams by how good they are and what kind of shennanigans they have (embaressing to admirable) off the field.
Not sure why we aren't more admirable.
