I did not make this headline up
If you're in town for the NW game and want to see some future UM guys playing prep ball then considering a short drive to Saline Friday night. Game is at 7 and it's the 3rd round (elite 8) and Regional Championship in Division 1 Michigan High School Football.
Should be a great game. Cass Tech (Defending State Champs) have at least 7 Div I seniors. Including Jourdan Lewis and David Dawson. Damon Webb is heavy on Michigan's radar and they have 3 or 4 other Div I guys in that Junior class. Probably another 3 or 4 Sophomores that will play Div I ball.
Saline has had a great season under new coach Joe Palka who came from Whitmer in Toledo. Ex UM TE Kevin Koger is on his staff and even though Saline does not have a stud Div I kid .... they do play very well together as a team and should be able to hold their own vs Cass Tech.
It's $5 and a great time.
The ULM/Arkansas St game may be the more entertaining game tonight.
I wonder how this is affecting choices of Derrick Green, others...
Many people thought the run game's struggles this season (okay, the offense in general) would reflect poorly on Lewan's draft status. SI disagrees.
The Postgame (which is apparently a sports blog run by Yahoo) has a decent article on the non-sensical risk-aversion of football coaches especially in the NFL. The article is somewhat marred by its single minded focus on Chip Kelly, but it's nice to see people finally realize some of the glaringly obvious stupidity in conventional football play calling.
