I met Scott Schaefer after a spring practice his hear as DC for RR. Very nice guy, very enthusiastic.
He was fired for GERG, and went to Syracuse as DC.
Buffalo Bills hired Syracuse head coach, Marrone, Schaefer hired to replace him this week.
Marrone has now hired Tyrone Wheatley as RB coach.
Not sure if this is thread worthy but I need help finding a solution for 8 tickets together for the Nebraska game next year. We made friends with some Nebraska fans in the Big House back in 2011 and then traveled to Lincoln this year to tailgate with them and experience Big Red Nation. It was a great time and they are great people!
I feel the need to return the favor and he is telling me that he wants to bring six friends with he and his wife. How do I go about finding 8 tickets together? Price really isn't a huge factor. Thanks in advance!
I was at the Outback Bowl, and I saw Countess, Bryant and Ringer. They were all walking around the field with their position groups with the same jersey as everyone else but with different pants. They all appeared to be walking around fine with no indication of an injury.
It doesn't mean much, but I was glad to see them moving around on the field with the team.
I'm also curious. I didn't notice the other two players who were out all year, Wormley and Poole, but I wasn't looking too closely. Did anyone else notice if Wormley and Poole were on the field?
Now with Lewan coming back, Brian and others have made some predictions for what the line might look like. My question for some of the more knowledgeable posters is what type of line and play calling you would expect from Al and why some players would project to right guard vs left guard and so on. I know that with Long Michigan ran a lot of zone to the left, while under Rich Rod, our guards and center needed to get out to the second level.
With Lewan returning and Kalis a mauler, does this mean that we should expect to see runs go left with a pulling guard or tackle? Or are runs expected to go right up the gut? I'm looking for more of an explanation for what Al's offense might look like now with Devin and his lineman and what players are fighting for which positions and why. Do they need to be quick/ strong/ agile? Thanks in advance for the feedback.
Bernie Kosar held a press conference yesterday in the wake of the Seau report in which he discussed his own problems with brain trauma, which have included ringing and buzzing in his head, insomnia, and slurred speech (anyone who has seen Bernie - who is the salt of the earth, AFAIK - do a football game has heard him sound like he was drunk). He said that used to have smelling salts with him on the field at times so that he could get through games and that he sometimes called running plays to give him time to get his head straight.
Anyway, what makes this story different from any others that I've seen is that Kosar reports that he's receiving successful treatment for his head injuries. Kosar and his doctor report that Bernie's PET scans are showing improvement thanks to treatment that increases blood flow to the brain, and Kosar says he feels twenty years younger. The doctor won't say much about the way the treatment is administered, though, and he sounds a little sketchy, but I thought this was at least an interesting claim (and it's likely to be a slow day on the board).
Warm and fuzzy article by Angelique Chengelis in the Detroit News this morning. With Denard's football career at Michigan finally over, Hoke finally reveals some of his thoughts on #16's lasting impact and legacy at Michigan.
Particularly good quote, IMO:
"There's people who want to criticize, which is easy," he said. "It's easy to be critical. There's people who obviously have no idea about the work he did and the love his teammates have for him, the love he had for them. Right, wrong or indifferent, that's where I see his legacy, being a guy who embraced Michigan and totally became engrossed in what Michigan is all about.
