This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.
Local paper finally coming through with some useful information.
And, because this is mandatory...
Buffalo wild wing bowl preview. Not much new just that Morris might start over Gardner. Very emotional speech by Lewan. Lets hope for a big win over Holy Cross followed by a win vs KSU. Hope you enjoy. GO BLUE!!
Accroding to Chris Spielman, Hoke and his staff should do a better job of developing the talents that they recruit. A point that I completely agree with. UM players are not getting materially better.
Edit: Spielman did not say "poor job" as initially posted.
As it seems that Devin is injured and it's looking more and more likely that Shane will start in the BWW Bowl, it got me to think about how the staff didn't recruit a QB in the 2012 class.
If I remember correctly, even though we put out a couple of offers, the only QBs that it seemed that we were really heavily pursuing were Zeke Pike and Gunnar Kiel. We finished second for Pike (which seems like a good thing now) and Kiel seemed to cool on Michigan after Shane committed. I don't remember us going after anyone else or being close to signing anyone else. Am I missing anything? Did the staff just stop looking in that class after Shane committed?
It seemed like a bad decision then and is worse now given that Shane had to burn his RS and that our BWW QB lineup is a true FR backed up by a walk-on (Cleary) backed up by either another walk-on (Swieca) or a guy that just started practicing (Bellomy).
Welp, looks like it's time for Shane. Hope he's ready.
My interpretations of Hokespeak tell me that "if game was played today" is usually code for this player will be the starter.
Hoke at BWW welcome presser says Gardner saw doctor Friday. If had to play today...Shane Morris the starter— angelique (@chengelis) December 23, 2013
Hoke also said Gibbons will not make the trip and has a family issue at home in Florida
Thank you for all you did for this program, Brendan. A BCS bowl win and being THE THREAT. Brunette girls forever.
The 4* Detroit Country Day product has now joined forces with GERG Davis after the meltdown of the Rutgers recruiting class. Maybe he likes short passes, I have no idea. His big tweet was a bit strange "Those who are with me will be champions!", not quite as catchy as the original. The full story and tweet grab at BHGP.
