Some of these pictures are pretty funny, and the feature also includes our own Brady Hoke:
I just saw this on Twitter. I miss college.
Congrats to Taylor Lewan for being named to another All-America first team, this time AP. From mgoblue.com release:
University of Michigan football senior/junior offensive tackle Taylor Lewan (Scottsdale, Ariz./Chaparral) was named today (Tuesday, Dec. 11) to the 2012 Associated Press All-America first team.
Lewan continues to receive accolades for his play in 2012. The Big Ten Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year and an All-Big Ten first team choice by the league's coaches and media, Lewan also was named to the All-America first team by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, ESPN.com and Athlon Sports and second team by CBSSports.com.
See this AP page for the full list.
All of those empty seats we saw in a large number of non-Big House games this year were no mirage. College football attendance is at its lowest levels since 2003. It also seems that our students are not alone with respect to their attendance "issues" of the last few years.
I also thought this piece was relevant in view of yesterday's PSD increases noted on an Mgoboard thread.
Five of the six BCS conferences reported attendance decreases, and per al.comreporter Jon Solomon, the only exception -- the Pac-12 -- was an exception only because Cal left its temporary limited-capacity stadium setup in 2011 for its newly renovated Memorial Stadium.
Note - this was not OT because BIG football was discussed.
I guess this is on the up and up, but it seems strange unless Ark AD Jeff Long and Bret have known each other for a while. I am not sure on that one. I can't imagine Hoke sending a similar note or even considering that fact he should send a note to an AD in a different conference who has fired a coach. FWIW, Long mentioned the note when he annouced Bielema as the HC so it clearly had an impact on him getting a new job.
Is there any updates that might not have made the 2013 recruiting board? Dymonte Thomas, I have seen reports that he is infact enrolling early but the board suggest otherwise. Can we get an update, Ace? Magnus? anybody?
