Found an interesting blog article about the 'monumental task before Devin Gardner'. Was particularly amused to see the comment on extrapolating last season's performance in light of the argument in favor of Gallon receiving the #1 jersey and the enormous expectations many of us here have for Devin this year.
How close do you think Devin will come to his sky-high potential? What factors do you think will have the biggest impact on his success?
This recent tweet by Land-Grant Holy Land purports to show a new IU football helmet. Could this be real? If so, wow.
As helmets go, those are outrageous. As candycanes go, those look delicious.
Jim Kelly has been diagnosed with cancer of the jaw.

Speedy recovery Mr. Kelly...
IMO, he is a must-have if for no reason other than this:
For my commitment day, I just want to have it at my school. I'm not going to have three hats. I'm going to have one hat. I'm gonna call the coaches the night before. Tell them what school I'm going to and that's it.I'd love to know who made the M. Jackson statement

Sam Webb does a very nice ARTICLE on Jabrill Peppers's background. Many of the general points are known (esp. re: Peppers's dad), but a very worthwhile read all the same. He discusses his commitment freestyle, as well as several deeper matters.
My favorite observation from Peppers re: Michigan's football program?
Michigan provided an ideal mix of all of those attributes, but there was one specific trait that allowed the Wolverines to distinguish themselves tangibly from their opposition. The ability of the players and coaches to connect with Peppers during his early April visit to Ann Arbor was summed up in one memorable statement.
"Real recognizes real," Peppers said afterward.
