Detroit Free Press reporter Mark Snyder just tweeted this:
Hoke on Alabama radio: Gerald Ford's No. 48 jersey will be worn by a UM player this year to honor him... No. 1 in "near future" not this yr
That's a retired jersey number.
UPDATE: Bennie Oosterbaan (#47) and Ron Kramer (#87) will also become Legends this fall. Click here for more details in a more recent thread.
Andrew interviewed incoming freshman defensive end Chris Wormley and posted it this morning. Last time I posted a link to an interview, I was accused of "overselling" it, so this time I won't do that. Enjoy.
Rivals Article talks about our new LS. While the article/commentary is about what you'd expect in a glowing bio, and I'm loathe to bring up the topic again, I'm petty enough to take the opportunity to suggest that we should all relax a bit. Taking a step back, let's remember that recruting is not an exact science, and let's celebrate with a kid who, based on the article, has worked hard and seems to be the type of student-athlete we can be proud to consider a Michigan Man.
Yes, I'm still scratching my head on it, but I'm happy that we've added a bright, diligent young man, and I'm more than happy for him.

From The Big Lead, some fine work by noted Michigan fans Red Hot Chili Peppers at their concert in Columbus when they sang the Victors to end their show.
Reminds me of when Michigan grad Scott Steiner clowned Ohio on WCW Nitro in Columbus.
First of all, we have a 'Long Snappers' user tag at mgoblog, and that is just fantastic.
Second of all, Alabama offered a scholarship to Cole Mazza, a long snapper out of Bakersfield, CA. And while most of us loathe the Saban, if he's willing to add a long snapper to a class that is supposed to be relatively small for Saban standards, there may be some traction to this idea. So let's all take a deep breath and wait and see how Scott Sypniewski plays out for us, ehh?
