well that's just, like, your opinion, man
...days until Lamarr Woodley watches the next great Michigan defense destroy Hawaii.
Which means we are only...
...Saturdays away from seeing Tyrone Wheatley Jr. live up to the hype! Go Blue!
Of course I'd put Michigan #1 here:
Rating of 123.72 which is the 99th percentile. Due for another bump?
Will do a prep year at Suffield Academy in Suffield, CT according to his twitter.
...(57) days until Maynard Morrison (wherever he may be, if you believe in the afterlife) watches Jim and his staff lead this team to a dominating win against Hawaii.
Maynard primarily played fullback and center (and apparently linebacker) from 1929 to 1931. Harry Kipke was his coach and, according to him, Maynard was the fastest linebacker he had ever seen (see Wikipedia link). In 1931, Maynard was chosen as a first team All-American for the center position and helped lead the Wolverines to a Big Ten Championship.
The picture on his Wikipedia page does not show him in the 57 jersey, but everywhere else I have seen, that is the number listed by his name.
Per Brendan Quinn's Twitter timeline, Warde Manuel was on The Michigan Insider this morning talking about the ND series renewal. I'm sure the audio will be available in Podcast form soon, but for now some highlights:
- Negotiations were underway shortly before he arrived, started by Harbaugh and Kelly
- Says he's "hopeful" they can change the imbalance of the MSU and OSU games
- Says ND should be "consistently on the schedule. Maybe not every year..."
The last point makes me the most hopeful after the news broke yesterday (officially).
I'm really excited about our future series against Texas, Oklahoma, UCLA, and others and would really hate to see any/all of them canceled for the sake of playing ND. I'm glad to see ND back on the schedule, but we need some variety when it comes to playing strong non-conference opponents. I know if we schedule ND in any given year that's likely to be the only interesting non-conference game we play that year with the move to 9 Big Ten games.
