LOL - Returning to glory has a price!
Nothing too exciting, but anything Denard is blog worthy. I noticed his hand was taped up; really taking a long time to recover, unless its precautionary. Not sure if the video is able to be embedded, maybe someone else can tackle that.
This week's scouting report, as promised, is on that one guy whose name is a future Chris Berman abomination: Paramus (NJ) Catholic cornerback Jabrill Peppers. (LINK)
Didn't see this posted anywhere but just want to make sure people know about this.
My personal favrorite is something I had no idea about. That popular picture with all the jerseys shows a Maize jersey in the 60s which never existed. However, Michigan wore Maize jerseys. Once. The canary disaster of 1928-
vs. Navy, Baltimore Stadium, Baltimore, MD
JERSEY: Navy insisted on wearing blue, so Michigan team
wore “bright yellow jerseys with blue numbers.
The team was said to look like canaries, and the uniforms
were put away after the 6-6 tie.”

We all hope / expect Green to make some impact his freshmen year, and ESPN's Luginbill agrees:
Simply put, Green is better than what Michigan has in the backfield right now and is a perfect fit for an offense that desperately wants to get back to power football and a heavy downhill run game. In addition to fitting that profile, we expect a minimal learning curve for him in the passing game and pass protection. Michigan will be better at quarterback with Devin Gardner, and Green might become Gardner's new best friend if he can take pressure off the passing game.
*edit: Corrected the spelling of Luginbill's name. Man, my vision is getting to be awful. h/t Ron Utah
It might be a bit early to think too much about 2015 for some people, but 2014 recruiting will be done before you know it.
