Mike Lantry, 1972
So glad MGoBlog is back. It wasn't fun having to do actual work today.
Along with their Ohio rankings coming out, Rivals also continued their countdown of their top preseason 120 teams, with Michigan coming in at No. 36. They give their season preview, along with the first of many two deeps we will see in the next couple months.
The biggest discrepancy for me, at least, came with the omission of Courtney Avery.
Glad that mgoblog is back and running. I actually got some work done today. Anyways Rivals released their rankings for the state of Ohio.
Obviously #1 is Kyle Kalis
#11 Joe Bolden
#14 Tom Strobel
#16 Jarrod Wilson
#17 Pharaoh Brown
#22 Caleb Stacey
#25 Kaleb Ringer
#28 AJ Williams
#29 Allen Gant
#5 Adolphus Washington
#7 Dwayne Stanford
#8 Brionte Dunn
#21 Chris Wormley
#39 Alden Hill
So this isn't a question of who you expect to have a breakout year, or who M needs to have, have a breakout year to be successful, but just, who on the roster, maybe an under the radar player, do you want to see most have a breakout year?
For Me it's Je'ron Stokes. I loved the kids highlight tape coming out of high school. I loved how he and his family defended his words during the Freep Jihad. I also believe, that if everything can click for this kid, with his skill set, he could be a major contributor in the new offense.
The offseason sucks as we all know, so, go at it, discuss, and waste some time at work on a Thursday, and as always Go Blue!
Looks like the NCAA wants bloodshed!
There are very few words to describe this picture. I know it's off-topic but I just had to post it.

Although there is too much sparty mention here, Wojo discusses the opportunity presented by the recent OSU trouble. Discussing the Kalis commitment: "Of course, this is just one verbal agreement from one kid. But it's especially notable because he originally committed to the Buckeyes, until Jim Tressel was busted for serial lying and replaced by Luke Fickell."
