Mike Lantry, 1972
The Sportsnation Tradition Poll Final on Facebook has been running for a few days but has gotten very little attention until recently. The Sportsnation Facebook page put it on the mainpage again and the MFFF (Michigan Football Facebook Fanpage) finally posted about it this afternoon but the vote tally is still only around 20,000. With the voting so low it's anybodies to win, though FSU currently leads 61% to 39%. I for one would hate to see FSU win another tradition poll Michigan clearly should win after the Best Helmet fiasco. VBOD!

I have a question for those that follow the recruiting rankings closely year in and year out.
How drastically can a ranking change from before high school football starts, throughout the season, and then after the season?
For example ... by looking at the rankings on Scout it appears they currently have Magnuson ranked at 16, Bars at 38, Ojemudia at 22 and and Standifer at 26. These are all rankings that ... based on camping news.... could be vastly underrated. Does it ever happen where a player starts the season ranked 16 at OT and then moves up to 5 at OT during or after the season?
Kalis just committed to the good guys per Scout!

These are the latest games I have up:
2003 Illinois (Won 56-14). Chris Perry runs for 3 TD's. Tons of running in this game the week after the comback at Minnesota. Breaston's punt return for a TD also included.
2000 Indiana (Won 58-0). Henson, Terrell, A-Train have a huge day. This Indiana team, led by Antwan Randle-El was kind of like our 2010 team. Averaged 30 points on offense a game but 38 points on defense a game. Somehow our very young defense managed to shut them out.
1986 Ohio State (Won 26-24). Jim Harbaugh's guaranteed victory. Harbaugh throws for 261 yards. Jamie Morris runs for 216 yards. This victory makes Bo the winningest coach in school history. Plus a neat Rocky intro.
It appears Adam "Pacman" Jones is up to his old antics once again. I'm sure glad the Lions steered clear of this guy when he was available.
Arrested after a bar incident overnight, Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones said on Twitter Sunday that he wasn't drunk.
“I have a right to my opinion and the bad part I don't drunk,” he tweeted @realpacman24
Damn.... good thing he don't drunk!!! If he was out drunking we would all be in trouble.
Another quote from his twitter account:
REALPACMAN24 ADAm Pacman Jones
It's amazing Rich Rod was able to keep this guy out of trouble at West Virginia.
Evidenced by his booking photo: Not even a neck brace will slow this man down when he is out at the club.
With more new Michigan commits, we're hitting the front page after a hiatus of a couple weeks. Action since last rankings:
7-5-11 Penn State loses commitment from Jarron Jones.
7-6-11 Minnesota gains commitment from Isaac Hayes.
7-7-11 Minnesota gains commitment from Dominic Twitty. Iowa gains commitment from Jaleel Johnson.
7-8-11 Michigan gains commitment from Jarrod Wilson.
