"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
I've been busy so I haven't been promoting the contest as much this year. So, here's a quick reminder to enter the contest today before football kicks off.

As the name would suggest, this thread is for your season record predictions for 2012. Feel free to predict the record for other teams besides Michigan.
Notre Dame 6-6 (or 7-5, I haven't decided yet)
Yeah, I'll drink that Kool-Aid.
Pretty cool graphic, and Michigan ranks near the top. OSU , PSU .... not so good.
Also, listen to the audio... lots of UM talk with Herbstreit.

Here we go!
The start of the 2012 football season and with that come a few changes that are in place for better safety of the players. What do you think? Are these changes for better play or a chance to cause controversy?
What jumps out to me on the the helmut rule is what stops the opposing team from intentionally popping a helmut off a playmaker to get him out of the game for a play to disrupt the momentum?
What else do you see?
I laughed till it hurt. God I love SBNation sometimes. Gotta let em load, though.
First of all, I would give anything to be able to be trained by Barwis regularly. I think the guy is incredible. However, just reading through the Dline preview from Brian and some of the other previews, what stands out is how many guys have shed bad weight (e.g. BWC) and how many others have been effectively putting on good weight. This starts with the S&C philosphy and approach in addition to diet which is possibly even a bigger factor.
Wellman and Barwis are both very talented but it could be said Wellman has been more effective during his limited time at Michigan in getting guys into playing shape. I can't imagine it is just because we shifted from heavy emphasis on Olympic lifts, it has to be more than that. Does anyone have any insight on this part of our program? Have we also changed our approach to diet as well? Is is simply better participation? Maybe it is just the effect of multiple years in the program finally creating change. Would appreciate some inside info. Thanks.
