During his mini-draft slide, Johnny Football apparently got bored waiting around the Green Room, and was talking to the Cleveland QB Coach. According to Coach Loggains:
“We’re sitting there and they keep showing Johnny on TV and Johnny and I are texting and he shoots me a text and he says, ‘I wish you guys would come get me. Hurry up and draft me because I want to be there. I want to wreck this league together.’ “When I got that text, I forwarded it to the owner and to the head coach [Mike Pettine]. I’m like ‘this guy wants to be here. He wants to be part of it.’ As soon as that happened, Mr. Haslam said, ‘pull the trigger. We’re trading up to go get this guy.”’
Is this the first time someone has been excited to go to Ohio?
I was looking through the current HTTV backers and was surprised by some of what I saw:
Was wondering if anyone else found any interesting supports as of yet.

Combo athlete Jake Pickard lines up as a tight end and a weakside defensive end for his high school team and does so well enough that colleges have offered him at both positions. Pickard has been in contact with Michigan for quite some time and the Wolverine coaching staff likes what he does on the offensive side of the ball.
Pickard's father is close personal friends with Brady Hoke and that relationship has kept Jake on the radar of the coaching staff for a while.
Yesterday, cornerbacks coach Roy Manning stopped in to see Jake at his high school and told him that the coaches are still monitoring what he's doing and they'd like to see him come to their camp this summer and perform in person. Pickard also said that the coaches are fond of his frame and the potential body type that he could achieve as a tight end.
Pickard told me that he'd like to attend the Michigan camp but he's not sure he'll be able to do that yet. If he does, look for him to be one of the players watched closely by the coaches to see if he's worthy of an offer.
14. The Westerlands/House Lannister= MICHIGAN
They are the champions of the west. They are leaders and legends. They have too much money, with no idea on what to do with it. They have good people and bad people among them, but ultimately, both U of M and the Lannisters are in a lot of trouble. Lately, things have NOT been going too well for either of the two. Being embarrassed by practically every other faction (B1G team) and being upstaged by the Tyrells (MSU) seems to have taken its toll, and its apparent that the end of their once-great empires will soon be upon them. Granted, there are a few favorites in the bunch, but its safe to say that not everyone is sad to see these guys go.
This is actually a fair assessment of Michigan football at the moment. Hopefully our "apparent end" is not happening any time soon.

Leaving this here for the board's perusal.
