coaches say you can't, so don't sign a loi
Subject says it all. I wonder how close this will end up being.
I was just informed by a long time Wisconsin fan that Wisconsin puts the Michigan football game in front of all others, we are their biggest rival. While there is a natural rivalry with Minnesota, they want to beat Michigan even worse. Interestingly enough, I had no idea that was the case. When pressed for the reason, it was because we were so arrogant for so many years when we were consistently beating them. My reply that "Michigan likes to beat Wisconsin but we have more important rivals that we focus on" may have been a poor choice of wording that somewhat validated the person's point. However, I still am not sure I really believed the premise beyond a single person's beliefs. Has anyone on the board heard this before? Is this true?
Shane Morris has yet to get a 5th star, and some targets have gone up/done. I am pretty confident though that Michigan's entire class could easily be on here, which says a lot on how good this class could be. This class will be epic!
Shane and Dymonte have been recruiting ninjas!
Kevin Koger, TE, Michigan -- Koger was lost for much of the past three seasons in a Michigan offense that had little use for a tight end, but he displayed NFL ability in a big way. Koger was a dominant blocker all practice long, stopping opponents dead in their tracks. He made a terrific 25-yard reception down the seam in scrimmage, displaying natural pass-catching skills. Koger lacks the foot speed to be a true downfield threat, but at a position that's thin on talent in April's draft, he could be the biggest sleeper of them all.

Is MGoBlog asleep this morning? It's been 15 minutes since this information's been released, and still no thread. Here goes. First a couple of links (ticket sale date information, and press release).
Starting in late January, the University of Michigan Athletic Ticket Office will begin taking orders for tickets to the 2012 season opener against defending national champion Alabama. The Cowboys Classic game will be played Saturday night, Sept. 1, at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Michigan will use a phased approach for ordering tickets to the game based on priority points earned from donors and season ticket holders' overall investment in Michigan Athletics. Since seating is limited and price levels will sell out, individuals are encouraged to purchase tickets early in their eligibility period to ensure the best seating based on their priority level. Ticket Prices: Michigan's allotment of nearly 25,000 tickets includes three price levels that will be available while quantities last: $285, $175 and $125.
In addition, students can only purchase one ticket as part of the away game packages starting in April. Specific dates are included in the first link. General public sale starts on Feb. 29. Good luck all.
