"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."
BRAND NEW CHARLIE
When we last left our story, Charlie Blockham awoke to the sounds of
his mother telling him to get ready for school. She also pointed out his hair,
which has grown to monumental proportions in the two months since the
strip has began. What's a full-headed boy to do?

TTB Andrew interviewed Ben Braden a few days ago. Braden says he's up to 6'7", 325 lbs. and not planning on redshirting.
2013 safety Marcus McWilson from Youngstown (OH) Cardinal Mooney committed to Nebraska today. Top 20ish Ohio player (Rivals #142 player overall) that had didn't have a Michigan offer. Still plenty of time to Signing Day but interesting that another top Ohio player leaves the state for now. Urban Liar has adopted a completely different strategy from Tressel by neglecting top 250 talent from Ohio for other elite players nationally instead of locking up the home state.

Alex Kozan down to two: 247Sports has learned that 2012 offensive lineman Alex Kozan has narrowed his search to ... bit.ly/A7UGI1
This is paywalled, but you can deduce from the non-blocked member comments that UM is one of the final two. Judging from comments on the Hawkeyes board, Auburn, and not Iowa, is the other remaining school at which Kozan may
complete his visionquest play football.
Has Michigan 7th in his 2012 AP Top Ten Projection. http://blog.philsteele.com/2012/01/30/2012-preseason-ap-top-10-projection/
7 Michigan-The Wolverines were one of the biggest surprises in college football last year winning 11 games and a BCS Bowl under first-year HC Brady Hoke. This year they return 7 starters on offense led by QB Denard Robinson and RB Toussaint who should be more comfortable in the 2nd-year of the new offense. UM also return 7 starters from a defense that allowed just 17.4 ppg (#6) which was nearly an 18 ppg improvement from 2010! Michigan finished #12 in the final AP poll and figure to be the favorites to win the Big Ten this year.
He also posted some Vegas odds to win the 2012 BCS National Championship. Michigan is best in the Big Ten at 22/1, Neb 35/1, Wisc 40/1, Iowa and MSU at 75/1. http://blog.philsteele.com/2012/02/14/odds-to-win-2012-13-bcs-national-championship/
