This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.
Things on the board have been less than perfect recently, so here's something to take your mind off things! I had the priviledge to photograph a Slippery Rock football game back in September during Michigan's bye-week (yeah, these are 4 months old, but I just recently got a new computer/time/patience to go through them). I know a lot of you have never actually seen a Slippery Rock game so I thought I'd share some photos with you. I would encourage all Michigan fans to make the trip to see a game at least once. It's a lot of fun! And only a 4 hour drive from Ann Arbor. You may remember some of these photos from a story the Daily ran in October. Here's my complete album.
Photos are below in this thread, here's a link to the complete thing:
(I don't have a website, only a facebook page. The website in my watermark is my friend's website that I shoot for during Airshow season). In case the photos don't show up, here's a link to my page, which I'll be posting Michigan hockey, basketball, women's basketball, field hockey, and probably a couple other sports soon(ish) on:
Slippery Rock lost 49-56, unfortunately. It was still a fun time. I know a few people who didn't think Slippery Rock was actually real. See for yourself!
Per Dr. Saturday, Lane Kiffin pulled the scholarship of Kylie Fitts, a four-star DE in the recruiting class of 2013 who was scheduled to enroll early last week. Evidently he gave the kid three days' notice. Classy move.
I know there has been lots of stink made about coaches withdrawing scholarships that were promised, but has anyone heard of one revoked so close to the enrollment date?
In an attempt to up morale on the board, it sounds like 2013 TE Durham Smythe will be visiting on the 25th of January according to Rivals and ESPN. ESPN actually has us in his final 3 visits with Stanford and Oregon.
This brings up the question: will Funchess possibly be moving to WR? Or does this provide Borges with more jumbo TE sets?
Kid has an impressive offer list with Miami (YTM), Florida, Georgia, Texas, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Stanford and Oregon having offered.
He is a 3-star on Rivals and a 4-star on both ESPN and Scout.
Ace did an interview with him last February: http://mgoblog.com/diaries/interview-durham-smythe
Reon Dawson has set his decision date to Wednesday. Choosing between the Illini and Michigan
ESPN with the basic info, just going to call each coaching staff and let them know.
Already down by 3; do you think Tom Brady and the Pats win and he surpasses the 16 win postseason record? He is currently tied with Montana.
We have 25 open right now and 25 commitments. The coaches can thank Mike Jones for his time with the program, but where would we find 2 more schollies if the class potentially gets up to 28? They aren't gonna "suggest" football isn't for them after working their asses off, are they?
