well that's just, like, your opinion, man

Hey there, been awhile. Hiatus over. We're back on track, once a week.
I think I spent about 10% of this week's time drawing it, another 20% coloring it digitally, and used up all the rest coming up with clever things for the dog to say.
Tomorrow's Friday Fun will probably be the simple and silly variety. Any requests?
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every week here at MGoBlog and on its official home page. Also, don't forget to check out the Friday Fun, my weekly single panel comic based on trending Michigan events, available on Twitter and the home page every Friday.
Steve Lorenz: Looks like Jabrill Peppers is swinging for the fences going after five-star RB Leonard Fournette.
According to Steve Lorenz:

@justcoverblog No reason not to try to build on the momentum. Nothing to lose.— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) May 30, 2013
@justcoverblog It's the exact strategy Michigan should be taking right now.— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) May 30, 2013
For those who are not familiar with Fournette, he's the consensus top RB in the 2014 class, and the number one player in the nation according to 247's Composite Rankings.
The general consesus in the recruiting world is that Fournette is heavily favoring Alabama and LSU. I'd be shocked if he went anywhere other than those two schools, and even very surprised if we are able to get a visit. However, we have a lot of momentum, and if we can get him on campus anything can happen.
Today, 134 years ago at White Stockings Park in Chicago, IL, Michigan played their first football game. Or "foot ball game" against Racine, winning 1-0 on a touch-down and goal kick.
Irving Kane Pond (first in middle row) scored the first touch-down for Michigan.
The story which never seems to end is back in the news. The Paterno family and certain other trustees are suing the NCAA over the Freeh report, etc. What is interesting is that Penn State itself is not part of the suit. Bob Costas was to have had a segment on the suit last night, but I didn't see it.
The suit is designed "to redress the NCAA's 100 percent adoption of the Freeh Report and imposition of a binding consent decree against Penn State University. The reality is that consent decree was imposed through coercion and threats behind the scenes and there was no ability for anyone to get redress," Sollers told Costas.
Note: I assume this is not OT as it is B1G-related.
Without oversimplifying Robinson’s role in Jacksonville, that is what the Jaguars have to work with in their rookie: He’s about as raw as possible as a pass catcher (Robinson himself admitted at the combine that he has trouble finding the ball downfield) and he’ll force offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch to draw up plays where he is the primary target, but the payoff might be worth it because of how bad Robinson can make defenses look.I think in the short term they should line him up primarily at RB so he can get comfortable with NFL speed and blocking. Hopefully his arm is fully healed because he could definitely moonlight at QB and make defenses pay if they don't respect his throwing ability. http://nfl.si.com/2013/05/29/jags-must-balance-denard-robinsons-athletic...
