I don't create a lot of content, but with all the OSU hate I thought it would nice to share something positive before the season gets started and we get back to the hatred. Eddie George has always been one of the few Buckeye's I can say that I was honestly a fan of (at least once he left OSU), not just for how he played the game, but for how he was as a person and this just confirms it. George and Gardner have become close friends and George apparently has had a number of conversations with Gardner about not just football, but about life. Cool story. You can find the video on the front page of mgoblue.com.
For those in need of a cool video, Jacob Karam, QB of the Memphis Tigers made headlines last week for playing a heart warming duet with, St. Jude's patient Breanna, a twelve year old with leukemia.
After that video made its rounds, Karam showed his piano talents went way further on a local radio station where callers made requests to see what he could play... 14 minutes and he didn't get stumped once.
In some horrible news Jonas Mouton has suffered a torn ACL and will likely miss the entire 2013 NFL season. Mouton also missed the entire 2011 season after a shoulder injury.
Hope him all the best in his recovery, and he can get back to contributing to the Chargers.
Video within article shows new uniforms. Not terrible.
Broncos are bringing back the brown
This is my first time posting, and I know there have been way too many OSU posts over the past 7-ish days, but this is just too good to pass up. It's Friday, enjoy a laugh or two.
I recently moved from Nashville back up to west MI, but I would listen in on Clay Travis' radio show once in a while. Mostly when something crazy happened in the world of sport, as his takes on things can be pretty comical. He's certainly entertaining if you can get past his obvious SEC homerism.
EDIT - Clay Travis is part of the 3 Hour Lunch radio show on 104.5 in Nashville, TN
So I figured with the overwhelming fixation on Schroedinger's RB, and this article from Rivals, it's a good time to try to project our recruiting class this year.
Per Rivals, who either projects us or LSU as the year's top class:
What Mike Farrell says: "I think Michigan jumped off to a better start last year, but I think I am more impressed this year. The quality of player is about the same, so what I mean by more impressed is that Michigan is more diversified and it is also expanding its footprint. It is getting into some new areas and getting kids. Having a player like Jabrill Peppers on board is huge because of what he brings to the table. I think they have a really good shot at getting both of the top players in the country with Da'Shawn Hand showing serious interest."
What the numbers say: If Michigan can land Hand and continue to round out a solid class around him then it would have the recruit average as well as the bonus points to push to No. 1. As it stands right now, the projections show that the Wolverines will be in for a fight with Ohio State for the top slot in the Big Ten conference. The data indicates that the team should come close to surpassing its total points from last season when it finished No. 5 with 2,661. It doesn't need much more than that to claim a national title in recruiting this year. Set the floor at No. 5 with a ceiling of knocking Alabama off the mountain.
So I'll start this month's WHO DO WE GETTT!!!? thread by structuring it this way - give me a list of 7 commits, which will put us at 21. Order that list by who is most likely to sign on the dotted line, not by who is the most wanted. Also, where do we finish in terms of overall recruiting class. (The answer is 4) My list:
1. Malik McDowell
2. De'Shawn Hand
3. Juju Smith
4. Montae Nicolson
5. Kalen Ballage
6. Leonard Fournette
7. Parrker Westphal
