maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
My wife gave birth to our son Saturday at 5:12 p.m. He was 7 pounds 2 ounces, and 19 inches long. His measurables were already sent to Coach Hoke, and Coach Hoke said to work on his arm length, and a scholarship would be waiting. (The Doctor thought this was funny, my wife being a Notre Dame grad was none too amused)
Shortly after this picture, I happened to put on a very important article of clothing. Hail to the victors!
After a week of whiffing on recruits and looking over our current OL depth and incoming recruits, the void at C is looking more and more like a huge issue. We should be fine this year with Khoury and Miller, but after that, we will be seriously hurting for depth at this very crucial position. Losing guys like Pace to injury and Stacey to a decommitment could really hurt down the road. My question here is, do any of our current OL commits have a chance of being a possibility for the C position down the road? It is pretty clear that Kalis is set to be a LG for 3-4 years and Braden is looking like a T, as would Diamond if he were to commit. I know Magnuson played all 5 positions at the Army game, but I didn't really see a breakdown of how well he played them, especially center. Also, is Blake Bars definitely a RT or G down the line, or at 6'5" could he possibly be a fill in for center as well? Since his commitment, I haven't heard much about him. Any thoughts or insight on Bars or Magnuson playing C?
TTB Andrew put up an interview this morning with 2013 tight end Adam Breneman. He wants to be the next Rob Gronkowski . . . which is a pretty awesome goal.
WolverineNation uploaded a video of the Pee Wee (NTPW) team that Devin Funchess, Terry Richardson, James Ross and Royce Jenkins-Stone played on. It has Ross, Richardson and Jenkin's Stone talking and joking about their past Pee Wee team.
I personally think it's awesome that we have 4 guys coming to play for us who have played together for so long.
Over on one of the Scout boards, I just saw that you can sign up to receive NSD text updates for Michigan. Just text UMSIGN to 51234. I just did it myself and it looks like they'll send you a text for every LOI received.
For those following the changing landscape that is college athletics, the Big XII Conference will be announcing their college football schedule on Wednesday, February 1st.
So far the Big Ten, PAC-12, and SEC have announced their conference schedules, with little to no drama. The ACC teams know who they will play - they just don't know when.
Commissioner Chuck Neinas announced he expects West Virginia to play in the Big XII in 2012 (read: WVU will be listed on the Big XII Conference schedule). Problem? The Big East will likely include West Virginia on their schedules, which will likely be released in late February/early March.
Commissioner Neinas's statements can be found here.
EDIT: The Big XII has released their schedule with ten teams to their television networks, per their contracts, but will not release their schedule until next week at the earliest, partly due to NSD and partly due to the WVU fiasco. More information can be found here.
