I have to say that I was rather shocked to hear the news of K. Jones not being part of the team the last couple of days. While we knew T. Jones and Pace were injured hearing they were done and that Talbott was soon to follow was rather jarring as well.
My question to the Mgocommunity is that how is any of this a shock in the age of facebook, twitter etc? I follow this blog religously and my friend keeps me updated from Scout. How does this stay secret as much as these guys are stalked? I come on here and find out guys are tracking the movements of 16yr olds, but among thousands of students/insiders/staff members/beat writers/teammates etc. we can't figure out a current student can barely walk and will never play again? A guy is kicked off the team and info and rumors are all over the place with nothing concrete.
I'm not asking people to pry further into these kids lives, but I'm just shocked things are able to stay quiet in this day and age and wonder if other people are as surprised. Seems like guys would have this posted much faster. If you saw C. Pace in class and asked him how it is going with rehab and he said he was done. I would imagine that guy would have it posted asap and everyone would know that within hours. I don't even really understand why Hoke doesn't get that info out himself( I understand why maybe the K. Jones situation would not be handled) but why not say that guys are put on medical redshirt?. Why the secrecy surrounding that?
Sorry, tried to get this question answered on MLive but they were too busy throwing flaming marshmallows at 9 year-old MSU trolls.
Simple question: When does the men's FB team open training camp, and are there ever any open scrimmages?
I'm in the market for a new durable, easy set-up Michigan tent/ shade for tailgating. Obvioulsy there are several options online, but wanted to get some opinions on what works for others. I know that the EZ-up's are nice, but I haven't found any of that particular brand with the "M" logo.
Also, is there anyone out there that has this sideline shade? Is it big enough to walk under, or is it more for sitting?http://www.tailgaterzone.com/michigan-wolverines-sideline-shade.html
So just wanted to get everyones take on the recent roster moves...
We have Stonum.. kinda.
We have lost 2 guys at our thinnest positions.
We have lost one of my favorite recruits from last year.
So, as it stands...
When the 2012 class marches onto campus next year, assuming they redshirt, there will be 5 OL on scholarship in front of them.
4 wide receivers (including slots)
3 interior defensive linemen
4 Exterior defensive linemen
6 or so linebackers, only 2 of which I am hopeful for or positive they can contribute.
How does this change Hokes focus on maybe only getting 1 DT in this class? (assuming Godin rolls into the 3Tech DT)
At this point it seems essential to land a WR, and also at least 2 interior DTs. We can wait for a center for next year, but I would love to get a good center prospect on the board as well.
I know a few people have expressed concern over one of the recruits saying that the Michigan coaches told him they will only be taking one receiver. As of right now I don't believe that's the case. I believe they will take two. That can change with other numbers and other commitments, but as of now I think they would take two.
Looks like we are sitting nicly at nuymber 2 class at this point and with some reevaluations of players later on into next season I hope to keep us in the top 5...We be great for Hoke and staff.
