So by almost any estimation the defense and specifically the LB's have done very well this year and much better than expected. With that being said we return a host of good to pretty good and still developing LB's. I cant remember a LB group coming in that has this much hype and talent. The question then becomes who redshirts??
Royce - 4 star and should be enrolling early I thought
Bolden - 4 star
Ross - 4 star
Ringer - 3 star but lost out on the 4th because of injury this year.
I guess depending on how Ringers knee heals he would be the obvious, but I would think there will be more. Demens stays and the coaches love Morgan. Jake Ryan has played well especially against the run, and it has been stated on this board mutiple times that Mattison loves Poole he just needed to get bigger. Hawthorne has been great in spots and would figure in somewhere, and lets not forget Cam Gordon was a penciled in starter to most before the injury. Evans is supposed to be a 6th year qualifier as well, with Mike Jones and I. Bell figuring to be the odd ones out. Dont get me wrong this is exactly the problem that we need to have with talent overload and all, but just curious how the staff plans to balance this one out.
A true Legend. I'd greatly appreciate it if you signed. It's for a great cause for a great man/player.
Here is the NY Times recent story about him being diagnosed with Alzheimer's
Is it me or is Chantel Jennings like 5,000 times of a better reporter, at least on video and not for her looks, than Mike Rothstein?
I love having dedicated M reporters at ESPN and its fun to watch youger reporters get experience, but Rothstein stutters and often confuses his words. He is so akward that it sometimes actually bothers me. So much so that I had to create a topic about this stupid topic.
Highlighted in this week's somewhat abbreviated edition:
- Ole Miss/Houston Nutt
- Ron Zook
- Texas A&M
Pretty much what the title says - anyone hear anything about Jordan Diamond recently, or have an idea why the vibe between he and Michigan seems to have cooled off lately? He really seemed to be a good fit and a likely commit, but for reasons unknown to me, there has been a lowering of interest, either by Jordan or U-M.
Anyone hear any buzz about Jordan that might shed some light on this?
Ohio (the MAC one) vs. Bowling Green
Miami (the Ohio one) vs. Western Michigan
Take your pick. There's also "The X Factor" on FOX right now.
