that is nice bonus change
This probably isn't a big surprise or disappointment to many MGoBloggers, but QB recruit Bennie Coney has commited to the U of Cincinnati according to ESPN and 24/7 Sports. I know the recruitment had cooled in recent months but he is now off the board. Seems like a pretty good get for UC and I hope things work out for Coney. With Shane Morris in the fold for 2013, the chances of taking a QB in this class seem to be getting pretty slim. I'm sure TomVH will let me know if I'm wrong, in cryptic Tom-ese that is.
Ohio State commit Bri'onte Dunn was in Ann Arbor yesterday for the BBQ. I caught up with his father to talk about how it went and if it helped Michigan at all. Here's what he had to say.
He said it made him more comfortable and that he's liking [Michigan] more and more. Kyle Kalis and him talk to each other, too [Kalis was also at the BBQ]. The [Michigan] coaches told him that there's playing time there and that he could be the man.
As you can see by what he said this was a success for Michigan. It seems like they're chipping away and making more and more progress. With football starting up his dad doesn't think that he'll decide anything one way or the other any time soon. It's clear though that Michigan is doing an excellent job.
Per ESPN, the Dolphins have placed Jake Long on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, as he is recovering from an offseason surgery (the article is about Brandon Marshall, which, great story... the second-to-last paragraph mentions Long being on the PUP list). Sparano seems optimistic about Long being ready for their week 1 game against the Pats. Hopefully he continues smoothly in his rehab and is ready to protect Henne's backside this season!
Randy Moss retires per ESPN Breaking News.

Not a confirmation or anything, but it's nice to know that things seem to be leaning in that direction. Full article below....
