Mike Lantry, 1972
I received an email from a buddy of mine that I would like to share with everyone. We all know that Brady Hoke "gets it" at Michigan and this is just another example...
The following was sent to me by a fellow UM grad who lives in Seattle. I thought the group might be interested in the coaching style of a true “Michigan Man”! The first two items below have been given out in speeches to alumni groups (as has the "Strikes Policy") - so it is not secret. (1) The beginning of each team meeting: Hoke walks into the room and yells "good afternoon" ... the team is then expected to respond with great passion and enthusiasm "good afternoon." Then Hoke says "championships" ... the team is expected to respond with great passion and enthusiasm ... "42" ... the number of Big Ten championships Michigan has won. The Hoke says "Michigan" ... the team is expected to respond with great passion and enthusiasm ... "132" ... the number of years Michigan has played football. Finally, Hoke screams "beat" ... the team is expected to respond with incredible passion and enthusiasm ... "Ohio." (2) Also, when Hoke is introduced to the alumni group he says, "Don't applaud for me" and then asks any former players to stand - and has the audience applaud for them. Hoke says, "This is not about me - it is about YOU and the Michigan tradition." This all goes over big of course. +++++++ (3) One other thing -- the main emphasis in practice as far as the D goes: missed tackles. A kid who misses a tackle barely escapes with his life (figuratively of course) ... kids getting this treatment say to their friends after practice, "I will never miss another tackle again."
God, I hate Wisconsin.

So, Detroit News (not THAT Detroit news) is reporting that Rich Rod was spotted in an Oklahoma polo.
Apparently he's been visiting spring workouts in Norman, OK.
Do anything for anyone? Not sure if it does for me, but I thought it was a curious bit.
A search and quick scan of the first 2 pages turned up no results on this, so I cautiously posted.
Just got off the phone with Ohio OL Caleb Stacey, and he told me he has committed to Michigan. He just got back from a visit to West Virginia, but decided that Michigan was the right place for him.
Tim will have more soon.
I have seen one of their songs posted on here before, and for those of you that enjoyed that song, here are two new ones for your listening pleasure:
Does anyone know of a good adult flag football league in the AA area? A Google search didn't help me find anything and neither did the person at the desk of my rec center. I'm hoping to find a spring league that either starts soon or has already started and will let me join up now. Any help is appreciated.
