With this game I have uploaded, all 12 of Michigan's wins in the 1997 National Championship Season are online. I edited my video very similar to WolverineHistorian.
I have seen a lot of requests on his channel for this game, so I figure I would upload it. This is my first time uploading highlights and editing, so let me know how I did. In the coming days, I will be uploading some classic Michigan Basketball and Michigan Hockey games.
This just in from Sam Webb over on the Twitter:
Hearing another youngster slated to visit #Michigan today. Beaver Falls, PA QB Chandler Kincade. The 2014 signal caller is committed to Pitt
There was a rumor over on Rivals that Michigan was getting a visitor this weekend that is currently committed to another school, and that there was a chance he could flip. Beaver Falls = Namath, FYI.
It was just announced that starting next year, College kickoffs will be from the 35 yard line now, like what the NFL did this year. Any thoughts on the issue? I personally don't like the move, I think limiting the head start the kicking team gets would be fine
Looking ahead toward the future of UM's passing game, I fear a dramatic reduction in the utilization of Taco Pants. The Mythical 8 foot tall receiver has benefited from the abundance of slot ninjas on the roster and DRob's inaccuracy as a passer, especially when nursing injury.
Two factors will likely reduce the utilization of Taco Pants in the passing game:
1. Quarterback Play - A fully healthy DRob with two full years in Borges's system will likely fell less compelled to seek out Taco Pants as a second or third option. Devin and Shane are widely believed to be more accurate passers than DRob. While Taco Pants may be an attractive target during times of transition, Devin and Shane will likely be better prepared that the wave of freshmen who took the reigns over the past several years.
2. Receiving Target Recruiting - While Junior Hemingway was often able to snatch passes intended for Taco Pants with his leaping ability, no other UM receiving target has capable to challenging Taco Pants for passes thrown high. Hoke seems to have sent out a directive to recruit taller receiving targets. Jaron Dukes and Jake Butt have the height necessary to come away with passes intended for Taco Pants.
While his contributions have been many. I fear that Taco Pants may fade from our awareness as he is utilized less often.
I thought we could use a little humor on a Friday. Here's a funny Yahoo! Sports story for you. Free agent to be LaRon Landry has apparently been hitting the weights pretty hard during his injury rehab. I like the fake letter to his suitors. While he is crazy big for a SAFETY, I still don't think he can take "Hulk" from our man Martin.
"Also, I wear gloves while using the restroom."
Thought I'd pass this along to you guys, I saw it while browsing Maxpreps. Good luck to you guys, I love his tape, and I'd honestly not read or heard much about him. Upon further review, it looks like he committed to ND after the first night game at Michigan. Being Catholic myself (I know, a Catholic southerner) I can appreciate his position. The debate between he and Pocic is a good one, they are both very similar players. I love Elmer's strength, and his technique. That kid could come in and compete for playing time from summer camp on. I don't think Kelly's offense suits Elmer's obvious strengths, so I could see Michigan landing him.
By the way, this is one of those kids that when he says "Academics are important", where you actually believe him. While he may have gotten a plethora of other offers, I think the SEC would've stayed away. Besides Ole Miss that is, and to be honest, Ole Miss is actually a damn good school academically.
