further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
I've been a fan of football for 30 plus years but always as more of a casual observer. I've never played organized football and until recently I've watched football much like college kids drink wine; with a lack of true understanding (no offense intended to the Boone's Farm contingent). Based on the advanced content we get from some of the Mgobloggers, I took it upon myself to educate myself and deepen my understanding of the treasure-trove of information that is supplied on a weekly basis. If you don't know the difference between a Mike, Sam, and Will linebacker or are lost when someone refers to the A-gap I encourage you to check out About.com. http://football.about.com/od/positionprofiles/a/Linebacker.htm The second link describes the different defensive line techniques (i.e. 3tech, 5tech, etc.) http://football.about.com/od/intermediateinstruction/a/Defensive-Gap-Con... I've never known where to find these things in the past and figured others of you might benefit. All apologies for the formatting but it's my first post and an iPad one on top of it.
I've got three of these to get through by tomorrow night so I won't have time for the extra analysis/summary that I need to make this a diary.

Free interview and video with Garnett, about his season, recruiting, and training. He has a little mention of Michigan as he says he will for sure take an official (which was a given, but alway nice to be reaffirmed). Seems like a smart kid, and is very well spoken for a high school senior. As many feel, would love to have the kid end up in this class.
I am sure it will be interesting to follow his post football career.
Free Scout interview after his game this past weekend with Tara Turnure. Powe says Michigan is in his top five, and one of three standing out along with UCLA and Oregon State. He says he still plans to take an official to Michigan, and will almost certainly be after his season. Powe could still be a nice option along with our chances with Payton and Darboh.
Supposedly fails alcohol test after his FIFTH (!) suspension. Little fishy that his dismissal comes after he played poorly this season, but as the saying goes: Fool me once, strike one. Fool me five times...Strike three.
