this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Interesting article by UM grad Chait exploring whether college football and basketball players are exploited. Well written as always and food for thought.....plus a picture from The Game on top.
Black Shoe Diaries, MyFox in Philly, Athlon's and others are all speculating, or saying that Dan Mullen might be a candidate at Penn State. Not to start daily Meyer to OSU watch (I mean, it's only Penn State), but I thought it was interesting to think how he'd do there. He's from Philly, so he has ties to the State. It could be a thorn in Meyer's side over in the Leaders division, for obvious reasons. And we had our own not so great exposure to him 11 months ago, and he was considered as a top candidate for the Michigan job by this site. So, I can see how it would make sense.
Would this be good for Penn State? Good for us in it would give Meyer more competition in his division, and recruiting? Or bad...would it make the Big Ten tougher? Just curious what people think of the now still in the rumor stage possibilities.
Any time in the next few minutes. Should be tremendous.
Sad. I always hoped this guy's career would be better since my high school and his were so close, but he never seemed able to stay healthy. Hopefully things work out for him.
EDIT: Mods, feel free to delete this thread, the whole thing has disintegrated into an (unforeseen) debate on marijuana laws. Sorry.
[MOD-PGB: Normally I enjoy a good debate but this one has been had before and we don't need another 50% saying pot should be legalized vs. 50% saying laws are laws and should be abided by. So I locked this thread but am leaving it up because it is pertinent news about a former beloved Wolverine. Good post, JClay.]

Definitely worth a look!
I forgot to mention this yesterday, but Hoke's presser yesterday was the only scheduled one this week. We'll know more once the bowl schedule becomes clear.
