I don't know how many of you have had a chance to watch video of Chesapeake (VA) Oscar Smith defensive tackle Andrew Brown, but it's pretty impressive. He's one of the top few defensive tackles in the 2014 class, if not the best. Michigan is on a long list of early favorites, but obviously there's a long way to go in his recruitment. Anyway, this week's scouting report is on Brown, who would fit really well at 3-tech for Michigan.
According to the michigan board on espn, oklahoma is pursuing jerry montgomery to fill their vacant defensive line coaching spot. Although going from Michigan to Oklahoma to take the same position seems like a step down, I could definitely see Montgomery taking an offer from Oklahoma considering Michigan basically has two other defensive line coaches with Hoke and Mattison. Going to Oklahoma would allow him to independently coach his own position group, and would likely come with a pay raise. If Dave Brandon is smart, he will counter an Oklahoma offer and lock up Montgomery, whom I believe is next in line for defensive coordinator when Mattison retires. Thoughts?

It's being called "Owlcatraz." Makes the Trohl Center look good.
As per ESPN Insider Quin Blanding is going to make his decision on Feb 27. The choice will be among his top 10 schools (Michigan being one of them).
Since he hasn't visited yet, I don't think bodes well for the good guys.
We were winning by as much as 10,000 yesterday and now we're losing by 2,000. We need to step it up!
Details of Cam's contract was released pending approval by the Board of Supervisors (e.g. rubber stamp).
The interesting thing is when you combine this with Chavis' remaining two years on his current contact as DC you get the following bill not counting any other assistants (and obviously Les)
It is not SEC speed, it is SEC spending.
