Apparently, during a radio interview Hoke has indicated that Lewis and Peppers were going to stick at CB position partly because our CBs were embarrassed during the ND game. I, for one, have not seen much from Peppers so far, but Lewis was really aggressive during the last game and a half and seems to have the speed and the quickness to recover from his mistakes. Peppers, by all accounts, is supposed to be faster so this looks very promising.
Does anyone know a good free source for downloading box score data? Primarily interested in this year's games, but somewhat interested in previous years as well. I'm looking to put together some statistical summaries of B1G games and would love to not have to enter data by hand if it's already out there (and free).
Thanks and Go Blue!
Texas Coach Charlie Strong today announced that starting QB David Ash will retire from football due to repeated concussions. This makes So. Tyrone Swoopes the starter. Due to reduced depth, Strong has added intramural star QB Jimmy Greenwood to the roster.
Per @umichfootball on Twitter.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The athletic departments at the University of Michigan and the University of Texas have reached an agreement in principle to play the first-ever home-and-home football series between two of college football's most recognizable programs. The two schools rank first (Michigan, 912) and third (Texas, 876) in all-time victories.
The Wolverines will host the Longhorns at Michigan Stadium on Aug. 31, 2024. The return trip by Michigan to Austin will take place on Sept. 4, 2027.
"A match-up of this magnitude doesn't come along all that often, and when it does it's special for both programs and the great fans that support each institution," said Brady Hoke, U-M's J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach. "This also is a special series for all fans of college football, and I anticipate great games just like the first contest played between the two programs."
I'll be 29 when they play in 2024 in Ann Arbor. And when they play in 2027 in Austin, It will be the 100th anniversary of Michigan Stadium and the 30th anniversary of the 1997 national championship....

Added an OT on for good measure
Ty Isaac's appeal was denied. He'll sit out the season.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) September 17, 2014
Isaac is the team's scout RB right now, will have 3 years left starting in 2015.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) September 17, 2014
Considering the team's depth at RB, this is good news.
