Michigan urging Wilton Speight to think like a coach, telling Brandon Peters his time is coming. No mention of O'Korn/Malzone
Mlive discussion of QB competition:
Michigan Football recruiting 2017: MLive article discussing DTR, Brevin Jordan,Tyler Friday and more!
I guess Coach Harbaugh and the rest aren't just sitting around drinking milk and watching the Tournament.
Few facts are in yet, other than Lewis is cooperating, was not arrested and is not restricted from leaving the state.
I hope this is nothing, but I know what we'd be saying if it wasn't a Wolverine standing accused.
In the planning stages for Friday April 14 is a concert at Crisler. This is the night before the spring open practice so think "Harbaugh experience". Who will the headliner be? We've had DJ Khaled, Big Sean, Migos, Josh Groban impersonators before so I'm guessing something in a different vein and going with Keifer Sutherland. He's famous, untalented, played the Ark and then the Folk Festival at Hill, so he's ripe for the horrible acoustics at Crisler.
Article by Nick Baumgardner over at Mlive. Don Brown talks about how young the defense will be next year.
Here are a couple of nice quotes
"But we're not going to change the way we make our living. If you approached our young corners and said 'hey, guys, you're not capable of playing press' -- I think they'd fight you in an alley."
"Rashan Gary's a scary human being," he said. "When you call them out to the mat (on the mat drill) they leap out at you. He's always in front of me and I think he does it on purpose, but when he leaps, it's like 'I think he may kill me.'"
Didn't see either of these posted.
ESPN put out a couple College Football stories this morning involving Michigan. Only posting this because there's nothing else going on right now amiright?
First is weaknesses for every way-too-early top 25. Michigan's bit:
Experience, plain and simple. The Wolverines sent 14 players to the NFL combine and have only five returning starters. Only one is back on defense. Luckily, there's plenty of young talent and a great coaching staff, and Ohio State made the playoff last year with a similar lack of seasoning. But the lack of proven veterans will be a concern until proven otherwise. -- Bennett
They also did a hypothetical 64 team tournament for football, with Michigan hypothetically losing to eventual hypothetical champion Alabama. There is more about how they hypothetically got to that hypothetical position.
(1) Florida State 30, (3) USC 27: There has never been any doubt about Deondre Francois' toughness. In the opener of the two historic Final Four football games, the redshirt sophomore takes his biggest step yet as a quarterback -- and on his biggest stage -- by throwing two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to rally the unbeaten Seminoles to the national championship game.
(1) Alabama 21, (5) Michigan 16: Who didn't want to see this matchup? Nick Saban vs. Jim Harbaugh. While the two coaching giants don't come to blows over satellite camps during their pregame chat, their two teams trade blows on the field in a punishing struggle that comes down to the Crimson Tide holding the Wolverines on fourth-and-1 just inside the Alabama 20-yard line. Harbaugh is furious afterward about what he says was the kind of "SEC-tilted spot that Paul Finebaum would have made."
