A couple reads on Tom Brady.
SI on Tom Brady's lifelong connection with his WRs. It includes his time in Ann Arbor with Aaron Shea, Tai Streets, Marcus Knight, and David Terrell.
ESPN with another profile of Brady and the Beav:
Just heard on WTKA that longtime Michigan running back coach Tirrel Burton passed away last night after suffering a heart attack. He was on Bo and Mo's staff from 1970 through the 1991 season. He coached some great ones while he was here.
Defensive analyst Rick Finotti is leaving - one of 6 analysts - to coach a Div 3 program (John Carroll) in OH. He was head coach of St. Edward in 0hio prior to being scooped up. It will be interesting to see if Harbaugh goes back to the HS ranks to fill this spot... and which HS. I believe with the loss of Jimmie Doughtery, that leaves 2 analyst slots open.

Where do you think Harbaugh will hold spring practice this year? Will it be at IMG again? Will it be outside of Ann Arbor during spring break again? Maybe at an NFL training camp? I've seen a few hints from knowledgble posters in various places that seem to think Jimmy has something up his sleave again.
The board is somewhat slow at the moment before we get some signing day excitement, so speculate here on where you would want Michigan to hold spring practice. My vote is for Southern California due to it being a rich recruiting area, lots of fun activities for the players, and I happen to live there so I'd try to watch some practices.
The Polynesian Bowl draft was held yesterday and the rosters were announced. All of the Michigan commits except Kurt Taylor (Dylan McCaffrey, Chuck Filiaga, Joshua Ross, & Phil Paea) got drafted by Team Ronnie Stanley. Nico Collins unfortunately got drafted by Team Marcus Mariota. There is only one Georgia commit in the game (WR Mark Webb) who is also on Team Mariota.
It looks like Corey Malone-Hatcher could not play in the game because he enrolled early at Michigan. I didn't see Jay Tufele or Oliver Martin on either roster as both were originally announced as committed to playing in the game. Game is on Saturday at 8PM PT streaming live on ESPN3.
