"If ever there was an identity-defining running back for an offensive philosophy, it's Green"
"Michigan wants nothing more than to get back to power football via a controlled passing game based off play-action, and Green is the right back to execute it. Not only do we expect him to get significant playing time as a true freshman, but we expect him to be a bell-cow back, in similar fashion to Montee Ball at Wisconsin (only Green is bigger and more physical and might be faster)."
There hasn't been a lot of recruiting posts lately and frankly I am really bored at work.... so, I thought I would make a list of Michigan targets and have the MgoUser's make their crystal ball picks. Feel free to add any potential Michigan targets that I might have missed. Here are my "expert" picks...
Da'Shawn Hand - Michigan
Adoree' Jackson - USC
John "Juju" Smith - USC
Malik McDowell - Michigan
Joe Mixon - USC
Jamarco Jones- Ohio St
Garrett Dickerson - Stanford
Artavis Scott - Michigan
Parrker Westphal - Michigan
KJ Williams - Michigan
Kalen Ballage- Oregon
Darrion Owens - Georgia
Braden Smith- ND
Jonathan Hilliman- Ohio St
Noah Furbush- Michigan
Dwight Williams - Michigan (my dark horse pick)
Montae Nicholson - Michigan
EDSBS posted a satirical article about how Alabama has started a water feature arms race in the SEC. I thought the article was pretty funny, and wanted to expand on it with B1G teams. What water features would each B1G team install to keep up with the Jones'?
- - -
Michigan - A toss up between an environmentally friendly bong water treatment plant and a reflection pool that shows the reality that the things they hate about Notre Dame alumni also apply to Michigan.
MSU - An irrigation system suitable for such a large, chiefly agricultural school.
Indiana - An even larger irrigation system, as a way to one up their bitter rivals at MSU.
Ohio State - A more robust set of facilities to handle human excrement, allowing for cleaner coolers in which to chill their Natty Light. OSU will then build a system in which they can filter clean urine back to their compliance department, using student privacy laws to keep the system top secret.
Penn State - Please don't say kiddie pool, please don't say kiddie pool... Kiddie pool. Dammit!
Illinois - Just a new 5 gallon water cooler. They've really tried to temper the ambitions of their athletics program to fit with reality.
Rutgers - Installing a nice coy pond in each of the campus's sanctioned tanning salons.
Wisconsin - Raffling off the remaining supply of Aqua Velva that was left when Bielema departed. It's got the word aqua right on the label, bros.
Northwestern - Building diversion tubes to route Lake Michigan water directly into Ryan Field so that they can force visting schools into engaging in naval combat, rather than football. A decided schematic advantage when you're the smartest kid in the conference.
Iowa - A drowning pool for appeasing the AIRBHG through the practice of human sacrifice.
Minnesota - Another lake.
Maryland - Athletic department too poor to install any new water features. Please use the drinking fountain at the public park across the street.

Got an email with the above information from the U of M Chicago Alumni Association. Mark your calendars, Brian's coming to the Windy City. After hearing about last year's event in DC I'm thrilled that Brian will be travelling west on I-94. I know we've got a big contingent of MGoBloggers in Chicago, and I look forward to meeting some of you IRL.
