Peppers at 10, which seems low.
I'm filming a music video for "I Love You Denard" on Sunday. If you want to be in it and you're in Ann Arbor please meet me on the Diag at 1 PM to be a part of a big group shot. It should only take 15 minutes or so. If you can wear Michigan apparel please do, but if you can't just make sure you aren't wearing anything from another school.
I've been interested to see where Darryl Stonum would end up following his dismisal from the team. According to his Twitter it looks like that will be Baylor. I'm happy for him that he gets to return to his home state and resume his career. Once a Wolverine, always a Wolverine.
The entrance to the building will shift from the State Street side to the north side of the building. A statue of Bo Schembechler will stand in the entrance to the building and a wall will have his famous words “those who stay will be champions” inscribed on it.
Didn't see this anywhere in the MGoBlue article. I sugested it in a post in the thread from yesterday, without knowing about this article. Pretty awesome if you ask me. He deserves one, the building is named after him.
How about a Fritz Crisler statue at the new entrance of Crisler Center? A statue of the father of Michigan Athletics, Fielding Yost at Yost Arena? Bob Ufer at the concourse at Michigan Stadium? Ray Fisher at the entrance of Wilpon Baseball Complex? Don Canahm at the 'Nat?
Here's the statue of Bo at his alma mater, miami university
I know we have been hearing mixed reviews on who has had the best Elite 11 performance so far, but here is Mike Farrells input. He has him ranked as the top QB so far.
1. Shane Morris, Warren (Mich.) De La Salle - Morris earned the gold jersey for the afternoon after winning the accuracy contest in the morning and he continued his fine play in 7-on-7 situations. While all of the quarterbacks have been encouraged to check down quickly, Morris keeps his eyes downfield more than others, has a cannon arm and fit the ball into some tight windows. He still clearly prefers to throw to his left so he needs to work on field vision, but he has shown the most overall tools through two days.
Here's a few other QBs of interest:
4. Malik Zaire (ND)
7. Max Browne (USC) #1 QB in Rivals rankings
10. J.T. Barrett (OSU)
14. Christian Hackenberg (PSU)
So this internet thing has really become quite boring in the last month or 2 if you are a Michigan Football fan. Our recruiting has been for all practical purposes wrapped up for a while so let us turn our attention to the actual 2012 football season.
Almost every pundant/talking head thinks that we really lucked out last year with our record. most think a drop is almost certain what do you think? In a sentence or two give the reason why we win or lose.
- Sept. 1, Alabama (Dallas)
- Sept. 8, Air Force
- Sept. 15, Massachusetts
- Sept. 22, @ Notre Dame
- Sept. 29 Wifeday/apple picking in my household!
- Oct. 6, @ Purdue
- Oct. 13, Illinois
- Oct. 20, Michigan State
- Oct. 27, @ Nebraska
- Nov. 3, @ Minnesota
- Nov. 10, Northwestern
- Nov. 17, Iowa
- Nov. 24, @ Ohio State
Alabama - LOSE - They have a great offensive line returning, we have at best an unproven D-line that I think will be much better as the season progesses baring injury. Alabama will be able to run the ball. For us to have a chance Denard needs to play one of the best games of his career both running and passing.
Air Force - WIN - Closer than we may think but yes we win.
Massachusetts - WIN.
Notre Dame - WIN - They have a good front 7 but no back 4 and Denard takes advantage. After 3 games our Defensive line shows improvement against a quality opponent. Also Notre Dame is a little drained after a big overtime win the week before in East Lansing!
Purdue - WIN - This game is scary to me. Dont know why but we still win . . . closer than expected though.
Illinois - WIN - Illinois is going to a brand new system under a brand new coach. Illinois will be coming off a beatdown the week before at Wisconsin, and a lose to Penn State the week previous to Wiscy. Dont worry though . . . Indiana is up next.
Michigan State - Win - The ling nightmare is over and Little Brother is put into place. I think that if this game was at East Lansing we lose a close one. That be ing said MSU has a great Defense but Andrew Maxwell struggles as our defense takes another step up and Denard plays very well. This is the big turn for our Defensive line as they really play well and the back 7 shine as well. Pipkins in at starter after this game.
Nebraska - LOSE - So between this and MSU I think we lose one. Lincoln is a tough place to play and I'm sick of Dantonio so Nebraska it is.
Minnesota - WIN - They are better than last year but not ready to compete.
Northwestern - WIN - Alot like last years game but we have a running game this time. They make some plays on the offensive side of the ball but cant defend us.
Iowa - WIN - I kind of think that the lack of recruiting well, even by their standards, catches up with them this year. Their QB is the real deal but they dont have a ton after that.
Ohio State - WIN - This one is really a push for me. WE will be ready but this is their everything as they cant go bowling. Their Defense will be good and I think Braxton Miller is going to look like Denard did his Freshman year. They go as Braxton goes. I hate them so I say we win.
Yup, 10-2 is what I have which would put us in the BIG TEN title game against Wiscy.
Bowling, I have no idea???
Just something to talk about that has to do less with Penn State and more with football. What are your thoughts on our record this season?
