chance of bowl: 13.6%
MVictors has a pretty cool piece about TSIO's stadium and someone that spent two years creating a Lego replica.
So I'm placing a call to our Lego engineers and architechs to respond to this piece of Buckeye Lego art.
Just remember this if you try to build a Big House replica:
Well, that was short-lived.
While the OC position has been known since coach Hoke was fired, the DC position remains unfilled. If were getting a member of the Michigan Mafia such as Austin, Heater or Bedford, one would guess that we could have gotten them relatively quickly (especially given the fact that Austin is currently unemployed and Heater was before going to Temple).
Could the lack of a hire mean that we're going after a big name like Randy Shannon? Or does DB feel that he needs to go through a six-day chasing period even though he knows who is going to get hired?
Next to abysmal defense, the next worst area of performance for Michigan football teams has come from Special Teams. This is not just a recent phenomenon; special teams debacles have haunted Michigan for years. Will Brady Hoke change this tradition?

This seems to be lot like the Brady Hoke resume - a couple of good years among a sea of mediocrity (or worse). Hopefully, there will be more of an emphasis on special teams, but then again, hope is not a strategy.
Aaron Rodgers pulls through, book it.
Does anyone else thing that the strength, speed, and overall awesomeness of our O-line may actually be well suited to a more conventional power run game with guys like Stephen Hopkins in the backfield? I see a little Hart in that guy.
