The front page headline on Rivals: "Green says Michigan has the edge."
Sam Webb has been saying that we are the team to beat for sometime, but this is the first time that Green has confirmed that status. We can definitely use both him and Deveon Smith to bolster a shaky RB situation (especially if Fitz cannot come back to full strength).
I created a private group on espn.com for all of us to join and compete for bowl game selecting bragging rights. We will use the confidence point system, as 35 will be your most confident pick and 1 the least confident. First games start Saturday, December 15, and so please have your picks in by then.
The name of the group is called "MGoBloggers" and the password is "bighouse" (direct link below). Please use your MGoBlog username as your entry name so we know who is who.
If you don't have an ESPN SN, get one!...it's easy.
EDIT (please note):Please note there is a rolling lock feature on this in which I have ZERO control over, meaning people can change their picks for any of the games yet to be played (before kickoff obviously). Again, this a feature that is mandatory to use for on espn.com that don't have the option to eliminate.
Some practice footage probably from Friday and/or Saturday.
This was also referenced in a Detroit News article, but since they didn't provide a link to CBSSports, I will not provide a link there.
Devin is listed in the "Others to Watch" section, behind front-runners like Aaron Murray, Marquise Lee, and /shuddersvomits Braxton Miller.
Of course it's too early and the sample size is ridiculously small. Still impressive to get named to anyone's list after such a short time. Other B1G mentions: Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah and Taylor Martinez, and Michigan State's Leveon Bell (just kidding).
Oddly enough, he (Chris Huston) does not include Johnny Football on this list.
Good day for a couple NFC East Wolverines. Jason Avant of the Eagles had a career day not only statistically with 133 yards receiving (no TDs but came close) but also had two key grabs; one was an amazing 3rd and long catch shown in an earlier thread, but even more importantly he hauled in a game saving 4th down catch down at the 1yd line to set up the game winning TD. The NY Giants' Stevie Brown has 2 INTs so far and on the second had quite the run back. Good to see those two guys doing well!
Not necessarily Michigan-related, but certainly news for future recruiting classes, I suppose.
EDIT: Don't know why link doesn't work, but someone else a whole lot smarter than I am can fix that.
