to play football, not to play trumpet
In certain aspects, I'm still a little angry at Jim Harbaugh, but I'm happy that a "Michigan Man" has done so well in his first year as a coach in the NFL. It's incredibly rare to do what he has done, and he has done it the Michigan way, running the ball effectively, and playing stiffling defense. So again, congrats Coach Harbaugh, a lot of Michigan men are pulling for you.
Edit: For those that didn't see or hear about it, the 49ers beat the Saints in a fantastic game, 36-32.
Reading through this article, I am absolutely amazed people think that JoePa was just fine running things at PSU. How on earth can a college head football coach not know that his defensive coordinator was being not only accused of but investigated for child molestation (as JoePa claims he knew nothing of the Sandusky happenings in 1998)? I am also wondering how he can seriously say he didn't even know what the charges were....as in he didn't understand how a rape could happen with Sandusky and young boy. I detest JoePa even more after this interview.
Here's the interview I did with Shane Morris this week. I think it really answers a lot of the questions that people have about Shane. In talking to him, I feel like he's aware of what lies in front of him and has the right support system surrounding him. In short, he should be great. Here it is, hope you enjoy: Shane Morris
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I feel like I am getting different information depending on which sources I check and at what time. Rivals has an article that projects Michigan's chances with remaining targets.They say that Yuri Wright is a "wildcard" and that it seems both parties have lost interest in each other. Ace's Thursday Recruitin' also shows some of the confusion around Wright's recruitment.
So what is going on? Did he make it to campus this weekend? Are we still in play? Signing Day is about two and a half weeks away and we still have four spots to fill. It would seem that Wright would be a great candidate for one of those spots.
Any insight would be appreciated.
High praise coming in for Ondre from Rivals' lead recruiting analyst. Obviously star ratings don't matter at this point, because if the coaches want him I'm in, but this almost seems to all but guarantee him to finish as a five-star when the Rivals' final rankings come out this week, doesn't it? A comparison to Haloti Ngata? Rivals had Ngata ranked as their #2 overall prospect in 2002, FWIW. Congrats to Ondre on his great week at the Army Bowl.
Who was the most pleasant surprise to you during either Army Bowl Week or Under Armour Week?
Mike Farrell: DT Ondre Pipkins heading to Michigan. He was impressive in size, he was so athletic for a big man that it blew me away and he was such a nice, high character kid as well. I haven't seen a defensive tackle that big with the ability to move like that since Haloti Ngata years and years ago.
