"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
Found this video on ESPN and thought people might find it interesting. Brian Bennett believes Cam Gordon can become a playmaker at linebacker. I hope he's right and the position switch will be beneficial to him and the team. I always thought he would be a better linebacker than DB, especially with his ability to lay the wood. Now he just needs to start wrapping up.
Granted, Bennett's not very well-spoked (should stick to writing) but an interesting segment nonetheless. I personally love how he says he can "be a difference maker if he upgrades and elevates his game." Srsly? And I can be president if I'm elected.

My first reaction to flipping on to the Big Ten Network was why?!?!
Then, I decided to watch it for historical purposes because I am that desperate for football to start.
You don't say...

Not a bad idea
Ok, this doesn't have to be a championship to be your memorable moment or anything like that. Maybe there were underlying factors that led to it being an incredible day of college football. Mine occurred on Sept 12, 2009.
I was rooming with my cousin at Central Michigan. CMU playing MSU in Spartan Stadium. When CMU recovered the onside kick it made our hearts race. Then MSU pulled a Sparty NOOOOOOOOOO and jumped offsides on a missed FG. CMU made the 2nd attempt and sent our campus into a frenzy.
Then we had to calm down, switch quickly to our Michigan gear, and watch another heart stopping thriller as Michigan pulled off the win over Notre Dame.
Later that night, Ohio State lost.
To recap, my school beat MSU, my favorite team beat Notre Dame, and OSU lost, meaning that the 3 schools I hate the most all lost, with 2 of the losses being in the dying seconds at the hands of my 2 favorite teams.
This is my favorite memory of college football thus far.
Let's hear yours.
"Michigan and Tennessee will definitely be in there for sure," the three-star defensive tackle said Wednesday between events at The Opening at Nike World Headquarters. . .
The hometown Wolverines have obvious appeal for the Flint (Mich.) L.M. Powers standout. There's proximity, a great relationship with Michigan's coaching staff and a memorable visit last month that was highlighted by a long chat with first-year Michigan coach Brady Hoke.
Assuming that the recent speculation that we're out of it for Kiel and Mauk and that Tom VH has reported that we're out of it for Coney, the only uncommitted QB on the 2012 Offer Board that is still looking at Michigan is Devin Fuller-- and my guess is that we're looking at him as much as an ATH as a QB). Additionally, the backups that werer mentioned most often-- O'Connor and Appleby (who apparently didn't do well enough at camp to earn an offer) are also gone.
With that in mind, are there any other potential QB offers on the horizon? Or does it look like we're going to wait and see if anyone emerges during the season (like Mike Simpson?)? I'm not up-to-date on any under the radar prospects that we might be looking at or people on the board might like, so any thoughts would be appreciated!
