in town for free camps
I know there have been some posts about Fanday next week, but I am still a bit unclear about what there is to do.
Can we go on the field? Are there other things to do other than get autographs? The band play? Cheerleaders? Refreshments available?
I have a 4 year old and hope there is enough to do to bring him and hang around the Big House for a few hours.
Question for the folks out there:
Where is "South Detroit?"
I was born in Detroit and raised in the suburbs. I have never lived more than 30 miles from the Detroit border yet I have never wandered into this elusive part of Detroit. I can easily identify the east side, west side, and the southwest corner of the city. One would suppose from the way thousands of Detroit area fanatics belt out the lyrics from the classic rawk hit that the region is famous or populated or exists.
I hope someone can fill this gap for me. If not, well, I will forever endure the apprehensive shudder that courses through my soul each time the first note of the Journey song pierces the gameday sanctity of Michigan Stadium.
Via DGDestroys twitter, Michigan has started to get back in to things with cornerback Yuri Wright. "Yuri Wright, says Michigan is the school he's always wanted to go to and that they'll definitely get a visit.
It may have been overzealous competition for future athletes, or simply a couple of errors attributed to a misunderstanding of athletic bylaws.
But the actions of the football programs at both Sylvania high schools — Southview and Northview — were each ruled to be in violation of Ohio High School Athletic Association bylaws dealing with recruiting incoming high school student-athletes.
If you are wondering the relevance of this thread. Sylvania Southview is the high school of 2012 Football Recruit, Allen Gant.
I updated a few of the positions from the list I put up a few weeks back with the new commits and threw in a few potential players in parenthesis. Also, I switched up Ojemudia and Strobel's spots at WDE and SDE, respectively. I only have two 2013 recruits listed as potential starters outside of Morris who has committed and they are Wyatt Shallman and Dymonte Thomas at RB. I realize that Thomas projects better at safety, but he could play RB depending on how the cards fall. I also had to speculate on who will get redshirted and who will not. This is a rough idea as to what our team could look like and is not by any means definitive.
Let the drooling commence.
QB: Shane Morris Jr/Jr
FB: Sione Houma Sr/Sr
RB: Justice Hayes Sr/Sr* (Dunn please. If Hayes isn’t redshirted, we could potentially be looking at Shallman or Dymonte Thomas if he doesn’t play S)
WR: (Madaris, Darboh, Chesson, Payton; Hopefully Reeves or Diggs. I don’t think Stanford will be a part of this class.)
TE: Funchess Sr/Sr OR Barnett Sr/Sr*
LT: Erik Magnuson Sr/Sr
LG: Kyle Kalis Jr/Sr
C: Jack Miller Sr/Sr*
RG: Blake Bars Jr/Sr
RT: Ben Braden Jr/Sr (Diamond?)
SDE: Chris Wormley Sr/Sr OR Tom Strobel Sr/Sr
DT: Matt Godin Jr/Sr OR Chris Wormley Sr/Sr
NT: (Any one of Pipkins, O’Brien, Shittu would do nicely)
WDE: Mario Ojemudia Jr/Sr OR Pharaoh Brown Sr/Sr
WLB: Joe Bolden Sr/Sr
MLB: Royce Jenkins-Stone Sr/Sr
SLB: James Ross Sr/Sr
CB: Terry Richardson Sr/Sr; Anthony Standifer Sr/Sr (Reeves)
SS: Allen Gant Jr/Sr
FS: Jarrod Wilson Sr/Sr
