"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
JoePa and Coach K are part of a program that will air on ESPN on June 30th at 8:00.
They're basically giving out life lessons and advice, and tips that they've picked up through the trade.
One of the interesting things JoePa talked about was what he wants to see happen in college football. He expressed a desire for freshman to be ineligible, talked about how he wants the scholarship limit to increase to 90 from 85, and increased practice time.
I thought all three were interesting for Michigan fans, as the scholarship limit would certainly help us this recruiting season, maybe with Joe's increased practice time, we wouldn't have gotten in trouble, and we have had to start freshmen the past couple years.
Do you think any of these will happen? Or is this just an old guy talking and no one listening?
So sayeth Tom on teh Twitterz.
Ohio RB/FB Alden Hill just received an offer from #Michigan. I'll have more from him soon.
I read that there was a rumor he'd tried to commit to Michigan, and the coaches weren't responsive. Then he committed to MSU.
What I want to know is:
*Are these rumors substantive?
*If so, did the coaching staff see something they didn't like? Or, was there a good reason to pass on a 4* rivals ranks as the #8 WDE?
Yesterday on the Big Ten Blog, there was a mailbag question from a Nebraska fan wondering about his team playing in a trophy game in their new conference. He suggested taking the Land-Grant game away from MSU (which they probably wouldn't care about..), but it got me thinking.
Wouldn't it be cool / fun / rivalry-y for Michigan and Nebraska to play for some kind of "1997 National Championship" or something like that? Obviously worded a little better..
I'm not sure if that guy asking the question was just some outlier and Nebraska fans don't really care about trophy games (most are stupid), but that brings me to my question.
Who would decide to play for a trophy? The ADs, presidents, coaches, or the B1G? And do you think Nebraska will play in a trophy game?
I know there's the story of the Little Brown Jug, leaving it in Minnesota and having to beat them to get it back, but I'm completely clueless about other ones.
Apparently Coach Paterno was strolling around campus and decided to stop for a moment and watch his boys participate in voluntary workouts.
Found this on yahoo this morning, he is asked about a series of topics including his tenure at michigan, the Bill Stewart situation, current state of affairs of college football, and whether or not he is glad he didn't sign TP. Thought it was an interesting read.
