While the bye week is good for the team and getting people healthy, personally I am having difficulty with it. There is still the bad taste in my mouth from the Iowa game, and all I want is to cleanse my palate with a UM win. But, sadly, I wont get that for at least another week.
So, my question is: what are you all doing to cope with the bye week today? Is it a Wife Day, like Six Zero, or something different? Going to the bar to watch some other good match-ups from around the country? Photoshopping Lloyd Brady a little more?
Personally, I will be spending my Saturday reflecting on glories past. I will be watching the Capital One Bowl victory over Florida, the overtime wins against State, the 2008 Wiscy game, and the 2005 Penn State game, to name a few. I plan on using this Saturday to bask in the past, and renew my hopes for this year and years to come.
Please share your Saturday plans, and maybe help some others find ways to deal with the off-week.
As a head's up, M vs Minnesota is on BTN for anyone staying in tonight. It's already in the 4th but hey, I'll watch anything Michigan right now. I'm paying particular attention to the defense in this game.
It's tied at 20 with 12:49 left in the 4th Q.
LB Antonio Kinard was originally a commitment for the 2010 class, but ended up going to Hargrave Academy in Virginia. There were questions about whether or not he would be a part of the 2011 class, and I spoke with him about that today.
I have talked to the coaches (at Michigan), and I will be enrolling in January as long as my SAT score is high enough. I should be getting my score back soon, like tomorrow. I need to get somewhere around 1000. I think I got that because I'm here at this military academy, and all I'm allowed to think about is my grades, football, and getting out of here.
So as long as his SAT score is high enough, he was told by admissions that he will be in to enroll January.
I'm sure this has been done before, but...
im curious to see people's predictions on who on the current roster will get drafted and where in the draft they will go.
Here's my go at it:
Martin - Early 2nd
Van Bergen - 6th round
Roh - 5th round
Mouton - 5th round (only because of measureables)
Denard - early 3rd
Tate - 7th
Stonum - 3rd
Lewan - 1st (top 15)
Schilling - 3rd
Molk - 3rd
Omameh - 4th
Koger - 7th
Denard is a really hard one to predict. If not for the recent successes of Vick and Vince Young, I would have said 5 round. However at this point, teams might be more open to quarterbacks in that mold. On the other hand, a team might take him with the plans to convert him to reciever.
