"In response to CBSSports.com's request for Michigan's concussion management protocol, the athletic department sent the NCAA's 11-page document for treating head injuries."
I know its not one people want to hear, but if this has any truth, it could get ugly today.
Could anybody check Ricardos facebook?
Rivals #3 ILB (4-star), and scout #7 MLB seems to have some interest in UM. This is very exciting as I feel its a position of need in this class.
He continues to have Kentucky, Louisville, Tennessee, Florida, USC, Michigan and Oregon as his top choices. And that’s not likely to change for the four-star prospect, who is rated as the state’s top player and one of the best linebacker prospects in the country.
The Heisman is making it's tour around the Country, and stopping in Ann Arbor today and tomorrow. If you want to swing by and see it (for those who go for that sort of thing), it's supposed to be at the Ann Arbor Nissan dealer off of Jackson from 11-6 today (Nissan is the Heisman sponsor) and tomorrow 10-12. At 12 it goes to the on Main and Stadium at WTKA's event (the Bud Light Victors Lounge, I believe, which is by invitation only, but maybe they have it somewhere public). And during the game it will be in the blue lot behind Crisler. It looks like via their website (which doesn't actually have it coming to Ann Arbor this weekend, so who knows what's right on there), pictures are allowed.
Per usual, the Daily's column is solid and witty, and the State News' column the usual grandstanding about how UM is dead, the number of days since UM beat MSU in football or basketball, and how RR scares people.
Wolverines Return was Inevitable
By: Michael Rosenberg, Free Press Staff
After a tumultuous first two seasons at the head of the ship in Ann Arbor, Coach Rich Rodriguez has the Wolverines (6-0) back on track after a thumping 42-17 victory over the Michigan State Spartans (5-1) yesterday at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor. The win marked Rodriguez's first in the storied rivalry, and basically assures the Wolverines of a return to the post season after their first two seasons since the 70's without a bowl trip.
In the end, it seemed inevitable, didn't it? Rodriguez has been a hugely successful coach at every stop in his career, both as a coordinator and a head coach. In each case, his first years have been slow, as he builds a custom offense from just the right players. And in each case, the end result was a thumping, dominating team that could and would win pretty much any game on their schedule. When all is said and done, didn't we all know that he would get U of M back to their rightful place in the upper echelon of the Big Ten? That he would put 'little brother' back in their place?
And it came not a moment too soon for Rodriguez, the players, the university and the fans. In a group so unaccustomed to losing, the rebuilding process seemed hard to take. And then, coupled with an NCAA issue that turned out to be much more bark than bite, and which actually began under Lloyd Carr, many fans and much of the media were calling for Rodriguez head.
All I can say is, Congrats Coach Rodriguez, and Godspeed through the Big Ten.
