"(I) think about 'The Lion King,' Simba gets hit over the head and (he's told) 'the past can hurt,' " Harbaugh said Monday afternoon. "'You can either run from it or embrace it and learn from it.'
I recently came across a website which features a decent number of Michigan/ Ohio State articles. By reading through, it seems to be a pro-Michigan blog with an active coverage of Michigan recruiting.
The editor, Matt Hansen, does a good job of summarizing Michigan's weekly news wrap. Not sure if this site is legit and if it deserves a link in the links section.
Edit - On the downside - it reminds me of Bleacher Report with its color scheme and non-Michigan related articles.
This is from Maize-n-brew but I didn't see it mentioned anywhere on here amidst all the panic...rule 1-4-4-f states that legal uniforms must have "Clearly visible, permanent Arabic numerals on one jersey at least 8 and 10 inches in height front and back, respectively, of a color in distinct contrast with the jersey."
Since those...unusual...prototypes do not have a number nor room for an 8" number on the front, they cannot be the ones we will wear in the game, can they?
This very informative article on the Nike camp was posted in a thread by GehBlau. I think it deserves its own thread, but I saw he didn't have the points to do so.
The article shows that A. Washington and D. Stanford have very high interest in Michigan--the most I've seen to date. And that Michigan commits dominated in Columbus:
While plenty of parents were wearing Ohio State gear on the sidelines of the camp, there wasn't any being worn on the field. Ironically it was archival Michigan's maize and blue that littered the field. Quarterback Shane Morris, linebacker James Ross and cornerback Terry Richardson were among the top performers and represented their future school well on enemy territory. Richardson was the most recent to commit to going to Ann Arbor for college and discussed his verbal pledge last week.
“I committed to Michigan because I felt comfortable with them,” he said. “I did like Alabama and all the other schools but I felt the best at Michigan and that's why I picked them. I have a lot of friends going there and we'll make it happen up there.”
Richardson injured his hamstring at a track meet the night before running the 200 meters but still managed to lock down opposing receivers. He was one of several players whispering in a few recruits' ears about how good it was to be a Michigan man.
At the Nike event this weekend, Washington reportedly told the five schools he would use his officials on. BAsed off the five schools listed now "high interest" on scout those would be OSU, Miami, Alabama, Mich, and ....Kentucky? Surprise with that one. It must be the fact he lives in Cincinnati. Glad to see we made it. He is a complete freak. Will be tough to beat out OSU though.
Edit: Apparently we have also made the top 6 for Se'Von Pittman
The Michigan commitment train never stops. Back to the front page we go! Action since last rankings:
5-17-11 Ohio State gains commitment from Blake Thomas. Northwestern gains commitment from Joseph Jones.
