Today's Wojo column in the Detroit News is about the MSU - ND game.

However, he couldn't resist a little, Little Brother trash talking. To wit:
I like it when Wojo stokes up the fires of resentment in East Lansing. No better place, I always say.Michigan State's Kirk Cousins has been billed as, possibly, the best quarterback in the Big Ten who actually ties his shoelaces. Always eager to keep up with their brotherly neighbors, the Spartans sent word to the national media Cousins often runs around with his chinstrap unbuckled.
I was wondering if there is anyone living in the Los Angeles area that knows of a place that will be showing the UMass game? I know Hollywood Billiards would show the games but it is closed for renovations. Thanks!
What gives? Iv been waiting for people in the know to give me a daily update as to expected gameday conditions. lets not break tradition here guys...
Regardless of whether or not you like Lady GaGa (I don't), the MMB's show this week is all about her. Who's ready to dance their asses off? The show has already got some attention. Watch the video from ND's NBC broadcast, or http://jezebel.com/5636635/university-marching-band-presents-gaga-halftime-show. Hopefully the crowd helps this show become a hit!

Two of Michigan's offensive line targets, who happen to be teammates, will be on hand for an unofficial visit this weekend at the UMass game. 2011 Chris Bryant (6'5", 330 lbs.), and 2012 recruit Jordan Diamond (6'6", 290 lbs), both of Simeon High School in Chicago will be there. I caught up with Jordan to ask about the visit, first film of Jordan at the Michigan Showcase, then the questions.
TOM: What made you decide to visit for this game?
JORDAN: I just wanted to see one of my favorite college teams play, and see what it's like to be in the Big House live.
TOM: What are you hoping to get out of this visit?
JORDAN: I want to see the tradition, I want to learn more about the offense, and hopefully talk to some of the players.
TOM: Who's coming with you?
JORDAN: My Mom, Aunt, and Chris (Bryant).
TOM: Is this your family's first time up to Michigan? What are they hoping to experience or see?
JORDAN: It's the first time for my Aunt, but it's the second time for my Mom. They're hoping for a good game, they want to meet the coaches. They want to sit in the Big House, and see that. I know they're excited about this trip.
TOM: You said Chris will be there too. Is his decision going to affect yours, and do you think he's going to make a decision this weekend?
JORDAN: It's going to affect me a little, but I'm going to make my decision based on me. If I feel like it could be my second home, then great. But, Chris is going to make his own decision. I don't think it will be this weekend, but you never know.
Jordan is also considering Arizona, LSU, Oregon, Ohio State, Illinois, Minnesota, MSU, and Stanford.
