LB Sean Duggan (St. Xavier/Cincinnati, OH) has an unofficial top 5-10 (11) schools that are sticking out to him. He told me he has a lot of great schools after him, so his list changes every day.
The two that seem to be sticking out the most, at this point, are Wisconsin and Boston College. He said, they're not really his official leaders, but they stick out right now. The rest of the list includes Michigan (top 5), Virginia, Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, Oregon, Minnesota, and Arizona, Louisville, and NC State are tied. (Yes, I realize that's 11).
His father and grandfather both went to Notre Dame, so the rumor goes that he too will have a golden dome. Sean said that Notre Dame hasn't offered, so he's not worrying about them, and that he doesn't want to be someones second option, either. He wants to go to a school that wants him as much as he wants them.
He seemed pretty genuine in that, and I have to take him for his word. If Brian Kelly swoops in on a silver horse, with an offer in hand, they might still ride off in to the sunset, but I can't tell. He made it pretty clear that the rumors about Notre Dame leading, even if they were to offer, needed to be squashed.
He's been in contact with Coach Dews and Singletary, and finds them both very easy to talk to. He and Coach Dews have a few things in common, which has made the conversation easier. Sean was also excited that Michigan has a strong need at the linebacker position. He won't be at Michigan's elite camp, because he already has an offer, but is very excited to visit campus soon. His list will continue to change as he takes more visits, but he was adamant that Michigan is near the top.

So, I'm putting this out there again in the hope of getting some last minute donations. I will be participating in the Women's Football Academy this year. The money we raise goes to the Patient and Family Support Services for the U of M Comprehensive Cancer Center. Like Mott's Children's Hospital, it's a great cause. So please help if you can. I will be debriefing after the event right here on MGoBlog, and I promise, What happens at the Al Glick Fieldhouse will not stay at the Al Glick Fieldhouse. Thanks everyone. Here's the link to donate:
Some more media bringing to light the lack of any findings with the investigation. Analogy of the kid with straight A's sent to principal's office to show everyone else that the NCAA is serious. A good read. Went back a couple pages and didn't see anything about this, if so, my apologies.
edit: another story via rivals, this one directly attacking the Freep.
Suprisingly the Lions didnt even make the top 12 worst professional teams. I was expecting them to make top 5 at least. The funny thing Tampa Bay sucks at every sports.
So I have been looking everywhere since christmas to find either a Woodson or Braylon Edwards michigan jersey, but have come up empty. Only ones I find are either signed jerseys, the number #1 and #2 jerseys but with no name on the back, or some cheap stuff from China which looks like crap. I do not live near ann arbor so that wouldnt be option, so it would need to be online. And i dont want to do a personal jersey ( and i dont think eastbay even allows you to put woodson on your jersey). Can anyone help me out? This would be greatly appreciated.
