Mike Lantry, 1972
As a Bears fan, I hate the Packers, but they're on MNF (on a Thursday) and Woodson is getting all kinds of love from the announcers. he made a real sweet tackle breaking up a bubble screen, and that lead to Gruden talking about how amazing he is, followed up by a story from Mike Tirico about Woodson's offseason, the $2M donation to Motts (The University of Michigan's Children's Hospital according to Mike) and also his outing with Greise and Hutchinson and how they donated another Million.
Tirico said it's a great time to be Charles Woodson, and I just have to agree. As it must be always.
Got any other alumni making moves? Guys trying to make squads? Haven't seen Hart yet this game...
EDIT: Hart just got a Carry, and sure enough, Tirico let it be known that he had more carries and yards than anyone in M football history. Way to go Mike(s)
I have decided to write a haiku (5,7,5 syllables) in anticipation of Michigan's season. If you would like to submit a haiku as well it would be most welcome. Here's mine:
Hard wait for Marvin
Huskies fear the new Big House
Pray for healthy Molk

So, apparently the first week of the Rich Rodriguez Radio Show is this week from the Pizza House in Ann Arbor.
Would it be completely douch-esque to stage a mini protest on the Ohio State - Michigan rivalry obliteration? I'm not thinking an obnoxious one, just make sure we are heard and grab a hint of WTKA press :)
AD Brandon, on Coach's Radio Show, just mentioned that the sound engineers told him that the Big House is projected to be 30% louder than it has been. He didnt get into details but the comment came out of a discussion about the added suites. I hope so, as it would make home games a bit more intimidating for opponents. Add night games to that combination and it will be sweet.
While none of these players are starters, it is somehow reassuring that other programs lose players for various reasons.
It ain't just us.
