“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
"Free programs!" Remember when guys (usually right at the corner of Hoover and State) would pass out those little newsprint programs ("Michigan Football Guide") with a watercolor cover, preview of the game and predictions from Punt and Counterpunt? (They always used old-school cartoon team logos above the team rosters.) A couple years ago they scaled down production, going from printing them every game to something like four home games a year. I didn't see them for the UConn game. Anyone know if they'll be back? I hope so. They were great little reading material for halftime and quarter breaks.
according to SI, it looks like Schilling's NFL stock is on the rise. On the other end of the spectrum, it seems UConn's Lawrence Wilson isn't so lucky. Let's keep it up!
Rivals just released their preseason Prep School Top 50 rankings and Antonio Kinard comes in at Number 34. However, it does not say that he's committed to Michigan - it simply says "list." Does anyone have any updates as to what his status is?
Here's video of Kevin Sousa's first game this year.
Of course, 3 of 5 picked UConn last week. Dodd picks against UM for the second straight week, but, has UM at #22 in his power rankings. Huh?
I'm sure you guys will like this quote from Rittenberg's chat today:
Corey (East Lansing, Mi)Adam, Michigan State went to a bowl game last year and brought back the majority of its offensive skill and standout defensive players. Yet, somehow, Michigan is a few votes away from getting into the AP top 25 and MSU is at the very bottom? I understand Michigan played well, but still. Tell me how this is possible because UM's 8-16 record the past few seasons proves otherwise.
