The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
Well it looks like Brady had a significant enough foot injury in which he may even need a screw inserted into his foot. Makes his accomplishment with regards to interceptions all the more impressive.
Welcome night crew. Last night seemed to be a success. This thread is to recap the day's Michigan athletic's news. I am sure with these honest and innocent intentions that it will unravel into a late night booze and illegal substance posbang galore.

Yes, I am stealing from my own post, but I think It deserves it's own dicussion:
*-Did anyone actually break down the Fandom Endurance Badges and the standards for which one earns one? I know Northwestern 2008 is Fandom Endurance III because it was freaking cold, in the middle of a miserable season, and it was Northwestern, but I am wondering if the Central Michigan "Return to your Cars" game is Fandom Endurance II? Does the weather play a more central role than the opponent, which is to say, could a horrible weather game that Michigan won lessen the degree of a badge? Thoughts?
I'd love to hear opinions on this from someone who has a Fandom Endurance II from Boston College 1996 and Central Michigan 2006.
Also, does Virginia 1995 get a Fandom Endurance I for being so freaking hot?
When it comes to recruiting, other than the recruit, who is most important to keep positive relations with? ... High School coaches. The kids look to their coaches for advice on schools.
This brief article gives a sense of what the in-state coaches are thinking, so far, about the Hoke hire, and what they thought of RR. Should be a big recruiting positive.
I wanted to do a quick update on Maryland DT Darian Cooper, because there seems to be a lot of buzz about him.
He has maintained this whole time that Michigan's coaching situation was too much for him, and he eventually eliminated Michigan. I spoke with him when Brady Hoke was hired and he still felt the same way. I spoke with him the other day when Mattison was hired, and he said the same thing.
I spoke to him again tonight, and he said, "The coach came by the house today. He was cool, but I wish I had met him earlier. I'm pretty solid with my top three." His top three are Iowa, Michigan State, and Georgia Tech.
If he decides to visit then there would be reason for excitement, but I wouldn't get your hopes up. Don't take this as 100% because Brady Hoke could push hard, but as of right now it's not something to get excited about.
