"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
Who on our roster will remain in the secondary next season. Here is a list of our secondary from the roster at http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/mich-m-footbl-mtt.html. I have omitted the walk-on types.
I know some of these guys are already linebackers, but other than Kovacs and Vinopal, who are going to be the players contending for spots at the more traditional free/deep safety positions.
I think there is a chance that either JT Floyd or Woolfolk displaces Vinopal from the starting rotation, and the one who doesn't replace Vinopal ends up as the other starting corner.

Denver Post is reporting that CU will hire Jon Embree as its next head coach. I guess they wanted to get someone in there from the CU "family." Eric "Sleeping With" Bienemy will be OC.
So I have no idea what happens in an evaluation meeting between AD's and their football coaches, but do you think RR gets a chance to plead his case?
Does he get an hour to put up graphs of Freshmen starters, FEI indexs, returning starters, WVU highlights,academic progress, recruiting etc.. and sell it to Brandon while he is sitting at the table?
I thought of this going thru the excellent thread on the state of Stanford's defense. The last few days have been filled with a lot of garbage, but I have been impressed with the number of charts and graphs and arguments people have laid out. It got me to wonder if Brandon actually looks at stuff like that?
On one hand you would think he is the man that has to make this decision, he should know every single thing about the program and have looked at it from every different way and he has had his staff put together the same type of graphs and records for him to look at.
On the other hand I can't picture Brandon looking it over and saying "boy the FEI index shows us as the #1 offense RR is back". I'm picturing him making a decision on more of an overview and feel.
Curious how geeky you think Brandon gets on this stuff. What do you think?
So I was looking through the available games on my iPhone the other day, and saw that EA Sports has come out with an NCAA football game for the iPhone.
Its $5 and of course I downloaded it.
It is essentially exactly the same as Madden, but has a limited number of teams. The instructions say you can create your team if they are not one of the available options.
The game does a surprisingly good job at representing Michigan stadium, and the into to games in the Big House is not bad. Hail to the Victors blairs as the camera pans over the crowd. Its definitely worth the 5 bucks.
Another bonus to the game, Sparty is not one of the included teams. Central Michigan is on there, Houston is on there, but no MSU. I found that comical. Its just another indication that they'll always be little brother. We don't have to beat them every season for that relationship to hold (although that would be nice!).
First off, I am completely prepared to get neg-banged for this post but let me plead my case.
The Old Dominion Mascot is close to beating the Oregon Duck in the Final Four of the Mascot Challenge. This is crazy because Old Dominion just got football 2 years ago and aside from basketball is virtually unnoticed in the sports world. I call upon the mgoblog community to help the ODU mascot Big Blue by voting at www.capitalonebowl.com I was hoping he would be facing Brutus but o well. Heres why:
1) Michigan doesn't have a mascot so why not?
2) When is the last time you got to beat Oregon?
3) His name is Big Blue...close enough right?
4) It's a distraction from all the CC posts and negativity on this board
5) It would be funny to see a mascot nobody has even heard of beat out every major mascot in D-1 football
