in re: is GRIII on a tear
My brother, a casual college football fan, has enlisted my help in his CFB fantasy draft taking place this evening.
My knee-jerk reaction was GET ROBERT GRIFFIN...question to those who know more than I. Is he healthy this year? If you were making recommendations, who do you make a priority? Kellen Moore? Although, this may be limited to BCS only conferences. I will confirm.
Thanks and 19 FUCKING DAYS, HOW 'BOUT IT! GO BLUE!
I know this has been beaten to death, but I just saw a note from an insider where he mentions that about 20 guys did not participate in summer workouts. I have never played div 1 football so I don't know what usually happens but this seems incredulous to me. I had a better participation rate on my high school team 20 years ago. I know about the whole voluntary vs involuntary, but the way RR & Barwis set up their program I just assumed you either participated in the program Barwis set up for you or you were never going to play so you either just quit or transferred. I didn't see there being a gray area, considering the whole "playing time is voluntary" quote from RR.
If anyone has played or has intimate knowledge of what actually is supposed to happen I would appreciate it because this just doesn't compute. I assumed the weight coaches got everyones class schedule and they scheduled your workouts around your class schedule and you showed up 3-5 times a week to get your work in.
Didn't see this posted. So for those of you looking for more football stuff to get your fix, here you go.

So I was going to buy a Michigan jersey, as the most that I have is a hat from my first game I remember (went to some as a kid). Only thing is I don't know which one I should get. I know they don't have names if you buy them regular online. I mean a Braylon Edwards jersey would be cool, but he doesn't play here anymore. #7 is the other obvious choice. I was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions for names and numbers. Would be really cool.
Edit in: I was also considering NFL jerseys, less than Michigan, but if I could find a Woodson or Edwards jersey cheap that would be cool.
Hoping the MGOBLOGOSPHERE can help me out here. I have been playing quite a bit online but am struggling to stop the run. What defenses do you find help minimize the run the best?
