fair point that
I know TomVH has been all over this. However, I thought this was an interesting article on Wayne Morgan. It is pictured on ESPN College Football Recruiting main web page right now. A little positive thinking after the Pike2Auburn today.
Reports by Paul Finebaum is saying that Harvey Updyke was attacked after his hearing at a gas pump outside of Auburn. Harvey Updyke was the person involved in poisoning the trees at Toomer's Corner.
Who didn't see this coming?
Way too early, miscellaneous season predictions go here:
First QB Sack: Jake Ryan covering a scramble.
First TD: Denard to Odoms completion. 31 yards.
I'm still getting over Zeke not coming but I'm dealing. I have heard people talk about what is next and whose still on the radar. It seems like people have the feeling we will turn are attentions to Maty Mauk. Is he the next option? I've seen names like Gunner Kiel, Beannie Coney, and Appleby. I know Appleby is camping for an offer. My question is what name should I start following now that Zeke isn't wearing the winged helmet? ( I heard Shane Morris is going to be a Michigan lean in '13 and it sounds like he is really talented) Just looking for as much info as I can. Thanks everyone and go blue. also congrats to Zeke. Wouldn't mind if you decided to change your mind.
In other news, Water is Wet.
Bruce Feldman over at ESPN has an article about "College Footballs Strongest Men"
Hulk Smash ranks as his #2:
2. Mike Martin, NT, Michigan Wolverines
The Wolverines defense may have been flimsy, but don't blame Martin. The 298-pounder, a guy who won a high school state wrestling title in his first season competing in the sport, is a freak. He's squatted over 700 pounds, power cleaned 430, hang cleaned 475 and bench pressed over 500. Oh, and he's also run in the 4.9s in the 40.
More positive press for our wolverines on the WWL today. And those are FREAK numbers.

Notre Dame is at the Big House. Iowa has it's own set of problems and no real proven QB. NW? Even with DP back and at full strength they do not pose a threat. Minny? Illini? Sparty is really the only question mark in the first 10 games. We have a very viable chance at being 10-0 going into the Nebraska game. In addition, Neb and tOSU are both at home.
Maybe this is far too optimistic. Maybe not. Consider that we find our running game and have a middling defense. Consider Denard as being equal to last year or better. Also consider that we have potentially one of the best receiving corps in the country. Troy is full steam. JT. Carvin. By the NW game this is going to be a well-oiled machine.
Is this optimistic or realistic?
