These will be for the Westside chairback seating area and for the Eastside outdoor club seating. I spotted these by zooming into one of the stadium tour gallery photos.
I might have preferred a blue that was not so dark, but I did sit in one and they are quite comfortable.
I was also told there would be cup holders ... but it was vague as to where they would be.
Who would you nominate for the next player to wear the coveted #1? I would like to nominate Roy Roundtree for this year. No, he's not the tallest, fastest, quickest reciever we have. He simply makes big plays on the field, and he seems to have a knack for coming up with a great catch when the game's on the line.
After reading the recruiting history thread I got the idea that we need a thread for people to tell old recruit stories that can't be found anymore, exciting, disappointing etc etc. I personally no none but would love hear other's stories.
This is an offer that I was expecting to happen sooner, rather than later. QB Brett Hundley out of Chandler High School, in Arizona, received an offer from Michigan today. "They called my coach, Coach Ewan, and then he told me they had offered," said Hundley.
This one is exciting for me, because it's another Michigan recruit in my home state. I saw Brett play this past season, and he's the real deal. He's a 6-foot-4, 210-pound athletic dual threat quarterback. He says his strengths are, "Leadership, mobility, I'm coachable, and I have a pretty strong arm. I do think I need to work on my footwork, though." I would add that academics are a strong point for Brett, since he carries a 3.9 GPA.
Hundley holds offers now from Arizona, ASU, LSU, Oregon, Nebraska, Stanford, UCLA, Washington, and Michigan just to name a few. He hasn't started to focus on recruiting yet, and told me, "No one's in the lead right now. Everything is wide open for me. I'm going to start taking trips in June, or July. After that I'll start all my officials, when I'm allowed to." When asked if Michigan will receive one of those visits, he said, "I'm definitely going to talk to my dad about that one."
Chandler High is in spring practice right now, and I will be heading out to watch this coming week. I'll have some practice footage, and possibly a video interview sometime later this week.
Hey, so, I've been on this board for awhile now, and using the site for longer. I follow recruiting somewhat closely. It seems to me that recruiting information is much, much more widely available now. That said, some posters seem to have a great deal of knowledge about recruiting in the early 2000s and even the 90s. This is a group of legends and myths that I know nothing about, as I was too young to really care that much at the time-the first recruit I recall reading about was Mike Hart, in the Ann Arbor News. I was just wondering. . .where does this all come from? How was recruiting covered in the past, and how do those of you in the know find out stories that the general public doesn't seem to know?
As an example, I hear cryptic mentionings of a lot of recruitments, but never full stories of what happened. Carlos Brown is a good example; Ronald Johnson is a bad one.
According to an article on Rivals Jordan Paskorz has already put on 11 pounds since his signing day weight of 225. Article also talks about him qualifying for states in the shot put. Good to see him putting on weight and good luck at states!
