a vitally important recap of all the dumb tweets sent during the Harbaugh coaching search
While I'm not going to give away the full bit on the kicking situation that was posted on Scout, I will say that Andrew David is 3rd on the depth chart.
Kind of disappointing and worrying. Especially since the staff passed on Quinn Nordin.
That's all I really can post without giving away the full bit of information on who will be the kicker.
According to a Utes sportswriter, Utah fans are planning to distribute Alex Smith heads around the stadium for the game.
Word on the street is Alex Smith heads will be randomly distributed throughout RES. Welcome to Utah, Harbaugh.— Holli Alexa (@Holli_Alexa) August 28, 2015
I'm unclear as to what the dig is supposed to be - Harbaugh is widely credited with turning Alex Smith's career around. Perhaps they are trying to overwhelm Harbaugh with examples of his good coaching?
At any rate, this does make me want to see the Utes go down more than I already did. They seem pretty dismissive of Michigan as a whole (which I can't blame them for given our last couple of meetings).
Hey everyone! I understand Adidas' contract with Michigan still has one more season to go but I was under the impression that Nike started making gear/apparel for us. I also thought I had seen they began distributing some items but I can't seem to find them. My wife and I have been searching the MDen website for the new Nike sweathshirts/t-shirts for the fall but it all still seems to be Adidas. I am likely missing the obvious explanation but as I've googled and searched the internet and can't come up with an answer, I was hoping mgoblog could help me out.
Does anyone know when the MDen or other sites will begin stocking/selling the Nike gear? Are we still stuck with the Adidas clothes until the fall of 2016? Thanks for any help!
until Jim Harbaugh leads Michigan to a victory in Rice-Eccles Stadium against the Utah Utes. 4 DAYS!!!
Somebody put together a cool video on youtube that compiled lots of newsclips, press conferences, etc spanning from Shane's concussion, to Brandon's "resignation," through to Harbaugh coming home to Ann Arbor. It's over an hour long, but I enjoyed watching it and reliving the many ups and downs we went through from October to now. Can't wait for Thursday night.

As the season grows closer and closer my obsessive need for content has increased exponentially. I came across this interview from Jake Rudock and found it very interesting and very sad. It is just another example at the ineptitude of the previous coaching staff.
At the 0:55 second mark, he was asked about how he's been in 3 or 4 different offense's in 4 years and he interjects with this gem,
"That's Shane. He's learned like 5, or 6, or 10, or 20."
All of the interviewers laugh and I even let out a chuckle but as I thought about it further, my heart just started to ache.
My heart aches because 1) I think I may have either stable angina or psychogenic chest pain secondary to the panic attacks and hyperventilating from watching the past several years. Either one sucks. 2) I feel so terrible for these young men. They commit to a program and sacrifice so much day in and day out for the team, all while trying to earn a degree on top of it. I played college football in AZ so I know what it is like to go through that.
I know these players are now getting the teaching and coaching that they truly need and deserve. I feel terrible for those that never got the chance to be coached by actual competent coaches in the past 7 years and even more props to those that stayed through all of the garbage.
Here’s to a bright season and even brighter future of Michigan Football. Cheers!
