"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
Friendly reminder. Today is the last day for season ticket holders to renew. In addition, single game tickets will go on sale May 8 and May 11 for Michigan Alumni. Lifetime members can purchase May 8th and the rest May 11th.
A man we once knew as one of the worst safeties in Michigan's history (although he finished his senior season as a pretty good SLB) continues a pretty solid NFL career as a safety, signing with the Texans.
As a Texans fan, I like it. But rumors are we're looking to trade DJ Swearinger, which seems like a waste on such a young player.
Looks like with that crazy-ass Harbaugh gone, Alex Boone feels free to just slack off (from ESPN):
REPORT: 49ERS OG BOONE NO-SHOW AT CAMP
San Francisco guard Alex Boone intends to skip the team's voluntary activities in the final year of his contract, according to the CSNBayArea website, and he'll forfeit a $50K workout bonus.
Commence chest beating, talks of "betting the mortgage", "easy money", and general over analyzing. One of the few shreds of football stuff until August!
Personally think that is pretty generous - the home team usually gets 3 pts so it's basically saying the teams are a wash on a neutral field. Based on the last meeting in the Big House, that's already a big improvement! I was thinking it would be more like 5.5 pts but UM is obviously a name team that gets a lot of money thrown at it. Whittingham has lost some staff from last year but Utah is generally a very sound team full of well coached 3 star mafia and quite tough at home - beat Rose Bowl Stanford even in a down year (2013).
Other fun lines - Minnesota is a 19.5 home dog vs TCU in their rematch from last year - TCU should be ranked top 3 in most polls going into the year. Wisconsin is a 12.5 home dog v Alabama - wait did no one watch the Big 10 domination of the bowl season? Notre Dame is favored by 12.5 at home v Texas. OSU is a whopping 20.5 favorite on the road vs VATech - man that's a lot of points in the first game of the year, on the road, vs a team that usually presents a good defense. Seems like best bet to take the points.
