“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
So Dave Brandon interviewed Sumlin, but wanted a "Michigan man" and we got Hoke. Starts around the 39 minute mark.
After the Minnesota game on Saturday, I remember reading or hearing something about the team calling a players-only meeting for Sunday. Does anyone know if that actually wound up happening or did that get pushed aside by the Concussion-Gate shitstorm? Looking for a sign that there may be some semblance of leadership left on this team.
Weeeeee! Congrats Brandon and Hoke! A US Congressman from NJ, who is chair of the Congressional Brain Injury Caucus, wants the B1G to investigate UM and the handling of Morris' concussion. Man, this athletic department is so great handling a PR crisis! Glad the President and the Regents are around to address the shitstorm!
With the steady stream of threads desiring to bomb the athletic department back to the stone age and the wish to go medieval on certain people, we seem to have glossed over an issue that came out of the Minnesota game.
What is going on with Jabrill Peppers? He was not on the field for the game and when asked about it afterwards, Brady said that he was in the locker room receiving treatment.
I have heard rumors ranging from "teaching him a lesson" to "serious injury". Desmond Howard's take from viewing a practice is that Peppers was the only player on the team who appeared to want to be great.
Does anyone have an update on his status?
With all of the turmoil swirling around I thought I would start two part thread related to hopefully things outside the fiasco going on in the Athletic Department.
1.) Does Michigan have any chance on Saturday with everything going on?/ What does the team need to do to come away with a MUCH MUCH NEEDED W?
- I think we do have a chance and I think the team is going to come out with and put the anger and turmoil around them to work on the field. Obviously when looking toward a W, the easiest thing to do it to look at the offense and say "What are theygoing to do/need to do?" With Devin presumably coming back to play It'd be nice to see us simplify the offense... Easy Zone read option running plays, letting Devin get confidence with his legs and easy 1 to 2 read passing plays and take all of the decision making and time out of the equation.
2.) I also want to take an opportunity for people/fans to throw out support to the football players.
- Thank you to the University of Michigan Football Players and all you put yourselves through. I personall enjoy watching every opportunity I get. Thanks for putting yourselves on the line and putting forth effort into something 99.9% of us all wanted to but never had the chance to do. What you do is appreciated.
I am a Michigan fan from Philadelphia, PA. I did not attend Michigan, nor do I have any affiliation to the school and/or state. I love the University of Michigan. Anyone one who knows me knows of my affection for the university. While I have never been more embarrassed of those running the program, I have never been more proud of the fan base and students of the university.
When Joe Paterno was fired from Penn State there were riots in the streets, not because of outrage stemming from the events leading up to his dismissal, but because of blind support of the football program and coach.
We all know what happened during the game Saturday and the gross mismanagement of the situation since. Here is the reaction.
