"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
Well it was reported Monday that Nate Sudfeld was out for the year with a shoulde separation. In normal circumstances you have an experienced backup but Sudfeld's 2 backup QBs from last year both transferred out of Indiana. So Kevin Wilson was turning to a converted freshman linebacker who went 4-11 for something like 41 yards last week. Apparently THAT guy is not going to play either... so Indiana is most likely going to rip a redshirt off a true freshman Zander Diamont. He is listed as 3rd string. Guy weighs 175 lbs. Pray for him.
Once he gets injured vs MSU their 4th string is a redshirt sophomore.
No idea why Covington is out at this moment or if its long term or short term.
With the rumors of the Brandon's impending removal starting to get downright frothy, the CC talk becomes even more likely.
One candidate that's getting a lot of attention is Todd Graham. He's got a great track record, though some question his loyalty after a one-year stint at Pitt. But my question has a lot more to do with culture...could a guy who sounds like Graham and says things like this in the locker room (following the hail mary win over USC):
The good Lord blessed us. Let me tell you something: Give the glory where it should be. There's no doubt in my mind.
A bad haircut, a thick southern accent, and giving the glory to God after a win...would Michigan embrace this man? I am not passing judgment on him--I'm in favor of Graham being considered. I'm just curious to read what the board thinks.

title says all.
I came across an SI article on Max Redfield, a star safety for Notre Dame who was once committed to USC. What's funny is his (spot on) quote about life at ND.
"“I knew it was going to be rough,” says Redfield, who committed to Notre Dame at the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game. “Nightlife would be a lot worse, the women would be a lot worse, the weather -- a lot worse. But it’s a business decision. I know for a fact it will pay off in the future even though it’s rough now.”
