Q. So it's the birth of a new team?
A. Yeah, it's like coming out of the mother's womb. You're in a nice, warm, cozy environment -- safe. And now you are out into the chaos and bright lights. It's a happening. It's all those things rolled into one.
And it's also like the first day of school. You're so excited for that first day of school, and the night before you set out your clothes, you stuff your lunch into a lunch box, and off you go. It's the start. It's laying down a benchmark. Now we have a place to start from. We have a place to improve from. We have a place to go forward from, and you hope to lay that benchmark halfway up the mountain -- and not way down on the flat land.
Get yourself pumped for start of Spring Practice with the MGoBlue video featuring Jabrill Peppers
While Harbaugh certainly will have a better idea what his personnel is like and where the puzzle pieces will fit, expect him to come up with a depth chart written in easily erasable pencil by the end of spring practices.
Perhaps more important for the players the next few weeks is to display a level of toughness Harbaugh enthusiasts believe he instantly will bring. Playing with toughness is something that has distinguished Harbaugh teams in the past, and unquestionably he intends to instill that at Michigan.
Here's a look at what to watch during the spring:
"(Meyer) said he didn't know about (Drayton) leaving, that it was a last minute thing. The most important thing about my 'misleading' part was that I didn't really understand the process of recruiting behind Ohio State. I truly do now.
I understand the ambition Urban Meyer has, I understand the integrity of Urban Meyer and I understand that he's about the welfare of the child and the wholeness of what the athletes need at the university. He instilled in me that no child will be left behind in his program.
We did meet. We did talk. And he is the person I thought he was and the person I believe him to be. I believe our relationship is stronger now."
-Thomas Wilcher (cited)
I figured the board may be interested given how Coach Wilcher had previously blasted Urban Meyer about the Mike Weber/Stan Drayton situation:
"I think Urban Meyer will have to step his game up; we're going to have to talk," Wilcher told Detroit Sports 105.1 in a long interview. "He has come to my school and got the No. 1 athlete two years in a row. You cannot come over here, come up to the north, and walk out of here with your pockets full and not give us respect."
This will be the second time he has visited in less than a week. Perhaps a flip is in order in the near future (he's currently a Louisville commit)?
Hi all! Your friendly MGoEyeInTheSky here for another update!
Last time I showcased some drone shots from Wisconsin, Bowling Green, Toledo, and a hazy shot of Purdue.

The sunset in Minneapolis just happened to line up perfectly with TCF Bank Stadium and downtown.
A not-crappy-rainy shot of Purdue!
Indiana's Memorial Stadium:
Since this weekend, I think a drone shot of Crisler is appropriate!
I also made a video montage of all the stadiums I've flown at, shot to the tune of some Michigan Marching Band:
(Sorry, been a user here far too long to not learn how to embed).
I've appropriately changed my Twitter handle to MGoDrone where I post lots of drone and Michigan stuff.
This will conclude a lot of my sports traveling for the season but I should be back in the Fall (assuming my drone doesn't get damaged beyond repair).
