also duty-free guys falling over and grabbing their shins
I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I was intrigued by Hoke mentioning a few times during fall camp videos that they're now using GPS. I found an article on the Bristol website that talks about Florida State's use of the technology to help manage things like the pace of practice, obvious measurables (a player's running speed for example), etc. The article talks about a reduction in the number of soft tissue injuries that players suffered due to use of GPS. I think Hoke talked about Jake Butt for example and how he is favoring his injured knee less and less as he continues the rehab process. Hopefully the football team will be able to put this data to good use as it relates to performance on Saturday afternoons.
For those of us who just like our Michigan Football info as soon as it's available, the press conference in its full glory:
If reports are correct Mason Cole would be just the 4th true freshman to ever start a game on the OLine for Michigan.
As far as I can tell ...Tom Dixon (one game, 1980), Dean Dingman (three games, 1987) , Bubba Paris (two games, 1978) and gasp Justin Boren, are the only U-M true freshmen to make a start on the offensive line.
Was just reading a feature on MGoBlue, and as I clicked onto another sport the website looked completely different.
More social media, more ads.
Thoughts? I liked the all-Maize and Blue look better.
Sorry if this is a dumb thread.....one was posted on the last redesign and I don't know, I'm into graphic and web design since I'm going to school for it.
Grantland's Holly Anderson has put together their Big Ten Season PREVIEW. It's a good read (I'm a fan of her writing in general, so I'm biased), and contains the obligatory jab at Michigan re: Appalachian State below. She also pronounces Tim Beckman to be on the hottest of seats, which makes sense given his abysmal record even by Illinois standards and away games at Washington, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Ohio State.
Early Must-Watch Game, Nonconference Category Appalachian State returns to Michigan in Week 1, producing a problematic set of circumstances in which Michigan will have to win by gobs and gobs of points to put the ghosts of 2007 to rest, and in which even if the Wolverines trounce the Mountaineers, we’re going to have to talk about it, because of that one time they did not. Also of interest: Michigan at Notre Dame in Week 2, and Nebraska at Fresno State in Week 3.
