I also think that being a Michigan Wolverine means to BE GREAT. Yes it's a blast to see how great our 14 combine representatives are doing. But I have a lot of pride in not only how they played on the field but how they've carried themselves off the field and in front of the cameras. Integrity, humility and class. That cant' be said for a lot of programs and a lot of conferences.
Of course, we can't expect these young men to be perfect all the time but they are under the spotlight and have really carried the banner and lifted this school. I can't wait to see which teams they end up with and I'm positive we will be hearing from of lot of these guys after their playing careers are over. Of course I'm biased as an avid supporter for over 40 years.
At Michigan, we have a higher standard. We should have a higher standard. We've definitely had some ups and downs over the years. But it makes me proud to wear the block M when I travel frequently across the country.
From the standards in the classroom, to the excellence on every sporting field, to even the small things like this blog rallyiing for anonymous strangers in need. Supporting our teams and coaches and fans for the hands down best University in the World, makes me proud.
IT'S GREAT TO BE A MICHIGAN WOLVERINE!
edit. I realize the error of my ways. Was watching the combine reports and feeling some pride. But I forgot this board was full of menly men who are here to anonymously rip every post they read. Lesson learned. Will keep my thoughts about my school to myself. (go blue?). Neg away!! You show great power in doing so!!
Coach Jay Harbaugh just released a short video of his proposal to his girlfriend, now fiancee.
All the best
Pretty cool video feature on Peppers
It's generally a slow football news time, aside from the NFL Combine. But since it's the off-season, I posted a guide this morning to what I look at when watching offensive tackle prospects. It's mostly centered around Michigan recruits/players.
Who's the best left tackle prospect in the 2018 class? I haven't had enough time to look at all the candidates.
