this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I know this may be a little pre-mature, but if you are like me, I can't get enough info regarding our upcoming football season. I cannot take any credit whatsoever for these videos, but they are two pretty good hype videos I found on the internet.
I am an idiot and could not figure out the enbed (even though I have done it before properly.
It will truly be an actual Youth Day experience. The eBay whores will have to find some other way to shamelessly hound Harbaugh for autographs.
Thing has completely done a 180 from what it was in 2011. It was basically an eBay whore gathering that clogged lines, forcing many of actual fans, many of them children, to leave empty-handed as the event didn't last long.
The Michigan Football Youth Day will have a strong emphasis on youth and will include activities around the stadium themed for kids. The traditional autograph session will be held at the concession stands around the concourse.
Youth, eighth grade and younger, that sign up to become members of the Kids Go Blue Club can enter into a contest to ask a question to Coach Harbaugh, Michigan's J. Ira and Nicki Harris Head Football Coach, during the media day portion of the day. Five (5) Kids Club members will ultimately be chosen. Coach Harbaugh will be meeting with media from 12:40-1:10 p.m.
The 2015 team will be introduced on the field in the south end zone to the fans in attendance starting at 1:15 p.m. The players will be introduced by their position coach, and a group photo will be taken at the conclusion of each position group. The official team photo will be taken after the conclusion of the player introductions. Select fans will be allowed on the field during position group photos and will have the opportunity to watch the official team photo as it is taken in the west stands.
Following the conclusion of all photographs, players will make their way to the concourse to sign autographs for 60 minutes. Members of the 2015 team will be seated in the concession stands throughout the stadium concourse. Players will be divided up by position groups and will be positioned around the main concourse.
Members of the Kids Go Blue Club presented by the University of Michigan Credit Union are eligible for exclusive access to the field for team introductions as well as autograph priority. Head coach Jim Harbaugh will sign autographs for a group of select KGBC members on the Mortensen Plaza, located between Michigan Stadium and Crisler Center on the east side concourse.
If it wasn't for UNLV, and instead of UNLV Michigan had, say, a UCF type team (which is coming in 2016, look out), M's schedule might be the toughest this season, but UNLV should provide a major breather.
Utah and BYU are physical, tough tests and Michigan will have to score to beat Oregon State (which hopefully won't be like scaling a mountain given Oregon State's defense).
It's July filler but what else are we going to do right now you guys
@umichfootball tweeted this out
that link leads to a countdown clock on MGoBlue.com
It has the Michigan 150 logo which is commemorating the 150th season of Michigan Athletics, but does anyone have any guesses for what this will be?
The clock will expire on August 1st at 1pm.
Eeeeeeeeeeee! I love it. It's just like getting a really good Christmas present. They're pretty cool looking. They have a light blue background that kind of reminds me of cash.
I would post a picture if I knew how.
For Bo's sake, go check the mail.
Mods delete if this is common knowledge. I received a text from a current player saying, "He (Peppers) was taking reps at slot during player led practice, knew all the plays. He wouldn't know all the plays unless he was told to do so... So take that however you want".
This was exciting for me to hear, gave me a whole Woodson vibe. Again, if this is already known and i'm late to the party please don't harass me too much and mods delete.
