Mallet said, "I would have loved to come here out of high school, but the situation wasn't right
and so I thought I made a good decision," Mallett said. "After a year, things changed around there
and I decided it was best to leave."

Well the Pistons stuck around a ten point defict for the entire second half before finally giving way to LeBron and the Cavs, but the Red Wings are taking it to the Blue Jackets!
Datsyuk is a scrappy little bugger.
Osgood has been stellar as of late.
What do all of you think of Jack Kennedy? From where I was, he looked pretty good. He was accurate and mobile. Not as good as Tate probably, but for a walk-on, he seemed to be pretty with it.
And why have we heard very little about him?
Someone recently posted "when are we going to beat OSU again? and I got to thinking: what advantages do they currently have? What advantages do we currently have? Here's what I came up with, feel free to supply your own:
More money because they're willing to sell their soul
An established successful Big Ten champion coach
A whole team recruited by, and suited to their current coach
A better home state to recruit from, with no legitimate in-state challenger
More instances of recent success
More talent and experience currently.
More innovative coach
Much better uniforms/helmet
Better strength and conditioning
Both can recruit nationally
Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see any institutional reason that OSU should own us long-term. Sure they have more in-state talent and less competition for it, but we've been able to steal some good players from Ohio and they rarely can do that in Michigan. I think both teams will be dragged down by the perceived weakness of the Big Ten, as long as we have the BCS. The migration of the American population from the Northeast and Midwest to the Southeast and Southwest will continue to be damaging long-term to the clout of Midwestern schools, but as long as Michigan can keep mining Florida we should be fine.
I've been thinking, and theres couple things to get fans off of there feet and cheer a little more.
During t.v timeouts, its always silent waiting for the game to begin again. Why not have a 'Fan Cam' like all pistons and all other teams that do this. It will get some fans involved into the atmosphere and bring noise (when there on t.v, people tend to cheer).
Also, have the cheerleaders or students go around the stadium shooting up michigan t-shirts to the people who are the loudest. Or give away free pizzas around the stadium to the fans who are the loudest.
When we played music before the game, I seen alot of people dancing and having a good time in the stands. Which brings them to be more outgoing and louder durin the game(spring game).
Beaver stadium gets loud because they have music before game and it gets fans into the game atmosphere. I believe adding all of these little things would be fun and even fun for the kids.
I read a rivals article/interview of Brandon Herron and he had this to say about the following players,
"I'm leaning on Brandon Graham and Obi Ezeh quite a bit, the defensive captains, and also Stevie. I just look up to those guys because of what they have put through the program and just to watch them is inspiration".
I thought RR selected the captains game by game and then at the end of the year chose the captain for that season like an end of season honor. Or does this statement reflect that the season ending captain will be next years captain? Any insight on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
