2012 Michigan football
All you Washington, DC area-based Wolverines will have a chance to see Mr. Gallon when the inaugural season of the AFL's DC Valor kicks off this April. It was announced Jan 12 that he is on the Valor's roster.
I was a big fan of Gallon's time at the Big House and who can forget his amazing performance against ND in the night game. A true Michigan man. Look forward to seeing him resume his pro career stateside and I hope he gets called back up to the NFL one day soon.

Saw this on facebook - its like a home program. Really liked the video highlights of every game as I got to relive the season.
One of the topics that always seems to go missing every year among the discussions of returning starters, and incoming true freshmen is which RS freshman (class of 2011 recruit) will make the biggest contribution to the team this year? IMO, they are just as unknown as the true freshmen, but have as much experience is the system an many of the Sophs.
So, who wants to put together a rundown of the RS freshmen for the 2012 season?
Detroit News reports that on Wednesday, the UM football team is heading for Ford Field in Detroit to practice for the season opener at Cowboys Stadium. It will be a practice, not a scrimmage. Hoke feels practicing at Ford Field will give his team a chance to get used to that dome environment.
In the article, Hoke states "(We will) practice with some situational, two-minute (drills), put the high-pressure stuff on them..."
"We're going to go down there and change up the environment a little bit,... and have some distractions that are built in when you do that. We've been doing some crowd noise. I think AC/DC was on today when we did some first-down stuff."
