To celebrate Coach Hoke's birthday, I'd like to ponder the most homerish, positive outlook for the remainder of the season.
What if we won out, including a bowl game? I realize it's pie in the sky and I'm punch drunk from watching a Michigan running back actually, you know....RUN. But what if we found the missing piece with Drake, other players got healthy, and we built on Saturday's game to take a 3 game win streak into the Shoe?
What if the unthinkable happened and we beat Oiho St, won our bowl game, and finished 8-5?
Does Hoke & staff come back in 2015?
EDIT: Because there seems to be some confusion, the question is IF we win out. Consider it a hypothetical, if you will.
Michigan hires Steve Mariucci.
Tom Izzo's head explodes. Discuss.
Enjoy Thursday night football!
Im sure some other people must have also received this email a few minutes ago but it looks like they are send out options for season tickets next year if you bought a 2014 Go Blue or Family Pack of tickets.
You are guaranteed up to two (2) 2015 Michigan Football season tickets if you choose to purchase them.
• Up to two (2) season tickets may be purchased
• Seats will be assigned in the end zone
In early September, we will follow up with you to see your interest in becoming a Season Ticket Holder.
Thanks again for your support of Michigan Football.
We look forward to seeing you this season, and hopefully next season too!
Its pretty tempting with the schedule next year but I live near Grand Rapids and think 7 trips to Ann Arbor is a little much. Also im a fan of sitting mid level in the corners or sidelines and not being stuck in row 70+ endzone.
Word just got out that Sam Miletic, a presumed 2015 kid, has committed to Michigan
Proud to say I've committed to play hockey at the University of Michigan! #goblue— Sam Miletic (@SamMiletic) July 5, 2013
The Bloomfield Hills, Michigan native played for Cranbook this past season and had 10 goals and 10 assists in 11 games. ... Russ Bitely ranked Miletic among the ‘B’ players at last summer’s USA Hockey Select 15 Player Development Camp
I forget what exactly A vs B vs C indicates but I think it generally means the guy is expected to be a NHL pick at this point. Seems like a really solid pick up to go with Brendan Warren and Kyle Connor (who just got picked for a USA U-18 tournament team) The 2015 hockey class is shaping up to be very very good at this point.
Edit: Oops, forgot Nick Boka for 2015 too. He is also projected to be a 'B' player and is on the US Under-17s. Go Blue
According to Tremendous (link here), Diamond Stone—the number 2 basketball recruit (according to both ESPN and Scout) in the 2015 class—will be visiting Ann Arbor for the Michigan-Michigan State game this weekend. Although it's still very early in his recruitment, this is great way for Michigan to get a good early impression, and this could lead to another huge pick up for the MBB squad.
