somehow we're only 124th
Per Twitter, no Maurice Hurst, Willie Henry, Jabrill Peppers, Jake Butt, Dymonte Thomas. I'll update as things become more clear. This is a little worrying:
No Jake Butt on the dress list this week. Suspended "for a violation of team expectations"— Sam Webb (@SamWebb77) November 1, 2014

With the steady stream of threads desiring to bomb the athletic department back to the stone age and the wish to go medieval on certain people, we seem to have glossed over an issue that came out of the Minnesota game.
What is going on with Jabrill Peppers? He was not on the field for the game and when asked about it afterwards, Brady said that he was in the locker room receiving treatment.
I have heard rumors ranging from "teaching him a lesson" to "serious injury". Desmond Howard's take from viewing a practice is that Peppers was the only player on the team who appeared to want to be great.
Does anyone have an update on his status?
Apologies for the OMG SHIRTLESS faithful, but I don't know how to embed instagram shots - but Wolverine247 posted this on Facebook today. Dude was already a monster, and now he is the hulk!
Freshman athlete Jabrill Peppers shows off his improved physique after only a short time with the Michigan strength and conditioning staff.
If someone else can embed, that would be appreciated!
OK, so it's summer, I'm not a big fan of watching the soccer on television, and I'm a teacher...a little bored! But, I happend to come across this picture of Jordan Lewis, Jabrill Peppers, and Terry Richardson and I figured some may be interested.
I'm really excited about how good the DBs can be this year. With Countess and Wilson coming back, Lewis' performance in the spring game, Stribling getting all that experience last year, and Peppers in the mix it should be a very talented group. I don't want to forget about Thomas and Taylor too, so hopefully they both continue to make strides.
I will say this picture does continue to make me question if Peppers is really 6'1". Unless Lewis grew a lot this offseason Peppers looks closer to 5'10". But, Lewis sure looks a lot bigger than 174 lbs weight he's listed at...if Peppers is in fact 210 lbs. I'm gonna hope that Lewis is getting bigger! I think thest two are really good this year!
Brady Hoke said he expects Peppers to get his feet wet on returns to see how he does. He also hints he might get some time with Nuss. I don't think this is any huge revelation. He's a coach and he's going to put him in situations he can handle and be successful. I'm sure he sees the talent and it's hard to get excited.
He also said he's thinks Canteen and Mone to have an impact this year.
Video from Campus Insiders interview is auto play so the link is provided.
It's a day early but since I have to head to that cesspool known as Columbus, OH this later today, I'd like to welcome Jabrill as well as the other freshmen coming to campus this weekend and wish them huge success in their Michigan careers. Go Blue!
