“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Just a quick note here that Illinois DE Michael Buchanan, who will be a senior this year and is expected to be the anchor piece of the Illinis d-line, broke his jaw in a fight. IT is wired shut to heal.
My cousin had to have his jaw surgically broken to correct a breathing problem and had it wired to heal. Despite excellent nutritional science, you'll still lose weight if you can't eat, and lose weight he did. About 40 lbs in the 6 weeks or so he had to be wired shut.
I'm thinking Buchanan isn't going to be at playing weight till October at the earliest, and he'll probably have lost a good deal of strength and stamina too. Bad sign for Tim Beckman's first year?
