"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Part of MGoBlue's 'Amaizing Sounds' series. Pretty cool seeing and hearing Fred coaching and correcting different things
What an outstanding gesture of support by this young man. Who cares what Sherman said?
Hmmm, embed didn't work - here is the link:
Didn't see this on the blog from yesterday...
Nice article (paywalled) by Chantel yesterday on Wyatt Shallman. He appears to be quite the character (and high character) and also comes from a "talented" family...
The article is paywalled:
RB/DE Wyatt Shallman
Novi (Mich.) Detroit Catholic Central, 6-3, 250, Class of 2013
CONSIDERING: Committed to Michigan.
PERFORMANCE: Eight tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble.
WHAT IMPRESSED: Shallman is being recruited to Michigan for offense, but he also plays defensive end for his high school team. Coming off a hamstring injury, Shallman has showed he is still a force, even if he's not 100 percent. -- Tom VanHaaren
Wyatt Shallman made the list for his defensive abilities. It will be interesting to see what position he ends up at in college.
Rather a slow day (really, the last week overall, save for the burst of posts regarding the NFL Draft) here, so I thought I would share this...
Tremendous recently did an excellent interview with 2013 commit Wyatt Shallman. You can read the full interview here:
I would, however, like to quote the well-worded start of the summary, which caps what I think is one of the best interviews by Tremendous to date:
"Wyatt is a multi-faceted guy who is already developing a chip on his shoulder coming into this season. For Michigan, he'll be a running back. Any talk otherwise should end now and I think he's ready to prove some people wrong."
