the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
Spring Rosters Hooray!
The Spring Rosters are out, hooray, hooray, the spring rosters are out, hooray! Let's totally overanalyze them and make outrageous statements! (Note: Outrageous statements are outrageous. Truly truly truly outrageous)
Early Enrollees With #s:
|No.||Name||Pos.||Ht.||Wt.||Hometown (High School)|
|35||Joe Bolden||LB||6'3||230||Cincinnati, Ohio (Colerain)|
|49||Kaleb Ringer||LB||6'1||225||Clayton, Ohio (Northmont)|
|22||Jarrod Wilson||S||6'2||190||Akron, Ohio (Akron Buchtel)|
Jarrod Wilson shares a number with Michigan's last competent free safety (until last year?). This totally means: He will be Jamar Adams except fast like Ty Law.
Dudes who changed positions (you know some of these already):
|No.||Name||Old Pos||New Pos|
This totally means: Jibreel Black isn't Brandon Graham, or maybe he is but it's what we'd do if we had Brandon Graham today. Brennan Beyer is Craig Roh. Craig Roh Woodley!
Dudes who changed numbers:
|Name||Old #||New #||Pos||Ht.||Wt.||Elig.|
|Russell Bellomy||3||8||QB||6'3||189||RS FR|
|Paul Gyarmati||59||99||LB||6'1||216||RS SR|
This totally means: Russell Bellomy is like Drew Henson PLUS ONE! Or...I dunno. Here's previous multi-year QBs to wear #8: Nick Sheridan, Jim Breaugh, and a guy who went to school with my brother.
Others guys who didn't return (class is what they would have been this year)
|60||Alex Schwab||DT||SR 5th||6'1||241|
|28||Matthew Cavanaugh||S||SR 5th||5'10||190|
|35||Jordan Barpal||WR||SR 5th||5'10||166|
|93||Kris Pauloski||PK||RS JR||6'3||204|
|32||O'Neil Swanson||RB||RS JR||5'10||162|
|96||Jeremy Ross||PK||RS SO||5'5||150|
This totally means: Gibbons YOU PUT IT THRU THE UPRIGHTS BRUNETTES!
Walk-ons you never heard of before:
|No.||Name||Pos.||Ht.||Wt.||Elig.||Hometown (High School)|
|13||Alex Swieca||QB||6'1||210||RS FR||New York, N.Y. (The Frisch School)|
|27||Jonathan Keizer||WR||6'5||205||RS FR||Portage, MI (Portage Northern)|
This totally means: Portage gets another shot. Hi Cat!
Baquer Sayed appears on the roster this year as well. For some reason he was on my old 2011 roster but didn't make it into the Bentley Records. Speaking of Bentley Records, WEIGHT GAIN 2012...oh. Nevermind, they haven't changed anything.
Here's Incredibly Svelt Miguel Cabrera instead.
