I love this man and his vision for the Michigan program…EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I enjoyed this one a little more.
It shows what their real "One Focus" is...
welcome to the new millenium.
Michigan has absolutely NOT been known as having the best conditioned athletes in all of college football. It's been common practice for years for NFL teams to draft Michigan players higher than they grade out based on the knowledge that many of them have not been training properly.
Also, Michigan does not have more active players in the NFL than any other school. They have a lot and they are up there, but they do not have the most.
imagine a normal pushup position, lying on the ground flat. He then takes his arms and puts them stretched out over his head like he was going to dive into a pool. With one hand on top of the other he would do a push up. It was sick.
Mike Barwis is the man kicking Michigan into shape and the current century....thus, he deserves a refreshment bar and a new 400,000 dollar entry way to the new practice facility.
Hell-if it was up to me the guy would get a blank check. Go Blue.
