"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
Wishlist for 2008
Dear Football Gods,
I've been a very good fan this offseason. I've been following every news story and blog about our team. And even though I'm 8,000 miles away I plan on making a pilgrimage back to the holy lands this October. Thank you for sending us a savior. (Mike Barwis be his name) And while I was sad that you took away our old coach (Bo), I'm grateful you gave us a 21st century (RR) version to ease the pain.
So, if it would't be too much trouble, please give us the following things this season:
1. A 10 win season
2. An Appalacian state victory over LSU
3. A win over OSU
4. ND losing 9 games
5. Competant QB play
6. No major arrests (no MORE major arrests)
7. Two 4* DE recruits
8. A fourth SuperBowl victory and another MVP award for Tom Brady
9. Good fortune for all M alumni in the NFL (even Ryan Mundy)
Thanks in advance,
