will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
I guess we will know for sure when they announce it on the next countdown episode.
I think Kovacs is a lock. The question is do we go with all seniors?

I wonder what Kovacs' plans are for after college. With the way that everyone talks about him, it seems that he'd be great to have in the Michigan coaching pipeline.
I'm sure he's going to give the NFL a shot. If he has a good year this year, I can't imagine there wouldn't be a team that wouldn't at least take a chance on him.
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
What a rare and special moment it is when a walk-on becomes a co-captain of the Michigan football team!
"Look Valentine .... whiskey!"
Don't forget Mark Moundros, Captain of the 2010 team and former walk-on.
Lean would be a huge surprise, he graduated a few years ago. In all seriousness though, I doubt Hoke gives it to any non senior, Denard was an exception last year for being the QB. My guess is 16, 32, 21. Maybe BWC instead of Roundtree.
COYS and lets go Detroit FC!
Denard was not a captain last year
Can't believe I misremembered that, could've sworn I saw him walk up for the coinflip... ah well, just goes to show that Hoke loves senior captains.
I think you might be right that he went up for a coin flip once (I had the same feeling) but he wasn't one of the three permanent captains .
Denard was not a captain last year. The captains were Molk, Martin, and Koger.
By the end of the year, Ryan Van Bergen was de facto a captain as well, though the record books won't reflect it.
Yeah he walked out for the Sugar Bowl toss, and I think OSU too
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
There were honorary captains for each game (who would come out for the coin toss with the regular captains). RVB was the honorary captain for the Sugar Bowl, but the MGoBlue game notes don't mention who had that position for the Ohio game. Denard was honorary captain for the Illinois game.
I agree with you about BWC as a captain. Hoke loves his D-linemen.

How often are juniors (even rs juniors) captains?
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
RS Juniors have not been captains too often, but when they are, they usually are Offensive Tackles wearing #77. See Jansen, Jon and Long, Jake, both two-time captains. I bet Lewan follows.
I may be making this up in my head but I swear I remember Mike Hart being a captain as a junior.
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
Were captains in 2006
I got a tweet today saying they were voting today.
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
With all the Facebook and the twitters these days, I am surprised no-one has said something like "I'm so proud of _____, _____, and _____". Unless they were warned not to steal Fauxhawk's thunder.
I'll go with #16,#32 and #65
Bama will be his 30th consecutive start. He's been academic all-conference two years in a row. The guy has gotten it done on and off the field. Not sure he'll get the vote, but definitely an underrated member of what is a fantastic senior class.
It is spelled HOKEAMANIA. Our coach is an ass-kicking American citizen, not one of the Beatles, for Christ's sake!
Roh also is a solid guess.
Denard, Kovacs, and who else? Roundtree, Floyd, Campbell, Demens to name a few.
Photography Facebook Page. Lots of Michigan sports photos. And planes, lots of planes:
If BWC is even being considered thats a great sign that has made huge leaps in the offseason. Like absurdly huge leaps.
16, 32, and 2.
"fumbles the snap, takes off. . ."
Those would also be my guesses. I probably would not have thought of Vincent Smith, but listening to the way his teammates talk about him makes it seem like a realistic possibility with it being a team vote and all.
My surprise candidate is Jack Kennedy.
I would have said JDK and Rey, but Rey is still a junior.
Robinson, JK, and BWC. Raback it.
Lloyd Brady and Tacopants.
Hoke said we are doing away with temporary captains and that we will have permanent captains from now on. They are:

#16, #32, and #73. Is Taylor Lewan a true or red-shirt junior. On a different note, did red-shirt Juniors get to participate in the leadership program this summer in CA?
Lewan is a RS Jr.
I think some RS Jrs were on the leadership trip.

The team photo has Kovacs in the middle, surrounded by Denard and Roundtree. I haven't looked at past pictures to see if this has any special meaning.
Should we point instead of fist pump during the Victors?
You might be onto something here.
Denard, Kovacs and Roundtree. Book it.
what if it was those three and roundtree sported a nice numuro uno Jersey when they hit the field against bama. I would ok with that.
Directions to Columbus: South till you smell it, east till you step in it!
Would make no sense having Roundtree switch to the #1 jersey as he just switched to 21 to honor Desmond. I get the feeling that the 21 has taken the 1 spot.
My feeling is that one is saved for the extra extra special while 21 is just for the special.
Coach Hoke would never trash a tradition like that.
Coach Hoke once told me that a moral victory is still a (expletive deleted) loss.
I don't see it as trashing anything. I see it as the best receiver at the school wore 21 and thus that is the new 1. Really besides a few the 1 jersey was worn by solid receivers but nothing amazing. Hoke is an adapting coach and Brandon is an adapting AD. 21 is the new 1 just best to understand that.
