"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."

I am a die hard Buckeye fan with the utmost respect for the Michigan program. It kills me when I see all the controversy surrounding your program, especially as of late. But I've been on this board a lot debating whether to get an account or not, and I must say I've enjoyed reading some of your discussions almost more than my fellow buckeye fans on bucknuts.
With that being said, I hope I can get along with you guys on this board.
In regards to Brown. I'm from Fremont. Graduated from Fremont Ross 5 years ago. I've never had the pleasure of meeting or knowing Brown but have seen him play. He is a phenomenal talent but will need to develop physically to play at the next level. He might be 5'11 but looks to weigh around 160lbs soaking wet. I understand he is only a Junior and will have plenty of time to mature and develop. If he does so than I must say, you guys have got a great player in the making.
However. Like I said before, I've never met the kid. But I still have family who attend the school and a few who have played with Brown. From what I've been told (and this was before his commitment to Michigan, no biased here) he is an excellent student, but is a complete and total head-case on the football field. I hope the accusations are false because I would hate to see a player from my high school represent us in a poor way. My advice to you, as a fan base, be excited about his potential but pray that he is able to stay out of trouble. Its not uncommon for Fremont athletes to ruin their opportunities before they have ever unfolded.
Sorry for the long post fellas. Look forward to some good discussion with you guys. Good luck tomorrow!
