Congrats to both you and Will! My son is 10 days old today (I posted a little further down)...it's been a fun week-and-a-half. Twins...man, I'm stressed out just thinking about what that might be like. Best of luck to you, my friend!
If you guys start up any kind of a MGoHandMeDown thing, keep me in the loop. Or even just some sort of private-ish conversational exchange...advice, encouragement, laughs, whatever. That is all - I'm done talking about non-football for now.

I knew I needed to make a list, and this is a pretty comprehensive start. It also really hit home that I'll need tell him about Denard - it'll be past tense for him a few years from how. Man, I'm going to miss that guy. "Why'd they call him 'Shoelace', Dad...?"

1) The MGoMrs had our first kid (a boy!) last week, so this weekend will likely be pretty tame and sleep-deprived. I'm already making plans with another M fan to start getting this boy indoctrinated into all things Michigan. First up, a viewing of Woodson's interception against MSU. Seemed like a good place to start. Hopefully he'll be in the class of 2020, likely a tackle or heady LB. (Div 3 OT here...but you always hope for better for your kids.)
2) I've not backpacked before.
3) I know one other - knew him already.
4) Velveeta on Wonder Bread, RIP. Now, American on wheat with turkey and some tabasco tossed in.

I'd think the maturity/integrity part might rule out Max Bullough too, though I'm sure he was extra-tenacious when attempting to elude those Colorado officers last year. Oh well...glad we have Kovacs. Good story, him.

It appears that the Glasgows are from Marmion Military Academy. As a football alumni of the Suburban Catholic Conference - now the Suburban Christian Conference - myself, I can tell you that he played in the same conference as our own Kyle Bosch. (As well as Nebraska '12 4* WR Jordan Westerkamp.) You'll recognize one conference member - Montini Catholic - as the team that Ty Isaac ran roughsod over in last year's state championship game. Other notable alums of the conference are Bryan Bulaga and Brad Childress.
Not bad for a group of relatively small schools. I'm sure this is useless information for a lot of you, but as a former Div. 3 OL, I'm proud to see these schools producing some quality OL - and passing them along to the B1G.

Given his blistering 40-yard-dash at the combine, maybe they pick up Martin as a slot guy. God help the safety that tries to blow him up over the middle.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Agreed||
I'd agree with this. Additionally, there is going to be a ton of pressure on RGIII to perform with minimal talent around him. This doesn't tend to lend itself to success.
I agree with the earlier poster - with the extra picks, STL could be very dangerous in the coming years...if they play their cards right. And Fisher will.

But I hope this gentleman has already completed his procreatin'.

New poster here, but been reading/enjoying for a while.
Played HS football (same conference as Kyle Bosch), four years of D3 football, one year as a D3 assistant coach. Then I had to get a real job. I didn't go to Michigan, but have been a lifelong fan on account of my family being from Michigan. I decided I'd rather play football in college, but was too small for any D1 offers. So now I guess I'm a "Walmart Wolverine". Whatever.
Looking forward to being a part of the community. You dudes are hilarious.
