Nice to see the North Carolina pipeline building up again. Stribling is from the same high school as Jamar Adams and my alma mater as well. Good to see Hoke rekindling some southern roots.

Unfortunately I did not attend of UofM, is there any way of me getting a plate? I live in Charlotte and have friends that would be interested.

No I didn't go to UM, hell I barely got into college, my family is not from Michigan and I know noone personally who went to UM, but growing up in Greensboro, NC I grew up next to a family from suburban Detroit and every Saturday I found myself sitting next to my friends Dad watching the Maize and Blue, Mercury Morris's touchdown catch against Virginia, Woodson's one hand pick against Sparty and that magical 1997 squad. I learned about how proud the Wolverine tradition is, listening to my neighbor's father talk about meeting Bob Ufer and how magical it was to hear him call a game. So in the heart of Tarheel country surrounded by Carolina blue, I started wearing the Maize and Blue. Most people want to know why I'm a fan and I tell the story of my youth, and when I heard the Victors for this first time in Jacksonville last year at the Gator Bowl, I felt at home. There have been some dark times as many of my friends went to Appalachian State, but the moment I knew I was Maize and Blue for life was when Coach Carr walked in to my high school English class while on a recruiting trip for Jamar Adams, the man I had watched walk the Michigan sidelines as a kid was real and in front of me. So every Saturday in the fall when Carolina fans put on their sweatervests and drink wine waiting for basketball season, I sit in a sea of Carolina blue wearing the Maize and Blue rooting for everything and anything Michigan.

Kalambayi, is from my neck of the woods and Butler High School used to have connections with Carr as he pulled Jamar Adams in 04'. However the head football coach has moved on to greener pastures and I don't know too much about the new coach over there. One thing to mention that Kalambayi is an extremely bright kid in the classroom. Hopefully Mattison can reopen the pipeline into NC and grab some recruits from a reeling UNC program and over-committing SEC programs that have taken the most of the states best recruits elsewhere over the past few years.

Nothing like the smell of vomit on Bourbon Street on a humid January in Nawlins. Geaux Blue.

Sobbing with tears of happiness naked on my recliner in the mountains of NC, my cell hasn't stopped buzzing since the last play. Great day to be a Wolverine. HAIL! CUE THE MUPPETS.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Flashback to 04'||
Man just had a flashback of looking up in my high school English class from a mid class snooze session during one of the Greek tradegies and looking at Coach Carr and English standing at the front of my classroom. I nearly fell out of my desk, and of course the girl next to me whispered "Are we getting searched for drugs?" That's what I get growing up for growing up in North Carolina, anyways I still have that piece of drool stained notebook paper Coach English and Coach Carr signed for me, it was worth the trip for them too, they ended up sealing the commitment of a safety by the name of Jamar Adams. Still a top 3 life highlight for me. Sure wish we had English still roaming the sidelines though.

Now that is a way to start off a Sunday, but this class has the feel of hard nose Michigan football of old that I have been pining for. Unbelievable class already and to think 6 months ago I was sitting in Jacksonville with cowbells ringing in my ears watching a hapless Michigan team get pounded into the ground by Miss. St. As a Bud Light would say it best. "Here We Go".

With the terrible taste of RR pie still in my mouth, I'm going to say hell no, but I think the more important question would be what D coordinator would be coaching with this coach, Robinson had a less than stellar track record at Syracuse and looked lost in the 3-3-5 scheme.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||I couldn't remember if I was||
I couldn't remember if I was more relieved we won the illinois game or angry that we gave up 65 points and 2 touchdowns on the exact same swing pass to leshoure in that game. What a wild season. Hopefully this year the D will start getting back to business.

SMU blatantly had no regard for the rules they knew they were breaking, they were winning and winning big. Though tOSU wasn't as bad as SMU in breaking the rules it still has that mantra "Win at all costs".
