Ian Bunting: Rapper

Ian Bunting: Rapper

Submitted by Lucky Socks on May 31st, 2014 at 3:36 PM

Continuing in the theme of Michigan athletes who seem to be musically inclined, future Michigan TE Ian Bunting has released a YouTube rap video (per TomVH).  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCPQcu2t8X8

My first reaction was "Oh no....#DatBull."  My second was "this isn't half-bad."  The only explicit content is two s-words, and one F-word so I don't think there will be any controversy here.  I do wonder if he screened it by the coaches before, or just trusted that it is harmless enough to post.

Satellite Camps may not go away

Satellite Camps may not go away

It appears the camps such as Penn State is holding at Georgia State may not be disappearing anytime soon. Penn State is holding a second camp in Florida.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Notre Dame is in discussions to hold a camp at Georgia State in 2015. Link

This is a Yahoo Sports link, but according to the story, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have been holding satellite camps for years in Texas. Boise State has held camps in Houston, LA, Seattle and other areas.

The Yahoo story claims this is coming to light because the SEC has a rule against this which is basically there to protect their turf. It was never an issue until the big schools from outside the prime recruiting territory started the practice.

It sounds to me like this won't change quickly unless the SEC has an awful lot of clout in the changing landscape of college sports. This is a way to help kids that can't afford cross country trips to see the coaching staff in action.

Lots of highly ranked talent to coach, influence and impress. Dantonio and Franklin will be there too. Surely some under-the-radar types to discover. Just some of the '15 talent.

135 years ago today in Chicago. That is when and where Michigan played their first Football game against Racine. They won 1-0 with Irving K. Pond scoring the first "touch down".

Complete account of the game from the Michigan Chronicle

The heat was oppressive, but despite the heat, 500 students students of Racine and citizens of Chicago witnessed, what we may call, the finest game of Rugby foot-ball ever played this side of the Alleghanies.

Ty Isaac Visiting Michigan Next Week

Ty Isaac Visiting Michigan Next Week

Things have been quiet with Ty over the last week or so, but now he's beginning to take visits.  Getting him on campus is a big step in the right direction.  Haven't heard him visiting any other schools besides Michigan and Illinois at this point.

 

RB Ty Isaac's mother tells me Ty is visiting Illinois and also plans to visit Michigan next week.
