I'd never heard of Cinemagram before I saw this, but this is awesome. I believe that's Dan Gibbs he destroys, then takes on Drake Johnson for the tackle.

Having trouble with the embed, so here's the link.

I am excite!

EDIT: Figured out the embed. Not sure why it's so small though.

EDIT #2: I wanted to capture this in an image, so I got a freeze-frame. I didn't notice Gibbs' leg in Ross' crotch before this.

Visitors this week

Visitors this week

I'm posting this here because it's spring break for a lot of kids and it's a big visit week/weekend. There are lots of big-time prospects coming in this week, including one of the top cornerbacks nationally (Jabrill Peppers), his offered teammate (Juwann Bushell-Beatty), and a guy who's close with the Countess family (Sam Mustipher), along with several other prospects.  Overall, there are about a dozen guys, although visitor lists always fluctuate.

We're making a Penn State version of HTTV and just launched the Kickstarter a few minutes ago: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1700046469/we-are-2013-a-penn-state-preview

Brian's writing the Michigan preview and I'm publishing the thing. I thought I'd post it here for any crossover fans.

Mott Spring Game donation incentives, details announced

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on April 2nd, 2013 at 8:47 PM

Per MGoBlue release-

 

ANN ARBOR -- The 2013 Mott Spring Game presented by PNC Bank in partnership with Michigan Athletics will be held at Michigan Stadium on Saturday, April 13. The Spring Game is free to the public, and Team 134 is set to take the field at approximately 12:30 p.m. EDT.

The gates to the Big House will open at 10 a.m., as events will surround the football team's final spring practice. The fifth annual alumni flag football game is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., while Michigan's men's lacrosse team will face Ohio State, set to begin at 3:30 p.m.

The football scrimmage will be streamed live on BTN2Go beginning at 1 p.m. ET and air on delay at 9 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network.

Meanwhile, Michigan Football and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital have teamed up once again. Since 2010, the Spring Game has raised nearly $1 million for the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

Fans can make a donation of choice to the Mott Children's Hospital upon entering the gates of Michigan Stadium. Donations are accepted at any level but fans will receive giveaways for donating at the following levels, while supplies last:

$5 -- An authentic Spring Game jersey patch identical to those worn by the players during the 2013 Spring Game
$10 -- Spring Game cinch backpack
$20 -- Mott stadium bench seat cushion, approved for regular-season use
$250 -- Four (4) passes to a preseason football practice (tentatively scheduled for Aug. 24) 
$500 -- Brady Hoke autographed football AND four (4) passes to a preseason football practice (tentatively scheduled for Aug. 24)
$1,500 -- Pregame sideline pass for two (2)

Sucks the game won't be on TV. 

Really awesome that the past 3 Spring Games have raised nearly $1 million. Given the lower attendance due to weather.

Both he and Jerry Dinardo were really excited about him on The Football Report.  If you think he was blowing sunshine, he also said that Ohio's DL was struggling, PSU depth was an issue, and our RBs still haven't emerged.  Take it FWIW.

Bellomy tears ACL

In stark contrast to my earlier post, Russell Bellomy has torn his ACL in spring practice. Can't be good news for being able to redshirt Shane Morris, or for QB depth or for Bellomy himself, obviously.

From the official Michigan Football Twitter account, he tore it Friday during practice.

Help w/cleaning up radio audio of Michigan vs. Florida

Help w/cleaning up radio audio of Michigan vs. Florida

Submitted by karpodiem on March 31st, 2013 at 6:11 PM

So I decided to start recording the radio broadcasts after learning we will probably never have a full broadcast of the Kansas game (would have loved to re-live Matt Shepard's call durin the last two minutes). Eventually these audio recordings will be synced up with the HD network broadcasts so we can have hometeam audio + network video. Look for that this coming football season.

The only problem is that mgoblue.com was linking to the CBS national radio broadcast. I couldn't find an internet stream of the local broadcast. I was forced to record the analog broadcast with line-in audio to my PC. The only problem is that you get the constant buzzing/sound interference typical of analog audio. 

Are there any audio gurus out there who might be able to clean up the audio/take the buzzing out? I can cut the commercials out myself, I just need help with taking out the distortion. Here's the .mp3 of the broadcast - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1308556/Michigan%20vs.%20Florida.mp3

 

PS - has anyone been able to find an online stream of Matt Shepard calling the game? If so, where?

thanks.
