Derrick Green reaffirms Michigan as his leader

Per Mike Farrell in this video: LINK

He also says he's not even sure who is contending with Michigan right now. I haven't done more than exchange one word texts with Derrick pretty much since his official visit, but it shouldn't be a surprise they're leading. 

Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year.

@S_Morris12 @quaydiddy2206 @lm3beats I'm sure a pick six would feel better if L3 was flashing a block M after he brought it back?

Not much to go on, but I did find it interesting FSU was the first to admit him as a mid-term student.  Plus looks like he is FOR SURE enrolling early, so we should know by Friday where he's going.

So, here's a quick Outback Bowl wallpaper for you all featuring "Captain Gibbons" and his parrot.  This was a fun wallpaper to make, so I hope you enjoy it and get a chuckle out of seeing Gibbons as his boyhood dream.  Now, let's kick some South Carolina/SEC ass!

Lions Ownership Discussing Firing Jim Schwartz

Lions Ownership Discussing Firing Jim Schwartz

Submitted by MGoVoldemort on December 30th, 2012 at 11:52 AM
ESPN's Chris Mortenson (contradicting an earlier report by Michigan's own Adam Schefter) is reporting that Lions ownership is having discussions about firing Schwartz. They're reportedly concerned with the severe off the field image hit the team has taken of late, along with the obvious disappointment of finishing 4-12 after a playoff year. @ProFootballTalk: A week after Schefty said Jim Schwartz is safe, Mort says Schwartz could be fired http://t.co/ipOhrlr3 Personally, I'd just clean house and show Mayhew the door as well. Mayhew put this roster together, and has to shoulder as much blame as anyone. Also, if his draft record is to come into focus, he has clearly been unable to add starters in the secondary, line backing, or the offensive line. I think the playoff appearance last year masks a lot of porous drafting.

Put them together because they all overlap, and who wants to flip from thread to thread for each game? Particularly when we all stop watching at 7 pm for the Michigan basketball open thread. BWW thread later should be separate because lots of people will watch the Spartans late night after our game vs. Central. If a mod thinks we need 3 threads for games on ESPN and the Deuce at the same time he can break it up.
