2013 Recruiting Map 1.0

Submitted by Rescue_Dawn on August 26th, 2012 at 12:39 AM

 

Here is a map I put together with the recruiting data found in the "useful stuff" tab.  I made a few of these last year, but this is the first one I have done for 2013.  Mainly because I was using a educational copy with a one year license that expired, but I was able to obtain this one through my works "Home Use Program".  

I included the School where the player commited in the labels.....so if you dont see a school name then the player is uncommited.  Here is a direct link if you want to zoom in for a little more details.  Let me know if I happened to mis anything.  I'll try and put out a few more of these in the upcoing weeks.

A Case For Our Defense

A Case For Our Defense

Submitted by jsquigg on August 25th, 2012 at 11:11 PM

It's late Saturday and starting Monday the content will be more pointed, but while we're still stuck wondering how Michigan will do this year I figure I'll make a case for why I think our defense will do very well (I'm bored waiting for the season to start and have been drinking, so if this sucks, neg at will).

I've been reading a lot of the smart football blog and I like his take on hybrid players in a base defense.  Obviously a lot of Michigan's success relies on "staple" players (aka players who play one position typically) like Will Campbell, but when you look at our defense there are a lot of "hybrid" players.  Beyer, Gordon, Clark, Roh, etc. have all played multiple positions to mixed success.  With Mattison at the helm, I think we can stack up against power teams and I really think we are fast enough to play the spread teams pretty well.  I could be wrong, but discuss.

GO BLUE Banner to Travel to Dallas?

Michigan only does the GO BLUE banner jump for home games and I'm guessing they will treat this like more of a bowl game style atmosphere seeing as it is on a neutral site, but is there a possibility the banner will travel with the team to Cowboy Stadium? I'm guessing no but with David Brandon you never know what to expect anymore.
