Reminder

The Raycom College All-Star Classic, with Roy Roundtree playing for the Stripes team (wearing number 89; being coached by Head Coach Dan Reeves and wide receivers coach Keenan McCardle; and catching passes from Iowa’s James Vandenberg and Purdue’s Robert Marve - but playing in a red uniform, perhaps as a tribute/throwback to his Trotwood-Madison HS playing days), will be played today in Montgomery, Alabama (TV: CBS Sports Network at 3 PM) Link to the game’s website:http://collegeallstargame.com/

The East-West Shrine All-Star Game, with Will Campbell playing for the West team (wearing number 73) along with ex-Wolverine Dann O’Neill (Western Michigan offensive tackle) will be played today in St. Petersburg (TV: NFL Network at 4 PM) Craig Roh had been listed on the game’s roster, but he elected to train for the NFL Draft in Arizona with Kenny Demens, J. T. Floyd and (strangely) MSU’s Will Gholston. Link to the game’s website:http://www.shrinegame.com/

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, with Elliott Mealer playing for the National team (wearing number 76 and playing offensive tackle) along with Rice’s Sam McGuffie (ex-Wolverine, wearing number 81) will be played today at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California and televised on ESPN2 at 5:00 p. m. EST. Link to the game’s website: http://collegiate.nflpa.com/#!home  

The Logo Helmet Sticker Question

It will be interesting to see whether the Michigan players will add other schools' logo helmet stickers to their helmets and whether Dann O'Neill and Sam McGuffie will feature the BLOCK M prominently on their helmets.

Already posted in other thread, but provided here at the request of other posters (apologies for some redundancy):

Baylor’s Darryl Stonum (ex-Wolverine) played for the West team that beat the East 40-7 in the Casino Del Sol game on January 11 in Tucson.

The Senior Bowl, with Denard Robinson playing wide receiver, will be played on January 26 in Mobile, Alabama (TV: NFL Network at 4 PM) Not sure if they’ve assigned teams yet, but assume that Denard is on the North roster. His quarterbacks could be Mike Glennon - NC State, Zac Dysert - Miami (OH) and Ryan Nassib - Syracuse. Landry Jones - Oklahoma, E. J. Manuel - Florida State and Tyler Wilson - Arkansas are the other quarterbacks at the Senior Bowl. Link to the game’s website:http://www.seniorbowl.com/
