Not really a poke but he did say he wouldn't post the roster because it would benefit Florida.  Anything Michigan football related is good in these 5 long days to gameday.

NJ.com posted it after their FOIA victory today.  The walk-ons who made the team will be posted on 8/30 I believe.  AFAIK, because we are a public institution, whoever filed the request was legally able to get a list of athletes on scholarship.

I'm sure they are disappointed they weren't able to find a NCAA violation a la FREEP.

There was no "FOIA victory."  NJ.com requested the roster and U-M responded that there was no responsive document.  NJ.com then sought a different category of information -- a list of scholarship players, which was already public information.  Michigan provided that in response to the "clarified" request.  It still has not released the team roster originally sought by NJ.com, which will be publicly released tomorrow.

I don't see the value in it. Whatever he's trying to accomplish is above my mental ability (my ex-wife would quickly point out that this is not a very high hurdle to overcome). But, Harbaugh's gonna Harbaugh, and he's our very unique leader. Just win, guys.
