(Please excuse any formatting as I am on my phone.) I just attended an alumni club dinner where Marcus Ray was the guest speaker. First off, he has an amazing story and is a captivating speaker. He took us through his entire life experience from high school to now. A few bullets to help make this not tl;dr: • Peyton Manning was almost a Wolverine • Marcus was homeless in 2010 • Staying for his senior season was the right decision but he lost the chemistry he had with woodson, so he didn't perform as well • Says Nick Saban could legitimately come to Michigan, acknowledging how crazy he sounds. • Hoke's mistake is the assistants and that he would keep Hoke on two conditions: 1) if the right candidate is not available and 2) if he replaces four coaches. Overall he is a man of excellent character making his own path through life with some great ideas for the program. He's looking to get into perhaps FS1 or ESPN soon. Looking forward to seeing what's in store for him in the years to come.
