Why would anyone care if  he comes to Michigan, Don't we have enough defensive ends? We have Jibreel Black, Ryan Van Bergen, Craig Roh, Brennen Beyer coming in, do we really need another end?

I'm not sure, but if not, Miller was recruited to play guard.  He is averaging 4 pancake blocks a game, and hasn't allowed a sack all year playing OT.

Last week against an OSU DE commit, he more than held his own.  Pancaking him twice, not allowing any sacks, and had 3 TFL on D.  This kid is NASTY!!!

“From a financial standpoint, moving made the most sense. I fought it for a while. Other than my dad being sick, my life was going great at the time. You lose a parent, and then a couple months later you lose your house, your community, your school, your friends and your girlfriend.”

IMO this is why UofM has a football program.  Its to give good kids a free college education

I know Football is about winning and losing and everything, but the kids are also being trained to be leaders after football is done

 I know without his ability he would most likely not be going to UofM.  I know you can't help everyone, but I am glad at least 1 kid with a tough story gets a chance

I have to disagree. The name "The Blade" reminds me too much of what it really is... "The Bland" (other than a few rare gems like this).  Also, it is pretty evenly split OSU/Michigan I would say...

Best things about Toledo?

1. Tony Packo's

2. The Mudhens

3. Its not Cleveland

4. Amie's Pizza Factory

5. Close to the border for a quick escape into the northern safe zone

Edit: Saved before writing the other half of my post... DOH! I am from Toledo and went to St. John's and got  the pleasure of coming home and watching him and my Titans utterly destroy SFS.  I had no idea there was such a story behind him.  I look forward to continuing rooting for him in the Maize and Blue!

But Tony Packo's is gone/going out of business.  I don't know if they're downtown anymore, but I know their longstanding restaurant on Monroe St. in Sylvania is shuttered.  There have been reports about these things in the Blade that tell it better than I could.

Hopefully you can still buy their products in stores.  Those were some damn good dogs and chili.
