Hitting the Links Would Like A Good DC Movie

CBS Preseason All-America Selections

Only Jake Butt makes the first team here, with Jabrill and Jourdan making the second team.

SI Big Ten Preview

A three-way tie in the East would, at least, be objectively entertaining. And honestly, that might happen.

Stewart Mandel’s Big Ten Preview

This one is entertainingly bad. Mandel picks the East and West from #1-7 with season predictions, and these are the absolute definition of safe and lazy choices - all the way down to Ohio State over Michigan for the East. He does pick Michigan to go 10-2, by the way, same as SI.

Update On Graham Glasgow

This was a nice feature on the Detroit Lions’ third-round selection.

Drake Johnson Describes His Forklift Incident

Like Chuck Norris, Johnson survived by pushing the earth down.

Michigan Hot Takes

Quick hitting season predictions, easy on the seriousness. A good complement for this exhaustive tweet-cap of Fall Camp’s first week.

Recruiting Updates On Tedarrell Slaton, Sione Lund

I’ve watched these guys in action, and both are terrific. Some have given concerns about Slaton at offensive guard, but I think he’s phenomenal. And Lund is a Kingston Davis clone with great speed for his size.

Could A Wave Of Commitments Come From Cali?

It feels like Michigan has been successfully digging for gold for a while now, but UM’s success in Cali only started late in the ‘16 cycle: Devin Asiasi, Kekoa Crawford, and David Long all committed in January or later. And, like last year, it’s proving a little time-intensive to take the top talent out of that state. The only two commits in the western half of the U.S., in fact, are Dylan McCaffrey (Littleton, CO) and O’Maury Samuels (Los Lunas, NM).

Ranking The Fifty Best Names In College Football

I like this format. The selections could have been better, though, but I might do one of these later and rectify that. No list without Lloyd Cushenberry III can be taken seriously.

Jabrill makes the cut, by the way, at #43.
