Tuesday Morning Brews: Back At It Again

New, 5 comments

Media Days have been busy, but everyone’s really thinking about football around the corner.

NCAA Football: Michigan Spring Game Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Hitting the Links Enjoyed ‘Dunkirk’

Michigan Game Overseas?

Maybe a rough transition from Dunkirk, but Harbaugh says Michigan has had preliminary conversations to have an actual football game take place in Rome. Cool stuff.

Phil Steele: U-M Will Finish 3rd In Big Ten East, MSU 5th

Something that always annoys me this time of year: safe predictions about how the season will turn out. Steele stayed pretty well inside the lines here, guessing Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan will finish 1-2-3 for the East. His guesses were reasonable, though.

Meanwhile, another set of predictions - this time by various writers and organized by cleveland.com - have Michigan in third as well. Mostly the same.

SI: Big Ten Is The Best Conference In College Football

Augh, now we’re talking!

Rashan Gary Lands On Walter Camp Watch List

The Walter Camp watch list is for the top overall player in the country; forty names made the list and Gary was one of them.

Jabrill Finally Officially Signs With The Browns

Peppers could end up as the Day 1 starter at strong safety for the Browns, though another trade brought in Calvin Pryor from the Jets as competition. Jabrill’s not worried, though.

“What I did at Michigan, it definitely broadened my knowledge — my football wits, I guess. And the game is still 80-percent mental, so once you have a good grasp of the playbook, you can play faster. That’s what I’ve been trying to do, learning what I’m supposed to do and the branching out to learn what other guys are supposed to do to get the full concept.”

Braylon Edwards Joins The Big Ten Network

Yay! Kirk Herbstreit, we’re coming after your spot. Go get ‘em, Braylon.

Big Ten Dials Back Restrictions On FCS Scheduling

Now, when Big Ten teams have four conference home games in their nine-game conference slate, they can add a nice, cushy home game against an FCS school.

The cool part of this from U-M’s perspective? Michigan could end up playing an Ivy League team again at some point; for those who don’t know their history, college football really started with the Ivy League schools, and the Ivy League teams thus have very competitive all-time records against the Wolverines from their old glory days.

Then again, I don’t know anyone who holds a grudge from the 66-0 whooping Michigan suffered at the hands of Cornell in 1889. Or the time Cornell won in 1894, robbing us of a championship. I’m still angry about it, though. And I want revenge.
