  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

I think it will be somebody that is a bit under the radar right now. Tufele, Akers, Okudah, Holmes, Browing, et al are all "takes", right? Not that we'll get them all, but I suspect that this spot will be a late add to address an area where we're currently thin. Frankly, I wouldn't be shocked if they add a late-blooming QB.

Strange that ESPN, CNN, and others are not reporting it (as of 8:15 CST).

Not a big golf fan, but Arnie transcended it. Dude had some swag, too, for a golfer.

Haters gonna hate. I get that he plays for UM, but he plays very well for UM. He had a punt return TD, a 50+ yard kickoff return, some big hits, and 3.5 tackles for losses. This is a smart football board, but not on this matter.

Blu:

Thanks for input. My buddy's son plays with Dunaway at Brother Rice and says he's overrated and can't stay healthy. Two big strikes right there. The "Ohio kids" and Solomon, though, are more related than you think. It seems that the UM staff struggles to tighten relationships once they get a commitment. They actually seem to have better relationships with the uncommitted kids they're courting, though they seem to accept commitments in a kind of flippant, "this doesn't mean forever" way. You could certainly argue our relationship with Todd Sibley is similar, but it hasn't been a trend with Meyer as it has been with Harbaugh. I don't think this problem will go away and will generally chip away at the great product that Michigan has to offer.

Probably the most entertaining start to a college football season that I can remember. So many blue-bloods in the mix, but with some really intriguing upstarts in Houston and Louisville mixed in. Lamar Jackson has that Jameis Winston vibe to him (without all the messy legal stuff, of course) and Houston plays like it belongs. Clemson, meanwhile, looks like FSU the year after their natty. I really have no idea how good Michigan, Stanford, Washington, and Texas A&M are and there are a lot of one and two-loss teams already who have important football left to play.
