Michigan Starting True Freshman at Left Tackle

By D.J. Byrnes on August 25, 2014 at 11:09 am

Kyle Kalis was one of Ohio's top high school players in 2012. He committed to Ohio State in 2010, but due to the fallout from Tatgate, Kalis switched allegiances to Michigan. 

On his way out of the state of Ohio — and after being threatened by moronic Ohio State fans without the ability to breathe through their nose on command — Kalis promised vengeance against Ohio State:

"There will be blood on the field and it won't be mine. … Quote it. Let them know."

Kalis is 0-2 against Ohio State in his career, although to be fair, he watched the 2012 game as a redshirt.

If the redshirt sophomore wants to make good on his pledge to put blood on the field, he better get to work. Michigan released their depth chart today, and Kalis isn't starting:

LT: Mason Cole (Freshman)
LG: Erik Magnuson (RS Sophomore, who also trash-talked OSU and is since 0-2).
C: Jack Miller (RS Junior) 
RG: Joey Burzynski (RS Senior) or Kyle Bosch (Sophomore)
RT: Ben Braden (RS Sophomore)

Derrick Green, a former five-star recruit, will get the start at running back.

Michigan finished No. 97 in the country last year in rushing.
