Free Style Friday

  • Can Michigan pick up some big time recruits from the Southern States in last few days before signing day? There are two big time targets: DE Sam Montgomery (pictuired above) and OL Quinton Washington (pictured below). Both men list Michigan as one of their finalist with other Southern schools. Yesterday, Sam hosted at home Butch Davis from North Carolina, Monte Kiffin new DC at Tennessee, and Les Miles from LSU. Sam will visit Tennessee this weekend and had also has USC and Clemson on his list. It seems the leader in the clubhouse, might be UNC for Sam. I think Butch Davis is trying to sign 40 guys this winter. As for Quinton, he recently cut his list down by removing Clemson and Tennessee, he is visiting Miami this weekend but most believe South Carolina and Michigan are in his final 2.

  • As you can see from the poll on the right side, the BHB readers feel that Denard Robinson is Michigan's most important recruit still pending. Denard would give Michigan another dual threat QB and some much needed depth at the position. Most believe Denard, will pass on his Florida offer so he can play with his good friend Adrian Witty (DB). The two schools that have offered both players are Kanas State and Michigan. The betting money, is on both players to be Blue next Wednesday.

  • This from the Ann Arbor News, regarding the father of the Michigan Hockey player who was slashed on the ice and then ran into the MSU locker room to confront the players: Bruce Kampfer, the father accused of physically confronting Michigan State hockey player Corey Tropp in the Spartans' locker room at Yost Ice Arena last Saturday, is banned from most buildings on the University of Michigan's campus, a police spokesperson said Thursday. Bruce Kampfer, has been given an official tresspass order and is not allowed to enter any building on the University of Michigan's campus, except the university hospital as necessary. This is a sad ending to a terrible incident. This father will never be able to see his son play at Yost Arena again.

  • Michigan will start it's spring football practice on March 14.

  • Michigan Basketball plays again on the road on Saturday as they visit Purdue. We all know how the Wolverines have been playing lately and I don't give them much of a chance in West Lafayette. The game is on at 1:00 on CBS. Don't expect to see Zack Novak in this game, who will most likely will be sitting out due to a suspension for his elbow in the Ohio State game. I think Purdue will be favored to win this game easily. If you are looking to place a bet on this game or to bet on other sports try the guys at, they are good guys and a very professional site (don't forget there is a pretty large football game this weekend as well). With the recent poor play, Michigan is now looking at an NIT bid which is a disappointment after the pre-season wins against UCLA and Duke. Don't forget Michigan still has a road date with "soon to be #1" UConn as well. Nothing but bad news from the Wolverine Basketball program at the moment.
