Michigan Friday: Updates Rumor Mill and A Few More Offers

The rumor mill is spinning that Devin Gardner might have had his medical redshirt application approved.  This rumor started at an alumni event in Florida.  So it has not been confirmed by anyone at the Michigan program yet. 

This would be big because Denard is a junior now and this approval would make Devin a redshirt freshman.  This could also give Bellomy (incoming freshman for 2011) a redshirt year to learn the offense.   Either way, I would expect Devin to get a number of snaps next season.  With Tate gone to South Beach, Devin is now firmly in the #2 role and will spell Denard if he gets nicked up running the ball.

Devin played in two games in 2010 (UConn and Bowling Green) and was 7-10 for 85 yards.  He also ran 6 times for 25 yards and 1 TD.

  • Recent Michigan offer Ron Thompson TE from Detroit has a relationship with Devin Gardner and Michigan might be the team to beat in his recruitment.

  • Michigan has offered 2012 California WR Derrick Woods. DW is 5'11 180 pounds.
  • Michigan Basketball team takes on Indiana at 4:00.  Please go to the game and support this team. 

  • Do you think it took Michigan a long time to fill their assistant coaching spots? Well we could be Indiana who has lost 4 assistant coaches who had only been the job a couple weeks under the new staff,  UCLA which seems to be a complete mess with  Neuheisel just hiring two position coaches yesterday and they are still without DC,  Maryland is trying to hire Randy Shannon as their DC.
