Wolverine Wednesday: Welcomes You To July

This isn't a great time of year for football news.  We have the July 4th holiday coming up this weekend and most coaches are taking a break before the grind of the season starts which starts in about a month.   Jimmy is throwing out the first pitch at the Tigers game and waiting to hear if he picked up a WR on Friday.  (he probably already knows if he did or didn't).   The top recruits in the country are preparing to head out to Nike's HQ for The Opening after the 4th holiday.

We also wait on the Nike/UA/Adidas decision from Mr. Hackett as well.  He said, he would give us a decision around July 1.   Rumblings have been toward Nike as Adidas has dropped to third in US sales behind Nike and UA.  Nike does over 11 Billion in the US, Adidas does less then 2 Billion.  

  • Per Scout's message board: Rashan Gary's mom was quoted about the Michigan trip:  "Michigan hit every detail," Jennifer Coney said.  "EVERY detail."  Reports of an OSU and Michigan battle now seem to be an Auburn - Michigan battle for the #1 player in the nation.

  • Another WR high on Michigan and vise versa is Ahmir Mitchell who is taking his time and thinking through a decision.  Most believe this to be an OSU and Michigan battle for this talented WR.   If Brad Hawkins pops for the Wolverines on Friday, don't be surprised if Ahmir makes a quick decision as the space in this class is getting very tight.

  • Speaking of Nike News:  Phil Knight announced he is going to retire next year.  Will it be with or with out the Wolverines?
