Wolverine Wednesday: Big House Blog Book Review

The publisher sent me this book that released this month:

Michigan Man, Jim Harbaugh and the Rebirth of Wolverines Football
by Angelique Chengelis
Michigan Man: Jim Harbaugh and the Rebirth of Wolverines Football

I have always been a fan of Angelique's writing and coverage of the Michigan Football team over the years.   Her writing style and inside information continues in this book.   The story of the book is one your familiar with as she really documents the Nike/Jumpman signing and the 2016 season.   What you will find in this book is the inside information on Jim's thoughts and who really came up with the idea to use Jordan.   It's a fun read for Michigan fans looking for some inside information from Schembechler Hall.   There is a great story about Bo and young Jim Harbaugh sitting in his office! 

  • Under the Jim Harbaugh is a rock star heading- BTN and Amazon Prime will be documenting this season "behind the scenes" that will premier in January.   This is a unique inside look at the program for fans but more importantly future recruits.   Sounds like a Michigan "Hard Knocks".

  • Former Wolverine DB Keith Washington is at Copiah-Lincoln CC.   There is something strange about this transfer.   Keith would be getting a ton of snaps right now.

  • FIU - IU game has been cancelled this weekend.

The transfer of DB Keith Washington to Copiah-Lincoln CC appears to have been for academic reasons. We know that Michigan is not likely to throw kids under the bus in the media when they screw up. IMHO!!!

VOR, that was my first thought, then I started thinking he had been at Michigan two years already. He also decided to transfer late in camp, which probably really reduced his options.

I might be wrong, but I believe another reason for someone to go to a CC is to avoid sitting out a year due to transfer. He can play immediately at a jr college, then next year he can transfer back to a D1 school and play immediately there as well.

I can't believe no one has commented on the BTN & Amazon Prime series. I gotta believe that Submarine Jim really doesn't like it. It will expose too much of his program to the public. He might even have to publish a roster without waiting to the last possible minute.
