Michigan Thursday: New S&C Coach and a New Workout Facility

Jimmy made an off handed comment that his team needed to get stronger after the OSU game.  Most thought he meant mentally, he actually meant physically.   U of M Football is quickly investing in that very thing.

First Jimmy has hired Ben Herbert from Arkansas and Wisconsin.  He is known as one of the best S&C guys in the business and his new approach and nutrition philosophy is expected to make a positive impact on the Wolverines.  What other tools will he have?..........

Now the Wolverines have a new place to workout:

That basketball court might have a few heated games in there!

  • Otis Reese is expected to be on campus this weekend for an official visit.  Michigan will roll out the "maize and blue" carpet for him.   Side note, Otis's brother plays at Central Michigan, where he visited last weekend.  Having family a few hours away, doesn't hurt Michigan's chances.  

  • Shea Patterson's lawyer told Land of 10 that Michigan hasn't submitted paperwork to the NCAA yet on a Waiver for Shea to become immediately eligible.  That is expected soon and a decision could come as quickly as late February.  (but probably longer)

  • Speaking of transfers, there is talk that the NCAA might remove the one year penalty for all transfers.  That could be a mess, so I'm sure they are going to think long and hard about approving that across the board.

  • Michigan Basketball is at Nebraska tonight. 9:00 BTN -Don't worry I won't watch, but you can! :)
