Michigan Monday: Michigan vs. Michigan Super Bowl Crime

A beautiful, fitting reward for Brandon Graham
Yahoo Sports
Last night in the Super Bowl the difference in the game was a Brandon Graham strip sack of Tom Brady.   That play stopped the New England offense and with a field goal pushed the lead to 8 with less then a minute and no timeouts.  Game over.   That play sort of reminds me of the time Charles Woodson stripped sacked Tom Brady in the snow but it was ruled an incomplete pass.   That call went the Patriots way, the one last night didn't.  Congratulations to the Eagles and Brandon Graham, he deserves to be a Champion after some of the poor Michigan teams he was on.

  • Hutchinson and Law didn't get into the Hall of Fame with the latest vote.

  • I felt this might be coming.  QB Kevin Doyle de-commits this weekend.   His recruitment had gone completely silent and I wondered if he would be part of the class weeks ago.   The word on the street is that Michigan wanted him to take a prep year or Gray Shirt and he said, "No thanks".   It will be interesting to see where he signs on Wednesday.   Seems Arizona is now in play for Kevin.

  • Lose one get one - Instate QB Max Wittwer has accepted a PWO to play at Michigan next season.  Max was committed to Air Force and had other scholarship offers to EMU and other smaller schools.  A solid commitment here.

  • Michigan has also accepted a Gray Shirt commitment from instate kicker Jake Moody.   That means he will have to pay his own way for a year and then Michigan will provide him a scholarship for the rest of his time in Ann Arbor.

NSD is two days away and there seems to be no buzz on Michigan signing anymore players to the 2018 class.   Right now the only drama is whether Otis Reese stays in the class or goes to Georgia. 

Including Otis, here is the rest of the 2018 class that are still un-signed in the early period:
  • WR Ronnie Bell is expected to sign
  • CB Vincent Gray is expected to sign
  • Athlete Michael Barrett is expected to sign

There has to be an OLineman project with a high ceiling that we can swipe from someone on NSD.......

Also, what's your gut telling you? Will we get Anderson or will he be a Longhorn?

I think Michigan has a good shot at Anderson but that he ends up at Texas.
