Where in the World is Sam Sword? and Nichol likes MSU for the Second Time

  • Sam Sword what are you doing now? As you know Sam was a standout at Michigan and played 4 seasons in the NFL (3 with the Colts and 1 with the Raiders). Well he is the Palm Coast (FL) recreation supervisor.

Sam Sword, a city recreation supervisor who played football at the University of Michigan and in the NFL, said preregistration was slow early in the week but the number of participants nearly doubled when youngsters showed up with parents on the day of the meet.

  • Former Michigan HS standout QB Keith Nichol decides to transfer to MSU after leaving Oklahoma a few weeks ago. If your wondering why Keith wasn't perused by Michigan. It's because they have one QB coming in this fall and 2 other highly rated QB's coming in for the class of 2009, the year Keith would be eligible to play. Keith's 3 years of eligibility when the Freshmen had 4 or maybe 5 (with a redshirt) didn't make much sense. He was about a month late in his decision if he wanted to wear the Maize and Blue.

  • This ND site is forecasting win and losses for the "Domers". Here is what they had to say about Michigan. On a side note: I personally love that nobody knows what Michigan will have next year. In the past 40 years, we always knew what Michigan had!

Michigan (Toss Up) – Before anyone says how is this game a toss up considering the Wolverines beat the Irish 38-0 last year, remember that Michigan will be breaking in new offensive and defensive systems and will have a quarterback who doesn’t exactly fit Rich Rodriquez’s system. They also lost 11 starters including three offensive linemen. This game will be at home for Notre Dame and the last time Michigan beat Notre Dame 38-0 in Ann Arbor, the Irish upset the Wolverines the following year in South Bend. (by the way they are forecasting a loss vs MSU)
  • Dennis Thames is the Cousin of Detroit Tigers outfielder and is most likely going to stay close to home in Mississippi, but will seriously look at Michigan.
    One school that Thames is looking forward to visiting in particular is Michigan.
    "They are a big school and I like the new spread offense they are gonna run," he said. "I think I'd fit in really well in their offense and I'd love to to play receiver for them. They've talked about both offense and defense, so we'll see."
