Wolverine Wednesday: Updates Brian Cole

Remember Brian Cole?  He was an athlete from Saginaw that could pay on either side of the ball.   He was a the top rated player out of Michigan in the 2015 class and the #74th player in the country to 24/7.  Michigan wanted him on offense and he tried his hat at WR.  During his freshman year he caught one pass against Utah and played mostly on special teams.  Later that season, Michigan considered moving him to CB.

After that season, it was quickly downhill for Brian at Michigan and in May 2016, Brian was enrolled at East Mississippi CC.  After some time at East Mississippi, Brian transferred to Mississippi State but not all his credits transferred and he had to sit out his first year on campus.  

Brian is now a 5th year senior at Mississippi State and starter at Safety.  Last year, he had 11 tackles and one pick after starting 4 games while partially tearing his pectoral muscle.  Good luck to Brian during his senior year!

  • Sun Bowl is now The Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl.  Please expand the playoffs. 

  • Brandon Peters former Michigan QB who took a graduate transfer to Illinois, was named the starter yesterday.   Illinois clearly got the better of the Jeff George, Jr. trade, who never played at Michigan or made it through camp.  

  • This seems strange but Shea Patterson is an alternate captain on offense, Josh Metellus on defense, per UM Athletics.

  • Michigan spent nearly $1.4M on recruiting costs last fiscal year.   MSU spent over $766K
