This is probably one of the most pertinent questions related to the Detroit Lions at this point in time. Do the coaches see diminishing skills in Reggie Bush? Do they see something more in Joique Bell?
At this point, I'd say the Michigan High School Football Player of the Year award should go to either Alex Grace from Saginaw Swan Valley (WMU commit), Khari Willis from Jackson Lume Christi (MSU commit) or Alex Malzone from Bloomfield Hills Brother Rice (U-M commit). Each have been putting up Madden-like numbers consistently each week.
The quarterbacks on the Michigan High School Football Player of the Year watch list get attention wherever they go. Yet, despite all of the attention from opposing defenses, three quarterbacks had their way with the competition in Week 3. Alex Malzone of Brother Rice continues to light up ...
We wanted to know the important stuff. Like, which video game character would he be (it's not Donkey Kong)? Which teammate would he want to date his daughter? And which body part would he cut off to play in a Super Bowl?
Ndamukong Suh is such an awesome bad guy. "(I love to) go into someone else's house and make them have a bad day -- especially with it being a 1 o'clock game. They have to go home and watch the rest the games, the Sunday night game, the Monday night game, with a loss. I like playing on the road."
Ndamukong Suh, to borrow from Jim Schwartz, ain't scared. He revels the opportunity to play against the best, even when he's away from home. Or make that, especially when he's away from home. Suh loves to spoil opposing players' days.
It's quotes like these that make me feel like being a pro athlete is a pretty dismal and sad life. "You're never going to be happy with your performance. You always want to do more. You always want to accomplish more in a game." - surprising DE George Johnson after two sacks. I mean, when can you feel good about yourself if it isn't after a game like that??
Well, this is interesting. Utah can put up a lot of points - and fast. Their defense is extremely aggressive coming after the quarterback. Those are two areas that Michigan is susceptible to. The question is, can Utah upset Michigan at the Big House?
Really cool column from +Joe Lapointe about Ian Kinsler, who is half Jewish, hitting what would become the difference in a 6-4 win over Cleveland on Jewish Heritage Day at Comerica Park. The day pays special tribute to cultural icon Hank Greenberg. Kinsler was well educated about Greenberg. “I know Hank Greenberg went to war. What he did on and off the field was amazing. He was an unbelievable person. And he could hit.”
ANN ARBOR, MI – Football isn't just a game. Not to Ben Gur-Arie. Playing football provides the 17-year-old Ann Arbor senior with a source of identity. It improves his confidence and focus in other areas of his life, and it's a measurement of his miraculous progress.
Freaking incredible. Stupid, but incredible: Hilliard hid the injury for the training staff until after the final whistle, only requesting a fresh taping on the injured foot. His teammates and coaches knew something was up and offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and quarterback Matthew Stafford did their best to call plays which would protect Hilliard.
I am Sports Director for Michigan's largest media organization, MLive Media Group. I grew up and spent most of my life in tiny Cassopolis, Mich. (Pop. 1,825) before going to college at Michigan State University to study Journalism. I have a 7-year old son named Julian, aka Jude. (Oh, yeah, I'm a huge Beatles fan.)
