All Work And No Play Make Jack A Dull Boy
Disappearing For A Good Reason
The last few weeks have been far busier than I would have liked. However, my latest absence was not for work.
Over this past week and weekend I was lucky enough be a part of a dear friend's wedding. To share in such a wonderful time in peoples' lives lifts your spirit and reminds you of how lucky you are to be alive.
I hope you all experience such a feeling too, and soon.
Camp News: Hello Mudah, Hello Fadah
Two new Commitments - Over this past week Michigan picked up commitments 7 and 8. Seven was 6 foot corner Tony Woolfolk of Texas. Woolfolk is the son of former Michigan great Butch Woolfolk who stands 4th on Michigan's all time rushing board. Though Woolfolk camped at Michigan, his Dad stated he though Tony would end up at one of the Texas schools. Brian has the details on Woolfolk and commit #8 wide receiver James Rogers from Michigan.
Ryan Mallett continues to impress. Instead of sitting on his laurels he's turning into Michigan's top recruiter. iBlogforCookies and Mgoblog have all your recruiting updates.
Annnnnnnd, We're Clear
With little fan fare, the U.S. Men's Soccer team is heading home from Germany empty handed. Not empty handed in the sense that they didn't win the World Cup. Empty handed in the sense that they didn't win a SINGLE GAME. Despite an inspired effort against Group E winner Italy, the U.S. came out either flat or over matched against Ghana. The result was a 1-2 loss to a team that comes from a country with roughly the population of Florida.
The future for the US team remains as bright as it has ever been. The future is, as always, stocked with promising talents who are already playing overseas. However, for those of us living in the here and now, that bright future is a pin prick of light hovering at the end of another four year tunnel.
Returning to Form
I have not been on the top of my game recently. Alas and Alack. However, I fully intend to make up for this.
A look into why hockey matters (at least to me);
Is this the worst home schedule for Michigan Football in the last 20 years?;
Tommy Ball, what hell is happening to the basketball program;
The College World Series, Oregon State v. UNC (how the hell did this happen?); and
Whatever else enters my mind.
