Random Stuff

Just browsing the web this morning, I found the press release for the 2008 homecoming game. We are set to play Illinois on October 4th at 3:30P.M. That game will air on ABC.

Also, 3 more Michigan players inked deals with NFL teams last week. Adam Kraus signed a free agent deal with the Baltimore Ravens. Brandent Englemon received a tryout offer from the Green Bay Packers, and Chris Graham will tryout with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Those three will join Jamar Adams, who signed shortly following the draft with the Seattle Seahawks.

Mario Manningham is in the news again. This time for being hurt in the Giants free-agent mini-camp last weekend. He suffered a left hip flexor injury, and had to sit the rest of the day. He said it happened when he did not run a route the right way.

And for your added enjoyment, ESPN goes All-Access with Michigan spring practice. Nothing earth-shaking, but just a lot of interviews and practice footage. Oh, and of course, the token two cents from ESPN cfb golden boy Kirk Herbstreit. Chris Burke from the Diag had this posted on his blog, and I thought it would look good posted here as well.

Just a quick comment/question. Maybe it's just me, but I always found it strange that the Michigan players never stretched before games. Most other teams line up on the field, and do at least 3-5 good minutes of stretching. Does anyone know if Michigan just stretched in the locker room? ...or not at all??? Not a big deal I suppose, but it would be interesting to know.
