Getting More Attention

Much of how you can tell if you're once powerful program is on the mend, at least in the eye of the mass media, is if they do feature articles about your team's players mid-week leading up to a less-than-exciting game against a completely inferior MAC school. Well, that seems to be what is happening. Let's take a look.

Tate is the new face of Michigan football

Also, just for fun, The Detroit News takes a look at EMU head coach Ron English's trip back into the Big House just two years removed from being our defensive coordinator. We here at MBN really liked English when he was coaching here, and of course we wish him all the luck in the world at EMU...just not this weekend.

"The Big House is a special place and anytime you can coach in that stadium it's special, and I don't care what side you're on," English said. "It's one of the top venues in the country. Our team has to make sure they don't get caught up in the pageantry of it all. There are issues, like 'will the guys focus' or 'will they be distracted.'

"Michigan's a different animal. There's one way to go in the stadium and one way out and there's a sea of people. The environment will be different (than when I was there). It will be louder with the boxes (new suites)."

  1. I really hope Forcier can sustain his success.

    The whole country seems to love talking about this kid.

    I'm just crossing my fingers that he can remain level headed and get through the season without any major bumps in the road.

    It's hard not to get excited about his prospects.
