This Week: Short but Sweet - Commits in Action and Prospects in Action. That's it! O yeah and An Epic Prank!!
An Epic Prank
A picture arose on Twitter late Wednesday night that created a huge buzz and added even more flames to an already ablaze fire. Below is the Knute Rockne gate of Notre Dame Stadium which sits across from Touchdown Jesus and as you can see, something seems a little misplaced. Apparently a few students made the trip down to the stadium and hung this banner featuring the block M and relaying a message that reads "Beat the Irish." The kicker, the students were holding a little pep rally right around the corner. Priceless (or should I say, oblivious...).

Hopefully the above provided you with something to laugh about regarding last weekend's game. I can't even speak about it anymore, but Brad was more than happy to provide his thoughts of the 13-7 loss.
Commits in Action
DE Taco Charlton was getting it from the opposing team's players and fans leading up to his contest over the weekend. Charlton was not shy to silence them during the 21-20 hard fought victory. According to his twitter, he had "like 5 sacks and close to 20 tackles+ tackles. Hataz gunna hate!
DB Ross Douglas was impressive in his game over the weekend. He showed off his 4-star rating recording an interception on defense and lighting up the scoreboard on offense for 3 scores tallying 140 yards on his way.
'14 LB Michael Ferns and St. Clairsville (OH) took home a 48-6 victory over the weekend. Couldn't find any stats for the game.
Tremendous was kind enough to compile a list of stats for a good chunk of Michigan's '13 commits over the weekend. A few things to note before you get your fix:
- Cass Tech suffered there first loss of the season in a cold, wet showdown with in state foe OLSM. Stat of the night: CT only accumulated 59 yards of total offense for the game. YIKES!
- '15 KY RB Damien Harris made this list for some reason. Is there something we are missing?! Do I need to scratch this and start getting an "Incoming" post ready?! (Settle down there partner, just making a funny) He continues his hot Sophomore (yes I said Sophomore) year with a 2 TD performance on 11 carries for 258 (!!) yards (as you'll see). Pretty sure Harris is a sure bet for over 200 each game and is considered on a short list for the top '15 RB according to Steve Wiltfong (Highlights included) . Let's hope there is some forshadowing here!
- S Dymonte Thomas pulled in the FridayNightOhio.com Week 5 Under the Lights Player of the Week this past week. Check out his interview: He screams confidence and composure...
Prospects in Action
'13 RB Derrick Green had 143 yards and 1 score in his team's 20-17 win on Friday.
'13 WR LaQuon Treadwell had two touchdown's in the 1st quarter alone, surprised?! He continues his dominance and leadership as his team pulled in another victory.
'14 DE Da'Shawn Hand will be at the top of the list, if not THE top, when it comes to '14 prospects and Michigan is in the mix. He had an impressive night, recording 12 tackles, 4 TFL, and 3 sacks in his team's victory.
'14 WR Derek Kief has his own twitter page following his performances and his overall commitment (@DerekKiefDotCom). Betcha didn't know that. Pretty cool. Anyways, Kief recorded 9 receptions for 131 yards and 1 TD. You can find anything you want to know about his season and much, much more here.
'14 ATH Jabrill Peppers took part in a 54-7 blowout. His team improves to 3-0 on the season. No stats were found, but I'm sure he was spectacular...He usually is.
'14 WR Dominique Booth was in attendance on Saturday taking in the feeling of what a heated rivalry is all about. He preceded the visit with 9 catches for 115 yards and 2 TD's in his game Friday night.
I had a little chat with '14 FL OL Mason Cole while making the treck home from vacation and he was definitely cheering on the Wolverines on Saturday night as he predicted they would pull the upset. He also told me he was still planning on visiting for the Michigan State game with WR prospect and teammate Artavis Scott. As for how his season is going and if he is much looking foward to his visit..."Good, were 3-1 and heck ya!" This visit could be huge for UM's chances to get a commitment from Cole and to extend an offer to Scott.
