Ex-Wolverine Updates

Rich Rodriguez won his debut as the Arizona Wildcats head coach
Former Michigan TE/DE commit Pharaoh Brown: Brown had 1 reception for 16 yards in Oregon's 57-34 win over Arkansas State.

Former Michigan CB Cullen Christian: Christian had 5 tackles, but Pitt lost to Youngstown State by a score of 31-17.

Former Michigan RB commit Dee Hart: Hart had 9 carries for 19 yards as a backup running back in Alabama's 41-14 demolition of Michigan.

Former Michigan RB Sam McGuffie: McGuffie is now a full-time slot receiver for the spread offense at Rice.  In a 49-24 loss to UCLA, he had 8 receptions for 63 yards and 1 touchdown.

Former Michigan WR/CB commit Dewayne Peace: Peace, now a wide receiver for the Houston Cougars, had 2 receptions for 13 yards in UH's 30-13 loss to Texas State.

Former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez: Rodriguez won his first game as Arizona's head coach, a 24-17 victory over Toledo in overtime.  The Wildcats had 624 total yards of offense.

Former Michigan WR Je'ron Stokes: Stokes, now playing for Bowling Green State University, had 4 receptions for 32 yards in BGSU's 27-14 loss to the Florida Gators.

Former Michigan S Ray Vinopal: Vinopal, a current teammate of Christian at Pitt, had 3 tackles in the 31-17 loss to Youngstown State.


  1. McGuffie is (IMO) finally where he should be (slot receiver).

    Interesting, also, to see Brown playing as a true frosh at Oregon.

  2. Stonum had 2 receptions and a td in Baylor's blowout over SMU. Both catches were in the 4th quarter. I'm not sure if he played earlier in the game.

  3. Classic RR game: tons and tons of yards on offense, not that many points, no separation from the opponent.

  4. It takes a special "talent" to put up 624 yards of offense and score only 24 points.
