  1. Magnus -

    Suppose you had a magic machine allowing you to go back in time and keep Vinopal on the roster. Also suppose in this scenario he's happy here. Would this make an impact on the quality of the team sufficiently to do it?

  2. We got to add one more to the ex-Wolverines list -- Al Borges. He was fired today, per Hoke. I got to say, the Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke duo sure is sly. They waited until the first day of class (today), after the seven early enrollees (featuring key recruits on the offense) started class, to fire Borges.

    I wonder who Michigan will go after for OC and whether or not more coaches will be fired (especially D. Funk).
