Speedy Slot WR Freshman Jeremy Gallon has changed his jersey number to No. 3 which belonged to former player Justin Feagin.


Former Wolverine Jerrod Bunch is trying to be a full-time actor.

Do you have time for a funny Jerrod story? Ok, I was working in a local Ann Arbor shop when Jerrod came in after his senior year and was about to get drafted. He said he had just come from the Ford dealership. He asked them to show him the fastest car on the lot.

They showed him the Ford Taurus SHO. He said, "Man, I'm not buying no family car!"


If Michigan is looking for another RB in the 2010 class, they might want to look at Denard Robinson's good friend Cassius McDowell who had this to say about Denard: The two had played football together since age six in Pop Warner. "We were like brothers,'' McDowell said.

Coach Rod expects to hear about Turner, Witty, and the elder Forcier soon.

“Both of them are playing a position where we don’t have a lot of bodies at DB,” Rodriguez said. “So both of those guys were, I don’t want to say they were on the top of the depth chart, but guys that we wanted to look at early to see if they could contribute. Again, until they’re here, we won’t be able to react to that.” 

“I’m pretty optimistic and hopefully (Turner’s) will be quicker,” Rodriguez said. “But wait and see.”

Coach Rod also mentions that Turner and Witty need at least two weeks of practice before playing against WMU. RR also seems more optimistic about Turner then Witty and there also seems to be a good chance Jason Forcier will get the waiver. We will see.


Marquis Flowers, a four-star athlete from Arizona, is planning a visit to Ann Arbor.
