The Empire Strikes Back: Michigan

Michigan Jedi recruit: I won't fail you. I'm not afraid.

Master Barwis: You will be. You will be.

Michigan strength coach Mike Barwis sounds a bit like Yoda if you dropped the voice down an octave and had him read a biochemistry textbook at high speed. He is also Yoda-esque in his training methods, since he could have Michigan players lifting X-wings out of local bogs, for all I know.

Barwis and his N.W.O. (New Weight Order) have been one of the stories of the offseason as Michigan's players wept, screamed, and clawed their way through the new pain regimen in Ann Arbor. Olympic weightlifting, ab-torching core work, chocolate milk as a recovery beverage ... it's all Dagobah swamp torture in the name of saving Michigan's football universe. If all goes according to plan, the players will be force-pushing linebackers into the secondary in no time flat.

Continuing the Empire theme, Rich Rodriguez had his own struggle with bounty hunters this offseason as West Virginia refused to yield on his $4 million buyout. WVU followed him all the way to Michigan to get it, and they got it. He got to keep Barwis, though, who once had a wolf for a pet. Not. Making. That. Up.
