Stadium and Main: Ann Arbor area Men's Wearhouses will feel the effect

Ann Arbor area Men's Wearhouses will feel the effect

No more mock turtlenecks

So Tommy’s gone, and most fans are happy about that. Candidates for the job appear to fall into categories: “Established Names” (Lon Kruger (UNLV), Steve Lavin (ex-UCLA)) and “New Faces” (Chris Lowery (So. Illinois), Sean Miller (Xavier)). Many folks feel that a “name” hire is necessary, considering our failures with Amaker and the immediate future of the program (retaining signed recruits and current players). While I haven’t done enough research, I’m not totally on board with that theory. I’d prefer Kruger to Miller. However, I’d prefer Lowery to Lavin. The coaches have to be evaluated individually, and I think the hiring committee will be smart enough to do so. [P.S. My girlfriend says that Amaker deserved to be fired because of his poor fashion sense. Word.]

More input from the girlfriend?

She’s a Grand Haven native, so she requested that I show some love for Dann (with two “n’s”) O’Neill (with two “l’s”), Michigan’s second football commitment for the class of 2008. O’Neill should be a consensus top-5 player in the state of Michigan, and will likely play Offensive Tackle. Will O’Neill come to be known as the best thing from Grand Haven since Butch’s Beach Burritos my girlfriend? Since he’ll be playing at a position of need, I hope so.

Prepare to squint less at Michigan Stadium

Some scoreboard upgrades are coming to the Big House. People around Ann Arbor have said that cranes have already been doing some work in recent days. I’m sure it will be an improvement regardless, but it’s unclear whether the LED display will be High Definition. Paying lots of money for technology that is already outdated isn’t the best idea, so let’s hope Bill Martin contacted the Texas folks before making any decisions. Note: It doesn’t appear that this will change the video displays (the biggest part), just the scoreboards (Down, Distance, Time Outs, Yardage, etc.) and the message boards on the bottom. I could be mistaken, though.

Only 166 days left to prepare

Appalachian State’s first spring practice report is online.
