Michigan QB Battle Is Over

I didn’t believe it at first, but those in the know insist that red-shirt senior John O’Korn gave Wilton Speight all he could handle in the QB battle but fell short of winning the starting job in the end.  For the record I was almost 100% confident Speight would job out with the starters against Florida.

Michigan has a QB and his name is Wilton Speight.  Sources say Speight and O’Korn both had great camps but Speight won the right to start against Florida by a slim margin.  Observer say both QB’s are energized new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton and his presence was particularly “energizing” for O’Korn.

The downside of the battle was red-shirt Freshman Brandon Peters performance, one observer described Peters as “lost...

Michigan Fall Camp Update! Who’s the Kicker; Punter?

This is a big week for the Michigan football team, it’s crunch time for players trying to win starting spots or at least a spot on the two deep.

It appears we have a winner in the battle to punt for Michigan.  There was a lot of speculation and a strong belief that Freshman Brad Robbins would win the punting job, but it appears that will not happen, at least not for the Florida game.  My sources inside the fort tell me that Will Hart, a sophomore from Hunting Valley, Ohio has won the starting job over Robbins.  Apparently Robbins battled injury throughout camp and wasn’t able to pull ahead in the competition.  Obviously this doesn’t mean Robbins won’t get a shot this year, but sources say he won’t be the punter for the game in Dallas against the gators.

The kicking game is up in the ai...

Michigan Fall Camp Update! Wide Receivers and Tight Ends and More

Following my last  update I had a few folks ask me about Eddie McDoom, he is clearly a fan favorite and some like to see him break out in 2017.

I started poking around and my sources tell me that all is well with McDoom and he is having a great camp, he just isn’t as dynamic a receiver as Tariq Black and Donovan People-Jones.  I’m also told Kekoa Crawford is having a great camp too, they are just being over shadowed by the “sick” freshman in camp.

The Tight End group of Wheatley, McKeon and Bunting are apparently very solid with five or six guys who can and will play and make significant contribution to the team this fall.

The other hot story is the emergence of junior Brandon Watson at corner back, he is pushing Hill and Long for a starting job.

I’m also told that the kicker job is wi...
