20 Questions: Michigan Quarterback Controversy?

We here at The Big House Report–namely myself and our fearless leader Anthony–are rolling out a new series starting today. We compiled a list of “20 Questions” pertaining to Michigan football, and we’ll be looking at them individually over the weeks leading up to the season.
We’re going to do this in a few ways: 1) If Anthony and I agree on the answer to a particular question, then one of us will write an article (like I’m doing right now) about the subject. 2) If we disagree, then we’ll co-write a debate piece of sorts, with each of us detailing our particular opinion in a singular article.

Of course, these questions are current as of late April. There will almost assuredly be more questions that pop up over the course of the next 4 months. What if Michigan suffers an injury to a starter? That will obviously spawn more questions. We’ll answer those as they pop up and become relevant, but for now, follow me through the jump for the first question in this new series… Continue reading

Where Each of Michigan’s Players Fit Best in the NFL

The NFL Draft is just three short weeks away, and there is still a lot to do in terms of talent evaluation, and who each team wants to draft. I’ve done some thinking, and now I think I know where each player from the University of Michigan should go, and where they will fit best.

First, there are a few Michigan players that are not really on people’s radar’s in the NFL just yet, but there has been nice improvement since the season ended, and when their talents were on display in their Pro Day in March.

You can check out my list after the jump. Continue reading

The Curious Case of the Michigan Offensive Line

Before I jump right into this, I wanted to start with a bit of an introduction to my background. I played football for 10 years, from 3rd grade all the way through high school. I had a few offers to play college ball at D3 or D2 schools, but I (perhaps stupidly) chose to not continue my football career. For each and every one of those 10 years, I played offensive line (and linebacker, but that’s irrelevant right now). The reason I’m telling you this isn’t because I’m reliving my glory days here, but to sort of let you all know that offensive line play, in particular the play of the center and left tackle, is near and dear to my heart. I watch the offensive line more than I watch any other position, and last season’s debacle on the line cut me deep.

Follow me through the jump to hear my thoughts on the current state of the Michigan offensive line, and how I think it’ll all shake out come August 31st… Continue reading
