The Majors Ann Arbor:
As the offseason begins to wind down for the Michigan football team, linebacker Jake Ryan’s recovery from a torn ACL during spring practice has been nothing short of remarkable.
In fact according to head coach Brady Hoke, Ryan’s rehabilitation is going so well, he could make a return to the team sometime during the 2013 campaign.
“I think we’re very excited about his progress,” said Hoke at Big Ten Media Day on Wednesday. “I don’t think anything’s really changed besides he’s done a great job of being very committed, very disciplined to getting himself back through the rehab and everything he’s doing.”
“We’ll find out a little more as we keep going and getting closer,” Hoke added. “But I think sometime in October I think would still be the likely date for him (to return).”
Ryan, who’s return would provide tremendous inspiration for a team looking to win a Big Ten title, recorded 76 tackles, 7.5 sacks and five forced fumbles in two seasons at Michigan.

Brady Hoke likes his team, and he wants them to win the Big Ten championship.
The second part of that sentence is not surprising -- Michigan's goal at the start of every season is to win the conference title -- but the first part is unusual for Hoke.
"I don't usually like my team during the summer," Hoke said during Wednesday's media appearance at Big Ten...

Check out Go Blue Wolverines wrap up of what Michigan head coach Brady Hoke had to say at Big Ten Media days.
You no doubt heard about the courageous kid who was stricken with cancer, named his cancer “Michigan” and made the goal to “beat Michigan.” This young man, named Grant Reid is obviously a huge Ohio State fan. And Mr. Reid did in fact beat his cancer. He’s currently in remission. Michigan Wolverines coach Brady Hoke hooked Reid up with free tickets.
Obviously, matters of...
For Devin Gardner it is the best of times, for the city of Detroit it is the worst of times.
Devin Gardner previously played wide receiver for the Michigan Wolverines and he’ll play his redshirt junior season in Ann Arbor. During the fall of 2009, he was rated as the No. 1 dual-threat high school quarterback in the United States by Rivals and the No. 5 quarterback by ESPNU.
When a crisis strikes in America, it affects us all us Americans. The city of Detroit is bankrupt. The University of Michigan is located in the suburbs of Detroit. Ann Arbor, Michigan is close that it’s right next door to Detroit’s major airport.
Detroit became the biggest American city to ever file for bankruptcy after its emergency manager filed for Chapter 9 protection on...

Ribs unite all.
I am off work the next two days and will be out on an area baseball diamond feeling up teenage boys instead of in front of a computer so these aren’t going to be very long. You’ll live. So I’m tasked with the tough…uh, task of coming up with a topic that I will not need to facilitate. This is going to be tough. NOT! Count it.
College football is probably...
