Photo: Michigan And Ohio State Have Now Sent Photoshopped Magazine Covers With Typos To The Same Recruit

Michigan and Ohio State: epic rivals, Big Ten football programs with excellent pedigrees and national championship aspirations, and two schools with recruiting staffers who refuse to do any sort of proof-reading. Last week, Michigan sent four-star running back Mike Weber a photoshopped ESPN The Magazine with him in maize-and-blue on the cover. The one problem? They failed to spell...

Ohio State matches Michigan typo for typo

In a development that is almost too weird to be true, Ohio State has matched rival Michigan in total of known typos sent to a single recruit. Less than a week after four-star running back Mike Weber of Detroit Cass Tech caused snickers across the Internet by posting a picture of a fake ESPN: The Magazine cover fashioned for him by Michigan recruiters and listing him as Michigan&...

Michigan Sends HS RB Recruitment Material with Wrong Spellings

Something has to go right for the University of Michigan, since football hasn’t been the proud force in the Big Ten that it once was. However, it looks like the English department may be floundering as well. The school sent out a recruitment package to 4-star prospect Mike Weber. The unsuspecting Weber posted the magazine mockup on his Twitter, and it was all downhill for the Wolverines...

Typo mars Michigan recruiting material

With 100 or so days left until real college football games return to our lives, countdowns have begun in various places around the Internet. In the meantime, we still have to get by on stories about grammar and spelling, or -- if we're really lucky -- both! That is the case today thanks to Michigan's football recruiting efforts. The Wolverine coaching staff is among many...

Michigan Sends Recruit Mike Weber Mispelled Magazine Cover

Photo: Michigan Sends Recruit A Magazine Cover Mock-Up, Misspells “All-American”

Red Wings-Sabres wrap-up: Babcock passes Jack Adams as Wings earn necessary points

Worst Regular So Far This Season

At the beginning of December, I picked Mike Weber of the Buffalo Sabres as the worst regular player in the league this year.   He isn't a great defenceman but he had shown that he was good enough to eat some minutes without hurting you much.  On a weak Buffalo team he was thrust over his head into a top four role and he struggled.  He is too good a player to remain the absolute...

Worst Player So Far This Season

Three weeks ago I picked Tom Sestito of the Vancouver Canucks as the worst player so far this season.  He has scored two goals since that point to move him out of the cellar but he remains a player with poor puck possession numbers who rarely scores, yet nonetheless dresses every game despite only getting played a bit over five minutes per game.  I think a better pick as the...
