Two Minute Drill

* Ted Ginn Jr., still recovering from the only tackle made by a Buckeye in the BCS title game last month, will not be ready to go for the NFL combine. (HT: DW)

* WVU fills a void in the college football landscape usually occupied by Miami, Florida by signing the D.C.-area linebacker Pat Lazear, the kid who robbed a health-drink store. (HT: DevilGrad)

* Minnesota and new coach Tim Brewster have scooped up former Michigan secondary coach Ronnie Lee who left the Wolverines after this past season for reasons unknown. Uh, Tim, did you actually see Michigan's secondary play the last two games of the season? Yeah, good luck with this hire. (HT: DevilGrad)

* Tailback Sam McGuffie, Houston's player of the year last season as a junior after he rushed for 3,000+ yards has said Michigan is the team to beat at this point in the recruiting process. Turns out his folks are from Detroit and huge U-M fans. Check out these highlights. (HT: DW)

* LM (and a lot of other Buck readers) informed us of a guy in a Michigan hat who was on a recent edition of NBC's To Catch a Predator show. Don't have a link to the clip but if anybody else does, please send.

* Finally, via TrojanWire, MZone reader CA uncovers the real reason RoJo committed to USC over U-M...


What, you mean he didn't like the golf outfits on our co-eds? Hmm. Shocking.

Re: the M hat on Dateline's To Catch a Predator show. I saw that and thought it was Michigan at first, but the color was a little off, and the show was set and filmed to catch predators in a town in Texas (forgot exact town name) that started with an "M", so maybe it was a hat for the local high school.... beats me. It should be easy to find out. This has Google-race written all over it. On you mark...

Bam - quick man quick-

The show was shot in Murphy, Texas. It doesn;t look good that it wasn't a Michigan hat, because the high schools aren't called "Muurphy high"... cicumstantial evidence at best right now. I did find this video of the hat in question. Sorry I'm an engneer but couldn't html my way out of a wet paper bag.

Yeah, I don't know... doesn't look good for you guys.

Uhh, maybe it's a Missouri hat, yeah that's it, Missouri.

1) It was Roy Hall that took Ginn out.
2) I drove by McGuffie's high school last night on my way out of Houston. I slowed down a little and felt the Michigan karma.
3) Someone needs to feed RoJo's model a cheeseburger.
