I'm Concerned About Facing Canberra

According to the Ann Arbor News, Lloyd Carr is in Australia watching rugby as the guest of actor Russell Crowe. Carr, who used Crowe's Cinderella Man as inspiration for the 2006 season, struck up a friendship with the actor during a 20 minute telephone conversation.

Carr traveled down under with Jeremy Van Alstyne and Brian Thompson who just completed their Michigan careers.

Carr and the players were planning on watching Crowe's rugby team, the South Sydney Rabbitohs play the Canberra Raiders. Carr, who's been watching the Rabbitohs all week, was amazed at the aggressiveness with which the players played since they have no pads on. Is it too much wishful thinking that Carr will remember that aggressiveness when facing some inferior teams this fall?

Check out the Aussie take on this story. It seems they think Michigan is in the NFL.

Hopefully, he'll get some of this aggression as well:

Does this mean that Lloyd is going to hit someone with a phone too?
