Michigan Football: the tweet, The Tweet, THE TWEET! — 8/17/2013
GBMWolverine Readers: Here is a overview of University of Michigan happenings in the Twitterverse.
Not too long ago Brady Hoke reached out to the little boy of a Ohio family who is battling cancer, his family are alumni, lifelong buckeyes,
and his family named his tumor “Michigan” – in which Brady wished him the best in his fight and even noted this is one time he can root for Michigan to lose. He and the Michigan administration even went on to provide he and his family tickets to “The Game” in Ann Arbor. Well if any of you follow any of the buckeye boards, blogs, and pay sites you would have seen many an ignorant Columbus mutant say Hoke and the Wolverines were doing so as a publicity stunt. Well fast forward to today, and here is Kalen Berry a high-school player in Texas who is fighting a battle with cancer himself, and even with the season just around the corner, and camp in full swing – Hoke and the entire staff took time to wish him a full recovery. Guess Hoke and the staff are just doing this as a media campaign against our fierce rival the Texas Longhorns???

But hey the geniuses that populate the land grant area for Cedar Point are welcome to their misguided opinions. Just like the opinions of those attempting to compare the B1G,
or any conference for that matter to the SEC currently. Sure we almost had the Gamecocks, and have the potential along with and handful of B1G teams to start to close the gap and make the conference more respectable in the national picture. However, regardless past records, history, academics, and non-revenue sports, purely from a football vantage point the B1G’s power teams must follow the Ric Flair mantra of success. To Be The Man, You Have To Beat The Man – WOOOOO!!!

Speaking of the B1G and specifically the BIG TWO, it is a definite possibility that the Wolverines and the Buckeyes will meet for a second time in the conference playoffs. Unless you believe the Huskers will be playing Ohio for the B1G championship, your’s truly does not. That stated I am in the crowd, you know that one of “down in front”, “you kids get off my lawn”, and “where are my keys?” pundits – okay well at least the last one, that will miss The Game being the regular season coup de grâce, but if we are as a conference to kill some SEC barriers the conference title match was necessary, and much like beets, Brussels sprouts, or hominy I may have to eat it but I do not like it. Apparently I am not alone – and even an enemy can be a compatriot in a foxhole. This weird brother-in-arms is none other than Kirk Herbstreit, who talks about the Game-Squared possibilities. We agree Kirk – but you will never be a brother of mine in any form – take that you heretic.
