Ex-Wolverine Updates

September 23, 2014
Jay Hopson has Alcorn State chugging along pretty nicely.

Former DT Richard Ash: Ash made 1 tackle in Western Michigan’s 45-14 victory over Murray State.

Former TE commit Pharaoh Brown: Brown had 3 catches for 38 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown in Oregon’s 38-31 win over Washington State. The game was tied 31-31 until the Ducks scored the go-ahead touchdown with 5:33 left.

Former CB Cullen Christian: Christian had 1 tackle in West Virginia’s 45-33 loss to Oklahoma.

Former CB commit Dallas Crawford: Crawford made 3 tackles in Miami’s 41-31 loss to Nebraska.

Former K Matt Goudis: Goudis sat out Miami’s loss to Nebraska with an injury.

Former LB coach Jay Hopson: Hopson, the head coach at D-II Alcorn State, moved to 3-1 with a 52-9 win over Mississippi Valley State. His only loss this year came at the hands of Southern Miss, an FBS school, by a score of 26-20. Against D-II opponents, the Braves have scored 50+ points in each game and they have allowed 6, 7, and 9 points.

Former defensive coordinator Greg Robinson: Robinson is now the defensive coordinator at San Jose State, a team that is #99 nationally with 31 points per game allowed. They’re also #59 nationally by giving up 375 yards/game, which isn’t terrible considering two of their opponents have been Auburn and Minnesota.

Former head coach Rich Rodriguez: Arizona won a ridiculous game against Cal by a score of 49-45. Arizona was down 28-6 at halftime, but they outscored Cal 43-17 in the second half. The game was finally won on a 47-yard Hail Mary from Anu Solomon to Austin Hill as time expired. Solomon was 47/73 for 520 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Receiver Cayleb Jones caught 13 passes for 186 yards and 3 touchdowns, and Hill caught 8 passes for 127 yards and 2 touchdowns. It’s interesting to watch from afar as Rodriguez has gone from a run-heavy spread offense at West Virginia and Michigan to a passer-friendly one in Arizona, although they usually still run the ball well.

Former S Ray Vinopal: Vinopal made 7 tackles in Pitt’s 24-20 loss to Iowa.

    Alcorn State is FCS. They aren't D2….

    It's amazing to watch people like DonAZ try to tear down Michigan. Do they think the players or Hoke need more pressure? Maybe they don't realize they played poorly! Is it helping recruiting or anything else to malign the program? Is it pleasurable to sh*t on people's livelihoods and dreams? I don't think he or the others like him really think or care.

    I love watching the team and hope Hoke and the players do well. When they lose, the worst part is (some) 'fans'.

      Yeah … I love you too.

      I hope the view from up there on your high horse is good?

      @anonymous at 2:30pm … I doubt you really know how much of a 'fan' I am.

      Take a look at the archives here, MGoblog and Maize-n-Brew … you'll find I'm one of the more supportive 'fans' of Brady Hoke. I absolutely want him and the team to do well. I think he can be a very good coach if he lets go of some outdated notions and he let's Nussmeier have a bit more free-reign with the offense.

      My comment above was merely a joke … hence the "wink" emoticon. I was simply playing off the most dominant Michigan meme post-Utah.

    Michigan was going to win the game if it didn't rain
