Welcome back Coach Bedford and scheduling

I know I'm late but felt I had to mention the hiring of Vance Bedford as the Michigan DB coach again. Coach Bedford was the Defensive Coordinator at Oklahoma State the past two years but to Michigan fans he is well known as the DB coach for the Wolverines from the 97 National Championship run after which he took the DB job for the Chicago Bears. Bedford was also known as a good recruiter bringing a number of players in from Texas. That strength is probably enhanced by his experience in the Big XII with Oklahoma State. Can't complain about the hire and hopefully he will get the DB's close to that 97 level.

Plenty of rumors floating about the 12th opponent. With the insistence upon 9/1/07 as the date there are not many options out there. Apparently there are only 7 other IA schools that have that date open so there is talk that we may play Appalachian State aka Appalachian is HOT HOT HOT. Can't say I'm pleased by this development but considering the lack of opponents there's nothing that can be done, unless the Big Ten allows teams to play after Thanksgiving then it would open up some more opportunities so we will have to wait and see.
