Eastern Michigan Post-Game Quote:

Ron English

“You have to score from the one-inch line. Can’t score from the half yard line, you’re going to have a hard time winning, so that hurt us. As the game went along, Denard [Robinson] made some plays in there, and I felt that it took some of our steam away to be honest with you. I thought we had a hard time with him today.” – Eastern Michigan Head Coach Ron English

Drew Henson also came in periodically to spell Brady. With four minutes remaining, Notre Dame went for it and 4th & 1, hit a wide-open receiver to pull ahead 22-19. The rest is history:

A Chat with Shane Morris

Warren, Michigan quarterback prospect Shane Morris became the first commit for the Wolverine’s 2013 class last week. Morris will be the top player in the state and one of the highest rated signal callers in the Midwest, if not the country.

Shane MorrisSean O’Connell: The timing was a surprise to me, when did you come to this decision?

Shane Morris: “I came to this decision about a week before I committed and told coach I wanted to come up with my family and have them see everything.”

Sean O’Connell: Who was your primary recruiter? How is your relationship with him?

Shane Morris: “My primary recruiter was Coach Fred Jackson. We have a very good relationship we talked on the phone once or twice every week. He was a huge influence in my decision, he was alway telling me everything that was going on at U of M and I liked that he was completely honest in every aspect with me. ”

Sean O’Connell: Did you grow up a Michigan fan?

Shane Morris: “Yes I did grow up a Michigan fan, Michigan was my dream school until they changed the offense a couple years ago, now that Coach Hoke is back and running the pro-style again it’s where I belong.”
