How do you think Michigan's current wide recievers feel, knowing that their coach would bench them if a guy who shaves his chest showed up to practice?
Since Phelps trains in Ann Arbor, surely Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez has dropped a hint. He is starting five freshmen in the Wolverines' debut of his no-huddle spread Saturday against Utah. One more novice -- one who would challenge Tiger Woods on the competitive spectrum -- couldn't hurt.
"Oh, I would put him at wide receiver," Rodriguez said. "With those long arms, he'd be perfect."
I think it's cool that Michigan will be honoring Phelps at halftime of their game this weekend.
At the very least, somebody in the stadium will know what it's like to win 8 times this year.
