This is huge for this organization that we have a leader that will not only lead with his words but his example as well. Last year there was an article on him stating that he wanted to crack the starting line-up this year and make an impact on the field so that he can help be a leader of this defensive unit. I remember reading this and thinking, what determination.... confident but not cocky. This is yet another example of why this organization has flourished throughout the years, because its committed to finding character people to put on the roster. Between Wood and FWP winning NFL honors this week, this season may prove to be something special for our devoted fanbase. Its great to be part of "The Nation!"
    Not as long as Silverback plays for the Steelers. He (Silverback) brings too much intensity and attitude not make him the defensive captain. My 20 cents... :P

    that is very true. they may have had some down years lately but umich is an excellent school and they have an excellent program, unlike some others in the little ten
    I could care less about their football program. Their academic institution is in my opinion second to NONE in the US for state schools. Some will say the UC's like UCLA and UC Berkeley, BUT I say that UMich Med/Law/Business School/Undergraduate schools outweigh ever so slightly UCLA and UC Berkeley. I think for undergraduate they are ranked 26th nationally while Berkeley (21), UVA (23), and UCLA (25). So for undergraduate they are very competitive and I think their graduate schools are better.
    Hey, buddy! I went to Cornell, which is an Ivy League school. While part of it is a private university (College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, School of Hotel Administration, Graduate School, Law School, Johnson Graduate School of Management, and the off-campus Medical Schools), another part is the considered to be the land grant college of New York (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Human Ecology, School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and College of Veterinary Medicine), making them statutory colleges which are partially funded within the SUNY system (my friends that were New York residents in one of the statutory colleges paid significantly less than I did as a Pennsylvania resident in one of the private colleges). We suck at football, though (but have a pretty good hockey team).
