He carries a bit more experience than Aaron but they’ve helped a lot,” Jones told Inside United.“Aaron’s up and down [the pitch], his tackling’s probably some of the best I’ve seen, and no one wants to go past him. You see players now stopping, turning around and going the other way, so that’s a credit to him.“Harry’s got the international experience. He’s a big, strong defender who has helped us and I’m sure he’ll be a great addition going forward.” last_img read more

Ohio State LB Darron Lee Doesn’t Understand Why Michigan Brags About Its Success In The 90s

first_imgDarron Lee tweets message bashing the Michigan 1990's teams.Darron Lee Michigan DissIt’s been a while since Michigan’s football program was truly elite. Since the 1990s, probably. Two decades ago, the Wolverines won a national championship (1997), five Big Ten championships and had a winning record (7-2) against rival Ohio State. Since then, they’ve had a couple really good seasons, but success on a national level (and against the Buckeyes) has been inconsistent at best. Ohio State sophomore linebacker Darron Lee doesn’t understand why the Wolverines think they can brag about what happened 20-something years ago. Never knew why the TTUN always talked about the 90’s like anyone remembers…or cared but hey gotta cling to something right?— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) May 19, 2015Michigan’s game against Ohio State – the first Jim Harbaugh vs. Urban Meyer meeting – is set to occur on Nov. 28. We can’t wait for it.last_img read more
