So, this article from Philly.com has an unusual little passage:
When asked whether any of his phone exchanges so far with head coaches had been memorable, Slocum laughed and said, "Yeah, with the guy from Michigan [Lloyd Carr].''Update: also, this:
"He was so excited. Just about screaming,'' Slocum said. "I couldn't hear for a couple of days. He gave me a good vibe, though.''
Fluck said the players were neither overwhelmed nor star-struck. He was floored that the young athletes did not recognize Bo Schembechler when the legendary former Michigan coach entered the room.
"They actually asked me who he was," Fluck said with a laugh. "I had to give them a whole lesson."
