Today is Thursday, April 20, 2017, and here’s your Breakfast of Victors…


Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and others on his staff spoke to Detroit-area high school coaches at the Horatio Williams Foundation in Detroit Wednesday night.

According to Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News, Harbaugh also spoke with reporters at the event. Harbaugh said while quarterback Wilton Speight is the No. 1 QB coming out of spring, it’s not a done deal that he will remain there ahead of Brandon Peters or John O’Korn.

“It’s a meritocracy,” Harbaugh told reporters.

Harbaugh also said wide receiver Eddie McDoom and offensive tackle Jon Runyan suffered ankle injuries in the spring game but neither injury is considered long term.

Defensive coordinator Don Brown and other Michigan coaches held coaching clinics during the evening. It was obvious that the loss at Ohio State still motivates Brown.

Deep in the heart of Texas
