Today's batch of links looks at the high expectations (!) for the Lions, the emergence of Drew Stanton (!!), Michigan football news, and more:
- ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert senses some actual optimism coming from Lions fans and the Detroit press. I remain skeptical. Really skeptical.
- Tom Kowalski looks at the progress of Lions quarterback Drew Stanton since the beginning of camp. He's been a very pleasant surprise in the first two preseason games.
- Corey at Bless You Boys projects Armando Gallaraga's 2009 season based on how good (and lucky) he has been so far this year.
- Michigan news: John Ferrera (formerly a defensive lineman) will now provide depth to the offensive line. Also, MGoBlog (via the Daily) figures out just what the hell is going on with long snapper George Morales' scholarship.
