    Would be massive with some attrition happening at the LB spot and Dixon being arguably our best guy there. Throw in moving Stille to DE and Gifford very much up in the air for 2018 and we need this to come to fruition.

    It would certainly be a huge deal to have him available during this transition year.

    Just wondering out loud, is this a bigger deal for us or for Michigan?

    No doubt it's a big deal for Michigan, but our defense definitely gets better with Dixon on the field.
    Plus, we won't have to wait for a year for Dixon to bust through the line and knock Patterson senseless.

    But what is the Gifford comment all about?

    He's been injured and it's not entirely clear if he will be back from that injury.

    I knew that Gifford had been injured...my reply about "not being entirely clear if he will be back from that injury" was based on SSO saying "Gifford very much up in the air for 2018".

    But Dixon didn't have a loud mouthed lawyer blowing smoke up the NCAA's skirt about how the coaches lied/misled the players about how bad the UMiss situation was going to be. The squeaky wheel gets the oil.

    Probably so...but gotta like the precedent that looks to be set for Dixon to get to play right away.

    Squeaky wheel sets the precedence, which Dixon could subsequently follow.
