Greg Skrepenak was one of the best offensive lineman in Michigan history. The All American and future NFLer played for both Bo Schembechler and Gary Moeller. He has gone through a lot since his days in Ann Arbor including a heroin addicted wife and an 18 month stay in prison for a white collar crime.

Skrepenak still follows his alma mater passionately and has some interesting observations on the problems with the Wolverines including how they compare to Michigan State, “It seems like the roles are being reversed. They are playing Michigan type football.” Skrepenak adds that coach Dantonio said after the game,” cage the tiger before the game and let the tiger out during it, more or less we were talking before the game rather than let our play do the talking during the game and that is what frustrated me the most, when did Michigan State become Michigan.”

He supports Brady Hoke but also said he expects the team to be at a competitive level next season, “the excuse that they were young this year will not apply. Next year will be the tell-tale sign.”
