Hey, this is Matt! This is my first post post on UMGameday, and I hope I can continue to contribute articles and posts to this blog.
My first post is concerning Elliott Mealer, a redshirt freshman backup left guard at the U of M. He had a truly tragic moment on Christmas Eve, 2007. He and his family were driving to Midnight Mass with his girlfriend, Hollis Richer, and got into a terrible car crash. Watch this E:60 clip to hear the rest of the story.
I think Zoltan Mesko puts my feelings about Mealer into words better than I ever could at about 10 minutes into the clip. You gotta watch it though!
