Moosman: "Michigan Played Conservative"

Offensive lineman <b>David Moosman</b> from Liberyvill, Ill. was in the stands with a couple of friends Saturday as Michigan fell to Notre Dame 28-20. Monday evening he gave GoBlueWolverine Magazine his evaluation of the game and how it affected his list of schools.

Four-star offensive lineman David Moosman is another top prospect that once had Michigan at the top of his list of schools and was at one time thought of as a shoe-in to head to Ann Arbor for his college career. Michigan's lead slipped as more schools became interested. Following the Wolverines latest debacle in South Bend it appears everyone is now even. "I don't really have a leader now," Moosman said. "My top five are Michigan, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Iowa, and UCLA. Those are the five schools I'll visit."

The 6 foot 4, 260-pound lineman said he hasn't set up any visits. "I've been lazy," he said, laughing. "Really though, our season has been hectic and I don't want to miss any practice."

He had his eye on the Michigan offense. "Michigan played conservative," he said. "It looked to me like they wanted to make Notre Dame lose rather than go after the win. I thought the offensive line did well, especially in pass blocking."

Moosman was in the stands with pals Dan Doering from Barrington, Ill. High and Dace Richardson from Wheaton, Ill. South High School and said they all had a good time. "After the blocked punt the Notre Dame crowd went crazy," he said. "They were all extatic." Moosman had to leave the game early due to a prior commitment but listened to the end of the game on the radio.

Moosman said he plans on going to a few more games this year. "I am planning on going to the Michigan-Iowa game (Sept. 25) and a game at Iowa, I'm not sure which one though," he said. "I went to a Wisconsin game last year."

Libertyville has jumped out to a 3-0 start, averging 41 points a game, and visit Vernon Hills this Friday.
