Nick Baumgardner Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Jul 16, 2019 (NOTE: This is part of a summer series analyzing each of Michigan football's 18 incoming freshmen. Each story will include insight from Steve Lorenz, a recruiting analyst at 247Sports.com) Late in the 2018 recruiting cycle, Michigan football took a commitment from Michael Barrett — an undersized, but athletic, quarterback from Georgia. Then, the Wolverines spent the bulk of the following year trying to figure out where to play him. Wide receiver? Running back? Somewhere on defense? Barrett ultimately landed at linebacker this spring, after spending time at wideout last year. Will that be his final stop? We'll see. Was he worth the take? Michigan absolutely thinks so, as he's still viewed as a player who could turn into a game-altering athlete some day.

The film was written by Mindy Kaling, who co-stars in the film alongside Emma Thompson as Thompson's late-night host character's first-ever female writer.

But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youngest ones in curls. There were also other big moments outside the bounds of entertainment — a moon landing, a war that rolled on despite rising protests against it — but those too had implications for pop culture in decades to come. This is 1969 from 50 years on, the good, the bad, the ugly and the … [Read more...] about 50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture
