02/23/2012 - Michigan's David Molk hopes to break the bench-press record at this week's NFL combine. But it's his neck strength that really has people marveling. "Never ... have I seen anything like that," his trainer said...There's no neck-strength drill on the docket, but Molk hopes the 22-plus-inch stump that holds his head to the rest of his body will help set him apart come draft day. "I don't think you can quantify the strength of your neck, I just think that my neck is one of my better things I have, I guess," Molk said. "If you think about it, the first thing I hit with is my face. When you have a guy that's an inch and a half away from you on every single play, you're going to hit him with your head. And whiplash is one of the biggest things that will cause a concussion. My head won't whip, and I can hit people harder, and I'll never get hurt." - Dave Birkett, The Detroit Free Press

"I am truly humbled to be the Rimington Trophy recipient," said Molk. "It's such an honor considering all of the great centers around the country, including the other finalists. It's an individual award, but it's a credit to our offensive line, our team and our coaching staff. I'm proud to represent the University of Michigan."

09/28/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: The Wolverines leaned heavily on QB Denard Robinson last week in their win over San Diego State, and no one expects that approach to change too radically.

As the opposition gets more film to review, the Wolverines will need to pass more and explore other run options.

09/14/2011 - "There's always time in any game against any opponent," Michigan senior center David Molk said about the team's mindset and Hoke's repeated message to the Wolverines. "It's just a matter of setting your mind to it and rallying your team around you. It's just something were comfortable with. It's something we know. We know we can do well." Michigan's resiliency, its dogged resolve in that frantic fourth quarter against Notre Dame, and its eventual success against the Fighting Irish -- those are all components of what Hoke hopes is a building level of confidence. He saw the flaws in the performance, and there were many, but the first-year coach at Michigan is banking on the value of this victory being greater than it appears in the team's record. "It's great to win. It's great to win this rivalry game," Hoke said in the wee hours of the morning following the historic win in the first night game played at Michigan Stadium. "It's good to be on the winning side." - The Sports Xchange

09/03/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: C David Molk - It puts a heck of a load on Molk's shoulders, but he is being talked about as the next "great" Michigan offensive lineman, in the tradition of Jake Long and Dan Dierdorf. Over the past three seasons, the redshirt senior has started in every game where he has been healthy enough to play. If this offense rolls, Molk has to be the point man in that movement. - The Sports Xchange
