Have you heard the one about how Michigan won’t publicly release its football roster?

(If not, read this.)

After some back and forth with the school, NJ Advanced Media finally got something resembling a roster yesterday, but they note it is not quite complete.

Leave it to the NCAA to scoop everyone.

While the rest of us wait for Michigan to fill out its roster ahead of its season-opener against Florida, NCAA.com already has a roster with not only names of players but also their position and in some cases the number they will wear.

(Land of 10 already put together a list of numbers freshmen are expected to wear.)

In others, the number listed includes other characters, leading us to believe this is the roster used by statisticians during games.

The roster also includes three players who weren’t included in the record posted by NJ.com.
