"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
Just remember a debate going on a little while ago about whether UM has any guys who could go 1st round next year.
Taylor Lewan is #24 overall and 2nd rated OL.
Craig Roh #31 overall
Edit: Bodogblog pointed out that Lewan is #31 in a different CBS writer's top 32
Can someone explain the how CBS and Fox determine what games to broadcast in a given location?
I live in Chicago. I HATE the Bears (Vikings fan since Joe Kapp played). I thought I had an idea of what I could expect to see when the Bears are home and when they're away. But, yesterday made NO sense. The Bears were @ Seattle on Fox. So, we got no early game on Fox but did get early and late games on CBS. What games did we get? Early: KC v Philly, Late: Pitt v Cinncy. WTF!
There seems to be a lot of Packer fans in Chicago-land (which is understandable) and we get Packer broadcasts for the most part (GB was @ Rams yesterday). But, those two CBS games made ZERO sense to me.
I've been a DirecTV subscriber for quite some time now, perhaps I'll shame them into giving me NFL Sunday Ticket for the rest of the season for free. I ended up watching the Vikings game on-line (and am glad I did!)
So, if anyone can shed a little light on how things work, I would truly appreciate it.
Anyone else notice that the cbs coverage of this evening's games, especially the pitt-xavier and nova-duke games, has been excellent? The commentary (Verne Lundquist/Bill Raftery) has been exceptionally good. They don't try to force anything, they don't get too opinionated. They offer decent opinions, keep the viewers informed, and get excited and into the game. They're people you wouldn't mind watching a game and sharing a beer with. However, they're not preachy and elitist. They're common folks who just love basketball. Why can't we have more commentary like this?
What to make of this?
Link Via Recruiting Planet:
Can only assume their is/are silent commit(s) to UM at that position.
How does everybody feel about Michigan's situation at DB and,
specifically at CB, in 2009 and beyond? We lose Trent, Harrison, Doug
Dutch and Charles Stewart. That will leave Michigan with the following
CBs - Warren (Jr), Cissoko (So), Wollfolk (So)
S - Brown (Sr), Chambers (Jr), Michael Williams (So), Branden Smith (So)
Unclear if CB or S - JT FLoyd (R Fr), Justin Turner (Fr)
or may not be a DB - James Rogers (Jr) is probably a WR, DeWayne Peace
(Fr) is probably a CB, Justin Feagin (R Fr) is looking more and more
like a DB, Mike Jones (Fr) and Isaiah Bell (Fr) - at least one of which
is probably an OLB.
So, what I'm getting at is this: is anybody else worried about CB in 2009 and 2010?
I know Michigan lists Turner at CB, but it seems both recruiting sites see him as a safety - reasonable for a guy his size. Peace may end up being stellar at CB. If Peace, Turner and Floyd all end up as good corners, maybe we're ok, but isn't it just as possible that only one of those guys ends up being a good corner?
Besides the starters (Cissoko and Warren), who will provide depth in 2009?
If Warren leaves after his junior year, who will start opposite Cissoko in 2010?
Sky isn;t falling or anything, but this seems like an area to address in recruiting this year.
