I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
So I see that Tacopants is eligible for Michigan again in 2009! Forcier had a pass to him near the end of the game. The difference this year is that Koger is tall enough and good enough to make the circus catch that Tacopants never seemed to get his mitts on.
I have a question for receiver types. What is harder to catch: a circus pass (too high) like the one Forcier put up for Koger, or a bullet at short range, like the pass from DR to Kelvin Grady? They both seem difficult in their own unique way. Regardless, awesome that Koger & Grady both caught the respective difficult catch.
No hating here, just an opinion question...
I thought there looked to be several instances today where he could have thrown the ball, and instead, took off running. Don't get me wrong, I know he's the home-run potential, and he had several nice 6-8 yard gains. I want him to be that option.
- BUT -
I also think that by his 2nd or 3rd time in, the D started keying on the run too much. I felt like, if only he could hit a couple more passes the D would loosen up, making his runs more effective.
Do you think he was play-called all the runs, or do you think he gave up too soon trusting his legs?
Anyone see Utah State's QB just glide down the field for a touchdown?
That just made me think what Denard could be like this year!
Side Note: David Reed grew up 20 minutes from here and my HS played him as well as his brother, Jordan, who is going to Florida on a schollie, we beat them this past year 27-6
so it's subtle but Doug is talking to rod smith and asks him about why nick and tate might win the starting job, but only mentions DR as getting "a bunch of snaps"
In the unfortunate event that Nick Sheridan is announced as Michigan's starting quarterback please please do not boo him. As a matter of fact, dont boo anyone. If you must express your disappointment, save your boos for Rich Rodriguez, he will be announced last. Sheridan's lack of ability is certainly no fault of his own. Last year I placed a lot of unmerited hatred upon his head, where in reality it was Rodriguez's incredible lapse of judgement that caused him to start over Threet.
I pray that much of this quarterback "competition" is coach speak. It would be incredibly disappointing if Forcier(or the fleet footed Robinson) has not distanced himself at all from Sheridan, contrary to the promise we all saw in the spring game(and Robinson's explosiveness reported from practice). I really cannot see any reason to start Sheridan, as this would essentially be conceding the season to another throw away year. If Michigan is going to be terrible anyway, why wouldn't Rodriguez get the young guys some experience? There is really no good reason.
I remain excited about the upcoming season. If Michigan can remain healthy on defense(a big if) I think that outside the quarterback spot they are one of the more talented teams in the big ten(not saying much at this point). I pray that we are talented at the qb spot too, but even if we are not it is not the fault of the kids in uniform. Blame the man who put them there.
A quote from Angelique Chengelis (Via Twitter): "Can't get over how much UM QB Denard Robinson looks and smiles like Desmond Howard."
I think she may be on to something:
I believe we've done a look-alike thread before; if not, does anyone have any more good ones from the team?
Edit: Easy on the pic size, please.
