I did not make this headline up
Slow time on the board, so I've decided to put together a short list of my personal All Time Michigan Hype Team. Players who were hyped to oblivion by one sector of the fanbase or media or the other, but never really turned into what was hoped. I refrain from including any current players as their books are not yet written so who knows what might happen. I don't write this list as a "man this guy sucked," but more of a "if only he had lived up to the hype." Many of these guys were just the unfortunate victim of injury or circumstance that never worked out. I encourage you to add your own.
QB: Drew Henson, Clayton Richard,
RB: Sam McGuffie, Kevin Grady, Justin Fargas, Pierre Rembert
WR: Antonio Bass (captain of the team and legend in our hearts), Darryl Stonum, Carl Tabb, Je'Ron Stokes
TE: Chris Barnett
OL: Marques Slocum (Fuck Lion), Corey Zirbel, Dann O'neill
DL: Shantee Orr, Larry Harrison, Eugene Germany, Anthony LaLota,
LB: Cobrani Mixon, Marcus Witherspoon, Taylor Hill, Kellen Jones
DB: Darnell Hood, Quiton McCoy, Boubacar Cissoko, Vlad Emilien, JT Turner, Cullen Christian, Demar Dorsey,
K/P: Nate DeLong (sentimental pick. my brother was his HS teammate and long snapper, incredible athlete and had a tremendous leg, just never worked out at M, sadly.)
WolverineNation uploaded a video of the Pee Wee (NTPW) team that Devin Funchess, Terry Richardson, James Ross and Royce Jenkins-Stone played on. It has Ross, Richardson and Jenkin's Stone talking and joking about their past Pee Wee team.
I personally think it's awesome that we have 4 guys coming to play for us who have played together for so long.
Interesting read on Shane Morris over on ESPN:
I really like this kid. He should give us a few great soundbites in the years to come...
Several of our favorite Michigan Men make the Pro Bowl... Brady, Woodson, and Long are all starters...
Edit: Just to clarify, not my handiwork. Found it on mgovideo who found it on mgoblue. Just putting it out there for the people.
I was watching the UTL highlights last night and then immediately watched 'The Game' again.
My first thoughts were that Miller was essentially a Denard against ND. He burned us for big plays in which his receivers came good. Otherwise we controlled the game for long stretches.
Unfortunately for Miller, he's not Denard and couldn't orchestrate a comeback with more than 1 minute on the clock (Denard did it in less than 30!)
