that is nice bonus change
Fitz hadn't seen much preseason action and has generally been projected as the odd RB out for the Ravens final roster, but with more than a quarter left in tonight's game, he has 10 carries for 76 yards (and one catch for 9). He also just had a 15-yard negated by a holding penalty, which would have pushed his yards per carry over 9 for the game.
If he does make the roster, he might get a decent amount of work in the first few games of the regular season with Pierce coming off a couple injuries and Rice suspended. If not, tonight's game should at least get him some looks from other teams. Either way, good for him after dealing with the broken leg and last seson's OL issues.
Awesome commercial! Go Blue!!
It's back! Thursday night open thread! A lot of good games on tonight!
So yesterday on the Inside Michigan Football Radio Coaches Show (presented by Consumers Energy), Brandstatter was taking questions for Hoke.
I asked if they were going to award the #11 and/or #21 Legend jerseys this year.
Hoke said no, basically. They answered it at 33:33 of the show.
I think this is a good move. The only player I could see them giving #21 to right now would be Funchess and he already has a Legend number. It could've been possible for him to take #21 and give #87 to Butt, giving Funchess three different jerseys numbers in 3 years but then the universe would explode.
Edit: after looking at it again, Brandstatter didn't actually ask Hoke about #11 & #21 specifically, but if there were going to be anymore Legend numbers this year. So I guess Hoke answered it how he heard it even though I asked about the two numbers.
@brandymancan will the #11 and/or #21 Legend jerseys be given out this year?— † Wolverine Devotee (@WolverinesMike) August 27, 2014
Anyone have a stream considering about 1 percent of the midwest has SEC network and it's a big game?
