fair point that
I guess I missed the CRex post awhile back and only first read about this after Heiko asked Borges about it at yesterday's presser. Essentially receviers break down into 3 categories:
Hands Guy: Dependable at catching the ball.
Deep Threat: Can get six points
Route Runner: Most likely to be open.
How do our WRs fit into these categories? I see it as the following:
Route Runner: Jeremy Gallon is poised for stardom and has multitude of shifty moves and excellent footwork to consistently get open.
Hands Guy: Drew Dileo not only provides YAC but will grab anything close to his catching radius.
Deep Threat: Jehu Chesson looks to fill this role (along with Gallon).
Losing Amara Darboh defintely hurts but we at least seem to have the depth to fill in for his absence. Borges went out of his way to day how suprisingly fast Darboh is but I think that was more in relation to his size. Chesson has legitimate track speed and we will need him to at least run deep routes and threaten the field vertically.

Who else is getting excited for fantasy football?! Found a piece about which Lions (other than Calvin) to potentially have on your roster this year.
Well, we've made it to the last Friday afternoon without college football coming. One week from now many of us will be itching to leave the office, out of towners like myself will have been packed up for the trip to Ann Arbor. With games next Thursday and Friday nights the season is finally here. What are you up to this final game-free weekend (Until Wife Day and Wife Day II Wife-Day-Harder)? What will you be doing almost exactly 193 hours from right now?
Not to be impatient but I am... where's the best preview for CMU? I'm not seeing much and wondered if anyone had a take.
Looks like CMU is OK even with the loss of Fisher at LT, Cater is the starter at QB - he was good in HS as I recall, Titus Davis had 880 yards last year at WR, DEs are young but promising, LB crew is good, DBs are missing another guy to the NFL. The team has seen success. They won their bowl game. These guys don't look bad.
It's getting close to that time. These guys beat Sparty.
This is the best I could comeup with from Dr. Google...
EDIT: I overlooked the Iowa win last year -as many of you have pointed out. Another B1G team bites the MAC dust. I added the USAToday rundown
The estimable UM graduate Jon Chait has used his New York Magazine column to weigh in on the subject of financial benefits for college athletes:
The catalyst is Manziel's autograph-gate, and how major college sports would lose their appeal if they effectively became a minor league. He does not go into the deeper levels of possible compensation that Brian has discussed, but he does cite MgoBlog!
Note: For those who do not know, Chait is a very avid and knowledgeable UM football fan... and obviously reads the best blog.
