a vitally important recap of all the dumb tweets sent during the Harbaugh coaching search
The BTN's Tom Dienhart put together a (ridiculously early) ranking of the B1G quarterback units. He ranks Michigan's Denard Robinson-led unit first. Link:
I thought it was an interesting exercise, even if premature. I like the notion of ranking the QB units on a team-by-team basis, but it's hard to put much confidence in a May ranking of QBs, especially when some have not (or have barely) seen the field.
I'm am pretty confident that our friends in E. Lansing will be miffed that their QBs drew a rank of 9th overall.
1. Michigan (Denard Robinson)
2. Ohio State (Braxton Miller)
3. Purdue (Caleb TerBush, Robert Marve)
4. Wisconsin (Maryland transfer Danny O'Brien)
5. Nebraska (Taylor Martinez)
6. Illinois (Nathan Scheelhaase)
7. Minnesota (MarQueis Gray)
8. Iowa (Vandenberg)
9. Michigan State (Maxwell)
10. Penn State (Matt McGloin, Rob Bolden, Paul Jones)
11. Northwestern (Kain Colter, Trevor Siemian)
12. Indiana (Tre Roberson)
In this recent article about Tate it looks like he's working with former NFL and CFLer with a somewhat similar skill set in Jeff Garcia. Fighting to be a 3rd string QB for Hamilton Tiger Cats. Hope he has put it together, but I remain skeptical.
As I started watching this video and saw Herschel Walker in an Auburn Jersey I immediately thought no they are not going to do that to Desmond. Yep they did it to Desmond.
If you have kids have them look away this is not easy to watch. You do get a money shot at the end that will make you smile. Don't worry Mrs. Kass not that kinda money shot.
Edit: Further research indicates this idea was born from Eddie George who likes to imagine himself on different teams than OSU. Can't blame him but it figures a Buckeye would dream up something unwatchable,
Guys, the B1G is gonna be in serious trouble against Nebraska this year. I don't know if we can take them. Taylor Martinez's throwing motion is nearing perfection!
Just look at that beauty!
Make a memory.
I wrote up a scouting report on Phoenix (AZ) Brophy Prep wide receiver Devon Allen. Most of us have seen the reports on his track speed. He can definitely scoot. He's not very shifty, but with a couple big leapers (who aren't extremely fast) in Jaron Dukes and Csont'e York, Allen would be a good complement to open up some underneath routes and stretch the defense.
