Mike Lantry, 1972
For those of you posting in the never ending Spring Battle of MANBALL vs Evil I would like to point out 1 little tiny thing.
Has anybody actually looked at SDS offense last year?
Go on Youtube and check out their highlights or look at the video in Magnus's post.
Magnus points out that 1/3 of the plays are run from the Power G series that almost every team in the country runs(yes even Mich ran it last year as well), but what he doesn't point out is that SDS ran about half their sets from a spread look. They run some zone blocking. They ran some ace sets that we ran a lot when we Tate was under center in 09. They did this with a qb that's running ability looked a little Sheridan esque(shifty but wasn't going anywhere). This should not be that big of a transition.
The bottom line is they don't look that much different than we did last year, they just ran more out of a 3WR look in the I formation than we did. It's not a stretch for them to install the exact same offense at Michigan and just call more Shotgun sets and let Denard run a little.
So before you post again just watch the videos. It should alleviate most of your concerns. Just don't get down because none of their plays worked against TCU. They were really good........oh wait for an offense to be good it has to score a bunch of points against defenses that are better than them. Scratch that we're doomed.
Most of us on this board would be more than thrilled to add either of these QB's in this recruiting class. Given the choice however, which would you rather have? Both seem to fit that mold of big strong armed kids, that are the quintessential Michigan QB recruit.
Disclaimer: I'm well aware that our chances of obtaining Gunner Kiel's services are slim.
Still weird to see Denard under center.
"People may say it's underwear, but everyone wears underwear -- it's not like I'm doing something risque," Tebow said this week from his home in Denver. "I wouldn't do anything that goes against what I stand for. The whole campaign is very classy."
Can't wait to see the photoshops
EDSBS has more fun with the Tressel signing photos by putting some text around some of the pictures (Skylarkin'!!) which is pretty funny. However, I scrolled the comments to find a genius LSUfreek mashup of Tressel signing RR's head. The look on the kids' face next to him is priceless. Just absolute genius. I just included the link below so they would get the traffic for their efforts.
