Hey Heiko, I can eat and upload videos at the same time. :p
Open thread to post interesting nuggets coming out from Team 133's first practice.
From Chris Balas, Stephen Nesbitt, Sam Webb, & Wolverine Nation twitter:
Roy Roundtree: Amara Darboh was the most impressive freshman today
Will Campbell weighed in today at 310 lbs. Hoke would be surprised if he didn't play well this year.
Gardner did take snaps at wide receiver today.
Jibreel Black returned bigger. Both Black and Roh impressed in offseason conditioning.
Ricardo Miller will play TE and WR.
Fitz Toussaint and Frank Clark did not participate in first practice today.
Denard untied the shoelaces on the mannequin sporting his Cowboys Classic jersey:
I haven't seen one of these this year, and I thought it would be nice and tidy if we kept the NFL stuff in one thread...
Just to kick things off...10 man ppr, 10yds rushing or receiving =1pt...
I am in a league with a ridiculous amount of bench slots(8!) which has me thinking about stealing handcuffs(guys that will be useful when/if the starter goes down). In what order would you pick these guys?
The earlier thread got me wanting to do this. The draft is August 11th (Saturday) at 8 ET. The 6 power conferences + Independents are available to draft from. There are 4 divisions with 6 teams in each.
Please only join if you'll be available for a live draft.
EDIT: Alright, from what I can tell, it looks like just leave your email address, and then I add it to the list. I don't see any other way to invite. If you don't feel safe putting it out on here, mine is [email protected] so just send it there.
Not to be outdone by Nebraska's tribute to The Noid of Dominos commercial fame, Wisconsin just unveiled the "feaux-back" uniforms they will wear in Lincoln this fall:
I'm doing a Fantasy Football draft right now for my NFL auction/keeper league. Basically, every year we do a two round NCAA draft and you get that players rights when/if they go to the NFL.
Some players of note taken last year still in college:
RB Knile Davis, ARK
QB Matt Barkley, USC
RB Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina (I own his rights)
QB Landry Jones, OKL
RB Malcolm Brown, TEX
QB Denard Robinson, MICH
I hold the 8th and 9th pick in the draft. I tend to favour WR becuase they seem easier to project to the next level, but if a real playmaking RB is there I would consider them. I would not consider a QB with either pick. So far the draft has gone as follows:
1. WR Robert Woods, USC
2. RB Montee Ball, WISC
3. WR Keenan Allen, CAL
4. WR Sammy Watkins, CLEM
5. WR Marquess Wilson, WASH ST
EDIT: 6. WR Marquis Lee, USC
I'm coming up at 8 and 9, who should I look at? Here are the three I'm considering as of now:
RB DeAnthony Thomas ORE
WR Marquis Lee USC
WR Dorial Green-Beckham MISSOURI
Black mamba I see being a Percy Harvin type at the NFL level. Lee looks to be a stud. DGB, I have to grab now because after this year he will likely be the first pick in this draft next year and I think he has the highest ceiling.
What say you MGoBoard? Anyone else I should consider?
