also duty-free guys falling over and grabbing their shins
after watching denard break that 87 yard run on saturday i thought to myself when was the last time i saw a michigan player break a run where he just out ran angles, guys 5 yards in front of him and just plain ran away from everyone on the field... the only player i could think of was tyrone wheatley... the 1st wheatley run that popped into my head was his rose bowl run of 80+ yards where he just ran up the middle untouched for the most part... here is wheatlys tribute video from our good friend wolverinehistorian...
both players are/were track guys... wheatleys main event was the 60m hurddles... another thing to remember is wheatley played at or around 220lbs... so the question is who is faster??? i'm going to say wheatly wins but it would be close...
Man they are starting earlier and earlier every year. At this rate, we'll have 5 star rankings of 7th grade kids in a few years. Michigan targets of note (love the emphasis on defense):
Jordan Diamond (Chris Bryant's teammate) - OT
Dan O'Brien - DT (local kid, must get)
Chris Wormley - DE (OSU-Michigan battle, we've got to land this kid)
James Ross - MLB (local kid, must get)
Vincent Valentine - DT
Pat Forde's column on ESPN
Terrelle Pryor is not the most talked-about quarterback in college football. He's not even the most talked-about quarterback in the Big Ten Conference, not after Michigan's Denard Robinson went Vince Young Plus Tax on Notre Dame Saturday.
Edit: Don't bother reading the article. Its a total Pryor slurp-fest. I just thought it was great to see Denard taking the media by storm, so much that he worked his way into the first paragraph of an article on OSU's QB.
'Hoke Hey" I love this. Im sure someone can post the link from the freep, im not sure how to do that. This can be a great team motto, Go Blue!!
I just stumbled on Don Banks' column and happened to notice this reference to Denard. I have never known Banks to cover anything but the NFL so I thought this was pretty interesting.
