I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
I've read the official release about Fan Day but was wondering if anyone knows any additional details. Will there just be autographs on the concourses or will there be other things going on? Last year was great because there were activities for the kids in addition to the outdoor practice field (next to the Glick Fieldhouse) being open. It was wide open and festive and my boys had a great time! I might be less inclined to go this year if it's just a few autograph lines to stand in.
Sorry if this has already been posted, but I couldn't find it anywhere (maybe it's because the blog just crapped itself). So Rittenberg asks Troy if he can talk to T-Wolf and then Troy goes on to say T-Wolf would slap Adam if he were to bring him out. Thought it was funny with some other good stuff.
Particularly enjoyed the following quote: "Not many tackles or guards have dealt with an end boasting 4.1 speed."
That's cause they don't fucking exist.
The Michigan-Indiana game is on ESPN Classic right now. This is for those of you who want to relive a sweet comeback while being serenaded by Pam Ward.
Nice to see him making plays and being noticed, even if it's practice [obligatory practice we're talkin' practice] and second team defense. As a Jets fan, I sure hope he makes the roster and helps out (especially if Revis continues his holdout).
Lots of people mention lack of elite speed and/or ankle injury prior to the combine to explain why he didn't get drafted. I think it had at least as much to do with the fact that we didn't have the luxury of showcasing his ability to play tight man defense because he had to help make up for weaknesses throughout our secondary. He did that fairly well, and I could see him helping the Jets as a nickel, dime, or safety type, and if we needed it as a primary cb.
Really wish he could help Michigan this year--and he would have been better able to showcase his skills with a now competent Woolfolk opposite him, resulting in much higher draft stock (obviously)--but as far as I'm concerned the Jets got a steal and I hope he continues to impress.
