Mike Lantry, 1972
Well the preseason scrimmage has been played.
J. T. Floyd and James Turner were on the first team for cornerbacks, and it would seem Marvin Robinson is amongst the first team safeties. Soft zone defense for pass coverage was prefered to bump and run coverage.
The linebackers seem more competent than last year, but experience were be valuable for Moundros over the course of the year.
What other observations were seen by members at the scrimmage.
Any thoughts on the freshman - Christian and Avery?
Looks like Steven Threet might be the starter this year at ASU. Good to see, and I wish him all the best. I hope he pulls ahead of the other guy and has a great year.
I shared this on my Twitter page, but for everyone living in 1998 I thought I'd mention it here, too.
2012 Ohio DE Chris Wormley will be at Michigan's fan day tomorrow. He doesn't think he'll be at the U Conn game though.
As noted before with Chris, Ohio State has shown him
illegal amounts a lot of attention so far, so they're in the lead. I talked to him tonight and he had this to say about the situation.
Ohio State has shown me the most love so far, so they lead. Anything can happen in two years though. I'm probably going to wait until my signing day, so I still have a long time to go. I still root for Michigan on Saturdays, and I'm a fan of them, so we'll see.
We will see indeed.
I was very proud of a recent exchange with a Sparty over email, so I thought I'd share. If it helps just one Michigan fan realize that civil discourse is possible with people of lower educational and moral standards, then I've made a difference in this world...
(I kid I kid Sparties... don't be so sensitive)
Anyway, Sparty compliments some of my work and requests a wallpaper of Greg Jones (?!)
I write back:
"Appreciate the request. but to be honest with you, there's no way I would ever do a MSU wallpaper. I'm sure you understand. Thanks for emailing."
"I understand. I probably dislike UM as much as you dislike MSU. Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask though. go green"
See?.... Very professional and calm interaction between two people that wouldn't piss on the other if he were on fire....
My job here is done.
