in town for free camps
I'm not sure if this has been posted on the MGoBoard, my apologies if it has... I found this on ESPN dated 12/20 about the The Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas All-Star game.
Kris Frost (Matthews, N.C./Butler) won the North Carolina Defensive MVP for the game. The four-star athlete could potentially play on all three levels of the defense in certain situations, but fits best at linebacker and seven tackles, three tackles-for-loss, and a pass break-up. A good overall athlete, the uncommitted Frost can be physical against the run and with a nice closing burst he can deliver a pop on contact. He flashed his ability in coverage on his pass break-up as he stayed on the hip of the intended target and as the ball came he reached in and knocked it down.
Looks nice, lets hope he joins us....could really use someone like this.
Since the ability to read David Brandon's mind is not one of my superpowers, I figured I better start dumping my Harbaugh porn now. Michigan came into this game with the #2 scoring defense (6.8ppg) and Harbaugh leading the nation in passing efficiency. The first half was a complete disaster and it seemed inevitable that Bo was going to lose yet another bowl game. Tune in tomorrow to see if he can rally his troops in the 2nd half.
I noticed that ESPN has begun reporting which players will be academically ineligible for many teams but Michigan has no reports yet. I know the coaching staff said they dont anticipate any problems but does anyone know when for sure they are released?
I am curious as to how many "should have been" touchdowns we had this year. Here are the requirements:
1) WR must have been open with no one between him & the endzone, or already in the endzone.
2) The pass to that WR must have actually been thrown.
3) The pass must have been either dropped, under/over thrown, or batted away
Happy hols, everyone. With the Gator Bowl just days a way, I'm wondering re the degree to which a big win or loss would influence opinions of RR here. In other words, would a win silence many in the anti-RR camp? Would a loss -- a double-digit one -- push many pro-RRs in the anti camp?
And what about the undecideds? It's my sense that most people are somewhat on the fence. I could be wrong -- I usually am -- but I just get the sense that a big win or loss would tip a lot of opinions. Am I wrong?
Saw this on rittenbergs blog. i know some people can't stand him, but i've always thought herbsreit was pretty honest wth his opinions. says some pretty telling stuff about his feelings on TP.
