Over at Tremendous there is a great interview with PATRICK KUGLER. He has given very few interviews, and this one is a very nice read. You can see why Patrick is such a critical recruit, and why he is rated so highly. Having a father coaching OL in the NFL and a brother playing in the Big 10 puts him way ahead of the pack in football intelligence. Kugler is one of those guys, like Molk and Kovacs, who have an edge and will play way beyond what might be expected.
Here is an insightful quote that shows Kugler's maturity and understanding of what is involved in playing center at Michigan:
Tremendous: The belief is that you are Michigan's center of the future. How do you prepare yourself mentally knowing you might be called upon earlier in your career than maybe the other guys in the class?
Patrick: I know every kid wants to get on the field as early as they can, but I am really looking forward to redshirting. Center is a difficult position and I want to use that year to develop a college-ready body and learn the system as best I can so that when I am called upon I am ready to go from the start.
This is a long interview, but if you're starved for info, it is well worth the time to read it.
Not sure if I missed something but where is our fateful recruiting hero of the deep sea Aquaman? He has not posted in over two weeks and I am wondering if the JLA should be alerted. I must say I enjoyed his posts and many updates. I am sure this is all part of contract negotiations with Brian and I am making more out of this then need be but hell its hump day and I am bored at work.
Where art thou Aquaman?
Take it away, Aquaman.
Who wouldn't be happy with either guy? However, it would be nice to have the top rated quarterback and runningback in the Midwest for '13.
Hey guys, just wanted to let everyone know that Brian and I have come to an agreement to bring me on board in a contributing role. I'm really looking forward to it, and once I feel like changing my profile picture and what not, you'll know my real name and what I look like. Super pumped to be part of the team though...this has been my favorite site for quite some time now.
