Mike Lantry, 1972
Just watched the Elite 11 QB camp on ESPN and found it interesting that they put the campers through some of the same training that Brady Hoke subjected the seniors to earlier in the year!
This was a test of a new technique that I'm using to rip and process ESPN3 streams. It's not 720p but if people think the quality is watchable, I can have full games and highlights up on Saturday nights this year.
The whole episode:
Even though we already know the results, I thought some may be interested in checking out our future QB. By the way, Shane is rocking a UM hat in the opening scene, I would expect no less.
Last day of Elite 11 competition. Shane Morris still has not been able to break into the coaches' rankings despite glowing reviews from various recruiting analysts observing the on-field portion of the competition.
Final day of competition includes red zone and 2 minute drill work. Get it done Shane.
Reached the final day. Red Zone 7on7 & Pressure Cooker 2 minute drill. #Elite11

Third set of Elite 11 Coaches' rankings released this morning:
7. Del Rio
The Elite 11 Coaches released their initial rankings through 3 days of competition this evening, and it's kind of surprising considering the reports that were coming from the recruiting websites.

No Shane Morris, Brice Ramsey, Cooper Bateman, Kevin Olsen, Danny Etling, or JT Barrett. Competition continues this evening.
I was wondering about this today after hearing the news that Robert Bolden has disappeared from PSU. Maybe too early to judge this class (now Juniors/RS Soph), but their outlook is not good. Hopefully Gardner will reach his potential unlike the other star Michigan QBs that year (Bolden-uncertain status at PSU, Boisture-retired at MSU).
Blake Bell (committed to Oklahoma) - RS Soph backup who plays Tim Tebow role for Oklahoma in red zone with Landry Jones entering his final season.
Joe Boisture (committed to Michigan State) - retired from football.
Robert Bolden (committed to Penn State) - Junior who lost starting QB to Matt McGloin last 2 years. Not attended summer workouts and classes this year and future status uncertain.
Tyler Bray (committed to San Diego State) - Switched commitment to Tennessee. 2 year junior starter at Tennessee. Should be one of the elite QBs in college football this year.
Barry Brunetti (committed to West Virginia) - Junior who transferred last year to Ole Miss. Supplanted as starting QB midseason last year and now battling for starting job again.
Devin Gardner (committed to Michigan) - obvious.
Jake Heaps (committed to BYU)- Junior who just transferred this year to Kansas along with Dayne Crist. Charlie Weis: the refugee camp for failed Elite11 QBs?
Austin Hinder (committed to Cal) - RS Soph not on the two deep depth chart.
Nick Montana (committed to Washington) - RS Soph who just transferred this year to JC.
Jesse Scroggins (uncommitted) - RS Sophomore battling for backup position at USC behind Matt Barkley.
Phillip Sims (committed to Alabama) - RS Soph who just transferred this year to Virginia.
Chandler Whitmer (committed to Illinois) - RS Soph who transferred to JC last year due to lack of playing time (behind Scheelhaase) and just enrolled at UConn. Maybe Michigan sees him next year in 2013 when play at UConn.
