the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
Didn't see this on the blog from yesterday...
Nice article (paywalled) by Chantel yesterday on Wyatt Shallman. He appears to be quite the character (and high character) and also comes from a "talented" family...
The article is paywalled:
RB/DE Wyatt Shallman
Novi (Mich.) Detroit Catholic Central, 6-3, 250, Class of 2013
CONSIDERING: Committed to Michigan.
PERFORMANCE: Eight tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble.
WHAT IMPRESSED: Shallman is being recruited to Michigan for offense, but he also plays defensive end for his high school team. Coming off a hamstring injury, Shallman has showed he is still a force, even if he's not 100 percent. -- Tom VanHaaren
Wyatt Shallman made the list for his defensive abilities. It will be interesting to see what position he ends up at in college.
Rather a slow day (really, the last week overall, save for the burst of posts regarding the NFL Draft) here, so I thought I would share this...
Tremendous recently did an excellent interview with 2013 commit Wyatt Shallman. You can read the full interview here:
I would, however, like to quote the well-worded start of the summary, which caps what I think is one of the best interviews by Tremendous to date:
"Wyatt is a multi-faceted guy who is already developing a chip on his shoulder coming into this season. For Michigan, he'll be a running back. Any talk otherwise should end now and I think he's ready to prove some people wrong."
I'm at the game with MGoGarbs, keeping track of the game for you. We'll be keeping track of stats for Wyatt Shallman, Matt Godin, and Drake Johnson. Most of those stats should come when Pioneer has the ball. Let me know if you have any questions or requests for information.
I don't know if anyone mentioned this or not(and if they did my mistake), but Wyatt Shallman was carted off the field a couple of weeks ago against U of D and was in for very few if any at all snaps against St. Mary's last week. He was walking around the sideline but I think it's something to look out for. Also, this weekend Matt Godin and Shallman play James Ross and St. Mary's(again) for the Catholic League Championship at Ford Field.
