T. Forcier believes he is the Quarterback for the University of Michigan. And he has a lot of the mixings, background, and proper moxy or swagger to grow and fulfill his scholarship over these 4 years. He is the paradigmatic RichRod Spread QB. If Henne was the ultimate maintainer drop back QB for the Lloyd days, the Forcier is that guy for Rich. Focier is a student and then a student of the game. He is a football player only by association to those two. The one thing you can tell, especially in his Big Ten Network interview was a desire to be a coach and assist maker. But not some brah-jocko type who wants his picture on the cover of any mag. Now if you are the type of Quarterback who relies on body over mind, it is really difficult to compete against a guy like Forcier over the long haul. Forcier does not need touches or reps to be consistent. He is not a guy, to use a basketball analogy who shoots to find his rhythm or spot. He is in rhythm from the minute he is on the court or field. And guys like that are tough to compete with over the long haul. Simply because he engages the game first from a mental way. This is what made Michael Hart. He was not the guy at first. But he came in and was WAY more mentally tough and developed than anyone there in RB dept. There were faster guys in the fold. When you're brother played under Lloyd and you're whole family knows Ann Arbor and the University coupled with the reality that you are ideal for the spread system, the Forcier kid will be tough to dethrone.
Now I have not seen Denard throw or play. I hear he is fast though. If I was that young man I would begin memorizing the playbook not only superficially but in a 3D mindset...and I would start today. As far as Devin goes, you are tall, fast and really threw the ball well in your last game against East Grand Rapids. I am looking forwards to seeing you both play for Michigan. But know that playing around a guy like Forcier will only make you better. And vice versa, same goes for Tate.
