This is just a hypothetical.
Who wins our third string spot *IF* Threet were to transfer? I know nothing about Nader, so who is expected to be better between the 2?
Probably the guy that started games last year, if only for the fact that he has experience in the system. I also think that Sheridan wasn't that bad against Minnesota, and that is what the coaches likely saw in practice.
Is Michigan's opponents if they see significant time. No offense to either, but yeah...
I just wanted to know who would be better head to head. I thought I remembered hearing that Nader was supposed to be a spread type of QB...
Nader doesn't have the size, neither does Sheridan. They played in the same mhsaa league and Nader put up much better numbers. Nader is faster and has a better arm. He doesn't have the football iq of Sheridan but that will come with time. Nader could run the UM offense better, not much of a doubt in my mind. If Nader was even 6 foot instead of 5'7" he would be a d1 starter.
he's 5'7"? lol
Good info though, thanks.
Nick Sheridan has football IQ?
Son of a coach
Nader's bro is a walkon as a LB on the team as well.
I've seen Nader play, he's a beast. About his size though, Rivals has him as 6'2" and Scout as 6'1". I think that's exaggerated but I think he breaks 6'.
I went to high school with him. He's not 5'7". I don't know how tall he is but he's not 5'7". I would've noticed if our starting quarterback was 5'7".
Sorry, 5 7 was an exaggeration. He does not break 6 foot though. Probably close to 5 10. Maybe 5 9. I really do think he is going to make an impact as a wolverine. Most likely he will be the greatest scout team qb UM has ever seen. As any former player or coach knows, that is absolutely HUGE. Especially since we will have to hang with Pryor for a while...
You done talking out of your ass or would you like to keep going?
I'm a coach for an SEC school. I've scouted both those programs while both players were their teams starting quarterbacks.
As a coach for an SEC school, shouldn't you be busy doing coaching stuff? Lane Kiffin was just talking about how he works from 5:30 a.m. until 10:30 p.m.
If you're on Tennessee's staff, you're going to get fired.
If you're on another SEC staff, Kiffin's going to kick your team's ass. And you're going to get fired.
if you followed the thread, the SEC schools he's talking about are the ones in the conference of Sheridan and Furrah (at least i think Furrah's school was in the SEC)
That SEC doesn't count.
it probably tells you about how much of a high school sports nerd I am that I recognized that as the MSHAA's SEC without even thinking of the NCAA one. By the way, this means that guy coaches at one of these schools: Huron, Pioneer, Monroe, Saline, Bedford, Adrian, Chelsea, Dexter, Techumseh, Ypsilanti, or Ypsilanti Lincoln.
He seems to be talking from a third person sort of view, so I think we can eliminate Pioneer and Saline. From my days of Dexter football I can remember having no one that was smart enough to even notice the opposing QB's height, and I doubt they were smart enough to hire someone who did. I'm going to cross off Dexter. I'm going to guess perhaps Chelsea or Milan.
Monroe and Ypsi just joined the league, so you can probably cross those off.
OT but a guy in my hall played football at Milan. No one knew where Milan was so he had to say he came from Ann Arbor...
Milan has had a good football program - most of the time - for over a decade, at least. It's too bad nobody knows where it is.
Right next to the prison and the state Center for Forensic Psychiatry, right?
I coached the Saline Freshmen back in 2004 through 2006. One day during the varsity practice, this guy showed up and took Nick aside while the team was still running through drills. I guess none of the coaches saw until later what exactly was going on. Apparently, he put Nick through a little "workout" and wanted to see him throw, see his dropback, etc. Come to find out, it was Furrha's dad!
He tells Nick at the end of the workout, "my son's transferring to Saline next year and taking your spot." After that, he just left. I guess his dad changed his mind, as Nader stayed at Pioneer...
We all thought it was hilarious...
Dude liked the concept of helicopter parent and took it to the
has saline ever produced any real football talent?
Chris Baker, TE, 4yr start for MSU, plays for the Jets now.
Other than that, not really.
Helmuth, a lot of people will be surprised with how well he is coming a long this fall...
Well, Boisture is playing there this fall.
a Goodrich prospect in my view.
There isn't exactly a lot of D-1 talent in the area in general.
Anyway, a list of UM recruits from Ann Arbor and Saline during the past several years:
Vince Helmuth-FB (Saline, 3-star, 2007 recruit)
Carl Tabb-WR (Ann Arbor-Huron, 4-star, 2002 recruit)
To answer your question, I think Sheridan would be the winner of playing time this year. However, from what I've seen, Furrha will be a better QB in a couple years than Sheridan is...not that we'll have a chance to see him, since he'll be behind Forcier/Robinson/2010 QB's/etc.
