Does anyone have any word on Drake from the postgame stuff. I haven't heard anything but I thought it looked pretty serious.
Photos from Michigan vs. CMU
It was great to be back on the sidelines yesterday! Here are some photos from the game.
Cam Gordon (Upchurch)
Jarrod Wilson (Fuller)
Devin Funchess (Upchurch)
Devin Gardner (Fuller)
Here are links to our individual galleries if you'd like to see all of the photos.
He was at least in good enough spirits to accept a piggy-back ride to the student section, so there's that.
He has a sprained knee
So we have Lloyd Brady and Rapture Guy. I think we need to grace the guy Lloyd Brady is with in that photo with an MGoName. He's always in the front row, great tv camera / jumbo tron presence and it seems like hes going on his 5th - 6th year in the spotlight.
Did anyone else think Wilson played just fine yesterday? He wasn't amazing, maybe a couple mistakes, but I thought he was definitely solid back there.
At times Wilson seemed to make an impact. He would of had a pretty amazing pick had countess or stinking not knocked into him. Had a couple of good hits/ run support plays too.
I think Wilson did fine. Safety takes time and he showed an imposing style of play that I feel works well with this defense. Reminds me of Jamar Adams. He made aggressive plays against both the run and the pass. I feel like the overall disposition of the secondary is great. If we can get constant pressure from our front four, this group could make some noise this year for real.
When a DB makes a mistake everyone in the peanut gallery notices. When a LB makes an error or a lineman makes an error there is 1-2 more layers of defense to cover it up and you say "oh darn a 11 yard gain, horrible outside contain!!, damnit LB or D-lineman" rather than "oh darn a TD or 40 yard gain, damnit you DB who can't cover anyone and should not have a scholarship". The DBs are in a no win situation as every mistake is obvious to the casual fan. He did fine, the competition sucked, lets move on to a real team and assess. Personally I thought Countess had the rougher game as they seemed to target him early in the game when they had their "horses" in. Every team is going to have some weaknesses, if the worst for us is right defensive end and one safety, live with it and move on - the sum of this defense will always be greater than the individual parts due to our coaches... we can see that the past 2 years with Coach Swag.
Thought he looked decent in run support a few times, which is a good sign since he was supposedly not very physical. Hard to know with the pass defense since he was out there with Furman. If he had Gordon next to him, he might have gotten some instruction on the field from someone with experience similar to Kovacs last year getting everyone set.

I really like the photo of Taylor Lewan (probably) pre-game looking off into the distance. That's featured in the post above.
Also really like the shot of the offensive line and Gardner (here).
Very nice photos!
Great shot of the Hoke point.
Lots of great pictures. Thanks. I'd be interested to hear details on your camera gear if you'd be willing to share.
I'm not sure what Fuller uses, but my primary camera body is a Canon 7D and my favorite lens is the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM. I have other gear, but that's what I like to use the most.
readily available on flickr for each image. e.g., this one (taken with a Nikon D7100 body and AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens; focal lenght at 155mm, exposure 1/1000s at f2.8, etc.)
lots of information gets shared with pictures online -- just ask John McAfee.
Bryan's portrait of Fred Jackson in the album is quite dashing. He looks like Denzel Washington but sexier.
"like Denzel...but faster, taller, stronger, and more handsome-er."
Can we please talk a bit about the Freshman RB tandem? I mean, Green looked like a buick when he hit the second level on his 30 yard run!
