Does anybody know how Tate is doing as far as lifting and 7 on 7s?
Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
TOM have you heard anything on Tate. Also, any new tidbits on D. Robinson, and A. Witty? PLEASE I NEED INPUT!!!!!!
Dude, do you realize you just repeated exactly what this guy said, just saying TOM first? And there were updates on those guys TODAY. Chill man.
Thanks for that observation. You must be a closet Domer or a sweater vest user. Remember both domers, and tosu house philosophers and boy lovers. Which are you?
I guess you caught me. Im a troll that has been in hiding for months, waiting for my moment to strike!!!!! And I chose to mock your over panicked post because it was borderline brain dead.
Think about it man, you ask the same thing the 1st guy did, but said TOM and then asked for updates on two guys who were extensively covered in the roundup by Brian today.
You were clearly embarassed by this revelation, so you decided to retaliate to save face for your screen name. You couldn't think of a quick rebuttal, but then you remembered that its cool to make fun of Notre Dame and OSU, so you figured you would try to look like one of the cool kids by trying that. Problem there is that there was no foundation, as I said nothing bad about Michigan at all.
The final problem is that you try to put down philosophy and homosexuality. Firstly, philosophy is a very well respected academic field, which forms a basis for many other academic fields. I assume there is a philosophy major that would argue this point further, but all logic and most higher thought is derived from philosophy. And in regards to your clear homophobic nature, I think you need to become more cultured. I myself am not gay, but Being gay is not a bad thing. Hating all gay men is just as bad as hating all black men. Just because it is more socially acceptable does not make it ok.
Please take a step back and come back when you are going to behave in a more mature manner.
Old Greek men with beards, pondering things. What do they know, with their beards and their pondering and their togas. Bunch of beards, I say. Beards!
I'm not sure what you want me to tell you about Tate. He's doing well, and he's found girls already.
Denard and Adrian have pretty much shut things down as far as talking to people. If I'm guessing, they're blue.
Is that part of Barwis' program? If so, I hope he teaches them the proper way to do the "shocker."
just spit up a triscuit
Lets just pray Tulsa does not come knocking.
Wow, are people to going to obsess about everything on Tate? Jesus Christ, as if we didn't spend enough time stalking them while they were recruits, now we're going to track their every move in college? Just let the kid enjoy his college years.
...that all anyone wants to hear is that:
(1) Tate can properly throw a bubble screen and a ten yard crossing route; and
(2) Tate can read the outside linebacker and defensive end on the spread read option.
Once 1 person says he can do this, we'll all fall asleep without Threet-ian nightmares.
Then I'd suggest that everyone wait until the spring game and then we'll get a good look at where we stand in regards to QB play. We won't learn anything from 7 on 7 drills and off-season conditioning.
is that Threet starts for most of the season this year. I don't get why people dislike him so much. He wasn't bad at all when healthy.
You may be right, but to say he wasn't bad at all when healthy is bologna.
we will agree to disagree. He was our #1 option and it took him a year to figure out the system. I would fully expect Tate to have similar struggles learning the system as well. Threet was not "bad" he was just not perfect. Those are two different things. Plus he was injured for most of the year so you can't really judge how "bad" he was. I hope for the best with Tate, I just don't know how smooth his first year in the system will go unless he has a year to learn it first.
Threet's accuracy was pretty crappy even before he got hurt. However, he did show good judgment on his reads before he got hurt (I think his injury affected his reads because he was hesitant to run). Ideally, Forcier will pick up the reads quickly and seize the job because he's almost certainly a more accurate thrower (Rivals had him as the most accurate in this class) and he's a better runner, but it's not the end of the world if a healthy Threet plays also. You figure his accuracy will probably be somewhat better this season, and I do think he knows the reads.
Denard Robinson if he comes. He will have a lot of ground to make up(learning the playbook, reads, defenses, etc) but his athleticism is off the charts.
My practice reports show two things:
(1) Tate can properly throw a bubble screen and a ten yard crossing route; and
(2) Tate can read the outside linebacker and defensive end on the spread read option
Does this settle the fears?
7 on 7 doesn't usually begin until Spring Ball. If they are running 7 on 7 drills, coaches are not permitted to be attendance at any workouts where a ball is present. Just a little FYI...
I heard he threw a football through a brick wall.
I heard that when Tate does push-ups, he pushes the earth down.
HT: Chuck Norris.
Tates found girls haha. Hes a QB from CALIFORNIA, go figure. He's gonna be ladies man.
I hear Donovon warren is a big player too hahaha.(Cali man)
But, why do people try and be the hard asses on these boards telling to people to stop whatever? People are new to these boards every day. Some people dont follow recruiting, just players ON THE TEAM. Which is different.
So all you negative people stfu.
I heard people say they already seeing Tate throw the ball around alot lately. Cant wait til spring ball news on him.
tates last game
For us who obsessively track Tate Forcier and all his movements, and also are on thsi website for 8 hours after school and spend the other 3 hours taking a nap, care alot about Forcier's progress
Talking about Forcier's love life sort of completely weirds me out.
UPDATE: Just wanted to let you all know that Tate's alarm clock worked this morning.
Scout mods are claiming he hit Sleep twice. Does this mean he is too soft because conditioning is wearing him out? I'm worried he's not ready for the next level?
I don't have a Rivals account, cany anyone tell me the gist of the header re: Threet's REM sleep last night? He's only been getting a few hours the past couple nights. Thanks.
Look, these kids are just kids. Let them be kids. They're in college! If they want to hit the snooze button twice, that's something RR will have to handle internally. From what my reports tell me, Tate couldn't have hit snooze because it was actually a girl's cell phone alarm that woke him up.
I'm not really too concerned, because the bottom line is- the competition will bring the best out of both of them. Threet was a double snooze button type, and then he lost the first snap to Sheridan. I don't think he'll make the same mistake twice.
Well played, sir.
And seriously, how the hell does Tom even know whether Tate is meeting girls? Are we sure he wasn't joking?
+1 on the name. My first ever Michigan game was the Washington Game where Brabbs rebounded to kick the game winner. What an awesome game to kickoff my Michigan experience! I found out about a year or so ago that Philip Brabbs actually worked with some of the same people I did at the same company but on another project (unless they were yanking my chain.) Small world!
Does anyone know which of his balls hangs lower, the left or right?
Just watched a pretty coed
Anybody know what jersey no. Falk is giving the kid?
West Quad? Can we get a report? Is he eating properly? Enough roughage in the diet?
took a dump today
That Tate is meeting Girls.
All you people makin fun of the guy asking about Tate... I don't want to see any one of you mention a player on the game again.
"Whats wrong with b.minors injury?"
"hows roy roundatree?"
"Brandon grahams bench is what?"
Not too mention getting so involved with the recruits. When are they visiting? Whos there top 5? What did they do on there visit? Do they like there visit? Did they get along with the players? Did they bang any hoes? Did he see barwis' conditioning?
Honestly? I was making fun of your interest in Forcier's dating life, and gleefully stating that he's "going to be a lady's man." That's creepy to me. Creepy as hell.
why don't you sit this one out for awhile, mmmkay?
These are the posts I love the most.
that they have hot freshman chicks enroll early as well, so that the football players who enroll early can sleep w/ them?
Can anyone tell me the way Tate wipes his ass? Does he wad the toilet paper up, or does he neatly fold it? Back to front or front to back?
Do guys really go back to front?
My Japanese talking toilet cleans my ass for me at the touch of a button. The new version will be voice activated.
Those toilets are awesome. Heated seats with the dingle-washer spray.
Cuz that's fucked up if so. Bacon bits in the taco and all that.
chris16w on January 27th, 2009 at 9:16 PM had this to say:
I just wasted 30 seconds of my life in this post trying to find something of value. The first joke was funny but then like 900 people think they are being original with all the "TEE HEE! WHAT ABOUT TATE'S FAVORITE COLOR! TEE HEE..." The original post was about lifting and 7 on 7s...
haha this is like THE typical mgoblog thread...
1. make post
2. "you're a troll bla bla bla"
3. sarcasm and mockery follows...
4. reaction to previous step
5. "dude chill out"
6. "no, dude you chill out"
7. bla bla more sarcasm bla bla
interesting too read nonetheless
too bad bball just lost
In reference to a comment about Threet that people "dislike him so much," I don't dislike Threet because I don't know him. But I do know that his performance last year bore no resemblence to a major college QB for more than a play or two at a time.
If Threet had simply been able to hit open recievers, UM would have gone 6-6 at the worst, and probably 8-4. It wouldn't have been enough to be a great team, but it would have saved the UM coaching staff and fanbase from a boatload of shit this year.
Threet couldn't hit open recievers and UM sucked last year. That is hardly a sterling resume going into this season.
Threet seems like a nice kid. I wish him a great life. Hopefully, he can have a nice football "career" quarterbacking at Adrian College.
But I truly hope to never, ever see him take another snap at UM unless he has taken a quantum leap in the offseason.
The problem is that accuracy usually is either instinctive or it isn't there. QB's can improve tons of things: release time, footwork, velocity, reading defenses; but they usually don't improve accuracy too much. Accuracy seems to be something a kid is either born with or not born with. It comes from the right side of the cerebrum. Usually, this is the hardest side of the brain to develop.
At any rate, I hope they get Robinson and he turns out to be a servicable QB for depth and an occasional change-of-pace series this year, and that Forcier stays healthy and has a good first year. Jeremy Gallon could do great with a wildcat series, too.
You hate to rely on freshmen at QB, but UM has done just that before and had it work out fine.
