He's getting a workout beating into the ladies
I know there was a post about single game tickets but no one mentioned the all-in package. When do we get our seat assignments?
Oh, yeah, And it's good that Tate is gaining weight!
when your tickets arrive.
There's something odd about reading "All-In-Package" right after posts talking about getting tail.
Thank goodness Tate enrolled early. It may be a little scary to think about having to start him as a freshman, but can you imagine how much scarier it'd be if he'd just showed up now, weighing 175 and having never practiced with the team?
This is why I am not as worried as I usually would be for a freshman starter. How much more prepared would he be right now if he was a 2008 recruit that enrolled last August? Enrolling early and getting all of the snaps in spring ball seems as, if not more valuable than a typical redshirt year with half the snaps in the spring.
I hate to be cynical or sarcastic society, but please explain the logic in this. I must have a real dearth of knowledge for this to be right, so, if so, I want to correct that. Help me.
I'm saying that enrolling early was as good as an entire typical redshirt year and maybe better because of the extensive spring practice.
My expectations for Tate this year are more of a redshirt freshman than a true freshman.
I fail to see why it is better than a RS '08 season.
I think the logic is that somehow if Tate had come in as a RS in 08 the world would have been changed (Tate does have that power you know) and there would have been no broken leg in the spring and thus he would not have got the reps he did. I think.
Beyond this, I gave up trying to understand. Perhaps you should too.
As an OU fan that quote pisses me off SO MUCH!!! I am so angry that I used caps lock and multiple exclamation points, I'll try to control myslef.
this is great news. i think we all knew, but rarely talked about RR's year 2 turnarounds being linked to the time kids had under barwis' system. i have to imagine the benefit will be even greater for guys like Campbell, Emilien and Jones, guys who will be involved in more contact and chasing people all day.
question - how long has early enrollment been an option? forever? are there cases of a true frosh qb who early enrolled that seemed to play at a higher level because of this?
that he is OMG shirtless.
Get all the way down to the bottom of the thread and you stole my thunder
Why don't you go on his facebook page and write on his wall and ask him to post some pics of him with no shirt on. That wouldn't be creepy would it?
but if i were to comment on your shirtless pics it would be cool.
I was gonna say that.
I have no doubts that there are many Michigan Fans(mostly dudes) waiting anxiously on his facebook page for Tate's inevitable OMG shirtless pic. What will follow is what many scientists predict will be the largest expulsion of semen at once on the globe.
Maybe he can bench 150 now.
I was his RA in WQ and was somewhat curious to see our QB not much bigger than, me a lowly 5'6 at 150 lbs.
Tate was quite the resident athlete to handle haha.
Give this man a pat on the back
Hopefully this won't result in a loss of his legit 4.4 speed ;)
I think someone should send this thread to Tate on facebook. Maybe he'll reconsider accepting everyone's friend request.
I fully expect to see D Rob get some reps with a limited playbook, probably starting with a Wildcat (Wild wolve? Wild Wolf? Werewolf?) series and expanding from there as he learns the entire offense.
But who knows? It's all a crapshoot, anyway.
I cast my vote for werewolf.
and permission to joke guy
I can safely say that being more muscular will hardly make a difference in regards to collisions and impact and the like. I mean, I guess Tate might be able to shrug off a cornerbacks arm tackle or something now, but being more muscular doesn't make your joints any more built. They're still fragile as hell - and perhaps even more so on a heavy workout regiment. The kind of strength these guys make under Barwis might even leave them vulnerable to more injury if guys are taking test boosters in addition to normal diets - the body needs a lot of time to get used to all the new found muscle mass, and football players don't really afford their bodies that opportunity.
So no, having a lot of muscle doesn't really protect your joints. It just makes you look sexy. And Tate sure is purty.
As an avid weight lifter, perhaps you should post a shirtless pic of yourself. This might help your credibility. Just sayin.
Yeah. And pantless too...just to help his credibility. No other reason.
You don't want that. The weight he avidly lifts is his own 300lbs.
I think we can have faith that Barwis knows what he's doing when he asks these guys to lift.
I always thought it was more of a physics thing than a joints thing. F=m(a) Like say I'm a 6' 130lb Roy Roundtree standing flat footed and a 6'2" 210lb Brandon Smith just destroys me. I have a much higher chance of breaking a rib/becoming injured than if I was a 6' 215lb Mike Cox standing flat footed. Obviously I'm talking extremes since Tate only gained 15lbs, but you know what I mean.
That is interesting - how did you obtain it?
Do we have stats on how our linemen's weight have changed since last year?
Do they publish bench press numbers?
I bet Marv Marinovich is at home thinking "NO NOT HEAVY WEIGHTS MY WORK IS RUINED"
