I know everyone isn't a big Twitter fan, including myself, but I am hooked today with the BTN and updates from practice.
If you get a chance follow:
Some notable "tweets" so far:
Best hit of the day so far -- from Troy Woolfolk (Butch's kid). Lots of "oohs" and "ahhs" from everyone watching the drill
Again -- intersting to see difference in philosophy. I've seen more WR's working on blocking in 1st 20 mins than last 2 days combined (at OSU and PSU)
Amazing how much smaller Michgan's skill guys are than OSU and PSU. Not a positive or a negative -- just a different philosophy.
Initial impression -- Forcier has a nice arm. Looks good. Throws well on run. Robinson a tad more inconsistent, but still fine for scheme.
Vincent Smith looks really good -- tremendous move in an open-field tackling drill. Just 5'6", but tough to catch
Lot of talking and teaching going on with OL group. Pretty obvious from watching Patrick Omameh for 10 minutes that he'll be able to help
It's amazing how poised and confident Forcier looks. As Howard said to me, "he has 'it'". Just has an impressive air about him
More on Denard: He has better touch and a tighter spiral than I predicted on the long ball. Just threw a nice deep pass (INC).
Lot of emphasis on one on one tackling -- which was a liability for this team last year. Hard to tell from practice, but looks better
Will Campbell looking good -- nice play to bat down a Sheridan pass. Sheridan running exclusively with the 2's, FWIW
Tate Forcier is the PERFECT QB for the Michigan system. Good arm,very comfortable throwing on the run and good speed and scrambling ability
