And here's the clue: This lineman was sometimes referred to by his teammates as Fat Elvis.
Former U-M players laud coach Brady Hoke's 'tough' approach
Does it really matter that we'll have the QB under center and play with a fullback?
WHY DOES THIS MATTER TO PEOPLE. I dont care if we play with 10 OL and Denard if we win...
Eaxacty. There are teams in college AND the NFL that are having success playing out of the shotgun. And I certainly don't remember a fullback post Askew being an integral part of the offense except in maybe blocking situations.
You don't remember Kevin Dudley?
He was proclaimed (I don't think there was any voting?) the first string FB of the aughts by mgoblog.
Dude did a lot of blocking.
""You know you might be hurt, you might be bruised up, you might have some injuries, but you want to practice, you want to play," Long said. "That's what makes you a great football player. That's what coach (Carr) instilled in us, and that's what coach Hoke is going to instill in them."
Listen, I'm still mad RR is gone. I loved having the Florida athlete on our team instead of watching him in the bowl game...playing against us. But I feel one thing Hoke can do (other than get Mattison on board whose recruiting MI and OH like a monster) is instill a similar atmosphere that Carr had.
