national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Several clocks had him at 4.17 as well.
That is just insane!
"All I've had today is, like, six gummy bears and some scotch"
Whatcha gonna do, little brother?
Fastest college QB ever?
Fastest qb time was a 4.35 by Reggie Mcneal
5 4 3 2 1 Touchdown!
Touchdown Billy Taylor!
Let's make cancer feel foolish!
Hell yeah Denard! I never doubted him.
"There will be blood on the field and it won't be mine." -KK
He smoked the other quarterbacks...
Magnus, I thought you said he was gonna disappoint?
Well, there were plenty of clowns around the internet who expected him to win the thing. I'm guessing they're disappointed.
I put up a tough front, but deep down I just want to be held.
True. Magnus knows a lot more about football than I do so I was just having fun!
A 4.43 is not a phenomenal time. It's a very good time, yeah, but he's not the fastest person in the universe and didn't challenge the times of Chris Johnson, Jacoby Ford, etc.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
a 4.34 at the first attempt, good for 3rd overall.
A 4.34 forty unofficial.... Faster than I expected
I am serious.... and dont call me Shirley
Denard runs a 4.34 in the 40!
awesome first run!
I can't believe people are surprised Denard ran that fast and are saying he is more quick than fast...what team were you watching the last four years? Not surprised!
"I make plays baby, I make plays"
I would've been surprised if he ran 4.25 like Austin and Goodwin, but Denard runs a 4.3-4.4 with ease.
The kid was on the Michigan track team, not sure why we act like we've never seen him run before.
I think his 2nd attempt will be fast. I expect him to run closer to 4.3 flat (hand timed).
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
He was a track athlete. These 40 dash runs have a lot to do with running form. Remember when Manningham stood straight up at the start and had a crap time? Poor form.
...confidence is the stain they can't wipe off...
...coming up next.
...kind of a fun little game if you have a stop watch or a cell phone with a stopwatch.
Are these false starts/stumbles a result of different form from track running?
The clock starts on the runner, so you can't really false start. What's happening is when the arm goes up, you have to hold it for "3 counts" before you can run. Denard and others were going and soon as the arm went up and that's why they got stopped.
The stumbles are probably jus nerves and the fact that this is unorthodox in nature. You'll never run like this again in your life. And you'll never just take off trying to run as fast as you can with nothing else in mind. At lot of these guys are just trying too hard to get everything perfect.
He ran a 4.45 for his second attempt.
Second time : 4.45
Denard's second attempt: 4.45
Seemed to be too tight and short stepped midway down the runway rather than extending.
On his second try, in case you haven't heard. Oh yeah, he just ran his second attempt, it was a 4.45 in the 40...I will post as soon as I hear about his second attempt, should be around 4.45, if I had to guess
Denard compared to Jordy Nelson on the back-hip catch.
I'd love to see him in RB drills. I've always felt his role in the NFL will be in a Percy Harvin/Dexter McCluster type role.
KR/PR, slot...but not Welker slot. Bubble screen, quick screen, short crossing route slot and speed RB plays. Then also some Wilcat.
He's a player that I'd try to get the ball 10-15 times a game. Rarely down the field (although I would send him on a "go" route 1-2 times a game to see if he can get behind the defense). Just get the ball in his hands and let him get as many yards as he can.
Get him the ball in the backfield in a variety of ways and he will produce but I just don't see him going downfield and running routes.
Any of you expert football scouts get any more out of that? How'd his hands look? Wish the cameras had stayed on him instead of the ball boy.
He cradle caught all the passes. Probably not a good sign.
Mike Mayock is a douche bag.
