Countdown to Kickoff - Day 26
Has anyone ever seen Marvin Robinson smile? Kid is all business and looks like he is going into his 5th year as well. If memory serves, Troy said some good things about his "natural ability" at safety during 7 on 7's. Me thinks Marvin will be the biggest freshman contributor this side of Hagerup.
I'll be honest, I shat myself when he turned from the photographer to the MGoBlue camera, that man has one thing on his mind: destroying offenses.
I heard he's sharing a bathroom with Will Campbell. You wouldn't smile much, either.
a little healthy competition to generate sportsmanship and a sense of team.
M-Rob in the Royal Guard?
Awesome. I didn't know they stay at a hotel for fall camp....Looks like a very immersive experience, like bootcamp really.... good stuff as I'm sure that builds team unity and really gets everyone on the same page with the values and vision the coaching staff have for the program.
Am also impressed by how top-notch everything looks....the food they eat, the facilities....
Hope recruits watch these things.
I think most colleges do this. I know when I read the Bruce Feldman book on Ole Miss football, the Friday night before every home game they would leave campus and stay in a hotel about thirty minutes away to keep away from distractions. Colleges can, and do, spend money to keep these guys focused on the task at hand, I personally think it's a great idea.
Yeah, if I was a coach I wouldn't want my kids going out to parties and stuff the night before a game. Putting them up in a hotel is a great way to make sure they're as prepared as possible.
As long as I can remember, the team always stays at the Campus Inn on Huron the Friday night before home games, but for all of camp, thats news to me
PS: I'm in Royal Oak and can already smell the sweat and moldy pads...it must be that time of year
I'm amazed that anyone can be that lean at 303 pounds. It's been discussed here multiple times, RichRod wants more agile linemen, not necessarily smaller ones. When I saw him lifting, that was amazing. Look at him and tell me you think he's 303 pounds
I was struck by how much even more "in shape" Schilling this year. Not that he was ever a big ol' fatty but damn...
Holy shit M Rob...
a ton like Stevie Brown.
M Rob is put together for a 17-18 year old kid, also Kenny Demens must have 22'' arms, dude is jacked.
And he reads Pat Conroy.
Wow, yes, those are some pipes. 22" might be an underestimate.
really help me get throught the remaining 30 days before the start of the season. I am really interested in seeing which of the frosh who didn't enroll early will flash. M Robinson should beat out Kovacs for a starting spot IMHO... Go Blue!!! I can't wait to sit in the BIg House (that's 30% louder) for the start of a new year...
M Robinson would be challenging Cam Gordon for the free safety position. Am I wrong?
The coaches want to see him at all three safety positions, I assume he's just going to stick to wherever he performs the best. Either way, I'd like to see at least one of them move to the other safety spots, those are two of the most gifted safeties we have on the roster, the selfish part in me that doesn't care about depth wants to see them both on the field at the same time.
They will redshirt him in order to grow his clones. Gerg is employing the little-used "Stormtrooper" defense.
This is something I overlooked; I guess I thought most of the players would follow recruiting pretty closely, and have a pretty good idea of who was coming in. Maybe that's a little bit position or O/D specific.
Having had one class with a football player (walk-on), the one thing that really struck me is how separated the offense and defense seemed to be. He knew guys on both sides of the ball, but didn't really know much about how the offense was developing and who the key recruits were at all.
Anyone else spot Lewan wearing a Fedora LOL, rumor has it RichRod wants athletic, mean and stylish lineman
It's just that Lewan spends the off season hunting relics and scoring with hot women.
is in the halo? I wasn't aware of any of our players with severe neck injuries.
Bills??? I noticed that also
Believe you're correct.
it has to be Jon Bills. All things considered, it's damn good to see him up and about.
I have reached the following conclusions:
1. We will destroy all comers.
2. I love Kool-Aid
3. My skin feels funny and I need to jump out of it.
I miss Karsch's sweet sweet voice
Schilling looks like a heavier ryan reynolds
very at ease on camera as well. Well spoken and relaxed. Just a great looking kid.
Oh...and i want one of those shirts he was wearing...with the helmet and the "offense" above it. Very cool.
M-Rob, that kid looks official. Ready to stomp on someones ass once the season starts, i wanna see him light someone up
official photos with a nice tie, jacket and gym shorts.
