This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

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?
5 4 3 2 1 Touchdown!
Touchdown Billy Taylor!
Well shit....I'm off the wagon, clearly dilfer was right.
Overhyped before doing anything.... Pause not... He is a good QB, but many are, and always need to take a big leap to be good in college.
[Caved troll is caved. Sorry, Mobile app users.]
A lot commits in action tonight.
From Matt Durr doing a chat on mlive...the DLS oline is still a problem that Morris has to deal with that was a problem last year.
He appears to be rusty. His team does have a 7-0 lead.

Its tougher when you actually have guys rushing at you instead of a timer like they do in 7 on 7's. Might take a bit to get back to game speed.
You know, Dude, I myself dabbled in pacifism once. Not in 'Nam of course.
I'm gonna jump the gun here and be the guy that goes too far. Couldn't we say the same thing about Henne's career? He had a great arm, but the accuracy just wasn't there at crucial points.
Yeah, I'm going to throw a flag for excessive premature complaining on this post. The kid is struggling a tiny bit in his game of the season. Let's not start questionning his accuracy given the fact he has shown great accuracy for most of his career.
Josh Newkirk @JoshNewkirk7
Michigan commit Ben Gedeon scores on a two yard full back dive. 14-7 Hudson with 9:16 left in the 2nd.
Tom VanHaaren @TomVH
RT @mikekluch @TomVH Hudson up 7-0 Gedeon biggest player on field looks part of a top lb. Great closing speed on qb rollout forced throwaway
Hopefully he is not one of a group of Avon football players that were suspended for breaking team rules
PD's Kristen Davis @CleveHSsports
Avon D1 recruits ross douglas (michigan) and ralph smith (ball st) are not playing vs avon lake. no reason has been given.
Nicholas A. Kovach @TheKovach
Danny Coughlin reports from #AVONLAKE that #AVON Star DB Ross Douglas NOT on field for warm ups. No word if he's one of 10 players suspended
to Wangler. 21-0 De La Salle.
I don't care what the deal with your OL is.. 5 stars are supposed to be surefire kids who dominate games... Not saying Shane blows, but the later rocket arm at camps just doesn't do as much for me as playing real football...wish te ranking services didn't blow these camps out of the water like they are the super bowl
I don't know how anyone can come to any conclusion yet on his play.
So you make big.
Plus, it's apparently 21-0. So... yeah.
They no longer call me Bisbiño
You're an idiot, that's all.
“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing” - Bo Schembechler
But a game that depends on 10 other people to do their jobs is the best indicator? The point of camps is that everyone is on an equal playing field. But I'm sure depending on a bunch of other people who will never sniff a college field is the true test.
Michael Felder @InTheBleachers
Channing Stribling gets an INT for Butler. #clthsfb
is a good combo. I really hope jack wangler takes a walk-on spot here next year.
I didn't say Morris blows, I think he's a great prospect, but I think expectations based on 7v7 and camps are just unreal...
The expectation started his sophomore year before any 7 on 7 when a 16 year old could throw 80 yards in the air.
Is he a 5 star again?
unreal. Michigan's coaching staff will be happy to learn that the incoming class needs coaching and practice. Their jobs are secure for another year!
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
Well, considering he was good enough for everyone in the world to rate him one of the best QBs in the class, it is pretty premature to claim he's overrated because he did even better at 7 v 7 drills.
Morris playaction pass to the flat for 7 yard TD. Now 7/14 with 2 TDs. Approaching 100 yards passing. DLS up 28-0, 1:44 left in 2nd
"I think Hoke has changed the tide on the rivalry. Hell people in Ohio are starting to believe him. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Selling Michigan jerseys is a good start."
He started 2-9, has gone 5 of 5 with 2 TDs since. Nice to seem him start to play to the level we all know he can. Maybe some early nerves got to him? Regardless he's on track for 200+ yards and 4 TDs. That's a solid day no matter what, and if he plays like he has after the 2 for 9 start he can do even better.
Practice makes perfect. Unless you're the Buckeyes. Then you have to cheat.
Sam Webb @SamWebb77
Morris quickly goes 3/3 and has DLS at pioneer 25
Ace Anbender @AceAnbender
DLS drive stalls after Morris was sacked for a big loss. 3/6 for 34 yards on the drive. Had one great throw on an out but also missed 2.
Unnoficial Morris HT stats:
Stephen J. Nesbitt @stephenjnesbitt
Halftime: Shane Morris is 10-for-20, 115 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT and DLS leads 28-0 -- he is 8-for-13 with 103 yards and 2 TD after dismal start.
Shane Morris now 14-for-25 for 178 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT midway through the third quarter.
Heiko Yang @Heiko25
When Shane Morris is on he is freaking on. After a slow start hes been tearing up Pioneer, which has been playing a nickel the entire time
After Morris led a surgical drive down the field, De La Salle’s RB punched it in from a yard out to make it 35-0. 4/5 for around 65 yards.
Gedeon fumbles hand off on third and goal from the two. Still 14-7 Hudson late in the third.
Our linebackers struggle with ball security. So... panic?
you're really f**kin' on
"Ohio is like a giant turd that Michigan just can't pinch off"
Was this game expected to be this lopsided? I thought Pioneer would be more competitive.
the 100 yd TD return when Pioneer was driving to tie it at 7 completely changed the game. Shane got hot and the rest is history.
New Prospect on the Radar?
Jamie Newberg @JamieNewberg
Demar Dorseys lil brother, Eddie Jackson just scored on 82 yd td pass. Fly route. Blew by and ran away from Plant D. Kid can flat out run.
The beginnings of a YES FLY ZONE?!
@pnbloem | Ultra-MGoBoard
Everyone needs to leave the game to make it home in time for the BTN Michigan preview. Why can't it be football season all year round?
Looks like the end of the night for Shane Morris with DLS up 35-0. He finishes 14-25 for 178 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT.
End of Morris's day. Not a great stat line, but after his shaky start, he seemed to impress the rest of the way.
Next week will get very interesting for Shane Morris. De La Salle travels to Ohio to take on powerhouse Cleveland St. Ignatius. Maybe his toughest game of the year.
From Stephen Nesbitt of Michigan Daily:
Man, the Morris hate in this thread is hilarious. Kid hasn't even stepped foot on campus yet and people are calling him overrated and saying he can't make the throws when it matters. It truly is a "what have you done for me lately" world.
Disgusting isn't it?
You act like everyone is ragging on Shane, only one poster criticized him.
I didn't make it out to be an encompassing statement from the board. I said "the morris hate in this thread is hilarious" - that could refer to any amount of hate. It was two posters that were trying to take definitive analysis from >one half of his first game of the year. I thought it was funny and my post was just an observation on their "evaluations"
With 2 flat out dogging him.
"I love him, he's a great coach, he's a great mentor, he's a great friend. He's every single thing you want a college coach to be, and he does it flawlessly." -David Molk
from what I saw he looked like a dominant HS quarterback. Very poised in the pocket, fluid throwing motion, his passes were on target and there were some nice passes he really threaded in there. Wangler is a pretty solid receiver and made some nice catches. Closing out the first half they tried to hook up from the 39 yard line on a perfect pass to the back corner of the endzone which was broken up on a great HS play by the defender. Perfect attack on the ball to break it up.
For his first game after being away from home a better part of his summer, I'd say he lived up to expectation. Looked like he could move the ball anywhere he wanted. As a HIGH SCHOOL KID who has one heck of a cheese smile on his ID, he did a nice job tonight. Thought he played way above some kid named Roethelsberger who I saw play at Findlay at that same age. And then watching Ben warm up, you could see the motion in his throw and how he carried himself. His stats were nothing flashy, his coach was very run oriented and completely nepetisitic..so...yeah.
Kudos to Morris, I'm excited with his potential. The kid looked great to me. Saw him slide up in the pocket under pressure a few times and really hit his receivers with authority. Granted there were a few times he looked out of sorts and chucked the ball where he could have gotten in trouble but he was everything I expected.
what asswagon scored my post detailing the game as 'off topic' fucking really? there sure is a collection of arrogant fuckin pricks here that, for whatever reason if a poster doesn't follow the 'herd' or norm, the post is unacceptable. I really do understand why a lot of folks see UM fans as arrogant assholes if these are the people they base it on...cripes, it was a personal perspective on how the kid played, I THOUGHT he looked good. I coached enough HIGH SCHOOL football, I have a reasonable perspective on the issue...whatever. vent over. assholes.
Ty Issac is on ESPNU. Wow u talk about playing against bad defenses, had 50 yard touchdown un touched but got hurt so is out the rest of the game with a knee injury, going to the hospital for X-ray. I don't think he's meant for the i-formation. He runs too high. There down 30-20 at the half, upset brewing!!!! 9 carries 67 yards but 50 on 1.
Guns are for cowards. Real men fight with their fists or the honor of a sword.
What were Shane's final stats?
14-25 for 178 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT
Started 2-9 for about 11 yards and a pick, didn't play most of the 4th it sounds like.
I attended the 1st half of the game. Morris played poorly in the 1st quarter, but played well the rest of the half. Pioneers secondary covered pretty well, and his receivers didn't get much seperation, so the meh stat line is to be expected.
His accuracy was pretty good -- the int was of the "I didn't see that guy there" variety. Most of his mistakes were bad decisions -- holding on to the ball for too long, throwing it to guys that were covered.
I wouldn't say he's a slam dunk to start at Michigan, but he has the tools. Great arm, showed some nice touch, decent mobility. Just needs to improve his decision making.
Anyway, that's my scouting report based on one half of football.
