I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

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?

Although It's going to be weird without Denard on the field, Devin brings the same type of excitement to the game. I understand Borges wants a statue with a laser for an arm behind center but IMO duel threat is the way to go. I wonder if they will recruite more "Devin" type guys in the future.
Cade McKnown and Jason Campbell could scramble well.
"I'm not a vegetarian b/c I love animals. I'm a vegetarian b/c I hate plants"
and Shane is resonably mobile. that Kid out of Cass Tech could be a fun guy after Shane, another Tall mobile guy like Devin.
Seriously, he runs a 4.64 40 according to Rivals(not sure how many fakes that received). That's pretty fast...
I don't think Jayru Campbell has quite the arm that Devin does, however.
Not sure if serious... he's literally 15 right now, of course he wouldn't be as strong.
COYS and lets go Detroit FC!
Of course you wouldn't expect them to be equal, but I mean projection wise. I think people over estimate his potential as a passer.
I wouldn't call Shane Morris a statue. I'm not sure where you picked up that Borges wanted a Navarre back there.
"They will meet a dastardly fate here for that! There isn't a Michigan Man who wouldn't like go out and scalp those Buckeyes right now."
That's a common misconception, that Borges or other non-spread OC's want a statuesque quarterback. I'm pretty sure that every coach in the country would prefer a more mobile quarterback if everything else were equal (passing ability, decision making, etc). It's just really hard to find solid quarterbacks who can run (there aren't many RGIII's out there), and more often than not the duel threat quarterbacks are more running backs who can throw than quarterbacks who can run.
Borges wants a quarterback who can throw, but the more mobile the better...
Weren't Steve young, Jeff Garcia, Donovan mcnabb, and Brett favre all some what mobile prototypical west coast qbs?
Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica
Logged in to deduct points from this dumbass point of view. Borges just wants a QB that can throw consistent accurate passes. He now has it.
Not sure where you got the statue idea, but it's just not true. Bellomy and Morris were both recruited in part because of their mobility. Expect Borges and Hoke to continue to recruit guys with good arms, but also good mobility. This is not the Lloyd Carr QB.
The West Coast QB's success is largely determined by his footwork. You don't necessarily need to be fast to have good footwork, but it helps to be athletic. Also, the WCO uses lots of play action and bootlegs--mobility helps with these as well.
Thank you, Coach Hoke, for bringing Michigan back.
Incredible protection all day by the offensive line to give Gardner plenty of time to throw.
And although the coaches probably don't like him running very much, I like that Gardner has some mobility. Not Denard's of course, but more than your typical UM quarterbacks like Griese, Henne, Grbac, Brady and Navarre.
Go Blue! Always!
At 4:04 Elliot Mealer gets put on his ass and gets lucky not being called for Holding. He needs to play better next week, gets a little inconsitent as the game goes on.
On the TD pass to Roundtree, he almost let Gardner get lampooned by a DT
Michigan's receivers never get enough credit for how good they are in one on one battles.
I love Gardner in goal line situations. The roll out, the little stutter to throw off the linebacker, and the stroll into the end zone was my favorite play. I'm loving his play more and more every time I see him out there.
Avatar is a reference to this. Go Blue!
Assuming Devin makes use of the off-season as the #1 QB and takes his game up a level before next season, we are going to be very hard to beat. We'll have a young, inexperienced O-line and a new left tackle (Lewan will almost certainly go pro), but the talent level will be up a notch at almost every position:
We'll learn an awful lot about DG this week. Can he continue to shine on the road in The Game?
