Can we please stop with the Freshmen hype?? I like recruiting, I love projecting forward, but the "he's going to start next year" has got to stop. I just saw on the Drake-Dileo thread Drake was going to contribute next year. Really?? Like J. Stokes was going to and V. Smith and W. Campbell. Charles Woodson blew as a Freshmen. Yes that Charles Woodson. He was picked on like Cissoko and Trent. The greatest db in Mich history blew as a Freshmen. There are 70-80 snaps per side per game. Everyone can't play. We were the most talent depleted Michigan team in 40 years and the Frosh's to make an impact in the last 2 years have been.
Tate/Denard- No one on roster..duh??
Koger-Butler went nuts.
Odoms-No one on roster Duh??
Roh-Certainly awesome but upperclassmen horribly disappointing
So now those 40-45guys we brought in have had at leaast a year in the system and a year of training plus the upperclassmen. Chances of Freshmen making any impact from here on out is going to be rare. Maybe you see a Frosh see some time in the secondary next year, but that's about it. The depth is starting to fill out. Redshirts at all-time high next year.*
