Hopefully Tate and Denard make the most of the their spring reps.
Gardner Not Enrolling Early Per DetNews
This is upsetting news but I am still hoping that Robinson can make it in early. Unless I missed something, it's still possible that he can EE right?
Devin has until Friday to get this all sorted out.
Consensus is unlikely until then. I hope he can get in, that would be huge.
to drink more of Charles Woodson's wine.
A win-win proposition.
**4 PM - Final Word on Devin** Devin Gardner - not what was reported in DetNews?? ...
he misses some spring practices and weight room, he'll be red shirting anyway so it's really not that big of a deal, assuming his committment is still solid, which I assume it is.
So that sucks. I guess a redshirt is a distinct possibly moreso now.
Don't know if I agree with you guys about the redshirt. At this juncture, Denard, in spite of a lot of athletic ability, has yet to show he can be a consistently accurate QB. His percentage completion in HS was in the low 40's. Assuming Gardner doesn't show up by Friday, things will be no different for him than they were for Denard. The difference is that you now have experience with Tate and, assuming, he stays healthy for a while, should Gardner show the ability to pick things up quickly, by mid-season you might have a good backup on your hands. Unfortunately, and I am being captain obvious here, you won't know the answer until the first week in September.
I'm almost happy now because it means less of a chance of another freshman starter (heads up guys, starting freshmen is bad).
