Football Display Case
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
"Jeff Withey shouldn't have called him Peter Dinklage, is all I'm saying."
I don't think they'll redshirt Morris with no serviceable back up.
"Are you an official here?Because you've officially given me a boner."
Bellomy beat out Gardner in spring practice, or was at least good enough that they felt comfortable with moving Gardner to receiver. I still think there were some injury issues with Bellomy and the change in playcalling from Devin to Bellomy won't be so massive as from Denard to Bellomy either. I suspect Bellomy will be the backup next year unless Morris is so good that he forces his way on the field as the starter.
Terrifies me. The kid pooped his pants versus Nebraska. Shane will red shirt as long as Gardner isn't injured. If he is, it with be Morris.
Yeah - the kid wasn't ready for primetime, on the road, against one of our toughest opponents, in a game he wasn't expecting to play. Maybe it's possible Shane would be the same way as a true frosh?
Keep in mind that Bellomy has the experience under his belt now. That, coupled with a ton of reps in spring practice might make him a quality back up.
Just think about how Brendan Gibbons has progressed since his freshman year. I understand QB is different than kicker, but I really think that Bellomy's problem is more mental than anything else.
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
I think Bellomy will be better than his Nebraska game, and barring a horrible injury, we could probably go the whole year with Gardner/Bellomy. It's risky, but the same risk we have with our O-Line
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
Come on now..It's Michigan we are talking about. They have repeadly been denied in the past yet other schools get them everytime. The Suckeyes got 2 years for a kicker on some trumped up medical reason but the only reason was he couldn't beat out the two guys in front of him until his 6th year.
If you don't like Michigan you are a peasant
honestly every time you post I think it's one of mine
time to say farewell to pensive Sheridan methinks

Still doesn't mean that you still don't suck!
Agreed. I'm still not ready for cordial buckeye interaction.
Congrats on the win. But . . . too soon. Way too soon.
Good, this means endless threads asking if we've heard back or not. But if it is yes, then this is certainly great news.
At all about Gardner getting a redshirt?
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
I think I heard that UM can't apply until after next year. Don't know if that's true.
LOL "Back Spasms" FTW
While I'm thrilled that Shane Morris is coming to Michigan, I think that there is great value in having an experienced Senior Quarterback. Assuming Devin would start the next two years, this means Shane would redshirt and not play at all next year, and for Shane to be a backup his redshirt Freshman year (Fall 2014.) He wouldn't have to start until Fall 2015, or after 3 full Fall practices, as well as 2 full Spring practices.
"It does not matter how many times you get knocked down, but how many times you get up." Vince Lombardi
would be the thing to do. But, in reality we'll have to see how things play out in the spring practices and next fall with Bellomy and Morris to see who the best backup would be. I think Bellomy will bounce back well from the Nebraska debacle, but how far we'll need to see.
"You owe it to every man, woman, and child in the State of Michigan to beat the Buckeyes and silence their fans! Now go out there and make it happen!"

So we get Shane into the summer scrimmages, and give him a lot of reps in the fall camp, and after a few games and he gets into the swing of school as a freshman, we make Shane the starting quarterback and -- I love this part -- we move Devin Gardner to WR! How cool would that be? We'd be getting all of our best athletes on the field all at once.
But we play Morris on a couple of meaningless snaps early in the season, then when we need him next, put Bellomy in, and then have to make up an injury and wait to see if they give Morris his redshirt back. You'd probably like that.

As others have stated, one can be second on the depth chart for an entire season and still keep their redshirt, assuming they don't play a snap. Which is what would happen unless Gardner were to be injured.
Maybe Hokes way of trying influence the situation or maybe he believes this to be true. Either way I hope he is accurate.
What Hoke said is coachspeak and people are acting like it's a Sure Thing.
Do people really think Hoke would say anything other than what he said?
I mean, seriously, do people think Hoke is going to get up there in a press conference and be like, "Oh he'es probably not going to get it." or "How the hell should I know?"
Given the nature of press conference communications under Hoke I just don't take anything he says in a presser too seriously.
Couldn't he just say, "we'll need to let the process play out. We are focused on our bowl game, sending our seniors out with a win, and controlling the things we can control."? Seems like that would be more coachspeak in that it really doesn't tell you anything one way or the other.
I hope this isn't the same as how Hoke expected Denard back for the 2nd half of Nebraska...

I love it! Our QB situation is looking bright with Devin, Russell and shane. There are some good quarterbacks In the 2015 class, I would LOVE jayru campbell, dual threat qbs.
Day to day.
We have 7 home games next season and our away games are UConn, PSU, MSU, Northwestern, Iowa. Depending on how the season goes, he may not even need the redshirt.
Sorry for myself being kinda slow, but are you implying him leaving for the draft ?
I'm saying that with a 11 or 12 win season, it's a distinct possibility.
MSU hopefully will be in full on Tire fire mode after narduzi takes a head coach job and may still can't figure out how to play offence.
That schedule looks like last years...anything less than a rosebowl will be a disappointment
Nebraska's the real challenge. They lose a lot on defense but almost the whole offense returns, including Martinez and Abdullah. Add in that Wisconsin and Ohio State rotate off their schedule and are replaced by Illinois and Purdue while we drop those teams for Wisconsin and Penn State and we begin the season at a scheduling disadvantage.
I agree with you, but (a) I like our D against their O (had we not given them incredible field position, we would have nearly shut them down this year), and (b) that game is back at our place.
Just like this year, the head to head win meant everything. If we beat them and still lose another Big Ten game, we're golden. Considering there's a decent chance they lose a second Big Ten game, we might be able to drop 2 non-Nebraska games and still go. But that game is the biggest game of the season next fall, and it's at home.
it's PSU and IU that rotate on in 2013, with Purdue and Illinois rotating off.
"We bring you to Michigan to take care of Michigan; your job is to protect that block M."
My bad. I thought "We haven't played Wisconsin in forever, we must play them next year."
Stupid New Big Ten.
We might not even play them then either. Maryland and Rutgers join in 2014, so the Big Ten schedule is gonna get reworked. Which is a damn shame, cause personally I was looking forward to going to Madison on Halloween weekend in 2015 (or 2016, whatever year we go there)
The fact that they don't play OSU is a disadvantage, but us adding Penn St. to the schedule isn't going to hurt us. Penn St. won't be anything close to what they were this year without McGloin and with the scholarship sanctions hitting.
Can we get the status of Mike Jones' redshirt.
USING GRATUITOUS AMOUNTS OF CAPS LOCK SINCE APRIL 2011
He got his redshirt, but I have doubts about whether he'll return next year.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: June 17
Remember that USA TODAY specifically mentioned Mike Jones as a key defensive contributor at LB this year. He'll get his redshirt if USA TODAY's sources are correct.
Mike Superman That Hoe Jones.
I know that most will take this as untrue, but I work with a family member of Devin and he said that the family thought the redshirt was for sure. He did imply that a highdraft grade might pull him into the pros after next year anyway.
Why is this post getting negged? Nothing bad about it at all.
