Maize n Brew Dave provides us with some seriously interesting insights from his extensive pre-draft interview with Zoltan Mesko. A sampling:
[Who's impressed in spring practice?]
There are a lot of young guys that have the potential to be something unbelievable. Justin Turner, for instance. I only see bits and pieces of practice, because I'll do my own thing indoors with the other special teamers, but when I do watch practices, Justin Turner was like white-on-rice with the receivers. He's still learning, but if he was on the receiver, it was like he knew what the receiver was doing next.
[What's your reaction to your cult hero status?]
In my wildest dreams I never would've imagined this. I don't know... maybe it's the weird name I have that people can recognize pretty easily. I guess they link it to the movie "Dude, Where's My Car" and do the Z symbol. It's unbelievable. I've seen a couple of shirts printed of me, and it's like "Wow." I don't know why people are this crazy about their punter, but I accept it with open arms and I'm so thankful to have had this experience at Michigan. I mean I was voted Homecoming King in 2008, how's that for unbelievable?
Tons of great Q&A on how Michigan conducts its practices, what the draft combine experience was like, the answer to whether or not he can hit the roof of Newsterbaan with a football, info on his relationship with Lloyd Carr, etc.
This is a must read for all MGoBlogsters.
