Yes, this video is from Rivals from the first day of practice.
More Spring Practice Video
Thank you Magnus, should I take it down? It was new action for me and thought it might be nice for other people to see it but I don't want to clutter the board.
Nah, I don't think you should take it down. I'm sure some people haven't seen it yet. I've only seen it over at Rivals. I guess it's up to Rivals to get it removed if it's copyright infringement on Youtube's part.
I liked the video, I don't have a Rivals subscription either, and I'm jonesing for some football.
I really liked the breakdown drill with the safeties. Learning how to tackle in space is a really hard skill to learn.
I'd have liked Robinson to catch that pass from Forcier. Based on a sample of one, he'll have a tough time if he needs to transition to receiver.
Stephen Hopkins ran directly toward the camera... and I flinched.
Beyond that... Roh looked big, and Gardner's delivery looked pretty good.
Please get here soon September...
or at least april 17
you see Leach then Demens, then Roh just looks like a beast. Fitz also looks quick, probably the player I'm most interested in seeing this fall with Turner coming in a close second.
Better the groin than between the numbers.
Between the numbers thou mean only taco pants can get it not the oppositions secondary.
Yeah, Stephen Hopkins might be pretty damn big, but Toussaint looks like a fucking bulldozer for his height. I've been excited to see that kid play for two years now.
I mean, I love march madness and all, but that was the best four minutes of my day.
what she said.
And I agree with her. I muted the tourny to watch the clip in all its John Williams-esque glory.
Is it bad that I'm more excited for Michigan's spring practice than I am for the NCAA Tournament?
I see nothing wrong with your statement.
I think it would be bad if you were more excited for the NCAA tournament than Michigan spring practice. Just my opinion though.
especially the running backs. fitz looks like one hell of a running back and i was impressed by the footwork and running style of mike cox. i take it gallon and grady are some of the slot recievers that RR said would be in the running back drills?
Not at all, becuse I was also.
I'm a fanatic.
look at the way he wrapped up that tackling dummy! And how that running back darted around those cones!"
I have a problem.
That Michigan is gonna do pretty good next season.
Is it bad that I want to rewatch it after about 30 seconds of finishing it?
Not at all.... Not at all....
I'd be worried if you didn't.
A Justin Turner sighting!
Jeremy and Kelvin are pretty quick...
Who was throwing the passes to the receivers!? Hopefully not Tate and Denard
Tate has that accuracy he showed last year.
Martavious Odums is now a grizzled veteran.
Kevin Leach looks like he put on some size.
Those sleds the "O" line was pushing around are cool.
Thanks for posting that!
yes doesn't seem possible that Odoms is now a Junior.
Yeah, Odoms has been one of my favorites since his freshman year. I anticipate feeling, at times, a deep sense of sadness during his Senior year. Hopefully, these next two seasons will be fantastic not only for him, but for the team in order to maximize his last two years and his future NFL potential.
I enjoyed that way, way too much.
Fall can't get here soon enough.
This video got me really excited for the Spring Game. I've been waiting to see Fitz in action since he committed to Michigan. I think he would have end up having the starting job last year if it wasn't for that injury. Fitz is the real deal.
I like how Coach Dews ran with the receivers.
The music was a nice addition, and the video showed some players I had been curious to see in action.
Fitz is officially -- to borrow another users term -- a power tank ninja.
Thanks for posting.
I have a question for the football drill experts:
Around the 54 seconds in, the dbs are doing what seems like a tackling drill. Why do they do an upward motion after grabbing the bag?
It's supposed to simulate exploding up and through the ballcarrier. Rather than just reaching out and hugging the bag (or the ballcarrier), it's a constant reminder that tacklers should violently explode the ballcarrier.
I use it with my linebackers, and it seems to help a bit. Even when we're working against air, for example, when I blow the whistle or yell "hit", they're suppposed to simulate the explosion.
Jesus Christ, those winged beauties are a sight for sore eyes. It's been one hell of a long winter.
Insider tidbits suggest that if crappy practice adds up to a good season, then our defense should be awesome this year.
looked crisp on his throws, and his shoulders look a lot sturdier than the 5-6 pounds that he officially gained would indicate. I'm excited to see him get back on the field this season.
