Due to broken foot, per ESPN. Presser reveals he is not listed on Michigan's depth chart.
Post updated as more concrete information becomes available
You're just all about duplicate topics today. RR said in his presser that his foot is broken.
but it was not covered whether it was a 'bootable' injury. this implies he will likely miss Iowa and possibly games thereafter.
also, i tend to rush to get a post up with a descriptive headline (searchable at least) to avoid 13 other posts being made.
I came in here to rip whoever started this when the RR Presser is right below it and there is a conversation about injuries in there. I think it's only fair that you practice what you preach.
was about his demeanor and a lack of information. various bits came out, including a confirmation the foot was broken. that he is now out indefinitely is at worst news, at best a hot topic. this is not someone going on a tangent of 3-3-5 defenses being flawed when there's 9 topics on it. the only reason i created the post is bc it will be created 9 times over if i don't.
I read that other post and missed the into on Odoms. True also that it's more important than why the 3-3-5 betrayed Jesus with a kiss and shot Tupac.
But it's probably deserving of it's own thread regardless
ah yes just got that ESPN text message. damn.
..We throw three WRs out there it seems likely that it'll be Stonum-Roundtree-Hemingway. What would four WRs mean? Stonum-Grady/Robinson-Roundtree-Hemingway? Should this in any way affect Stokes playing time, even though he's a SE? Does Jeremy Jackson get more playing time? So many questions
over T-Rob. Grady has shown a strong mastery of the routes and playbook and has a few plays designed specifically to get him the ball (end-arounds, mostly). You'll see Stonum and Hemingway as the permanent outside WRs, with Stokes the primary backup, and Roundtree/Grady as the slots.
I'm not sure if Stokes is ahead of Jeremy Jackson. I've seen Jackson out there from time to time.
But the Unofficial Two Deep is telling me that Jeremy Jackson should be starting now.
That unofficial two deep was last updated two and a half weeks ago. The depth chart that came out today lists our three WR's as Hemingway-Stonum-Roundtree, with Jeremy Jackson OR Je'Ron Stokes backing up outside and Kelvin Grady backing up Roundtree at the slot.
This is real bad news, not so much just because he is a good wide out, but because of his blocking skills. My own personal opinion why denard had a tough time getting things going on the ground was due to subpar blocking by the wide outs (compared to what they have done so far this year) we will see if the UFR agrees with that. Now losing Odoms, our best blocking wide out, in my opinion, this problem may be exacerbated. Let’s hope the wide outs can stay on the Iowa corners and safety's for the few seconds it takes for denard to blow by them.
I repeat, the billy goat is down. Dammit. He is tough as hell, a great blocker, fast and clutch. Also, it's too late for a medical redshirt. Pretty much your worst case scenario.
Man that is a tough injury for Odoms and the team, he was a great blocker and was good on the outside this year. Hopefully he will heal up before the end of the season, or at the very least be 100% for his senior season.
Odoms is my favorite "low-key" player. His contributions are typically overshadowed to a large majority of the fanbase. I wish him a speedy recovery.
He is my favorite "low-key" player as well.
We will feel his loss and wish him a speedy recovery.
odoms was playing on the outside. we have great depth at the position. so while no one is happy that odoms is injured and we all wish him a speedy recovery, we have the depth to overcome his loss.
Saw him today in Mason Hall...had a big boot on and crutches. I know we have WR depth and all, but it really, really sucks to lose him. Here's to a speedy recovery.
Second year in a row he has a significant injury in Big Ten play. Hopefully he'll at least be back for some of the November games.
this is definetely a tough loss but if we have a major strength on our team its depth at wr. kelvin grady has been playing really well and should step right in. im hoping guys like T rob and gallon will step up also at the slot position
odoms doesnt play in the slot anymore, guys like jeremy jackson and jeron stokes need to step up in place of odoms
my bad. thanks for the correction
injury would have been pretty terrible, because of the question mark we had at reciever even going into last season. Although you never want to lose a player that has the energy of Odoms, it seems as though the other recievers have stepped up and we have some guy to guys at the position.
ESPN mentioned one of the Rodgers boys from Oregon St and how his injury from this weekend could turn into a medical redshirt.
Does anybody have access to the rules on this - can we get this for Tay Odoms if he's down for the count?
Probably because OSU (not THAT osu) has only played 5 games, less than half of the season.
Found it...(Odoms is SOOL)
To qualify for a medical hardship:
(a) the student-athlete’s injury or illness must occur in one of the four seasons of intercollegiate competition or subsequent to the first day of classes in the student-athlete’s senior year in high school;
(b) the injury or illness must occur prior to the completion of the first half of the playing season that concludes with the NCAA championship in that sport and must result in incapacity to compete for the remainder of that playing season; and
(c) the injury or illness must occur when the student-athlete has not participated in more than two contests/dates of competition or 20% of the institution’s scheduled contests/dates of competition in his/her sport (whichever number is greater).
This has been discussed here a few times. Basically, after week four you're out of luck.
Fair enough. Good responses from my fellow posters, and I guess we are SOL on Tay Odoms. Lets hope for the quick heal.
Tay is my favorite current Wolverine. He's a tough guy, a gritty blocker, taking on defensive players much taller and weightier than himself. I love his resolve. I'm very sorry he's hurt.
