That ricardo lewis guy playing receiver for black has the goofiest stride I've seen in skill player. I'm really surprised he's this highly rated and going to auburn. It looked like he was trying to climb some stairs and kept missing the step up.
Open Thread: Under Armour Game
Between Bolden and Ryan we will definitely have the best haired linebacking corps in the country.
Bolden also diagnosed a reverse and forced the reciever out of bounds a few plays ago for like a 2 yard gain.
Really wish we had pressed Ifeadi Odenigbo harder. Kid is going to be a stud at the next level.
Yeah, nice play there. He sure is lanky.
Here's the roster so you can actually find anyone you want to watch on the field:
Josh Garnett is in for White. Just got in a small facemask shove on Bolden following a play. He is a big fella.
Just started watching.. is he playing RT??
I saw him at LG actually. Had a nice aggressive run block and pushed his man upfield. Showed some spark I thought. I think he had been moving around a little though.
His stock is going to rise big time after this game.
In stark contrast to the kicker for the White team... ziiiiing.
He's the #1 ranked kicker according to ESPN. Doesn't look like he can kick off the ground a lick maybe he needs a tee.
Did anyone catch the trench battle with Garnett and Bolden? Both fighting till the whistle. Go Blue, PLEASE GOD, Go Blue Garnett!
He started at LG
They just can't stop saying Boldens name, nor should they.
Solely watching Bolden on these last two series. Impressive. He has good footwork and keep his head on a swivel. I really like his awareness and I've noticed that twice he directed the other backer on what route to cover. This kids knows football and I am damned excited about seeing him in the winged helmet.
Ironically I gave up tickets to this game to one of my junior troops this afternoon. Maybe I should have went......nah.....south St. Pete sucks.
Wes Brown is a terp. Looks like home is where his heart is.
Cant say Im sad we didnt get Wes Brown... the sentence he just mumbled sounded like he drank a fifth of Jim Beem
Can someone give me a link for the Army American Bowl NUMERICAL roster? Or at least give me the jersey numbers of the Michigan commits?
I would like to know so I know which players to watch.
Was it not listed in the OP?
The Army All-American Bowl is the game on saturday that features Kalis, Royce, Ross etc.
Here's the roster for the Army game: http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com/content.asp?SID=880&CID=1307668

I've been watching Bolden pretty much exclusively, and I have to say I'm quite impressed with his ability to recognize. On the pass plays where he has a man to cover out of the backfield, he's all over them as well.
I always feel LBs are always hard to scout during HS games, because O and D lines are such a mess, and I feel good LBs can get lost in the chaos. With top talent on the field here, I think Bolden is showing his skills very well. His instincts are excellent, and he looks VERY comfortable in coverage. Often you'll see backers simply go to their zone because that's where they're supposed to be. Bolden gets depth, finds his man, and passes the receiver off to the next defender (again, good instincts and good communication).
The only minus I've seen is that, since he "plays with his head on fire," he gets a tad overzealous and, like we saw a couple times, he missed a tackle. I think that's a trait often seen in high school players because sometimes you gotta make the play yourself due to lack of talent. With our coaches...kid's gonna be good.
But we knew that already.
Bolden will be a stud. I hope we can redshirt him!
I feel a perverse pleasure when a kid turns down LSU/Bama for his hometown team
3 shocking commitments so far.
Is there a translating filter that can be use while watching the game? Having a hard time understanding the school choices.
HA! Bolden not in this series, and the fist play is a run right up the gut for 27 yards; LB played the run terrible.
what a catch!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dari Nowkah's face when the kid committed to ECU was awesome. Almost like "Seriously?!? ECU?! Are you drunk?" great stuff
For all I know Dari is a great guy off-camera. On-camera, though, he's a classic ESPN tool.
Did you just hear the announcer say that one of the players isn't going to have to worry about cutting his fingernails since his arms will drag on the ground as he walks to class? I know he's talking about wingspan but c'mon. That's cutting it close.
I'm pretty sure only you went there. He was obviously praising the kid.
Because he has long arms?
Just goes to show you, it's more than just getting top tier talent, it's about getting them ready to play at the college level.
Haven't seen much of Terry Richardson. Does anyone know the story there? I know he's battled through injuries during the season...
There he is on the return.
#1 Black Uniform: Saw him out there on right side and white team didn't throw it how way
I wish the NFL had college pass interference rules.
Gotta that ESPN lists height as needs work for Poole...yeah start putting yourself in some sort of medieval torture device and get on that.
And yet still earned a starting spot. And has also not yet been victimized by those big plays the white team is getting.
Man, Bolden was just a finger length away from an INT there.
Yep, Richardson just drew an offensive PI after a receiver pushs when Terry actually had pretty good coverage on a deep ball.
Richardson fumbled on the kickoff return
just put the ball on the ground. Oh no..
There is live chat on ESPN now with some analysts. They are getting asked over and over again about Garnett and they keep saying its looking good for Michigan.
Also, Bolden leads team with 5 tackles in the 1st half.
Spence is looking good.
Has Jameis Winston gotten all the snaps? He seems to be in all the time when I switch over during commercial breaks.
