I read Forde's article on ESPN and he directly compared Tate 2009 to Denard 2010. He has a less constructive and more pessimistic, anti-Michigan tone when he seems to assume Denard doesnt have the intelligience to tie his shoes, and that Michigan should have used their extra practice time in 2009 to teach Denard how to tie his shoes. This is typical of ESPN, the same people that have him at the top of their Heisman board are ripping him. I trust Denard when he says he doesnt read all that stuff, its worthless. For now, let just enjoy watching Denard do his thing and let the other stuff happen. Denard isnt paying attention to it, why should we?
"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
