They want bigger, more physical players at just about every position, including running back. Lesser of two evils?
Rivals: Norfleet expected to return to offense
I was hoping he would come back to offense after watching him in all those 7 v 7 summer camps, his ability to not even let someone get hands on him was impressive.. Also taking home the mvp against a bunch of SEC recruits was pretty nice too..
Hope he can expand the roll that Smith had as he has much better speed and juking ability
Hindsight being 20/20 and all - Did we really think he'd be a DB forever. Wasn't it just for bowl practice since we were a little light there? (No Countess or Floyd)
O LETS DO IT!!!
but I do believe it is not in a 7 v 7 "coach" (another point of contention too) to yap about this. I know it isn't a trade secret prior to a big game but you are twice removed from the kid at UofM and just because he told you - you shouldn't spill this to rivalscout247et al....
This is great news! I have a feeling norfleet finally breaks one and gets his first return td in our home opener.
This is not a surprise.
it blows my mind that Ren and Stimpy was originally on Nickelodeon, intended for children. What a fucked up cartoon that was.
Happy, happy, joy, joy over this news!
Gott sei Dank!
Clearly this move is to make room for Charles Woodson to return for his last year of eligibility.
Because it's my all-time favorite:
Last great thing (and maybe only thing) Danny Hope has been part of.
He's like Tyrone Wheatley, except small.
OH PRAISE JEEBUS AND GORGEOUS AL
If this kid was really that good on offense do you think they would have moved him?
Yes, I think he's a better fit on offense and I'm glad he's back there, but I'm not sure he will make much of an impact.
My guess is his move made the team better for the bowl game. Denard had to get RB reps, and Norfleet is a freshman who is lower on the depth chart anyway. We were down CBs because a couple of guys got kicked off the team.... So yeah. He could really be that good at offense. The team just had an extra body at RB that needed a lot of work and they also needed bodies at CB. A temp switch makes a ton of sense.
The bottom line is Norfleet is going to be making more big plays on offense then he ever could have on defense.
