FWIW, I've gathered as many freshman jersey numbers as I can:
Shane Morris to wear the famed #7 jersey, J.J. McGrath #46
So how is that phone app coming along Magnus, never gonna let it go.
I've made the new phone app available to everyone but you. Sorry.
My friend is Derrick Green's art teacher. He said he will keep #27 at Michigan. She got him to sign a ball for me. Just FYI for anyone who cares about jersey numbers.
EDIT: And then I decided to not be lazy and read the post directly above mine. Oops, redundant.
That would be an interesting conversation to have in art class.
"Hey Derrick, can I see you for a minute at my desk?"
(He walks over, uncertain of the reason. Other students assume he's busted.)
"Ms _______, I promise, my papier-maché mask is almost done!"
"So . . . what jersey number are you going to wear next year?"
I had to call in alot of favors to get her to do this. She said she never felt as unprofessional asking a student to autograph memorabilia after class.
Shane Morris will not red shirt. Reports coming out of Schembechler hall that some coaches expect him to push Gardner for the starting job.
I really hope that he only pushes Gardner if it's because Shane is advanced and picking up the offense quickly, offers more to the team....if it's because Gardner isn't performing, we may be in for a sad 2013 season.
We know what Gardner is capable of doing in Borges' offense, and it's pretty damn good. If Morris is pushing him as a freshman, then I'm extremely excited for the next 4-5 years.
No way Shane pushes Devin for the starting job. That would be dropping the playbook from 90 percent to 20 at most.
Reports? Considering Morris hasn't participated in one official Michigan practice yet, I'm not sure how much credence to give that other than wishful thinking. Do we even know if he's physically recovered completely from the mono he had last fall?
The only way Shane Morris doesn't redshirt this season is if Devin Gardner gets hurt. I'm praying it doesn't happen.
That's not good news, because that means Gardner must be terrible.
Morris isn't going to be a good college QB right off the bat.
Waded thru the W0RST THREAD HIGHJACK EVER ...but am grateful to post in support of Rick Leach's #7 being once again worn by a Michigan QB.
Who knows, maybe by the time Adidas starts making them the build quality will be worth replacing my Henne-era Nike versions with.
