Today's Practice (VIDEO)
Now I can sleep tonight.
I just woke up!
Jonas Mouton looks like Donovan McNabb.
Apparently he's now up to 240, and Ezeh is at 250 even.
I think he was referring to the beard..
this summer. Nice over the shoulder motion and no shot put motion.
I could have easily watched 3 hours of that stuff. Keep it comin!
Cue the Hallelujah Chorus
Should I be happy or mad that Junior Hemmingway was able to toss aside our biggest cornerback like a rag doll?
not so for our biggest corner
But it's one play fellas. Every CB gets beat. JT may have picked off the next one
Sarcastic comment about earlier thread.
Needs more curl routes. Also, Denards pass looked wobbly. I'm not one to overreact to a single bit of video, but I don't know if he should be on the team if that is as well as he can throw.
Yeah! Cut him, the BUST.
Your angry side needs to meet your side that filters sarcasm. Then they need to get high and just hang out for a while. Maybe they could learn a few things about eachother and shit.
Your sarcasm wasn't that funny and could then be mistaken for you being serious.
are RUINING Festivus for me. This is a happy day. Watch Hemingway's loping stride and be happy...
Hemingway's loping strides are always going to be at the expense of our secondary in our practice videos, which scares me. Who was he lined up against in that last clip?
It rhymes with Schmusitn Schmurner.
So the prevailing theory that Turner has gotten too big to play corner seems to be true, at least based on the one play we get to see.
I don't know why they don't try him at a hybrid spot. Seems like he's grown into a tweener.
6' 2" now, get him up to 215lbs, see what happens.
I've thrown that same idea out, but people have pointed out that the depth chart drops off in a big hurry after Woolfolk, Floyd, Christian, and Turner.
That can't be good...
In a game, that's probably a 12-yard gain on the slant. We won't be leaving Turner on an island this year. He'll play more of a boundary corner. He'll be tasked with underneath coverage, proper leverage, and sure tackling rather than with blanket coverage.
I got a good read on Denard's mechanics on that video I think he currently leads in the starting qb race.
This makes me happy in my pants....
I see we think alike.
You two should go out for coffee some time. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
to see JT Turner eventually moved to safety. notice at the end of the clip, hemingway has little trouble moving around him at the line. i know its early, no pads, etc - however he seems to lack that agility necessary to CB. i still can't wait though to see his athleticism on the field, in any capacity...
Hemingway is on his way to the #1 jersey next year...
I totally saw that too. He should be cut. What a zero.
just saying he's closer to being the next Tripp Welbourne instead of Charles Woodson...
So you make big.
i hope he proves me wrong
Denard's throwing motion is still a little sidearm for my tastes but if he can put the ball on the money, no big deal.
Tate's pass showed a little more zip than we saw at the end of last year. Good to see.
I still hope we can redshirt Gardner, but man, he throws a good-looking ball.
I hope we can redshirt Gardner too. If not that means that Tate and D-Rob are both dead or we are off to a horrid start. I don't see either happening so I see him taking a redshirt. I think we really need the extra year in between him and Tate/D-Rob for him to gain experiance and poise so that he can come in next year or so and dominate.
I'm quite sure he did...
... Don't tell me if he didn't
2 QB's who can play. Get after it boys
is like a girl telling you "just the tip". Bah.
Best. Simile. Ever.
I think I have a man crush on Greg Frey.
Ray looks like he could use a few extra reps at the training table. He's 193 pounds like Tate was 185 last year...
My soul is going to have blueballs for the next month.
and a wake-up.
...even your balls go blue.
I feel like Bubbles & Johnny
The one substantive thing I got from the video: Devin has a visor, nice. I love it like everyone else but the characterization of a player based on a mistake or two made in a 1:30 long video is silly.
That was my favorite part of the video. I am glad i wasn't the only one who came away from that clip excited about Devin and his visor. In my mind, a quarterback wearing a visor will FUCK. SHIT. UP.
I think watching that again seems like a good idea.
GERG's hair is as glorious as ever.
I believe he is going with a less is more approach this season...and I totally dig it.
I need some real action to satisfy me. Yes I know that's what she said.
im pumped. really, theres no other way i can describe my feelings about the season right now. i cant wait for kickoff vs UConn.
Did GERG cut his locks?
This frightens me as well. I hope the shedding of his beautiful silver dome for the military cut will not hurt our LB play.
1. Anyone see Will Campbell? I was hoping to see how he looked after the summer. Here's hoping he's in shape.
2. EEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! First day of practice is finally here!!
Works for me. Thank you, Lord, for giving us this day.
two things in this short clip stood out to me. First was Junior Hemingway, this kid is special. I think we will be seeing a lot of double moves in the season from him. Secondly, Devin Gardner's pass play. It looked well thrown. Thus begins the 131st season of Michigan football.
Hemingway stick the double move and quickly get to the open field. However, I didn't enjoy seeing #2 (Turner?) get burned.
blazefire and the white tiger! Had to watch the vid again for gergs hair! Finally UM football is here, All in for speed and hard edge!
It was an actual practice.
I waited so long I was expecting an exhibition game in the Big House in full pads against the Steelers. Got a little ahead of myself.
Good to hear Will Hagerup is having no problems punting balls after the crap we saw in the spring game.
UConn has no idea what is about to be unleashed come Sept. 4.
Two things I noticed, I love that Devin now has a visor and I think Je'Ron Stokes is damn fast off the line.
Je'Ron Stokes's routes are crisp, and he comes out of that break quickly. If this is any indicator of his progress, I'd expect him to see the field some time this year.
Was that Je'Ron in the #6 jersey? I know the roster lists him as #6, but I thought he was more of an outside receiver, and he looked more like a slot receiver in the video. My memory could be failing me completely, so correct me if I'm wrong.
Either way, he looked good.
Was it just me or did Gardner look really skinny?
He did, because he is. He's also 6'5" so he has yet to really fill out completely. Eh, I'm not too concerned as long as he doesn't get ripped in half, which I doubt.
