The Toussaint wishing well
I guess he owes you an apology for signing his LOI to play football at the University of Michigan too, right?
I believe Fitz is a redshirt freshmen. A little too early to label him an average back or a bust in my opinion.
Thanks for clearing the RB situation up for us coach. Dee Hart and Shaw would also like you to go fuck yourself as well.
Maybe too soon to write off a 19 year old kid don't you think?
I agree people should stop banging on about Toussaint. Rodriguez said Smith is our best back in pretty much every facet. With that said, he's supposedly quite promising. Let's hope he can stay healthy and improve. Maybe next year we'll see a lot of him. It's a crowded backfield, though.
He is our best option, but I think most are just trying to point out the fact that Fitz is still very young in his career. He can't be labeled a bust yet, we've barely seen him play.
I agree totally. The OP is wrong for writing him off and the aggressive tone is a little strange.
nobody threw out the Big Lebowski line. I guess because it's not really an opinion, it's more of a dumbass thing.
That said, Toussaint looks to me to fill a niche that isn't currently occupied -- he's heavier than either Shaw or Smith -- he gives Rodriguez a different set of options, especially for blocking.
IIRC that FormerWolve stated that Fitz was the number 1 back coming out of camp before he got hurt so no offense but I'm going to trust FormerWolve and the coaching staff that Fitz could be the real deal.
Yeah there have been a lot of positive rumblings. With competition for PT being as fierce in the backfield as it is, though, and with Fitz being as young as he is, you can't help but think his injury has set him back some. Again, maybe next year, but then we'll have senior Shaw, senior Smith and Dee Hart, not to mention Hopkins. I could see Fitz breaking out as a monster rs junior year.
Smith will be a junior next year.
Doesn't he have 2 carries for about 60 yards and a touchdown? Granted it was garbage time. But besides him being injured, there is absolutely no evidence to suggest he is "an average back". We all really have no idea.
Why am I even posting on this? I feel dumber just thinking about this OP.
Yes, but if you watch those two carries he wasn't even touched on either carry.
We really haven't had the opportunity to see him play, which is unfortunate considering the positive things we've heard about him. Maybe there will be time to see him play during the next couple of games or at least the bowl game.
Anyway you're also right about the OP. Clearly he's got super-secret double extra special with cheese passes to all the practices *and* coaches' meetings. We musn't doubt the man.
You do realize he was wearing a leg brace and was coming off an injury, don't you?
Making an assertion that Fitz is "an average back at best" makes as much sense as saying "Antonio Bass never amounted to anything." Even if you don't preface it with "I believe..."
Give it up with the eternal wishing that Mgoblueballer is gonna be some mysterious weapon that gets unleashed and saves the board the next 2 games. Yeah he is a bit of a douche, yeah he has has terrible timing, and yeah, I hope he can be 100% and get some forum skills. But there are many people that still need to get the delusions out of their head. He is an average poster at best, drunk or not. Our future at MGoBlog is not Mgoblueballer or Big Redacted. It's Boutros and Shredder. Get used to it.
I would not give up on jhackney; dude may not be 1K+ points but I laugh at every single one of his posts. Every single one. Also, Clarkie from Canada, dude brings it on every post. I actively seek out his posts to give him a posbang. He hasn't even posted in this thread but I still gave him a +1. The future is now, the posters are in place. These next 2 games, and the threads they spawn will be classic. Damn classic.
unsolicited shot at Big Redacted
Did he hit on your GF or soemthing? Jesus, dude. He hasn't even played meaningful minutes and you are ready to fluch the kids entire UofM career? I think I speak for the sane amongst us when I say go F yourself in the A, dick hole guy.
In the history of college football, there has never been a player who floundered with injuries or ineffectiveness before finding their stride late in their career and becoming a force for their team.
Nope. Has never happened.
I wanted this thread to be a thread about expressing your wishes w/r/t michigan football. Like, I wish Antonio Bass never had a career ending injury.
He sells us steel now. Looks good. I wonder if he can still run?
Yes, indeed. Fair enough. Glad he didn't sulk or give up.
if Antonio is still selling steel. My wife worked with him at Alro...she is in sales too.
She said one day recently she came to work and was told he left the company. No one seemed to know where he went or if he was still with them in another capacity.
She said he seemed like a very pleasant young man while he was there.
I wish Bielema would go to bed.
I was hoping Avery turned into Woodson, Ezeh into Irons, Mouton into Gold (no pun intended), and Banks into Graham.
Good luck with the other stuff though.
I bet you feel like a real douche for posting this now....
RR said today in his press conference smith is our best back right now, but fitz could provide a spark for us when he is 100%.
RR should have read the OP. Boy, is his face going to be red when he finds out the truth!
RR said today in his press conference smith is our best back right now, but fitz could provide a spark for us when he is 100%. too early to judge a man on 2 carries and being injured all year
and the guy above you.
Delete this garbage.
Leave it up for the negbombs!
This seems oddly . . . vindictive.
This is a post from the OP a couple weeks ago:
mgoblueballer: This is the first film I have seen on Conway. It seems to me like he runs lazy routs (0:50), gives up too early on plays (0:55), does not have great hands (1:18), blocks like a pansy (1:22), is afraid to take a hit over the middle (1:30) and lacks elite speed (2:12).
Im pretty sure Conway was also hurt. The OP seems to hate players who get injured and try to have an education. Which does not really matter because no one here likes him.
Your probably better off not posting things for awhile, you're just going to get negged.
I negged myself for reading what he said.
+1 for snarky remark... now you're even.
I negged you for negging yourself.
You really should see a doctor about those blue balls. Seems that it is affecting your psyche. Good luck with that!
Interesting choice going to a doctor for blue balls...probably would not have been my first choice
Which is better: Hooking up such that one gets blue balls or not hooking up at all (so as to avoid the blue balls)?
I'll gladly take an ice pack in the groin as fallout for that.
the former if only by chance down the road the balls do not continue to go blue.
Draw a line in the sand.
GO BLUE!!! and not in that way...
My IQ just dropped 5 pts just from reading OP's message. Easily one of the most ignorant, ill-informed things I've read in a long time on the blog.
OTOH, my suspicious mind wonders if it's really a brilliant evil scheme designed to elicit an absolute explosion of posbangs in the ensuing carnage. Hmmm.....
