The Under Armour All-America Game is on today at 11:00 a.m. Be on the look out for Devin Gardner, Torrian Wilson, and Kenny Shaw. It should be interesting to see how Devin performs against the best players in the country at his level. I wasn't too impressed with how he played during his state title game. Hopefully he gives us a performance that gives us something dream about for the next 9 months.
Under Armour Game
going into the title game and his O-line was terrible. Should be worth watching this game with better talent around him.
I didn't know he was injured, but i was thinking the same thing about the better players around him. I'm really excited to watch him play.
Bama commit Philip Sims is probably gonna get the start for DG's team, but he'll be in before Montana's kid. Ha did anyone see the interview with that dude on GBW about Michigan prospects? I don't think he could reiterate enough how much he thought Shaw was a FSU lock.
Michael Dyer also broke off a pretty nice run.
Man i hate to say it but if gholston stays in MSU he is gonna be a pain for the next four years, kid looks real good. Luckily we got DG who can outrun him i guess
Even by All-Star game standards. End of the 1st quarter, no Gardner sightings.....yet.
A decommitment from PSU (good) and then committing to Florida (gag) on national tv (and no, he didn't seem sure). There's something kinda obscene about this monster we've helped create.
I'd be happy about a player abandoning a Big 10 school only when it does not involve enrichment of our country's most annoying football conference (i.e., the SEC). I'm not enthusiastic about increasing odds of hearing "DANGOLETEAMSPEED" a few thousand times when an SEC school beats a Big 10 school. Yesterday was extremely pleasant and I'd like to have more bowl days like that. If elite players from all over (@#$%ing Staten Island in this case) continue to get sucked into the SEC vortex, life will be miserable.
Then, again, you never know with these guys. You may remember that Tim "50" Jamison was once the "unblockable" guy at an all-star game.
If we don't have to play them, all the better. I'd rather hear SEC SEC SEC than Michigan loses again.
Kenny Shaw commits next, and people have said theres gonna be some surprises, Michigan?
to Florida State.
Kenny Shaw to FSU
This game is quite a turn over fest
dang tons of turnovers
Thank God that Dominique Easley decided to drop his commitment from PSU and switched. He would have raped Big Ten OL. Glad we won't have to see him outside of the slim chance we play Florida in a bowl game.
I really dont know what he's thinking, it was scary looking at floridas' recruiting class when they showed it during the AA game, good thing Meyer said he would be coming back in August(that was the last I heard). I would'nt want to lose that class either.
Heh! We all know what happened last time we played Florida in a bowl game...
I'm definitely biased but I thought DG was the best at moving the offense. He really needs some work with the passing game but seemed to make the right decisions on the read options (if they were read options and not just called runs). His TD pass was nice. The receiver he threw to was his 2nd or 3rd option so he did a good job keeping his eyes downfield. That ball would have been picked at the college level but he still did some good things on that play.
I think today just ended a lot of future forum topics, as it's quite clear that Tate needs to be the starter next year. Should be a good QB for us once he gets some QB coaching and a decrease in timidness.
commentator said something about being a short amount of time to prep, so the focus should be defense line, offense line and then QB as the order of importance. Somewhere in there is special teams, b/c so many muffs, kids trying to be stars but couldn't hold the ball, good learning opportunity for them. Same has been true in B10 bowl wins, Wisc and osu defense won the battle, emo.
