rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference

Starting this thread mostly for the Doug Karsch jokes.
Man, Karsch is tall!
Dat goatee...Shave it Karsch. Kill it before it spreads.
He is stuck in the 90's with that soul patch.
Greetings from Bolivia.
"It's special how the real true people hang together. And if you don't support the program you're not a true Michigan guy. It's that simple." - Gary Moeller
Surprisingly not nearly as bad of questioning as the Countdown to Kickoff videos.
The CtK dude is one creepy guy.
Devin looks about a billion times more comfortable in interviews now than last year.
"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life." - Winston Churchill
He comes across as so poised, collected, and in control. I don't know if he's been coached up on interviews or if he just feels that much more comfortable than he did last year. Let's hope the latter.
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
You can't fake that kind of poise. He is definitely more mature than last year and I would say he's probably up there with dare I say it... Tom Brady? Here's my rationale... If you look at some of the great QBs we've had in the past, guys like Henne and Navarre and even Tate, they seemed to lack something in a leadership quality. For Navarre, I think it was confidence. With Henne, I think it was being a vocal leader and a bit of fire. With Tate, it was too much ego and not enough maturity and discipline. They all had skills and physical tools, but Devin seems to encompass everything you want in a starting QB. Should be fun to watch him apply it to the field.
I thought he was very comfortable in interviews last year. After only his second start, he was cracking jokes ("That's neither here nor there" about whether the pass to Roundtree was an overthrow or not).
Seems to be quite intelligent and has a good memory for different plays and his execution. Really hoping he can fully master the Al Borges playbook and get this offense to fire on all cylinders this season.
Also hoping Gordon can step up his trash talk game, the leader of the defense needs to keep his QB in check.
I'm looking more for Borges to master what makes sense in the 2013 college football world than I am for Gardner to master what he's told to do. The report of him studying how Kaepernick and RG3 were used last year is an encouraging start.
Every interview I see Devin do makes me love him that much more. If he performs like he is he has the potential to, I can see a #12 Legend's jersey in the future...
maybe because the only other time I've really ever heard him speak is when he was younger / an underclassman and maybe a bit more reserved. He's been impressing me in these little preseason videos
Is a stud. Speaks well, carries himself well. He is going to have an amazing two years at the helm.
I remember the South Carolina players even loved this kid before the bowl game. Im confident he will take the offense to the next level.
Reporter: “Did you visit the Parthenon while in Greece?”
Shaquille O’Neill: “I can’t really remember the names of all the clubs we went to.”
love this kid. 2 exciting years ahead with him at the QB position.
DEvin have always been a great kid to be around. And now since he will receive most of the mic time, you guys will really see his personality. great great kid
What you gonna do when hokemania RUNS wild over you?
In addition to loving him some terrible facial hair, Doug Karsh loves him some inappropriate use of the third person
Thank you for continuously uploading these videos. They're like...teaser trailers. Very much appreciated.
He is too cute.

"I promise you we would have walked to the University of Michigan." - Brady Hoke
I won't back down. Not after all the Kate Upton around here.
DG is like Taye Diggs, only hotter.
Damn, we are very fortunate to have another charismatic QB ready to step in to the starter's role. And the fact he seems to more well suited for the offense that Hoke wants to run makes me think he's destined for his own greatness.
You couldn't really ask for a better "face of the program" at least on the player level than DG. He seems like a hard worker and genuinely good dude. Was a 5 star who paid his dues and now it's his time to run the team.
1. 65 Waggle: "...and our TE wasn't as stout as I thought he would be and I just stepped up calmly against MN, he whiffed, he missed me and I made the pass, he got up and hit me and I felt like that was a pretty good deal."
2. "...that's how you make your money."
3. Get healthy Jake.
6. GO BLUE!
Let's see what he can do ...this is his era!

Just look at the characters we have at quarterback. We all know Denard and his shining personality, Devin is funny and seems like a great kid, and Shane has dat SWAG! I'll take the character of Hoke recruits over most of the SEC recruits any day.
Michigan National Champs: 1901-1904 1918 1923 1932 1933 1947 1948 1997
Hoke has only recruited one of those.
He only recruited Shane out of the 3 I named, but I would think coaching these players for a couple years would mean that he has had a strong impact on their character and how they handle themselves. Also I wasn't clear. The second part of my comment was directed towards the team as a whole, because it really seems like we have some really quality people.
Gardner is a very good interviewee. My favorite line is when he says that were make your money, referring to a play during the Minnesota game.
about to witness something special with DG
I believe that Devin will establish himself as one of the better (top 10) UM QB's of all time in the next two seasons, and it will be that much more amazing because he will do it without any big-time WRs.
He will not be drafted later than round two of the 2015 NFL draft.
Thank you, Coach Hoke, for bringing Michigan back.
