I'm positive that I read something before the season started, but I can't recall. Where has Martavious Odoms been? Thanks.
in re: is GRIII on a tear
I saw a woman whom I presume what his mom at the game wearing a jersey with a button with his picture on it. I was going to ask how Tay was doing but I decided against it. I guess I should have so I could actually contribute something useful to this thread.
he has been reported of having a cast on his left arm, dont think he will be playing if he cant use both hands correctly
Ahh, but he did play. Albeit in a very limited number of snaps.
Better delete this thread. I asked the same question one week ago and got deleted in 2 minutes.
This is a little off-topic, but damn, our receivers were great. They won jump balls, avoided drops, made clutch catches, and got serious YAC. A+ to those guys.
umm i remember some drops there balls that could have very easily been caught.
Yea Hemmingway dropped one that would have went for a first down. Thats one I recall off the top of my head.
Roundtree let a 15-yarder go through his hands in the first half, too.
I got 2 issues with this post that I felt like posting about:
1) Really? Treating Rich Rod like he is Voldemort or some crap is just pathetic. The guy didn't understand the Michigan Brand, this we know, but his biggest down fall was his lack of defensive integrity and GERG. I may catch flack for this but I really wanted Rich Rod to succeed when he was here, but I understand he had his chance to do so.
2) Moving on the Hemingway. Rich Rod had NOTHING to do with how much Hemingway has/has not accomplished. I had this exact talk with a buddy of mine last night after the game. Hemingway was a 5* recruit but he was injured much of his career. Now that he is healthy, he is getting that chance to shine and he is doing so.
5*? I'm pretty sure he was a 3* to rivals.
Hemingway wasn't even close to a 5-star.
I agree Heminway wasn't close to a 5* on either of the major recruiting sites (Rivals and Scout) but he was ranked the 19th overall player in the country by ESPN, which would qualify as a 5* recruit under their modern star rankings (ESPN did not give stars back in 2007). So while I do consider ESPN the least reliable of the 3 sites, the poster is only partially incorrect in calling Hemingway a 5*.
My bad, but Hemingway was via ESPNs ranking like Blue_in_Cleveland said was 19th (i actually thought it was 17th) but I figured that would be good enough for a 5* but he was better than a 3*.
Either way, injuries are the reason Hemingway hasn't put up the numbers he is capable of.
Oh for fuck's sake. If you're going to be an ass, at least learn how to spell Hemingway's name. Have some respect.
Also, you don't deserve the Wire.
Odoms played last night. We never threw the ball to him, though. He still has a cast on his wrist.
Odoms had a different cast on yesterday, thus he played a leetle. Vs. WMU Odoms had a cast like Troy Woolfolk this week covering some fingers. Yesterday was just a forearm cast.
I assume the injury and the play of Gallons and Grady are keeping him off the field. I'm so glad we have the next few weeks to heal up before our schedule gets tougher.
Is bull shit
