This time last year, how many of you were thinking "I can't wait until next year when Denard Robinson will become one of the most dynamic and statistically dominant offensive players in Michigan history." Or were you thinking, "Next Year Denard could be a great slot or maybe even a 3rd down/wildcat threat." The point is, I think we are way to quick at dismissing young players on this board. This year, since so many starters struggled, the assumption seems to be that every young kid riding the bench must be even worse. Or even worse, true freshmen who were forced to play and got blown up were written off (ie. Cullen Christian). Sure, but that is the nature of being a young player, there is the distinct possibly of massive improvement. So on a more positive note, I just want to start a prediction thread on which young players (2011 underclassmen) will have big break-out seasons next year.
1. Courtney Avery- Will become a lock down man coverage corner in the new scheme
2. Issiah Bell - Needed extra time after transforming body into linebacker.
3. Fitz - The big health if. But if man...if.
As a little side experiment, I will tally all the votes and post results next week. One thing I want to look for is if there is a correlation between mgopoints and the accuracy of prediction. That will have to wait until next year, but I always wanted to know if spending this much time on this site makes someone more knowledgeable in a meaningful way. So don't let me down 10,000+ pointers.
