Thought this might be fun and a good break from conference expansion/explosion topics. After reading the Braylon Edwards post and comments, I got to thinking, who are people predicting will be the next Michigan player to don the No 1 Jersey? Do you think he's in AA now, or coming in the next class? Personally I think Roy Roundtree has an excellent chance of having a break out season this year and No 1 making its debut after a couple year hiatus.
Who's the Next No 1
I'm actually not really sure if I'm kidding or not. The kid has HANDS.
Please check back with this thread in 3-5 years.
There hasn't been a receiver yet in the past 2 years that has shown to be deserving of the #1.
I would say 2 years from now, hopefully someone will emerge.
Sadly, the past two seasons the number one has been worn all too often by TacoPants.
Has his eligibility expired yet?
I hate to be a downer, but I don't think the next #1 is here in AA yet (or has taken the field).
I remember seeing Braylon and Manningham (didn't wear it but could have) and just knowing that no matter what the situation, they were going to beat the defense and come up with a HUGE play. There is certainly no doubting that Navarre/Henne had something to do with this, but I'm just not convinced that our offense (as constructed) currently has a dominating receiver capable of wearing the #1.
For my money, I see the next #1 being a bigger, more Athletic possession type receiver. Ricardo and Conway both come to mind, but they're also both MILES away from consideration.
Agreed on Conway.
I'm hoping he can have a coming out party this year. I know he's not the fastest, but he does have a knack for beating the corners deep. I feel he would like to show what he can do when he's healthy and is ready to take out his frustrations on opposing Ds.
I am with Blazefire on this, outside shot, but the guy wants to make those types of plays, get the ball in his direction when the game is on the line, he will make the catch.
Do we really have to have this posted every month?
but we know how much you love it, so we do it for your sake.
he will switch to WR, then?
No, shit, Blazefire... Denard is going to get the snap, chuck it on a rope, and BLAZE his Dilithium ass downfield to catch, run, score, Heisman pose, and spike that shit to the tune of 6 points (no penalty, can't explain). And probably kick the extra.
C'mon Blazefire, you and some other guy are my 2 favorite posters... embrace the vision!
EDIT: too much Chardonnay and poor reading... several of you tried this with even less gusto. My bad. Go easy.
Yes. I don't know if we'll have another 1,000 yard receiver in the next few years. We have a lot of good receivers, but not a dominant one. Let's just try to throw many more TDs than INTs.
Sounds to me like the MGoCommunity needs you to start 3 new threads pronto!
I hope either Ricardo Miller (because I think he will be a great representative of the University) or Shawn Conway (because he is a man-child who I think will dominate) will wear it.
Denard Robinson. He'll be the first ever QB/WR combo capable of throwing a pass and being fast enough to run down field and catch it himself.
Denard is perhaps my favorite current wolverine, but man we really need some new material. At least once a day someone comes out with the some form of the "Denard will pass the ball to himself" line.
whoops, tried that myself without a full read of the banter. my bad. go easy. (ducking the neg bang)
Is anyone aware of what criteria has been used or is planned to be used to make this decision? Besides knowing past players that have worn it, I don't know if its purely a gut feeling about a player after or season, or if Braylon has worked with RR to create some criteria, like a minimum of this many catches and yards, must be a wide reciever and not primarily slot reciever, and then its a gut decision. Any knowledge or even assumptions would be appriciated.
I dont care. I wish we could retire the number, so we could retire this topic
Aram Keteyian is the current #1. Surprisingly, he is not the starter. That would be Chris Blais, although he wears #23. Must have been a Jordan fan growing up...
Oh sorry, I thought this was a discussion about who will be the next GK on the Men's Soccer Team to wear the #1 jersey. I made this assumption as surely we couldn't be having the same #1 jersey conversation about football, again.
Stonum for his Senior year, then Shawn Conway(his highlight tape says Braylon all over it)
