I believe this article is what Brian would call fluff.
Still, I think it's good pub for Michigan. Funny how they don't mention Gabe Watson or Alan Branch, both teammates of Woodley and Breaston while at Michigan.
In your opinion, now that he is back in the fold, does M cool on it's recruitment of say a Bennie Logan?
For all those interested - Morgan Trent is headed to the Senior Bowl. I'm happy for him. I didn't watch it, but apparently he played decently at the East West Shrine Game and had a key interception that led to a field goal.
Good luck to him and Tim Jamison.
Here is an interview with Michigan's current signal caller Steve Threet done by the Toledo Blade. It sounds like he is ready to go. Let's look forward to good Qb competition in the fall. Hopefully, he will either push Tate to be better or vice versa. In a world with maize and blue, both happen.
I'm sure I am not the only one who has noticed this, but this SuperBowl is going to be a huge gathering of Michigan football alumni. I'm so excited.
15 - Steve Breaston: everyone's favorite punt returner. He's turned out to be a great third receiver for Warner and had his first 1,000 yard receiving year this year.
84 - Jerame Tuman: signed off the streets a week ago because one of their tight ends got hurt, so he might not see any playing time. still, he's had a very solid career. Does anyone know if he won a ring when Pittsburgh won it years ago?
78 - Alan Branch: I believe he is hurt and has done virtually nothing so far in his career for the Cards
98 - Gabe Watson: rotates regularly in the defensive line rotation (shouldn't he switch numbers with Branch?)
57 - Victor Hobson: signed for more linebacker depth and special teams player. I feel he should at least get some PT somewhere next year if he isn't back with the Cards
50 - Larry Foote: not sure if he starts, but is a regular in the defense, came up with a huge interception last week
56 - LaMarr Woodley: Big Wood! Has had a great season this year and I hope he keeps it up. Two huge sacks this week and last week as well, including a monster hit on Rivers
Side note: I want to include Charlie Batch. Even though he didn't play for Michigan, I watched him play while he was at Eastern Michigan and he was my favorite Lions quarterback when he played. At least, he's the most successful one we've had in recent memory.
This will be a great SuperBowl - I think it will be much closer than people think it is going to be.
I have been looking at some of the prospects for the top dual threat QB's from next year. And IMHO Devin Gardner will be next years Terrell Pryor. And by that I mean a long drawn out process with him winking at one school while courting another at an in home visit. It seems that he wants to play in a pro style offense. This screams to me that we'll have to do some serious convincing to get this kid to commit to us. It seems that RR's success is having a negative effect on the type of QB that would thrive in his offense. For whatever reason, they don't think that playing in this system will get them to the next level. Okay, so here is the first part of my two part question. And I am hoping that The Other Brian and TomVH can help me out on this one. What is the vibe that you guys get from top prospective dual threat QB's about Michian, particularly about the style of offense that we run? Because to me it seems that the overall perception has been a bit timid, shall we say. Possibly because they don't think that his offense doesn't develop them into pro prospects. And here is the second part of the two parter and trust me, I know this part is purely speculative, but do you guys think that if Pat White goes as a high draft pick that it changes some of their perceptions about RR's offense?
