Also, it's impossible to guage how important OG will be in that class. If Slaton signs this year he will join Bredeson and Onwenu plus the guys in the current class who are considered as possible OGs. It's also impossible to tell whether there will be other OGs who might move ahead of JI in desirability.

Thank you for the explanation. It makes sense.

Isn't Magnuson more at risk of losing the OT start? If the coaches think Magnuson is a better OT than Newsome, then Magnuson should be at LT (unless Shane Morris is going to be the starting QB). I think the coaches' expectation is that Newsome will be better than Magnuson by the end of the season. They probably think Newsome will be close by the end of the cupcakes. If/when Bredeson pushes into the starting lineup Magnuson will be likely to displace one of the guards.

Smith looked great after 4 weeks of rest. Unfortunately, they don't have bye months during the regular season. He only had 180 carries during the season - an average of 14 per game so it's hard to lighten his workload. On the other hand, he really did appear to show great improvement in reading his blocks and finding holes. Maybe that will save his body a bit.
I'm optimistic that Isaac will prove to be the player we expected when we recruited him. That change up will be difficult for opponents to handle.

This is why I think they will be the 2nd string. They'll be the guys who play S extensively against Hawaii and the other early cupcakes. Not Peppers and Clark who are guys you move if there is an injury to the starters.

Agreed. If this is remotely true, we'll win the championship.

Will Perry's "The Wolverines" is a great overview of the program from the beginning until 1974 when it was published. Also, if you're interested in the Bo era look at Jon Falk's books.

You're changing the debate from who is a better (or "as good") a coach to who has had more success. It isn't surprising that Harbaugh didn't win national championships at San Diego and Stanford (which was 1-11 when Harbaugh arrived). There are too many variables to make a meaningful, direct comparison but they are comparable.

I can understand if the RR/Hoke years were so brutal they caused you to forget Carlos Brown, Daryl Stonum and James Rogers, but how can you forget Tyrone Wheatley, Braylon Edwards and Mercury Hayes?

If the coaches think Magnuson is better (or at least has more upside) than Newsome, I think Magnuson would be at LT - unless Shane Morris is going to be starting.

So, Bredeson starts at LT, Newsome moves to RT, Magnuson moves to Guard?

Bredeson won't redshirt.
1. He needs to start next year. He (and, therefore, the OL) will be a lot better if he has some experience.
2. Drevno isn't afraid to play freshmen on the OL. At USC he started 3 of them one year.
3. Eligibility for a 5th year is worthless if a player decides to go pro after 3 or 4 years.
4. Experienced depth on the OL will probably be a minor concern in 2020 after Harbaugh has recruited full classes in 2017 - 2019. Wilson, Slaton and Ruiz will be redshirt juniors or seniors that year - if they haven't turned pro.

If he starts I think it will be at OT and Magnuson will move to OG and replace Kalis or Braden.

He didn't say the O takes a step back, he said we should step back and take a realistic look at the O.
There are significant concerns about the O. DeVeon Smith looked good in the bowl game after a month of recovery, but he wasn't great at the end of the regular season when he carried just 180 times in 13 games. It's hard to rest a guy who's averaging fewer than 15 carries per game. We're just hoping that Isaac and Johnson (or someone else) will step up.
People who think an OL is great just because it has 3 5th year seniors are fools. Those three haven't yet lived up to expectations. Newsome will probably be great, but not necessarily in his first year as a starter.
Personally, I have no doubt that our QB will be fine after the 3 warm up games, but it is a fact that we don't know who the QB will be and how he will perform. If you consider the trouble OSU had last year settling on a QB, it's easy to understand why some people have concerns about the position.

Dantonio did build his team at a time when "Michigan Men" were stabbing RR (and the program) in the back.
Not sure why you disagree with him when you agree with him.
