“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

|2 days 13 hours ago||I really needed this to get me interested||
in football again. Welcome Mr. Cole (and nice threads).
|4 days 19 hours ago||Not Peppers fault.||
Only Carris LeVert could cover Funchess.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Actually, Funchess is really 6'10"||
so it just makes Peppers look small by comparison.

helps to develop good skill.

An even 6'0" without.
|6 days 10 hours ago||You are correct.||
Only Hatch will red shirt.

the tallest shoes.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well, I believe the quote||
and I like it too. Beilein wants guys who want to be here and so do I. Once a guy chooses some other school, it is good luck, good bye and move on.

Sean Higgens always makes that put back. Zack Novack always screams in the huddle. Denard Roninson always fumbles that first snap and then picks it up and runs past everybody.

Remember when OPs didn't get side tracked and high jacked?

I'm sorry, what was the question?
|1 week 6 days ago||Much like Seth,||
I found out about my father's death on the day he collapsed and died. My mother died 6 years later. She was in in the hospital surrounded by her children and grand children. It is the only time I have seen someone take their last breath. Maybe that is why her passing was even harder on me than my father's. In both cases, it is a deep sadness that gets better over time, but never fully goes away. Be thankful for all of the great memories.

Yea, another list.

(1) spotting talent that isn't obvious to others and (2) finding players that haven't yet peaked. The second point is most critical, I believe, because Beilein knows he can coach them up and the player will surpass other higher ranked players. As the article pointed out, some younger players dominate because they are more physically developed at a younger age.
As others have noted, let's also give credit to the players for doing the work and having the desire to improve. Burke, Stauskas and LeVert are examples of gym rats who were determined to be the best they could be. There have been others who had (have) potential, but haven't yet reached it (perhaps because they didn't have the burning desire to push themselves).
