"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Would be surprised if either of our lb's were looking around
|2 years 1 week ago||Define great||
Please define great with an example...it's easy to judge by our own rational, but by yours no one has been great other than kovacs
|2 years 16 weeks ago||I'm outside of Sao Paulo||
My iphone still has everything in English...
More importantly I'm worried about Lewan leaving early to, but I'm guessing Kali's might get a shot first.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||national recruit||
Its no a question whether or not he has an interest in Sparty, but whether sparty has an interest in him...you know they recruit nationally now!
|2 years 34 weeks ago||who cares||
Who cares how the O$U fans react, today is about a michigan win! Lets appreciate that, not the meltdown of our oppenent.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||TKovacs||
Kovacs looked like a 5 star recruit today, in the right spot, making the right plays...Herron might get most of the TV time, but Kovacs made the big plays.
To be honest I've never been a big fan of Kovacs, but today he made me a believer.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Dunn in Columbus||
Per TomVH, Dunn will be in Columbus Thursday or Friday and his Dad clarified he has not decommitted.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||never heard of him||
Part of that national recruiting approach Dantonio has since he had since MSU's 5th consecutive bowl game loss...
|3 years 9 weeks ago||tomorrow||
I plan on spending today making plans for tomorrow...
|3 years 23 weeks ago||title||
title is misleading, but only to someone who wanted to see a commitment post. I'll trust to great defensive coordinators to judge wether or not RJS is worthy of an offer this early in the process.
Plus you have to love to see him recruiting michigan players.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||TE||
I don't think many TE's were on Michigan's radar before Hoke.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I know you asked who would it||
I know you asked who would it be, but I think I'd rather say who deserves it...Novak!
|3 years 37 weeks ago||hands||
I think Hemingway has great hands and understanding of positioning for deep balls...as far as a burner he's not that guy, but his shiftiness is suprising. He's easily turning into one of my favorite receivers.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Bad joke||
If you watched the game on TV you might have noticed this...about 5 or 6 UMass players grew up UofM fans and had an opportunity to live their dream playing in Michigan stadium.
Would have meant more if we blown them out, but still entertaining.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Defense||
IMHO, what happened is that after Uconn and ND we had expectations...we thought our D was serviceable. We forgot about the actual condition of the D, starting RS Freshman, a walk-on and converted WR's. While this game wasn't our best showing, the sky isn't falling. I am concerned that the more games we play the easier it will be for other teams to find our holes...which are numerous.
With D. Rob I think we can be competitive in most of our games...but until we gain experience and get a defensive team which is mainly led by Jr and Sr we will have this uneasiness...unfortunately I don't see that happening this year.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||S. Brown||
How is S. Brown left out of the #2 defensive player from last years squad...he played well enough to get drafted...
As far as this year below is my top 5
1) martin - hard to argue this one
2) Van Bergen - it will help that he's playing on the DL with Martin. He's not the most talented player, but he'll never give up.
3) Roh - He was a good pash rusher as a true freshman, but to be considered to be in the top 2 he'd have to improve his pass rushing skills and be more of an all around player. Should help that our DL is solid this year.
4) Woolfork - He's a best player in the secondary, my only concern will be him against the #1 WR's on other teams...
5) Mouton? - Gets a litte sketchy here, this is more of a hope than reality...just depends if our LB's are allowed to attack or react.
|3 years 52 weeks ago||S. Brown||
I'm hoping he becomes the next S. Brown, lost for a bit, but once they found the right position for him he turned into one of our better players on D.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Vlad||
I know Vlads injury was over 2 years ago, but I was wondering if he is a 100%. I'm still a little confused as to why RR burned his RS last year knowing that his knee wasn't ready. I'm still optimistic that Vlad can become the player he was projected to be before blowing out his ACL...he was offered by some of the top schools in the country.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Turner - CB||
Turner will start out as a CB and depending on how Avery, Talbott and Christian develop will determine where he will play. He'll only be a RS freshman this year. The main problem with our secondary is the lack of upperclassmen, as has already been pointed out. I believe RR has been recruiting enough CB in hopes of improving the situation, in 2 years, but for now we can only hope that our current players 1 don't get injured and 2 improve from last year (Floyd and Woolfork).
Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'm sure someone will...but in the 3-3-5 cover skills aren't as important as diagnosing the play and being in the right position becuase of that a player such as Christian and Turner who may not have game changing speed can play CB and excel.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||The next Gold?||
great to see him get drafted after a good senior year...not really sure where he fits in the NFL. I guess Gold made it as a small LB, so could Brown.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||class change?||
Why do people think there will be 4-5 changes. I think RR has made a point to recruit guys who won't waiver on their commitment like last year going as far as not letting them commit until they visit UofM. I'm not saying there won't be a decommit, I just don't think it will be as prominent as last year.
It has also been clarified to Hankins that there is only one more spot. It seems as if RR is willing to take the best player available at a position of need (MLB, DL or OL) as can be seen by his most recent recruiting (Taylor, Black, Donnal...etc.)
I also believe that RR has realized how much each move he does is scrutinized, so he will refrain from having a Peace situation. Overall I think there will only be one to two more players added that we don't expect, depending on what happenes with Parker. Hopefully he does choose UofM over USC.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||internet rumor||
This seems like an internet rumor that UofM fans just seem way to happy to jump on, below are some points that were brought up on a MSU board:
In the past week.
-Dantonio went to his "Dream Team" ceremony and was with him most of the night, many pictures of them.
-Went to a Basketball game and sat next to Dantonio and I think Greg Jones. Was decked out in State gear.
-Don't remember what medium it was, but told the press (paraphrasing) that he is definitely going to Michigan State.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Magnus||
I guess it somewhat of a moot point since he's looking to move on, but I where he is on the depth chart is expected because of the aformentioned reasons.
Mainly my disappointment comes from the fact that in the last year more than any that I've known, there has been a lot of emphasis put on the fact that we don't have junior or senior players on the field and have a lot of younger players starting, which leads to part of our inept defense. If we want to turn it around players such as B. Smith need to stick around and develop. If people continue to transfer because they aren't on the 2 deep then we will have the same conversation about young players in 2 years.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Cassel||
How many Cassel's have they had though? For all the top recruits they've had you'd expect to hear about more than just 1. I wonder how many Cassel type players didn't develop because of lack of playing.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||USC safety recruiting||
Did anyone notice that in 2009 USC recruiting 4 safteys, the #2, #4, #5 & #6 safeties overall...I know they can recruit, but sometimes its just sick. This year they have the #1 & #2 WR's (per scout)
I'm guessing thats why some guys are looking away, there's a difference between competition and trying to beat out 1st round NFL picks every years. Guys who could be NFL players will never get a chance to develop because they won't see the field.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||1 year||
was he really expected to beat out Leach or Demens in his RS Freshman year in the first year at the position?
I'm still optimistice that by his junior year he develop into a starter, especially given the condition of our LB corp.
I'm also disappointed that 3 of our top 4 recruits (per scout) from the 2008 class have or are planning to transfer (Boo boo, Smith and McGuffie)
|4 years 31 weeks ago||B. Smith||
I don't see how he doesn't fit into Gerg's D? Can someone please explain it to me? As far as his athletic traits go he seems to have the skills to fit in any D as long as he's willing to move to the best position to fit his skill set. I think thats the issue. He sees himself as a safety and the coaches see him as a LB or Hybrid LB/S.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Hankins is not the same||
The only thing they have in common is being excited about their last visit and they are DL...after that their situations are completely different.
Big Will committed to UofM and then decided to take visits to other schools
Hankins had to wait to his senior year to get an offer.
Big Will was a consensus 5* and had early offers from everyone in the country
Hankins had some decent offers, but had to prove himself
Big Will has and always will be Blue.
Hankins is making his decision soon
If anything Big Will was like Marcus Hall...
|4 years 32 weeks ago||Cam Gordon||
As far as internet rumors go didn't Cam decid to move to D after seeing all the depth at WR?
I think I saw it on GBMW.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||TomVH||
TomVH should also be in that sentence...
