I like what I saw of him on defense in the video. Not much there to judge as a TE. Good motor, nose for the ball, wraps up well. I'd say he just needs time to get bigger.

Why is pro-style football considered outdated everywhere except the NFL? There's no one way to win football games. It's players and execution.

No. His You Raise Me Up banquet moment was his last maneuver. After that he had to win the bowl game to have a chance. He failed miserably.

Jim Harbaugh is not only the last guy ND fans want at Michigan. OSU and MSU fans feel the same way. They all love them some Rich Rodriguez the way I loved John Cooper and John L. Smith.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||I don't blame the uncertain||
I don't blame the uncertain coaching situation for the loss of Zettel. I blame the lack of coaching quality the past three years.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||I agree Fhshockey, but 3||
I agree Fhshockey, but 3 years of terrible defense and coaching uncertainty had to play a role in the decision for a kid whose whole family were Michigan fans.

Three years has been enough.

Two thumbs up, Nate.

Could be RichRod's soft landing spot. He could go back to dominating the Big East!

I don't. I like to speak the truth and watch the little girls play follow the leader.

Give him an extension...if you want to perpetuate the problems. May as well elevate Tony Gibson to DC to make the horror complete.

I hope Zettel doesn't care about winning or playing on a competent defense.

His dad played for Michigan not MSU.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Talking him out of it is the||
Talking him out of it is the best thing he can do for his kid. You don't want quitting to be a pattern in life. Tate also doesn't have Ryan Mallett type talent where he can transfer and start just about anywhere.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Carvin Johnson was the player||
Carvin Johnson was the player I was most curious/anxious to see coming in, and it sounds like he won't disappoint. What got me was that his team lost the state championship game like 34-0, and Carvin was still the game MVP. Wow!

Smith sounds like a guy who needs more angry e-mails.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||I was really ticked a couple||
I was really ticked a couple of years ago when Blair White from MSU was carving up our secondary. A WALK-ON? But it turns out he was a good player. You just never know. Don't forget that Rich Rod was a walk-on, so I imagine he's not afraid to start one.

I just hope he's not the next Carlos Brown - often injured.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Hate to see anyone leave, but||
Hate to see anyone leave, but it's a fairly deep position with similar looking players. Sam Webb keeps saying how great the talent coming out of Ohio next year is and that OSU will not have many scholarships to offer. It would be nice to have more schollys available to fill out the roster with players at positions of greater need.

I've heard many an athlete say, "I'd rather be lucky than good." Take a victory any way you can get it.

Seems too coincidental that the players with blue helmets were also wearing red jerseys.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||If Elliott were to commit,||
If Elliott were to commit, would there be no room for Cyrus Hobbi or Chris Bryant? They both sounded like more highly sought after recruits. There is something to be said, however, for the kid's enthusiasm. You want kids who really want to be Wolverines.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Sam Webb wrote a recent||
Sam Webb wrote a recent article in the Detroit News about Grant. It's still between OSU, MSU, and Michigan. He said U-M will definitely get a visit.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Really? Turner was supposedly||
Really? Turner was supposedly one of the best players in talent-rich Ohio, and he can't win a spot on perhaps the worst defense in the history of U-M football two years in a row. You blame that on the head coach?
|4 years 29 weeks ago||One thing I think we can||
One thing I think we can never overlook is the fact that Rich Rodriguez was a walk-on. He just can't see giving a job to an underachieving 4-5 star guy when a less heralded player is busting his ass to win a job. He was shaped by his own experience as a player.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||I don't see Nick Saban as a||
I don't see Nick Saban as a guy who is easy on his players. Having grown up with Bo, I'd rather have a team full of hard-ass overachievers who wins 8-9 games per year than a bunch of egotistical star players who get placated and win 10-12 games a year and show up on police blotters. But that's just me. I'm an old-school hard-ass myself.

Poor Dantonio. He must be tired of hearing about Mike Barwis:

Didn't expect that with his mom being such a Wolverine fan. Probably hurt by negative recruiting and continued bullcrap media reports about Rich at West Virginia.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||I'm extremely nervous about||
I'm extremely nervous about Zettel. The longer it goes, the less confident I feel. I hope he isn't waiting to see a winning season because I still think the team is a year away. I'm also not satisfied that Brandon is as supportive of coach Rodriguez as he has been publicly. I don't know that Rich keeps his job if the team wins 5-6 games, and then recruiting would become chaotic.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||The third Saturday in||
The third Saturday in November, 1969. I was 9 yrs. old. My parents left me alone in the house. I was flipping through the channels on the new Zenith color television. I saw two teams playing football - one had really cool helmets. I watched with interest as some kid named Garvie Craw scored a touchdown against what was supposed to be an unbeatable team coached by some fat man in a short sleeve shirt. It changed my life.
