|15 hours 17 min ago||as much fun as it was in AA||
the year before was an aerial precision Smart-Dong strike. I was watching at a bar in Annapolis after GT beat Navy by 70. went out to feed the meter and missed consecutive UW non-offensive TDs.
|2 days 11 hours ago||I always liked that||
i always thought numbers in the 90s were cool for tight ends. I wanted to wear one in hs but at the time we only had up to 89
|2 days 16 hours ago||id like to see him||
in BJ Askew's old single-back role. or maybe the way TB used to line up Alstott in their single-back sets. with Hayes or Norfleet as his Warrick Dunn, there is lots of versatility there. especially since there hasn't been much progress on finding a primary ball carrier, as mentioned above.
|2 days 17 hours ago||I agree re: the receivers||
I think they can be be a really special group. thats mostly why I think that re: downfield passing. the line may not be able to cover a 7 step drop, but a 5 step drop should be enough time for these guys to get separation 10+ yards downfield. and guys like Canteen and Norfleet (and i keep beating this drum but i really think Shallman can help here) underneath will definitely help that cause.
|2 days 17 hours ago||wonder if plays were being tipped||
not by alignment but by coach design. I realize this may not be totally relevant but my h.s. coaches (CC) used to do this all the time to put stress on us. the offense would run a play and the coaches would direct the 2nd team defense to exactly where it was going.
|2 days 17 hours ago||also, thumbs up for CC alums||
Shallman is going to be a legit weapon sooner than later, and im not surprised Godin is in the mix to start at 3T
|2 days 17 hours ago||so LG is the issue yes?||
Braden, Kalis, Miller, and Magnuson are 4 of the 5 that I would have hoped to win spots. I think Cole's starting has more to do beating out Bosch and other LG's since the coaches seem comfortable with Magnuson at either spot on the left. normally it would be exciting for a true FR to come in and take a spot from a "VHT" 3rd year player, but the collective performance suggests that it isnt this time.
|2 days 17 hours ago||im not sure about the WCO||
DG might make short drops, but with these big receivers I expect a more vertical passing game. kind of like Baltimore during their run to the SB.
|2 days 17 hours ago||dont know if it matters||
but longer frames are harder to build mass on to, so I would expect OL to develop mass more slowly than shorter DL. Taco is the same way...lots of room for muscle but I would guess the rate of gain would slower. then again I may be totally wrong lol
|3 days 6 hours ago||love 8 FTA||
that will be huge if it lasts
|3 days 13 hours ago||rebounding is mostly effort||
its hard to grab 11 rebounds against professional grown men. im actually more impressed with that than I am the scoring.
|6 days 16 hours ago||no shadier than OLSM||
at worst this is a lateral shade move
|6 days 16 hours ago||they wont miss Mark that much||
as long as treyvon green is available all year
|6 days 16 hours ago||treyvon green||
is very good
|1 week 16 hours ago||Green reminds me of Jon Dwyer||
Dwyer was our B-back in Paul Johnson's first two years. Great player with a lot of the attributes Green is mentioned as having, but his weight was a constant struggle for him.
|1 week 1 day ago||thanks.||
I was asking genuinely
|1 week 1 day ago||huh?||
on what grounds?
|1 week 3 days ago||I dont think that comes to pass||
id be shocked if Ross, Ryan, and Morgan dont play > 70% of available snaps, not counting Nickel and Dime situations
|1 week 3 days ago||well its playing 2 sets of odds||
youre right that the best players will play. but if the best LT is a true freshman, odds are that (1) he will struggle, and (2) the guys behind them are not very good yet. he may be special, and if he sticks, he may be a Freshman AA. im hoping for the second scenario, but in the generic situation the first scenario is more likely.
|1 week 3 days ago||not quite the same||
a true freshman RG is much less worrisome than a true freshman LT
|2 weeks 3 days ago||is this serious?||
because it sound idiotic
|2 weeks 3 days ago||agreed||
I really like it. The bumper piece itself is white because its a stock piece from the helmet manufacturer.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||why not?||
seems like good time management to me
|3 weeks 2 days ago||olsm's field hurts my eyes||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Stuart Schweigert||
Stu Schweigert also went to Saginaw Heritage and is actually a great player comparison. Schweigert was an "athlete" recruit and track star and eventually settled in at FS at Purdue. He played with Oakland for a few years but was an awesome college safety. Also beat Charles Rogers in the 100m state final.
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||Ron's Roadside is better||
and local to Ann Arbor
|4 weeks 2 days ago||he grew up in ATL||
and when it was time for him to go to college, Michigan was not on GT's level basketball-wise
|4 weeks 2 days ago||so frustrating||
he could have been great for us (GT) but he made some pretty terrible life choices. Talent was always there though.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||not sure about that||
meshing talents and personalities is just as much a part of coaching as drawing up plays and teaching skills.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||kinda nitpicky eh?||
considering that Michigan had the NPOY and 4 other future 1st rd picks.
Wisconsin has had 5 first rd draft picks *total* since 1980.
