when USC was at its peak in the 00's they were unafraid to play freshmen if they were the best option, and they played a lot of them. I have to assume that's the message being conveyed.

his blocking in #8 was the best done by a Michigan player in well over a year

do you know what "bash" means?

because it seems to be the reality of the situation id say

Michigan fans all across the country now have to change their pants

im fairly confident that right now he is no lower than the second best player on the whole team.
|5 days 13 hours ago||what? lol||
you could tell all that from its 4 foot flight path?
|5 days 13 hours ago||dont understand why they appealed||
was it just to show him that they were doing their due diligence to get the waiver?
|1 week 7 hours ago||damn...missed that||
I think my brain couldnt compute that so it just disregarded it
|1 week 7 hours ago||LOL||
the two guys you named as true standouts are the 2 guys that did the least in the NFL out of that whole group.
|1 week 7 hours ago||cmon||
Fargas's leg wasnt the reason A-Train went for 1700 yards his sr year and won Off. ROY in the NFL.
|1 week 10 hours ago||uh||
Anthony Thomas and Chris Perry were definitely true standouts.
|1 week 10 hours ago||lol||
youre really moving the goalposts. you say 15 receptions makes him inexperienced, yet you assert he was behind 2 guys that had fewer receptions than Chesson combined. which in addition to being completely opposite your point at first, is in fact a downright lie.
|1 week 12 hours ago||its not that surprising||
young players who arent put in a position to succeed are going to give you that. in 2011, UM returned their entire line after rushing for 3000 yds at 5.58 ypc in 2010, and lost 0.4 off that in 2011, another 0.4 in 2012, and then 1.5 off that in 2013. the last offensive staff wasnt spectacular with talent and experience on the inside, why would it have been good with talent and youth on the inside?
|1 week 12 hours ago||huh?||
Henne was injured in the second game of the season. if DG gets injured in game 2, do you really think Morris riding pine for game 1 is going to have that much of an effect? all these terrible comparisons are not sound arguments for giving Morris worthless 4th qtr snaps.
|1 week 12 hours ago||thats a bad metric||
Chesson played important snaps in every game, and a 3rd receiver with a secure spot is basically a starter in modern football. the fact that he was less productive than Gallon and Funchess doesnt make him inexperienced. especially since he has shown such an affinity for the less glamorous parts of the position.
|1 week 13 hours ago||terrible comparison||
for one thing you are comparing Bellomy's 1st year in the program, to his 3rd. for another, DG wasnt even practicing at QB. yet he was still able to start, and win, the next 3 weeks. Shane Morris has been practicing with the QBs for 17 consecutive months, and will continue to do so in the future. him *not* playing mop up snaps, yet still being prepared if Devin goes down in the biggest divisional game of the year, are simultaneously possible.
|1 week 13 hours ago||he should have that anyways||
And he can still prepare for games the same way. In my mind, if he isnt needed, just dont put him into the game. Bellomy is in his 3rd year of the program, and healthy. I just dont see mop up duty as something that will help him improve so much as to negate the value of an extra year. Telling him he isnt going to close out blowups isnt the same thing as not preparing him for an injury to DG. If they need him, he's there. If not, they could just not put him in. It shouldnt affect his preparation either way.
|1 week 13 hours ago||and?||
11 guys had more than 20 TFL last year. you really think teams didnt base their whole offense around avoiding Kyle Van Noy when they played BYU? Every guy thats capable of doing that in the backfield gets planned around. "Running directly at Brandon Graham" wasnt exactly a common strategy vs Michigan, but he still made plays. All the great edge guys do. Ryan seems like one of them to me *shrug*
|1 week 14 hours ago||afoot? lol||
you are aware that implies someone other than you has the same thought, yes?
|1 week 14 hours ago||could very well be true.||
Its just harder to make his brand of big plays in more constrained space. seems like if they were going to base their entire defense around him, he would fit better in a Shawn Crable kind of way to get him behind the LOS. I have no doubt he will excel in the middle, but 25+ TFL from the outside actually seems reasonable. in the middle, the guys up front will need to keep him (or anyone else) moderately clean to maximize his havoc level.
|1 week 14 hours ago||for what?||
what is gained by using a year of eligibility for extended mop up duty? like when Henne went from 3rd to 1st after Gutierrez went down, Morris should be either starting or redshirting. if they need a starter, its obviously him > Bellomy...but otherwise, no.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Ryan at MLB||
I never really understood the idea behind that, and ive also never really believed that the coaches are committed to him on the inside. Im probably wrong, but I can see them sometimes lifting an end for Ryan, sliding Morgan over, and putting Bolden at WLB. LB and CB are easily the strongest groups on the whole team IMO, and Mattison needs to get creative to get as many of them on the field as they can.
|1 week 15 hours ago||I agree||
this seems like a depth chart team protocol thing. full practice x number of times to be listed 1st or something.
|1 week 15 hours ago||cmon||
|1 week 15 hours ago||Chesson counts imo||
he played enough last year to qualify as experienced, I think
|1 week 15 hours ago||Godin got a fair bit of praise||
Godin has gotten a fair bit of praise since spring.
|1 week 2 days ago||are blowout snaps vs ASU...||
...significant? Short of a major injury, there is is no reason to play Morris. If Gardner has to miss a full game or more, then I would understand. But Bellomy can clean up blowouts or little dings.
|1 week 5 days 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.
