“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.”

yeah he played a lot of TE in hs at about 250 lbs, as well as C for the basketball team. He has added some serious mass.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Jared Veldheer!||
holy shit, that guy went to my hs, Forest Hills Northern. I had no idea he had developed into that kind of player! He's a couple years older than me so I never played with him, but word at the time was that he denied a preferred walk-on spot at ND despite them being the only d1 school to show interest.
Obviously, I hope he has a long and illustrious nfl career :)
|4 years 25 weeks ago||haha||
haha right, for whatever reason Gerg feels that the strong side safety should roam deep, and the weak side should be up in run support.
Possibly/probably because the SLB (stevie brown this year) in our system functions closely to what the SS would do and covers the area the SS normally would, and so our actual SS plays deep.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||SS vs FS||
Strong Safety lines up on the strong side of the offense (TE side if they use a TE), free safety on the weak side. So, generally, but not necessarily, the SS does more run support and the FS more pass coverage.
In our defense the SS still lines up on the strong side and the FS on the weak, we just reverse their roles.

I feel bad for Cissoko, but he made this bed, so for now he's gotta sleep in it.
We should all pray that he gets his life back on track.

Really? Negged for hoping a kid is here playing football and getting a Michigan education?
|4 years 27 weeks ago||haha great. I'd start that||
haha great. I'd start that thread about the keys and claw now, but it seems (based on the negs) that the current board opinion of me is quite low (down from the neutrality of being unknown) and so it would be met with contempt, so perhaps another day, once this has blown over :p

Let's hope this means he'll be here next year, playing football and getting a great education.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Thank you for your constructive criticism||
Of this I was unaware; I don't read the threads that look useless, as most of the "don't rush the court" threads did. This one I came to by happenstance and couldn't believe the tone coming to The Impaler, who I've seen to be a generally quality poster in my time viewing the board.
Though, I still can't believe I got negged for advocating classy behavior :/
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Yeah, I had to do pretty well||
Yeah, I had to do pretty well to get into UofM. Transferring here from a Community College is, unsurprisingly, competitive.
The point is, you can be LOUD and INTIMIDATING, while maintaining the CLASS that Michigan fans have been known for.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Fair Point||
Fair point AK, I'm not so much responding to the OP as I am the commentors, but I think we could all use this to reevaluate our behavior as fans.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Not to be condescending, but||
Both your logic and your reading comprehension skills needs work.
You sat near the student section? I sat IN the student section, and was hoarse from saturday after the game until the next saturday, because I enjoy yelling at outrageous volumes for my team.
That doesn't change the fact that intimidation from jingling keys is laughable, and the claw just looks ridiculous.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Constructive Criticism||
First of all, thank you MadtownMaize for mindlessly bringing penis-size humor into the thread; God knows it was necessary and relevant.
Secondly, as Michigan fans, maybe instead of neg-banging everyone who tells us something we don't like, we should take to heart what's being said. Lately, we really have acted like a fickle fan base.
In football we've been spoiled and cannot deal with adversity (not that we could when we were good- 2007 Oregon game, the crowd applauded Chad Henne injuring his shoulder), and in basketball we are so starved for something good that we seem desperate.
Rather than crucify the guy, why not think about what he's said and use it constructively. Let's realize we won't be perfect nor disastrous forever, and let's deal with both ups and downs with class.
On another note, as Vlad points out, the jinglin the keys on third down is silly and not only un-intimidating, but probably anti-intimidating. Same goes for that Claw bs that the Daily sponsors.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||I'm sorry||
I just can't take anyone who thinks a 14 team conference is a good idea seriously.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||The big ten's recent bowl||
The big ten's recent bowl record is probably a little skewed because it's been Big 10 #4 playing another conferences #3, big ten #3 playing another conferences #2, etc...
Still though, we've looked pretty bad.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||I don't care what color his||
I don't care what color his skin is or how he's rated, that boy can play. That's the type of player you want on your team; he's fast, he's tough, and he's not so small that it will be a problem at the college level.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Burn it, obviously.||
Burn it, obviously.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||Except that Mouton and Brown||
Except that Mouton and Brown are former safeties, and Ezeh was predominantly a high school running back.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||"Actually, given that this||
"Actually, given that this year's wins against Notre Dame and Indiana came within the closing minutes, the 5-7 Wolverines could easily have repeated last season's dismal record."
Gotta love how he fails to mention the Overtime loss to michigan state, and the loss to bcs bound Iowa by 2.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Only because we're so used to||
Only because we're so used to seeing bullshit 40 times.
Also, there are many more important things than being able to run fast in a straight line for 40 yards, without pads on.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Running really fast in a||
Running really fast in a straight line doesnt make you a good football player.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||He's been playing||
He's been playing... didn't he score during the bowling green loss friday? I seem to remember him getting a nice one in over the bg goalie's left shoulder.
whoops, someone beat me to it.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Dumb or a liar?||
"the football program failed to keep the required practice logs"
This is a lie; is this libel?
|4 years 38 weeks ago||When your team gives up over||
When your team gives up over 300 yards on the ground, the middle linebacker probably didn't play that well.
But, I wasn't paying much attention to him during the game, and the coaches said they graded him highly, so it's possible.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||No coach would sacrifice on||
No coach would sacrifice on the field success to appease high school recruits.
