Saguaro is a pretty big high school, and there's quite a bit of talent in the Scottsdale area. Off the top of my head, I think there have been guys like Taylor Lewan, Craig Roh, Brett Hundley, Jalen Brown, Casey Tucker, Andrus Peat, Mark Andrews, and others from that area in the last 5 years or so. It's a pretty talent rich area right around Tempe/Scottsdale.

That's why camps don't mean anything for safeties. Nobody's going to put Nicholson on an island against a good wide receiver, but since all that they can really do without pads and without a full defense (or at least seven guys) out there, sometimes people will judge them by their poor man coverage skills. Those camps are useful for kids in some respects (competition, technique, etc.), but it's a clear advantage for receivers in one-on-ones and a clear advantage for defensive linemen in one-on-ones.

Considering your lack of knowledge about who Michigan is playing, perhaps you should remove the "we" from your question and simply ask where Michigan's team is playing. You are clearly not a part of the equation.

Luckily, not being lazy is usually on everyone's New Year's Resolution list.

You clearly haven't been visiting TTB enough. I'm offended.

I agree somewhat. It's not an ideal situation to have a gaping hole at safety. But I'm of the opinion that you put your best 11 athletes on the field (within reason). Courtney Avery wasn't one of the best 11 athletes, and he has never been as good as Raymon Taylor. Taylor's stronger, faster, and has better ball skills. He has some weaknesses, too, but to get the top 11 guys out there, Taylor > Stribling.

Yes. But I'm okay with it if the full set of teeth is hanging on a string around her neck.

Bullshit. I saw a call girl on "Mad Men" and she was fine as hell.

Coincidentally, Quad Bypass was the name of the play where John Navarre caught a touchdown against Minnesota.
I hope your dad recovers nicely.

If I'm going to blow a large wad of cash, it's going to be for the Rose Bowl.
Or a hooker.

If you want to fuck Borges, a bowl trip seems to be the perfect time. You know, being so far away from home and everything.
Bro's in different area codes.

Maybe you're just bad luck.
Since you're staying away this year, maybe Michigan will win.

I don't see how you bench a senior with two years of starting experience, who's tied for the team lead in tackles, and has 6 picks over the past two years for a kid who hasn't accomplished anything like Stribling or Thomas. I have nothing against those two guys, but experience is important at the safety positions.

I think Peppers *could* play safety, but I just don't see these coaches sticking him in there at safety from day one. I think he has to be on the field immediately at one position, and the thing that makes the most sense to me is moving someone like Raymon Taylor to safety to make room for Peppers and Countess to be on the field full-time.
The four guys who HAVE to be on the field as much as possible next year are:
Countess is the best corner, so I don't see him switching positions. Wilson is the only guy with experience at safety, so he has to be out there. That leaves Taylor - who's been starting for two years - and Peppers for the other two positions.
That leaves complementary guys like Stribling, Lewis, Clark (heheh...Lewis and Clark), and Thomas to mix in there.

Oh, snap! Take that, Ohio State! This guy seen you get your ass beat!

We're still recruiting two defensive backs from Cleveland (OH) Glenville: Marshon Lattimore and Erick Smith.
|21 hours 3 min ago||I really don't think they||
I really don't think they will. As long as they have the same coaching staff, they're just going to reload on defense. They might not have a First Team All-American ready to step in for Dennard, but there are going to be underclassmen from this year who improve to become stars. We said the same thing about MSU a couple years ago, and they've just plugged new guys in there.

In the 2013 class, 4 of the 6 early enrollees played this year. Dymonte Thomas, Kyle Bosch, Jake Butt, and Taco Charlton all played, while Logan Tuley-Tillman and Ross Douglas redshirted.

FWIW, I've never been very high on Westphal. I'm more concerned about Montae Nicholson to MSU.

If Harbaugh is too intense and he's burning bridges, do we necessarily want him coming to Ann Arbor? Hoke has built the program some good will.

It wasn't as violent of a hit. That's partly why Branch didn't get as much attention. Clowney's was two guys running straight into each other.

Exactly. I wish Michigan fans could just accept the fact that Vincent Smith got crushed on one of the hardest hits any of us have ever seen. The context makes no difference. As if it was a fair fight between Alan Branch and Anthony Morelli, but no Michigan fans are downplaying that hit.

I think they'll cross that bridge if/when they come to it. I kind of doubt that both would be on the same special teams unit at the same time. And if/when they become starters down the road, there's a good chance they'll be off most special teams, anyway.

Jason Forcier, that is.
|1 day 6 hours ago||I agree that the trend seems||
I agree that the trend seems to be that Michigan plays freshman linebackers, but at some point, that would seem like it has to stop. Cameron Gordon is the only linebacker that graduates, and unless there's attrition, you would think that McCray or Allen Gant can take some of his snaps and/or play special teams. Michigan has four good inside linebackers (Morgan, Ross, Gedeon, Bolden) plus Royce Jenkins-Stone, so if they burn Ferns's redshirt for special teams, that will be pretty frustrating.

Maybe, kinda, sorta. I really wish he could have redshirted in 2012. I don't like young safeties. He was decent this year and should be even better next year and the year after that.

It's slightly noteworthy when Michigan was his leader at one point.
