Yeah, if Rodriguez were the coach, Hamler would have been offered a year ago. It will be interesting to see where he plays and what he does in college. Right now he's really tiny, but he and Ambry Thomas from Detroit King are two of the fastest players in the state.

No offense, but I don't really understand comments like this. We can win football games even if we don't get ___________ (in this case, Peoples-Jones). I think Peoples-Jones should be a high priority, but saying he's a "must get" sets us up for panic if he commits elsewhere.
|5 hours 54 min ago||Yeah, I have a post about it||
Yeah, I have a post about it on my site. There are a few names I know of, but none of the transfers are totally concrete yet. I also know of two guys who are probably going to take medicals.

I love me some James Ross, and I've liked him since high school. I wish he had redshirted. I'm not sure that he has been used/deployed properly, but I hope that D.J. Durkin does a good job of using his talents this year. He packs quite a punch for being undersized, and he reads plays faster than just about anyone. But if he gets caught flat-footed, he can get swallowed up by linemen.

That's just the way the numbering goes. Being directly across from a player on the O-line is an even number, starting from 0 (over the center), 2 (over the guard), etc. The odd numbers are the ones that are a little more difficult to learn, since they're not dispersed quite so uniformly.
|13 hours 36 min ago||"We absolutely gotta snag||
"We absolutely gotta snag some of, if not all of the top defenders in Michigan."
Not really. We just need good defensive players. It doesn't really matter whether they come from Michigan or not. The two defensive players who just got drafted were from Ohio. The current defender getting the most hype is from New Jersey. Joe Bolden, Willie Henry, and Chris Wormley are from Ohio, all of whom are getting some attention and predictions for "breakout" years.

The answer to the question:
The people in the video have great voices, it's an interesting arrangement, it's fun, it's energetic, etc. But they turned it into a Broadway tune, like it's "Rent" or "Wicked." The fight song as written by Louis Elbel was intended differently, and the great John Philip Sousa touted its greatness.

Peters averaged 18.7 points/game this year playing basketball.
Anyway, I did also read that he does not have a personal QB coach like a lot of young quarterbacks have these days, so he might be a bit of a late bloomer as he concentrates more on football, gets more coaching, etc.

Onwenu checked in recently at another camp at 341 lbs., I believe, so he's definitely got some weight to lose. But yeah, at his height (6'2"-ish), he would have to be a blob to be 360+.

It took me all of about three seconds to think of one, and I had to go back all the way...until February of this year:
Tyrone Wheatley, Jr.
|1 day 9 hours ago||a) Delonte Hollowell did not||
a) Delonte Hollowell did not run a 4.34. Pro day times are notoriously fast. IIRC, Raymon Taylor ran a 4.42 and Devin Funchess ran a 4.48 at Michigan's pro day. Do you really think all three of those guys are sub-4.5 players, especially after Funchess ran a 4.7 at the Combine?
b) Hoke *did* find a place on the field for Hollowell to do something. He was used on special teams coverage, and when he came in on defense, Hoke used him to allow touchdowns.
c) Hoke isn't coaching anywhere, as you know. But if I just made millions of dollars over four years and got fired, I might take a season off, too. I hope you don't actually think he couldn't find a job if he wanted one.

First of all, I said "generally." There are exceptions.

I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but Breshad Perriman - the Ravens' first round draft pick - is the son of Brett Perriman.

That's really not interesting enough to post three times.

I think this post was intended for MGoPeopleMagazine.com.
|2 days 49 min ago||I'm not sure if this is||
I'm not sure if this is accurate or not, but this link says Gray only returned 2 kickoffs throughout his entire college career. Meanwhile, he had 1,765 career rushing yards and 15 touchdowns as a running back.
|2 days 53 min ago||I don't know for sure, but I||
I don't know for sure, but I never heard of him getting reps at running back in practice. AFAIK, he was defense all the way.
|2 days 54 min ago||He was "undervalued" because||
He was "undervalued" because he was essentially incapable of making wow plays because he was athletically limited. I literally do not remember a single play from his career where he impressed because of his speed, athleticism, power, etc.
There's something to be said for being a solid fundamental player, but generally, solid fundamental players - who are undersized, lack athleticism, etc. - are not really NFL-caliber guys. He was a serviceable college player, and that's about where it ends.

Oh, okay. Sorry, guys. Let me amend my previous statement.
He did all that in the MAC *and* in one game against Purdue, the Big Ten's worst team.
|2 days 1 hour ago||No, not really. He was not a||
No, not really. He was not a highly rated recruit, he was small, and he basically didn't beat anyone else out for playing time for four consecutive years except Terry Richardson and Reon Dawson.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Ummm...probably the coach who||
Ummm...probably the coach who coached at Michigan last, which is why he's an undrafted free agent.
|2 days 1 hour ago||For a quick reference, I'm||
For a quick reference, I'm using Wikipedia:
In 1996, Dreisbach rebounded from his injury to beat out Brian Griese and sophomore Tom Brady as the Wolverines' starting quarterback. Dreisbach served as Michigan's starting quarterback for the first 11 games of the 1996 season, leading the team to an 8–3 record in those games. After tying a Michigan record with four touchdown passes in a 45–29 victory over Michigan State, he was selected as Michigan's Athlete of the Week. In 11 games during the 1996 season, Dreisbach completed 149 of 269 passes (55.4% completion percentage) for 2,025 yards, 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
In 12 games as a starter during the 1995 and 1996 seasons, Dreisbach led the Wolverines to a 12–4 record and completed 205 of 375 passes for 2,875 yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

I'm surprised that Hollowell has signed somewhere but still no news about Raymon Taylor.

Bold prediction: He doesn't stick. Unless you're Matt Cassel, you generally don't go from college backup to NFL player.

Does he get a paycheck for playing football? Yes.
That's my only point.
If you want to argue against someone who thinks Kirk Cousins is great, then look somewhere else. But that person's not me.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Urban Meyer's quarterbacks||
Urban Meyer's quarterbacks have not done a great deal in the NFL. Alex Smith was pretty much a bust until Jim Harbaugh got his hands on him. Tim Tebow had one mediocre season where he led the Broncos to the playoffs, and that's been the peak of his career. I wouldn't be surprised if NFL general managers/coaches look at Cardale Jones and decide to go elsewhere to solve their quarterback woes.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Kirk Cousins has been a||
Kirk Cousins has been a member of the Washington Redskins since 2012.
My conclusion is that he's a pro.
|2 days 7 hours ago||No, he didn't look terrible||
No, he didn't look terrible in the College Football Playoff, but that's not really the point because it wasn't against NFL defenders. Aside from that, I don't really see Cardale Jones being a quality NFL quarterback because (I know, I know) he seems like a system guy. It's roughly the same reason that Tim Tebow hasn't been able to lock down an NFL job.
