I never said any of them have been studs, but that's a far cry from being "shit."
I would say Jourdan Lewis, Thomas Gordon, and William Campbell have all been pretty solid. Lewis has a chance to be very good. There are some more guys going back lots of years, and there are some guys currently on the roster who haven't reached their upperclassman years (Dawson, Hill, etc.) out of Cass Tech.

First of all, you're wrong.
Second of all, you're being overly harsh.

It wasn't that funny.
|2 hours 52 min ago||A 5'11", 220 lb. defensive||
A 5'11", 220 lb. defensive end not known for his speed is probably not ideal...
|3 hours 10 min ago||He's blitzing on a lot of||
He's blitzing on a lot of them. Not all of them. Yes, you can make up for being a little slower if you are quick at reading the play, but I just don't think it's ideal in today's game. There are too many spread teams who put their guys in space, and the slow defenders can't keep up.

If he does, it hasn't been reported.
|3 hours 24 min ago||He could be. He played it in||
He could be. He played it in high school, and Michigan missed out on Reagan Williams.
|3 hours 44 min ago||Yeah, I like Ojemudia better,||
Yeah, I like Ojemudia better, too, although he's farther away from playing size than Oliver. Ojemudia is about 6'2", 190.
|3 hours 45 min ago||I think Cass Tech is sending||
I think Cass Tech is sending him on blitz after blitz. I wouldn't take too much away from him attacking the line of scrimmage like he does, other than the fact that he's not tentative when it comes to contact.

AFAIK, there are four - Adams, Burnett, Jefferson, and Oliver.
|3 hours 46 min ago||He's short, yes.||
He's short, yes.
|3 hours 48 min ago||I don't have any info from||
I don't have any info from Ferns's end, but I think there were two factors that played into his situation. First is that Michigan wasn't recruiting his younger brother. Second is that Michael was buried on the depth chart/low man on the totem pole, behind the other three freshman linebackers.
|3 hours 51 min ago||Not sure if he's at 0%, but||
Not sure if he's at 0%, but they're different kinds of players, anyway. Oliver is an inside linebacker all the way, whereas Roquan Smith is a weakside/outside type of guy.

I don't think "dearth" is the word you wanted.
|3 hours 53 min ago||I think he's slow but a heavy||
I think he's slow but a heavy hitter. I'm not super enthused about the prospects of getting a guy like him, but I also don't like the idea of banking scholarships.

I'm sure Singletary (and other coaches) are aware of all the significant prospects within the state.

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

You mean when he could recruit full-time while the actual coaching staff was coaching the team? Imagine that...
|5 hours 13 min ago||I'm sorry, but I REALLY don't||
I'm sorry, but I REALLY don't think you commit four years of a football scholarship to a kid like Markel Bush. If he's worth an offer, then there are a million kids out there worth offers. I've watched his highlight film, and I don't think he would ever step on the field. He's not quick, he's not fast, he's not overly physical, he doesn't have great hips... He's just a guy.

Here are some names I threw out on TTB a few days ago:

That's fine. It doesn't show on the football field, in my opinion.
|5 hours 35 min ago||I think a lot of us felt the||
I think a lot of us felt the same way about Gedeon. He would disappear for stretches of the game/season for no apparent reason. I'll grant that he was playing behind a pretty good LB in the form of Jake Ryan, but there should have been some sort of three-man rotation with Ryan, Bolden, and Gedeon each getting time.

Comming? Is that slang for "communicating?"
|5 hours 43 min ago||I would say Wile was also an||
I would say Wile was also an impact late addition. Not a great kicker/punter, but he was a starter in all three phases of the kicking game. Heitzman also got a fair amount of playing time, although he too wasn't great. So that' 4/10 guys who played a fair amount. Only 6/10 Rodriguez recruits were in the same boat.
|8 hours 9 min ago||So, in other words, the hit||
So, in other words, the hit rate was pretty average.
|8 hours 42 min ago||The issue is that Harbaugh||
The issue is that Harbaugh has been going up against heavy-ish hitters for a lot of prospects. We'll see how things shake out, but Michigan probably needs to go after Indiana, Purdue, MAC schools, etc. to fill out a couple of these spots.
|17 hours 7 min ago||Nah. It won't be that bad, as||
Nah. It won't be that bad, as long as the coaches keep players around. This is such a small class, anyway, that the overall effect will not be that large if we miss out on a couple guys. The roster is well-stocked.
|17 hours 13 min ago||Exactly. That type of thing||
Exactly. That type of thing happens all the time. In fact, similar things arguably happened three times in the last decade - Steve Threet, Nick Sheridan, and Chad Henne.
Bellomy was tossed in there. He was bad.
He was also tossed in a game as a redshirt junior. And he was bad.
He's just not cut out to be a Michigan quarterback, and it doesn't matter whether he's a redshirt freshman or a redshirt junior.
Anyway, this is all missing the point of the thread, I guess, which is to wish Bellomy well wherever he ends up.
|1 day 4 hours ago||"No QB should have been||
"No QB should have been thrust into the situation he was when Denard went down in that game against Nebraska."
So...ummm...who exactly should enter the game when the starting quarterback gets hurt? The punter? The backup left guard? Should the game just get postponed until the starter heals?
|1 day 4 hours ago||Just like Justice Hayes, this||
Just like Justice Hayes, this is for the best for both parties. Bellomy couldn't get the job done at this level, but unlike Hayes, Bellomy wouldn't really even have a role. He's not an old veteran who's familiar with the offense, because the offense is new. And he can't fill any other roles. It's best that Michigan gets an open roster spot and that Bellomy finds somewhere he can actually play. After watching him at Michigan, I think he'll have to drop down to FCS or even D-II to get on the field.
