|6 years 14 weeks ago||While on the subject of the Godfather||
Is Mike Hart a fair comparison to Sonny, a confident guy who wears his heart on his sleeve and backs up his words by beating up his little brother (or brother-in-law)? God I just hope this comparison is erroneous and he doesn't get shot.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||Well said.||
I think Lloyd has the perfect calm yet dangerous way of speaking to match that of Michael Corleone. He should deliver that exact message to Desmond.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||I'm with you all the way.||
I'm with you all the way. This is still Michigan and we are still fans. Go Blue
|6 years 14 weeks ago||Sort of random||
but this reminds me of that scene in the Godfather where Michael and Moe Greene are negotiating and Fredo takes sides with Moe Greene. Not that Desmond is really in any way like Fredo--he's far from weak and stupid, and if he's like any character from the Godfather that character would be Johnny Fontaine--but someone, I nominate Lloyd, needs to tell him privately never to take sides against the family again.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||He's just frustrated like the rest of us.||
I suspect his boner for Les Miles endures, and his disdainful feelings towards RichRod have resurfaced as a result of the frustrating season. He's just venting, albeit on a Columbus radio show with two former players for the other team who have made their allegiances clear. That makes me lose some respect for him, but he's still very much alive to me, although I suspect he's alive to you too and you're just being sarcastic.
|6 years 16 weeks ago||I'm just trying to consider||
I'm just trying to consider the circumstances. Look what happened to Carlos Brown. He was certainly highly touted coming in. Got some snaps as a true freshmen, showed promise as a sophmore, and has sort of fallen out of the discussion this year due to injury. He's never really done much despite his obvious talent. He's even considered a position switch. He's got the talent, but he's been bothered by injuries which have allowed other players to move on ahead of him and he hasn't quite caught up. At the rate he's going Michael Shaw could end up having a similar career ark. Or he could explode. Carlos Brown could still go off too. You're right, the best players play.
|6 years 16 weeks ago||That name||
Pearlie Graves is an awesome name, and we already have some great ones in this class. Fitzgerald Toussaint, DeWayne Peace, DeQuinta Jones, and of course the one to rule them all: Shavodrick Beaver. The potential for wordplay with that last one, sexual and not sexual, is through the roof. Do you realize that his first name can be roughly abbreviated so that his full name reads Shavd Beaver? I'll stop now.
|6 years 16 weeks ago||The Future of Michael Shaw||
At the start of the season I was nervous about our lack of experience at the skill positions, but at the same time excited to see what the new guys could do, especially because many of them were highly touted recruits. In particular I wnated to see McGuffie and Shaw because they are the kind of backs (smallish and lightning quick)that we do not often see at Michigan playing in an offense that we've never seen at Michigan. I've seen enough of McGuffie now to pass judgement and remain optimistic for the future: he's as quick and fast as we thought, has good vision that will only improve, good ball security, but needs to work on his strength in general so he can better shed tackles and pass protect. However, I do not feel I can do the same about Shaw. He's been an afterthought. We just haven't seen him play that much. (It's not good for him or Stonum that the AA News mislabeled his picture as the latter). This is of course due to injury and fumbling troubles that have buried him on the depth chart, but there is reason to believe that he will not remain there. From everything that we've heard about him he is just to talented. The few instances that he has gotten in the game his speed and quickness have been evident from his very first steps. But how much will we get to see him in the future? Certainly that depends on his own performance on and off the field, but the competition at the running back spot is only going to get tougher (which is ofcourse lovely for all the fans). We already have Minor, McGuffie, Brown, Grady, Cox (the random guy from CT who almost transfered), Mike Milano (just kidding). Next year we'll bring in three more, four if you count Gallon as an RB. So my question remains: how much will Shaw play going forward and to what degree will he maximize his enormous potential?
