|1 week 4 days ago||Michigan will win 10+ games.||
Stout defense with playmaker types at every position. Tremendous skill potential. Talent all over the offense in general. A coach on the hot seat. A weak B1G. A chip on the shoulder and this is Michigan For God's Sake! Right on Desmond!
|1 week 4 days ago||Caris and Zak sure look good.||
I like what I've seen from the freshman wings also. (Kam, MAAR and Aubrey)
|1 week 6 days ago||Hmmmm.||
I feel like he misses lengthy time and comes back in mid November. ...
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That's fine by me.||
Doyle looks like a player.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Aubrey will be everywhere.||
I don't think he will be playing much 4 once Wilson is back and the 2 and 3 in Belein ' s offense are pretty much interchangeable. Aubrey may be a more natural 3 and that would bump Zak down to a 2. Regardless, Aubrey looks to be the top wing option off of the bench. MAAR is a combo guard that seems more like a ball handler than an off-guard. I expect solid defense from Doyle and Donnal. Both are 6ft6 and 240 pounds. Defense is all about effort and Doyle definitely looks like he gives % 110 on that end. Time will tell. MSU will develop Schilling and Costello and they will be formidable. Dawson will be a beast down there as well.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Star.||
It could legitimately be any one of the 4 honestly because all are projected starters. My money is on Levert or Irvin. If this team can stay together for 2 years I think another Final Four run is possible. The wing play on this team should be outstanding.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Great project.||
That must have taken some time to put together! Maybe the best 9 minutes of my week! Thank you.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This team will have great guard play.||
The season will hinge on how well the bigs develop and how many of the 6 freshman can become contributors. Doyle and Wilson will be relied on to help inside. This team appears to be one that will get better as the season goes on due to youth. If the bigs mature...Michigan could have another deep tourney run! Irvin looks great. Chatman looks as advertised. Walton looks lightning fast. Doyle looks to be a solid interior defender.
|3 weeks 21 hours ago||What a sight this is to see!||
So excited to see this kid in maize and blue! Hopefully we/him can catch a break and he can play this season. We might be able to get back to some #Manball.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||We have the best QB situation in the B1G.||
Shane-Bellomy-Speight all in line should Devin fail.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Glasgow was counted as a 3 star.||
Green will win the job and I believe Dawson is a guard.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I was on the fence about Bosch and Dawson.||
The other guard spot opposite of Kalis is defintely a toss up.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Lewis is really good.||
Probably too good to be a backup Nickel. I think he's our 3rd best corner and will fill in at both spots. We run 2 field corners so Stribling's size isn't really the deciding factor over Lewis. I really like Stribling's upside though. I haven't seen anything from Hollowell that suggests that he would play over Stribling or Lewis. Is he better than TR3 in your opinion?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I think Beyer is a bit small for SDE.||
Taco has ideal size and athleticism.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Not grabbing the pitchforks but...||
If this line cannot perform to an average to above average standard with this level of talent.....there is a problem with coaching. It's just that simple. Having 2 NFL tackles last season and being that abysmal was absolutely intolerable and inexcusable.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you Jesus!!!||
He is such a beast. Harris who?? Mikey is the man and I fell in love at first glance of his film. I'm on Bart Scott status now....I can't wait to watch him light it up!!!!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I like Duncan's scoring ability.||
At first glance i think there will he a substantial adjustment necessary pertaining to the speed and athleticism of the B1G. Duncan has a year to improve his athleticism and Camp Sanderson will likely help him immensely. As far a basketball player...he looks to have high IQ and a very natural stroke. You have to love 6ft7 at SG also. My only worry is the strength and athletic aspect. I think he will make gains in those areas in Ann Arbor. I don't see him as a replacement for a Jalen Coleman or any other elite SG. He is simply a good ball player that has fallen into coach B ' s lap and we and him are taking advantage of eachother. I think this works out for us nicely in the end.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||Should be okay.||
Kalis...Dawson...Magnuson....Glasgow...Kugler should all be ready to roll. Fox and Tully - Tillman also. These linemen are too talented to not be improved in my opinion. I don't think they will be elite...I just think they will hold their end this year.
|4 weeks 13 hours ago||DT was skipped on accident.||
We have a lot of versatility and by B1G play we should have a nice rotation with the group you mentioned. Poggi and Wormley could also bump down and play tackle in certain situations. I really like our Dline depth and versatility the more I think about it.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||My logic is....||
We are too good to lose to an "underdog" especially at home. That leaves 3 red-letter games. ND, MSU and Ohio. I don't see us losing all 3.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||We've got serious size.||
Our team speed remains to be measured but there are only a few teams that will really test that out. I'd love to see us get to the point where our DTs are sub 5.1....DEs sub 4.9.....LBS sub 4.7 and DBs sub 4.5. Not sure if we are there yet. Those are numbers that you can see on the field though. 11 hats on the ball in very quick fashion. The DL is what really stands out.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||Lewis and Gedeon definitely need mention.||
Lewis has been balling out since Spring practice. It will be interesting to see if come game time, they actually sit Blake down and give him the nod. I've heard some chatter about Blake to Nickel and Jabril to Free or Strong. That would put Jabril in a very cerebral spot year one. However this pans out, I think you will see some talent on the field in our secondary. I think the highest ceiling on any of our corners lies in Channing Stribling. He was baptized in Happy Valley last year but he has some speed and excellent size. Look for him to make a big push also!
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||Ill take 6ft6 235 at Corner!||
That would spark a revolutionary trend for sure. In all seriousness I think Clowney could actually play corner......
|4 weeks 19 hours ago||Agreed on coaching.||
I believe in Mattison. I think Nussmeier makes a huge difference this year. As long as Brady stays dialed in and keeps the damn headset on were good lol. In all seriousness Brady has to win this season. I think he has had some tough breaks in big games and this year the team will have his back. They will play for him.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I agree.||
At FSU we did this with Jimbo and it has paid extraordinary dividends. Hoke is not that old though so it would be hard pressed to "HC in waiting" Nussmeier. I'm really excited to see what he brings to the table this year. I think he will hold these young men accountable to the standard of the uniform. If that happens we may find our selves in the first college football playoff because there is nobody on the schedule that is a "mismatch". Go Blue!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||A couple of things.||
1. Nussmeier passes the eye and ear test for what your looking for in a young exuberant coach. His intensity and attention to detail is noticeable.
2. I worry that he will be targeted very quickly for a head coach position. His pedigree and his personality suggest that he will not be anyone's OC for very long. I hope he is at Michigan for a very long time but i think it's pretty apparent that he is going to be a commodity if he finds success in the next few years in Ann Arbor.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||He's a Buckeye.||
Give me Weber and watch me not bat an eye.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Myron is a standout person in general.||
I played with him at FSU and he was as serious about his studies as he was football. He missed an entire semester for study abroad in Oxford and carried a GPA north of 3.8 if I recall. He has been a blessing since returning to Tallahassee and is a tremendous representative of Florida State University. On top of being an obviously decorated scholar he is a pretty genuine dude. There are a few more like him but the college football world could use many.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Observation.||
This kid can ball. I'm not sure if he is as good as Jalen Coleman or some of our other 2015 options. ...but this kid can play basketball at a high level. His shot is pure and he could do damage at Michigan. He looks like a deadly pick and pop 3 man. His name is kind of awesome too.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Mike Weber will be a star.||
One look at this kid's film is convincing enough. I've said for 6 months that this kid needs to be our #1 target. He is a beast from our backyard. USC will be tempting but there is too much offered at Michigan to pass up for the unknown. Ronald Johnson and Nick Perry do come to mind but I think we land Weber and he will be Mike Hart 2.0 only with more speed. Gotta love what our RB group is shaping out to be. 2 5 stars and 2 four stars in the 4 deep....yikes. If we cannot rush for 2000 + yards with that group...we need to fire the whole damn staff and disband the football progran...jk. Absolutely love Mike Weber 's game. I hope he ddoesn't get too enamored with the southern California beauties haha.
