Someone who recalls better than I, what kind of role did Griff Whalen play while at Stanford? Strictly an outside receiver? He was an ahtletic, well-built, HS QB who switched positions for Harbaugh. He is a touch smaller at 5'11''/200 lbs.

If my gym offered a wedding reception dance class, I'd be in amazing shape.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Watched these||
Watched these yesterday...it's 28 minutes of touchdowns and it shows maybe 6 opponents?
I grew up in the Toledo area and am just a few years younger than Woodson, every saturday morning I would flip to the Fremont Ross box score in the Blade to see what he did the night before. I believe he scored 6 touchdowns in a game once...6 different ways.
Cool Starry Bra:
I played baseball with a guy who was a sophmore when Woodson was a senoir. He showed us that season's highlight tape once and it was a joke. The above video is a small taste of how dominant he was.

|16 weeks 4 days ago||He seems to be careening||
He seems to be careening towards, if I may use a baseball analogy, being a thrower and never developing into a pitcher. Like others though, I think under the current staff there is still plenty of time to see him progress and become a good player.

Sounds like the in-home visit did not, um, go well...someone will inevitably post the tweets here detailing the visit.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||I'm glad we are playing them again||
I am glad they scheduled it again. Does UM want to allow App St. to be the only team they have a losing record to? 2007 will never cease to exist, tomorrow's game being scheduled or not. I'd prefer my most recent memory of them to be a good beating in the season opener of what turns out to be an incredible season.
Also, App St. came in and beat us, they deserve to be scheduled again...refusing to schedule them again, to me, is chicken shit and disrespectful.
Tomorrow's gonna be a fun day as we begin to see the fruits of the past few recruiting classes begin paying off.

|1 year 18 weeks ago||Since the Summer of '79||
Since the summer of 1979, I've managed to put on over 200 lbs. Not all good weight either.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||My guess?||
A combination of a few or all of the following:
1) both Smith and Green played as freshman, maybe they thought Smith would possibly redshirt as they developed their initial recruiting plan for 2014
2) Drake Johnson injury, haven't heard anything...so those in the know, is it a possible career ender?
3) Hand choosing bama opened up a spot in the class (I'll leave this here, even after realizing that Pallante basically took this spot)
4) Someone buried on the depth chart is transferring (I'm not saying that's the case, just maybe possible, thus changing their strategy for '14 at the RB position

No details in the brief blurb, one can speculate it would allow him the time to take in his son's college games? Granted, his son won't be playing until 2017 at the earliest probably.

|1 year 45 weeks ago||So in 2015...||
In 2015 our WR Corps will look like this:
RS JR's - Darboh & Chesson
So - Drake Harris
Fr - George Campbell
Well that won't suck...
...ut damn, was looking forward to seeing him play this year. Feel bad for the kid as he's worked hard and earned the right to play.
In my psuedo-panic of "who can step up?", I almost forgot about Funchess and what he brings to the table as a pass catcher. So, "nothing is fucked, you're being very undude..."

May want to post this in it's own. Great find.
While one can't take much from a few clips, it didn't look like Green was carrying a bunch of bad weight as some had feared after hearing he came in at 235. Other than that, just great to see football and great to see Shane throw a laser.

Like the top picture, but the Shamrock on the shoulder is way too big and the helmets should just be gold.

It's only about 2 seconds of video, but you start to understand why Gallon is so good. He sets up the defender for a move BEFORE he has caught the ball, makes the catch, puts the ball in his outside arm so he can stiff arm the other oncoming guy and walks in. Just great instincts and awareness, but zero thinkng and just reacting.
Don't want to read too much into the clips of Devin, but he does seem to have a better arm slot in the clips from over the winter vs. from the season...also seems to get his left shoulder closed more on some of those deep balls vs. the one against Iowa and the one to Dileo against Minn.
Gardner is going to have a monster year.

If I'm not mistaken, that's Shane on the far left of the group photo? He looks like he's spent a lot of time in the weight room, combined with fully recovering from mono and has physically prepared himself to see the field this year (like everyone else, I hope he can redshirt though).
EDIT: well, I think I'm mistaken now that I actually click the photo to see the larger version.
Godin looks large.

Can we assume all Freshman have arrived at this point? Or only ones that are taking a class over the summer?
|2 years 4 days ago||yeah, those first few plays||
yeah, those first few plays certainly felt like watching Ryan. Couldn't recall how big he was when he came in and didn't know if Furbush had the type of frame that would keep in the SLB range or had room for 35 lbs.
Will be interesting to see how the class unfolds the rest of the way and where exactly it ends up in terms of numbers.
|2 years 4 days ago||I'm no film guru and I look||
I'm no film guru and I look forward to input from the more knowledgable posters, but at a minimum looks like a big kid with great straight line speed for his size. Rivals/Scout seem to agree he is around 230...any chance this kid grows into a wde?
Welcome aboard Noah!

I thought Hernandez looked familiar. That was him in the opening scene of 'The Last Boy Scout', yes?

It's actually a "crunch-enhancer". A non-nutritive cereal varnish that's semi-permiable. It's not osmotic. What it does, is it coats and seals the leaf, prevents the dressing from penetrating it.

Will be interesting to see if he is in the rotation as a starter or if he plays center field with the possiblity of a role as a closer as well (which I've read is possible). He's a hell of a hitter and outfielder. Great kid and good for him and his family for doing their homework.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Saw him play a hoops game||
Saw him play a hoops game this year and he had a "quiet" 33, if that's possible. Great athlete who is going to get drafted out of high school. A friend of a friend is the girl's hoops coach at his high school and said his family has been diligent in doing their research in terms of what pick/how much $ would make it a smart decision to sign rather than attend Michigan. Here's to hoping he gets to enjoy at least 3 years at UM before moving on to the pros.
