Ok, watching this film I get why I am not a scout. Dude looks vicious. He mauls kids (sure, who are probably two-thirds his size, but he seems tenacious). Seems relatively quick for a lineman his size. So is it his feet? His bend? Just too small of a sampling to see what he does on other plays?

PLEASE STOP THE RIDE I'D LIKE TO GET OFF NOW.

I'm fascinated by the WR recruiting. I know we are losing our two proven WRs after next year, so the plan may just be to bring in a boatload and let the cream rise to the top. Or maybe the coaches realize how fluid the WR commitments are and realize a few may slip away at the end. Or perhaps there is some unannounced attrition coming (obvious candidates are obvious)... and if that's the case I hope it is not for health reasons.

I applaud the board's quickness in updating the Depth Chart by Class page with the three recently reported early departures.

So much this.

I think a healthy Smith will be our #1 guy and will have a little more hop to his step, like we saw at the beginning of the year and the bowl game. Some might say he just had better vision at the end. That may be true, but I think he was just healthier.

I hear Mattison taught him how to do that dance.

... by the final score of 71-47
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Maryland says yeah, they're decent||
Dear Maryland, welcome to the Big10. Out of solidarity and as a welcoming gesture, we're trying to mimic your style. How'd we do?
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Not sure if serious...||
But it seems as though you are. Yeah, who wants to see Michigan football anymore? Especially, oh what's his name Denard or something? play his last game EVER for the good guys? Along with the rest of the seniors... Yes please.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Probably because he saw...||
... what a year without Kellen Moore was like. (Ok, ok, so they were good without him this year, but still. that type of talent is tough to replace.)
I'm with a previous poster, perhaps he's tired of never being able to bust through to the top echelon and decided he had a better chance to break through at a team in the SEC. As a coach, there's no better conference to prove yourself than the ESS EEE SEE.

Looks like the first game vs. Western is streaming on ESPN3.com as well (free).
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Hilarious||
I'll go play my vuvuzuela
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Beyond hilarious!||
This needs to be front-paged. I laughed my ass off!
|4 years 35 weeks ago||It's a huge decision...||
And one that needs to be made when 100% sure. The University of Michigan is an outstanding choice, and Wayne we of course hope you end up a Wolverine in the end!
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Welcome!||
Congratulations and welcome, Allen!
I am sure you will appreciate and respect the advice your dad has to give in regards to the demands of being at, and playing football at, Michigan. Soon it will be your own time to shine - we look forward to rooting for you in the Maize and Blue and to referring to you not as Mr. Gant's son, but as Allen Gant, our safety who is one heck of a football player.
Welcome, Allen, we're excited you chose to come to Ann Arbor!
|4 years 38 weeks ago||But...||
at least you'll get to watch a live Michigan game when they roll into town to play UConn in their return home and home. 2013 I think?
|4 years 40 weeks ago||Nose for the ball||
The thing that jumped out at me was his nose for the ball. The guy can quickly diagnose a play, and he gets to the ball carrier in a hurry regardless of who is in his way. Great, great get for the Maize and Blue.
|4 years 40 weeks ago||Remarkable||
Wow, they roared by the ACC and BigXII. The deal is especially remarkable considering:
Although as a West Cost native I am happy for the Pac 10-->12 and wouldn't mind some more pub for the league...
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Then you haven't heard Stokes compliment||
... he makes Fred Jackson sound like a Debbie Downer.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Want to see real, game pressure for kickers...||
... which we won't see until Fall.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Damnit, why Japan?||
This situation sucks so much. I keep thinking: why does it have to be Japan who is worrying about the event of a nuclear melt down? Haven't they suffered enough nuclear damage already?

Welcome to Michigan, Kellen, from a fanbase who is as excited as you are that you are blue!
You sir, are a BEAST. Keep up the hard work, and can't wait to see what you do on the field at the Big House.
|5 years 3 days ago||Awesome!!||
That is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. Wow.
Great find and post, thank you.
|5 years 6 days ago||Dunk||
He had a nice dunk in that game, too. It seemed more impressive on the highlights on ESPN, but there's a clip of him at the bottom of this link...:
|5 years 1 week ago||Holy s-bomb that picture is adorable||
Just had to throw that out there. Also, I'm in agreement with a poster above: you have to love guys who end up going to their dream school (*am knocking on wood that he goes Blue, of course*). The fact he had to battle adversity to get there only makes it sweeter.
Here's to hoping he chooses Michigan and that he has a fantastic career, both on the field and off.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Agree to disagree||
I'm in agreement with michgoblue. Texas, Cali, Ohio, Florida, Mars, any pipeline with schools that produde D1 talent is great with me. But I've loved watching the Pahokee kids play. And Odoms may fit into Hoke's style better than you/I think - Steve Smith is small(ish) and does just fine as an outside receiver in a pro-set offense. (/man-crush on Odoms.) And of course Pahokee has some bigger dudes, as Ash (DT) demonstrates...
Anyway, we can agree to disagree, but it's a non-issue since I'm sure all we really care about is that we want the men who we recruit to be thrilled to be attending Michigan. Our current team, who I think is expressing an amazing amount of solidarity, is showing that, as are our current recruits. (As am I, since I am originally from California and am thrilled to be here. Ha, it's just too bad I'm not a D-1 athlete, or else I'd recruit like Miller/Hayes and help to develop a Cali pipeline!).
