I think ojemudia can have a big year. The interior of our dline is going to be really good and this should get him some favorable match ups rushing the edge.

This draft does seem heavy on running backs, the kid out of Indiana could look pretty good in Kelly's O.

Best part of this blog by far. Nothing beats discussions on Oline footwork.

Your disappointed that a RS freshman didn't break out last year? I know we are not used to having depth, but come on when you have a team that has depth, highly rated guys usually break out their junior and senior years, unless they are just that much better then the guys ahead of them. Welcome to having quality depth it's a good thing we didn't have to play a RS freshman.

Also do you think our guards are athletic enough to pull ant trap. Personally I'd rather watch a great trap block more than just about anything, but I just don't know if our guards can pull it off. The oline seemed to really block the zone scheme very well after the MSU game, along with getting a healthy drake Johnson who seemed better at the one cut and get upfield then green or smith.

Which RB do you think would benefit the most switching to man style blocking?

If death meant going on to the NFL, then yes talent died at UM under Carr.

How can you tell how hard a guy is "hitting" when they aren't in pads yet? This type of stuff is said every offseason, because are you gonna go into an interview and say man this year we are really taking a step back and really not hitting guys as hard. No, it's sports psychology 101 right now your team is always the best, fatest, strongest, and this offseason we worked harder than ever.

I think they were refs from the sun belt, or some other small conference that never used replay.

I think it would be interesting if you went back and showed these rankings compared to the players the past 7 years or so.

i think Darboh can be a very effective possession type reciever, he is a chains mover kind of guy like a Jason Avant. Chesson to be seems like a Breaston type guy, who is great when he isn't the number 1 reciever. We need someone who can attack the defense deep and force the safeties to play the deep portion of the field, and my hope is Harris or Ways can accomplish that.
|1 week 1 day ago||I see your point, but he also||
I see your point, but he also might become our best deep threat, and I think besides QB, the WR group is the most "open" position group on the team.

Who is your big surprise?
Mine would be Peppers moving back to CB, and Moe Ways or Harris starting at reciever.
|1 week 3 days ago||So they gave up 4 potential||
So they gave up 4 potential starters for a guy who can't keep his job, plus they picked Stanton later in the same daft, that sounds like some lions type draft.
|1 week 3 days ago||Wow so you want him to switch||
Wow so you want him to switch back to a position that requires more effort and you definitely can't take plays off at TE you'll get you ass handed to you by dline. Your assessment makes no sense.

He was out at IMG.

Your right it was late in that game and I believe he was either blocking or receiving a bubble screen. We were incredibly young especially on offense and guys needed the experience of running the offense. It really wouldn't surprise me if next season And Harbaugh was in a similar situation he would do the same thing.

I believe he also was the second leading receiver in the big ten.

So your saying our offense by the ND game knew all the plays and didn't need to actually be run by the guys who were supposed to play all year. Injuries happen when you play football, it's part of the game. Does it suck yes, but to blame the coaches for keeping guys in who obviously needed to learn how to run the offense is stupid.

Well I agree that people who commit abuse deserve everything that comes their way in prison. This is not a case of abuse. This is one incident, and while he could go down the road of abuseing women, he also could learn from this and not go down that road.
I feel bad for Frank, I also feel bad for the girl (for obvious reasons). If this was a situation between two guys in which a verbal argument was escalated to violence by throwing objects, then frank would be considered the victim. But the reality of the situation is it was between a man and women, and he didn't need to continue the escalation, and he should be punished. She also should get charged.

Let's see on defense I'll add Pipkins, Taco, Gedeon, Hill, and Morgan/Bolden (FA) to the list of guys I see playing on Sunday. I also think the Glasgow brothers can make the league, maybe not first couple rounds but they have only really played football the last 3 years. It's really hard to tell if a guy is really going to be an NFL talent until they have 3 years in a college S&C program. At MSU no one even plays until their third year because they can redshirt everybody.
I assume from your name that you have been a M fan since what 1992. So you have seen M teams in the past that guys who sat the bench for two years and get their chance in their junior and senior years go on to be NFL players. These next two to three years we finally have a roster that we will have the luxury for players to sit and actually learn. So while a guy Thomas may disappoint a lot of fans, in years past he would have sat the bench a couple years like he has and been playing his junior and senior years. We have just had terrible attrition the last 7 years that young guys didn't have the luxury to sit 2 years.

I have a feeling we are going to be competing for the big ten champ game in year one. (Seth sorry your crazy 4 or 5 years). This team is very experienced and we finally won't be one of the youngest teams in the country.

I have a couple questions for people who are more knowledgeable than I am in regards to concussions. First from what I understand of concussions is it happens when your brain basically hits your skull.

In Ohio you can find full contact leagues for 4th graders. I think most leagues start at 5th grade though.
