Westwood, he is NOT a Michigan Man:

I think 300 would be a pretty solid number as well ... and I think the delta between Total Offense and Devin Gardner Offense is likely to be well under 50 yards.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Stribling||
He's all of about 15 months into playing CB seriously. Prior to the 'M' camp before his senior year he was all about playing WR.
Something tells me when we get through these freshman growing pains we are going to be VERY happy with him on the field....
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Very excited to see...||
... Mikey Weber as a Wolverine. (fingers crossed)
I go back a ways in recruiting (LoL) and I am struggling to remember being more excited about a pair of RBs in one class than I would be with MW and Damien H . Could be our answer to UGa's class of Gurley/Marshall.

Always a high goober factor in that crew....
|12 weeks 4 days ago||NCAA and MSU||
>>MSU is too small of a program for the NCAA or the national press to waste their time with.
That is exactly why the NCAA might do something.
They would never voluntarily do something to a program that matters (financially).
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Future secondary||
Even if we got JuJu, I doubt we would see a lot of Peppers+JuJu+Dymonte+Countess. I can see Dymonte taking Thomas Gordon's spot next year (he had better!) but I doubt JuJu displaces Jarrod Wilson ... more likely that he would be Wilson's successor.
It will be interesting to see if Raymon Taylor can hold off Stribling (maybe), Hollowell (probably) and Lewis (maybe) by the end of NEXT year.
I would bet we do see lots of Peppers though....

He was standing immeditaely next to Taylor ... so Lord only knows what was being said. It might have been all Glasgow could do to not fall over laughing at that point.

It is amazing what southerners can do to make you crave chicken. Chick Fil A was first, now Canes comes along and wham! I believe D Terrell might even call it bomb-@ss.

Because Mike Williams and stuff....
|1 year 12 weeks ago||How about the Sparty OT commit?||
Ace, what did you think of Finley?
I don't want to read too much into your comment about the CT line's struggles -- and the absence of praise for Finely. (well, actually I *DO* want to ... but figure I should ask)
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Mistaken Massey||
You show Pat as a 3/4* borderline. I think you were thinking of Mike, the TE, class of '04.
Pat was a near-consensus 4*+ guy in the same class as Pierre Woods -- 2001?
In the 'where is he now' annals, Pat is a big-time guy (for his age) in high finance these days, just FYI. Works at a very well-established private investment firm in OH.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Great Daily article, BUT...||
... the editors need to bone up on their Michigan timeline: in the spring of 1990 the Fab Five were not months away from enrolling, they were a year and a few months away.
1991 was a pretty darned good calendar year in Michigan sports, following up on the disappointment of 1990 (which included the aforementioned hockey tourney screwing; the Bo Kimble and Loyola catastrophe in hoops; being ranked #1 in football twice only to lose the heartbreaker at ND and the Sparty mugging of Desmond in the end zone on the extra point, relegating a very talented team to the Gator Bowl; and missing on Michigan uber-legacy Eric Montross in hoops recruiting).
In 1991, Desmond won the Heisman and we earned a trip to the Rose Bowl, the Fab Five signed on in the Spring and then immediately turned the world upside down whenthey showed up in the Fall, and we finally made the NCAA hockey tournament that Spring.
Among the students who were hard core sports fans, I wouldn't say the hockey part of that was as big as the others (it clearly wasn't) ... but emotionally it was HUGE. The sense of relief, accomplishment and pride for that group of guys was really palpable on campus. I think everyone who had felt that kick in the gut along with the 1990 team was openly overjoyed in 1991. I remember people hugging in the stands and screaming their minds out about it. To me it was the start of what would become Yost as we know it.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Lacy not practicing is about||
Lacy not practicing is about as devastating to them as Mike Hart not practicing while he was here. In other words, big whoop. The guy is an absolute load, better than any RB we faced last year. He has seen tons of action already, and that is a veteran OL and QB he's working with.
In fact, it is almost less of a big deal to them than when Mike H didn't practice for us. With Lacy out, that other Hart (Dee) and early enrollee TJ Yeldon with both get tons of valuable reps.
Bama's backfield may not have the foursome that LSU rolled out there ... but their top three are better, IMO (assuming Dee is all the way back by the fall). Devastating group, esp since those OLs came back rather than jumping early.
I'm assuming Demens is up worrying at night about tackling Lacy. At least he had better be. He has to play his best game of his career, period. As does BWC, to state a more obvious one. Lacy is going to be running downhill right at those two ... hopefully not right through them though!!
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Bama's QB||
IDK Hart20 ... my Bama in-laws (veteran eyes, to say the least) seem to think McCarron projects out as the best QB they've had in quite some time.
He clearly got a LOT better as the season went on last year. He looked pretty darned good against that LSU D in the title game.

From all I've heard, they are not buddies.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Thx Brian, but would really like...||
Would really like your thoughts breaking down the Va Tech-Stanford bowl game and either of the Clemson games from this year.
Interested to see what you find worked so effectively against the Hokies, rather than seeing what didn't work against them.
(That probably sounds ungrateful, but isn't meant to be....)

Isaac isn't up against Shallman for a particular seat in the next class. There is room for both. They are very different prospects.

"You know what? All those internet football junkies are freaking out wondering if I'm really no taller than you, or if I'm actually the 6'4" listed on the roster and this is just a picture taken from a deceptive camera angle."

Does Fred J have compromising photos tucked away of Mary Sue, Lloyd, a prominent faculty member and one or more farm animals?
It would be great to hear John U's thoughts on how that guy has managed to keep his no-accountability gig for so long.

Miles and Herrmann (or the Herrmanns, as it were)
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Rasmus||
I totally agree with you Rasmus. Methinks this is your proverbial high ceiling late bloomer. The staff uncovered a gem, and he happens to be a kid who understands 1) the value of a scholarship to Michigan and 2) that a gray shirt can very well be playing to the strength of a late bloomer.
I think Tim is just wrong on this one. The fact pattern speaks pretty loudly.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||? for Tim||
Did you personally watch this kid live?
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Fred sez||
Nicely done jaws. But you forgot the Ronnie Lott and Tripp Welbourne parts. He is a safety after all.

I thnk you meant "still-drunk-from-this-morning Alex Boone"
|2 years 31 weeks ago||That move is more likely than||
That move is more likely than the reverse, as a general rule. Lots and lots of recruits are labelled OTs coming in, only to be moved inside. Schilling, Omameh, Zirbel, McAvoy, Ciulla, Gallimore (yes, yes, a muderer's row there toward the end I know....).
For the most part, that is a doable transition. It is the rare beast whose lanky OL build necessitates a stay outside.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Sheldon Day||
I noticed the same thing rockydude ... surprised a clear top 100 guy on scout (at DT, no less ... widely viewed by coaches as a tough spot to grab athletes) didn't even make the top 250 on rivals.
TomVH, would certainly love to hear your thoughts on Day and Michigan....

Kinda glad the Rock game clip wasn't in HD. I didn't need to have it presented to me even more glaringly that what we just got. Yikes.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Those who thought Brian was||
Those who thought Brian was overly harsh on Ezeh really surprise me. I thought Ezeh was as spectacularly missing from the play as I have ever seen him.
I was actually hoping to read a snide remark from Brian in the breakdown of the late 1H play where Kovacs forced the fumble. Yes Leach completely FAILed on that play, but watch Obi ... he does his little pause and then AGAIN runs the wrong way. Mouton started right away and took a step outside/upfield on the front side of the play. The RB was looking backside before he got the ball and never thought about going elsewhere. Obi basically just decides he is going to throw himself into the strength of the line as a (semi-)speeding bullet. He just runs up into the wash and makes himself entirely irrelevant as a defender. In fact, Mouton has seen where the RB is going and is trying to come across the line and has found a hole (it won't work if he makes it, because he's too far away ... but at least he is doing what he can), but Obi plows into him from behind.
There is no question that Leach was just a disaster here. But Obi ought to have been defender #2 on the scene of the tackle, but instead he does what he specializes in: he goes in completely the wrong direction.
The MLB spot in this D ought to make plays. Obi doesn't. He's just a mess of a football player. He has anti-instincts.

I'm hoping it was a bit more Ed Reed "I'm hurt dawg!" than Tebow tears ... but either way we definitely could use Roh to just go off from this point on. He is the highest-ceiling game changer among our D starters.
