Kovacs doesn't seem slow to me. I hear this meme all the time,"Kovacs is slow", I look for it on the field but I cain't see it. Kovacs does NOT have a case of the slows, not a burner, but not slow either.

Maybe Kovacs was slower as a frosh coming off knee surgery, but I can't recall if he was or wasn't, it was too recent. I have a better memory for things that happened in the 70's and 80's

Don't forget our other gritty players: Roh, RVB, Heininger, Brink, Ryan, Van Slyke, Molk, Lewan, Huyge, Schofield, Dileo, McColgan, Mealer, Khoury, Paskorz, Watson, Wile, Gibbons, and Hagerup. Tony Posada was gritty, too, but he quit the team.

So I've pretty much decided that if I ever have a son I'm going to break out tapes of Kovac's days at Michigan and show them to him. He is the perfect example of how putting in the work, staying dedicated to your dream, and never giving up can allow you to achieve what many think is impossible. Its a life lesson that is so valuable. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.

The piece on Kovacs didn't really get into it, but wasn't he a standout HS player before he had his knee injury? 

I can't remember where I read it (probably Mgoblog), that he had a fair amount of D1 interest but his knee injury was significant enough that schools backed off completely.

Thanks for including that Kovacs short. I could watch that over and over again. Such a a great story and I'm happy for his success. The kid deserves it. I hope he gets on an NFL squad some where.

Brian will have fun with that UFR. Going to take a yeoman's effort.  That's a lot of plays!  Guess the defensive one won't be that big of a deal...:-)

Thanks for the vids!
