On this episode of Angelique's View From the Press Box podcast, she interviews Charles Woodson beginning @ the 29:00 minute mark (also James B. Hawkins from the Detroit News who gives his takes on UofM men's hoops).
CW tells the story of Shea calling to ask permission to wear No. 2; gives his takes on players sitting out bowl games; the Peach Bowl; Coach Harbaugh; Tom Brady (the G.O.A.T); the Heisman "controversy"; Mattison going to OSU (hint - he didn't like it); and discusses what he feels is the missing between how his 90's team got ready for OSU versus this era of UofM football.
Charles has some really fair takes, none of the ad hominem or "prisoner of the moment" attacks we've seen from former players that shall remain unnamed. He describes an "obsessive" mentality when it came to beating OSU, how they knew if they could win that one game they were prepared for any other team. He's critical of the team for not preparing better for OSU after Indiana exploited similar weaknesses and compared it to having a NFL "copycat league" awareness.
Overall nothing groundbreaking but I think it's always worth hearing someone with CW's G.O.A.T status and historical perspective offer critical but supportive assessment of the program. Do you agree or disagree with his takes?
