I just watched Countdown to Kickoff #23 and am ready to shed my anti-walk on bias; at least when it comes to Kovacs. He is a solid kid who loves Michigan and has the attitude and fortitude that we want to see in all Wolverines. It is rare for a true walk on to make an impact and many of us withheld our seal of approval in hopes that a scholarship player with stronger measurables would emerge. It wasn't enough that he made a zillion tackles (and barely missed any) including 17 against MSU. It wasn't enough that he played hard every down and was almost always in the right position. All we could see was that he was smoked by that Indiana running back and that he could not possibly be great because of his status.
I hereby resign from that club and declare myself to be a Jordan Kovacs fan. May he SPUR us to glorious defensive heights.
