Twitter is so confusing! I'm only 20 and it makes me feel like I'm 70. Who's doing the talking in the last one, there are two "and me too"'s

Edit: Nvm, just saw strobel's username

Meyer probably tried to explain away the fact that the tailback position was an afterthought in his offense.  He had zero 1,000-yard rushers at tailback in his six years at UF.

He has two National Championships. Who the hell cares about 1,000 yard rushers. I really don't get the Urban hate in terms of what he has done in the world of college football. He has won everywhere and he didn't simply win at FL because of Tebow. There was a guy named Chris Leak there when Tebow was a situational gimmick. The guy will win. I don't think he will win more than Hoke over the next 10 years but he will win. In fact, him+Braxton Miller scares the hell out of me.

That's a good point, but I think you're missing the argument here. Brionte wants to have a chance to play in a prostyle offense which will then best help him get to the NFL. Meyer has not produced that type of player or used that type of player in his offense. Dunn doesn't like that offense as a result. If Dunn goes to OSU and isn't used properly, it might hinder him from accomplishing other goals, like playing in the NFL, even if he is on a national championship team.

  " - "hhh"I don't think he will win more than Hoke over the next 10 years but he will win" - Get real! Mattison's vaunted defensive prowess was one missed long pass from losing to a Fickell-coached Buckeye team (at home no less). "Hoke" rhymes with "choke", "joke", "yoke" (that the Buckeyes will put on them), "broke", and "toke" (the only way UM students will be able to feel good after "The Game" from here on out).

"Meyer" rhymes with "fire", "desire", "higher", "inspire", "retire" (Hoke, that is), and "acquire" (recruits and victories).

Now that the Bucks have that loss out of their system (it was bound to happen sooner or later,and during a down year to boot - might as well do it during a throw away year), Meyer will get them geared up so high that TSUN will long for the "Tressel years." Say "goodbye" to the Ohio recruiting pipeline (kind of ironic that UM depends on Ohio players - the converse is certainly not true- don't they play high school football up there?). Maybe UM should become a OSU satellite campus....

"Hoke springs eternal"? I guess it will have to every year because it will never be realized after getting crushed each year by Meyer's Buckeyes!

Go Bucks! (we'll see if the MGoBlog folks can take this heat).

according to a scout article, Urban will be making an in a house visit this week and they talked about how dunn would fit in the offense over the phone. 


November 28th, 2011 at 11:39 PM ^

He would fit into the O as the situational power runner, something all O's need. Tebow fit that bill at FL fortunately for Meyer along with everything else possible. Dunn is not a situational runner though; he is, and should be, a features back.
<br>But somehow I think Meyer told him he would run pro-style, just to get him into the fold.


November 28th, 2011 at 11:30 PM ^

Unfortunately for Dunn, Michigan should be running quite a bit of spread next year -- however with Morris coming in (and Gardner's height and passing ability), I hope Dunn recognizes that we are truly moving into a pro-style offense.


November 28th, 2011 at 11:33 PM ^

Michigan runs the spread and still gets a 1,000 yard RB along with Denard.  All Urban had for running was Tebow at Florida.  And with Gardner the offense will be a lot more pro set heavy, and then with Shane it will almost cetainly be all pro with some shotgun thrown in.
