Spring Practice video #7 (mgovideo)

Submitted by Yostbound and Down on March 17th, 2015 at 10:48 PM

Drink up MGoBloggers. Your video for St. Patrick's day is here.

Brief summary:

  • Showed pretty even snaps for the quarterbacks in the clips. Deveon with a nice truck. Malzone with a nice roll out and chuck to Norfleet.
  • Little spotlight on O and D lines.
  • Grbac and Carr highlighted. No interviews unfortunately.
  • Of note to headgear enthusiasts/WD, Harbaugh is now sporting the adidas version of the Bo hat
  • Really too short of a video. Give us some more footage Ed!

I'd follow Mama G Bush on Twitter, she had some pictures from practice today up.

Edit: Angelique posted some video of Baxter's interview. Talks about the academic gameplan. Hope we get to hear more about the Bomb Squad.

Appears Poggi is officially taking snaps on offense...not sure if that was ever confirmed. Saw him pulling as a tight end/h-back on a Morris rollout in the middle of the video.

Can someone tell me what that contraption is at the 1:39 mark in the video?  It's the plastic arm thingy that receivers and running backs run through.  I'm not sure what the point of that thing is.  Anyone know?

Edit: Section 12R embedded a picture of it above.

Yeah, okay.  My question is kinda serious.  I've seen that in various football practice videos over the years and I can't see what value it provides.  It must have some coaching / training purpose.  Just something to acclimate WR and RB to running into and through resistance?

I do kinda wonder if the adidas reps whispered something to Harbaugh or Hackett about wearing it vs. the New Era. Still looks sharp, I might have to get one.

On a side note I LOVED when Harbaugh was with his daughter (Addie? spelling?) and the Hacketts at a basketball game, think it was when he was eating pizza, and she had a Nike sweatshirt on, right courtside. Good unintentional trolling.

Speaking of "hats", the maize on the helmets still does not match the maize on the jerseys.  You would think a program like Michigan would have enough stature to get the helmet maker and the jersey maker in sync.  

It should be part of our zillion dollar contract: "Thou shall sync your jersey maize with the helmet maize", and vice versa.

Dude looks like he is in great shape. Another summer of training and I see him ready to challenge to start. He certainly looks the part

I heard from a friend who hosts a sports podcast said Morris is underperforming in practice so much that they're considering redshirting him so he can transfer and play two years elsewhere. Didn't ask how he knew that.

Doesn't make sense. If Morris were to redshirt at Michigan then transfer he'd have to sit out a year and lose a year of eligibility. He'd only have one year to play.

I'm kind of over the speculation regarding Morris. A number of fans wanted him to replace Gardner last season (and even the year before) but he has had a limited number of chances under not exactly great conditions (new coordinators, underperforming teams, fan negativity towards AD and Hoke). I'd hate to write him off in favor of two freshman QBs with no experience.
