Ban cheerios from my kitchen... 

I'm wondering if T-Wolf taught his dog to get angry at the OSU fight song, or their stupid chants? Now i'm wondering if I can teach my dog the same...

Hopefully the other members of the secondary can step up, and Woolfolk can continue to build on last year.  He was improving every game towards the end of the season last year, wish him nothing but the best. 

Its great to see things like this (the cereal and O ban) from our players, love them speaking up about the rivalry.

Go Blue!!!!!

I just think that sort of thing can grow into unwanted factions within the team (Team Moxie vs. Team Dilithium). Even if Troy believes it and even if it is true, if Rodriguez isn't saying it publically, players shouldn't be saying it publically.

Judging by the amount of support for Denard this off-season (by sophomores [Roh] and seniors [T-Wolf] alike), I think Team Moxie may have one player on it.  Everyone seems to love Denard, with no love for Tate.  And these are the guys who see Denard and Tate throw everyday in skeleton drills, which we know the coaches cannot watch.

rodriguez says it then he's tipped his hand, thus negating the whole competition at every posistion mantra. Which I wholely believe in.  It makes everybody better to compete daily. 

No,  RR should not criticize any player publicly especially if it's on voluntary practice time which he cannot observe.  (remember the whole practice gate NCAA sanctions thingy) Secondly, critisism comming from a peer is a different internal dynamic than critisim from an authority figure ie peer pressure. 

So yes Troy is a Senior leader and should call his teamate out if he's not carrying his "own water" as it were.

"I have no idea... come hit me up after the second week of camp and I'll tell you."  Said all 3 should have the opportunity to play.  That could be the standard line, except change second week to last week.  Or after the first half at UCONN

Taking sides is one of the dangers of dual QBs.  No egos hurt if everyone says both play

Love that the team seems to be having fun this year.  I've always felt that teams who stayed loose and relaxed made better decisions, bonded together, and had better results.  Last year the team seemed hungry too, but because they were so young they played with such raw emotion.  That was a real roller coaster ride of a season for the team and fans.

This is the attitude that I want, playing those bastards has to mean more than just a football game.  It's good to know that guys like Troy understand that, and are hopefully passing it along to the young guys.

Woolfolk had a lot to say about Tate.

https://www.michigandaily.com/content/woolfolk-quarterback-competition-appears-have-new-leader

 

"Denard has been out there through the thick and thin and been out there all the time regardless if he's hurting," Woolfolk said. "And Tate, he tries to come out, but he's not as consistent as Denard is. And that's allowed Denard to jump a little bit ahead of Tate and I think that Tate's going to have to do a lot of work to catch back up to Denard in camp this year."

On players who don't show up for voluntary workouts:

"I personally have a lack of respect for them," Woolfolk said. "The outlook on them is kind of diseased. Like you don't want to be hanging around those people because they have bad work ethic. But at the same time, it's my role to try to persuade them to come out more."

"The only reason he's (Tate) not really labeled as diseased is because of the way he was able to carry the team last year before we started losing. People still trust him a little bit, but he's starting to lose that trust."

Wow.

Edit: sorry, I didn't take the time to look and see if this had already been discussed.  I'm so fucking stupid!
