I can't get over Borges's words about Denard when asked if he's coached anyone like him. 

"No. No. Now, some of the guys that I've coached could do... no."

I like the fact that Mattison doesn't know anything about the 3-3-5. Music to my ears! Borges is like real hard rock mime music to my ears. Can we get some sub titles?

Yup, Nathan Brink:

"He's played like a Michigan football player," Mattison said. "I hate to talk about a young man because I think when I do that they go right down in the tubes but this guy has come out every day as tough as he can. He listens to Coach Montgomery on every word. When he tells him to step a certain way, he tries, and he's really, really physical. 

"I think he was probably 250 in the spring and we told him to get to 265 and when he was reporting, I yelled, 'What do you weigh?' He said, '265' and I told him to drink some water and sure enough he started drinking water. Now I think he's 267 or 268. 

"In the spring, his toughness showed up and he was only 250 at that time. But his want-to and toughness stuck out like crazy. And that's what we want - 11 guys that play with that kind of attitude.

"He's a guy that if he keeps doing what he's doing, Michigan people are going to be very happy with him."
