Why Michigan Seniors Accomplished What They Did

Submitted by Ziff72 on January 6th, 2012 at 12:12 PM

I'm always on guys for not being in shape.  I'm a grinder and I expect the guys I support to be grinders as well.   Well my friends it appears Michigan is losing some grinders and leaders.  2 days after the Sugar Bowl?!?!    RVB and Molk eperienced injuries as well.

Mad props to these guys I wish them well,  Great saying in the background.  Nothing but good in these pictures.

I wonder how different current coach Aaron Wellman's methods are versus Barwis and what made the players choose Barwis to get them ready for the draft.

I'm sure Barwis will do a great job and good luck to all the fellas - thank them again for all they have done over the years.

I'm sure there are more reasons than they're "grinders."  Well done, though.  This is an awesome thread.  Facebook link and all.

health of the team this year and compare it  to previous years, you got to beleive that Wellman did a fine job.

They may have a better relationship with Barwis, they may get more individuilized attention or it could be that combine training may be a bit different than the football routine and Barwis was the better choice

...I would like to see a little more love for Coach Wellman because he did a heck of a job putting a tough, physical, healthy team on the field this past season.

I get that Barwis has a lot more "personality", but let's give some credit ti the guy who is quietly and effectively executing his job as the current S&C Coach for Michigan Football.

I have never understood why anyone would ascribe almost supernatural powers to Barwis.  Did he do a good job?  I don't have the expertise to do an evaluation. You certainly can't look at W,'s, L's and injuries and use those measures as  yardstick.   I think it would be reasonable to suppose that there are S&C trainers all over the country with skills that are every bit as good, and that may include our current S & C coach.

miss these guys.  They were a special group without there heart and leadership who knows how long it would have taken for michigan to be respectable.  Good luck at the next level, go get em boys.
