I guess Johnson get's on the 3 deep by default.  We haven't heard a peep out of him so I wouldn't be surprised if Hutchinson is ahead of him pretty quickly.

Before he even signed his LOI, I predicted Johnson would go the Poggi route and flip to FB.  

07/19/2018 - 12:59am I think NT is Solomon and…

I think NT is Solomon and Mone and Dwumfour is the 3T.  With rumblings of Kemp playing some inside, I wouldn't be surprised if he is backup 3T, or maybe Marshall.  And remember we ran with 4 DTs less than half the time last year, so depth isn't a huge issue barring injury.

07/18/2018 - 11:17pm Of all the OSU coaches I'd…

Of all the OSU coaches I'd like to see in trouble and possibly in jeopardy of losing their job, Smith probably ranks dead last.

07/18/2018 - 11:13pm Yeah I don't know that this…

Yeah I don't know that this is new information.  I just hope his weight gain is good weight.  He already has a history of seesawing weight, so I hope it's from the weight training program and not from dorm food and being laid up with an injury.

07/18/2018 - 12:38am Probably on here a little…

Probably on here a little less.  Post way less, especially since there isn't much football related topics to post about.  But maybe that's due to the time of year.

07/16/2018 - 12:33am I wish he was a little bit…

I wish he was a little bit taller.  But with Carton gone, I'm all aboard the Rocket train.

Would we take both Robinson and Jackson?

I must have missed it, where are all the political posts?

07/11/2018 - 10:31pm Yep, this was the first…

Yep, this was the first thing I thought of.  Kid went on to UNC and became a starter there.  Kid was pissed though, talking about burning all his Michigan gear.

07/10/2018 - 4:09am Hopefully this year I spend…

Hopefully this year I spend less time yelling at the TV wondering why we are having our S cover a slot WR.  We got burned by that way too many times.

07/08/2018 - 1:05am Saw that, considered…

Saw that, considered starting a new thread about it as this one is kinda old.  Is Petzold reliable?

06/27/2018 - 11:26pm Wasn't Jourdan Lewis part of…

Wasn't Jourdan Lewis part of that weekend?

I think it also included Shallman, Bosch, Dawson, LTT.  Maybe Taco as well?  can't remember.

06/26/2018 - 12:29am yeah i'm not sure on this…

yeah i'm not sure on this one either.  He is outrunning HS competition. but he doesn't have elite speed or shiftiness.  Doesn't mean he won't be good, just don't think he has the potential to be a star.  But if he is smart, runs good routes, has good hands and is a willing blocker, i'm ok with that.

06/25/2018 - 11:50pm Have to agree on Spencer…

Have to agree on Spencer Brown, man that kid looks athletic.  Wish we had a chance at flipping him.  Are the coaches even trying at this point?

06/25/2018 - 9:46pm You think High School kids…

You think High School kids are paying attention to that stuff?  They probably don't even know it's going on.

06/24/2018 - 9:08pm This kid could be a beast. …

This kid could be a beast.  Just watched his film, very impressed.  Great shiftiness for a guy his size, and not afraid to lower a shoulder and doesn't go down on first contact when he lowers that shoulder either.  Put some weight on him and watch out.

06/24/2018 - 9:06pm 11.2 isn't elite, but it's…

11.2 isn't elite, but it's not too shabby either.

06/22/2018 - 12:28am Didn't this kid drag out his…

Didn't this kid drag out his recruitment way past signing day?

06/21/2018 - 2:46am Evans doesn't seem to have a…

Evans doesn't seem to have a specialized role.  He gets lots of carries same as Higdon.  The only specialized RB role in this offense seems to be the FB on short yardage.

06/20/2018 - 3:34am Making me feel old as I…

Making me feel old as I remember seeing Renes win the HS state wrestling championship his senior year.  Beat Spolsky (RIP) out of CC I believe.

06/20/2018 - 12:14am Looks like he has decent…

Looks like he has decent speed.  Runs hard.  Needs to do a better job of high pointing the ball.  Interested to see how he develops the next couple years.

06/19/2018 - 3:02am I can't imagine these offers…

I can't imagine these offers are commitable at this point.  Kind of like that 5'11" OL we just offered.  More of a way to catch their interest and we will see how they develop.

06/19/2018 - 12:17am I like his film, moves well…

I like his film, moves well for a guy his size.  Lacks an explosive first step, but if he had that then he would probably be a 5 star.  He also stands up at the snap, but plenty of time to fix that problem.  Hope we get him.

06/19/2018 - 12:14am Probably because most kids…

Probably because most kids don't report a 4.37 40. 

06/19/2018 - 12:10am How many fakes on that 40? …

How many fakes on that 40?  If that's legit at 6'4" for a high school kid, that's pretty impressive.

06/19/2018 - 12:08am Watched his film, just left…

Watched his film, just left me with more questions.  Like why did we offer.  Not overly worried though.  Past years have shown that if scholarships are tight come signing day, some of these borderline recruits will start looking around at other schools.

06/19/2018 - 12:00am Very impressed with the…

Very impressed with the Ojabo film.  Lots of potential there, looks very athletic.  I like him more than that Dicosmo kid we are after.

06/14/2018 - 10:45pm Every year there is hype…

Every year there is hype about a walkon.  In the last 20+ years of Michigan Football, I can count on one hand the number of walkons (non kicker types or fullbacks) who were starter/difference maker types.  Good for him, and hopefully he will be a difference maker.  But right now I see this as a motivational tactic and I will believe it when I see it.

06/13/2018 - 1:54am Who knows, I've seen recent…

Who knows, I've seen recent mocks with him not in the first round.

06/13/2018 - 1:48am I never finished the series …

I never finished the series (it bogs way down at book 6) but decided since the whole series is done now, I should do a re-read and finish the whole thing.  on book 3 so far.  Actually started reading the series the first time over 20 years ago.  I feel like it holds up ok over time, but honestly after reading George RR Martin, I'm afraid the whole genre is a bit of a bust for me.  I have yet to find anything that comes close to the level of writing of Martin.  But I will continue to slog through WOT (Amazon producing a series btw) and Sanderson and any other writers that catch my attention, hoping for the best.

06/13/2018 - 1:42am I've had Killer Angels…

I've had Killer Angels sitting on my bookshelf for probably 15+ years now.  I should probably get around to reading it.  Civil War just isn't a setting that interests me.

06/13/2018 - 1:39am I can finally post in this…

I can finally post in this thread, as I can finally log on.  I had tried resetting my password the other day and it wouldn't even let me do that.  Hopefully the problem is fixed now and it's not a temporary fix.

06/08/2018 - 2:05am Step back from what? …

Step back from what?  Crawford hardly played as a freshmen.  Seemed like he had everything  you need to be a decent WR, except the hands.

Agree about Walker, unless he was passed by Samuels, I expected him to get a decent number of carries as the #3 RB.

06/07/2018 - 4:54am my experience so far has…

my experience so far has been... not great.  Took me a few days just to find this board.  Wasn't seeing any new posts on the app, and if I went to the front page on a browser I got a big yellow montrosity with no link to the board.  Finally a google search brought me here.  Still don't know how to get the real front page, and using a browser on my phone is a pain.

06/03/2018 - 2:11pm that's not how it works. when you transfer you

that's not how it works. when you transfer you lose that year of eligibility. you have 5 years to play 4.

I had a client once who played euro ball. they didn't touch weights. they just played a lot of basketball to stay in shape.

05/30/2018 - 4:46pm great hands, not so great

great hands, not so great speed.

Do we have an ETA for Matthews?

05/30/2018 - 11:54am Do we actually have a chance

Do we actually have a chance at McDaniels?  Is he even visiting?  I hope so, I think a lot of people are just getting their hopes up about him just because Beilein is reaching out.

05/25/2018 - 2:52am We don't know that we are

We don't know that we are full at LB.  If the coaches think he can contribute and help the team, why wouldn't they take him?  They have taken lesser talent as grad transfers.

05/25/2018 - 2:49am Every coach, ever, always

Every coach, ever, always raves about his team in the off season.  This isn't to say that they aren't good, but take it with a grain of salt.

i would be happy flipping Spencer Brown. guy has tons of potential.

Traylor was with Bullock and White. year after the Ward/Taylor class I believe.

05/16/2018 - 3:55pm thanks for making me feel old. I missed curfew

thanks for making me feel old. I missed curfew waiting for that game to end watching it at my HS girlfriends house.

05/15/2018 - 11:51pm watching his film, looks

watching his film, looks solid.  Not going to complain if he commits, yet he isn't going to make me forget about any 5 star or top 100 types either.  Seems to be a willing tackler, though it's mostly diving at ankles instead of wrapping up.  Rather he not do it out of bounds though if he is playing for us.

05/15/2018 - 11:36pm but he's only 5'11"...
I

but he's only 5'11"...

I kid.  But I do find it interesting that after a year of taking only 6'2" CBs, we are now pursuing guys that are sub 6'.

who uses a parking break? unless you live in San Fran I guess.
