Is it just me or is there a huge similarity between this years football team and basketball team? Last year's backbone has been removed from both, but new, exciting talent will be tested for the first time. The basketball team will likely have some games like the Virginia Tech football game this year, but I think they can find an upward trajectory similar to what our football team seems to be experiencing currently.
I really think it is supposed to be a complement.
No one hates Purdue.
His power would be a great complement to either Hill or McCall (which ether one doesn't end up as an h back).
I would love to hear Braxton's recollection of this. Unless he was a little dinged up too, it seems like Braxton might not have moved out of fear of moving someone with a neurologic, and potentially spinal cord related injury, which could potentially worsen the injury. Gholston is big, but Braxton could have slipped out from under him if he didn't think something was up.
I really would love for Michigan to lose him. However, that doesn't mean that I care if he came here. I suppose given a little bit of time I could forgive him, but if he goes elsewhere that's just fine with me.
We got ahead and Urban did a Tressel impression by playing keep away rather than hurry up. The time of possession statistic was gaudy, like 42 minutes or something, and that was because we knew we were going to score anyways so why give the other team more time to respond? I think everyone has realized that we are best at a fast tempo and we will be doing that when the game is on the line.
This has probably been posted elsewhere in one of the million Michigan threads, but there is a interesting thread on Mgo about locker room issues, players only meetings, and Peppers being a potential transfer candidate. It may all be completely unfounded, but it is interesting nonetheless.
The original post:
I do not know where to post this but here's information for you.
1. Michigan will be holding a players only meeting tomorrow, spearheaded by Jake Ryan, and Ramon Taylor.
2. Shane has a high ankle sprain, doubtful he plays next week. Can barely put pressure on it.
3. Desmond Morgan is highly upset that Jabril didn't play today.
4. Players morale has geniuely finally dipped.
5. Jabril turned his back to the coaches after the game, and looked in his locker. He's highly disgusted.
6. Doesn't feel like a team, defense keeps to defense. Offense to offense. Not much cross mingling between them after this game.
7. Nuss & Hoke argued with Dave Brandon present. Words weren't audible to any one else.
Peppers had a minor nagging leg issue, and could have played. But apparently shouted "That's why you f***ing (edited) play me." to Manning after making a big play in practice. Coaches talked it over and thought he needed to realize he wasn't bigger than the program.
Make of it what you will (if anything at all).
I wish no ill will on Tommy Tuberville the man, but I'm glad that Tommy Tuberville the Meyer-slaying enigma is now deceased.
It is nice to know Taylor Decker really gets it.
I agree. I just feel sorry for Washington being forced to change positions constantly. Hopefully the NFL appreciates his versatility and rewards him for it.
Schutt then talked about Adolphus Washington and needless to say he’s impressed with the 6-foot-4, 295-pound specimen.
“To be honest, he’s a freak,” Schutt said. “You can put him inside or on the perimeter and he makes plays wherever he’s at.”
It’s interesting that Schutt brought that up on his own because earlier on Wednesday head coach Urban Meyer mentioned Washington was playing some defensive end so the Buckeyes could get their four-best defensive lineman on the field together at times (Bennett, Joey Bosa, Schutt, Washington).
“Absolutely,” Schutt said. “Adolphus is a very versatile guy. Like I said, you can put him inside or outside. Having a big guy like that on the edge is definitely pretty scary for a tackle to see that.”
I think i read that they have talked about this. I'll look for a link.
Of all of your very long posts, this was my favorite.
It says he is unofficially visiting today but I doubt that alone is enough to make Wiltfong and Rock both crystal ball him to us.
I could see him turning into a Danny Clark recruit that is offered and committed in like eighth grade and we just have to wait years and years to see him play.
I don't see them stopping us much at all. We won't stop them everytime but we will get a stop here and there. So unless turnovers become an issue we should win, but I have no idea by how much.
I have a very good feeling about Hill's potential in this offense.
Thanks for the firsthand information.
I think the reason it has to be a medical redshirt instead of a normal redshirt is because he played in the kent state game. As far as I know, medical redshirts have the rule about percentage of the season played, while normal redshirts have a basic played or didn't play requirement.
I think it is less likely after the whole "silent commit" rumor which annoyed him. He is probably more likely to stick to his previously announced date. However, this opinion just says less likely, not at all impossible.
I'm glad we are getting in on Myers so early. If we could manage to lock him down, he and Clark would be te best cornerstones you could ask for in a class that's still years away.
Between Sweat and Jefferson, the elite prospects of this class seem to be really great people which is exactly what football needs given their current public relations problems.
Your source's statement about star rankings should be plastered on every recruiting related article.
Either you have a freakishly good memory, or you did your homework. Either way, well done.
This could be a romanticised idea, however, I think Meyer did the interview for all the other obsessive coaches who feel so much pressure to win. He is telling them that what they are going through is common and that they should balance their lives or risk losing everything. This message can extend to driven individuals in any field, whether Meyer thinks about it or not.
If Hubbard goes from being a high school safety to defensive end at Ohio State it would be an previously unheard of transition.
I trust JT to make good reads and deliver a catchable ball on short routes.
