The coaches put Gibson in the slot to outrun the safety on a nine route like they did with Devin Smith. 

Campbell gets significant playing time at the H.  McCall red shirts. 

We are all impressed by how good our defensive tackles (including backups that round out the rotation) are by the end of the year. 

Most of the 2016 class red shirts. Mack plays special teams but not significantly on offense.

I've had them, they are good, but I am an ale man at heart so inevitably if I'm getting Guinness it will be normal or extra stout.

This year (assuming he starts as a freshman) Elflien will handle him just fine. Pat could easily be in the NFL so a true freshman, no matter how highly ranked, shouldn't be too big of a deal. 

Next year who ever takes over for Elflien needs to be ready. I like our guys and I trust our coaches so I think it'll be just fine.

Idea: next year someone should get Michigan's fax number and send some 500 page document to it using it up and annoying them all morning on signing day.

The most likely, even after reaffirming today, is probably Burns but I doubt it.

On paper it should be a small class, but I think we will have guys that haven't even started yet leaving early for the NFL.  Someone like Dante Booker could blow up this year and leave early. I already assume Conley and McMillan will be gone. If Jamarco Jones has a great year at tackle he could leave early.  If Erik Smith stays healthy he has the potential to leave. If Worley wins the job and has a great year he could skip his final year and if he doesn't start he might leave as well.  Samuel will have way more opportunities to shine and will likely have a tough decision.  The list goes on and on.

Every year we talk about how small the class will be but the talent we have brought in means no one that is eligible is safe from possibly making the jump.

He had huge potential. I doubt even Harbaugh forced him out. Either unhappy there or off the field problems.

I don't think we are going away from small receivers completely but I definitely believe Meyer is trying to strike a good balance between small receivers and large receivers that was absent in the early part of his tenure. 

Because it is rare to have a receiver who is truly bigger and faster than everyone, we might be specializing into two categories. If we take someone who is below six foot one it's because they are ridiculously fast or shifty. If we take someone six foot two or above it is because they are physical and can win a fifty-fifty battle for the ball in the air. Of course everyone needs to be able to block. Most corners are more susceptible to one type of receiver or the other so we can substitute for the best match up while most defenses leave the same corner on the field because they are the starter.

When Johnson said "he wouldn't play with all of those recruits coming in" did he mean they will play while he will sit on the bench or did he mean you won't play next to them because you are 26 and ready to play while they redshirt so relationships with players in your class aren't as important?

For what it's worth, count me in the group who would rather take Bruce and leave out Burns or Harrison, even a last minute questionable DT. Also, though our offense has changed since the Gators won championships, I think it is at its absolute strongest when having a very dynamic H, a power run game, and a varied passing game that both stretches the field and throws effective screens and "spread" plays.  Without Elliott, I'd like to see us get an H more involved this year, it will make the job easier for whoever wins the running back job.

It always seems like players like Kierre get on the field sooner than some of their "flashier" counterparts. He has been thinking about blocking as much as catching passes, while other receivers have probably just been dreaming about catching touchdowns. Noah Brown played as a freshman in the same role he described, so I see no reason Kierre can't do the same.
