I don't think Woods will catch Nicklaus, but even if he does, I don't think he's the greatest ever. Woods and Nicklaus played in different era's, Nicklaus wasn't playing in all these smaller tourneys, the clubs and balls used today are making some tough courses obsolete when you can almost drive a par 4. Also, Jack has MANY more top 5 or top 2 finishes in majors(dunno the exact number) which to me means he was the far more consistent golfer. Jack will always be the greatest in my mind, and i'm a Michigan fan. Doesn't matter where he went to school.
Thats silly Jourdan Lewis was an All American
I wasn't at the Spring "game" for Michigan, but several reports around here say Michigan's Dbs struggled in coverage against some of the speedy young receivers. So alot of the same that we saw late last year. The X factor is obviously Daxton Hill, but coming in as a true Freshman safety to me is harder than say a CB. If he can catch on quick he will definitely help, Michigan hasn't had a truly elite safety in eons.
I'm sorry but if any scout watching Poole in the second half of the season can't be impressed with him. No doubt he's one of the few players for Michigan that can create his own shot, but every game down the stretch he would do things that made you shake your head. Especially in the Tourney he was pretty bad. Brazdekis doesn't have NBA range, anytime he tried a deep shot off the dribble he missed badly. With the new rule sure it's worth looking into, but in my opinion both of these guys need another year at Michigan.
As great of a game Aubrey Dawkins had, the alley oop he mishandled would've had UCF up 6, and then obviously the tip in at the end. Maybe it was because Aubrey used to be a Wolverine, and anything Michigan can't ever beat Duke lol.
I thought he meant in the pros.
Cmon really? I get it but you're way off. Brandon Graham, Ty Law, Woodson, and lots more that had solid careers.
Ya look at Rashan Gary. He runs fast but barely makes plays on the field.
In fairness to Patterson, last season was his first full season as a starter. He only played like 10 games at Ole Miss and they were terrible. Patterson certainly has not matched the hype, but he can improve going into his 2nd full season as a starter. I still like Mccaffrey over him even at this point.
One thing that is really annoying is all the cliches Michigan uses. There's not another team in the country that does those things.
Stanley is right, until we actually see the difference on the field, i'll remain skeptical.
Patterson needs to work on his vision and standing in the pocket instead of always taking off. This is why I want to see Mccaffrey start but I highly doubt it will happen. He throws a nicer deep ball and is taller/stands in the pocket better IMO.
The kid from California(forgot his name) should bring more of the "speed in space" from the slot. Believe his name is Jackson don't feel like looking it up. Anyways, I feel like from top to bottom this is one of Michigan's most talented group of recievers ever. They've usually had 1 great reciever and then a bunch of role/possession type guys. Right now they have 3 legit guys that can make big plays.
I am skeptical Michigan will do what OSU was doing with Haskins last year. You're not going to see Patterson throwing the ball 40-50 times in any game. I feel like they should do that as that's the obvious strength. But there's no way in hell Harbaugh abandons the run that much.
Zach Charbonnet, considered by some to be closer to a 5-star RB. Michigan hasn't had great luck with their recent high profile RBs. He's missing the spring already getting his knee scoped.
I agree Blu, I would hope Harbaugh would realize the strength of this offense is the passing game. Harbaugh's offense didn't feature the best position group on the team. The slot guys were non existent. Nico Collins was considered 3rd best WR on the team yet he was consistently making plays against the Buckeyes last year. Would love to see a 3 or 4 wide receiver spead type attack and Patterson(preferably Mccaffrey IMO) throw the ball more than 20 times a game.
Michigan is always hyped up. Everything sounds good about Gattis opening this offense and "speed in space" etc....But i'm taking the wait and see approach against solid defense. If Don Brown doesn't tweak the defense it'll be more of the same against OSU as well. Regardless of Daxton Hill and Ambry Thomas bringing more speed to the secondary.
This is basically Michigan's best chance to finally get a win. Not just because of Meyer leaving, but Michigan was not beating Dwayne Haskins. Now, I don't have much faith in Shea Patterson, i'd honestly rather see Dylan Mccaffrey start. If Gattis really has full control of this offense it could be pretty explosive, because Michigan has one of the best WR groups they've ever had IMO.
He was just the D-line coach. It was Don Brown's scheme that got torched. Michigan's D-line had a good day against the Bucks in 2016.
Look, I understand OSU fans are not happy about bringing in a Michigan coach that was part of the defensive fiasco against the Buckeyes. Bottom line, Mattison is a great recruiter with a ton of experience at big time programs and in the NFL. Ask Urban what he thinks of him, he was at Florida with him. It doesn't say he is the next DC. Reports are behind the scenes Harbaugh's program is a dumpster fire and letting Mattison go to me makes absolutely no sense.
I know Michigan has sucked, but they've done well recruiting on the D-line, and defensive players in general. Now that wasn't all Mattison's doing, but I don't think the age thing is as big a factor as you believe.
I know Mattison is old but how exactly would he be a recruiting detriment? The guy has coached everywhere NFL included, kids know he knows what it takes to play at the next level.
It's a rumor up here in Michigan that seems to have legs. My brother text me about it he said multiple sources are saying it.
Nordin didn't get booted. It was reported he was booted in practice yet he was on the sideline during the game. Losing starts rumors, the only truth is Harbaugh is a stubborn, clueless clown.
Winovich delayed surgery to play in that game, wasn't that effective but did have 3 TFLs. There's an article where he supposedly admits the whole "mirage" and Michigan "building a powerhouse" was to get Dax Hill to recommit. He's a warrior, but also said and did some pretty dumb stuff.
