Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — OK — Getting Closer — Part II
Here is part II of a small sample of MaizeMan’s post on the message board. The post was nearly 1,700 words with information throughout.
Again these our opinions and for the people that don’t believe our information … please … Go back and re-read some of our past articles on our site. Every article ever written can be found, our message board posts can all be read and not fall off the page so you cannot read them to see what our staff believes. We stand behind everything we put out. We might not put out information as quickly as others, but we stand behind it when others will flip-flop like a fish out of water weeks, months, and years later.
Some additional thoughts
This is where I think UM is going to be underrated. If anything, our WR core, although not game-breaking types (except Chesson) can catch the ball in traffic. Darboh is a very physical type receiver who can get deep when needed and Chesson even though still very raw in terms of overall experience has shown the ability to catch the ball. Fuchness may have the best hands I have seen in a long time and Butt is very effective in red-zone situations.
My point is UM is no longer one dimensional although teams scheming against UM is going to make Gardner prove it.2) A personal observation about Morris. He is a very outgoing kid, but since practices have started have been much more subdued. Not sure if it just being new to practice pace or someone had a talk with him (maybe Gardner?) Gardner really has taken him under his wing and is teaching him the main adjustment of all college players and that is how to budget their time. In terms of his ability, Morris is a very quick learner and has shown the ability to “get rid of the ball” and is very good at the one pass some QB’s really struggle with and that is the 10-15 yard out route. He also has shown some very nice touch which is something a lot of young QB’s struggle with especially ones with very good arms who are use to just letting the ball go.
It would be great if he could have 2 years under Gardner.
6) One last comment, not sure how you want to handle this, but this years “Campbell” award or the kid who comes to UM and really needs to work and compete, David Dawson. Very athletic,but (and this is an opinion only) he may be better off if he can prove to coaches he can play OT. Next year when we lose both OT’s I fully expect Braden to move to OT. By that time, Kalis will be solid at RG and probably one of our best OL’s right now even though he is a freshman, Bosch will be tough to beat at LG. So you have an OT position open with Mags really the only one who may be ready and Mags is a very good pass protector, but having issues getting off the ball. Dawson needs to learn how to compete and work.
