Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — OK — Getting Closer — Part III
Here is part III 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.
To make sure competition is fair you see the coaches use many kids on the first group. For example one group of plays Wormley played on first team, another set of plays you may see Strobel. There were times Q-Wash played with first group and other times you saw Pipkins.
My sense is this will continue for at least another week and a half, but by the week from this upcoming Saturday I think the first and second groups will be more refined.
2) Another obvious observation is this is the biggest team across the board I have seen at Michigan for over 10 years.4) Hoke really coaches his position group hard and his favorites in terms of getting some “additional attention” is Pipkins with Henry being a close second.
5) Maybe its me, but I think Rawls has really looked good at RB. Now it could be he sees this as his last chance to make an impact, he simply cannot afford to have Green and Smith both pass him up. So he is really competing and sees to be much more comfortable in this offense. He is tough to tackle.
6) Another sleeper player who has made major strides is Clark (the safety). He is playing on seconnd team and is doing well. Delano Hill also is getting snaps with second group.
8) Gardner is playing with some renewed confidence, Morris has shown flashes with his arm, but lets hope Gardner stays healthy or we are going to see some old style “Lloyd” ball where they play ultra conservative and hope to win the game in 4th quarter.
12) UM has some what I would call NFL talents, our OT’s, Gardner of course, but when you watch practice you cant help but think that Fuchness is going to have a big time career in football (as long as he continues to progress).
