Game Twelve: Michigan 11/18/06
Antonio Bass may be out for the 2006 season. He is a talented young WR who lined up out wide, in the backfield and as an option QB. He definitely is a big loss if indeed he is out.
Wow, that would be a big loss. The co-worker of mine who is a big Michigan fan said that Bass was the WR to watch out for this season more than any other, including Breaston...he raved about the guy.
I think Bass was also going to be the 3rd string QB also.
I think that only leaves Forcier and Henne on the roster...
Carr talks about Bass's injury and the spring.
Given Carr's typical restraint and understatement concerning injuries, I expect Bass will be missing at least some of the season. At worst, he will be able to redshirt.
I think this is a bigger loss at QB, given our poor depth, than it is at WR. Bass wasn't going to beat out Manningham and Breaston and was probably going be in a dogfight with Arrington and Tabb for the #3 spot. I expect Arrington to win with Tabb and his comparable speed to take Bass's spot on reverses and quick WR passes.

If you really want to get under a UM fans skin, point out that they lost to Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, and Nebraska all in the same calendar year. Those are the other four of the five winningest programs in CFB. If you go back to the 2004 season, then the Wolverweenies have also lost to Ohio State (again) and Notre Dame (again), making them 0-6 versus the other four of the five winningest programs in the country in just the last two years.
Just wanted to do my part as a newbie and say,
Just want to get this pic I made out there for when this goes sticky with Texas and the opener.
The Detroit papers confirm Bass's season ending injury. It also appears that "Super Mario" twisted a knee.
What ever happened to Brett Gallimore, the highly acclaimed OL from the 2004 class? He isn't listed anywhere in the depth charts.
#74, he played at right tackle in the Eastern Michigan and Indiana games last year, that's all I can find on him.
And he's listed as 'enrolled in Division of Kinesiology', but you could have guessed that.
He's still on the team, but reportedly he's been passed on the depth charts by the 2005 tackles Zirbel and Ortmann.
Well from the sounds of it, the scUM O wasnt too impressive yesterday in the glorified spring practice, b/c it isnt an actual scrimmage.
Thier O-line could control the D-line.
The Wrs and TEs were dropping balls.
The RB did ok espeically Carlos Brown.
Henne was eratic, but that is kind of to be expected in the spring.
Here is a article from GBW$ about it.
