2009 TSUN News (football only discussion)

    All I Want for Christmas...

    A Michigan family of football supporters head out one Saturday to do their Christmas shopping. While in the sports shop the son picks up an Ohio State jersey and says to his older sister, "I've decided to become a Buckeye fan and I would like this for Christmas".

    His big sister is outraged by this and promptly whacks him round the head and says, "Go talk to mother"; and off goes the little lad with the Ohio State jersey in hand and finds his mother.

    "Mom?"

    "Yes son?"

    "I've decided I'm going to be a Buckeye fan and I would like this jersey for Christmas". The mother is outraged at this, promptly whacks him around the head and says, "Go talk to your father!"

    Off he goes with the Ohio State Jersey in hand and finds his father.

    "Dad?"

    "Yes son?"

    "I've decided I'm going to be an Ohio State fan and I would like this jersey for Christmas". The father is outraged and promptly whacks his son around the head and says, "No son of mine is ever going to be seen in THAT!"

    About half an hour later they're all back in the car and heading towards home. The father turns to his son and says "Son, I hope you've learned something today?" The son says, "Yes, Dad, I have."

    "Good son, what is it?"

    The son replies, "I've only been an Buckeye fan for an hour and I already hate you Michigan bastards!!"

    He saw a Barwis!!!!!11!1!!!eleventy!!! workout and decided it was too cold?
    Wherever he ends up is paying him (more)?
    There are other recruits who fit the system better?

    Looking back at who all is graduating from particular schools, I noticed that the skunkbears are graduating RBs Brandon Minor, Carlos Brown, and Kevin Grady. Whatcha think TSUN fans? Are Mike Shaw and Vince Smith gonna be ready to take TSUN to better places next year, or are you guys a little worried about your potential backfield next year?

    I didn't realize that that was Minor's last year. Kid played with a lot of heart.

    Vincent Smith will do just fine, if he can stay healthy. Denard, Gallon & Gardner can also tote the rock. I don't think ball carriers will be a big problem.

    Question is: who will block for them?

    Agree they have guys that can run well and stay healthy if someone protects them......

    Doubt anything will come of this, but it has the mgoblog site a little worried:

    RR will need outstanding negotiations to make TN happen. Section 4.04(a) of his UM contract (page 9) calls for RR to pay UM $4 million if he terminates his contract with UM in contract year 3 which ends 12/31/2010. RR has a home and mortgage in WV, a home and mortgage in AA, and would have another home and mortgage in TN. He still owes WVU $1.5 million, and would be required to pay UM $4 million. This is not going to happen without divine intervention.

  13. If I'm not mistaken, they've already got 2 guys in the incoming class who play that position (Paskorz and Wilkins) in addition to last year's best freshmen (Roh). I might be mistaking the Quick and Spinner positions, though (I can't remember all the retarded names that Robinson gives to his linebackers).

    No, you are correct. Paskorz could grow into a DE, but they are definitely recruiting a lot of bodies at the Quick position.

    edit: it doesn't help that the UM sites had them backwards in their posts/articles, for at least a few months after Greg Robinson was hired. Personally, spinner makes more sense as a term for a rush LB imo and a quick sounds like a speed LB/S, but quick does indeed refer to their LEO style position.
     
  15. I thought Wilkins was more or hand-in-the-dirt kind of guy, though (i.e. a light in the pants DE). Either way, it looks like they might finally be trying to address the abysmal depth at DL and LB.
