    To say RR needs to win big next year is an understatement, dude's job is on life support.

    Murphy to Maryland | mgoblog
    DE Murphy was the lowly recruited teammate of blue-chip CB Tony Grimes. They were a package deal likely headed to Michigan (most big schools didn't offer Murphy), then assistant coach Hopson left Michigan. That shook up Grimes (who was a UM lock). That makes this rumor very interesting.

    ...

    UM rivals is now reporting that Grimes has dropped michigan.

    6'6" 210 lbs Davion Rogers (2010 LB from Warren Harding) has committed to Michigan.

    This is the second DL RR has stolen from WVU this year.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello: Davion Rogers | mgoblog

    Lengthy scouting report. Here are a few highlights:
    The main reason for his low rankings despite the potential is the fact that he's a tweener right now. He weighs as much as a safety but projects as a defensive end or outside linebacker, which means he won't contribute right away.


    He is reminiscent of Shawn Crable, though he might [ed: must] have thicker legs and is starting out of high school at much lower weight (205 or less against Crable's 230ish). Buckeye Planet has a Harding insider named "Worm02" who cites Crable in his assessment of Rogers' talent:

    Demar Dorsey* visited UM & cousin Denard, had a good time despite the cold**. Visiting FSU next and has replaced UF visit on 1/26 with USC. Committed but unsure where he'll play :lol:

    * Demar is "committed" to Florida and played in the UnderArmour All-Star game.
    ** UM was fortunate FL had a cold spell & Demar came north during a warm spell, distorting the contrast, which he regarded as minimal.

    jwins,

    What will happen, in your esteemed opinion, regarding scUM's QB situation? With Tate, Denard, and Gardner in the mix (and maybe Nick Sheridan, if he's still there?!), there's bound to be some QB controversy brewing, no?

    It Tater Tot keeps getting hurt, or if they keep having meltdowns like they did after beating Indiana this past season, or if Rodriguez feels a great deal of pressure to win with his job on the line, what do you forsee for scUM's QB's?

    RR does not have the luxury of opening with a cupcake this year. They start off with UConn (who will likely be favored) & then travel to South Bend. Devin will have to grow up in a hurry if he's going to contribute in those games. I foresee him getting a few drives against UConn, 3-8 plays (not necessarily consecutive) sprinkled in against ND (unless he's rolling and tate is stumbling, I doubt it's many more).

    Now that Devin Gardner has enrolled early, I think that spells doom for Denard Robinson. Denard is an explosive athlete but could not even learn to run the read option very effectively, let alone prove to be a legitimate passer. He has the arm to do it, but with his inability to see over the line and his iffy accuracy, he is a wildcat QB at best right now. He will land as a slot and/or occasional RB imo.

    Tate will definitely start the year as the starter, but if Tate:
    - Continues to struggle to stay healthy, which is likely given his sleight frame, scrambling style & frequency of contact in this offense
    - Does not improve as a designed runner, also likely, as he's a better scrambler than he is a runner
    - Does not improve much at making reads in the read option offense (this is the most coachable flaw he can overcome this offseason)
    - Suffer more losses that are beneath the Michigan program like MSU

    ...then I fully expect to see Devin take over. He'd be best suited to take a redshirt season but RR does not have that kind of time.
