"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
We have hearf about chris bryants run play abilitiessince he was a freshman but he either needed help in pass pro or has been hurt.
In an intervjew with kenny demens he said bryant was his fav olineman and thet, when he pulled, everhone was scsre. And he means SCARED, even rvb and martin. Hope this dudes healthy
Kalis and Bryant at the Guard positions is my vote, with Kugler at Center, Lewan and Schofield at the Tackles....and just f***ing doze people.

That would be my vote for the gaurds, but if Kugler wins the center spot after only fall camp, then we're in trouble on the line again. I know he's very sound technically, quite large, and has had great coaching so far, but he's still only a high schooler. He's never faced the size, athleticism, and skill of defensive players as he will on the BCS level, and he's not been in an offense as complex as it will be at UM. The center's the 'QB' of the OL, and if we have a true freshman with four weeks of practice win the starting spot, then we're in trouble.
Yeah, that's how I feel. I'd rather have Miller, or, in a pinch, Bars. Someone who's had at least a year to grasp the offense. I think Miller will be able to take the job though, he'll be a RS Sophomore and have had 2 years of experience under Hoke.
I think, and really hope, Miller wins the job as well. He's gotten some good buzz the last two years, and Molk really liked him. I think he has been struggling with putting on the weight; heard he was a bit too small. I've got to think that going into his third year now, he's got be getting to proper size.
Kugler has been vocal about preferring a redshirt; I'd be surprised if he wasn't.
I heard all the incoming olinemen will be redshirting except for Bosch.

I agree except I'd prefer to have Miller or Bars at OC
Pretty sure Kugle wants to RS. Plus he is coming off shoulder surgery.
I'd rather have miller at C. I think I read Bars has taken some reps at C as well.

I wouldn't doubt this at all.
I still wouldnt be surprised to see Bosch rs too. They still redshirted Kalis despite depth issues.
Oh it wouldnt surprise me, but that is just what I heard.
Yeah, depends how some of the walkon guys do. If they are solid, Bosch will probably go RS as well. Wonder if he will be like Kalis last year; ready to play, prefer to RS.
I generally want ANY kid to rs, but with tbe numbers we have coming in, if bosch can play they should let him play. I think kt will help us out more in the future if we can give this kid some reps in games.
Pipkins looking positively svelte.
I'm surprised no one else mentioned this, but I saw someone spoke to dymonte and he is loving his time at michigan. But whats interesting is michigan told him they would be trying him out at nickel and boundry corner to see how he plays in space.
This is very interesting. I'm not sure though, that they are really interested in him staying there. Maybe they see him playing early and want to intoduce him to more coverage to prepare him to compete in fall at safety. Thats opinion but all I can think of
This is not all that uncommon, and even RR was planning on doing this with Demar Dorsey. Playing CB relys much more on instincts and athleticism, whereas safety requires a lot more diagnosing, calling alignments, and anticipation aquired over time. Probably the reason you often see true fresman make impacts at CB, but rarely at safety.
I personally like it. We really need some bigger corners, and both Dawson and Stribling need some time in the weight room before they'll handle the rigors of B1G play. I think the coaches also mentioned doing this with Delano Hill. Both are 6'+ and both have legit speed (especially Thomas). Now it remains to be seen in either have the hips, acceleration, and change of direction to play corner, but if one or both does, that would be a more than welcome surprise. I have to think that Thomas' long term place is not a situational nickel corner. He may get time there this year, but he needs to be on the field most every down if he develops as anticipated.
If it works, it means he could be ELITE.
If it doesn't work, he moves back to safety.
This is win-win.
Its interesting nontheless.
I'm not sure he could cover the shiftier wr's. But he could line up with the larger receivers in the league to blanket them
Well, Charles Woodson was a big time running back out of Ohio, and Dymonte Thomas is also a big time running back out of Ohio...so by scientific analysis, it can only be concluded that Dymonte Thomas will win the Heisman as a CB.
Not only is that hilarious , but it brings up a great point. I wonder how their measurables compare coming into college?
