  1. I get what they're doing, but it looks like they're about to bunny-hop. It looks silly, it's just dumb, but as long as they're having fun I guess...

  2. Really intrigued by Taco. Seems like Michigan hasn't had an elite pass rusher since Brandon Graham. From the looks of his stats, it doesn't seem like he's just a situational pass rusher anymore. With that frame and coaching from Hoke/Mattison, the sky is the limit for this kid.

    Also, his name is Taco. Nuff said

  3. Not trying to be Captain Obvious here... But has anyone wondered if he has a brother/cousin named Enchillada or possibly Gordida Charlton?

  4. Pretty good stats, especially for a non-blowout game. Excited for our depth at rush DE for the next few years.

  5. 16 Tackles, 7 TFL and 4 Sacks in one game for Taco?


  6. That's against really good competition too, Reynoldsburgh is a hood team
