Final Stats: 1,597 yards rushing and 25 touchdowns


  1. Has he been playing CB at all? I thought we recruited him as a corner?

    1. I'm guessing he's playing corner, and yes, we recruited him as a corner. Sometimes those statistics are just harder to come by, unless they're making interceptions.

    2. I was thinking the same thing.

    3. Douglas looks small to me...Why aren't we hearing about Kizer, Central's quarterback. Kizer has looked like Gardner the last three playoff games. Also Douglas was not even the best running back on the field, Central's Edwards has the power and speed.

    4. Michigan's coaches have had a chance to offer Kizer, and they haven't done so yet. That's all that seems to be known.

  2. Ross is compiling some nice rushing stats. His yards/play looks consistently excellent. Look forward to seeing a senior highlight tape.

  3. Hey Magnus, know this isn't the forum for this, but what is your biggest concern for next year? my biggest concerns are ol, qb and we, in that order. Weak depth, not elite talent.

    1. Are you talking about recruiting or on the team?

    2. The team in general. Recruiting falls into that category, but I'm talking about the team as a whole.

      I think Lewan is jetting for the draft, so we'll be left with only 3 scholarship linemen who aren't redshirt freshmen, which I think is going to be the biggest problem.

      I don't think Gardner is going to produce at QB, and I'm not the most confident in Ryan Lindley Jr. (Bellomy) or true freshman Morris.

      No elite WRs. Relying on Darboh or Chesson to be something special, unless true freshman LaQuan Treadwell can step in and immediately contribute.

      No real elite RBs.

      Shotty Cornerback depth.

      I am real confident we have ample DL depth, with PeeWee and Q starting on the interior next year. I have unrealistically high expectations for Hurst, because of his athleticism.

      LB depth is set for years.

      Safeties will be fine.

      Your thoughts?

    3. I know I'm not Magnus, but I'd like to discuss.

      Lewan started as a redshirt freshman and was fine. We have 4 very talented redshirt freshman next year, we'll be fine, and they'll make whoever the quarterback is look better. They're going to be surprisingly strong.

    4. Pardon my French, but if you think they're going to be strong, you're an idiot. Jake Long didn't even start at lt freshman year. He started at rt then moved sophomore year. Schoffield is probably going to be the leading contender which makes me nervous because I think he's a liability. Line looks like such: Schoffield, Bryant, Miller, Kalis, Braden/Magnuson. 4 have no starting experience, and the other sucks. No maize and blue glasses can make this line better. I will say coach funk is a great ol coach, but this is asking a lot from him.
