More Wolverines is always a good thing.

Sure...better for injuries but we can make a list of Michigan draft busts not named Tom Brady and Charles Woodson.

At this point give me the small school guys. Look at the guys from Alabama and OSU they just seem to be broken down by the time they make the league. Used up too much wear and tear. Maybe those smaller school guys don’t get beat up in practice and tough competition over the years and are fresher.

Zeke, Ted Ginn, Micheal Thomas, Orlando Pace, Nick Mangold, Mike Nugent, and a couple dozen others beg to differ.

Stop making sense.  So funny reading the "don't take players from this school" posts.  As if these guys are genetically linked because they went to the same school.........or ARE they?  Hey, I like a good conspiracy theory!

 

BTW, you can add ol Cris Carter to that list.  He had a "pretty good" career.

Sure OSU and Alabama etc have lots of stars over the years...they put tons of guys in the league. I think we were all just saying we have been snake bitten with them. Kinda tongue in cheek....it’s a little disturbing though how many for us have had injury issues. Maybe because we take a ton of B1G school players being in the Midwest but it’s definitely getting old. That said I still wouldn’t turn down Chase Young or any top player from OSU...just we have terrible luck.

I’m pretty sure we all mean it as a joke...but some college coaches just seem to send used goods to the NFL. Take Alabama lineman and linebackers for example. Too often Saban gets all he can out of them and then they come to the league already used up physically it seems. Conspiracy maybe...but I can see where it comes from.

In fairness, likely has to do with the fact that the Big 10 and SEC are easily the most physical of the P5s. Also factor in that both schools get a good % of the 5 star guys that could end up starting early, putting more miles on the tread. 

 

Same concern with a guy like Taylor from Wiscy. Really hope the tires have miles left on them.

Got that, but as far as Malik, I think he only played for two years, and was never really injured at OSU.  
 

And I don’t think Parris ever missed a game in college.  Receivers aren’t like RBs or D players.  They’re not in a ton of plays where they’re getting smashed.  OSU usually has so many great WRs, they don’t have to feature one guy.  
 

Sometimes stuff happens, and it doesn’t matter where you played your college ball.

What's the common denominator of our two big injuries this week?

(Malik Hooker and Parris Campbell)

 

Every time we draft a Buckeye, they're cursed from day one.

 

Just sayin.

I have been a colt fan since 1975.  This is so true...From Art Schlichter -Anthony Gonzalez and Now Hooker and Campbell. This schools draft picks have never worked out in a colts uniform for the most part.

Actually, that was the concern with him coming into the league.  He was seen as fragile and that is probably why he slid to #15. Ballard took a chance and it didnt work out

Yep, torn ACL.

 

There were so many season-ending injuries to prominent players this past weekend. :(I believe that not having offseason practice may have contributed to some of these injuries we are seeing.

    • This is such nonsense and you know it is nonsense. Who the hell is Rob Demovsky(an Aaron Rodgers loyalist trying to keep Rodgers with the Packers) and why should I take his opinion on Love over what I've seen of him and numerous others have seen of him pre-draft... and what made the Packers trade up for him. Accuracy was never a major knock on him. When kept clean he was acutally one of the most accurate QBs in college football. It was his  decisionmaking that he was dragged for. "nothing [Love] has shown, at least publicly, would suggest he's ready to replace Rodgers". Now ask yourself what has Rob Demovsky seen publicly of Jordan Love? He's seen NOTHING... or close to nothing since camp. He's seen about as much of him as Kevin Bowen and Stephen Holder and me and you have seen of Jacob Eason... NOTHING. I would bet you he's not seen more than about 20-30 throws Jordan Love has made since entering the NFL and that's in a practice setting.    And since you are calling me out by name for things I've never said I would like to point out that I never said he would be the "second coming of Mahomes". When I'm throwing out comparisons I've said multiple times that I'm doing a stylistic/traits comparison and not an expectation of similar or better success. So yes... Jordan Love plays incredibly similar style to Mahomes, but there are obviously reasons why he wasn't drafted no.1 or hell even no. 10 where Mahomes went.    And one more thing - Jordan Love very well might bust. The reasons for that could be many. Either way... it won't be my first miss and it won't be my last miss. What was the point of that snarky call out though? NFL GMs miss on about 50% of their early round picks and 70-90% of their mid-late round picks... I promise you I won't be better than them and I have no illusions about it. I'm here to have fun and talk Colts and football,including draft prospects.  with other Colts fans. I don't think this type of snark is helpful though.       
    • From Brady’s media availability today:        
    • I wouldn't sweat it. There are folks that are realistic that realize that without a player involved, the Lions will get a first rounder at least for Stafford. Like with Buckner for 4 years, giving up a 1st rounder for 4 years at least of quality QB play, if the Colts feel they will get it after their evaluation of Stafford, is a no brainer to me.    If we are getting Carl Lawson in FA and are rostering Houston, Lewis, Turay and Banogu, I would rather go for a WR in Round 3. We might get a quality one then.  Also, a LB on Day 3 would be nice. 
    • I read that Kansas City is 19 million over the salary cap, so they will have to make changes within the organization. A few top players will still be there, but the team will lose many to free agency. KC might not be as dominant a year or two from now. Also, other teams will eventually figure out the Chiefs' play calling and adjust accordingly.
