My thought exactly. Tae will take time to develop at safety and time to develop at WR as well, but needs less time at WR.

I’m not the biggest fan of Gilbert’s tape at WR. With the 4 freshman from the 23 class along with Cam Williams, Saldate and Tae in this scenario from the 2024 class I would love to see Gilbert begin his ND career at safety.

Idk Micah’s feelings on the topic, but I imagine in the portal era a position change is a tough sell

Him not getting a bump on 247 was v surprising. He’s a baller. Won’t find many that move like him at his size.
All of his film's have been impressive, Cam has the star power of the class, but I think both Micah and Cam will play next season just like Greathouse and Flores have this season as freshman.

I’m not giving up on any of our young receivers but Chansi better start earning his paycheck and coach these kids up better and tyree.

This… never expected our wr play to be this bad with Hartman and our running game forcing teams to load box

The WR play was good until we had guys out for injury I’m not blaming that at all on Chansi

I am 50/50 on this. How come other coaches can get more out of their players? And I mean country wide. Chansi is in his second season and the freshman look good. But I don’t see much improvement in the other receivers. They were all 4 stars. You can’t tell me they just didn’t pan out.

And some of it is in the offensive play calling. Not getting the ball to receivers on quick slants, not being able to run easy screens, it an issue at ND.

I think it’s a combo of injuries, bad play calling and guys being drained from playing 4 night games in a row it’s easy being Michigan playing cupcakes every weekend and putting up huge numbers

I agree with you, players getting injured is not on Chansi.

We do need a WR to set up, that's on the players, you can't coach leadership. Our WR group has had the opportunity this season.

Something else I don’t understand, our passing defense is pretty good. How do they not make adjustments in practice going against these guys?

Maybe the commits were given a heads up about this and know who the next coach will be

Good to see clips of WRs getting open and not having to make miraculous jump ball catches that don't happen in games. Even if they were against our 3rd string DBs.

Apparently hes been a stud in spring who woulda thought. We should have an abundance of riches at WR this year should be zero excuses. I'd like to see us rotate 6-7 guys without a drop off. Harrison, Mitchell, Collings, Colzie, Thomas, Faison, Greathouse, KK Smith, Gilbert, Williams, Saldate. I'm guessing Saldate Redshirts. My prediction is your top 3 WR's will be Mitchell, Thomas, and Faison, with Greathouse right behind.

I think Harrison, Mitchell, Thomas, Faison, Greathouse will have consistent roles......... I think Thomas is a lock at the boundary, mitchell field, faison slot.....Freeman said Greathouse can really play all of them.

I'd expect Mitchell/Greathouse at the field, faison/harrison at the slot, and thomas/collins boundary to start the season. Then you see if any of the young guys like KK, gilbert, williams can break though. I think Colzie is going to have a hard time beating out collins for PT.
