How did I see this one coming? As soon as the game was over last nite I jumped on here to see how many people were proposing we trade away our team for Young or Leinhart. Last nite showcased 2 very impressive college quarterbacks....and Young may have given the best single game performance I have ever seen in a college game. Not sure if it ranks #1 (being a Michigan fan I am partial to Charles Woodson's game against Ohio State. ( 1 INT, 1 rec for a TD, 1 KR for a TD, and shutting David Boston out for the game).
Anyway, while both looked very impressive last night, there is no reason to overreact. Just remember, when coach traded up to get Campbell last yr, he knew that Leinhart (and most likely Young) would be coming out this yr. It wasn't enough to persuade him to wait -- he saw what he wanted in Campbell and it is a done deal. And don't tell me that things are different than last yr.....does Leinhart really look that much better now? NO -- last yr he shredded the OU defense just as bad as he did Texas'. Is Vince Young a big surprise? NO -- as any Michigan fan will tell you, his ability was very obvious at last yrs Rose Bowl. So......what has changed since coach drafted Campbell? Absolutely nothing. He got the man he wanted and he already has a yr of the system under his belt. Trade him to start the process all over again when Brunnell will likely be out next yr? I think not.
