The Great Heisman Campaign: Minor v. Van Bergen

Brandon Minor looks to be Michigan’s top running back in 2009. Though he’s had a number of injuries in his career, Brandon hopes to be fully healthy for his senior year, and lead Michigan to a big turnaround. Hopefully, Brandon will be doing a lot of this:

Ryan Van Bergen was the winner of the only upset in the first round of the competition, defeating 4-seed Brendan Gibbons. He’ll start on the defensive line, and looks to anchor the run defense as a strongside defensive end. Last year, backing up Tim Jamison, Van Bergen collected 13 total tackles and 1 pass breakup.

    Perhaps I’m missing something; but it looks like you’ve included the results of Robinson v. Gallon from Round 1 rather than the pertinent poll

    Hey, Tim, why are comments off on the recruiting post? Anyways, just wanted to drop in and say that Demetrius Hart is definitely going to be Blue based on the info relayed to me from my Dr. Phillips roomie(and Ricardo’s good friend). Kid’s apparently freaky deaky fast.

    Austin White evaluation I found not too favorable…

    “However, he is not a burner with a great second gear or overly explosive. For a bigger high school back he goes down frequently on first contact and legs can go dead when wrapped up. At times, his high running style hinders his balance, running strength and ability to avoid trip-up tackles. Durability could be an issue at the next level as well if he does not run more behind his pads.”
