Now that Ty Isaac has said he’s coming to Michigan, let the over-analysis of his mostly garbage-time carries begin. Isaac only had four carries to run out the clock against Hawaii and Boston College when Lane Kiffin was fired in the parking lot after game five. He didn’t play in four games, he had one carry for one yard against Notre Dame, three touches for minus one yard against Oregon State and one carry for two yards against Stanford before playing more in blowouts against Cal, Colorado and Fresno State in the bowl game.
If you read mgoblog’s Hello post, you probably saw the Cal highlights and went “Wow”, but they aren’t very representative of his freshman season. And while 11 carries for 87 yards and two TDs is solid even against a really bad Cal defense, keep in mind that Javorius “Buck” Allen had 135 yards and two TDs on just six carries. If it sounds like I’m telling you not to be excited about another five-star TB on the roster, I’m not. When you watch the video, you’ll see flashes of blue-chip talent. I just don’t think he had many chances to break a sweat last year.
