    Ejim Update

    Ditched the crutches and walking without much pain or swelling. Sure seems to be ahead of the original timetable.

    Re: Ejim Update

    I saw him walking around at the exhibition, he looked like he was walking and moving just fine. Obviously doesn't it mean anything, but it's a good sign he'll be here sooner rather than later

    Man I would love to see him back for the Michigan game but I'm sure that is way too hopeful on my part. We can definitely beat them either way but having Melvin back would make me feel very confident!

    Re: Ejim Update

    I dont think anything good comes out of rushing him back to play Michigan. There are 18 games in 2014 that matter a lot more than that 1 in December. I hope even if he is feeling better that they dont push it and get him reinjured.

    I don't know, I'd consider beating or taking Michigan to the buzzer being a pretty good thing.

    Rest easy, I'm sure Fred's not willing to risk his senior year and the season on one game.

    Agreed and I've said since his injury was first reported that it's better he got hurt now rather than December or January but I'd still be pretty pumped to see him tear **** up against last years runner up. His injury COULD wind up being a real positive down the road though. If we can establish ourselves without him, just imagine how strong we'll be when he comes back!

    Re: Ejim Update

    I think we are capable of winning without Ejim. And the experience we get now will just make us better when we get Ejim back.

    We play Michigan in November.

    The tourney committee really values non conference resumes a lot and even without that, Michigan will be a top 5 opponent on our schedule this year and easily the best non conference team. Having Ejim back would be huge, especially to help build the team's confidence if we win.

    Re: Ejim Update

    Is this really a debate? I'm sure Fred has Ejim's and the teams best interest at heart. If the dr/trainers say he is good to go for Michigan, great. If there is any risk of further injury I'm sure he won't play. Does anyone have anywhere close to enough knowledge of the situation to say anything beyond that?

    One of you students should be giving Melvin a piggy back ride around campus to make sure it heals well.

    Re: Ejim Update

    I'd love it if he was able to come back to practice before Michigan but Fred keeps saying that he isn't ready and won't play the game. Then Fred inserts him into the starting lineup at the last minute. Hilton would explode when they announce the starting lineup.

    Well you've just killed everything but half the Off Topic Forum with that logic.

    What else would there be beyond that? That is the whole situation. Will he be healthy enough to play without risking injuring it again? And how healthy does he have to be to not have to worry about injuring it again? That's all there is.
