things go poorly
So anyways, thanks to another blog (http://easterneagles.wordpress.com/ ), I have found myself in posession of a press pass for the EMU games. So I've been given a chance to take some better sports pictures than what I can get from the stands. Anyways, here are some pics from the last two EMU games.
EMU vs. Howard:
EMU vs. Alabama State:
But the cool part is that I will have a press pass for the game on Saturday, so I will be on the sidelines at the Big House. I can't wait for this opportunity.
Good Lord saturdays can be boring...can't wait til football starts, 2 more weeks!
So will a Single Michigan player rush for over 1,000 yards this season? Lets look at the likely canidates
Denard- My choice to be starting QB this year. To get to 1,000 yds a player needs to avg 83 yds a game. Denard is an amazing athlete and even though he's grown as a passer he will still be rushing quite often. In Pat Whites career he rushed for over 1,000 yds twice, can denard do what pat white could?
Rb's- Not even Rich Rod seems to know who the strarting running back will be yet. But I believe at least one back will emerge and be the featured back. I would put my money on Toussaint. But even as a featured back he's carries are gonna be cut into by others like vincent smith. Will Toussaint or others get enough carries to reach the 1,000 yd mark?
I don't believe a single player will rush for 1,000 yds. Denard will come close, but even if he is the starter Tate will get some snaps. For the running backs I believe we suffering from the good problem of having multiple talented backs. I just don't think one player will get enough carries. Our running game is going to be great this year.
So what does everyone think?
To while away the time during the off-season, I put together my top five moments of the RR era. My list has the theme of "our heart is bigger than yours and we're also faster than you are". Feel free to theme your top 5 accordingly.
If I were better at uploading content, each would be accompanied by a video. Unfortunately, a youtube link will have to suffice.
So, without further ado:
5) Denard's first play. Obvious, but it is included for the Denard/Tate manlove that follows the play as well as Tay Odom's flying ninja block on the Western Michigan D-lineman. All heart (henceforth: hart).
4) Brandon Graham knocks Glenn Winston back into 2008, and Glenn begs to be sent back to prison. This hit is amazing on a lot of levels, but the fact that it came so close to the goal-line highlights Graham's hart. He'll be missed. *Unfortunately, neither youtube nor google have this video available.
See also, the Ohio State goal-line stop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQfcytu6ItI (7:14) Again, hart.
3) Tate's two jumping endzone plays against Indiana. I believe dude injured his shoulder either on the first one or prior to it, and he still chucks himself into the endzone for a two point conversion. Dude's got ups. Gritty ups. Hart.
2) RVB's hulk-out in the Indiana game. After making the wrong line-check that helped UM give up the 80-yard TD run, RVB is in on all three plays on the next drive.
1) Tay Odom's block in the 2008 Minnesota game. The highlight of a miserable season. Odoms sprints past a fading Shaw just to put a block on a safety about 50 yards downfield in a season where nothing was going right. Odoms winded himself just for the possibility of putting a block on somebody and helping his running back into the endzone. Hart and speed, but mainly hart.
