"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
Here's the clip to Penn State Vs Michigan from 2005 when Henne to Manningham TD for the win against Penn State. Where were you when this play went down.
Drink up MGoBloggers. Your video for St. Patrick's day is here.
- Showed pretty even snaps for the quarterbacks in the clips. Deveon with a nice truck. Malzone with a nice roll out and chuck to Norfleet.
- Little spotlight on O and D lines.
- Grbac and Carr highlighted. No interviews unfortunately.
- Of note to headgear enthusiasts/WD, Harbaugh is now sporting the adidas version of the Bo hat:
- Really too short of a video. Give us some more footage Ed!
I'd follow Mama G Bush on Twitter, she had some pictures from practice today up.
Edit: Angelique posted some video of Baxter's interview. Talks about the academic gameplan. Hope we get to hear more about the Bomb Squad.
Alan Branch played in only his second game for the Patriots, after a quick intro to a complex defense and not having played in a long time. But he is already getting praise as one of two "big defensive tackles (who) helped control the line of scrimmage"…."making the Colts one-dimensional and holding their RB’s ..to four yards on 14 attempts. That’s absolutely unreal, and it’s as big a reason for the win as any. Credit …Alan Branch (and others)."
FYI, here's a more detailed article on Alan’s journey from MI through the NFL. He said that before signing with the Pats, he “had a couple (Michigan) friends that tried out for the team and met [Bill] Belichick [before]." They told him 'Don’t pay attention to [perception of him].' They kind of said he had a Lloyd Carr approach. I enjoyed Lloyd Carr..."
PS In related news from the UM-Patriots connection, Giselle recently shot down rumors that ex-UM QB Tom Brady was renting out their pretty amazing $14 million NYC condo for a mere $40,000 a month ($42,500 furnished). Yes, it sounded too good to be true. :-)
I hope all of you appreciate now how DIFFICULT it is to win 8 to 10 games, win/compete for B1G championships, and go to a bowl game EVERY YEAR!
Coach Carr was pushed out by people (this site included) who thought any idiot off the street can do what Carr did year after year. After two coaches and too many embarrassing loses later, we all know the truth now.
Coaching football in NCAA is hard. Not very many people are good at it. It is difficult even when you have the enormous resources that this great university can provide.
I hope you remember that for the next coach and beyond.
Lloyd Carr just rode by in a red classic convertable with Lynn Swan and Orlando Pace in the Rose Parade. Evidently he is being inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame.
