On a positive note, Denard finished the game with 122 yards today including that explosive 67 yarder that was incredible to see in person. This brings his career total to 4,395 yards--just 85 yards short of Pat White's 4,480 with a bowl game left to play. I know a few weeks ago it looked like a lost cause, but I now think he has a great shot of doing it.
Anyways, just trying to bring some happiness to the board and I didn't see this posted yet.
As a side note, chill out people. Please. Yell at your cat or punch a pillow instead. Don't give these guys any more satisfaction than they already have.
so Nick Saban coached for years at Michigan State with a 34-24 record. Then he went to LSU and became a god, going 48-16. with a national title.
He jumps to the Dolphins, where he goes 9-7 and then 6-10.......at which point, he jumps back to Alabama, where he goes 55-12 with 2 National Championships.
So Nicky poo is no great shakes, except when he is SEC. What gives?
Do you think he couldnt win with equal talent (even MSU has significantly higher standards than any SEC school, so no bringing in truckloads of JUCO stars), but the SEC' s low academic standards allow him to stockpile superior talent?
Lets face it the SEC lets the bullshit fly. Cam Newton and Fairley each spent about one semester attending classes at Auburn, but were "juniors" when they left after their championship season.
So I was starting to think about the attendance for this game and how it might compare to the record setting game against UConn. I feel like we should be able to break it again as there could be more away fans than the first game. Is it possible to approach 115,000?!?!
This is a going to be a great game against a big rival (3rd biggest?), what does the MGoCommunity predict for numbers?
I say north of 114,000.
I know, it's way to early to speculate. Either way, who do you think will have a better record in '09 between Michigan and Notre Dame?
I think it's a toss up. Michigan will be improved and probably around 7 to 8 wins and Notre Dame can't get any worse with that talent. We both have easier schedules too, including we get them at home year.
I always measure our record up against ND becasue I don't want to lose the overall winning percentage... that's my ace in the hole when I argue with fans from ND, OSU, etc.
