I'll be renting a car and driving up to South Bend on the morning of the 5th and then back on the 7th. Any DC Wolverines want to carpool? Must be willing to split costs and listen to Don Delillo audio books.
(Disclaimer - I didn't see this posted and I can't scroll back in these forum topics.)
Anyway, there is absolutely nothing informative in this team capsule. It is just interesting because Michigan is ranked #20 heading into the season. Don't bother reading it unless you are that starved for MOAR content about the upcoming season:
For fun, here is a Deadspin article on the accuracy of these types of polls from last August:
I know some venues will not allow people in if there face is covered. Has anyone ever seen someone in Michigan stadium wearing one of these (or, alternately, turned away)? Thanks.
I found this video to be very informative and interesting. It is a bit long at 21 minutes, but Pete Carroll explains and teaches his "hawk tackling" system.
For the coaches or those with actual football knowledge/experience, is this something that you teach or was taught to you?
Some good news and some bad news for us who are becoming Bo Pelini fans.
Do Due to the super secret Big 10 scheduling algorithm it appears Nebraska is not on our schedule for the next 4 years. (Just noticed this) So the only way to face the Pelini's will be in the Big 10 championship game.
That's a bummer because the programs are on a similar level right now, they have a great fan base, it's 2 good brands, and a high quality football game most of the time. The main positive is it makes it easier to root for the Fighting Pelini's since nothing they do can hurt us - and they can help us by beating heated rivals such as Rutgers and Maryland.
We also only see 1 year of Ferentz in the next 4 years, but he is not quite as fun of a dude.
Hold me Brown Bear.
