First, great win today! The team looked great in multiple facets. Hoke and crew has got this team firing on all cylinders the last couple weeks.
I am not trying to be negative here, just trying to come up with answers to some questions relative to our FG kicking. The group of guys seated near me today were talking at halftime about how Michigan has struggled with FGs for several seasons now but that how it hasn't cost us at the end of a game. Clearly it hurt us last year during games and changed our strategy but we couldnt think of any last minute losses.
Essentially, we had three questions:
When is the last time we made a 50+ yard FG?
When is the last time we lost because we missed a last minute FG? (Could be Toledo in 08 or App St in 07)
When is the last time we won on a last minute FG? (We came up with Remy Hamilton against ND in 94 - there has to be a more recent one than this).
Would love to know, these arent easy questions to google.
Go Blue! Beat the Bucks!
The differences between the last couple of years are simply amazing. Totals are through eleven games.
Michigan has scored 91.3% of last year's total through eleven games while allowing 46.1% as many points. The turnaround on defense is staggering.
Michigan needs to score 42 points next week to tie 2010's regular season total and average only 28ppg over the next two to eclipse last year's overall point total.
I think after finally letting Denard take every snap...all of our questions got answered pretty quick.
Denard had great flow in moving the ball.
Long sustained drives.
Great 3rd down conversion rate.
Great redzone offense.
Passing looked crisp.
Everything was well balanced.
Let the scientist Borges, quit the experimentation.
Sorry if this is old but I've noticed that all of our defensive signals are from the cooking that Lil B made up, specifically the chopping, stirring and eating. I've also noticed denard and odoms doing this when they score. It must be a swag mentality the team has adopted
