I assume that this means that Derrick Green will start at RB again this week:
Also Hoke refuses to say whether he will wear long sleeves.
Thilling, I know... but it's news nonetheless. (I mean the former more so than the latter).
So we've got a nice weekend of sports (starting soon) with Michigan playing 2 more basketball games and tomorrow's 2nd to last FB game (aside from bowl) vs. Iowa. I know most of us would consider U-M primarily a football school. Instead of focusing about the seasons in general, for just THIS weekend, what are you more excited to watch?
Personally, I've felt that the past few football games have been frustrating, if not downright painful to watch (like the great diarist about all the 3rd downs, I watched the NW game on delay and accidentally was told that it went into OT, so that helped). I am also still coming off the high of the Final Four and generally feel that this BBall team has more upside right now. I'm more excited to watch hoops, which is not the norm. You?
Upon reading the most recent UFRs, I was thinking... The UFRs are really what got me interested in mgoblog. I know they consume much of Brian's time. But I also know they are a good way for people (such as myself) to learn more about Xs and Os and grading players.
During my time at mgoblog, the football team has been "down" versus their historical level of play. I think it makes the UFRs slanted towards the frustration end of the spectrum, and it left me with a curiosity- what would a UFR look like for a great UofM team? What would it look like if we had UFRs for the 1997 season? What about 1990 or 1991? What would Carr's first two seasons (8-4 seasons) look like?
I guess it's kind of a Meta suggestion for this off season, but reading the breakdown and grading of some of our best years would be interesting. I would love to see how our schemes changed form Bo to Moeller to Carr, and what types of things they deployed.
I know I'm asking a lot.
Do we see more of Derrick Green and Deveon Smith like against NW? Does Kalis replace Bosch?
Progress or Doom?
And of course, FINAL SCORE?
here is the miniprogram for iowa. gotta start getting these up earlier. let me know if there are any changes or comments.
Hey gang, I know this is a long shot but I have found myself in DF for business (and my colleague is by coincidence also an M man). Since it's like the biggest city in the world I figure there has to be some crew that's watching the game down here?
