"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
SIAP? I saw the interview video yesterday but not this:
Today I walked with my kids to the local mall. At the Hallmark shop the workers were setting up this year's Christmas ornament display (already yep). I saw Michael Oher, the Ghostbusters doughboy (Charlie Weis?) and Darth Vader with a Santa hat on. Then, I saw that Charles Woodson has been honored with an ornament. He's wearing his Packers uniform, but who cares? Get the best CB in Michigan history on your tree. According to the salesperson, they go on sale this Sunday, but you can reserve them now.
Have a look:
I’m trying to understand the difference between field corners and boundary corners to understand whether Michigan’s current abundance of field corners (Countess, Avery, Taylor, Hollowell, T Richardson) and lack of boundary corners (Talbott + freshman in 2013) makes much of a difference after this year. For 2012, it seems that Floyd should be fine as the primary boundary corner.
What I’ve learned so far is that the boundary corner plays the short side of the field and the field corner plays the wide side of the field. Also, typically the better of the two corners play the field corner. The field corner tends to have more coverage responsibilities while the boundary corner has more run responsibilities.
My hunch is that this isn’t a big deal and that if you’ve got 2-3 corners or more that can cover you should be ok. It seems that the strengths of the field/boundary corners can be accomodated by which safety plays deep. If the field corner can cover but not play the run, then the safety on his side plays closer to the line of scrimmage. Same goes for the boundary corner. Even if both corners struggle against the run, you can still bring one safety up and play 8 in the box to stop the run.
It seems to me if Courtney Avery (or Taylor, Hollowell or Richardson) is better in pass coverage, but not as stout against the run as Talbott then we’d want Avery and Countess starting at the corners in 2013. What about Countess? Do we play him at the boundary corner in 2013?
Another question, which was Charles Woodson’s primary position? He had the size to play boundary corner, but he was clearly our best DB so that would push him toward field corner. I suspect he played both depending on where the other team’s best receiver was.
Can someone help me out?
Didn't see this posted anywhere, but this is gonna be a little confusing. So there's the Sun Bowl in El Paso, and no there is the VALLEY OF THE Sun Bowl. It is still keeps it's B1G-Big 12 tie in.
Another change is the Champs Sports Bowl (ACC vs SEC) becomes the Russell Athletic Bowl.
Also is in the Phil Steele magazine if anyone doesn't believe Wikipedia.
Here is your 2016 schedule as of right now-
|9/10||at Notre Dame|
|12/3||B1G Championship Game|
With a pretty tough schedule being on the road at notre dame wisconsin, nebraska and ohio, Michigan needs a lighter non-conference schedule this year I think. Colorado is already your respectable BCS conference opponent. I think Michigan should open up the year against EMU, because they are going 5 years without playing a school down the road. I also would like to see Michigan bring in Texas State. A school who is new to Division I-FBS this season, would be cool to see a new team come into The Big House.
However though, another team I want a shot at is Toledo. Bring them on.
