Fellow Michigan Fans,
I know that its easy to get caught up in the season with the ever changing win predictions and gripes about play calls and poor defensive play. But I just want to remind everyone to take a second to step back, just for a second, to enjoy what we have in Denard Robinson. Be it his uncanny ability to slip between defender's tackling attempts, his pin point accuracy downfield as he throws darts on the run, or the sheer beauty of his speed as he gallops like a thoroughbred, untouched into the end zone. We are fortunate to have the most exciting player in college football today. And at this pace, quite possibly one of the most exciting ever to play. So take just a second each game this season and over the next three years to step back and enjoy having Denard Robinson. We will probably not see another football player of his kind here in our lifetime.
Here's film from the first four games for in-state recruit for the 2012 class, Matt Godin (6'5", 253/Catholic Central). He loves Michigan, is hoping to get an offer and is also best friends with 2012 DT Danny O'Brien.
Thought you guys may want to see these before the sites update them. I didn't triple check, so if I'm off a yard or two, please let me know...

He's attempted to throw 96 times, and ran 97. How do I hear people call him one dimensional? That seems pretty balanced. He may see stouter defenses, but you can bet he doesn't play 2/3rds of a quarter in any B10 games, barring injury.
Our defense was on the field for 42 minutes and still relentlessly getting after the quarterback at the end of the game. It almost looked like Indiana's offense was the unit getting tired out there..... not our D. This is a team that is in great physical condition and it really showed itself today. Credit goes to our players for busting their arses to get in tip top shape and to Mike Barwis for putting them through the paces.
Most defensive units would have wilted after playing so many minutes. Not our guys.
In a moment of rhapsodic fandom, I whipped up this poster. Shredder will blow it out of the water, obvs, but I wanted to create a thread where we can create stuff with full CC-license for people to print out and leave for strangers to find, a guerilla act of MGoBlogdom if you will. I look to our Ohio and big-city brethren to do yeoman's work on the streets with this.
Caught some Sparty fan complaining about this...
