If I was better at computers, or for that matter, if I did not still refer to things like this as "computers," I would post some side by side images of their runs or do something else awesome like that. Since the best that I got is "computers" and nothing more, I am just going to ask the question without some failed link or anything else. Has anybody else noticed that Braxton Miller appears to run like a 3.6 forty? It may be that he is just better at putting himself in the position to show straight line speed or that his offense does so for him, but he seems to accelerate faster than Denard and when he tops out I am not sure there is anybody faster in the country. I knew he was quick but I am watching the second half replay of Nebraska v. Ohio and I be like dang. Denard may be a more consistent and reliable runner, but he may be the second fastest quarterback in the conference.
Noticed yesterday during the game JT's dreads weren't flowing out of the back of his helmet. Did he shave them? #dreadgate2012
MUST GO EDIT NCAA 13 ROSTER NAOW
EDIT: Thanks mzerbib-
My dog JT cut the dreads!
[Great win yesterday, and I'm obviously very happy, but in true Wolverine fashion, I need to find something to complain about. ;)]
I'm worried about Fitz. Previously I'd chalked this up to changes in the O-line, particularly the loss of Molk. And he did look good in the 2nd half against ND. But more and more I'm convinced its something else. I mean, Denard is running just fine, and when Rawls came in yesterday he tore it up (albeit in garbage time). Do you think:
A. Fitz has lost a step
B. Defenses have committed to him, in a way they didn't last year
C. He's not getting the right playcalls
D. No, it really is the O-line
if you think it's A, then I have to ask why? Is it an outgrowth of getting suspended, or something else? If B, what is it they are doing? If C, what kind of run plays should he be getting. And if D, where exactly is the problem and why is this only affecting the RBs?
Also, do you think it's time to start Rawls and see how that goes, or should we stick with Fitz?
Note: I have no predetermined views of what the answer is
After yesterday's 235 yard rushing performance, Denard's path to breaking Pat White's QB rushing record has become a bit clearer. To break the record in the seven guaranteed games we have left, #16 must average 82.14 yards per game on the ground.
Pat White- 4,480 yards
Denard Robinson- 3,905 yards
EDIT: If we get to a bowl game, the average drops to: 72 yards/game. If we make it to the Big Ten championship game (and a bowl), it drops to 64 yards/game.
I haz sad.
Football team wins and wins big on the road. Denard does his Denardy thing and runs for hundredry jilliion zillion yards, Gibbons puts it through the uprights (even when he misses), D is dominant, gets a pick 6 and wins the turnover battle for a change this season.
Yet no glorious front page muppets. No "you can't have one without the other" glorious, wonderful, lovely, Muppets.
Does anyone know why?
Edit: And now I know - it's Purdue (not a Muppet-worthy win)
