My smug Notre Dame pal is already insinuating that Michigan's D is suspect due to UConn being able to move the ball. Well, I've got to point out that holding a 300+ lb O-line, which was blocking for a previous 1200yd back and a USC-transfer fullback, to only 138 yds rushing was a good start to the season.
The Michigan D wiping that smug look off my Irish friend's face next weekend would be even better. Go Blue!
Obviously today was an awesome day and many things can be taken from it. I think one of the best is that it was apparent that RR and his staff outcoached Edsall in every facet of the game. They adjusted to us at the end of the first half and we rammed it down their throat at the start of second. Also, that screen pass to V. Smith was a thing of beauty. There is no doubt which team had the better coach today. Hail to the Victors!
This might be reactionary (and yeah, I get the skewed logic in creating a thread on this topic), but can we stop with all of the Tate topics? I am tired of people constantly posting about how he "quit" on this team, how he sucked in the offseason and "good riddance" if he leaves. This is a 19-year-old kid who bled for this team all last year, played through injuries, led them back to respectability, and who was very publicly shown up when Gardner was inserted for Robinson.
I have no idea what is going on in the minds of the coaches and players, but I am fairly certain that everyone on this board's idea of those thoughts are at least partially wrong. And right now, I just want to enjoy a win and get ready for ND.
If you want vent about Tate, do it here. But a whole board filled with questions about Tate leaving doesn't help anybody.
Was there any report on the extent of Carvin Johnson's injury? I didn't hear anything, but hope he's okay.
should have just had his team take a knee at the end there instead of calling multiple timeouts and taking shots at the endzone. IMO, kind of classless. What's to be gained?
Roy Roundtree ended up with -1 yards today. It didn't seem like they threw it his way often. I thought he was ready to break out.
but whatever, we are 1-0!!!
