“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Dear Press Conference Sound Guy, I hate you.
See: Thread Title.
Seriously, this play alone is worth keeping Coach Rod on. It is pure genius, and literally makes me squeal like Dennis Nedry when Dodgson pulls out the Shaving Cream Can. This is totally unfair to opposing defenses and I love, love, love it! It's gotta be hard for Rod/Magee to not call it more often than they do.
Can't wait to see 'the play,' for lack of a better description, in The Shoe a few weeks from now!
I was just thinking about this whole #1 jersey thing and after reading Rich's comments about it:
"I'm not touching no numbers thing."
To me he seems like a coach who doesn't want to single out any players or put them above anyone else. Roy was saying he wants it, and I hope he gets it. Just not sure if RR will ever want that kind of symbolism. My feeling is that while he is here, he is not going to give out that #1 jersey. Wondering what you guys think , and if you think it is a good or bad thing if he doesn't allow it. Is the #1 jersey a thing of the past?
My one off in the thread on Brian's column today wherein I referred to the front right corner of the North End Zone as "Desmond's Corner" got me to thinking:
Historically speaking for Michigan football, which end zone of Michigan Stadium, north or south, has been the site of more classic moments?
North has Desmond's 1991 catch against Notre Dame, Braylonfest, Mercury Hayes against Virginia, and many others I forget.
South has Carter's touchdown against Indiana in 1979, Desmond's punt return against Ohio State in 1991, Woodson's punt return against Ohio State in 1997, Manningham against Penn State in 2005, Matthews against Notre Dame in 2009, and many others.
So, what say you, what case do you make, if you were compelled to choose, north or south?
I am going to be in Indianapolis visiting the fiance' this weekend, and since West Lafayette is only an hour away, I am gonna make the trip to watch the game.
Has anyone ever been there for a Michigan game before? Is it like Indiana where I can easily find tickets for cheap before the game, or will this take a little more effort/planning?
Thanks in advance.
We all know Denard hates to tie his shoelaces but has anyone else noticed he throws the ball using the non-lace side? Is there something we should all know about laces? Maybe Denard and Ray Finkel know something that we don't.
