things go poorly
Open thread for tonight's game. There are a lot of Wolverines playing tonight and I wish Edwards, Harris, Henne, and Long a great game.
RR is in year 3 of 6 under his current contract, earning just under 2 million per year. What would it take this year for RR to get a contract extension? And if Michigan were to go to a New Year's Day Bowl and win, what amount of money would you be comfortable paying RR? I personally would like to see his contract extended as long as they go 4-4 in the Big Ten, and continually get better throughout the course of the season. The amount of money depends greatly on the upward projection of this team at the end of the season. Finish 9-3 or better, and I wouldn't mind upping the salary into the 3 million - 3.5 million range. Discuss.
Does anyone else think that we should always take the ball if we win the toss unless it is blowing like a hurricane? I think that we are going to be in a lot of shootouts in the B10(11)(12). Given our offense is based on dilithium and our defense is based on Depends, I think that I want the ball first to try and get ahead in order to stay ahead. Any data out there on this choice. Seems like the usual is to defer especially if the wind is an issue. GIven our kicking game or lack thereof how does this all play out?
I just read on TomVH's twitter that he is not worried about Auburn and the recruitment of Dee Hart. Como? sorry if this was covered somewhere else, but please tell me what he is saying. Either he is already Blue or Bama has a shot this weekend.
