to play football, not to play trumpet
Michigan is third in 24/7's team rankings behind Texas and Alabama, with the three spotlighted recruits being Kalis, Magnuson, and Wormley. Their (brief) analysis:
Brady Hoke’s first full year on the recruiting trail has yielded strong early returns, particularly in both Michigan and Ohio.
Like I said, brief.
I don’t really have an opinion, so I am interested in some analysis of whether good weather is favorable or unfavorable for Michigan against ND. We all know that the rain was a non-factor for Michigan for the majority of the time the players were actually on the field. However, the weather in South Bend was not good and surely contributed to some of the poor QB play and turnovers.
Michigan has the potential for a dynamic rush attack with several weapons: Fitz, Shaw, Denard, etc. Cierre Wood put up 104 on 20 carries with 1TD last week in poor weather.
Should the weather be good or poor, how does this affect the play on the field and who has the edge?
Interesting RR comment:
“When he’s in the shotgun surveying the field, whether he’s running or throwing it, he’s one of the best weapons in college football,” Rodriguez said. “And when I saw that game, they’re still doing a lot of that because that’s what he does well and sure, you’re worried about him getting hurt a little bit but I think you also get hurt when you have your back to the defense, standing in the pocket waiting and trying to find somebody open."
Just to get the morning board flowing, let's hear any and every reason you dislike ND. I'm catholic, grew up in Indiana, and that school was shoved down my throat. I grew up with people like damefan all around me. That's probably the base of my hatred.
Side note: We do love our fellow MGoUser, Irish.
EDIT: As profitgoblue says below, try and keep this clean and good natured.
