I think one of the many talented graphic artists on this board should make a shirt that is just a silhouette of Denard on one knee after a score (Maize shirt, maybe black or Blue silhouette) with the signature dreads coming out of the helmet. Something similar to the Woodson heisman shirt that was available in the MGoStore for awhile. Anyone out there want to give this a shot? You've got at least one buyer already.
Giving Indiana a chance to return a kickoff or throw it into the endzone scared me to death. I was hoping they would take a knee, have Indiana burn its timeouts, and kick the short field goal. Am I crazy? Rich Rod obviously had more confidence in the defense than the kicker.
Why does ND / BC get ABC and USC / Washington get the HD feed on ESPN2. Does anyone know if you can get Stanford - Oregon in an HD feed? Sometimes coverage maps drive me nuts
I don't know why--maybe it's all the time spent here, but even if this IS a historically bad defense, I feel so close to the players that it's hard for me to criticize. I know they play their hearts out. I know they got several key stops in the second half. And (haven't seen anyone else say this) THEY WERE OUT THERE THE WHOLE DAMNED GAME. Not only that, but the much-maligned three-man rush was beating IU's brains out as the game stretched on, and made it possible for the secondary to shut down those vaunted receivers on another several key plays.
Alright, next week is a new game. We are home (thank goodness). How will our D stack up against MSU? Will they have to work as hard? MSU's receiving corps can't possibly be as fine as IU's, can it? How is MSU's rush game, and can the three-man front stop it, or do we see more 4-man fronts? What are the key matchups?
As always, if you find such discussion premature, please don't feel required to respond.
Back in the natural field days, Michigan students used to throw marshmallows until the field was changed to synthetic because the marshmallows would stick to the turf on warm days.
It is my suggestion that Michigan begins a new tradition and everyone bring in Maize shoelaces to twirl.
First and foremost because it sucks to go through that and I hope he gets better. But also because I want his butt in the stadium when we beat State next week. I want him to watch it in person where he can't turn the TV off... Go Blue!
