he grew a beard
I was trying to talk sense into a buddy of mine, who is a Michigan fan. Just not a fan of the coach. It went back and forth with me bringing up so many points on how the defense being young and inexperienced. However how they are improving and not giving up! He expects shut outs or an average defense atleast. I told him it will come in due time! To the thread, sorry for the delay. I haven't picked Michigan to lose any of the games this year, I was hoping for a 12-0 season. Realistically it may fall 7-5, 8-4, or even 9-3 (excluding bowl) Just curious as to how many people are on my side and agree that after 2562 days it will end? I guess for some dilithium reasons or not, i believe the "team" will get up for the game and shock all those fans!
Hopefully my Lions can help subdue some of this weekend's disappointment again. I'm not too optimistic with Shaun Hill facing the NYG's defense, especially because we're not sure Calvin is playing. That being said, I'll be chugging the honolulu blue Kool-Aid if we win and will buy tickets to see them play the Redskins in a couple weeks.

It seems pretty clear the coaches really like carvin johnson. Does anyone else see him swapping positions with cam gordon after the season? I think carvin is a better fit at deep safety than spur and visa versa with cam. I think spur was the easiest way for him to see the field as a freshman and deep safety is a complicated position to walk into from fall camp for a true freshman. Again, I think Cam is a better fit at spur or OLB (if he can add weight). Discuss...
I don't know if this is a good fit, I mean, putting players in the shed in Texas is one thing, but in Minnesota a skinny walk-on could freeze to death out there.
I preface this with the statement that I am not the most knowledgeable football mind. With that out of the way, I noticed that Michigan use the I-formationon offense much more against Iowa than I've seen this year. Was this something that was employed to exploit an Iowa weakness the coaches saw on film? Was this directly in reaction to MSU keeping their backside defensive ends at home? Any information/thoughts are appreciated.
