that is nice bonus change
I believe I know the answer. However, what is the mindset of the sparties and buckeyes hoping and praying for certain UM players to be injured. Pretty sad in my mind and representative of the circle those "humans" travel in ... I would quote a few bible passages that forsee their judgement but will opt for your opinion.
Is winning a football game all that sums up the lives of these types? I love to win but at the expense of injury to a young player. Mind-boggling.
Omameh - I don't think there has been a bigger let-down on offense than you. How many times do I have to watch you ignore your assignment and just run right downfield to pick on little DBs and overmatched LBs? You are a LINEMAN, stay on the f'ing line.
And while I'm at it, all five of you and your svelt friends need to gain fat weight and plop your asses at the line of scrimmage and block. Back in my day at UM ('93-'96) our linemen also drank chocolate milk. But not that nutrition Barwis crap. It was a Hershey bar, milk, and a microwave. Those baby-faced fat boys would create a fricken' Great Wall of China back there for Elvis and Collins to sit for 45 seconds so their 6'4" 230 pound heads could look downfield and find one of their two receivers. That's how you win games.
Fat and Stagnant = Wins.
Running around in the defensive backfield is going to leave a gaping holes in the pocket and Denard won't have time on his 7-step drops. Either straighten up, or we're bringing Alex Mitchell back for his last year of eligibility.
That is all for now....
Well, after several posters postulated that Denard might be on the cover of SI this week, the answer is obviously no.
I was interested to see how we were mentioned given the media fawning over Michigan and DR in these early games.
Never mind the cover curse, after seeing the 4 page article (referenced on the cover) about Tyrelle Pryor, I thought we were going to make it without even a MENTION.
I got to page 89 (of 93) without seeing anything then saw the ANTI-curse -- from "This Week in SI" a reference to 1989 and Ismail's two TD returns against Michigan. Then, on page 90, a picture of DR asking folks to go to SI.com to "check out a wrap-up of the biggest stories from Week 2."
This is about the furthest we could get from a cover curse event, right? Woo! (?)
What are you most excited to see this Saturday? For me, it's:
- Devin playing for an extended period of time. It will be very interesting to see how his skill-set compares to Denard's. I also want to see him run the ball as a bigger dood.
- Watching our RBs annihilate everything. We are going to put up a lot of yardage on the ground and I am looking forward to seeing the RBs get to share in the massacre.
- Watching Denard play. I don't care if it's 2-3 series, he is exciting to watch no matter what he is doing.
Bonus: seeing how far Tate has progressed since last year.
Note: this is not a thread to say OMG OMG DON'T TEMPT FATE UMASS CAN BEAT US KNOCK ON WOOD. Post your pointless concerns elsewhere.
Looks like the lights are coming to the Big House....
Per AP's Larry Lage's Twitter: @LarryLage: U-M Regents approved 1.8 million project to add permanent lights @ the Big House
I didn't see this mentioned yet, but if it was brought up in one of the other Denard threads, I apologize.
I saw a promo for College Gameday this week that showed pieces of an interview that Erin Andrews did with Denard.
So it looks like I will actually have a reason to watch Gameday for the first time this season. I believe it starts at 9am ET on ESPNU and moves to ESPN at 10. I am assuming the interview would not be shown until after it switches over, but who knows.
