no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
Since the ability to read David Brandon's mind is not one of my superpowers, I figured I better start dumping my Harbaugh porn now. Michigan came into this game with the #2 scoring defense (6.8ppg) and Harbaugh leading the nation in passing efficiency. The first half was a complete disaster and it seemed inevitable that Bo was going to lose yet another bowl game. Tune in tomorrow to see if he can rally his troops in the 2nd half.
I noticed that ESPN has begun reporting which players will be academically ineligible for many teams but Michigan has no reports yet. I know the coaching staff said they dont anticipate any problems but does anyone know when for sure they are released?
I am curious as to how many "should have been" touchdowns we had this year. Here are the requirements:
1) WR must have been open with no one between him & the endzone, or already in the endzone.
2) The pass to that WR must have actually been thrown.
3) The pass must have been either dropped, under/over thrown, or batted away
Happy hols, everyone. With the Gator Bowl just days a way, I'm wondering re the degree to which a big win or loss would influence opinions of RR here. In other words, would a win silence many in the anti-RR camp? Would a loss -- a double-digit one -- push many pro-RRs in the anti camp?
And what about the undecideds? It's my sense that most people are somewhat on the fence. I could be wrong -- I usually am -- but I just get the sense that a big win or loss would tip a lot of opinions. Am I wrong?
Saw this on rittenbergs blog. i know some people can't stand him, but i've always thought herbsreit was pretty honest wth his opinions. says some pretty telling stuff about his feelings on TP.
As an Eagles fan it is doubly enjoyable when Michigan men have an impact on the Eagles. This is a link to a Philly.com article about Jason Avant winning this year's Ed Block Courage Award for the Eagles. He is a solid guy who never puts himself first and is willing to do anything for the betterment of the team (most recently demonstrated by the crushing block during Jackson's punt return for a TD against the Giants). His efforts often fly under the radar but he is invaluable with all the little things he does every week.
