I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Threw this together today in a few hours.. thought it was awesome. Uploaded it to YouTube, watched it again, and found it kind of depressing with glimmers of hope. Kind of fitting with the way the last few years have gone, but not really what I had in mind when I began making it.
Exciting? Hopeful? Flat out depressing? Let me know. And I'd love to see your user-created hype (or depression-inducing) videos as well.
Also, I'd love some help embedding.
Also also, I'd recommend watching it in 480p for highest quality (obviously.)
EDIT: tl;dw? We were bad, then got better, and now have more experience, hopefully learned from our mistakes, and will be even betterer.
Bruce Feldman wrote 18 observations from the road. He has a blurb on Michgan, and Rich Rod. Since it is behind a paywall I won't mention the contents, however I thought the last sentence was nice to hear:
"I picked Michigan No. 25 on the first preseason power rankings ballot, as an aside."
Feldman has been one of the few voices at the world wide leader who has talked up Michigan this year. I hope he turns out to be right.
Don't get me wrong, a senior called out a sophomore who he thought should be working harder. I am fine with that. Maybe Troy also felt some urgency to light a fire under the QB situation, who knows. RR was fine with it and so was I. The original situation is not the issue, I actually thought it was all overblown.
However, what doesn't seem to make sense is that Turner who was a high profile member (just based on HS rankings and expectations) of Troy's exact position group on defense, a guy he should be mentoring, at a position of need and a position of limited depth was allowed to slack his way into oblivion and eventually off the team. Maybe this was already obvious to some insiders, but it caught me completely off guard and I wonder where the alarms were before now? Why were guys not getting called out earlier when you see such a problem in your own position group? After everything that has happened, I almost want to step back to reassess Troy's comments since his own backyard was a bit of a mess. I don't know, maybe others have better perspective here, but his outspoken comments have lost something for me in the wake of the Turner fiasco.
I was just looking at the boxscore and saw the name edwards. Immediately thought wow that can't be the AMANTI EDWARDS can it?? After I had a few flashbacks that caused a small seziure I checked it out and it was indeed him. Apparently hes just a returner, but I was wondering if anyone had actually watched the game?
Any good Michigan android apps? I have Flyp... But it sucks. Are there any good ones?
Whose head would you like to grab and shake, like Michael Corleone did to his brother Fredo in The Godfather, Part II, for either a game and/or a career that inflicted emotional distress on you as a Michigan fan?
Several that come to mind for me: Troy Smith, Reggie Ho, Dusty Mangum, Plaxico Burress.
