there would have to be some to wash away
Four years ago this weekend, ND's comeback to beat MSU inspired this:
Listen to it and you will feel better after today's way-too-close win.
I created this last night, clearly expecting a different outcome. Any suggestions what I can add to make this more accurate.
I really hoped and expec ted that this would be a great representation of what happened today.
So that we don't fill the entire board with one-off comments, post all of your complaints about today here.
Baby Seal U just kicked us in the teeth. The was the worst defensive performance I have ever seen. Gashed for 5-10 yrds a play running. Receivers open everywhere. No contain. Missed tackles. No pass rush. Defensive line pushed back. Faked out by play action every time. Blocked punt. 37 pts given up to a subdivision team.
Please don't make the argument that UMass was a good team - they were OK, but not that good. There is nothing, I repeat NOTHING positive that can come out of playing a football subdivision team.
It's great to get the win, but this one almost feels like a loss.
This was probably a good thing that happened to Michigan this week. Yes, I am as disappointed as all of you are that we didn't get a chance to give some young guys a shot, namely Devin or Tate, but we won the game, didn't show anything special, and got served a little bit of a wake up call. The team needs to refocus and play each game with intensity, one at a time. I hope the message gets sent and I'm glad it doesn't have to come at the cost of a loss.
