Ode to Vijay: 2001 Citrus Bowl, 2004 MSU at Michigan, 2006 Wisconsin at Michigan, 2006 Vanderbilt at Michigan
Back in the day, Vijay from the now defunct iBlog for Cookies posted what are, to my knowledge, the first torrents of Michigan football games. While the video quality may be meh by 2011 standards, it is superior to anything else on the internet for those games. If he happens to be lurking here, I want to say well done and thank you for the inspiration.
Reading the TomVH post on Devin Lucien (thanks Batman) my first reaction was: WTF!, followed by: the coaches must know what they are doing - right?? The Audacity of Hoke (sorry) has made it clear that BH wants players who bleed Maize and Blue, so here's a kid who loves Michigan and is a hotly pursued 4 star recruit (with a SDSU offer) being told: "play defense or take a hike". As stated before: WTF! We have no wide receivers and precious little else in this deteriorating class yet it's "my way or the highway" to a top kid... but the coaches must know better... right?
Logic says that the coaches eat, sleep and breathe football for their entire lives so they must have more football knowledge in their big toes than I do in my whole being..... Yet Obi plays whilst Demens sits... and sits... we have signed a grand total of two defensive tackles over the last three classes.... Sheridan starts over Threet... and on and on. Perhaps the detailed micro view of the coaches needs more light from a macro point of view that is less emersed in the process and can see a bigger picture. I am not volunteering for the job, and this wonderful board already produces a wealth of incredible insights (along with much hot air and snarking), so this is not a revolution against coaching expertise but more of a caution about automatically assuming that these guys know what they are doing. It would appear that they often struggle with seeing the forest through the trees....... like most of us. GO BLUE!
