that is nice bonus change
Didn't see this posted so thought I'd throw it up. I caught most of an interview by FERRALL (sirius shock jock) of downtown Stevie Brown this morning on my way to work. Here's what I got. I can't link it but maybe someone can.
--SB surprised by getting cut by Raiders and Ferrall wants to be his friend so he called him up since they are both hoosiers. Ferrall from Valpo and Brown from Columbus, IN.
--SB trying to get picked up and tightening the budget for the time being.
--Brown is still tight with GERG and thinks we will continue whoopass sequence in south bend. Brown stated he was not surprised by RObinson's break out against UCONN and was trash talking UCONN pro/prospect at camp.
--Stevie waxed eloquently on the ND rivalry and talked with glee about picking MICH over ND during his recruitment.
--Brown upbeat about season saying 9 to 10 wins will keep RR his job (probably due to bad lead by FERRALL who lapsed into his teenage pimp spiel about getting pussy at IU and penthouse pic's he picked up during the interview--SB took high road and left him hanging alone at these points).
--Ferrall asked about difference between Carr and RR and his response was Carr's regime was more like the pro's (had recorder, made note, reamed you privately later) vs. RR who is high energy in your face college style coach.
I'm with TOB on this one. I can't believe people would do this. Do they want to rebuild the program or not?
If you are the person who verbally attacked Anthony Zettel after Saturday's game because he hasn't committed to Michigan yet, or if you're the tool who flipped off James Ross and his father because they wore red and white ST. MARY'S PREP SWEATSHIRTS to the game, you're a piece of shit, and I'm embarrassed to cheer for the same team as you. Go jump off a cliff.
So looking back with the knowledge that Drew Brees is a Super Bowl MVP, does it make that 2000 loss to Purdue a little easier to accept? No, of course not, but knowing just how good Brees is do you chalk that loss up to the Michigan offense or defense?
Michigan offense: in the first half Michigan raced to a 28-10 lead but only scored a field goal in the second half before losing 32-31. That offense was stacked with Drew Henson, Anthony Thomas, BJ Askew, Marquise Walker, David Terrell, Steve Hutchinson, Jeff Backus, Jonathan Goodwin, Mo Williams, Ronald Bellamy and Bennie Joppru.
Michigan defense: adjustments? We don't need to stinkin' adjustments! History has shown the defense wasn't nearly as talented as the offense: the d-line had bupkis, while the back 7 featured Victor Hobson, Larry Foote and Jeremy LeSueur.
In retrospect I think you can say the defense acquitted itself much better than the offense. The defense just wasn't nearly as good which was made painfully apparent in THE HORROR (The Prequel) when it gave up 54 points to Northwestern. With that being the case giving up 32 to Purdue was a reasonable outcome for that undermanned unit. Brees was after all the Big Ten player of the year, Maxwell Award winner, and a Heisman finalist. And future Super Bowl winning QB and MVP of the game.
That offense on the other hand should have been able to put up much more than a mere field goal in the second half. Doing so would have allowed the team to run away and hide by outscoring the Boilermakers. A win in West Lafayette and the team would have eventually wrapped up an undisputed Big Ten championship.
Watching Auburn, looks like they run a lot of this. I seem to recall Florida running it too, with Tebow.... And RR running it with WVU.... yet it seems like we never have seen it over the past couple years at M.
Anyone know why?
Is it just a matter of not having a QB - yet - that has experience and the full playbook....so perhaps we'll see it with Denard this year?
I'm a sophmore in high school and I was just wondering how I get into the Michigan Marching band. I play the bass trombone, but i don't think that should be a problem. If any of you fellow band geeks out there would give some insight that'd be great.
