I know it was windy today in the Big House but the Special Teams (minus the FG block) looked pretty shaky. Anyone else worried about this going forward? Fumbled punt, Missed FG, and a shanked XP had me worrying a little bit. You never know when a game comes down to an FG or a punt that needs to be fielded.
2012 DE Chris Wormley has already become a fan favorite, and has been added to everyone's wish list for the '12 recruiting class. He was in the Big House today for the game, and told me he enjoyed himself. "It was good, I talked to the coaches a little bit about things," he said. The hot topic with Wormley was that although he's a Michigan fan, Ohio State currently leads because they were showing him the most "love."
Now that September 1st has passed, and the coaches are allowed to make more contact with him, they're making every effort to do so. "The coaches told me how much they want me. I want them to keep doing that, and just make me feel better about them," said Chris. It seems that time and more communication can cure that, which the coaches will continue to do.
I asked him if this visit, and the win, helped Michigan's chances at all. He said, "Yeah, a little." Chris likes to play it close to the vest, but I think this was a step in the right direction for him. The coaches invited him to the game, and will be able to now show him more "love."
I have never been more confident on third down situations in all my football watching life. That was something else. 14 of 19 on the day. I can't remeber ever seeing a conversion rate that good.
Didn't see if Dileo ever got a shot. Was Gallon yanked after that flub? Can't believe that happened again.
