Never have I loved hearing bland, general coachspeak more than this year.
It's time to prep the van for the trip to the House on the 4th. Aside from the tailgating provisions, the M flags (6), the mega bullhorn, and the magnetic decals, etc,, I have maize and blue paint for the windows. In '08 it was called "The McGuffie Mobile" along with various windows reading GO BLUE. It brought some honks from fellow fans along the I-94 corridor.
How about '10?? Ideas???
C'mon guys...it's not the end of the world. It hurts but last year we witnessed how much individual players contribute to team success. BG was a great player and Warren was praised all over the conference but even having 1 (supposed) stalwart corner isn't going to make or break this team. One could argue that linebacker and safety improvement on this defense would be more valuable. One player isn't going to doom us this year though.
We have all been enthusiastic this season because we are deeper and are a better "TEAM" not because we have better individual stars. Let's keep hope alive and keep the pre-happy hour drinking to a minimum.
So man wish he could got in either a year ago or this year...
Q: You know what's funny to me. I have been reading many UM football blogs (all of which blow by the way Dez) and all of them, present a common theme with regard to the UConn game. They seem to think that the re-dedication of the stadium is going to play a role in the outcome of the game. As if the players are going to play harder and the fans are going to yell louder (aside from the added seats) just because the stadium has added state of the art features. Funny. - Steve, CT
A: Anthony Sherman told me yesterday that when the team watches game film there are no stadium shots in what they see - just the field and the players. That's what they prepare for. They'll obviously prepare for crowd noise and all that but Sherm's point is very well-taken.
OK Steve in Connecticut, you obviously never visited MGoBlog in your quest for info. But if by chance you did and still managed to form that opinion, you best be prepared to throw down, pally. Insult my mother, fine, comment about my sister, so be it, but my precious MGoBlog?! Oh no you di'int!
And by the way Steve, nothing can prepare your team for the Big House, NOTHING!
So how freaked out is everyone on a scale of 1-10? I see Brian's turned it up to 11...
