An emotional roller coaster today, but awesome win. Cannot put my love for Dilithium into words. And I think both sides of the ball will only get better, and special teams certainly can't get worse. We are gonna f*ck some people up.
After two weeks I cannot help but dream about how dynamic the offense could be with a real RB threat. It's early, but neither Shaw nor Smith have really done it for me. Which leaves me with two questions:
1. By the end of the year, are we going to have a clear-cut top back(s)?
2. If so, who will it be?
I loved Smith last year, but I think he's still recovering from the injury. I have an intuition that Cox or Fitz will emerge (if Fitz can get and stay healthy). I think Cox is the guy.
Holy cow! I'm on board with the heisman hype, (although denard, don't listen, u have to keep improving, especially if you hope to beat OSU, MSU, PSU, etc).
That looked like a video game offense out there. 'Oh look, man coverage blitz, i'll guess i'll run the qb up the middle for 20 yards.' 500 fricken yards! Woooohooo!
That was totally NCAA 06 (yes i'm still playing that one, i only buy NCAA games with michigan players on the cover), even down to the ridiculous 90 yard pass we gave up to rudulph because the safety jumped for the ball instead of just tackling the damn guy for a penalty.
This isn't the Jack talkin' the man can not only coach, he can coach with the best of 'em. We still have plenty of holes left on the team -depth would be nice- but clearly the program is heading in the right direction...
GO COACH ROD, GO BLUE!!1
Very freshman mistake by Bolden with the INT in Bama's zone. I think we have a great chance to capitalize on penn state this year. Let's hope the D grows up a bit over the next few weeks.
This is the official overly enthusiastic post game thread! Robinson will win 3 Heismans! Our defense is top 5 in the nation! Tate hugged Rich Rod!!!
Ya, they gave up some big plays, but the D held us in there all day! I couldn't be more thrilled with the victory - the boys pulled it out!
