Denard No. 6, Lewan was 10.
My prediction to finish out the rest:
3. Tom (This bottles my mind)
4./5. Burkhead, somebody else who I can't think of.
He's been getting a lot of recognition, I'm excited for the O-Line this year. Hopefullly they can help one (or more) of the RBs really shine too.
This also means Mike Martin and Denard are in the Top 11 at least, but we already knew that. Good stuff.
Rittenberg came out with his B10 rankings earlier tonight. Either he scored some extra cat nip tonight or rushed this because his Ma was calling him to come out of the basement for a late dinner.
Northwestern & Illinois above Michigan?!
Illinois can only play on half a field and Northwestern was stricken by the Angry QB Hating God. How are they in this position?
PSU above Iowa and Illinois?!
Both these teams crushed PSU. I know they didn't have McGloin, but I doubt the outcome would change with him in.
LOLophers above Indiana?
Granted Indiana has not won a conference game, but I feel that they would if they played the LOLophers.
Agree? Disagree? Thoughts?
I just read this paragraph on espn and it made me smile. Rittenberg excluded, winning can even make some of the biggest tools show RR alittle love.
Edit: I didn't mean to make him out to be a tool. I was just saying the media in general.
1. Rich Rodriguez's offense might save his job: Rip on Michigan's defense all you want, but the Wolverines' offense deserves a lot of credit this season. Michigan overcame five turnovers to rack up 67 points, 676 offensive yards and 33 first downs against a good Illinois defense that entered Saturday ranked 12th nationally in points allowed (16.8 ppg) and 15th in yards allowed (301.4 ypg). Despite losing starting quarterback Denard Robinson to a head injury, Michigan kept rolling behind backup Tate Forcier. Wideout Roy Roundtree had a historic day with a team-record 246 receiving yards and two touchdowns. The Wolverines needed every bit of offense to beat Illinois in triple overtime, but they're now bowl eligible and can breathe a little easier before a very winnable game at Purdue. Seven wins should ensure Rodriguez is back in 2011.
What are your thoughts?
Rittenberg posts Rich's statement that the rumors about defensive staff changes are false. He also includes this quote from David Brandon:
Athletic director Dave Brandon isn't ready to share his thoughts on the Rodriguez-led program that has won just four of 20 conference games and 13 of 32 overall.
"I'll comment on the state of the program after the season," Brandon said Monday morning. "I know the coaches and the players are working hard to get better."
That does not sound like "Rich will be here for a long time" ... It sounds like there is a crack in the steadfast support. (Rich didn't look too comfortable Saturday night either.)
Rittenberg says sparty wins on a Dan Conroy field goal in the waning moments...
He says Denard will get his, but Cousins will "continue his second half brilliance" and Sparty comes out on top 37-35.
I keep trying to be objective and I see our flaws and where we are going to struggle I just think that, there's too much on the line for us and we find a way to bring the Bunyan back to AA. Link below.
