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.
As I sit at my computer and relentlessly check the board for new topics and all things Michigan, I thought I would start a thread with a positive tone rather than the dong-punching rubbish of the past week.
There is plenty of speculation as to whether Denard will become the starter this season. What is not in question is the fact that he is one of the fastest players on the team, and that he has the potential to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.
I wonder how many times we will hear a call similar to this after Denard shows his defense shredding skills:
"If you look real close there's a jock strap on the field and it belongs to (insert defender's name here)." -Matt Millen
Starter or not, having a full year under his belt will make DRob a better all around player, and an exciting piece of the puzzle in 2010. Go Blue.
So Mark May, in his infinite wisdom, just posted this on twitter...
Michigan QB Denard Robinson will be the starter in the opener vs. UCONN
It was also re-tweeted by Forde...
Thought the MGoBlogosphere should be informed.
Let's here the predictions. Assuming that Denard starts. Will he rush for over or under 100 yds against UConn? Also, Over/Under 1,000 yds on the season? I personally think he'll rush for over 100 vs. UConn but just shy of 1,000 for the year. What say you?
Ok, so I finally got this image embedding thing to work. This is a very rough draft of what could be a pretty cool tour "poster" or back of a t-shirt. So, if anyone would like to clean it up and add their own touches feel free to do so. Sept. 4th can't get here soon enough.
Don't think I can embed it, sorry.
But as always with practice highlights, there's the caveat - is it a great play by the offense, or a bad one by the defense?
