article breaking down how rare it is to have such a good offense and such a bad defense
If you're interested in reading Dr. Saturday's latest thoughts on what we've been talking about non-stop for days now then go here.
The summary is basically what I've been thinking- putting OSU and UM in separate divisions will weaken The Game and gain the B10 almost nothing.
I'd be interested in other people's thoughts on this, especially well-explained contrarian points of view.
Here's Doc saturday's write up. Nothing really new and pretty much Brian's take on the D, but one more thing to whet the appetite for UM football content!
Fair, balanced, and honest, complete with quote from the Fearless Leader and Maize and Brew.
I really just wanted to include this because Gillett gets in another money quote about Michigan football:
But "rocky transition" doesn't quite seem like an adequate description of the last two years. The transfer of power from Clinton to Bush in 2000 was a "rocky transition"; for the proud UM fan base, this has proven to be more like a waking nightmare. The Wolverines do not take coaching changes lightly – over the past century, there have been only two more Michigan coaches than popes(*) – but there's only so much a program can be expected to take.
* - In case you're wondering 11 coaches from 1910-2010, 9 popes 1910-2010, and if you're looking for a parallel, strictly from a time in office perspective, George Little (1924) is the John Paul I (1978) of this analogy.
28 players from your team depart in a year and a half like with Syracuse? Who did they bring in to replace GERG?!? I think having Carrot Top as a head coach would have been more successful.
Just thought it was kinda cool. Dr. Saturday linked to MGOBLOG today. Nice to see a little love from someone I actually enjoy reading.....Most of the time
