I did not make this headline up
Michigan's second offensive drive. Denard tackled on a second down run about the 8 yard line. Purdue players clearly throw punches in the pile.
Quality coaching. Quality guy.
Within the past week we've had two major milestones--the NCAA exonerating RR of the most damning charge and the elusive 6th victory which qualifies us for our first bowl game under RR.
Both are incredibly positive outcomes, but what concerns should we have about having emptied the tank emotionally, not to mention physically, as we head into yet another critical game?
There are numerous examples of the letdown game phenomena, even among the best teams. While I'm extremely hopeful for this team's future, I'm not sure we're good enough yet to beat the competition, even potentially inferior opponents, if we come out flat.
So if you put yourself in the position of the coaches and the players, what's your mental approach this week?
As a fan, admittedly irrational at times, I see it this way:
- Another win guarantees a winning record
- More wins = better bowl game
- Purdue, on paper, is by far our best chance for another win
- I'm f*cking tired of losing to Purdue
- Danny Hope is a tool
Does anyone know the extent of the injury to Henry and if we will be facing him or Robinson next week?
as bad as that game was, hearing "old time rock n roll" piped in during the carlos brown forward pass review was the most painful and disappointing part of the whole day. was there a terrible wedding reception going on nearby? that seems like a song a lot of students would really be into (sarcasm)
then, as if to make up for it, there was nonsense thud thud techno nonsense.
