landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
A nice article at Rivals by Jonathon Chait that compares/contrasts the rushing attacks of Bo and Lloyd teams.
I think most on this site realize that Carr's teams were featured the passing game. He also noted how Bo was fond of the WVU option attack.
Which era do most people beleive to be old fashioned Michigan football?
It's a free article.
Yes, the season is only 4 games old and things will change and get tougher. But before they do, let's review some of the unexpected good stuff. 5 weeks ago who would have thought:
-UM would be 4-0
-UM would be 8th in the country in rushing and 16th in scoring
-UM would be 1st in the Big Ten in rushing and scoring
-Forcier would be getting more good lovin' than Terrelle Pryor and Matt Barkley
-A Michigan team would be 1-3 having lost to the MAC and to ND...and it's not us
-Sweater vest would be getting more heat than Rich Rod
-Our leading rusher is a guy not named Minor
-Carlos Brown would have more yards rushing than Evan Royster
-Our quarterbacks would have more rushing TDs than games played
-We would go 4 games without fumbling a kick/punt
-Forcier would only have 2 pics - 1 arguably not his fault and would be leading the Big Ten in "points responsible for"
I think some of us would have predicted some of these things but hard to imagine all these things falling our way just a mere 5 weeks ago. So...for the moment...I'm just soaking it in and basking in the glow (and trying not to think about defense).
