Usually, when Michigan loses a game, i go into a shell and my whole week is ruined. For some reason, it hasn't bothered me as much this year. With the ND game, if you take away the 1st quarter play and the turnovers when we were marching to get within one score, the play is getting better on offense.
McGuffie is a beast and will do great things to come. I was also not ashamed of the play of Threet. He didn't zip the ball 8 yrds over the head of a wide open reciever this week. He looked sharper and I was glad to see him take off and sneak it a few times for good gainers. If you're going to run the spread, the QB has to be a threat to run or you can just sit back in man with 2 safety's over the top and call it a day on defense.
I've come to the revelation not to expect too much this year and get these freshman some game experience. The Big10 is down, there's no denying that, but like RR said, Michigan will be back. I'm not so much looking for the win this year as i am looking to see the play get tighter and tighter each week. So far, that seems to be happening.
I was also glad to see Threet play the majority of the game, that switching QB thing bothers the hell out of me. Plus Sheridan is no threat to take off and run for 12 yrds. I am however, not too happy with our RB's like Grady & Brown. The were pretty highly recruited, but i hold my breath everytime they touch the ball. I feel good about the things to come.
Still though.....Weis is a fat pig, Clausen looks like a 10 yr old girl and OSU got prison raped by USC.....our time will come.
