is there such a thing as an etsy genuis? if so, this is it.
The home opener is over and the Wolverines have won the first home opener since 2006 we've waited 3 years for this moment and it's finally here! 1-0! It's a huge win and great boost for coach Rodriguez and the Wolverines but it's always awesome winning the first game of the year. Michigan deffinetly looked MUCH different from the team we saw against Utah in last year's home opener and this win officially burries the fears and memories of last year's 3-9 season so it looks like 2009 could be an awesome year for Michigan football. Tate Forcier looked awesome in his debeut as a Wolverine and he did not dissapoint. 175 yards in the air two TDs and how about Denard D-ROB Robinson with some impressive carries and a TD for himself on his debeut also. Sheridan also stepped in and unfortunetly threw a pick (was dreading that) but in the end it didn't do any harm as the Michigan defense played like an iron curtain and shut down Hiller and the Broncos offense. I'm really amazed by the athleticism by Tate Forcier this guy is the real deal, he can run, throw, scramble and even throw and run under pressure in the pocket.
But now that the home opener is done it is officially ND week and it will be a tough one this coming saturday Michigan's defense is going to have to play just like they did in this game maybe even a little tighter. Clausen looked pretty damn good today against Nevada but screw the Irish's win this is a Michigan blog and the attention should remain on Michigan. One thing I saw that I didn't like against the Broncos was the penalties on Michigan. Warren has to be a little more careful when it comes to man to man coverage and make sure he is not holding on to the wide reciever. Way too many penalties in the second half on the Wolverines and they have to be much more disciplined against ND this Saturday. But the way they played today really opened my eyes and I truly believe if they can play as aggressive as they did today against Western they can beat ND and pull of the upset. On a lighter side I'm deffinetly more comfortable right now as Michigan fan than a suckeyes fan would! Ready for USC,OSU? They are going to get thrashed. Great game from our Wolverines and looking forward to another big win in the Big House this Saturday! GO BLUE!
BTW: HAPPY LABOR DAY The day when you can tell your boss KISS MY ASS!
here comes the grammar cat
I appreciate the enthusiasm, but that is hard to read.
I do feel much, much better than I did four hours ago.
(sorry, don't read big paragraphs like that, but let's party anyway!)
Thought the abc commentators were incredibly complimentary, almost Tim Tebowish at some points when describing RR and the team. But I loved it!!!!!
Yeah, they're nice... But sometimes you have a bunch of stuff to say in a hurry
That was a stream of consciousness, dude. Adrenaline-fueled, excited ... I couldn't agree more. Except for that suckeye line -- today was not a good day for OSUck. Typical first game for those yahoos. Rest assured, though, they will come into Ann Arbor prepared.
If we can keep up that style of play all year long we could go 13-0! Of course the odds are a million to one but damn I've waited a long time to see a win like that one. And yes very excited!!!!
a Fantastic QB recruit coming in next year (hope he redshirts).
A fast, competent looking defense.
A fast, competent looking offense.
If we stay relatively injury free we can win 8 games this year.
The sun is shining again at the Big House.
What a difference a day can make.
I feel like 1,000 lbs are lifted from me! Any concerns from anyone?
Mine - safeties, D-Rob not selling the pass enough (afraid when he's in the game the box will just be totally stacked), and I am still nervous until I see Brandon Minor carry the football, although Carlos, Shaw, and Smith all looked good.
Anyone know if Gallon is expected to contribute at all on offense or in the return game?? His youtube highlight tape from h.s. gave me a boner for 3 days. If you haven't seen it, check it out (the highlight video, not my boner).
I didn't think that the safeties were really tested much but they seemed ok at least. D-Rob might end up a serviceable backup, but Tate is the man this year and showed that. I wish that they could afford to put D-Rob at tailback but maybe next year.
I feel very good about this performance.
1) Robinson is a true freshman who's been at UM for 3.5 weeks. Do you really think he's going to be polished, advanced QB? It'll take time to refine him as a passer, but he'll get there. Give the kid time. His athleticism will carry him for now.
2) The fact that we ran for 240 yards without Minor bodes well. Shaw, Smith, and Brown ran very, very well. With Minor for the ND game, we'll have the element of the power running game and that should help diversify our offense.
3) Gallon got in late due to grade issues. Seeing how Kelvin Grady played lights out, and Odoms doing well, I expect Gallon to redshirt barring injuries. Slot position is looking good right now.
What a sigh of relief. I am feeling great about the rest of the year.. beware ND!
Please tell me I'm not the only one that notices the Big Ten blog links. Why the hell is Notre Dame listed?
ABC commentators discussed the DFP 'investigation' in a very disparging manor
I enjoyed ^^this^^
Was it my imagination, or did our play execution fool the cameraman during much of the first half of play.
