- They say if your heart isnt it the little things seem monumental or seem impossible. That being said, you can see why the little things, like tackling are not there for Michigan Football. Its WHAT has taken Michigan's heart out that Michigan's players should reflect on. Was it losing? Not a good excuse. Was it a new coach? Not a good excuse. There really is no good excuse and no one to blame after a loss like this. So to the fan who thinks there is, sorry you're wrong. When you sign up to attend Michigan, you represent your family, your high school and high school coach, your friends, and your state you are from. Last week when Michigan States WR White burned Michigan I couldn't help but hearing how he was a walk on. Interesting I thought a walk on. Meaning he was a Scout/Rivals ZERO in the hearts of many. I'd take a kid with heart who has had to fight for crumbs over a 4-5 star recruit anyday. Most coaches would, most fans need the fluff. White and Hoyer they finally had laughs on Michigan. Talent can be a burden and a crutch to not push. I'm sorry but this one is on the guys. Rich and Shafer deserve an apology from Michigan.
- For years on blog boards I've heard people rip on Bobby Carpernter, James Lauranitis, and A.J. Hawk. Fundamentally speaking though they were as good as it gets. We are not even close to the mental prep or fundamentals shown by the above mentioned names. Davis Harris being the exception. There are good parts to the defense from a physical standpoint. But that's 1/3 of football, maybe less. I'm shocked no one from the team, on defense has said to the press,"IT'S MY FAULT I"LL DO BETTER," and mean it. T. Taylor kind of hinted that when he was an underclassman he tried hard to impress and support the seniors. Obi has said,"I don't know." All fair answers but I want the answer that says,"Im the leader and Ill take the responsibility." The closest we got was B. Graham predicting a W against state. Now you may find one lil quote from a player that said it was my fault, but as a group they need to take responsibility and that will help them get drafted. It shows character.
