This from Pat Caputo:
Rich Rodriguez's "Fun Ball" is not going to win championships. It's more the stuff for Conference USA and flea bag bowl games. Rodriguez probably secured his position for next season with that goofball victory Saturday. Does that make it good news for Wolverines fans?
The Wolverines should beat Purdue, which is devastated by injuries, this week. That makes the Wolverines at least 7-5 this season, heading into games vs. Wisconsin and Ohio State. I suppose the only wild card in this equation could be an utterly embarrassing loss at Ohio State. Wonder what Jim Tressel would do in that spot. Would he pour it on? Rub it in? Or would he pull back under the guise of sportsmanship, knowing he'd keep what looks like a good thing for Ohio State going in Ann Arbor?
Now this from Pete Fiutak of Collegefootballnews.com. He is the insider for ESPN's Allnight with Jason Smith.
"If I am a Michigan fan right now, this year really doesn't matter. I mean it's nice, Michigan is going to a bowl, yeah this is fun I am really fired up. They are putting in all these guys on offense, it doesn't matter who is at Quarterback. We are rolling through everybody. If we can do anything with our defense, we go from being an also ran in the B10, to special". He closed by saying... I think there is a lot of reason to be fired up if your a Michigan fan.
Being a Michigan fan who is hoping for the best, I lean towards Fiutak. I am going on the assumption, that the steps to fix the defense will be taken. The defense going forward will be experienced and deeper. The offense will be the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Dispatching foes with ruthless efficiency, and leaving nothing but destruction in their wake.
