Because I despised the other thread so much, I thought we needed some balance on the MGoBoard.
1) Why post a thread like that?
2) Borges and Hoke have been at this a while, let's have a little faith.
3) Denard spent a lot of time out of games last year, and plenty of that was due to the large number of predictable QB keepers that went up the middle into the teeth of the defense for four yards. For all we know, the Borges offense will keep the defense guessing, open up lanes for the big jaw-dropping, open field Denard TD runs, and spare our nimble-but-not-exactly-burly quarterback from the punishing hits that limited his PT last year.
I'm excited for Denard and for our new offense. Let's also not forget that in most of our biggest games last year (MSU, OSU, the other MSU), our offense completely stalled.
