Obviously, the PSU story has been dominating the news reels, and it should - what happened at PSU is horrific in so many ways. In looking at the MGoBoard, it is obvious that there is significant interest in this story, which is appropriate, given the magnitude. But, there is not a single board topic on the front page dealing with Michigan.
Like many, I come to this site as a distraction from day to day life, as a place to discuss my favorite topic, Michigan FB. A few hours ago, I read through the grand jury findings, and I was actually sick to my stomach. While I am following this story closely, I just need a break from it for a few minutes, and a place to discuss something far lighter - out upcoming game.
I offer this thread as a place to discuss the game, with the following questions:
1. What do you WANT to see out of our team against a medium-difficulty B10 team? (Obviously, points, a win, a shutout, etc., but how about some real expectations).
2. What do you EXPECT to see out of our team this week?
My answers to start it off:
1. I WANT to see Denard complete 60+% of his passes, and to hit at least 1-2 long passes. I also want to see Denard recognize the defense and scramble for some yards.
2. I actually expect both of those things to happen, except for the 1-2 long passes. Maybe we will see 1 jump ball, and if it completes, great. I also expect to see our defense tackle better. It seems like the past 2-3 games, our team has gotten away from some of the great fundamentals that we saw during the first week. I expect that to be the focus in practice this week, and hence, I expect fundamantals to improve on both sides of the ball.
