I'm thinking 110 on the ground, 205 in the air.
Informal poll: How many yards for DRob this weekend?
I'd say at least a thousand.
I will take 1 yard, Bob.
I will take 2 yards, Bob.
Awfully small window bwgrudt1484. Hope you nailed it.
In the Joker's voice
I will say about 120 on the ground and 195 in the air. The rain may hurt his passing and I see Smith and Shaw getting more carries / yards this weekend.
I see them getting a lot of carries this week, especially if they run a qb spy on Denard which could take one more linebacker out of the play. Im not too worried about them running a spy on DROB because our lineman will do a better job blocking down field than they did against UCONN. There were a few plays where it was one block away from being a huge gain for a TD.
Yeah but even if they do have a LB spy on D-Rob, it won't matter too much. He has too much athletic ability to make a LB miss. There will be times that we won't, but more times than not D-Rob will beat a LB one on one. As long as the OL blocks like they did last week, I don't see our rushing attack having much trouble, if any.
170 on the ground. 180 in the air.
2 TD on the ground. 1 in the air.
Bonus, Bonus prediction:
Michigan 38, ND 35
110 ground, 227 passing
120 running /150 passing seems reasonable. I think RBs will shoulder more of running game this week.
until Rodriguez pulls him in the fourth to rest him.
103 rushing, 201 passing. 3 TD'S
ND has to scheme to take away Denard's running. So I say 73 yards but our backs will run up about 130 yards combined. Assuming RichRod has Denard pass off run fakes I can see 250 yards in the air. If we get 400 yards + of total offense we win.
Score: M 31 - ND 27
That includes a Cullen Christian pick 6.
150 rushing, 240 passing
and let Denard manage the game. So something like 100 yards, and another 150 through the air, with one or several running backs slicing and dicing ND like a Popeil Vegamatic for, like, 70 gazillion more.
Denard will rush for 114 and throw for 185
Shit - don't jinx it!
I think they'll load the box to TRY and stop Denard. Still gets about 105 on the ground. Puts up around 150 through the air. Tate puts up another 154 through the air and 17 on the ground.
After all the conservative quick outs on the passes this wkend, other than the few play fakes i would have to believe they will open it up a little more. He will just go over 200 in the air and 100-150 on the ground.
All of them.
Ground - one metric ton of yards.
Air - one huge assload of yards (think Weis xoxo)
150 ground, 200+ air.
600, then they're going to put in Kennedy.
88 Rushing 1Td
238 Passing 3 Tds
hold out for the Formal poll to answer.
Aww heck, 114 rushing and 171 passing. I think our running backs have good days and I think Mike Cox or Hopkins may get a few carries if the weather sucks.
125 rushing, 1 td.
225 passing, 2tds
Denard will account for 412 total light years. Yards are insufficient.
Passing - 120ish (I think Tate finds his way on the field and passes for some yards as well)
Rushing - 80ish (I think - er, hope - the RBs tote the rock a bit more).
Less-than-honest-but-I-believe-it-anyway-answer? A billionty rushing, a trillionty passing.
162 rush 217 pass
I will say 180 air, 100 ground.
No way is ND going to put Denard in a corner. I don't know why nobody thinks he's going close to 200 rushing again. Uconn had all halftime to come up with something to contain him and looked just as bad after as before. I don't think giving ND a week will make any difference even if they do this "at all cost" nonsense.
Have some confidence that Denard's legs = the real thing.
Otherwise are we thinking 30 yards rushing vs OSU?
20 some carries for 155 yards on the ground and 210 through the air. He'll hit more big plays with the pass but be slightly less efficient/ accurate on the road. All in all I'll say 365 yards of total offense with 3 total TDs and 1 turnover in a slightly more pass oriented offense (relative to DR running 29 times) where he makes one mistake in the passing game but still recovers and has a good day. He won't be quite as unstoppable as a runner but still pretty damn close. The offense will make a few more big positive plays outside of just Denard's running which will be slighly better defended ...while making some key mistakes that keep it close. I still think we win a tight one that we would easily win at home. Of course I'm assuming the Devin/Tate don't play much if at all so these are the stats.
~80 rushing, ~270 passing
My theory is that Kelly is going to load the box and force Denard to beat him passing, which Denard will do. So step the run game down a slight notch, step up the passing.
Personally I'm hoping for a strong showing from our RB stable this game. Long grinding drives where we switch between power and speed backs to keep the ND offense off balance and keep our DBs sitting happily on the bench where they can't be torched by Crist.
No idea how it's going to be split but I'm going with 236 w/ tate coming in for a couple series and picking up about 80 yards passing and 13 on the ground.
150 on the ground.
250 in the air.
another 100 underground in a new set of subterranean plays.
50 with Tate on his back.
Since BK knows DRob has wheels, RR will switch it up for ND. -2 yards rushing for DRob but, an absolute artillery of aerial assult will be deployed, with a rotation of three quarterbacks. Robinson alone putting up 420 yards in passing. Final score? Michigan 8 ND 6
210 passing with a couple TD's.
1 rush TD (unless we are counting them like ESPN and including his handoffs as TDs)
2 pass TDs
Michigan winning and the Heisman hype getting outta control
Loving every minute
80 running 180 passing
1 running td 2 passing td's
lotsa running backs. run run run
157 on the ground, 201 through the air.
that's just a tremendous sig line, no question
