You called it earlier...
Everyone should get a life and realize that football is only a game.
I agree. This is the third game this season where things could have just as easily gone our way. While this is mainly due to killing ourselves with turnovers, missed assignments on defense, etc etc, you also have to factor in that we are a very young, inexperienced team playing in a new offense and new defense. That being said, we are far better than we were last season. Nobody should have expected us to really be a great team this season. We are making progress gradually and another offseason and another recruiting class will hopefully speed up the progress that we are making. These losses are discouraging, but it is unreasonable to call for RR to be fired so that we could win games again. Firing RR would only set us up for 2008 all over again.
at this point in the season, would our team now beat our team from last year at this point (assuming threet is playing and not garbage sheridan)? i say no. this is primarily based on the fact i remember our o-line from last year actually being pretty decent towards the end of the season while this year's is a complete mess.
well the players from this season being on the same field as their 2008 selves may cause tear in the universe, but other than that i believe that this team would win because 2008 michigan was even worse against the spread than 2009 michigan. Also, 2009 michigan offense is much better than 2008 michigan offense.
yeah but 2009 defense is much much worse than 2008 defense.
It seems that if we were just 10% better, we would be 8-2 right now. This gives me hope for next year.
On the other hand if we were 10% worse we may only have 1-2 wins. That makes me pissed.
how much more obvious must I be?
Honest question for all of you who are saying "fire Rich Rod!" "unacceptable!" etc etc- Why do you keep saying the people who support RR/are more optimistic than you are blind? Do we not see how bad the defense is? I propose that you are the blind ones because no matter what, Mary Sue Coleman has recently said RR will get 4-5 years. So why don't you save yourself a massive coronary and go root for someone else or better yet support the kids who you claim to be die hard fans of?
if our team puts up 35 points we should win the fucking game. no excuses. must happen. the defense is terrible and I really dont know if they are going to be a whole lot better next year. i need to start brushing up on pagan sacrifice rituals to the football gods.
