I think we can win 4 of those.
people responding to this question in other threads that you had to get them to do it here?
Hopefully that's where Borges will be coaching next year.
University of Pheonix maybe?
Undefeated at home, 1-2 on the road. Don't know which road game we win but I could see a loss against any of them.
You think we beat Ohio?
Yes. And i think they get shut out against MSU. Wouldn't that just be so Al Borges of them to do?
7-5 if we are lucky.
I think we can win 4 of them as well. I also think we can lose all 6 of them.
I think we can win four for sure, but I don't think it pulls us out of the mediocre spectrum.
I don't consider 9 wins mediocre.
4?? Really after this game I can't see us beating OSU or MSU and honestly I think Nebraska and NW will b a shoot out like this game
You realize the team played really good football made some mistakes and didn't execute 100 but they played well. The coaching was sub par. We had out scored them 24-3 in the second half before holy crap drive. This is a good team but is not good enough to overcome many mistakes while the coaches are calling plays trying to limit them.
You realize those same coaches will be coaching in the upcoming games right?
I don't enjoy watching this team, unlike any other past team.Tired of the turnovers by Gardner,unable to open a hole for the backs, and just struggling every week against shitty teams we should be pounding.Not sure about Funk,Borges, or even Joke at this point.
If this season has shown us anything it's that the Big10 sucks and there's not a single consistent team in the bunch. Wisconsin and Ohio are the best and I actually think Wisconsin is a little better but had to play in Columbus and will probably miss out on the Rose Bowl because of it. There's no telling what will happen in any of our games from this point on.
Wisconsin was getting manhandled in Columbus until we went into Tressel-mode. If you think they're better than OSU, idk man.
Wisconsin was in know way getting manhandled by OSU. That is crazy.
Jared Abbrederis: 10 catches for 207 yards. Single-handedly made the OSU secondary look silly, especially Bradley Roby.
Now, I'm not saying Wisconsin mandhandled OSU or anything like that, but that game was surely not a one-sided affair.
we are more likely to lose any one of our remaining games and could lose all 6.
We have an unfixable Oline, so we'll suffer down the stretch.
we beat indiana, because i mean...please?
we beat msu, because i mean...plase?
we beat nebraska, because it's at home.
we lose to northwestern, because they're due.
we lose to iowa, because we seem to do that.
we lose to osu, because i mean...obviously.
you say "i mean" alot
You spell "a lot" wrong, a lot.
6-0 bow down in 1.5 months
I would cry laughing if we somehow go 11-1 this season. All the chicken littles would eat so much crow.
That's not happening and I will bet you my life savings
The only data I need is Borges being OC and the body of work against crap teams
I hate this. If we win out, that's great. But it doesn't change the fact that we've played terribly in many areas so far this year. You're judged on the whole body of work, not just the second half. Not even just W's and L's. Most fans on this site are saavy enough to know what constitutes good football and progress, and many are right to be critical after shit like tonight (and after Akron and after UConn). What don't people like you understand about that?
I think people are rightly pissed off at Funk. If the O Line does not show considerable improvement halfway through next year then I think we pull a Wisco and let it ride. The reason I say that time frame is the O Line is still very young although Magnusson showed some things yesterday and next year is when we will have a lot of still young but talented O linemen that should take a huge step forward. They will all be at least redshirt freshmen and many of them will be redshirt sophomores. We should be able to get a solid enough line out of that and if we don't then a coach needs to go.
What I will say about Borges and Hoke is that by now they should know one of if not the greatest weaknesses of our team is the interior O line so why the heck do we keep running at them expecting different results?
1-5 or 2-4 IF the Hoke and Borges keep insisting on manball/running into eight in the box.
At least 4-2 if they adjust to our personel and keep flinging it at Funchess.
Funchess, he of the two dropped TD passes, is the entire key to our season.
In before the delete and everyone continues to freak out
I doubt everything that is optimistic about our outlook. Currently, I need more beer.
Currently, I need more beer.
This is the only thing that has made sense tonight, thank you sir
We lose one of Indiana and Iowa, win one of Nebraska, MSU, and NW. Lose to Ohio. I was optomistic up until tonight, but it's clear we have no run game at all, and Gardner isn't the type of QB that can reliably carry the load. We saw two more new OL tonight and already benched another, so it's not like there are options to try to find something that works. Our D will keep us in some games, but ultimately not being able to run will lose us 4 of the 6 remaining.
I'm not a coach or anything but when your tailback has 20 carries and is averaging 0.6 yards a carry and only seemed to have 2 carries for over 1 yard it's time to try something different. I really think Funk lost his job today if not the last month. This is as unacceptable as Gergs defenses where
agree, running game kills us, we are no different than last year.
Fitz is the new Smith.
Fred Jackson needs to retire.
These backs run like they wear glass cleats.
I'm not really one to call for a coach's head, but changed my mind about Funk after this game. I can't remember a Michigan team that was to a man so completely inept at run blocking.
He won't be fired. He might deserve to be fired, but he won't be.
We are so easy to defend. Just load up the box to stop the run. Borges will oblige. Then wait for Gardner to implode on 3rd and 12.
I'm still hoping for an 8 win season and think it is very attainable. Just need to fire everyone and replace our entire team with 100 Jabrill Peppers
Replace the team with high school kids?
is quietly having second thoughts. I think we can wave goodbye to Hand.
We go 8-4 with losses @MSU, @Northwestern, and home to Ohio State. We win against Indiana, steal one from Nebraska, and win @Iowa.
Need more information, is Borges still the O coordinator for all of these games?
The first year was an abberation we will lose at least 4 games per year for as long as Borges is our OC.
