rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

BGSU beats Marshall today 44-28.
1-2 after previous losses to Troy (30-27) and Tulsa (33-27)
All In Worldwide
Marshall averaged 7.1 yards/carry.... So I think we'll have some success on the ground?
If we can stop BG one time I think we will be okay.
That's a great observation. Our offense puts tremendous pressure on opposing offenses to score, helping our defense.
A lot of defenses out there with the same issues as ours, don't have the luxury of playing with an offense like ours.

Bowling Green scores a lot of points so I think we're definitely in for another shootout. 45-42 M
Champions of the west, GO BLUE!
I hope this game kicks our defense's ass into gear.
While our defense looked like a steaming pile of dog crap let's not presume that things won't change over the next week. If that INT isn't fumbled...
Let's keep some perspective.

Well I looked at Bowling Green's roster on rivals
If this is up to date, thats 10 senior starters on that defense. I'm not really concerned about how our offense putting up points though. Its the 10 upperclassmen on offense that bothers me.
We will look better next week. Greg Rob can work with the d, and we can hopefully get a little more confidence in are d again. They need to get too the qb to take pressure of are secondary. If we can do that on games are d will look better. Today umass had a year to throw each play and the result. They picked are secondary a part. And aside from not pressuring the qb, they couldn't stop the run. Hopefully they will look better next week though. I have faith in them
On the pass defense I keep hanging onto the unverified theory that we withheld pressure blitz packages to not tip off future opponents. We did mostly base pass rushing, especially after we jumped up a couple scores in the second half.
played with better grammar than are secondary.
It is your birthday.
Do their players have a pulse? Do \they have an offensive coordinator? If so, I'd say we're screwed
is their as a Grad student and handles all kicking duties
The only thing I'm looking ahead to is a beautiful sack of White Castle burgers my wife is bringing me home after a long afternoon of drinking and notching another W in the win column. I will save my predictions and breakdowns until after I shake this hangover with an a.m. Bloody Mary.

I promise you'll not see another game like that from us again. - Craig Roh
Methinks Mich, ND, & MSU are all Top 30ish teams.
The transitive property doesn't work in football for single game comparisons. Mich beats ND on the road w/ ND's QB out for nearly a half, but also blows drives on killer penalties and missed FGs. MSU pulls out an OT victory at home.
The MSU-Mich game will be its own beast.
I attended both the Michigan game and the Bowling Green game (where I am a student) and can honestly say UMass is better than Bowling Green. The Falcons lost their biggest offensive weapons in their quarterback Tyler Sheehan and wide reciever Freddie Barnes. While Willie Geter is no slouch at running back, their offensive line is not as impressive as the UMass one.

Did anyone else notice a lot of substitutions on the D during the game? -- I am assuming this was to get game experience for the backups.
I don't normally notice specific players when Michigan is on D - but saw Leach get owned like 3 run plays in a row on one drive. I don't think hes seen the field much at all up to this point. Does anyone know if this was injury based or just what I hypothesized (sp?) above?
I guess I'm just looking for any silver lining / excuse for the D today so I can sleep between now and the start of the B10 season.
In other glass-half-full news - even pending the final result in Tucson both Iowa and Wisconsin looked beatable today (UW particularly if we can keep the offensive pace as fast as ASU did) and PSU doesn't look like they can put up many points - even against Michigan - if we can score against their very good D. So I'm saying there's a chance........
You need to realize that MARK MAY agrees with you. Perhaps you will reconsider whether that is a sane opinion
is take care of business and grow as team from the BG game. Win big or win ugly like today, just win and get it done with.
Then focus like hell on Indiana.

that our defense improves. Simple as that.
Our poor defense puts tremendous pressure on our offense to score almost every time we have the ball. Our even worse kicking game adds even more pressure to the offense to score TD's since a FG is pretty well out of the question. Then our equally poor punting game makes it seem like we have to go for any 4th and short that comes up or risk another kicking disaster.
But its all going to get better...............................right?
I down-vote ANYONE that puts the "t" in front of osu. Don't be a tool.
Oh yea....screw msu too.
We need to have Roh line up as a DE. It seems like the D as a whole plays more aggressive whenever that happens.
