Unfortunately it's more a preview of the team rather than a review of our utter domination of Nebraska. Still, a good read.
Michigan Monday is up
Big deal...it's like 2-3 nice words about everything overshadowed by 5-6 negative words. Fuck the stupid O-Zone or whatever the hell its called. BEAT THE BUCKS!
He downgrades UM at almost every position. His evaluation of Kovacs in particular is absurd. Kovacs has had an All BIg Ten season, but all he can muster is that he is not a liability. Yeah, okay.
You can read that and even see in his words as much as he tried to bring up the past that he knows what is coming this weekend.
Try to say we get nullified on the pass rush well that is because we keep our lanes and dont over pursue giving up long runs from mobile QB's.
One thing he forgets to realize is that yes earlier in the year Denard was bad. Since the Iowa game Denard while still is slightly behind his WR's he has been much better in getting himself square and putting the ball in much better spots.
It's gonna be a war but I like us better in the Trenches and in this game that is all that matters. You win the trenches you win this game.
Only a single passing mention of Mike Martin? Did he even watch the NEB game? Martin will eat Brewster alive. There is twice as much space talking up Countess. Not taking anything away from Countess ... he will be an all conference player in a year or two. Mike Martin is a monster right now.
When I opened the link it seemed like I got a virus, did this happen to anyone else? I closed the window as quickly as I could and then immediately got under my desk and unplugged the computer. The window looked like it was installing something, and it took me at least 10-15 seconds to get under my desk to unplug the machine, did the virus install?
...and all I got was this:
"Robinson will fumble and he will throw interceptions"
Could be wrong but i can only remember the one game where he had a problem holding the ball (cant remember the game, i know fail on my part but i remember he had 2 fumbles that game). The interception remark cant really be argued. Am I forgetting a ton of fumbles?
In fairness, who among us is an objective voice of reason during Michigan's games? Not I.
What do you expect? Quoting from "Roll Tide/War Eagle", he's got too much Buckeye in him. I hope we beat them by 40.
or does he sound depressed? Like he couldn't even get up for this, because his precious Buckeyes are down, and so is he, and he didn't want to discuss our game with Nebraska cause it's all too depressing? I take this as a good sign--Michigan Monday sees what's coming, as is averting its eyes.
This is his only alternative. I mean, what do you expect him to say?
"Screw it. We're going to get raped with a nail-studded broomstick."? Not so much.
"Jeremy Gallon continues to be solid as a punt returner, but he is way overdue for a very muffy day."
He is also due to take one to the house.
Toussaint is due to both get held to 20 yards and break 200.
Denard is due to throw 5 TD's with no INTs and vice-versa.
Mike Martin is due to break both the center and the backup in half and... wait. No and. That's happening.
You forgot about Lewan latching on to some poor DE and riding that donkey halfway to Fingerle Lumber.
Toussaint had 25 yards on 14 carries against NW.
I'm saying that counts as being held to 20 yards, so 200 it is.
I'm expecting 37 carries for 313 yards.
"Alright, you primitive screwheads! Listen up! THIS is my boomstick!"
"It's a 200 lbs, 5-10 Running Back. Michigan's top of the line. You can find this in Schembechler Hall. This baby was made in Youngstown, OH. Runs about a 4.5 40. It's got game-changing speed and makes fantastic cuts. Go Blue. Go M Blue. EVERYBODY GOT THAT?!?"
Very nice, love the Bruce Campbell reference. Classic movie.
So Michigan Monday is too painful for Gerdeman to actually write this week. I smell blood in the water.
started writing it.
Anyone who still thinks that is a "good read" is probably suffering from battered Wolverine syndrome.
I disagree. Sure, he takes a couple of shots here and there, but that's to be expected - he is a buckeye and he does have an audience to write to. Besides that though, he is usally pretty balanced. This week's writeup, however, was not up to recent standard. Take that in a good way, he can see what is coming and is a little bitter about it. I would be too if the situation was reversed.
