Football Display Case
I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
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?
First player to 200/200 twice in a regular season in FBS. Wow. It took him 5 games as a starter. So how many more can he get this year?
"Shiny. Let's be bad guys."
"that's one hell of a name son'" -Coach Fred Jackson
Not just in a season. In a career!
Yeah the record is now at 2 games 200/200 in a CAREER. He can at least triple that.
Thanks for breaking the great news!
Willie Heston - 72 touchdowns; 4 National titles; 43-0-1 record; All-American; Law Degree
Denard = the great one
And to think he has 2 more years after this one!
makes it look so easy too.
He would win the heisman this year if we can get to at least 9 wins. No QB in the modern era with less then 9 has won it *(tebow as a soph won 8)*
Champions of the west, GO BLUE!
I think if we beat tuos in the finale, it's his....
I don't care who wins, as long as it's Michigan.....
Florida went 9-3 in the regular season the year Tebo won. Then they lost in Meechigan to end the year 9-4. HAIL
Denard has rushed for 905 yards in 5 games for an average of 181 yards a game.
The NCAA single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback is 1,494 yards (Beau Morgan, Air Force, 1996).
If Denard plays all remaining seven regular-season games this season he only has to average 84.1 yards a game to eclipse that record.
As a sophomore.
So everyone, PLEASE stop complaining about this team and enjoy one of the most remarkable athletic performances we will ever see in our lives!

He will post a 300/200 game (which has never been done in NCAA history) sometime this season. The 300 will probably be through the air. Maybe next week.
I have had this discussion with some friends. And I thought today was the best opportunity, but I really think if Denard gets in a shootout with a team where they just trade TDs all day, a 300/300 game is not out of the question.
I hesitate to bring this up in a public forum, because it is so outlandish of a thought, but I really think it might happen in his career if he sticks for the next 3 years.
Marques Tuiasosopo in 1999 with Washington vs. Stanford.
Marques Tuiasosopo did 300/200.
I think Marques Tuiasosopo did that 300/200 for Washington in 1999... against stanford, perhaps?
Marques Tuiasosopo, Washington vs. Stanford, 10/30/1999 (207 rushing, 302 passing)
I thought I heard it hadn't been done. Maybe it's 250/250. Whatever, Denard will get his own 300/200.
Now MGoBlogging from Seoul
Denard didn't hit 250/250. He had 244 passing and 258 rushing.
Denard has come closest with 240/240.
a couple long balls, he would have had it this afternoon. Ball to Hemingway and one to T. Robinson in particular would have gone the distance.
We'll be talking about him for a long, long time. Enjoy the thrill.
Michigan - where past NBA superstars sons come to win National Championships!
put the team on his shoulders on the final drive? The several prior drives looked sluggish. When it mattered most, you could feel Denard running with more authority, willing the team to win. What comes to mind is watching Michael Jordan, and the way you knew that he was not going to let his team lose.
...sort of the Tiger Woods of CFB (when Tiger was playing lights-out golf, that is).
Except for the fact that watching Denard stand around before the play even starts is more exciting than golf has ever been or ever will be.
Golf -- It's not a sport if you can still be in the top .001% of the world at age 65.
ONLY THREE GAMES APART.
And if that's not exciting enough for you...
Consider that he's got potentially 34 more college games left in his career.
36. You're forgetting Big Ten Championship games.
just read that last year only 6 players had over 1,000 yards passing and 900 yards rushing for the season....D-Rod did this in 5!
My self-esteem is directly related to my MgoPoints.
EXCITING player that I ever watched play. I put Steve Breaston #2 on my list.
I think that Robinson will end up as the new #1 (if he isn't already).
Will #16 be the 6th jersey retired?
"I hate losing more than I like winning." - Zack
say YES PLEASE! He would be honored to have his jersey retired due to his greatness as a QB!
You don't retire jersey numbers in CFB. You use them for recruiting - "Hey kid, we think you're pretty special, maybe you can wear Denard's number..."
Harmon40 "When the 'ol season is over, you and I know: it'll be Michigan again...MICHIGAN!"
It's been a privilege (that word sounds wierd the more you say it) to watch this guy play football. This offense is a blast to watch and even though I have about 15 cardiacs this season already, witnessing history is something special. Couldn't be happening to a better human being.
Stay healthy. Stay healthy!!!!!
Again, I hate to be debbie downer, but Vince Young did it in 2005-2006. He did it against Oklahoma State and then again in the Rose Bowl against USC. I certainly think that you include the bowl game, especially when its the championship game. That being said, there's no way Denard doesn't do it multiple more times.
That would be why I said "regular season".
Yeah I just think the stat is misleading. As I said, I think you have to count the bowl game as part of one season, especially when its against one of the best two teams in football.
Which part is misleading? The "regular" or the "season". Heh.
Well numerous people have already claimed that Denard is the first player to ever do it twice in one season, which is overlooking the truth. I would rather the stat be "the second player to do it twice in one season" than it be "first player to ever do it in one regular season," but whatever.
in the regular season and added that Young did it, but his second one was in a bowl game (not the regular season).
Denard will just have to do it again and become the first guy with three.
Agreed. Like I said, there's no way he won't do it multiple more times. I'm somewhat amazed the record is only twice in one career. Denard is going to DESTROY that record and leave it in his dust.
Denard has ~2.5 years left to throw up ridiculous stats. Is there a chance in some ridiculous shootout scenario where we get no production from the RBs that he goes for 1000 total yards (passing and running)? I think its possible.
"A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no hole is a danish"
No. I can't see him putting up 270 yards more than the record (732 total yards). He might break the record, but yeesh even that is an incredible feat.
I know from experience dude. If you know what I mean.
There aren't enough possessions in a game to gain that many yards as a team.
Woo Denard! Just keep 'em coming.
I would like to thank Kevin Newsome, Shavodrick Beaver, and most of all Terrelle Pryor for the opportunity they have provided Michigan Football.
...but wins are all that matters.
Please destroy State.
