FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
He can't be that bad, I mean, really? Right?
before Hoke swiped him so he could be that bad.
Gardner better be practicing at QB this week! Good game Craig Roh.
Agree Craig Roh was an absolute beast tonight
Oh well. There's always basketball season.
I mean I have no idea after the 20-30 plays Bellamy runs why Borges keeps calling the same plays. Isn't insanity doing something that keeps getting you the same results but hoping for different ones everytime? My mind is drawing a blank.
There is no leadership on this team. No one stepped up today on that offense and they rolled over. This coaching staff better figure out this offense ASAP
Lack of leadership. Yup, right, that is the problem.
I personally thought so on the offensive side of the ball. It wasn't the main problem but when your veteran receivers are dropping the ball, it effects the confidence of the RS quarterback
Because you didn't see anyone on camera showing signs of leadership, you decide that there are no leaders on the team? How do you even come up with that? You aren't on the sideline, you don't know what is being said.
I mean, yeah, pick anything that you can't quantify and put the blame on that. Since you can't quantify it ... you can't be wrong.
I used the wrong word, basically no one stepped up on this offense. Receivers dropping passes, Bellomy on his ass the entire game, running game couldn't get going.
When the leader of the offense sits in the fucking press box all game what the hell do you expect. Leadership starts at the top.
But this comment is asinine, probably at least 90% of OCs sit upstairs.
You can't get any more near 'the top' than the press box. If Borges is in the press box, then he's near 'the top.' Therefore, Borges is in the prime spot for leadership. QED.
Is a "stupid" moderation tag.
Believe me.. His leadership is missed dearly. Lewan went from joker to whatever he is this year. Hard to take a guy seriously after he's been a clown.
Shane Morris is going to hit the gym so hard tomorrorw knowing now, more than ever that he has the chance to start next september.
long before tonight. No doubt Morris will get his chance early next season.
These comments frighten me.
You must really like losing seasons if you are so eager to have a true frosh (who played 1/2 season in high school senior year) start for this team next year.
Reply to Baba Booey - probably not since he is recovering from Mono....and here's more bad news. He will most likley lose a ton of muscle mass because he can't eat, is exhausted all the time and certainly can't work out at all. He is a mortal lock for a RS next year due to physical limitations brought about by Mono. It sucks and takes more than a year to truly recover from.
DG is our starter next season no matter what the coaches say.
He lost 10 pounds and has already gained 5+ back. He played in DLS's last game. This is mono, yes. But it doesn't last a damn year. He will be 100% fine soon, if not immediately.
Mono can easily take a year to recover 100% from. Especially considering the demands he places on his body as an elite athlete. I certainly hope he has a faster recovery but would be shocked if he is anything near 100% anytime soon. Didn't another one of our players go through something like this recently and it took him a long time to recover? I want to say it was Roh but I am not sure.
Roh had an undiagnosed wheat allergy
Denard's got a boo-boo. Borges, you know, we just uh.. we just didn't execute. We've got tremendous faith in uh.. uh.. Russell Bellomy, uh.. I just wish we would have executed a bit better, well.. yeah, I'm not happy, uhh..
Condolences. I've been there, and some things indeed can put sports into perspective.
At least we still have the avatar.
There is a reason Borges has been to so many schools. He is awful. It is not denard, Bellamys performence proves that. He needs to go If that is what we are going to see next year.
Get emotionally prepared to cheer for Sparty next week.
I hope Shane comes in and is a freshman chad henne. He should progress after that though not go backwards
He needs to be or it might be a long season next year.
because Gutierrez got hurt the week before the opener. Morris will start because he will be the best we have.
Henne had a pretty good oline and Braylon Edwards.
Most of the starters on the oline will be experienced and there won't be any wr close to the level of Edwards next year. WR is a position where UM needs a major upgrade in talent over the next couple of recruiting classes.
Most of the starters on the oline will be experienced next year? Lewan is probably gonna go pro. Barnum, Mealer, and Omameh all graduate. That's 4 out of 5 of the starters gone next year. Our O-line is gonna be very young and untested next year.
All the more reason for anyone saying they want to put in Shane right away to stop and think - he's gonna have no protection. We're better off biting the bullet on a weak season with Bellomy or Devin at QB than letting him get pounded all season long.
WOOOO HOOOO SPORTS.
Please forgive me, God.
I've had my fill of 8 p.m. Michigan games for awhile. These have not been fun. (Well, OK, I'll take one more in Indianapolis.)
The lost falls on the coaching staff: first of all they did not have the back up QB ready to play. Bellomy has looked terrible all season even when it didnt matter! Then, they dont give Gardner a chance when it was apparent that Bellomy had no chance to even manage the game. I know Gardner has not practiced at that position all season but Im sure he would not do any worse than 3-16 for 38 yds and 3 interceptions.
Is a Nebraska native.
I believe that eloquently and clearly expresses my feelings about tonights events.
To everyone who complained week in and week out about denard's performance as a qb . . . Fuck you in your fucking asses. I hate you
I have many, many co-workers who continually parrot this crap. "I'll be so happy when Denard is gone!"
Really? You goddamn hopeless fucking idiots. Careful what you wish for. You just might get it.
You're fired. You gave us the best runner on the planet and an offensive coordinator who can't tell the difference between the read option and potato salad. He compounds his ignorance of the spread option (understandable) with a stubbornness that would make Caligula himself look like a vacillating wallflower (indefensible). Top it off with a dash of horrible clock management and you have yourself a perfect little shit sandwich known as Borges Denard Fusion Cuisine.
And of course that's not enough, because on this particular night, it was revealed that we don't even use real Denard in our cuisine anymore. Try as you might, your efforts to convince us we'll be alright with Bellomy (I can't WAIT for the postgame presser) will go over about as convincingly as New Coke... and a lot more devastating.
This is not a garden-variety existential quandry I'm in following a tough loss. There IS meaning in the universe, and that meaning is pain. Wake me up after the season ends or the Big Crunch happens, whichever is more merciful.
TWIS material this is
It's like you're writing just to make TWIS... Good luck sir
I drained a sixer of KBC Lift Bridge Ale that night. Meant to bring it back to the LP to savor it. Craft beer crafted an awfully strange rant.
Do not try this at home.
Forget Green and Treadwell, we need to round out the 2013 class with QBs. If Morris gets hurt, I want three 4 star players ready to go in !
