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?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Easily my shortest post of original content at MGo ever
the quality of league/quality of suppoting cast contrast we could talk about forever.
I dont think Henne losses that much, if ever, against the current Big 10. Then again, give Denard Braylon, Avant, Breaston, Manningham, Arrington, Hart, etc etc etc I dont think he'd ever lose a game

Henne's win % was actually a bit low by Michigan QB standards that preceeded him. For example, Tom Brady was 20-5 as the starting QB or 80%.
I believe Griese was 17-5 as a starter, which is good for a 77.3% winning percentage. Rick Leach was 38-8-2, which would be 81.3% if the two ties are indeed 1/2 of a win each. Jim Harbaugh slightly edges Leach with 81.7% (working from old box scores here).

. . . because a review of MGoBlog this week would reveal that Denard is an inaccurate passer, a poor decision-maker, can't read defenses, and shouldn't be trusted with any reads, audibles, or game management of any sort. Not only that, but the rest of the offensive side of the ball is basically bereft of talent, with the possible exception of one lineman. So, Jamie, your winning percentage stats must be wrong.
Man, that 2011 OSU game seems like such a distant memory.
23-10 , dudes a winner. That's better than freaking Kork Coupons through 33 games.
All in for some manball.
"..would reveal that Denard is an inaccurate passer, a poor decision-maker, can't read defenses, and shouldn't be trusted with any reads, audibles, or game management of any sort."
Then what is it?! It's just a random decision to gameplan the way they have been?! Not saying the above is always true (Denard can and does makes some great throws, even in the clutch) but looking at an overall package one might find that to be somewhat of accuarate description.
Most J.V , High school and pee wee teams put their best athelete at the QB position. A large majority of high school QB's can't throw the ball to save their lives and thats why so many high school offenses run 70-80% of the time. Even high schools with a 5 star college prospect at the QB position tend to throw less than college teams with a "terrible" QB.
The Nfl right now is overflowing with QB talent. offenses are passing more with a lot more success than in years passed. Manning, Brees , Brady, Stafford, Matt Ryan and Aaron rodgers still continue to carve up NFL secondarys. RG3 will be a star in the NFL for many years not because he can run but because he can throw accurately and takes care of the football. Cam Newton.... not so much.
You can't run the ball with your QB in the NFL too much unless you really don't like him or have no other choice. Look at Michael Vick for instance, the fastest guy to play the QB position in the NFL but after a few big injuries he doesn't run like he used to. Instead he tends to trust his arm. RG3 has already missed time in his rookie season
As a high school QB, I stood in the pocket and considered career options as well.
all the dude wanted was his rug back...
