What can't Woodson do?
i would find this more credible if it was about Tom Crean
What can't Woodson do?
Defeat Zoltan in a battle for space domination?
Blue in South Bend - I love that you took my son's quote as your signature. Awesome! My wife and I were cracking up when we saw this.
Your son is wise beyond his years.
fucking ON them in the first half, deal with all this in the second.
I stand by my Tate comment. His rugby punts were great.
this is one thing I've wondered about. We (and others) debuted the rugby punt a couple of years ago, and it seemed like an amazing thing because the odds of getting it to bounce off of one of the opponent's players went up at least 15-20%, and if it didn't you usually still got the roll anyway and reduced chance of a return. Why don't we (or others) still do that more?
If close game, continue to watch Denard rack up numbers.
going to the freep.com
I want Denard to play every down for my amusement.
Obviously if the game is close in the waning moments, RR isn't going to jeopardize a win just to "keep his word". HOWEVA, this might also be a hidden message to the team:
1) Defense, get the job done this week and stuff these jokers.
2) Offense, keep doing what you're doing, sans field goal tries (aka - Endzone or BUST!)
I'm sure that we all feel a bit more comfortable about BGSU than we do about UMass (hindsight), and this game should (hopefully, for the love of God) be a blowout.
Unless it's a trick play, if the game is close in the 4th Denard will be the only one playing.
need backups at the ready
If Drob doesnt play a lot I hope the plays he does have are passing plays so he can stay sharp going into the Big Ten season.
I think now is the time to do it. We need to figure out where we stand if Denard gets hurt or if we get in a jam, and need to put a different style on the field to change things up.
Didn't he say all three were going to play against Connecticut too?
RR said Gardner's redshirt wouldn't be burned on Gardner only getting in for a couple of plays each game. However, through 3 games Gardner has been on the field for a total of 3 plays.
He sure does hand off the ball great though...
I think he ran it once also for -2 yards also. Game experience gotta have it lol
I just want to see Denard throw some quick slants. We very rarely call slants and I don't know why, but they could really be nice to pull people out of the middle and take the edge off the pass rush.
if UM is losing or involved in a tight game, it will be the Denard show.
I bet RR was hoping to get all 3 QB's some time against UMass but unfortunately UM fell behind and then wasn't able to maintain a comfortable cushion. I think RR said after they went up 35-17 that if the defense would have been able to get the UMass offense off the field without scoring, he was going to start doing some substitions.
If we don't see all 3 quarterbacks then it means we still suck royally on defense. I know what Tate can do so I'm not worried if he comes into the game if it's semi-close but Devin doesn't have any extended playing time under his belt and we don't need him coming into a close game and throwing a pick six or something along those lines. Get the game in hand and then give each one a series or two unless we continue to pull away.
...shouldn't make comments like that, IMO. If the game is close throughout and DRob is playing well, DRob should stay on the field.
no other qb will sniff the field if we're down 17-7
I think at some point we have to acknowledge that Devin Gardner has feelings and emotions too. In 2 games so far, he was next up off the bench if Denard couldn't play. That has to build up an expectancy in a young player's mind. He now likely expects to be called 2nd. In all likelihood he has prepared himself mentally as the 2nd string quarterback. And unless he has done something to warrant demotion, you have to give him the call 2nd up or risk hurting the young guy's confidence.
These kids are 18 years old at least. They aren't pieces of glass whose confidence will be shot unless handled with a big "fragile" stamp. Athletes who don't know how to eat humble pie don't get to start in D-1 football.
The utter condescension you show applies to five-year-olds and makes you look incredibly ignorant.
I agree with you, but I think you're being a little bit excessively harsh on El Guapo. You should ease off. Mgoblog posters have feelings and emotions too. You don't want to wreck El Guapo's confidence and have him never post again.
There is, in all likelihood, little real importance to this statement.
You are entitled to your opinion my friend. But no way do I risk tinkering with the confidence of the future franchise quarterback for Michigan. You obviously think nothing of that. That is where we differ.
You are making the questionable assumption that Gardner will even take note of these statements.
Mallet, Threat , Tate, Denard, Devin, who next year?
Denard(all world) is only a soph. Devin is a fresh. So the franchise will have to sit for 3 years to get a shot at the heisman when he is a Senior.
When Forcier comes out, I think we should all give him a huge ovation
I think that would be a classy move. The kid has done a lot for this University. And I think it will happen too.
I think we can do both.... help Devin maintain his confidence and show our appreciation to Tate. I don't think they are mutually exclusive. Hopefully we get up on the opponent enough so that both see plenty of action.
We should definitely give one to the special teams (if we're kicking or receiving doesn't matter to me), and also when the defense comes out for their first series too.
...he's thrown his third pick. That would not be good.
just put all three in the game on the same play, run a trans-trans-continental. promise kept.
