Football Display Case
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
thoughtful piece from Jacobi on middle finger lady
Based on last Saturday's gameplan, I think Borges can do a decent Crisler impersonation.
If Denard can throw then let him throw and take them by surprise on the plays where he lines up as QB and everyone thinks he's running.
"He has no idea that Charles Woodson can jump fifteen feet in the air, come down acrobatically, and get his foot inside this football field. Folks, you can watch football a long, long time before you see another play like that."
Which way works better? Denard - QB + Gardner WR or DG QB + Denard RB/WR/QB?
Clear answer at this point: DG QB, Denard gets 20+ touches at RB/WR/QB = Good chance to beat OSU.
I'll second Brady Hoke's pick. He has a habit of doing the right thing.
Zone read with Devin (QB) and Denard (RB)... who then might just chuck it (up for grabs)
Total coach speak and so obvious I dount Urban prepares for Denard throwing anything. He literally could not even grip or hold the ball with his right hand just a few days ago. On runs, he carried in his left. On the two passes he caught he had to stop the ball with his left and then flat hand the ball tight with his right. Stunned Iowa didnt put 10 in the box when he lined up at QB as he, sadly, will not throw another pass for Michigan ever again (maybe bowl game) unless it's a shotput like push pass.
So, the question is moot. Gardner is our QB and Denard will rotate positions again.
How typical. I start a thread talking about exactly what we saw against Iowa, and are likely to see against Ohio, and I get docked, chastized, and torn apart. Now, after it is clear that Denard is likely not going to heal enough to throw, and Devin has emerged in a big way, board members show no sign of contrition towards others who saw this coming, and are jumping on the bandwagon as if they were supporters all along.
Interestingly, is the fact that Borges said that he had been working on this for 18 months. Obviously, circumstances and depth issues kept the Denard Hybrid offense from becoming a reality -- until the injury that is.
This is what I was talking about when I said, "this could be a blessing in disguise." We're seeing that blessing unfold right before our eyes. Denard is getting to do what he does best, and is forcing the opposition to account for one of the best runners in CFB history. Devin has emerged as an accurate and efficient passer, and a capable runner.
I know I won't get back to my previous point level, but I think that whomever docked me should at least appologize because I was 100% correct!
Go Blue, Beat Ohio!
Sing to the colors that float in the light;
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
For me it does not realy matter who starts, however who plays the majority of snaps at QB who can be effective! That said I have faith that DG has more potential to move our offense on scoring drives that will control the clock and keep BM off of the field to a greater degree. Also my opinion is such that DR may see some time in packages and possibly even throw but will ultimately effect this game with his legs from a TB/slot standpoint! DG is our future and DR's future in the NFL is an Antwan Randle-El/Hines ward type guy making millions. When the NFL scouts/execs see him in the backfield and spread out and moving in formations they will see what they want (DR will have a great Combine/Workout) and he will go high in the draft. With that he will reep millions in contract and incentives clauses and because he is DR and complete awesomeness he will then return to Michigan to be a big donor and continue his love of A2 community. Which can only HELP The Team, The Team, The Team in the future! Here is to a healthy DR with good legs under him, DG with a lots of Qb reps and a game day of game day efforts/execution, a 'gorgeous' offensive scheme & finally an excellent 'D' flying around and containing BM! Beat O - hi - O!
I am thankful to live in an awesome country!!!
