I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

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?
Why do you guys think this will be our offense going forward? Bama has the best OL in the country, 2 insane RB's, and they actually stick to their game plan.
I don't see us looking like this at all. We have no proven RB's and uncertainty with the one that has had any amount of success at the position.
Don't get me wrong I'd love to see this kind of success at Michigan. I've looked at tape from everywhere Borges has coached. The only offense I can say that was close to manball was at auburn.
I'm hoping our giant incoming line will help us start running the ball better bc this year on third and short it seemed like we were 2-50
There is god, there is family, and then there is MICHIGAN FOOTBALL
No, it closer to a combination of Boise and Stanford. Ala San Fran off...multiple and gadget. I would say Hoke would prefer that style vs Borges philosophy.
Would I love to have a dominate power run game? In my epinion, hell yes! I disagree with Brian and many other posters. The best defense is a dominate run and time consuming offense. Both UGA and Bama are showing the world what's the best football in CFB. Great game!
"Everybody thinks of changing humanity, but nobody thinks of changing himself." - Leo Tolstoy
In the ideal scenario (key word being ideal), this will be what our offense looks like going forward. Hoke wants a mammoth O-Line, and big, bruising running backs to tote the rock 20-30 snaps/game.
I don't think it will happen next year, even if we get Derrick Green, but as our O-Line begins to mature going forward, and as we begin to build depth, I can see Michigan having a similar offensive system. I think 2014 is when everything will really start to click. Not to mention that by that point, Mattison should have fully installed his defensive death machine.
But, as you pointed out, this is contingent upon Borges' competence going forward. I have faith that he can get the job done. For now.
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
Can our band and baton twirlers look that good as well?
If you are a fairly one dimensional run team.. when that isnt happening or your down by more than 2 scores you start to run out of options. That being said, its a ton of fun to watch when your dominating someone by running right at them
I can't believe anyone here thought we could compete with Georgia
"Ohio is like a giant turd that Michigan just can't pinch off"
At times I think we could. I watched them get decimated by South Carolina.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
- Vince Lombardi
Until we can be as physical and big in our lines. We can't compete with the sec. Couple more years, then maybe. Coaching gets you to the promise land, talent gets you the promise land.
Bama's defense has looked mediocre the last quarter of the year.
We got a shootout folks.
Georgia answers. I can't wait to see either of these teams crush ND.
Wow, this is turning out to be an incredible game. Can't wait to see the winner roll over ND.
I am starting to pull for UGA, it's weird but feels right!
If we end up playing the loser of this game we get jailsexed. Worse than we did the first game of the season.
I know Alabama looked great to open the season, but the past couple of games they've looked quite beatable. Georgia played exactly two ranked teams and split. So yeah, both teams are good but this isn't the elite SEC people are used to.
Are you watching the same game? Think about either of our lines against these teams. They would be decimated.
Recent salary cap reductions for both squads have limited the potential quality of the product.
If the haters don't hate you then you're doing something wrong. - David Cone
TJ Yeldon is unstoppable. Just wow.
Yeldon is just punishing people right now
when you can just run like that, with 2 guys no less, I'm so envious of this and miss it greatly by us.
As much as we hate on the sec, can't help but marvel at how talented the Deep South is. This is a great game, and as close to a semi-pro team/game as it gets!
Bama, should have Yeldon in there, I think he's better than Lacey
It amazes me that they still get so many quality RBs with Yeldon being a true freshman. If you were Jones, Tenpenny, etc. why would you go there?
Strength equipment is expensive and guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free and can give you everything you want.
they should take a look at us and know they'll play, I can dream can't I?
There is obviously no chance of this happening, but I was really interested in seeing how an uptempo team like Oregon would fare against a really big strong running team like Alabama.
I think Oregon and Bama would be a good game. Earlier in the year I would have predicted Bama to smash them, but with the way their D has looked lately I honestly don't know who would have the advantage.
If you want there to see that there is probably a replay from the Oregon-Stanford game from a few weeks ago somewhere online.
If Stanford held Oregon to 14, I don't want to imagine the hurt that Alabama would put on Oregon.
Also, keep in mind that you would be giving Nick Saban a month to prepare, which is essentially a lifetime for him. I'd like Alabama's odds.
I can't wait for Michigan to be able to run the ball like these two teams!
Wonder how big a dent John Jenkins' food intake inflicts on Georgia's atheltics budget.
and then stalled, hmm
Capital One goes for Georgia vs. Michigan?
Born a Michigan Wolverine. UofM Hospital
I can't see Georgia holding this lead
what a stop and what a great game, this is football
This is the best sec game I've watched in a long time.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
This game makes me salivate at the possibility of getting Derrick Green. Similar prospect to both Yeldon and Gurley.
I have not overlooked DeVeon Smith
They play some good football in Ohio HS.
Green won't be the key. The key is all those OLs panning out to an elite level.
Tshimanga Biakabatuka approves this message.
Don't think Smith has the same combo of size and explosiveness.
OT, cause I don't want this game to end
At least our punter is better than ESS EE CEE punters. Both for Georgia and Alabama have been brutal tonight.
It's a start.
weak link in a moment like this.
EDIT: Derp city derp. Double derpin derp.
I'm so glad this game isn't Bama vs. LSU. My eyes would be bleeding.
Georgia girls are national champions in my book.
Georgia needs to form tackle.
TJ Yeldon is good at football.
he was not gonna be denied of that 1st down, what a stud Yeldon is
