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

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

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?
Forgive me if this is discussed elsewhere on the blog; I don't see it. Anyone know what happened to Molk? Was he playing hurt during the game?
My understanding is he was hurt during warm-ups. So it seems like he was playing hurt.
Want a winged helmet hat? See this post. Link
Per the twitters, he aggravated an old injury during pregame warmups.
"And they'll never catch him!"
maybe that's why denard's production was down.
Playing football on Wall Street
Still, he wasn't the reason for our offense being inept.
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
But our Rimington Trophy winning center losing mobility due to an ankle injury definietly didn't help. UFR will be the final judge, but my money is on some missed blocks by Molk thanks to this.
It seemed to me that anyone that got within his reach was a dead man. Anyone outside of his reach was trouble. His mobility was hindered this whole game. He played through pain and injury to seal a Michigan victory and secured his place as a BCS game champion.

Not having our best and most important guy on the line certainly affected the offense. Without Molkasaurus, you can't get the running game going. If you can't get that going, you can't do anything else. There was a huge difference when Molk went out for the season in the before Molk and after Molk ... I think he is one key to our offense functioning properly.
it was evident he couldn't go laterally. I suspect he played that game on one ankle. Those who stay.
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
The entire Oline just seemed to be off tonight, and Molk was definitely moving much more slowly and not explosive. He didnt get much push in the center.
"You're gonna eat lightning, and you're gonna crap thunder!"
Va Tech's defense is really fast and athletic. Our offense looked horrible tonight, but who cares? We won!
Those who stay will be champions!
Tough guy. After watching the first series he forced his way into the game and did OK. He will be missed.
What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve and...Those Who Stay WILL Be Champions.
Molk definitely seemed to be able to hold off his man, though. While I agree that the O-line seemed to give up quite a bit, I wouldn't put it all on Molk. I wouldn't put much of it on Molk really, but I might've missed a lot.
Photography Facebook Page. Lots of Michigan sports photos. And planes, lots of planes:
...but if his man lined up play side of him he couldn't cut him off. A lot of the running game has been built on Molk's ability to reach block, something he couldn't do today.
Molk "tweaked" his foot during warm ups
up with Hoke, down with Dope!
i dont buy it....he looked 100% on the second series...something else seems to be the reason...
Maybe he had a boo boo.
He was definitely not 100%. His lateral movement was significantly affected.
I think Molk played as well as you could with a bum ankle/foot. I really think VaTech exploited his lack of lateral quickness (because of the injury) and went inside blitz crazy and they were very successful with it in getting to Denard and stopping the run.
Those Who Stay Will Be Champions!
He had a little but of a boo boo.
MOLK ALSO GOLDEN POOP
Playing through pain to get his team a victory, now that's a Michigan man!!!!!!!
can limit the Remingtron Trophy winner and still win. Alright now! Let's Raise a fist for Let's Go Blue!
