this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
days until our offense is looking gorgeous against Western.
There are also...
days until we defeat Lansing and make them feel self-conscious about how their mascot wears a skirt.
There are also...
days until we BEAT OHIO!
Better late than never. Good point on Sparty and his cross-dressing tendencies.
I used to collect those but now with upper deck having the NCAA license the M cards are even better.
Georgeous Borges? If that isn't already his nickname, it probably should be.
I know this is OT from this topic, but I am super bored at work and need to fill the summer football void with some sort of discussion, so...
I have been thinking about our offense for this upcoming season. It seems like last year we were one offensive piece away from being truely great. We simply couldn't score in the red zone when we needed to, especially against B1G teams (I still have a hard time using that acronym). An argument could be made that our offense will arguably be 'better', ie more efficient, more scoring when given the chance, but less eye-popping numbers. Reasons I believe this: (1) Denard will be hopefully be healthier from a play to play basis, (2) more aggressive, physical offensive, which is obviously needed in the B1G, (3) Essentially the same offense (minus Schiling), just one year's worth of maturing and strength increases. People (not very many on this board, thankfully) tend to forget that Denard was a 1st year starter- the occasional bad read and flustered pocket moment are allowed. (4) Al Borges is not a moron, and seems like he will adapt to what he has. My question is, do you guys think our offense will be "better" or worse, and how so? I'm a little verklempt, talk amongst yourselves.
Cam has the death stare going in that picture.
Thanks for filling in on these, I was missing the "There Are...." post for today. I wonder what kind of notes Borges has written on that paper he's holding....
1.) Denard is indeed pure dilithium
2.) Lewan can in fact throw donkeys a mile
3.) Note to self: get middle name changed to Gorgeous
ekk...that little rb from umass had quite the day against the '10 defense. Only can get better from here.
