DAYS UNTIL THE BOYZ FROM DA PAHOKEE CELEBRATE THEIR VICTORIOUS HOMECOMING!
You're late punk. I was looking for this thread!
looking for a big day from V Smith on 1/1/11
should be an electric atmosphere and will be a great opportunity for this team to show what they can do under Rich Rod with a long period of time to prepare for their opponent.
( '08 vs. Utah)
('09 vs. WMU)
('10 vs. UConn)
All three were the season openers and arguably the best defensive performance of each of those three seasons.
This is actually a really good point. RR's teams at Michigan have consistently played their some of their best football (if not their best) in the opening game. Cf., LC's teams, who consistently played poorly in the opening games.
first, we lost to Utah, and second, WMU is kind of a pushover.
Nonetheless, I think the time off benefits us more than MSU.
We were in the game though, which is more than can be said for Utah's last opponent that year.
Utah ended up being a damn good team in 2008.
For the sake of the argument he's making, they may actually be the most impressive team of the 3 listed even though we lost; considering how good they were and how bad we were in the fall of 2008.
You do remember 2008 right? If you don't, I'm actually envious of that.
I read his point and thought "why haven't i ever thought of or heard that argument before, that is a damn good point."
This actually made me more confident about the bowl game. Now there's a 95% chance we win!
Since we haven't been able to witness Rrod's preparation for a bowl, do we have any data accumulated yet on his bowl record?
Don't forget the performance coming off the bye week against PSU this year!!!
A bye week to rearrange the pieces of a young, burned out, confused and banged up defense is not the same as a month to prepare for a bowl game.
UNEXCEPTABLE!!@!@! Only days until game day, now's not the time to be slacking off!!
Maybe he did it on purpose for the maximum two's that he could get....
I see what you did you wizard...
How BADASS would it be to see Roundtree step out onto the field wearing a #1 jersey? Helluva an introduction...
can we pick some more boys up from pahokee while were down there please. they won't have to chase rabbits around ann arbor but they can if they want to.
Only until we see CC threads with a shred of new info.
I'm so excited I can't sleep! This is out of control. We are going to see the fastest team in college football! MSU is about to see what speed and explosive violent power does to their SEC ego.
I have a feeling Mike Martin is going to have an Incredible Hulk moment. Go Blue!!!
...which would indeed be powerful.
Now everyone sing along to this:
days until RICH RODRIGUEZ's Michigan team defends their own turf by blowing out Western.
Also there are...
days until D-Mo and Michigan bounce back from the Purdue loss to defeat Penn State.
It on there yesterday? Did I miss it?
That picture of Brandin Hawthorne always scares me. Such a blank, hate-filled stare
I love this picture. One of the best, IMO.
Don't forget meeeeeeeee
That #9 is my favorite player on the roster. He plays the game of football like it was meant to be played. Of course I like the others such as Roy, Molk, DR, etc. but Tay is the man! Just watch Dilithiums first ever TD......all you need to do is follow #9. Glad we have the Pahokee pipeline!
Can't wait. GO BLUE!
