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?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference

This game seems similar to Jan 1 2008 with no one giving us a chance and I beleive we match up better against South Carolina than people think.

I'm not sure what is really scary about South Carolina. Especially after having faced ND & Alabama this year. Clowney is obviously the first thing to look at, but we should fare as well as anyone with the #1 tackle in the game on our side. Lattimore was the other guy that made them go. I guess I don't know what I should worry about with our defense going up against their offense without Lattimore? And I don't know what their defense can do that we haven't already faced this year while playing ND, Bama, ... and even Sparty.
i'm somewhat in agreement. i mean clowney is an absolute stud and he's a top-5 pick in the draft next year, maybe first overall, so he's a pretty big threat. other than him, i'm not sure who's on their team that i should really be worried about. connor shaw is meh, lattimore is gone. their one solid win is against georgia, but they just caught georgia on a bad day. they didn't play bama, they couldn't beat lsu, and they got a whipping from florida. they almost lost to tennessee and vanderbilt. so i think we match up better than most people think. if lewan can keep clowney in check, a big if i will admit, we've got a solid shot.
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
I think Clowney has to play another year of college. Which is nuts. That's like LeBron playing college basketball.
You're not worried about their defense, given that the three defenses you've mentioned held us to an average of less than 11 points per game?
I think that is precisely what does worry me. I think this is a great match-up, but I certainly don't think this game is "not scary" because we've faced tough defenses already this season.

put on the gloves of gray.
And as Revelli played The Victors,
they laid Woody Hayes away.
I do not believe that anybody is claiming an easy win here.
On the other hand, this is not a win that would be some major upset for Michigan either. In terms of strengths and weaknesses, they have a similarity to ND, though maybe not as good. If we do not make the mistakes in this game as the ND game, it is very winable in my opinion.

What I meant is that I don't think SC's defense is anywhere near ND or Bama, they are elite. I'd put them closer to Michigan State, whom we beat. We also played all 3 of those team pre-Gardner. I would love to replay the ND game with Gardner taking snaps at QB with Denard mixed in. Basically I think we got a great matchup. I'd feel much worse if we were playing a high powered offense that would require us to score a lot of points. I think this is a game that we could win just by having the Mattison advantage. It's not unrealistic to except our defense to hold them to 10-17. I wouldn't have liked our chances against an offense like TAMU, because then we'd have to rely much more on Borges. I think they combination of Gardner and healthy Denard will get us a couple of TD's. South Carolina is a solid team, but they don't do anything that scares me.
MSU actually had a very elite defense this year and ended up at #4 in the total defense statistic. Their front 7 was pretty beastly.
"They will meet a dastardly fate here for that! There isn't a Michigan Man who wouldn't like go out and scalp those Buckeyes right now."
Underrating SC, top defense in the SEC its not just Clowney.
They have a better defense than Alabama? The #1 overall defense. In terms of yardage they are only a couple spots better than us, and they are behind MSU, ND, and Alabama. I just think the defenses are a wash, and without Lattimore I would rather have our offense.

Who is #70?
According to the official roster that would be Kristian Mateus, which doesn't make sense.
Whoever he is he is on defense because all the defenders are wearing blue in the video.

i was just wondering the same thing. This #70 towered over Jabreel Black who was holding the pad on that play. Willie Henry maybe?
I think it's Quinton Washington. He's #76, but maybe he's wearing that jersey because his got torn or something.
Q is the only person that fits the profile of that player (other than Campbell who was featured earlier in the video).
If it's Henry, he grew 3-4 inches because MGoBlue.com lists he and Black both at 6'2.
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
