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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Underrating SC, top defense in the SEC its not just Clowney.
Where's the dong forest?
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.
