This was maybe the worse team I have seen Michigan play. So what would the score be if Carr was the coach? I think in the high 30s/40s. I say we see more types of games like this under RR when playing inferior teams(50+). The game got this tin head thinking a bit.
What would have the score been under Carr?
at half and probably 49-3 as the final. This game was going to be boring any which way you slice it.
its the 52-10 walloping of a Big Ten opponent that I hope will eventually be the difference between Rodriguez and Carr.
Well said. Thats is the difference we are all looking for.
I don't really care. He is not the coach anymore.
Why do you even waste the time to post if you don't care? It's just for chatting purposes.
I am just simply more interested in where we are going, not where we've been.
You know, no one is forcing you to post on this topic if you aren't interested in it.
One of the greatest things about Michigan Football is the history.To say that you don't care about the past is to short sell the entire program. Do you think we don't bring up our history and our tradition to potential recruits? Do you think we don't use history and tradition as motivation to current players.
And what is your signature? Shut up hypocrite.
Never said I don't care about the past. You should read more carefully. The past is very important. I just think it is more fun to think about the possibilities ahead than to be critical of things in the past.
I was thinking about how a much a Carr team would've scored as well. Granted that Del St. might be the worst team Michigan's played in a long, long time but I agree with the 30-40 pt range but with Del. St. scoring 13 or so.
Carr would have had to have punted on some 3rd downs to keep us down to 30-40. DSU is really, really bad. I mean, we just set a school record for yardage (and scored our highest point total in 17 years) despite playing the entire game without our top two tailbacks, and all but one drive without our starting QB.
There is no choice to score at least 50 vs this team. This is the worst team Michigan has played in 90 years. Seriously people. Unless you take a knee and punt you have to get at least 50.
seems about right to me with only 1 touchdown after half time.
45-13 after we baked them cookies and gave them a lesson about family values.
my guess would be 51-10. Lloyd wouldn't have thrown in the 2nd half even if it was 3rd and 16. (Just for the record I have no problem with cone and sheridan throwing the ball in the second half, but I think Lloyd still would have went I-form iso on 3rd and long)
I don't see the score being that much different. Carr would also have taken the starters out. Our 3rd/4th string was still better than DSU
Our 4th string QB led two scoring drives with our 4th or 5th string RB. They threw a couple of times, but they weren't airing it out. RR did every thing he could to keep the score down, but the plays were there for the making. Carr would have posted a similar score.
By the way - the "DAVID CONE" chant from the student section was all win all the time. We tried to get it going in Section 9, but it didn't really catch on. I so wanted Da Coner to get a TD pass or even take it in on his own.
Isn't it kind of like not being able to get over an ex-girlfriend to keep thinking "what if's" about Lloyd?
DSU would have been on the cover of SI.

Mention Lloyd in a thread and watch it derail.
He has become a person that draws more Michigan love and hate than anyone in recent memory.
The score would have been somewhat closer. My guess is near the spread 49-13.
Would it have been closer because Lloyd's was a guy concerned how things "looked" to alums and others, or that his offense was less explosive or both? Don't know.
could have kept it respectable........I do know he would have kicked two FG's in the 2nd half instead of going for 4th downs.
Lloyd often did the same thing - forego the FG and call a vanilla play that gives the defense a chance to keep us off the scoreboard.
You DO know he isn't the coach anymore? So like, the purpose of this kind of stupidity is?
Leave Lloyd alone to walk off into the sunset--he did do something no other UM coach has done in 60 years (and doesn't look like will be done soon)--win a national championship.
Congrats on all the boners for beating one of he worst teams this side of the Detroit Lions, ladies. Now let's get out there and beat this Penn State team that so many don't think is very good, and the Ohio State team that looks more and more mediocre.
Because if there is an Internet thread about him somewhere, he won't have a peaceful retirement.
I think the more interesting question is, what would the score have been if we'd played them last season?
I'd say something like 34-10. (The TD would come, naturally, off a fumbled punt.)
