This defense is absolutely horrible again and it's very frustrating to watch. Was today a speed bump or is it a sign of things to come?
Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
We barely won a game we should have won by 3 TDs.
this is the opposite of how I felt after last saturday.
I do not understand why Kris Pauloski is not kicking. He was 9 for 9 with a 50 yarder in the spring game et was not invited to summer camp. Does this make sense to anyone?
Well Mrs. Pauloski, I can assure you that your son has been given every chance to win the job during practice.
hey minimus, look at facts
You should post this on every thread today.
Oh, you already did. Sharp. Very sharp.
it just is.
It feels more like a kick to the sack.
I think we needed a wake up call. All that hype for a young team can be poison. Be happy we were able to win our wake up call, most teams don't.
Except for the fact that it's not a loss, you're totally right. After the last two years, we should not take any win for granted. Let's just move on to the next one.
No euphoria to carry me through the week **and** I know have to worry about getting to 5 wins before the MSU game.
I think you should worry about learning the difference between "know" and "now" and leave the worrying about wins to the players and coaches.
f'ing english majors trying to make themselves valuable patroling internet boards. LOL let us know when you have something to say about football.....
This is better than 2008.
expectations really plummet after a couple losing seasons, now it is ok to give up 400+ yds to a freaking FCS team...wtf
I was watching the game here in Vegas. I thought I was gonna start drinking Jack and coke by mid 2nd quarter.
On the positive side DR didn't get hurt or any major injuries for anyone else
was seeing Devin or Tate in early.
A win feels like a win. We all should have learned that we can't take any team or any "win" for granted. Survive and advance, they all count the same.
Hey, Denard looked good throwing it out there today (after the first throw).
Looking back, I bet the UMass coach wishes he would've taken his dick from out between his legs on UMass's long, 4Q drive. They huddled after every single fucking play on that drive - they were obviously just trying to make the score look as purty as possible before they took their payday and went back home. I actually felt confident after that drive, even after the blocked punt, because the Football Gods do not look upon such sissiness kindly.
And one other sour note: UCONN was soundly beaten by Temple.
How do you give up 20 pts in the 4th to FCS school and be excited about that? Our D needs revamped or overhauled, this 3-3-5 shit isn't working. Please go to a 4-3 or 3-4, the less Freshman CB/S on the field the better off this D will be..
Give me a break. We played a pretty terrible game across the board, but I highly doubt anyone would agree that installing an entire new system would fix any of it at this point; furthermore I have a hard time believing you have any knowledge of the x's and o's to explain why a 4-3 or 3-4 would be beneficial. Do you have a suggestion at corner that would be stronger than Rogers and Floyd? I personally think they've played fairly decent for 3 games now. Analyzing and being criticial of our team is cool, but don't just bitch to bitch.
Also bad, Uconn lost to Temple 30-10. If MSU beats ND our wins will all be tarnished. However, a win is infinately better than a loss and we're 3-0. That's a lot like what I expect out of MSU, so at least we've had a little practice there. Also, I wonder how much the loss of Brandon Herron (I'm assuming he didn't get in) hurt us in the run game since Roh couldn't play like a DE.
Hey, at least we're not Boise State!
Seriously, though, the third week in the season is a little early to worry about our wins being tarnished. I think both UConn and ND will pull out winning seasons, which is all that counts, really.
Felt like a win to me. Imagine if we actually. Let's improve the D and move on - please keep in mind how inexperienced our secondary is - they could improve significantly over the next few weeks.
So stop the bitching. A win is a win, move on to next week. Two years ago, we would have begged for this win. Last year, we would have said, 'It's a bump in the road". This year, It's a win, on the way to a championship. Anyone disagree, neg you to death, as you deserve. Just a bad game.
Having had some experience in this matter, I can assure you that a loss would feel a whole lot worse.
As the fanbase on the receiving end of THE HORROR, you'd think most people on here would recognize that fact.
I love this team, warts and all. this is a win and plenty of teachable opportunities for the young defense. we gave up 387 yds to app st. and lost. work hard in practice and get ready for bowling green.
This win does not feel like a loss. Not even in the slightest possible way.
this is my 1st post but i have to say, you guys sound like the spoiled rich 16 year old who got a 1year old bmw in red with grey interior and pitch a hairy fit because daddy should have gotten a brand new white one with a black interior. bet when march rolls around you wont even remember the score and fight all the nay sayers about what really matters "WINS & LOSES".
Great analogy, also UCONN didn't get handled by Temple they out gained them by 50 yards but gave up a fumble for a TD. Temple is now 3-0 with a win over last years MAC champion, and they are also coming off a 9-4 season.
It's me, who is this?
Boo fucking hoo, Michigan didn't win well enough for you
in the words of Dominick Toretto "It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile, winning is winning!"
I tend to think that a loss feels like a loss. This would have been the kind that made me want go sit in the car, turn her on, and shut the garage door...but it wasn't. It's just +1 in the left hand column, where they all look the same. We're not playing in the WAC where we have to be all that concerned with quality wins and losses. Obviously we have some issuess, as all teams do, but we are still able to break down film tomorrow and practice this week as an undefeated football team. I'll drink to that!
