"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

I don't want to hang him from the building yet. Greg Robinson..yes. There was some poor coaching the defense doesn't make any strides and at this point I think we all know it's not going to get any better any time soon. It must really suck for our guys on offense going into every game knowing they have to score 40 to win it. Someone start a website or something please.

|4 years 27 weeks ago||I've wanted Robinson out for||
I've wanted Robinson out for quite some time. If RR gives him another year we're going to have the same results. I'm tired of this paper thin bend and break shit. It doesn't work in the big ten and it didn't work anywhere else he's been. The guy just stands there and makes zero adjustments while RR and crew act clueless. With such a great offense it is a damn shame that we can't compete on defense at any level. It's actually ridiculous. I honestly think we could throw together steve sharik and a couple other guru's from this site and have a better product then what's on the field right now. In fact, I know we could. Mgoblog could run the defense better then Robinson could ever dream of.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Seriously bro you are a tool||
Seriously bro you are a tool with no life. We all know there is no shot at michigan winning a title or even winning the rest of our games. But you can keep feeding this blog your garbage predictions for all the mgoworld to see. I'm sure once Michigan loses it's second game of the season you're going to feed us some bullshit about how you predicted 10-2 national championship. The bottome line:
THE_Knowledge is a bust.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Michigan State is the most||
Michigan State is the most balanced team we have played so far and it's going to show on the field. We need this one for national perception, bowl birth, and the fans that have watched in horror since 2008.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Believe it or not there are||
Believe it or not there are actually a lot of people around the country including Cam Newton that think he is better then Denard. I think that kind of talk is assinine. Denard is one of a kind. Cam Newton is another Pryor at best.

Defense plays like it did last week = Sure loss
Defense plays like it did against ND = Sure victory
It's all on you D.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||This is not OT bro. Before||
This is not OT bro. Before the season I had us at 8-4 and that's where I like us to finish. With Denard we could steal a game or two so that's the big upside. People are so quick to jump on the fact that we're young and don't have a lot of depth on the defense, but at this point in the year we should see some individual improvement, to which, I've seen none. I think some of the underclassmen are going to start to grasp things a bit more as the season progresses and more is asked of them. Our defensive coaches have to do a better job of putting our youngsters in better position to make plays. I'm excited going forward at the prospect of a new years day bowl game and so should all of you.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||No. Our defense makes every||
No. Our defense makes every offense look that good.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||You seriously think this team||
You seriously think this team is going 13-0? Please, tell me why you think this?
|4 years 28 weeks ago||I like our chances if the||
I like our chances if the defense stops them at least once. But that's a lot to ask of this bunch.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||We have to do better then 1-7||
We have to do better then 1-7 in conference for him to have a shot. Lowest win total in recent history to win heisman *9* with Tebow's 52 TD performance..
|4 years 28 weeks ago||I don't think we should be||
I don't think we should be ranked until we prove to the country that we can do better then 1-7 in the Big Ten. Indiana is the same team we beat last year so until proven otherwise I can see why some writers are skeptics still.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||I love how everyone just||
I love how everyone just shuns MSU like they suck. Then if they beat us the same people just make excuses for why we lost.
MSU is the most balanced team we may see this season. They have the best defense of any team we have played so far this year coupled with an offense that can run with power, finesse, speed, and agility. They're coming off a win against a top 11 team and have a coach who's dying wish would be to beat Michigan. The past is exactly that, the past. At present MSU has been a better team then us for a few seasons now and we are the ones that need this game more then them. I respect all the opponents Michigan plays because with a defense like ours, you have to.
We need to get the ball first and go down and score instead of vice versa. Each time we defer or go on defense first we start from behind and that's not great for momentum one bit. We have to pull out all the stops against these boys this year and if our defense can pull out an ND like performance and we can get some pressure on Cousins then I like our chances.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||After the last 3 years the||
After the last 3 years the only reason teams circle us and throw the playbook at us is to kick us while were down. The teams we have played are not hyper agressive teams they knew our defense sucked and they also knew that our offense was going to score almost at will so they had to go for it. There is a lot more that goes into going for it on 4th down other then a team being "hyper aggressive". Down and distance, opponents performance, time in the game, quality of the defense. A couple of times yesterday IU went for it on 4th and long. This as because of our offensive scoring output and the crazy success IU was having all day. Don't read to much into it.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||ESPN and the clear bias of||
ESPN and the clear bias of the SEC conference is something that makes me sick to my stomach. This year the SEC isn't anything to write home about. It's Bama and everyone else. They act like Cam Newton is better then Denard because he's in the SEC (which pisses me off beyond belief) Most of all though watching the Alabama and Florida game last night the broadcasters kept saying , "that's the type of play only an SEC athlete can make." Hell South Carolina could have had 3 losses and they probably still would have done this game.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Yeah.. About that..||
Yeah.. About that..
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Cool story bro. MSU makes||
Cool story bro. MSU makes Indiana look like a team of donkey's I don't know why everyone is so confident that we're going to beat Michigan State. They have a much better defense then people give them credit for and their offense can put up points with the best of them. I'm just praying that we slow the game down to keep the defense off the field as much as possible to give us a chance. With Denard we're always in the game, hopefully his knee is solid.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||He would win the heisman this||
He would win the heisman this year if we can get to at least 9 wins. No QB in the modern era with less then 9 has won it *(tebow as a soph won 8)*
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Seeing no improvement or||
Seeing no improvement or adjustments = blame on the coaching staff. Ben Chappell completed 46 passes on our defense and only a couple of them on more complex routes then the simple slant, the simple dig, and the simple sluggo (slant/go). Playing our corners off the ball 8-10 even 12 yards off the ball is getting us nowhere at all. This defense is broke but GERG refuses to fix it. You think Saban would just say oh well we can't do this so I'm just going to run the same bs soft zone and let Ben Chappell look like Peyton Manning against us? NO!! Hell neither would majority of coaches in this country. RR needs to get on the defense hard and let them know that todays performance was again, un-bearable.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||I'm with Nate here. I||
I'm with Nate here. I believe in our football team but if I were a betting man I'd be taking MSU with the spread next week. Whether or not we still win the game is up to the defense.

Me not so confident in a W next week... Please tell me something to change my gut feeling...
|4 years 28 weeks ago||If you have watched the tape||
If you have watched the tape from games 1 through 5 then you should know that while we don't have the depth and experience we have gotten worse instead of better and that is not a good trend going into the bulk of the Big Ten season. I abslutely love our defense next year and I think it can be successful with GERG here it's just that I'm concerned with not seeing individuals getting better. Not many players on that defense playing with much confidence and it's tough to watch. They're just going through the motions and that reflects poorly on the coaching staff no matter how you look at it. Let's hope we can buckle up a little against Michigan State. Losing that game for 3 straight years would be a travesty.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||I just want to see some||
I just want to see some improvement, and I have seen none. That is all..inexperience and lack of depth or not all of the units should almost be in mid-season form. No question where our offense is, but if this is what our defense is going to look like all year with no improvement then that falls on the coaching staff. Those DB's don't play with any confidence and the lack of pressure on the qb hasn't been anything to write home about. We made Ben Chappell look like Peyton Manning and be compared to Peyton during the broadcast...Our best defense tonight was Barwis' conditioning program. Our defense had their offense gassed and began to take advantage a couple of times. Game ball to Denard, JR Hemmingway, The entire OL, and Mike Martin. Honorable mention : V.Smith, R.Roundtree, Mouton/Kovacs
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Yes because Casteel and RR||
Yes because Casteel and RR already had a chemistry and that probably would have helped having an entity you know what is capable of instead of having the unknown.

You guys think Bama wins in a blowout or something close ? I got 27-21 Bama

They wouldn't be chanting anything if we could fucking stop them in any way shape or form.
