things go poorly

As we all know, the offensive line is the foundation that any football team is built upon. We need not spend any time debating this fact, it is indeed self-evident.
Our O-Line looked much improved, and the glaring misfires look like they were because of missed assignments, not because our linemen were overmatched, poorly coached, or simply not as talented as they should be to be playing in Ann Arbor. This leads me to the conclusion that our O-line will improve as the year goes on, which is key.

Totally agree. If we can string together a few of the top fives, we'll be back where we beong.

I thought that the doc was well done, Jalen's fingerprints were all over it. He was always the most savvy and socially aware member of the Fab Five, and it showed.
Sure, I wish that Chris Webber would have been part of the project, too. I also wish that we would have won both of the NCAA finals that they played in, that they would have played together for four years and brought the program four championships, and I wish that the Beatles had never broken up, and I wish that we could all get along.
Chris Webber feels justified. That's the issue. He feels that he was taken advantage of, and then betrayed when the Ed Martin connection came out. He knows that the University made millions off of his skills, personality, and efforts, and he resents it.
As far as I'm concerned, Chris Webber should be welcomed back to Ann Arbor, no apology required. He was 19, for God's sake. If I had to apologize for all the stupid crap I did when I was 19, I'd be busy. We all would.

What's up with the Muppets?
WHAT'S UP WITH THE MUPPETS?!!
Run a lap.

What a great read, and great perspecive.
The biggest difference between a Bo training camp and a Rod training camp is today's meda having a negative view of spoiled, pampered, lazy players leaving. Back in '69, most people thought that allowing players water breaks during practice was coddling them. Now, players tweet about their games during the freaking game.
I've been a Michigan fan long enough to know better than to get my hopes too damn high. The fact remains, Coach Rod has to have a great season to save his job in Ann Arbor. I, for one, hope that he succeeds, and stays here for a long time.

Barkeep, set me up with another shot of Kool Aid!
I don't see any argument trying to prop up our "defense" as defensible, but for the first time, our offense may very well be able to outshine our defense's weaknesses.
I look forward to a seven or eight win season, and I hope to be able to watch a bowl game Christmas Eveish.
At least there's some room on the bandwagon now...

Inherently, optimism is unrealistic. But, dammit, it's worth a try. This is why I read this damn blog every day.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Those who stay||
How soon we forget. Is it possible that this has happened before?
"Schembechler began his tenure as head coach at Michigan with a rallying cry to his players: "Those who stay will be champions!" This slogan foreshadowed the challenges Michigan football players would endure from the dramatic culture change initiated by Schembechler, who emphasized toughness and introduced practices and conditioning far more rigorous than any the players had been exposed to before. His first training camp in 1969 saw around 140 players enter but a mere 75 emerging from the grueling camp and choosing to embrace Schembechler's system."
Of course, the Free Press reporters didn't go after Bo, did they? Damn right they did. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I'm looking forward to hearing what 96.1 brings to the table, we needed another sports station in G.R. Huge makes my ears hurt, and how Bakita has kept his job for this long is a freaking mystery. Hoping Terp and Sean don't suck, they don't so far.
