why does this need its own thread?
|4 years 6 weeks ago||summary||
Some things that I noticed watching the game.
The O-Line was definatly not ready for the blitz. Protections broke down all over the place.
Check down opportunities were missed that would have given us open throws or 1on1 chances.
Denard is not a good touch thrower, period. Whoever is responsible for coaching him individually is doing a very poor job. In all honesty, last years staff had him throwing a better ball than this years staff. I dont know if anyone else has noticed that he is actually a worse passer this year, but his mechanics and footwork are awful.
Play calling on offense was fine, kept us in the game, i really think given the pass rush that they had, we could have had a couple of pick 6's against us. The 4th and 1 play that we needed to get should have been a dive play right up the gut, but hindsight is 20/20.
Defense played well enough to win. again, they bent but didnt break.
With all the turnovers, personal fouls, sloppy MSU play, we could have won this game. But IF they had come ready to play, we would have easily lost by alot more.
Now what do we do. This is the point in the last 3 seasons that we totally tanked. Will our players still have the intensity to come out against purdue and play hard

indy, I totally agree. The taunting incident has no purpose even being a thread on this board. I am more concerned about our play then if the other team "taunted" me or "played dirty". Why is it that when we lose, that this kinda crap comes up? Grow up. Let MSU deal with these problems.
Im not one for whining, and im SURE, Michigan players like Molk and Lewan arent either

Spread doesnt fit at Michigan, at least not yet. No one will ask that anyway when we win 4 titles in the next 10 years.
