Yea we did test in west hall this year. Just for canoeing practice in general with aluminum canoes, and spoke with professors about rowing technique. Didn't wanna take the actual concrete canoe because by the end of race day it gets pretty beat up.

You talk about our freshman QB as if it's a bad thing. He HAS to be better than Threet or Sheridan. It's an improvement. Even if he can't throw (hopefully he can at least throw better than Sheridan or Threet did last year), he can run, and that adds a whole new dimension to this offense that we didn't have last year and that Rodriguez thrives on. Plus this is the only new face on the offense - every other offensive starter from last year returns with a world of experience to draw from.
And about our defense - I believe the defense will be a lot better this year than last because of better coaching. A quote from Scott Shafer: "I take full responsibility for the demise of where Michigan's program is at this time." If this quote is even half true, I believe our defense will improve dramatically next fall. We lost some players, but no one that great really. Morgan Trent will be missed, but Cissoko and Warren have excellent potential if they get good coaching.
Plus the whole offensive line is that much better. I think given Rich Rodriguez's track record in second-season turnarounds and the new recruits that "fit" into Rodriguez's system makes us a much better team than last year.
IMO - Western/Eastern Michigan and Delaware State and Indiana are guaranteed wins. Notre Dame plays in our favor, because we almost beat them playing absolutely horribly last year. Same with Purdue, Wisconsin, and Illinois. And win 50% of the rest of our schedule (OSU, Iowa, Penn State, Michigan State) to finish like 8-4. Eh?

was a bumb his second year. He managed to dominate Tim Tebow and really keep that offense in check in my opinion. And he held the Buckeyes to 14 points in a game where the defense was on the field a majority of the time. If you're referring to the App State game, the defense did suck, but the offense sucked too that game. App State was a better team than anyone gave 'em credit for. And Oregon was ranked #2 in the nation at one point, so it's not Ron English's fault the defense couldn't stop the Ducks. Otherwise, his defense was great.
What does scare me is that Louisville let up 63 points against Rutgers. I can't defend Ron English for that.
