from what i read the players liked them and requested it. if the kids on the team want it it's fine by me.

michigan wins 42-10. denard rushes for 172 yards and 2 scores. goes 12 of 22 passing for 194 yards and 2 td passes. fitz has two rushing scores. devin gets very late mop up duty with less than 5 minutes in the game.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||agree with everything except||
agree with everything except illinois. i realize the asu win looks pretty good right now but winning a 3 point squeaker over a middling to bad mac squad at home should not get anyone moved up 6 notches.

it's not up to Al Borges when Devin Gardner gets in the game.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||i think craig james might be||
i think craig james might be a secret michigan fan. i remember last year the brief time that michigan was ranked he always had michigan higher in his poll than other voters.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||didn't expect it to be that||
didn't expect it to be that high. i think michigan will win 31-21 but will give up a lot of yards on the day. i wouldn't be surprised to see hilmman approach or go over 200 yards on the ground. defense will hold well it needs to and the offense will be more consistent and pull away midway through the 4th quarter.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||this seems like a completely||
this seems like a completely reasonable thread to me. i mean in my mind one of the worst defenses in the entire nation last year should definitely be turned around into a complete powerhouse by game 3 next year. /s
wake up the defense is a work in progress, it is still not good. it has improved in terms of in game adjustments, turnovers and tackling in my eyes. the defense will struggle though game in and game out and will probably eventually cost us a game or two sometime this season. if your expectations were for something different than that, then you just weren't in tune with the reality of the situation.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||notre dame finally solves the||
notre dame finally solves the turnovers and limits them to one pick by rees. state keeps it close through the 3rd but nd pulls away with a couple of big plays in the 4th quarter. notre dame 38-msu 27.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||38-10 michigan.||
|5 years 12 weeks ago||not gonna root for either but||
not gonna root for either but i'd prefer notre dame to win. i've had my fill of msu the last 3 years. i want msu to lose to osu as well. yeah it would be great if they were undefeated when we beat them but personally i'd rather see them be at 3-2 going into that game. msu is always a weak mental team,if they come into the game 3-2 and michigan notches a couple quick scores they'll fold like a cheap afghan.

what i would give for this to be real.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||probably had more to do with||
probably had more to do with the fact that they only ran 39 offensive plays last week. so a lot of the installed playbook wasn't even utilized due to the defensive td's that limited possessions.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||the closer the game gets the||
the closer the game gets the more i think michigan takes. in the 3rd consecutive year michigan wins by scoring a td in the final minute of the game. michigan 31 notre dame 28.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||get up early have breakfast||
get up early have breakfast with the fiancee. get dropped off at my best friends place. take his son out back and have him run routes and catch balls for a couple hours. he'll then be picked up by his mother and thats when the drinking starts. mostly slow roll it with wine through the early games and then really get it roaring when the game starts. then hopefully celebrate a victory with some friends and a bonfire into the early morning hours sunday.

one of my favorite things ever.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||unreal that they don't even||
unreal that they don't even mention the lack of offensive possesions in the game.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||the amount of fail produced||
the amount of fail produced by him over the last 3 seasons is epic in it's proportions.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||i don't care one way or the||
i don't care one way or the other what brian kelly does but he will lose players and possibly his team witht his kind of actions. you could see it in the players face as he's screaming at them. when someone is yelling at you like that you're not taking in what they're saying you're just thinking when is this asshole going to get out of my face. now i don't know if kelly maybe has a bad cop/good cop thing going where he just blows up and then when he's done with his tirade one of his assistants goes and talks to the kid calmly and actually tries to correct them on what they did wrong. either way it's entertaining to watch and i hope there's a few epics on the sidelines next weekend.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||definitely a work in||
definitely a work in progress. for the people who don't think they looked any better than last year, what exactly were you expecting? anyone who thought this defense was gonna get it all turned around in one offseason needs to get their mind right. overlall i'd say the d was slightly improved from last year but it's only one shortened game. i think the d will actually improve as the season goes on instead of regress. i do have a great amount of fear that michael floyd is gonna absolutely go off next weekend, but hopefully they can dial up the pressure and try to prevent too many big plays.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||really great diary. it got a||
really great diary. it got a little dusty in here when reading the section about BO. the first year that i started attending michigan games in person was 1989 i was 8 years old and bo's final season is seared into my memory. i share your obsession with Charles Woodson as well. I remember playing high school football that fall of 97. i remember wanting to be like him even though i played mlb on d and rt on o. i remember a particular saturday night game and my best friend picking off a pass and returning it 82 yards and when we met in the endzone the first words out of our mouths at almost the same time was "just like woodson". a lot of nostaligia placed in this diary and it really is a great lead in to tomorrow and the beginning of yet another fall of Michigan Football.

michigan wins 34-17. lots of between the tackles running and short dink and dunk passing with a few strikes downfield. denard carries the ball less than ten times. after the game everyone complains about the offense until the notre dame game when the full gameplan is revealed.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||agree completely with this. i||
agree completely with this. i think koger comes up with between 40-50 catches.

nice to see a defensive preview that isn't all doom and gloom. lets hope all of these predictions hold up.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||who in this thread is||
who in this thread is surprised? it's more the fact that he didn't deserve the treatment that he received. even if poor treatment isn't out of the norm it doesn't mean it's an ill conceived idea to speak about.

play a video game or something mindless that consumes time. i felt the same way to start the week so i started playing fallout: new vegas again and it's eating up lots of time. also i know you mentioned youtube videos but you really can't go wrong with hitting up wolverinehistorians page on youtube. there's hours upon hours of entertainment there.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||there's a legit chance they||
there's a legit chance they cover the spread. there's a lot of unanswered questions going in so 14.5 might be a bit big. i expect michigan to cover and win the game 34-17. picking western straight up though is crazy. they've got a good qb but their offensive line play hasn't been good and they haven't had much of a rushing attack at all. their defense hasn't been anything spectacular either. obviously they're a different team then the 09 version that opened against michigan but i remember hearing a lot of talk then that michigan was going to lose and western got rolled. i expect a tight game up until the half and michigan pulls away.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||pretty good effort. i love||
pretty good effort. i love just the sheer volume of hype videos the michigan fan base puts out eery year. these things really help in the long offseason.
