|18 weeks 6 days ago||I apologize right from the||
I apologize right from the start. However, you stated if Kelly leaves you really like our chances! DId I miss the ND M game? Was ND the better team on the field? From what I remember of the game, if not for 5 turnovers, with 4 of them in the red zone, we crushed ND. The team mistakes beat Michigan ND did not. Kelly can stay or he can go, ND was severely overrated all season, as we all saw in the NCG.
I don't post often and again I am sorry for this post as I am sure it will get ripped by someone. But looking at the schedule I can see a 12-0 record, however, as someone already stated in another thread, Michigan has been fortunate with injuries. As long as we continue the good luck 12-0 we will be. One or two injuries on the OL and we lose a couple close ones on the road (IE. PSU, Iowa and Northwestern.)

Amen, to be the best you have to play the best. I am not happy we were dessimated on the field. However, I have been an advocate to play a tougher schedule for years. I am tired of the MAC schools and low level Mid Major's. It is time we schedule games like this year in and year out. No offense to ND, but they lost their National prominence when Douche Bag Holtz retired. I still love the rivalry, but thye do not give us the strenghth of schedule that a Bama, LSU or anyother SEC team will give us. I am a winner and a competitor through and through, we all hate to lose, but I will take a lose like this, learn from it and move on. We now know where we are deficient and can make the necessary corrections to improve as a team and program.

Thank you for posting this for me!

I can not post or I just don't know how, either way I thought being we were talking about an Ohio recruit, this would tie in. Looks like Saline HS will be getting a very good coach and one with ties to Michigan, here is the link if someone would like to post for me. http://www.13abc.com/story/16361440/whit

True I forgot about Kelly, and Hoke, Bo and Ara Parsegean (I think that is how you spell his name.)

It is truly amazing the quality coaches The University of Toledo has pumped out in the last 20 years. Pinkle, Saban and now Beckman. Than you take a look at BG, with Gary Blackney and Meyer. The MAC is truly a great stepping stone to the major college football coaching careers.

I love watching them all squirm over there. Thanks that was worth the read.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Wasn't Dunn and Treadwell||
Correct me if I am wrong but isn't Dunn and Treadwell both coming with their parents? Seems to me that maybe we might be witnessing more than one commit coming our way this weekend.
As for the "GAME." I think we need to win the game first before we start thinking about rushing the field. I remember, I think it was 95 or 96 when Eddie George was the premier of the Conference and Ohio was suppose to walk all over us. However, Biakabatuka had his way with Ohio instead. My point let the boys play the game before we start counting the game as a Victory.

Why does Miss State have to suck so bad this year after the success from last year. I would be thrilled with a rematch from last year.

Not trying to cause conflict, however, when I hear RR is a "Great Coach," it makes me nauseated. Maybe it is my perception, but to make one great they have to be a winner whenever and where ever they are. RR was not a winner where ever he has coached. Yes RR will be very successful in the future, but his failures on his last stop limit the great status for me. I wish RR the best of luck where ever he goes.

Trolling really, because I have an opinion?

I have to think you are on to something. I know the coaches keep saying Denard is the man, but Devin is a much better fit to run the Pro-style set. I would like to see Denard and Devin lineed up next to one another in the backfield, have a predetermined snap and let either one makes some plays. I couldn't imagine what a DC would be thinking not knowing which QB is going to get the ball and the potential options out of the set.

It is all good. There is not one person on here at some point in their lives they did not make a mistake. However, it takes a much bigger person to stand up and say you "F'd" up. I commend you for that
|1 year 31 weeks ago||I don't have one in||
I don't have one in particular. I feel as though any and every lose to Sparty, ND and the Sucknutts are equally gut wrenching.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Yes, Persa should be back||
Yes, Persa should be back this weekend. With that said that will give him one week to get game prepared for us. Persa has shown incredible pose against us, and NW always plays us tough especially there.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Great read as usual. Was||
Great read as usual. Was hoping, while you are down checking out the Cougars and Panthers game this week, if you could do a little scouting for me. I have not had a chance to make to a football game back home this year, but have been keeping up on Maumee in the box scores. They seem to have a sound team, but have not heard of any big time recruits from there in a few years. Thanks will be awaiting your post next week about the game.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I agree with most if not all||
I agree with most if not all of the comments made thus far. However, my assessment of everything may be a little different to some. I like what the D has done, in terms of TO's, however, when Mattison has to make so many adjustments in the game just to stop a team like EMU, is disconserting. If we don't get more pressure from the front four, teams with a good soild accurate QB could give our secondary more problems. Just look at the stats from ND, If not for the TO's ND suffered, we would have been blown out in that game. Going back to the ND game, JT needs to be credited for doing an extremely acceptable job against one of the best WR's in the country. I don't know how many yards after catch Floydd had after catch, but watching the game and everone knowing where the ball was going, I really think JT stepped up and competed very well against him. Avery looks solid as well as Woolfolk and T.Gordon. The LB's look years ahead of where they did last year, so yet another great positive for this D. All and all, I am very pleased with this D.
As for the ST's I like what Wile has done, as a true frosh, punting. I like everyone else am very concerned about our coverage teams, we are giving up way to many yards after catch. We need to shore up quickly. FG kicking is definetely promising. I would like to see how well he does in a clutch pressure situation before I pass further judgement.

I have ND in a blowout 35 14 with no turnovers.
Then I have MSU in a close one 38 - 34, in a turnover filled afternoon for ND.
If ND can hold onto the ball they are one of the dealiest teams in the country. Sparty will be thier first victim.

I know that is what Herbie said when they came back and were talking about it, however, after rewatching it over and over again, I don't see where they can claim he didn't have posession. It clearly looked as though he had posession

The funny thing about your comment, last year there was a cheap shot on a Michigan player. I can't remember what game it was, and everyone on here weere expressing their feelings about how there is no place in football for that type of behavior. Now the table has turned, it is a Michigan player which did it, and you are supporting the behavior. HYPOCRITES
|1 year 36 weeks ago||It is funny how many are high||
It is funny how many are high on Hawthorn, but nonoe has mentioned the cheap shot/punch he had just as the ABC was going to a break. Also strikes me as ironic not a mention of it when they came back to aire. I loved his play, not questioning his ability to make this D better, but I will question his character as a student athelete at Michigan! There is no place for that type of behavior from anyone on this team. We are the Ohio, Sparty, or anyother team out there.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||I agree this game the front||
I agree this game the front four need to improve and get more pressure. I think as long as they get pressure and don't give Rees or Chryst have time to throw the ball we will be fine defensively. Offensively I would like to think a solid run game (from the RB corp,) That should open up the pass game and running attack for Denard. Now as for the ST's, I believe this game is going to come down to a miss field goal, a field goal made, or a major blunder on a KO or PR. as we have talked about above, we have to be solid to win these big games.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||I disagree with your||
I disagree with your statement, "No one will win a Championship because of their ST's." If you referring to the second paragraph you wrote, you explain how one can win a Championship with great ST's. If we have a FG kicker who is nearly perfect, a return game which can give you great field position time and time again, and a coverage team which can pin teams deep in their territory, how does that not translate to more victories and a potential Championship? I do agree with the fact that St's are not as nearly important as the O or D, but I strongly believe you have to be solid in all facets of the game.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||I think the most intriguing||
I think the most intriguing game from those listed above will be ND USF. Skip hotltz will have those boys ready to play. We will see if ND is looking ahead to the night game next week!
|1 year 38 weeks ago||You are right on Magnus, that||
You are right on Magnus, that is something taught at a very young level in the sport. Anyone who is taught properply at a young age has a huge advantage. I am hoping BWC can and will be the superstar he has the potential to be, but like you I don't see it happening. I just don't see him learning to keep the pad level down. However, the talk about Brink taking over as a leader on the DL, could end up being just the incentive BWC needs to work even harder to become that Superstar.

Excellent job, thanks for taking your time to do some nice scouting!
