Would you consider Denard the best of that bunch if they were all switched to running back? I can't imagine Vince Young being as good as Denard out of the backfield.

We've been friends since 3rd grade. I'm stuck with him. And his wife.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||To give an example||
He's one of those guys who believes Babe Ruth's stats shouldn't be considered as impressive because he played before black men were allowed in the league.
And to clarify, he's not saying Denard's career wasn't impressive. He's talking about the comparison to Michigan running backs at the top of the rushing record list like Hart, Wheatley, etc.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||I think he's talking about||
I think he's talking about the block on Te'o 10 yards downfield on Denard's 87 yard TD run. There wasn't much pulling there, he just headed downfield and did to Te'o exactly what you're supposed to do to a linebacker: rode him 8 yards before putting him on his back.

Wire him every week, please.

"Craig Ross, author of The Obscene Diaries of a Michigan Fan, told me that Carr attempted to "minimize the vagaries of talent and injuries"."
Isn't that exactly why RR started using the spread in the first place? To minimize the vagaries... well, deficiencies of talent he had when he started coaching?

Meatchicken is one of many terrible alterations of Meeechigan. I've heard it before.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||You probably all know this,||
You probably all know this, but Tom Brady scored what was up to that point the lowest 40 time for a QB in the history of the NFL combine.
It was beaten later that same day by Chris Redman of Louisville, and like twice again since.
His standing vertical was something historically bad, too.

I've watched that clip 15 times and I still can't figure out how he did that.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||I remember that. I think it||
I remember that. I think it was just "hoss", though. I could be wrong.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Paraphrasing from the introduction||
before the 1991 FSU game:
"When you venture into the biggest house in college football you better come prepared lest ye parish at the hands of the burly resident."
His voice is college football to me.
Oh, and "He's got a convoy!"
|1 year 46 weeks ago||I can't find the meltdown||
I can't find the meltdown over there. But I did find some awesome threads like "Post a good 90's band", "I think I got bit by a black widow spider" and "Man sticks eel up his butt."
|2 years 7 weeks ago||The most impressive thing to||
The most impressive thing to me was how low Clowney was on impact. If he had been as high as you'd imagine a 6'6" guy would be when tackling a runner almost a foot shorter, he just would have swallowed him and not had nearly the jarring effect that caused Vincent to lose the ball.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||Denard never played corner.||
Denard never played corner. Ever.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Sometimes I wish Denard would||
Sometimes I wish Denard would have left when RR did. Selfishly, I wish I was able to see him in an offense that suited him for his entire college career.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Distrupting the interior||
Distrupting the interior offensive line is how you beat any offense.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||The last time Rich had a QB||
The last time Rich had a QB he recruited who played for 4 years, he broke NCAA records and became arguably the best spread QB in college football history and the only QB to ever start and win 4 bowl games.
I think he'll have another. The guy can find/coach spread QBs.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||It looks like somebody put an||
It looks like somebody put an invisible fence collar on Will Hagerup in that Hoke double fist pump gif.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||This is very, very||
This is very, very interesting. But does the triangle offense use a true point guard?
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Solid is an understatement.||
In my opinion he's the best passing QB in the history of Michigan football.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||I think you're misremembering||
I think you're misremembering the 2009 Iowa game.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Excuse my ignorance, but||
Excuse my ignorance, but didn't Armanti Edwards go 1500/1500 rushing/passing in 2007?
|2 years 19 weeks ago||The run that Denard blocked on||
was by Vincent Jackson, no?
|2 years 21 weeks ago||An 11 play drive that takes 6||
An 11 play drive that takes 6 minutes off the clock is much easier on the opposing defense than an 11 play drive that takes 3 minutes off the clock.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||I miss the Hell out of||
I miss the Hell out of Brandon Minor.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||You say we just look at the||
You say we just look at the score, but you apparently do, too. If you watched those two games, you could see with your own eyes Arizona dominated both of them. They aren't going to win the Pac-12, but they are indeed a good team. Surprisingly good considering they were 4-8 last year and, like you said, this is a first year Rich Rodriguez team.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||I don't know what Rich Rod||
I don't know what Rich Rod did, but the eye test is telling me this Arizona team would have beaten 2008 Michigan by 30. There's no way they have more talent coming off of a 4-8 season than we did, right?
No really... wtf?
|2 years 25 weeks ago||But Thomas Rawls isn't what||
But Thomas Rawls isn't what worries me. It's that the coaches seem to think he's the kind of guy they need for the future and have high hopes for him. I'm more worried that our coaches see talent where there is none.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Didn't Georgia Southern put||
Didn't Georgia Southern put up like 300 rushing yards on Alabama last year?
And nobody arguing for Borges to run Denard more is in the group who complained about Denard getting hurt and missing snaps in the past. It's a risk you take.
