Look, it wasn't our finest moment. There is a lot to learn from a game like today. Rather then sit here and complain about the dirty play, it's good to see a positive thought and comments about the direction of this program.
It's a great time to be a Michigan fan! Go Blue!

What a great thread. It has to start in the trenches on the defensive side. If we get pressure with our front 4, our back four will be just fine. Defense will improve. It has to be Big Will.

I took a recent tour of the Stadium at the end of June and the phrase was still there in the tunnel.

I have to admit I wasn't a big fan of RR. His first year really hurt him in my eyes when he didn't try to adapt the U of M prgram to something more becoming of the talent that was here when he took over. It seemed he was hell bent on implementing the spread. If anyone remembers, but Lloyds last game against Florida, we implemented a pro-style spread that was pretty damn affective. Seems to me had RR looked to be a little more flexible that would have done him worlds of good.
No need to belabor the past. Hoke has come in a blazing. I love the approach the coaching staff is taking to the talent, and how they are attacking the recruiting world for the talent that fits what they want to do. I am super excited for the future again.

This one has been shutdown by the feds.

Great update Tom as always. I was wondering if there was any news on the Dan O'Brian front. All has been quiet it seems for the past several weeks on his end? If Godin commits, does this affect O'Brian?

I think it goes without saying, that Cullen is not a Michigan man. I wish him the best.

More likely AJ will move to the O-Line. He is already pretty close to this in size as it is. This will give us the room for a Ron.

It seems to me that we are jumping the gun a little here. It is a little premature to start throwing in the towel or counting them out before they get started over an average or less than average spring. It’s only been a couple of weeks. Let’s give them some time.
Couple of main points that are different from 2008 to this year:
1. We have experience and talent returning at almost every position. In 2008, we graduated one of the best offensive tackles, QB, RB, and a defense that lost 2 exceptional LB's, and 2 DB's. The talent just wasn't there at some very key positions to run the spread most notably the QB position.
2. The support for the coaching staff and the belief in them is much higher than in 2008. The amount of hurdles that lay in front of Rich Rod were very significant and took away from this program
3. I believe the one major benefit in moving the offense to a pro-style has to deal with long sustained drives. With the spread we had to make first downs. The offense was so fast that if we didn’t, the defense would be back out on the field with very little rest (as was the case in 2008). With the pro-style, we can expect better clock management, with hopefully longer sustained drives.
