Going as part of the annual "visit a BigTen stadium" tour my friends and I do each year, and I am having a problem deciding who to root for. Also, anyone have tip on what to see/where to drink while in columbus

Had a month to prepare, and the defense is still lost, and regardless of DC, that is the head coach's fault. Also, some of the offensive calls were not good (a couple go for it all calls on third down instead of getting the first come to mind) and that also is on Rodriguez, b/c there have been calls like that all year. It seemed to me that some of those calls killed the rythym the offense had established. Oh well, couple days from now, we get "the decision" and then more crap to bitch/analyze.
Happy new year!!

one win won't put them over the hump. Yes, it will get them bowl eligible, but I don't see any improvement happening on the defense for two years. We don't have the personnel to stop anyone, either because they are to young, or spare parts. Right now, my hope for 8-4 is gone and a serious concern about being able to go 6-6 has replace it. Ill is better than anyone wants to admit, and our home record as of late isn't intimidating. Only Purdue seems winnable now, and before this game, I thought that them and PSU were gimmes for Michigan, so I am very afraid. If this all crumbles to the same record as last year, I see no way brandon keeps Rodriguez around, if for no other reason that the money pressure from alums and booster will be more than even he can stand. God willing, I am wrong.
weary, but still and always GO BLUE!!
|4 years 31 weeks ago||What about "pressure"||
My question is whether or not there is a way to account for "scoring pressure" of one team's offense on the opposing team's offense? Similar to the Colts in the NFL, if Michigan's offense is able to score prolifically, how does that change the tempo, play distribution, and ultimately the PAN of the opposing team as it tries to "keep up"? I assume a team being one dimensional would help w/defensive stats. Also, others have talked about the UConn game and how Michigan slowed it down to limit possessions, obviously after they had gone up big, and I want to know how that changes the dynamic of the opponents offense and how that may change Michigan's defensive numbers (favorably I presume). So, is it possible to do this? I think this may give us a better idea of how RR and GERG are "masking" the deficiencies in the defense.

See Tebow, Tim 2007....Team record 9-4 did not win SEC. He won Heisman. IF Denard keeps up the pace, and Michigan goes 9-3 w/ a win over OSU, I could see him pulling it out.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||I don't know about a wiscy collapse...||
but after being in attendance for the WI vs ASU game this past weekend, I think we have a better chance at winning than people think. Borland will be missed, ASU attacked his side of the field and had success off tackle and to the outside. Also, they are vulnerable to in routes. It seemed like everytime ASU needed a first down, they ran the slot inside the hashes and it was open for an easy pick-up. Clay was good, not great, and Wisconsin seemed adamant about getting 20 (White) into the game and trying to get him to the edge...don't know why b/c Clay was eating them up. Tolzien, and the

Not that this is serious, but related to another thread Jimmy John's HQ is in champaign and the frachise gained traction around that area b/c of the school (Also @ the Eastern Ill campus). Illinois fans hate Michigan enough, it would reach head splodin' levels if a Michigan QB was the spokesperson
|4 years 33 weeks ago||I am from Central Illinois||
and i don't get it. I went to the PSU vs IL game in Champaign last year (tix were cheap...imagine that!!). About 60% of the student section from what I could see were wearing the Illini orange shirt that said "Ann Arbor is a whore" on them. I couldn't understand it since they were playing(read: getting pounded by) PSU. Also, I am pretty sure I heard them chanting the Muck Fichigan after the game was over. They seem to take the anger of getting beat down in all games out towards Michigan. I am pretty sure there is a term for this (oedipus complex??).

I totally forgot about Rogers and JT Floyd! I can't believe w/all the questions about our secondary, I actually forgot about them. They punched their clock and did their work, now they can go home. Good work secondary, good work defense/offense, a great TEAM effort. Enjoy the bus ride home, get some sleep, and start back in on Monday. Go Blue!!!!
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Can't get on board||
that play went nowhere. Great pic, but the play leaves a bad taste in my mouth. If he had busted this for a TD or even the first down maybe.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||keep in mind||
that it is a 3 man front, so any sort of push is meant to bring a double team not a sack/TFL. Our backers may not be playing great, but Mouton I thought was outstanding (except for the whole wrap up Allen for a loss instead he gets a first play). Also, Ezeh appeared to be not as lost. I didn't see much out of Herron who I think was in, and Roh made at least two TFLs that I can remember. Also, the dline did get pressure, maybe not a sack, but pressure, which in a 3 man front is all we can expect. I felt they actually did a better job this game, against a more diverse offense. What killed us this game is the same as what killed us in the 2nd half of the UConn game, which I think were counters and traps w/pulling guards up the middle. How we defeat that in a 3 man front I don't know.

hilarious. I can see the spittle flecks flying...
|4 years 33 weeks ago||If you told me that we went 6||
If you told me that we went 6 posessions last year w/o turning the ball over, I would have been overjoyed!! As others have said, not the best, but a win is a win is a win!

He is more like astrglide, slick and it lasts longer.....
|4 years 33 weeks ago||At least at a testiculare||
At least at a testiculare exam, you can pretend that it tickles, but this defense does not make me laugh with glee
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Whoa, that was close!!!||
I'll take it, but I would really like to see someone other than Denard run the ball effectively. I don't want to say that Denard can't take it, BUT shaw/smith and others have to step up so that he makes it to the end of the year. I see the advantage of the QB draw Michigan runs, but it will catch up to Denard, maybe around MSU, or IA.

Hemingway's ability to get injured is something to behold......or despise.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||The big question is.....||
Will Denard have another game statistically like this against ND? I don't believe so, b/c basically ND has only this game film to get an idea of what he does, so they will expend massive amounts of energy trying to contain Denard, and w/this offense that means the DE will be occupied, and our OL has already shown an ability to get to the second level, meaning the middle should be ripe for Shaw/Smith to exploit, correct? At the very least, the fact that Denard has FIRMLY established that he can kill you with his legs, means the defense cannot just do a scrape exchange as they did w/Tate last year, b/c Denard will just run right by him. It seems to me that the "adjustments" teams made to the spread Michigan ran last year is void because someone a LOT faster is running the show. All this to say that Denard may not have another statistical performance like he did on Saturday, but our RBs and WRs may not ever have that "low" (relatively speaking) of an output for the rest of the year either, simply because of what Denard showed was possible.
