in the first 10 games. I think he looks bad sometimes, because his position requires him to both cover and provide run support, where a true corner is usually tasked with man coverage (which is still hard). I've seen plenty of times when he is in perfect position and the pass has no chance.

Junior and senior Brady were better than freshman and sophomore Henson, but junior Henson was better than Brady. And I think a senior Henson (especially if Terrell had stuck around) would have been invited to New York.

Another amazing highlight video.
I was both impressed with how far and accurate he could throw it, but also how quickly he gets the ball out. He has to have one of the shortest wind ups I've seen and puts a ton of zip on the ball. Yeah, I still think he could have been something special. I'm also glad to have watched him with Terrell and walker. Those two are also busts I am suprised by.

the Rutgers coach is the WOW factor.

The best High School QB tried to split time with a less known Junior QB, who had been around for a while. Everyone clamored for this amazing young prospect, yet the older QB continued to out perform and beat out the young QB.
In 2000, the High School stand out played one of the best single seasons (despite missing the beginning with a foot (toe?) injury).
Mathlete (I believe) did a whole statistical analysis of true freshman QBs and compared to the entire college football QBs. I think they at best came out average.
My point being, no matter how good a High School prospect is, the change from HS to college is a big one. Game moves faster, and offenses and defenses are both much more advanced. It could happen, but the stats tell us that Michigan's best chance to be great next year is with a veteran QB.
|1 week 6 days ago||Except||
I see NFL Qbs complete passes to NFL WRs over NFL CBs every week in the NFL. Allowing a few completions a game doesn't mean the CB can't play at the NFL level. Sometimes passes are made because a throw and move are perfect. It took a lot of targets to get Burbridge those catches and yards. Targets don't include the times where Cook had to look off because it just wasn't there.
|1 week 6 days ago||I agree and think whole defense was exposed||
I don't get why they haven't shut out every opponent this year. Seriously, if they wanted to be great, they'd just stop all offenses from scoring.
I also want to point out how they've allowed positive yardage in EVERY game. When people are talking about how good this defense is, they always seem to "forget" to mention all the times they gave up a yard or two on a run or pass play.
/s (shouldn't be necessary, but you never know)
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Watson getting time is great news!||
I think I remember reading that he is the heir apparent to Peppers in that position, which is critical in this defense, so him getting reps over the next year and a half is good news. Indiana and Penn State's passing games might make it hard to get him reps though.

Unfortunately there are a lot of tough stories like this since Michigan gets some of the toughest patients. Makes me happy every day when I know my own kids are healthy. Makes any of my other problems easy to put in perspective.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||That's what she said||

it goes all the way down to 7 or 8. That'd be fun.

it's correct. Go blue!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Looks like about 50% chance||
we go into OSU with a 9-2 record.
I calculated the odds by figuring there are only two outcomes, either we have that record or we don't, so 50/50 chance.
Me good at math and English.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||Reasons to root for big win/ shut out||
Yes all wins are good, but Michigan is still in it for the BIG East. If Michigan Dominates the next 4 opponents like they did Oregon St through Northwestern and then Beat OSU, and OSU beats MSU, there is a small possibility that Michigan could make the Championship game.
It's a lot of ifs, but the sound beatings will only help Michigan's case.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Massey looks more right to me||
Michigan unfortunatelly lost to both State and Utah, so being just behind them right now makes sense. USC should not be that high, and I don't like Alabama at 1 spot.
I'm hoping for a couple more goose eggs for upcoming Michigan opponents though, and am really hoping to see some down field passes completed. At Minimum I'm hoping for a 3 way tie for the BIG East with 5 dominating performances making the decision hard to see where to put Michigan. BIG Championship is still not out of the picture which is crazy (awesome).
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Rescue Bots Heat Wave||
My son is Kade from rescue bots (fireman) and I made him a heatwave firetruck to wear. I am the transformed version of heatwave. My other sons a panda and my wife is a zookeeper. We were on top of things for once ths year.

Can I ask "Hot enough for yah?"
|5 weeks 16 hours ago||Depends||
which team are we talking about?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks||
I thought it happened at Michigan's Union, based on the responses.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I'd love to see MSU Safeties||
take a bunch of rides on Smith, Houma, and Kerridge 20 yards down the field.
It will be interesting to see how the game goes if the safeties have to take on those guys head on, and how often.
None of them are close to Ron Dayne size and speed, but I know safeties hated having to take him head on, and getting trucked does mess with the psyche.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Cliff note version?||
I don't know the original story or what other mistakes were made. Can someone give a quick rundown of what occurred?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||No pants?||
|6 weeks 5 days ago||What school?||
My wife was in that play
|6 weeks 5 days ago||ok Tom Sawyer||
I'll trade, but not until you let me paint your fence again.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah||
I'm not sure if you've worked with Unions, but it can be very difficult to get rid of union employees. This would actually help players in the SEC who want to continue to play but are encouraged to leave. Gross misconduct wouldn't be tolerated, but that isn't anyway.
I think a 25 player max signing class with 100 max roster would also solve the first issue, and curb oversigning better thanthe union, but just saying. Even without a union, I've seen some pretty bad employees last for a long time. If it was considered paid, then the university would be responsible for paying unemployment to the student if he was "fired". It get's pretty messy.

The way I see it, the coaching staff knows that they don't have to open the play book, so they continue to work on base plays and beating teams straight up. I'm sure as the season progresses, we will see more variations and counters to the base plays as necessary.
The passing game is still missing out of the base plays. Guys are getting open, but we've seen very little in taking advantage of this. This is still the major fear with this offense, that they can't take advantage of those plays. I understand that there has been some wind, but the weather doesn't get easier to play in from here.
The fact that the offense has been so effective without big plays shows a very consistant reliable offense, which is a good thing. Making big plays against undisciplined defenses is not really a long term game plan.
|7 weeks 15 hours ago||I stopped following||
when I realized that I forget about most of them less than a month after signing. This came to my realization when I would read Brian's round up of each new guy during the summer, and I'd be all "oh yeah I remember that guy from signing day" only to forget about them for a year or two when they are actually ready to see the field.
Big names like Peppers and Hand still draw me in, but only because I think I will see them in the fall.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||So 31 pts in 5 games||
With one of those a garbage time touchdown to UNLV. And the one other touchdown not included being the pick 6.
Northwestern will be a heck of a defensive game as well.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||well||
They didn't give up the edge at least.
