Jesus's daughter according to the Da Vinci Code.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Denard had injury and turnover problems the latter half||
And the opposing defenses played up and forced him to pass, whereupon the receivers started dropping more balls.
Still had good production nonetheless.
I am not worried, and expect big things from the O. Injuries healed, more practice and generally a year older spells big yards.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||I keep waiting for the team to put it all together.||
I hope we do so, or at least do better, in the bowl game. go blue

|4 years 41 weeks ago||Mich 42 - Iowa 21||
|4 years 41 weeks ago||Boy do I miss||
|4 years 41 weeks ago||The stands||
are for standing.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||They are all big||
and RR is here to stay.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||If M wins games, Denard wins Heisman||
After last weekend, it is clear our offense will have to win games for us.
If the offense is winning games, Denard is racking up yards.
So if we go at least 8-4 (and preferably better), Denard should have crazy stats and will again be the front runner.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||We all know||
we can't win when we turn the ball over like we did Saturday.
At least the D made the stop after the first INT.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Back Seat Brawl||
you know, little brother getting punished by big brother on the annual long drive to the family reunion.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Turnover ratio||
is going to be the factor. Hold on to the god damn ball.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||At the same time, no one anticipated the level of explosion and||
Heisman hype we've been seeing. Everyone was still saying "it appears Denard is starting" but RR didn't announce the starting QB, and we were all waiting to see that first snap on gameday. What a special year we're being treated to.

love that game.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Rob'd||
eh, Joey beat me to it.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Vince Young||
looks like he had two 200/200 games in his career. This past week the quote was that Denard was the only player to have two in a career. Are they drawing the distinction as OVER 200 yards or something?
|4 years 42 weeks ago||sorry||
I had that originally saying Demens and Herron to step up and give Ezeh and Roh more breaks, and deleted the wrong names (I want Roh out there).
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Doesn't just putting Roh on the line||
essentially turn us into a 4-2-5? It seems the personal recommendations are all based on Ezeh. Need Herron to step up to give Ezeh breaks, and leave Roh on the attack.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Why compare||
To me, its the biggest Mich. vs. Mich St. game that we've had in quite a while. 2 losing seasons, 2 MSU losses, 5-0 vs. 5-0, bowl eligibility, Denard, Heisman, the team repeating "The Team" to the media.
p.s. and unfortunately D's heart attack and impending return.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||ESPN Sportscenter||
flashed a stat tonight that Sparty is 7-1-1 or something like that in the series when both teams were undefeated.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Not really||
it was just bend, bend, bend, bend, bend, TD. It just kept bending, and only had a few smaller breaks.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||it will be attained||
|4 years 42 weeks ago||It's||
|4 years 42 weeks ago||One or two more stops a game will get us there.||
We're moving in the right direction.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||We only need to keep opp. to about 35% scoring to be average||
From 2008 bleacher:
Out of that, I calculated the percentage of drives a team scored on using offensive touchdowns and field goals made. The top ten are as follows:
1. Florida - 57.43%
2. Navy - 56.94%
3. Kansas - 52.63
4. Texas Tech - 52.20%
5. Missouri - 52.00%
6. Boise State - 51.76%
7. Oklahoma - 51.67%
8. LSU - 51.40%
9. Hawaii - 50.57%
10. West Virginia - 48.80%
The bottom ten are as follows:
119. FIU - 17.54%
118. Army - 20.37%
117. Notre Dame - 20.65%
116. Duke - 20.78%
115. Baylor - 20.96%
114. Syracuse - 22.82%
113. Temple - 23.53%
112. Iowa - 23.97%
111. Iowa State - 24.83%
110. Louisiana Tech - 25.44%
|4 years 42 weeks ago||They all had to tend the fields||
and flip burgers.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||I don't hate Sparty||
I just feel bad for them.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||I heard that too.||
|4 years 43 weeks ago||I think GERG is doing well||
with the D and personell we have. They are getting better, and will continue to do so. Next two games are huge - after that you can put 7-0 in your signature.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||Interesting that they had Martin||
play a little DE, where he was productive.
