How about Tom Brady? 1:13 left and led an 80 yard drive to thump the Saints! Hey, there is one positive thing with Michigan Football.... kinda......... ok it does not help the sheer numbness that has been pumped threw my veins since last night..
Oh well... Go Brady!

The moment hoke said he was bringing borges with him I knew it would not end well. 2 years and out just about at all of his stoos in his career is not a good thing. Patterns are patterns for a reason. I question all the coaching staffs ability; from hoke to wellman to fred jackson.. And especially dave brandons. That little schmuck is constantly in the picture of every game. Bottom line is this.. This team is not good. And it starts with the coaching staff. We have won too many games by the skin of our teeth that we should have crushed and thrown away games we could have won. It is just one loss but the shortcomings of this staff are apparent. I want Magee back. End of story

i spaced it out but it didnt take coming from the phone. My apologies
|50 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe a misconception.||
To be a good down hill running offense, it takes more than just highly ranked recruits on the o line. You have to have a sound s&c program, o line coaching has to be stout , the talent for the o line and rb has to be there, time in the system, scheme has to be good, and each player has to give 200% each play.
That is what is being overlooked folks. If all of those elements are not there than you are not going to be successful. You could have the highest rated recruits across the board, but if you do not prepare them right in s&c and techniques, you are not going to be happy with the results.
Then you have guys like Miller for example. While the kid does his best I assume, sometimes the result individually is not very good. Is he soaking up all that he is taught or just forgetting it on gameday? Who knows? Maybe he is a practice god and horrible during live football, he would not have been the only one that has happened to. Is there anyone better on the team? Possibly, but why would he be out there then.
At the end of the day, all the excuses are a bit tiring. Something is missing to be successful running the damn ball. No holes opening, Toussaint doing too much dancing because of the holes not being there, him not seeing the holes all together, and borges constantly trying to sweep him to the edge when that is not his strongsuit, imo...
No need to put the finger on one particular variable and say "This is why we can not run".
Because truthfully, we fall short in many aspects of making manball a reality, which is the reality
my 2 cents
|50 weeks 6 days ago||A team within a team?||
What does being on a team have to do with getting beat every snap because you are slow to react or not getting the push? Taylor rarely gets beat. Schofield is above average. What is Miller's excuse? You can be in a system for 20 years, but if you are slow, you are slow. If you constantly lose your battle individually to Akron, thats not on the team, that is on you. Who knows what goes on behind the seens. I would love to say they are all soaking in what they are taught by funk and wellman, but where is the proof? You can lead a horse to water but you can not make him drink

In all seriousness, I am hoping to see improvement in the run game with an emphasis on the younger guys. With a drop in competition level I am hoping the O Line can gel better in this stretch and really bog down on them opening gaping hiddens. Honestly, all aspects of the game should have time to gel. Also, I would like to see the linebackers shoot the gap with a lot more sucess.
And you know.... Noooooooorfleet taking it to the house!
