I'm off to New Zealand for a NOLS semester course and I will be missing this game, along with every other game until the B1G championship game:( Predictions for the rest of the season: loss to Purdue/Northwestern, otherwise undefeated until then, D-Line comes together in a biiig way. Fitz has a more impressive season than Denard, Gallon is #1 reciever with Dileo contributing significantly as well. We whoop Notre Dame. Good luck to all and GO BLUE

As I have under 100 points, I cannot create my own thread. I should have worked harder to get up to 100 before this point, but it's too late now. Anyways, I'm leaving to go on a NOLS course in New Zealand for a semester on friday. Sadly, it ends three days after the OSU game. Thus, I'm going to miss the entire season, with no hope of finding out how Michigan is doing until Nov. 27th. This is heart breaking, but I wanted to ask the community if you had any ideas on the best way to look up their record and such. One idea I had is to have a friend send me the highlights of each game in an embeded video. That way I could watch each game unfold, and still get a glimmer of the season's suspense. Any other ideas? Sorry for the highjack

During a lot of the game, it just seemed like they were just beating us a little bit in every matchup every play. It wasn't that we were that vastly overplayed, it was the consistancy of it. Every yard was a struggle. Hoke clearly has taught the team how to fight though. Great post

I'm glad to see that this is back for another year. Good work

didn't call nearly enough designed runs for Denard in the first half. Only that one on third and one, which got the first. We were just overmatched though, we need another year or two for our recruiting to catch up to theirs.

Somewhere just shy of twenty I'd say, giving us second place overall.

While your argument did made me think slightly better of his chances, I still believe that he is by no means a favorite to win. He has yet to put together a consistant year throwing and running against good defenses, and you ignore the fact that each of the other candidates will have had another year to polish their game. He also faces a punishing slate of defenses, Eg Alabama, Notre Dame, MSU, OSU. He lost Molk from the offensive line as well. Michigan now also has a feature back in Fitz, which could cut into his production significantly. He has a shot at it, and I obviously hope he makes it, but I can't justify calling him the favorite to win.

but in the end, only one of those two events is a once in a lifetime experience. You can still have a superb time watching the game on TV, you'll save money that will probably come in handy once the baby is born, and you won't risk missing something you could regret the rest of your life.

blessed to grow up in Ann Arbor with such a storied and legendary team and stadium less than a mile from my house. Most wins, and most attendance. It doesn't get any better
|3 years 24 weeks ago||I know that||
there is a longstanding tradition of OSU at noon, but I would love to see a night game against them. A cold night won't stop us from coming out to watch an OSU game, and the atmosphere would be electric. A night series against Notre Dame is also a good option though. I would also really like to see Michgian hosta big name out of conference opponent at night to open the season. How does the mgoboard feel about multiple night games in a season?
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Regardless||
of how Michigan State does this year, and regardless of what happens when Michigan plays them, they are a program on the decline again. The way Hoke has been recruiting in state must be starving MSU of commitments. They don't have the national pedigree to count on getting enough quality prospects from aronud the country. Every commit we get is one they don't. In a few years, they'll be back to the little brother

I don't think this'll be the year, but Countess could very well be the next michigan shut down corner. Even this year though, he should be a very solid starter. Our secondary is in the midst of what I believe will end up as an absolutely ridiculous two year turn around. It will be so nice to have a real Michigan Defense again. Last year was getting there, but linebacker play was too inconsistent.

|3 years 24 weeks ago||The 2005 Penn State Game||
was the game that got me into football, i still remember it like it was yesterday. Lloyd Carr pulled a great move in that game though to get the two seconds back, JoePa was just bitter. It established Chad Henne to Mario Manningham, the only qb-reciever combo of that level I've seen for Michigan. Heres hoping Shane Morris and Darboh or Treadwell changes that. I was excited about switching to such a running quarterback, but the beauty of an excellent passing game has been lost.

This was an excellent post to come home to after working a late shift. Thanks OP

1. I can't see anyone on defense earning #2. The only player who I would consider giving it to is Jordan Kovacs, for his heart and his determination.
3. No helmet stickers. All we need is the wings.
4. Yes, a few different sets would be ideal.
5. I wouldn't, but it wouldn't kill me if it happened.
6. I would run a passing spread offense, plus a little extra tight endage.
7. Can't do any better than we already have
OT: I don't think this was a stupid post

It makes it a harder path to the championship as a 1 or 2 seed, but there are scenarios where it would help us too. If the playoff rules were to apply to this season, for instance, and we were to lose to Alabama in our opener, and then go undefeated for the rest of the season while USC and Alabama both went undefeated, we would have no chance of cracking the top 2. But in the playoff system, we could enter the playoffs as a 3 or 4 seed, and get another crack at Alabama. Take your own example, 2006. If we had the playoff format, after the loss to Ohio State, Michigan still would have made the playoff, and gotten another crack at the national championship.
