The loudest I've ever heard it was the Harbaugh to Kolesar TD pass against Ohio State in 1985.
The last play of the "Kickoff Classic" in 1995, the walk-off TD to beat Virginia, was alos very loud.

He must truly be impressed. No belittling snark for the Buckeye home crowd to lap up. Just straight analysis. If we beat State, especially if we look really good doing it, it will be interesting to see what the tone is going to be for the rest of these this year.

I am salivating at the prospect of a Michigan FB popping out of the line while an MSU A-gap blitzer charges right past him as he waves goodbye.

The 50% 3rd down conversion rate could arguably be the thing that's kept them undefeated.
Absolutely. It is the only reason they were able to beat Rutgers. Just one more 3rd and long stop and Rutgers wins that game.

Tell you what, for every TD bomb he throws, we'll take off a "d".
Here's hoping he's Ruock by the time of the OSU game.

But if I'm Durkin I'm going to stay at Michigan a little while and build up my resume as a Harbaugh protege. That way I can have my pick of top jobs that fit me, like Hanlon going to Houston, and not have to take a risk on tire fires like Maryland and Purdue.

We still have Miles. And now we've added Harbaugh.
Plenty of crazy still left in the barn.

Having witnessed every Michigan - MSU game since 1982, it's not a dumb stat. And it's not the result of the team that already has the lead running the ball to kill off the clock.
It's cause and effect. The team that can run the ball better wins. The team that can't loses. It's the inherent nature of this series.
Clearly we are not going to win by counting on Rudock to move the ball downfield if our running game can't. And MSU can't rely just on Cook. He will hit some, but he will be under enough pressure that he won't be aboe to hit every pass to sustain drives.

Rutgers was able to hit some deep passes that kept MSU from crowding the LOS. Leonte Carroo was very dangerous.
If we want to run like Rutgers did, we will have to do the same thing.

Rudock is due to hit a long one for a TD. It needs to happen, and it needs to happen early to back off the DB and LBs.
Teams have been playing us with all 11 men in the box. We've still been able to move the ball on teams that are not as talented as us, which quite frankly includes NW, but we can't count on that against MSU.
Their DL is still first class. If they get to augment them with all the LBs and DBs in the box, we're going to have a tough time moving the ball.

Randy Edsall: It's like that famous scene in the Lion King: "It's in the pass. You can either run the ball or learn how to pass."

We need to beat Ohio State at full strength and win Big Ten Championships. That's when we are back.
That's what we used to do more often than not, that's what we need to do again.
We are making progress, much faster than anyone expected, but have not arrived until we beat OSU and win the B1G.

One thing I do want to see is how this team reacts when it's punched in the mouth. We have not had that happen since week one when we came out on the losing end.
This is a different team now, but we need to see how it plays when it's behind 2 scores and not just ahead 5 scores.
|13 hours 12 min ago||Beating Northwestern and||
Beating Northwestern and beating MSU are not remotely alike.
And beating MSU and beating OSU will not be remotely alike this year either.
If we beat MSU we will advance up the ladder, but we will not be able to fully declare we are back until we beat OSU at full strength.
So yes, there will still be some healthy caution throughout the season.

No imagination required: Andrew Luck.
We are going to be Stanford in it's Harbaugh prime on offense, combined with an SEC defense.
I find that a little bit frightening even as a Michigan fan. OSU and MSU must be terrified.
|13 hours 29 min ago||It makes us very hard to||
It makes us very hard to defend. Everybody is eligible for everything. Fullbacks catch passes, Receivers run the ball, RBs block on sweeps. You can't predict who is going to do what, even if you can generically predict run or pass.
You have to play assignment football. You can't try to get numbers to where you think the ball is going to go. This is problematic when you have to defend guys like Smith or Chesson, which you can't do with one guy.

I don't feel like I can call plays like I could with Lloyd and Hoke
Yes, he even mixes up Lloyd's beloved "trick play", the Waggle. It's not always to the TE on the right side. Sometimes it's to a RB, sometimes to a receiver, sometimes to the other TE that has dragged across, depending on who gets open and who is blocked. And of course, sometimes Rudock pulls it down and runs.
It is much harder to defend than the previous version where all you had to do was cover up the TE on the right side as soon as you saw the QB do a naked bootleg.

In all fairness, CCGs, Playoffs, and Bowl games should not count. Some teams like Alabama would always get extra games, some like Purdue would never get any.
