|2 years 40 weeks ago||Carr's team meeting.||
I personally can't think of a scenario or circumstance where it would ever be a better life option to get your degree from from places like Ohio or Colorado, over the University of Michigan but thats just my take on it.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Basketball is a game of runs.||
I always thought all teams where streaky but maybe Michigan is a tad more because of the 3's....Be patient Michigan will streak for you, promise...
|2 years 46 weeks ago||It really hurt me||
to see Denard on the sideline. Denard is such a good kid and has done so much for Michigan. He is such an amazing football talent and I believe Borges will use him in the best possible way to help us win our final two games.
I just hope that I'm not seeing what I think I'm seeing, as it pertains to Denard and his future to be the Michigan QB. I trust this coaching staff to continue to use both QB's in the best way to help Michigan win out and get to a BCS bowl.(Maybe)
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Sorry I tuned in||
they were nailing 3's untill then, now there 1-13 down the stretch.
Living and dieing by the 3 this team is definantly a work in progress. But I guess thats what these 1st few games are for.They need Horford of JM to give them something down low to challenge for b-10 title.
It's still just game 1, and remember it took them a while to get it together last year. Plus, it's basketball which means it's a game of runs, I just missed there 1st half so it looked worse than it was. They'll get it going in the second half, no doubt.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||I tried all 3 browsers and open in a new tab but no luck.||
Maybe im not doing it right.
This is so depressing I was looking forward to this game all day..
EDIT: Thxs a million for the stream. Way to be selfless.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Same, signed up||
last week free be cobe an now it wants me to sign up again.
If anyone figure's this out could you please post how you did?
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Hemingway catch||
had a chance if it had been called a TD on the field but the nose of the football clearly hit the ground and shifted through his grasp. The field ruling was never going to be overturned, probably either way.
The thing that had me baffeled and still does even after Borges said "there was know getting to the edges with Denard Iowa wasn't going to allow that" was the 4th down call. I never thought in a million years that Michigan would throw it on 4th down. Watching the 1st three plays I thought, (well if they get to 4th down they'll have to run there 2-point conversion play) which stupid me was conviced it would be either option left, right or a Denard lead left or right.
It isn't fair to second guess Borges because he know's the game of football way more than a loyal fan like me but in those situation's I always thought you go to your strength's not your weakness. Unless your out talented then sometimes you do have to go where the defense isn't.
I still don't know if we played bad or if Iowa just has more talent than us. I still hate admitting that other teams have more talent than us but they dictated the game up front on both sides and better teams tend to do that. I liked it better when we could say," we were young" or "we don't have any depth". What really scares me is that I watched Iowa a few times this year and Iowa's defense was really bad.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||If Michgan wins out||
and MSU loses at Iowa & at Northwestern, and Iowa loses there last game of the year at Nebraska we go to Big-10 Championship game.
I know thats alot to ask for but atleast if we win out I think Michigan fans will be happy with the bowl we get, BCS?
|2 years 47 weeks ago||I'm on record of||
being in Gordons corner over Woolfolk.
To me it seems that Woolfolk takes bad angles maybe because he wants to takle from the side and not heads up, I don't know but I don't think he's physical enough for safety.
His speed is a plus but like Mangus stated, Iowa went with a quick strike passing game to probably avoid Mattison's zone blitz packages and to atack Floyd's back pedal. I think coverage and takling might have worked better.
Denard does seem slower or just hesitant at times. One thing I've noticed is the pulling lineman seem to not only anounce the play but also take for ever and Denard has to wait on them allowing defences to get the angle or force the cutback.
One last thing on Denard is it just me or does he seam to immediately look for the side line when he gets to the second level. I understand it though he is our QB and we need him to avoid injury.
Just some observations but what do I know.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||This is my take on it||
Keep in mind that this is based on Neb, MSU, and UM winning all other games not mentioned in said senario.
Michigan gets in if....
Senario 1- Michigan wins out and Michigan St. loses one of it's final 4 games.
Senario 2- Michigan beats Nebraska and Iowa and goes 1-1 with Illinois and Ohio St. Michigan St goes 2-1 vs Iowa, NW, or Minny.
Senario 3- If MSU loses only to IU and wins there other 3 gms, and Michigan does senario 2 it would get a little tricky, not likely, so ill leave it out = It would go to #4, common conference opponets if anyone else wants to figure that one out.
Explanation on senario 2, MSU would be eliminated under step # 2, because they would be 3-2 in division and both Neb and UM would be 4-1. So in a 3 way tie, if any team is removed through a step the two teams left will go to head to head. Mich beating Neb will get us in.
Bottom line Michigan must beat both Iowa and Neb to have any chance to get in and even then they will still need MSU to lose 1 more game.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||T. Gordon's and....||
I don't even think it's close.
Woolkolk over Gordon? no. Woolfolk over Avery as the 5th db? Maybe.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Paterno had the nods||
I think it was in the 2nd, Penn St. was down on the goaline and there was a decision to be made on whether or not to go for it on 4th dn. The camera was focused on Jo Pa up in the booth and the announcers said somethin like, "Paterno has a huge decision to make". He was nodding out, mid day, during a Penn St. football game, unbeleavable.
Does anyone still think that he has anything to do with any decision's at all?
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Keep'em coming||
HOKE!...I'm in total shock right now. It's causing me to have to read everything twice but---^@*%^$...I'm just speechless.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||My only problem with all this is...||
Why do these kids keep signing to these schools, (Ala. LSU), if they know they run the risk of being cut??...If all this is true you think these kids and there parents would take a closer look at the SEC school's that participate in this...I'm not trying to argue I truely would like to know because you would expect to see a down swing in quality of there recruiting...no?...just askin...
|3 years 36 weeks ago||That picture reminds me of just how cold it gets in Michigan..||
I've been living down here in Florida since I left Michigan in 2008...Yikes!
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I know nothing about watching video like some on here but||
I'm sold on this kid from what I've seen....Again, I suck at being able to tell whether a kid, (by watching High School tape alone), can play or not.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I always thought,||
that as Michigan fans we all were excited that rr was going to focus on the south.(Florida)...As was stated, this is where most of the talent is...no?
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I hope your correct. However,||
while at the Bowl game one thing I noticed that I never was able to watching on TV, was that Denard had recievers running down the middle of the field wide open (because MSU was blitzing there lb's on almost every play), but he was never able to see them.....I'm sure there are reason's for this that people a lot smarter than me could point out, like: scheme, youth, height, ect.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Is it||
Febuary 2nd yet?...Every day I'm getting more n more excited about this staff's ability to recruit.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||We still||
have Hill though...Well then just keep building the defense Martin Mayhew.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I'm with you (six zero).||
My girlfiend suprised me on x-mas mourning with a #5, jersey so I could represent at the Bowl Game...I told her that I loved but wished it was #16 because come next year I was pretty sure I was going to be sporting a Courtney Avery jersey..lol
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I get a flash of arrector pili||
when I listen to Denard describe his reason's for staying. It gives me a lot of hope for the future of Michigan football...Go Blue 4 Life
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Sorry||
but I have to disagree with the OP.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Thanks a lot.||
You always seem to have quality threads.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Yeeees!||
This is great news because I truely believe that with Denard on board everything else will fall into place, at least attrition wise. I was wondering if anyone on here believes that Denard could still win the Hiesman?...Or will he lose out to the Pro-Style offense and it's tendency equally distribute the football?
|3 years 37 weeks ago||My brother sent me a text while at school yesterday and said,||
"Hoke it is", I was in the middle of doing a Pediatric patient assessment and I simply walked out on my instructor. He's a die-hard Hurricanes fan so he thankfully he understood. Anyway, as of today I'm 100% behind Hoke, my love for Michigan demands it.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||I wish Rich would||
let us know how important this game is to Michigan now and the future...I feel so bad for him, it sounds like everything he says is in defense of in case we lose.BUT I also heard him say "guys win or lose this game were gonna be better next year and even better the year after that". I believe you Rich and to show it I'll be there win or lose in Jacksonville with you, for you, and in total support of you. Go Blue!
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Indiana win at the time.||
The win vs Indiana was big at the time. Ya, I know its Indiana but it was 2 undefeated teams at the time and it preceded the MSU game. It wasn't until around 1:00pm, the following week , when Ohio st. was pummeling Indiana, (28-0 in the second quarter), that I was like, "uh-oh".
|3 years 41 weeks ago||LOL||
Never seen anyone on a fast break pull-up for 7 inch jumper...poor Novak tried.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||This half has been||
a little frustrating. The only word that I can think of is, LAZY. This is not a team that can just show up and expect a win. For those of you who didn't get to catch the UTEP game, there effort tonight looks about the same. That night I kept waiting for them to get it going and they never did. Luckily for us NCCU is a horrible team.
