Juneau was the man.I have lots of friends from RPI- almost went there myself

2 things come to mind:
1) well, the CBs scored as many TDs in the ND games as the offense
2) hindisght is always 20/20, eh coach? I mean, I'm glad they are willing to make a change, but, much like the OL last year, I wish these coaches would be able to avoid mistakes like these by knowing their personnel and how they fit into the scheme. If countess is such a good nickle, play him there. either way (at nickle or boundry) peppers will have a learning curve.

they were the best team I've ever seen, except for maybe the 95-97 M teams (who aren't in the bracket- a big oversight IMO) and the Maine 91-93 teams. Maybe the Dryden Cornell teams, but I never saw them play myself.
The 85 RPI team had several NHLers including Darren Puppa (G), John Carter (RW) and eventual HOFer Adam Oates. That team was dominant.

I was a FR in '95 (19 hundred ya jerks) and I recall the memphis and/or miamiU games that year being not televised. I remember b/c it was a big difference b/t televised and non-televised games back then re: TV timeouts.

At this point, there is nothing any B10 team can do to get into the playoff. The B10 is bad and it should feel bad.
And personally, let it burn. M is turrible, the rest of the league lost (OSU- by proxy thanks to ECU beating VT). I hope everyone goes 4-4 in both divisions, no one can figure out the tie breakers and they cancel the title game.

yeah, RS So in this 2nd start... new enough for me - especially with a new OC
|6 days 21 hours ago||Yeah, this speaks to a point||
Yeah, this speaks to a point I realized 5-6 years ago and I think Brian may have overlooked (giving the WRs a 4 overall, IIRC from the season previews). And that is this:
Having inexperienced WRs is usually a very bad thing for an offense. Nievely, one might think- "hey it's not that hard, run the route you're supposed to run. Young guys play at WR a lot and there's a bit less of a learning curve needed for the position (compared to safety, OL and QB anyway)."
But these days WRs need to be on the same page as the QB and the rest of the team- their mistakes are deadly at times too (see that WR screen that Chesson blocked the wrong guy). See the bad routes. I am slowly coming to the conclusion that having all new WRs (including Funchess to a limited extent) is about as bad as having a new starter at QB. I thought 5 was high, and 3 seems more reasonable- maybe 3.5 given the potential of #1- but remember he's kind of new to the position too.

well, considering this is like the 1st time the backs have actually seen what an open hole looks like, maybe they literally didn't know one when they saw one?

the problems wiht the M football team won't be fixed by anyone but Brady Hoke & Co. there is no new scheme on D- just more tight coverage techniques and Jake Ryan in the middle. The D is deep, fairly talented and VERY experienced. The O is a clusterfuck, but hopefully can become mediocre. M is still looking at 8 wins, but can get to 9. Utah and Minnesota and @ Rutgers will give us some good info.

My belief of Michigan's record pre-season and what it is now hasn't changed.
so you had the ND game penciled in as a blowout loss? at the very least a solid loss, but perhaps you interepret this game as saying that ND is better than you thought, rather than M is worse than you may have thought preseason?

That's right.... I'm talking about none other than the man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Kirk H. W. Herbstreet III, MD, DDS, ASPCA, Esq. Junyah
He's never steered us wrong before.
