I would buy your ticket on stub hub, go to the game, hate the thongs you have stated, but love watching my beloved team play in the big house, go home and be ready to do it again. Thus still having 110,000+ for everygame.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Y dis so hard??||
Yes...too funny stuff.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||So.....||
GERG ran a break, but don't bend defense?
|4 years 32 weeks ago||Ummm....||
Do you agree that if we had played the first half in the "spread" offense, that it would have been a 28 point much quicker? We would have all had a different feeling about this game if this were the case. Remember that this coaching staff is still learning what they have here, and that they have shown the flexibility to adapt to it. If they figure out the correct balance of "spread" and "pro" (which I believe that the pro set is an important part of our attack-especially in the red zone), this offense can indeed become ridiculously dangerous.

I think that last year denard set up everything the offense was about, and this year he is bailing the offense out of everything it is about.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||OMG||

Brian I know how you feel. I.too fell I'm love with the intricacies of the spread-n-shred....to the point that I thought I would not "enjoy" Michigan football as much as I have over the last few years. Even though M was loosing, I was entranced by the strategery and excitement of it all. I honestly thought that my addiction to mgoblog would subside. Then Mattison, then Borges turned into a guy loves Denard as much as I do, now I am a card carrying Hokemaniac, and I read the blog and follow M football as close as ever. I love the kids on this team and I really hope they can stay healthy, as a group, and show us all what that can do.

Must be like 6'8" or at least I hope...we can't have a LB coach that is 5'5"
|4 years 36 weeks ago||This.^^^^ yes.|

We could argue until we are blue in the face about what RR "should have" have done while he was restocking his cupboard. I guess all I can say is my belief is that RR is a "different" kind of coach. Sure Jim tressel can take any team of 4-5 star kids and average 10.5 wins/year (maybe luck into a MNC 1 time per decade)...but I still think RR, after givin time to fill the team with his specific talent (he is very specific in what his O is designed to be) he cou;ld even more succesfull than that. I cannot get angry at him for having so much confidence in HIS system...he created it and it worked for him everywhere he has coached.
I do, however, think that he may have been a little cocky and thought that it would work much faster here at M and I believe this is why he has not cltered his system. I also think that if he had to do it all over again he would do things differently, but I'm not concerned about how he did things over the past three years AS MUCH as I am concerned about what will happen going forward.
Let's think of this hypothetically
Dec 2007 - Lloyd Carr resigns and UM hires some random spread guy, say...Gary Pinkell
Gary Pinkell goes 3-9 5-7 7-5 in three seasons at UM and gets run out of town, but michigan has the exact sme roster as they do now.
RR meanwhile is still completely dominating the shitty Big Easy Conference at WVU
Wouldnt you consider him the absolute best fit to take over this team? I know you are probably gonna say no (because of the history of the last three years) but My point is this - RR fucked alot of things up in his first three years at M - but if he learns from his mistakes (and I think he has done that to an extent--his recruiting has stepped up in the D catagory particularly in this and last-years class-but it's gonna take a little time to develop these players) he could be truly special here at M. Just because he didnt make the adjustments that you talk about, doesnt mean that he is a shit coach, but that he did not understand what it was going to take to win here until after that 3-9 wake up call. He has a brilliant football mind (i will argue that with anyone any day, although I suspect you wouldn't argue that point) but he has had to learn how to apply that mindset to the big ten....he didnt play big ten football....never coached it....he had to learn it first hand. And now that he has, I have the faith that he can do the things that he (and I) thought he could do with M level talent.
