Great game by Michigan. There are a lot of complaints about the cupcake games (not that anyone would have called this a cupcake game beforehand, given the history), but these games have been a good source of experience for the backups to get real game experience and rest the starters. I think part of why it's been so painful to rebuilding the program has been the lack of real comfortable wins where backups get significant playing time. That said, last year we beat Central Michigan 59-9 and everyone played, so a big win in the opener doesn't really portend a great season.

I think the offense will be simple and vanilla for the first game. As for the first play, something quick like pass after a three step drop or a quick pass from the shotgun would be best. Something that doesn't require the line to block very long.
Also, didn't Charlie Weis used to do this? Decided schematic advantage.

The premise is that act scores have risen at all the schools in the b1g in recent years except msu. Since michigan and msu both accept mostly in state students, it's surprising that the act score at msu wouldn't go up as michigan's did simply as a factor of students with borderline scores now going to msu because they did not get into michigan. I guess either msu takes too many students to for this to have an effect or those borderline kids are going elsewhere.

Nice analogy. When I clicked on this, I was worried you'd say that olinemen were line mathematicians because they peak at a young age.

So, either he didn't wear adult diapers so he could avoid stopping OR he wore the diapers, but didn't go there with a plan to kidnap his professor?

We have a tough road schedule, but even more we've done little to prove we won't shit the bed when we play on the road. This has been a consistent problem for Hoke's teams at Michigan, but I've always thought this would get better as players matured. I think we'll need to see some change here this year or I think it reflects badly on the potential of this coaching staff to move the program forward.

It's no wonder the OL still looks poor compared to the DL. They're mostly RS Fr/So. Crazy how most of the depth chart on defense is juniors and seniors (finally!). I think the defense will be amazing this year and the offense will be good enough with Gardner's leadership. Maybe wishful thinking, but I'd imagine that with the core of starters set and practicing together, they will improve greatly in the early season and be much more solid by the open of the B1G season.

I hope he plays on saturdays.

I like the "team 135" (on the arm of the shirt) in the video. As for the uniform, I don't really care. It's interesting, I hope the kids like it.

I like to think that Gardner's stats were similar to Teddy Bridgewater's stats as a junior (except for the completion percentage). Bridgewater played one more game since DG was injured for the bowl game. DG also had 11 rush TDs, so I think that accounts for some of the difference between Bridgewater's 27 and Gardner's 21 TD passes. Overall, I'd be thrilled if Gardner can make a similar transition between Jr and Sr years and cut down the Ints while maintaining TDs. .

We should be at least 10 wins if the talent plays up to expectations. I think that the biggest thing is a passing game with fewer mistakes from the drops to the bad reads. just catch the damn ball.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I just hope that we never||
I just hope that we never have to actually ask this question. We have tons of talent on this offensive line with a qb who could be a first round pick if he can put it together and running backs who were top recruits out of high school. Oh, and we have perhaps the most dangerous receiver since Mario Manningham in Funchess. It's time for the players to make plays and not excuses and it's up to the coaches to make sure they're in positions to succeed. I for one am tired of the blame game. Time for Michigan to play well enough that we don't have to waste time with blaming anyone anymore.

It's a good way to make extra money for the program. It would be awesome if they used the revenue to offset the loss of a michigan home game to get a good home/ away series vs a team like USC, Texas, Bama, etc. Very few schools could do that and be successful, it's a great opportunity. The other thing he could use the money for is lowering the prices of tickets to maintain attendance.

Every year there are hype videos where the offense makes a great play or the defense makes a great play. I'm never sure whether to be excited or disappointed. Finally a video has both players playing great. These two could both be the best in the B1G at their positions at some point in their careers.
