there would have to be some to wash away

I thought there were some good parts to that presser, and some not so good parts. Obviously, we want more of the good parts, but he's working hard and taking every presser as a new opportunity as it comes.

We've got good players, just about everywhere. And yet we lose. Maybe coaching is an issue?

The decent people of the gopher state won't tolerate it. Best bet for the Vikings and for the NFL is to trade him, even at pennies on the dollar, to some place where -- right or wrong (and I'm going with 'worng') -- the fans just don't care.

three generations of Number 7 males* will be there!
*(not actual number 7s, though, who knows, maybe Rick Leach comes back for games. I just mean that I'll be going with my Dad and my son)

|1 week 5 days ago||So you're saying . . .||
"They just need to execute better"?
Seriously though, I agree. Just like the last three wins over ND covered up a lot of worrisome issues that came out in the UFR, this loss --and in partiular the score -- covers up a lot of signs of progress. That said, I have more hope that the secondary gets better (at least because of returning personnel), than I do that Green's vision improves.
One more thing: More often than not, Green went right when the left side was blasting the hole. Maybe this reflected an instruction to run away from Day, but I think Cole/Mags were the better run blockers than Glasgow/Braden.

Between that and the Jello Gif, I may be here all night.

Especially when nobody would have faulted you for:
"Best: Nothing; Worst: Everything" and leaving it at that.
I was surprised that you didn't give a "Best" nod to the run defense. ND average 6.7 yards per carry against Rice, and 1.7 against us. Sure, there was a cost to our apparent focus on the run - maybe the DL's were too conservative in prioritizing hilding the line over beating their man and getting into the backfield, and maybe the LB's were hedging toward the middle and thereby leaving open the quick hits that were Golstn's bread and butter on 3rd down -- but we did stop the run, all game.

We live in an imperfect world. Michgian football can recover from this ugly loss. My preference is that 1) that happens, and 2) because that happens, Hoke remains the coach next year.

but I agree.
( Except it would be a major upset to beat state; every other game seems eminently winnable).

but they tried running 31 times, so is not like the run d number (actually 1.7) was a statistical fluke.
avg yards per pass attempt was 6.6. not great, but not horrible either.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||the lone bright spot||
Excellent run D limited them to 1.9 yds/carry.
but maybe we were so geared for the run that we eschewed any prospect of ruching the passer?

Appreciate, instead, the awesomeness of the Gedon convoy photo and the Gardner/Harmon side-by-side. Both were among the best things I've "read" today.

reminds me of a comment I heard from a couple of notre dame fans filling into the game for utl1, as they received mild grief from the home crowd: "folks are much nicer here than in Columbus". Which I think UM and OSU fans would both take as a compliment.

You know who else was tagged with "the most college-ready" label? Jack Miller (a little) and Kugler (a lot). At this point I'm thinking those words don't mean what I think they mean.

the Fightin' Dan Snyders have the best chance, unless Chip Kelly is the genius some folks believe him to be.

I would assume that the guy's Dad is kind of a dick, too. Not hard to spot a dick of a soccer dad on the sideline of game.

might have been my first game. went back to school on Monday, and was the first kids in my class to have learned my 7's (this was first grade). why? something to do with a 70-14 final score.

do you think football is going to fall off some sort of concussion syndrome cliff, losing credibility to the point where it is shunned in polite conversation, and major universities stop supporting it?
if it does, can anything else fill the Big House? college soccer? lacrosse? rugby?

at Safety, Wilson's and Clark's listed 13-to-14 gains are actuall their 12-to-S14 gains.

But I would want my fans to come up with a praise-filled piece when they Google the name of the prospect they've otherwise never heard of.
