I live in California and I'm younger than you, that's why I can't/haven't attend as many games as you. Just b/c you spend money at the game or going doesn't make you more of a fan than anyone else. However, when you jump ship so quickly that does make you less of a fan IMO. "Someone who is enthusiastically devoted to something" - when you turn your back on something that doesn't mean you are devoted to it. For instance, I am not a huge fan of Al Borges b/c I don't like the West Coast style of offense however I do support him. Do you honestly think that he calls plays to go for negative yardage? If you do, you're delusional. Everytime he calls a play, it is designed to score a touchdown...what other reason would you call a play? If everyone does there job, then a touchdown should be scored. Going back to my point, I don't like the WC offense but I don't turn my back on Michigan b/c he doesn't score a TD every play. I absolutely LOVE Michigan football and I honestly think they should win every game. I'm a 100% committed to Michigan being my team. It doesn't matter who's coaching, it doesn't matter if how many games I go to or how many hot dogs I buy at the game. That's what being a fan is about...not how much "capital" you can spend on the team.

I'm almost ready to stop getting on Mgoblog b/c of the people who post on here. I've never seen so many coaches with all the "right answers" that sit on the couch or at the bar watching Michigan play every Saturday. We have a young team that is struggling right now, but Michigan is still 6-2. Get a grip people. These kids are 17-22 year old kids playing a game. Why don't you enjoy watching these kids develop into a Championship team in a couple years rather than just bitch about every mistake they make.

Unfortunately, your Ortho is not correct on this one. Having disproportionate quad vs hamstring strength will put you at more risk to tearing an ACL. Quad to HS strength should be at a 3 to 2 ratio, but your HS strength is really important b/c, in regards to the shear forces at the knee, basically does the same thing as the ACL. There are a few other things that have to do with ACL tears such as quad to HS firing pattern, hip abductor strength...etc. and these ARE most definitely things that the S & C coaches can control. If they are just working quads, ie squats, deadlifts, power cleans and don't really do any focusing to the HS, the athletes definitely are more likely to tear their ACL. Is it their fault, not completely but since they have been on staff there have been far too many ACL tears to call it coincidental.

...was him having a good initial punch (which I liked), then he got caught peaking in the backfield and was too tall and got drove off the ball. I understand the concept of the drill, however I'd rather see the DL stalmate at the line and not let the lineman dictate where the play is going than the DL make the play 5 yards down the field. My example here is when Heitzman went up against Lewan the first play, I thought he did a very nice job of standing his ground and not letting Lewan man handle him (although he did after the back went through the hole). Now I don't think Q isn't going to be good, I just don't think he looked great in the 2 plays on this video. Go Blue!
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Agreed||
I agree with that, didn't look like what I was expecting out of Kalis. I also thought that Q got blown 5 yards off the ball the first play he was out there so I'm not sure where people are saying they liked what he was doing. Pipkins looked pretty good as did Wilson. Defense really didn't seem to shed as many blocks as I was hoping, could possibly be to much better O-line play.

Just an FYI, usually it's a MCL or medial meniscus issue that goes along with an ACL injury.
