The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

There was a huge hole on the 2nd down run but Smith just didn't see it, and cut into the pile for a loss instead. If he cuts to the hole that's probably a 20-yard gain.

This felt much more like a Bo/Mo/Lloyd loss than a Hoke loss. We fought to the bitter end, which you could not have said about a lot of Hoke's teams. We just dug too deep a hole with all the mistakes and missed opportunities.
Last year's team probably would have hung its head when the pick-six happened and the final would have been 31-10.

You don't have to be that athletic to run a QB sneak (we did it a ton with John Navarre). He just happened to slip when taking the snap.
|6 hours 13 min ago||Agree||
Even after the pick-six, the game was still within reach (24-10 with about 8:00 to go). At that point it's probably not a good idea to bring in a QB cold off the bench and ask him to be the saviour.

He did miss three of them, but we ended up scoring after the third one anyway. The first two cost us 11 points, though.

I have to say I'm underwhelmed by the uniforms. The plain numbers particularly don't look right. But it's a throwback, so whatever.

10-2. Yeah, I'm a homer. But it's easy to be one when HARBAUGH is your coach!

It's a joke. I mean, if anything, a hardcore Communist might be offended by the use of the anthem and propanganda images to celebrate something as "insignificant" as college football.

To be clear, I'm not saying Peterson's dismissal wasn't justified - just that it was a major loss at a position we really couldn't afford to lose a starter.
Someone analyzed the polls that year and concluded that an 10-1 Michigan team likely would have played in the national title game, so Illinois alone wouldn't have cost us. Anyway, I'm not certain we lose that game if we aren't coming off a loss (and in any event, it was a crazy, fluky loss).
Henson's appearance in the MSU game undoubtedly hurt us, but the biggest problem that day was that we simply had no answer for Plaxico Burress, who absolutely shredded us for like 250 receiving yards.

Eh, '98 was not a national title-level team. The '98 version of Brady wasn't nearly as good as the '99 one was, and the running game was iffy. We also weren't nearly as dominant defensively, without Woodson and Steele. 10-3 was an OK record given the team we had, although the three losses were ugly.
1999 OTOH was one player away from the national title - William Peterson. He was kicked off the team in the preseason . . . and then we had no CB good enough to cover Plaxico Burress at MSU. The secondary was our only weakness that year. Peterson would have shored it up.

On the defensive side of the ball, you do have to have a fair amount of endurance - defensive players do a lot of running over the course of a game, with limited rest time in between plays.
