Can Michigan please not play any more night games, except for the 4th quarter at Notre Dame last year, they have not played well at all at night. 

Also, Borges sucks!.. I know Denard injury and everything, but the game plan with Denard in there was bad.  Maybe the lanes would have opened up if he wwas in there, and they would have been better but I doubt it.  They were anemic.    How is it that the defense can play so fundamentally sound, but the offense could be defended by my daughter's preschool class. 

My guess is, Denard sits next game to give offense practice without him.

Michigan loses, Denard is hurt. Had a chance to put a strangle hold on the division. The Tigers lose, their bats are hurt. Had a chance (again) to beat a team in the world series they were supposedly better than. Ohio wins. MSU wins. Ari-frickin-zona beats USC? With that doucher for a coach? ND wins. WtFitz is going on? Am I the only one around here that gives a fuck about the rules? I understand the ups (betting on last weeks point spread=$$) and downs of sports, but below average weekend TSTL...

Lol - Now let's watch the meltdown begin. It's one loss. Nebraska and Bo Pelini are incompetent on the road, they'll lose to Michigan State next week and probably again to Penn State. As long as we can win out until ohio we'll be okay. Ohio looks good..obviously if it comes to a head to head with Neb we are done. 

The tigers are awful. Really begs the question of where greatness is earned. In the regular season? Or when it's all on the line? Leyland and his entire coaching staff should be out of a job, maybe the pitching coach can stick around.

Else last night there would have been two shutouts featuring teams from the state of Michigan.

As for the Tigers, fully 50% of the team's payroll has taken off the past week.  But enough of the Detroit Charlatans, on to football.

Last night we witnessed what happens to a team's offense when it has relied upon one person to be 95% of the offense.  By himself Denard Robinson's heavy lifting has aided and abetted what can only be be described as complacency by both the coaching staff and the players not named Denard.

The O Line doesn't open up holes, no problem, have Denard run around the end or squeeze between the wide bodies.  Denard not passing well, no problem, have him run.  Receivers having cases of droppsies or poor route running?  Denard to the rescue.  Al Borges doesn't ensure his two deep at QB is ready....Hoke isn't worried, Denard is Superman that only suffers "boo boos".

Conciously or uncounciously, Brady Hoke and Al Borges set Russell Bellomy up for failure, something they did by not giving serious consideration to the absence of DR.
