Submitted by InRodWeTrust333 on December 2nd, 2010 at 9:00 PM

Per Angelique twitter account,

Denard to seniors re: Bowl "We're going to let you all out with a big victory. No matter what team, we're going to get a win"

and Per Mark Snyder

AD Dave Brandon on bowl destination: "Frank (Beckmann) thinks we might be going west, I think we might be going in a different direction."

No matter what team?  That's a little hard to swallow.  I love his enthusiasm, but not something I'd be putting my money on before I saw who we were up against.

Wow, you guys need to chill out.  I actually said I "loved his enthusiasm" and I get neg bombed for it?  Considering I've watched us play nearly every Big Ten team tight or on the losing side, I'd like to see who we were matched against before I would place a bet on it.  Me.  Not Denard.  I'm glad he said that.

And no, I am "All in".  I'm one of the last few people I know who still say RR should keep his job and be given a 4th year.

Man, everyone seems to be a little too reactive right now.

"Denard's smile is like a thousand kittens dipped in egg batter and rolled in fairy dust, fried to a deep golden brown in oil of pegasus horn, and served on a plate of dreams and starshine." -+1 to El Jeffe for assembling this beautiful statement together, couldn't have described it any better

if we go to the Gator Bowl.  Does everyone realize that the Gator bowl is at 1:30pm on 01JAN11 on ESPN2 and the Capital One Bowl is at 1pm on 01JAN11 on ESPN?  That means that we will be playing the same time as "Li'l Brother".  It would be soooo sweet to take away Sparty's thunder.  Our ratings will be so much more than Sparty's.  We get a prestigeous New Years Day bowl (which helps recruiting).  Sparty has one of its best years in 20 years and Danny Boy is coach of the year, and we still upstage them?  I just cant wait.

Not sure about that. The MSU-PSU game brought in ESPN 2's highest number for a game so far this year. I think the Capital One Bowl is the most prestigious bowl game outside of the BCS. I just find it weird that the Outback Bowl has been moved to 1PM on ABC, and the other two Big Ten games are on the ESPN channels also at 1. I used to like being able to watch the Outback Bowl early at 11, lead that into the Capital One Bowl, and then the Rose. Oh well, as long as UM is playing after the new year again, I can't complain.

I have a hunch Harbaugh would give the reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year a chance to keep his position.  And I disagree about Denard not being able to reach his full potential.  Harbaugh has already groomed two QBs into NFL prospects.  Why not with Denard, too?

I pretend this is Brian or a mod playing a hilarious joke on us by writing something so empty and rediculous. I hope this is true and it isn't a stooge that really just said that. I want to nuke you so bad, but I could never drop a nuke on a Denard thread.

With everyone returning on the offensive line, all skill players, Denard will be considered the heisman favorite next year, and honestly there's not another Michigan player i would rather see win it but him.

for next year.  Unless Denard is playing both corner positions in the bowl game, I am uneasy.  I would rather Denard wait until the team is better (next year) and guarantee victory over tOSU than make an empty promise to beat an opponent that hasn't even been named yet.
