I understand not everyone can or wants to jump on the badwagon. But seriously? I would normally say I'd expect positive things from a Michigan almnus but then again I think there have been other articles about Amani Toomer not supporting the new coaching staff. Regardless, I heard this bit on the BTN's Saturday Morning Kickoff a few minutes ago:
Rick PIzzo: Is the jury still out for you?
Amani Toomer: Definitely, I wasn't really happy with the way they performed last week. After going through the film and looking at the stats ... and the stats are a little bit misleading. Watching the game I wasn't impressed, I didn't feel like they had that balance that they really needed.
With that being said, I'm so happy to see Denard Robinson stepping out. He wasn't the starting QB last year. Got an opportunity to play. Last year everytime I saw him I called him apple(?) because he'd turn the ball over every time he got in the game.... yadda yadda yadda...
Honestly, I don't know what more he could want. First of all, 19/22 for 186 passing yards and 287 total rushing yards isn't balanced? Sounds like an offensive explosion to me. So does flipping rushing/passing stats make it more balanced? Or just more typical, Amani. Who cares how you get there.
Let's say I agree with him (I don't), but if we didn't have to be more "balanced" in a lopsided win, why would we? Ugh, some people just can't accept a stellar performance even if its by one man on the team. If this was any other player, I doubt he'd be saying anything. If it was Braylon Edwards with 300 receiving yards, or Anthony Thomas with 200 rushing yards I wonder if he would still be complaining about not having a "balanced attack".
Anyway, that's all I have to say as I'm sick of people, especially alumni who clearly can't accept what Michigan is aiming to become. Good luck vs the Irish. Go Blue!
