BYE WEEK!!!!!! 

Thank you, Lord Football.

This is a wonderful football community.   I love Michigan.   But I just need this time for myself.

It's not you, it's me.   Or its we.  Whatever.  

I'll see mgoblog in about 11 days-ish.    Dios Mio.

Got to the title game in games with opponents who might have had down years, but not historically bad decades. The last time we needed a bye week this badly was 2008. Our D is saving our ass. This feels like a 2-2 record and this isn't a good way to enter conference play.

Notre Dame needed OT to beat Purdue and should have lost to Pitt.  Both bad teams and Notre Dame went to National Championship game (I think.  Not real sure if they showed up.)  So say we are a top 40 team?  Close victories against bad teams.  Same.  I just hope we can improve (HOLD ONTO THE BALL), which is what nonconference schedule is for, right?

There have been many years where I have said "We are the best one loss team in the country.", or even some times "We are the best two loss team in the country."

This year I can safely say "We are the worst undefeated team in the country."

Can you be an undefeated team from a major conference in the beginning of October, and still be unranked?  Cause that will be us.

Maybe we can teach Devin gardener how to not fumble, our linemen how to drive block, and our D not to be so soft on every down.

Gives me a bigger appreciation for Denard. He would run it into the blender every play, get just EFFING DRILLED, then hop up smiling. Asking for more.

DG carries the ball one handed on his hip, fumbles every time he gets hit , and throws just as many int's.

bet Taylor Lewan is really glad he came back for this.

yes I said it.  Other thn getting a win, this game was a complete tire fire.  Michigan is going to get its ass kicked if it plays like that in the BIG.

Defense basically gave up 7. Not going to hold that 10 yard TD drive against them. More importantly the D line did show improvement, we got a sack with a 3 man rush. I think the D is good enough to win the Big 10 but the turnovers need to stop and the offense is really lost.

At least we have a week where the team doesn't have to focus on the upcoming game.  Hopefully they are able fix the mistakes we have been seeing the past two weeks.

I mistakenly let my wife know that there is no Michigan game next week, meaning that she will attempt to plan my weekend. I do have one thing I need to do, and that is trim back some of the faster growing shrubs, but I plan on having a cold so I can watch at least some football regardless (note: this strategy does not typically work until the afternoon games).
