The title cutoff at "EMAHG". I started to wonder to wonder what E and A stood for, because I was sure M was Michigan, and HG was Hating God. It was a scary few moments there. Note to self: you spend too much time on MGoBlog.

I know it's really early and these are just practice highlights, but those passes they showed looked really nice. I know that when the season starts and defenses start scheming to make it harder for Denard to pass that things may not look that pretty. With that said however I have felt that Denard has improved as a passer every year since he has started and I don't expect too much different this year. With our run game actually being existent like it was last year, I have a feeling Denard has a decent year passing.

I know this video is from practices and everything but it seems like Denard's timing is much improved. We'll have to wait for the season to see if he has made strides, but he looks more comfortable with what he is doing.

Check out the TD pass to Gallon at 1:15 -- some dope left a blocking sled right next to the endzone sideline. Gallon and Countess are both lucky to see it and get a foot down after going out of bounds, so they manage to hop over it after Gallon's catch. I about had a heart attack when I saw that -- we're lucky those guys didn't step on it and get hurt. Am I just a worry-wort, or shouldn't stuff like that be farther away from the boundary when you're running drills with guys catching balls on the sideline right there?

I thought the content was fine - it was the title that resulted in a downvote.

This worst-ever-invented "ERMAHGERD" meme has finally started to play itself out on Reddit, and now it makes me want to punch a kitten that it's just gaining legs here and looks like it might be around until Denard graduates.

Get off my lawn.

The few throws they highlighted looked really good, so it seems like he really is growing comfortable with Al's system. There was a rhythm to the throws, and mechanically, they look great. Good video and a great interview.

Denard today, and Jake tomorrow...we're getting some of the most awesome hair on the team this week as a bonus from CTK, it seems. Ryan is a favorite of mine as well on defense (along with others here).
