I'm and old MGoBlogger. I'm still an advocate for Haloscan. I loved the WLA and posted a few things there. I think RR was a great hire that just didn't pan out. When I graduated from college this blog switched to Drupal and it was harder to post, the community changed and I found myself with a job that kept me too busy to post. This blog is great, the community is too. There's posters that aren't amazing and have horrible opinions but it's so much better than when I was here and we just handle-jacked each other all day. It's been a rough 8 year for those of us who are still around and I remember watching UM football as a person old enough to think "this isn't what I watched as a kid". I'm 30 years old now. And I watch Rudock and think "this is so nice....he doesn't lose every game". I read Bacon's book and everyone of Devin Gardner's stat lines included two picks. I loved Devin and think he was such a great player who just was in the right place at the wrong time. But Rudock is so much less talented and so much more solid than he is.
Please stop saying "if he could throw a deep ball we'd be a top 10 team".
Please stop saying "if we had a real QB we could be Ohio State"
Please stop forgetting that most people thought 8-4 was a good season this year.
This team has performed exactly as expected. Rudock may have more picks than expected but those are mainly from the first game and that was just a better team. He and this team will be good, not great. I'm excited too but let's not act like this team are defending national champs returning 22 starters. They are basically what everyone expected. 2-1 with a winnable game against a good BYU team. They've improved and have a chance to be competitve against everyone they play.
Hate Rudock if you want but don't act like it's been better around here the past 7 years.
