days until Nick Saban realizes he made a poor life decision scheduling the home opener against the future Big Ten Champions and Rose Bowl Winners!

i'm so excited for the opener. i know its alabama and nick saban, but given how much talent they lost, i know we have a chance. if we pull it off, hello driver's seat for national championship, and especially the rose bowl. if we beat bama, we can beat anyone on our schedule.

This is one of those games that is so polarizing for me. I desperately want to see an improved Denard Robinson make solid decisions against a good defense. I'm also scared to death of the possibility that they expose our new lineman.

149 days seems like an eternity right now but it always seems like spring ball ends and we're suddenly playing football games again. That anxious feeling never changes.

if denard makes good decisions, we can absolutely beat bama. but he will need to have the game of his life. better than both notre dame games put together. he will need the type of game that screams +300 yds passing, +100 yds rushing, and no int's. and fitz will need to follow suit. at least 100+ yds rushing. there's no better time to take on bama, when their defense is inexperienced and ungelled. if denard plays the game of his collegiate career, there's no reason we can't beat them.

I don't know about 300 passing yards. If he doesn't turn the ball over and makes good rushing reads we should be able to make it a game. Alabama is going to give him a multitude of NFL type looks and fronts to play against so he just needs to be smart. If he tries to fit the ball into spaces we're going to be looking at a massacre.

I'm skeptical of their offense. They've still got talent but they haven't ever played an aggressive style and without Trent Richardson I think we can stay within striking distance throughout the game.

I think it should be noted that there are exactly 200 days until October 20th when sparty comes to Ann Arbor to get smacked. They seem very confident about winning 5 in a row but its not happening. Michigan is gonna win by at least 2 touchdowns.

Alabama's defense will be good. I'm interested to see how DROB and the offense will match up against good physical defense. I think our defense will play well but still am worried about the offense being controlled up front. Even if we lose, I just hope it is a good close game. I would love it if we could win this one.

ND will probably be a close game. As always they will be out for revenge against us...but I think they will make their ND mistakes and DROB will take advantage.

Alabama will show lots of nfl d style looks but thank god we have denard practicing everyday against a d that also gives alot of nfl looks i think that will help out a great deal when playing against bama.I believe we will see a different drob this yr if he can just keep the turnovers down even with the tough schedule i think we can do big things this yr.

Nick Saban has never made a poor life decision. Well that is unless you don't count being born in West Virginia. Which come to think of it, he really couldn't control. So yeah, Nick Saban has never made a poor life decision.

Maybe coaching in the nfl for the dolphins, hiring a coordinator and having him move to Alabama and then telling him you don't have a position for him, or causing quite a few of your players to report to the wall street journal that you cut their scholarships
to make room for new incoming players. Just a thought ;)

Fucking over hundreds of kids by yanking their plans? We only here about the people he signed. He also fisted sparty, which I am fine with. Rich Rod did us dirty by keeping Gerg, unless he was really that ignorant. It its a vicious cycle of mostly assholes that coach. Thank goodness for Bo, and coaches with some conscience.
