Looks like Ejuan Price is getting a lot of playing time for Pitt.  Man you add him to what we have and that is one hell of a defensive recruiting class.

Is it my tv, or is the blue of UofM's jerseys just a bit off this year? It's a different blue than the helmet.

slippy's picture

I haven't noticed.  But I will say I'm from Delaware so I grew up watching them in bizarro-UM jerseys.  Problem was UD's colors are royal blue and yellow.  So the jerseys were royal blue and the helmets were darker like Michigan's blue.  It wasn't pretty.  They've finally lightened the helmets though.

Menexenus's picture

You have inspired me to correct the color of my avatar a bit.  (It used to be royal blue, but I darkened it a bit.)

"You inspire me!  Three weeks."  :-)

Real fans stay for Carmen.

These early big ten games blow..stickin to the ND-Pitt &N.C./G-Tech game.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Menexenus's picture

So far, ND/Pitt is the only game worth watching among the early ones, IMHO.

Real fans stay for Carmen.

Menexenus's picture

Pitt just took the lead!  Yeah!

Real fans stay for Carmen.

So Michigan is apparently semi-decent this year.

It's still September. They've been good through September in each of the last four seasons.

Well that's because the have a heisman trophy winning qb, a defensive genius and a true visionary, meatchicken man at the helm.... Until they play a decent team (no, notre dame sucks) then they will have a running qb in a pocket passing offense, far below average talent on D, and a hc that would be best served in a hot dog eating contest. Which is convenient because the WHOLE DAMN STATE SMELLS LIKE HOT DOG WATER!

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

Did Lindsay Bluth open up a chain of restaurants in Michigan?

Robinson will get dinged up and their offense numbers will fall again.

DJ Byrnes's picture

I agree, but SD State isn't a slouch. Brady Hoke, as much as I bash on him, is inevitably going to be a good hire for Michigan.

I'll now step outside and attempt to pull my retinas out with hot pliers.

Jason Priestas's picture

I think he'll be good for them in the long run as well, but this year, at least, they don't have the size or defensive talent to hang once the B1G schedule kicks in.

SilverBullets's picture

I think they'll definitely be improved, may even get to 9-3 with that schedule.  But as others have mentioned, let's see that defense against B1G offenses.  Also, it'll be interesting to see if they're actually able to limit Denard's touches (I'm going to guess no) so he takes less hits.

Just so everyone knows Robinson just turned 21.

Buy the man a poison drink. IT"S MILLER TIME!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Bucks's picture

BAH! Every Saturday is "Smoker BBQ grill" duty. Have it down like clockwork. Get a Sat w/o people coming around and I'm all off my timing. Here's hoping I am ready in under an hour!

 

Bucks - 36

Some Animal Team - 10

Buckeyejason's picture

The good thing is Michigan won't have Denard when their big time recruiting class settles in.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Come on score here SDSU!

BUCKEYES BABY!

The Buck Guy's picture

Wow. Amazing that little Smith was able to run right through the SDSU D like that. SDSU tackles as badly as any team I've seen this year (which says a lot after last Saturday).

Go Bucks!!!!

njc2o's picture

it's amazing how much playmaking ability ND has, but they continually find some way to mess it up.

The Buck Guy's picture

Yeah. The Domers continue to amaze me with their ability to screw the pooch.

Go Bucks!!!!

The Buck Guy's picture

I can't believe that anybody thought that was a fumble by the SDSU QB. His arm was clearly going forward and the ball knocked out during the pass.  It should not have had to go to the replay booth.  Are those scUM offials or what?

Go Bucks!!!!
