I agree it's a bad schedule...but what if they do lose 3 games? All the hype and none of the results. Much like the last two coaches. That has been Michigan football in a nut shell the last 10 years; "we'll be great just wait and see".
Wasn't Rodriguez going to be Tressel's worst nightmare too?
It sure looked like Coach Meyer was scared of him last year when his team curb stomped him in his own house 42-13. Michigan is once again getting setup for failure. Building up so much hype and expectations off so little substance. What if Michigan loses 3-4 games this season? What if they drop games to Ohio State and MSU?
The 2009 USC game felt a lot like 2005 Texas game. We had SO many opportunities to score touchdowns but instead settled for field goals.
Probably one of the most disappointing seasons in recent memory. Returning all those players and regressing on both sides of the ball. TP's ability to scramble really saved us from a bad year.
The only way we get a COY is if we underachieve for a few years and then we bounce back. Consistent success only guarantees you won't win it.
I read that it took Dan Gable 17 years to win B1G COY...and 17 straight titles. Kirk Ferentz claimed 4 of them during that period.
Chancellor was really teeing off on Zeke and getting nowhere except when he hit him without the ball after the play. Luckily he wasn't the only guy around or Zeke would have spun and scored. I think they were trying to do the "welcome to the NFL" moment and it didn't work out so well.
It's like releasing the kraken but scarier!
After the 2007 season I didn't think Tressel's offensive staff had the ability to build a national title level unit...especially on the line. LSU's defensive line ripped through us like a pack of lions attacking a water buffalo.
Connelly has Michigan #6...and Notre Dame #8...not taking him too seriously.
The Chargers need to sign him or trade his rights to someone who will. I'm sure a team would be willing to give up a bunch for him. Regardless of who's camp you're in neither party is helped by dragging this out further.
WMU's head coach who was on the staff stated that when Coach Tressel decided to go for it on 4th and 1 Tress said "this is the game". I think at that point they knew they were done, although are you really done when the score is 24-14?
Unfortunately this team was the start of the SEC love and the B1G sucks narrative for ESPN and others. Prior to that title game they were all buying stock in Ohio State.
Unfortunately I watched it multiple times. Came away that our staff largely gave up when they're initial game plan didn't work. It was a sickening day...
Michigan better make a drastic jump in talent and speed somehow if they're going to play for a title. Last season they were Iowa with a more famous head coach.
I'd say athletes in other sports are the ultimate all-around athletes because they combine a lot of the measured skills together. They may not be able to run as fast or jump as far but they can combine the skills into their respective sports.
There isn't an athlete in any other sport that could be close to Eaton in the Decathlon events. I too agree that the title of "Greatest Athlete" is subjective, however Track & Field is the best sport to measure the optimal performance of an athlete in each individual disipline.
Eaton is an amazing athlete and certainly can be in the argument as the greatest athlete in the world. The Decathlon is a very good test of almost all of the athletic qualities. Its really hard to compare track performances to athletes from other sports, because track is entirely optimal performance based at the most basic of athletic performances.
If you don't like it mute it...like I do commercials!
Now I HAVE to like Rome...
