I am surprised not to hear 61-58 yapped about as reasons against TCU and Baylor.  You cannot be a championship team and give up that many points. A good offense, perhaps.  Team, bot a chance.

Looking forward to the good guys shutting down a second Heismann hopeful so that they get a chance at the third, and likely winner.

I seem to recall Ted Ginn Jr. having an adventure in fielding punts in the '05 *ichigan game.  Fortunately at that time, we did not have easy access to spewing hate.  I suspect that these folks would have been calling for TG's benching.  As an aside we need to really watch what and how we're talking if we expect to be able to recruit the next generation of Buckeye stars.

Nice adjustment by the coaching staff.  In single back formations, Navy was blitzing off the edge, when the good guys brought a guy in motion, they could run up the middle.  A good start against a team that may not lose for awhile.

That solo tackle by Antonio Smith in the *ichigan was one of the best special team plays you'll see.  Antonio fought through one or two wolves and grabbed the returner by the jersey and let him corkscrew himself into the ground.  If the returner gets away from Antonio it would have been a big return and could have have changed the game.  Musburger was impressed but did not call him by name.  BTW, Antonio is an engineering grad, which is uber tough given how much time football takes up.

Mr. Bacon should fact check before he makes unresearched remarks.

 

"I can’t recall any Michigan coach, even Bo, recruiting at this level. Michigan was not getting No. 1 tailbacks out of Virginia during that time.”

 

Bo actually recruited the number 1 tailback from Virginia in 1975, Russell Davis, who scored two touchdowns against the good guys in the Shoe in '76.  And to preclude any "well, he's no Derrick Green" chatter ....  that's correct, Davis was better, one of the top sprinters in VA he also put his 6'2" 220 frame over a 6'9" high jump bar which is less than a finger's length lower than our own Devon Smith.  

I guess when you're a best selling author you think folks will believe anything you say if it sounds good.
