It may be just the way it is written but the biggest problem I see is your wife doing it regardless of your opinion.
I understand. To each his or her own. I'm not rooting for Alabama any more than I can for UM or ND.
Troy for sure but these questions are unfair to everyone. I don't like ranking because circumstances are different with coaching philosophies as well as other factors
It's OK Randy.
I know what it means to us but I can't root for Alabama and I can't stand the way Mayfield has been this year.
A and lose their all time(against HS) record they so covet.
I think the difference is that they have a couple of other rivalries that some consider more important than us(MSU and ND) where as for us it's just UM. I'm reading a lot of screw OSU they want to make sure they beat MSU. That's where the above guy is coming from when he says we are more obsessed wit UM than UM is obsessed with us.
I may be wrong here but I just get the feeling from your fan base by reading comments that beating Sparty is a bigger deal than us now and is their true rivalry in their hearts.
OK Randy Marsh.
I became a fan of his ever since that day. I was really hoping JT would show the same for the UM QB that got hurt last year but he didn't. That was brought to my attention by a UM fan and I couldn't argue with it other than it wasn't Gardener that got hurt.
From those I talk to at the restaurant I get the feeling it's how I felt about Terry Bradshaw when he was a Steeler QB. He is a hall of famer but we didn't fear his arm like that Steeler defense or their Oline.
Beating UM keeps me happy even if we don't go to the playoff.
Look, when this all started I said do we want to risk throwing away a whole of half of football (like Wisconsin did with a better offensive line)by lining up like SOME(not you) have suggested and trying to smash mouth. JT needs to run to keep drives alive also. Obviously you don't get it and I'm tired of trying explain it to you. I take it for granted everyone reads all the threads where just run Dobbins and Weber 40 times and we win. I'll take the blame for not coming across TO YOU right.
You once again completely missed the point. I'm responding to all the people on here that JUST want to pound the ball to our RBs. We need to run JT because it is one of his strengths. Wisconsin is a very good power running team and they did nothing trying to do what they do best(Running). It's because UMs defense is too good to just line up and try to over power them. Wisconsin's two offensive TDS were passing plays and we need a good mix so as not to be as predictable as Wisconsin.
The alts look good. This is the only game as a preference that I wish both teams stick to tradition. Just something about those two helmets on the field together that adds to the game for me.
My whole point was that JT needs to run. I'm reading all week that the RBs need to pound it only.
The point went over your head. The point was pounding the with our RBs was the way to win. Not saying it couldn't work but Wilson and that Oline is a stronger running attack than ours and they struggled running. I think that's why JT needs to run the ball also as a added dimension. Taking out the QB stats is a way to compare is a better comparison of power running the RBs.
Most want Dobbins and Weber to pound it. Once you take JT's running stats and their QB's sacks out, Wisconsin is the better power run offense. I've watched both and there is no comparison. We win if JT plays like he did against PSU. If it's Iowa along with our DBs it's up in the air.
I don't think we can just pound it on the ground. Wisconsin gave up a big zero on offense (punt return TD)the first half trying that and they have a stronger running attack than us.
Although I think Hurst has been outstanding this year, the college evaluator for PFF is Josh Liskiewitz who is a UM alum and is very bias against us and for UM. At one point last year he had Elflein the 13th best center in the BIG. I think they limit our running with JT getting the most carries and yards and it will be up to JT's arm to move the ball regularly, especially early.
I see them forcing us into 4 FGs attempts and us hitting 3 and two TDs. 23-17.
Wouldn't it be hard to hit a player in the sternum with shoulder pads on that come down that far in front.
As part of a goodwill gesture, the UM football team detoured to Notre Dame on their way to the university of Chicago for a football game, to teach Notre Dame students the game of football because they didn't know how. In doing so scored 8 points and of course it's counted as an official win in their total. The original UM name was catholepistmiad in Detroit.
Just how hard is it to de-commit. Were you anxious about telling Georgia? Does it open a massive flood gate of recruiters that were quiet before that?
BOOM for ZAID. Welcome young man.
