maybe the defense can make up for some of that. if they are as porous as last year, this team is in trouble. the back 7 will be just as important as the oline.
I'm okay with some zone read in the playbook (especially in goal line situations), but dear lord do not run that scheme 80% of the time. that shit may work over and over on BIG teams, but we saw what will happen when you play against elite defenses.
if he commits to ohio state that is automatic.
with Urban as coach
highly doubt Ohio State fights him on his case like Ole Miss did with those players. its all up to the NCAA.
Come on man.... We have seen him throw and run some this year. Not even close to being as electric as murray. No comparison.
not sure anyone is personally attacking borland, just his speed. you have to admit that he got left in the dust on quite a few plays. probably due to the achilles, but if he cannot physically keep up, he needs replaced (except for when we play michigan since they just try to slam it up the middle on every play). no position on this team should be safe. if you are not performing for whatever reason, they need to let someone else have a shot. hopefully borland will be completely healed by fall practice and can perform better. best players need to play.
Exactly. who is going to chance a first round (or a second round pick) on someone who may or may not play football. its not like they get to pick over again.
and (as painful as it is) we all remember how that turned out................
Sorry Sallee, but if you dont win your conference you dont deserve to be in the playoffs. I dont care who it is. Even if NW would have beaten us, they should have went to the playoffs over us since they beat us head to head.
i dont understand the reluctance to having the conference champs getting an auto bid. who cares if utah/ptt/northwestern won the championship and got in? they won the conference championship by beating another top ranked team. if pitt would have beaten clemson or NW would have beaten us, neither clemson or OSU would have been able to make a case to get in over those teams. it was a head to head matchup on the field which is where it should be. if you want a guaranteed spot in the playoff, win your conference. get rid of the inherent bias in the current selection process.
Here is another gem of a hit job. Coming fast and furious today.
"Superstar" ???? Just no.
Yes reverting back to that style of offense would be a problem. That type of offense does not work against elite defenses. Running up the numbers against rutgers, indiana, michigan, etc. does not m ean anything when we're playing Clemson or Bama.
we are gong for two after every touchdown now. no need.
cant see hurts or winbush coming here as backups. if they came here and started, tate would leave. if tate is not ready after 2 years of learning the system, it would be time to move on anyway.
at least stay long enough to crush Hairbaugh into the dust and send him limping back to the NFL. if Day beats Hairbaugh next season, look out. the scum fans will riot and take out the city's only Dollar General.
holy shit they are setting themselves up for a hard fall when we win the BIG in basketball. not sure where they go from there. i saw the other day they were pumping up their Director's Cup rankings, but were also resigned to Sanford winning it again. Pure Michigan........
mgo blog was reporting that Bob Stoops had scheduled an interview for the job a few minutes before the Day contract information broke. it's actually pretty good reading. they were pretty upset that Urban could step down and we could go out and pull Bob Stoops within hours. If Day beats Harbaugh next November, not sure they wont riot in AA.
agree, but how much longer will marotti stay now that urban is gone?
doesnt matter. if you schedule a team like citadel 3 times in the nonconference, but get blown out by rutgers, purdue, illinois, etc.. you still wont make it in the playoff. point is, dont get blown out by a mid tier school.
24/7 Sports is reporting that Urban is stepping down after the season and that Gene Smith has been seen at an all you can eat buffet with someone named Bert...........................
would be a lot of empty trophy cases if you do away with divisions and conference championship games. only one team would have a trophy at the end of the year...............
couldnt disagree more. the shine off of jail sexing michigan made this season. the rest is gravy.
one big fish is lurking out there for a HC job.............Bert
