    Go Blue Michigan Wolverines Thread....

    I really feel good about this revamped team. Denard Robinson seems to have all things clicking on offense and the only thing I see lacking is our defensive secondary. Im looking forward to the next few games which SHOULD be easy wins until our matchup against the Spartys. Its funny to see the top three guys on the Heisman watch right now all have ties to Michigan.
    1. Denard Robinson - current player
    2. Terrell Pryor - picked OSU over Michigan when committing
    3. Ryan Mallet - transferred out of Michigan

    I am as excited about this team as I have been in a long time, after a few grueling seasons it seem we may have something here. I also like the fact that we have Devin Gardner sitting back there to devolop right after the "shoelace" era.

    I still feel like Rich Rod is in the hotseat and he must beat OSU and/or win a bowl game
    to keep his job this season.

    LETS GO BLUE!!!!

    LETS GO BLUE!!!

    We need to see how the defense performs against the power running teams in the Big 10. They should start 6-0 which qualifies them for the bowl but then the tough part of the schedule begins against, you guessed it, power running offenses.

    I don't see a victory over Ohio State this year. They need another year to develop the defense and the game is in Columbus. I do think they win 8 games and RichRod should be given another year if they do. It's easy to see that his offense is completely installed with a QB that can run it and just how lethal it is.

    "Shoelace" may have single handedly saved Rich Rod's job...


    "Shoelace" currently has more yards from scrimmage than 87 division-1 schools.... amazing statistic..

    Shoelace has been amazing, but it's not just him. Our OL looks very strong. The tackle positions aren't great, but we got 2 very good prospects in Taylor Lewan (aka Jake Long 2.0) and Michael Schoefield waiting in the wings, and Martvavious Odoms and Roy Roundtree have been good receving options (Darryl Stonum has also been solid). Still need a big play threat at RB.

    Defense still needs work. Mike Martin is the best NT in the Big 10, Craig Roh is, and will continue to develop, into a beast. Jonas Mouton is having a good senior year. Ryan Van Bergan is solid. Obi Ezeh well... kind of sucks. CBs have looked ok, but still scare me, and Cam Gordon has given up some big plays at safety (willing to let that slide though cause he's a RS Frosh who was a WR last year that thought he'd be a LB not a FS so he's learning on the fly).

    Oh and we need a kicker.

    Definitely, especially when we start facing some tougher defenses and it will be harder to get into the endzone...We cannot afford to be missing kicks at all.

    I think our run defense will be ok, but the way Crist picked us apart scares me when we face someone better than ND.

    eh... our pass D was pretty good for the most part. All 3 Big plays came from a RS Freshmen FS who recruited as a WR and expected to play LB this year. Cam Gordon is still learning. Brian Kelly's offense allows QBs to find an open man.

    Hey Mich...always remember..the best move is alot of times the one you don't make.
    You better give RichRod more of a chance...
    I'm glad he is not at Bama and we got Saban,but look at what you guys almost went
    after...Les "Buggs Bunny" Miles.

    The OL will be hurting next season because David Molk moves on to the NFL. Hopefully Miami drafts him because he is a difference maker. After getting injured last year, the OL fell apart.

    I can't believe they can't find a student from the Soccer Club that would be willing to play football. 1-5 on FGs is pathetic.
