I live for this. You guys rolled as expect in your opener, and I hope you guys stay healthy the whole season. What fun is it if we have back ups plaing in one of the best rivalry games there is.


Mi_Mom, I wouldn't worry, maybe this season is bad but in the long run Michigan will do well with the spread offense in the big ten. Think of what the wolverine's lost their starting QB starting Rb top Lt. thats alot to lose and still be a top team.

It was a better game the 4th quarter. I thought they might pull it out. I admit watching the game is frustrating because it's different then their previous types of ball play. I knew this would be a sort of 'rebuilding' year if you will, due to the team changes and player changes as well. Add the new coach and you've got to come up with a whole new recipe that works.

Well my team the Nevada Wolfpack took care of Grambling State as it should. Held them to 5 rushing yards while we surprising gained 453 yards on the ground considering we have two great quarterbacks.

What was that? I mean how bad is the ACC where their two top teams get beat. I dont know which was worse VT losing to ECU and unranked team or Bama just blowing Clemson out of the water. Have the thunder and lightning Clemson duo shown up yet?


I watched most of the Illinois Mizzu game. I guess the defenses decided to stay home. You can tell Juice was fired up, he missed some wide open guys. Chase Daniel looked good.


Now as far as my Longhorns I think they showed Florida Atlantic that we are a bit tough. Looked like some BS late hits on Colt McCoy, who ran for over 100 yards. Though we need a RB to step up if we want any kind of chance to beat OU or Tech.

I think Alabama is going to surprise a lot of people this year. They are a very good team this year. As much as I HATE Nick Saban and find him to be a jerk, he's one heck of a football coach.

Alabama looked strong and Clemson just didn't come to play, as they tend to do at times. That is the recipe for a bad game.

Regarding "thunder and lightning:" no matter how good you are, if the line doesn't block, you're out of luck. On top of that, if the coaches don't figure out a way to get you the ball, that's another problem. It was not the fault of the backs.
