it is very possible that we look back on MissSt as a blessing in disguise. It basically uncovered the truth about this team ... Our defense is a liability, and to have some possibility at 8+ wins we HAVE to be able to score some points and keep up with teams.
The MissSt game has "sped up" the pro...

I disagree. I think that with our run defense being what it is - at best average, at worst pourous - combined with the fact that we've got young QBs, it is CRUCIAL that we get out to a good start and an early lead.
The falling behind...

Yeah, we are not good up the gut. That said, it's not surprising...we knew that would be our weakness coming Into the season. Nobody thought that it would be this bad, though. Just gotta find a way to improve and on the Other side just put some points on the board to help the D through this transiti...

LSU has nothing to lose IMO...loss is expected. If we can somehow pull the upset, look out though....we may be turning a corner.
Main thing IMO is we gotta get one of these two road games. Then get home for a month for Kentucky and a couple games where we will have a significant motivation edge a...

Yep. Every program aspires to have those "year-in-year-out" expectations, but it's certainly not that much fun sometimes.

Would be a longshot, but there isn't a doubt in my mind that LSU should make every effort possible to go lure Fisher away. He is my #1 choice if the unlikely happened and Miles left/retired. He wasn't ready in 2004, unfortunately, so things just didn't work out given the circumstances. But I think h...

Well in their defense they did that with RichRod.
Hoke was an awful hire...no way no how does a mediocre San Diego St coach deserve the Michigan job. It was just an awful hire that made zero sense.

Lol, no. Michigan may very well not offer Miles, but I can guarantee you Michigan won't be hiring a coach that was fired at Indiana.
Although if Miles were to get the Michigan gig, I feel pretty confident Cam...

We shall see. Lsu's defense has some issues up the gut, but LSU may have found some offensive spark with Harris last night.
Lsu's certainly in a transitional year, this is the year to get us. While miss st came close to doing it, there haven't been many teams not named Bama over the last 10 year...

Why wouldn't he be? Despite one's opinion of Miles, he's a perfect fit at Michigan, and has the sparkling resume to go along with that "Michigan Man fit."
