that pretty much sums up Michigans season last year too.. They don't quite have the heart that other teams seem to have.. Henne has proved to be all but worthless. He's playing like a Sophomore.

In hindsight, I was too harsh on Henne. I apologize Chad.
Henne fits UM's scheme, a strong armed pocket passer that will carve up the D given time, but his slow targeting and immobility makes him very vunerable to serious pressure. He also seems to lack a winner's intensity and leadership, it's very possible that the Carr system has taken away his fire.
Be a believer, MgoBlue, Michigan can come back from this loss. I fully expect their O will, it's the D, Carr and his DC refuse to properly adjust and train? their men to play well versus wide sets and mobile QBs. It's very doable, but Carr and Co are frozen in time.
Michigan is one good new head coach and two recruiting classes away from being consistently in the elite, maybe 2010 and on.

Oh, I'm still a beliver.. Haven't gone out & gotten the Mich State garb yet.. LOL. Maybe that loss will be that swift kick in the ass that'll wake them up so they realize that this is it for those Seniors that stayed to win the big one. Now, that big one, is Ohio State. Hell, they could run the table now & still get a decent bowl bid..

You know - I've honestly been pondering the Big 10/11 and what could happen the rest of the way.
It's entirely possible (if lightning strikes Lloyd in the f*cking azz - Ron English too) that Michigan can create SERIOUS havoc in the Big 10/11.
They have the 2 really big games in November - Wisky and OSU. Plenty of time to get things back on track on D.
O seems to be ok - not top notch - but good enough to score points.
I've heard rumblings behind the scenes that Carr really didn't have a gameplan ready for AppSt - as he viewed it as a non-conf. cup cake game.
All it would take is Michigan beating Wisky or OSU to throw the Big 10/11 into a tizzy.
Hell - win both and we might be looking at a forced removal of the Big 10/11 from the BCS.

If that's true then I don't know how Carr can look at his players w/out being ashamed. App. St ain't no ****ing USC or LSU but you gotta have a game plan, especially the first game of the year. You only have the entire ****ing off season to prepare LOL.

It's on the JT The Brick show FYI, an excellent sports radio program if you guys ever want to listen.

well, as the "I heard's" go on...
today, I tuned into the local AM sports station & heard the last bit of a conversation about Carr getting canned & LSU's coach heading up there.. He's stated that Michigan is his dream job (played/graduated from there).. It's funny, Saban comes down here from Mich State, brings LSU to the promised land, & now, it's possible that Miles could bring LSU back again & then maybe head up to Ann Arbor.... Not sure LSU would let Mich offer enough $$$ though... It's just funny listening to all these LSU fans already sweating their asses off about loosing Miles...

M - I also heard Miles may not be on Schembechler's good side.

I think 'Less' Miles might actually do LSU some good. They wish they had Saban still to this day.

back to the drawing board......
