Michigan Football Tidbits: MaizeMan Reports Some Stuff from the Alabama vs. Michigan Game

Here is the short version of the tidbits from MaizeMan’s post today. Must be a member to read the entire post on the message board. People need to start becoming a member of our site to get EXCLUSIVE football tidbits of your Wolverines. Also only some tidbits were used for each point so make sure to read the entire post on the message board.

After watching the game and then re-watching already on tape a couple of observations.

1) I tried to prepare everyone for this (although I honestly did not think it would be this bad). Alabama is going to win the NC again and despite those who just need to discount anything I say (I guess for personal reasons) and although most just hate Saban with a passion the guy can simply coach.

2) People need to lay off Brandon, amazing how people want it both ways, you cant be “leaders and best” and not play the best.

3) I also tried to explain to people during spring and afterwards that is most respects this team would be more of a transitional team than Hoke’s first team. Why? Simply because the gap between talent of “Martin’s and RVB class” and Hoke’s first recruiting class is not up to UM standards.

4) UM fans also need to understand that they just overestimate their own talent (it is what fans do). And they also have this need to find a scapegoat (in this case Borgess and Denard) when things do not go right.

Did we not tell everyone about Lewan? He had some issues in spring.

I will discuss more in GBMWolverine Monday Night Chat tomorrow, but I choose to defend and support the team especially when they need us the most.

Great thing about football we can discuss this stuff all over again next week.
