Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan -- UM Football Thoughts

Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — UM Football Thoughts

Here is a small sample of MaizeMan’s post on the message board. To read the entire message please visit the message board.

1) We are 5-0. The Minnesota game went about as I expected in terms of UM really trying to simplify things and run a power running game. Results were mixed and at this point the big question to me is how dedicated and how patient they are going to be when things gets tough in the next few weeks. My hope is they keep at it because I think long-term its the only way UM succeeds.

2) I felt great for Chris Bryant, the stuff he has gone through there have been times I have been convinced he would eventually transfer, but he stuck with it and now may get rewarded by being mainstay on OL for the next few years. Did he play great? Not really, but you could see him progressing quickly from here.

4) Gardner was much better (no TO’s), but he needs to go back to work on Monday and continue to emphasize getting rid of ball. He still held the ball a second too late and many times the result, even when complete was a WR who had to adjust and make a very good catch.

7) Anyone else surprised by the lack of contribution from Gallon. Chesson as I mentioned is getting better every week and when watching the tape Chesson was open deep on almost every pass play and Gardner chose to either throw to Funchess (not a bad decision) or throw short. But Chesson I think is going to develop into that impact WR and remember before Darboh was hurt, Darboh was even better than Chsesson.

8) A couple yrs ago, I remember UM going to Penn State and it was THEE most important game, but for a very different reason, it was probably RR’s last chance, now UM goes to Penn State and this game is the pivotal game of this season, a game we should win, but a game we are going to have to improve on those aspects listed above to win.

See you in Monday Night Chat tonight at 8:00pm Eastern time.
