Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan -- Northwestern Game

Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — Northwestern Game

This is a small sample of MaizeMan’s post on the message board.

As usual, I have already finished watching the tape a couple of times. I frequently post my thoughts after watching the tape, but to be honest this game in many ways was just like the others since the ND game. I think at this point, we have a pretty good idea of what this team is all about, in many ways, it has its own identity.

I don’t necessarily think it is the identity the coaches envisioned nor do I think it will be vision in the future, but this team is very flawed and the only way it wins is the way it won on Sat, by sure determination and grit. Its ugly, but UM did win this game. If I was a NW fan I would be talking about all the missed opportunities, all the drops, just like most UM fans do after a loss.

UM simply needed this game, it not just for confidence sake. There is always a difference between playing hard and playing hard with the confidence that will result in a win. Sometimes there is a fine line there, but as much as we all complained about Carr in his later years, his teams always seem to have that mental toughness or confidence late in games.

This team has not shown that “confidence” and hopefully this win will strengthen our chances next week against a pretty good Iowa team or lets say a Iowa team that seems to be getting better every week.

I choose to just enjoy this win and let the kids enjoy the win, they have been beat up enough.
