Posted on Sat, Oct 31, 2009 : 8:20 p.m. Stevie Brown discusses the Michigan loss to Illinois By Michael Rothstein Comments jdub Tue, Nov 3, 2009 : 9:08 p.m. Amen J rodz! Rich Rod has the program going in the right direction, given the DRASTIC changes that were made. This takes time. Rodriguez himself told the media he only has about 75% of the offense in place. Additionally, we are lacking a "complete" defense...you can't expect 19 yr old freshmen to be able to step in and play strong defense in a league like the Big Ten. A couple of years and the Maize and Blue will be back where they rightfully belong. J rodz Sun, Nov 1, 2009 : 8:10 p.m. all you fair weather fans..i am telling ya. Pull yourselves up by the bootstraps and stop whining. This is a complete program rebuild and 5 years is what it will take to have enough depth at skill positions (where injuries like that of Molk won't hurt you) and get players accustomed to the Spread. You wonder why we are so bad on defense? Look at the last 4 years recruiting at those positions (yes under Carr, because RR defensive recruits are being redshirted) and you will see how we had no depth whatsoever because either people left or turned out to be busts. Tired of lame accusations about our program and where it should be year 2 in RR's tenure.

"I hate my coach", "what am i doing here in ann arbor", "Im never going to get to the NFL now", azwolverine Sat, Oct 31, 2009 : 8:08 p.m. I feel bad for every player that came here to play for Michigan under the pretext of playing for the traditions laid down by Bo and built upon by Moeller and Carr. They deserve better.
