Discuss all week 7 games.

USF/WVU Thursday night, always an interesting game.

Illinois/Michigan State, Mizzou/TAMU, BC/FSU and Minnesota/Purdue are the early games. Texas/Nebraska, Iowa/Michigan, Arkansas/Auburn and Cal/USC are the afternoon match ups. Ohio State/Wisconsin, Miss St/UF and Ole Miss/Bama are the night games. Oregon State plays at Washington super late.

Not a great week of football, but there's a few games in there I want to see. Ohio State obviously has a huge game, Auburn has a chance to hop some teams with an impressive win. Nebraska and Texas isn't as big as it should be thanks to Texas' losses.

Doesn't help, but if this was a top 10 matchup it'd be a huge game. Also sets Nebraska up to make it the whole way to their conference title game without playing a ranked team.

Blah I hate 11:00 starts, way to early for me. I think A&M beats Missouri pretty easily, They can shutdown Missouri's running game with not much effort, and Blaine Gabbert just doesn't look to be in sync with his Receiving core, you take away Michael Egnew and TJ Moe and Gabbert doesn't know what to do, he sees they're covered and he'll get happy feet besides checking the ball down and can totally screw up a play. Physically the guy has the skills to be a 1st round selection in the Draft, but mentally he has a long ways to go.

Missouri's defense has looked great in the first five weeks but lets face it, they haven't played anyone. I am excited to see how they do against Johnson, Coach Steck got rid of the Umbrella style defense Missouri ran the last few years and is going to more of a man-to-man and it seems to suit Carl Gettis and Kevin Rutland much better. Aldon Smith will be out this game with a broken leg (not as bad as you think, could be back against Oklahoma) but Missouri has more than enough talent at Defensive End to create pressure, starting with Jacquies Smith who is on the other side and Michael Sam and Brad Madison who have done a nice job filling in for Aldon Smith.

Prediction: 27-17 Texas a&m

We will hold him to 8 yards and you will like it!

Seriously, I'm guessing he will eclipse it on his first run (probably first play) of the game. I'm fine with letting him have 9 yards on the day... :D

Plus, he will be the 2nd, after Adam Robinson runs for like 600 yards before Denard gains 9. Yea, it's gonna happen.

Fiiiiiine. Denard will just make it up on 2nd for a 3rd and 1 or 2.

I can already tell you how the game will start. Iowa will receive, whether by choice or Michigan deferring, return out to about the 24-27. First play will be a quick out to Reisner/DJK for 7 yards. 2nd down and 3 will be Adam Robinson running for 1 yard after not being able to hit a hole. 3rd down Stanzi will roll out and throw to a wide open Robinson/slot WR who will drop the first down. I will has a sad. But then we will punt and Michigan will fumble the return. So it has been written, so it will be done.

Aboooo. Well, still save your upset for them plz.

And I actually appreciate your expectations like those. It's much more refreshing than watching some Michigan fans predicting Iowa to score like 17 or 20 and hold Iowa to like <300 yards because "Iowa's offense isn't good."

But I essentially agree with your prediction. I'm going with Iowa 34-28, with it being 27-14 going into the 4th, Iowa scores first to make it 34-14 and then Michigan mounts a late charge with 2 TDs.

Yeah, we have not been the same since coach Nesbitt left. I was a senior his first season. Wish he would have been there the whole time I was in school. Being private and having the ability to recruit gives Rockhurst an advantage, but Hickman should be more competitive. We have great athletes and it is a huge school.

Early prediction for Iowa/Michigan. If Michigan isn't somehow up by at least 2 TD's at halftime (which isn't happening), the game is over, no matter how close it is at that point. In two and a half season, Rodriguez has shown absolutely zero ability to make adjustments throughout a game.

His offense is the absolute worst at trying to come from behind. When all the runs stop working and it's time to have a real QB, standing tall and throwing the ball, they fail.

I don't think it really even has anything to do with coming from behind (although I agree with that as well). He just can't adjust his gameplan at all, even when he can keep on running the ball. An example from last year. Michigan obviously lost their last 5 games straight.

vs Penn State-First half 19-10 Penn State
Second half-Michigan outscored 16-0

vs Illinois-First half 13-7 Michigan
Second half-Michigan outscored 31-0

vs Purdue-First half 24-10 Michigan
Second half-Michigan outscored 28-12

vs Wisconsin-First half 21-17 Wisconsin
Second Half-Michigan outscored 24-7

Michigan was either leading or within striking distance at the end of the first half in each of those game, then got blown away in the second half.

So can we put end to the Robinson/Martinez Heisman hopes this week?

Not enough mention of Cam Newton in this thread.


You should know that this is the official Michigan gameday thread by now.

Cam Newton with 4 games over 170 yards rushing this year, that is insane.

Yay, complete readjustment of the offense yet again.

On the plus side for Michigan, I believe it is much easier to implement the offense Harbaugh would bring. It's not like a Rich Rod offense that requires certain personnel.
