  • The 2010 Big 10 Thread

    New year, one where Michigan makes a bowl game!

  • #2
    Just getting the thread subscription for now. I will say Michigan needs to go at least 8-4 during the season for me to have any hope for RichRod. And one of those wins, IMO, MUST be Notre Dame, I think for obvious reasons.

      Michigan State is another must-win.

        If Michigan goes 9-3 but their three losses are Notre Dame, Michigan State, and Ohio State than I'm not confident Rod is a lock to be coach in 2011.

          I certainly agree. The reason I think ND is an absolute must win, gotta have it game, is it's going to be Brian Kelly's first year, bringing a new system, with a first year starter that's likely to miss spring practice. For two seasons now, and on into a third, we've been hearing/saying that "Rod just needs his players," and "it takes time to install the system," and "we had no experience." Now I don't really disagree with all that, but if Michigan loses to ND under Kelly, who's basically facing the same issues (possibly to a lesser degree, nothing could be as bad as Sherideath/Threet/Coner), or honestly even finishes with a worse record or lower in the polls, That's going to raise some massive questions about RichRod's future at Michigan.

          And of course I agree with PL. I'd also throw Penn State into the mix as well. Even though they might not be a "true" rival, they were a team Michigan had seemed almost incapable of losing to for so many years, and we've been massacred by them the last two seasons.

              Penn State's season might be long, but I think they'll end up winning 8 games. They'll have to rely on their running game a lot. The front 7 will be young, but could be very talented.

                From the last thread:

                It's never too early to think about 2010!!! I'll probably edit this when the 2010 thread is up, but I felt like looking ahead to next year. I'll finish the write-ups later. I got sleepy.

                1) Ohio State

                -Barring any unexpected junior declarements OSU will return practically everyone next year, with Kurt Coleman being the biggest loss. They will, and should be, the clear #1 next year.

                Key Losses: Thaddeus Gibson, DE- Kurt Coleman, S- Ray Small-PR, Austin Spitler-LB
                Top returners: Terrelle Pryor, QB- Cameron Heyward, DL, Brandon Saine, RB- Justin Boren, G

                2) Wisconsin

                -Wisconsin was a bit of a surprise team last year, and if John Clay returns they should be even better in 2010. Schofield and Graham were both key players in '09, but there should be enough talent to pick up the slack, particularly if Tolzein and Toon continue to improve. This pick is highly dependent upon Clay returning though.

                Key Losses: O'Brien Schofield, DE- Garrett Graham, TE- Chris Maragos, DB- Jaevery McFadden, LB
                Key Returners: John Clay, RB- John Moffit, G- Jay Valai, DB- Chris Borland, LB-Scott Tolzein, QB- Nick Toon, WR

                3) Iowa

                -Next up is Iowa, which loses quite a bit more than OSU and Wisconsin, but returns a fair amount as well. A few mediocre recruiting classes could inhibit their ability to make up the difference in 2010. The offensive line takes a big hit and the loss of Angerer and Edds hurts as well. If Clayborn declares, they dip more. The defense should be top notch again, but Stanzi will need to improve. Iowa and Wisconsin are real close to me, I could go either way.

                Key Losses: Dace Richardson, G- Bryan Bulaga, OT- Amari Spievey, CB-Tony Moeaki, TE- Rafael Eubanks, C- A.J. Edds, LB- Kyle Calloway, OT
                Key Returners: Adrian Clayborn, DE- Tyler Sash, S- Brett Greenwood, DB, Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, WR

                4) Penn State

                - Penn State loses a ton, and it'll be interested to see how quickly they can fill the gaps.

                Key Losses: Darryl Clark, QB- Navorro Bowman, LB - Jarred Odrick, DT- Sean Lee, LB- Dennis Landolt, OT- Josh Hull, LB
                Key Returners: Steve Wisniewski, C-Evan Royster, RB - Derek Moye, WR- Drew Astorino, DB- Jack Crawford, DL

                5) Michigan State

                -Michigan State was a big dissapointment in 2009, but outside of Blair White the core of the team is still in-tact. Kirk Cousins should improve in his 2nd year, and has the tools around him to make some noise. The defense is still a big question mark, so hopefully Greg Jones returns.

                Key Losses: Blair White, WR- Joel Nitchman, C- Trevor Anderson, DE- Jeremy Ware, CB
                Key Returners: Greg Jones, LB- Kirk Cousins, QB- Keshawn Martin, WR- Charlie Gantt, TE- Joel Foreman, G- Chris Rucker, CB

                6) Purdue

                Key Losses: Joey Elliot, QB- David Pender, CB- Brandon King, CB- Mike Neal, DT
                Key Returners: Robert Marve, QB- Ralph Bolden, RB- Keith Smith, WR- Ryan Kerrigan, DE- Kyle Adams

                7) Michigan

                Key Losses: Brandon Graham, DE- Donovan Warren, CB- Zoltan Mesko, P- Brandon Minor, RB, Stevie Brown, LB
                Key Returners- Tate Forcier, QB- Denard Robinson, QB- Roy Roundtree, WR- Ryan VanBergen, DT, Obi Ezeh, LB

                8) Minnesota

                Key Losses: Eric Decker, WR- Lee Campbell, LB- Traye Simmons, CB- Nick Tow-Arnett, TE
                Key Returners: Adam Weber, QB- Marquies Gray, QB- Duane Bennett- RB, Kim Royston, S- Kyle Theret, S

                9) Illinois

                Key Losses: Arrelious Benn, WR- Juice Williams, QB- Jon Asamoah, G
                Key Returners: Mikel LeShoure, RB- Clay Nurse, DL-Jason Ford, RB- Corey Liget, DL

                10) Northwestern

                Key Losses: Mike Kafka, QB- Correy Wootton-DE, Zeke Markshausen, WR- Sherrick McMannis, CB, Brad Phillips, S
                Key Returners: Vince Browne, DE- Quentin Davis, LB- Al Nutter, OL

                11) Indiana

                Key Losses: Jammie Kirlew, DE- Greg Middleton, DE- Ray Fisher, CB- Matt Mayberry, LB- Rodger Saffold, OT
                Key Returners: Tandon Doss, WR- Ben Chappell, QB- Demarlo Belcher, WR- Darius Willis, RB


                Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                  I still am a fervent believer that Tolzien is not good. I know he had a solid season in his first year starting, but I will never believe he makes good decisions to be a good QB. At least Americanzi when **** goes haywire, it's because he makes terrible throws, not terrible decisions.

                  Maybe it's just because I still can't get over Tolzien throwing 7 picks against my HS. Which was awesome btw.

                      Wisconsin is going to have Rose Bowl expectations and I'm not sure they can get there unless they can find someone to replace Schofield as a big time pass rusher and help hide some of our weaknesses in the secondary.

                          The real question is, will you still not cover the TE? It seems like a solid gameplan, I think it should be employed. ;)

                            As an Big Ten outsider looking in, it seems to me that the winner of the Iowa/Ohio State game will win the Big Ten. Not like that statement is going out on a limb much in predicting the Big Ten champ.

                              Martin doesn't suck. He's a monster.
