* Running back Devine Ozigbo said freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez looked good while participating in his second straight practice.

He seemed day-to-day by the end of last week, so I figured he'd sit versus Troy to be ready for Michigan.

I'd say if he is practicing he will be playing.

He did not practice at all last week

Ah, I was wrong then -- knew he wasn't practicing by Tuesday (which is the unofficial cut off point for game time at most schools) but thought he was day to day by Saturday.

he was said to be day to day to practice on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday

since Thursday is just a walk through, I assume if the kid doesn't practice on Wednesday at the VERY latest he will not be playing unless there's an emergency on Saturday.

I think for Michigan the game really depends on three things. Offensive line. Obvious. They need to be way better in pass protection and in a hurry.  Secondly- Harbaugh needs to unleash Patterson and use the pass to set up the run. IF he keeps trying to force a running game that isn't there this game will be closer than it needs to be. And last but not least- the defense. The defense has just been sluggish the first 3 weeks. Was really expecting so much more. They've started all 3 games off looking uninterested and lousy. I want to see them start out with an edge and play an entire game like their hair is on fire. They've played lousy, sloppy football for 3 weeks. They have the talent and ability to play so much better on defense.

here it is, from the Sporting News


pretty dumb what if imo. no way to really know. I'll be a homer an roll with Michigan just based off of that defense and what the starters on those two teams did at the next level in the NFL. That '97 Michigan defense was just filthy. Best in the country by far that year and they had maybe the best college defensive player of the last 25 years. Woodson was unreal. Future NFL Hall of Famer. That offensive line was ridiculous, maybe one of the best in recent CFB history. 4 of their 5 starters were drafted in the first 2 rounds. Tackle Jon Jansen and guard Maurice Williams were drafted in the 2nd round, and guard Steve Hutchinson and tackle Jeff Backus were drafted in the 1st round. All 4 of them had really solid pro careers as everyone of them played in the NFL for at least 10 seasons. Williams played 10 seasons and Backus played 12. Jansen made two All-Pro teams, and Hutchinson made All-Pro 7 times was on the All-Decade team for the 2000s and is a future Hall of Famer. That OL was beastly. Griese wasn't great but he was a solid QB, was drafted in the 3rd round and he played in the NFL for 12 seasons and started around 100 games. Scott Frost never sniffed an NFL field. Michigan also had a really good kicker that year. Jay Feely played in the NFL for 14 seasons, made a lot of big kicks in the NFL.

I just want to know who the idiot Nebraska player that said this about Charles Woodson was;

“Their best defensive player was a poor-tackling cornerback,” says former Cornhuskers middle linebacker Jay Foreman.

Charles Woodson a poor-tackler? Lol. Woodson is one of the best tackling cornerbacks this game has ever seen. He is a future NFL Hall of Famer. Who is this scrub from Nebraska? How dare this peasant open his mouth to speak the name of one of the all-time greats. Someone should slap this fool.

Patterson's efficiency has been great so far. Boy do I wish we had him last year.
As for the defense, the biggest development is how the DTs are improving. I didn't have high expectations for Kemp or Mone, but they are wildly outpacing those. They can be good enough. I'm thrilled at the idea of Solomon returning though. That'll be huge for this defense.

what ifs man.    there are handful of games from the 90s we'd all love to have seen.

MDot just reminded me that Frost actually hung around the NFL for six seasons (mostly as a Safety IIRC).  I have no recollection  (Browns, Packers, Jets I think).   I think he had an INT. I'm guessing he was a scout guy sharpening his pencils for coaching.

I won't defend Foreman's trolling remarks re: Woodson, but he was hardly a slouch of a MLB.   He didn't have the decorated NFL career of his father (Chuck) that's for sure, but I recall he played for some period (Texans/Bills maybe) (I don't watch pro football much at all and watched virtually none in 2000-2003 during law school).

There was plenty of solid talent on the two-way on that team that played for a long time on Sundays.  Defensively Ralph (ok career) and Mike (quite good) Brown, Mike Rucker, Kyle Vandenbosh, Grant Wistrom, Eric Warfield, Jason Peter.   A few other dudes hung around for a cup of coffee or typical 3 yr trips through the league, Carlos Polk, Eric Johnson, Steve Warren and Foreman.

Offensively:  definitely the weakest Sunday crop of their mid 90s run, still not bad, Ahman Green is the Packers all time leading rusher.   Correll Buckhalter RB, somehow lasted forever with the Eagles, I swear that guy had nine lives, he would take an option pitch or toss in college and run forward for nine yards and fall forward. What did the NFL see in him to let him play until 2010 and 3 knee surgeries?  Kris Brown kicked for a decade.  Dominic Raiola seemed to be the Lions Center for a long time, unless I'm misremembering.  Russ Hochstein played some OL, Sheldon Jackson had a cup of coffee.

just show up and Michigan wins this one.. UNL is too mistake prone.   And it should be expected.   UNL's gone from an options offense, to WCO, to a spread running game, to pro style to an RPO dominated offense.   Any wonder why this wouldn't lead to confusion and mistakes by players?   It's going to take time... more time than folks in Nebraska wanted to admit.

97 UNL beats 97 Michigan by 17... and it's not that close.
