The Big 10 Bloooooooows!Better to come out crisp put it away early & then show what needs work than to be Sparty or Purdue. Holla boys seemed ready. Got 3 months for Urbs & Co to coach up da yutes. They'll be aweite.My fear is the same: undefeated vs SEC. The Bucks are a year or 2 away.

Who is #2 on the RT depth chart? Dodson? If so, any reports on how he looks in practice? For what it's worth I'm not giving Braxton the benefit of the doubt on the deep touchdown - - if it was a well-timed, back shoulder pass down the sideline of course but that was a late pass in the midddle of the field - - and it's not like it was well timed where the receiver turned around and the ball was there, he had to wait on it.

Part of the O'Line problems...(as a unit I thought they got pushed around and abused most of the game)...was having Linsley out of the game after 17 snaps at center, and Boren in there the rest of the way.Speaking of Warinner, though, Meyer credited him with devising the two 2-point conversion plays...and speaking of them...I thought they were maybe the most interesting aspect to the game. Clearly there was a purpose to showing them on the season's first two TD's against an overmatched opponent on national TV. Some argue you should save that stuff for a more critical game or moment. Others, that it gives opponents something to worry about and gameplan for...blah, blah.Whether it turns out to be a smart coaching move remains to be seen...if they run something different (or the same) out of the same set later on...and if it works. What's fun is that they ran two completely different plays...one to the extreme right...the other to the extreme left...out of the exact same look. Someone(?) put both 2-pointers up on YouTube here...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxFx6NlZ9rMSo...want to prepare to stop one...we'll run the other one...or a third option you haven't seen yet...Gameplan your little hearts out, Michigan. Notice that the first team offensive line was in there on both. Notice they had a receiver (TE?) out wide right, so Guiton would have had a pass option should that guy's defender have closed on the ball-carrierLike I said...smart? We'll see later. I just love the creativity and innovation, if that's what it is...We've had a decade of predictability. I love this stuff.Edit: a media member asked Meyer afterwards about the 2-point play: "They call that the swinging gate. What do you call it?"Meyer: "Oh, magic"

YahooFanChicago wrote:Furls, thanks for the info on the RT position...doesn't sound like we have many realistic plan B options if Decker doesn't step it up. I guess they can help with blocking schemes and help from the running back and RG.I agree with what every one is saying about Bosa as well...true freshman, first game and he looked damn good. Also, seeing him standing next to Spence and he looked giant, he looked much bigger than Spence-- I was surprised by that. He also looked very quick though.
