SEC REPRESENTATIVE -- MISSISSIPPI STATE

NO TURNOVERS - NO TURNOVERS - NO TURNOVERS

WHAT MICHIGAN NEEDS TO SECURE THEIR UPSET BID

** THE POSSIBLE FINAL GAME AT MICHIGAN FOR COACH RODRIGUEZ **

Either way, I think we all can agree .. this won't end well :bandit:

It's been a very interesting, fun, frustrating, eye gouging, non-defensive, self medicated, denard filled season ... and say what you will or meant; Denard lived through the Big Ten season, so in that, some people were wrong! You have to give the kid props for his season -- record setting ..... and I hope he stays when Harbaugh takes over!

...with that said...

GO BLUE!

Well, I can think of many ways this ends well.

Michigan wins. RichRod is brought back, next year Michigan goes to the Rose Bowl and wins.

Michigan loses. RichRod is fired. Harbaugh comes in. Michigan does well during the Harbaugh era.

Michigan wins any bowl game is a happy ending. Should I continue?

Good stuff Benke. I know it gets to be a pain doing these every week. Thanks for doing them.

No problem. I only wish I didn't get so pissed off that I deleted all the other art work - lol.

Looking at the same **** in all of these got pretty boring and repetitive, but I had fun doing it ... mostly;)

Thanks for asking me!

Dude, that's the bigger picture... I am talking just the drama at hand.

Yeah, I can say it ends well like that too .... watch!

Michigan loses. RichRod is fired. Harbaugh takes a job in the NFL. UM hires Jerry Moore, who then gets fired after two years. UM hires Jon Jansen, who has success ... and fives years from now, we beat Ohio State :bandit:

...and your there to watch it!

See, it can end well as well as end very badly. So not everyone will agree. Not only that, if you are just talking about the game in general, I feel like we have a decent shot to win.

Yeah, I think we actually have a decent chance here... This team is good though.

Their losses, if I remember correctly, have only came against top ranked teams.

Alabama, LSU, Arkansas, and Auburn. If you have to lose 4 games, those are pretty good teams to do it against.

Yeah, their losses have all been to very good teams, as have most of ours but they were more competitive than us in their losses. I will say though that I feel like we match up well with this team. The time off should help players get back to 100% or close to it, and since a lot of our banged up players are key pieces that can't hurt.

Is the general consensus that this is RRod's last stand? I mean, he may already be out, but there's virtually no chance he remains if he drops this one, correct?

Bottom line, imo he's got to have it.

In my opinion Brandon has already made up his mind and Rodriguez is gone. His comments about Rodriguez have grown more and more detached over the last many weeks. The trouble is my opinion is informed by daydreaming :happy:

Mississippi State is not very good, they are overrated based on the classic 'they lost to good teams' principle.

Unfortunately, as we all know Michigan isn't very good either.

I'm pumped for this game, my first trip to the Gator Bowl !!

Should be a decent match-up, although MSU has a top 15 running game which makes me flashback to that Wisconsin game. Like was said, it will all come down to turnovers. If we can hang on to the ball, it should be an exciting close game. I don't see us stopping them too often though.

That looks like MSU from a few years back...lost to good teams, beat bad ones, and no in-between.

I think all opinions on rod's job security are worthless.

I think he sticks around.

Then why not back him now, rescue recruiting, and kill the drama?

Likely because the one guy's who opinion matters the most to David Brandon hasn't made up his mind yet. That's right -- I'm looking at you Buddha!
