Second and third thoughts.

Beat N.C. State, baby. Turn those wolves into puppies!

Patchan= Torn bicep. Back next week.
NC State has some beasts on defense so we will have to have some mauling from the Oline for us to win. Morris better stop throwing to the little girl in the 3rd row if we have any chance of winning. That being said, our babies have a few games under their belts against some big Olines and could respond with a carjacking. I say Canes 23 NC State 13.

Conditioning is the #1 thing the Great Jimmy Johnson advised Coach Golden to fix.

Case in point, Phillip Dorsett plays on ST and O had over 180 yards received and runs on kickoff's and PR. He probably ran 4 miles in that game and was tackled a dozen times. He looked strong and fast in the 4th qtr and OT. Compare this to last year when Lamar Miller would routinely take himself out of games even during critical situations because he needed a breather.

Not to mention our OL is mauling people esp in the 4th qtr. I want to see Linder step up because Felciano is knocking heads around when he pulls

So true. I used to cringe when I saw our players hold up 4 fingers during Shannon's time. It was insanely stupid as they were always cramping, even in the second quarter. It's amazing how unrealistic those guys were.

BLH

Hassan

Your point on conditioning is well taken. Clearly this team is in better condition than years past.

However, I would just question your comment and not take as gospel that Lamar Miller "would routinely take himself out of games even during critical situations because he needed a breather."

Unless you can specifically cite sources or enumerate specific examples of when this happened, I am somewhat skeptical.

By no means am I saying that Miller was a perfect back, nor that he couldn't have been better conditioned, but this seems like a speculative stretch to me.

Up for the challege? It is worth 65m

Ohio_Cane

I'm pretty sure LM6 took himself out of a lot of games at times was to rest his shoulder because of pain he couldn't play through.

Yup.
I YTed the 2008 game against NCST, and we looked SORRY AS HELL!

And great points on Dorsett...

"Case in point, Phillip Dorsett plays on ST and O had over 180 yards received and runs on kickoff's and PR. He probably ran 4 miles in that game and was tackled a dozen times. He looked strong and fast in the 4th qtr and OT."

##I never looked at it that way.

Hassan


When I got here I would not even classify him in the top 50 percent of the team in conditioning
– Al Golden (football)
SOURCE: ESPN

I do not have time to research specifics but i recall many times driving the ball and Miller taking himself out of games and even announcers talking about it because of his lack of conditioning, his last year at UM he improved in that area thanks to AL Golden but he could have done much more if in the type of condition this year's team is.

Ohio_Cane

Manny - Good news. UM injury report lists LB Raphael Kirby as probable; LB Denzel Perryman still out

BLH

First of all, I thought we were talking about his last year. So you do acknowledge that he was in better condition. Please don't be offended, but no one's recall from games is reliable enough to make such a broad assertion. I happen to recall that Miller went down pretty easily unless he was running free, but I wouldn't put that out there as an absolute without being sure, or at least qualifying it as an opinion based on observation

I would agree that he would have benefitted from better conditioning, as would anybody. I am not a Miller apologist, my point is that when you make blanket statements like you did, don't expect them to go unchallenged. You put it out as fact, rather than opinion, and Ohio's explanation could be just as likely

Don't take his the wrong way, from what I read on here, you provide valuable content, I'm just not taking that type of statement as gospel fact. It is precisely because I take your comments seriously, and respect what you have to say, that I am responding to you.

Hassan


Ohio and BLH I am not sure what game you guys watch, LM6 was not taking himself out of games because his shoulder hurt, he lacked conditioning and this was clear and even discussed by coach Golden.

Ohio_Cane

Hassan, I know that Golden has said when he got here that LM6 wasn't in shape. At all.

However, it's not like U could make the distinction from watching TV whether he came out of the game because his shoulder hurt or was out of breath. Golden said numerous times since he left that there wasn't a day that went by where LM6's shoulder was healthy. He said it hurt him in games and he rarely practiced fully throughout the week.

Kehoe on Sileo - http://wqam.com/interviews

Hassan


He was def hurt as well Ohio, but many of us fans and people in the know was furious because this guy would always come out on key 3rd downs and when the team was driving. I am too busy to research the exact games but this happened quite a few times. Conditioning is now something we can count on rather then get beat by. Wait til Duke is 205 how vicious will that stiff arm be then.

BLH

I see you are entrenched in your opinion, so let me conclude by saying that my recollection of the reason he would come out on third downs on many occasions, was for blocking reasons on obvious passing downs.

But I'm not putting that out there as fact.

Pre83

Some great throwback pieces - for the old timers such as Fran and Harry Miller, or for anyone else that appreciates vintage images of the U from way back in the day...

Whoo HOOO i got tickets to the game!!!

Dan Sileo has a special 3 for $93 lower bowl.

BLH I am entrenched because not only did al golden mention it and Fisch but the announcers as well. Go look at the games they wanted to give him more carries but he basically could not handle the load. I am still a Miller fan but he is not on the level of Portis Mcgahee etc but he is fun to watch break those long runs

------------------------------------------

He ran the indoor season but not the outdoor. He was criticized by coach Golden although he had a big spring game for his conditioning, from May til August he worked hard to get into better condition, not tip top but improved from where he was the previous season.

Next comes the movie....

A key witness – "Victim 1" – against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has a book deal and will soon reveal his identity.

Ballantine Bantam Dell announced Thursday that "Silent No More: Victim #1's Fight for Justice Against Jerry Sandusky," is coming out Oct. 23. The memoir will be co-written by the victim's mother and psychologist.

Ohio i hope there will be over 50,000 fans...

UMike

I do recall many times in crunch situations or drives that Miller was not in the game..and not after a big hit. Obviously I don't know why, but most of he time it did not seem like he was hurting at all. I remember asking myself a few times "why isn't miller in there"...especially late in the game.

I HOPE WE HAVE A GOOD CROWD THIS SATURDAY.THIS TEAM NEEDS IT
