    For those who question my throw him under the bus comment, these are the folks I am directing my post to, as said above by KazLong. Maybe there is very little of this talk on this entire football board, but there are a share of fair-weather fans — somewhere outside this board — who actually think Frost should be fired. I knew this without even having to research it. Remember the fair-weather fans who wanted TO fired? Perhaps it was inappropriate that I brought it up here, but that is why I said what I said. Nothing else.
  2. What was actually said. I can’t open the 247 website.

    Frost is strong enough to just move forward. He did say it could get worst before it gets better. And there will be much better days. It also goes to show you how bad Riley left the program in.

    All teams have fair weather fans, including N’s. Maybe not so much here. But they are out there, as with any team.

    Alright folks, I am as disappointed as anyone else here. I didn’t see us starting 0 and 3 and losing like this. It goes to show you that many players have not embraced Frost’s system as much as we thought. The culture will be harder to change as we hoped. And the talent is not there yet for Frost’s system. But for anyone — I know you true fans don’t feel this way — who wants to throw Frost under the bus, this is only his third game — I would be much more concern if this was his third year like Riley. Who else would we get as a coach? If Frost can’t succeed, no one else likely will here. This is is going to be a more of a difficult transition than we thought. Frost needs to continue to recruit the right talent who can embrace his system and the new culture. There are some newcomers on the team who perhaps fully embrace what Frost is doing, but they are inexperienced and we have to be patient with them. I still have confidence that Frost will turn this around, but it may take three to four years to see it fully happen. Let’s not give up on him after three games. Let’s look at the long term.

    *** Official Michigan Game Thread ***

    If your lines on both sides of the ball are getting destroyed, tweaking won’t help. It’s way too premature for that. Frost needs to recruit the right players for this system that his players right now aren’t learning very well do to this very new system. Frost just doesn’t have the bodies right now.

    The learning curve is much harder than we thought. The lines on both sides don’t have the bodies right now for Frost’s system. I can’t diminish how bad this is, but there is nothing else I can do but keep supporting the team and Frost, and I hope he recruits the right players and figures this out.

    OT Bryce Benhart

    Hey guys, see the quote from Ryan Held — further down from the Benhart article — about Greg Bell’s speed. In addition to Frost, he is also saying Bell was running really tight, that he can run faster than he did against Colorado on that long gain. Held said he was running like a 95-year-old man. See his quote.
  9. Yes, the Corn piled up yardage against a pretty good and fast defense. And we had three 40-yard-plus plays against them. One was by Bell who didn’t run quite fast enough to take it to the house (I won’t start that debate again why he couldn’t.). There were two TDs we left off the board because of a lost fumble by Bell (I do believe N was driving to a touchdown.) and a dropped endzone pass to Morgan. The best team did not win the game. The good news is the two Michigan teams may not be any better than Colorado — at least as of right now. But there is plenty of football left. It is way too early to have a good idea how all these teams will stack up against us and because we still do not really know what us is.

    On that play and one other they were fasters. Don’t disagree. I’m just going by what Frost said that Bell can run a little faster. Hopefully we will see that as he gets looser during this season.

    Bell actually is extremely fast, according to Frost. But he said Bell felt tight because of first-game jitters, which slowed him down a little. He apparently is capable of running fast enough to have beaten those Buff’s DBs. Also his nerves perhaps contributed to that early fumble. Again, it’s a darn shame N couldn’t play the Akron game.

    That may be true, Mavric. I am just repeating what Frost has said fairly recently.

    According to Frost, Morgan is plenty fast. He was surprised that Morgan told him he wasn’t fast when he first arrived to Lincoln. But he can fly now.
  14. Quite difficult to predict without a game played by N.
