NOVEMBER 2021 THE WOLVERINE 5   FROM OUR READERS The women's team also has a lot of size and should be real good. It will be a fun year at Crisler. maizeragePaul On Michigan hockey ascending to No. 1 nationally … • Yes, it is well deserved. What a time to be a Michigan fan. Undefeated football team, preseason top-6 basketball and coming off of a Big Ten title, No. 1 hockey, great baseball and softball, and, as always, the non-revenue sports are outstanding. pestkan • No. 6 in football, No. 6 in hoops, No. 1 in hockey. Let's get three Final Fours and some natties! CtBlue03 • Maybe even MORE than our talented and deep basketball team, this hockey team is LOADED. BlueBlood Down Under • This may be unprecedented to have hockey, football and hoops all ranked so high at once. Maybe the fall of 1992 when we were coming off a Frozen Four and Final Four appearance and were on our way to winning the Big Ten and the Rose Bowl? andrewhfine On U-M football's hot start … • I really give [head coach Jim] Harbaugh credit for his preseason coaching overall, moves that have been a critical catalyst for the spirit that is so evident from this team. There is a uniqueness about the chem- istry we are seeing this year among the coaches and players, as well as between the two groups. While these traits will be severely tested in the coming weeks, I think that there is a great foundation across players and coaches for this season and those to come! malthus10 • Coach [offensive line coach Sherrone] Moore and [running backs coach Mike] Hart have been killing it. To be honest, I think some of us owe Coach Moore an apology, including me. I didn't believe that there was any justification for him to be coaching the OL. I do understand that he played the position, but per his bio, Coach Moore has NO OL coaching experience as an analyst or coach. I give him his props. And I am GLAD that he proved me wrong. bis1976 • No reason we can't beat everyone on our schedule and play OSU close and hopefully win. That's where I am. 9-3? Is it probable? 10-2 is my worst-case scenario at this point. I feel there's no time like the present. Something about this team tells me it's slightly different. Whether it's double-digit wins or not, we will see. If there are no injuries, three losses would be disappointing but definitely not the end of the world. But my eyes tell me that we should be able to win every game except the last one. fdizzle69 • Age and depth on the OL & DL are massively huge. It's what made MSU competitive through the Mark Dantonio years. Redshirting is what creates cham- pionships. Jim is finally getting there. So often over the past six years we have had to play too many that were too young. It seems to be settling in now. Hopefully for the ongoing future too. calblue Be Heard!
