well B.J Raymond had himself a game. 32 points and 7 3's. Auburn looked like they forgot the Raymond was even playing. You would think they might have learned from last year. This game was very far apart early in the second, but the game got to within 3 points, but then the Muskies pulled away with one. They played bad down the stretch, but i guess they'll take a win.

There probally shoudnt be a question mark in the title, because it's not really a question. In the Michigan Spring game, the new QB threw 4 pics and fumbled the ball 2 times. If you are a Michigan fan it might be time to panic.
Lets see the first problem is QB. One of the biggest mistakes i have seen this year was letting Mallet transfer to Arkansas. He was a good developing QB who looked pretty good this season, as a rookie. Michigan lost the recruting battle with Ohio State for 5 star QB Terrelle Pryor. This all can be faulted to new coach, Rich Rodriguez, which brings me to my next problem.
Hiring Rich Rodriguez might have seemed like a good plan at the time but it has majorly back fired since then. Rodriguez let Mallet transfer thinking that he wouldnt fit the system right. He also has brought all of his Problems from West Virginia into Ann Arbor. The worst problem is that he just doesnt listen to his players and they dont like him much either. He said that he didnt care what the players though, and they ussualy werent going to have any input on his decisions. Junior OL Justin Boren announced that he was leaving Michigan. He was quoted saying," Since coach Lloyd Carr left the erosion of family values is evident".
I think that this next year is going to be a reck for Michigan. They won't make a bowl game and this year is not a rebuilding year. If you want to go ahead and call this a "rebuilding" year then there is going to be alot of rebuilding years ahead with Rodriguez ahead of the team.

With the seconds windidng down in the Super Bowl Brady launched up a pass downfield and it was swatted down. Thats when i knew it was over. Me and my dad got up and started our long walk out of the stadium, with chants of 18-1 coming all around us. That is how the 07 season ended. Now its time for a new season, new hope for that 4th super bowl ring.
This off-season we have lost some key members of our defense, most notably Asante Samuel. But like always Bill Belichiek is regrouping the troups. He is adding some older talent, smart players and veteran players that know what they are doing. So far to help tape up our secondary he has added Fernando Bryant and Jason Webster at corner. These might not be two marque players but they are two good role players.
To add to the addition of thse two corners, we have resigned Tedy Bruschi, who might be aging but will keep our defense lookin good with some more veteran leadership. A set back is the loss of Rosevelt Colvin, when Colvin was lost for the season our defense started to look horrible. Even though this is a huge setback for the Pat's D, one positive is it opened up a little cap room for the Pats.
Our offense is still lookin very good this season. Our main loss is Donte Stallworth, who left to the Browns. Donte Stallworth gave us a lot of speed and was amazing after the catch. But we resigned Randy Moss, which will keep our receving coor in tip top shape, and it also keeps Tom Brady happy. We also resigned Jabar Gaffney. Gaffney was a very good player in our offense and showed signifigant improvment throughout the year. We also still have Wes Welker, who led the league in receptions last year with 112 receptions.
I think the Patriots are set up for a pretty good season. I think we have two other contenders in the AFC East, the Jets and the Bills. The Jets are the team that scares me the most because of there major offseasons addition, but my prediction is for the Pats to win the AFC East. We have a weak out of Division Schedule, Which includes such powers as the Rams, 49ers, Cardinals, Raiders, Broncos, Chiefs. The only real hard teams we have to play though are the Colts, Chargers, and Sehawks. I think best case senario is 15-1, worst case 11-5.
