2013 Michigan Football
Football Study Hall has posted two rankings of offensive and defensive lines for all 2013 teams according to their advanced statistics.
First, the bad news: offensive line:
What this means:
- Our offensive line generated 83.2 yards per game (adjusted for opponent). That was not good.
- On standard downs, the OL generated 2.19 yards per carry. Worse than not good.
- On passing downs, the OL generated 2.80 yards per carry. Slightly less not good.
- 34.5% of the time, the OL"did its job" and produced at least five yards for the runner.
- 52% of the time, the OL got a 1st down or touchdown on 3rd and 2 or less or 4th and 2 or less (or 1st or 2nd and goal from the 2 or less). Not good.
- 29.9% of the time, the runner was tackled behind the line of scrimmage. God awful.
Silver lining: Doug Nussmeier's Alabama offense was awesome at running the ball.
The defensive line was better:
What this means:
- We were a decent DL (45th) overall, bad on standard downs (73rd), short yardage downs (82nd), and getting negative plays (76th) but good on passing downs (26th).
Silver lining: Jake Ryan is back next year.
Nothing we didn't know, I suppose, but interesting to see nonetheless.
The post isn't very specific but apparently changes have been made to personnel and blocking schemes as well. That's it. Let the discussion commence.
Edit: There are no other details to post. This is literally everything that Rivals posted.
Here's the intro from Under the Lights 2 - not much different other than Woodson instead of Lloyd in the first and Brady to Gardner instead of Griese to Gardner.
Didn't see this posted and this would be good for people coming in from out of town.
New for 2013 is Welcoming Our Wolverines (W.O.W.) Fridays. There will be a member of Guest Services located in front of Gate 10 on Fridays before home games. The biggest attraction is for a $10 fee, you can tour Michigan Stadium and Crisler Center.

EDIT: difference from the tours offered through the Alumni Association is they are much more detailed. You also get to walk the tunnel, actually get on the field, visit the locker room, visit the Jack Roth Stadium Club, see the Heisman Trophy and try on a helmet/pads. The $10 Fri tour only says you will have an opportunity to take pics inside the stadium. http://alumni.umich.edu/connect/event/big-house-tours
VERY cool 3D Michigan Football Poster for 2013 that has the schedule on it as well.
Oh...and you can get one here for $10:
Its slow and I'm itching for the season...
Looking at the schedule, there will be 2 bye weeks this year (weekends of 9/28 and 10/26) so I've decided to head South and attend my 1st SEC game - LSU @ Georgia the first bye week.
What do you have planned for the bye weeks?
