Seeing how Mattison was on Urban" Liar's" staff at Florida, and Mattison is freaking awesome. Does this give us a leg up on Meyer in game planning? Does Mattison have an inside look at how Urban will game plan? I think he will give us a leg up on Meyer and what Meyer will try to do with his offense. Any good team asks the DC how they would try to stop their own offense and I am sure Mattison has an in depth look at how Meyer will run his O and how to try to stop it.
Does having Mattison give us a leg up on Meyer
how many weeks to bama week?
We're doing this during active recruiting still. Imagine what this place gets like post NSD.
This school does compete in sports other than football.
I thought that was just an urban myth passed around to get peoples' minds off football the rest of the season.
THIS IS MICHIGAN FERGODSAKES!
I don't even want to think about what things will be like once hockey and basketball finish up (groan).
Days until Michigan beats the defending national champs in Dallas
We'll find out on November 24th, won't we?
Well if we know his plan and he knows our plan will he do what he thinks we'll do or will we do what we'll thinks we want him to do.. Or maybe we dont do anything and he does.. Or.. Or.. Or.. Who gives a shit.. Hoke Is the unaccounted variable baby!
The answer to all questions is: 42.
BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIPS???
will put more girls in the bed for recruits. If Meyer puts two in perhaps we'll use three. Should give us more than a leg up.
Yes if my math is correct, that would give us six legs up.
Where do I sign up?
Can we get a ban on using nicknames like Urban "Liar". It's about as clever as saying "cHoke" or "scUM" and I like to think we as Michigan fans better than that. To the content of your question, I would say Mattison only helps as much as having a good DC helps when facing a good offense. Very good offensive minds(like Borges or He who shall not be named in Tucson) constantly tinker with things and I bet Urban's 2012 offense with Ohio looks different enough from 07 Florida with Tebow that any minimial edge Mattison might give us with familiartiy is negated.
All that being said, Mattison is still awesome, we have Denard and it's time for us to beat the Buckeyes in Columbus and get a winning streak going.
Strongly second this notion, with the exceptions of referring to MSU as "Sparty" and OSU as "Ohio"
There used to be a rule that a certain nickname starting with the first syllable of Spartan and ending with the second syllable of Christina would earn a banhammer for n00bz and a vacation to Bolivia for established users. I can't find the documentation, but it may have passed into unspoken status at this point.
We know, down deep the other schools know, but when it's mentioned on forums like this the other schools use it as fuel to neg us. Oh well. Screw them. Lol
Stop saying lol. Your name is Phil so I assume you're not a teenaged girl.
That's my bit 'o snark for the day.
Can we use "Oscar" as a nickname for Meyer? I think that would serve a few purposes. It could be turned into a derogatory term such as "Man, that new Oregon uniform is so ugly, it's Oscar!" or "Oscar you, man!" This, I think, is the only acceptable nickname for that coach in Ohio...or maybe not.
"Oscar" is the navy's term for "man overboard"....
/Not sure this has anything to do with anything
I agree completely. "Ohio" and "Sparty" are fine, but obnoxious stuff like Urban "Liar," "Suckeyes," or "Dumbtonio" is no better than "scUM," "cHoke," or "Joke." We shouldn't sink to their level.
I'd say that Ohio and Sparty are more than fine, since one has a marching band spell out "Ohio" and the other named their mascot "Sparty". Those names are endorsed by their respective institutions.
Agree that Urban Liar, Douchetonio, DickRod, Brady Joke, Spartina, ect, ect, ect. are all signs of weak intelligence and need to be dealt a supersonic ticket to Bolivia.
I just cant get enough threads were Urban "Liar" is mentioned. Cause he's a big fat LIAR and we, the unbiased, impartial members of the Mgomafia, have outed his lying ass.
Cause he's a big fat stinky liar. And his pants are definitely on fire he's such a big,big liar.
Good lord we sound like petulant 3rd graders tattling on another kid at recess. Teacher...TEACHER...Urban took my recruit again. And he LIED teacher....he did. He sure did.....cause he's a liar.
The only reason I keep reading threads like this are for replies like this.
Negged for Urban Liar.
Little Trollish. Just tryin to have some fun at Urban's expense.
At 178 mgopoints, you should theoretically know the "lay of the land" here enough to figure out what is going on. You are actually quite fortunate. Posters have been negged a lot more than five points. One even got a million negative points (or was it "only" 100,000) from the mods for a Sparty reference that has been deemed unhealthy and non-kosher.
Anyway, consider your five point negging to be one of the least-expensive lessons you have ever learned. Your execution was terrible, but your premise has some merit. Mattison certainly helped inferior Notre Dame teams beat Michigan once or twice while he was there.
We'll just have to see if Mattison is any better than anyone else who has run the defense at Michigan when it comes to stopping the spread when it is executed by a team with very good personnel. I hope it works out that way.
Urban Liar. HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA. Whew. Seriously that is lame.
Wouldn't that work both ways, with Meyer knowing how Mattison game plans and countering Mattisons' plan to stop Meyer's plan?
He only ever listened to Jesus and Greg Mattison.
Urban Liar? But I thought his name was Urb... OHHHHHH I see what you did there! Clever!
hit the wall with it repeatedly. Until you pass out would be the best. Thanks.
no? And in answer to your question, maybe one play in seven.
I've always enjoyed the nickname suburban kroger.
I like Rural Kroger better myself
The OP thanks you for falling on the douche sword Mason Bilderberg, as you are so often apt to do...
Are you familiar with the term "vice versa?" If not, utilize Google or Wikipedia, and consider your mind pre-blown by what has clearly, unfathomably remained a foreign concept to you for such a lengthy period of time ( i.e., your entire life).
We don't take kindly to your "logic" 'round here.
Shut the hell up
I guess I'll throw this out there -
1. Talent (you gotta be able to play)
2. Coaching (you have to know how to use your talent)
3. Precedence (your tendencies as a player or coach)
4. Luck (sometimes you just get lucky)
Urban and Greg. They worked together, sure. I know that not all things are equal, but I will just throw this out there anyways. It didn't help Rocky Long much; less than one year removed from Coach Hoke did it? I would rate precedence (tendencies) a lot lower than talent and coaching. I included luck because it should be mentioned. I wouldn't put too much stock in the Mattison/Meyer connection. It might change a few plays for us and it might change a few plays for them, but I don't think it brings a decided schematic advantage for either of us.
