Anytime this offense gets going Borges will find a way to undermine it... law of nature
Michigan - Iowa Game Thread
Come on O. At least get in Gibbons range.
Nice mix of blitz and coverage. couple nice cb blitzes there
Get gallon going and this is over
Damn. Had him.
This game is about 2 Funches drops from being a different game
Borges's best play call of the day even though it didn't work
Had him. Easy td. Make a play Gardner
You have to stretch the field at some point.
Play action works on 1st down...not on second after getting nothing on 1st. Just need to hit that pass.
that I'm excited when the defense is on the field? I cringe whenever we have the ball.
Now that was a bad play
Come on now ..... Holymshit
Funchess will need to try to add some speed going forward
Al even becomes predictable when he starts doing things that work.
WOOOOO! A 3rd and long conversion. That feels good.
Way to lead with the shoulder...
Crossing routes right into each other
Well, at least our pass blocking looks better this drive.
We picked up a blitz and lookie lookie
Way to pick up the blitz young man! NICE!
Yes blitz pickup.
Here come the power I runs...
Finches jump bal .. Watch
What a difference good pass pro makes for Devin's accuracy. Wow
Not just accuracy, he's even more dangerous scrambling when he can pick his holes rather than just run for dear life with 3 guys in his face
getting some stuff done
It took our backs 11 weeks to cut block a blitzing lb.
You call plays like old people fuck. You know that Private Borges? Move it! Move it! Private Borges whatever you do don't fall out of the OC booth! That would break my fucking heart!
And actually score before the half instead of giving up a score???
Here it comes...I just pray Gardner doesn't get killed and fumble.
Glen Mason just had a major stutter
I missed the kickoff. Who got the ball first?
Please don't do it!!
That was pretty!
Great audible by Gardner.
Our only play from that formation. Thank God it worked.
Why can't we run some inside zone stuff from it. You can run that bubble screen action as well. Mind bottling.
I knew that speed option was coming when he checked to Pistol. Glad it worked.
Great minds think alike my friend. Yours probably greater than mine, though.
No turnovers ... Points ... Don't get greedy
So if Hoke has a headset on...who is calling these plays this drive? That might explain it.
why does # 41 continue to trot out there for kick coverages and returns every week? i see this walkon scrub pulling a swayze every single snap yet hes still out there. 5'7" 175lb rudy should not be constant disappearing act and still get reps. i dont care how "hard" he works and how much "effort" he puts forth during the week to "earn" a spot on hokes special team units, the dude gets embarassed like a child every snap, forget about actually making plays. not a perfect example or microcosm of why UM looks like they do on a weekly basis, but close enough. and whoever mentioned courtney avery in earlier post - dont worry, hes only got 1-2 games left....real nice kid who reps UM well and tried hard and puts out effort, but unfortunately hes just not very athletic and not impact player. hopefully some of these young hyped recruits can play fast and violent and smart next year ...safety is supposed to be an impact position where elite athletes make game changings plays, not a stop gap average joe you just hope does not miss his assignment. hopeful for future of UM program but elite athletes who consistently show up and ball out win conference and national titles and this team is at least year or two away from approaching that type of roster. in the interim, please play either starters or athletic backups on ST....if its truly equal 1/3 of the game as hoke insists, then walkons with zero tackles and slow unathletic backup RBs should never touch the field
Standard pitch option is from rich rod days. Got it Glenn
