As IU kept driving down the field, I got more and more pissed at UM's bend but don't break defense - CB's with such soft coverage.... and there you go, INT. That is why you play bend but don't break.
Still, it drives me crazy and I do hate it.
"break his leg" "break his leg?" What the fuck IU?
What????? Did you hear that in the crowd? I didn't catch that.
They're f*#king disgusting, chanting "break his legs, break his legs". Stay classy Indiana.
Nice drive to retake the lead, ran the clock a little. But here comes the defense again.
Full recovery from another Roundtree at the 1, and 99 yard drive momentum..
Denard at 305 (153/152) total yards already. 600 total a possibility???? Incredible first half.
Nice stop, now for another one. And I will be happy going into halftime.
in this game.
Time to dump the 3-3-5, it isn't working, and this "bend don't break defense" HAS to go, cuz seems like it's doing more "break" then "bend"... thoughts?
I think GERG is doing the best he can with what he's got. Which is not a lot of talent in the defensive backs. Only his second year. They are playing against a senior QB who isn't getting a lot of pressure.
I've seen the same script play out for six years now. We said the same thing in year two at SU.
This is GERG. He's a terrible coach. He doesn't coach up talent, he runs it into the ground.
He was a head coach at Syracuse, not a coordinator. You need to stop transferring your latent GERG-as-HC hate towards him as our DC. He's not working with a whole lot out there right now.
HE WAS THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR AS WELL.
If anyone thinks that Indiana has more talent on offense than we do on defense then they are dumb.
That's debatable, but what isn't debatable is that they have far more experience on O than we do on D. There aren't many freshmen and career backups starting for them on offense.
Obi is a joke and the fact that we don't have anyone who can beat him out should tell you something. Cam Gordon is not a safety, but is playing there. Kovacs may make plays in the box, but he can't cover. Yes, it is all Gerg's fault.
I think we can pull it out, but this is what the rest of the season is going to look like
I hate how we just wait for the ball catcher to come to us instead of going after him as soon as the ball is thrown. Worst secondary ever.
I got $20 that says GERG doesn't change a thing..
4th quarter, ~1:30 left, Indiana 42, Michigan 38, Michigan with the ball at the 30...I can see it already.
if a teacher show they are incapable of teaching their students, they should get fired, we all agree with that. greg has shown he can't teach these players what to do, they have the athleticism, he just isn't good at conveying his schemes, its not just having the knowledge, he needs to be able to teach it.......and he can't. he needs to go
This defense is absolutley pitiful. I really just should watch the offense and while the defense is on, go into another room and hope we can at least stop them from getting in our red zone.
Earn your money now GERG, earn your money now.
Little Caesars Pizza Bowl or bust! Our "D" is a disgrace!
I decided to wear Adidas today instead of Nike. I'm switching back to "Woodson" M shoulder away.
I'm not supertisious by the way this was meant to be a joke. Seriously though Greg Robinson needs to go. He hasn't brought any improvement to this defense and with the talent we have on D we shouldn't be this bad against offenses like Umass, BG or Indiana.
These guys aren't slow, and they can be physical...just don't seem like they know what to do, and not prepared.
No pressure on the qb whatsoever !! #@#@##
Second downs are killing us. We stop them on first down and give up nine yards on 2nd and 10. We're getting out-RPS'd on second down too often.
Our defense is terrible. C'mon now... it has to be better than we saw in the 1st half. That was wretched.
has the ball, I will be extremely worried.
throw passes. Doesn't even pretend to hand off. Don't know if we could stop that. IU would have to beat itself. D will have to do SOMETHING different or this will happen.
Croud will be out of it, and Indiana will get desperate...Robinson has to figure out a way to GET ONE STOP.
Denard orchestrates a couple 8 minute drives to keep IU off the field.
Mich D will shut them down in the second half. Don't know where my confidence is coming from but I gotta good feeling.
I have to give you the benefit of the doubt
I go with that. I'll just relax and have a beer now.
Here's hoping Indiana gets called for at least one offensive holding this half...
but is there a source I can find to watch the Michigan Mercyherst hockey game tonight? I don't have Comcast.
OK, making progress!
I love our offense.....this is fun to watch !!
The pistol is a difficult offense to defend to begin with. Add in the fact that they have a 5th year qb who I would put up against any other in the big 10 (except Denard ) and the fact that we have a VERY young secondary and this is what you get. We all knew it was going to be a shootout. We just have to hope for a stop and the chance to get up by a couple of scores. That fumble hurt bad. Michigan has to get to an early lead on any team they play and force them to be more one dimensional to take some of the guessing out of it for this young secondary. This is the most balanced Indiana has been all year and it shows because they have us on our heels the whole first half.
Junior scoring makes me happy!
Please, please stop IU just once.
Seriously.....fucking announcer said "Ernest Hemmingway excuse me Junior Hemmingway...." WOOOOOWWWWWWW.
I heard that too but I'm pretty sure Ernest Hemmingway didn't have that great of hand eye coordination.
I had no problem with Pam Ward but that is inexcusable
Do some homework
I think part of the problem with the defense is that our offense is to good. Look at TOP. The defense can't get a breather. I mean, I love 50 second drives. But that doesn't help our defense.
