stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
This is what I saw. I saw USC scoring on a big play within 2 minutes to go out by 7 and then devin throwing an arm punt to get intercepted. THis team could of packed its bags and quit making the result look like alabama but they didnt. Michigan fought this whole game. Was it perfect? Not one bit but MIchigan continued to fight and almost won the game against a top 10 team, a team if two years ago you said we had a chance against i would roll my eyes. Maybe i am too into moral victories but I am damn proud of this team.
If you don't like Michigan you are a peasant
am very proud of the players on this team.... I just cant get over the bad decisions the coaches made in key situations which cost us the momentum, and game! I love Hoke and Co, I really do. But, I scratched my head wondering "why" too many times today.
Now that that's done, I feel somewhat like I did after the Texas game, only... worse, somehow.
Gallon and Dileo have one more year. Hopefully their skills can rub off on the younger but taller receivers moving forward.
...but fundamentals, technique and execution were subpar. Too many big plays. Hoke will take blame, but will also note performance accountability by Team 133.
If you had told me in August that we would finish 8-5 w/o Denard as QB, no Fitz, JT or Haggerup, I wouldn't have believed it.
Thank you Team 133.
Is anyone so tired of watching secondary after secondary get burned?? When is the last time we had a good one? 97? I can't stand it. How hard is it to get some decent DBs?
We had (statistically) the best performing secondary of the entire country all year, lost both of our starters from the beginning of the year, and gave up a couple of big plays. Get a grip.
COYS and lets go Detroit FC!
Give me a break. Every decent passing team we played shredded us through the air. Guys wide open against Alabama, Northwestern, OSU, USC, etc. Our high ranking was largely due to playing rush-based offenses and bad QBs.
I have disagreed with every comment that you have made tonight - literlly, every one - other than this. Our secondary stats do not tell the whole story. Our DBs consistently got beaten downfield. Lack of speed is killing us.
Stats don't mean shit, especially when you accumulate them against Purdue, Illinois, UMass, Iowa, I mean terrible teams. Even ND was a horrible passing tram when we played them and Alabama didn't need to throw. When it counted, this secondary was not good.

The Big Ten had a bunch of the top ten pass defenses in the country. Nebraska was one and Murray threw for 400 yards against them. Minnesota was another.
Big Ten QBs sucked, thus the highly ranked pass defenses.
Beating the dead horse already?
needs to be removed from the field.

I really think you should post this and argue it in a few more threads.

We lost our best and second best corners in Countess and Floyd. So please tell me which schools out there have their 3rd and 4th best corners not getting burned.
It takes time for recruiting to catch up. We have Dymonte Thomas, Channing Stribling, and Jourdan Lewis coming in, and the coaches continue to recruit hard for the secondary. It is coming, but depth doesn't happen overnight.
Again, the color commentators were trying to be delicate, but reading through the lines, they clearly indicated that Mattison has done a masterful job with subpar talent. The talent is coming.

John Gruden is a douchebag. the end.
If you were listening, he gushed over Lewan, and Denard, and Ryan, and Roh, and Gardner, and Gallon. Yes, he had high praise for the USC defensive line, which he should have. As it was, he also praised the ability of Michigan to largely neutralize the USC DL.
On that last play I wish the DBs would have just tackled the WR. Oh well.
not let him get behind them.
Dissapointing game obviously, but I was really impressed with what I saw out of the offense. We were able to routinely open up holes for our RBs from under center against a great run defense. We haven't really been able to do that to this point, even against terrible run defenses. Add a guy like Derrick Green to that equation and that's a damn good rushing attack. Borges also had a pretty good game, though Gardner let him down a bit. At the end of the day, if we had either of our starting CBs available we probably win. All you can really do is look forward to next year.
I believe Vincent Smith's helmet came off before the "exchange" from Gardner.
Shouldn't the play be called dead at that instant?
(I'm actually OK w/ the review official overlooking that as a makeup call. I think Spurrier would have gone Brian Kelly-purple had they reversed the call, and he's too old for that.)
let it go.it was a awesome play.
The play doesn't stop, but Smith could no longer participate.
Here are my snowflakes:
Gardner did not play great.
What Yost said.
means hitting your receivers in their hands. He over threw a couple, but the receivers had their fare share of drops.
A couple? More like a dozen.
Honestly dude, you're such a little bitch I wish you go root for another team.
Sing to the colors that float in the light;
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
He's posting within the rules and there's no reason for ad hominem attacks. If he bugs you that much, just ignore him or try to present some articulate argument against his position.
Fine. Sorry for the ad hominem attack. But, read through his posts, they are almost all whiney complaints. Nothing is ever good enough for him, and it's annoying as hell. I'll try to ignore him, but he contributes to nearly every thread with his snarky little jabs at players, coaches, and the program as a whole. It's a disgrace that he uses F.H. Yost's name as his handle in here. Yost was a great man, and contributed to building the greatest college football program in the nation. This jack wagon whines and complains about everything and has contributed FUCK ALL!
I really dislike people that claim to be fans, claim to love something, then do nothing but belittle it and those that are trying their hardest to again make it great. He's obviously entitled to his opinion, but I just don't suffer negative snarky people who just sit and shit on everyone as if they're the fucking bomb. I'd rather he go root for MSU, or ND, or his neighbor's softball team -- anything but the
That would necessitate ghost making an valid and sound argument himself. Too bad he chose the butthurt route.
that was funny. I wasn't expecting that.
Our defensive line was not solid today. They missed so many sacks with arm tackles and there was almost no pass rush amongst them. Any pressure on the qb was created by blitzes which then left our weak secondary on single coverage that South Carolina continually exposed.
4 of our 5 losses came against teams with a 47-3 record combined. Not bad but 5 losses is not by any means acceptable at this program
There is god, there is family, and then there is MICHIGAN FOOTBALL
We need to work on a different technique for punt coverage, when the gunners dont get there against an elite returner (ace sanders) we are done for. I know im echoing Brian here but this game obviously made it apparent.
Also I am very excited to see the progression of Devin in the spring. He has all the tools to be a great QB but he needs as many reps as possible to iron out his inconsistencies.
Did he play at corner? I dont remember seeing him out there on D since there was talk of him playin CB for the game.
We kept hearing the hype about the freshmen in bowl practices, but I don't seem to recall them being in the game at all. Any thoughts on this? Are the coaches hesitant to play younger players on offense for fear of the mental breakdown? I thought Funchess was under-utilized I'm this game as well. Gardner doesn't overthrow him as easily as he does Gallon. Also, freshmen seemed to see a good bit of the field on defense, so maybe it's a Borges thing against freshmen?

Darboh and Chesson. They are 2 of the biggest receivers we have. I am pretty confident they haven't accumulated any stats this year, but I thought they have been in games. So does are their redshirts still in place? Borges seemed to pull out all the stop for the whole game, and those were 2 weapons that weren't used in this game.
Darboh's is definitely burnt.
Gallon and Roundtree played pretty well, Gallon especially. There may not have been a need to use them. And at this point, I'd rather not burn Chesson's redshirt. We've already burned Darboh's, which for the life of me I can't understand why.
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
I'd say at least I didn't blow $2-3k on a trip down there to see us lose, and I still haven't witnessed a loss in person since Wisconsin '10....
But that would be a lie; I'd still rather have been down there with the men.
I was there and it was a loss but in some weird way it feels like am inspiring loss. We got beaten on talent but with the transitions that was an issue which time will fix in the near future
If Derrick Green doesn't come here,I dread out running attack next season.
What did I miss?
He's not that good. No speed and can only break tackles against Purdue and Illinois. People need to forget about him (guy only had Mac level offers) and pray that Fitz comes back healthy or we land Green.
for someone with 16 points....
The only reason he's at Michigan is because his HS coach is related to Fred Jackson.
