We should just start every series as a third and nine.
Penn State Game Open Thread
Right where only Gallon could get it
Can we maybe get some yards on any down other than 3rd?
I thought DENARD was a INT machine. Good lord Devin!
and yet almost was terrible. sounds like the story of gardner's year
a score before half. Once night falls, that atmosphere will be tough to win in.
Throw it higher and that's 6.
Shane Morris now.
anyone calling for Morris is a complete moron
why do we always get alums of our opponents for our announcers
That's a good play
But it's got to be hard to call a game when your line can't block anyone & your QB keeps throwing to the other team
It's also his job to prepare them...
I could eat at Arby's
Would've been six if not for a great CB play. I don't fault him there.
done with borges, changes must be made.
We almost got Woodson'd
Now I understand why Denard was starting QB last year. I didn't think passing skills could be worse.
No fucking blocking
another gardner turnover
No left tackle..
Terrible terrible terrible
Our offensive line is not adequate right now.
But put Morris in.
Not saying it that he's going to be the savior but he needs to get time because Gardner is NOT it.
and simultaneously a preview of our next year team.
this offense is horrible and has no great prospects of getting any better next year.
Darboh, Harris with Chesson, Funchess and Butt.
Damien Harris, Peppers, etc.
I don't want to hear anyone complain about people whining. This team is embarrassing. 3 out of 6 weeks we have come out and gotten outplayed by absolutely pathetic opposition. There is no excuse for performances like this. We may come back and win this but this team sucks plain and simple.
Unfortunately - no one. 5-7 seems likely.
Nope, we have precendent for this crap in the last two years of the RR reign. Tough schedule at the end with easily exploited flaws on the team does not lead to a happy end of the year. Struggles against terrible opponents and a complete dismantling by a team it appears we should have had a chance against. All of this should be familiar and lead to the conclusion that 5-7 is DISTINCTLY possible and may even be likely.
Mattison is showing he has no faith in his secondary
Sh-ane Mor-ris. Clap clap clapclapclap
mo-ron clap clap clap mo-ron clap clap clap
Nope, he's the future and Devin is beyond ineffective. May as well see what we've got as I don't think it can get any worse.
Gardner has absolutely NO pocket presence. He cannot feel pressure. I have no idea what's going through his mind. We are doomed!
Come on. That one is on the o-line. No one blocked the end
Show me one play Gardner has recognized the blitz and where it's coming from. He has no idea what's going on back there. No Morris will not be better but he needs the time on the field. Gardner is a tire fire out of control.
should be the TUCK rule
No ball was coming back toward the body not a throwing motion
you are such a wimp. have a back bone. sparty blows and ohio cheats
I agree with the have a backbone comment but this is ridiculous. Cheating or not, Ohio is better on the field (they're not roiding -- they're just selling shit how does that help them on the field?).
Ohio cheats, but they will still look us look terrible in November. Optimism is good, but to look at this team and see a good product is absolutely insane. Besides ND, the coaches and players have been putting a bad product on the field every game.
This team has done nothing but regress since the Sugar bowl victory. Coaching changes must be made and made Monday. Fire Funk and Borges
Totally agree. Both of them are terrible.
Careful now, the irrational Borges loyalists will attack you for such an insolent statement.
As a Georgia fan, I can say I've already invested time in this experience today so...
LETS GO BLUE!
or the back should have slid over.
Gardner is Turnover King.
Schofield blocked the wrong guy.
Pretty embarrassing showing today. Ugly on the field and on the sidelines.
Not really Devin's fault there when the guy who forced the fumble came UNTOUCHED
Now is it okay to say bad things about the team without being called a shitty fan?
the o-line is clueless. DE is left unchecked and LG blocks no one.
will be no worse than what we have going on now.
At this point how do we know that? I mean this is worse that the Sheridan , Threat year.
Where are you finding 2 more wins????
I'm gonna flip my shit if they let DG out of the lockerroom after halftime with the #98 jersey on his back. I don't think calling for Shane Morris just yet makes any sense, but I do know Devin is absolutely undeserving of any comparison to Harmon in the least.
77 Out. This is looking like one of those nightmare games.
For the osu game??? lol we fucking suck
Buckeye fans are. They will destroy us.
Put in Morris and have him hand it off. Anything is better than all these TOs
We've spotted every team we've played so many points, it's pathetic.
I'm thinking of becoming a UCLA fan.
He's ready to hang 60 on us.
Borges and Mattison must be high
Clap clap clap clap
Is that 14 turnovers in 6 games?
We will definitely be on there
And we are so fucking fucked with Lewan gone to the locker room
had us by the throat
...but does Borges get blamed for an inability to run Fitzgerald Toussaint off tackle to pick up four yards? Nobody on this offense blocks. Check that -- Jeremy Gallon is a terrific little blocker.
No and yes. Our blocking sucks, but so do play calls that run it into an 8 man front
Chesson is a beast at blocking
We literally have the worst o-line in Michigan football history.
He could be much, much worse.
Take a knee. We are lucky to be within 11 points.
take a knee and give up. or go for it and give up a pick 6. i feel like those are our only options.
god you people are such fucking wimps. Have a back bone and some faith. come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are such fucking defeatists!!!!!!!
I think you're the one being unrealistic. This is an abomination. Most everyone can see that.
Lewan hasn't even been that good this year. Everyone thinks he's Jake Long. There's not even a comparison.
You're an idiot
This is so true. But I think part of it is trying to do too much to cover the mistakes of everyone else.
Your an idiot
What's fucked up, in my mind, is that even when we go max protect Devin has very little time. We cannot run, but we cannot protect either. It's weird.
this is michigan forgodsakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
can't pick up a yard against prevent defense
I've figured it out guys. I thought the problem was a bad OL, but in reality we're just inadequate at every position.
we are not trying to get any points to end the half? wtf is that?
Fitz will just NOT RUN FORWARD!
6 yards. Makes me sad
Can we fire our O line coach
I think it's hoke? Didn't we loose our old one to the sooners?
Let's run to the left with Lewan out...fucking wow
Run out the clock?
Pathetic. Giving up with 1:40 left. They receive to start the 2nd, too.
We are so bad...when do the Tigers start?
Can we please throw the fucking ball on a 1st down??????? My god 3rd and 8, 3rd and 10 is happening way too often. Penn State would shit themselves (so would I) if Borges would call Play Action on a 1st down.
Ok I'm good now
Running out the clock w 1:30 left in the half
Call some plays dude
Please no more Borgi
No way it's to bitch at the staff
a team regress as quickly and completely as this michigan team has. gotta put that on the coaching staff.
Regressing implies that they were ahead of where they are today. THE OL IS THE WORST IN THE NATION, hands down! There is no regression, there is complete SHIT!
Sorry to say. Can't run, can protect, what the FUCK can you do?!?
There will be plenty of material for TWIS this week.
Very cowardly end to the first half. Run out the clock when you're down 11? Pretty stupid.
and PSU has the ball at start of 2nd half. Take a shot down field at least
Def is playing mostly OK - though still have given up sort of 21 points.
O-Line is just playing horribly. Really bad. Making nothing possible and has been directly influential in DG playing like shit.
The reason putting in Morris would be worse is because he does not have the mobility that Gardner does. With this offensive line you would be putting a true freshman into an impossible situation where he is constantly under pressure, in a hostile environment. Does no one remember last year when everyone was saying to put in Bellomy? Then when it happened during the Nebraska game it was a nightmare.
Derrick Green transferred yet? Fitz is ineffective and they keep trotting him out there.
OL won't block any better for Green
Blast someone rather than fitz stretch it to the outside for -6 yards.
He's actually really been decent for what he has to work with. I'm not being an asshole right now but this is the worst offensive line I've seen in my twenty five years of watching Michigan football. Somebody tell me one that's worse?
or are we leaving out those years we'd rather not remember?
but they could at least pass block sometimes
This isn't on Touissant, he literally has the scratch and claw to get back to the LOS. This offensive line is terrible, really really terrible.
Jehu kills men
Go introduce yourself to Devin Gardner and let him know that you're an asset.
If we punt vs. turn the ball over, then we're winning.
Well, we haven't gotten one yard up the middle all game, not really surprised we didn't again. Not really surprised we continue to try things that don't work too well for us either.
We fell apart before the season started. This team just really sucks
So you have no hope in Hoke getting a new OC?
I can't see Hoke firing Borges honestly
Thanks for the go ahead to hate on this. You're an idiot.
I wanna punch you in your big fucking head!
I wouldn't go that far to say never at all. But to not wear a headset and thus put 100% of your trust in Borges to run an offense certainly calls Hoke's legitimacy into question. Either put on a damn headset and assert yourself, or get a more competent OC who can do it on their own. If Hoke doesn't have the balls to do one of those 2 things, then there may be a chance you are right.
About Beilein. Grow up.
We need Green on first down dammit
BORGES HAS TO GO! How many times is he gonna run it behind center for no gain or loss? They need to spread the field out.
Borges hasn't called a good game but it doesn't help when your QB is turning the ball over every other possession.
No coach is going to win like that.
that couldn't have gone much worse
Guess I won't be winning a T-shirt
You havent came at him at all
The most disappointing thing is that Devin looks defeated already.
Shitty o-line and shitty RBs = Win
Christ this offensive line is a joke.
that jacksonville jaguars offense
balls out (with all due respect to lewan) in the second half. mattison better unleash the dogs. we need to create some turnovers by their QB. and borges needs to open up the playbook.
is that it's too late.
We've spent the entire fist half with soft coverage, no pressure, allowing a freshman QB to throw 3 touchdowns and gain a FUCKTON of confidence.
a couple sacks and/or forced TO will shatter any confidence he has. getting hit kinda does that to you.
I'm done though. I'll leave it recording...
Oh, but that didn't work out so well last time in happy valley and I left it recording at half after QB turnover machine, to watch later, hoping...
This was going to be tough, PSU embarrassed last week & angry. 3 turnovers = down 11. Could be worse
It's time to be realistic. This team is mediocre and when they turn the ball over like they have been they can lose to anyone (see UConn and Akron). That said, pulling Gardner or crucifying Borges isnt going to change the fact we arent very good. If no improvement in offense next year Borges and Funk need to go. I think people's expectations got massively skewed by ND game. It looks like that was a once-in-a-career performance by Gardner at this point. We are now reverting to the mean
Every season is a reversion to the mean, and it's a pretty low mean. Doesn't solve much to sit here and complain about Borges or Gardner or whatever else, I get it. But if we're going to be satisfied with 8-5 every year from now until forever, not sure what's the point either.
It's just hard to believe a program with all the money, facilities, national fan base, recruiting reach, and on and on can just continue to be this mediocre year after year, coach after coach. Something is broken inside the program. We're taking what should be easy - a program with more built in advantages than all but a small handful of teams winning a lot of games against a weak schedule - and turning it into the insurmountable task. Every program has down games and even the occasional down season. No one else that has our ceiling falls this far short of it annually, to the point where it's just expected.
Fuck Borges he is worthless. Also how is Gardner in grad school we should check his grades in undergrad.
Just because he's struggling on the field doesn't mean that he isn't smart as you're suggesting.
I immediately regretted posting that. Idk how to delete from my phone. I'm drunk and I apologize
we should check your grades and how you been able to get a job
I'm in college and i immediately regretted saying that. I'm drunk and I don't know how to delete posts on my phone
They better make some big adjustments at halftime.
THERE WILL BE NO SNOWFLAKES THREAD. THERE ARE NO SNOWFLAKES TODAY.
large piles of steaming shit comets
He is the opposite clone of RR and Al Borges is his Greg Robinson. People just give him a pass because he pays lip service to Michigan traditions and he accidently coined a phrase that mouth breathers love.
is that he recruits well. other than that, no results on the field other than 1 good season on the backs of RR's players
That'll leave a mark
If that's all you see you don't know shit about football.
This is what I was afraid of when he was hired.
I wanna punch you in your BIG FUCKING HEAD!
Stupidest commit of the day.
That was for the commit before
Ok I was sarcastically exaggerating a few posts ago, but you are obviously not. Defense is getting put in some garbage situations, snaps are snaps and they are getting worn down. Hoke isn't completely innocent here (headset is on), but Borges is just....I really think he is an Ohio State spy. That or he is just spectacular and destroying talent. Inside screen with Funchess? Whaa...Why? Without an invisibility cloak, that should never be run.
all pass plays are 7 step drops? We have gallon and dileo...two slot ninjas.
why can't we dink and dunk it somemore. PSU is shading everything to gallon so the other half of the field has to be open. BOth picks were thrown to bracket coverage on gallon.
seems to be tracking dangerously close to those of ty willingham and charlie weiss. 1 good year utilizing the previous regime's players, and then no improvement, then regression. now on to mediocrity!
starting to agree. plenty of teams come into a program with less talent and stabilze. no such thing has happened since the sugar bowl win
And let's not forget that we got incredibly lucky in that Sugar Bowl win. VT got objectively hosed with that no TD call.
You have to give the freshman QB opportunities. Their freshman QB seems to be doing well.
Live by Gardner and die by Gardner is eventually just going to be die.
Their freshman QB is at home against virtually no pass rush. Morris will not be in that situation.
3rd down efficiency
4th down efficiency
|6 for 12||9 for 15|
Yards per pass
Yards per rush
The only difference is the turnovers.
Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the Play?
Pretty much suck too.
Gardner: 11 Rush, 47 yrds
Fitz: 11 Rush, 6 yrds
Green: 1 Rush, 3 yrds
... might actually be accurate.
Raise your hand...
Mean drunk over here. On second thought, just disappointed drunk.
PSU is just putting 8 in the box knowing, since Borges/Hoke are on the road, that they will just run it up the middle. I don't really get it
Now we see why Borges has been a journeyman OC. He has no rhyme or reason to his play calls. I wonder if he watches game film sometimes
Absolutely correct. And I've seen more than 25 years of Michigan football. This is clearly the worst.
put these guys in the posiiton to succeed.
Our stategy of not b listzing has directly resulted in 3 TD passes for a true freshman. No pressure has only built hi confidence. On the other hand, Penn State has rushed 6 and caused pressure directly resulting in 3 TO's for Michigan. Those factors along with our unimaginative 1st down play calling have resulted in a first half whooping.
We did the same thing against Akron and uconn. No blitzes, and no pressure. 3 out of 6 weeks we have been outplayed by absolutely pathetic opposition. I never comment during games but this is infuriating. I can't believe we r this bad. We can still win this game but we suck.
to Wild Turkey. I don't want to remember this tomorrow.
OK but seriously. I cannot stand that Michigan's gotten three touchdowns scored on them on 3rd and longs. Stop just ONE of those plays and suddenly the game doesn't seem so awful. Same thing with Devin. If he doesn't turnover the ball just once out of those 3 times, game is different. I don't get why this team loves shooting itself in the foot.
The larger issue is the run game. What a tire fire. I don't even know what to think anymore.
At least runs north to south. Punch them up the middle instead of these sweeps. Very easy to say as a Couch Coach though. Cheers to a better second half!
Mattison's game plan has been pretty piss poor as well. No way PSU should've put in a TD after either of the first two INT's. IU messed with Hackenberg by bringing heat.. For Mattison to rush 3 on bod 3rd downs is mystifying.
Borges is absolutely the worst OC Michigan has ever had!
Gardner is a great Athlete but a horrible QB. Anyone know the NCAA record for TO's in a season?
Can't find individual, but North Texas had 61 in 1971.
The turnovers are the difference in this game based on those stats from above. Think we have to make better calls since it seems every first down is run up the middle but the turnovers are killing us.
Hire Cam Cameron.
Again, Borges is one of the top 10 play DESIGNERS in the country.
Borges is one of the top 10 WORST play CALLERS in the country.
He also is a horrible QB coach.
Borges should be some kind of play design assistant, he should never call another play at Michigan.
Can't block straight up. No coordinator can get past that.
Don't call 5 and 7 step drops that take time to develop.
Throw quick passes that eliminate poor O-Line play.
I'm sitting behind an computer with no football coaching experience in my life and even I know that. If I know that, why doesn't the offensive coordinator for the Michigan Wolverines?
If you know so much more than he does?
We have two NFL tackles and a 5-star guard. Yes we are weak on the inside but there's no reason we should need 'Bama's line to at least have a decent running game.
Is it lack of confidence/experience or more just philosophy that Gardner isn't given options at the line? When we run plays straight into the overplayed D, they wouldn't work with last year's Alabama's line.
Great questions. Maybe Heiko can ask that.
I'm back. Are we winning yet?
If the object is to see how many first down runs into 8 and 9 man boxes a team can have then yes. Michigan is dominating.
YES! We've won!
Honest to god it's like 2009 all over again.
2009 was fun compared to this. We could score points, with Tate Forcier and sometimes Denard Robinson.
honestly, please tell me you're kidding
I wish Gardner had some competition at QB. It would simulate pressure more in practice and would give us a back up option during games like this. So frustrating.
The lack of D pressure is the most disturbing to me personally. Sadly, I expect Gardener to suck, but for MAttison to have not learned from the IU gameplan shocks me.
But.....but...but it worked so good in practice.
It's almost like we play the whole fucking game from a script and what's actually happening on the field has zero bearing on coaching decisions.
Ryan has only been on the field for two of the TDs this afternoon.
Lou Holtz is sucking on his Halloween candy early this year.
Bring back RR...These coaches are awful....sit Devin he's the worst QB I've seen play at Michigan in the last 55 years
Dear God no...
Obviously you were in a coma during the Sheri-damit/Threet season.
You don't bring Morris in @ Penn State on the road. Maybe if the game is in hand one way or the other, fine. Not now though, you run the risk of really messing with his confidence. You could also strike gold with Morris, but man, it's a big risk when you take a look at what is behind him on the depth chart.
He has a torn ACL...
But hopefully we'll make adjustments and make it a better game in the second half. Only down 11.
And all of you excessively negative nancys aren't allowed back on the bandwagon or allowed to rock your wolverine gear if we win or get back on track for the season. Get lost. We're 5-0.
Yeah, It's frustrating, but no reason to whine like little b*tches.
Move Gardner back to WR and let Morris and Speight duke it out for the starting job.
Gardner, Darboh, Chesson and Funchess...that's a more than formidable receiving group for a QB, even a young one.
TURNOVERS. PSU has one drive, all the other scores are off or turnovers. People can call that coaching all they want, but I fail to see how turnovers are on the coaching staff. The two INT's were HORRIBLE reads, and the fumble was poor pocket awareness/blocking.
Bottom line, when you cannot block ANYONE -- whether running or passing -- you're not going to win games.
Its the coaches job to educate the QB to not turn the damn ball over - or - replace him with some who can hold on to it!
Although I want to punch you in your BIG FUCKING HEAD, you're right.
It's baffleing, to say the least. It's like Michigan's OL simply cannot block at the point of attack. Every team we've played just OWNED the LOS. It makes no sense.
Derrick Green 1car 3 yds
nice to see us get other backs incolved also.
A five star bust that is a freshman? How much have you had to drink so far?
much to judge him, 1 car 3 yds doesn't make him a bust, they're not playing anyone but seniors it seems each year when younger guys might be better.
Just a drive...see how he does. It can't go any worse.
amazingly UM has had the ball for 20 minutes to PSU's 10. Same # of yards. Turnover city.
Devin is on pace for 20+ INTs alone this year - not to mention fumbles. 3 Turnovers today, on pace for 6 - so yeah.
Dear Mattison - what do you think Martinez, the 2 NW kids, Miller, anyone Indiana throws out, and even Cook is going to do when you get zero pressure. If you wont blitz a freshman QB I guess we wont blitz anyone. (I dont blame the defense for this score, its on Devin but please)
Will Heiko please remind Hoke why Rich Rod got fired at the next post game presser?
Comparing RR and Hoke is crazy. If Hoke is fired it will not be for the same reasons RR got the axe.
I know we're young in a lot of areas, especially on the O-Line, but Christ, there's no way they should be this bad. Especially when you have the best left tackle in America protecting your QB.
If it's this bad against the likes of Penn State, which has a mediocre D-line at best, how bad do you think it could get against OSU, which has a pretty damn good line?
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I think Funk might need to go. Youth and inexperience for your players are excuses that can only get you so far. The play of this line has just been downright awful, whichever way you slice it.
Worst O-line and Running game ive ever seen watching mich football.. Predictable play calling.. This team has regressed every year..
We are now going to lose to a freshman QB and a team with 60 scholly players.. what a joke
Dudes got themselves a new O-line coach midway through the season and it worked out great.
I mean they went from barely being able to score against FCS teams to hanging 70 in the B1G championship game.
I'm teetering on full meltdown, but at the end of the day, we played an AWFUL first half (particularly on offense) and this game is still within reach. I'll withhold total panic, but things are really not looking good.
it's not they're moving ball and then turning it over. They have no offense other than Garnder's legs right now. They need the d or special teams to score points. Heck, the defense gave them a couple short fields and all they got was a 47 yd FG.
I haven't seen anything yet, but the game is 4 quarters. Teams make adjustments and get it together. I'm not saying that WILL happen, but it can. And as a fan I'm still leaning on that until it's over.
Everyone needs to Appologize to Rich Rod and offer that guy his job back. This team is 5-0 and I want to fire the coaching staff.
That seems a bit much.
Rich Rod couldn't beat a B1G team to save his life.
First and 10 with 1:20 left and you get 9 yards... Then you run the clock out on 2 plays that haven't worked all game... Burn the whole thing down.
Maybe it's te vodka talking but in ready to start over.
... With all due respect Mr Yost, you shut up... :)
Eli Manning at the manning camp?
How much worse can he be? Besides, It's a lot less disturbing to see the typical mistakes of a true Freshman than seeing the same mistakes being made by an experienced Junior.
Ok, I'm pissed off, but this thread is pathetic. Once again going to have to turn off MGoBlog AKA MLive until the game is done. Peace!
Can we get a 2nd half thread
We'll be fine, Devin will settle in and we'll win 34-24.
This thread smells bad.
We are going to win.
Michigan: love it or leave it.
We need much more optimism around this freaking blog!! Lets go blue!! We play to win, not play to worry about losing!!
And in areas where you think Michigan is getting killed, they aren't. They just suck. PSU 5 yard advantage in total yards and an 11 point differential, all because of turnovers. Michigan failed to take advantage of field position on a tunover on downs, then scored on a bomb and went ahead on a field goal. But the freshman qb has made plays while Gardner hasn't. Michigan looks slow, lethargic and uncomfortable with no apparent answers to anything.
We play every week as if our primary goal is winning TOP. Right now, it's a weekly competition to see if we can beat ourselves worse with turnovers or with an obsolete approach to winning football. It's not a question of spread vs "pro style." It's a question of why so many basic football plays are missing from this offense. ANY offensive approach should at least include the occasional quick slant, quick out, dump off... some kind of pass play that doesn't take 10 minutes to set up, that doesn't require a lengthy play action rollout or 7 step drop. The defense can just stack the box and attack, and we have NO answers for that, no way to punish them. Even a crap defense full of walk-ons with no pro prospects or depth can shut you down if you play right into their hands like we insist on doing week after week.
Calling for anyone's head on a message board is just about as futile as it gets. But I'm sick of the blind spots. How stubborn can you be? How long to realize that this approach isn't working and it's not always as simple as guys not executing? It's not talent, not when you look at the teams we've played. Notre Dame is the only team that even approaches us in talent. How many blue chips to we have to sign to win comfortably vs Akron or UConn? How many seasons to develop that talent? When Penn State (playing pro style, by the way,) is further along than we are even with severe scholarship limitations, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.
Agreed. Maybe Heiko can ask some real questions next week.
Heikos in a bit of a tough spot isn't he? I think all in all they do a good job with questions, but I do get a little annoyed at his rapport with Borges... my bias I guess
sure. But I think the defense gets a 3 and out, and we get some good field position.
That sure was a godsend
Maybe if we create a second half open thread this game will change for us...
the football letterwinners, the M ring alumni, and all of the guys who wanted to see the return of dominant Michigan football, with big linemen controlling the line of scrimmage and beating other teams with fundamentals.
When you've been rooting for Michigan to lose for three years just so you can be smug?
The rest of the way. I know we are young but This should not be happening in Hokes 3rd year
Borges is setting Gardner up to fail...every single possesion they try and run the ball from under center. GUESS WHAT IT DOESNT WORK! You are putting Gardner in 3rd and longs! The only rush yards you have is from Gardner...RUN THE SPREAD! READ OPTION!
the mods are going to earn their money in a couple of hours. I put the over/under on nuked threads at 10
Our O-Line reminds me of my freshman team in HS. Stuffed every time. What what what Frank Clark!!!! TD!!!!!!!!
Well, Fitz's 11 carries for 6 yards have got me thinking we should give the nod to Green more.
We cant run against a pop warner team
how can we be pushed around so badly?
Why can't we dink and dunk our way down the field?
It mitigates poor OLine play and keeps you ahead on the down and distance. It also puts pressure on the defense to continue to tackle and make plays. One missed tackle and a nice block and Gallon or Dileo is off to the races.
We don't have to have this 90s NFL dropback passing game. Just quick throws and get the ball in the hands of the playmakers and let them try to do something with the ball. Every now and again, go PA pass and take your shot down field to keep them honest.
we gonna rush 3 and think that will work?
Rich Rod had a better first half at PSU.
Still plenty of time left. I'm hoping for more deep passing. We were beating their DBs deep many times. And if it turns into an INt, we don't lose the field position.
Passing game NEEDS to open up the run, and Devins short passing is suspect at best. Start sending Gallon, Funch, Chesson and Dileo deep.
Does anyone know what time it is? Oh wait, I do. It's time for Michigan to win the game and get the girl. Then Hoke will point and everyone will cheer. The good times are here again.
TO's are why we only have so few points. But we should have at least 14 and our D gave up at least one TD that should've ended up a FG attempt.
Go deep. 5 wide and spread it out.
from the CCHA to B1G Hockey.
If we don't win today, then hopefully at least Clemson and Oregon can win. Last thing we need is to give OSU an easier path to the title game.
YES YES YES YES
GO BLUE!!!!!! LET'S DO THS!!!!!
there it is!!!
Frank MF Clark!!
Sorry haters, the bandwagon has left the station.
GOD DAMNIT BORGES STOP CALLING FUMBLE RECOVERIES FOR TDS!!
Clark scored...we know the offense would have done nothing with it
These are two not very good football teams today.
I take back all of my first half criticisms! We're #1!
Maybe not, but we can win this game if we start playing some ball. Great start.
help cover up your bad offensive play calling.
Is that what the giant red S in the end zone is for?
How about going jumbo at tailback?
But really just a makeup for UConn. Now let's play.
