This will be your snowflake thread for the offense and offensive playcalling. Ugh.
The Snowflake Thread: Offense
For once have original "snowflake" threads instead of this pre planned crap?
Who are the 11% who voted "no"? Fire them, too.
want Borges to stay
'Forward, the Light Brigade!'
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldiers knew
Some one had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred...
That piece of shit OC Borges. He's the worst coach in Michigan history
I still give that award to GERG and the beaver
Gerg's units were statistically worse for sure. In my opinion, though, Gerg was working with less talent, didn't get his own offensive staff, and probably had more meddling from the Head Coach than Borges does. Taken in context, I think Borges' management of the offense this year to be on par with anything Gerg threw out there.
The offensive play calling was just that. Offensive play calling.
Pathetic. Pretty much sums it up. Pathetic
If you see ''Fire Borges'' signs all over Michgian Stadium next week, I made them. I'll probably be handing them out as well.
Positive: only 1 game left in the regular season for the offense to embarrass itself.
At Keats blocking seemed better today and I liked the screens.
Funches played horribly. It is amazing how often we are on 3rd and 10+.
159 yards, even with 4 turnovers by the defense.
eh, turnovers lead to short fields. You could expect fewer yards with more turnovers. Not that I'm making any excuses for this offense though
Yeah, but those short fields are the only way they score those 14 points. They got no yards that weren't given to them. Still another day when I call out plays to my wife before they run them. That's BAD. I'm not football smart. Neither is Al Borges.
Think all the snowflake threads are drinking threads.... minus the Staind marathon thread, wait that's drinking too...
It was paintful
Total and Utter Embarrasment.
This has to change now. Borges and Funk need to GTFO. We have never seen a Michigan offense play this poorly. Ever.
6 yards of O in the second half until the last drive. Refusal to be anything but predictable. No toughness on the line. Joke. Sad. Pitiful. Crap. Garbage. Inexcusable mess. Junk.
All our RBs are useless and can't block, and our only competent receiver is a 5th year senior Rodriguez recruit. Keep Ferrigno for special teams but fire the part of him that coaches TEs.
Our running backs are useless? Green and Smith have ran well considering the blocking. They just aren't getting carries. Are you saying Funchess isn't a good receiver? Chesson has showed some bright spots. Our most promising receiver has been injured all year. I don't understand how you can say we don't have receivers
At least it's basketball season!
Al Borges is by far the worst but Brady is the head coach. I also think that Mattison lost it in the 4th quarter too. The play where Iowa ran for 14 yards with three offset down linemen was one of the worst defensive calls I have ever seen (I could have ran for ten) and that first down is what gave them the gimme FG. If Brady doesn't get rid of Borges (after the OSU loss), than he should be let go too. There aren't any excuses for the crap that us fans are forced to watch, week after week, from this offense...
D played pretty well... Yes 2 drives they did poorly but overall with the 4 TOs they did more than was needed to win the game. I am happy with the defense. All the offense is the problem.
Another great Borgy call was finally putting 4 WR on the field and then running the ball for a loss. If Borges isn't fired at the end of the year because Hoke is protecting him then Hoke needs to go. Don't fall on your sword, Brady. Just hire an offensive innovator and a better line coach and you can stay!
like any team with a functioning offense.
The first thing to make me smile in several hours.
This made laugh out loud and all of a sudden I feel great!
Poor damn Conestoga wagon
I finally started laughing today.
(Fire Borges/Fire Funk)
The Al Borges apologists have no bullets left. None.
So ridiculous. I don't know how Borges survives into next year.
Back to back end arounds? Genius Al, genius. For a net total of zero yards. But don't worry, highly doubt Borges is let go, so 2014 is gonna be all sorts of fun.
The only thing I look forward to next week is Desmond finally calling Borges out on GameDay. Oh wait....
2014: Morris in, Gardner to WR. I'll happily take Bellomy/Cleary/Speight as the backups. Gardner is not a QB.
I totally agree here needs to b a change I said it after the Nebraska game put Morris and green in the game. The seasons over build in the future. Most importantly FIRE BORGES!!
Gardner's only opportunity at the next level is at wideout. Morris at QB in '14 with a 4 playmaker wideout lineup of Gardner, Funchess, Darboah, and Harris sounds good to me.
So if Morris gets hurt you go to Bellomy, a walk on, or a true freshman who hasn't proved anything? Did everyone forget about the Nebraska game last year? Gardner has regressed but you can't move him to receiver. Also Morris hasn't taken a meaningful snap all year. Why does everyone think he is going to be a god already?
