We did, and they apologized profusely. Someone there just made an honest mistake.

Hmm. Now that I think of it, this is even more embarassing than I initially thought.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Lockwood and Slaker have both||
Lockwood and Slaker have both exceeded my expectations offensively and defensively. I've been really impressed with everything they've done so far. They probably aren't going to deke a guy out of his jock, but they pressure along the boards, create turnovers, and get into good position to take a pass and score. Slaker's also been good on faceoffs.

Sure, I can do that. Appreciate the feedback.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for that. I've gotta||
Thanks for that. I've gotta figure out why there are such discrepancies between the two. This came up recently with total tackles as well.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||There's no easily streamable||
There's no easily streamable replay available, but if you have a cable provider that has the Pac 12 Network and a replay happens to be on, you can stream it. Here's the Pac 12 Network schedule: https://pac-12.com/live

He may not have been talking about me but my blushing is a near constant thing, so smart money is on "yes."
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Though I truly appreciate||
Though I truly appreciate that you guys think it could be me, the Adam he's referring to is Adam Biggers.

Got the numbers from here:

Oh yeah, now I remember why we have a "Donovan Peoples-Jones jumps over things" tag
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Lines are simply an abstract||
Lines are simply an abstract division of space. I colored what I interpreted as appropriate.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I would not have accepted it,||
I would not have accepted it, no. I was just curious about what happened.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Just wanted to poke my head||
Just wanted to poke my head in to say thank you. We've got the best readers anywhere, and to know you guys liked the piece means a ton to me.
I'm very fortunate to work somewhere where I'm allowed to try different things. Couldn't ask for a better start to profiling a player than talking to incredible people like Jourdan, Nikole, Terry, and Coach Tandy. Here's hoping this is the first of many profiles.

David gets all the credit for making this post possible. I was working on something that should be posted later today, and he graciously offered to make the trip and film for us.
Oh, and it's worth noting that he got stuck in their homecoming parade. He's an MGoTrooper, that's for sure.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I love that you love it.||
I love that you love it. Writing these and having the opportunity to talk to the guys are always highlights of my week.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||FWIW I agree with the above.||
FWIW I agree with the above.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I honestly feel bad that I||
I honestly feel bad that I missed that. Wasted opportunity.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||You're right, it's turnover||
You're right, it's turnover margin.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||The way Bill C. tracks this||
The way Bill C. tracks this is with turnover margin. Michigan was expected to finish the game +0.95 and actually finished +2.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||That was an oversight on my||
That was an oversight on my part and also really not great for RPI. Yeesh, Ferris.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Excellent question. It still||
Excellent question. It still says he's a Michigan commit in his twitter bio, but I'll have to ask around. Assuming he'll be part of next year's class.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I forgot that the html code||
I forgot that the html code doesn't include start times like the shared link does. I frantically edited. Good to know it's working now. If you want to mess with settings (for example, to slow the play down to half speed or quarter speed) open it in youtube.

Here's the video. When I'm prepping for these I set it to 1080p and tinker with different speeds.

The redactions were my decision. I look at everything through the lens of competitive advantage. If he said something like "the call was a swim move" then I'd leave it, since anybody can google that and find a video of how to execute one. In football, that's common knowledge. When it's not, I think it's best to keep it out
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I can definitely do that next||
I can definitely do that next week. Thanks for the feedback.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks! That's a cool idea.||
Thanks! That's a cool idea. Not sure I'll be able to pull it off, but I'll give it a try and aim for including it next week.
In the meantime, there's a lot more on the Five Factors in Bill Connelly's Michigan adv stats profile. That's where basically all the above data is from and I highly recommend sifting through it when you have a minute: http://www.footballstudyhall.com/pages/2016-michigan-advanced-statistical-profile
|12 weeks 1 day ago||It was autogenerated in||
It was autogenerated in google sheets but needs to be edited. That's something I'll be tinkering with next week.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||My take is less optimistic.||
My take is less optimistic. It sounded to me like they'll use the entirety of the week to evaluate where he's at and make a deicison after practice Friday or on Saturday.
