Alabama also has a much stronger record of success. We're not in that territory yet. We played one elite team last year and got killed. I say Sparty was a fluke and we should have won that game, but even accepting the loss it was a very even affair. And they were demolished by Alabama. It's fair, in my mind, to ask if Michigan would have been similarly beaten against them. In that context - meaning OSU, Alabama, setting the benchmark as top-tier teams - the #3 ranking does seem too high.
Alabama switched QBs, sure. But they had a bone-crushing OL and the Heisman winner at RB. M doesn't have that, based on what's coming back. In order to be truly elite, M is going to need outstanding QB play. Straight verticals to Chesson that connect, deep corner routes on both sides of the field, that sweet square-in that Chesson and Rudock ran twice last year, all of it. That stuff will be open even if the running game isn't top notch, and would allow Michigan to beat truly elite teams even if the defense has breakdowns. But that type of QB play is definitely a question.
Lacking a great OL or running game - remember we abandoned it completely at the end of the year -, M needs great QB play to be elite. I think we can win the conference with incremental improvement over last year. But we won't beat Alabama (or whoever beats Alabama) in the playoff without it.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Has there been a write-up yet||
Has there been a write-up yet on this site re. Don Brown's D, detailing this specific lack of Buck? I know there have been a few write-ups on his philosophy in general and Seth's review of his scheme against Clemson. In those write-ups he's generally said the scheme is the same as what M ran last year.
But I'd really like to know how the Buck's disappearance affects the D and personnel. Losing RJS and Ojemudia was a concern this year. To the extent it's been discussed, the thought was Charlton to Buck but dubious if he could cover the flat in pass pro. If that's out the window, I imagine we have to be running a 4-2-5. No way they push Peppers back to a true safety in order to bring another LB onto the field.
But where does that push Kemp, who was specifically a Buck?

I disagree. The constant targeting of him despite the low likelihood of actually getting a completion put their offenses behind the sticks. OC's hate to be behind the sticks. I think it was a case of looking at the run defense, noping out of that, seeing the high safety, figuring that the only way to make hay was to "break" Lewis. I think OC's continually challenged their guys, saying the only way they could win was to beat Lewis. Didn't work. Not much did unless you had a spread like Indiana or OSU, sure. But throwing at Lewis most often meant 2nd & 10 went to 3rd &10 or 3rd & 10 went to punt. Go at the other corner with your second best receiver, or try the LB's with a TE. Lewis passed all the tests, he should have been avoided.

Clemson a real threat for Gary, lots of things on their side. But no one he's talked to has been willing to say Clemson is going to be the pick. No gut feel, but still Michigan.
Nothing he has heard on Onwenu would convince him he's going anywhere but Michigan. "There would be a lot of people" very surprised if it was anything but Michigan. That probably means he talked to Wilcher. Never know how it can shake out (rememebr Weber... actually no don't), but still feels Michigan.

I don't think that's true. Godin spent much of the early part of the season starting in front of Wormley, with mgobloggers asking why is the back-up starting the game? He wasn't the back-up, he was the starter. It was a platoon/rotation and the starter distinction didn't really matter bc they always got equal snaps and sometimes the second guy got more. But Godin played a lot early and played quite well, was hurt, and probably played hurt late. Was his good play a function of poor OL's early and he wasn't as effective in conference play? Possibly, but injury really sapped him late, he was a shadow of his earlier year self.
Strobel came in for rotation snaps when Glasgow went dowm, and he stuggled.

I'd rather not have a negative back and forth as well, but a meaningful one is always appreciated. I don't think it's unreasonable to define DC as running the defense. I've perhaps naively assumed everyone has that same view. As an extreme example, RR was a head coach, apparently had almost no involvement with the Defense (except meddling/demaning 3-3-5). Would his head coaching experience qualify him for a Power 5 DC spot? I don't think so. By that logic, I'd say just by virtue of being a head coach, one is not qualified to be a DC.
Yes Hoke is different, he did an excellent job here on the DL and he has experience in various defensive positions over his career. But that's different than being a DC, and "coaching the defense", which gameplanning and playcalling.
Again I wasn't trying to disparage Hoke. He was my guy for a long time as well.

2) You're not refuting any point I'm making. I did not disparage any of his prior experience.
The claim I'm making is that he hasn't coached a defense as the defensive coordinator. This is true. Calling people asinine in a reasoned discussion makes you and your argument appear weak.
Hoke defenders as defensive as those who do the same for RR. I root for Hoke, I always will, just as I do for RR. I've met both. They gave everything they had. But they both failed, and I'm glad neither is coach at Michigan.
My pointing out that he has never been a DC (with the exception of Yorktown, Indiana High) does not mean I'm belittling the man. I'm stating a truth that's relevant to the topic of him taking over DC at Oregon. Your overreaction is an indication that you probably went all-in on Hoke, and having a difficult time accepting his failure. I did the former as well, but I'm long past the latter.

Of course. DL coaches don't have coordinators. They report to a coordinator.
And you can't take all credit for the defense's success away from him because he had a coordinator. Chip Kelly had an OC too, do we not give him any credit for Oregon's offense?
First, I haven't taken all the credit away from him. I'd give him a lot of credit for hiring Mattison. Second, the comparison here is a poor one: Kelly was an OC for 7 years at New Hampshire and 2 years at Oregon; Hoke was a DC never.

They weren't very good vs. OSU (burned completely in the first half, overthrown by Barrett), Iowa (burned on the lone long ball I saw them throw), Michigan (lots of opportunities lost in that game in terms of deeper throws, was before Rudock became the deep ball assassin he was in the later half of the year), Nebraska (err'body open all day), and others.
But S&P has them ranked #10 in Passing D, even above Michigan's (though Sparty is rated poorly on passing downs). I think more teams should have gone deep more often, but I always think that against MSU. Data says they're not that bad. But I'd bet a good QB and good receivers can make a lot of hay against those DB's. M has the latter, let's hope they come up with the former.

If your agrument is that not as many people make that argument anymore, you should state that. But this is not what a strawman is. And when you falsely call people out for utlizing a strawman, you should take care that you do not use a strawman to do so.

"The OP makes it sound like people think we'd have won multiple national championships if Casteel had been hired in 2008, which I haven't seen anyone make any assertion even close to that in about 6 years."
Talk about a strawman. The OP doesn't mention anything about multiple national championships. He clearly states that he's arguing against The number one excuse for Rich's failure in A2", that being his inability to hire the guy he wanted in Casteel. I agree with him that for RR defenders, this is their primary argument. RR firing him today does refute that argument, because he couldn't make it work with Casteel in Arizona.
"but if you paint the vast majority of the users as thinking that way then you're just another Mike Valenti."

He didn't shut anything down, given he was considering and reconsidering his decision literally hours before and the day of NSD.
He had a hard choice, OSU made a great pitch, Harbaugh was someone he'd only known for a few weeks. Seemed like he was 50-50 and made a decision.

1) the backup immediately looked more urgent than Hackenberg, more energy. Hack always looks lethargic, by his body language he seemed to be complaining about his OL. After every sack looks of disappointnent, anger, or whining. Contrast all of that with Gardner, who played hurt, led, and always gave credit to his teammates for trying their best. He sucked it up after very play and never gave and indication of blaming anyone. And he had every right to do so. Champion heart.
2) this is a small thing to many I'm sure, but it meant a lot to me: immediately after the loss, they zoomed in on Hackenberg and he was smiling and pointing at someone on the Georgia sideline on the way to shake hands. Evidently a friend and harmless enough. But this is immediately after the hail mary was batted down and the other camera shots were either of Georgia players storming the field euphoric or his teammates kneeling on the ground in exhausted defeat. PSU fought back and really put everything into winning that game. When they lost the players were crushed. Except Hackenberg, he didn't give a shit. You'll notice he also didn't thanks his teammates. Wouldn't want him on my pro team.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||M doesn't need him to create||
M doesn't need him to create on his own, Beilein's offense has never required that. He needs to finish when he's dished from the outside, and he needs to play competitive D without fouling out. Somewhere just below average rebounding wold be fine. That's all this team needs. We got crushed against Xavier/Uconn/SMU because we got none of that from the 5.
Beilein's team is built around shooters first, that's the entire point. Then he can take advantage of that with plays that get the ball inside for easy finishes. When playing MSU/Purdue/Maryland, those finishes will be under more duress than they were against Illinois and PSU, but what you're talking about - hit or threaten from the outside and let that open up the inside - is exactly what they want to do. He has a team full of shooters that he's recruited to make sure if any one or two cool off, others can pick it up. Will everyone shoot poorly some nights? Of course, and they may lose to someone they shouldn't. The same thing will happen to Duke or Xavier or Maryland when their players are cold at executing whatever styles those teams practice.
An effective Donnal, and backed up by serviceable Doyle or Wagner, and this team's ceiling goes from bubble (when 5 was a disaster weeks ago) to outside chance at B1G title.

Edelman appears out, helping Amendola. Brown will be the starting RB for a team that should dominate, but literally off the street and has scored zero points this season.

Very surprised to see they beat UK, good win for the B1G, but I'm not sure how they did it. They must have played much harder than they against NIU.

But just a little futher info. on Johnson, his ratings have improved since the Michigan offer and commitment.
First, Touch The Banner really liked him even back then, giving him a 77 rating, with Magnus saying he wouldn't be surprised if someone told him he was a four star. Physical player with speed, good in coverage.
Beyond that, he went from unranked at Scout, ESPN, and 247 and a two star at Rivals, to a 3 star on all sites. In fact 247 has him as the #25 ILB in the country. That's just a few spots down from where they have Devin Bush Jr. (#18), and a guy we let walk away in David Reese (#21). Good reason to be excited about this kid.

I've been a little concerned about Bush's size as well. On film he doesn't look physically beastly to me, and when I've seen subsequent pictures of him, he seems a bit undersized.
I have no expert opinion on his game, I assume the instincts and toughness overshadow that concern, if it's one at all. It's just that we had Morgan and he was good, but great blockers got the better of him in big games. Presumably Bush Jr. has better speed and athleticism as well, given he didn't inherit the throwback gene.

There may be a bit of a statement if they move a guy out of their top XXX lists. So if Scout moves them out of their Scout 300 or 247 moves them out of their Top 247. But even here I'm not concerned.
If a guy's a #93 and drops out of the ranking entirely, that's a thing.

Durkin is not running a spread because it provides a cover for lower level recruits or any other inherent advantage.

Here's just a few blindingly obvious ones:
Pac12 championship will be USC vs Stanford, pro style vs pro. RichRod's Arizona and crosstown AZ State, the spreadsiest of spreadsies, each went 6-6.
SEC championship is Alabama vs Florida, pro vs pro. The next tier of top finishers in that conference conference were Georgia, Ole Miss, Arkansas, and LSU. Pro, spread, pro, pro. Auburn, which had had acess to elite talent forevs, went an ugly 6-6.
ACC perennial powers are FSU and Clemson, pro and pro. I'm tired of this silly argument so I'll stop.
I don't dislike the spread, love watching it. What I despise is the idea that any system provides an inherent advantage over another. There's no data to support this.

For the purposes of this discussion, lower tier means lower level recruiting. Many on the board are assuming Md won't be able to bring in top level recruits, so they need an advantage in offensive scheme. I think that's silly. But the first part us true, they won't be able to recruit like M, OSU, or PSU. It's possible that they could, by great evaluation and some luck, bring in NFL talent like Sparty and Wiscy.

They could have brought the safety down. They could have run blitzed. They could have sent everybody but the the DB's 1-on-1 with WR's and crashed the line every play.

If your LB's aren't that good and the DL is weakened, you're not going to stop Elliot.
Brian mentioned it in the Indiana review - he saw the team get gashed, was hoping M didn't respond because they were holding the response for OSU. Turns out they didn't have one. That's extremely, extremely disappointing and a worry for the entire staff - head coach included.

I've been a fan of Bolden, but again he hasn't lived up to his spring hype. Earlier in the year he was popping OL a bit more, and I was hopeful he'd made that improvement. But he's really reverted in the last several games, may be injured. He just doesn't lay the wood on people like he should. This was evident all the way back to high school video though.
What he does do very well is be vocal and get the team in the right set. This was critical in spring and fall ball with a new DC. It's probably less so now given the D doesn't seem lost much. But to the other guy's point, it's hard to surpass a starter of any type who's doing OK. Coaches make changes when the back-ups are just charging and killing it in practice, or the starter is lacking. It's very possible that Gedeon does some things better, but isn't as vocal or knowledgable about the defense.
Also hard to make changes when you've got the #1 D in the county by some accounts, though that didn't seem to prevent the Ross-to-Buck move over RJS.

Football is an instinct game but with a lot of assignments, and those can change. It's played by humans who don't always apply the correct odds to every specific outcome. That's what writers do with the benefit of review. LB's play the majority of their snaps responsible for run first. In game play, it's just human nature to draw up in reaction to what looks like a run. OC's know this, especially in college.
