Mattison's D is a lot to learn, especially for a true freshman. As we move forward with stocking quality recruits all over the team, you're going to see freshmen get less playing time.

Any chance of Dymonte grabbing the open safety job?

My argument is we are going to see much much less of those stinkers in year 2 as the personnel grows up and continues to rep the same fundamental plays day in and day out. Four yards on 1st down leads to a 6 yard slant leads to a play action pass leads to a throwback screen leads to a bomb.
This year it was a TFL on 1st down leads to an incompletion leads to 3rd and long.

PSU we ended up putting up 40. MSU's senior laden defense at home, 7 years in the making vs an offense in year 1 of WCO isn't a fair fight. Sorry. if you want it to be a fair fight, let the coaches stay where they are and keep at it.
As for Nebraska and Iowa, I never said it was OK for the crappy performance we ended up seeing. My point is Michigan runs the plays that they practice, and they've been practicing and slowly improving at the fundamental plays. This is because in order for us to start winning games down the road the way Hoke and Borges want to, they have to sacrifice time and energy to teach it now.

I don't have the time to get into this chicken-and-egg argument with everyone on this site, and you are welcome to not believe me / disagree, but as space coyote has said, there are 2 schools of offensive thought
1) spread: score TD's every snap
#2 is harder to get good at. Well, at least it's harder for a team in transition, like us. As a result, the offensive staff began the long process of having the team practice what they actually want them to do in games. Borges could've come out and done what you saw against OSU week to week, but they chose to focus on the meat and potatoes. Iso, Power, Off tackle right.
Everyone's pissed that Borges suddenly has the offense clicking on saturday. 600 yards, video game numbers. Did he suddenly remember how to score? That's not it. The coaches want the kids to learn the fundamentals, and put them in every gameplan to force them to learn it.
They don't want to trot out their A-grade, cream de la cream stuff for the Minnesotas of the world. They want to be able to rush for 200 yards every week. So that's the logic. Not saying that everyone should swallow that logic...just trying to explain.
Next season I'm pretty confident that they will be able to execute these basic staple plays better. When Michigan holds on to the ball for 30 mins time of possession every game and trots out an elite playmaking defense...
Just wait. Al Borges isn't Jim Bollman or Greg Davis.

There's a reason we repped the plays we did from week to week. It's what the coaches, with their finite practice time, want to get good at.

I'll bet you the roster inherited by Harbaugh was far more prepared for his style of play than what RR left here.
Not to mention that Brady Hoke's worst season so far has been 8-5.

We are looking at the big time costs of transferring our offensive philosophy from Super Spread and Shred Ball -> Hybrid Spread Pro -> Pure West Coast Offense. This year, 2013, Borges said "I'm pulling out the full playbook for good". That's about as difficult and philosophically different as a transition you'll find in football.
That means we're taking a team that doesn't know much of the West Coast offense and forcing them to run it in games, where opposing DCs see all our little flaws on film. No more zone reads, slot receivers, speading the field.
WCO requires playing ball in a phone booth, like Stanford did last night. TEs. Extra OL. Push off the line of scrimmage. Chewing clock like gum. 5 yards a carry, bitches. That requires experience and coordination in a S-Y-S-T-E-M. You cannot just say "our S&C coaches aren't doing enough!!!" because there's a ton more to it than all that.
The defense has already more or less arrived. Mattison has pushed these athletes as far as possible. We just have to wait for them to grow up. I promise you when Taco hits his junior year no one will be bitching about the pass rush.
The offense needs time too. RR had his 3-9 season. This is the equivalent. Wait for the Leap in 2014.

Except there's no Forcier to bail us out this time. So on the field he stays.
Your idea of a intelligent discussion is to focus on the one specifc carry of Devin Gardner's 113 season rush attempts where he pulled up to avoid getting hit.
A season that has seen literally no production from the tailback spot in big games.
And to label him soft because he slid like a QB should.
Because he was a yard away from an invisible line, did not want to get hit for the umpteenth time that day, and was about to become roadkill yet again.

I have a question that Borges will never respond, but here goes: Are the RB coach and the OL coach pulling their weight?
Are you being surrounded by the proper coaches to succeed on offense?
Is the head coach not allowing you to dictate the tempo and playcalling you want to dictate?
Btw, I completely forgot Borges has beaten Meyer before.

Caris Levert was basically HS aged last year and look how well he did in the final four. He's going to be a real solid contributor, no ifs ands or buts. We're about to see the 5th, perhaps least talked about member of the Fresh 5, start to show what he can be. Much more than a bit player.

We got sonned. Whacked. Stunted on, styled on, outcoached and slapped around. Rich Rodriguez would have questioned our toughness on both lines.
I've never read a parental obvservation as damning as the parent who posted on the Scout board wrote about the difference between UM/ MSU in player prep and warmups.
Funk should have lost his job today. Cruel? Naw man. Trotting out Devin Gardner to get the piss beaten out of him on every drive is pitiful. He's probably too sore to even go to class right now.

Losing kids to Kentucky is just reality...basketball is religion down there. We've done really well catching up to the Joneses under Beilein and the athletic department, and I don't think we've hit our ceiling under this regime yet, but guys like Saban and Calipari compete for titles on a regular basis.

Furthermore, that was the "last grasp for anyone remotely talented to come to Michigan" part of the recruiting class. I'd say they did an alright job.
