So my question is: How did the warehouse get so full of fireworks without someone lighting a match already? If the match had been lit a while ago, it wouldn't be such an explosion.
It all boils down to the same thing. Right now the program seems to be imploding, but it shouldn't have reached this point. It just seems like no one really did anything until now, and now they're doing everything within their might.

From what I've seen, the chances are near zero. But sometimes teams go on crazy winning streaks. The 2000 New York Giants won five straight games to make the playoffs...
This team has plenty of talent to pull it off, but it's obviously very unlikely to occur.

I guess that's kind of the issue, though, isn't it? If it's bad enough to do all this stuff (rally, petition, boycott, etc.), then it's been bad enough to do SOME of it for a while. So why do all of it right now?
And if it's not bad enough to do it all right now, then let's not go overboard.
If you have a marriage going south, the logical first step might be mediation. Instead, we're jumping straight to mediation, counseling, locking each other out of the house, and calling the divorce lawyers all at once.

You're not calling out my opinions. You're flat-out lying about what I've said.
I'm not responding to you after this post. You've clearly got an axe to grind, and you're clearly incapable of sticking to the truth. I'm not going to waste my time with irrational people who spew lie after lie.
|15 hours 49 min ago||Regarding your first part,||
Regarding your first part, who are ESPN shows and articles referencing? MGOBLOG! And Brian Cook! That's kind of my whole point. And if ESPN picks up on it, that makes it more likely that ABC (both owned by the same company) will pick up on it. And if ABC picks up on it, then NBC, CBS, or whoever might pick up the ball and run with it.
Brian knows that he influences a lot of readers and fans. I don't necessarily think he's influencing them in a positive direction at this point, though.
|15 hours 52 min ago||That second part is kind of||
That second part is kind of the point, though. There are numerous ways to effect change. It seems like we're going for them all at once - petition to fire Dave Brandon, rally to fire Dave Brandon, calling for Hoke's firing, boycotting games, etc. We're essentially burning down the whole program instead of taking a step-by-step approach.

The 100,000+ streak is a good recruiting tool, and it's a promise that those kids will be playing in front of huge crowds every Saturday. I think that's one thing that plays well to kids who want to be in big-time environments. It also shows that fans will consistently stick by you.
And yeah...it's window-dressing, clearly, because fickle fans post stupid s*** on the internet all the time. Some of the stuff that has gone on, especially in the last week, makes our fan base look like a bunch of stupid chumps who will cannibalize each other, the coaches, the athletic director, and anyone else who we think stands in our way of returning to the glory days.

Just because something CAN be written doesn't mean it should.
Brian has a lot of influence as the owner/editor/creator of the largest college sports website on the internet. If he starts looking at new coaching candidates, other bloggers, fans, prognosticators, analysts, networks, etc. will, too. Then the calls for Hoke's head will amplify, the distractions to the team will amplify, etc. I don't think we should underestimate the ripple effect that Brian can have.
As such, I'm a wee bit disappointed in Brian's various campaigns and statements about not going to the game, essentially trying to ruin Michigan's streak of 100,000+ fans, etc. Trying to save Michigan tradition by ruining Michigan tradition is not a quality plan, in my opinion. It's a bit too self-serving.
If "The team, the team, the team" is going to be our motto around Michigan football, then I don't see how this helps.
|23 hours 5 min ago||Wrong. MGrowOld stated in||
MGrowOld stated in another thread that there WAS a head injury.

Hah. First of all, it was a joke. Second, if you think my "objectification of women" is bad, you should get to know some coaches sometime. I spend at least six days a week with them. I knew/know coaches who cheat on their wives, drink and drive, do illicit drugs, hit their players, verbally abuse their players, etc. You're going to have a very small pool of coaches to choose from if you want perfect angels in every aspect of their lives.

Agreed. Sometimes it takes a situation like this for protocols to be put into place. I would be surprised if this situation does not force other programs to review how they would handle similar situations. I doubt athletic directors around the country are saying, "Well, um, we're just going to count on the coaches to see hard hits. Next up? Uniformz!"
|1 day 18 hours ago||What I asked was "Do you know||
What I asked was "Do you know there was a head injury?"
You didn't. Nobody (fans, anyway) knew until last night. That's not nit-picking. You were making an assumption. It happened to be that you were right, but even Brandon's statement says that it took multiple evaluations to reach that conclusion.
|1 day 18 hours ago||It's entirely possible that||
It's entirely possible that he didn't see the hit. You can't watch all 22 football players on the field at all times, and the ball was away and gone. Cockran was flagged for the late hit, which supports the idea that someone may have moved his eyes away from the QB and followed the flight of the ball. That's why there's a referee stationed in the backfield to watch for things like that.
|1 day 18 hours ago||On the contrary, there's||
On the contrary, there's nothing to backtrack from. At no point have I reached any sweeping conclusions about the topic. The main thrust of what I've been saying is that "We don't know exactly what happened, and there are multiple possible explanations."

You continue to misrepresent what I said.
I have nothing further to say to you about the subject.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Just like many things,||
Just like many things, westwardwolverine is making things up. I have never, ever, ever said that Shane Morris did not get hit in the head. What I said was that he got hit in the lower part of the facemask, but that the majority of the blow was to the upper chest/shoulder area. The freeze frame posted in this thread supports that.
Again, I have NEVER said that he didn't take a hit to the head/helmet.
|2 days 6 hours ago||I'm going to watch the game.||
I'm going to watch the game. Because I'm not a whiny pansy like so many other Michigan fans. This is the team and the program that I root for. Not just when they're winning or when they're playing the music in the stadium that I like.

|2 days 16 hours ago||The difference might be the||
The difference might be the person you're interpreting as the "ref." I believe Hoke said that the actual Referee wouldn't allow Michigan to get an injury timeout. He then said the Line Judge offered him an injury timeout.
Of course, there's always the chance to use a team timeout, but obviously Hoke didn't want to burn one at that point.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Isn't that the issue, though?||
Isn't that the issue, though? It's not worth all this discussion if he's out there on a bum ankle. Plenty of people have tried to play on gimpy ankles. The big issue that's causing such a ruckus is the head thing.
If you want to insist that this would be such a big story if the limp is the only potential issue, then I think you're very misguided.

It's nice to see that you're so rational.
|2 days 16 hours ago||WTF?||
Did you not see where I said that the helmet slammed "mostly into his chest"? I have acknowledged elsewhere in this same comment stream that it hit him in the bottom of his facemask, but most of the force ended up on Morris's shoulder/chest.
|2 days 18 hours ago||It's called sarcasm. The||
It's called sarcasm. The point is that play isn't going to be stopped and/or the trainers aren't going to check every time there's a hard hit.
|2 days 18 hours ago||And did you see on the play||
And did you see on the play where he returned that he was limping so badly that he could barely hand off the ball?
|2 days 18 hours ago||Sure, I've seen the play.||
Sure, I've seen the play. Numerous times. You should have noticed that the helmet hits the bottom of Morris's facemask and then makes very solid contact with his chest.

Interesting. So you can "prove" he had a head injury by watching him on the field?
And we're the idiots?

Kansas barely beat an FCS team, scored 3 points combined against Texas/Duke, and beat a Thomas Rawls-less CMU team. Meanwhile, they were 3-9 in 2013 and 1-11 in 2012.
Not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison.
|2 days 20 hours ago||I'm sorry, but did you *read*||
I'm sorry, but did you *read* the OP? It says that the trainer said "Yeah, he can go." If you want to say that the words in the OP are a lie, that's one thing. But you have to at least consider that what's being stated is the truth.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Okay. Well, I guess there||
Okay. Well, I guess there should be an injury timeout after every play so 22 trainers can rush onto the field and check every player for a concussion. Because there are about 10 collisions going on during every play that aren't focused on by the camera.
|2 days 20 hours ago||I'm not claiming there wasn't||
I'm not claiming there wasn't a head injury.
I'm claiming that I don't know. I'm also claiming that you don't know, either.
|2 days 20 hours ago||A trainer is allowed to||
A trainer is allowed to diagnose a concussion. If there is no concussion, he can be cleared to play.
Once a concussion has been diagnosed, he would need medical clearance from a doctor (presumably a neurologist) to return.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Or they knew down on the||
Or they knew down on the field that the only reason he stumbled was because of his ankle injury, which is entirely possible.
I'm not saying that IS the case. But watching it on TV doesn't tell the whole story. I've had players lay on the ground for a bit after a play. They look like they're concussed...and it turns out they got the wind knocked out of them because they landed on the football. There can be multiple explanations, and the people on the field generally have a better idea of what happened than we do.
|2 days 20 hours ago||That's an interesting take,||
That's an interesting take, considering it came from somebody who was insulting Brady Hoke's language skills...
So let me get this straight:
1. Brady Hoke uses football language you can't understand.
2. You insult him.
3. I explain it for you in a somewhat demeaning way.
4. You call me an "asshat" for being rude.
Can you find where the negativity started?

Yes, he is. They don't need to fly in Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
|2 days 20 hours ago||It probably means that he was||
It probably means that he was trying to get an injury timeout for Morris so Hoke wouldn't have to burn one. The ref wouldn't let him. Finally, the line judge said that he could.
|2 days 21 hours ago||What head injury? Are you||
What head injury? Are you certain there was one?
|2 days 21 hours ago||There are some obvious||
There are some obvious explanations for that, including that the account described in the OP was one gathered together after the fact and not something he was totally aware of at the time. A head coach is not back on the bench for all trainer/player interactions.

I could probably come up with 100 threads more interesting and/or more related to football than the drivel that has infested the board over the last 24+ hours.

Nobody's suggesting you should. That doesn't mean you should stop rooting for the players. This isn't about you, and it's not about Brandon, and it's not about Hoke. Being a fan of Michigan (or any program) is about the team. Michigan fans aren't going to help the situation by turning their backs on the program.

It's Jimmy's and Joe's, not X's and O's. All the services thought highly of Derrick Green. He's very capable of making plays if the holes are there. Right now, it doesn't matter who's in at running back - they're all looking mediocre, partly because the OL is mediocre.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I really think Funchess's||
I really think Funchess's ankle is hurt, and he was trying to avoid contact altogether. If you see how he reacts when people get near his ankle at the end of the play, he did everything in his power to keep his ankle out of it. I'm not saying that's a perfect excuse (he doesn't appear to be the absolute toughest guy around), but I guess I would rather have a healthy Funchess than a Funchess who's sidelined because he rolled his ankle (again) while blocking on a bubble screen.

I don't really understand the -3 for Green on play #2. He goes playside on an inside run, and the guy who gets him is a blitzing corner. Darboh makes no attempt to block the blitzing corner, and running backs aren't always going to see blitzes from corners pre-snap. That's a good play on Utah's part, but I don't see a whole lot that Green could have done with that.

If it doesn't mean that, then you're saying Hoke should have until the end of the year. And if at the end of the year, Hoke is 10-2, then we don't need a new coach at all.
So I think you're talking out of both sides of your mouth.

|1 week 4 days ago||I think there are a lot of||
I think there are a lot of factors at play, and perhaps I'll take heat for some of them.
First of all, the weather is an issue. There are constant seven-on-seven practices and tournaments in the south. That's not the case in Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, etc. At least in some states (Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Texas, South Carolina I believe, etc.), spring football practices are allowed, so teams get 15-ish extra practices in the spring while Ohio/Michigan/Illinois players are sitting on their butts, just lifting weights, or playing baseball/running track.
Second, I get the feeling that southern schools are more liberal with the rules. With closer geographical locations, Player X from the middle of nowhere in Alabama knows that he can get/get away with certain things at Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss, etc. because his friend or cousin goes there and has passed the word along.
Third, I think the economy in the south leads some people to "look for a way out." When a kid hits middle school and looks like a star football player, I think doors open up and I think that kid gets a little extra motivation/encouragement because that could be mommy and daddy's paycheck or at least a way to pay your way through college. I don't think that's such a motivating factor in the north except for in certain places (such as inner cities like Detroit, Chicago, etc.).
|1 week 5 days ago||Good stuff, Space Coyote. I||
Good stuff, Space Coyote. I would just like to reiterate that changing personnel and formations makes it very difficult to key some of this stuff. All the diagrams have the team in an I-formation, but Michigan has the personnel right now to make all this stuff work, partly because of guys like Chesson and Darboh, who aren't afraid to block. It's somewhat rare that you can get a 190-ish pounder to block like Chesson does, and it helps that we have a couple fullbacks and tight ends who can get the job done now that Butt is back.

Hayes looked fast against a tired Miami defense. He is probably the quickest back on the team, but he's not fast or particularly effective. I think Michigan is using him nicely as a third down back. He's not as good of a blocker as Vincent Smith, but he can be used similarly.

And frankly - while we're talking about things we don't like - I don't like the insinuation that there's some kind of racial prejudice in my statement, as if a white dude who body-slams a school employee or hits his girlfriend would be given a free pass.

Another interesting thing regarding Manning is that after the Appalachian State game, one of the coaches - Hoke or Mattison - said that Raymon Taylor probably played his best game ever. So that guy has his best game ever, he gets hurt on the first series or two the next week, and the defensive backs were poor without Taylor, the nickel corner (Peppers), and potentially their starting safety (Delano Hill). Hill was the presumed leader for the position going into fall camp, so Michigan was basically missing 3 defensive starters - plus whatever Desmond Morgan is - for the Notre Dame game.

|3 weeks 14 hours ago||As a coach, I will say that||
As a coach, I will say that mid-game adjustments are not as easy as they sound. You have a lot of different things that you can throw at a team, but you practice against certain things all week. You have your starters getting a lot of reps doing certain things. If they fail once or twice to defend a certain play or player, you sometimes chalk it up to "Hey, everyone makes mistakes" or "He'll fix it next time." You have to let players make mistakes.
Putting in a different package is not ideal. It usually includes getting out of your base defense, moving people around, and/or playing players who aren't as experienced or didn't get as many reps during the week. It's not a magical Band-Aid. There are some inherent flaws in going that route.
My experience with different "packages" on defense is that they are short-term fixes. Rarely do they work for an extended period of time. You can change alignments or change your front or go from a 4-3 to a 4-2-5 or a 3-4, but there are coaches on the other sideline, too. If they see you going to Bear to try to stop the run, they're going to run some man coverage beaters to move the ball and/or get you back in your base defense. If they see you going to a nickel to stop the pass, they're going to run at your weakness.
I think the bottom line is that a fix like that might have made it 24-0 instead of 31-0, but you can't scrap your whole game plan and expect that to totally flip the script of a 31-0 loss.

I never said he was horrible.
But in a game when Michigan is up 52-14, there's no need to gamble on a throw like that. That shows a lack of maturity, in my opinion. It was his turn to play, and by golly, he wanted to throw it, regardless of what the defense gave him. He's not horrible. He's just immature (as a passer, not as a person).
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Personally, I think Gardner's||
Personally, I think Gardner's interceptions were a result of him pressing to make a play. So yes and no. I don't expect a quarterback to be down 21-0 or 28-0 or 31-0 in the second half and not take some gambles. You have to gamble. Were they the right plays? Obviously not. But if they worked, they would have been the right plays. Brett Favre made a career out of doing stuff like that. It's one of the things you have to live with if you're not going to be able to run the ball, score on defense, or stop an opponent's offense.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Personally, I think||
Personally, I think Hecklinski has done a GREAT job. If we're talking about the job they've done at Michigan, Hecklinski is probably the most successful guy. We've had good blocking from our wide receivers, we haven't had a ton of issues with drops, he helped turn Jeremy Gallon into a record-setting receiver, he helped Junior Hemingway develop into an NFL player, and he has helped turn Devin Funchess into a very good receiver.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Countess actually did a good||
Countess actually did a good job of recovering on that play...but the problem isn't his recovery. The problem is that he let Fuller run 95% of his route completely unmolested. He should have slowed him down off the line.

The interception he threw against Appalachian State was not because of anybody but Morris. The defense wasn't closing in on him, and the receiver didn't screw it up.

Miller is doing a much better job of figuring out the OL's assignments this year. I honestly believe that. The issue is that he got overpowered by Jarron Jones.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||I thought Michigan tried to||
I thought Michigan tried to adjust to the ticky-tack pass interference calls on the second(?) drive by playing off a little more. I also thought Michigan moved from the quick screens to the bubble once they established the run a little bit.
I don't think Nussmeier did enough to keep the defense off of Gardner. He should have used more half-rolls, sprintouts, slip screens, tunnel screens, etc. So I'm not saying the coaching is perfect. But I don't think the coaching is as bad as people think.
Keep in mind that Michigan outgained Notre Dame's high-powered offense. The 289 yards isn't anything spectacular, but it should be enough to eke out at least a couple scores. I really think it's just sort of an unlucky coincidence that Michigan couldn't score a touchdown, that Wile's foot slipped on his second FG attempt, etc.

The only thing that really matters is winning. If we win, nobody will care if Hoke tells the media everything about injuries, the OL lineup, etc. When we lose, it suddenly becomes important.
So no, we aren't important. We are observers. We have nothing to do with the team itself, and my knowledge of injury situations will not affect whether I buy tickets, whether I buy merchandise, etc. It's a petty thing to whine about for self-entitled fans.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||...except they had Peppers on||
...except they had Peppers on the travel roster and worked him out prior to the game (which is why he was dressed on the sideline), so nobody could have known on Friday that he was 100% not playing.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||1. I don't think that's||
1. I don't think that's entirely accurate. Logan Tuley-Tillman was a developmental prospect, and Ben Braden - a potential LT prospect - is ahead of a guy like Chris Fox, who tore his ACL at the end of his senior year. That's just the way it goes sometimes. Magnuson could probably play LT, but they want to shore up the interior.
2. We did stop the inside run. Notre Dame only ran for a little over 2 yards/carry, IIRC. We also did not get beaten on seam routes very often. I remember Robinson beating Stribling, but I also remember just about every team - including Michigan - hitting a seam route once or twice a game. You can't stop every play every time.
3. Gardner has to throw off his back foot when he has linebackers and defensive tackles in his face. Or at least you have to understand that quarterbacks are going to do this when they get hit a lot. That's not a major technical flaw on Gardner - that's an offensive line issue.
5. I don't give a s*** what information Hoke gives to the media. They/we are not required to know everything. You and I are not important.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I agree with pretty much||
I agree with pretty much everything here. A standard practice in cover 1 or cover 0 is to align on the inside shoulder of the receiver and to control him with your inside hand. Sometimes you see cover 1 corners get called for lining up in the neutral zone, but Michigan's corners are a couple yards off the ball. For example, on the fade route for a touchdown, Countess was slightly of the LOS and did not even touch the receiver until they were in the endzone. It was actually pretty decent coverage considering he didn't jam him off the line of scrimmage.
I don't really agree with Countess's lack of makeup speed - he's not a burner, but he can run with the vast majority of college receivers. He just used poor technique several times throughout the game. I'm not sure if that's coming from Hoke or Mattison or Manning, but I have a hard time believing they don't know how to coach corners. Countess just wasn't doing it properly.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Our defense was decent. I||
Our defense was decent. I agree that you can't expect to shut them down. Michigan does need to win more one-on-one battles, though. They didn't generate much of a pass rush, and they were beaten regularly in the secondary (although Michigan still didn't allow big plays). Most of the predicted scores I saw had Notre Dame between 24-35 points, so we expected them to score. The problem was that our offense couldn't finish drives.

I think it's pretty clear that neither conclusion is clear. Smith is better at some things, and Green is better at some things. To me, it really depends on the OL. A good OL means Green can get the ball and do more things on the second and third level. A crappy OL means Smith needs to see the ball so he can at least gain 2 or 3 yards by breaking a couple tackles on every play.

Seth, I sincerely apologize if you thought I was pointing that out as one of the unnecessary posts. That was just the first "catchy" column title that popped into my head. I actually do like it.

Hokepoints is football-related, so that's the type of stuff I like.
I think you probably know that I would stick to my guns if I intended that to be a shot against Hokepoints, so again, I apologize if that seemed like I don't appreciate the time and effort it takes to put those posts together. I should have been more selective.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||Yes. Morris could have pulled||
Yes. Morris could have pulled the ball and thrown it to Darboh. It might have been a tough play, though, since ASU disguised their coverage until late. They were set up with two high safeties, which implies Cover 2 with the cornerback possibly sitting in the flat and jumping that screen, somewhat like Countess did to them.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Neither one is a speed demon.||
Neither one is a speed demon. And yes, Green got caught, too. But there's a noticeable difference in their acceleration, and Green has slightly better top-end speed. It was an outside zone play where Green got his 62-yard run. IIRC, the coaches didn't even bother running outside zone with Smith.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Hah. I didn't even think||
Hah. I didn't even think about that whole Norfleet/Morgan thing, Brian, but we are in agreement.
As for the running back debate, I really think who plays more should depend on how the offensive line shakes out. If they keep tearing holes in the defense, then I think Green can be more of a home run threat. For those who are saying Smith has better vision, I agree . . . but you may (or may not) have noticed that Green's vision and feet improved as the game wore on. He cut back behind Cole on an IZ run designed to go right, and his second huge run included picking up his feet to hop past a diving defensive back.
Smith is a guy who can be a short-yardage back or even the main guy if Michigan can't create holes anywhere. Watching him on his long run was a little funny, though, because he was absolutely waiting to get caught once he got in the secondary. You can see him glancing every which way but forward and covering up the football, while numerous ASU defenders converge. Green is no Carlos Brown in the speed department, but he can stress a defense with his speed - one broken tackle, stumble, block, or cut could send him into the endzone.

|4 weeks 3 days ago||good memory, poor assumptions||
I have nothing against 3-star recruits. I just don't think Johnson is very good. Over the past several years, my picks for "best under-the-radar recruit" in each class have included Jake Ryan, Desmond Morgan, and Willie Henry. Maurice Ways is my pick in the 2014 class, and he wowed some people in the fall scrimmage a couple weeks ago. I'd say that's a pretty good track record.
As for Green, I didn't like him AS MUCH as several other running backs in the 2013 class. That included Justin Davis and Ty Isaac - both of whom went to USC and had success - and Keith Ford, who went to Oklahoma (9 carries 51 yards, 2 touchdowns, 4 catches for 65 yards yesterday). At this point I don't think it's clear which running back(s) turned out to be better, but even in retrospect, I wouldn't change that stance. I still don't think Green is a truly elite running back, and the issues I had with his vision/feet are things that have been repeated over and over again in this thread as things that Michigan fans don't like about him and/or reasons why they think Smith is better. All that being said, Green had a better senior year than junior year, which adjusted my projection of him upward.

Don't get me wrong - eventually, there were some giant holes for both backs. But if you look at Green's first series or so, there was really nowhere to go. When Smith came in, suddenly there were a couple gaping holes. After about the first three series, just about any run play got blown wide open.

I remember one time when Green ran into his blocker; I don't remember a second time.
Regardless, I don't think either one is a home run threat like Carlos Brown or my beloved Brandon Minor, even. If they get past the defense, there's a good chance that both would get caught. However, I think Green gets to top speed quicker and is a step faster overall. From what I saw today (and this is nothing new), I think Smith is an inside zone guy, whereas Green is a power and outside zone guy.

Yes, but the choice here seems to be:
a) Go to an accomplished school with coaches I like who can get me to the NFL.
b) Go to a local school where my family can cheer for me.
I don't really care whether choice "A" means South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, or Michigan. If I'm looking for success (whether I'm the kid or the parent), that should be my pick.
Anyway, I won't hate on the kids either way. It's up to them. I just don't understand when people let things like "my family's close" get in the way, unless there's a medical situation. For example, I could understand if Bryan Mone stayed close to home because of his brother. I don't know of any similar situations with someone like Roseboro or the numerous other players who weigh the Home vs. Football conundrum.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||That's somewhat true, but||
That's somewhat true, but going to better schools, having better facilities/programs, having better coaching, etc. should lead to more opportunities. If you are a senior at Michigan, you are virtually guaranteed an UFA spot on a team if you don't get drafted. There's no way to tell, but I'm sure there have been some quality players at lesser schools who have received fewer chances or have not reached their potential because of where they played.

If he wants to make a career out of football - which he's probably planning to do at that size - then Michigan is the obvious choice.
