CBS Power Rankings: Dennis Dodd style
If you're going to put "NEG AWAY" in your post, do us all a favor and don't post in the first place.
|1 week 2 days ago||Big difference on those clips.||
Awuzie has safety help over the top on both of them. He's not playing on an island like Hargreaves was on that play.
|1 week 3 days ago||Significant difference.||
That's a mesh concept (see the Air Raid section here). Perry and the TE (can't tell who from the video) are running drag routes going in the other direction, which is a way to pick off defenders in man coverage. No receivers are blocking downfield, unlike the Colorado play. Colorado's play is a true screen; there's really only one receiver in a route unless you include the guy going deep to run a defender out of the play. The play above has multiple reads, though Darboh is the primary receiver.

When he's projected as a first-round pick or close to it.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'll be honest.||
I'm getting a little concerned some of you may not be clicking on these posts to read the words.
|1 week 4 days ago||It's in the honorable mentions.||
With a parenthetical aside to watch Mason Cole, no less.
|1 week 4 days ago||If you take the time to read the article...||
...this is absolutely doing something about it. I've dealt with similar mental health issues and found this article to be not only inspiring, but very informative.
I'd request that before people rush to post something on this, they actually take the time to examine it. This is a very important and sensitive issue that affects a ton of people; dismissing this as "raising awareness and doing nothing about it" misses the mark by a lot.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yes.||
When doing original, thoughtful reporting like this, absolutely. The B/R stuff we didn't want appearing on the blog was their clickbait slideshow crap and the like; this is in a completely different category.
|1 week 5 days ago||Yeah, we were misled.||
There was a Twitter post going around that made it look like Frost avoided Harbaugh; didn't see the handshake until well after we recorded this yesterday.
The postgame comments still lend credence to the "okay, fine, this guy is kind of a jerk" theory.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Ugh.||
Don't do this, either.
I'm issuing warnings now. Docking points and banhammers will follow soon.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Consider this a warning.||
Don't do this.
I happen to strongly disagree with your interpretation of Johnson's comments; it can mean something as innocuous as him and Partridge not having much contact. Even if it were correct, there's zero need to take shots at a high school kid on his way out. Be better than that; your comment has no place here.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, spread-to-run.||
Sorry, sometimes we forget that stuff like "Oregon Spread" isn't a term that everyone immediately can identify.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not enough data...||
...to compare. Hawaii at least played a Power 5 team their first week. I think UCF has better athletes and a slightly higher talent level, but they're changing systems on both sides of the ball and it showed even against a FCS squad.
I will say I expect a similar outcome.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Seth didn't note this...||
...in the chart, but his criteria for that is a player who's projected to be a potential first-round pick or very close to it. Wormley fits that right now; Glasgow is every bit as good, if not better, as a college player, but at least right now his draft stock isn't as high.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This really needs to stop.||
ESPN "writer" saying Michigan not for real (yet). Where do they get these people?
This definitely didn't need to be a thread in the first place; the premise that Michigan hasn't won big games yet this year is rather hard to argue. Worse, however, were the misogynistic, derogatory comments towards the author. Cut that BS out or accounts are going to disappear.
I'll make myself crystal clear since it's apparently necessary for many of you: whether or not you agree with the article, the author's gender and appearance have absolutely nothing to do with the conversation. Stooping to that level is unoriginal, unfunny, and most of all insulting. Consider this a final warning before I start blocking accounts at the first sight of this kind of stuff. If you think your comment even approaches being borderline, keep it to yourself, and maybe take some time to consider how you relate to women.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Heh.||
To answer your original question, we keep the slack chat limited to site contributors. There are a lot of reasons for this; I'll leave it at that.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I think you're right.||
That takes that GIF to a whole other level.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Argh||
Emoji wiped out the rest of the post. Fixing.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I am happy to provide them||
|3 weeks 1 day ago||That is...||
...dead on. Tip o' the cap.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||This should have...||
...at least several dozen more upvotes.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||(No subject)||

|3 weeks 6 days ago||Don't do this.||
Was Rich Rodriguez Given a Fair Shake in Ann Arbor?
Even in jest, don't do this.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Before.||
Barring any unexpected setbacks, we'll be doing the first of these next week.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks, everyone.||
I can't imagine doing anything else.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||It's an epidemic.||
But the first three were all the same person (honestly don't remember who). About as stark an example of "please write my article for me" that I've encountered—I had to suppress laughter because Mattison kept cutting off his non-questions once that became obvious.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||No.||
If an opposing coach needed to comb through pressers to get hints about what they're up against, they're probably not qualified to coach. There's very little these coaches reveal from a strategy standpoint that wouldn't be very obvious to anyone who's watched tape.

Dennis Dodd tells us how harbaugh won't last at UM
If you're posting an opinion from a columnist/talking head and note at the end of the post that there are multiple posts on this site about how said person's opinion isn't worth listening to, it's almost certainly not worth starting that thread. That goes double when the opinion is something that's been discussed ad nauseam ever since Harbaugh got here.
