|1 week 2 days ago||The Formula (TM)||
Recruit well. Develop players to be mentally and physically tough. Find a scheme that the players can execute well and that leads to schematic advantages over other teams. Develop a winner's attitude.
All else is less important.

I also went there. Certainly an interesting few years.

I think it'll take 11-5, honestly. 10-6 may fall short.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'll give it to the new guys on the OL||
The replacements on the OL have stepped it up, and it looks like Lombardi opened up the playbook....good results.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||My guess is OL injuries and||
My guess is OL injuries and an OC that is wayyy too conservative. This offense used to be so dynamic, and part of that was because the OL was solid. Not so much this year. We're Jared Allen's b*tch right now....

Yeah, I know it must be hell to do them, but I miss them when they're not done. One of the best parts of the site for me.

Upvoted for "cadaverous". "Moribund" for a long time, for sure.

....and that's why I read this blog and few others. That was pretty freaking awesome.
"Hey, we didn't come to play.....music?"

Even at UAlbany (where I graduated from), where football is now D1 and has been for several years, they still give lots of tickets to the games away for nothing or next-to-nothing. Basketball is getting more prominent, but still, yeah....
Great education at a great price though.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||No doubt...a solid day||
I made some good food, drank a few beers, watched lots of Big Ten games, ALA-LSU, and finished with Oregon-Utah. Michigan won, but not in a fashion that will gave many second thoughts about the coaching clean-sweep that needs to happen. Pretty much a perfect Saturday.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Of course we do....it's from 1986||
Of course we do...it's from 1986. Manball. Big-boy football. A power game on offense, where we impose our will in the ground game, using our strong, road-grading OL and TEs and our RBs that use superior vision to hit the correct holes and strength to run through tackles. This allows us to avoid turnovers and chew up the clock, keeping our defense fresh.
The problem? We do very little of it well against teams with a pulse. Oops.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Negged...||
Negged for sitting through the whole fucking game, and not figuring out something better to do.

Game balls to DeVeon and the D. Yeoman's work, for sure.

How DARE you even suggest such a thing!
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Uhhh...||
I get it....but they already have 3.

Going through the defensive stats....the decision to go quasi-prevent on the last drive is mind-boggling....

Our coaches make it so we can't have nice things :(

Forget that the deep out was open....let's throw it to the covered guy, in the middle of the field.
