|43 min 55 sec ago||The defense is||
fine but I was expecting them to be better in terms of havoc and turnovers. No, the offense isn't helping but nobody thought they would, especially early season.
|2 hours 10 min ago||The offense looks||
like what it is...young with the senior leader who is playing like a freshman. The OL is a bit better than I expected, but DG is nothing like I expected. For all the damn overreaction here, the truth is that if DG could see the field and go through his progressions they would be much, much better. And not only can't he do that he can't seem to deliver the ball in stride. He's behind or ahead of his target on even short passes.
|4 hours 30 min ago||That will be||
|4 hours 32 min ago||I keep thinking||
what a shame it is.
|4 hours 34 min ago||Would Borges||
managed this futility? I love DG but either let him regress to his running self or bench him. Everything is progressing but him.
|10 hours 28 min ago||Two loss||
predictions? Is this what happens when you are paralyzed for days by a black and white dream about not being the smartest guy in the class. Is this getting ahead of the story or building the story that you hope to write? You know the one about Brandon and Hoke being dropped from a jet without parachutes and landing on the 50 yard line in front of 100,000+ grateful fans?
|1 day 2 hours ago||How about starting||
with an understanding of what a Michigan man is? It has nothing to do with where you come from and everything about believing Michigan is the very best place to be (for a coach) and reaching your potential as an athlete and man (for a player).
|2 days 2 hours ago||Exactly. Not one||
of those kids would blame Hoke for the interception, fumble and misplay on the short kick. They would blame themselves and those are the 3 reasons the score was what it was.
|3 days 3 hours ago||That's unfortunate||
and basically just disrespectful. Hoke is a good man. If he doesn't make it at Michigan it won't be for lack of heart or love for the program. The bs he's subjected to from supposedly knowledgeable fans ultimately reflects on the fan who I doubt lives up to half the standards they set for others.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Webber isn't||
going to apologize. He thought then like now that it was all about him. I love him in his post-playing career but there is no way around he was a kid molded by excessive adulation. Jalen and Howard came from much tougher circumstances and yet it's Webber, a middle class kid, who wants to play the poor, exploited athlete.
|4 days 1 hour ago||It takes a special boy||
to ignore his national profile and rape accusations and find this so funny he needed to share it from a public table top.
|6 days 8 hours ago||I don't see nuthin'||
but a player on the field.
|1 week 1 hour ago||They talked about||
that on the radio...GM was showing a lot of looks today.
|1 week 1 hour ago||I say screwed only||
because they were inconsistent. Start it whenever but for both teams.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Not true.||
Did you see Eli Manning Monday? I'm not saying DG is trying to command that complex of a system but he's clearly not operating instinctively which tells me he's too much in his head. If he'd been playing in the same system for 2+ years I'd agree with you but this is basically year one for him with a real QB focused coach. And worse he's having to unlearn half of what he did just to survive last season.
|1 week 3 hours ago||I love DG but||
he seems tentative or maybe too much in his head. I don't know, maybe it's PTSD from getting the hell beat out of him last season. Then again, he gave me that feeling early last year.
I see a lot of old Michigan in this offense...if they can run the ball they will succeed.
|1 week 3 hours ago||They got||
screwed on the start of the clock. Sane situation for Miami in second half they started as they lined up. Still someone on the sidelines should have noticed.
|1 week 4 hours ago||Henne was||
plugged into a system that had been in place for years and was dumbed down to keep pressure off him. Morris wouldn't have that advantage.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Right the ENTIRE||
staff is in over their heads. I mean come on man.
|1 week 2 days ago||I am not||
sure why the video mattered...how did they think the woman was made unconscious? I mean, did it really take a video? Sterling was made to sell his team over hurtful words...he didn't physically or monetarily hurt a single person in the NBA. The NBA knew damn well that Sterling had been charged with racial discrimination in other business pursuits, actions that actually hurt people.
I don't have much respect for the sincerity of either league. It's all about what they can get away with until it costs too much.
|1 week 3 days ago||Name the game||
to game injuries that Beilein has talked about? The fact is he was very coy about Mitch until he had surgery. Beyond that he hasn't had much to talk to the press about.
|1 week 3 days ago||Thank you||
for your service and sharing some well earned wisdom.
|1 week 4 days ago||I wonder if NDs||
quick time outs were to adjust to Pepper's absence. Look though, I don't want to blast anybody, but they had to depend on the defense to protect the offense. Putting a young OL and QB learning his third new system in five years on that stage in a hole sealed the game. All of the hand wringing and ranting is way over the top. If I had any criticism it would be that Michigan didn't go into some kind of two minute drill when they got down by two scores. They had to know that a score was vital.
|1 week 4 days ago||Come on...||
if you're a defensive coordinator up 14 points against a young, inexperienced line in its first year of a system you have a huge advantage. The only thing that matters about the ND game is how Michigan uses it to improve.
|1 week 4 days ago||I remember first||
encountering a person who hated Michigan, specifically Michigan football. After reading this thread I might finally see his point.
I mean damn...this fan as victim attitude is pathetic. Where in the world does that come from? Is it because you weren't entertained? Is it because your identity is tied up in the success of a football team? I don't get it at all.
|1 week 4 days ago||It is amazing.||
And it is embarrassing. Hoke after big wins his first season always said it was about the players. Now he says it and fans take offense?
|1 week 5 days ago||Hoke has a better||
recruiting and coaching resume than probably everyone on this board.
|1 week 5 days ago||The only thing||
worse than the critiques by people who haven't played/coached/held a water bottle at a high level are those by former players who should know all they don't know.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm sure a guy||
with his eye on a head coaching job left Alabama to work for an inept dictator who would control his every move.
|1 week 5 days ago||WTF has "Nuss" done||
to warrant a promotion?
