- The offensive line, which is finally showing promise, should be staffed entirely by experienced players who were highly-rated recruits.
- Even if we lose Funchess, Darboh/Chesson/Canteen/Norfleet finally have some game experience.
- We will have several experienced, highly-rated RBs to lean on, and will be adding another in Ty Isaac.
- We're losing Devin Gardner, who I think is an awesome person but appears to have been irreparably broken as a QB. Morris hasn't shown much good so far, but really can't be much worse, and Speight is always an option now that he's been here for a full year..
- The defensive line is losing Beyer and Clark, but we have guys who can replace some of their pass-rushing ability and the interior should be far better with actual experience.
- The LBs and secondary should be improved, with a lot of young guys getting experience balancing out the loss of Ryan and Taylor.

I really appreciate Rudock's consistency. In his first season as a starter, he had 346 pass attempts and 67 rush attempts. In his second season, he had 345 pass attempts and 67 rush attempts.

For the last few months, I've only been able to log in on mobile. If I try logging in on my computer, it says "no data received." Tried clearing the cache, to no avail.

We were 3 points from the NCG in 2006 and had a nice run of B1G championships in the early 2000s. Still a while ago, but not as dire as you portray.

By that logic, we should beat the absolute snot out of Ohio State.

So what's wrong with starting the first game at 6 PM? Sure, some people might not be home from work yet, but I bet more people on the east coast are up for watching sports from 6 to 7 than from 11:30 to 12:30 on a weeknight.

ESPN is the "worldwide leader" like the MLB championship is the "World Series." Ask people in any other country how big ESPN is on the sports scene.

My takeaway from this is that Purdue has a player named Isaac Haas.
... who's the black private dick, that's a sex machine to all the chicks?

I think any competent coach should be able to lead this team to 8-9 wins in his first year. Our collection of talent coming back next year should be much better than what we have this year:

What do you mean "by" a Michigan player? I'm fairly sure that any fight big enough to be seen on the broadcast has two sides to it.
|36 weeks 3 hours ago||Yes||
I'm very excited for all our young bigs to develop, because they all have excellent potential within Beilein's system, but none of them is the kind of freakish natural athlete that would be plucked by the NBA early. Some or all of them may make the NBA, but if they do so it will be on the strength of a Frank Kaminsky-like polished game that takes a few years in college to develop.
|36 weeks 3 hours ago||A little small||
Does that really matter in a college basketball backcourt? Very few college guards have developed post-up games, and very few are good at contested jumpers even if they can shoot over a smaller guy. The main area where it might hurt is rebounding, but we know that Walton is a very good rebounder for his size, so even that might not be a big issue.
|36 weeks 4 hours ago||Open shots||
It looks like Kam is passing up a lot of open looks on the perimeter in favor of drives into traffic. He's 0-for-5 for the season on 3-point attempts. We know he has the range; maybe after he makes a few of those his game will open up a little.
|36 weeks 4 hours ago||TV||
If we've learned anything from the past few years of conference realignment, TV is all that matters, so the fact that it's in NYC is irrelevant. I can't imagine they are going to get much viewership with a broadcast that will end after midnight.

The athletic department reported attendance of over 100,000.

What's your point? Gardner is fairly broken, but Kapernick isn't great in obvious passing situations either.
|36 weeks 23 hours ago||Just stop||
This joke has long since jumped the shark. Maybe some of the geezers were uncomfortable with Rich Rod's full-time spread, but you can't find anyone in real life who prioritizes running up the middle over operating an effective offense.
|36 weeks 23 hours ago||Still inexcusable||
I realize that, but it's still inexcusable not to try to score at the end of the half (barring an unlikely event like Drake Johnson getting 49 yards on 5 consecutive carries).
By running out the half, you're basically saying that, when you have the ball, it's more likely that the opponent will score than you will. It's less than zero confidence in your offense. This is what I mean by "coaching scared" - Hoke is entirely focused on the downside, while completely ignoring the upside of trying to score. Sure, we could turn the ball over, but we could also score, which is the whole point of offense. In college football two minutes is long enough for time to be basically irrelevant if we're trying to hurry up; we just don't seem to care.

He hasn't caught any jump balls lately, but when was the last time you saw a catchable jump ball thrown to him? That TD bomb in the Penn State game sure looked pretty.

Every time I see a Jaguars highlight, I thank my lucky stars that we don't have those helmets.

Yeah, the Kings would really stand out from the pack as a red and blue team like the Sixers, Pistons, Wizards, Hawks, Clippers, and Pelicans.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Chicken Little||
There are four nonconference games we could lose without it being considered a major upset - Oregon, VCU/Villanova, Syracuse, and Arizona. Let's say we lose all four of them. Then we go into the B1G schedule at 9-4. We also had four losses going into the B1G schedule last year, and I remember that working out okay.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Outsiders and insiders||
I can't think of another person with Michigan ties who would be a viable option other than Harbaugh, Miles, and Austin. I still don't know how everything went wrong with RichRod, but I hope we're not limiting our pool of candidates for fear that an outsider will have some kind of culture clash. There are some obvious limits - we're not going to hire a Steve Spurrier or Mike Leach - but I don't think we should limit ourselves to the most conservative, P.C. personalities out there.
