- Sideline checks - OC plays the chess match instead of having your QB do it all game. Doesn't have to be every play
- OL calls absolutely have to be fixed, from day one
- Better audible ability
- Practice time review - go to Oregon and see how they use every minute to work every player. You don't have adopt it, but let it give you ideas on how to maximize practice time. This isn't just for the Offense.
- Death of useless play action. It's lazy playcalling. Just call the same play out of shotgun.
- Throw the gd ball to Funchess if he's single covered in the red zone. And the black zone and the other zones (but not a bubble).
- Teach your QB that fumbling is simply death and it can't happen or he'll be benched. Neither Denard nor Devin understand this. They understand, but they don't understand. It's hurting Denard now in the NFL.

due to players. Bullough is as good (at least for the B1G) as they've ever had there, as is Dennard. Denicos Allen should get killed at his size, instead he's a special player. Lewis is a good safety. They'll still be good on D, but not quite the powerhouse they've been. I made the same argument last year and was wrong, but I won't be next. And for the love of pete, B1G OC's need to scheme a way to beat that D.
|1 day 13 hours ago||why do the metro suburbs||
not produce any talent? Private/Catholic schools yes, but generally not the public schools. I see Ohio kids come from their suburban districts all the time, not MI. Rochester, Troy, Sterling Hts, Novi, Canton, Farmington, Livonia, etc., these are large districts with good programs that nonetheless rarely put out D1 kids. And what's with Pontiac? Have they put out anyone of note in years?

Sirius college football station morning guy, and someone I think has good sense, would absolutely agree with you. Says the good Christian man thing is not an act. Whereas he won't say that about others, like Kiffin, Petrino, and the ASU coach, who he says many people in the industry openly despise.
He does call Richt "the energy vampire" though, sucking life out of his team with lack of emotion. Says at UGA you should have the talent to compete for championships nearly every year. FWIW

If I'm not already. But M-Wolverine wasn't a good poster because of duration, he was a good poster because he gave valid, well-reasoned points. I'm actually shocked that you disliked him so. This new regime will likely soon walk over the line between banning trolls and quashing most dissent. Probably already has. From the posts of Seth, Ace, BISB, and justingoblue, it doesn't seem as if they feel as much need to ban as you do. And did you really just suggest that people rid themselves of their avatar, so as to avoid being noticed and punished? That's fairly preposterous.
I learned a long time ago that the world would be a boring place if everyone were just like me, and thought the way I did. Healthy debate, that yes sometimes turns heated, is often the only way to resolve differences. It helps grow the community. Banning people who say things you may not like (as opposed to trolls, who should be banned) isn't a way to improve a community, because sometimes these are things we need to hear. Forcibly quieting those voices - when they're presented with reason - inevitably does more harm than good.

but few rules are absolute. McDowell is different from most recruits, at least in terms of how quiet he is about recruiting. May stand to reason he's different in other ways. Your rule may be valid, but probably at 80/20 rather than 100%

probably best to leave him alone. But it's not meaningful if there's no context - if he replies this way to all texts from recruiting analysts, it's not indicative of anything.

Probably not happening, but yes it would affect Hand. His dad told Sam Webb that Saban going to Texas was one of the bigger factors in his son's decision. This was pre-announcment, so it meant that they were considering a possible Saban move to UT as an Alabama negative.

That is a great way to describe how I'm feeling. I'm not exhausted anymore. I'm energized, optimistic, and want it back. Such is how a loss can be something much more than a loss.
|1 week 1 day ago||I read your first 3 lessons||
and thought, of course he knows this, anyone would especially an OC. Then I read your fourth and realized it took him 2 1/2 years to install the bubble. At least he finally did. Hopefully next year he'll actually throw it to a space player, instead of a 6'5" catching machine from an ancient planet.
If he stays I think they need serious change:
But seriously, what the hell do I know.
|1 week 1 day ago||Maybe in his fourth season||
Maybe in his fourth season Borges will be able to counter a double A-gap blitz. But this is unlikely.
|1 week 3 days ago||again||
you didn't address my point, which is that you're making false claims in your argument. I suspect because you have no counter.
Yesterday's game doesn't reinforce anything other than if M had played like that all year, their record may have been 10-2. The fatalist "Iowa up north" argument assumes so many negative extrapolations forever, and seems inconsistent with the actual game results against the opponent you hold up as the model (Ohio).
I'm very happy with the way the team played today, primarily because of the way the team blocked. I thought the offensive game plan was excellent, but Borges still needs to go. I of course am not ignoring 3-5 in the B1G, as nobody is, most importantly Hoke and evil Brandon. Unless you believe it prudent to remove Borges during the year, I see little about this season that means Hoke = worst of Lloyd forever
|1 week 3 days ago||what's crappy vs. sarcastic?||
and will Brian and the mods be responding in kind? You, Seth and the boys can be pretty acerbic in your replies to posts you disagree with. Are you not going to allow those volleys to be returned?
Sounds like a line too fine to walk, and I'm guessing one or several of you will be made uncomfortable by purge's end.
|1 week 3 days ago||this is classic||
and a weak argument. You ascribe characteristics to your antagonist that they likely don't possess, then rail against them for it. There are probably zero fans who have forgotten about 3-5, given, you know, they're fans and they pay attention to the win-loss record. Saying the team played great today or that you shouldn't give up on the team when they lose lots (if those are the people you're aiming at) is not the same as saying the B1G record should be ignored.
|1 week 3 days ago||so we were pretty aggressive multiple times today,||
so we were pretty aggressive multiple times today, and hence not Lloydball (which is the original point I'm trying to refute)
|1 week 3 days ago||who was the longtime guy?||
is that stuff in the moderator sticky?
|1 week 3 days ago||how about the 4th and 2?||
aggressive enough? kick a field goal there instead of go for it, and maybe we win. Point is, hindsight yada. I think you're really reaching if any of today's game reminded you of Lloydball
|1 week 3 days ago||vitriol and idiocy||
are what I'm against, I don't think disagree should have anything to do with it. If one makes a reasoned criticism of Brian's approach, I certainly hope he's not considering banning them.
|1 week 3 days ago||confused||
if he's upset with twitter crabpeople, how will a purge of mgoblog crabpeople further his aims? These two different breeds of underground dwellers exist in different (social media) dimensions
|1 week 3 days ago||and||
it sounds like he wants to get rid of those that disagree AND do it with vitriol / negativity

But don't jump. M has 16 total commits, where most of those ahead of us have 20 or more (Rivals based on total points). On an average star rating, we'd be #12
And you're being selective. ESPN has us with the #7 class. 247 #11

|1 week 6 days ago||I hated the Hoke hire||
But I opened up my mind after it was final, because what hell else could I do. Everybody who's ever worked with him or known him loves him to death. And for a dozen other reasons that nobody gives a fuck about (but yes, including an 11-2 BCS win season), I really like him now.
But it's almost beyond the point: why the fuck are we talking about RichRod? It's a means to despise Brandon. Seriously? This shit is so old. You likely despised fans who never shut up and gave RichRod a chance, instead clinging to their first impression reaction to the hire. And then every piece of negative evidence over his tenure was used to support that initial theory - while simultaneously flushing any positive progress. They vented and vented and helped run him out of town, too early in your eyes. You hated these people. Well congratulations, because despite your position that Hoke should be given 5 years (fairly meaningless support since you think he's a bad hire), you are successfully emulating them.
|1 week 6 days ago||many fans||
wanted Beilein fired for underperforming. Brandon put the kibosh on that kept him. It was the right call and it came before the B1G championship or NC appearance
|1 week 6 days ago||brother||
you set up the deck in your assumptions and use hindsight to resolve any remainder.
I'd suggest your views could be seen as reflective of what's wrong with the fan base: you can't stop in-fighting, you can't let anything go, you have an arrogant view that your way is the right and only way, though you know about 1/1000th about football as anyone in Schembechler Hall, you're fatalist, and above all you're angry that things aren't the way you want them to be, and until they change it to fit what you want (fuck every other fan and what they want), you'll make the coaches and/or AD a punchline and receptacle for your vitriol.
|1 week 6 days ago||I wouldn't concede Countess||
he technically committed before RR was fired, but after he was let go, a pre-sanctions PSU and Joe Paterno went after him hard. As I remember it, he had in-homes with both staffs and Mattison was able to keep him.
