that is in fact correct. this blog will never go to a subscription-for-content system.

|1 week 1 day ago||That's correct. Also Martin||
Also Martin decommited, then recommitted. I probably should have left him off.
|1 week 1 day ago||We've taken it down for book||
We've taken it down for book ads. Now that the book ads should probably go away, you are correct, sir.

So... yeah, this guy is who I'm talking about in the flesh.

i got a 101, which I'm told is the highest score ever
|1 week 6 days ago||I have gotten this comment||
I have gotten this comment for three solid years. All it does is make me not want to read comments. I believe a certain thing about football and have explained it and your outliers with Andrew Luck and Alabama talent do not move me.
I could turn the dime store psychonanalysis around on you and accuse you of wishing that Michigan football was in a better place and twisting various pieces of information around to create a sunnier view of the world than it actually is, and that would piss you off, because it's a bullshit way to argue. So why would I be moved by some guy accusing me of having a slavish devotion to the spread in an empty post devoid of anything resembling an argument?

yeah, it's probably the blog's fault.

because they have a good football team and we don't
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||It's good, but their pizza||
It's good, but their pizza can be hit or miss. They've got this burratta that's all vinegar, for one. I'm perplexed by its massive popularity and annoyed by their lack of reservations. It's not worth waiting for, for sure.

there is a middle ground in which M takes some shots and also throws some short stuff; this was a complete 180 when 90 degrees would have been better.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I am an idiot. Correction||
I am an idiot. Correction posted.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||that was more whole unit||
that was more whole unit amazement and already ticketed for fist pump.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||We only hate fullbacks given||
We only hate fullbacks given scholarships and you were D3 so you're cool. Also, what Seth said about "Walmart." Anyone who wants to like Michigan is welcome as long as they don't tweet at players. Those guys can GTFO.

I just got called out; I'm responding.

I don't think that's a shot at anyone.

they'll probably get it right the next time
|4 weeks 2 days ago||do you think Kerridge might||
do you think Kerridge might be reacting late because he does not run this play or things like it frequently enough to be able to react to an unexpected event
does it even matter if Kerridge blocks this guy when Gardner pulls anyway since he's apparently not reading the slot LB or screws it up
do you think that everyone screwing up on every play may be related to an inability to teach the scheme
do you think trying to do everything may be a part of that
if you cannot teach the scheme how is it not the scheme
does michigan just have the single dumbest collection of players in the history of mankind
why do you think that just because a play could hypothetically work that it's okay that it does not and never does
why do you address the single play mentioned and not the overall trend i pointed out that has lasted three years and counting
why does michigan rarely option anyone on their options, and how is that not scheme
does it really matter about the particular semantics of the worst offense anyone has ever seen at Michigan
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Kerridge is expecing that guy||
Kerridge is expecing that guy to be force and kick. That is a tough adjustment to make on the fly in that much space. Michigan could adjust to that by coaching him up on the sidelines and come back to it, but obviously they didn't.
Seriously: at what point does anything go back to the coaches for not preparing their guys? At what point does the consistent inability to get a fullback to do anything productive on an inverted veer become a coaching issue? Is there literally anything that would cause you to conclude that something was wrong with the structure and preparation of the players? Every week you do this: I point out a larger trend I'm seeing and you say "well yeah but we didn't execute." At what point does not executing on every play become not a player issue?

34% is the second worst performance in the history of the run chart, topped only by Penn State three weeks ago.
|5 weeks 6 hours ago||from the asinine article I'm||
from the asinine article I'm referring to:
|5 weeks 1 day ago||1. Playing all the tight ends||
1. Playing all the tight ends when zero tight ends can block.
2. Tackle over. I was at best extremely ambivalent about it after Minnesota, as BISB points out. Any positive things said in the UFR were followed by entire paragraphs of questions, IIRC. That of course feeds into #1 since it makes AJ Williams a tackle.
3. Panicking at end of PSU game.
4. Trying to run stretch and power and inside zone and being terrible at all of them. Even when I thought it might be a good idea against ND one of the overarching questions is "why does this make sense now?"
"You're better than that" is annoying rhetoric. I'm clearly not. I have no idea why you insist on defending this offense at every point by picking out specific things I said in a larger context of constant bitching, but if the overall tone here seems like hindsight... I don't know what to tell you.

Assumption there is that Pelini gets broomed.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Correct. Also the bowl game||
Correct. Also the bowl game debacle was a needle-mover, as it featured open rebellion from big chunks of the players. I didn't now that then, but do now.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||3.7 YPC even with that in,||
3.7 YPC even with that in, and that's cutting the 10 yard loss on the Toussaint fumble and goal line carries. Against Indiana, the worst D in the league. That projects to what against MSU?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||should I use some other stat||
should I use some other stat that emphasizes how terrible Michigan is at running from under center this year? TFLs? RB YPC? Upshot is the same.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, sorry about that. Up.||
Yeah, sorry about that. Up.
