... and look at the data point for an idea of significance...
Example, the National rank for Sacks for and Sacks against doesn't tell tell as much as comparing their averages per game for both...
|1 week 2 days ago||We blamed the running game on passing issues...||
And though that wasn't the whole issue, we have been running into 9 man fronts a lot and also defenses are jumping keys to stuff the run. The passing against IU will give PSU and OSU something to think about, and I hope we will see some better balance this weekend.
I think the one thing we may still be missing is the quick passing game to punish the LBs for jumping run. Quick slants to TE or WR, especially out of the slot. Anything to get the LBs and safeties to think for a second before pinning their ears back and crashing the run.
Side note: I think this may be the opposite if the issue with our LBs, they seem to be a second late deciding and then run into blocks instead of RBs...

This makes it clear that Smith got antsy and cut up when he should have stayed outside. He is not fast enough to be thinking he can make the corner. No question one of the other backs gets 5+ on this to the outside.
I love seeing this on film as it makes for easy teaching for the coaches. This is about as obvious as it gets that a well blocked play cannot prevent a back from cutting into a LB.
Interesting to see the UFR when it is out as I am not sure where the breakdowns were. Line may not have played as bad as it felt, and I do think Utah's front 7 are solid.

Is that what you meant?
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks Brian, that gave me chills...||
Even Brightside has trouble being optimistic after the past few years. I was so sure we would be good last year...
I really do just want it to feel like we are on our way back, but winning this game would be so sweet.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||How much tape do they have to watch to prepare for Michigan?||
When he started talking about Florida tape for the defense, USC for Special Teams, Stanford and the 49ers for Harbaugh, Michigan for personnell... oh, and Iowa to see Rudock. And after all of that they don't really know what they are going to see when it all gets mashed together...
Awesome. Can't wait. Go Blue!
|12 weeks 5 days ago||5th year is no longer guaranteed...||
not sure if you will see this as I am late to this thread. There is a distinct difference in JH's approach to 5th year players that I don't believe will be just a one year adjustment. He does not want the 5th year to be automatic, and leverages that for further competition.
I agree with your frustration as I would at least like it to be easier to know who has another year or two left. We're going to need this board to help us keep track... hoping we collectively don't make the same change.

My then 5 year old nephew beat me repeatedly with the fake fieldgoal... At the snap he would run back30 yards so all the defenders were off screen... then launch the bomb... When the ball finally came down all defenders had gone on break and the receiver was all alone 80 yards down field...
Still burns a little...

Doesn't have any answers, but repeats over and over that a statement will be released as soon as the press conference ends...

As you get to know some of the personalities of the regular posters MGoBlog is more like a bunch of friends hanging out and talking about all manner of things. On Topic or OT, there is always an intersting debate or sharing of wisdom...
Of course, just like in college, an occasional fight breaks out among friends, but hey, we are all passionate people. In common we share a love for all things Michigan. We all bring a different background and perspective but are united in our Fandom.

|15 weeks 1 day ago||It still bugs me that none of the balls were the same PSI||
If I am QB, most important would be consistency of all of the balls that get snapped back to me. If he was behind this I have to believe they would be at least close to uniform PSI. Right?
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Who's got it better than us?||
|15 weeks 4 days ago||He threw a 5 yard pass behind and low...||
"Wooooof" is right.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, like to be the underdog for the opener...||
Great motivator. Won't be hard to get the team's focus for the opener...
|17 weeks 8 hours ago||The "deflated" balls were not all the same PSI...||
If I am Brady, I want everyball that gets snapped back to me to be consistent. If he wanted the ball boy to deflate them, it would not be to some random PSI. He woudl want them all the same. Consistent PSI would be much more important for consistent performance than low but varied PSI... Possible that is why NE performed better in the 2nd half?

My sister thought about getting one until she realized if she didn't care what it looked like, she should just get another minivan...

Actually, I cannot think of any Michigan commit attributable to the addition of Nebraska to the conference...
Rutgers and Maryland have both added interest and recruits to the fold...

They are all moving too fast, I need me some slow-mo's
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Let's leave the trees out of this...||
I am still sick about the 100 year old trees being killed by a hick 'bama fan.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||If you could have the #1 recruit in FB or BB...||
Which would you choose...?
Better if you leave these players out and make it a truly hypothetical question...
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Funny how when JH was a 49er, boone was all in||
But now that he is a wolverine he is crazy.
Coincidence? I don't think so.
Buckeyes know what is coming, and they know a new 10 year war looms.

You know, just like the last 3 years.

I don't want him running my kids' day care, but happy to have him running the ball for the Lions.
