Honestly, I don't know that much about Aranda, but I'm not sure how he is as a recruiter (it's Wisconsin so who knows), while Hermann has some bona fides in that department. Also, it may come down a bit on who the coaching staff can bring with them; if Aranda can't bring a good OC or Hermann a good DC, you might see some trepidation simply because those elements of each guy's resumes are unknown.
From a personal standpoint, I'd like a more dynamic offensive coach simply because the past couple of years have been so abysmal, and I think you can get decent DCs better than you can get good OCs. But we might get a preview of sorts in the B1G title game.

No, I very much doubt he'd turn Michigan down, but who knows? I'm just not buying the idea that Michigan is this #1 destination for aspiring coaches anymore. This program has some weird vibes around it right now, and you also have Florida floating around there to complicate things.
Personally, I think Michigan goes for Harbaugh, then when he turns it down they put on the appearance of looking at Miles while reaching out to Mullen. If Mullen passes (and I wouldn't be surprised if he did), then you look at Herman hard and I suspect he says yes.
Michigan isn't a great program anymore, and while it can certainly bounce back I'm not sold that it is a slam dunk that any given coordinator would jump at the opportunity.
|10 hours 6 min ago||I think the actual game score||
I think the actual game score will be a bit under 20 simply because this offense is so incredibly slow that it will cut down on the number of scoring opportunities. It'll be a blowout, but unless Gardner is knocked out I have to imagine that the offense will at least be able to keep the ball moving enough to keep the game semi-close.
|10 hours 8 min ago||I could not imagine a more||
I could not imagine a more predictable set of playcalling than a bunch of guys and gals on the internet. I've watched enough Madden games to know that "F*ck it, let's go deep" every down isn't a sustainable offense.
|10 hours 11 min ago||The passing game has||
The passing game has absolutely been uninspiring, but the rushing game has been more consistent if nothing else. I think the playcalling has been hurt somewhat by poor execution. That line is hard to define, but Nuss has only been here for a couple of months, and given what we saw for YEARS under Hoke and Borges I have to think that we have an incomplete picture on Nussmeier's coaching abilities based on this season.

If Michigan goes the conference coordinator route, it's going to begin and end with Tom Herman at OSU. He doesn't have any particular loyalty to OSU beyond the fact he was born in Cincy, he can recruit in the region, and Michigan would be a great place to get his first coaching gig. If Michigan can't get a guy like Herman, I have to think they'll try to get an ex-HC versus taking a flyer on a rising DC even though his defenses have been solid at multiple stops.

At least you're earning those negative points honestly.

I believe it was a hidden-camera show, hence the reason the glasses landed right on the kicker's face. But I could be wrong.

I was thisclose to getting a "The Foricer is strong" shirts, so I'm definitely not the guy to throw stones. That said, this is the dumbest idea for a shirt ever.

Great stuff, as usual.
At this point, I kinda doubt Gardner is hurt as much as the coaches just don't know what to do with this receiving core and have moved away from even trying to throw down the middle of the field. Gardner still has a decent enough arm, and when you have a 6' 5" target out there streaking past a safety, you don't have to be supremely accurate. Yet, the coaches either don't call these plays becase, as you noted, they are afraid of Gardner throwing a pick, or people are just busting horribly and Gardner either doesn't see them or sees them late.
I do agree that it was hilarious for the ref to call that block in the back, seeing as that type of contact happens all the time on returns and never gets called. Must have a house in Chevy Chase.
|16 hours 40 min ago||I try to not knock Gardner||
I try to not knock Gardner too much because I do agree that he's been let down by this receiving core at times, but he's just had a bad year in totality. His play has been a step back from last year, and he's not being helped much by the guys around him. I wish he had a better senior year, but he'll probably get a chance in the NFL and he'll graduate with two degrees from UM. His life will be fine, even if this year was a tire fire.

Nobody is coming to this team as it is currently constructed, but luckily in a couple of weeks it won't be the case anymore.
|16 hours 44 min ago||I think the defensive||
I think the defensive playcallling in the 4th quarter was inexplicable at times. It was pretty clear that Brown was going to be running the ball most downs, and yet he was rarely running against stacked lines. I'm sure there is something to it that will be teased out in the UFR, but at first blush it was hard to understand.

It's all I've got to look forward to anymore.

Thanks. It's a coping mechanism at this point.
|17 hours 41 min ago||I'm more interested in what||
I'm more interested in what happens if FSU loses a game this year, even in the ACC title game. Everybody is dying to drop them, but even if they struggle the next couple of weeks I wonder if that's enough to see them be left out of the playoff if, say, Miss St. and Alabama keep winning. Sure, Miss. St. won't play for the SEC title, but we've seen the committee in the past not hold that against teams whose only loss is to the SEC rep.

Thanks for commenting!

Oh, they'd still find a way to get an SEC team in. I'm sure Ole Miss would get some first-place votes and sneak in.

This game could have been 23-9 if Michigan hadn't made some really dumb decisions.

This team deserves to lose this game for dumb stuff like this.

Damn it guys. This is infuriating. Just let him have that dumb kick.

So that dumb-ass penality cost Michigan 7 points. I have a bad feeling that those points are going to matter in the end.
|1 day 13 hours ago||This boring-ass, grinding||
This boring-ass, grinding offense sure seems effective today. I'm not a fan, but this is a 1950's game I can live with.

That sure didn't look like it would have mattered, but whatever.
Fleet deserved better.

At some point I hope they show the block in the back. This feels like one of those penalties that happened away from the play.
