Great pictures...Liked the uniforms, liked that dancing......There seemed to be more enthusiam and the crowd seemed to be into it. Whatever inspires the team!!! And, that's great that a player had design input!
|1 year 37 weeks ago||RR wasn't supported, didn't||
RR wasn't supported, didn't get the D-coordinator he wanted for only $10,000 more......And the Hoke hiring was a joke. Don't know what would lead recruits to believe that this time will be better.....but, your right, you'd think with the money M has been throwing around!
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Very good observation, not to||
Very good observation, not to mention getting those that the admissions department will take, and be succesful as students at the U.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||If M would have coughed up||
If M would have coughed up $10k more Casteel (Reference - "3 and out") would have come and RR would still be here, probably winning. Instead of paying $10k more when they should have, they payed millions more for this...uhhhgggg....when will the circus end.
The loss of recruits seems to be less serious of an issue than the right coaches....Arizona managed to land a couple of 2 stars every year and seems ok.....Which is better than Utah's recruiting....hmmmm
The Arizona O and D lines really got pushes and looked great against Oregon...they were motivated and Tough....Chris Allen is their S&C coach...Worked for Barwis at M as his assistant....enough said......
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Screens||
YES!!!.....Perhaps even as a check off after the RB peels off of his block - I think many of the screen passes from years past were check offs. Where did this go?
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Missing in M's Offensive Attack.....||
So…Regarding M’s offence in attacking various D’s…...I'd like to hear someone ask Nussmeier at a press conference about the QB reads in his offence....not just the 1,2,3 progressions, but the checkoff guy (does he exist). I noticed with the Borges O that, not only were receivers not coming back or remaining viable after things fell apart, but there never seemed to be a RB or TE with a blocking assignment peeling off of the block for a quick outlet pass. Even though all they had to do was to turn toward the QB. I'm seeing the same thing with the Nussmeier O - When the QB get's in trouble does the strong side RB or TE have any checkoff assignment.... I never see it, but it is needed with a weak O-Line. I remember Brian Griese was always checking off to a peeling off RB or TE when the long pass wasn't there and pressure came. We really need this as part of the O game plan and I just don't see it any more....why? It looks like the QB's only emergency out is to eat it or throw it away. It's surprising that Borges didn't implement this since in the West Coast O typically after the quarterback makes three reads and if no opportunity is available after three reads, the QB will then check off to a back or tight end. Not that our QB's can make three reads prior to pressure, but should check off as soon as pressure is felt. Ok, rambling enough, but why isn't Nussmeier implementing this? Or, aren’t the players executing?

|1 year 38 weeks ago||Interesting article||
Even the Rolling Stone Magazine is talking about M; http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/features/michigan-footballs-big-chill-bad-for-us-all-20140926#ixzz3ERIljlr1
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Saving Hoke||
Hoke is a nice guy, is good at recruiting, and represents M's culture well.
- He can't be allowed to make any game decisions, and must stay off of the fricken football field...wtf
- The O-coordinator must make all clock mgmt. decisions and coordinate with the special teams coach and D-coordinator
- Mattison much be in charge of all major game decisions / orchestration where over-all coordination is required.
- Someone other that Hoke / possibly a combination of Mattison Nusmeier must be in charge of all assistant hiring / firing - Hoke has no balls in this area and doesn't understand anything resembling anything beyond basic high school football coaching so is incapable of making these decisions - I watch Clarkston high fb, the coaching across the board is far superior than what I see at the M games!!!
- Ferringo must be fired!!! The special teams are serviceable, but not "special" - ten man punt coverage only two on the returner.... - wtf....not being able to pooch punt, get inside the 15, etc etc...wtf, wtf, wtf
- Funk must be fired so obvious - wtf!!!
- Wellman must go - Need someone to make them tough and motivated - It's hard to watch the O-line not be able to push inferior D-lineman
- THIS ALL NEEDS TO HAPPEN NOW!!! Save the season, save the recruits!
- Need someone on the sidelines to get in players face - not clap and pat their butts!
I'm all for keeping Hoke, said the above.....Nice guy, represents the program well, good recruiter, good for the culture....Establishes a good comfortable family atmosphere for the kids and their families.
All coaches from SDSU being fired - Coincidence - I think not!!!
|1 year 40 weeks ago||44 - 24 Utes||
44 - 24 Utes - And Hoke will be clapping.....I really hope that M will show us their potential, and think that M should win the battles at the lines. But, based on what I've seen this year (see below), and M's problems with stopping the type of spread that Utah runs I'm not at all optimistic.
M Questions / Issues:
- Overall orchastration of the team - clock mgmt, game decisions, O, D, Spec. teams working together.
- Will the D get sucked into the run-option-read as they frequently do?
- Can the O-line get a team push when needed - some lineman win battles, but still lack that team push?
- Can the O-line form a pocket w/o gaps to provide more time?
- Can Gardner not get "rattled" and make poor decisions?
- Will M put Morris in when / if Morris get's rattled for a series of downs as I believe they should have in teh 2nd Q last Sat.
I really hope to see that all of these many lingering issues are resolved, but not optimistic.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Tough O-Line||
Perhaps the O-Line could be sent to Barwis (voluntary of course) to add strength, toughen them up, and motivate them too!!! Couldn't hurt to try and may have great results! I've seen them get pushed around at times, and not be able to get a push. Not that Aaron Wellman is necessarily bad at S&C......but couldn't hurt to try something else at least for the O-Line.

|2 years 17 weeks ago||Oppps Mattison||
Been too long since Fball season forgot that it's Mattison, not Madison...uhhhgggg
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Madison in Charge||
I think that it's great that Madison took charge and fired his D line coach!!! The D line coach was behind the times and didn't know how to deal with spread offences so the D line was out of sync with the rest of the D. Masison finally stepped up, took charge, and made the neccessary change to prevent further embarassment. What was the X D line coaches name again?......Joke, or something like that?
|2 years 25 weeks ago||6 Points||
6 Points until it didn't matter......Borges should watch K State receivers and how 2 always curl back.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||"Bo like passion"||
Seemed as if they didn't care......Where is the passion? They need a "Bo type" or "Barwis type" to get them fired up with that "killer instinct"! Along with changing the OC, O Line Coach, perhaps others, and getting a good QB coach of course!....... And, I still question S&C coach given O and D line play and toughness.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Brandon's 2:30 am pickup||
Borges just plain didn't care and Hoke was too stupid to do anything about it! If Hoke cared at all he would have gone up to the press box and choked that fat idiot! We know that he is too dumb to manage the clock, change plays, or change tempo.
Brandon picked up the fat girl at 2:30 after all of the pretty ones were gone........most of us know that they aren't "keepers"!......chew your arm off and get out of there!......move on!
Even if M hired the best OC in the biz someone who knows what the hell is going on is needed on the side line! No passion, No drive, No heart!!! Bo would puke! Woody would have killed the water boy!!!
I'm glad you guys care!!! Represent our state well!!!
|2 years 26 weeks ago||FIRE BORGES SOON||
I sure hope that Borges is fired soon ("all I want for Christmas")!!!.......Otherwise, M will not be capable of keeping recruits or recruiting new at skill posistions. At a pay scale of $2,000 per pound M gets pathetic play calling, abysmal clock management, no counters or contingincies, and no capability to make in game adjustments....... Don't even have a coach that is willing to play an entire first half. Perhaps there were 2 1/2 well coached games in the last 3 years which could probably be chalked up to luck.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Little Brother is all Growd up||
Little brother is all growd up now......so big brother can either sit back and be proud or try to learn from little brother. Little brother obviously runs great schemes on O and D, has great game plans and play calls, makes sound adjustments, has superior strength and conditioning and even has an obviously quality QB coach......and on and on........ despite far lower rated talent. Perhaps Michigan's AD wants to be competitive and will make some changes, perhaps not. At any rate it was fun rooting for little brother and watching him do good........Furthermore, the season tickets will be much less expensive!
|2 years 29 weeks ago||The earth is not flat!!!||
I'm so glad that Borges figured out that the field is more than 20 yards wide and quick plays to the outside help compensate for a young undercoached O line.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||Same thing||
Borges called a decent first half as he has a few other times, mostly in bigger games. He reverted back to the old Borges later in the game, probably ran out of plays and didn't build off of plays that worked with similar yet different plays to confuse the D. It looked from the stands as if he called "same thing" four times and it didn't work once......Can't imagine why he doesn't make it look like "same thing" and do something different....laziness? I hope that this game didn't reduce our chance of getting a really good OC and he bringing the best in the business with him.......Includeing a S&C coach that can improve on toughness. For $650k/yr, M can get the best! As far as the 2 pt. conversion goes it was a good decision followed by a crappy play call. They had a mismatch to the right if Gardener would have rolled right......Perhaps a QB coach could have taught him to recognize this and call an audible. I'm very happy that M did good and it was a great game, however I'm worried that it will result in "same thing".
|2 years 30 weeks ago||$650,000||
For $650.000/yr (3re highest in college football) M should be able to get one of the best O coordinator's in the biz......One who completely run's the show on O......And, works well with other coaches. Such as, ah ah.....a QB coach. Then Hoak can be the $4M dollar figure head (perhaps a tad high for this role), set the culture for the program, and recruit recruit, recruit.........all of which he does well. He is great at what he does......just needs the right people to delegate to. The New OC should then be able to pick the O assistants he desires, including perhaps the S&C guy since there seems to be an issue with strenght and toughness that there certainly wasn't with Barwis.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||D should be great next year!||
The D should be great next year despite total incompetance on O costing the best, and possibly the 2nd best recruits in the country.......sad, sad, sad.......Borges needed to be canned immediately after them PSU game simialr to what was done in other programs to save their seasons. Should have been done after he proved his total incompetance last year actually!
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Perhaps Mattison will help the O||
Since Hoke doesn't know O and Borges is incompetent, etc, etc, etc.......Perhpas Mattison was asked to consult and have some influence on play calling........nah, just a fantasy, can't happen........ Borges is too stuborn and pig headed to listen and would rather blame the players.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Great D||
We have a great D.......Wish the O would let them rest more with a few less 3 and outs!...Perhaps then the D could score more touchdowns since the O certainly isn't well enough coached to handle that role!
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Return to AA||
Mattison returned to AA because his daughter wanted him to see his grandchild grow up and be with the family.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Dl Coach||
Hoke has a token DL coach role because he doesn't know what elst to do, certainly doesn't understand the offense, and Borges "doesn't work well with other coaches" And he reports to Mattison as the DL coach.
