How bad Texas is. TCU barely beat Texas a Tech a week ago. Texas should have at the very least given TCU a game, even if they still lost by double digits.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Some of it has to be Chesson.||
He has had opportunities but has yet to show any ability to catch a ball downfield. At least one of his attempts he got a hand on it and I'd argue should have been caught.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Fucking refs||
Invalid fair catch signal my ass.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Guess we shouldn't be surprised||
This team still has quite a bit of Brady Hoke in them. Especially on the road.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Rudock doing his best Denard impression||
Nice. (Denard would have scored of course lol)
|1 day 16 hours ago||Congrats||
You won the challenge and got 2 1-2 yards. Can we just play football now?
|1 day 16 hours ago||Oh hi BTN2Go||
Nice of you to show me the fucking game finally.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Ok seriously BTN||
What the fuck.
|2 days 4 hours ago||BYU||
BYU is completely dominating the stat sheet. Problem is they cant get out of their own way...poorly timed penalties, bad turnovers, missed field goals, dropped TD passes.
|2 days 18 hours ago||That's not true!||
They got to see Denver play last Monday.
|3 days 18 hours ago||This||
The BTN is not dumb...Michigan games are its cash cow. It will be on TV, people. Relax.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Now that I think about it...||
They should have included the play that got them over 100 yards for the game. And then flashed "OVER 100 YARDS!" On the screen. Clearly that was the highlight of the game for them on offense.
|4 days 18 hours ago||He would have held a town hall||
And sent LochDawg to run it. And THEN completely ignore all student input.
|4 days 18 hours ago||...||
....Well, they did technically shut out Michigan for a half. So there's that. I guess.
|5 days 13 hours ago||What a difference a year makes.||
The season was totally and utterly over after that demoralizing Minnesota game and Morris debacle. I'm one of those who cling on till the last moment before jumping ship on a coach or team, and yet 5 games into the season it was totally clear Hoke was a dead man walking...conversations were had about what he needed to do to keep his job, but the odds of that were always extremely low given how the first 5 games played out. The rest of the season was sleepwalking. Losses were just shrugs. Wins were sludgefart wins. It was sad. The Michigan season was objectively DONE after one single conference game.
|6 days 20 hours ago||They're not targeting him anymore!||
CJ actually bailed Stafford out many times. But...Stafford isn't getting him the ball nearly enough. What happened to "throw it up in the general vicinity of CJ and see if he can catch it"? Remember when Stafford's problem was throwin it to CJ too much? That's been the Lions best play the last few years...and right now CJ is being severely underutilized, all in the name of "respect the run".
|6 days 20 hours ago||The Lions are so fucking dumb||
How the dick do you let a guy behind you on 4th and 1 with 13 seconds left in a half? I get that you want to defend the first down and prevent a FG attempt, but a TD is absolutely unacceptable in that situation. Take away that TD and the Lions had a real chance to win.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Not to mention||
They had a complete lack of urgency until it was too late. And even then they got to the redzone and somehow only targeted the Endzone once (the commentators were openly mocking them too...hey guys, you're down by 12 and there's a minute left, if you're trying to score you need to stop dinking it 5 yards every pass!)
|1 week 5 hours ago||Who the hell calls plays for the Lions?||
This offense lacks imagination. Oh hey I have an idea! Let's run the ball on 1st down again! Yeah, respect the run. Or something. OH hey, it gained 1 yard. WOO! Let's run again! Minus two yards. 3rd and long...well I suppose it's time to pass now, eh?
Borges would be proud.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Ah, ok.||
Well that would explain things, wouldn't it? Why do they even bother with the coaches poll anyway?
|1 week 16 hours ago||Also dumb.||
Arizona, after a humiliating loss at home against UCLA, still received almost as many votes as Michigan did.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Wow.||
Why in the flying fuck is Oregon still ranked?
|1 week 16 hours ago||One of those was a pick 6||
So you can't fault the defense for those points, since, well, it wasn't their fault. Hence 17 points.
|1 week 1 day ago||No...||
But I hope it does. I want NW to beat Minnesota next week so that they can roll into the Big House as a ranked opponent...we could be potentially looking at a top-25 matchup in two weeks if that happens (assuming M is ranked and also beats Marylang, of course). Which would be fun.
|1 week 1 day ago||Also turnovers||
Gobs and gobs of turnovers.
|1 week 1 day ago||Plus||
At some point it's a player's responsibility to know better. 4th and 16, late in game, up by 31 points? Dude, just don't do it. Harbaugh puts a lot of trust in his players...sometimes they make bad decisions. Harbaugh will no doubt correct it. But I'm not seeing some sort of huge coaching failure here.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not me||
If BYU wants to start talking shit the best possible response is "hey dude, scoreboard."
|1 week 1 day ago||I was||
I was irrationally upset they didn't get the shutout last week. Clearly the D was more upset than me. BYU was worn out, sure, but even still this was a dominant, beyond impressive performance. Held them to 100 yards of offense? I mean...
|1 week 1 day ago||SHUTOUT||
|1 week 1 day ago||I think||
I think it's 31-0 and our defense is dominating, Rudock is being extra careful not to turn the ball over and manage the clock. A little too conservative, sure, but again...it's 31-0.
