|5 days 6 hours ago||you forgot the /s||
|5 days 13 hours ago||Two things:||
1. Vanilla play calling is the number one sign the players don't know the system yet. It was also an on-purpose reaction to the complicated Borges schemes. Vanilla was to give the players a chance to do something simple but well. They would have only performed worse with more creativity.
2. The reason Funchess wasn't targeted downfield was likely the thing you mentioned one sentence earlier. Gardner was injured and/or couldn't throw the route dependably. It defies belief that any modern OC would hamstring his own offense voluntarily by not "stretching the field".
He might have botched some other things, but I don't believe it was these two things.

Very well performed "Simmons stink," or rather Greenberg KoD.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I guess, in that universe,||
I guess, in that universe, next year's coach Schiano would then just tape Oakland raiders games from the weekend before and script drives based on those playcalls.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That statement sounds like pretty poor fandom||
And contrasts with your Sig strangely also.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||hope?||
Is the fact that Maryland ran for only six yards vs State a product of no Diggs and a loaded box or do they stink that badly?
Is it reproducible with our Clark-less defense?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Why worry about the buyout?||
Harbaugh is the right guy and we won't need to buy him out.
Or he isn't, and so we don't offer him what it would take.
We just have to figure out which first, which our AD didn't do each of the last two times.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||This is Michigan||
It's 29 degrees and sleeting.
No whining about a shower drip.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||i don't doubt Schlissel's power||
But if the AD wants to pay for Jim Harbaugh and a G6 for Kate Upton to fly in as our new recruiting coordinator, and does it with its own budget, why does he care?
He'll sound silly saying "don't spend that BTN money on what it's for (a team worth showing on the air) do nothing with it or set it on fire"
|6 weeks 4 days ago||when recruiting started making us sad||
Was that when the regular posting of recruits senior seasons disappeared from the front page?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||lol||
Lol at this.
Yes, kaepernick is regressing, can't finish games, rabble rabble. /s
|7 weeks 3 days ago||also check||
Check Wolverine Devotee's inbox for incriminating emails.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||does this offense lead||
The power 5 in # of three-and-outs? The rapidity with which our offense comes of the field, tempo or not, is the one thing we're tops at. Perhaps it's the only thing that gets practiced during the week?
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Game over, man!||
|10 weeks 2 days ago||#2 jersey tradition||
What a tricky thing to live up to, especially when an unintended consequence of the whole defensive scheme is to make you unsuitable to do it.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Well, the reason to do so would be||
That the almost certain new staff WOULD be able to do better at developing said players, just by virtue of "they could hardly be worse at it" . They just have to commit, as Newsome did, to UM and not just Hoke.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||one wonders if||
Soon enough, the heretofore lightly recruited sleeper kids, instead of the customary "Michigan bump" to their previous ratings, are going to instead get dinged for being offered by Michigan's staff. Or stop listing them on their profiles, so as not to scare off other better staffs.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||he is major obvious||
Because at Michigan there are no captains.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||the MgoQuestion||
About the punt...
Coach indecision until almost too late for the moment, panic decision, blame the 11th player for his not being coached before or during the 4th down.
The press conference has changed though. No more "the expectation is for the position". Maybe there are no expectations....
|11 weeks 3 days ago||it kinda sounds like||
Well, he's apparently not paying the most talented five, or the five who most want to win...
Maybe he Is giving each guy some playing time / starters' reps so they don't go whinging and transfer after the firing?
Or Giving the new coach some film on each guy to evaluate during the next couple weeks / months?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||how much of a lloyd disciple is hoke?||
Will he do what Carr did and start pushing transfers, or will he do what's (probably) better for team 136-139 and try to keep the kids committed?
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Well...||
That solves the running back controversy.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Coaching....||
I'd be favor of it. When will it start, do you think?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||"Deserve"||
This word just makes me think of the end of the movie Unforgiven.
Wow this season is depressing.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||only questions worth asking now||
Do we Lose to MSU worse than Eastern did?
Will anyone still care about this season by then?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Fans?||
There were still people there?
Maybe Special K was piping in boos?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||(No subject)||
|14 weeks 2 days ago||during a three-and-out?||
during a three-and-out?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I'm talking about Hoke mostly.||
Mattison' s return on his time investments is different issue.
I.m just noticing who's being identified as the deal-sealer by the kids.
and, I may be wrong, but would it be Heck (as recruiting coordinator) who sends out offers or "shows interest"?
Basically, what does Hoke have to do with recruiting other than employ these other guys and eat tons of sausage at the Mone household?
I'm a Bob, asking Lumberg, "what is it exactly that you say you do here?"
|15 weeks 18 hours ago||I didn't think he was dinging Hoke for Cole's talent.||
Cole being this "good" this early is a plus.
The minus is that the line is in such a state that our other options at LT are Dawson, LTT, Bushel Beatty, and Mags (i think), and none of them are right now better than a high school senior (or are needed else where at a position with even fewer ready to play players.) And this is year four.
Hoke had Lewan, got Mags and then rested on that, thinking he had time to let his projects develop. His answer to "what if the projects don't develop?" Is to say "well...", get surly with the fans and have another .500 season.
