|3 years 12 weeks ago||time to move people around?||
1) Everytime I see Cox run, I think "Ian Gold".....why not move him?
2) JB Fizgerald? Watched him a bit last last year.....he needs to be a defensive end
3) Move Roh permanently to linebacker...yeah...I know it isn't his natural positon, but geez, Ezeh? What have we got to lose
4) this was discussed in the off-season, make Ezeh a rush end...heck..it would simplify his reads
5) The team is VERY deep on the Oline...welll.....have some of them take some snaps on the Dline. Lord, Quinton Washington is build like a DT for christ sake! What have we got to lose if he takes one snap here and there.
6) Am I the only one who thought Vlad could move to Linebacker? Always felt he was stocky like one.
Finally, if all else fails, take Ezeh out of the game permanently, and go with more of a permanent nickel package....3 down linemen (including roh), Mouton and another safety, plus 6 db/safeties.....
Ok....perhaps some of my ideas suck...but Ezeh?
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Geez, where all the defensive linemen?||
Check out the depth chart, we're gonna be thin at DE and DT next year, and poss. in 2012 unless things happen soon. At Linebcker, once Ezeh,Mouton, and moundros check out, our linebackers wil be like the abbot and costelo skit "whose on first?
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Take a break ...you deserve it Brian!||
So, was michigan, coming back to win at the end, Luke Skywallker this time in Return of the Jedi?
|3 years 14 weeks ago||I think nd's weakest link is their newly rebuild offensive line.||
and, I saw purdue getting some push on them. If I'm BK, I come out with some heavy tightend formations, pound the ball a bit, then go downfield......and actually fatboy had luck doing this in 2008
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Chris Perry....that's what this situation is like...hopefully...||
Chris Perry was going to transfer also. He was whining to his mother about his playing time, and she almost gave in, as she latter said in an article, and then she said something like this to herself "if I let him quit, and move on right now, how is he ever going to grow up and be a man" It sounds like Mr. Tate is having the same thougts, based on his comments....lets hope so.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Herbie is like lots of the talking heads, they cover..||
all the game from about 30,000 feet, never venturing to the treetops, like Brian does about Michigan. For example, he said "all of uconn's wr are back" as part of his prose. In fact, they are not. Their top two left, and the returning guy snared 22 balls last year. What is laughable is that he thinks the following is some how profound "michigan fans better not take Uconn lightly, this isn't some mac school coming in here....this is a good team" Duhhhh....like we havent talked about them, ad nausem, since Jan freakin one! Clearly, Espn's headquarters proximity to Uconn is part of this as well........
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Brian, as I'm trying to get in a positive frame for tommorows||
game...I have one request......PLEASE ...OH GOD...PLEASE....NO 5 QUESTIONS FOR THE DEFENSE...I CANT TAKE IT!
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Well....despite their high school press clippings, and despite||
the growing pains of the michigan oline the last two years....Michigan has moved the ball VERY well, on the ground, vs. this group of ND defenders. So whatever that is worth...
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Well if we can all agree...||
that indy,purdue,minny,wildcats & illi are historically the 5 worst programs in the conference, then I'd say Wisky made out like a smirking little badger...why?
By deeding them Minny as their lock, permanent "rival" it guaraaaaaaannntteees....that the badger gets 4 of the said, historically weak, 5 teams EVERY year. Partner that with their general 4 out of conference pastries, and you have a program that need only steal a game from Psu or THE Osu university for a nice 9 game win season annually!
|3 years 15 weeks ago||The above alignment senario, as suggested by brian, is the||
Kobeashi Morou (wrath of Khan) senario I have raged about on mlive and mgoblue...a month ago, heres how this scheme benfits the Klingon buckeyes, the nittnay lion Rhomulans, and the ferengi spartans:
1) Michigan and Osu is moved up to october....this marginalizes the SS Wolverine because
2) Psu and Osu slide THEIR game to the end of the season which is what they both want cause they don't think the SS wolverine will rise again
3) Michigan & Msu will slide to the last game of the regular season, which benefits sparty due to the enormity of attention rivalry weekend gets (I was way ahead of Drew Sharp on this one)
4) Now Michigan has Nebraska, Iowa, Msu, & Psu EVERY year. Then there will be years when Psu & Wisky get piled on top of the.....oh joy
5) Osu gets 3 pinheads, Psu, and Wisky (who is always up and down over the years) and us.
So, in the end Michigan is screwed all the way around, Psu enhances themselves by playing osu at the end, Msu gets a jump start bay playing us at the end, and Michigan's will be tough EVERY year. Now you know why Osu barely raised a finger about all this, and why Psu (my contention) Balked BIG TIME, behind the scenes about moving the west (whichis the easiest FREAKIN move for ALL concerned). And our AD thinks this is all worth it so we might play osu once every ten years....twice.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Geez...with corners we are kinda like...||
Hee-Haw! "if it weren't fer bad luck we'd have no luck at all"
|3 years 18 weeks ago||guess I was off in other demension, but what did Ron English...||
|3 years 19 weeks ago||If helen of troy wolfolk is going to make those comments, or||
if he harbours those thoughts about tate....HE better perform on the field this year as well. HE was hardly the rock of Gibraltor himself last year. And twinkle,twinkle little 5 star who plays like 3, steve schilling better back it up as well .......
|3 years 19 weeks ago||(evilempire lies prone, passed out on the floor at the shock||
that things like this go on at a school from the SouthernEthicsConference)
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Brian, here's something else you missed in said Northwestern gam||
...The refs gave Nw 17 points
1) In the third Q, Now player fumbles the ball around the Nw35, and the ref says he was down. Now, if standing completely perpendicular is down...then he was down. Nw proceeded to drive down the field fro 7.
2) Before half Nw does an onside kick. Not only was ONE player clearly off side (and Keith Jackson called is AS it was happening it was so obvious), the replay showed in fact TWO kitties were off-side. 3 more for the kitties
3) Nw, third and about 25 from own 35, kusack chased from pocket, and with one foot CLEARLY in bownds 10 yards down the field, Michigan flagged for 15 yards, auto kitty first down, they drove the length for 7
thats7+3+7=17......even a buckeye can add that up...er...maybe
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Dave Pearson, the michigan center in said 2003 punt fiasco game||
and I met at a bar in atlanta, in 2004 while watching Smith go wild during the Osu-Michigan game. He told me this story:
The day after the Iowa Punt in question, he went real early to the stadium, and the only person he found there was Jim the punt coach. He said jim was seated behind a desk starring at the wall like a transfixed zombie. Dave said "Jim....Jim...Jim are you alright". Dave said Jim was completely unware of Pearson's presence, and his face was a strange shade of green/yellow.....all of sudden, according to Pearson, there was this awful sound from Jim and BLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH he throws up all over the desk, on to the floor, and I think he said it even caught part of the wall. And Pearson confirmed the obvious, he wasn't let go for "personnal reasons" as Carr stated in the paper...he was canned. Clearly though, based on the story, the pressure/guilt was Emence!
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Denard maybe the choice.....||
if for no other reason than that the defense is bad. If he can make the zone read work, while keeping defenses honest with an improved passing game, the defense will spend less time on the field (oh please god!), will have fewer short fields because michigan is running more which equals fewer turnovers, and the defense will have better overall field positon vs. other offenses. This is what I believe RR is mulling over in his head....
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Evilempire & the SEC||
Having lived in SEC country (atlanta) for 24 years I have seen and heard it all from this these self centered, childish SEC clown fans. When they get nailed by the NCAA it's like they have this Chatty Cathy doll string they pull that goes "everybody does it". They are so isolated that whenver I tell them how big the enrollments are in the bigten, bigten academic standings etc. I get this my mama just died, dropped,gapeing, jaw effect. When the USC thing went down, an Auburn guy was telling me they should get the 2004 Nat Title Trophy......but he got upset when I said the old glass housed, stones thing of a ma jig line.
The creme de la crem is from the three clowns who played for bear bryant , in three different decades....who all said (ring you local class bell, drum roll please) "guaranteed passin' grades"!
|3 years 21 weeks ago||This agent stuff in the SEC, and the SEC's response, reminds||
me of a movie sene:
1st person "I'm Shocked...SHOCKED to see gambling at Rick's"
2nd person "here's your share of the winnings"
1st person "oh..thank you"
If you said "pulp fiction" you were wrong......if you said "casablanca" you are correct...and probably middle aged like me....
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Nice job but, isn't our real threat on the ground, as||
Osu, Msu, Iowa, Wisky, Uconn are run first teams....that to me means the linebackers may be key. If you cant stop the run with these teams the passing part is academic. But, dont get me wrong, the secondary is still a BIG concern.
ps- I think, given their potential weaknesses, ND may be running a lot more this year....
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Brian, Matt haynes doesn't sound to smart either in his||
quick hitters on the scheduling calling Uconn's defense "solid" (and so was the third reich's has the pig farmers from the ussr closed in)
and that Uconn is seen as an "inferior team" as they march into Ann Arbor...umm by whom Matt?
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Cyrus is NOT serious about Michigan.....||
gimme a freakin' break "though I played with roh & lewan, I don't know them well enough to ask about Michigan" .....oh c'mon....HS football players are always tight with each other. Perhaps he should just say the truth "I'm really not very interested in Michigan"
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Ok....here some math for you.....||
Ohio State.....TEN 4/5 star recruits......
10 and 1....go play with those numbers
|3 years 24 weeks ago||This report is like playing with unemployment numbers||
(like the current administration does). It shows the osu & michigan ave ranking as only 3.7 to 3.17.......but Osu has TEN 4 or 5 star committments, while michigan has ONE. Its only Osu' larger overall number of recruits (17) that makes things seem closer than they are. We better win this year, or lessor recruiting classes will be the norm, and less talent will be a self fulfilling prophecy....
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Enough...it's over guys....stop the soccer weenieing.....it's||
...the great shadow of american militaristic monolithic football fast approaches! I see the dark clouds approaching...soon it will be (to borrow from Judas Priest) "SLAMMING THE WORLD LIKE A BATTERING RAM"
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Ok.....revenge of the soccer nerds....||
playtime is over, back to work in the empire of the american football god!
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Solving the scheduling problem||
Have all the teams schedule an extra conference game, BUT don't count it in the standings!
Example: Ohio State is in the "east", and nebraska is in the "west".....they aren't on the regular schedule in say 2012. So, they schedule an "out of conference" game with each other early in the year, in one of their out of conference slots. My solution solves serveral problems:
1) Because you get some better match-ups for the TV folks, they can kick up more money
2) Becasues the game doesn't count in the standings, nobody will have any inhibition to schedule these games
3) The bigten could let the teams schedule some of the games in neutral places that would expand the conferences appeal, ie. Sch the game in Atlanta, or New York etc. to start the season
4) You can do the "home n home" thing easily
5) it improves each teams strength of schedule...but the games would still be part ot the national title debate
|3 years 46 weeks ago||High School Qb's and the spread||
Man, some people must either have short memories, or haven't been around very long. For YEARS colleges ran option offenses, and PLENTY of guys ended up being great qb's coming out of that system. In fact, in the old option days, one of the benefits of guys not throwing much in college, was it forced NFL teams to put them an the bench for a few years to observe and learn. Now if a guy has 1000 pass attempts in college they throw him to wolves and you get what you get. In fact, I see just as many busts now, from guys who have thrown a lot more in HS & College, as when they hadn't thrown much in the option days.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Big ommision with regards to the SEC....||
both florida and georiga LOST to Miami of Ohio in the tangerine bowl in the 70's. In fact, I think Ole Miss lost to them also.......and the other omission was the the SEC CHEATS THEIR BRAINS OUT...
|3 years 46 weeks ago||the morons who comment about devin....||
taking a redshirt are looking at him in the context of starting. Not, which I think will happen, as part of a Leak-Tebow arrangement that florida had last year. So, you use Tate as the starter, then bring in Gardner as the changeup. Gardner bring something that Robinson and Tate lack...the ability cut it up fied, off the zone read, with speed AND power....
