"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."

I'm not sure the two teams combined will score 12 points.

Well its interesting because people find it interesting.
|1 day 6 min ago||Yes too late. Needs to not||
Yes too late. Needs to not have played more than 30% of the season so it's a couple games late for the medical redshirt.

I think it's 2 games too late for medical redshirt, as he needs to have competed in less than 30% of the season.

Lets go for 3 in a row.
|1 day 36 min ago||Very little difference||
Very little difference between 12 points and 13 points, as it is unlikely that Maryland can score 3 times with a little over a quarter to play. So no risk in going for 2 to make it a 2 touchdown lead.

Not saying they aren't a decent team, just that you can't learn much beating up on a team with a defense onlly slightly better than CMU, and an offense worse than 114 other NCAA teams.

Thought BYU's defense looked good, then looked up UCONN and saw their offense is 115th in S&P rankings, and their defense is 69th. Not sure we will learn much about BYU from this game in relation to Michigan.

I don't know if anyone has seen the Patriots formation where they line up with 4 TEs split out wide and dare opponents to have 4 players who can cover that many big recievers. I'd love Michigan to copy that and line up with Butt, Bunting, Wheatley and Williams.
Here's an article on the formation:

My biggest concern for the MSU game is they always seems to spend months watching Michigan film and are able to exploit something that other teams hadn't found. I'm sure Harbaugh has been made aware of MSU's intense focus on this game and can show some completely different looks to waste all the time MSU spent preparing.

Is the NW defense really that good? I haven't watched them this season.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Our stats on offense are a||
Our stats on offense are a bit depressed considering Harbaugh seems perfectly content to close the playbook once Michigan is firmly on top and just rep stuff for practice against a live defense. a BYU parent said that the players were totally not prepared for MIchigan because Michigan brought an entirely new game plan for this game like an NFL team while BYU just planned to execute their game. That's why plays like the double fake to the sidelines then hitting the TE up the middle was so open.
Defense definitely needs to force more turnovers, but it's very impressive how stingy they have been on defense without forcing that many turnovers.

Kawakami's twitter feed is pretty funny. I get the impression his take on the Harbaugh to Michigan stuff last year was more because he was a huge Harbaugh fan and didn't want him to leave.

Not a bad idea on Hankerson, I'll look into it. Can't afford to have a 3rd WR unable to play sitting on my bench with Jeffrey and Bryant.
|1 week 5 hours ago||I would go Robinson, NE||
I would go Robinson, NE defense isn't great and they will need to try to score a lot to keep up with that O.
|1 week 5 hours ago||I would go Randle and Lewis.||
I would go Randle and Lewis. Baltimore is a solid defense and Gio isn't even the starter. I have him on my bench but I think for now last week was a fluke. And NE has shown no signs of going away from Lewis though you never know with BB. I avoided Lewis after I got burned by NE RBs the last couple of seasons but am kicking myself now over not picking him up week 1. My league this year everyone seems to pick up the hot waiver wire picks 1 week before they end up on all the must own lists.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Wish I could but have a bench||
Wish I could but have a bench of Bradford, Deangelo Williams, M Bryant, Matt Jones, A Jeffrey, and Gio Bernard. And I can't find any suitible replacements to play this week. Just couldn't get on the Benjamin train just like everyone else in my league as he went through the waiver wire unclaimed. Was going to go for Crabtree but he was taken first pick and I know 3 people ahead of me were also after him.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Not sure if it's good or bad||
Not sure if it's good or bad that I have no choices this week. With Alshon Jeffrey and Martavis Bryant on my bench I'm forced to start Charles Johnson as my WR3 and Doug Martin as my flex. I took the long play this year drafting Bell and Bryant and somehow I'm 2-0 when I was kind of expecting 1-1 or 0-2 in order to pick up some break out stars on the waiver wire.

Maybe the USC game was a fluke and Stanford still treats the USC game the way Harbaugh did when Carroll was there. Similar to Hoke and OSU, looks like a completely different team against their rivals.

If that second link is correct then fuck SAE, the color red has no place on Michigan's campus.

He probably was being vindictive. Figured if the kid wanted to transfer a few months after taking up a spot in his class, why not prevent him from going to the schools he was also considering at the time.

Yes, Flanken is a Jewish term for the cut and they are clasically braised and served with horseradish. Many supermarkets won't have them unless there are large Jewish populations or Korean populations.
|1 week 3 days ago||Considering you only cook||
Considering you only cook them for 6-8 minutes even getting to medium well still leaves plenty of fat. I just found that when I went medium rare as I do for other steaks they are tough, and cooking more made them more tender. In Argentina they would put them off to the side after initial cooking and let them slowly cook to well done there and they were still super tender and moist.
|1 week 3 days ago||They would all work on a gas||
They would all work on a gas grill. And most people who are serious about grilling have both because charcoal is a lot of work for a weeknight and gas is great for dinner or small groups.
|1 week 3 days ago||I first had this cut 15 years||
I first had this cut 15 years ago when I was in Argentina and it would be part of the mixed grill the family I stayed with would make every time they had company. They are also great as a quick dinner if you have a gas grill and want some quick delicious beef without having to worry too much about doneness as these tend to be better cooked medium to medium well due to the high amount of fat.
Another culture that grills the same cut as well is Koreans and it's among the best parts of Korean BBQ. Pretty big indication that this is a great cut when Korea, Argentina, and Texas all cook it on the grill.

DId you actually watch the clip? There's an unblocked guy 4 yards away from him when he releases the ball. Johnson is curving up field as it's thrown, as if he were running a wheel route which does not seem to be the play call. The QB isn't supposed to watch the receivers' route and adjust accordingly on quick plays like that, he needs to know where they will be because he doesn't have time to adjust the throw much after the snap.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm glad someone with a lot||
I'm glad someone with a lot more knowledge about football than I had the same thought. I know Rudock has thrown some bad passes but I wonder if there are issues with other personel groups not doing their jobs that has reflected badly on Rudock. The complete disapearance of Perry after week 1 seems to support that as do Harbaugh's answers to questions about the QB.
|1 week 4 days ago||That's my take too. Rudock||
That's my take too. Rudock has been on campus for only 3 months and he is throwing to 15 different players who all run differently. It's possible Johson has the best acceleration of the RBs and Rudock isn't used to a RB getting upfield as quickly as he did so it was behind him. I feel like people expected Rudck to come in here and just play like he was still at Iowa after a month of practice. It's possible he regressed or was made to look better by Iowa's offense than he really is but I don't think the chances are high.
|1 week 4 days ago||Logicially there may be some||
Logicially there may be some sense to it, a kid who easily changes his mind might be quick to transfer when the going gets tough. And people like to mention all the kids that switch schools a couple times not working out. However, they never take into account the fact that many college recruits don't make the NFL or even become starters.
It would be nice to see the statistics though and compare them to the average success rate of equally ranked recruits. Compare the 5 star flips to average 5 stars, 4 star flips to 4 stars and so on. It would be tough though because there are mitigating factors, like a 3 star committed to CMU who blows up his senior year and gets a Michigan offer, or a kid who doesn't do so well his senior year and the coaches kind of stop talking to him until he gets the hint and decommits.

I believe he went to a private school in CT but is from NJ.
