Agree. Anything top 10 yards per play is elite in my book. I just couldn't easily access that data for 2006, and I wanted a reference point for the last UM defense everyone considered elite.

I think you're being a bit harsh. The defense is number 8 nationally after 4 games and two of those are against decent to good offenses. They're allowing 261 yards per game and this is without generating a buttload of turnovers. The 2006 defense finished the year allowing 254 yards per game and is the only top-10 defense UM has had in like the last 15 years. And that was before the proliferation of really good spread offenses everywhere. If you don't think a top 10 defense in yards per game is elite, then I don't think you're going to ever really be satisfied.

Yeah, but doesn't his daughter and grandkids live in AA now too? I mean, he could obviously retire, but if he wants to continue coaching, it wouldn't be a strech to see him stay if an incoming HC wanted him.
|2 hours 15 min ago||There's too much actual||
There's too much actual talent on the 2014 squad, and the defesne is actually really really good to repeat a 2008. If 2008 repeats, then, damn, probably the biggest coaching fail this side of Charlie Weis.

Spread punt because obviously. This may be one of the least actual impactful things on the team right now, but it's a bull headed stubborness to not use something that will help your team, and I want to see that changed.
I wouldn't change anything on the D I think. Maybe press more? I still like the press and if Lewis and Peppers can pull it off, I say go with it. But honestly, it's the number 8 D in the nation even after facing two pretty good offenses. Still hasn't let anyone over 300 yards, and is still down some starters. It's pretty freaking awesome. Whoever the next HC is, I hope Mattison stays. If the D keeps up like this, it has finally reached that elite status.
As for the offense? God, who knows? It's got significant flaws. I think using Gardner more as a running threat will mitigate some of it. Like not just rolling him out, but calling QB draws and isos. I honestly don't know if the read option will work great because I don't know if he's practiced it enough to make the reads properly. Also, just arm punt to Funchess more.

If they continue with the current trend, then yeah, they are kind of elite
|1 day 13 hours ago||Defense is good. Still||
Defense is good. Still haven't let anyone get over 300 yards and ND and Utah are probably pretty darn good offenses.

Meet him in Rome. Really nice guy. Good coach too.
|1 day 16 hours ago||This is exactly my feeling.||
This is exactly my feeling. The entire program is the ill. The coaches and AD are just the symptom that result from it.

Because Hoke, that's why.

I hope the program is happy with itself. It asked for this, and it received it.

Hoke is done
|1 day 17 hours ago||I feel the same way. The||
I feel the same way. The team after 2011 seems to be underperforming its perceived talent or potential. The coaches also seem to put the team in bad positions.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Just need to stop being||
Just need to stop being sloppy. But that's a lot of the problem the last three years isn't it?

Keep Mattison. Guy is pretty good.
|1 day 18 hours ago||The more and more I see of||
The more and more I see of this team since 2011 the more and more I just have no faith in the head man. Just so damn sloppy always. Just always something going wrong. Taken each point individually, it's fluky. But at some point, it's a reflection of the coaches and program as a whole.
|1 day 18 hours ago||How can anyone say the||
How can anyone say the special teams are derpy? It is no more or less than it has ever been and no more or less than the position it has been put in.

UM program fucking falling apart right now

I mean, that's where you're always supposed to tackle a guy.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I believe this team can be||
I believe this team can be good under Hoke, but I'm at the point that I don't think UM will ever be elite with him.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Michigan will never be back||
Michigan will never be back until it's ready to evolve past it's own ego. Which may be never.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Yeah, all those deserved more||
Yeah, all those deserved more than he got. And if it's cumulative, it deserves more than 1 game. I suppose I didn't consider plain 'ol incompetence on the FSU staff and such...
|2 days 11 hours ago||Is there something else going||
Is there something else going on? A full game for being and asshole? I mean if you want to sit him until the sexual assault allegations are investigated, that would make sense. But this? Kind of weird.
|2 days 19 hours ago||If Auburn did not use any||
If Auburn did not use any illegal means like hidden cameras and such to figure out the signals, then there is absolutely no wrong doing. If AU was able to just look across the field and deduce the signals, then that's really good coaching on AU's part, and poor planning on KSU's part. I hate that it's always implied that it's a dirty thing if you look at someone's hand movements and then figure out what they're planning on doing. Is it dirty to jump the snap cout if you figure out the center's pattern's? Hell no.

So we sure Taylor is still out? Would really be nice if he was back facing this team...

What else could they do? They threw a bunch of money at him. And Manning is a great recruiter as well.

Pulling for AU because I would take a 4 team SEC playoff over MSU or OSU getting into the playoff.
