|1 day 23 hours ago||Notre Dame and Utah game||
Blaming the loss of these games on turnovers is just wrong.
ND was up 21-0 at the half and Michigan hadn't turned the ball over yet. ND's TD that put them up 28-0 came after a UM punt. Only the FG to make it 31-0 came after a UM turnover.
Utah's first FG came after a UM punt. Utah started on their own 3 and drover 79 yds for a FG. Utah's first TD came on a punt return for a touchdown. Utah's FG to make it 13-10 right before half came after Michigan kicked off thanks to Henry's defensive TD. Utah received the ball to start the second half and marched down the field to score a TD. The FG to make it 23-10 came after Michigan didn't make it on 4th down in Utah territory Only one of Utah's scoring drives started in UM territory.

One of OSU's later TD's was a defensive touchdown and OSU's offense did not have their way against the UM defense all game long. In fact, the score was 14-7 late in the second quarter. OSU tied it up right before the half.

Ross - I know he gets dinged some for his size but I remember a couple of plays last year where he absolutely clocked the olineman. So much so that while Ross wasn't credited for the tackles, his aggresiveness and success in taking on the block completely blew up the play. (yeah, two plays is very small sample size but it shows the potential is there??)

Where Hoke's teams, with the exception of 2011, didn't seem to show a ton of improvement over the course of a season, I'm expecting the opposite with Harbaugh. I'm thinking the UM team we see on the field in November will be a much better team than the one we see on the field at the beginning of the year.
So if UM loses to Utah, I don't know if that will be an accurate picture of what we should expect from the team for the next 11 games.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Not quite the same||
but if you put any stock in recruiting rankings, the potential talent for this coaching staff to mold is there. I'm not sure how Hoke did it, but each year under Hoke UM competed with OSU. Despite OSU only losing something like 3 games in Urban's tenure so far, UM's lost the 3 OSU games by 5, 1 and 14 points.

Isn't this a pretty big weekend for recruits visiting AA?
Maybe next week.

might want to have a conversation with you.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agree on Butt||
Probably worded that a bit wrong. Actually, think he can be a stud with the right QB but didn't want to start going all Fred Jackson with hyperbole.
|1 week 3 days ago||Gotta remember||
for most of these guys, they go on to other jobs after their NFL career ends. It's not like they play 3 years and at the age of 25 retire never to work again. They start working another job except they have a nice stash of money to their name unlike most 25 yr olds.
|1 week 3 days ago||Much higher then 300K||
The league minimum is 375K.
Pulled from an article in the Houston chronicle that came up when I googled average NFL salary:
The average salary of an NFL player works out to considerably less when not considering the top earners, but these players still make hundreds of thousands of dollars each. Bloomberg Businessweek says the average salary of an NFL player in 2011 was $1.9 million. The median salary was $770,000. When factoring in a typical signing bonus, these numbers can go up well into the $2-3 million range.
|1 week 3 days ago||This list||
and what the people on it make does not include endorsements. So while NBA players get a great deal of money from shoe and apparel companies, the salary they make on this list is only for what the team is paying them.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm hoping the TE's||
are actually pretty good. Not that they are game breakers but at least it seems on the Iowa UFR's that the TE's weren't utilized a ton. Butt could be pretty good and has shown good hands. Hopefully, Hill can come back strong. He was showing some promise and getting looks in the passing game before he got hurt.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm guessing||
after the first 70-80 passes his arm was rubber. Why Davis kept asking him to pass at that point is a mystery.
|1 week 3 days ago||Ohio State||
used inexperienced QB's all last year and won a NC. Dantonio inserted an inexperienced Connor Cook into the starting lineup in something like game 3 or 4 of the 2013 season and won the Big Ten and Rose Bowl. Wasn't Winston a first year starter when he led FSU to the NC?
|1 week 4 days ago||Doubtful||
the 2001 team wins a NC if Henson comes back. I think it's fair to say they would've had a great shot at making the BCS title game if Henson comes back (especially when you look at the losses UM had in 2001). However, I don't think Michigan beats Miami.
|1 week 4 days ago||For shits and giggles||
|1 week 4 days ago||Coordinator vs position coach||
Just because Gibson is finding success as a defensive coordinator doesn't mean he was a good position coach while he was at UM.
|1 week 4 days ago||You never know||
if Henson comes back and UM loses to Miami in the BCS title game, UM is getting all sorts of publicity and coming off probably the best 5 year stretch in program history since Yost. Who knows how the recruiting and program momentum carries forward.
|1 week 4 days ago||VaTech||
Molk playing on one leg really hurt in that game. Not that the offense would have been dynamic cause Foster is a darn good coordinator but with a healthy Molk I think the offense might have been serviceable.
|1 week 4 days ago||2011 - Michigan often fell behind??||
Only 4 times in 2011 was UM behind on the scoreboard in the second half: ND, Northwestern, MSU and Iowa. There were a few other games where they trailed by single digits in the first quarter or early in the second quarter. Are you saying Borges/Hoke more often then not abandoned their offense in the first or second quarter most of the season if they were behind?
WMU: UM trailed 7-0 in the first quarter. After they tied it at 7-7, UM never trailed again.
ND: trailed 24-7 in the 3rd.
EMU: UM trailed 3-0 in the second. Once they took a 7-3 lead, they never trailed again.
SDSU: Michigan was never behind in this game.
Minnesota: Michigan was never behind in this game.
NU: Michigan trailed 24-14 at halftime.
MSU: Michigan never led after the first quarter.
Purdue: Purdue scored first to take a 7-0 lead. UM tied it at 7 halfway through the 1st quarter and never trailed again.
Iowa: after the halfway point of the 2nd quarter, UM trailed the rest of the game.
Illinois: Michigan was never behind in this game.
Neb: Michigan was never behind in this game.
OSU: Michigan trailed a couple times in this game but both times it was only by 1 point. UM never trailed in the second half.
VT: Michigan trailed most of the first half by 3 and then 6 points. However, UM led at halftime and never trailed in the second half.
|1 week 4 days ago||Sometimes, you're going to be off||
Michigan's defense wasn't just off against Nova, they were awful.
In the other 7 Big Ten games Nova played here are his passing numbers:
PSU: 15-30, 192 yds
OSU: 17-28, 192 yds
Neb: 8-19, 156 yds
Wisky: 5-15, 46 yds
IU: 16-27, 217 yds
MSU: 11-26, 108 yds
Maryland: 28-42, 347 yds
22-39, 404 yds
Other then Maryland, Nova didn't do squat against any other team in conference play.
|1 week 4 days ago||Agree||
I don't think the lost anyone that is irreplaceable. Although, I'm concerned about the Kalis rumors because that would be 2/5 of what could have been the entire oline returning.
|1 week 4 days ago||27 minutes to 15 minutes||
is pretty big. There's no way the defense should have been worn out from being on the field at that point, but then they proceed to give up 2 long TD drives.
Maryland actually had 164 yds rushing on 33 atempts for an average of 5 yds/carry.
|1 week 4 days ago||Not sure but||
Countess, Lewis, Taylor and Stribling all are in the box score.
|1 week 4 days ago||What??||
You might want to go back and check the box score and drive charts for the Maryland game. Michigan dominated the time of possession. Michigan had the ball 34 minutes to Maryland's 26. In fact when Maryland got the ball trailing 16-9 in the 3rd quarter and then went on back to back TD drives, the Michigan defense had only been on the field for 15 of the first 42 minutes of the game.
|1 week 4 days ago||Notre Dame game||
Michigan didn't turn the ball over in the first half but yet ND had a 21-0 after 30 minutes. The 3 TD drives went for 71, 80 and 56 yards.
|1 week 4 days ago||Subject line||
First word in the subject line is 'Hypothetical'.
|1 week 5 days ago||Yeah||
Nebraska hiring Riley is a total head scratcher.
|1 week 5 days ago||Just a guess||
While I agree Pelini didn't leave an insurmountable legacy and he seems to have rubbed some people the wrong way, he won 9 or 10 games every year (9-4, 10-4, 10-4, 9-4, 10-4, 9-4, 9-3). I'm guessing Nebraska didn't bring in Riley with the hope that he goes 9-4 every year. Riley is going to need win and win big probably very early in his tenure if he wants to coach in Lincoln for a while.
