I feel like this game came at a good time. It knocks all the "national title" hopes out of a lot of people's heads. We need to block, tackle, execute and play aggressive , but have to mentally prepare for every game every week more than all of those things.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I agree||
Great update! Thanks for it!
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I agree... It often goes uncalled.||
But let us think back to last year vs Bama. Dee Milliner THREW Roy Roundtree our of bounds and there was no call. I feel like we got away with one on that... Also the Funchess PI call looked to be a bit more official. Considering it was on the goal line I'd say it was a good call.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||It looked like CMU played||
It looked like CMU played around Frank Clark. Leaving him unblocked and allowing him to over commit. I think he was basically schemed around.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Can we please...||
Can we please talk a bit about the Freshman RB tandem? I mean, Green looked like a buick when he hit the second level on his 30 yard run!
|14 weeks 1 day ago||I think Wilson did fine.||
I think Wilson did fine. Safety takes time and he showed an imposing style of play that I feel works well with this defense. Reminds me of Jamar Adams. He made aggressive plays against both the run and the pass. I feel like the overall disposition of the secondary is great. If we can get constant pressure from our front four, this group could make some noise this year for real.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Thank you!||
I completely agree. Can we talk about the bone crushing block Funchess laid down again?
|16 weeks 12 hours ago||Honestly||
I don't care about the rankings. I trust this coaching staff's process of evaluation more than any website and feel like the star grading system doesn't mean anything once they put the pads on at the next level. I spent a summer drooling over Ronald Johnson and realized that he wasn't the player he was hyped to be once I watched him play at USC. We need to bring in guys for this system and our coaches obviously know how to do that.
|16 weeks 14 hours ago||Completes agree||
Toomer, Streets and Alexander were unreal and never get mentioned. What about Greg Matthews?

Plays good D.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Ummm||
What's a "heat attack"?
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Al Borges Needs a Fair Shot||
I agree that the play calling in the second half was stiff and predictable but the fact that he isn't working with his own talent remains. They are recruiting well and are going to have pieces in place for the type of offence they will look to run moving forward. We can't put Borges on the cross for this season. As it has been stated before, last season was a product of huge plays by robinson and hemmingway as well as an overall underdog attitude that had the nation not thinking that Hoke and company could do what they did in the first year with the players they had.
Let's give the staff a break and be thankful for the turn around that was engineered.

Everyone knows that this play calling isn't what we are use to but let me remind you that we only have lost to undefeated teams in the top ten. Alabama could beat the Jacksonville Jags and ND... Well, we had an off day. Stats and Highlights are great but wins and maintaining a humble, classy attitude are what make a program mean something. Also, Al Borges still isn't working with personnel that he brought in. I'm sure everything will work out. Give it some time. Just because we won the sugar bowl at the end of one of the best seasons this program has had in years doesn't mean that we should expect an undefeated season to follow. The goal is the big ten title and we are working to get that.

Hoke gets it.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Hoke Year Two||
Everyone you just mentioned cannot be fairly judged as far as talent goes because of the coaching changes they underwent during their time at Michigan.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Convicted Felon||
Demar Dorsey had his full ride tacked bc of felony charges that were dismissed. I personally think he would have changed out defense as a whole right now but thw university did what it thought was best. This is no different. Frank Clark should be removed from the team as a whole and made an example of.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I will say, I have a few||
I will say, I have a few friends who are Bama fans and they were all really cool about the game. They all mentioned we are in a rebuilding period and brought up how great Hoke has done in the short time he has been there. I feel like Bama fan in general understand that if they were to take the low road it would only discredit the program as a whole. Unfortunately, Ohio fans don't get that, but I blame that on a lot of pregnancy boozing...
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Before people flip out... I||
Before people flip out... I am not saying hopkins should move to HB, I am merely suggesting that we inject a power run scheme into what we are doing. Mix it up.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I agree.||
I never want to be Bama. I want us to return to "The Old Michigan" and I feel like we are making strides to do so. I personally feel like it would be nice to see us line up in the "I" formation and try to pound the ball a little. I would like to see more of a power running game. I realize that the "big play" potential goes down if we do that, but I think that it would possibly lengthen the time of the drives and potentially wear the opposing defense down. Run Hopkins behind Kerridge and force teams to respect the fact that we are going to put drives together and score without Denard throwing a deep slant or taking it to the house when a play breaksdown. Just a thought.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Schofield isn't horrible. He||
Schofield isn't horrible. He was facing possibly the best 3-4 in college football and they were just worn down. I think it's easy to say that the Michigan LOS was in for a long night. As a player has the size and technique to play well in the big 10 and compete for all conference honors.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Also, Taylor at CB.||
I think he is a playmaker with speed. I know Avery will get the reps with Blake out but I would like to see if Taylor can step up and compete for that position. I saw him try and strip the ball on a tackle last night that makes me think with more chances he could help the D make some turnovers.
At this point we need young guys stepping up and taking on bigger roles the same way blake did last year.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Like A Boss||
I would like to see more of James Ross. He had the penalty on Special Teams but I like his instincts. He reminds me of Obi or Jon Beason.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Mighty Mouse||
While Gallon is greatly undersized for the position he remains one the best playmakers on the team. He has good hands, speed and he is very elusive. I think the bomb he caught from Denard that eventually put us on the board is a play he is capable of making once a game. I feel like his number needs to be called again and again if Roundtree continues to struggle with his involvment.
In other news, DG looked good. Raw, but good. I personally would love to see him become more physical than he played lastnight. The catch millner was able to break up that stalled a drive in the second quarter was his to make. I look forward to him using his frame and strength.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||All American?||
C'mon. All Big 10.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Sitting Lewan...||
You mean for the penalties?
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Clark?!||
Frank Clark will be cut by next season because he stole a 800 dollar laptop instead of going to the weight room...
|1 year 14 weeks ago||It's game day||
I'm just trash talking brother. Pumping people up. You know what I'm saying right? Not every post has to be in "espn commentator mode" does it?
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Leadership Year||
This is Denard's year to progress as a feild general. He has bought into the system and applied himself to the Al Borges Offensive Scheme. We all remember what the second year in Rich Rod's Spread was like. That is a indication of Denard's abilities unfolding once he is comfortable in an offense. GRILL UP YOUR BURGERS AND OPEN YOUR BEERS BECAUSE WE GOT A DAMN GAME TO WATCH!
|1 year 14 weeks ago||The Heat||
I use firstrow a lot and find it to be the best. They often have multiple links and for a game on this kinda stage they will have plenty of links.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I kinda like that everyone is picking Bama...||
The reality is that they are a heavy favorite... but that doesn't mean we don't lace them up (some leave them untied) and play the damn game though!
