Everyone who was bitching about the coaches not playing Isaac can now shut the hell up. That was a brutal performance from him. I thought the play-calling wasn't as bad as people think. We are getting open WRs downfield, but Rudock just can't seem to hit them. I think he is trying to play it safe on the long balls, because an overthrow is unlikely to be picked. But are those are balls you should be taking a chance on. Meanwhile he throws late and slowly on shorter routes where the potential harm is much higher.

Ruddddduck needs to be able to throw a WR screen that doesn't hit the turf.
|1 week 6 days ago||Noticed that too,||
There were at least two instances where a defender (Henry on one play, I don't remember on the other) was going to come free up the interior and just kill the QB, but the OL flagrantly held. Definitely the right thing for the OL to do, but I couldn't believe they didn't get called.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'd take him||
You guys act like he did something along the lines of Frank Clark, or hell, even Glasgow. Kid picked a school and then didn't like it. That might mean he's difficult to coach, but I leave that up to the coaches. In terms of his character, I'd say that tells us very little about it. If the worst thing you can say about him is that he flaked on a school and he talks about being a play-maker, then as far as you know he's not a bad dude.

I was born on a rainy day. I remember playing Halo back when I was a kid and Michigan football was good. After I graduated from college, I got a job and was busy. Also, I think Rudock looked like balls today against an awful defense.
Is this how we're posting stuff around here now?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Those two throws you picked||
Those two throws you picked were incredibly easy throws. They should be perfect. He also whiffed on a wide open Butt, :), threw a bootleg toss at Kerrridge's feet, and blew the pass to Drake. His completion to Butt was behind him and he slung another interception by throwing late.

Lowered my expectations to seven wins. We're stuck with a bad Qb and need the defense to win games. The improved running game will keep things interesting but teams are just going to stack the box against us.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I thought this was the most||
I thought this was the most worrisome performance of the year. UNLV is God-awful and Rudock was still pretty bad. His struggles with the deep ball were known before the start of the year, but he was tossing shit all over the place today.

Well, I understand not throwing it to Perry. That was like 8 yards short though.

Brian and the rest of us were dead wrong on Rudock. He left Iowa because he wasn't good enough to start. Not because of Frentz death cycle or LOL Iowa. Because he isn't good.

Obviously receivers fault. Butt Should have been 10 feet tall and 4 feet wide. Rudock is awful.

That does not bode well for Michigan. Our basketball recruiting never got the boost from the NC title run that I hoped for.

It's not that we haven't seen botched deep throws before. It's that we haven't seen one that wasn't fukt in years.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||It's the quarterback. It's always been the quarterback.||
QB is the most important position on the field and Michigan has had bad ones for the roughly the past century. Tonight Rudock continued the tradition. The OL didn't look great in run blocking, but it's tough to get a running game going when the defense doesn't respect the passing game. Rudock had at least 2 obvious opportunities to torch Utah and force them to respect the passing game. He shit the bed on both. Throw in two Morris-esque (Garden-esque, if you'd like) interceptions and that's the game. Maybe Iowa benched him because he isn't very good.
The running game would be helped by backs with vision and/or speed, but Michigan has none of those. Smith runs very hard at a very leisurely pace; Green is a bust; and Isaac might end up decent. Johnson would be a big improvement, but I worry about him staying healthy.
The upperclass WR looked good and Butt was great. But we'll be "rebuilding" every goddamn year until we find a QB who doesn't pump out interceptions by the dozen.

I bet Iowa misses Rudock right now.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||A 14 point lead||
A 14 point lead might as well be 45 points because the offense is the same mess its been for forever. You can't blame the defense for not pitching a shutout.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Depressed||
This is just massively depressing. Defense playing tough for the first 3 quarters: check. Rushing game a fucking mess: check. QB worse than the running game: check. If we give up a punt return TD the return to 2014 will be complete.
