this underscores why Borges has to go, and now. yeah, maybe it isn't Xs and Os, but jimmys and joes, but wouldn't it be nice to have both? we're losing lewan, schofield and gallon, three incredibly important players that we can't paper over immediately with replacements. but you know what hides weaknesses while those weaknesses improves? Xs and Os, not asking your players to do what they can't do and keeping things simple by forcing a defense to react to your play rather than relying on your players to have perfect execution. does this sound like borges or the complete opposite of borges?

it's much easier to get to the ball when you have two functioning legs rather than one.

what precisely is the best of al borges? how about an example.

but borges will just be back for moral support right? hoke doesn't mean that borges will be back as OC, right? cuz that would just be silly.

how about: will devin funchess be a tight end or a wide receiver next year?

next up is the bowl game.
|2 days 21 hours ago||i don't think the stats back||
i don't think the stats back up that anecdote. for instance, GERG's defenses went against denard every week and that didn't prepare them to stop spread attacks. i think the data says that good defenses are good independent of the offensive style they're opposing.
|2 days 21 hours ago||it is indeed hard to capture||
it is indeed hard to capture with words how we feel after this game. this game felt like more of a moral victory than any other college football game i've watched in the last 30 years. but i hope brandon, at least, can step back from this game. this offensive performance was an abberation. expecting the abberation to become the norm would ruin next season too.

Will depend on the bowl game. If Borges can prove he can put up points when the team is healthier and could work on some fundamentals in the bowl practices, he probably gets another year. If not, Brandon makes Hoke get rid of him.

Didn't realize Wilson was out. Kept wondering how Furman could play so poorly without getting pulled. I wonder if Ross and Wilson would've made a difference.

I think we're all in agreement: right call to go for 2; poor decision to not move into a different formation.

so was i. i nearly got my ass kicked. that day was among the scariest of my life. when the game was over and i was leaving the stadium, kids were throwing full beer cans at the heads of people wearing michigan clothing. i got hit in the back with one.

if i were king for a day mgoblog memebership could be obtained only by passing a test. and on that test would be animal house, fergodsakes. you're the 400th person who wrote "ah, duh, the germans didn't bomb pearl harbor."

even if there's no source for those rumors, it's reasonable to wonder what will happen to the coach of an underachieving team that keeps losing in crushing fashion and looks completely lost on offense.

steve, i do wish you would post more. what do you mean by an MA epidemic?

ordinarily i'd agree it's useful to gather opinions from objective sources, but not forde. the man is an idiot. how a lousy writer who doesn't understand what he's writing about had the success he has is beyond me.

yeah, this team's problem is that they just don't try hard enough. got it. thanks, al.
|1 week 1 day ago||this is the point at which my||
this is the point at which my greatest fear comes to life, that my single biggest distraction - mgoblog - might disappear. there's a style to the content and writing on this site that makes me come. it's absent on other M blogs, though frequently copied. it's copied on blogs for other teams. but this place was the beginning. i hope i don't see it leave.

of course there could be other factors. no one could ever prove that one factor or another is principally responsible for the regression. but what's frightening is that he is now using the system he claims to specialize in and it's far worse than when he used the system that he purposefully tempered expectations for.
also, the previous two years had the "denard, do something" factor. this doesn't.

same with crawford. i'd consider him a soft commit at this point.
