Kill the feedback loop and watch what happens. As much as officials always say they aren't influenced by coaches and fans they clearly are and every study ever done confirms it. It's pretty easy to fix but to do would acknowledge that they're influenced today which is why they won't do it. Put officials in sound deadening headphones so they get no feedback from crowd or coach. Basketball tried that a few years ago and the results were pretty remarkable- home court advantage disappeared.

Looks like somebody's never been to East Lansing! I think they've got that award down cold.
In fairness to my dumb, bitter brethren here the anti-Michigan shit Braylon took was after season #3 in which he specialized in dropping wide open passes thrown directly to his stomach. His first two years here you nevr heard a world said about it. And Braylon brought a lot of it on himself with the WR diva routine that I dont see Peppers pulling for a second.
I think he would be loved here quickly. Just like Thom Darden, George Lilja, Steve Everitt and especially Leroy Hoard were.
|1 week 6 hours ago||Elite M players are wild cards||
Starting with Peppers. He might be the most interesting man in the Green Room come draft day. I've seen mock drafts where he goes as high as #3 to the Bears and as low as out of the first round entirely. Personally I really want the Browns to take him at #12 (assuming Samuels is gone) to bookend the defense with Garrett but who the hell knows.
Charlton is another one who I've seen mid first round, bottom first round and then out altogether. Given that teams tend to overdraft QBs and D linemen my guess would be his combine performance will be critical to where he lands.
Lastly Lewis is all over the mock draft board. I've seen him go as high as #7 to the Chargers and as low as out of the first round. Another guy whose measureables at the combine will move the draft needle up or down.

I've heard that before someplace.
|1 week 3 days ago||First and foremost THANK YOU for posting this||
Huge +1 to you for doing the recap and providing the link.
But can I vent for a second? I'm so sick of the "Michigan is still in it" recruitnik talk regarding recruits. Recruiting is zero-sum-game and Michigan, along with every other school interested in the recruit, is "in it" until they decide. But because finishing #2 isnt any better than finishing #100 what the Hell does "still in it" really mean? Because as we well know - people change their minds all the time and committed doesnt mean jack-squat until signing day unless they're an EE.
And lastly one would imagine a world in which a recruit saying "F Michigan" on camera would mean we're most definitely "out of it" but apparently not (and that's a good thing). It sure seems like the insiders and the coaching staff have no real idea what the kid is going to do until they do it.
|1 week 3 days ago||So true||
I recruited for Michigan in the early 90's and the only schools we worried about were OSU, Notre Dame and Penn State (somewhat). Michigan State existed as for sports as they did for academics, a nice back-up school to go to if you couldnt get in to where you really wanted to go.
Things are basically back to normal. Normal isnt what's happened over the past 7-8 years. Normal is this which is why we lead the series 69-35-5 and that's with them winning 7 of the last 9 games.
|1 week 3 days ago||For what it's worth||
All quiet here on the issue and Jackson continues to say he expects Pep to return to the Browns.
|1 week 3 days ago||It's true he flipped||
First morning there he got some breakfast and served him grits. He said "what in the fuck is that on my plate????" and was told it was considered quite the delicacy in Alabama and just wait till he tries them with squirrel. Yummy!

Wow gotta do not one but two shots already thanks to OP. Have to stay true to my "every time a Harris thread is posted - do a shot" vow.
|1 week 4 days ago||Update||
Jackson just now said he expects Hamilton to stay with the Browns and that "we very much want him to stay". He also said he will continue to call the plays next year so if that matters to Pep he might leave.
|1 week 4 days ago||Not really||
He was the OC but Jackson called the plays on gameday. And as noted by Swazi - The offensive fell apart as our QB situatiion became a complete joke. The problems on offense had much more to do with lack of pass blocking and Jackson tending to fall in love with the pass and forgetting about Crowell than anything Pep did or didnt do.
|1 week 4 days ago||FWIW||
Multiple reports here in Cleveland that the Browns do not want to lose him and some are speculating that this is being done to force Jackson to give up the play-calling and turn it over to Hamilton. This year Pep was the OC but Hue called the plays and many are speculating that Hamilton is using the job offer as leverage to increase his scope of responsibilities with the Browns.
Not saying that is happening but thought it was worth mentioning. Will sort of come down to which career path Pep wants to pursue. Staying with Browns would help his pro career - moving to Michigan would help him in college.

Watched whole game and Caris looked good. Tied Lebron up immediate once he entered game for a jump ball (that didn't go well) and after a slow start (missed a couple of 3's badly) he settled down and started taking the ball to the hole. Hit a couple of LONG 3's and was definitely the Nets "go to guy" as the closed a 20 point Cav lead down to 6. Had a good look at another 3 that would made it a one possession game but it rimmed out and the Cavs took control from there.
Very aggressive at driving to the rim and a better long range shot than I remember. Held his own on D (needs to eat a sandwich-VERY overmatched size-wise) and passed ok.

This has nothing to do with her botched calls in Browns games This has to do with the fact that she's terrible at her job and if she was male she'd have been fired long ago. But because the NFL has only ONE female official they will not remove her lest the gnashing of teeth and rendering of garments from those more worried about how things appear image-wise than getting the call right.
And Triplett's just as bad if not worse and he's the head of that crew.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||Right - cause the NFL has SO many female refs correct?||
Watch that crew more than a couple of games and my guess your opinion would change. Cause the Browns blow they get assaigned the lowest rung of the NFL officiating team week in and week out which means I got to watch these idiots on more than a few occasions.
She's terrible. She's Incompetent and clearly has zeo business in the NFL and if you dont believe she's there solely because she's a female then I dont know what to tell you.

|2 weeks 9 hours ago||Early 90's Lions||
Say what you will about them but those teams were FUN to watch. The "run and shoot" opened up huge lanes for Barry to run through and if Andre Ware had turned out to be the QB everybody thought (hoped) he'd become it would've been interesting to see how those teams would've fared. As it was the instablility at QB - Peete, Kramer & Ware - kept them from ever really unleashing the full capabilities of that team IMO.
Run n Shoot not terribly different schematically to spread to pass offenses today with multiple route options based on defensive alignments.

I went to almost every home game from 1988 through 2014, at least one road game a year and five bowl games during those 26 years. Drove up 3 hours from Cleveland every home Saturday to do it and had an absolute blast. But after 2014 i was so pissed off and discouraged I gave up my seats and found that watching the game on my TV within easy access of beer and food (and no three hour drive to and from game) was pretty OK too.
Once you get out of the habit of doing something it's hard to get re-engaged. Michigan's got it going good right now with Harbaugh thank goodness but I have a hard time seeing attendance to any sporting event not going down as time and the qualtity of home viewing improves.

Absolutely no reason to play a tough OOC schedule - none. The bowl committee this year sent a pretty clear message that they focus on wins first, schedule someplace down the line. Look at the OOC schedule for the final four:
Alabama: USC (tough), Western Kenucky, Kent State, Chatanooga
Clemson: Auburn (tough), Troy, S. Carolina State,
Ohio State: Bowling Green, Tulsa, Oklahoma (tough)
Washington: Rutgers, Idaho, Portland State
One tough game for three - zero for Washington. Maybe schedule one tough game....maybe.

If you are sure you are bringing him back no matter what the outcome you announce this week to remove the distraction of his tenure from the team.

OSU's agenda is winning football games. Full stop. They don't give two shits about the PC crowd and would hire Briles if they thought he was an upgrade.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Politely disagree there||
You're referring to the "Braylon" treatment I'm guessing. To be fair to (what's left of) the Browns fans Braylon didnt take any crap for being from Michigan until year three when he began to specialize in dropping perfectly thrown balls. Years one & two you never heard a word about his background.
Look - if we actually do the smart thing (and God knows the odds are very stacked against that) and pick Jack #1, Peppers (or Samuels) #12 and resign Collins the Browns would have three playmakers on D. Peppers would become our version of Polamalu - a vicious hitter who just doesnt miss tackles. Put him at SS and lock down the back of the defense.
Like I said - makes too much sense though to happen. What will prolly happen is we'll trade out of #1 to aquire even more 4th round picks in 2019 and then we'll grab somebody nobody's heard of at #12.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||I was there||
What made the "experience" not worth the price of the ticket was the final score and the absolute ass-kicking we took from Bama. Not sure people would feel the same way about the experience if the final score of the game was reversed.
That game was the beginning of the end of the Hoke era. Didnt know it at the time but it was literally allmost all downhill from there.

Maybe its because I'm a 57 year old cynic by nature but I'll admidt I questioned it. The timing of the announcement with no advance word of the injury coupled with alcohol, coupled with the frustration of the game coupled with him not being on the sidelines and the recent announcements by Fournette & Mcaffrey made me openly question if he was really injured or not. Got into a bit of twitter debate with WD over it as a matter of fact.
Glad to be wrong. But I'll own up to being "one of those guys" last night.

The satellite camps REALLY set him off. The idea that us northerners would have the temerity to invade the south AGAIN was the catalyst that put him on a southern-fried jihad against all things Harbaugh & Michigan.

I've been looking forward to a response just to learn more about it.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Cliffnotes||
1. Harbaugh is a loon. He's not that great of a coach and his shtick is getting old.
2. Michigan fans are delusional and live in a make believe world where we think we actually deservied to be included in the final four.
3. Michigan football has won 1/2 of a National Championship in the last 70 years yet they act like they're Alabama, OSU, USC, Penn State and Nebraska all rolled up into one.
He HATES us.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||F the SEC||
God do I love rooting against any team in the SEC. During bowl season nothing in college football outside of a Michigan win makes me as happy as an SEC loss. Yesterday Finnebaum went off on Harbaugh, Michigan and Michigan fans on Mike & Mike and all I could think of was how fun it wouldve been to watch him during the Arkansas implosion.
I bet TCU -3 and Nebraska +10 in a parlay today so hopefully I can profit from their misery.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
The ones who havent played all year cause they're not very good.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Sadly no||
He's only about 75% and cant drive the ball on out patterns and God help us all if he takes a hit just below his rotator cuff in his left shoulder cause then I doubt he'll be able to throw a deep ball either due to pain.
But the team isn't letting this be known cause then FSU could gameplan for it so PLEASE don't tell anybody. It'll just be our little secret.

Other than all the points they scored they were fucking terrible. On 3 of the four scoring drives against us they had two incompletions and a sack against them.

I bet exactly opposite of you.
Parlay'd Northwestern +4 & WVU +3 and then bet WVU straight up on the money line -130.

So if I'm reading your question correctly in the OP and your response in thread YOU are currently living in the bay area.about 20 minutes from Levi Stadium.
And you thought "hey, I'll bet my friends on MgoBlog who, for the most part live several thousands of miles away from here will be able to give me parking advice for a stadium I live about 20 minutes from cause I'm thinking of going to a random bowl game Michigan is not playing in."
Do I have that right?

|3 weeks 1 day ago||Harbaugh love or hate him||
To me Harbaugh is a lot like Bill Laimbeer in some ways. Growing up a Pistons fan I LOVED Bill and his style of play but definitely understood why other teams/fans hated him. Same with Jim. As a Michigan fan I love the guy but I definitely get why he'd rub other fan bases raw.
I'm glad he's our coach too.

I had heard tell of this game. Legend had it there was a game Bo coached once where he didnt start the game with a dive off right tackle. Folks that was there claimed he threw not one, but two deep passes to start the game but I said "naaaa - cant be." I watched, either in person or listened on the radio to pretty damn near all the games ol Bo coached for Michigan and in each and every one I could remember he started the game with the same play. A tailback dive off right tackle. Shoot - some fellers claimed it was more likely to see the gad-durn sun rise in the west than it was for Bo to start a game with any other play than a tailback dive off right tackle.
That there game boys is a Unicorn, plain and simple.

Coached youth footbal for about 10 years and the one play that worked every single time I called it was the TE throwback pass. It works for 8 year olds, high school, college and pros. For reasons I've yet to figure out there is apparently no defense allignment known to man that accounts for a TE to drag back against the formation after a short delay.
I think if I get back into coaching I'm going to call a game that is 100% TE throwback passes. My guess is it would work well into the 4th quarter.
And Durkin sucks.

If only there was somebody who looked at every play of a Michigan game after the fact and published what he saw after watching the film. If only that person was fairly unbiased as it pertains to officiating and had a platform, a blog let's say, that allowed them to be heard by a lot of people and put the issue to rest once and for all.
If only someone did something where the game and each play of the game was under further review.

Help out the better team. And what made me sick was he actualy believed that was the way things were suppose to be. That the officails were in place to "help out" OSU.
