I love you DG, except when you unecessarily fumble and throw wacky ints.
He gets helmet sticker.

Good game today, although the 2pt conversion play call I did not like at all.

Last thing i need to see is Nkdemiche blasting through our OL pounding Gardner or Moncrief and Treadwell torching our defense.

On their 4th and 2, were your corners supposed to be so far off the line of scrimmage? Was it a lack of confidence they were giving the receivers so much of a cushion?
“I don’t know if it’s confidence. How about experience? I think that’s something throughout our team guys are learning for the first time.”
This right here is a simple question that most coaches could probably answer with a yes or no IMO. This probably would have been a better question for Mattison seeing as Hoke doesn't really know the play call.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||everyone knows||
everyone knows when:
-Norfleet enters game --- reverse / handoff
-Green enters game --- run
-1st down -- run w/ blitz incoming
- 2nd down -- run w/ blitz incoming
- 3rd down -- max protect pass

Progress was made this presser, although the "I have to do a better job coaching" means absolutely nothing because he's not really an x's and o's guy on either side of the ball so I don't know how he's going to help Borges/Mattison.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Hoke: Can we get a timeframe||
Can we get a timeframe or window of when this supposed execution will take place?
Are you capable of calling plays for an entire game for either the offense or defense?
When you look at film do you understand it?
Have you ever watched yourself on film and thought how you could execute better?
Do you like 1080p or 35 mm film?
Do you place toilet paper on the holder with underhand or overhand dispense method?

".....let's talk about our football experiences that connect us all!!"
This is exactly what we are doing. It just so happens that we all experienced the same thing this Saturday. We wish we alI had a nephew's game to attend Saturday @ 3:30..

not sure how the non x's and o's guy is going to contribute.

It's not hard to gameplan against Al Borges. Everyone has 2 years worth of tape which I'm sure they found tiring to sit through.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||All we can hope for at this||
All we can hope for at this point is to see a better performance on the field from our team. It will still be far off from what we want, but I would really hate to close out this year with the team performing at the same level they've played at throughout the year.

I'd say that this whole season will be viewed as a turning point.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Offense- the obvious OL and||
Offense- the obvious OL and borges. There were two calls that upset me the most one when the game was still close and the other when the game was out of hand.
The zone read on 3rd and 2/3 in MSU redzone that went absolutely nowhere. I know you have to keep the defense honest but I would rather Borges run a quick slant or something in that situation. Maybe we get a PI flag, maybe a TD, maybe an incompletion. I don't know why Boges would think (with our OL) that we'd be capable of gaining two yards on a slow developing play in the redzone against the best defense in the nation.
The other thing that bothered me was the amont of PA when were down 2?-6 in the 4th qtr with like 7/8 minutes left. At that point I was not even mad anymore just found it comical. Gardner played his heart out yesterday and took a beating.
Defense - still playing the bend but don't break defense which upsets me the most. We let MSU's offense move the ball almost at will but were pretty stout in the run defense until the 2nd half. Even if we don't allow a TD we are allowing the opposing teams offense to get into FG territory which still puts points on the board. In 2011 we blitzed alot more and what do you know....we forced more turnovers. I know we had RVB, Martin and Kovacs but those guys aren't nearly as athletic as the players we have now.
I would rather the defense bring the fight to the offense by being more aggressive. If we're not good enough to play more aggressive and we're not excelling at sitting back keeping everything in front of us. What exactly is our identity on defense? I give the defense a little bit of a break beause they are constantly on the field with opponents 25 yards away from FG range.
Coaching - sigh. the team is soft all around, that reflects directly on the coaching staff. I'm not a fan of our scheme on both sides of the ball. Funk better not be here next season and these last few games should be Borges's interview for the OC position that should be filled during the offseason.
Mattison - gets a pass as he is the only reason we have stayed in most game an he is our best recruiter. He needs to get more aggressive on defense moving forward though. None of the top defense's play bend but don't break defense ... they play to get the offense off the field asap.
Hoke- move to a recruiting roll.

The head coach recruits well, Borges only recruits the QB position ... nothing else.

I think the main thing that bothers EVERYONE on this board is the lack of progress seen on the field every saturday. Even lesser teams get better as the season goes along. There is no way that our entire team (off/def) is this inept.
I want Funk gone, and I would like Borges addressed in the offseason.

Our scheme is not designed to get after the QB.... just don't give up the big play which leads to endless 5-9 yd passes putting teams within FG range and hoping we don't let them get a TD.

While it is true that the rules have been skewed to help the offense, teams need to do better on defense. In this day and age your secondary has to be elite, your LBs have to be able to play man coverage and the defense as a whole needs to have great awareness playing zone. I hate watching shooutouts too but nothing is better than watching a defense dominate a great offense.

|6 weeks 5 days ago||Mattison gets a pass from me||
Mattison gets a pass from me although there are things that still bother me with the defensive philosophy. I for one love defenses that are really agressive. I think GMAT doesn't believe our corners are good enough to play man cvg against most of our opponents, before Countess got injured he played a fair bit of man cvg. I know he says they are protecting our safeties and don't want to give up the big play but watching mediocre teams Bill Walsh us to death is frustrating. I would like to see our CB's try to disrupt (press) the WRs quite a bit more. Going forward I would definitely like us to blitz more and not tip our hand as much.
Bottom line is ever since Hoke/Mat/Borges have been here the defense has been worlds better than the offense .... every year.

The play at 3:10 confirms his speed for me, wonder how many more lbs his frame can handle without affecting his athleticism. Would be a great addition to the LB core if we can land him.

I better not see a write up similar to this next week. If in fact that happens I will not be watching michigan football for the rest of this season, for physical & mental health reasons.
All i know is that we should have no problems next year running HB iso,dives etc.
