Absolutely loved that Nuss started out the game by playing to our strengths with the screens and putting our superior athletes in space. He could've said WE WILL RUN POWER ESTABLISH RUN IMPOSE WILL and caused a lot of consternation amongst fans and confidence issues among players by getting stuffed (which our early run attempts suggested we would). So glad he played basketball on grass until we got rolling a little bit and loosened them up.

We looked great while the game was still competitive. Great. Just that one big run up the gut that was just a rock-paper-scissors luck call on our blitz. I'll take a couple of those every game if it means we're aggressive and physical.
Second and third units looked like garbage, but hopefully we don't have to see too much of it this season.

Couldn't have asked for a better start to the game here. Even the OL has looked below average outside of a few plays.

Beastly defense. I'll take that 15-yard run as the price for aggression.

What in the Sam Hill is that call? Why can't you jump over a blocker?

We've taken our 6-month-old to a couple of MLB games and he's done fine. Stayed for the whole game. We wear him in a carrier and just have to walk around every once in awhile and feed him. All kids are different, though. Those weren't as loud and rambunctious as M stadium, though. Although the App State game might be your best chance.

1-tech, but yeah, I think they'll redshirt him if Pipkins, Hurst, and Glasgow all stay healthy. I imagine the top three guys will all play, though, given this staff's history of rotating defense linemen.

Isn't that kind of sad, though, for Glasgow? Last fall camp it was Joey Burzinsky as the starting guard all August. Except not. Poor guys.

Have you ever transcribed a 15-minute-long interview? Soul-crushing work. Let the guy have a little fun.
|1 week 5 days ago||If you think about it, OSU||
If you think about it, OSU has had an insanely talented QB for almost a decade. You could argue that Troy Smith, Pryor, and Miller were all the best QB in the nation during their time. It'd be nice if they could have just a good QB for the next couple cycles. I have nightmares of Smith, Pryor, and Miller slashing through us.

I feel bad for guys like Ryan Glasgow who always seem to be used as tools in some obvious ploy by the coaches to motivate a more talented player.

Aye aye aye, it was only a matter of time. Would you care to educate me on what makes a real fan now?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I want Michigan to win||
I want Michigan to win football games and am tired of excuses for managerial incompetence. Lots of players don't pan out or end up having the talent to play at this level, and that's too bad, I guess. It's the coaches' job to figure out who those guys are and not throw them to the wolves. Sorry if my picture offended you--the oline situation is just getting to the level of absurdity for me.

I agree with all this. I love Devin's ability. I wonder sometimes if Morris could be that third-best QB in the league week in and week out.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I don't have a problem with||
I don't have a problem with Miller. I felt bad for him last year that he was put in a position where he couldn't succeed. Same thing with Bellomy against Nebraska--never should have been out there. My issue is with the way this staff has assessed and coached the offensive line. It's abhorrent. And the fact that M fans are looking at this first team o-line and just nodding is hilarious to me.

Go back and watch the ND game, and tell me it was one of the line's better performances.

Normally I'd agree with you. But Miller was a special case last year with how bad he showed on the field. Like went-into-a-psychological-shell bad. Like Bellomy-versus-Nebraska bad.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The center spot was all but||
The center spot was all but gift wrapped for him last season, and he had the whole offseason to prepare for it.

Miller was not small last year--he was 6'4", 295. That's above average for center.

After last season, your first sentence is more plausible than the reverse.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Miller anywhere on the field||
Miller anywhere on the field is concerning. It doesn't mean he's better than Glasgow; it means he's better than whichever guard Glasgow moves over to replace. Actually, it doesn't mean he's better than anybody since the coaches picked him as the starting center last fall camp, too, and he ended up being worse than any center I saw play college football last season.
A true freshman starting at the most important spot on the line is also concerning. Magnuson at left tackle was one of our only "sure things" on the line this offseason, but I guess not. How people see this development as a positive is baffling to me.
I'm not sure why any Michigan fan would give this staff the benefit of the doubt as far as assessing its offensive line talent after the past two years, but, hey, eat it up.
