That. Was. Awesome. That has to be the craziest thing to happen in NFL draft history because it unfolded publicly right in front of our eyes.

I think it's quite a jump to assume that since Durkin was interested in the Maryland job that he didn't put in any work to beat OSU. I have seen zero evidence of that, other than the fact that a) he was hired by Maryland and b) Ohio State beat us soundly. OSU was the reigning national chaampion and had lots of good pieces. It's not out of the realm of possibility that Michigan just biffed and that OSU just upped their game. After all, they have been kicking our butts for over a decade.

I don't have great faith in ESPN's rankings, but I do/did think Holloman's decommitment was a loss for us. The guy's big and can run.

Yep, good ol' Steve Shitnpanski from Hamtramck. He's a real load to bring down.

New Mexico currently has 4 players in the NFL. The only states with fewer are Maine, Vermont, North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Wyoming.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I don't know if building hype||
I don't know if building hype is the main goal. I think one reason is to have more time to evaluate prospects to see who emerges from the pack. It's also a whole lot easier to add a star than it is to remove one. If you name 30 kids as 5-stars and by the end of the cycle, 25 of those names have changed, you have some upset kids/parents/coaches/fans. It's better to be safe and maybe remove 3-5 of those names down the road rather than 15-25.

Yeah, he had 7 catches for 131 yards and 2 TDs at wide receiver last year.

Right. I'm not trying to get down on Wroblewski. I'm just trying to point out the strengths/weaknesses of the scheme and run fits. It was a nice run by Isaac, but I shrugged my shoulders about the WR/OL/LB/DB play from the walk-ons all night. I can't get too mad about Ken Sloss getting bested by Kareem Walker Jr. or Drake Harris, Jared Wangler not being able to get separation, etc. They're walk-ons for a reason and they're doing their best.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I see what you're saying||
I see what you're saying about the MLB being a help defender on a power play, but this is not power, per se. This is more of a double iso. The Hill-on-Washington kickout block is more of an iso block than a kickout, because Washington is not setting the edge.
Meanwhile, I'm sure Brown has an answer for this, but the problem with the scheme here (IMO) is that we seem to literally have three players playing C gap (Charlton, Washington, Pearson). The one guy with B-gap responsibility (Bush) plays it will, but that extra gap is created by the extra back in the backfield.
I think this defense is fine if Wroblewski plays A gap and if Pearson steps up to support the B gap to become that extra defender. It's not ideal, but neither is playing two high safeties against essentially a Power I formation. I don't know what Wroblewski (a.k.a. the MIKE linebackers) is taught to do on plays like this, but we tell our linebackers not to abandon their gaps until the back reaches the lineman's heels.

I don't think what happened there with Ulizio is anything noteworthy. Wormley's just staying in his gap. If Ulizio screwed that up, it would be a *huge* red flag.
|2 days 17 hours ago||I don't know enough about||
I don't know enough about Brown specifically to know exactly what he teaches in the defense, but there's either a problem with alignment or with the players filling their responsibilities. Wroblewski biffed his gap assignment, IMO, but you also have Washington and Pearson to help fill the alley. I have seen some defensive coordinators use that safety (Pearson) to fill a gap up front, although I'm not enamored with that idea as a coordinator. It seems like a major flaw in that defensive scheme to have Wroblewski accounting for two gaps, but then again, run support can be an issue when you play two high safeties.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I agree that it's a tough||
I agree that it's a tough play, but that's still his gap. The thing about an extra offensive gap being created is that you need one of your players at the point of attack to win his one-on-one battle with a blocker. In Wroblewski's case he abandoned his gap and totally lost track of the ball carrier. I won't be too hard on him, either, because he's a walk-on who switched positions during the spring, but I would still expect a starting MIKE to play that better.

I believe Bailey is the last son (Braylon, Berkley, Bailey). I'm not sure if there are any daughters.

For me it's not about "doing absolutely nothing wrong." It's about the punishment fitting the crime. I think a four-game suspension is too much. If he's suspended at all, it should be for one or two games only.

LOL. Well, I could have told you the general scoop from memory, but I pulled that blurb from my website. The specific stats would have been beyond my recollection.

|5 days 11 hours ago||Maybe some people thought||
Maybe some people thought that way, but he had a fair offer list (Cal, Iowa, Minnesota, MAC schools) and a decent star rating (3-star, #626 overall). Michigan took three guys rated lower than him in 2013 (Reon Dawson, Da'Mario Jones, Khalid Hill), and I think Edwards would have been just as effective as Ross Taylor-Douglas. I didn't really want Michigan to pursue him, but it wouldn't have been that much of a head-scratcher.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Meh, he's a Big Ten player||
Meh, he's a Big Ten player transferring to a MAC program within the state, and he's both the brother and the son of former Wolverines. That's more on topic than the vast majority of "OT" threads.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Woods was a 3-star defensive||
Woods was a 3-star defensive end who failed to qualify for admission to Michigan. His original goal was to attend a junior college and work his way back to Michigan, but that opportunity never materialized (JUCO credits are notoriously difficult to transfer to Michigan). Woods played two seasons of football at Bakersfield Community College in California, tallying 80 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks as a sophomore. He then transferred to Kansas, where he made 4 tackles as a redshirt junior in 2009. As a senior in 2010, Woods had 13 tackles.
