2 point conversion goes our way and we are not even having this conversation! One play!

I read this quote the other day and thought of Nuss vs Borges coaching styles.
"I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times" -Bruce Lee-
Nuss will not over complicate this young line and make sure they are good at a few things unlike Borges who had many over complicated plays/ blocking schemes.

Didn't see the OT: so I thought middle linebacker, what!?? Sorry it's football season now!

Since he was a WR, I wish the victim would have saw him a split second early and angled his head down and toward the punch resulting in his hand hitting his forehead and shattering. This way he couldn't catch a football for the next few months while he is sitting on his butt at home with all the free time he will now have!
|1 week 5 days ago||Day 1 of padded practice and||
Day 1 of padded practice and we want to read Hoke/ Nuss minds. We have no idea why these were the guys. It could be as simple as a cramp in Kali's leg today or hoke knows Kali's is solid at a spot and wanted to motivate a few guys to get the point across that we will need you ready at all times this year. Especially the young guys. If you have ever coached before there have been times you did something for a certain reason and everyone freaked out without knowing why.
Example: I once told my QB in a game not take off and run if a play broke down. Either buy time and find someone down field or throw the ball away. We were some much better than this team that I wanted him to use this oppertunity to keep his eyes down field and find receivers ect. Anyways everyone other than the coaches was freaking out but it was to help develope him and WR group.
Let's all relax until we have more info.

We need to have an as good or better season than UCLA if we want to pull KLS from the west coast. I noticed he said , "it's a winning program there now" referring to UCLA. They should have a good year and will prob be tough to beat for him. However I am optimistic about Mich season and you know when these kids visit campus they love it!

Not only can't Hoke close he can't get the "big recruits" to commit. " lol I remember those days too.

He must like what he is seeing from the O Line up there!! Great pick up and great class coming together !
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||I turned on the ESPNU Auburn||
I turned on the ESPNU Auburn vs Bama game to check out what Nuss offense may look like. 1st play: shot gun spread out run play with a nice cut back for big yards. Play 2: motion and a screen pass. Someone had to explain this play because I had been watching Michigan the past 3 years and didn't understand what was going on!
Seriously, I am very excited. It seems Nuss will do what ever he needs to do with the players to make the offense work instead of pounding his head against a wall like I felt we did last year at times. I expect more 3 WR sets spreading the field a bit more because of our young O line

It's going to be like catching Lightning in a bottle for opposing defenses!
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I loved what I saw about not||
I loved what I saw about not taking the sack. He ask Devin what he should do in that situation and once he gets the answer he lays into him a little bit to drive home the point! No more sacks and neg yard plays is a big focus for this team.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I agree with almost||
I agree with almost everything you said but I think that Hoke may have kept Al if a great option like Nuss didn't come available. His seat was extremely hot but unless a guy like Nuss came along I don't know if he was going to get fired. Just my feeling on the matter, but I am glad we got the Nuss!!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||My friend studied this at||
My friend studied this at BGSU. Went out took samples and came up with some sort of algorithm which used satellites to track these blooms. (Way over my head). He tried to sell this to the city and/or the EPA and they did not want it. I always thought he was just a crazy tree huger but I was wrong.

Trust me I am probably more critical of the City of toledo than you Blue-by-u but being happy that Toledo is not part of Michigan because of this problem and implying you are better, is inappropriate in this instance.

I think adults can shower but not kids but we are getting conflicting reports.

It makes me think about how different the off season out look might have been if we had just converted the 2pt conversion. The doom and gloom would be more hope and optimism. I am just glad that football talk is here and we can stop analyzing last year and focus on this year.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It stinks losing out on a||
It stinks losing out on a great recruit but when it comes to RB and DBs I feel like we are stacked with talent. When it come to the Run game we really need to focus on the OL because we are set with RB now with the addition of TY. With these guys I would settle for a small crack in the line to run through, imagine a legit hole for them to actually run through.
As for wishing him luck on the field. I don't if he goes to OSU. Let be real about this, we can't wish every recruit we don't get success on the field. In life yes on the field no. (Also no injuries)
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I think for the most part we||
I think for the most part we know what we are going to get. We have all seen Alabama's offense the last 2 yrs. I doubt we will get the same production but it will look similar. I think we have a worse RB run game than Bama but Nuss will use Gardners legs a lot more that He did with Mccaron.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I asked Nuss at the Coaching||
I asked Nuss at the Coaching clinic about no huddle vs huddle and high tempo vs slowing the game down out of each no huddle. His answer was basically : we will do all of that stuff but only if we think we will be getting a real advantage. I took his answer as we are going to huddle but get to the line to check plays but they will not go no huddle. So I do not expect to have a major change from what we had pace wise last year. I do think they will have a much better 2 min drill than we did last year.

I am assuming Gardner likes that he actually has a QB coach. Yes he is hard on him because he is actually in there coaching every little thing he does. As hoke said Nuss has great attention to detail.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I am just happy to hear they||
I am just happy to hear they are going to focus on getting to the line early and read the defense at least a little bit more than they did last year. It drove me nuts seeing the offense get set with around 10 seconds on the clock. Even if we don't want to run a high tempo at least we are putting more pressure on the def to show its hand earlier by getting to the line with 20 sec on play clock. Even if we don't snap until the last second I will be happy. I think the PSU game where we got a delay of game and back us out of field goal range when we could go up 10 was a prime example of this!

LMFAO. Asks Keith Jackson "do you remember what happened 2 years ago?" Keith response " ha ha ah yea I am still getting residuals on that."
Edit: he said he wishes he was getting residuals on that game. Lol
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||The last few years I have||
The last few years I have been going to the coach clinic in AA and each year I have been impressed with coach Wellman. Each year he gives a speech/talk about leadership, how important it is and what the coaches try to do. What I took away from the talk was that he said: we coach our player on technique, scheme and in the weight room ect. We also need to teach players how to become leaders and be effective leaders.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||What I really found||
What I really found interesting is the major jump in Win % from a year where the under classman get a lot of experiance playing and the next year when the team closes the gap of under and over. 2005-06 and 2010-2011. I really hope that is the case this year.

It makes me think that if we had only got the 2pt conversion. (Still fire Big AL) We would all be singing a different toon on this site!
|14 weeks 2 days ago||From what I have read I am||
From what I have read I am very happy for this kid. A dream come true. How great must he feel today. I do think that his height will be factor unless he keeps growing. I grew a few inches my senior year and my brother grew a few in college so if that is his major negative you never know.
Also who knows if he has to wait until his junior or senior year to start. He may not start at all or he may become extremely motivated and want to fulfill his dream to be a starter/ multiple year starter. If he wants it bad enough he can do it. If anything it sounds like he will be a good influence to recruiting, the locker room and by competing for the job.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I think it would be very||
I think it would be very helpful if we had a list of recruits we have offered and a projected commit date. Obviously the date would change or become more specific when it got closer but it would be neat to look at and keep updated. It seems to me most guys have an idea of when the want to commit " before my senior season" example. Some have a specific date like at the under armor game. Have the list ordered by the nearest commit date. Just a thought.
300 lbs in high school and offers from Oregon and we all know Arkansas coach knows how to find linemen!

We are not the only team that has fans freaking out about recruiting. Toledo Blade article about OSU only having 2 recruits in the class so far and urban telling the fans to relax. I think it is the off season and we are freaking out a bit to much about recruiting ect. OSU has had some great classes like us and are in the same boat or worse off. http://www.bcsn.tv/news_article/show/380975
|16 weeks 11 hours ago||Also I don't have enough||
Also I don't have enough points to start a topic but an article in the Toledo Blade was talking about fans getting on Urban about him only have 2 commits so far. I know there has been a lot of negativity on this board as of late with hoke and recruiting so I found this relevant. Maybe we should relax a bit because other teams are in the same boat in terms of recruiting.
