Sounds like the kind of guy who is going to go places and would be a great addition to the team.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Too Crazy and Progressive||
Putting Denard and Devin under center with limited o-lines and more complex passing schemes depedent upon accuracy and both qb and receiver reads is a recipe for success.
Or, just maybe, we should have used the above ideas with some tempo to keep our QB in as much of a zone as possible and allow him to pass from the gun on 95% of his passes so he can see the whole field immediately and react....never mind, reason my head hurt almost every Saturday. Square peg, round hole, rinse repeat at a mind-numbing rate.

Pure BS on an epic scale. Hire the best GD coach period. Watching Ohio State put up 31 on Wisconsin with their 3rd string QB with a spread, obviously the spread cannot work in the Big....fing shit if the hire is based upon matching a pro-style coach.
There are plenty of great athletes that did not have much fire, development, cohesion or direction from what I watched all season. Go get Hermann vs these two, Schiano is Dantonio in personality but a worse coach.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||Agents||
I would also bet there are several agents seeing big pay-days coming for their clients at the moment by ensuring "contact(s)" have been made with their clients by Michigan, Florida and Nebraska with "feelers" that just happen to make it out to the public for consumption without any substance.
I am sure guys like Freeze, Mullen, Patterson, etc in the midst of good years who are going to reap the benefits of nice pay raises and extensions as they were under consideration from multi-year bigger pay days from one of the 3 teams above along with a few NFL openings in some cases.
I think a lot of caveats need to apply to all of the rumors floating around as being just what they are. I am sure most of these teams have lists of potential candidates with a big pool of names for consideration and priorty status similar to any recruiting boards.

Please shoot both of my eyes out....not sure I can take one more Saturday of watching Michigan football.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||That would be too nice||
I remember a lot of comments and my own belief that adding both Maryland and Rutgers was bad for football in the Big 10....now it appears we should wish we could be coached as competently as both of them.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Lost Future||
Truly hope everyone involved is safe first and foremost.
Clark was actually playing himself into a spot in the draft the last few weeks. Given the current status with the NFL this may also be something that immediately puts the brakes on any possible future there as well. I would think not many teams are going to think twice about anyone with even an hint of domestic violence challenges in their background given all of the stories out with Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, etc. and using a draft selection on someone that brings that baggage along.
Still need to get all of the facts, but this sure does not sound good.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||50% Effort||
Funchess still looks hurt, but also looks like he is "hearing" steps on almost any throw over the middle....of course Gardner has put him into bad spots numerous times.
Gardner locks onto receivers, makes a lot of bad throws, does not read progressions and move the ball around which limits efforts. He likes Funch and looks for him over most other receivers immediately. He is most comfortable in the gun, which is why we want to run what seems like 60%+ of our passes or more in play action or drops from under center.
Butt gave up the INT last game through a lack of effort, he should never lose the ball in that situation if he was giving 100%, he still looks hurt as well.
Canteen has gotten open when he is looking for him, kid has legitimate speed and runs great routes from the little I have seen of him. Chesson plays with heart in everything he does, just think you need to put him in position to succeed.
|6 weeks 1 hour ago||Lack of substance||
This whole point of questioning and line of reasoning is completely asnine. If anything, it seems that Hoke has ensured that he does not pursue many, if any, even truly borderline kids when it comes to meeting academic requirements.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Bowl Practices||
If nothing else, having the chance to get in another 3 weeks of practice for Morris, Speight and hopefully Malzone if he stays the course and enrolls early are clearly worthy of playing for against Maryland.
I get the consideration that it might present a ray of light in retaining or not retaining Hoke, but I think that ship has sailed with his boss no longer around, and most certainly a new AD is not going to want to have that tied to them immediately upon arrival.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Well||
Considering Nuss is the QB coach too, get Morris or Speight up to speed to run the damn offense, I mean it is a crazy thought, but I have heard other teams can play other QBs and have some semblence of success.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Dumb and Dumber Too||
I think that might have been a pre-screening, without the comedy
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Smith||
Damn, he runs hard at times, but keeps trying to get cute on runs where he needs to follow his blocker, put his damn head down, and stop hesitating.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Offensive Offense||
Michigan SHOULD be up by at least 28 at this point with field position advantages and breaks in this game. Once again absolutely no fire in the offense. The defense played very good other than inexplicably going to a prevent defense against an offense that is even less explosive than Michigan on the last drive.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Taking time...||
Michigan needs to play to win the damn game. Just playing this way demonstrates no damn confidence whatsoever in your ability to play, dominate, win or execute and is another of a long list of reasons I want Hoke gone.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Not even smart enough to snap it quickly||
Another great example of no in game situational awareness, get up and snap the fing ball.....FFFFFFF
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Offensive Suckage||
How can Michigan continually make even Iowa look like it has an exotic and exciting offense....please dear god make the pain of watching how bad this offense is stop.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Consideration for Stars?||
I think this is also around the time there were rumblings of unhappiness with Smith, and possibly some less outward mentions about Green on their place on the depth chart. From what I can see with Drake is he hits the holes fast enough that if there is ANY seam, he is getting there faster than the potential to fill.
He still was jammed up by numbers like either of Green or Smith, but he definitely looks like he likes to get up the field similar to Hayes, but runs harder with a bit more size which is helping him break through initial contact. He also showed some ability to make defenders miss which is really lacking for Green and Smith and he most definitely has the most speed of the 4.
I am guessing he struggled the most in pass protection, but would give up a little substance there for actual threat in the running game especially with Gardner being obviously limited by injury.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Braden||
For someone so damn big he needs to be trucking Dlineman, but just does not seem to have it
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Damn||
It is nice to see a running back hitting a hole hard
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Flashbacks to Dileo||
For some reason I thought Dileo
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Some fire||
At least it was something for having some passion for a penalty
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Johnson||
He is hitting holes fast enough that it is overcoming how bad the line blocks
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Johnson||
Kid has some speed, and is running hard, keep giving him the rock
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Nice Burst||
He needs to get a few more carries, runs hard and has a burst
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Why||
Again, why punt past the 50? Oh, I forget, we save the best execution and attitude during the week in practice. Show some cajones and go for it.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Blocking||
Stilll waaaay too many rbs getting hit at/behind the line of scrimmage on a regular basis
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Northfleet - Love his attitude||
Love the kid's attitude, but he is the most explosive 20 yd kick returner in history
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Holy Fuck||
Does Devin know how to NOT fucking throw the ball right into another fucking colored jersey.
