“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

It's not his fault that the players can't execute, he can't see the plays, can't diagnose boo-boos, and he can't wear a damn head set to communicate crisply.
He is obviouly a stubborn person who is over-empowered for his capabilities. Time to move on. There is now overwhelming evidence that shows he is missing too many essential skills that are must-haves at a prominent program. He knows it: you can detect his mental meltdown happening right under the surface of his media responses. You don't groom people at his level. You expect the whole package.

Wrong on almost every point. Brandon has done more harm than any of those positives could overcome. Any qualified AD is expected to achieve those goals at a major program. He has trashed so many fundamentals of the brand and institution with flippant disregard and even contempt for the history. It's ludicrous to suggest otherwise. He is a smug elitist snob who actually believes his legalistic media rhetoric will soothe simpletons like me. The University will be much better served once a qualified AD is in place and the athletic program management is operating efficiently and with less focus on growing itself.

I have been quiet during the maelstrom. But I am ashamed of the way Hoke is representing our University. I cannot even convince myself that he is a good guy. The actions just don't back up the (poorly developed) words. Maybe when he is gone he can put on a damn headset, grow up, evolve, and get his act together in a FCS school.
Brandon has to be the first domino so we are stuck with this dementia they call leadership for at least a month.

I admire Jalen for everything he did for the university and for his work in the Detroit community. This makes it hard for me to evaluate what he says without it carrying some weight through my rose-colored glasses (pun intended). None of us know the inside scoop as well as the coaches and players that wore the maize and blue proudly (including CW). I suspect that Jalen has reached out more than once and received a cool response. I am sure that frustrates him. He is a passionate person who clearly cares deeply. I hope it all gets reconciled some day soon because he is good man and I would like him to feel welcome anywhere on campus at every level.

1. Offensive Line Blocking - it looks like the scheme is confusing the linemen. Why is the OL coach not simplifying the scheme to keep targets obvious for them?
2. Defensive Backs not Looking Back - this seems to be coached into them, too. I notice them in position to make plays on the deep routes, but not seeing the ball and thus getting hands up to block the pass over the shoulder/head.
One more minor Item - lack of pressure with 4-5 rushers from the D-line, too. Not sure why because they seem pretty stout, in general.

I am uncomfortable with the level of personal criticism directed at the players by name in all of these threads.
They wear the Michigan uniform and play their hearts out for the Michigan team, and for that they have my 100% support for everything that they do on that field, even if they struggle.
They are still very young inside the tackles. Those names getting criticism are going to be excellent linemen in a year or two and we will all be smiling about their performance then, so support them now.
A little change-up right now makes sense, Let's see what happens over the next few weeks,
OL, OC and S&C coaching critical assessment, on the other hand, is fair.

It is sad that this had to be stated and sad that what seems like a cool kid felt any stress from the nonsense.
I hope that nobody would say mean spirited things in front of any kid. So don't be that way on the blog.

1. O-line needs to block the right people. This is a mental thing and some technique.
If those three areas were executed correctly then we wouldn't need to analyze these plays because the offense would be inherently less predictable and defenses wouldn't park 8-9 on the line.

I dislike this because obviously he has talent, but in addition, his "commitment" undermined any other recruiting of blue chip OL during the time M was honoring his word. The M policy is a good one for that reason alone. I hope M capitalizes on the opportunity in spite of being hamstrung by the loss of time. Maybe there will be a late bloomer out there.

How can one not cheer for Shane Morris? Dude cracks me up. He is giving Gorgeous Al Borges a run for his money with that school ID/

Mattison is the man.
That is all.

So if I understand things correctly, when Craig James was attending SMU, allegedly, Crag James killed 5 hookers? Craig James? 5 hookers? Craig James killed? hookers? Allegedly? The Craig James killed 5 hookers at SMU?
That would mean that, if the allegations hold up, that in fact Craig James did kill 5 hookers while at SMU.
It's hard to believe that Craig James killed 5 hookers. Dead. The evidence must be significant for the allegations to continue to persevere for so long after Craig James would have killed 5 hookers,
At least there is comfort in knowing that when all the facts are presented, the truth about Craig James killing 5 hookers while he was at SMU with be known. Truth. Facts.

I was one of the 7. Freddy was awesome. Became a captain and started some games the freshman year of the Fab 5. I think he got noticed when we would match up against the football squads. Always a tough game.

The stars are fun to gaze at, but not important at all. The coaches know what they want and need to build the team. Mattison has coached more elite talent than any college team has ever assembled. If he, Gorgeous or GoldPooper recruit a high schooler, I think we can all trust that they know more about both fit and potential than the recruiting services. Recruited by RR, coached by Mattison...anyone remember Jake Ryan?
