I'm not sure what benefit a UFR would bring at this point, since the same thing happens every week. I can do a quick summary of the would-be UFR:
Defense: Good and getting better each week, but still inconsistent at times. Secondary rotations are puzzling. Got worn out in the 4th quarter due to offensive ineptitude.
Offense: a morass; a complete failure from the top-down; the source of all things depressing; evidence that Michigan will not compete for B1G titles, let alone be relevant nationally for years to come.

I've only been a Michigan fan since 2004, my freshman year. Suffice it to say 2011 is my only taste of victory, though the entire 2006 season was quite a time to be on campus. It's hard to describe the electricity in the air over the course of the season, and the surreal feeling that washed over campus as word of Bo's passing spread. 2006 was basically a slow, steady build into a crescendo during Ohio State week (they were still Ohio State back then). The entire season was really about the epic showdown everyone wanted to see at the end, and we got that. Too bad it didn't turn out for the best.

For some reason I've reached the point where this post has caused uncontrollable laughter by me.

He outright said that the longevity of the coaching staff was a major factor, so once I heard that I knew it wasn't going to be Michigan. True or not, the perception that Hoke is the long-term guy at Michigan is very much in question. At least relative to Saban and Bama.

I think my post has finally come full circle with this comment. mGrowOld, I'm clearly a couple of decades behind you, but we're on the same page emotionally when it comes to this team. Frankly, I can trace my mental state of being back to the moment Bellomy took the field in Lincoln; we are lost.
I won't ever be able to not watch Michigan, but I'm glad I've reached a spot where I can digest our football games without having outcomes affect me one way or another. The most upsetting thing about all of this is that I am not upset.

I don't understand why this season has numbed me. Every game feels more like a task that I must do. I emoted nothing positive nor negative while watching the MSU game.
We're objectively a better team than even RR's 2010 team, yet I've never felt this feeling of pervasive apathy and aloofness.

Wow you're just a total asshole, aren't you? Given the participation by so many people here, it seems this thread isn't so ridiculous after all.

I think you literally don't understand what literally means. Literally.
Also, the tone of mgoblog has been fairly consistent over the course of the season. Our offense is an abomination, and there is not rational excuse for what we're seeing. This line is worse than the 2008 line. Perhaps the comments have reached a "spartan level of atrociousness" because the offense has reached (and arguably surpassed) a spartan level of atrociousness.

I think it's pretty clear there is a significant difference between the two blogs. Seth gave a detailed and honest analysis to their questions, while their dude didn't play ball. Not that I'm surprised.
To hell with Notre Dame!
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I agree with this, though I||
I agree with this, though I hate to admit it. I am definitely a fan of the spread offense because it allows you to line up, see how the defense aligns, and then call a play based on that. With that said, you can execute that strategy without being abusive. We did the same thing under Rodriguez, but we weren't really an "up-temo" team compared to most spread offenses.
It's hard to write the rules to allow offenses to execute that strategy, but without being abusive by not allowing defenses to dictating to the officials the pace of the game. I think the NFL has it right in how they handle tempo.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Our interior offensive line||
Our interior offensive line clearly has some work to do. It seemed to me that we ran a lot of zone blocking early, and then started getting into pulling later. Had mixed results with both. We were pulling the tackles a lot too, with mixed results too.
Last year's line was consistently bad. I think this year's line will be good, but inconsistent. Notre Dame will be a great early test, though I'm not terribly optimistic.

I respectfully request that you never use "nite" again. It is the worst.

A lot of football recruits come from backgrounds where there wasn't much parenting, which is clearly the case with Hernandez. I'm obviously not justifying anything, but it's important to understand that a lot of guys playing FBS football come from difficult circumstances.

That game crushed my soul-dong so much. I still believe we'd have been in the Rose Bowl had DG been ready to play.
