They seldom get the ball into the high post and when they do there's nobody underneath to pass it to. Just 4 guys still standing around the perimeter.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Once again||
We're forced to watch an entire game of an offense that has no idea how to defeat a basic zone. We just sit 4 players around the perimeter and one center underneath; pass the ball around until there's 8 seconds left on the shot clock, and then throw up a contested three. We had really great performance from Dawkins, Albrecht and Irvin, but nobody else really stepped up. I still don't get why they can't play Doyle and Donnal together to get some beef up inside. Uuugggghhh. Total kick in the nuts.

Mine is "FusionCell" and we just won our 8th war in a row today (97-93). We have several Michigan fans and a ton of people around the planet who don't even know what our helmets look like. Search for us and join on the loot train!

The first game will be a statement for this team and this staff. I can't wait to see them come screaming out of the starting blocks and start a new path towards the top of our conference!

It was so hard to watch wide open shots being drained from all over the arc. That was just bad strategy on defense in the second half. This team continues to fight and perform well with the two best players on the bench .

If you want to check mine out it's called FusionCell. We've won 7 wars in a row and kick ass on the reg. Go Blue!

I think teams will really fall in love with Mariota. I strongly feel that he's the 1st off the board. It's really cool that both of the highest rated QB's are actually throwing in the combine this year. Usually the highest rated guys either don't show up at all, or do all the drills minus the throwing.

Will you help me delete one of the two lists (duplicate) ? I can't get rid of it....derp.

With the expert coaching, solid offensive schemes and run fits, and real focus on player development, it's hard not to get really pumped about the future of Michigan football. This whole staff is full of all stars and their mantra is to outwork all competition. It doesn't hurt that our biggest need for a solid position is also what our head coach excels at mentoring.

The gold flakes actually cut your throat on the way down, giving the alcohol a quicker route to your bloodstream. Very similar to what the fiberglass in chewing tobacco does to the inside of your mouth. Gross.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I am also in the camp against||
using ONLY the star rating system. I think it's a great source of info for coaches and scouts to begin looking through to figure out who they want to evaluate further. I also think people put way too much stock in it at times. I know of highschool players with more stars that don't start on their own teams over guys who are unranked because of their size. It's a good general guess, but the coaches make their living sifting through the film and meeting these kids one on one to get a better picture.

Any thread I try to start. They all get shot down and deleted because I just give opinions without a ton of facts to back them up. I just try to start meaningful discussions about Michigan football. Meanwhile threads about what everyone's drinking tonight are way more on topic. Nevertheless, I

I also enjoy visiting your site and I like how objective your reports are. I live in Indiana - should I go check the kid at Avon out this year? Also, if you got to pick your two favorites regardless of who's coaching them who would they be?

It has been so lame recently. I will be ecstatic if they play a real game. I think Harbaugh is all about competition and he'll use this as an early barometer of which QB will shine as a leader. I say 50,000 people if the weather is bad and 65,000 if it's nice. I will also tailgate like it's a season game and my usual parking lot is always free for this one. Less than 2 months away!!

That all your problems stemmed from marijuana. That's just a little too much for me to believe, but if you need a scapegoat there it is. So you used to love roller coasters but now you can't because of smoking MJ? Hmmmm.... Ok.

I never realized that our staff was so small compared to those who were obviously so much more successfull. How has this never been a topic of discussion or questioning to our previous staff/coaches? I already expected the recruiting to be better this year, but I didn't realize how many more heads we'd have working on it. I think from A to Z, we will see improvement in every area on this team. This year is so excititng, and I'm pumped to go see the spring game in two months!

On our team, I would play 2-3 zone against us all day. We just stand around until there's 8 seconds left and throw up an ugly three. I can't imagine that's what they are being coached to do. It's not improving as the game progresses.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Wow he is impressive!||
That kid seems pretty damn bright, and I love to hear how passionate he is about working hard. I wouldn't be surprised if he starts at the 2nd tight end spot as good of a blocker

live show info! Man today is gonna be "really" productive at work...
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I will be there||
No matter the day or the hour. I'm gonna bring my two daughters (5&3yrs old) to their first game in the Big House. This year will be my 27th year in a row coming to A2 from Indy for games. Man, I can't wait!!

The reason I think this is a good discussion to have today is that no matter what happens tomorrow, we are still on the brink of the most exciting time in the last decade of Michigan football. I feel like people will be really disapointed if we don't end up with a class full of 4-5 star guys when that isn't what's really important right now. Don't get me wrong, recruiting is the life-blood of any program. Seeing the forrest through the trees, and grasping what's about to unfold for the Michigan Football program is what's so exciting about the present.

did whether a thread is "worthy" in your opinion become such a big deal? Isn't the whole point of blogging to create a discussion worth having? If you don't want to talk about this subject, than that's great. Spending your time bashing my post isn't really worth your time in my opinion. Why don't you tell me whether you agree or disagree and why?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Oh yeah||
And I forgot to mention that here comes a wave of negativity and harsh words from our mgocommunity. I know you will all downvote me and poke fun. This is as predictable as the sun rising. I still wanna post every once in a while, despite your reactions. There are some positive posters out there...somehwere. Go Blue!

But I just love Marshawn's running style. I can't wait to see Ty Isaac and some of our other guys really run downhill this year. Ty could be the beast of our backfield

read the Jim Light Football breakdown? That stuff is amazing! I am now really gonna watch for things like "hawk, Drive, Hank, Dragon..." The play-action with TE screaming across the middle brings me back to the 90's when that play was good for several big gains. If set up right, these things will really carve up some defenses. If you ask me, the RB's will gain the most from this coaching change. You can't just say "manball" and expect it to happen. We FINALLY have a competent OL coach, and it will pay off bigtime this year.

Take your eye off the Ball by Pat Kirwan. Great read, not too crazy to understand, and will really open up and change your understanding and how you watch the sport.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Couldn't agree more with Mad Hatter||
So many get caught up in the "star system" and forget that the guys working for Rivals/247/Espn etc... Are not coaches. I trust Jim to pick some badass guys that like to arrive with a bad attitude. You can drool over 5* guys that will most likely never live up to the hype. I will focus on the architect building a master plan one small piece at a time.

This class will shape up quickly. The NFL difference will attract big talent quickly. I can't wait to see what he does with the whole season of recruiting. Go Blue!!!
