|8 hours 53 min ago||I rarely do this...because it's blatant attention whoring.||
But you all know depth charts are near and dear to my heart. I was on ALL frickin day waiting on this release. And of course they put it out when I finally try to be productive with my day...
Now that this is out, a "few" thoughts of course...
QB: Jake Rudock is the starter, Harbaugh just has no incentive to say it publically.
RB: Not surprising, people have reported Smith for weeks now. The shocker to me is that there is no "OR"...that says a lot about Smith, IMO. Good for him. Always over looked by the two 5* guys.
FB: Poggi is playing H-Back, think Aaron Shea. I wonder if he's just here because there is no H-Back...similar to not having SLOT as a position.
TE: Not surprise here to me...I've heard conflicting reports on Bunting, but I personally wasn't buying it. The big thing here is Butt. He's the first receiving option by all accounts. I expect him to have a MONSTER year. Record breaking type year.
WR: No SLOT listed to no shocker...but what the F happened with Dukes, Jones, and those guys?? Jeez.
OL: This has been the line for the past 3-4 weeks. Love no "ORs" and these guys have cohesion as units. That said, everything points to Dawson being the first guy off the bench with Bars coming on strong as of late.
DL: Call me confused as well on the Henry/Wormley deal, but like I said...maybe Henry is Alan Branch 2.0?
LB: Love the depth and experience...we have four REALLY good LBs. I expect to see them all flying around with no dropoff.
CB: This makes sense...and if Stribling beat out Lyons, Clark and Watson...that may be saying something. However, I still wish like hell we had Countess. He and Mone make this defense SCARY good. Good to see Lewis listed after skipping the scrimmage.
FS: Wilson over Hill with no "OR"...some were calling Hill the 2nd best player on the defense (never bought that), but he's not chopped liver. Interesting that there's no OR and Wilson flat out won the starting job.
...okay, I'm done. What's for dinner tonight?
|11 hours 34 min ago||Monday.||
|13 hours 57 sec ago||Very true.||
Nonetheless, I love them both and hope they both retire at Michigan as the best in school history.
|13 hours 2 min ago||WD in 5...4...3...2...||
|15 hours 20 min ago||Nah||
I'm gonna be locked into it...fuck the game. I just want to see Harbaugh standing around pointing and talking behind some big ass laminated sheet of paper. #SoExcited
Edit: Just thought about it some more...they could easily get Marcus Ray and Jon Jansen who work for BTN. Put Woodson, Braylon (who's done BTN), and a QB in the room and you have your panel. Maybe add Coach Carr or Moeller.
I actually might tune in or at least record that while I'm watching the normal broadcast.
FOX, I just came up with an idea that is a billion times better than your KhakiCam and I'm just some guy who spends waay to much time posting to people I don't know on a message board. Step your game up.
|15 hours 30 min ago||Can't upvote this enough||
It's beyond a breath of fresh air...it's just, perfect.
|15 hours 31 min ago||Punting situation||
Sounds to me like Blake is your general "for length" punter and Kenny Allen is your "pin them inside the 10/coffin corner" punter.
|15 hours 36 min ago||Agreed.||
He should've come in during the final drive of the 2nd quarter and played the entire 2nd half.
Minnesota was AWFUL and our offense was even worse, yet we hung around.
With any improved play from our offense, we're 9-3 and pretty easily.
Our offense was so bad it made the defense, a very solid defense, look worse because they were always on the field and they were always in bad situations.
Put Rudock in, no mistakes, O'Neill's punting...I really like the positions we're putting the defense in.
Do that and Utah, MSU and OSU are the only "danger games." We should beat BYU/Maryland/PSU/Minnesota if the offense plays better.
This is why this Utah game is SOOOOOO pivotal. Win that and then you're looking at the 2 rivalry games, both as an underdog, both with Harbaugh's first year where they don't know our tendencies and we have BOTH at home.
I like our chances to split with the rivals.
I know it's homerism, but that's not THAT tough of a path to get to 11-1.
I don't think we'll be an elite 11-1 team, just like Hoke's first year. It'll be sort of a flukey 11-1. We could still get destroyed by an 11-1 Auburn or Alabama or TCU or Oregon or USC. But still, 11-1, we'll ALL take it and build on it for 2016.
|15 hours 43 min ago||Minnesota will score||
TCU is replacing their entire defense.
That said, it'll be more like 66-17.
|15 hours 46 min ago||I know it's debatable...||
But for the University of Michigan. I firmly believe we have the best two coaches in the country for their sport.
Meyer and OSU is a EXCELLENT fit and Coach K and Duke is obviously an EXCELLENT fit...but that's it. I'll take Harbaugh and Beilein, for Michigan, over any other coaches in their sport, PERIOD.
In my fantasy draft of picking coaches...and I'm Michigan and I have the #1 pick...I'm taking Harbaugh #1 for football and Beilein #1 for basketball.
|15 hours 48 min ago||Coach Beilein approves this rating bumps||
|16 hours 6 min ago||If he's a fringe player||
He's almost assuredly going to walk-on at a major D1, say...his DAD's major D1, right?
|16 hours 7 min ago||Agreed. It'll be completely overdone.||
And he most assuredly will get caught during a cursing fit or losing it...
I hate the media waaay too often these day. This is the dumbest thing in the world...let's put a camera on one man and just follow him around while he watches/coaches a football game.
Fox should be smacked for this and ESPN should be smacked twice for starting it with the Johnny Manziel cam.
I'm perfectly okay if you want to have alternate broadcasts...I think what ESPN does with the National Championship game is brilliant. They do the usual broadcast, then the home team radio, then visiting team radio, then a group of real head coaches breaking down the game in the studio...they also do the "stadium sounds" broadcast which is cool.
Following one player or coach is so fucking dumb I can't say it enough. Maybe have a bunch of old Michigan legends breaking down the game? Maybe do the stadium sounds thing? Maybe have a camera on the Michigan sideline that shows the viewer the perspective/angle of the head coach or player watching from the sideline?
All of those would be infinitely better than this KhakiCam bullshit.
|20 hours 25 min ago||Not worth a new thread||
But Urban Meyer is teaching a class this morning and just made some kid do pushups for wearing blue.
We should buy him Michigan gear.
|20 hours 30 min ago||Soon||
|20 hours 31 min ago||I hate these threads||
Yet I always post in them...it's the weirdest thing.
|1 day 8 hours ago||I'll be there...||
I'll also be in College Park for the Maryland game.
Probably the only two games I'll be able to make this year unless it's postseason play.
Next year I'll be at the Michigan/UCF game.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I don't think we're talking about practice uniforms||
At least I'm not...I'm talking about that being our away uniform. I think the person I was responding to was thinking the same.
I really don't care what we practice in.
And yes, just as a jersey, they look like Penn St. I don't know how many people other than WolverineDevotee walk around with the helmet and maize pants on to complete the uniform.
As an away uniform, it's my belief that they need maize outlines on the letters and numbers.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I'm losing my mind...||
Everything is sooooo boring. I just cannot wait.
Fox Sports 1 has a CFB Preview on right now that's pretty good.
No clue what I'm going to do for 4 days...
|1 day 12 hours ago||I did||
looks good, but I still think you should remove the blue collar and rings around the sleeves...and then just add maize around the name and numbers.
Mirror the home uniform except put maize around the blue.
What is shown above looks too much like PSU if you don't have the maize pants and the M helmet to go with it.
|1 day 12 hours ago||All analysts have been saying this||
Herby says..."I think Harbaough is really going to turn things around and Michigan is poised for a big year in year 1...I expect 8 wins for the Wolverines."
Everyone I hear is gassing Michigan up and then saying 7 or 8 wins. It's sad we've fallen that far.
I've even heard people talk about a big year in 2015 and finish with something like "I see the Wolverines bowl eligible this year."
At this point...just win. The media's gonna be the media until we get back to where we need to be. ELITE.
|1 day 12 hours ago||EXACTLY||
Rivers is a POS and it's clear as day what happened in the video. The title of the thread makes it sound like there was a huge pile up and Clark was just on the bottom with Rivers punching the shit out of him (which, I couldn't blame him for because Rivers is a complete ass).
Rivers grabs Clarks jersey and Clark just falls on him and then he rolls off and when he's laying on his back with the OL over him you can see him holding the "I'm innocent" hands in the air.
This is awful that it's even a story. Fuck Phillip Rivers.
|1 day 13 hours ago||They'll always go to the submarine||
Under Schembechler it was called "The Fort"...same thing.
Camp will forever be camp.
But 4 hour practices and the constant pressure and intensity is what I'm referring to. I don't ever think it'll be loose, music will be playing and media will be invited.
I just think it'll be a touch more "normal" and this year was Harbaugh really laying a foundation and expectation for the future.
All the coaches said this was something like they've never seen too, that's telling because many have worked with Harbaugh in the past.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I repeat the Peppers notion||
Peppers for President. Those interview highlights were a thing of beauty.
Have we ever had a RS Sophomore captain? Because I've found one.
|1 day 13 hours ago||This man is in an interview||
lol - I say no more.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Interesting||
That Harbaugh says he doesn't recall asking a team to work this hard in fall camp and have tihs level of focus.
Sounds like this was more of a year 1 thing to get things to the level he wanted it and he may ease off the gas just a touch during next year's fall camp.
I love that this team has been through a grinder like they'll never experience ever again. Lay that foundation and expectation.
|1 day 14 hours ago||1. Fuck yes!||
2. Thank you.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I know one thing||
They stopped yelling at him in front of the team and blaming losses on him during meeting and/or in end of practice huddles.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I don't think it's a slag a David||
But I agree with the rest...
David wasn't at the scrimmage - I assume he's hurt or something disciplinary - but I wasn't expecting him to start. I think that's WD's point. He was just confirming what was already speculated (that he's not going to start) during and immeidately after the scrimmage.
I give WD the benefit of the doubt on this, because to me, it just seems like he was trying to confirm something rather than share inside information.
Same if this thread was about Wheatley not playing or something - we kind of already know that, but nothing was confirmed.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Really||
You realize most people in the WORLD have a preference in a brand for almost everything in their lives, right? It's call brand loyalty. If there was no such thing, companies wouldn't make so much damn money from it.
It's not just Michigan fans and football jerseys.
Doesn't mean this is a good thread or the questions posed in the OP are valid - simplying responding to your post.
