That's definitely not going to happen whatever the outcome

Hate to say it but Schlissel most likely doesn't give a rats ass about what's going on... It's worth a shot though

Sparty is impressive. Their players play with fire and intensity. They want to win no matter who the opponent is and should be able to run the table given their schedule... Although they won't get into the playoff due to their loss at Autzen.

That is a rivalry game ya know. Not an official trophy game but it's been chippy the last 7 years between em. NU for some reason always has Penn State's number

Michigan won't win because we're a team that doesn't know how to win yet. Minny 10, good guys 6.

I don't think there is any technique coaching going on in any practice ever. How else do you explain the wide variety in decision making and improvisation going out there? I also don't think our OL is bad. I think the core issue is that Gardner can't throw a slant or a curl and so teams don't have a fear of blitzing the shit out of everything.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||If you want to make some easy||
If you want to make some easy money, bet against EVERY Big 10 team except Wisconsin that has a spread... Illionis will get stomped because they always do no matter the opponent, Mizzou will roll Indiana if you compare last week's performances, Pitt is actually not that bad this year -they killed BC- and Iowa is bad, Syracuse played pretty well this past weekend and Maryland makes way too many mistakes, I doubt MSU will score 45 points on EMU's defense, Nebraska is a paper tiger and Miami will exploit their weak run defense, and UMass played Vanderbilt close this last week, so I don't see Penn State dominating by 28 points.
I don't see us pulling out a win against the spread against Utah, either.. definitely not by a touchdown. We'll probably still outgain them by 200 yards but end up winning 24-23 or something like that.

You never bet money on your team. Rule #20 of gambling.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yet, we weren't. We outgained||
Yet, we weren't. We outgained ND and ran for 4 YPC against a good defense. We held them to 47 yards on the ground. For once we were playing a team that didn't make ANY mistakes.. And the 5+ mental mistakes were the difference. Not scheme, not talent.. But simply not being able to play perfect football against an opponent that was perfect
|2 weeks 4 days ago||No it's not the same thing.||
No it's not the same thing. Michigan has not been a good team since 2007. We were Denard for a couple years, but aside from that we have been awful at at least one thing every year. 2008 - awful offense 2009 - awful defense 2010 - awful defense 2011 - awful offense mitigated by denard 2012 - awful offense less mitigated by denard 2013 - awful offense.

Dude he's a center one on one against a massive fast behemoth Sheldon day.. At least have Gardner 3/4 seconds while doing it
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I felt exactly the same||
I felt exactly the same thing...
But ND is/was honestly better than anyone is giving them credit for.. The one outside zone play where Green was waiting for his blocks was one example. There was a hole available and he was waiting to get a bigger hole for a big play. Meanwhile, Jaylon Smith who is playing the play completely incorrectly by going away from play side manages to read the play and burst to the opposite side of the field and get Green before he even gets going.
Plays like those you just have to applaud.
It felt like we were a team who gets every 7 out of 10 plays right playing a team that gets 9.5 out of every 10 plays right. I mean.. they only had one penalty too.. and they were RPSing us with the one-on-one against Countess and screens when we called blitzes.
The first step to getting back to being Michigan is just acknowledging when the opponent is better and working to exceed their level.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I know it's hard to stomach||
I know it's hard to stomach and admit, but ND played perfect football and took advantage of every opportunity. Gholson was deadly accurate on every pass... Even on the run. They had one false start penalty that didn't even matter. They were properly equipped to defend all short type routes and Jaylon Smith is an insanely fast heat seeking missile. At least we got to experience an SEC style beating before the bowl game.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I hope you're not talking||
I hope you're not talking about the BC game because Tyler Murphy is just straight up not a QB. Not at any level. Not even high school.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I didn't watch the game. But||
I didn't watch the game. But take last week's UCLA/UVA game... UCLA wouldn't have won without some defensive touchdowns and turnovers.. Even against a terrible UVA. But guess what, nobody cares that a top 10 team almost shit the bed because they won in the end
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I agree. If the top 6 teams||
I agree. If the top 6 teams in the conference do their job (3 of them with big games tonight), who cares about Iowa or Northwestern... Who are basically equivalent to Arizona/Wazzou.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Who cares how they looked. If||
Who cares how they looked. If they won 21-3 that's all that matters. There's no requisite number of points before you start looking good. You could say Washington is the 6th best team in the Pac12... Is their game today any more impressive?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||And what is the ACC then?||
And what is the ACC then? They only have 2 somewhat good teams... FSU and Clemson... Everyone else is absolute garbage. Unless you're going to tell me that Pitt could hang with Wisconsin or Nebraska.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||It's hard to win, let alone||
It's hard to win, let alone play a close game when you have 7 turnovers.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||If you think the ACC is||
If you think the ACC is better than the Big 10 top to bottom then I have a bridge to sell you
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Teams like W. Kentucky and N.||
Teams like W. Kentucky and N. Illinois are damn good teams that give everyone problems. The fact that Illinois won means that they're not nearly as bad as they were last year. Also, saying that Penn State struggled against Akron by beating them 21-3 is a joke
|3 weeks 2 days ago||You people act like this||
You people act like this conference is the only one that loses to the MAC or FCS teams. Temple destroying Vanderbilt is basically equivalent to Purdue losing to Central Michigan. And ND St. beating Kansas St. last year is like Nebraska playing McNeese state close
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Who cares how the game goes||
Who cares how the game goes as long as you pull it out in the end. Do you think Bama scraping by last week or Florida State playing a bad OK St. team close did anything to change the perception of the ACC or SEC? No.

Corso shed a couple tears too... And Sparty fans booing after the segment is absolutely classless

|3 weeks 4 days ago||You forget that according to||
You forget that according to these same talking heads, games like South Carolina and Clemson or Georgia Clemson or Texas Oklahoma or UCLA USC are nationally relevant or something. I mean come on... When have any of those teams won a national championship in recent years? Only Texas and USC have any right to be called somewhat nationally relevant according to this guy.

UM 14 - ND 12
|3 weeks 6 days ago||SOS is biased and based on||
SOS is biased and based on preseason rankings which are a complete crapshoot (S. cars defense is good, Brett Hundley will win the heisman, FSU beats OK St. big). We won't know what the B1G's OOC SOS will be until probably week 5

We definitely need to raise awareness for MGoBlog / Michigan in general...
Some people think we have a back named "De'Veon Bell" ... and no that wasn't a typo in the article.
(sorry for the outside link)

Glasgow at RG.. he's not as mobile as Miller and thus is not as suited for center in a zone scheme. I dont't think messing with the LG/LT chemistry would be helpful either.
