Tipping blitzes too early.
|12 hours 30 min ago||Noodle>>>>>>>>>>>Lemon||
This lemon business is stupider than anything Dave Brandon has ever done. It is stupider than Al Borges's 2011 Iowa game plan. It is stupider than running a pro-style offense in 2014 despite all of the blogs warning you against it. It is the stupidest thing ever.
|15 hours 57 min ago||Why not? No one thought||
Why not? No one thought Braylon Edwards would be as good as he was.
|16 hours 31 min ago||No. I like the site. I like||
No. I like the site. I like to read about Michigan football. I don't give a fuck about a lemon.
|18 hours 44 min ago||Well yeah. He was an||
Well yeah. He was an assistant coach then, with an boss he had to answer to. Now he is the boss, and when he wants an answer, he put the headset on.
|1 day 4 hours ago||They will win a few home||
They will win a few home games against better teams. Home field advantage is huge when no one on the opposition has ever been in your stadium. Watch, Rutgers will knock someone off at home, too.
But by the same token, they ought to struggle on the road. That helps us v. Maryland.
|1 day 5 hours ago||That must have changed when||
That must have changed when Coach Rod took over. Under Lloyd, if you took the field without them, he, Paul Schmidt, and Jon Falk would have had your ass.
And I'm pretty sure it was standard before Lloyd took over. I suppose Coach Rod thought they might hinder the OLs speed and made it optional. They were not comfortable, that's for sure.
|1 day 5 hours ago||This has been mandatory at||
This has been mandatory at Michigan for over 20 years. Today they have full knee braces, but in my day we had one bar that we taped to the outside of our legs to avoid getting rolled up on and tearing an MCL.
I was watching the 95 OSU game today and all of our OL had knee support. What a line, BTW, Janson and Runyan outside, Rod Payne at center!
|1 day 6 hours ago||Again, this is just pure||
Again, this is just pure abstract speculation, but if it is true that shield punting leads to more return team scores, than I understand the reluctance to go with it.
I'm not going to lie, I prefer the spread punt (which is what we run), but I also know that this is due to an irrational fear caused by Michigan's 2003 season with the shield/rugby punt experiment. I hate this fear and realize it is probably irrational, so I'd love to be convinced.
|1 day 7 hours ago||We ran primarily inside zone.||
We ran primarily inside zone. Nothing revolutionary. Nothing Alabama-specific. Many teams run it and Alabama ran it before Nuss. In fact, formation-wise, we were in the gun more than Alabama was.
Galloway is just a hack and the media always wants to frame a story in a neat way so that you are given one simple takeaway from every game. Its stupid.
|1 day 8 hours ago||My comment wasn't a defense||
My comment wasn't a defense of Hoke or spread punting. It's just that from what I know of Brady Hoke, he seems to be a guy who would rather die than lose a game on a blocked punt. Not that he is risk-averse in general, but I wouldn't be surprised if his mentality is that he'd rather give up a few yards per punt in the name of not having a calamitous, tragic loss via blocked punt.
Huge assumption obviously, that the spread punt is safer than the shield. I'm not sure it is.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Yeah, your team looked good||
Yeah, your team looked good on Saturday.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I understand your thinking.||
I understand your thinking. But by your logic, new traditions would never be possible. "It wasn't always this way until someone changed it." So? 21 used to not have a patch. 98 wasn't issued.

I don't get it. Do they give robes to the coach of the National Champion or something?
|1 day 11 hours ago||So the big run came right||
So the big run came right after this?
Wear the headset, Coach.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Any data on blocked punts? I||
Any data on blocked punts? I think Hoke and the staff are more concerned about the shield punting formation yielding more blocked punts. I think I remember seeing that there was either no correlation or that teams using the shield actually had fewer blocks.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I would venture to guess that||
I would venture to guess that everyone who considers Spielman to be unbiased is a Lions fan. I think he's a good commentator, but he is as biased as anyone else.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Mayock talks about a football||
Mayock talks about a football game as if it was a scouting combine. "Look at how big his hands are." "Look at that closing speed." "This kid can ______."
No thanks. I like a color commentator who talks about the game, not the physical tools of the kids playing the game. I know the guy is fast, tell me why that is important in the context of his responsibility on this play.
|1 day 14 hours ago||They obviously came out to||
They obviously came out to support Dave Brandon.
|1 day 14 hours ago||The reason for the perception||
The reason for the perception is that Michigan hasn't been good. OSU has been as good as ever. When Michigan and Ohio are both good, the perception will change. Especially with MSU becoming a steady program and Wisconsin continuing their success.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Yeah, I expect a positive UFR||
Yeah, I expect a positive UFR score from Braden. But I think it will be lower than the others (save Cole). I don't think he had a bad game, I'm just worried he wont hold up against better competition. I hope I'm wrong, because I think he has all the tools to be a really good ball player down the line.

Michigan, the under, go to bed.

Pull a Sammy Sosa.

Would + more if I could.
We all wanted some bubble screens, but Denard was never any good at them. They were often too low and almost never gave the receiver a perfect catch and run.

The kicking game is never a problem until it is.

But he wasn't a slot receiver at Michigan.

Michigan will never lose again.
|2 days 4 hours ago||I'll bet you $1 that Braden||
I'll bet you $1 that Braden has the worst UFR grade except for maybe Cole. He is permanently off balance. If anyone sits based off the results of this game, its Braden. I don't think anyone sits.
|2 days 4 hours ago||I think its because he||
I think its because he asserted that it wasn't close. I think most people do think it's close. Small sample size, Smith having had some better holes, etc.
There's also a tendency for people to weirdly and irrationally have a favorite based on either recruiting stars, hunches, or nothing at all. They'll be able to say they told us so later.
