Harbaugh said it himself the other day: A nickel corner is a starter nowadays.

That video was before the Holiday Bowl, not after. Harbaugh was our QB to start that season but broke his arm a few games in. That's why we wound up in the Holiday Bowl.
|1 week 5 days ago||This is a complete guess, but||
This is a complete guess, but it seems like a practice thing. The word on Bolden has long been that he's lights-out when he's familiar with what he's looking at.

And how many times must we point out that rankings don't matter if the recruits aren't still around?

Every year? They beat us by 13 at Crisler last season.

Agree. I think Bolden is always going to struggle in space.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||RS-ing Morris this year||
RS-ing Morris this year doesn't necessarily mean he's getting a fifth year. If he doesn't pan out next year, you can still give him the firm handshake and move on.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||RS is the logical conclusion.||
RS is the logical conclusion. Protecting against injury on handoffs is a bit much; Morris is likelier to get hurt in warmups. But if they actually need a second QB to play, it'll surely be Morris.

Utah is darn good? They were 5-4 in league play last year.

Daniel was a big deal in college, but that's a great point. Makes you wonder where all the college stars are.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||Well put. I've long wondered||
Well put. I've long wondered whether Hoke's focus on seniors seniors seniors was borne out of not being able to teach and players needing to learn instead through trial and error. It shouldn't be this way. We shouldn't be talking about fundamentals with redshirt juniors.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||This is why we all need to||
This is why we all need to let go of the notion that this is a talented team. Explosiveness is the most important trait in the game today, and this team was built as if it didn't matter.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||You kind of just hit on||
You kind of just hit on something: I'm not sure how bad the LB graduations are going to hurt considering their play. (Granted, things can always get worse.)
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Why would Harbaugh's FG||
Why would Harbaugh's FG argument have cost us a timeout? Just because he's wrong doesn't mean anything. Coaches erroneously argue for stuff all the time.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||The idea that the run||
The idea that the run blocking improved last year was always wishful thinking. What happened was the sked got easier. If you look at the seven common opponents in 2013 and 2014, we actually ran the ball worse.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Totally agree. QB and special||
Totally agree. QB and special teams wouldn't have been addressed, and there's no reason to believe morale would've improved. I think we would've won 2 or 3 games.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||AGREED. For Pete's sake, one||
AGREED. For Pete's sake, one injury shouldn't mean we're helpless against Minnesota.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||This is just a guess, but I||
This is just a guess, but I think the staff was so focused on not losing yards (after 2013) that the offense lost any semblance of aggressiveness. They talked quite a bit about how they were determined to cut out the negative plays.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I wouldn't sweat it. LB is||
I wouldn't sweat it. LB is increasingly a group that has 2 guys on the field. Michigan is desperate for offensive help. And this year hasn't played out yet; as you said, someone whom we don't expect to play at LB this year might.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed. He's had three games||
Agreed. He's had three games of 50+ yards, and two of them were Miami and IU.

Will. Never. Happen.

Who would that be, though?

Fascinating, fascinating stuff. Would upvote if I weren't on the iPhone.

Amazing and yet par for the course for the previous regime. There was pretty much an inverse relationship between prospect hype and performance.
