- He's two-gapping, in which case why is he firing into the gap and not the guard?
- He's one-gapping and Thomas(?) has the A gap

I put a new version up. There are still some weird transitions left, and steve still cut out for a few seconds at one point, but i think I fixed most of the issues.

In fairness to PSU, I waited to introduce the trouble spot thing until now in part because we would have had to dish them out all over the field for our last three opponents.

It's how you line up. If you're in the backfield you're eligible unless your number isn't. If you're one of the seven guys on the line, you have to be on either end to be eligible. It's not the refs going "this guy this guy this guy" for the same reason it's not the umpires saying "Batter #2 has to go after Batter #1. It's the core rules of the game. If the offense has more than 4 guys in the backfield (or as it's written in the NFL, 7 guys on the line of scrimmage) it'll be an illegal formation. That often gets called when a wide receiver isn't on the line like he's supposed to be, or when OTs line up over a yard back to help with pass pro (linemen will always push that--Spurrier's teams were famous for it).
Also you have to have 5 guys with legal numbers on the line. So you can't have an OT run out and change his shirt without putting someone else with a lineman number on the line. Remember when Mags played tight end in 2014 he wore 81 but there were still 5 other guys with eligible numbers for linemen.

A "Covered" TE or WR is a guy ON THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE who has another guy OUTSIDE of him on the line of scrimmage. Only the guy furthest out on the line of scrimmage to each side is an eligible receiver. Ignore anyone not on the line of scrimmage (even if they're just a yard back)
If you're covered all the rules for offensive linemen apply to you, e.g. you're not an eligible receiver.

That's called an "Unbalanced Line" and offenses do that too. However you lose the surprise. Defenses can fall asleep sometimes and forget to look to see if the man they're lined up over is covered. But it's harder to miss a tight end lined up next to a guard.

No he's treated like lineman.
There are several ways to deal with it. What it seems Michigan is doing (but not doing) is setting up in a normal Cov2, which is fine since you're still set up against the run. But when Clark reads it's a pass I think he needs to slam down into the high hole because there's no threat on his side and his buddies could use some help.

Finebaum is probably going to get thrown in the Valenti/Sharp pile. These are trolls who will get you banned if you share their trollings.

caved already boliviated user. His comment wasn't any worse than the usual message board kind of dumb, but considering he was already in Bolivia, plus the username, Urban Meyer avatar, and Maurice Clarrett thing in his signature, and the fact that his dumb comment was regarding Urban, I decided it was time to ban him since not doing so just reflects poorly on us and Michigan fans in general.

What does it matter if State is on the 35 or the 20 in that situation?

I finally joined (I know, since they're sponsors here I should have done so long before). I'm meeting sometime soon with the Detroit AAUM club to talk about doing more volunteer events together. Their access to tickets is almost worth the $70/year anyway if you're not a season ticket holder or you go to away games. And their big homecoming tailgate is getting more and more awesome.

Why is UCLA such a common (and frustratingly successful) competitor for Michigan's targets these days? Does the NCAA's Tresseling of their OL coach move the needle with any prospects?

That's pretty typical. Think back on all those times Wormley or Taco just blasted a fool into the backfield. The outside blitz from McCray shouldn't be the hammer if you're stunting the frontside. He's the anvil here.

I've already made my thoughts known on the John O'Niell crew. They are the worst in college football. Complaining further about them won't change that.
|1 week 6 days ago||Since Brian still has to||
Since Brian still has to cover this in UFR I wasn't going to repeat his work. Dymonte reacting faster could hold this to a 4th and short attempt, but McCray losing contain cost Michigan a sack/punt from the goal line.

The RB creates an 11th wild card gap. Usually a linebacker or a safety will have RB responsibility.

On a typical Cov 1 play I'd agree, because you have a linebacker in the hole to take an inside gap. On this play the Mike got taken out of the play by the running back going way out to the slot and running an out route. Given the blitz, that should trigger a check for McCray that he now has the B gap (and has to control the C gap until help arrives.
If Gary had the frontside B gap either:
This play was designed for Gary to affect the center, who's got Glasgow lined up in a zero over him, and should be blocking Winovich. So once the LB help is pulled into the slot McCray has to take a B gap.

The weirdness is it was fine on the podcast as it got recorded. I needed to find a different output from the board to broadcast from. The AUX sounded fine at home, and was a bad idea when we got there and there were multiple channels in use.

I have the live feed going out over the Aux output--I didn't know until today that the Aux output doesn't mute when I hit mute.

is it balanced now? The board appears to be putting it out in mono so I tried to correct that on the computer side. At least the recording is stereo.
