What’s the number one challenge you need to address?
“Right now we’re struggling to pass protect and run the ball..."
what's left - if you can't run or pass? I wish he would take more accountability and stop the arrogant response to his lousy playcalling.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Lost the team||
I think hoke and co have lost the offense if not the team. Came out too flat - this is only partially youth at oline issue. Corn had 3 backups and did okay. Sexy al Borges coaches scared.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Fail coaches||
This loss is on Borges and hoke 100%. What was that play calling to end the 4th? 2 delay of games in critical situations. WTF. That is all.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, you're right||
I should have checked the date closely. I did however find this:

My ABC listing doesn't have it either but found it on some random Chanel 639.

Anyone have a link to the herbie hit in the big house?
|1 year 7 weeks ago||HA!||
I just LOL'd at work reading that one...
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Sorry to see him go...||
Best of luck Carvin at whatevers next...
one question though - i'm not really seeing how it makes sense to leave now, mid-semester, mid-season? At least finish this semester of classes - you have 4 (maybe 5) games left this year - split before the bowl game and start at your new school?

What exactly is a tunnel screen?

Re: Big Will: "Hopefully he doesn't eat it all back in the next 8-10 days."
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Agreed!||
Awesome response to Tom - the part about "my coach Brady Hoke" was pretty awesome
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Congratulations Brian!||
Best wishes as you two start your new lives together...

|2 years 36 weeks ago||QB Situation...||
Is it me, or does it seem that Devin has supassed Denard? maybe i'm reading too much into the MGoBlue.com videos where Denard is mostly handing off and Devin throwing -- and then there's the epic Mike Martin Pick-6.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||maybe not...||
Read a twit exchange between Mallet and Hart last night talking about how great it is that Hoke is in - Mallet indicated he would have stayed with hoke fwiw...
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Lets not make the same mistake as last time...||
A divided Michigan is self-defeating - we all need to rally around this new coach for better or worse... He's our coach now, nothing we say/banter will change that - lets be patient and give him time to make it work...
(for the record - i still think we should have coach rod...)
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Flight headed back to aa||
Looks like it's on it way back to willow run... Wonder what went down?
|3 years 6 days ago||this is my vote..||
although would be cook to have Michigan and Ohio State next to each other at the bottom.
|3 years 6 days ago||like the first...||
but seems too football oriented for their grand vision. The modified 2 would be my pick if it didn't look exactly like the pac 10 logo.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||agreed...||
I think RR has proven he's one hell of an offensive coordinator.
Don't get me wrong - i'm not a RR hater - i actually think we should give him another year. I don't buy the improvement aspect - there are 3 phases - our special teams (which i believe he coaches) and D seem to be getting worse every year.
(and isn't Threet doing well at ASU this year?)
|3 years 2 weeks ago||can you please plot 2006, 2007?||
interested to see how much we regressed from the end of Carr - i do attribute a lot of the attrition to RR being not intelligent enough to use players he had to morph into his system -.. not saying mallet would have stayed, but wtf were you thinking running the threet/sheridan combo in the current system?
net-net - this improvement is significant if we accept mediocrity. when is the last time the program was ranked in the 30-58 range as we are now?
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Nebraska||
My gripe as always will be the children of the corn.
Not sure what your love affair is with this team, but they've consistently shown no fight and gusto. I would put them somewhere between 20-25 after losing to a bad Texas team, mediocre A&M team, barely beating a D2 school and a couple other games they should have won big.
It took a crotch grab to put some fire into that team. With their beloved t-magic on one foot, i don't see them beating Colorado. Either way, i don't see how you can put them Oklahoma, Arkansas or VTech
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Met Expectations... almost||
I feel the outcome of this game met expectations... less the first half. I think the defense did what they could in the first half playing for 20 minutes with no help from the offense. I was pumped up with the good first Q play and even forcing a punt.
Not sure what changed with the offense in the second half, wish they had that little spark in the first. Is it just me or does it feel like Denards throwing mechanics have regressed back to where they were at the end of last year? He had a couple good touch passes, but timing and general ball placement seem to be suffering a bit.
Defensively, i don't know anything schematic about football - i'll start by saying that, but the 3-3-5 just doesn't seem to get enough penetration - it's almost like saying we'll give you 5 yards on any run until you guys hit the second line. i don't know what scheme works better given our players, but hoping there's more adjustment next year rather than going with some hokey scheme that worked in big east WVU.
Optimistic for next year, glad we get the extra bonus practices for bowl prep, i think this team needs it. Also hope the injuries to Gallon, Smith, and Stonum are not too severe, they didn't look too fun on TV.
As always, Go BLUE - it's still Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
|3 years 4 weeks ago||haha!||
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Instant Classic||
Even though I have the game on DVR and have watched it again - i can't wait for the instant classic replay and getting to watch this game re-broadcast years to come. It's amazing what such a win can do to change all of our perspectives! I hope Denard is okay - i think he played a fantastic game even given those misfortunate picks
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Awesome!||
Can't wait to see him in a winged helmet!
I wonder how any coaching change speculation/rumors affects D.Hart's commitment?
|3 years 7 weeks ago||One loss Nebraska||
One loss Nebraska to a someone really bad Texas team (and near loss to North Dakota State) over one loss Michigan State that lost to a pretty good Iowa team seems a bit off to me?
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Buyout...||
... Not exactly sure what the buyout is, but i seriously doubt that DB would let the program slide another year (if it comes to that) just over the sake of the buyout. I'm sure at some point the donors (just like at Nebraska the year Callahan got fired) will stop donating and national reputation/recruiting are far more costly than whatever the buyout is.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Spur, Bandit, what?||
Apologize in advance, I know Brian has covered this before, i just can't seem to find it. I still don't understand what the differences are between the Spur vs Bandit role - anyone have a quick answer?

looks like he is smiling...
