to play football, not to play trumpet

I work with Antonio, and he is doing great by the way. He is a great guy, and has e-mailed me to talk Michigan football, even though he just met me as a fan. Antonio still follows the team real closely. He is using that UM degree and is doing well, just a phenomenal person.

really, why would you not force the other team into a 2 point shot and take away the 3 point line, that seems like a better strategy than taking away a player, especially at the college level.
I also disagree that it was a bad look, it was a good look. The shot was rushed, the form looked bad because he rushed the shot more than he should have, and the result was ugly, but the look at the basket was wide open.
I don't disagree with the strategy to foul at all though, I thought that was right on, but make Wisconsin take a 2 pointer and live with OT if you have to. Beilein has done a tremendous job with this team and is a great coach, but I disagree with the strategy at the end of the game. Call it a lucky shot all you want, but it was an open look to win the game.
|4 years 49 weeks ago||Do you honestly||
not think it was drawn up that way. The guys doing post game analysis did. They said it looked like Michigan's strategy was to make sure Taylor didn't beat us, and I think that strategy is horrible. You make sure a 3 pointer doesn't beat you, don't worry about Taylor if he wants to drive to the hoop and take a 2 point shot to tie. There is no doubt in my mind Stu was asked to help on Taylor and I think that is terrible strategy and poor coaching. You call it what you want. Whatever you want to call it, it cost us a chance at a tourney bid.

coaching, you make them drive and take a 2, you DO NOT GIVE UP A 3. How can they make such a poor decision? Here comes the NIT if we are lucky.

I live in Colorado Springs and Denver Mullen has an amazing football program. They are coached by Dave Logan, former Broncos player, and they are a private school that attracts the best Denver has to offer. Many of my friends, who have graduated from rival schools, don't appreciate his ability to "recruit," but they do produce most of the top talent in Colorado. If you look at Rivals list of top 20 or 25 players from Colorado, you will find 4 of the top 10 are from Mullen. I would love to see us build a pipeline at Mullen. Dave Logan had good things to say about Michigan IIRC when Watson chose Michigan.

Can someone tell me what happened between last night and this morning? All the buzz was Miles was almost a sure things to be the next coach within a day or 2, and now it seems as if we are all back to square 1, why?
FWIW, I wouldn't mind bringing in Keeler for an interview, that is the name of the Delaware coach right?
|5 years 9 weeks ago||This is exactly my thought||
why is this so hard to see. There is no way DB is going to base a coaching decision on 1 game, and if he is than we need to find a new AD as well. I am somewhere in the middle of keeping RR 1 more year and hiring JH, but DB's actions tell me he is either lining up JH as the new coach to take over so as to avoid a coaching search fiasco or he is feeling out RR to see if he is willing to give up control of the D and possibly fire the defensive staff. If we was sold on RR he would say so and not take the hit in recruiting, and I can not possibly believe the decision to keep RR might be based on 1 bowl game performance.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||This type of response||
is getting very tiresome. Why do so many on this site feel the need to be ultimate defenders of this coaching staff? They do make mistakes, and we are able to question them. Its not as if RichRod has had a winning record at Michigan yet, so he could make some improvements. If we aren't going to question coaching decisions and play calling, then why even have a blog about Michigan football. Lets just all agree the coaches don't make mistakes, they know all, and just enjoy the games.

is that you have fewer chances to make a mistake. I understand the D is on the field longer and exposed or wore down, but scoring is the priority here, and scoring quick is perfectly ok w/ me as long as we are scoring.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||That's the whole point||
is we have seen him play. You would be right if we hadn't seen him play and we were just being negative because of his walk-on status, but we have seen him.
Coaching can make a difference, no doubt about that, but coaching can not make a guy more athletic or faster. As was said earlier, Kovacs has to play perfect positioning and has less room for error because of his lack of athleticism. We are all fans and hoping for the best, but we are nervous because of what we have seen.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Frankly I'm surprised||
for exactly the opposite reason. It seems as though everyone is very understanding of Kovacs being a starter on this team and I just don't get it. How can we not find one guy who can outplay Kovacs, thats a little scary to me.
Nobody is on him just cause he is a walkon, but did you watch him play last year? He does not have the speed or athleticism to start on a Big 10 defense. Yet here he is, ready to start for Big Blue on Saturday. I hope I'm wrong and he has a ridiculously good game, but I'm just not seeing it.
|6 years 7 weeks ago||As someone who lives in CO||
and has a stepson attending CU, I say please do this. I would love to see Michigan live every other year. It would make my dad and I's year. I would also love to get revenge on them, that Hail Mary lives in family infamy.

I know this has most likely been talked about somewhere on this site, but I am confused about Witty? Why is he visiting? Wasn't he a commit from last year w/ DRob?
|6 years 14 weeks ago||I disagree on BC||
I think he very well could have become a quality DB. We have made a very quick judgement on his skills, he is only a Soph. DB is a tough position and I think he was being used incorrectly. When will we get a Def. Coordinator who is willing to play press coverage. I think he would have done well in press coverage and I still believe he would have turned it around at UM regardless. I think it is a decent loss to the team. Having said that, if he was given opportunities and continued to do whatever he wanted then the decision was the right one.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||D-Rob is not a future QB||
IMO, so I think we should get him on the field in other ways, either at RB or slot. He is dynamic and we could use his speed on the field, but I don't think there is any way he will be a better QB option than Tate, at anytime in his career. I know, he is our backup this year, and it would be better to save him until we have Gardner as a backup, but I agree w/ Magnus we are in trouble if Tate goes down no matter who the backup is. None of these guys will be able to come close to keeping the offense moving the way he is. I also agree w/ Magnus that its stupid to sit a guy because he might get hurt, play the best players and go for it.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Denard as a returner||
I like this idea a lot. I don't think he will ever be a suitable QB, I like the idea of Forcier and Sheridan. Move Denard to a different position and let him return some kicks this year.
Everyone is so obsessed w/ getting another Pat White, not me. I am hoping for a guy that can throw, maybe scramble a little and run if necessary, but someone that can throw first. I am looking forward to seeing what Tate can do this year.
