"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

The difference is our OL... Go back and watch some of gardners first starts after Denard got hurt and he looks like a different QB..
A solid amount of time to sit in the pocket and make some easy decisions..
It is appalling to see how much better OSU's O-Line has improved over ours.. By this time our line should be pretty solid and they are still terrible..
We have 2 juniors and several other lineman that have 1.5 years+ of play time and a few guys who have more than 2+ years of experience working with Funk.. but they aren't getting better.
Funk should have been a package firing with borges last year and he wasn't.. Hoke stuck by him and it will eventually be his undoing among a boatload of other problems

Not sure where the hell u have been for the past 4 years... We looked forward to change and we have officially regressed further than RR managed to do to us.

take away the 70+ they scored on Eastern and what are they averaging?
Under 30 against 2 pretty average defenses isn't inspiring..
|1 day 1 hour ago||Averaging Under 30 against||
Averaging Under 30 against teams that have any kind of a pulse is more like it.. Their 47 pts a game average is badly skewed by the 70+ they put up against a dogshit non conference team.
Scoring fewer than 30 against Nebraska and Oregon isn't going to impress the voters at the end of the year at all

actually a majority of the seniors were Carr's players and a lot of juniors were RR's players.. But same thing..
The coaching staff is probably the worst collection of coaches i have ever seen on a major college football program..
Watching how improved OSU's O-line has become as the year has gone on and ours continues to make zero strides with pass pro is completely pathetic..
Especially how they use JT Barret... Rolling him out constantly, instead we force gardner to stand in the pocket like a retard so he gets slaughtered..
Dumbest fucking coaches in college football and they happen to be at michigan

Someone explain to me why a dogshit Ohio State team is ranked 20th?

not entirely a nightmare as the O-line is the bigger issue with Shane being a QB.. if we have a good offensive line that can give him time and a good head coach like harbaugh we could see some huge changes in player development..
It is clear Hoke and his staff suck massive balls when JOSH FURMAN now plays for OK State and is a LB, not a DB.. and he has 5 Sacks and 1 INT and he is listed at 202 lbs..
This staff just cannot put guys in a position to be successful

I think it is disgusting at how we have 0 capable QB's outside of gardner..
I know our O-line is horrific, but Bellomy can't even come in and complete a basic pass? He's been in the program for what? 3 or 4 years already?
Shane looked like he's never even played football before against Minn..
I guess it is just another reason to show how poor the coaching really is
|1 week 23 hours ago||No he probably would of||
No he probably would of helped or allowed RR to have the D coordinator of his choice... According to a current players parents Martin forced RR to hire that idiot Gerg and gave him no other choice as to who he could hire. Not sure if this was public info in the past, but just another example of how the AD's of our program have had their hands in the coaches business in more ways than one

to add to this early in devin's career one of the trainers is good friends with our neighbor and mentioned that Gardner and WIll campbell were 2 of the laziest people on the team just by watching and observing them at practice and working with them daily.
If that is true it shows how much Gardner has changed over the years it is just too bad he has had to play behind some of the worst offensive lines in michigan history

Fans are against Gardner? Didn't desmond say last week on Gameday that no one at practice looks like they want to be a great player other than Peppers?
Doesn't sound like that is much support to me
|1 week 4 days ago||So did Bill Martin, as i||
So did Bill Martin, as i talked with a parent that lives in our neighborhood of a current player that was recruited under RR..
He was told by the coaches at the time of recruitment that Bill Martin forced RR to hire Greg Robinson because he "liked him" and RR messed up by not putting in his contract to get jeff casteel.
So he gave RR no choice on who could actually be the coordinator.. no big surprise from this program

Someone posted the other day that they have class with him and he said he had bone chips in his knee cap and that they were gonna try to get a medical redshirt for him possibly

Very interested to keep rooting for RR to keep it rolling this wk
|1 week 6 days ago||except at that age i wouldn't||
except at that age i wouldn't be stupid enough to say something like that when the team looks the way they look, and is playing the way they are playing period. Funchess especially, i know he has a little bit of that nagging injury, but he has taken plays off pretty frequently this year and hung Gardner out to dry specifically on the INT against Utah..
Where is the effort to you know, to actually dive for a football and catch it?
|1 week 6 days ago||Well obviously it isn't a for||
Well obviously it isn't a for sure thing yet so guess what the coaches are lying.. They are lying about Desmond too.. He will be getting a redshirt
|1 week 6 days ago||State doesn't need to pass||
State doesn't need to pass much? Their run game isn't very good if you have watched most of their games..
Most of their big plays and yardage have been from passing plays
|1 week 6 days ago||i dont give a shit about the||
i dont give a shit about the sacks per game.. It is more about how many times gardner is either hit or hurried every single game.. The pocket is so small if u sit and watch any of the games.
I went back and watched a couple years ago when we played Iowa at home when gardner took over as the QB... Watching the O-line play is night and day difference..
And magically so was gardners play because of it.. He looked comfortable and completed a lot of passes with ease..
You can also see how much faster Gardner was a few years ago compared to now when he takes off running

There probably was no doubt, but what i don't know if alcohol played a role in breaking the window or what the circumstance was..
Either way at least he was responsible and had the cops bring him to the hospital who knows what would have happened considering how bad we heard he was bleeding from his wrists
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||I feel the same way about the||
I feel the same way about the depth chart thing, but at this point are we really trying to understand Hoke anymore?
he's so disorganized on the field, im sure he's just being stupid and not removing him from the depth chart for a couple reasons.
I would think he is waiting til Desmonds wrist is healed, and for him to make a decision on if he will make the decision for himself if he wants to redshirt..
But what we heard is that Des does want to redshirt and be able to play the full season next year, so he will probably pursue his masters next year and play football

Since Hoke is gonna continue to be a dunce in the pressers ill just let the cat out of the bag..
I posted in the Derrick Green Injury thread, but Desmond Morgan is going to apply for the medical redshirt.
He cut all the tendons in his wrist after breaking into his locked apartment.. When he pulled his arm out he slit his wrists really really bad and had to have the police bring him to the hospital.
People won't believe me, but whatever.. Word travels fast in his hometown

He was wearing a michigan hat and mich warm ups.. and he looked to be hobbling

Yes it is true, he's from my hometown. And we know people close to their family.
As he was pulling his hand out he slit all the tendons in his wrist and apparently was bleeding excessively and he called the cops to bring him to the hospital.
Bright side is, he gets his redshirt year. Not sure if alcohol was involved, but it obviously happened after the App. State game

yea i saw a few of their other games on tv this year and the student section was completely empty...
Pretty brutal the fans can't even show up when you are the best team in the B1G..
Wonder what will happen when they drop off in the future again
