with 3 to 4 different snapping techniques compounded with multiple QBs of different size and style, not to mention new schemes. There are going to be issues in the spring.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Uh...||
or the defense made sure they lost. /s
A slacker post. It's great don't get me wrong. The crack is mighty. Moar Harbaugh smells like victory.

The campus is fun. The students and fans are great. I'm glad to see them succeed if it is not at Michigan's expense. Unfortunately some of the success is a problem. It sure would be nice to get a Diamond Stone or JJ Watt and let the Badger wither.

Pretty interesting post by the OP.

there is something to this madness known as Michigan Football.

the shit's getting weird...
|2 weeks 2 days ago||This has merit but a brother has a stake as well...||
we don't know enough of the details to make this judgment. It's not always best to follow the desire of the parents. If the parents didn't want him to go regardless of money they wouldn't allow it. If it's a matter of money - this brother is doing someone a huge favor. It appears in this case it's the latter - albeit from the older brother's POV.

March Madness is now.

Hackett's take and execution here is much more interesting than with Hoke. It very well could be time if executed well.

For all the data - Michigan is no Kentucky. There are different paths here. Michigan has serviced a different demographic.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Sometimes stupid small buttons are stupid||
It would be better to have the up down buttons not so close together as well. Who really cares about points in the long run anyhow?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This is fair... I take your points... and look forward to 2015||
I appreciate all you've said and learned a ton from your commentary both here and on your site.
Borges was always about the install. We are not hearing that here from Drevno and that's refreshing. It will be interesting to contrast the 2011 season to this year. Borges came in and talked install when he had Denard. Drevno has no starter and is all about playing to the talent. I suppose that is to be expected when you consider that Borges could concentrate on the install without worrying about who would be the starter.
All that said... of course Borges did adapt his playbook for Denard and Devin. The bubble screen meme with Heiko had it's point as well. There are adaptations Borges just did not want to do and didn't. Denard's completion % fall off (and persistent INTs) and Devin's failure to launch make it hard to appreciate what Borges and Nussmeir were attempting. You have stepped into that breech...it's not a fun space to write.
Unlike Chris Brown who cherry picks the latest success and innovation your analysis has focused on the B1G. 2015 should be ripe for the picking.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I found it ...||
It is in the Jan 2014 book Concussions in Athletics : From Brain to Behavior - Steve Broglio and Kevin Guskiewicz wrote the chapter on the Management of Collegiate Sport-Related Concussions. Here is the excerpt I was thinking about...
This goes along with what you are saying about injury tolerance but the numbers are comparable HSFB to CFB. I've emailed Steve but he's pretty busy and my interest is not professional. In fact I've talked to several concussion and CTE experts with a wide variety of responses. Steve Broglio is very well respected. I'd be curious to know if I'm misinterpreting his discussion in this paper. If you see him, mention this to him. I created an email account tss.mgoblog(at)gmail.com. Send me a note if you think about it.
That said there is a huge discrepancy in CFB on reporting. Florida State reported double digit concussions while Oregon, Ohio State and Alabama all reported zero to one. OSUs one being Kosta Karageorge - which didn't become widely known until after his disappearance and death. Accounting for numbers is difficult.
Let me think about this and check on these numbers. They look like they are taken from the early 2000s. If I come up with something that adds value I'll diarize it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||This is in reference to a paper put out by Steven Broglio||
a professor of Kinesiology at Michigan. I will reference for you later tonight. The numbers are old but the incidence has not changed dramatically since.
Numbers here are sketchy which is the gist of this article in the first place.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Nope||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Space - what is up with you today?||
If you don't want to talk football - fine. I take exception to your tone and your logic and your analysis. If your answer is to not play - well that is fine.
Are we back in 5th grade? I'm not throwing shit on a wall to win people over. Is this all about MGo points for you? If so you win. I honestly don't give an ef about that.
I am at work. I do disagree with you . If you want to have a meltdown. Go for it.
If you want to talk football - I will check back - because unlike you - I enjoy talking about football with an open mind. Yours on this issue is not.
By ignoring the passing concepts to make some argument about Borges' untilization of Denard in the running game you are missing the boat. If you want to say Denard was utilized as well under Borges as under RR - you are wrong... in my opinion. Deal with it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Guilty and I agree with this.||
If this makes Space Coyote happy then peace be with him brother.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I'm going to come back to this later...||
I disagree with you fundamentally here with a few exceptions. But I'm under the gun at the moment. Later tonight.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||OK||
I get it.
What I was trying to say was Borges didn't adapt.
RR didn't need to adapt offensively - in my mind. His cupboard was truly bare. His offensive record speaks for itself. I think he would have been able to adapt had Mallett stuck it out.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||turd ... look at your data||
Am I missing something?
The story is not questionable and is consistent with my post. There was not an exodus post RR.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I didn't neg here but I think you have the story wrong on Devin||
Gardner didn't fit the system. The system wasn't sound. 27/27.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Agree somewhat but Borges runs vs. RR success fit square to hole||
Denard was on pace to be a monster with RR. Borges stopped his progress and exposed his weakness in passing. Sure Denard beat the running QB record - but in the end from the HB position. RR passed to augment Denard's strengths. Borges ran because it was the only thing working for him. Denard created Borges' success for the most part.
Devin is another story but still doesn't fit squarely to adaptiveness under Borges.

We always see it. Don't make me show pictures - it's too painful.
This take on practice is slightly different. There is an air of ass kicking competence. I will be shocked if Harbaugh ever refers to practice in a post game interview, but I feel from this post more confident that Michigan is getting its money's worth from the staff.
