Everything Ace listed are outcomes from switching everything on D.
- Rebound (9th in B1G)
- Steal the ball (11th)
- Block shots (12th)
- Defend two-pointers (12th)
- Get back in transition
- Identify assignments and execute switches/rotations on time
Wish we showed some toughness and fought through the occasional screen instead of handing the player off to our teammate. Eventually the other team will get a mismatch and if good enough, will have no problem exploiting it.
We switched last year, but not nearly as much as we are doing this year. We got after it at times on Defense last year and fought through screens. This year, not so much.

JB will approach this game like he has every game before this. There is a routine the team is in right now, he will not stray from it.
You never want to instill in your players that a game doesn't matter, especially in March. I expect a 10pt victory and it's business as usual out there.

He produced the three most horrific years in Michigan football history. That is why he was a bad fit.

That play never had a Michigan player within 25 feet of the basket... In a tie ball game, you attack the rim. When the other team has deployed a 6ft 6in center because their 7 footer is out, you attack the basket. You especially attack the basket when it's tied and you only need 1pt to win.
Everything worked out, so it's hard to complain about much. Luck was finally on our side.
If we lose that game in OT, that last play in regulation, JB's timeout with 2.9 seconds left and the play that won it would be criticized to no end.
But again we won, so props to JB.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I've been saying this for||
I've been saying this for years now as good as a coach JB is his last second plays, whether it be to end the half or the game, are atrocious.
Last year it was nothing but Trey Burke for a long contested three.
Last night it was Stauskas for a long contested three at the end of regulation. Then at the end of OT I'm not sure wtf that was.

Possibly but I do know Jordan Morgan ended up on Terrone Johnson at the end of the game because Michigan switches everything.

"I am still suspicious of his awareness on defense—his dude, Rapheal Davis, had five offensive rebounds"
Brian you do realize Michigan switches everything on defense right?
Just because someone plays the 4 doesn't mean they are automatically guarding the 4 on the other team at all times. This isn't a video game.

Have to stop the run before you worry about stopping the pass?
The move with Ryan tells me that Pipkins may not be back for awhile and they aren't sure if they have a viable replacement for him yet. Assuming guys will be getting free to our Linebackers on a consistent basis again, Ryan is the only one built to mix it up in the middle and help with run support.
That's the only guess I can come up with.
I think they try this in the spring, but scrap it half way through...

Ask him if his HGH dealer has any connection to Avon Barksdale.
Then hand him your business card and walk away. He'll understand.

The only way I could see anyone making a post like this is if they just started watching Michigan Football during the Sam McGuffie era.

Someone should have told Hoke he should have won 3 games in 2011 that way he could show progression no matter what.
Maybe he can give back the Sugar Bowl Trophy?

Soooo RR was brought in soley to run a fun offense? He wasn't brought in to actually win games? Well mission accomplished I guess.
Hey Rich you only won 15 games in 3 years but you beat up on UConn and Indiana. Wow What a ride!!!

It sure is, but that's what happens when you have single digit upperclassmen on the team.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||We were going in the right||
We were going in the right direction?
RR's offense was a complete failure against the top half of the B1G. RR's defense was a complete failure against any team that could field 11 players.
I guess if you start your tenure off at 3 wins, there's no place to go but up.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, okay. If he were||
Yeah, okay. If he were coach, we'd likely be waiting for our first bowl birth.
I blame Martin for begging Carr to come back one more year and then settling on hiring RR in the first place. Our program began it's rapid decline when Lloyd decided to come back for 2007.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The thought process inside||
The thought process inside the athletic department is this is a result of RR, not Hoke's doing. You can't skip 2 years of offensive line recruiting and expect everything to be business as usual.
We are still paying the price for RR's incompetence while he was here. Probably won't fully recover from that human death penalty until 2015.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||This is what happens when you||
This is what happens when you switch everything.
At this level, if you are switching everything, a good coach is going to run his offense until he gets the match up he wants, and then exploit it.
That is what's happening to us right now.

As much as we all hate Tom Izzo he is still one of the best coaches in CBB history. I'm really suppose to believe he is scared to diminish his head to head record with UM???? Come on you people can't be serious.
If Izzo jumps to the NBA I assure you him being "scared" of Michigan has nothing to do with it.
