|3 weeks 5 days ago||yep, just keep thinking he||
yep, just keep thinking he chose Alabama over Michigan because of the engineering program. I'm sure it doesn't have to do with the other big part of his life, football. Where Alabama has won 3/4 Nat Championships and we have lost 3/4 game. Real head scratcher there.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||i thought tech looked either||
i thought tech looked either stronger or in better shape then us. i would guess that has to do with the youth we have and so many players not having gone throught a college weight program.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||camera man is||
camera man is terrible....wish he/she would stay not zoomed in in the offensive zone
|7 weeks 5 days ago||we are most certainly better||
we are most certainly better with him. I'm just saying that because he went out in the 2nd half our OL didn't just get tons worse, even with 2 great tackles, one an all american, our O-line hasn't been productive.
or Taylor missing for a half is not an excuse we can use to explain OL problems
|7 weeks 5 days ago||this is exactly what we ARE||
this is exactly what we ARE saying. they learned that the startegy in OT1 was complete shit, didn't use it in later OT's, and guess what? we were in a better position to kick a fg or get a td if it had been needed. And we made that fg.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||if you think no one would||
if you think no one would have complained had that fg been made i don't know what to say to you. since i know i would have complained, and i am pretty sure Brian would have to. Before the drive even started I said to those around me "just please don't be cowards now, do not rely on a college kicker" And that is exactly what we did.
I didn't look both ways before crossing the street once and made it, i should probably use that strategy from now on.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||you would rather run 3 time||
you would rather run 3 time for 1 yards than take a chance at throwing (not taking into account huge space allowed by corners and the defense stacking 8-10 in the box) with some nonzero chance that is probably less than a couple percentage points of a pick 6. so if you were OC we would be punting on every first down as it is apperent if we did run 3 staright time we gain 1-4 yards. holy cow, I hope i never actually have to count on somebody this risk adverse
|7 weeks 5 days ago||just because somehting worked||
just because somehting worked once does not meen it is the correct strategy. sure on 4th down i wanted us to kick rather than go for it because it is the only option. i was at that sugar bowl and pissed that we ran 3 straight times in OT, especially after VT's kicker had just missed a 37ish yards in the OT.
and this doesn't even take into account how the penn st defense was playing in OT, giving free yards to the receivers.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||did i miss a bunch of games||
did i miss a bunch of games earlier this year when our Oline was good with Lewan in?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I don't agree that the OT||
I don't agree that the OT fg's, in particular the OT1 fg was a 90%. I don't want to rely on a 40fg by a college kicker ever, maybe with an experienced NFL kicker I can accept that. But playing for a 40 yard fg, especially with a kicker who had only attempted 1 fg the entire year of over 40 yards until that attempt and a carrer mark around 50% on fgs over 40, plus add that it is a pressure situation of a game winning fg in overtime on the road in a hostile envorinment in happy valley for a team looking for its first B1G title in a decade, that is past conservative and on to stupid. i don't care who calls this a chip shot, in college football it just is not.

and this doesn't put any extra blame on playcalling for it not working the previous 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26... times and continuing to call for it

just wondering (maybe it is still going up later today) has anyone seend the podcast from this week? i know they said they recorded it yesterday and it would go up today, i just haven't seen it anywhere as of yet
|9 weeks 14 hours ago||I hope not. I want him spend||
I hope not. I want him spend every available second of practice practicing for the incredibly important/ tough to play position that we have about 0 depth at.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I'm not going to get in||
I'm not going to get in whether this is a distraction to his team and whatnot. But before everyone calls for him to be fired, they should read up on how this affects the team. Coach Kill has epilepsy which is a condition most of us could use more education on. Not saying it is right or wrong, but before making baseless comments I think a lot of people could use some additional information.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||so i feel as field goal||
so i feel as field goal kicking has gotten worse in college football over the last few years. i have no evidence to back this up, just from watching a lot of game. is it possible that this is due to the uptick in soccer popularity in the US. or am i just crazy and this is more confirmation bias?

there is so much new useful information in this post
|12 weeks 19 hours ago||thank you for the reply, that||
thank you for the reply, that all makes sense. What I take is that Al is ready for this but the team is not able to execute the bread and butter as well as they should or anything else correctly. Feels like to me we are just looking for ways to say that our interior OL doesn't suck, which through 3 games we actually can say. Here's to hoping this gets fixed and soon. In your experience is this fixable, is it just them "getting" it and it is possible a light comes on later, is this something that is just going to take more time for any (or most) young OL to learn, something else, or not something you can tell without inside information?
|12 weeks 20 hours ago||i guess im confused on why if||
i guess im confused on why if we run outside zone (we have run this heavily in every game this season, correct?) Why would we not think the opposing team would scheme to stop outside zone? Unless i'm just really missing something the only word i can describe that as is stupid.
|12 weeks 22 hours ago||for everyone who takes this||
for everyone who takes this year away approach i am asking this honestly. what make you say this, just hope? because we lose the only 2 good players on our current OL. we keep the 3 inside that in reality have showed little to nothing and i'm not sure we can take any positives from our OL coaching can we? has any OL player become significantly better since Hoke came here. I'm asking because I don't know but I know Lewan and Schofield are both from the last regime.

though possible i'm not sure what knowing the playbook has to do with the ability to play man coverage

Dymonte Thomas can't cover walk on receivers? yikes, doesn't sound good

the game is in a storm delay....

this reply from Brian makes me think that Q is hurt not just out due to nickle formation tongiht.
Don't panic: Michigan's going to be in the nickel for most of the game anyway, so Pipkins should be able to pick up the slack.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||if he can't play here is to||
if he can't play here is to hoping Pipkins steps up big while he is in, but either way I assume we will be in nickle for most of the night without a Nose at all
|13 weeks 3 days ago||UM missing couple players today?||
Expecting Michigan to be down an offensive player today, affecting depth. This one's not a complete surprise.
Nothing definite, but I wouldn't be surprised if Quinton Washington didn't play much, if at all, tonight.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I was more wondering if Enos would run stuff state||
I was more wondering if Enos would run stuff state wanted him to, to see how Michigan with Gardner would pay it, giving state some film of this years Michigan O against at least a similar scheme to what state runs
|14 weeks 5 days ago||This is from earlier but I||
This is from earlier but I was just wondering if anyone caught the end of 5 good minutes with Brady Hoke on PTI today. At the end as they were cuttin gto commercial it sounded like Tony asked Jason Whitlock (who played at Ball St.) who would win a fight between himself, Jason and Coach Hoke. Whitlock said Brady would because he Jason, himself loves Brady too much to ever fight him. Just an interesting short story I thought.

This isn't a knock at all as I never even played football. However, I thought I had read somewhere that Nick Saban doesn't teach backpedaling at all. Is that just super rare? I'm pretty sure it was a knock Dee Milliner going into the draft though, so it still wouldn't counter your point. More just wondering what the take is on not backpedaling at all if that truly is how Saban teaches it.
