Outside of the offensive line, I'm not sure I've observed any meaningful improvement in this team compared to last. JMO
|4 days 22 hours ago||Yeah, there was some of that.||
Yeah, there was some of that. But the more I watch this team the more I get the feeling that we won't be able to truly utilize our skill at WR with Gardner at QB. He just seems so mentally shaken (understandably so given what he went through last year) that I don't see how we can ever really be successful as a pass first team.
If that's the case, I'm all for trying to ground and pound our way to a half a dozen victories, especially given that I think we have a defense that can hold most big ten teams to 20 points or fewer. It's the remaining games where we'll need to open up things for the potential of higher offensive output, albeit at the expense of the risk of dealing with Gardner and the turnovers that come with our passing game.
Don't get me wrong - I have a ton of respect for DG. But I just don't trust him to lead sustained drives at this point given his susceptibility to turnovers.

I agree, it doesn't seem that way but we really have no idea. Some of the ones today were completely out of nowheere

Never realized quite how good Le'veon Bell was during his college years. Obviously I knew he was good, but he's turned in to a great back for the Steelers. Possibly a top 5 NFL back right now

Speaking for myself, the frustration is with how standoff-ish, almost condescending that he is towards the fanbase. It feels like he's telling us, "I don't need your support and confidence. The players do."
Which of course is complete bullshit. Without the support of the fanbase his ass is out of a job.

I hear you, but he's been heralded throughout the country as maybe the best Big Ten QB this year.

Yea, not sure I buy all the Hackenberg hype. Granted, he's not getting much help from his running game or receivers, but he's not exactly dialed in on most of these throws

Yeah, the stuff being played at Michigan Stadium isn't nearly as bad as this. At least not yet. Hopefully DB isn't watching this game

Penn State is piping in straight up pop music during plays today. Just heard Ariana Grande and lil john. I feel uncomfortable watching on tv. Can't imagine what it's like actually being there.

You know how people always say things like, "I hope those guys play. I want to be them at 100% so there are no excuses."
Bullshit. I'll never root for someone to get injured, but damnit if something like this increases our chances of winning, I'm not going to say I'm upset about it

THe one big college difference is clock stoppages on first downs. That makes college comebacks significantly easier when time is running out
|1 week 6 days ago||Agree - without being able to||
Agree - without being able to punt with a QB from a regular offensive formation you risk (a) a return, (b) a block, or (c) a fair catch that takes little time off the clock

Zook probably would have taken one or two false starts and then booted into the endzone. My scenario ideally takes much more time off the clock - the yardage gained is inconsequential
|1 week 6 days ago||How many timeouts did UTS||
How many timeouts did UTSA have? I probably would pooch punt (ideally from a regular formation to avoid a return) and make sure the ball stayed inbounds. This way you burn as much time as possible which should really be the objective with that little time left

Maybe it's due to my incessant refreshing of the blog during the season, but I don't think I've missed any of the front page discussion due to this type of content. I understand that others might not be able to check the blog as frequently as I do, but for me this type of content adds to the experience as opposed to detracting from it

If there is one former UM player I want to see succeed in the NFL it's Denard. He sacrificed so much of his college potential after RR was fired to stay at Michigan, all because he cared about his teammates too much to leave them.
It's hard to find people that are as selfless as Denard is.
