Yeah but Ohio States offense wasn't the reason that game was close. They scored 42 pts.

|1 year 20 weeks ago||How was it a terrible call to||
How was it a terrible call to go for it? They didn't get the ball back after that.. Would have been stupid to attempt a fg.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||If there is enough time in||
If there is enough time in their for him to lose control and gain control twice, it should probably be a catch
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Is there a video of this||
Is there a video of this anywhere? I've been looking but can't find it... Obviously the picture looks bad, but I would like to see a video before passing any judgement
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Matzah can adapt to any||
Matzah can adapt to any personnel.. If you look at his HS offenses they checked the ball all over the place... He will tweak his offense around the talent he has

Don Fellows for head coach!
|1 year 25 weeks ago||What makes you think that we||
What makes you think that we have a better chance of hiring a home run next year instead of this year? And if we did keep Hoke on, do we then not fire him next year if we don't have a big time coach lined up? At some point you have just get rid of the guy in charge and figure it out from there. We have reached that point already.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I think it is more a product||
I think it is more a product of Gardner not making good reads/decisions. 2 examples pop to mind. 1st the interception against MSU (I think) were Jake Butt was running wide open for a TD down the seam and DG through a horrible pick instead. And then last week were DG had Bo Dever I believe, wide open on the sideline and instead forced a deep ball over the middle that was intercepted.
I agree that Funchess has underperformed, but I think it is unfair to judge the rest of our WR/TE when we are getting as poor of QB play as we are.

Its not Drake Harris. He is healthy and has been participating on scout team in practice.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||You say Hoke NEVER had a||
You say Hoke NEVER had a winning record before he got to Michigan, and then you immediately post a winning record that he had. I am confused.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Idk if you have noticed. But||
Idk if you have noticed. But Devin is pretty damn good at picking up yards with his legs too.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Simulating the cadence is a||
Simulating the cadence is a penalty on the defense. Ive only ever seen it called though when the defense audibly says something. I assume the same rules would apply to clapping ot simulate the snap count. Either way its a bush league move by State.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Norfleets avg yards per||
Norfleets avg yards per return is 23.7. Which is good for 8th all time and only .9 yards less than Breaston's avg. He may not be the homerun threat Breaston was, but he is a quality return man as well.

Man, somebody really wanted to make sure they started the selection show open thread
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Talk on the west side of the||
Talk on the west side of the state is that they want to keep our recruits happy, and may be looking at hiring Don Fellows as OC (Drake Harris' high school coach.) I wouldn't be suprised if there is some truth to this. With Malzahn's success, and also the fact the Fellows was the OC at a juco in California before.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||How the hell do we know||
How the hell do we know leadership was poor for Michigan this season? We werent in the locker room, at practice, or on the field for games this year... Now I am not saying that we had good leadership, bc I don't know. But to just say we had poor leadership without any reason is stupid.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||I love how everyone is||
I love how everyone is ripping on him for getting in a fight when somebody was giving him shit. How quickly we forget about a month ago, when everyone in the media and NFL was calling Jonathon Martin a pussy for not standing up to Incognito and fighting him.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||So if a "spread" QB is all we||
So if a "spread" QB is all we need, why will it take us 5 years? It doesn't take that long to recruit a QB. Plus since this is about Chip Kelly it seems like Nick Foles is doing just fine in his offense.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Yup, because it took Ohio 5||
Yup, because it took Ohio 5 years to successfully go from a pro style to a spread offense

Pretty sure this comment isn't funny anymore

Case Keenum makes a whopping $450,000 a year

|2 years 27 weeks ago||Thats not true. The OL is||
Thats not true. The OL is sliding towards the field and will have that side picked up unless NW sends two players to the same gap. Kerridge doesn't even look at that side of the field. He immediately starts running toward the opposite side on the snap.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||42 sounds like a lot, but I||
42 sounds like a lot, but I dont doubt it. When I went through some of the UFR data I found that we had run over 60 different formations on the year. I personally like using a lot of different formations, but not to the extent that we do.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||I also hate how we leave||
I also hate how we leave Williams 1v1 with a DE in pass pro on that 3rd and 8. Matching up a poor blocking TE with a DE in an obvious passing situation is poor football.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Pass Pro||
I don't like how our RB's start on the opposite side of where they are going in pass pro. I think it makes it way more difficult for them and I don't see any advantage to it. Watch Kerridge on the sack that Brian linked. He has to come all the way across to check the OLB, once he realizes the OLB isn't coming he has to change direction and try and work back to the other blitzing LB.
I think it would be much easier if he started on the left. Then he could step straight up and check the OLB, and then work to the other LB without having to change direction. I also think it would be easier to see everything that is going on when you aren't sprinting across the formation.

Lets use the QBR metric that takes every aspect into account and see if we conclued DG has regressed. Keep in mind this also takes into account the strength of the opponent.
2012 QBR - 90.7
2013 QBR - 62.9
Looks like quite a regression to me.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Looks to me like DG had||
Looks to me like DG had nobody open on most of those plays (except Butt on #2) and outside of the hitches and outs we completed, nobody was open all day. It seemed like we really struggled to get people open against man to man coverage, especially in the red zone and on the roll outs.
