---------------------------------

1. MSU After UFR: Pitch a Bitch

starts at 1:00

Ace lays out all the takes to pick out which ones are valuable and which are fire/stupid. One and four: dumb. Time for Peters? Might be. Fire Drevno? Right tackle was bad but the offensive line as a whole stepped forward. Long discussion on going to concerts.

2. Indiana Preview

starts at 32:15

They’ve benched their quarterback for a redshirt freshman—maybe he’ll throw the ball to unstoppable receiving god Simmie Cobbs. That’s not the end of Indiana’s receiving threats though they’re a bit banged up. That is the end of their offense. Their defense is Michigan-lite. They’re going to wreck us there.

3. Gimmicky Top Five: Favorite Play-by-Play Calls of All Time

starts at 46:00

Gus Johnson, Keith Jackson, Bill Raftery, Kenny Albert, Bob Ufer, and Rychialivyak Llissander Wolffsbaan Þormundur III (I think that’s his name) top our lists of favorite all-time announcer calls, a segment we came up with because we were all excited about…

4. People Doing Impressions of Bob Ufer

starts at 1:12:24

Steve “Dr. Sap” Sapardanis, Michigan historian and a man who knew more about Schembechler’s Michigan than Millie joins us to pay tribute the legendary Michigan broadcaster Bob Ufer. In the 40s and 50s, as America was still mired in its McCarthyism, Ufer was the color and enthusiasm in a black and white Pleasantville world. He conveyed to you through his broadcast style that it was ok to be who you are and not be someone else or someone that somebody else wanted you to be. At least that’s what Sap meant to say when Brian asked him for his thoughts and he kind of wistfully said “Yeah. Yeah.”

Also we have Ace try to perform some Ufer-isms, and Dennis from the OC calls in to show us what a real Ufer impressionist sounds like. Also Bo does a spot-on Ufer. Also Brian’s kid.

    [Eric Upchurch]

    Things discussed:

    • Sadness, despair, hate, turnovers. O’Korn took sacks when he didn’t have to, missed open guys in front of his face.
    • Offensive pass interference committed with impunity.
    • Offensive line problems aren’t going away: have to scheme around the bad protection. Craig suggests going to the Vikings RB receiver offense.
    • Time spent on inside zone all offseason was wasted. Stuff that worked was what worked in 2015.
    • What more can you want than DPJ running a fly just down the numbers?
    • The receivers: they’re missing Black, got a guy in Perry, Crawford is out there blocking but not receiving well. DPJ needs to get some of those targets. These guys need to be better coached.
    • Not getting Evans or DPJ the ball in space.
    • Michigan had no quarterback run game in this game: MSU ignored O’Korn on the zone read and he’s a good runner.
    • How much credit to Michigan State? Not bad for an offseason catastrophe, but they won by four when up five on turnovers and up 10 on luck stuff. They’re a 6-6 or 7-5 team, but they’re not a good team.
    • That’s a sad thing: Michigan has to be a lot better since most of the teams they’ll play the rest of the year are better than these Spartans.
    • More O’Korn: saw the things that lost him his job at Houston. He wasn’t running Michigan’s offense in 2015 when he was generating all the hype because he was on the scout team.
    • Indiana: offensive line is terrible, chuck and pray offense, their defense is going to wreck our offense.

    ---------------------------------

    1. The Offense

    starts at 1:00

    That’s the O’Korn we remember from Indiana. Right tackle is a massive hole. Think this team needs a receivers coach and needs to adjust better to what it cannot do. Drevno what exactly do you do here moment.

    2. The Defense

    starts at 27:47

    Dominant again: State’s one successful power play was surprising because we never see a normal play work against them. Hurst was mighty. State got just about everything on frippery and luck, which was in abundance. Michigan will be in every game as long as the defense plays like this.

    3. Special Teams and Feelingsball

    starts at 39:09

    Michigan got close to blocking a bunch of punts and got to one of them—first time this year that it looked like a solid special teams win. Maybe go for it on 4th and 2 but when your offense is butt and you’re in a 1950s game that’s fine. Don’t take the ball out of the endzone on kickoffs please.

    4. Around the Big Ten with Jamie Mac

    starts at 48:20

    All bad blowouts. Ferentz decides to coach this week. Barkley had –7 rushing yards in the 3rd quarter. Minnesota-Purdue was probably the most interesting. Is Purdue going to challenge Wisconsin for the West or is that just the Badgers’ birthright still?

    Purdue After UFR: The Offense

    starts at 1:00

    O’Korn yay and the rest is grumblin’. Backs are not getting yards themselves consistently; this one Higdon did but had a fumble. Right tackle “Never Forget” roster is run down. Receivers are what they are. Upside is in the tight end group. Good peripheral blocking from the fullbacks is wasted when the OL isn’t clicking.

    Purdue After UFR: The Defense

    starts at 18:22

    Man are they good. Purdue only got a few Jeff Brohm things and then Michigan downloaded it. Nice to see the throwback screens shut down, though that’s still somewhat dangerous. Devin Bush is amazing. Rashan Gary isn’t getting the stats but when you break down the film he’s sucking up doubles and creating for Winovich, Hurst, and the linebackers. Furbush: secret weapon.

    Gimmicky Top Five: Things You Don’t Want Jim Harbaugh to See on MGoBlog

    starts at 33:21

    So a few weeks ago former MGoBlog employee Tom Van Haaren did a shoot for ESPN with JT (foreground) where you can clearly make out Jon Falk showing Jack Harbaugh a user’s page on MGoBlog. So we asked Ace and Brian to name the five things they wouldn’t want Schembechler Hall reading. We’ll no commit those to writing or post the links because that would be cruel so instead here’s a picture:

    pasted_image_at_2017_09_21_03_09_pm_1024

    4. Marlin Jackson and Michigan State Preview

    starts at 47:48

    Marlin joins us mid-way through the segment after some technical difficulties that Seth was completely absolved of. Zero guesses which position he would want to play in Don Brown’s defense.

    Michigan State is a series of unfortunate things: they’re not good, but Lewerke can make some things happen, LJ Scott is dangerous, and the defense is back to playing their old aggressive quarters when circumstances/Iowa allow them to. The bad news: circumstances may allow them to.

      Things discussed:

      • State previewed: OL troubles. They look good in Ed’s pass D stats because opponents have missed all of their wide open deep guys.
      • Brian’s gameplan: Don’t run at all. State couldn’t press versus ND and that changed MSU’s ability to swamp the run game. Pick on their safeties all day.
      • State’s gonna run the jet, and run speed options in high-leverage situations. Positive effect from playing Air Force?
      • Lewerke is a good athlete who looks good 60% of the time and looks crazy the rest.
      • Bad week to be without Tarik Black. Pass pro and take deep shots on these guys. DPJ please.
      • James “Doug” Foug versus their guy should give Michigan the special teams edge despite the lack of Peppers.
      • Ed defends Brian’s totally sane suggestion that Michigan go with the Joe Tiller Tribute offense.
      • Offensive line cohesion is a big deal according to an older caller whose great-grandfather used to hang around Hangersturfer’s and listen to Craig talk about strategy when the forward pass was still just a gimmick.
      • Tight end-focused route combinations: get the ball in Zentry’s hands.
      • State gonna test the O’Neill crew’s willingness to flag OPI: they run a ton of pick routes, and their corners want to play up and grabby. Craig believes we’ll get a neutral game because we’ve been talking about these guys so long.
      • Nunez thoughts: reminds Craig of THJ. Very good spot-up shooter, rare among his generation he can shoot an actual jumper. Castleton is a skinny shot-blocker.

      ---------------------------------

      1. Hoops Preview: The Team

      starts at 1:00

      Unfair comparisons for Moe Wagner—this year they’ve got the guys to feature Moe’s stretch game. They might’ve picked the wrong backup center to rip the redshirt off: Teske should be a ready rim protector, Austin Davis (PN: “Ol’ Pterodactyl Hands”) should be unevidentially good. PF is Duncan Robinson’s limitations vs. Duncan Robinson’s lethality, plus Livers’ upside. Charles Matthews has five-star defensive athleticism but can Beilein teach him to shoot? SG: MAAR=RAHK=what he is. Ibi can jump, Poole is a shooter. PG: Goodbye impact rebounding. Simmons is the man to run the pick and roll, certainly knows how to create his own shot since he was most of Ohio’s offense. Zavier ain’t a bad defender, has to fix that shot this year. Eli Brooks was a Nova battle after an extremely productive HS career; could make things interesting.

      2. Hoops Preview: The Big Ten, and Feelingsball

      starts at 36:09

      Michigan State somehow got Bridges to stick around not getting paid to play basketball when going to the NBA he would be getting paid to play basketball, which he’s not getting paid to play basketball at Michigan State. No clear #2 in the league: Purdue lost Swanigan, Maryland lost Trimble is gone but Justin Jackson is back and Melo might have held them back. Wisconsin lost everybody. Northwestern is getting hype because they bring back their core. Will Ohio State be worse than Rutgers?

      Feelingsball: Michigan is gonna shruggie , hopefully a good enough defensive team to be a 5-8 seed. Don’t put baby Wagner in the corner. Can Charles Matthews shoot?

      C-ya Pitino!

      3. Ace’s Hockey Podcast

      starts at 49:33

      image

      [JD Scott]

      Special guest/friend of the blog Anthony Ciatti sits in to preview Mel’s first year, which we think will be like a Mason at MSU year plus a good powerplay. By lines:

      • Forwards:  Slaker-Norris-Lockwood: Lucky to have Slaker to pair with the talent. Dancs-Marody-Calderone: Caldy can snipe. Warren-Winborg-Rabbe: Warren has to drive it, Winborg has puck skills but not skating, Rabbe is the reverse. Sanchez-Becker-Roos, and Porikos-Nick Pastujov: Disappointing the Pastujovs aren’t higher. Mel’s gonna let the bottom nine shake out into something.
      • Blueline: Luke Martin-Hughes: That’s what a 5’9” NHL defenseman looks like. Luke’s a steady defensive blueliner and that’s what you want paired with Hughes. Roos-Cecconi: May see Piazza displace Roos. Cutler Martin-Boka: A really good third pairing. Strength of the team is they can go six deep with D.
      • Goalie: Lafontaine and Lavigne: Both good, Lafontaine has good mobility. Lavigne is steady.

      One game vs a fuggy bad team takes: more structured, deliberate, not trying to do as many long passes. A year behind Wisconsin, in a much tougher conference than Wisconsin had.

      4. Around the Big Ten with Jamie Mac

      starts at 1:14:08

      Illinois once again has young players and an atrocious team. Not much to say about Nebraska for beating them, or Ohio State for beating up on Rutgers. IU dug itself a 28-0 hole to Penn State, treaded water the rest of the game. Wisconsin has unlimited linebackers. Maryland making it work with Bortenschlager (I’m not spell-checking that), PJ Fleck doesn’t have great QBs either. Whoever’s checking Felton Davis this week probably should do a better job than Ojemudia’s little brother (or Brady Quinn’s heroic attempts to pronounce Ojemudia). Penn State’s defense worries us.

      [Patrick Barron]

      Things discussed:

      • Purdue was never going to win that game. Offense had to find its footing; Purdue never faced a defense like that.
      • Yay defense! Furbush and Gary are very good at generating havoc. Long & Hill killing it.
      • Flargeting: why wasn’t the one on Speight seen on replay? Brian gets talked out of his take.
      • O’Korn! Let’s not underestimate the transformation from Indiana to now. Was making confident pre-snap reads and executing them. First reads were there for him more than they’ve been for Speight. Improved pocket presence over the course of the game.
      • Sam: O’Korn was for real as of Rome.
      • Kudos to the Fox director—as long as Tim Brando isn’t on the call. Could see the receiver play really well in this game.
      • A lot of Perry and Schoenle outside. TE rotation settled with McKeon and Gentry on top. DPJ had a lot of routes and release moves to learn to function in this offense.
      • Alarming game for the OL. Not for Onwenu.RBs rough moments in pass blocking. Drevno or youth or both? First level rules still not being executed.
      • ND-MSU things: DL in South Bend isn’t creating havoc—Cole Chewins versus Michigan’s DL is a massive mismatch.
      • Ahead to Penn State: their defense is much better than we thought; Devin Bush is THE guy you want vs Saquon Barkley.
      • Ed’s numbers have UCF on top because numbers don’t know about Maryland’s QB situation.

      ---------------------------------

      1. The Offense

      starts at 1:00

      We welcome our new version of John O’Korn overlords. All hail the practice hype. Especially nice that we don’t have to worry what happened to Brandon Peters anymore. Throw the ball to Perry and the tight ends: easy. Chris Evans also took back his job. Offensive line…that’s a discussion.

      2. The Defense

      starts at 23:06

      We welcome back our Don Brown overlords. We’re not allowed to sacrifice unto linebacking god Devin Bush until we have properly performed the ritual reading of Purdue’s second half drives. Praise also unto the secondary, McCray for not getting edged in this game, and even the refs, if backhandedly.

      3. Special Teams and Game Theory

      starts at 37:27

      Brad Robbins has a prospectin’ name: Ol’ Quinn Nordin. Long speculation on the maximum number of players Michigan can reasonably have in the box score wearing number three. Also Brad Robbins has the punting job. Purdue’s punter erased DPJ. Crawford kickoff grumblin.

      4. Talking Big Ten with Jamie Mac

      starts at 48:20

      Just Ace and Jamie since sick Brian was done being a jackhammer. What happens in a game versus Vegas hopefully stays in Vegas. What happens at night in Kinnick fortunately stays there too. Maryland on its fourteenth starting quarterback in six years loses to Scott Frost, who’s going to have a better job than UCF next year. Speaking of, Nebraska is horrible. Michigan State nearly loses their quarterback in a valiant attempt to win with dignity. Blocky-catchy offense FTW!

      Air Force After UFR: The Offense

      starts at 1:00

      Yeah now we’re worried about Speight. The not seeing his best receiver wide open problem is a new one to tack on to can’t throw a fade and inaccuracy issues. It may be pressure (that right tackle spot isn’t going to fix itself overnight). Positive: he looked kind of like this last year. Running game execution is what it is. Receiver execution is youth. Fanbase is going through growing pains with this team.

      After UFR: The Defense

      starts at 21:53

      When can we give Winovich a shield? Offense designed to make you look foolish made Michigan’s defenders look like savants…except for that one play. Gary is probably equally good but for whatever reason Air Force chose to double him and live and die on whether they can beat Winovich. Good choice.

      Gimmicky Top Five: Things We’d Do With MGoBlog While Brian’s Away

      starts at 40:03

      Purdue Preview

      starts at 50:05

      Louisville game was eye-opening; Mizzou has given up on breathing. We’re still pumping the breaks here. Microcosm of the Big Ten: lots of good running backs and linebackers, very weak on receivers, linemen, and safeties, project to get a lot better. Sindelar is the guy Michigan fans think Speight is.

      • Purdue does stay run/pass balanced. They screen a ton.
      • Ed has Purdue up to 21% from 8%ish. Upset talk is coming from the trolls.
      • Red zone offense does not exist.
      • Worse games than Florida-Tennessee’s 4th quarter?
      • Air Force’s power option was effective, then it went away, then it came back and was effective—Michigan didn’t adjust to it.
      • AF had safeties at 7-8 yards all game: stuff you up until they give up a huge play.
      • Unlucky that Michigan couldn’t get touchdowns when they did.
      • Where was the max pro play-action deep ball?
      • How did Don Brown fly under the radar so long?
