The Sponsors

This show is presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan nobody would get our jokes. Our other sponsors are also key to all of this: HomeSure Lending, Peak Wealth Management, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Michigan Law Grad,Human Element, and Lantana Hummus


1. The Offense

starts at 1:00

Michigan takes passing practice, Shea locked on for 3rd down. Left a couple of posts to DPJ short but that Saquan Hampton made good plays. Higdon bad cuts: two in a row for the 4th down we didn’t get. Another bad bounce when a cut could have had 4. Tru was better at that. Long discussion on the receivers. Will DPJ get this FFFF star?

2. The Defense

starts at 27:18

Tried to tell you: Pacheko is the Chris Evans! Handing out negatives for the touchdown, a few other bad edge sets. WLB Sweepstakes was a solid win for Ross: thumpin hit but more impressive was taking down a TE in space in the early 4th. No Metellus no Solomon, Paye and Lavert Hill went out. Sad pass to Rescigno ruins the passing Rutger. Bush and Gary are still in for the 4th: Gary’s health vs half the people in the stands were Gary's friends and family.

3. Special Teams/Feelingsball

starts at 27:48

Coaches vs Kickoffs: Moody has discovered skying them to the 15 is the right spot to entice a bringout. Hudson somehow missed his block. Going for it on 4th was correct, woulda gone for it on 4th and 3 at the end of the half but it’s fine: Worst thing you can do is go into the half at 21-14. Roughing the Passer: Hit affected the arc of the ball. He hit him and momentum went to the ground. Poor Winovich. BAND RUTGER: Seth is mad on behalf of M fans who wanted tickets.

4. Around the Big Ten with Jamie Mac

Starts at 56:28

Iowa-Northwestern wasn’t exactly Bedlam, but Bowser gives them a running game on a night Thorson looked like a freshman again. Ferentz-Fant divorce. What the hell just happened game of the week: Minnesota dominates Purdue. IU survives a Maryland-has-an-offense-game (quarter scores read 6-9-8-9) to set up an Oaken Bucket for a bowl. MSU-OSU a derpfest until Dantonio throws the game. Lewerke is broken, Willekes dominated OSU’s OTs, OSU’s punter had a 4-yard punt and was the player of the game. FFFF’ing this game: three trouble spots on their OL? MSU receivers running open all game. Scary part: Ohio State can run the ball but if you move Haskins he doesn’t hit intermediate stuff and doesn’t want to be touched. Penn State dominated Wisconsin OL on passing downs. Nebraska-Illinois a battle of defenseless programs.

Damn, so close to 4-9-8-9.  I guess 4 is a near-impossibility for football.

"4-9-8-9" reads "shikuhakku" in Japanese, which means "hardship".  Which would've been the most appropriate thing ever for Indiana's defense.

RE Around the Big 10 and the OSU/MSU game, I don't want Tate Martell in our game.  He didn't do well in their Spring game, but in this game, he at least seemed to bring back the run option.  I think we can compete against Haskins' passing game in both our secondary and defensive line, which will affect his accuracy. Martell didn't throw in this game and maybe he isn't a great passer? (this season, he is 86% CMP, but that is against bad teams, in garbage time)...maybe I'm worrying too much?

Need to be “talked down”. Watching sports talk cable in NY and the drumrolls are starting for Harbaugh (Jim) to replace Jets Coach Bowles next season. Worse, also pushing for a package deal with Brown. I am a long time Jets fan but a BIG, as in sweat out every snap when the games are still in doubt fan. 

No way these guys would come here, correct. ? Harbaugh loves AA he says and he’s got young kids in school there. And Jack and Jackie next door.

Sorry if this is off topic “but”..

The photo of the Scarlet Knight up above is freaking cartoonish - like worse than mascot cartoonish; like sad pathetic cartoonish; like, look man, just give up you should be embarrassed cartoonish; like so cartoonish that instead of firing a cannon, on each rare touchdown, the knight on horseback should charge into the stadium and then instantly fall off but with one foot caught in the stirrup dragging around the field getting stripped naked to the wild laughter of spectators.  Should match the comedy of actually getting lucky enough to score.  It's been said to death but this team is an utter embarrassment to the conf.  Thanks for losing to them Brady.
