Jeff Brohm spends more time bitching than he does coaching, and his players are late hit aficionados. I'll be happy rooting against Purdue as long as he's there.

Scares me how much of a second half team we are. Hope we can get more consistent in the first otherwise I’m worried we’ll get in a hole that’s too deep to get out of in the second

So Michigan's offensive line has struggled with run blocking and recognizing complex blitzes from the second level.

 

So let's keep running into 10 man boxes on first and second down and setting up 3rd and long.

 

The offensive play calling in the first half today (and at too many times against Cincinnati and Air Force) did the defense's job for it in exploiting its own weaknesses. Typically, good coaching seeks to offset execution weaknesses with play-calling designed to compensate for the deficiencies and we're spending far too much time watching the opposite.

 

Last year it was widely circulated that Drevno called most plays with Fisch and Harbaugh splitting about the other third. What is it now with Hamilton instead of Fisch? Still Drevno? Has Harbaugh assumed most of the play-calling duties with Drevno in the box?

You did not say that, right? He's joking? And we lost 11 or something guys to the NFL. We knew this could be a reloading year. We knew that since before last year. Why are you just blindly throwing out "Harbaugh year 3, we should be an unstoppable force" With no context. We knew the last couple classes Hoke left us we're bare. We've known this.

His INT during the spring game was, as I remember, the result of him feeling pressure.  The coaches, which measns Harbaugh, I believe really wanted Speight to get back on the horse and rid himself of his injury demons.  Apparently it wasn't to be.  Good thing O'Korn really was better than his limited game time had shown.

While the game plans haven't been great to start games it's clear we ID problems at half and make excellent adjustments on offense and defense. Don Brown will basically download your playbook at halftime and then you're basically done scoring. I love it

Also, where has OKorn been all season? Hard to imagine what the coaches were seeing in practice to start Speight over the guy we saw in OKorn today. Weird
