i have survived but am become babe once more, with the wettest of brains. final four is... today?? i knew that! wow. carry on and go blue my dudes.

03/30/2018 - 1:47pm For anyone like me who was

For anyone like me who was confused by the title, the song OP put in the background of the video is called 'God's Gift' (by J cole).

Personally I wouldn't have chosen that title to refer to our final four run, but the video is cool nonetheless.

I appreciate the info. Go blue

03/04/2018 - 1:17pm thought about making a thread but will post here...

Zavier Simpson was praised by the commentators this weekend for his ability to 'trap' a defenders arm with his off hand, which he appears to do almost every time he drives. Late in the MSU game however he was called for an offensive foul for this. 

Is it an illegal move, similar to the 'hook' that players use typically in the post? Or is it more like the 'swatting away' of hands that ball handlers seem to be allowed to do? Or is there some gray area here like holding in football?

10/19/2017 - 11:21pm Weird stunts

I’m a layman but my guess is the looping stunts were more about containing the qb and potentially baiting him into scrambling. JH mentioned in the postgame that they were very concerned with his ability to run and he was happy they only allowed something like 14 yards. Perhaps they were hoping he’d try to escape the pocket, right into Gary or Hurst.

09/18/2017 - 8:22pm Harbaugh destroys all theses

Laughed out loud a few times reading this. I'm genuinely curious what type of question would have opened him up...

Also the first question about things he liked in the game last week - I believe the question was specifically about Speight. He said we won the game which is 'his' number one job, and then discussed the courageous throws into tight windows. The transcript makes it seem like the question was about the team.

seems like apples to oranges

03/20/2017 - 2:04pm Perhaps a detailed analysis

Perhaps a detailed analysis of strategies and adjustments is more in your wheelhouse. It would be great to see a breakdown with some game clips explaining how our two tourney opponents attacked us differently and how we were able to adjust. You could even call it "Not Just Some Shooters". Whoa I'm feeling that! Can't wait for the post! ;)

09/16/2016 - 12:41pm In the clip of CU's "clever"

In the clip of CU's "clever" drag screen, it appears that one of the receivers starts to block a defender while the ball is in the air. Is this legal?

Kemp? I know we have pretty good depth on the DL but he enrolled early, he's already big enough (?) and he comes from a football family. Anybody think he'll get snaps?

03/07/2016 - 7:46pm some unsolicited criticism

I expected to read a review yet I see mostly plot summary with a sprinkling of critical analysis at the end.  You say in the beginning of your piece that the book deserves all the acclaim it has received, yet you fail to support this statement in your review.  You also rate the book 8/10, yet your review doesn't offer an explanation as to why.  You do mention that it moves slowly at the beginning and you include the brief analysis at the end.  I expect more information of this nature and less explicit plot summary in a review.

I also read in the comments that you wrote this all on your phone because you "couldn't get to a computer."  I don't understand the rush you were in to post a review of an old book on a Michigan sports blog.  I know you meant to have proper formatting, but since you couldn't wait to get to a computer, you failed.  If the post isn't ready, why post it?  Again, I don't understand the rush.  Take pride in your work.

Finally, you included spoilers.  As I've yet to read the book (been meaning to for ages)... yeah.  Avoid doing that, or put a warning in your title.

 

peace and go blue

It's interesting to see that they aren't letting Reese enroll early, specifically citing 'big fish' that they are still after.  Are we assuming that some of these are LB recruits?

09/12/2015 - 4:54pm You might be right, but

You might be right, but everyone agrees that Shane has the physical abilities needed to be a great player, and we also agree that Harbaugh is a QB guru.  An extra year with Harbaugh would certainly help his development.

09/10/2015 - 5:25pm On the play where Rudock

On the play where Rudock scrambled after the token play fake it looked to me like there was some confusion.  I think Rudock expected a back to to be there to fake the handoff, and when there wasn't, he immediately abandoned the play and decided to get whatever yards he could on the ground.

09/06/2015 - 9:22pm Yes.  I only remember one

Yes.  I only remember one play where he did a nice spin move but the QB got the pass off right before he got there.  I was hoping he laid a good hit on him but the replay showed that he pulled up, probably trying to avoid a penalty.  I thought he could have finished the hit without getting a call but I could be wrong.  Even if he had gotten a call it might have been worth it...  Wilson was too comfortable and maybe he would have gotten a little antsy in the pocket after taking a good lick.    ohhhhh well.  

08/25/2015 - 2:30pm he's real, man

I do know this - the Kyle Flood who was speaking at Big Ten Media Day?  That'll be the same Kyle Flood if you run into him on campus, shaking down professors...

Do we know what the medical staff said to Hoke during the game with regard to a head injury or is that the information that they never released in detail?

08/17/2015 - 2:52pm thanks for posting

People have said that Jehu is the best speaker on the team but I would put Ty right up there with him.  Very nice interview here.  He comes across as genuine, responds appropriately to each question and his responses are well thought out and put together.  Happy to have him representing the university and looking forward to seeing him on the field.

Wow.  To hell with ND and all that but they have a classic uni like ours and this is an abomination.

Thanks for posting this!

 

Just got setup on the network, though the stream is kind of choppy and slow, not much different from when I stream games on firstrowsports.  Any idea why that is the case?

Also, it appears that btn allows international streaming (if you subscribe to cable) and I don't have any issues with their streams, so I'l be using that option for games on btn.  Otherwise I'll probably stick to firstrowsports or go to an american bar/chain if I've got money to blow.

07/09/2015 - 7:25pm miller was always the worst

miller was always the worst passer of the three (?) plus given that his arm is still not back to 100% I'd rather we play him. 

as a side note, i think it's worth noting that for a superstar level player, b miller has always come across as low key, humble, and dare i say classy.  i dont remember him doing anything (other than playing for osu and being really good) to make me dislike him.  his injuries have been unfortunate and i hope that he is able to overcome them, have success in the league and avoid any lifelong issues.  and of course lose to M in his last B1G game.

the article also mentions some shady behavior regarding cell phones.  if these allegations are true, it's hard to imagine him avoiding jail time, no?  at any rate, if they are true, he should be booted from the team.

however, the article also mentions that he is eager to clear his name and get back on the field.  either this kid was erroneously charged or he is a straight up sociopath.  here's to hoping the system works.

06/20/2015 - 10:06pm I'll grant you that our

I'll grant you that our transfers aren't as impressive as their guys, but you can't compare recruits to guys who have been in a system for years.  After a cursory check at rivals, it appears Cardale Jones was a 3 star recruit.   All of Harbaugh's guys were/are at least that highly rated as recruits.  

Also, quarterbacks don't compete against each other, so it's pointless comparing ours to theirs.  It's a team game and it starts with great coaching, which we now have.  

Feeling better now?

cheers

05/07/2015 - 4:46pm someone already mentioned

someone already mentioned Avant and I'd throw Adrian Arrington in there too.  I remember both guys made a lot of tough catches look easy and you don't hear them discussed often.

05/02/2015 - 9:00am I think Doyle will get there

I think Doyle will get there eventually but Max was the only 5 we had who could play strong and physical defense. Plus he showed he can score some and of course a 5th year guy provides leadership. All positives if he stays IMO

04/29/2015 - 11:01am caught him high but I wonder

He caught him high but I wonder if they wouldn't have suspended him if they had called a penalty during the game...  seems like they are making up for the non-call.

IMO this open ice hit isn't nearly as violent as many of the hits that have been made on guys going into the boards (by both teams).

04/06/2015 - 12:11pm lay person analysis

Bigger RB, good feet and vision, runs strong, tough to bring down, good burst through the hole but lacks breakaway speed.  Best comparison I can think of is Carlos Hyde.
