Oh, I don’t know — the one where a head coach coach at Rutgers goes 27-24 (in four years) and is now an offensive line coach. 

In three seasons since Flood’s departure, Rutgers is 7-29. 

01/16/2019 - 8:41pm So this offseason, they have…

So this offseason, they have lost: 

Co-OC - Mike Locksley 

Co-OC/WR - Josh Gattis 

QB - Dan Enos

OL - Brent Key 

DC - Tosh L

Def. Analyst - Lou Spanos; and possibly 

Off. Analyst - Butch Jones 

That’s impressive. But they will bring in an impressive batch of replacements. Sark and Kyle Flood already being tossed out as OC and OL coaches. 

 

01/13/2019 - 9:21pm This team can do it all. Big…

This team can do it all. Big fan of how they play and they deserve this. 

01/08/2019 - 2:19pm I would prefer DJ Durkin as…

I would prefer DJ Durkin as Co-DC and LB coach, AND Brady Hoke as DL Coach. It makes so much sense it’s stupid. 

01/07/2019 - 11:18pm I’m so hungry for a fullback…

I’m so hungry for a fullback dive. These defenses are so fresh without the bodyblows. 

01/07/2019 - 9:07pm Biggest difference is…

Biggest difference is offensive line play. Even when these teams run on first down they get 7 yards. We haven’t had that luxury since Mike Hart. 

01/07/2019 - 3:58pm If LaVall Jordan wins 20+ a…

If LaVall Jordan wins 20+ a year at Butler, he will likely be a strong candidate. 

01/06/2019 - 1:12pm They said this last year…

They said this last year also. 

01/05/2019 - 8:06pm Would’ve never played. If he…

Would’ve never played. If he did, Harbaugh would have him going 12-20 for 145 yards. 

01/04/2019 - 11:29am “He can also run.” 

Okay,…

“He can also run.” 

Okay, cool. So he’s JT Barrett or Terrell Pryor. At no point has he shown an ability to throw the ball, much less throw the ball like Haskins.

Our basketball crowd SUCKED tonight. 

01/03/2019 - 10:18am Football should go back to…

Football should go back to maize pants on the road 

01/03/2019 - 9:57am Tru is a great scout team…

Tru is a great scout team back. He should not see the field over Evans, Charbonnet, or Turner. 

01/02/2019 - 2:17pm This one makes more sense…

This one makes more sense. Seems like Long is more pro ready. Should be guaranteed to go in first 3-4 rounds so guaranteed $$$ is on the way. 

01/02/2019 - 10:40am They can take Al, and we’ll…

They can take Al, and we’ll bring back DJ Durkin. Win win. 

01/02/2019 - 12:24am I don’t really get it. He…

I don’t really get it. He has the potential to be a solid TE. But he is still so raw. His run after catch ability is lacking right now. His blocking is still developing. 

These are all things he should stay and work on. 

01/01/2019 - 7:22pm Better players. Better…

Better players. Better scheme. That has been the difference. 

12/31/2018 - 7:15pm 3 things:

3 things: 

(1) didn’t know Redbox still was in existence; 

(2) definitely didn’t know they had a bowl game; 

(3) beautiful that MSU played and lost in the RedBox bowl, all while I (see 1 and 2 above). 

12/31/2018 - 4:15pm Basketball team needs to get…

Basketball team needs to get its edge back. The re-start of B1G play should be enough to get them going.  Let’s roll. 

12/31/2018 - 11:51am It is pretty obvious that…

It is pretty obvious that next season’s first play (and every play thereafter) should have: 

Shea, Evans/or Charbonnet, DPJ, Nico, Tarik, Gentry, Runyan, Bredesen, Ruiz, Onwenu, Steuber. 

And to hell with the packages where we get a first down and in comes 3 fresh receivers. When someone needs a blow, Bell and/Martin can come in at WR, and Eubanks can rotate with Gentry. McKeon should never see the field unless we are in goaline package. 

12/30/2018 - 3:27pm Clock management is on the…

Clock management is on the Head Coach, and it is something that Harbaugh has sucked at his entire career.  That was always his worst trait (and fan base gripe) at Stanford and SF. 

12/30/2018 - 2:57pm Miami should give Ken Dorsey…

Miami should give Ken Dorsey a call and rally the troops. He was an NFL QB coach for 5 seasons and now the OC at App State. 

12/30/2018 - 2:18pm Where was Metellus going?…

Where was Metellus going? The XFL relaunch? 

12/30/2018 - 12:41pm Probably not as big of a…

Probably not as big of a problem as LB will be if we continue to play Devin Gil. 

12/30/2018 - 8:09am I think several people have…

I think several people have touched on this, but Michigan’s personnel is solid but no where near Alabama’s at the RB level and OL level. 

Alabama’s RB’s: 

Damian Harris 5 star 

Najee Harris 5 star

Jacobs: 3 star 

Alabama OL (all top 80 players)

Jonah Williams 5 stars

Ross Piersbacher 4 stars

Lester Cotton 4 stars 

Alex Leatherwood 5 stars 

Jedrick Wills 4 stars 

That is a far cry from: Evans 3 star, Charbonnet 4 star, and Turner 3 star; Runyan (very lowly rated), Bredesen 4 star, Ruiz 4 star, Onwenu 4 star, and Steuber 3 star. 

12/29/2018 - 10:26pm Imagine what he could do…

Imagine what he could do with Shea/McCaffrey/Milton, Evans/Charbonnet/Turner, Tarik/Nico/DPJ, and a guy like Eubanks. 

12/29/2018 - 9:03pm Thankfully OU and Notre Dame…

Thankfully OU and Notre Dame will take some of the heat off Harbaugh’s lackluster day. 

12/29/2018 - 7:06pm I’m coming around to…

I’m coming around to Venables as Head Football Coach for the Michigan Wolverines. 

12/29/2018 - 6:45pm Only thing giving me…

Only thing giving me encouragement: 

DYK: Dabo Swinney was 36-18 in his first full four seasons as Clemson Head Coach. 

Jim Harbaugh is 38-14 in his first full four seasons as Michigan Head Coach.  It can be done.  But next year is imperative. 

12/29/2018 - 6:17pm Lol. If anyone thinks…

Lol. If anyone thinks Patterson is the problem—you just aren’t smart. The system is the problem. 

We need 1) to speed things up and run tempo, and 2) to not be so complex. This isn’t 1998 anymore, Jim. 

12/29/2018 - 6:12pm Should be: 

HC - Jim…

Should be: 

HC - Jim Harbaugh 

OC - Kendall Briles

DC - Don Brown

RB - Mike Hart 

WR -  Jedd Fisch 

TE/ST - Sherrone Moore

OL - Ed Warinner 

DL - Greg Mattison 

LB/STC - Chris Partridge 

DB - Mike Zordich 

Get rid of Jay Harbaugh, Pep, and Al Washington. Heads need to roll. 

12/29/2018 - 6:03pm Is anyone else surprised by…

Is anyone else surprised by the lack of Jordan Anthony PT? Dude was a 5 star and instead of getting him experience we were forced to watch Devin Gil and Jordan Glasgow play linebacker today. 

12/29/2018 - 5:48pm Defense was vastly overrated…

Defense was vastly overrated all season and stats padded by poor QB play in the Big Ten and weather-aided games where throwing the ball was near impossible. 

12/29/2018 - 4:21pm What talent? Offensively we…

What talent? Offensively we lose: Higdon and replace him with Charbonnet. We lose JBB and he sucked. 

Defendively we lose: Bush (tough to replace.) We also lose Gary who played like 7 total games all year; Winovich (tough to replace), Mone (did he even do anything this year?), and Kinnel (replaced by Dax). Teams floor next year is 10 wins. Ceiling is much more.

12/29/2018 - 4:09pm If Harbaugh leaves, the…

If Harbaugh leaves, the following list should be examined more thoroughly: 

Lane Kiffin: basically Harbaugh but with a modern offense. Would be able to recruit top 5 classes annually. Not a proven winner as head coach. 

Bronco Mendenhall: proven to be a winner at BYU and now building Virginia. Has a more modern like offense and defensively has been decent. Landed some surprising 4* talent at UVA. 

Kevin Wilson: Yeah, he was mean to players at IU. Who cares? He is an offensive genius and rebuilt IU. His offenses have been elite at Ohio State. 

Josh McDaniels: no clue if any interest in college, but he seems like a college guy. High energy, young, seems like a natural recruiter. 

For those traditionalists: Jack Del Rio is available and would be intriguing. Hire him and demand he bring in a spread coordinator on offense. 

 

 

12/28/2018 - 2:00pm Ohio State lost to this…

Ohio State lost to this Purdue team by four TD’s. Good God. 

12/28/2018 - 12:27pm Offense is good enough to…

Offense is good enough to beat anyone in 2019. Defense has talent — some unproven — schedule is tough once again. 

Thanks, B1G, for once again giving us the best of the Big Ten West. 

12/24/2018 - 2:20pm Michigan because Princeton…

Michigan because Princeton isn’t as fun, and that’s what college is all about.  You get the academic reputation at U-M AND big time sports.  What more can one ask? 

12/24/2018 - 8:48am If Jim Harbaugh didn’t want…

If Jim Harbaugh didn’t want the Indy job where he was a former player, and had his star college QB coming back with his type of personnel, then he’s not going to New York where he has no ties and to a team with very little talent. 

12/23/2018 - 6:46pm Or it shows that he is…

Or it shows that he is Taylor Lewan 2.0. Taylor Lewan was an All-American, 1st round pick, and now perennial Pro Bowler. 

I would accept that if the worst thing he ever does is push some poor kid in a high school basketball game. 

12/21/2018 - 1:41pm Tennessee has not been good…

Tennessee has not been good for a decade, and now they have a high school defensive coordinator from MTV’s last good show as their Head Coach. 

 

Doesnt make much sense for a guy of Solomon’s caliber but to each his own I suppose.

12/20/2018 - 2:54pm  

Actually think Amauri…

 

Actually think Amauri Pesek-Hickson might end up a hybrid FB or TE AND ILB.  If he is 6’2 or 6’3, 210 pounds already and can jump the way he can, think he has a real shot. 

Dude ran for 1000 yards this season after not playing football in 3 years. 

12/19/2018 - 2:00pm We will win the national…

We will win the national championship next season.

12/19/2018 - 9:43am Every time I think this…

Every time I think this program will never win another national championship they bring me back in with a huge recruiting class. Cannot undestimate the importance of winning primetime games AND having coaching stability for the first time in over a decade.

12/19/2018 - 9:18am Congratulations to Jordan…

Congratulations to Jordan Battle for not having to be linked to Ohio State for the rest of his life. Nicely done, JB.

12/19/2018 - 7:08am The staff has consistently…

The staff has consistently and expressly said that early [camp] offers are conditional on senior seasons and continuing a player’s upward trajectory. Every year one of these situations come up and the insiders tell Sam Webb what really happened and it’s obviously not in line with what the angry and upset kid says. 

If you do not continue to progress to the liking of Michigan coaches, why should Michigan give you a full scholarship? Tyrece will do fine at Cincinnati. He just wasn’t a fit at Michigan. 

12/19/2018 - 6:39am It is better for everyone…

It is better for everyone. Obviously, he is not ready to be on the Big Ten level if the only takers are Cincy, WMU, and Ball State. If he had come to Michigan, It would have likely ended in a transfer and four MGoBlog posts about the program derailing. 

Hopefully he finds a home at UC (as they have a nice thing going) and produces for them. 

12/18/2018 - 5:27pm It’s not actually changing…

It’s not actually changing the defense. He has consistently used 3-man fronts in the when he’s more confident in linebackers. 

The only bad thing is I’m not so sure the linebackers are all that great. Gil needs to take a major step forward to go along with Ross and McGrone. 

12/18/2018 - 3:12pm Pretty obvious that there…

Pretty obvious that there are going to be way more 3-man fronts.
