Yes, apparently so... I wrongfully assumed that the spartan tailgate prediction yesterday was for MSU. Got too eager to trash MSU, mea culpa.

Umbig11 said yesterday that this was due to some red flags and for being suspended part of his hs season which is unfortunate...

Bet you can’t guess where his crystal balls are going now...

I agree that Peters is probably the backup but if Milton was the actual #2 they wouldn't risk wasting his redshirt so he could hand the ball off in a blowout.

I often forget that Jim Mcelwain is on the staff, and I’m fine with that.

Gonna take some work to finish your novel then...

I feel terrible for Felton Davis, but MSU got what was coming to them for not putting a tarp on the field during the delay. Obviously it's impossible to know whether it would have made a difference but MSU made that field unnecessarily dangerous for the players when they didn't put a tarp down.

Thank you for indulging my childish self

I just ask because I feel dirty the more I have to click through that site.

Link?

Somebody said this in a thread yesterday and got blasted for it I’m pretty sure lol.

That’s definitely not good news for Gary. Luckily we have a bye next week but if he isn’t back by Penn St. I think we may have seen the last of him.

According to Shea this play is courtesy of Ed Warinner.

10/07/2018 - 11:30am What a difference a week…

What a difference a week makes, last week I posted a thread on this and everyone was like “yeah!”, now you get negged.

Honestly though the short passing game was far better this week, including a great  slant by Perry to get a conversion on third and ten.

10/06/2018 - 5:03pm We have midterms this week…

We have midterms this week. Lots of people are very busy 

10/05/2018 - 2:50pm That’s plain wrong. We didn…

That’s plain wrong. We didn’t have a majority but we had them.

10/05/2018 - 12:48pm More than Ike and Benhart…

More than Ike and Benhart do. And what's so concerning about Keegan to me is the Georgia ball from Wiltfong. 

10/05/2018 - 12:45pm You are. We got two tackles…

You are. We got two tackles last year so while only getting 1 isn't ideal its not the end of the world. I'd worry more about Wr (even with Bell's emergence) or maybe even linebacker. Or better yet, not at all.

10/05/2018 - 12:39pm "I also remembered far too…

"I also remembered far too late who Texas's (very good) left tackle is."

Who is he talking ab... ohhhh...

*audible sigh*

10/05/2018 - 11:41am I know you’re getting negged…

I know you’re getting negged but I think you’re right.

10/02/2018 - 10:38am I love the optimism but…

I love the optimism but there is no way in hell that there is only 1/2 imaginary confidence point between IU and Wisconsin.

10/02/2018 - 10:35am Way too extreme in my…

Way too extreme in my opinion. MSU and OSU should not be that low and PSU and Wisconsin should be higher, Maryland too probably. 

Maryland: 7.5

Wisconsin: 5 (Maybe give us a slight edge since we're at home)

MSU: 5

PSU: 4 (I'm so glad this one is at home)

Rutgers: C'mon

Indiana: 8

Ohio St: 2.5

10/01/2018 - 1:41am It’s a fucking slant…

It’s a fucking slant. Literally one of the thee routes all high school players know how to run

10/01/2018 - 1:40am That fact that you’re saying…

That fact that you’re saying my post about throwing a slant to Grant Perry would be “breaking tendency” and “opening up the playbook” is just proving that it’s a problem.

10/01/2018 - 1:35am I’m not sure what you’re…

I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. Maybe you're not responding to me.

Of course things don’t happen in a vacuum but we have multiple data points now that Grant Perry is not being used in this offense.

And the point of a short passing game is to not force it downfield and get easy completions that get the ball out quick.

 

09/30/2018 - 5:41pm I know this is very…

I know this is very unpopular, but IF this single data point is indicative of his overall production then I wouldn't mind seeing Uche come in for Gary on obvious passing downs.

09/30/2018 - 3:07am I have no problem running it…

I have no problem running it on first down more than usual. My issue was that every first down DPJ and Collins would come running off the field for Ronnie Bell and a fullback. It screamed “we’re running the ball!”

I get it’s to establish tendency but even deep into the fourth they kept doing it and NW seemed to figure it out. But then on 2nd and long we’d have a big play so I can’t complain too much.

09/27/2018 - 2:08pm Granted I’m from Cincinnati …

Granted I’m from Cincinnati ... but don’t lump us in with the rest of Ohio.

09/25/2018 - 11:16pm I’d move Charbonnet up, I…

I’d move Charbonnet up, I think he’s that good. Maybe even a 1a 1b situation with Evans if they still want to run lots of power and want a bigger back.

09/25/2018 - 10:00pm We're fans... its doesn't…

We're fans... its doesn't matter.

09/25/2018 - 9:58pm 2019 is going to come down…

2019 is going to come down to the offense. The defense is going to take a step back. It will probably only be good and may approach top 15 depending on how many of Hudson/Long/Hill stay. 

Hence, 2019 has to be the year for the offense to be elite. It is going to have to be pass first, something we have yet to see under Harbaugh. The talent is there but we're going to need guys like DPJ/Black/Ruiz/Bredeson/Gentry/McCaffrey/ (or Patterson if he stays) to be all american level players and the tackles to be all conference in some form. It certainly could happen, but none of them are there yet.

09/19/2018 - 2:00pm Hey me too. Let’s go Moe!

Hey me too. Let’s go Big Moe!

Mea culpa

On the DPJ back shoulder touchdown it looks like the SMU cb cramps up. Unless he was just faking it since he got exposed...

So it’s not just us 

09/16/2018 - 11:44am No Evans is simply better…

No Evans is simply better. It’s like you can’t even remember back to last week when he was juking guys all over the field and was our best running back.

09/12/2018 - 9:20pm I  wholeheartedly agree with…

I  wholeheartedly agree with you. I want to see more than 5 plays that actually require the tackles to pass pro, if they struggle vs SMU it’s time for a change.

09/10/2018 - 11:53pm Very true, when your rb can…

Very true, when your rb can pick up a blitzing defender it automatically puts the offense in an advantageous position.

But sometimes people can go a little overboard like the multiple threads saying we need to get rid of jaybaugh because our backs aren’t great pass blockers.

Hell, I heard a caller on WTKA before the season say that the player this team will miss most from 2016 is Deveon Smith solely because of his pass blocking... now that’s ridiculous.

09/10/2018 - 10:04pm There is no fanbase in the…

There is no fanbase in the country that concerns itself more with running back blocking than Michigan’s. 

09/10/2018 - 11:29am Let me say that better. Kent…

Let me say that better. Kent's tape and offer list did not indicate that he was an underrated prospect. And Greene's in person eval also indicated a player who was properly rated. Therefore I was not thrilled with Greene's commitment. However, this year Kent has put up excellent stats and was scouted and it was shown Kent was a different player than he was a year ago, hence my feeling about him changed. I just use Greene as a source because I figure his opinion are worth a whole lot more than mine are. 

TLDR; Kent is a different player than he was when he was last scouted, hence my feeling on him is different as well.

09/10/2018 - 11:13am Bill Greene explicitly…

Bill Greene explicitly stated that Kent was a much improved player from last year. The reason my opinion changed was that Kent improved, Bill Greene is just an educated source who stated that information. 

09/10/2018 - 9:45am This wr recruiting class is…

This wr recruiting class is very confusing, but not necessarily bad. While I like Jackson, Johnson, and Kent (now that Bill Greene has personally scouted Kent and says he deserves a bump) they are all best as slot receivers, a position that we don't usually utilize in our offense as much as others. For those with knowledge, what does this indicate as far as a scheme change?

09/09/2018 - 1:02am This would be a big get. But…

This would be a big get. But even as a Michigan fan I don’t understand why he wouldn’t go to Oregon. It just seems like that’s where his skillset fits the best.

09/07/2018 - 9:31pm I just saw him in the dining…

I just saw him in the dining hall yesterday and don't recall him wearing and boot or brace. And he was walking so it would seem the injury was pretty minor.

09/04/2018 - 10:29pm Not the length, the content…

Not the length, the content. 

But to answer the question I like my posts like Goldilocks: not to long, not too short but just right.

Ok my twisted mind just interpreted that comment in a whole new way. But I’ll post it anyway... I hate myself sometimes

09/04/2018 - 9:17pm This feels like a comment…

This feels like a comment that decided to become a post.

09/02/2018 - 12:15pm I generally agree but my…

I generally agree but my main concern is that our improved qb play will be cancelled out my even worse (not sure how that's possible) tackle play compared to 2017. The staff needs to work in Hudson and maybe even Mayfield to help jumpstart their growth by giving them game reps against lesser competition.

08/27/2018 - 2:13pm In fairness to everybody…

In fairness to everybody here by saying it’s a lineman and that “we won’t like it” you incited extra worry and encouraged guessing who it may be. And that’s why everybody is frustrated.

08/26/2018 - 3:18pm If you think Tarik Black’s…

If you think Tarik Black’s absence costs us two games then I’m afraid you are the dense one.

08/25/2018 - 10:59pm Nobody actually thinks he is…

Nobody actually thinks he is Shea Patterson, it’s just a joke.

Anything to base this on other than MK?

Mentor is a good football school in Ohio. Mitch Trubisky went there fwiw

I think more than anything Drake was concerned about the University’s image as a whole and knew if there was no suspension they would be torn apart by the media, they still are though...
