If you lose the bet send him a shredded $100.00 bill…..or 10,000 pennies (although funny, it might not be funny enough to justify the expense).

A few thoughts on playing Bama:

  • take some shots down field when in one on one coverage. Let’s take advantage to uber athletic wideouts
  • get one on one match ups with UM’s RB’s vs their LB's
  • get them in the championship game when they only have a week to prepare vs having  a month to prepare.
10/16/2018 - 3:44pm Question for Seth and other …

Question for Seth and other “offensive” minds, why is the Zone Read typically run with a inside zone blocking scheme?

Seems to me there would be more stress placed on the read defender if his teammates are all reading and eventually reading for an outside run, which would create more space for the QB to operate against read defender..

06/18/2018 - 10:24pm Congratulations to all of…

Congratulations to all of you that’s found a “diet” that works for YOU.

There is some very good advice in this thread. I’d like to add my .02. Don’t think of your new way of eating as a “diet”. it should be considered a life style. Diets and dieting are temporary. When you diet for an upcoming event (wedding, vacation, bodybuilding show), it’s temporary. When you stop dieting and resume your normal lifestyle you WILL regain the lost weight. This is true for any type of diet/eating regimen.

Successful eating lifestyles vary person to person. I struggle with carbs and do very well with fat. One of the reasons is when I eat bacon and eggs I feel satiated. Cutting out fat for me cuts out the best part of meals (my opinion).

I would suggest trying the keto lifestyle but incorporate cheat meals. I have a cheat day every other Sunday.


Good luck.

Logged in just to offer my .02. Not one bit of bad advice given in the responses (Well, maybe the poster that suggested commuting from Boulder LOL).

One poster mentioned Centennial/Littleton. I leave on the far east end of Centennial and really like the area. Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock and Parker are nice as well. I will say, when Denver metro went through the last housing “crisis” Highlands Ranch was one of the areas south that wasn’t hit as hard and recovered really fast.

Good luck.

That post was a much needed "football" update.

05/22/2013 - 10:48pm Green Expectations

I know Green is rated pretty high and rightfully so....but, he's never strapped on a helmet and played let alone practiced against college football players. We have a known quantitiy in Fitz. Yeah, he had a down year, but the year before he was pretty good and we ALL thought this past year was going to be a break out year for him. I'm saying don't be so quick to right off the RB's we already have on the roster before a new comer even steps on the field.

What are we all going to say IF Fitz holds Green and say Drake Johnson, Rawls or Hayes is the 2nd back in? Green is a Bust?

05/17/2013 - 12:28am Other Options

With a Nickel able to play every down you're not relegated to playing the best four/five DB's. You will also be able to move a LB or DL out. The best 11 may be 3 DL, 3 LB's and 5 DB's or 4 DL, 2LB's and 5 DB's.

05/10/2013 - 5:19pm Gelen Robinson

I like Gelen too, but I like him more as a SAM rather than a WDE.


04/05/2013 - 4:44pm Your Website

Judging by your website you are a hard man to please!! LOL.


BTW, do you have a write up telling us why you like him? Never mind. Should have read on.

04/02/2013 - 8:48pm Your Son

After watching the video, would you want your son to play for him? 

03/28/2013 - 3:17pm Falcon, CO

Falcon is a northern suburb of Coloraso Springs. They play in 4A, the 2nd highest classification in Colorado. It's a relatively new community and school. I've been in Colorado for 21 years and lived in Colorado Springs for a couple years when Falcon was still a praire.


02/12/2013 - 7:39pm SDE vs WDE

SDE has to be a stud against the run as he may deal with more double teams at the point of attack. WDE, not so much.

Here is decent article that explains it...kinda of:…


12/17/2012 - 4:38pm Weight

He looks to have gained a little weight over the course of the last six months. He looked really skinny during the summer's 7 on 7 tourneys.

10/29/2012 - 10:39pm Hoke’s Commitment Policy

If my son or daughter is blessed to be recruited at this level as a father I would welcome Hoke's policy. 

Did yall read/hear about the kid from Texas that was commited to Oklahoma? The kid can't play football anymore.....OU decides to pull his scholly offer.  Now before yall flame me about not being able to fulfill his end of the bargain answer this question, if the kid was commited to UM do you think Hoke pulls the offer given the same set of circumstances?

09/18/2012 - 1:06pm WILL and MLB Reads

Looks like Ross is taking the correct the steps based off of the Guard in front of him and RB action his way. When the game "slows" down for him i.e. more experience, he won't flow so hard with the action he is seeing causing him to be out of position.

Bolden makes the correct read as well. Ideally he needs to meet the pulling TACKLE before he has a chance to square his shoulders to the line of scrimmage. When he can't meet the lineman before he squares up Bolden should have taken on the block on the outside shoulder forcing the RB inside to where the help (Ross) should be.

The good behind this is: the LB's are reading and reacting to their reads and the mistakes that are made on this play are easily corrected.

09/13/2012 - 11:59pm Tweet

i tweeted something very similar to this earlier- #Brockmealer= BOSS

Would love to see his name trending.

06/04/2012 - 11:23pm Deveon Smith

Don't forget about one Mr. Smith. He was some great tools to work with and if five of the nine O-Linemen over the last to cycles work out you or I (well maybe you) might be able to gain 1,000 yards.


03/29/2012 - 11:40pm Inspired Play

One thing Rabbit didn't mention and that is how incredibly inspired the Cadets play. It doesn't matter if they are down by 30 or up by 30, they play hard every play. What they give up in size and athletic ability they make up in playing their "roles" and knowing their responsibilities.

Having played them I can tell you I feel safe knowing our country is in good hands.

Thanks for servings guys.



02/19/2012 - 2:44pm Nice job Ace….

More good news may be coming...per Twitter. Oh my!!

Edit: I type slooooow.




09/18/2011 - 11:04pm TCU

The way things are looking for the Big East right now, i would not be surprised if TCU becomes available.

They would bring a huge TV market with a lot of UM fans in the area. Don't know how they stack up AAU-CIC wise, though. Plus the Big Ten gets a good Texas school with out the Texas politics.

09/09/2011 - 2:37pm Hash-Zone Drops

Looks like Herron may have been anticipating a different route by the reciever or he may have been going to a different (incorrect) zone and realized during the play his angle was wrong.

 It is encouraging to see "in" game improvements.


One other point, this particular play looks like UM is playing man coverage with inside help from Herron to the wide side and RVB on the short side. Carder makes the only right choice. From the start he reads where the pressure is coming from and gets it to the only open receiver.

I do think Herron is at fault...some, but most of the credit should go to a good QB making a good read and throw.


09/05/2011 - 12:49am Pass Coverage

Erik, on the plays where UM blitzed,  did you notice if the DB's were pressing or playing "off" their guys in coverage?

Also, on the plays we did not blitz were our guys (DB's) playing closer to the line of scrimmage? Sorry for the mundane questions. I didn't see the game.


08/29/2011 - 2:05pm My Boss

I've been laughing so hard the last couple of weeks with the MGo Community my Boss just asked to see what I was looking at on the net!


Sorry, carry on.

11/30/2010 - 10:43pm Holiday Bowl Stats

Staggering and he didn't even play the whole game in the Holiday Bowl!! I think he was pulled after the 3rd quarter.

11/09/2010 - 10:39pm Yes!!

Yeah Guys just made my evening!! In Phoenix on business and my hotel doesn't have the Big Ten Network. I come. Thanks a bunch.

11/01/2010 - 10:54pm Couple questions for those

Couple questions for those that want RR and GERG out:

1. If RR was hired for the University of Minnesota job after he was fired from U of M would you be worried?


2. After hearing all the rumors of RR's "medling" with the defensive schemes, not letting his DC's run the defense they are comfortable with and having a clear lack of talent how can we possibly blame the defensive fiasco on Greg Robinson?

My answer to #1- I would be extremely anxious if RR went to any school in the Big Ten.

Answer to #2- I don't think Greg Robinson is THE reason the Defense is bad; however, i'm not sold he is the answer either. He has way too much to overcome, lack of talent/depth and inability to run HIS defensive scheme to be judged my opinion.  

Call me an apologist, but I really think RR needs another year to truly see if the program is moving in the right direction.

10/27/2010 - 1:16am QB/LB isn't your typical HS

QB/LB isn't your typical HS postion combination. The fact that he plays both means to me at least that he has a higher than average football IQ.

After watching the video (I watched the one posted by Bossman on Youtube), I am convinced of three things:

1. he does have a good football IQ 

 2. he has the instincts needed to play LB in college (He plays down hill and he attacks the would be block and he stays behind the ball carrier as he is flowing)

 3. the guy has decent footwork for a HS linebacker.

I like the offer.

10/04/2010 - 7:46pm 9-3!

If we go 9-3 I would be happier than a fat kid locked in a cake factory.

10/02/2010 - 10:34pm Actually, Purdue and Illinois

Actually, Purdue and Illinois are the teams I am most worried about because their offensive philosophy is to spread you out and make you play in space. That kind of O will really exploit our young D.

The rest of the teams are going to come right at you, which gives us a better chance.

10/02/2010 - 10:14pm We will play better!!

An all out passing attack is tough to defend against.  The rest of our schedule we will see I-formations. The schemes will be much more simple.

Gerg will have the D ready.

09/23/2010 - 8:29pm ILB Keys

Agree 100% with that last arrow!

09/23/2010 - 8:28pm Observations of this play

I am making the following analysis of this play based on the assumption Ezeh reads the guard in front of him (to the left of Martin) through to the action of the nearest back (ball carrier), Roh is reading the guard to Martin's right and through to the RB and Mouton is reading the same keys as Ezeh.

Ezeh: has Guard action down (doubling Martin). Because Martin has already slanted to his right a nice hole opens up in front of Ezeh. Two things- Ezeh's keys tell him "run" and his first step should be forward and right; however, since Martin is slanting right his first step should be forward into the hole created by Martin's stunt and the double team block action.

Roh: has Guard action at him (reach block), his first step should be right and forward attacking the guard's inside shoulder. RVB's appears to have outside contain to this side.

Mouton: has same read as Ezeh. Based on Kovacs' action it appears the defensive play call dictates Mouton has outside contain.

I think Mouton play is correct, although I would have liked to see him be more aggresive in taking on the TE.

If Ezeh steps into the hole the guard has no chance to block him. He either makes a TFL or the RB has to bounce outside right now to a waiting Mouton.

We are lucky the ball carrier's vision and feet aren't elite because Roh's missteps create a huge cut back lane.

OK, I said all that to say Ezeh could have played this better, but it was a good play by the offense.

EDIT: I type way to slow. Didn't see the SS's ILB read post.

09/23/2010 - 9:21am I saw many Ben Wallace Fro's

I saw many Ben Wallace Fro's in the stands at The Palace. Never offended me. I say where them...I might go get a dread wig myself.

09/18/2010 - 11:21pm Five Months Ago

If any one would have said five months ago we would be 3-0 with a convincing win against UConn and last minute 72 yard drive against Notre Dame I would have been giddy as a fat kid in a candy store.

I do agree, the lack of fundamentals e.g. outside containment and tackling is frustrating; however, we knew our defense would make "freshmen" mistakes. Hopefully this was our one let down game and we will be o.k. to solid on D the rest of the way.


Here's to the glass being half full.

08/21/2010 - 5:37pm Emotion!!

I get a little teary eyed watching Brock's videos.

07/23/2010 - 7:39pm Kovacs!

Defense: I don't think he will be a surprise . I do think it will be a surprise how difficult it's going to be to beat him out. Kid is a player.

Offense: Hemingway- no reason, just a feeling.

Question, with the hopeful emergence of Banks and Campbell how likely is it that we see Michigan playing a 4-3 with RVB, Martin, Campbell and Banks in all at the same time?

I like this quote.


 The offensive line is a cool position. You don't really get the glory, or praise, but you get to hit a lot of people

04/18/2010 - 5:14pm Isaiah Bell

Is Isaiah Bell injured? I was/am hoping he would have a good spring.

02/21/2010 - 12:52pm Good pick up

I compared Conway's video with one of Kyle Prater's and didn't really see a big difference. Conway's QB doesn't appear to have the arm to get the ball down the field. if this is the case we wouldn't see a highlight film showing Conway's separation. FWIW I like the offer and acceptance.

12/16/2009 - 3:24pm Furman's HS Coach

Furman's HS coach posted over on another forum that U of M and V-Tech are recruiting him as a hybrid LB/S a la Stevie Brown and that is Furman's preferred position.
