Have to agree with Mangus. In the era of more liberal transferring, kids that are all over the place during recruiting seem to have a higher correlation to transferring after they actually sign on the dotted line. Not sure if there is a way to measure this, and maybe I’m way off base, but it sure seems like it.  This is up there with the Chris Clark saga.

I’m admittedly an Austin homer due to the fact I have family that are extremely close to the Davis family, but I thought today provided a glimpse of what Austin could do. Dugan is no slouch and to the best of my recollection the only basket he scored on Austin was the reverse scoop he made. If Austin can build off this game, continue to defend traditional bigs and score the easy baskets, I don’t think the backup center position will be all that dire this year. 

Edit: I read Beilein’s post game remarks and agree 100% with what he said: small ball teams, he may use Johns off the bench, traditional, Austin. Great to build depth and confidence as this should play to both of their strengths.

Great half for Austin. Real playing time for him will do the team good in the long run.

I don’t want to go all internet conspiracy but the lack of an award for Karan says something about something. Giving the offensive MVP to Shea, no biggie. But giving the offensive skill position award to DPJ? I love DPJ, but I think something is going on here.

You’re forgetting Harbaugh gets an extra tomato can those coaches didn’t. So add an extra win to those records and Harbaugh drops down to 4th.

I’m not the smartest person out there...but I don’t think Saddam was in Iran. 

12/05/2018 - 9:47am One foul was the garbage…

One foul was the garbage push off on a terrible pass that hit Davis right in the chest - I’m not really sure that’s his problem. 

The alley-oop - did he throw it to himself? He jumped, the ball was out of his reach. Unless you’re accusing him of not giving max effort on his jump (which I doubt) how was that his problem? 

I get it, he’s not great. But the dude essentially went two years without playing basketball in a real-game setting and he’s only used 1.25 years of eligibility. DJ Wilson took a redshirt and looked like a hot mess the first year he played and he turned out okay. Apples and oranges yes, but I don’t get why everyone wants to bury him already. 

They need to get him some real minutes against the tomato cans coming up. If he looks like crap in those, then I would agree it might be time to start looking at other options.

A former colleague of mine graduated from high school in the mid-80’s and was recruited by both Michigan and OSU. On his recruiting visit to each, he made contact with the two best players on each team - Spielman and Carter for the bad guys and Harbaugh and Morris from the good guys. I’ll let you guess out of the four of those whom he said was the biggest asshole he ever met. 

When the group he was with encountered Carter, my colleague walked up to him and told him he had brought cleats with him to every recruiting visit with the intentions of having them autographed by the best players. Carter looked at him and said “I don’t sign fucking shoes” and stormed off. To a recruit. My colleague never forgot it.

If Michigan were to lose 62-39 to Florida, I’ll expect to find 75% of the blog not care because it’s “meaningless”, right? Something tells me that won’t happen...

He’s more concerned with trying to recreate 1985 and quintessential Bo then figuring out what offenses actually score points against elite teams in 2018. 

11/25/2018 - 6:21am Another hot take: The…

One more: Michigan needs to strongly consider moving towards an air-raid. I know some people on here would be against it, but to me the strength of Michigan next year will be at WR, and we need to have DPJ, Collins, a healthy Black and a slot maestro on the field at all times IMO.

Since they can’t seem to stop (or at least contain) OSU no matter who’s calling the shots over the last 11 years, it’s time to see if we can outscore them, and you’re not going to do that without a 21st century offense. 

11/25/2018 - 6:21am Another hot take: The…

Another hot take: The consistent use of in-line TE’s that are not above average blockers drives me bonkers. On most days, I have nothing against their pass catching abilities, but since we’re stuck with the old-school “ground and pound” philosophy, these guys contribute very little in that regard, and the use of them just brings another good run defender into the box. 

11/24/2018 - 4:36pm Points has OSU has scored…

Points OSU has scored against Michigan since 08: 42, 21, 37, 34, 26, 42, 42, 42, 30, 31, 62. Fuck everyone. The lowest fucking number on that list is from Rich Rod! How in hell does MSU keep these guys mostly in check and we get embarrassed?

11/24/2018 - 4:28pm If the coaches last name…

If the coaches last name wasn’t “Harbaugh” there wouldn’t be one person around to say he shouldn’t be fired.

Also, if anyone is interested in the D2 playoffs, three Michigan teams are in action today:

Hillsdale (Go Chargers!) @ Kutztown (Andre Reed’s school), noon

Harding @ Ferris, 1 pm

NW Missouri State @ GVSU, 1 pm

The good guys got revenge against Louisville the next time they played them. Maybe the same will hold true tonight.

Probably not a bad thing Rutgers decided to spring this on us and not OSU. Brown will get it cleaned up, just like the Wildcat that never worked after one snap from one team.

It’s shocking what raising the QB level from an F to D- ballpark to an B to A- one will do for a team.

Had to have been MSU - Iowa, right? I can’t imagine when they played the Buckeyes their fans didn’t show.

Be sure to point out the lose-lose scenario to the Sparty fans in your life: A loss to OSU is bad, but a victory all but puts Michigan in the championship game.

I’ll come and face the music: I was pissed and wrote one of those. Shame on me for putting #HotTakes out there after week 1. I truly didn’t think there would be much O-Line improvement and we’d continue to beat our head against a wall on offense because of it. This has proven to be very, very wrong and I couldn’t be happier. One more stop on the Revenge Tour to go!

I don’t understand why the butt hurt Alum football players are from the Lloyd era...or even what they’re mad about honestly. 

10/24/2018 - 3:23pm I went to a small high…

I went to a small high school which sadly uses the Spartan fight song and logo. I think I will beat MSU to the hypothetical punch and write a letter to the school board advising it would be a good time to switch both in light of MSU’s actions. 

10/22/2018 - 1:23pm Hell to the yes. I’ve been…

Hell to the yes. I’ve been waiting for Michigan to beat them and rub their nose in it. Keep doing this every year.

Does anyone have any last minute TE fantasy football advice for owners like myself with Gronk that may have to go searching the waiver wire this morning or their bench to find someone to play?

Also, you can add the best D2 college in Michigan (Hillsdale) is 6-1 with their only loss coming in OT at Michigan Tech earlier this year. They have a showdown coming with Tiffin in a few weeks.

Paul Chryst was a game managing shit-show tonight. Harbaugh was not.

Surprised Sparty has shown two trick plays today with Michigan up next.

Sparty is about to be crushed. 

10/04/2018 - 11:29am Poor execution excuses are…

Poor execution excuses are things that should be only valid in very limited situations. I think Don Brown had some interesting personnel and formations that were kind of, um, out there early Saturday. However, Brian was spot on with his criticism of Gil and the crossing route with Kinnel of how the coach called the right scheme and it wasn’t executed correctly. 

However, contrary to what Sexy Al and Clapping Hoke think, a longer term issue with execution is not on the players at all. Either the coaches are not teaching the plays and concepts well or they’re presenting a terrible game plan. 

10/02/2018 - 4:34pm I’ve only been to a handful…

I’ve only been to a handful of Michigan football games, yet two I’ve been at made this list: 09 Indiana and 13 Akron. I must not have very good luck. 

09/29/2018 - 11:56pm He blew through two time…

He blew through two time outs before the 4th down play. If he keeps both and they still get stopped short, he would’ve had all three and may have been able to get the ball back. Oh and giving the ball to Sanders was idiotic.

Proud of the comeback. Not impressed with the sloppiness, lathargic start and penalties (minus the Higdon ‘thing’). 

09/29/2018 - 5:38pm Can’t wait for the Harbaugh…

Can’t wait for the Harbaugh and Brown apologists to explain this one and how they’re still the coaching staff Michigan needs.

Will Michigan put 79 on them this time?
