QB will be adequate, at least.
Only concern: OL. And really just OTs. Hard to be a champion without all positions solid. We are in the “maybe zone”. Champion teams need to be 2 deep everywhere. Or be lucky. We are neither.
Sorry. Truly I am. But Runyan and who? And #3 OT is a freshman?!!?
I’m totally excited for the season but I don’t know. It’s a big hole, the OT, and a lot of what ifs. Top teams don’t have any holes in their OL. We do have a top D everywhere. We do have very good rbs and receivers. Probably good to very good qb. Having all that is required, but not sufficient (without OL quality and depth), for being elite.
But I could be wrong. (Hope so.)
but I love this team and can’t hardly wait to watch them.

Agree. Was first thinking Montana. Then I thought, wtf, not even Tom MF Brady could beat Osu with this line. Doom.

A competent and deep oline is really what’s missing. Until we have that qb quality is moot.

|04/25/2017 - 11:39am||sports medicine doctor here||
first, the hit was dirty and the blocker must have been aware that he was about to seriously damage the player. if legal it shouldn't be. it can be as crippling as spearing head to head. the player that threw that block intentionally damaged newsome severely, and that type block to the knees can only result in severe knee/leg injury. it should not be allowed. defensive backs must be coached to not throw these blocks and linemen must be trained to avoid being hit like this. like head to head spearing, this should result in ejection, at a minimum.
the potential loss of limb, would have resulted from damage to the neurovascular bundle, depriving the leg of oxygen and nervous impulse. infection could also potentially result in amputation.
the hit sickened me then and does to this day, sealing the fate of Grant, and our season.

|12/06/2016 - 11:38am||Pissed||
I'm pissed off too, over being robbed by those no-call ohio homer refs. Hoping the BIG makes a rule change this off season that refs with ties to teams, are sent to other games where they can be neutral. The sport, the fans, the players deserve to be spared even the appearance of bias. That crew of ohio fans officiating the Game was a travisty.
As far as taking a step back next year, probably. We are losing a ton of starters. But we take a step up at QB and i believe on the O-line. RB should be good, or better. WR/TE will hold. Defence will be a different story. Hard to match the level of play this year. But they will be great just the same. So 2017 i think we will be deeper and better then 2016.
And beyond? Faggeddabodit!!!
|12/06/2016 - 10:54am||Done in by (reply to #3)||
I think they were done in by a lack of depth. A championship team has a two-deep full of starters at each position group. We had this at the D-line, for sure. But the O-line only had a freshman to come in when Newsome went down. Our QB got dinged and we only had O'Corn. When Harbough has 3-4 recruiting cycles with top 5 classes, we will have the depth necessary to win it all. This year we could have "fallen upwards" as you aptly say, but didn't for all those reasons you listed. But truth is, we didn't over or under achieve. With Newsome healthly, or better depth (and talent) at O-line, we beat Iowa. With a healthy Wilton, or a solid backup QB, we beat ohio, even with ohio biased zebras.
Next year, and in the coming years, we will have all the depth necessary at every position to win championships, even with bad calls, key injuries, occasional dropped receptions, and even (mostly) without relying on luck.
Our furture couldn't be brighter. Things are lined up for us to excel. It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
|11/28/2016 - 3:27am||Perhaps. I don't know enough||
Perhaps. I don't know enough to know a great line coach But Sparta and Wisky don't beat OSU either and they sure as hell don't roll the Tide. I'm just saying that having quality depth on the OL, assuming good coaching, would make all the difference. And we will have that soon. And having a competent backup qb will make a big difference. And we will likely have a very quality 2 deep at all positions, like we do now at DL.

|11/27/2016 - 5:49pm||Agree completely. If our||
Agree completely. If our offense, (line, rb, qb), was just a little bit better. Just a little bit deeper, to better absorb an injury or two (Newsome, Speight, and Clark on D), and we would have put this game away when we had the opportunity(s). In a couple more seasons Harbough will have the depth of 4-5 consecutive top 5 recruiting classes and wins this game. And Iowa. And hammers MSU.

Exactly correct. He's doing great now and will certainly improve each week for the next 5-6 weeks. By the game he will be our late season Rudock. But fast. A wonderful team we have.

i've been a fan since coach Bump MF Elliott!!
while always the avid fan, over the last couple of decades, my fandom has become more and more ridiculous.
sleepless friday nights; reading this and other blogs many times a day; stressing over the decisions of 17 y.o. recruits; rewatching games multiple times. not just this season's games. I have a dvd collection of our games going back to the 60's
i'm in honolulu so a noon kick off is a 6 am deal.
and it's a thing, not just me, and not rare. i think that it is a senior phenomenon. a few of us here ages 60, 70, 80. we are more obsessed now than ever. for some it has become an affliction of sorts.
and it's not for lack of what to do. i'm not retired. I practice sports medicine (MD '75), surf, bike, make art, hike, have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren right here with me.
BEWARE! proceed with extreme caution. great danger lies ahead!

|12/09/2015 - 9:29am||blocking out||
you don't need to be a big time recruit to be able to block out. our bigs are not coached to take a guy, put their butt into them and face the basket and stay with him. my old coach would tell us, you can block out anyone for the rebound, no matter how big or athletic they are. just stay in front of them. i don't even see our guys moving in front of players to attempt to block out.
blocking out and getting the defensive rebounds is a coaching, not a recruiting, problem. it's pathetic what we saw last night.
anyone can block out anybody, or be fouled.
