I also feel better about the offense now than during the game.  One thing I thought about is how much better Onwenu s conditioning is this year. He’s been playing solidly all the way until the 2nd team comes in.

Basketball, ok. Lacrosse and soccer? Let’s be honest Nobody cares. And by nobody I mean Broadcasters and 90% of the public.

If the OL can just get to average ish I think the passing game will be quite good. Shea is a clear improvement and he and the receivers are getting more comfortable.

I’m sure the coaches thought we could line up and play a base offense and just physically dominate SMU. Not happening

FML. BTN is unwatchable. Our offense is unwatchable right now.

I think Haskins is unlikely to see much time at RB if Gray and Charbonnet stick with their commitment

Yeah not the best idea Wardes had

Clemson’s offense looks very sharp with Bryant

I bought the offensive game plan was solid.  Work the running game, let the OL be aggressive. I don’t mind Shea only passing for 125 yds, he was efficient and very accurate. 

09/08/2018 - 5:42pm Nice to see the offense run…

Nice to see the offense run the ball nd score points.  But until that happens in conference play I’m not getting too excited 

09/07/2018 - 4:07pm I think Evans had a better…

I think Evans had a better chance of making that cut tan Higdon. Evans got 5 yards back on the speed option.  I don’t think Higdon could have done that. 

I like Higdon just saying if blocking is going t remain iffy I’d want Evans in for his ability to navigate traffic better

Why you wouldn’t choose option 4 is beyond me

It still amazes me that so many people get upset and respond to posters that are just looking for a response.  My younger sister never figured that out either, just ignore and the troll (or older brother) will get bored. 

09/04/2018 - 7:28pm Why don’t you care about…

Why don’t you care about winning titles? I think that was part of the issue with Bos bowl record. It was all about winning the Big 10. Seemed like once the conference title was decided the program thought : mission accomplished now go have fun in California or Florida. I’ve never understood why the national championship (however subjective that was decided) wasn’t the goal. You had to win the conference to win the national title

09/04/2018 - 7:22pm You may not propose that. 

You may not propose that.

He got a lot of hate around here.  Maybe the mental issues he at at Michigan we’re just bad coaching since as you say he’s in the NFL

It’s been 10 years, so maybe waiting another 10 will get Michigan a godd OL

Stunts killed our OL last year. What makes you think we won’t see that again a lot this year? And 2 of the sacks were just Runyan getting flat out beat. 

Im not writing off the season or calling for coaches to get fired but if the OL doesn’t improve a lot we’re going to have another 8-4 season. 

09/02/2018 - 2:21pm You know what every team in…

You know what every team in every game has to overcome “breaks”.  the stream of what ifs that’s been prevalent around here does my head in.  It’s been a combination of things resulting in a .500 record over the past 18 games. OL, QB, penalties, big plays given up by the defense, poor clock management, poor special teams etc. A general air of disorganization. 

09/02/2018 - 1:34pm So the QBRs I listed were…

So the QBRs I listed were from ESPNs box score which were raw QBR (I believe this is the NFL metric). Using sports reference college rating system Michigan’s QBs ratings are

2015

Ruddock 141.3 (from 133 in 2014)

2016

Speight 139.8

JOK 121.0

Patterson 121.0

2017

JOK 102.1

Speight 121.9

Patterson 151.5

2018

Patterson 123.6

Speight 81.5

 

So a clear regression in QB rating since 2015  especially Speight. is this all Peps fault? No.  But unless the OL gets better it doesn’t matter much who’s coaching the QBs  

 

 

 

 

09/02/2018 - 12:56pm So you think we’ll win all…

So you think we’ll win all but 1 or 2 of our remaining games? Let’s say you’re right, and assume we lose to OSU and one of MSU, PSU and Wisconsin.  We still finish 3rd (likely) in the division and go to the outback or citrus bowl, and finish like 15th in the final rankings.  In year 4 of Harbaugh.  Lots of people saying we can’t expect to be Alabama or OSU. Why the hell not? 

09/02/2018 - 12:43pm The QB play seemed better…

The QB play seemed better but both Patterson and McCaffrey had QBRs in the 30s, Wimbush’s rating was 62. The RBs rushed for 3.1 ypc.  Runyan got his ass handed to him all night, gave up at least 2 of the 3 ND sacks.  Both on stunts...

when you have to talk about the punter averaging 43 yards as a bright spot you’re really stretching.

Can the team turn things around? Absolutely, just think about 2014 OSU.  But the odds are against us, given how shitty the OL looked and how many boneheaded plays we made whether DPJ on the punt return, Hawkins dropping sure INT, penalties, etc. At this point the entire schedule is toughest part.  Even  assuming SMU is a gimme is over,y optimistic.

Are you high?

Runyan is terrible at LT.  the whole line was bad. Offense looks about the same as last year.

I really thought, despite being a pessimist, that this year was the year we would be in contention for the playoffs. Tonight was the first time I didn’t even watch the whole game.  That 7-5 prediction by Sharpe & Parker doesn’t look so.crazy now

Welp this isn’t what I expected

I remember right after the loss to South  arolina, that a number of people on here thought another 5 loss season was in the cards for this season.  The team could be better but a tougher schedule.   To be fair that was before Shea was eligible though.

Forget the question of whether he beat his wife. He ordered sex toys delivered to his office. He fucked a co worker also in his office. Maybe he’s not a “bad guy” but he should have been fired for those two things alone. I work in banking where bad begphavior is tolerated if you generate enough revenue. But fucking a co worker in the office is ALWAYS a fireable offense. I personal,y know 2 guys who were fired immediately for that. Idiots.

Sadly I did read some of the comments. To be fair there were a small number of rational comments but holy shit most of those posters...man I don’t know. Strange times we live in.

I don’t know why the situation with Meyer became the last straw for me, but it was. The blatant hypocrisy pisses me off at work and pisses me off with college football.  I wish I was a morally bankrupt asshole so I could become an ultra successful wealthy individual

Does team space mean cameras in the locker room and showers? Dorm rooms?

 

Maybe workouts should be videoed but not  surveillance in every team space

Playing HS football in the mid 80s we were on,y allowed to have water during the one break.  In the first week of summer practices during our conditioning period called “county fair” I passed out. Ambulance called. Go to hospital and given a myelogram before being told heatstroke. 

Nothing changed in the way the head coach ran practice, no more water breaks. 

It was a badge of honor in a way o have passed out... a lot of guys puked but I was the only one who WENT UNTIL HE BLACKED OUT!

when I got to college and could have water any time I needed it and had trainers keeping an eye on things it made me realize how bad my HS coaching staff was.
