and not show up in regular games.  This points to a lack of depth, perhaps.  They can win, but not consistently.

"Michigan MUST NOT commit stupid penalties" [Mr Grainger]

Michigan has committed very few stupid penalties this year.  Most penalties are judgment calls, and we had quite a few go against us (but not many against Wisconsin).  If you are playing hard (you know, blocking or defending Felton Davis), then there will be potential penalty calls.  These will not be stupid penalties but rather the cost of playing on the road.  Have to play through them.

10/14/2018 - 10:24pm Right.  One common opponent …

Right.  One common opponent -- we beat Northwestern on the road, Spartans lost to Northwestern at home.

10/13/2018 - 7:36pm This gives them extra juice…

This gives them extra juice but, more importantly, gives us extra urgency.  They've won a few they shouldn't have won against us over the years, so this ensures we will take them seriously.

10/13/2018 - 7:34pm Dantonio is not a great…

Dantonio is not a great coach.  A great coach needs to show more consistency and gets his team prepared for all the games.  Remember, Harbaugh has a better record since arriving at Michigan.

10/12/2018 - 1:23pm Yup.

He said out loud what…

Yup.

He said out loud what a lot of 5 stars are probably thinking, and it's not necessarily a bad way to think.  Football's a rough game, so there's some logic to getting the career going as quickly as possible.  On the other hand, there's no guarantee that he'll deserve to start as a freshman or play in the NFL after 3 years in college.  Confidence and ambition are good, but so are wisdom and enjoyment of life.

10/11/2018 - 2:47pm LOL

LOL

10/07/2018 - 9:39pm Yeah, those are good!

Yeah, those are good!

10/07/2018 - 3:54pm I disagree. The 2015…

I disagree. The 2015 Michigan State game with the blocked punt unlucky.  But the spot in the 2016 OSU game was the difference between us going to the playoff and not winning the B1G.  That spot was just a 50-50 call, and on replay it looked like the refs got it wrong.  Not that we should have won the game, but there was some bad luck involved in our loss.

10/06/2018 - 10:32pm Should be a good game next…

Should be a good game next week.  Wisconsin is better than any team we've played since Notre Dame.  But they're not as good as Notre Dame, and this game is at Michigan.

Plato, Socrates, Aristotle?  MORONS

Yes, I was laughing out loud all the way through.  The Penn State / Princess Bride spot was my favorite -- also Indiana Jones..

1st & 10 at NW 29: (12:49 - 2nd) Donovan Peoples-Jones run for 25 yds to the Nwest 4 for a 1ST down

The next play was our first TD.

I actually followed and understood this one.  Thanks!

09/22/2018 - 10:35pm Yeah.  The pass interference…

Yeah.  The pass interference calls have been equally absurd.  

09/22/2018 - 10:34pm Yeah, it's hard to believe…

Yeah, it's hard to believe how arbitrary that penalty is.  

09/22/2018 - 10:29pm Disagree.  He tackled the QB…

Disagree.  He tackled the QB in normal fashion.  There was no "launching".

09/22/2018 - 12:35pm +1

O'Maury Samuels on end around.

09/22/2018 - 12:32pm Expectations for Martinez a…

Expectations for Martinez a bit too high.  He's a true freshman in first road game, I believe.

09/22/2018 - 12:30pm M offensive line looks good…

M offensive line looks good.  As does defensive line.

Love the advanced moneyball stat and graphic representation!

09/15/2018 - 10:50pm Yes, it's horrible the way…

Yes, it's horrible the way it is.  Totally a judgment call, but huge penalty or nothing.  

TCU QB just threw TD pass to OSU defensive lineman.  I guess I can go to bed now.  

 

CURSE YOU GODS (just kidding) (c;

How about TCU?  Currently beating Ohio State.

Tiny Feather was great at fullback that year.

Coaches need to practice too.  You take what the opposition gives you.

09/11/2018 - 6:05pm I agree, StephenRKass.  In…

I agree, StephenRKass.  In fact, that's been my number one complaint with Harbaugh -- not giving the second string QB enough playing time.  QB injuries happen all the time, and we need to be able to win with when that happens.  Same thing for the OL.  For some reason, we can substitute all the other positions, but for QB and OL it seems that we never take the starters out unless the game is out of reach, and even then sometimes we don't.  Coincidentally, QB and OL have been our weakest positions.  At least McCaffrey was forced to get some playing time against Notre Dame, due to Patterson cramping.

09/09/2018 - 9:57pm Good to way to look at it!

Good to way to look at it!

09/09/2018 - 9:52pm What this about "Harbaugh on…

What this about "Harbaugh on Harbaugh violence"?   Some sort of Harbaugh connection to Florida State?

09/08/2018 - 5:33pm Thank you!  Some people are…

Thank you!  Some people are never satisfied...

09/07/2018 - 1:51pm I like both Rod and Mario …

I like both Rod and Mario (though I haven't watched them in recent years, as I've avoided the Tigers since their competitiveness slipped).

I always found that Rod was remarkably accurate in his technical commentary.  He'd say something like, "watch for the hit and run", and the hit and run would follow shortly thereafter.  Really knows his baseball, and I found him found to listen to.  Good sense of humor.  Funny thing, I like Mario also.  

09/06/2018 - 6:15pm The refs were pretty bad. …

The refs were pretty bad.  That one spot that got overruled was hilarious, with the commentator (Flutie, I believe) saying over and over again how there was nothing to overturn the call in all those replays, even though each replay clearly showed DPJ at 38 and the ball was spotted at the 37.  At least they got that one right on the review.

I disagree with the targeting and Winovich calls, but at least those were plausible.

09/06/2018 - 4:12pm I disagree.  By the time…

I disagree.  By the time Metellus saw the collision coming, there was not much he could do.  Both players were moving at high speed, so he had to prepare his body for impact.  The shoulder was the lesser risk as far as injury (as opposed to helmet to helmet).  Nothing he could do, and a bad call as far as I'm concerned.   

09/06/2018 - 1:24pm Nice diagrams, but I'm…

Nice diagrams, but I'm afraid it all went over my head!  I'm bad at football.

08/31/2018 - 7:48pm Dantonio should leave…

Dantonio should leave football.  He's not good for the sport.  I believe there's something to MSU culture issues.

08/31/2018 - 7:40pm Yup.  Absolutely terrible…

Yup.  Absolutely terrible call.

08/31/2018 - 7:39pm Horrible call on the double…

Horrible call on the double unsportsmanlike.  

08/21/2018 - 10:16pm Warriner's Ohio State teams,…

Warriner's Ohio State teams, when he was offensive line coach a few years back, were outstanding.  Is it possible that his coaching moves everyone closer to ceiling than floor?

08/21/2018 - 3:25pm I was laughing out loud for…

I was laughing out loud for 5 minutes straight.  Thanks

08/17/2018 - 10:53pm His major asset is arm…

His major asset is arm strength with regard to throwing the football.  Was that the case with Funchess?

08/17/2018 - 11:53am Good story!  So Patterson…

Good story!  So Patterson and Gary faced each other in high school!

08/17/2018 - 11:51am This sounds fantastic! …

This sounds fantastic!  Please send to Jim Harbaugh ASAP!

08/13/2018 - 4:23pm Right.  Better to do the…

Right.  Better to do the work of trusting the scouting services, rather than one's own lying eyes.

08/13/2018 - 4:21pm One million percent is…

One million percent is minimal acceptable, in my opinion.

08/07/2018 - 1:24pm One of the reasons for its…

One of the reasons for its importance is because if the position doesn't work out well, then you're in trouble.  So when Ulizio did not work out well as a starter, our season went downhill.  It was important for him (or someone in that spot) to step up.

08/07/2018 - 12:40pm He actually looked pretty…

He actually looked pretty fast too me -- seemed to always be pulling away from defenders when it came down to a foot race.  

08/06/2018 - 5:33pm Brad Hawkins was another…

Brad Hawkins was another good receiver recruit.  Anyway, after having the top wide receiver recruit in the country last year (DPJ) I'm still not complaining.  Worst case, Brian is right and we aren't in the running for any of the remaining top uncommitted recruits.  Best case, JERRY RICE!

08/04/2018 - 5:36pm Like the rest of you, I know…

Like the rest of you, I know nothing.  But these type of recruits have a Beilein feel.  We're all disappointed that we didn't get the 5 stars Tyus Battle and Trevon Bluiett, then we win 2 B1G tournament championships and go the NCAA championship game with 2 star Mohammed Ali Abdur Rahkman.

08/03/2018 - 10:54pm From your mouth to Harbaugh…

From your mouth to Harbaugh's play-calling, I pray.

08/02/2018 - 9:47pm Well he was about 4th string…

Well he was about 4th string last year after many years in the program.  So he wouldn't be expected to be a factor this year.
