People are generally nervous about things they have no control over so not sure why that's such a surprise to you. I think everyone here trusts the coaches but I don't think you should conflate that with the idea they are perfect or don't make mistakes. Good players make million dollar coaches look good, bad players make million dollar coaches look bad. Look no further than JOK and Shea Patterson for evidence of that.

11/14/2018 - 4:19pm Woods should probably be…

Woods should probably be playing Viper and not safety. I remember reading a report from the Alabama-Mississippi high school all star game where a rivals analyst thought he was a tight end in college. That pretty much confirmed to me he's probably not a safety.

11/14/2018 - 3:50pm I was hoping Gil and Hawkins…

I was hoping Gil and Hawkins getting PT meant they were on their way to outplaying their recruiting rankings, but seeing these dorfs against Rutgers of all people is frightening for next year. Give me Josh Ross and Daxton Hill please.

David Pollack is a complete dick.

My personal top 6, RIGHT NOW:

1 - Alabama
2 - Clemson
3 - Michigan
4 - Georgia
5 - Notre Dame
6 - Oklahoma

Committee will obviously put ND at 3, forgetting that H2H matters ONLY if 2 teams are seen as otherwise equal. Game was in South Bend 10 weeks ago, things have changed.

IMO Logan Brown and Lance Dixon are the two that really sting because we badly need tackles and right now there is no heir apparent to Hudson at Viper.

The Justin Rogers recruitment next year will be interesting. Going to be a tough pill to swallow if they can't sign him because that would make three 5 star instate OL to go elsewhere in the last two years. 

11/13/2018 - 12:25pm Logan Brown and Bryce…

Logan Brown and Bryce Benhart also ranked extremely high. Classic "what if" with those two.

11/13/2018 - 12:13pm It' not an error. Individual…

Lorenz just said Hinton fell to somewhere around #100 or so and that his player page is just an error. So there's that.

I've watched this play a dozen times and still have no earthly idea what Devin Gil is doing. Woof.

11/12/2018 - 9:15pm I'm going to be sick. That's…

I'm going to be sick. That's just so cruel to happen to someone who has worked so hard.

They lose to a double digit seed on the first weekend of the tournament again?

11/12/2018 - 6:57pm Sorry if I wasn't clear but…

Sorry if I wasn't clear but was referring to McDoom and Crawford both leaving the program because DPJ, Black, and Collins were going to take all their snaps. You're now seeing Oliver Martin cut into Perry's snaps and targets. Nate Johnson was booted last year but don't think there is any doubt he'd be behind the aforementioned four if he was still on the team. 

11/12/2018 - 3:10pm Fair enough on Higdon, I don…

Fair enough on Higdon, I don't necessarily agree but understand your reasoning.

Re: Devin Gil starting next year, that doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies. As Brian said the number of big plays he's been responsible for is alarming. I think more natural linebacker talents like Anthony or McGrone make a run for a starting spot alongside Ross next year.

 

11/12/2018 - 3:05pm If anyone has noticed a…

If anyone has noticed a pattern here it's that our highly ranked WR recruits have all passed by our lower ranked upperclassmen. If there is one complaint I have about the 2019 recruiting class (and it's really the only one because the class is fantastic) it's that our WR commits are not only small but also way down the rankings. Not saying they can't be good players because I think a guy like Giles Jackson will be lethal in the slot, but our last five WR commits are all 6 feet or below and none are in the top 100. In fact only Jackson is in the top 247. Landing a guy like Cornelius Johnson or Kyle Ford is important, but it will be gravely important in 2020. Need another WR haul like we had in 2017.

11/12/2018 - 1:26pm Depends, I think Jordan…

Depends, I think Jordan Anthony and Cameron McGrone are going to have their say before it's all said and done.

11/12/2018 - 1:08pm Agree with your take on…

Agree with your take on Higdon, at this point his vision is just a flaw in his game we have to live with and he's going to make several cuts a game that leave chunks of yards on the field. Still, he's been our best back this year by far. 

Also the Ross/Gil experiment at WLB is feeling like the Furbush/Uche one at SAM earlier this year. One guy is clearly more talented than the other and should be receiving the majority of the snaps. They finally made that decision with Uche and they should do the same with Ross. He's the best WLB on the team.

 

11/12/2018 - 11:57am Thanks for the writeup Rob…

Thanks for the writeup Rob. My two cents having also seen some of these guys:

Lance Dixon is every bit the prospect Logan Brown is. Would have been a PERFECT Viper. Not sure what he sees in Frames Janklin but they are going to play him at a traditional linebacker spot at PSU and I don't see how he fits that. He's basically another Willie Gay.  

I agree with you on Dobbs, very athletic but something is just missing there. I think Karsen Barnhart is the better OL prospect between the two.

I think Wheeler ends up at fullback eventually. Don't think he has the speed to play on Don Brown's defense. 

Seldon is extremely tiny but very sticky. Will be interesting to see how much bigger he can get because he can definitely cover.

Never understood the Woods offer and still don't. Not even the best DL on his own team, that would be Hunt IMO. Reminds me of when UM took Paea.

Two guys you didn't mention, Makari Page (WB) and Damon Payne (Belleville) are both top 100 type talents.

11/11/2018 - 11:13pm LOL.

LOL.

Sam Webb posted today that the second Jeff Brohm goes to Louisville he's putting in a crystal ball to Michigan for Karlaftis.

Rick Neuheisel lol.

11/08/2018 - 4:38pm Man, as good as the offense…

Man, as good as the offense is playing I can't help but wonder what this offense would look like if guys like Newsome, Asiasi, and Wheatley were all on the field. Still, JBB and Runyan have improved so much and the TE's are doing pretty good too. Onward!

11/06/2018 - 7:32pm Agree, seems like a great…

Agree, seems like a great kid and I love his "hard is is undefeated" motto. That said he probably wants to play and he can do that at a smaller school. Best of luck Kurt.

Love DP. This was a great interview.

11/05/2018 - 6:04pm Here's an awesome Chris…

Here's an awesome Chris Webber interview from Rich Eisen today. You can hear in Webber's voice how much this weekend meant to him. Hopefully Coach B and Chris can link up sometime in the near future.

10/28/2018 - 10:18pm No.

No.

10/28/2018 - 10:01pm No that was Keegan.

No that was Keegan.

10/28/2018 - 9:51pm Who is acting surprised? Sam…

Who is acting surprised. Sam Webb was also convinced he was visiting for the PSU game so the timing of this is somewhat unexpected. But I guess yelling at posters who deliver pertinent news is your bag. Carry on then.

10/28/2018 - 9:42pm I think it's funny that you…

I think it's funny that you think I'm Maizen but I must say hijacking every thread that I post in with this stuff is getting old. You can speak with ClassofLSA2000 if you'd like that confirmed but I think you need to move on and find some new material instead of accusing people of being other posters every time they deliver news or an opinion that you don't like, thanks.

Also to the poster above, I posted this because he was arguably UM's top offensive tackle left on the board. Sam Webb just went down to see him in Minnesota and interviewed his entire family. He's not doing that if he didn't think UM didn't have a good shot or was a serious player. But you "just googled him" so clearly you know something I don't.

UM's depth chart at RB is wide open next year.

Because he's looking at schools closer to home.

10/28/2018 - 8:34pm Not defending maizen but…

Not defending maizen but highlights aren't "tape" and even if it were no one here is qualified to analyze such. I have no problem with people putting stock into what the recruiting analysts think.

10/25/2018 - 11:44am I thought he played the best…

I thought he played the best game of the year on Saturday. Fumble could have been costly but he made some really nice runs on the day.

10/24/2018 - 8:38pm I think you also point out…

I think you also point out to him all the kids on the team from warm weather states like Florida and Georgia who are handling it fine. Also 19 of the 32 NFL teams are in cold weather cities. Might as well get used to what winter is like now than later.

10/23/2018 - 11:25am I said this too and people…

I said this too and people are still responding without taking two seconds to verify the source. Gotta love the internet.

Linking unverified news accounts? Come on.

10/22/2018 - 5:20pm Stupid hypothetical…

These threads are getting worse and worse.

And anyone saying they are too scared to play Bama and would rather not make the playoff is a fucking idiot. 

10/22/2018 - 1:40pm For the love of god stop…

For the love of god stop asking this fucking question and just let things play out.

10/21/2018 - 11:10am MSU also has the worst…

MSU also has the worst passing defense in the B1G and we didn't take advantage of that. I'm happy as hell we won but I'm not going to lie to myself and pretend everything on offense is fine. I love the way we are running the ball but the pass game still has a major way to go.

10/21/2018 - 11:09am That doesn't explain the…

That doesn't explain the utter lack of imagination in the passing game. This is a problem that still needs fixing let's not let the win delude the truth.

10/19/2018 - 3:51pm Don't the bars close at…

Don't the bars close at midnight there as well? Thought that campus was very average looking.

10/19/2018 - 2:11pm The tigernet comments in the…

The tigernet comments in the Crouch article are quite something. Apparently Harbaugh is paying Crouch with a bagman and getting fired this year for not beating OSU. Oh and they've never heard of Don Brown and think our weather resembles Antarctica. 

In addition to that, they linked an interview with the Clemson 247 guy Paul Sterlow who claims UM is falling off because of something they are doing behind the scenes and he's skeptical Crocuh ever visits UM? Made no sense.

10/18/2018 - 5:06pm Said the same thing about…

Said the same thing about the pass game this past Sunday. Way too many long developing routes and not enough shorter stuff designed to beat zones. Pep did the same thing in Indy. I don't get it. Take the free yards not everything has to be 25 yards downfield.

10/18/2018 - 4:41pm Exactly this guy is such a…

Exactly this guy is such a clown and only changed his tune when bigshooter1 posted a positive Gary update. Why do people still pay attention to him.

10/17/2018 - 9:30pm No.

No.

10/17/2018 - 9:30pm No it's not.

No it's not.

10/17/2018 - 5:56pm Have to agree, which is why…

Have to agree, which is why I always laugh at fans who watch a 3 minute highlight tape on hudl and yell at the people who put stock in the recruiting rankings about how awesome the "film" is. 

10/17/2018 - 5:53pm After watching this film I…

After watching this film I really don't get why the staff stopped recruiting guys like David Bell and Milton Wright and took this commitment. In addition I worry about the size of the WR's we are taking. Bell, Johnson, Jackson, and Kent are all extremely thin and short. Just seems like an overkill of slot guys.

10/17/2018 - 5:50pm If stars don't matter why is…

If stars don't matter why is Alabama in the CFP every year?

10/17/2018 - 5:21pm I really don't think we need…

I really don't think we need to be over agressive this game, just let our 4 DL do work and see if Lewerke can find windows against our #1 pass defense. 

10/17/2018 - 5:19pm All hail Don Brown.

All hail Don Brown.
