I tend to agree with this.  He is a projected top 5 pick in the draft.  Not really a plug and play situation with zero blip.  They'll feel the effects.

Son of a bitch, you're right.  Wow, too many alcoholic beverages over the past 25 years has ruined my good senses.  I thought that lame ass song was from Rocky.  Fuck, it should've been in Rocky though.  What the hell is it doing in Karate Kid?  No place there, I say.  That's a Rocky song if I ever heard a Rocky song.

You're the Best

Joe Esposito

Try to be best
‘Cause you're only a man
And a man's gotta learn to take it

Try to believe
Though the going gets rough
That you gotta hang tough to make it

History repeats itself
Try and you'll succeed

Never doubt that you're the one
And you can have your dreams!

You're the best!
Around!
Nothing's gonna ever keep you down
You're the Best!
Around!
Nothing's gonna ever keep you down
You're the Best!
Around!
Nothing's gonna ever keep you down

Watching videos of Dax it's impressive that after he makes the INT he just blows by every player on his way to the end zone and a pick 6.  Legit speed.  No doubt about his 4.3 forty.  I agree with DG that he could probably play both ways, O and D.

Can he enroll early, like next week?

We now have bonafide big star power at safety.  Man, this is a HUGE get for Michigan.

09/18/2018 - 9:00pm If Shea ends up as one of…

If Shea ends up as one of the top 2 ranked QB's in the B1G this season then I think he goes pro.  Otherwise it's a toss-up.  But like others have said I am just enjoying the ride this season.

09/18/2018 - 11:49am The next two games -- vs…

The next two games -- vs Nebraska and @NW -- worry the piss out of me.  Both teams have good coaches who tend to get the most out of their players.  NW is good enough to steal one on their home turf.  Our guys are riding two 25+ point victories so they're feeling good but we still have obvious flaws.  Both Nebraska and NW are having meh to bad seasons that would be made infinitely better by beating Michigan.  Neither are rivals.  Our guys may not be completely focused.

Just call me Mr. Sunshine.

09/18/2018 - 11:35am "I don't think  Michigan was…

"I don't think  Michigan was okay losing that one to save up plays for later in the season. "

And I think Harbaugh would 100% agree with that statement.  The whole notion about saving the playbook for more important games is bullshit.  We might have a few trick plays, i.e. flea flickers, inside shovel passes, passes off a jet sweep, etc, saved up but I think this flavor of offense is what we're going to see for the remainder of the season.  And that's not a bad thing if the OL improves and gels.

F losing to MSU.  We're rolling the rest of the B1G.  B1G champs 2018.

09/17/2018 - 11:40pm Fuck Alabama.  Just go to…

Fuck Alabama.  Just go to Michigan, young man.  We're better in so many other ways.  But, you'll probably choose Alabama so you got that goin' for ya.  Which is not nice.

The anti jinx.  I like it.

09/17/2018 - 8:38pm Bust out 33% of the…

Bust out 33% of the remaining 50% against each of Wiscy, MSU and PSU.  Then bust out 85% of the remaining 28% against OSU.  Then bust out 93% of the remaining 16% in the B1G championship game.  Then let er ride with all 168% of our playbook in the CFP.  THAT, my friends, is the key to running the table in the B1G and winning the CFP championship.

I was scrolling through the comments to see if anybody had a comment about "mum", because I wanted to be the first to respond to it.  Damn.  Hard to be first to anything on the Internet.

09/17/2018 - 10:36am Agree, bad ref is bad.  If…

Agree, bad ref is bad.  If it's an equipment issue and equipment means player safety then why didn't the ref stop play or throw a flag?  Instead, he disrupted Devin's focus (and others in the vicinity) on the play which may have helped SMU to the first down.

09/17/2018 - 9:53am I don't think they hate…

I don't think they hate Michigan at all.  Nor do they like SMU.  But maybe they had money on SMU to cover?  Or they're incompetent.  Probably the latter.

09/17/2018 - 9:50am Devin should've lined up…

Devin should've lined up directly behind the ref or to the side of him, then bowled his ass over as soon as the play started.  Refs are part of the field of play, right?  Woops, sorry Mr. Referee.

It was a 25 point win that felt like it could’ve easily been 35 or 40. 

09/14/2018 - 10:08pm From the commitment post and…

From the commitment post and on, I really like this kid.  I have a feeling that he's going to be a great WR for Michigan.  I put my money on the guys that pride themselves on their hard work to be better.

This is seemingly a game with an infinite amount of time.  So many points, so little time.

It's redemption week #2 for the D.  SMU puts up a goose egg.  Michigan 59-0.

Thanks for outing me.  Sheesh!

Signed,

Don Brown

09/12/2018 - 9:13pm Later on against the tougher…

Later on against the tougher type teams I'd like to see Shea do a full 90 and pump fake the bubble screen then launch it vertically.  That should burn an aggressive D that is expecting Michigan's "favorite" side to side passing plays.

I've e-mailed that one to Harbaugh.  I got a thank you form letter in return.

09/12/2018 - 2:55pm "Just watching Michigan all…

"Just watching Michigan all year last year when I was hurt, I could tell they had the pieces. Their defense was unbelievable, had the coaching staff, the offense was great..."

Uh, ex-squeeze me?  I baking powder?  No.  And that's why you're here, Shea.

09/11/2018 - 11:22am The idea is not terrible and…

The idea is not terrible and I think the coaches do it, but only after getting a sizeable lead first.  Winning the game is the #1 priority.  So you'll see Michigan's game plan for most of the game.  Then maybe more vertical passing.  We are in the same boat.  I'd love to see Michigan's game plan evolve to more vertical and less side to side and flats pass plays.

09/09/2018 - 11:42pm Florida State signed off on…

Florida State signed off on their demise by letting Jimbo go.  All due respect to Harbaugh's protege but it will be a while before FSU regains their footing.

Garnering the attention of 3 OL on one play screams dominance.

09/09/2018 - 6:59pm They had to, else Gary was…

They had to, else Gary was gonna blow that play up.  The word that comes to mind for Rashan Gary is DOMINANT.

09/09/2018 - 6:24pm Franklin is a douche. 44-6…

Franklin is a douche. 44-6 and the dude called pass plays to finish the game. 

09/09/2018 - 6:11pm Come on now. I’ll tale Shea…

Come on now. I’ll tale Shea 6 times a week and twice on Sunday over Dylan, right now. I think Dylan will develop and could be very good. Just needs to develop a little more. I like him though. Good number 2. 

I’ll say it before you...I had a good number 2 today. Hahahahaha

09/09/2018 - 6:05pm The closest we’ve had in the…

The closest we’ve had in the last 30 years to a QB throwing a perfect dart on the run like that is Tate Forcier. And Shea is way better at it. I’ll say it again, Shea will be our best QB since Henne. Not gonna say better than at this point but he’s got a full season to prove it. I like his chances. 

09/09/2018 - 2:38pm And then their secondary…

And then their secondary will proceed to have the best games of their lives when they play us. Fuckin Sparta. 

Edit: SPARTY, not Sparta. Sorry, my fellow Greeks!

09/08/2018 - 4:54pm Run blocking was good but…

Run blocking was good but with WMU caveat.  Pass blocking was better this week but with the WMU caveat.  I really wanted to see more vertical passing plays.  Too much side to side and flat stuff for my liking.  Shea still needs to learn to chuck it away when under duress.  All in all it was a good win and hopefully gives the offense some confidence moving forward.

09/08/2018 - 1:43am Then you had to walk uphill…

Then you had to walk uphill on Main, both ways, to get back to your automobile.

I know it's true because I did that, but only cuz I was drunk and couldn't find my car.

09/08/2018 - 12:46am I say plug Gary in anywhere…

I say plug Gary in anywhere on the D line that has the biggest need.  That dude can ball as a DE or inside.

09/08/2018 - 12:41am My educated guess is the…

My educated guess is the coaching staff watches 10X the game tape that anyone on this blog watches.  Harbaugh, Brown, et al, are probably examining last week's game and WMU vids as we speak.

09/07/2018 - 5:18pm "Probably should have hired…

"Probably should have hired someone who knows how to run spread stuff instead of McElwain."

I heard Rich Rod is available.   /s

38-0 Michigan.  A shutooot, as they say in Canada.

I like how Zordich came out firing and pissed off that we didn't play well in the first quarter.  Sounds like a guy that takes pride in his coaching.

I have a feeling we will be seeing the best out of our secondary for the remainder of the year.

09/06/2018 - 11:34am I totally agree with this. …

I totally agree with this.  Lots of people bitching about both calls going against Michigan.  But they looked like the correct calls to me.  Metellus led with his shoulder and inadvertently caught the ND player up high which caused rotational motion on the ND player and his helmet ended up hitting the turf hard.  That is how concussions happen.

I fault McKeon for not faking an injury.  Had he stayed down I bet a flag would've come late.  Or at the very least a nice PI make-up call or similar.

09/05/2018 - 6:16pm I don't know man, RR and…

I don't know man, RR and Hoke were 8-4 or better only twice in 7 combined seasons.  And most thought we found the holy grail with RR.  Call my gun-shy but I cringe a little at the thought of booting Harbaugh for somebody "better".

Hopefully 4 TDs and a FG because I got money on that bitch.

09/04/2018 - 9:19pm That game was one of those…

That game was one of those instances where home field advantage and good breaks went together.  ND got some breaks, mainly from Michigan taking bad penalties early on.  Then 14-0 was apparently too much to overcome.  The overcoming part is what needs to change from this point forward.  The offense needs to bail the team out every once in, umm, 10 years.

09/04/2018 - 12:20pm The sky is not falling.  I…

The sky is not falling.  I stated it Saturday night after the loss.  I think we have a special QB in Patterson.  We've got two glaring problem positions on the OL that will get better, IMO, how much better is really the question.  We have a talented defense and a great DC.  I hold out hope for a great season.  Win the first available statement game in conference and parlay that into a B1G championship.  Fuck it, why not be positive?  It causes more stress and takes so much more mental bandwidth to be negative, angry and bitter.

09/04/2018 - 11:37am I would've never expected a…

I would've never expected a Harbaugh coached team to have poor blocking at any position.  Blocking is a fundamental of the game.  It's as old school as it gets.  Harbaugh is supposed to be an old school coach cut from Bo's mold, right?  How he would allow that bullcrap onto the field is bewildering.  smh

09/04/2018 - 11:15am He did.  Probably didn't see…

He did.  Probably didn't see the timeout but then his demeanor softened after the ref said Michigan took a timeout.  But then we didn't take a timeout so fuck Kelly, I'm glad it worked out that way.  All in all I think that's a fairly typical opposing coach (except for Harbaugh, of course) response to that situation.

Brian Kelly is an ass for so many reasons beyond that small example.

09/03/2018 - 10:01pm I really liked what I saw…

I really liked what I saw from Shea and the WR's.  I think he will be good this season, likely our best QB since Henne.  He just needs to recognize extreme, inescapable duress and chuck it OOB if allowed the opportunity.  Because it seems apparent that this OL will provide Shea a bunch of those situations.  Reset at the original LOS and play again.

I am holding out hope that we will win an early statement game in B1G play.  And the team will build confidence from that and parlay it to an undefeated B1G campaign.  Just win, baby.

09/03/2018 - 9:20pm How can the son of Jon…

How can the son of Jon Runyan, Sr not be at least an adequate DL against tough competition?  Blood lines are important.  The kid is smart, from all accounts.  Has his head screwed on straight.  Good work ethic.  I guess not all champion thoroughbreds have champion offspring.
