Why do I have 0 points? Ever since the new site launched my points went down to 0. Maybe I missed something? I didn't have very many points before (I'm not all that active in the comment section) so it's not all that important, but I'm curious nonetheless.

You clearly did not study Psychology in college.

I think this all the time. Then I think about how much smarter theses scientist are. Shrug.

Your right about the fact that this is blown out of proportion. Typical college sports media doing typical college sports media things. I'm glad other people can see through the BS.

However, Alabama's titles that are questionable are coming from an era where there isn't a universal, confirmed idea of what the National Championship game is. There was a good idea of what is was every year, but there wasn't a done deal, this is deinitely it every year. There is a clear cut NC game now and nobody debates it except for Frost/UCF.  IMO on a scale of 1-10 for "your not even close to national champions", UCF is 9 and Alabama's "titles" are a 6/7.

Don't get me wrong though. Frost's antics are only furthering the idea that the playoff needs to be expanded and I'm all for 6-8 team playoffs.

He started hot but teams figured him out. He's a solid scrambler but if you contain him and force him to make tough throws you win. He scratches and claws to get to a 50% completion rate and has a tendency to bolt if the pocket is collapsing. He finished the season on the bench. 

If you watch that video closely, you'll see the DB's for ND are ..... not good. They give a 8-10 yard cushion on a lot of those plays and the completed deep balls usually star a DB who has no idea where the ball is. IMO there is some reason for optimism. It seems like our defense is made to shut down QB's like Wimbush, but overconfidence has not looked good on the maize and blue as of lately.

03/23/2018 - 8:57am Both Teams

Both teams were trying to draw offensive fouls all game. Texas A&M's attempts were beyond acting. The one when Z cut off the A&M player was flat out rediculous. The refs did good by ignoring them for the most part. I think thats why the Matthews foul stands out.... they actually blew the whistle even if they shouldn't have. 

03/23/2018 - 8:54am Also

With David DeJulius backing him up. We are going to have a great team for the forseeable future. I'm pumped just thinking about it!

03/09/2018 - 9:14am Maybe but

Maybe, but he did throw back to back pick sixes in the Florida game and salvaged that one fairly well. I guess we'll never know truly what Speight's ceiling was. It will be debated on this board for years to come.

03/08/2018 - 9:13am Exactly

Don't forget about David DeJulius and Brandon Johns. DeJulius has Beilein's next star written all over him and Brandon Johns is an athletic guy who can shoot. Michigan should be sitting pretty for a while. 

 

03/08/2018 - 8:18am ahhh

Ahhh. Thanks for clearing that up. Yeah the good ol' Datamaster. That makes more sense. 

03/07/2018 - 11:45am Fire him? Yup problably

Fire him? Yup problably should. He's in a leadership role. Is he a loser though? Maybe he's struggling with a substance abuse issue and needs help. Alcoholism is a biologically explained disease. Maybe try to be a little bit considerate before you call a stranger names. 

03/07/2018 - 11:36am You'd be surprised

You'd be surprised. I'd wager 50% or more of OWI's get pulled over for dumb stuff like a headlight/brakelight out or rolling a stop sign.

03/07/2018 - 11:25am True

Also a possibility is that he claimed he was not drunk and that the PBT was inaccurate. A surprising amount of people claim that they had just used mouthwash or that they have some sort of medical condition that causes a false positive on breathalizer. Especially for morning/early afternoon DWI's.

I will never understand why people refuse a breathalyzer. It almost always results in the arresting officer getting a warrant for blood draw and the same result as a PBT. Except the Secretary of State hates when you refuse the PBT. 

03/06/2018 - 11:50am Wait a second. There's hope

Wait a second. What about our new DE Julius Welschof?

 

If he pans out I will thoroughly enjoy screaming "Juuuuliuuuuus" after each sack. 

03/06/2018 - 11:41am Here you go

03/06/2018 - 11:37am Exactly

I believe that's the most indicative statistic for good safety play. They should have problably made that a statistic already.  

03/06/2018 - 11:32am It's not just Deon.

It's not just Deon. Mike Mayock apparently has no filter either. 

 

WTF? Bubble Butt?

 

BTW I don't really care that Deon said what he did. If anything it problably helps break the sterotype (white guys are slow) in the first place.

Nebraska is shooting like trash

Field Goals 12-45, 26.7%
Free Throws 18-21, 85.7%
3-Pointers 2-11, 18.2%

The only reason UM isn't up by more is the fact that their nailing there free throws.

Let's go D!

Wagner just a few rebounds away from a double double in the first half. LETS GO!

03/02/2018 - 2:48pm Try this one

Try this one. It's working fairly well for me today.

03/02/2018 - 2:46pm Keep em comin'

Another 3 Ball! Let's go!

03/02/2018 - 11:52am Anyone

Did anyone watch the other B1G games yesterday? I was wondering if we were the only game that had whistle happy refs.

03/01/2018 - 4:56pm Let's Go!

Let's Go! D-Rob!

03/01/2018 - 4:23pm Right!?

Can we get angry Duncan to check in?

03/01/2018 - 4:21pm Great

This should be an interesting 5 minutes....

03/01/2018 - 3:57pm Let's Go!

Great start to the second half!

03/01/2018 - 3:32pm They're Shooting

They're shooting 5/9 from 3 and we're shooting 0/7, yet their only up 5 lol. I don't see this trend continuing into the second half. 

03/01/2018 - 2:37pm No!

02/16/2018 - 4:38pm ???

I genuinely dare you to convince me that Michigan loses to Maryland at home this year. 

02/16/2018 - 4:22pm WTF?

02/16/2018 - 1:38pm This

This is true. I don't understand how many fans cannot see that O-line play and QB play go hand in hand. How is an unexperienced and timid QB supposed to develop into a star when he's constantly worried about getting smashed? How is he supposed to develop poise and timing when he has no clue as to when he can safely get a throw off? Not even to mention the fact that our QB's didn't have much (if any) chemistry with our WR's yet. QB play was not the biggest issue last year. Fix the O-line and QB play will follow. My take? Even though Peters doesn't look like the next Tom Brady he would have likely been serviceable with a solid O-line. Alright, rant over.

02/09/2018 - 11:32am Tale of the tape

Your right about their offense. They return a solid QB but are taking heavy losses at OL, RB, and WR not to mention losing a stellar TE and their OL coach. I go to at least one ND game a year (don't ask why) and their stadium atmosphere is leaps and bounds below what you see at a typical UM game.

On the other hand UM returns practically everybody. I say the matchup favors us. Especially for an early on game.

02/09/2018 - 10:53am At the very least

IMO it doesn't matter why he left Ole Miss. At the very least he brings:

  1. The ablity to extend plays
  2. An accurate deep ball while flushed from the pocket
  3. The ability to run a RPO/Read option play or two that JH seemed to like about Philly and/or ran in San Fransisco.

Not to mention he's used to having a line that can't pass protect very well. I think there is at least a cause for some light optimism don't you? Perhaps strongest case for Patterson not improving UM would be the fact that he ran a much, much different offense at Ole Miss than he'll be tasked at UM. 

02/09/2018 - 10:35am Live Look at the NCAA

via GIPHY

02/09/2018 - 10:27am Great Point(s)

Right on, but also consider how Speight became the QB that he is. JH put him through the fire and Speight almost quit the team. He came out his RS-SO season as a completely different QB. I'd be surprised if JH doesn't do the same thing to Peters if he starts to fall behind in the QB competition. I'm looking for Peters to make a jump (like Speight did) or fall off the wagon completely.

02/09/2018 - 9:59am Maybe neither?

IMO McElwain is just looking for a stepping stone. If UM hires him I think he'll likely be gone in a year. Problably for a OC job at a lesser school out west, because we all know even if Drevno is out next year McElwain wouldn't be next in line for the OC/co-OC. You're right about Cameron though. I wonder if there are any other candidates being considered, because a little coaching staff stability wouldn't hurt us. 

02/09/2018 - 9:29am Pay Day Friday

02/08/2018 - 10:38am Stay Tuned

Don't forget the NCAA is the one investigating MSU. It'll likely take about 2 years before this is resolved. In the meanwhile people will forget, but if the accusations are true a hammer will eventually fall. 

02/08/2018 - 9:35am Did we

Jim at the 1:06 mark:

02/08/2018 - 9:14am Maybe or maybe not

You might be right. But it could have had something to do with the 9 players who charged with credit card fraud last year, or maybe even the fact that the coaching staff which recruited him is no longer there.

 

I'm not sure that I would want my son playing for UofF in its current state (especially under Dan Mullen and Co.), but I'd like to think that I would handle it better than his mom did. 

02/07/2018 - 3:32pm Not Fair
  1. The offense had two new coaches that attempted to change the offensive scheme
  2. Michigan was young in some vital areas such as QB and WR
  3. You listed many 2nd, 3rd, and 4th stringers

That being said, I don't think we can't just hang all the failures on "youth" and just shrug our shoulders. It's clearly a combination of problems and we'll see if Harbaugh can turn the corner in 2018/2019. 

02/07/2018 - 12:01pm My 2 cents

I try to look at the fact that Michigan had one of the youngest teams in all of FBS last year. Not to mention the fact that Michigan had a new Passing Game Coordinator and TE/OT coach. Both new hires attempted to modify schemes and that directly affected the upperclassmen's ability to thrive. 

I believe that the underclassmen will progress. Given the horrid OL and QB play last year, we were still in all of the games we lost (minus PSU). Can you logically see the OL and QB play progressing (even if just a little) and all other positions improving on their game? If so, then you should easily be able to see where someone could objectively see Michigan's Ceiling being as high as 10 wins and a B1G Championship.

02/07/2018 - 10:03am Yay!

12/18/2017 - 3:12pm It is

I live there and can confirm it. Still does half way descent, although I never particularly enjoyed their food.
