All taken. Go Blue!

03/22/2018 - 6:16pm At Tom's Urban

I'm at Tom's Urban and have two tickets I'm looking to give away to a Michigan fan. Let me know if you are here and don't have tickets.

03/02/2018 - 8:42pm Who are the BTN Plus

Who are the BTN Plus announcers? 

02/28/2018 - 4:48pm Thank you so much for

Thank you so much for this. 

Side-note: do you happen to have the video from the UM-NoDak/UM-UMD frozen four from 2011? 

I was at the game and used to have the full games from the MGoVideo site but the old computer died and at the time I wasn't thinking about backing the videos up so I lost them and now can't find them anywhere.

Edit: 875727

Got it and downloaded it. Thank you very much!

Well for comparison, last year he projected us to go 7-5.

01/09/2014 - 12:48pm Here are the top WRs from his

Here are the top WRs from his previous stops by year.

2013 Alabama - Amari Cooper: 45 catches, 736 yards, 4 TDs

2012 Alabama - Amari Cooper: 58 catches, 999 yards, 11 TDs

2011 Washington - Jermaine Kearse: 47 catches, 699 yards, 7 TDs

2010 Washington - Jermaine Kearse: 63 catches, 1005 yards, 12 TDs

2009 Washington - Jermaine Kearse: 50 catches, 866 yards, 8 TDs

2008 Fresno State - Seyi Ajirotutu: 47 catches, 795 yards, 5 TDs

 

Also the highest % of catches of those WRs was 2010 Jermaine Kearse with 30.7% of his team's total catches. It seems Nussmeier's offenses spread the ball around a fair amount (being a one-back style coach generally has 3 WR and 1 TE on the field most of the time). The other years fluctuate from about 17% to 26%.

Expect Darboh, Chesson, Funchess and Butt to see a good number of targets their way. Unless Funchess turns into a target monster ala Gallon last year (~38% of team's total catches) the targets will probably be spread out a bit.

10/25/2013 - 3:45pm "Ben Gedeon, Jourdan Lewis,

"Ben Gedeon, Jourdan Lewis, and Graham Glasgow all saw time after having been excised (or never in) previous gameplans."

Was Graham Glasgow actually in on defense or do you mean Ryan Glasgow?

09/26/2013 - 12:52pm Dodgers

I don't even think the Dodgers will pay him that kind of money.

Their goal is to build the team through the farm system/younger players and money was just a way to bring in some talent immediately to bring the fans back.

The goal for 2B seems to be signing Cuban Alexander Guerrero and probably having Mark Ellis hold down the position until Guerrero is ready.

06/18/2013 - 3:26pm Actually BF3 is for 360 for

Actually BF3 is for 360 for me. I will be going PS4 next gen though so BF4 will be on that. 

Also I hadn't played it in forever and just kinda picked it back up to shake the rust off before BF4 comes out and am loving it all over.

 

Edit: I am on the West Coast and my game time if I play is generally around 8-9/10 pm. 

06/18/2013 - 3:10pm Xbox 360/PS3: freernnur5
Will

Xbox 360/PS3: freernnur5

Will probably be playing NCAA/BF3/The Last of Us when I have time till then next gen consoles come out. 

Don't think I will do an online dynasty for NCAA as my time to be able to play will be scattered and I don't want to hold a dynasty up.

05/06/2013 - 5:10pm I don't know if he was

I don't know if he was offered a medical hardship by USC but Jarvis Jones comes to mind as a player who transferred because he wasn't going to play again for his school because the USC doctors were uncomfortable clearing him to play again. 

04/04/2013 - 7:43pm Great news!

Great news!

04/04/2013 - 7:26pm Is this year going to have

Is this year going to have another article by Chris Brown of Smart Football? Loved the one about the defense and Mattison last year (along with all the other articles).

04/01/2013 - 9:05am When hockey made the Frozen

When hockey made the Frozen Four in St. Paul we had to show our student id to pick up the tickets. If you buy the ticket it will either be you using it or an empty seat unless you know someone who looks like you (or at least the picture on your id).

03/21/2013 - 1:32pm This was an interesting read

This was an interesting read and good stuff. My only thought is that total yardage might not be the best case to use when looking at balance and play call type might be better if that information is available (is that information easily available?).

 

I say this because a team can say run the ball few times but big breakaways could make it look like they got a ton of rushing yardage and were balanced when most of the game they ended up passing the ball.

 

Just a thought. Still was very cool to peruse the stats.

03/11/2013 - 4:28pm While some of their rational

While some of their rational fans expected this to happen a while ago they have had a couple threads that got deleted the instant the slightest hint of meltdown showed up. The mods are acting fast over there right now.

FYI Mark Stoops was the DC of FSU that went to be head coach at Kentucky. Mike Stoops is the DC at Oklahoma.

 

Edit: damn just beaten to the punch.

11/11/2012 - 11:33am The LA Coliseum was built for

The LA Coliseum was built for the Olympics originally (1932 and then later 1984) and not intended solely for football. As such the field and track is a larger area than a football field so certain sections are very far away.

I sat in one of those sections for the USC vs. Oregon game and it feels very far away. Was a really cheap seat though.

There is no key matchup for Pass offense vs. Northwestern.

11/02/2012 - 4:11pm Are you on mobile? Sometimes

Are you on mobile? Sometimes on mobile for me, whether the website or the app, videos cause the screen to go all black and I can't scroll beyond them. Is that what you are experiencing?

10/31/2012 - 12:22am No that Scout article doesn't

No that Scout article doesn't mention WR. Those I have inferred from info collected via 247Sports and ESPN. The article is VIP'd on 247Sports but it says something to the effect of Urban Meyer saying he could play offense and later on stating that Gareon is liking offense a lot.

I am not a sub on Scout so I couldn't read that article but the header and information I have gotten about the article is basically that his dad likes Michigan.

10/30/2012 - 11:59pm It says he was supposed to

It says he was supposed to call the coaches tonight and discuss it. Scout has an article where Mr. Conley says he loves Michigan and it sounds like he would like his son to stick with Michigan. 

So far I have heard nothing else of him talking to the coaches so nothing has changed yet.

 

Also of note, if he were to visit OSU, he will also visit Oregon. I actually think that Oregon is in better position than OSU because that is out near his mother (seems that for Oregon and OSU he would be playing on offense, while for us he would be playing on defense). 

10/13/2012 - 6:46pm I am gonna call Clay Matthews

I am gonna call Clay Matthews "older Jake Ryan".

09/24/2012 - 7:30pm I think the hope was that

I think the hope was that Borges throughout last year learned what he could and couldn't do with Denard and ended the season on a high note (not inluding VT) with great games against OSU and Nebraska.

With that ending and another full offseason together I am sure people expected the offense to perform as well as it did in those games, especially with most of the offense returning.

09/24/2012 - 5:31pm Edit: fixed

08/21/2012 - 6:21pm It is interesting but I have

It is interesting but I have a couple thoughts:

1. No Landry Jones in the Top 5 Pocket Passers

2. No TJ McDonald in the Top 5 Safeties

3. In his all college team, his whole defensive line is defensive ends. Not one defensive tackle.

 

Wonder why he did those, maybe oversights, maybe not.

At least it opens up my eyes to some new guys to watch for, i.e. some of the UNC players, or David Amerson for example.

07/19/2012 - 4:26pm I have found that the Read

I have found that the Read Option in the Shotgun - Normal Flex Wing formation is the closest to the "Inverted Veer" that we ran to success against OSU and Nebraska. I use it, and it is my favorite form of Read Option.

As for passing, my favorite play is Levels Divide. I get a zone killer on one side with the dual ins, and on the other side I stretch the field and both routes have options.

07/14/2012 - 5:55pm Still waiting on the OS

Still waiting on the OS rosters to start. Will be playing as UCLA as we all agreed Michigan was off limits.

Gonna be tough as I have to completely overhaul the team, especially the lines.

07/13/2012 - 4:16pm Am i the only one bothered

Am i the only one bothered that it mentions her repeatedly drinking and then the fact that she drove everyone home?

07/09/2012 - 9:37pm I didn't preorder but I used

I didn't preorder but I used the season ticket from FIFA to play it for three days. As it stands, I like it and would pick it up except for one huge bug. The game keeps freezing when I am loading my week 5 game. I have seen multiple reports of this in my dynasty.

I know I can sim, but that doesn't remove the problem and any random week could freeze, thus killing a dynasty. If they fix this, then I will buy it, but as it stands I am not going to.

07/06/2012 - 1:48pm Official meltdown is not

Official meltdown is not averted yet. This camp is as if you merged our camp and the BBQ at the Big House together.

It is also like the thing that OSU hosts, Friday Night Lights.

Recruiting will be heavily involved. We don't need to meltdown yet, but there should be concern. Florida could become a big player here and it will be interesting to see how our coaches handle this.

06/21/2012 - 6:14pm According to this article, it

According to this article, it seems the judge denied the last minute request for the son to testify:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/06/21/jerry-sandusky-trial-day-eight-use-your-common-sense.html

 

Also didn't the case go to jury deliberation this morning? Would they stop that for more evidence or is that something that is locked in now until they decide a verdict?

06/19/2012 - 4:12pm Can't wait to read the Smart

Can't wait to read the Smart Football article about Greg Mattison. I am reading the book and loving it, so I will probably love the Mattison article.

06/08/2012 - 1:04am Since you can install games

Since you can install games on the PS3 and 360 nowadays I wish they would provide two sets of rosters, where the 85 man ones exist if you install the game. 

Would alleviate so many problems, especially with recruiting. I hate having either to go after a tiny class or oversign like crazy.

06/08/2012 - 1:02am The problem is if you want to

The problem is if you want to play head to head online then you have to use the default rosters which suck.

You can however do an online dynasty with custom rosters, but make sure you or someone you know if the commish or else you might get weird rosters.

05/10/2012 - 4:27pm I would probably vote Hunwick

I would probably vote Hunwick followed by Hagelin, but I will admit that Hagelin's senior year was the first year I got hockey tickets so it was the first time I really followed so that heavily influences my decision (although I am trying to watch as many youtube clips of the other guys to get a feel for them).

05/10/2012 - 4:12pm Just a quick question,
How is

Just a quick question,

How is us failing to score on 20 minutes of PP against Cornell a con against Hunwick? Yes he deserved to go out in a better way, but the failing of the offense doesn't seem like it should fall on him.

04/22/2012 - 3:27pm Suck ass SEC

Suck ass SEC coordinator?

Kirby Smart and the defense he put on the field last year might disagree with you.

04/19/2012 - 11:18pm Doubtful as I don't see Hoke

Doubtful as I don't see Hoke pressuring someone to commit. I also remember the discussion that it seemed that Hoke told Levenberry a spot would be saved for him but we were done recruiting other linebackers.

Anyone got a stream for the Red Wings game?

04/13/2012 - 8:51am Bravo.

Bravo.

Makes me want to play the game again.

04/11/2012 - 9:57pm From what I recall the grades

From what I recall the grades and whatnot don't impact until the end of the year. So one and dones can ignore the winter semester and go pro before that even has an impact.

04/05/2012 - 1:32pm That 12-6 curve was

That 12-6 curve was absolutely filthy. Ross knew he had no chance.

I have all 4 playoff games from last year downloaded and I watched em all when we made the tournament this year.

That game still stings and I don't think it will ever go away
