thats part of it - relaying wordy west coast terminology takes time.  personnel groups also take time as michigan uses more than most teams.  there are many factors.  

even if theyre ready to go with 2-3 calls on 1st down for subsequent 2nd down play (which is often the case) they still need to relay the call from sideline to field, alter personnel, huddle and then line up, make calls, shift, etc

01/08/2019 - 11:24am I'd prefer the best possible… I'd prefer the best possible candidates - if they're Michigan guys that's great but association or degree shouldn't dominate the criteria. Enough with the recycled names simply to toss out coaches with Michigan ties. Best available candidates across the board

why do you list q johnson at LB rather than S?  hes expected to enter his first camp as a safety correct?

01/01/2019 - 10:43am He's done a great job hiring… He's done a great job hiring coaches provided they're not longtime friends like drevno and pep. He's got a pretty good feel if he sticks to best available (though they'll prob share jims overall O philosophy and won't move the needle much but that's a different story)
12/31/2018 - 3:29pm Where did this myth start… Where did this myth start that Wheatley is/was some sort of savage blocker and/or great all around TE? He's a big dude, earned early PT and was a decent player but he was more about potential
12/29/2018 - 9:55pm it prob is his fastest ever,…

it prob is his fastest ever, with bush, gary, solomon, etc.   bush covered up a ton and allowed them to do so much. 

slightly different D with gil, furbush, watson, kinnel, etc logging huge minutes.  harbaugh loves those kind of tough, smart players (and i guess brown does too) but theres little room for error in that situation

12/29/2018 - 9:43pm Not sure the specific period… Not sure the specific period that Clemson coach references with his comment but there's def some truth to it. Also true Michigan OL improved greatly. Gotta be talented and deep in the trenches to sustain success, something Michigan continues to pursue. Clemson had pros all over the roster though to go with their improved OL. Not to mention their O utilized spread elements and tempo (like most every great college O, and now many pro teams) which helped them get there. 7-8 consecutive years of taj Boyd and deshaun Watson might've helped elevate them too. Clearly Michigan has been moving in the right direction - but can harbaugh honestly self scout and reevaluate his entire operation, and (if necessary) check his ego and evolve to reach that next level? It all starts with great OL and DL play but the game evolves so why limit your team. Harbaugh is a few shifts in fundamental beliefs, style, etc from his squad matching Clemson's level. Too difficult to consistently win and reload with pro style west coast O and 20 hour work week - not impossible but why bother? Damn mobile formatting
12/29/2018 - 2:22pm they should fire pep, hes…

they should fire pep, hes not worth 1.5 mil - but its jims O.  ultimately the prehistoric tempo, communication systems, scheme, etc all trace back to harbaugh.   and unfortunately i dont envision jim changing too much

come on don - they already motioned to quads and ran the exact same draw play

these coaches are completely lost

11/24/2018 - 2:46pm thats the time pep / jim…

thats the time pep / jim dial up a slow developing PA pass with 2 options?  second and long in that situation?  lucky break on 3rd down. 

out coached and out played so far, flat out.  i feel bad for bush and some of those dudes, they didnt enter in the best position

11/24/2018 - 2:28pm they really back to this…

they really back to this where patterson doesnt keep on clear pull reads?  come on jimbo, shake it up

see if brown can earn his check and get his guys in decent positions.  DBs obviously struggling but  DL also needs to step it up 2nd half.

much better tackling, no more busts and a little pressure and theyve got a shot

11/24/2018 - 1:46pm i like watson but its not…

i like watson but its not his day - ambry should start stretching or brown needs to find another solution.

and multiple DL falling down on pass rushes?  they need to get it together and find a way to affect haskins

11/24/2018 - 1:38pm holy shit!  thats huge. …

holy shit!  thats huge.  cant settle for 3 though

11/24/2018 - 1:37pm hell of a grab, great ball -…

hell of a grab, great ball - huge 6, tough to understate the importance of that if theyre intent on coming back 2nd half

obvious PI and an absolute killer 

11/24/2018 - 1:13pm lets get ross back in there …

lets get ross back in there (like many others, ill never understand the significant reps gil continues to earn).  and now theyll need to address the watson matchups.  

stop tipping pressures only to mush a backer into the a or b gap and find a way to move haskins off his spot.

those issues much less impactful though if michigan punches one or more of those great early starting positions into the endzone

11/24/2018 - 12:59pm hit em with a screen or 2,…

hit em with a screen or 2, make them pay for the pressure and active LBs

11/24/2018 - 12:57pm D settling nicely.  still…

D settling nicely.  still gotta find ways to impact haskins back there but theyre ok after initial drive. 

O needs to take advantage of these good starting positions - weve seen osu punter pin teams deep and the field can get flipped quickly.  need to move the chains and pick up 6s when starting at 35 or 50

11/24/2018 - 12:49pm beautiful call, great toss,…

beautiful call, great toss, crushing drop.  gotta squeeze it

11/24/2018 - 12:48pm massive play.  they need 6s

massive play.  they need 6s

11/24/2018 - 12:40pm need to generate pressure up…

need to generate pressure up the middle.  making haskins even slightly uncomfortable or require him to shuffle his feet and its a different story

11/24/2018 - 12:36pm maybe but never enough calls…

maybe but never enough calls to make a difference - theres a reason so many teams hammer mesh concepts

11/24/2018 - 12:29pm ok don, youre up.  need to…

ok don, youre up.  need to call your way to a few stops here, try to let your guys settle

11/24/2018 - 12:24pm ah, thats 20 yards if…

ah, thats 20 yards if eubanks does even half his job.  

nice cut back by evans though.  gotta run the ball today

11/20/2018 - 5:52pm I'm also interested in early… I'm also interested in early enrollments. As we've seen, that jump start can be hugely beneficial. Be nice if guys like hill and smith can get started early and earn reps at S and DT. They'll likely be looking for impact players and rotation guys up front and at DB and several frosh will have every chance to earn legit roles. Particularly a guy like hill - it takes many reps to start to see and react to the game as brown expects and those extra 15 spring practices could really help get an elite athlete out there sooner than later
11/17/2018 - 8:35pm Don brown will not be… Don brown will not be pleased - he took a bunch of QB runs on the chin (mostly 3rd down) and I'm sure he wishes he could take back some calls. DL got bullied a bit in the run game. And they weren't getting home with pressure - at all. His guys didn't play great and weren't consistently put in the best spots today. Interesting test since IU did a lot of what OSU will try to do. They'll get back to work and I'm confident he'll have a great plan for OSU. Overall still a good group and there's a decent chance his guys execute his calls next week
11/17/2018 - 7:46pm Staff needs to reevaluate… Staff needs to reevaluate the supplements they're using bc the cramping issues are out of control this year
11/17/2018 - 5:24pm They really see him in… They really see him in coverage as a safety for Don Brown? The staff knows what they're doing so I'm intrigued but that's a heck of a projection
11/16/2018 - 2:58pm It was to be expected, no? … It was to be expected, no? Hinton is a very talented prospect, just not the #10 rated player nationally or wherever he started
11/06/2018 - 7:12pm It's a lot of work and… It's a lot of work and serious time commitment if your hearts not 100% in it (for whatever reason). The daily grind can be rough even for those fully bought in or hopeful of future. No clue his situation but there's plenty of reasons to transfer and various times to do so. Maybe he wants to enjoy being a student for a bit while considering his next move. Who knows

Really? It's prob a few machines for the staff, AD, known friends, etc

also need to watch where they end up - guys dont often transfer laterally to similar programs, like from michigan to psu, fsu, lsu, etc.  it happens but usually guys transfer up or down.

not commenting on any specific cases but decent # of transfers realize after a year or 2 theyre unlikely to succeed at that particular level of play.  its a huge time commitment and daily grind and can be a bitch even when youre all in...if youre not 100% invested or cant envision becoming 100% invested (for whatever reason), good luck

recently increased from 70 to 74 or 75 

10/20/2018 - 4:41pm is james hudson injured?  i…

is james hudson injured?  i thought he and mayfield were the next OTs in and i know hudson played the first few weeks.  still nice to see stueber has worked his way up the depth chart and earned the staffs trust as another OT option - obviously need those dudes to develop so warinner molding stueber in addition to hudson should be good moving forward.

just curious to see him over hudson given the trending and staffs praise and expectations of hudson

10/20/2018 - 4:26pm thats the tough, smart drive…

thats the tough, smart drive they needed (and weve been waiting for).  great play up front, confident decisions by shea, good stuff all around

10/20/2018 - 4:08pm perfect toss by patterson,…

perfect toss by patterson, nice finish by dpj.  thankfully they finally gave those guys a shot on a quicker one over the top.  tough to rely on patterson to hit slower developing action in this situation.  

if only higdon could keep his feet...

D playing up to their standard, great to see - though lewerke not exactly challenging them today
