01/02/2019 - 8:44am This is a good opportunity…

This is a good opportunity to only play 1 TE at a time. McKeon and Eubanks can split snaps 50/50, but Michigan needs 3 WR sets as much as possible next year, probably even 4 WR sets 15-20% of the time.

12/28/2018 - 8:59am Go BLUE!! I'll be there!

Go BLUE!! I'll be there!

12/18/2018 - 7:38pm 14, 4*s in the 2 deep with a… 14, 4*s in the 2 deep with a top 3 defensive coordinator, should be a top 10 defense. And those 14 don't include guys like Uche, Paye and Metellus who are proven good players.
12/18/2018 - 7:34pm The way the OP wrote a 3…

The way the OP wrote a 3 deep makes it look a little depressing and isn't realistic. Here's a realistic 2 deep-

WDE- Hutchinson / Uche

DT- Kemp / Dwumfour

NT- Dwumfour / Jeter / Smith

SDE- Paye / Hinton

Grades- DE- A- ,   DT- B

Needs- Dwumfour to add 10 lbs, and continue to develop under Matty and become a better run defender. A healthy Villain would be a game changer

WLB- Ross / Gill

MLB- McGrone OR Anthony

Viper- Hudson / Glasgow

Grade- B+. McGrone is getting a ton of hype and was a borderline 5*. The next D. Bush? Yep

Needs- Ross and McGrone to pass Gill.

CB1- Thomas / Gray

CB2- Sims VS St. Juste

FS- Metellus / Woods OR D. Hill

SS- Hawkins / JKP

Nickel- JKP OR D. Hill

Grade- B+ ( not enough speed at safety, unless...)

Needs- Dax Hill, haha. Similar situation as 2017, all new guys but they are all good to great recruits.

This is a 10-2 defense but I think the 2019 offense has a chance to put this team over the top! Time to unleash the chains and let Patterson / DPJ / Black / Collins / Gentry and Evans go!

I think we could see a Stanford with Luck type of year or a better version of 2015 Michigan type of year offensively.

 

12/11/2018 - 12:56pm Yes, 

2015 Rudock has 3,000…

Yes, 

2015 Rudock has 3,000 and 21 TDs

2018 Higdon has 1200 and 10

2016 Darboh had 850 and 7, Chesson had 50 and 750

2016 and 2018 Butt and Gentry had 450+

12/11/2018 - 10:38am I think ideally in Harbaugh…

I think ideally in Harbaugh's offense he wants a 55/45 split pass to run with-

QB- 3,000 yards. 25 TDs R

B1- 1,200 yards 12 TDs

RB2- 600 yards 6 TDs

WR1- 60 rec. 800 yards 10TDs

WR2- 50 rec. 700 yards 7 TDs

TE1- 40 rec. 400 yards 5 TDs.

2018 can still be successful with a Peach bowl win, and getting Harrison, Keegan, and Johnson, the 3 biggest needs to finish the class, and the big time players.

We named our sons- Dezmond and Braylon, the Z because we knew we would call him Dez a lot and the Z made more sense.

I agree, probably late Dec or early Jan.

Thanks UMbig11 !

How's the 2 deep look in you opinion?what's your best guess on early departures 

10/27/2018 - 12:52pm Ok. You are probably right…

Ok. You are probably right. 11-1

10/27/2018 - 12:12pm Na, the 2017 team almost…

Na, the 2017 team almost beat their best team ever there. As players get more experience road games become less of a factor. They don't have the talent to keep up.

10/27/2018 - 12:10pm Agree with most of this, …

Agree with most of this,  but this defense will have more experience coming into the season than the 2017 team and about the same talent. That was a top 5 defense and I think the 2019 team will be top 5 too maybe even 1 or 2 again if a couple of those guys come back.

10/27/2018 - 12:07pm I got those stats from when…

I got those stats from when Harbaugh had Andrew Luck. Luck did not have 3 NFL Wrs.

10/11/2018 - 12:50pm DT- Marshall, Kemp, Paye 60…

DT- Marshall, Kemp, Paye 60/20/20

( Kemp, Paye run/ pass downs )

NT- Mone, Kemp, Jeter 60/20/20

09/30/2018 - 7:11pm With Vilain's injury issues…

With Vilain's injury issues Uche almost needs to slide down to play WDE. He needs to put on another 10-15 pounds which is very doable. 2019 depth

WDE- Paye / Uche

SDE- Hutchinson / Hinton

Viper/SLB- Hudson/ Glasgow/ Singleton 

Singleton needs a home and would make a great SLB

I meant 12-3 , my bad. Thanks 

09/09/2018 - 9:02am The offense is better at 10…

The offense is better at 10 of the 11 positions. Much better at QB, WR, and LG, with the potential of being much better at C, RG, TE, and FB.

This team was recruited to man ball, run power, and play action with guys like Bredeson, Onwenu, Mason, Ruiz, McKeon, Gentry and JBB so do it.

As this offense finds its identity and chemistry with great QB play, coaching and younger players elevating their games rapidly ( Ruiz, DPJ, Collins, McKeon , Martin, Hudson??) they will be a good to very good offense by mid season.

Man I hope not, both guys will be a huge part of next year's team.

Hughes or Stueber???

08/26/2018 - 11:27am Michigan's 3* commits are…

Michigan's 3* commits are lighting it up! With or without Tarik Black's injury Michigan needs a big WR in this class. A 6'2 plus guy, i think michigan is in the top 3 for 2 or 3 guys with the top target being Kyle Ford.

08/21/2018 - 10:18pm Wow, sorry! Haha,  I'm not…

Wow, sorry! Haha,  I'm not an insider, I've just been reading and listening to a few different sites and podcasts. I was close!

08/21/2018 - 4:43pm This is correct,  I did not…

This is correct,  I did not rank the strengths in order. If I did, I would probably go with

1. RB

2. QB

3. TE

4. G C G

5. WR

6. T

08/02/2018 - 10:02pm Michigan's o line got huge…

Michigan's o line got huge but their DTs are 285. Is that a good playing weight for DTs? 

 

Projected O line-

318 - 320 - 319 - 350 - 310. SMASH!

 

D line-

255 - 285 - 287 - 281. Seems a little small to me? Probably ok... Don Brown? DON BROWN! Mattison? MATTISON!

07/31/2018 - 10:23pm Michigan has had an…

Michigan has had an incredible chance to win the last 2 games vs osu. With Patterson at QB the past 2 years Michigan most likely goes 2-0 vs osu in that span. QB is the only thing holding Michigan back, forget LT you can work around it.

Ok, I'll give you recruit rankings, but what about NFL draft projections ...

Just bought a white 2015 Tahoe last fall and we already had a blue 2006 Tahoe so we decided we had to name them since they were both Tahoe's. The white one is HAIL and the blue one is Victor.

04/12/2018 - 8:45am My early guess-
1- Simpson /

My early guess-

1- Simpson / DD - 30 / 10

2- Poole / Matthews - 32 / 8

3- Matthews / Iggy - 22 / 18

4- Livers / Johns - 28 / 12

5- Wagner / Teske - 30 / 10

Total minutes
1. Matthews 32
2. Poole. 32
3. Wagner. 30
4. Simpson. 30
5. Livers 28
6. Iggy. 18
7. Johns. 12
8. Teske. 10
9. DD. 10

Iggy is the best incoming freshman, the highest rated, the oldest, and the most college ready. He would be a great 6th man.

The line up will obviously look much different wo Wagner around. Teske and Davis will get a lot more minutes and Michigan will have to do something to get some shooting on the court, maybe Nunez or Watson at the 2 instead of Matthews.

04/02/2018 - 10:04am 77-71 Michigan, just like I

77-71 Michigan, just like I put in my bracket. Go BLUE!!!

03/24/2018 - 8:46pm GO BLUE!!!!

GO BLUE!!!!

03/24/2018 - 8:45pm GO BLUE!
Everyone is talking

GO BLUE!

Everyone is talking about the fsu defense....the #3 defense in the country from Michigan says hi !

03/18/2018 - 9:15pm Awesome man! GO BLUE! I was

Awesome man! GO BLUE! I was more in dis-belief. I had to ask my wife, "did that really happen?!?!" Then rewind and rewatch a few times haha. Then got emotional haha

03/18/2018 - 9:08pm Can someone with more

Can someone with more knowledge on
A&M tell me how they are different than msu? I know they play 2 bigs and aren't great at 3 pt shooting, seems simular to sparty wo Bridges.

03/10/2018 - 4:44pm I'm really excited about

I'm really excited about Hudson. Very good athlete, and long. 3 different coaches raved about him last fall, and as a top 200 DL , everyone said his higher upside is at OT. Michigan could have a top 100 / 150 LT on its roster

03/10/2018 - 4:40pm 1. Ruiz - borderline 5*
2.

1. Ruiz - borderline 5*
2. Bredeson- top 50
3. Onwenu - top 100
4. 5 top 350 tackles
- Hudson
- Filiaga
- Stueber
- Mayfield
- Hayes

That seems pretty good to me..

03/05/2018 - 9:22am Doesn't the committee take

Doesn't the committee take wins away from home into big time consideration?

If so who did sparty beat away from the bres?
1. At Maryland?!?!

How about Michigan
1. At msu
2. Msu
3. Purdue
4. At Texas
5. Nebraska
6. At psu
7. At Maryland

So sparties best win away from home is Michigan's 7th best win away from home plus Michigan has the advantage in rpi, kenpom, and head to head.

03/03/2018 - 7:35am What a tear these guys have

What a tear these guys have been on, it's been fun to follow and watch. Can't wait to see some more, hopefully they start getting more tv time. Keep it up boys, Go BLUE!

Great post! It's hard to come by good, well thought out posts on a message board sometimes but this is one of them! Thanks

01/27/2018 - 8:01am Rooting for Brady, Harris,

Rooting for Brady, Harris, Branch, and Graham. 3 > 1 , so its the Patriots.

Some people just need to drink up and be happy.

01/13/2018 - 11:10am It's easy to sit here and say

It's easy to sit here and say Michigan wins because that's where my heart is, but if there was $1000 on the line I would have to say 77-69 msu

01/01/2018 - 9:57pm I think you are

I think you are underestimating Patterson and 3 top 100 WRs that won't be Fr.

01/01/2018 - 9:42pm This is why college football

This is why college football needs 8 teams.
5 - conference champs
2 - top non conference champs
1 - non power 5 school " champ "

01/01/2018 - 6:16pm 2018- Patterson ( Jr )
2019-

2018- Patterson ( Jr )
2019- Patterson ( Sr )
2020- McCaffrey ( Jr )
2021- McCaffrey ( Sr )

QB is loaded the next 4 years, thanks to Harbaugh getting Patterson.

If Michigan can find a LT ( Hudson vs Stueber) and a better O coordinator this team will be in the playoff conversation and BT title hunt the next 4 years.
