I want to see JH open up the Offense as much as the next guy but to be fair comparing 2017 passing stats (Mich behind in several games) vs 2018 (ahead in all but 3 games) is somewhat deceiving.

1) Using team's offense/defense stats in College ball as a way to compare various teams.They are playing completely different schedules.                                                                 

2) ESPN's constant yammering about the 'Playoff Race.'         

3) BB announcers who say "If (team x) cuts the lead to single digits by half 'they'll feel good about themselves."                 

 4) Punting inside your opponents 40 yard line.I'm looking at your Ferentz.                                                                           

 

5) ANNOUNCERS WHO SCREAM THE WHOLE FUCKING GAME.                                                                                     

6) People who say 'WARshington.'                                           

7) Media assholes who say "It's good for College football when ND has a good team."

Stop with the 'we got 39 points." Yes,literally correct but take a closer look.The 'standard JH offense produced 19 points.The other 20 came from 1.Hurry up late in first half (7 points) 2.Gift TD after fumbled KO and a 1 play drive where we got an RB in space!!!!! Who knew? (6 points) 3.Milton hits a late bomb to set up a meaningless TD (7 points)

Whoops....In College ball emotion often trumps stats.

Almost 50 years of betting College ball.Biggest win last year Wis (H) over Iowa the week after Iowa beat down OSU..Wis won 38-14.There aren't any stats to prove though.

Teams unaccustomed to success ,coming off a gigantic home win who then go on the road usually play poorly.All logic says bet Purdue but I think MSU wins an ugly game.I will be rooting for Purdue though.

The answer to any reasonably rational Mich football related either or question  is BEAT OHIO ST.

Mich running game hasn't been good vs decent teams since 2016 (less than 60 yards I believe vs ND for example) I agree that's a huge factor in Saturday nights game.I'm looking forward to see if the O-Lines apparent improvement is real or just a by product of weaker opponents.No doubt Wis pass def is exploitable but Mich needs to have at least a decent run game to make the passing game more effective.Need some semblance of balance.

Speaking of Harry Oliver ,there a bull shit pass interference call in front of the Michigan bench that set up the 51 yard field goal.

It was Nov 22,1969..They  came to bury Michigan,...All wrapped in Maize and Blue..The words were read ,the prayers were said and everybody cried but when they closed the coffin ,someone else was inside..Oh they came to bury Michigan but Michigan wasn't dead and when the game was over It was someone else instead..22 Michigan Wolverines put on their gloves of gray..And as Revelli played the Victors,They laid Woody Hayes away.....

05/30/2018 - 5:17pm A Banner Day

Finally got my central air fixed and now Matthews returns!!!!

05/16/2018 - 4:55pm Fullbacks

are obsolete.Just brings one more defender into the box.

05/05/2018 - 8:24pm That's

Felonious assault.Parents should sue School."Hazers" kicked out of School.

04/06/2018 - 8:45pm Poole's Shot By A Mile

10 years from now it will be the 1st thing you think of when someone mentions the 2018 season.

04/06/2018 - 1:21pm 2019 Class

May only have 1 opening unless we have current players tranfer.

04/03/2018 - 1:30pm Tired Legs???

Then why did we start so many games ice cold from 3? Three of our starters are  below average shooters-Z,Livers,Matthews...Good topic for discussion though, OP.

04/03/2018 - 1:11pm Tired Legs or Less Practice Time For Offense?

I'm not sure how much more energy is spent by playing 'tough def' as opposed to 'typical JB def."  I think less practice time on offensive skills factors in as well.Bottom line this team had only 4 shooters and all 4 were inconsistent:Mo-Maar-Duncan-Poole,rest of squad were brick layers.

04/03/2018 - 12:57pm Mo-Maar-Duncan 3 pt stats

Mo same % as last year..MAAR 37.4% this year,37,8 last year..Duncan 3 % points lower this year....Matthews & Z are poor jump shooters at this stage of their careers..Bottom line this years team was not a good jump shooting team.Defense,low # of turn overs got this team as far as it did.A fantastic example of over achieving & top shelf coaching.

04/03/2018 - 12:44am Teske

Will be the 5..Johns the back up 4 & 5.

04/02/2018 - 11:50am April 3,1989

My Nephew was born at the exact moment Rumeal Robinson made the winning FT's.My Sister's last name started with an R,her first 2 sons initials were R.R. I BEGGED her to name my new Nephew Rumeal Robinson R. She refused but I called that kid Rumeal for 2 years but the nick name never caught on.Happy Birthday "Rumeal' R. on Tuesday which I hope will be a day of celebrating a National Championship.

03/27/2018 - 10:35am Mich Haters

Out in full force..."disappointing season if they lose Saturday" (most wins in school history).."No Mich fan base" (filled MSG during BTT & pro Mich crowd in LA)...Fuck every one of you Michigan hating cock suckers..I am taking no shit from any of you jealous pricks.

03/26/2018 - 3:40pm MAAR FT's

I don't see any issue with his mechanics so I'd chalk it up to statistical randomness or just a result of mental fatigue.MAAR plays a lot of minutes, he's played in 40 games this season over a 5 month period.The 6 days off will get his FT's back on track.I'm exhausted myself after 40 games from my couch ,I'm amazed at how our guys maintain their focus.

03/25/2018 - 1:32am 15 Minutes 21 Seconds Without A Made Jump Shot

From 17:43 to 2:22 in 2nd half and sill won with Championship level D.and gritty baskets.

03/19/2018 - 8:40pm It's A Matchup Zone

Not a traditional 2-3.The answer to the OP's question is most Coaches can't teach it well enough to be consistently effective and most don't have the balls to play zone exclusively.A big part of Boheim's philosophy is no one works on Zone Offense as much as his team works on zone defense.Syr zone is similar to Tarkanian's amoeba def.

"His post game press conf.was 20 minutes of Izzo playing the martyr....come down off the Cross Tom."

03/19/2018 - 12:20pm Minor Sub Rotation Suggestion

When Wagner gets a foul before the under 16 time out bring in Teske AND Duncan (for Livers) The Z-MAAR-Matthews-Livers-Teske line up is a poor offensive group...I would also consider playing zone at times with both of our bigs against A & M who apparently don't usually shoot well..Wagner can play the 4 spot,I know JB won't do it but that line up would be great def.rebounding group & create some match up issues for A & M.This game boils down  to def. reb and Mich 3 point shooting.

03/18/2018 - 2:44am Rewatching Game Now

Z's def.was top notch,at least 2 of Gray's 3's were when Z not matched up on him and there was the 2nd half 3 in transition when Simmon's wasn't paying attention,that's 9 of Gray's 22 points.

03/18/2018 - 2:07am I Believe 2 Hands Up Means 3 Point Shot

But ref put 1 arm up on the contact then 2 hands to signal it was a 3 point attempt.I'll check with my Ref friends tomorrow.Doesn't matter but Poole was fouled.

03/18/2018 - 2:01am Whoops

Thought I was still on game recap thread.I'm delirious with joy.

Haven't seen that mentioned.

03/16/2018 - 1:31pm Is Big 10 Bad?

3 Big 10 teams have struggled against double digit seeds,ACC trounced Big 10,only 4 Tourney teams, poor non conf.performance.Most are blaming "rust" but maybe,just maybe the Big 10 isn't very good this year..Stay tuned.
