While you are correct in your point, let’s not let this argument give too much credit to the 2016 offense was in the bottom half (69th) of total offense.

Crazy to think that Gary could’ve easily been on this Clemson Dline...

Not when it comes from a player as opposed to us fans (I’ve complained as much as anyone). Maybe Patterson/the players can actually influence philosophy. 

01/02/2019 - 9:49am I agree. The game has lost…

I agree. The game has lost most of its amateurism and the good teams are SO good that it takes a perfect storm to beat them. It also seems like the “middle class” is disappearing and it’s just the super elite followed by the “pretty goods”. I have cut down my football watching, that’s for sure. 

01/01/2019 - 7:25pm Lol, band wagon fan. If…

Lol, band wagon fan. If Michigan doesn’t with the B1G next year that will make it TWO DECADES without a conference title and one win over OSU. At what point do you go from band wagon fan to a rational person that realizes it makes no sense to financially support a lost cause ?

01/01/2019 - 3:29pm Falling apart may be an over…

Falling apart may be an over statement, but it’s really bad. We have had 4  years (3.5 to the apologists) of Harbaughs recruiting with 4 stars littered throughout the roster and nothing to show for it. The 2016 and 2018 teams were LOADED with talent and came up short. We have been patient for a decade and have not gotten anything from it. Sure, Harbaugh has only been here for 40% of that, but when he comes in touted as one of the best coaches in all of football (college and pro) and is paid like it, he should have to produce. I have committed to one  more year and if it resembles the last 2 I will be done with the season tickets that have been in the family for decades.

2018 MSU- worst offense in the big ten and playing in the rain.  Seriously, they were awful, couldn’t complete passes to wide open receivers  

2018 PSU- Hurt Mcsorley without much ability to run

2018 Wisconsin- Hornibrook is terrible and they abandoned the run despite it working  

2016 was a much better defense but I think his scheme has since been figured out and exploited without much adjustment. Recensy bias or not, these past two games happened. The first half of ND happened. He puts his defense in tough positions where if they execute perfectly, all is well, but there is such a small margin of error with it. Teams have it figured out now and I am sure we’ll see it all over again next year.

I’m not so sure Don Brown is a nice thing... 

 

Love the guy’s fire and persona but the defense never shows up when it matters. 

12/30/2018 - 8:05pm I have him four years and I…

I have him four years and I’m sticking to that. If they are good next year, great, but it still took too long to get there. Unfortunately, I see another 8-4, 9-3 season in the works. I hardly even care though, honestly. 

12/29/2018 - 11:35pm And when you look at how…

And when you look at how much wear and tear a football player takes, and how it affects them for the rest of your life, why wouldn’t you take something that helps your body recover faster ?

12/29/2018 - 11:33pm There are high profile…

There are high profile players on Michigan using PEDs, so I have been told by people that would know. Yes, I hate when people post stuff like this without names/proof. However, when I heard it it was a good way to knock me off my high horse, so maybe it will work for some people around here too. 

12/29/2018 - 8:02pm Or he’s hurt?

Or he’s hurt?

12/18/2018 - 10:44am The offense could be SO good…

The offense could be SO good if they opened it up next year. Unfortunately I do not see that happening. 

11/29/2018 - 3:40pm I was going to say the same…

I was going to say the same. Would a top flight QB want to go to Wisconsin?  Probably not, they are an offense built around running the ball.  Michigan has become the same thing.  Michigan is 106th in the country in pass attempts per game (25.9). Shockingly, this was DOWN from last year's O'Korn/Peters/Speight debacle (26.6).  I really wish Harbaugh would open things up for a change.  Hell, in 2015 we were at least 67th at 31.9/game.  I fear we are both wasting incredible WR talent (DPJ/Black/Collins) and scaring away top flight WRs and QBs.

I was honestly surprised we didn't see more frustration this year out of Patterson. We spent so much GD time running the ball against every opponent that he never got into a great rhythm.  

11/26/2018 - 2:59pm SC-  maybe I've missed it…

SC-  maybe I've missed it buried in this thread, but did have a much lower blitz rate this game than usual? I don't recall seeing 5-6 guys getting after the QB much at all.  We were already manned up on everyone, seems liked we could've rolled the dice with it some more.

Also- I was annoyed that they never tried out Ambry Thomas at the nickel- your thoughts there?

Maybe 3 zone reads all day and not one RPO? Am I wrong?

11/21/2018 - 10:08pm If you listen to Golic and…

If you listen to Golic and Wingo, Wingo was SO obnoxious about how good Duke was. He was anointing them an undefeated championship already. The duke hype train was just too much, glad they lost. 

11/06/2018 - 10:25am He reminds me of Adolphus…

He reminds me of Adolphus Washington coming out of high school. Bigger and stronger than the competition and simply overpowering and man handling the guy across from him. Honestly, I didn’t think Washington would be that great at the next level because everyone would catch up to him, but I was clearly wrong. I have similar “concerns” with Harrison, wondering if he has the quick twitch to match the power and translate, but I’m sure he’ll be great as well. 

11/06/2018 - 6:42am He is definitely getting…

He is definitely getting worse. I’m pretty sure on the DPJ touchdown he stumbled through the call which included a “passes to the guy!”  Come on, man. 

11/01/2018 - 8:30am You mean to tell me that's…

You mean to tell me that's not a picture of Roy Roundtree?

10/23/2018 - 1:46pm I will admit I was a doubter…

I will admit I was a doubter following the loss at ND. I honestly thought our OLine looked so horrid that there was no chance we could truly recover. I was also quite sure that we’d likely lose 2-4 of Wisconsin, MSU, PSU, OSU after getting our hopes up with wins over lesser teams. I am happy to say that I was way wrong and am at about 80% belief right now. If we can turn this win into a TRUE program mindset changer, lookout! If we come out strong and handle PSU like we’re capable of I think that gets us rolling too hard to be stopped, including the trip to OSU. This has turned into such a fun season and I’m excited to see what’s coming next.

Sounds like it’s time for him to focus on the pros. 

09/24/2018 - 8:23pm I really hope I’m wrong but…

I really hope I’m wrong but... do we really think we’re going 12-1? I have watched enough of these seasons to know that we’re probably looking at 2-3 more losses, unfortunately. 

 

Again, I’d LOVE to eat my words here but I think we’re forgetting about the holes in this team. 

09/21/2018 - 10:12pm Ok, then stay home. Those…

Ok, then stay home. Those who prefer a more unique and exciting experience will be at the game. 

09/16/2018 - 12:50pm I had the opposite take…

I had the opposite take after the ND game and my rational self has to stick to it. I saw us putting together a string of wins against bad teams, over inflating our confidence in the team and getting let down during our tough stretch of Wisconsin, MSU, and PSU. I hope I’m wrong but I’ve seen this too many times. I see us with 3 losses coming into Columbus, unfortunately.

He didn’t. He had a compression fracture and wore a brace.

“Spine injury “ is a lot different than “spinal cord injury”. Breaking a vertebrae is essentially like breaking any other bone in your body. Old ladies do it all the time and recover just fine. He should be 100% recovered by now with no lasting side effects.

First comparison that cane to mind was a slightly lighter Desmond Morgan. 

08/28/2018 - 7:49pm I disagree, I think the…

I disagree, I think the whites are the cleanest and best (other than homes, obviously) that we’ve ever had. I hope we never get rid of them. I thought the maize uniforms looked fine, but I would prefer to never see them again. Maybe blue pants one day? 

08/27/2018 - 1:09pm You have to watch the video…

You have to watch the video to get the context. He was saying Kinnel and Higdon are the senior captains then named all the other seniors that are leadership roles on the team.

My guess would be that he has everyone add weight that maybe their body’s aren’t meant to support. Just a guess 

08/26/2018 - 12:48pm But how hard does he hit ?

But how hard does he hit ?

08/08/2018 - 2:33pm I actually met Jay up in AA…

I actually met Jay up in AA a few weeks back. I talked to him for about 5 min and asked him about the season, he said :

  • this is the fastest, most talented, most mature defense since they've been there
  • there is a good uptick in QB talent and that is very helpful
  • they think the team can be very very good by seasons end, however they need to find a way to be good right away before heading to South Bend 
  • he was just overall very optimistic and extremely friendly.
  • Side note: he’s a lot taller than I thought. On TV he looks like he’s about 5’11- 6’0 but is more like 6’3-6’4

Nothing earth shattering but it was nice to see he was genuinely excited about the team. 

08/06/2018 - 7:19pm I am by no means a WR…

I am by no means a WR recruiting expert, but this kid seems a lot better than this post/ratings give him credit for.  He seems light/quick on his feet and plays the deep ball really well. Finds himself open a lot and Eds plays against quality opponents.   I probably sound like a homer, but I usually agree with the blogs opinion or think that its overly optimistic.  Just my two cents, but I see him being a solid contributor, maybe Roy Roundtree-esque?

Oh so they scouted him to be a future bust ? Great....

This was so incredibly needed and looks 12,000x better. I loved be stadium but thought the previous endzones looked awful and outdated.

I feel like it has to be a 2008 receiver. Did we complete a pass that season, Minnesota game aside??

Well Alabama hasn’t since color TV came around and I don’t think they’re too upset about it.

Agreed, thought he played really well. If someone else could’ve gotten going he would’ve been even better off.

He’s making a ton of money, $3.9M of which is guaranteed.

Good stuff Ace! I hope you’re starting to feel better, never realized how much content you put out until you were gone!

I’m sure this has been discussed somewhere in other threads, but are we worried about being “out of site out of mind” when it comes to seeding? We are the hot team on everyone’s mind right now but will we get passed up by teams in their conference tournaments this weekend? I hope this isn’t the case but I fear it will be.
