04/19/2018 - 8:56am I didn’t

I didn’t care about RichRod not recruiting the state well. I still don’t. For the most part this site was very much a defender of RR’s recruiting. After the fact some people posters were certain that failing to recruit Michigan was part of his downfall, but I think that might be reason number 55,698 on the list.

04/19/2018 - 12:51am I’’m pretty

I’m pretty sure Zordich is doing a great job with the cornerbacks, so I don’t give a shit what some high school coach thinks. Also, Michigan isn’t like Ohio, Florida, Texas, etc. where instate recruiting yields tons of elite talent. I will take a Don Brown pick from the Northeast over the top 5 player in Michigan most years.

04/07/2018 - 2:46am What makes you

What makes you think OP is straight?

Based on your post, I’m betting you think “truck nuts” are cool and struggle to compensate for your small penis.

04/07/2018 - 2:40am Shawn Michaels

Shawn Michaels is not wrestling nor going to the UFC.

04/03/2018 - 1:41am Teske and Z

Teske and Z are absolutely starting next year. However, I am more worried than most about Z. We couldn’t really play five out this season because he is a poor shooter. Next year we won’t have a stretch five like Wagner, so we’ll only have three plausible outside shooters on offense. That’s not great for our spacing and could make for some serious scoring droughts. I’m hopeful, but still concerned. Z’s shot needs to be completely reconstructed over the offseason if he’s going to be a genuine shooting threat and that’s hard to do.

03/31/2018 - 7:38pm Oh fuck this shit

That wasn’t a goddamn foul.

03/31/2018 - 7:18pm Auto bench hurt us

We need to keep Simpson out there until he fouls out. The backups at pg kill our offense.

03/31/2018 - 6:49pm Ugly

Goddamn if we could play offense at all this would be a blowout.

03/16/2018 - 3:03am Why not more Teske

Why not give Teske more run in the second half of this thing? He was out playing Wagner.

03/15/2018 - 11:31pm Mo

Mo’s offense should show up eventually. I’m more worried about his help defense which has been awful. He’s not even looking at the ball handler on a lot of these drives. M should still win, but that’s got to improve.

02/24/2018 - 2:11pm Anybody know where I can find s replay?

Sadly, I missed this beating and would like to see it.

02/16/2018 - 8:29pm Then again

Brian thought RR was going to be awesome at Michigan, so....

02/10/2018 - 11:42pm Eh,

Better him than Cam Cameron.

02/07/2018 - 12:06am I am bit concerned about Simpson

I didn’t quite get the love for him after the Minnesota game. He made some big plays down the stretch, but he also shot horribly and couldn’t get the offense running. As the starting point guard he has to be in charge of setting the offense, and of getting the damn ball into the post when they switch on defense. Wagner could do a better job getting position, but the point guard ultimately has got to force the issue. If he can’t get the offense running, he is a big offensive liability because he can’t shoot from distance nor free throws. Teams will just play way off of him and foul him if he gets into the paint.

Pretty much the same thing tonight from him. We’ve been spoiled by good pint guard play, and now we aren’t getting it. I do think he will improve, but it might not happen this season.

02/05/2018 - 4:43pm He's probably

He's probably remembering it more closely in line with the actual data than it seems like most people on here are.  I won't say Brady wasn't good, but he wasn't great.  He was a good qb who obviously didn't reach his potential until he played in the pros. 

02/05/2018 - 4:39pm He was good

but not fantastic as some have claimed.  He was Honorable Mention All Big Ten and had some great performances.  He also barely held his starting spot and finished with a career passer efficiency rating of 134.9, which would be good for 54th in the country this year.  For some historical context his rating was 138 in 1999, which put him at17th in the country in that year.  His career number is below the career number for Devin Gardener and Drew Stanton.  There was definitely cheering in the stadium when he was benched for Henson, hell he's even talked about that in interviews.  Here are his completion percentage, yards, yards per attempt, tds, ints, and efficiency rating for 1999:

61.0, 2217, 7.5,   6, 6  138

Here are Speights numbers for 2016:  61.6, 2538, 7.7, 18, 7, 139.8.   I don't remember anyone on here saying Speight was a fantastic quarterback in 2016.  The idea that he was fantastic is just a revision of history because he is the best pro quarterback of all time.

             

 

02/04/2018 - 11:58pm Anyone who thinks that second td should be overturned is

Crazy. I can see debate on the first one, but Ertz takes four frickin steps and then dives while getting tackled. I mean, should we review it when a running back takes a screen pass 20 yards and dives into the end zone too?

02/04/2018 - 11:51pm A little pay back

A little pay back for the tuck rule bullshit call from way back. Plus, BG was a way better college player than Brady. Michigan fans have quite the tinted memory of Brady’s college career in light of his tremendous professional success. I can only imagine comments if this blog existed in when he played at Michigan.

02/03/2018 - 3:58pm Simpson

Simpson has been brutally bad, even worse than the stats show. As the pg He needs to get the he ball into the post on switches.

01/19/2018 - 12:18am You know there is a pretty good team

You know there is a pretty good team down in Tuscaloosa that you can root for. They win lots football games very frequently. Maybe check out their blogs too.

01/19/2018 - 12:10am But

But the Mania matches were MOTY material, so at least his performance didn’t suffer.

01/11/2018 - 7:17pm I dunno about Pep, but

But Drevno is the supposed OL guru who wasn’t produced a single decent line in his time here and next year’s tackle-free bunch doesn’t look likely to change that.

01/10/2018 - 1:17am Why not call a to on the last play

If I remember correctly, M had one timeout left and Matthews crossed half court with about 3 seconds on the clock. Why not call a timeout and draw up a set play? Surely it would have better odds than a running heave from way past the three point line. It’s a minor point, but I’m curious about it.

01/10/2018 - 1:12am Same here

I thought replay was a great idea and I was wrong. I don’t follow baseball, but it’s slowed football and basketball down to a crawl so the audience can enjoy (and perform!) amateur forensic analaysis. Then you get the amateur legal analysis because once youre looking at frame by frame footage you’re probably operating in a murky area of the rule book. It’s made the reffing worse because the refs have come to depend on replay fixing their mistakes (the NFL is terrible for this). It fucks up basketball because many times refs will not call a soft foul but instead give the team the ball on the inbound. That’s what happened in this game, but once you get to review you can’t go back and call the foul so Michigan got boned.

01/09/2018 - 8:59pm Also

Also the last one to lose to Toledo.

01/09/2018 - 8:56pm Yeah

Lloyd should’ve made sure he wore pants at work and wasn’t a raging idiot. Was Lloyd also supposed to coach the defense? Face it, the guy is a jackass.

01/03/2018 - 7:35pm Exactly

He could easily throw a tremendous amount of interceptions from the pistol formations. He was versatile.

01/03/2018 - 8:49am I’d wager

I’d wager PSU, for all their ignorance, realizes that them hiring a coordinator fresh off a sex scandal looks pretty bad.

01/02/2018 - 10:54pm Given that

Given that he’s being fired for sexual harassment, maybe it wasn’t just the moldy, old, “toxic ass” Michigan alumni torpedoing him at Michigan. Maybe he really was a piece of shit and people quite reasonably didn’t like him. Also, still a mediocre coach.

01/02/2018 - 4:56pm Does this mean

Does mean the blog won’t be devoting weeks and weeks to Draftgeddon? Because if a genuine Michigan football game merits a a whatever, surely a meandering walk through the depth charts of teams like Indiana as part of a fantasy draft doesn’t even merit discussion.

Always a silver lining.

01/02/2018 - 12:23am Well

The lions do seem to enjoy running backs who fumble a lot.

01/02/2018 - 12:17am If

If we are being honest, he’s a better coach than Jim.

01/01/2018 - 11:57pm Lloyd was better.

Lloyd got those comments after a Rose Bowl against an National Title contender.

01/01/2018 - 11:42pm Yep

We forget that Speight was throwing a few pick sixes every game before he got hurt. Qb play was supposed to be the biggest improvement with Harbaugh, and it was inexcusably bad this whole year.

01/01/2018 - 6:42pm I get it

I get the criticism, but his defense still works. He’s consistently putting out top level defenses. Sometimes they get burned, but even today they only gave up 26, despite 5 turnovers by the offense. I think he does well by playing the percentages even when the intuition is to tighten up.

01/01/2018 - 6:26pm Trash

The defense played poorly in the second half, but the fact remains that don brown consistently produces top ten defenses. Harbaugh and his 10 co offensive coordinators don’t. 19 points is fucking terrible and it’s on the coaches. Hand off to the tight end, two passes on 3 and 4th and one, and Peters looked like shit. Qb whisperer my ass. We’ve had bottom barrel qb play for a whole season.

01/01/2018 - 3:42pm Oh, and

Yeah 4th and 1 deep crossing route was a great call too! Your right, the coaches are great.

01/01/2018 - 3:39pm Yeah

Yeah the handoff to the tight end was fucking brilliant. I’m could have never foreseen a guy who has never taken a handoff before fumbling that. God, people will make fucking excuses for any idiocy on the board.

01/01/2018 - 3:37pm What a joke

This team is a fucking joke. Drevno is awful and Harbaugh is an idiot if he doesn’t fire him.

12/28/2017 - 10:24pm Where are

Where are all the idiots who love Mike Leach. He’s like Rich Rod but 10 times dumber with a microphone in front of his face. Maybe he should’ve worked on coaching defense instead of shooting random animals in Nee Zealand over the summer.

11/29/2017 - 10:23pm Not upset

This is pretty much what I expect from Michigan basketball. JB is a great coach that doesn’t recruit well enough to put the team into the always contender realm of teams like Duke, Arizona, UNC, etc. They should make the tourney every year and will not infrequently upset higher seeds. Asking for more than that just isn’t realistic. The NC game run was a (wonderful) outlier.

11/26/2017 - 10:22pm Hopefully

Hopefully this means they are taking the kid from Georgia. I don’t give a shit how much blow he does; win the fucking game.

11/26/2017 - 10:13pm I think this season showed

that you can’t assume the back up will be competent. Speight would have at least been that. I wouldn’t be surprised if the OL did play into his decision. They’ve gotten guys crushed this year.

11/25/2017 - 6:52pm If only

If only they hired a genius like you instead of Don Brown.

11/25/2017 - 4:07pm One of

One of the best called games I’ve seen in a long time. Seriously, it’s miraculous they scored over 10 with JOK playing qb. Miraculous. He borks run plays, he missed obvious first reads, he.....he is just awful and no amount of coaching can overcome that unless the opposition is horrible.

11/25/2017 - 3:54pm He constantly

Fields top five units. He’s the best coach on the staff by a mile.

11/25/2017 - 3:53pm Josh Metullus

Metullus looked every bit the two star sleeper today. He played terribly. Overall I’m not pissed at the defensive plan. After the half their qb had one awesome throw and then they gave up a field goal drive. I don’t count the last drive because after JOK threw the all time dumbest fucking pick in Michigan history, I gave up too.

11/24/2017 - 11:45pm If you

If you think the quality of NCAA officiating is as good as it can be with the eye, you must literally be Jim Delaney.
