Halftime adjustments are huge for the offensive production of this team ... which begs the question, why receive the ball if you win the coin flip ?   If we knew what plays had a better chance of success in the 2nd half ... why not get that potential extra offensive possession in the 2nd half.  Plus there is only one chance in football to "essentially" get the ball two times back to back - score on the last possession of the 1st half, and then receive the kick to start the 2nd half.  This really isn't difficult to understand ... is it ?

Speed ?  You have to be kidding.  This is the least exciting recruiting video ... ever.  The kid must have had the flu that night.  And sorry - show me a receiver that doesn't catch with hands first, and I will show you dropped balls.  If this game was played on grass, his uniform would have been the cleanest on the team.  Maybe - someone altered the video !!!

I'm heading to East Landfill also with 3 other seasoned ticket holders !   (It really is the shittiest football stadium in the B1G)  Was there for Harbaugh's last victory there ... going with the same people, parking in the same lot and will party post game once again !!!

I think the "red zone" is a very easy fix.  Let's see ... I have a 6'8" tight end that I can split out wide with single coverage from either a LB or nickel back in a 4 wide out set.  I would guess that the defender height would be no taller than 6'0".  so, post corner jump ball should work about 80% of the time for a TD.

(Borges NEVER figured this out with Funchess at PSU ... no, no 27 for 27)  I still have nightmares about that game .. I literally watched every Michigan play on that final pathetic drive at the entrance to the stadium section ... when Borges ran it every time I ran out of the section swearing like a madman.  Funchess had single coverage and Penn State had 9 men in the box.  Sorry - gonna need therapy !

Thank you robpollard !  Waiting for someone to explain this ... I fully expect Rashan to return as soon as he can play at a high level, be it msu, psu or even Rutgers.  Dude wants to be on the field with his team.  Bosa was likely told "no football for the rest of the year", as I think he was medically evaluated yesterday.  Bosa had nothing yet to prove and wasn't coming back next season ... so he left.  Rashan is NOT "saving himself for the NFL", IMO he'll play as soon as he can.

Pretty kicks don't count more than ugly ones.  Make = good, miss = bad ... pretty simple.  Ever miss a 2 foot putt ?  If you play golf , everyone, at some time, will miss a 2 foot putt.  Shit happens.   

Nordin kicked well off grass at Northwestern, I expect him to perform well this Saturday.

When the flags were thrown, like nearly everyone else in the stadium, I was still high fiving my entire section.  When it was called an after the play penalty ... it was a WHO CARES penalty.

Brian ... great write up, as usual.  But please, a special shoutout to whoever Rawk'ed the Wisconsin "JUMP" music when the thrashing had peaked (I believe after Dylan's TD scamper - great term "scamper" LOL).  It was right there with the Chicken Dance for ND.  

Using music for sadistic purposes takes quite the skill !!!   Great job by all the fans doing the Jump Around  -  and even the Wisconsin fans ... hell, they didn't even get the JOKE !!!

for what it's worth ... in warmups Saturday he was nailing everything.  Beautiful kicks.  At Northwestern he missed more than half his kicks in warmup, then delivered nicely during the game.  It has to make a difference kicking off turf vs. natural grass - and this coming Saturday will be off grass.  I expect him to perform as he did at Northwestern.

while I agree ... the game has changed since the 1960's.  The current version gives a LB with speed an advantage today.  There are many more plays (ie - jet sweeps) that go wide than having a Jim Brown style running back carrying the load.  I'm in total agreement that Bush is speed and toughness and a pinch of "Butkus" like nastiness, and is critical to run Don Brown's scheme.

In the stadium - the noise level on the pick 6 was only 2nd to the Bench taking flight !!   It was a great game in the stadium ... total domination until garbage time.  If anyone heard Ira on the post game show ... I was like WTF Ira ??!!!

The Harbaugh podcast is a fun listen ... just more insight on a great family (though Tom Crean ??? - oh well we all have one of those in our family closet).

Just subscribed to "We Might Be Biased" which is a brand new "fan hosted" podcast ... (right now I think there's only been the introductory episode).  Fun conversational style ... enjoyed the "fan view" and stating they are not "experts".

I strongly believe this is an an ANTI-Harbaugh thing ... and Delaney is complicit with his lack of discussion.  This is illustrated by Harbaugh getting an unsportsmanlike penalty in THE Game for throwing his clipboard vs. Meyer who was on the field most of last year's game and even went out to the hashmarks during the game and received a "sideline" warning.  WTF  No need to even mention 2016 ...  and now it is game after game after game.  I screamed at the ref last week as soon as the hanky left his pocket ... which is when Shea was already in the clear 10 yards up the field.  I am certain that the entire NW bench was yelling "holding"  -  but there was NO holding, so the ref just made up a number of the player to call it on ... and that ref should come clean, or LOSE his job as a ref.

The guy sitting in front of us at the game was about to have a heart attack on every one of those 1 yard carries.  IMO, this also would have been a great time to give KH a breather ... I think Tru may have actually been able to do more than KH.  Wilson has great vision.

Also - I was at the 27 for 27 epic disaster ... which did happen to pop into my head at Evanston last Saturday.  Ugh.

Michigan is the most penalized team in the nation?  Has this EVER been the case before?  The phantom calls on the offense and getting zero holding calls against our defense is inexplicable.  If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck .... and Delaney does nothing.

Go Blue!

10/02/2018 - 8:28am The illegal formation…

The illegal formation penalty on the punt was just as phantom as the holding call.  If someone could post a picture of the "illegal" punt formation and then a picture of the punt formation after the penalty  was assessed - you cannot tell the difference.  AT MOST we had 4 players in the backfield.  The officiating is horrendous 11 penalties to 2 ??

Whoa there Section 1.8 ... I think it's time for your meds.  Holy shit - it about exposure to the largest potential target audience.  If it appears that msu vs Michigan will be a 1 loss vs 1 loss contest - it may very well be a night game (unless baseball does have a compelling matchup).  IIRC the msu game was a night game last year ... wasn't it ?

Can't fault Martinez on this ... just a reaction to catch it, then suddenly he thinks - "oh shit" and throws the ball down.  He jumped in the air from the 1 or 2 yard line, so I'm not sure he was actually in the end zone on the 2nd pass.  The only certain thing was the refs fucked it up and the booth did too.  

Also - why didn't the booth catch that ND was late snapping the ball on that FG ?  This is a no brainer - yet the booth calls out targeting on Hudson - when there wasn't even a flag ????

watch the game again ... their safety attempted to behead Grant Perry on a flanker screen (I hate that play call).  First contact was helmet to helmet.  I saw 3 targeting plays against Nebraska on the re-watch.  Note - since I'm at nearly every game, I re-watch every game we win, haha.  Fuck the other ones.

100% agree AFWolverine.   On Sunday night I was already planning the tailgate strategy for a noon kick vs Nebraska.  It is 7 to 8 great Saturdays per year as compared to 260 work days.  These Saturdays fly by so quickly.  And I am traveling 2.5 hours one way for all home games ... and we went to ND, and will be going to NW and msu this year.

The score boards now show a media timeout clock.  So in the stadium you know how long the break is ... a FULL media break is 2:20.  I find this very useful.  They did this at Notre Dame too, so maybe this is done at all stadiums ?   Are there too many breaks ... absolutely.  But I'm at the game for football, so it is just part of the game now ... and unfortunately the bad calls are too.

Just holy shit ijohnb.   It was a just a really bad game ?  How about the recent Tigers game they lost 15 - 0 - that was a BAD game.  But it is sports - there is no way to predict what may happen - hence we go.  Michigan scores points on its last 6 straight possessions and I see fans complaining it was too hot ?  WTF .. then stay home.  I have season tickets because to me Michigan football games are a weekend off from "life".  Football Saturday's comprise pre and post game tailgating ... and we have made great relationships with other tailgaters around us.  The football game is always the unknown aspect, but if you attend a game in which Michigan is a 32 point favorite and then say it was a bad game ... then you only have yourself to blame, not the football game or the heat.

Go Blue!

I don't recall anything close to the stadium at all.  Bring the wheeled cooler and find a Michigan tailgate in session if you want anything close to the stadium.  BTW - can we really call where they play the game a stadium ?

ahh yes .... remember the M00N game.

Anyway ... we have tailgated in lots on campus just off the lake.  Just regular parking lots, but the crowd was fun (there will be lots of M fans).  From there you can take a short walk and catch a free shuttle to the stadium.  After the game we walked back ... maybe 1-2 miles, but it was very easy and worth it vs waiting to get a shuttle back to campus.   Will be there again this year!
