I think the captain for Zach's team (Kayvon Thibodeaux) happens to also be his HS teammate. Still pretty impressive that his peers think of him this highly.

 

 

11/08/2018 - 4:41pm He seems to be pretty…

He seems to be pretty actively tweeting all sorts of pro michigan things, and I'm sure he feels pretty good about how he is essentially worshipped by our fanbase/players now. Also, his son is a LB for MSU actually and is early on in his tenure there, so being in AA keeps him close to his kid too (even if he is in EL). 

11/08/2018 - 4:37pm I think, at least with…

I think, at least with respect to defense, I ignore defensive recruiting rankings. If Don Brown, Mattison and co. feel they are good fits for our scheme, then I'm totally content. They have earned it up until this point with metellus, bush, gil, paye, uche, hudson, kemp, etc.

Still can't believe how loaded that flanagan senior class was...essentially they started 3 players in high school that are stalwarts of the #1 defense in COLLEGE football.

Per Adam Rittenberg:

SOURCE: Notre Dame QB Ian Book is out this week against Florida State. The Athletic first reported the news, noting that Book sustained a rib injury this past week against Northwestern. A source tells me Book is expected back next week against Syracuse... (link: http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-41042921-4) espn.com/espn/now?nowId…

FSU is awful this year. Could get interesting next week if ND plays without book again against Syracuse (I think next week), who is admittedly overrated but the game is in NY. 

11/07/2018 - 7:40pm Well it is another game that…

Well it is another game that ND avoids playing. Anything can happen despite the opponent.

Just in time for rutger!

11/06/2018 - 11:12pm For some reason, I never…

For some reason, I never thought of the possibility we jump ND if we both win out. Figured the H2H would prevail. Very annoying ND is getting gifted a game against an absurdly highly ranked Syracuse. Their statistic profile is similar to Nebraska who is 56 and Syracuse is 58 per S&P.

Kind of. One loss Bama would make things dicey. Wish the winner of the West would have been ranked/quality win opportunity.

ACC is criminally overrated. SEC as well. It’s difficult for other conferences to make headway when 5 top 20 spots are clogged unfairly.

You guys hear winowich coined the term revenge tour?

11/05/2018 - 4:03pm Best Rutger.

Beat Rutger.

When does he have to decide by to early enroll?

We have so many major contributors on defense with similar recruiting profiles (dwumfour, uche, paye, gil, watson, etc.) ... it almost like don brown and co have a great understanding of what they want. Have complete faith and am excited for the future!! Go blue!!

I know their defense had some cracks before bosa went out...but his absence has cratered their defense.

I predict we will see a dual back set with Hamler and Sanders with zone read fake involving McSorley/Sanders while Hamler leaks out on a wheel route.

Interesting how mid tier big 10 teams such as Indiana (uva), Minnesota (Fresno st), and Maryland (Texas) have better non conference wins than other conferences.

 Neat idea but this seems biased towards programs that have college hockey, which is a minority.  Looking at just football and basketball we would be second behind Kentucky, surprisingly.

Few of my thoughts on defense...
- Best D-Line that we will face since ND (as many have noted), particularly from pass rush perspective. They also play quite aggressive. They will be vulnerable to counter plays and other crafty misdirection hopefully.
- Their LBs are pretty bad and probably a large reason why they gamble with their D-Line so much. 
- Their secondary plays mostly zone D per my review and doesn't seem to give up much deep. Also, they seem to be around the ball a lot and a very solid unit altogether.

Wasn’t that a 3 yard run?? Feel like it was far less impressive than Mcsorleys TD scamper.

From what I have seen before...essentially 80/20 breakdown for this type of line historically.

Oddly, his running seemed fine especially on his long TD scamper. 

10/28/2018 - 12:37pm To be fair, psu didn’t…

To be fair, psu didn’t really play a clean game either. 2 drew safeties, pick six, fumbles.

I have us by 6.

Agree here.

ESPN FPI has them #7.  Sagarin has them at #7 as well. Teamrankings.com has them at #6. Regardless, their statistical profile seems stronger than their recent eyeball test to me.

I wasn't trying to suggest it was unique to us, just thought the timing was hilarious.

Psu is such a weird team to me. They haven’t been passing the eyeball test but their advanced stats are pretty great. My rankings system has them as a ~ 6-7 point underdog to us on the road and the #8 team and us as #5.

10/25/2018 - 11:10am I feel like the emotional…

I feel like the emotional high after MSU may have harmed psu prep a little bit, so everyone has a few extra days to reset and we also benefit from seeing how Iowa attacks PSU as well.

To be fair, not totally offsetting.

Beat Bye Week.

Why is one reprimanded for pointing out something that was deemed worthy of a fine?  Needless to say... I love the fact that sparty was fined.

10/23/2018 - 3:15pm Frost. Nebraska’s offense is…

Frost. Nebraska’s offense is already quite good, except when we hamblasted them. Minnesota totally underwhelming.

10/22/2018 - 4:08pm I have no idea why we didn't…

I have no idea why we didn't take at least 3x more shots deep this game. We essentially did it twice. Once in double coverage and once was the long TD. If we bust one of them in the first half, then the complexion of the game changes entirely.

That being said, loved everything about that game!

Worked for us against MSU. I say let's do it.

It’s almost like the coaches know more about this kind of stuff than message board warriors (myself included!).

I mean he is right. Love when Ruiz gets fed up and just shoves him with one arm (and love that onwenu and runyan had his back). Classic sparty...complain about sportsmanship as it pertains to paint on the field but this conduct is not an issue to them apparently.

Iowa / PSU (-5)
Wisconsin (-6) / NW
Purdue (+2) / MSU 
 

is how I will bet the week, though the Iowa line is intriguing.

Injury wise....Black and JBB will be back most likely and ready to go. Gary is unclear but he has 2 weeks to heal now. Otherwise, we are in good shape as long as we have a healthy bye week in practice.

He is a beast. He was also super aggressive and one of the reasons we have those successful zone read keepers given he lost contain.
