02/19/2018 - 7:07pm Can we make Warinner

Can we make Warinner offensive line coach please? I remember everyone thought Ohio State was going to have a tire fire of an OL the year Urban got there but they ended up being great and it looks like he was their OL coach.

01/01/2018 - 7:01pm I keep saying "wow that was a

I keep saying "wow that was a beautifuly designed play" over and over and over. Can't remember the last last time I said that watching the Michigan offense. 

 

Maybe those sprint out throw back screen's Borges ran from time to time.

Yea and pancaked I think Kemp got Jeter on skates.

11/28/2017 - 10:23pm That's unfortunate. I rember

That's unfortunate. I rember the few oklahoma drill clips from early spring practice and thinking he looked very impressive.

04/12/2017 - 1:50am Ah I still vividly remember

Ah I still vividly remember watching Michigan kill Minnesota in 97 in Grand Rapids. We had the Minnesota goalie frazzled pretty good, a couple friends and I (annoying little kids heckling him unmercifully all game). Then watching Michigan beat ND at Yost the next year with my dad. That was a geat game and great year for Michigan sports.

Didn't follow close since then but those were good times.

So 73 is JaRaymond Hall? He looked pretty good although a little small.

Some I highly recommend:

Pocket Casts - podcasts

Weather Timeline - beautiful material design weather app/widget

Solid Explorer - File manager

Google keep - lists, reminders, random notes etc.

Google Rewards - little surveys for free play store credit. I get probably 30 cents a day which adds up.

01/22/2015 - 4:57am Also more Steve Hutchinsons

Also more Steve Hutchinsons please!

 

Good God watching those ohio state game highlights i realize we haven had a guy that can blast open holes like that since he left. Although to be fair i guess 7 time NFL all pros are pretty rare. lol

10/12/2014 - 1:55am Even Manning or Brady would

Even Manning or Brady would make a lot of idiotic plays if they were getting instantly crushed from all sides every other drop back for 2+ years.

Could have been really fun to watch him and he could have been a great one imo if not for about the worst set of circumstances a QB could have (coaching changes, dumbfounding offensive concepts, atrocious line play and running game, no gamebreakers around him besides a couple games with Denard at RB, injuries, position change)

09/11/2014 - 12:37pm He had the best run of any of

He had the best run of any of our RB last year against Central where he found a tiny hole and powered into the endzone. Always wondered why coaches kept feeding Toussaint 25 times a game and nobody else when he was giving us nothing and you had Rawls who had a couple really slick runs the first game then got nothing after that.

07/22/2014 - 10:07pm Man all that pressure from

Man all that pressure from the front 4 and the perfectly read plays from LB and S in that video are making me drool.

Funny seeing Mattison coaching for ND too. lol

06/18/2014 - 10:59pm Now that was one fast RB!

Now that was one fast RB!

04/22/2014 - 9:51pm The 2010 defense was terrible

The 2010 defense was terrible game in and game out. Last years O was pretty good for chunks of the year. I'm not sure what my point is I'm just hoping a lot of guys in both units can show some kind of improvement year to year and the coaches can put them in positions to take advantage. Defense needs to get some stops when it counts at the end of halfs and games, offense needs to block and be smart in the red zone, coaches need to not look like deers in headlights and figure out how to improve and get the most out of the players.

04/14/2014 - 10:14pm can't be any worse than it

can't be any worse than it was last year

 

Sadly we all said that before last year too.

03/07/2014 - 10:13pm I'm really upset that coaches

I'm really upset that coaches and other people actually think Gardner is on a short leash. Dude is easilly  the most dynamic playmaker we have and was our whole offense last year, not to mention a warrior.  Yea he had 11 picks but he also had 30+ TDs and was second in the Big Ten in pass efficiencey despite being saddled with god awful protection, a running game that was killing drives on first down and screwy scemes virtually every week. We put in Morris . . . ugh, I don't even want to think about it.

02/03/2014 - 2:54pm If we couldn't cobble

If we couldn't cobble together an at least servicable line last year with two solid senior tackles then I can't even imagine how bad it could be next year.

01/14/2014 - 9:05pm How many front end of 1&1s

How many front end of 1&1s has Nik missed this year. Seems like a ton.

12/07/2013 - 11:55pm I am very envious of States

I am very envious of States D. Actually gets stops at the end of games.

12/02/2013 - 4:44pm Yay for Gardner. But fuck we

Yay for Gardner. But I fear we are in for yet another "rebuilding year" (where we probably regress again) next year with Funk, Borges, Jackson and co.

 

This year was really the year things were set up for us to take a step forward and we just seemed poorly prepared in virtually every game. Lack of improvement as the season went on in any area, simple mental errors and just lack of awareness from both players and coaches. It was a hard thing to watch and be optimistic about anything going forward.

11/17/2013 - 12:07am I love Fitz and have been a

I love Fitz and have been a big supporter, 2011 he looked like the best back we have had in a long while. But honestly, the last 2 years he hasn't really given us anything. I don't know if it was the suspention did some mental stuff or some injuries but he hasn't looked the same even taking into account  the terrible O lines we have had.

It was kinda driving me mad that the coaches have been using him exclusively this year at runningback. I think he was second in the big ten in carries before this week and had 5 times as many carries as all our other running backs combined. Especially strange considering he is coming off a major injury, has taken a beating and doesn't really fit what we are trying to do with the zone stretch.

We really should have been doing a committee all year, I think it would have really helped the running game in a few of those games. I mean has Rawls been hurt? He looked like our best back the first game. Were the freshmen that unprepared? They seemed fine today.

11/16/2013 - 6:17pm Al Borges playcalling in goal

Al Borges playcalling in goal to go from the 9 or 10

 

1. Long drawn out stretch run for -2 yeards

2. Play action pass that fools nobody to recievers running  routes short of the end zone

 

Been like that for 3 years now

11/16/2013 - 6:05pm My God. No wonder we can't

My God. No wonder we can't score with this goal to go playcalling.

11/16/2013 - 5:33pm Do you really want to see

Do you really want to see Morris getting killed and stumbling over his own feet out there?

11/16/2013 - 5:03pm You are kidding right?

You are kidding right? Playcalling is maddening, especially when we were goal to go.

11/16/2013 - 4:41pm Gardner is our best offensive

Gardner is our best offensive player by far. But he is definately shell shocked.

11/16/2013 - 3:53pm 2nd and goal from the 10 play

2nd and goal from the 10 play action..... why

11/16/2013 - 1:33pm Sadly they will be a lot

Sadly they will be a lot better on the line then we are next year. OSU had a O line that everyone thought was going to be bad last year and they did great. Urban knows how to coach em up.

11/09/2013 - 6:44pm We have looked listless and

We have looked listless and sloppy in every single game this year and in most apects of the team are getting worse and worse. I think that says something about the coaching. The just look lost.

11/02/2013 - 7:12pm I really thought this was the

I really thought this was the year we would become a really dominant defense but instead we have taken a major step back. Young guys don't seem to be developing like you would expect and nobody has stepped up as a playmaker.

Heck a lot of teams have had close to their best points or yard output of the year against us.

11/02/2013 - 7:08pm -Why is Toussaint still

-Why is Toussaint still getting 100% of the snaps? He gives us nothing and is a liability blocking.

-O-line gets dumber and dumber, worse and worse every year. Changes need to be made now.

11/02/2013 - 6:08pm Play action with Gardner

Play action with Gardner turning his back to the defense on 2nd and 15 is always smart . . .

10/26/2013 - 2:20pm Still blows my mind we

Still blows my mind we almoast lost to Connecticut. They are a truly terrible team.

10/19/2013 - 7:50pm On the bright side at least

On the bright side at least he's in position. Needs to stop inexplicably aligator arming and get those ints.

10/19/2013 - 6:45pm Most unprepared I have ever

Most unprepared I have ever seen a defense. Can't even stop 1 freaking play.

10/18/2013 - 8:36pm Jest get your best guys on

Just get your best guys on the field be it tackles playing guard, true freshmen, walk-ons whatever. But coaches also need to give them help by keeping the defense honest and not getting in in 2nd and 12s and 3rd and 9s with crappy no win plays.

10/18/2013 - 12:03am At first Kalis was mostly

At first Kalis was mostly just being really dumb but now he is being dumb and getting pushed around. Really shocked how bad he has been this year.

10/14/2013 - 12:47pm I'm shocked we are that high

I'm shocked we are that high in rushing. Must be Gardner scrambling yards skewing the numbers.

And yea Indiana's running backs gashed Penn State for about 6 or 7 yards a carry where as we got swolowed up in the backfield about 30 or so times on zone stretch runs.

10/12/2013 - 9:41pm Game management was beyond

Game management was beyond atrocious. The whole team is just shockingly bad and sloppy in a three sides of the game and it's been pretty clear all year.

10/01/2013 - 5:48pm Probbly should have happened

Probbly should have happened after ND, would have been nice to have a couple games before Big Ten. Although Kalis might be just as much or more of a worry for me as Miller based on what I have seen.

09/28/2013 - 8:19pm I liked what we saw of

I liked what we saw of Stribling the first game. Seems like he has that swagger and aggressiveness of a bonified difference maker. Suprised he hasn't seen muh action since then. The rest of the nicklebacks, especially Avery and Lewis, seem like they have kinda struggled on the outside and haven't been making any plays.

09/25/2013 - 2:06pm I have resigned to the fact

I have resigned to the fact after 4 games of atrocious blocking all around that the coaches won't even try anything different and we will continue to lead the nation in 2nd and 12s. Gardner will continue taking lots of hits in the pocket, running for his life making mistakes trying to pick up 3rd and longs. :(

09/22/2013 - 11:41am I've said it every week but

I've said it every week but it seems like our linemen have terrible spatial awareness and the last two weeks have just straight up sucked blocking one on one. Even Lewan and Schofield have been getting blown by a few times a game. It's maddening that they haven't given some of the other guys like Bryant, Braden, Burzynski etc any play.

 

I would have thought they would have made some changes after they looked so bad in the first game but here we are 3 games later and still no changes. Honestly Bryant looked like our best linemen when he got in against Central. He really had the dominant strength and agressiveness our other linemen don't have and wasn't missing blocks and having blatant mental errors every other play like Glasgow and especially Kalis and Miller are doing left and right. Also doesn't help our Fullbacks and TEs are lost more times than not.

09/21/2013 - 9:51pm Sad thing is I don't know

Sad thing is I don't know what we can do to win. Offense can't even complete a pass or get more than one yard running, defense is getting gashed left and right, special teams is a disaster etc. etc.

 

We just don't have the ability to do anything right. Uconn looks like the more talented team.

09/21/2013 - 9:36pm Bunch of losers. We are a

Bunch of losers. We are a terrible team in every way.

09/21/2013 - 9:26pm I don't know what to say. We

I don't know what to say. We are just completely inept in every fecet of the game. No big plays, mistakes all over, playing scared.

09/21/2013 - 9:20pm And now Avery getting burned.

And now Avery getting burned. Great

09/21/2013 - 9:15pm 3 man rush from a team that

3 man rush from a team that has zero sacks coming into this game and we can't block them...

09/21/2013 - 8:53pm Worst Oline in the country?

Worst Oline in the country? They are complete dog shit.

09/17/2013 - 5:54pm Seems like the same problem

Seems like the same problem we have had for a long time on the Oline. Guys not recognizing defenders that are clearly going to be a problem and either completely ignoring or not helping long enough before moving to the second level.

 

More of a spacial awareness issue than a physical one.

09/14/2013 - 8:55pm So Purdue doesn't seem to ba

So Purdue doesn't seem to ba having much trouble getting pressure with 4 against ND....
