If you looked at the S&P+ for both teams in the last 6 games only, we'd be way ahead of them I bet. Granted the other games happened, but you also have to consider that one team has been pretty consistently trending up and the other down.

I struggle to imagine scenarios in which this ends well

I’m soft? Ok internet tough guy. How can I be harder like you?

If this doesn’t send a few chills up and down your spine, I don’t know what will:

”And you wonder: do I like Michigan because of the way I am, or am I the way I am because I like Michigan?”

I’m glad I am the way I am because I like Michigan, and because I hate Ohio State. 

11/17/2018 - 8:02pm Yes that too

Yes that too

Fuck Tom Allen. Fuck Indiana. I hope they lose again and miss a bowl. Headhunting cheating fucks.

Suddenly this feels like the right answer to everything from now on

This has nothing to do with Purdue in this case. Brohm played at Louisville and this is his dream job. Like Harbaugh to Michigan, except in this case it involves a trash school as opposed to Michigan. When mama calls, you gotta head home.

11/11/2018 - 1:52pm I don’t know how they will…

I don’t know how they will handle it, but my hope is the committee will treat the SECCG as a play-in game. Last year Georgia didn’t play Alabama so the committee didn’t set up a pointless rematch by including both. This year, what would be the point of having them play once and then again in a few weeks? The logic being, whoever just lost literally just got their shot at another playoff contender and lost, no point in playing it over again.

I'm hearing it's Les Miles. Yes, that Les Miles. No, it's not a good idea. 

11/08/2018 - 9:09am 6 is better because it gives…

6 is better because it gives top teams much more incentive to keep playing for a bye or a higher seed and makes late season games more meaningful. This would be enhanced if first round games were home games for 3 and 4. The goal should always be maximize importance of regular season while making sure all the top teams are in a fair playoff, IMO

11/04/2018 - 10:44am Yep. Pretty sure we started…

Yep. Pretty sure we started this when I was there around 2005 / 2006 and were in the midst of a like 8-game win streak against PSU (including the Henne to Manningham game).

Yeah, piss off Don Brown at your own risk. This defense is legendary

10/16/2018 - 12:38pm Disagree. Weather increases…

Disagree. Weather increases variance without respect to quality of play - more random events like dropped passes, fumbles, slips, etc. That has nothing to do with skill and tends to give worse teams a better chance given they need more variance in order to beat a better team. 

10/16/2018 - 12:36pm Agree with you there. He…

Agree with you there. He seems to equate loud commentary with good commentary. For my money, give me Spielman with whoever. I know he's a Buckeye but his LB instincts and training let him diagnose and explain plays on the fly better than anyone I've seen in the business.

Pretty sure it was fall break so they have a good excuse 

10/14/2018 - 12:33pm I’m a shouter on basically…

I’m a shouter on basically every play on defense during a competitive game and even I was surprised how deep in the 4th quarter the fans got really loud on 3rd down. Thought the fans showed well

And don’t tell me the atmosphere isn’t daunting when we’ve been rolling teams at home lately

10/14/2018 - 12:16am Ed Warriner is about as…

Ed Warriner is about as important a hire as Donny Brown, full stop. He’s going to make Michigan back into Michigan on offense

The jump around trolling was amazing

Love a good bludgeoning on prime time

10/10/2018 - 6:38pm I think I've read before…

I think I've read before about coaches who steal things from opposing offenses when they see things they like on tape during game-week prep. This type of thing isn't unheard-of at all

10/10/2018 - 6:36pm Ben Mason is my favorite…

Ben Mason is my favorite player on offense by a pretty wide margin. That makes me happy

Also: I love the Big Big Boys. I think people will understand what I mean when I say this offense is starting to look like Michigan again

Donated. Good luck with your recovery, brother. I have no way of understanding what you're going through but hopefully it helps even a little knowing there's a big Michigan community out there collectively rooting for you.

Hoping the team is saving up for osu!

10/07/2018 - 10:45am This is amazing:

This is amazing:

“I haven’t seen all the fullbacks, but we love our fullback.”

Laughed out loud at that one.

10/03/2018 - 8:31pm I think a good tell is how…

I think a good tell is how quickly the previous guy gets picked up by another team and in what capacity. IIRC Drevno had to scrape and scratch just to become the RB coach at USC (where he was very recently OL coach).

What is the meaning of the "Urban Legends Never Die" shirt? I get it's a play on his name, but is there some old saying about urban legends not dying? I'm not sure I get the reference

Last time I was this excited for a recruit... probably Rashan? This is huuuuge, welcome aboard buddy!

I don’t remember there ever being a rule against this

I have no real problem with Scott Frost. Now, Scott Frost’s mom, on the other hand... I can’t stand Scott Frost’s mom

I stopped reading them too. They are too long to be interesting or helpful, although I guess that’s the point of having a catch-all instead of 50 different threads

I think it rotates each year. Hard to care too much in any case given it doesn’t seem to factor into playoff committee reasoning as far as I can tell

09/13/2018 - 9:53am Interesting. I guess I just…

Interesting. I guess I just read individual comments and can't say who is posting more or less or who sounds like whom. I have no recollection of your posting history, for instance. Couldn't tell you a thing about anything you've posted in the past. 

09/13/2018 - 7:48am Wouldn’t mind a quick hook…

Wouldn’t mind a quick hook for the obvious rival trolls. There was a bunch of garbage dumped here during the Urban Meyer stuff over the summer, not sure why it was allowed but it didn’t add to the conversation.

As for the multiple account trolls, candidly I’m not sure how people notice that stuff. I’ve never paid close enough attention to syntax and style to identify two separate posters as the same person. But if someone is being an asshole generally they should be banned in any case

09/02/2018 - 1:03pm You absolutely can, and it’s…

You absolutely can, and it’s amazing we didn’t do much of it. You generally want backs and TEs and H-backs in to add extra blockers (our backs were pretty bad pass pro blockers from my first watch though) and you either leave them in to block or have them chip a DE as they go into patterns. You also want to run screens and draws to keep people honest about rush lanes, and quick hitting plays like slants and bubble screens to get the ball out quickly. You generally want to avoid slow developing plays where the QB turns his back to the defense and want to avoid empty sets.

 

I only remember one or two (poorly executed) screens, no draws, a couple bubbles (which worked nicely), and a ton of empty sets (in which i would scream at the tv as they predictably blew up). The game plan was remarkably dumb given how bad the LT obviously was, so not sure what the coaches were thinking.

09/02/2018 - 11:44am Ruminated on this overnight…

Ruminated on this overnight. I think for the most part the defense will be fine, probably still a top 10 to top 5 unit. Most of what we got got on were fluky, non-repeatable plays. The one big thing though, I think the interior of our line is a problem on passing plays. Part of the reason Wimbush was able to step up and scramble so much is because nobody was pushing the pocket in the middle. In years past a lot of those scrambles would have been Mo Hurst or Ryan Glasgow sacks. Mone and Marshall were not getting that done 

08/28/2018 - 9:47am Pass protection and wide…

Pass protection and wide receivers getting open. If those two things happen book your tickets to the Playoff semi-finals. 

08/27/2018 - 1:44pm You're suggesting you…

You're suggesting you actually can't fathom his perspective, which is weird. Feel free to disagree with Brian's take - I do - but to suggest that his opinion is completely ridiculous or without any merit is a little ridiculous, isn't it?

If recent events don't give you pause regarding your fandom... man, I don't know what to say to you.
