I'm not so sure about that. Linemen hit a player every play. That's a commonly cited reason for why their CTE rates are highest. Also, mass x acceleration would argue that a DT/OL collision involves larger forces.

10/07/2018 - 10:55am Devin Gardner frequently…

Devin Gardner frequently deployed the whirly-bird when he first became a starter. It's exciting to see another player with the peripheral vision and athleticism to be able to do it.

10/06/2018 - 9:31pm His last pressure escape…

His last pressure escape move to extend the play was very reminiscent of Devin Gardner from 2012 and early 2013 (before Gardner had to run for his life every other play).

10/06/2018 - 9:24pm On the stuffed 4th and 1…

On the stuffed 4th and 1 play we ran behind Runyan, who got rocked back and is probably the least capable of the 5 OL to drive someone off the LOS (not incapable, just less so than the other four). Meanwhile, Onwenu and JBB flattened their guys. Short runs to the R side A and B gaps were more common after that.

09/16/2018 - 9:50am "And the offense was able to…

"And the offense was able to stay in rhythm, stay with the omentum they were creating."

 

That's our secret - the players have digested this playbook and fattened up this offense, so we can gut out a win anytime.

09/13/2018 - 6:32am Denard's first pass as a…

Denard's first pass as a starter in 2010 looked exactly like that. He turned 90 degrees, pump faked the bubble and threw to a very open Roundtree across the middle.

1. We overpursued and vacated so many rush lanes on speed rushes to try to get to a poor passer (I realize you can't just let him sit there). That did get corrected with quicker speed to power redirections, but not until a lot of damage was done.

2. ND wide receivers blocked very well, and the plays ensured they had a hat on a hat, and that their runners went to the correct side of their blocks so they picked up 10 yards instead of 3. Contrast that with our screens, which had decent blocking, but often had runs to the wrong side of their blocks.

3. Despite not coming up with the pick, I thought Hawkins looked really good. Dwumfour was Mo Hurst 2015 when he was getting moved by doubles. I saw Uche on downfield coverage on a TE at least 3 times.

Seth,

Should bands interested in being featured on MGoRadio email you directly?

Best comment this week.  We will cheer when the physical specimen Milton (who should really be a WR) uses his God-given natural athletic talent to get the ball to the heady, cerebral, scrappy Martin.

Maryland is in the B1G footprint.  Comcast has, for the most part, dropped BTN outside of the footprint.

Amen to that!  I'm surprised that more recruits don't try to include even just 1 or 2 examples of "recognition plays" where they pick up a stunt, make a block on the edge, etc.  I assume recruiting coaches must have access to much more video.

Thanks for the correction!

Very close- they went to school in Maryland. Also, it looks like it's time for some Montana satellite camps!

04/16/2018 - 3:04pm Transition D vs OREB

With both Livers and Teske having high OREB rates, do you all think we will see an increased offensive rebounding focus, or do you think we will keep up the D.E.T.R.O.I.T. (Don't Even Try Running Out in Transition) defense?

03/18/2018 - 2:51pm I like it, but "Ham" feels

I like it, but "Ham" feels like kind of a curious name for someone who is presumably Muslim.

03/16/2018 - 5:33am As well as to The Man Down

As well as to The Man Down the Hall, from the same thread:

"Game starts.  Michigan is rusty as hell as they have only played scrimmages against each other for 2 weeks and that doesn't keep the rust from hitting.  They fall behind and struggle early and through the first half.  The MGoBlog open thread is full of F-bombs and screaming at Delaney as we panic and start wailing to the world and bargaining our first born to the devil for a win."

03/15/2018 - 3:46pm Yeah, given the conflict is

Yeah, given the conflict is between two Louisiana teams, the title should read "Game between LSU and ULL gets real spicy-like."

To your point, Wolverine15: the most talented and storied players don't tend to be the best coaches. Players who had to maximize their limited talent through learning the game's intricacies do. $1 says he's a head coach somewhere in 2030.

02/02/2018 - 8:23am My guess is that the negs

My guess is that the negs come from using the term "polishing the turd" and implying that Hamilton himself is a turd, rather than his job performance being the turd.

01/18/2018 - 7:30pm No, not that Tshimanga.

No, not that Tshimanga.

01/03/2018 - 6:03pm There is precedent for a

There is precedent for a player who was physically unable to perform, but who was elected captain, with Walter Smith in the mid 90s if I recall correctly.

12/16/2017 - 3:32pm I really enjoyed seeing

I really enjoyed seeing Austin Davis' offensive work, but 5 fouls in 7 minutes does not exactly make a case for more playing time.

11/29/2017 - 12:01pm Why would a 6'6", 300 lb.

Why would a 6'6", 300 lb. player with long arms with good athleticism be a guard and not a tackle?

Safe to assume you mean DJ Wilson?

11/22/2017 - 9:19am Ace just mentioned that MAAR

Ace just mentioned that MAAR now has 4 straight games with at least 4 assists and 10 points. I would take that production from the PG spot in a heartbeat.

11/15/2017 - 8:13pm I realize that it was high

I realize that it was high school, but Ruiz was the number one rated center in the country. I'm pretty certain he will be playing center next year. Whatever the case, there is going to be a lot of potential flexibility with the interior OL.

11/05/2017 - 1:40am McCray is not a liability

McCray is not a liability when being asked to be the 6'4, 250 lb. MIKE that he is, sticking people for tackles and getting through on the delayed blitz. It's only when he's being asked to be a WILL where he becomes a problem.

10/14/2017 - 9:08pm Agreed, and Onwenu opened up

Agreed, and Onwenu opened up the hole by driving his guy 4 yards down the line. The right side of the line will come out positive in UFR and PFF, as they were moving people consistently. Yay.

09/23/2017 - 10:18pm That was Michael Dwumfour.

That was Michael Dwumfour. They both wear #50.

If I may- you mean he sounds like Michigan alum James Earl Jones, right?

Yes, and it used to be a major hub for Northwest Airlines, which merged with Delta 10 or 15 years ago. It has several international flights.

Couldn't agree more- even Ian Gold and Dhani Jones didn't move like Bush does.

FWIW, there are several fan theories that Tyrion is also secretly a Targaryen. The Mad King was apparently enamored of Tyrion's mother. If so, that might explain how he was able to bond with the dragons.

Not two RBs, but Denard and Fitz both went over 1000 yards in 2011.
