11/13/2016 - 12:17am Darboh effort

Hard to judge, but I was surprised Darboh didn't lay out going for those deep balls. Maybe he didn't have a chance, but his lack of effort this season has surprised me.

11/13/2016 - 12:12am 2nd and 4

I feel like many drives had a point where we 2nd and about 4 then we thew incomplete, didn't convert on 3rd and had to punt. The run game was picking up yards, not much, but if we kept it on the ground more there we probably would have had a couple more 1st downs that would have been key.

11/13/2016 - 12:03am Running to the right?

I feel like we spent too much time running up the middle or to a short left side of the field. I think Peppers was over 1/2 of the rushes to the right.

Also surprised by lack of trickeration in the playcalling. We needed to get their line off balance, but never really changed things up.

Also surprised by no deep crossing routes, he was overthrowing the deep ball an a crossing route might help Darboh adjust.

11/12/2016 - 11:52pm Running into the kicker

The second running into the kicker seemed a questionable call to me. I felt like the punter took an extra stride or two that made me think it might be a fake and the contact was unavoidable. Afterward we dropped a lot of intensity on the kicks which I think was a mistake.

11/12/2016 - 11:46pm Peppers seemed out of his groove

Peppers is kind of a lone wolf in the defensive scheme. This is the first game where I think he seemed out of sync. I like what he adds to offense, and they needed it, but how fresh was he at the end.

11/12/2016 - 11:41pm Overconfident

I think we got too fancy, wasted short yardage situations against a line where picking up 4 on 3rd down was not a sure thing. Also, the refs did us no favors.

09/27/2016 - 10:57pm Facts are racist...

While I will agree the flyer on the left is not very constructive I was surprised how many facts are supported by data.  I was also surprised that the flyer was originally produced in 2011, well before the whole BLM movement.  Hopefully thoughtful and reasoned discussion can supersede the current climate of shouting and generalties that only seek to divide.

06/14/2016 - 9:49pm Call it an unsportsmanlike penalty

Just call an unsportsmanlike penalty, so two in a game and you are ejected.  If its really bad there is the flagrant personal foul that can eject someone with one incident.

Then have committee that can look at all the incidents to determine if 1 game suspensions need to be handed out.  If someone actually had 2 targeting incidents in a game he should get a 2 game suspension. One time incidents can still be punished, but hopefully it will be a more uniform judgement, and not one guy having to make a quick decision.

01/08/2016 - 10:09am Why does school calendar matter?

Why does the school calendar matter. I know its the NCAA and they have trouble with logic, but why isn't the limit in force for the duration of the season. Could a school adopt a schedule that adds a couple weeklong breaks to get all their athletes more practice time?

11/28/2015 - 6:15pm Execution

I actually think the block attempt was executed quite well. Chesson bailed when he needed to, an the contact was on the punters kicking leg, which is allowable. The punter being knocked over by his own teammate was probably more influential in the penalty being called than anything else.

11/27/2015 - 9:20pm 34-29 Go Blue

 

34-29 Michigan

11/19/2015 - 9:29pm Using a computer

I also find it silly that the penalty for using a computer is 5x more prision time and 2.5x the fines than the original crime itself.  He probably will end up with some  probation / community service and fines, and have to deal with the registered sex offender label.

11/18/2015 - 10:49pm 38-13 Michigan

Go Blue

11/13/2015 - 12:37am Can you have too much posbang?

The post bad gateway posbang and now this, I might be overdoing it....

11/07/2015 - 11:21pm Nebraska's last drive

Watching Nebraska's last drive made me wish we had current Rudock instead of where he was 3 weeks ago.  I don't think if would have come down to the last play.

11/07/2015 - 10:54pm Big Ten Officating at its finest

Now for more drinking and posbanging

11/07/2015 - 8:00pm I think you misunderstand

I think you misunderstand officating, consistency is apparently not one of their chief goals

Faked out the camera men too, needed to use one of the stadium cams

11/07/2015 - 5:08pm Defense doing better than the score shows

I'm not liking the score so far, but considering Rutgers 2 most successful drives were built off of penalties I think we are doing ok.  Just wish some of the holding by Rutgers would get called, gotta love big ten officials.

10/03/2015 - 7:20pm Chesson

I just want one of theose deep balls to Chesson to connect.  If we can just get a a few completions on those deep balls it will open things up tremendously.

Hopefully Ruddock has found his groove.

09/26/2015 - 2:53pm Green better outside

Green runs a lot better outside.  I don't know if it is vision or confusion, but he just slows down when going through the middle.

09/26/2015 - 2:51pm BIG

Noticed it all day, see if it continues for the conference sechedule...

12/29/2014 - 10:49pm Excellent

Now I can spend another unproductive week of work discussing the new staff, and looking forward to steady improvement (hopefully in all sports) through 2015.

12/26/2014 - 10:25am Happy Posbang

Finishing up the Christmas travel with the family. A posbang helps take the edge off.

12/24/2014 - 4:06pm Thanks Seth

Excellent write up, it's funny how your age plays a role in all of the names you connect. I feel like it has always been the Outback bowl for me.

I think there needs to be a long term commitment on these sponshorships. Like 25 years minimum, I'm kinda okay with the peach bowl as it has always to me been the Chick-fil-A peach bowl. Having fewer bowl games would help a lot too. Making the sponsorships harder to get and you could incentivise continuity.

On the macro scale it is another indictment of the corruption of money in sports. How did the Florida citrus growers ever have the money to run a bowl game. Nowadays, you big shot sports types would tell you it could never be done without these sponsors.

12/23/2014 - 2:30pm Grievance

Still no voting buttons in the android app. It really hinders my Friday posbang experience.

12/09/2014 - 6:27am Harbaugh

I am intrigued by this Harbaugh character, he seems very well qualified.

12/05/2014 - 9:56am Just what I needed

Posbang Friday, giving me the fortitude do deal with sick kids.

11/30/2014 - 9:27am Number of sports the schools offer may be a factor

As someone who grew up with private schooling I think one difference may be the number of sports teams some of the private schools field.  My school had limited athletic opportunities, and thus many top athletes who excelled in multiple sports were limited to basketball, soccer and football.  If we had swimming, lacrosse, hockey or wrestling it may have drawn some of these athletes away.

10/11/2014 - 10:36pm Win

I will take the win, hopefully the bye week can keep the improvement going.

09/29/2014 - 12:10am Get Ready

Be prepared, because I am sure Brandon has some drone based T-shirt carpet bombing planned. Of course it will be in conjunction with Coke, Dominos, and Sam Bernstein.

09/28/2014 - 10:17am please stay OT...

Hopefully he does not make it onto any of our prospective coach lists.

09/28/2014 - 10:09am Hoke or Brandon

Given Brandon's micromanaging ways I don't know how much is Hoke's stubborness or Brandon's fingers in the pie.

09/27/2014 - 11:58pm How did 11-2 happen?

I really have begun to wonder how they could go from 11-2 to looking this incompetent in such a short time. Were they ridiculously lucky, or was there some organization or work ethic that held over from RR? I am curious if no one sees what the issues or are they just ignoring them.

09/27/2014 - 11:24pm Agreed

It is amazing looking back at the past 8 years, and the decline to mediocrity or worse.  Especially with a declining Big Ten as the backdrop.  Looking back I would be gladly take a vanilla coach and a string of 8 win seasons just to see the program is competent.

09/27/2014 - 11:11pm How do things operate?

The more I hear the more I see chaos within the program, some of that is due to the staff, and some is the situation.  No one likes losing, it is demoralizing and can break down team morale / cohesion.  I also think Brandon inserting himself into the Football program is probably not helping things.  With all the chaos I can't figure out how this team operates, which leads me to wonder if the staff even knows.  What does Hoke do?  He seems a figurehead more and more, and with limited coaching staff positions he is an expensive way to fill a position.  I have no dobut he has a love for the University, but does he have the vision to lead this team, or is he being hindered by Brandon's micromanaging alpha dog persona.  I also wonder why Nuss is on the sidelines, and if he is running into conflicts with the position coaches.  I assume he knows his stuff, and if he had confidence in the staff he could sit up in the box and focus on calling plays.  Maybe he does not trust some of the position coaches beneath him?  That is probably why I'm screaming fire someone now.  Given the chaos I don't know who to fire, and that is probably a weak vote for cleaning house.

09/21/2014 - 2:40pm Support the team

Until the end of the season I think people need to stop the booing and badmouthing the players and staff.  I'm not saying ignore the failures, there will be a time to look back,  survey the season and figure out which changes need to be made.  This attitude of bitching and moaning does not help. It hinders the players and destroys their confidence.  It turns off potential recruits, and if you really want a new coach it is only going to make it harder to find someone interested in the job.  Be clear about what you are dissappointed in and your expectations are, when you have to be concise you may begin to realize there is less to bitch about than you think.

09/20/2014 - 11:55pm How much is Hoke's fault

There is so much conjecture about "Hoke causes this" or makes his coordinators do this. I want to know what really happens and who is making the calls everyone seems to dislike. I did not like the game today, but also did not feel like we were horribly RPSed. My biggest complaints are in player development and building the program (the head coach really controls these). The head coach always takes the heat, but I'm not sure he is the true problem. Call me crazy but I am more interested in sticking with Hoke and the coordinators instead starting this whole cycle over again.

That said, seeing Hoke's love for the program I would not be surprised to see him offer his resignation to Brandon, because I do think he wants the best for the program, more than his dream job.

09/20/2014 - 10:04pm Gardner's Arm

At the end of the game we needed a miracle and Morris was going big.  I feel like we have not seen that at all this season from Gardner, and as a result our opponents seem to be pulling in their coverage minimizing our passing options.  I do not know if sticking with the short passing game is a matter of strategy or Gradner's skills.  I do feel like giving Morris a chance would be a good idea, but I'm not expecting a miracle.

09/20/2014 - 8:34pm Defensive Line / Linebackers

I have been quite frustrated by the defenses inability to close off the edges or get to a scrambling QB.  We seem really slow.  I know our run defense has been great, but we just seem off when it comes to chasing someone down in the backfield.

09/20/2014 - 6:30pm Really questioning if I'm going to finish this game

Begin copious amounts of alcohol....

09/20/2014 - 6:23pm Go Bigger Please

We are doing too much short passing, they have moved the coverage up.  We need to exploit them deep.

09/20/2014 - 6:13pm Are we Mediocre or Unlucky

Watching this game I just don't know what the issue is.

I recognize the O-line is okay at best, and am beginning to think Gardner is about the same.

I also can't say the play calling has been atrocious, so I do wonder is execution the issue?
