seriously.  If Don Brown said that he thought about OSU every day since last year I would be pretty pleased.

yeah I am not watching this game; score or implication be damned!

I am impressed by this update.

11/16/2018 - 8:26am Eh.  I do see the first half…

Eh.  I do see the first half going that way, however the 2012 iteration of The Game tells me Urbz makes the adjustments way better than Mork here and has the talent level to keep it very competitive.  We need to punch them in the mouth early and take the crowd (and hopefully the refs, everyone who hates us) out of the game.  I see a 1997 situation where we have a few glorious plays (I guess that's like MSU this year) and then let the defense mentally take them down.  If we do not score first I see BPONE for 4 hours (i.e. where I was for the 5 hours it took to play MSU this year) until the final whistle.

It is outstanding to be a Michigan murderwolf!

tl;dr where are we with getting this [expletive] dude paid?

Like Devin, Nagurski was known mostly for throwing players into the ground, right?

11/14/2018 - 11:02am Well, we are wearing the…

Well, we are wearing the 1974 road jerseys for the remainder of the Harbaugh era.  

11/14/2018 - 10:58am No hopes/expectations here. …

No hopes/expectations here.  Frankly, I think we *need* to score first, keep them reeling, then pull away (if time has not run out).  Metellus needs an INT.  Karan needs the spirit of Biakabatuka.  As much as JH will have this team perfectly prepared a lot of stuff will need to go right.  In The Game the better team does not always win.  That's been the case since 1969 (at least).

Arguably, JH gave Shea some tape for NFL scouts last Saturday.  Let's hope Shea gets more inch perfect completions over the next two weeks!

What about the family or brother of Ron Johnson?  https://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2018/11/michigan_football_legend_ron_j.html

if you watch on mute and you grew up in the 80s you mentally hear tecmo bowl sounds for some reason.

Rob Shea and company need some credit here too.  Rutger did come to play.  

11/08/2018 - 5:23pm Whatever he is making double…

Whatever he is making double it.  Seriously.  3 straight wins against ranked opponents, 2 of which had formidable DLines.  

11/08/2018 - 2:04pm I like how this writeup…

I like how this writeup requires that I think of dangerous plays strictly in the abstract whereby I imagine a completed pass.  

11/08/2018 - 9:34am You hoarded all of the Hoke…

You hoarded all of the Hoke era Devin Gardner 98 "Legends" patch jerseys?  That's where all of them went?

 

Anyone else have a fan superstition that Devin should never have gone to 98 and stayed 12?  I never faulted the OL but rather the number change for all of his issues.  Yep.  Call me crazy.  That was the only reason.  

11/07/2018 - 5:23pm I think they need to win out…

I think they need to win out and hope that NW loses to Illinois or Minnesota.  Wiscy probably needs to lose as well.

11/07/2018 - 4:51pm I am just happy we have our…

I am just happy we have our expectations in check right now.

11/07/2018 - 4:32pm touch it in the back.

touch it in the back.

short of cloning 92 Ben Masons......yes it is.

11/05/2018 - 12:26pm I don't understand why we…

I don't understand why we are so concerned who takes the snap for our victory formation in Columbus?  

11/05/2018 - 9:09am Shea should play until the…

Shea should play until the outcome is a foregone conclusion.  That's not a given for either of our next two games.  We have a solid stable of QBs right now.  I trust Peters to game manage but not terrorize defenses like McCaffrey did vs. Wisconsin.

Not to sidetrack this discussion but...........wtf is up with Nordin?  IMO we should practice field goals in Piscataway and not two point conversions.  Dude needs to build some confidence.  Right now, my brain is going to 1973 when we could not complete a field goal to win it.  Harbaugh's guarantee game was won by a field goal.  Field goals have meant a lot in The Game for at least the last 45 years.  

11/05/2018 - 8:42am Yep.  It's a rivalry game so…

Yep.  It's a rivalry game so all I am worried about is turnovers, big plays, BPONE.  I do trust our defense and JH to already be game planning here.  tOSU has the more talented athletes, but we appear to have a mental toughness unseen since the 90s.  

What would cause me fury would be cheap, shitty ref calls that destroy drives.  Mentally, I will never move on from 2016, rather I concluded that we lost because we did not put the game away and the refs and that stupid team just hung around long enough.  2018 team just does not appear to let that happen and even if they get down they just seem like their fight is *never* over for them. 

Urbz has lost rivalry games (something the TV commentators got wrong in 2012 and I clung to since).  That  gives me hope as well as the confidence of the team right now.    

So, in conclusion, may that team rot an unending, painful loss at our hands regardless of record on Nov. 24.  

11/04/2018 - 6:38pm 1980 Andy Cannavino's…

1980 Andy Cannavino's Defense comes to mind.  I do not think they gave up a touchdown in the last 9 games of the season and (I believe) helped Bo earn his first Rose Bowl victory.

I also think Vegas rewatched the Iowa-PSU game.

Safe Travels all!  I am making the butt-->couch plant around 3:42PM.    

11/01/2018 - 4:47pm At 63, reputation and legacy…

At 63, reputation and legacy probably mean more than $$$.  We also have no idea how much he knows about offense.  We also have no idea about how Michigan landed him (sure $$$ but probably sold him on taking a good defense to the next level).  His legacy here is ironclad, he should get a fat raise, and he sacrifices his reputation if he leaves for a tire fire program with a morally bankrupt board of regents in a way crappier college town.  Frankly, the only advantage I see is that he would be able to see his Bosox at Camden Yards and tour Inner Harbor Baltimore with the wife.  It's nice, but I would never leave A2 for that.

Is the garlic in powder or minced form?

So we really are the only team in the East division that is not a dumpster fire of either ineptitude or corruption?  Debord and the 4-5 Hoosiers arguably being simply mediocre and not awful.  

10/30/2018 - 10:02am Thank you guys for what you…

Thank you guys for what you do and we are honestly glad to be back on your radar as you cover "big games" outside your preferred conference.  

I plan on watching your whole episode and am really curious about your matchup analysis.  Personally, this QB is the best we will see all year *and* he is mobile.  We shut down Lewerke who has an atypical mobility (he runs once a play is truly broken it seems) but Wimbush got some runs off of us.  Yes I know Don Brown has this team prepared but the schemes on paper do not match up well.  

As to offense, I think fans are hoping the home turf helps Shea and our coach take some shots.  PSU is a really good defense.  Their DE (I think) got defensive player of the week and is averaging 3.5 TFLs.  Stiff test.  

We love our team as you can tell.  Personally, I hope you might continue to cover us in light of some of our arrogance and opinions of Southern people.  

Imo the model is solid and predicted Wisconsin spot on here.  If this game is going our way I don't see it happening until the second half when Frames Janklin starts making decisions.  Your model likely cannot account for a coach that huffs paint thinner in the 4th quarter, does it?

10/29/2018 - 12:33pm LSU beating Bama and Georgia…

LSU beating Bama and Georgia winning the SEC championship would be how I see two SEC teams in the playoff.  ND and clemson would go.  Everyone else would not.

I'm all for CFP, but would not be salty at Rose Bowl with a championship.  

10/29/2018 - 10:16am neither has Frames Janklin. …

neither has Frames Janklin.  Frames is the new Penn State football strategist right inside the head of James Franklin (PSU head coach).  His specialties are game management, field goals, and referee communication.

10/23/2018 - 2:51pm As of now, there is a…

As of now, there is a statistical way for OU to beat higher ranked opponents in their championship games.  The committee might like that more.  There is still a lot of chaos likely.  After November 3, we will know more.  

10/22/2018 - 4:46pm Yeah.......just win.  I do…

Yeah.......just win.  I do not like rooting for non Wolverine teams........

Whoops.  I cannot read a schedule.  

10/22/2018 - 4:07pm I will be rooting for Pedo…

I will be rooting for Pedo State to eek out a victory over Iowa.  *Huge* if but on December 1 I would actually take Purdue over any B1G West team.  That was a huge win, however they lost to Eastern and Missouri (both away games).  I guess we find out more about them as a team next week in East Lansing.  I also subscribe to the idea that  we don't beat the same team twice (although if any team could do it; it might be the 2018 Wolverines atm).  Purdue, Iowa (which has a gauntlet through Nov 17) and then Northwestern.  Any team we face in Indy will be riding a huge confidence boost since the B1G West appears to be a toss up right now.

Valenti is on right now too.  Priceless.

10/22/2018 - 9:32am He's also a student athlete…

He's also a student athlete who takes exams and writes papers.  He may also have a significant other who demands time of him.  Maybe his toga did not have enough pieces of flare and his fraternity brothers shamed him mercilessly.  Let's ponder the whole spectrum of possibilities.  It's "Improvement Week" and no doubt Coach is addressing how he can personally help him.  If he still has the YIPS against Indiana I will be worried.  We need every damn point on November 24.

If Shea would have held it on 3rd and 3 we would be up by 7 and not talking about this.

Alright.  I'm done.  Read this post too many times and just yelled at a coworker for having a green lanyard exclaiming "Not this week!".  Until 3:30PM tomorrow..........

10/19/2018 - 1:27pm that's a relief.  Thank you.

that's a relief.  Thank you.

Great writeup!  I am already texting my gastrointerologist.  So when do we know the officiating crew and get the FFFF on them?

lots of things went our way in the Wisconsin game most of which involved crappy Wiscy coaching.  This weekend is truly the big one.
