12/12/2018 - 1:29pm Frank Gore's worst stretch…

Frank Gore's worst stretch of pass receptions in his career was under Harbaugh in San Francisco.

Four years prior to Harbaugh in San Francisco: 196 catches
Four years with Harbaugh in San Francisco: 72 catches
Four years post-Harbaugh in SF/IND/MIA: 113 catches

Michigan also should have used Ty Isaac as a receiver out of the backfield, but they didn't do much of that at Michigan, either.

12/12/2018 - 1:22pm Justin Herbert hasn't…

Justin Herbert hasn't declared for the draft, so I don't think so.

12/12/2018 - 12:03pm Wow, thank you for telling…

Wow, thank you for telling me what his position is and that he wasn't a rush end. I'm so glad someone around here can comprehend, ya know, this.

If 5.5 sacks (maximum) is the expectation for the Anchor position, then I expect Gary to get drafted right around pick #74 in the 3rd round, which is exactly where Chris Wormley was drafted after producing 5.5 sacks playing the Anchor position in 2016.

12/12/2018 - 11:27am Yeah, but Clowney had the…

Yeah, but Clowney had the stats (13 sacks) as a sophomore, so you knew he was capable of elite production. Gary had 5.5 in his best year, when he had Winovich on the other side and Mo Hurst rushing up the middle.

Prozach.

I fixed it for you.

12/11/2018 - 10:43pm Hill committed to Michigan…

Hill committed to Michigan three months ago. So your scenario presumes that three months ago or more, Harrison (an Ohioan) told Hill (an Oklahoman) that he would be committing to Michigan, which convinced Hill to commit in the first place. And now three months later, these two guys from half a country away are so tight that Harrison tells Hill his change of heart, so Hill flips to Alabama and Harrison will go to Ohio State, even though Hill has an OSU offer and Harrison has an Alabama offer.

It's...kinda laughable.

12/11/2018 - 10:16pm I initially thought this…

I initially thought this said "I hope you get a new wombat," which would be an even better gift.

12/11/2018 - 10:13pm This is the way I approach…

This is the way I approach all recruitments. It's the way to go.

12/11/2018 - 10:13pm A high schooler is…

A high schooler is announcing where he is going to college.

And somewhere a random grown man waits for the announcement, thinking, "I am scared."

12/11/2018 - 5:19pm I'm confused. Is that…

I'm confused. Is that supposed to be a list of Harbaugh players? If so, then Funchess never played for Harbaugh. Why wouldn't it include Jabrill Peppers? Maurice Hurst, Jr.? Ben Gedeon?

12/11/2018 - 3:13pm It's only the Big Ten East.

It's only the Big Ten East.

Iowa has 25 and Wisconsin has 24, for example.

12/11/2018 - 2:44pm Maryland and Indiana ought…

Maryland and Indiana ought to be ashamed of themselves for having fewer players in the NFL than Rutger.

12/11/2018 - 1:00pm How do you know nobody has…

How do you know nobody has attempted to poach him?

And I don't want to be redundant, but there's absolutely zero proof that Jay Harbaugh is a worse coach than Tyrone Wheatley, Sr. In fact, there might be evidence that the opposite is true.

12/11/2018 - 10:50am Totally unqualified? He was…

Totally unqualified? He was a quality control guy for three years in the NFL, and he was brought in to coach college tight ends, not coordinate the offense or defense.

Meanwhile, Caden Kolesar has offers from a few MAC programs and that's it.

One guy was on the fringe level of the most elite football league in the country, and another guy was on the FBS/FCS fringes and is moving up.

12/10/2018 - 3:10pm Usually they don't that…

Usually they don't that within a single game. They'll do that with a backup lineman, who will wear an eligible jersey number throughout that particular game. IIRC, we did that with Tom Strobel a couple years ago.

12/10/2018 - 3:09pm In college you must a) wear…

In college you must a) wear an eligible number (1-49, 80-99) AND b) line up in the backfield or on the end of the line of scrimmage. So your number matters, and so does your alignment on the field.

12/10/2018 - 3:01pm Linemen are ineligible to…

Linemen are ineligible to catch forward passes in college football. There's no such thing as "reporting as eligible." No chance for Bushell-Beatty unless a defender touches the ball first (like Jareth Glanda in Sugar Bowl vs. Virginia Tech) or unless it's a lateral.

12/10/2018 - 12:55pm Yeah. Michigan's program had…

Yeah. Michigan's program had Long ahead of Hill. But I guess it's nice to have two of those Dudes.

12/10/2018 - 11:14am You must have missed the…

You must have missed the practice film of Peppers pulling up lame in the bowl game prep...

12/10/2018 - 9:13am Maybe we just lost the…

Maybe we just lost the commitment of Hill because Alabama is really, really, really good and undefeated and winning championships every other year. It's not like Hill flipped to Oklahoma State or Purdue or UNC. He flipped to the 13-0 likely national champions.

12/10/2018 - 9:09am Lots of people have this…

Lots of people have this take about Harrison, including me. He's a great athlete who is just a good football player right now.

12/10/2018 - 9:07am Barely ahead? 10-3 is…

Barely ahead? 10-3 is notably better than 8-5.

12/10/2018 - 9:05am We also might be worse with…

We also might be worse with Pep's replacement.

12/09/2018 - 6:26am A+ post.

A+ post.

12/09/2018 - 6:25am Considering the only…

Considering the only uncommitted prospect visiting is Akporoghene...I don't think so.

12/08/2018 - 9:19am I disagree with this. I'm…

I disagree with this. I'm not saying that he couldn't end up at guard down the road, but I think he also has the ability to play tackle. Of course, this is backed up by evidence that two unlikely candidates started at tackle all year for Michigan (Runyan, Bushell-Beatty). Runyan is the wrong body type, and a lot of people expected Bushell-Beatty to get passed up.

Akporoghene is a project either way, but with skinny legs like he has, those guys usually end up on the outside. It's rare to see Big Ten offensive guards who don't have thick legs and are top-heavy.

12/08/2018 - 9:15am I think the chances are slim…

I think the chances are slim, though the fact that he's taking an official visit obviously means something. He has a lot of connections in Tennessee, whereas Michigan is basically an unknown except for the fact that his teammate (D.J. Turner II) is committed.

12/08/2018 - 9:07am Yep. Thanks.

Yep. Thanks.

12/08/2018 - 9:06am Yep. That comes straight…

Yep. That comes straight from the head coach.

12/08/2018 - 9:05am I don't know if the "until"…

I don't know if the "until" portion of that plan is necessary. You should be taking 4-5 every year, regardless.

12/08/2018 - 9:04am They're not really…

They're not really recruiting anyone locally in the 2019 class at this point.

12/07/2018 - 8:36am It would help more if the …

It would help more if the "MGoBoard" page sorted itself by most recent comments. Crappy topics would sink down until they were no longer visible, and active topics would remain at/near the top. Since the MGoBoard page is just chronological (and there's no way to see which comments are new), the board is a lot less useful than it used to be.

12/06/2018 - 8:02pm Okay, cool. Hook 'em.

Okay, cool. Hook 'em.

Dang, that's some sleeper cell food poisoning.

Those trips were canceled, and they're just all going to meet at the Jackson State Penitentiary.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad. 

12/06/2018 - 11:09am I'm not a fan of this. I…

I'm not a fan of this. I like the occasional game against a directional in-state school. I also think you get chances to shine in non-conference games that you wouldn't get if you were always playing Power 5 teams. Carlos Brown's 90-yard run against EMU, Donovan Peoples-Jones's big days (receiving against SMU, punt returning against Air Force, etc.) probably wouldn't have happened in your scenario, etc.

12/06/2018 - 11:02am I can understand not winning…

I can understand not winning in 1997. Our football team sucked that year.

12/05/2018 - 2:59pm Agreed. Robinson is a good…

Agreed. Robinson is a good player, but Moore is electric. I don't think Robinson will be THAT good in college.

12/05/2018 - 12:51pm 1. Was the hiring really…

1. Was the hiring really done that fast? Some people have implied that this was basically the agreement since the beginning of the season, but they didn't want to announce it until the year was over. In that case (or even if not), administration has probably had their eye on Day and/or has been talking to him about the succession for the last several months.

2. There is a theory that you hire from within when things are going well, and you hire from without when things aren't going well. Schembechler turned into Moeller turned into Carr, because things were going well that whole time. People were displeased with the direction of the Carr program, so they looked outside to Rodriguez instead of, say, Ron English or Mike Debord. Oklahoma handed over the reins to Lincoln Riley after Bob Stoops stepped down (though that was admittedly a late transition). You probably don't want to disrupt too much in Columbus when you're coming off a 12-1 season and a conference championship.

12/04/2018 - 3:38pm The defensive tackles weren…

The defensive tackles weren't good this year, but I have yet to see a Greg Mattison or Don Brown defense with a bad defensive line as a whole. When Hutchinson, Paye, Jeter, etc. are getting first team reps, I would expect them to play very well.

12/04/2018 - 3:36pm Lawrence Marshall? Marshall…

Lawrence Marshall? Marshall didn't see the field for his first couple years on campus. That's a bad comp.

12/04/2018 - 3:33pm Nick Saban is defensive…

Nick Saban is defensive coach. He's involved with the defensive backs. Naturally, he's more inclined to hand over the reins of the offense to someone else.

Harbaugh is an offensive coach. He's not going to take his fullbacks and tight ends and hand them over to a dude who wants to run 5-man protections all the time and throw the ball 60 times.

Of course there are things he can improve, but I don't want him to be the coach of an Air Raid team, because then he's only operating at 80% capacity because he's not in his realm of expertise. If Warde Manuel wants an Air Raid offense, then he needs to go out and find the next Lincoln Riley or Mike Leach or Josh Heupel or whoever.

12/04/2018 - 12:13pm I will be very interested to…

I will be very interested to see how Kingsbury's attack works with Drevno as OL coach and J.T. Daniel as the QB. USC gets high-profile, stud quarterbacks, and the Air Raid often works with guys who are lower rated and don't necessarily have the pedigree of someone like Daniel. I imagine this is probably a 1- or 2-year rental until Kingsbury finds another head coaching gig, but it should be interesting in the meantime.

12/04/2018 - 12:11pm It wouldn't have been a…

It wouldn't have been a dream. Harbaugh's style and Kingsbury's style do not mesh. If you want a Kingsbury offense, you might as well fire Harbaugh.

I don't know why people can't understand this.

Now that Paul Johnson is retired from Georgia Tech, I think Harbaugh should hire him to run Michigan's offense with all the fullbacks and tight ends!

12/04/2018 - 11:39am Nobody cares about a Peach…

Nobody cares about a Peach Bowl trophy, but 11 wins looks better than 10 wins. And a season-ending win over an SEC team with a lot of eyeballs on the game during bowl season is a good reason for optimism.

12/04/2018 - 11:31am Which Stoops? Mark? Bob?

Which Stoops? Mark? Bob?

12/03/2018 - 3:47pm True, but Loeffler has…

True, but Loeffler has improved B.C.'s total offense from the bottom of the FBS to middle of the pack, which is something.
