M is one foul away from putting the Cats in bonus. It’s really the refs putting the Cats one away but I digress. 

A lot of iffy calls going against a team that doesn’t foul 

01/13/2019 - 1:55pm We were at Jerry World…

We were at Jerry World yesterday for a family friends’ baby birthday party. He has access to the field and we went down to kick field goals and such. Like to think I’m a fairly versatile athlete, yet shanked 5 kicks in a row from 30yds out, indoor, no rush. Last kick of day, for I had to make one, split the uprights, with maybe 5yds to spare from 30 

So, yeah, it stands to reason most of us aren’t kicking professionally and we would do well to maintain a level of empathy. 

01/12/2019 - 5:20pm Subjective truths are…

Subjective truths are preferential and probably shouldn’t be met with scorn. Like wearing a favorite shirt and someone saying, “that sucks!”  

“Maybe to you, but I like it.”

I think the Stones & Beatles suck. I don’t like their stuff. Zepp? Meh. 

But still fun to discuss

Really can’t remember paying attention to asst coaches or coordinators until early 2000?

Been a M fan since mid 70’s and I don’t think there was that much focus on anyone other than the HC. 

Social media has certainly magnified it but even with recruits , we didn’t know who M had until the first game in the fall until the last 15-20 yrs (?)

01/10/2019 - 3:50pm 4 times in red zone without…

4 times in red zone without points in first half. Pretty sure they know how to use WR’s. 

What they don’t know how to do is teach the FG kicker to lead block into two 300 lb DT’s. 

01/09/2019 - 12:28pm Bama gave up an increasing…

Bama gave up an increasing number of points the last six games, culminating with the beatdown given by new and improved Clemsoning. 

Point being- a solid defense is good and nice (see Clemson) but sugar still have to score points. 

01/06/2019 - 9:25pm Great to see JB trust Johns…

Great to see JB trust Johns w minutes. He looked lost at times on offense, mainly when he and Charles were trying to figure out who was screening at the top. 

But he looked good and like he belonged. Depth will only get better. DeJulius even got some burn. 

 

Poole is sick. 

01/01/2019 - 3:52pm M was 0-3 in games they gave…

M was 0-3 in games they gave up 24+ pts. 

Bama was 6-0 in those type games. 

M is not Bama, granted. 

Offense needs to cover in today’s game. It can’t. 

12/31/2018 - 11:43am Great stat from Ant Wright…

Great stat from Ant Wright via Wolverine Corner:

Bama gave up 23+ Points six times this year and won every game. 

Guess what Michigan's record was when that happened? 

0-3

So, in the NCAA today, defense may be a good thing but it isn't the thing.

12/30/2018 - 8:51pm This is a short sighted take…

This is a short sighted take on it. MSU has no one back- all 11 were coming after the punt. Harbaugh had gunners on BOTH sides and didn’t bring them in to block. 

6 on the line, 2 back, 1 punter vs 11. Sure all he had to do was what he’d done all year - catch and punt. 

So that’s not on Harbaugh   - everything leading up to it, including turtling like Iowa game, and everything after such as the punter not falling on the ball is on the coaches  

 

12/30/2018 - 1:51pm Acceptance is the way to…

Acceptance is the way to freedom and peace! 

Looking at it like this, Wew does it bring some clarity. 

Crud. It is what it is 

12/30/2018 - 1:23pm Woo! Someone must have made…

Woo! Someone must have made it a point of emphasis to get to basket when in high post. 

Good job staff 

12/30/2018 - 1:21pm Oh look a high post dribble…

Oh look a high post dribble drive and finish 

12/30/2018 - 1:17pm Once in the high post, Go to…

Once in the high post, Go to the basket, draw defenders & contact. 

Win 

12/30/2018 - 1:04pm The alarming ease with which…

The alarming ease with which teams are attacking the basket off the dribble is troubling. 

The early help seems to have disappeared the last few games and the autobench seems to be discouraging protection at the rim. 

12/30/2018 - 12:48pm National perception of…

National perception of Michigan football and Harbaugh isn’t good. 

M backers may defiantly say and think “Who cares?” but it doesn’t change that. 

 

12/30/2018 - 12:41pm Michigan is attacking this…

Michigan is attacking this zone properly, getting the ball in high post rather easily and often. Problem is they can’t finish majority of the close looks. 

 

12/30/2018 - 12:35pm Binghamton isn’t exactly…

Binghamton isn’t exactly cowering to the #2 in the land. Attacking the basket with impunity 

12/30/2018 - 12:31pm The missed short range shots…

The missed short range shots and the breakdown in D is a bit maddening. 

12/30/2018 - 12:20pm How does any player miss…

How does any player miss that egregiously from the FT line? 

Yeesh. Cmon Charles

Never bet a Michigan team to cover

Auto bench after Teske early foul

NFL has it and Ezekiel Elliot was called for it and fined two weeks ago. 

In this case both Barnes and the RB lowered their helmet 

12/29/2018 - 8:10pm What highly skilled player…

What highly skilled player would want to come here seeing how M utilizes highly skilled players?

12/29/2018 - 8:08pm This will be forever the…

This will be forever the battle cry under Harbs - more speed, more beef, more this & that. 

How about coaching the dudes you recruited and have. 

Harbaugh needs “too many things” in order to win. 

12/29/2018 - 7:19pm So this playoff thing is a…

So this playoff thing is a bit overrated too?

These games haven’t been competitive, mainly bc as the head ref said at the coin toss, “congrats on being selected”. 

So, just implement 8-16 teams so these selection committees are only selecting seeds, not semi finalists. 

12/29/2018 - 5:51pm Just think if that was M…

Just think if that was M with the ball to end the half. The half would have ended with a run play and then the clock would have run 45 seconds because Jim was getting the ball to start 2nd half. 

 

12/29/2018 - 5:39pm LOL. Did you just give a 53…

LOL. Did you just give a 53 yr old leader of men an excuse to not be that man?

You are probably the same guy who says "They're just kids" and then in the same thought, forgot that. 

12/29/2018 - 4:55pm They were just a better team…

They were just a better team," Chase Winovich said. "At the end of the day, they seemed like they had us. I think this is an observation, but for the most part, they had us figured out. They knew what we were in and how to manipulate it.

 

No kidding. The elephant in the room is really "they" = "Don Brown" and most likely someone on M's staff impersonating a legitimate offensive coordinator.

12/29/2018 - 4:52pm Tough, tough conference and…

Tough, tough conference and OOC opponents, am I right?

12/29/2018 - 4:38pm I guess don't expect…

I guess don't expect anything different than the previous four years.

Beat up on inferior teams, struggle with middle of the road teams, get curb stomped by equal or better teams. 

Run 65% of the time and give up 3rd and longs at an alarming rate.

Expectation set!

12/29/2018 - 4:36pm One thing I noticed: post…

One thing I noticed: post game handshake or lack thereof. All this Michigan difference talk and Harbaugh can't even take more than a second to congratulate Mullens on kicking his ass?

There are other things to get on him about, which are relegated to actual coaching, but that was pretty ungracious and regardless of his competitive nature (which ought to be directed toward his own team), it was bush league and not becoming of someone who is supposed to be leading young men.

I know, I know, I'll get off your lawn now.

12/29/2018 - 4:17pm Is a good coach only a good…

Is a good coach only a good coach when he has "players"? This whole time I thought a good coach was a coach who could adapt to personnel. 

Crazy.

Here's a couple of examples (which have been prevalent during Brown's tenure):
1. RB in motion, out goes the only LB in middle of field to cover RB to boundary edge of field). Commence free yards for rumbling QB's as a safety comes down to play MLB

2. Man coverage on 3rd and long or (take your pick) man coverage on goal line with no communication. 5 DB's on 4 WR, name it.

He's a one trick pony and it doesn't matter if Bush was out there or you. You both would have vacated the middle of the field (where, you know, a MIDDLE linebacker plays) and picked your nose while watching someone from the other team bust a gain.

Shea isn’t a top 5 QB. Maybe in B1G. 

12/29/2018 - 4:00pm Not sold on Shea. Not sold…

Not sold on Shea. Not sold on Harbaugh. 

I realize that’s MGoBlasemphy but man, oh man, what a sport disappointment. 

12/29/2018 - 3:30pm There’s a lot overrated-ness…

There’s a lot overrated-ness going on and that includes Shea 

He’s thrown 3-4 balls out of bounds, underthrown the bomb and is generally too antsy in the pocket. 

It’s going to be a loooong off season. 

12/29/2018 - 3:25pm Hey how is that S&P metric…

Hey how is that S&P metric thing working out for all the number crunchers 

12/29/2018 - 2:49pm Double tight 2 route play. 

Double tight 2 route play. 

Makes sense 

12/29/2018 - 2:37pm We can discuss players out…

We can discuss players out but the scheme Brown runs is a one trick pony. Regardless of who is in there are assignments. 

Obviously, players are coached but Florida offense is not good and has had its way all day. 

Most of that is a direct result of players being out of position after a year (or more) of being in this scheme. 

12/29/2018 - 2:31pm Metullus- fantastic job 

Metullus- fantastic job 

12/29/2018 - 2:22pm Well M did win all the games…

Well M did win all the games during the week. So that’s something 

12/29/2018 - 2:17pm Brandon Watson ladies and…

Brandon Watson ladies and gents!

Don Brown gets a consolation award there 

12/29/2018 - 2:14pm That was terribly thrown. 

That was terribly thrown. 

Black wide open in flats, DPJ open on corner route

Noodle arm. Shea is definitely overrated

Did I lose my sarcasm tag? I was being facetious

What coach could Michigan get that could do better?

Cmon, man. Just cmon. 

12/29/2018 - 1:43pm Expecting anything other…

Expecting anything other than what we’ve seen from Harbaugh and the staff is, now, stupid and hoping against hope. 

Playcalling, clock management, adjustments, personnel groupings, route combos, etc. 

It is what it is. It’s pretty mind numbing 

12/29/2018 - 1:38pm Same as game one vs ND. 

Same as game one vs ND. 

Clap frantically to get LG attention to signal the center to snap the ball. 

Running the ball in two minute drill. 

12/29/2018 - 1:33pm Blaming Kinnell is short…

Blaming Kinnell is short sighted 

The scheme was stupid from the start. If we were in man, why was there 5 DB’s to the boundary side with 4 WR? 

We have watched the LB get pulled out to edge for four years  and leave Middle of field wide open
