She is going to get off very, very easy you guys.

Do not, I said, DO NOT get your hopes up regarding anything remotely associated with what you would otherwise call justice.

 

11/20/2018 - 1:14am The thing that is remarkable…

The thing that is remarkable about John O'Neill is how his incompetence has seemingly adversely affected Michigan in every situation, when we know he and his clown crew have destroyed other game outcomes as well.  If it's just incompetence, then that's indiscriminate, and Ohio State would be just as susceptible as Michigan to get hosed by the officials.

Regardless. It's 2018. Michigan football is WAY overdue for its own game officiating controversy for THE GAME - but this time in reverse - for a UM victory.

Like a final game-winning touchdown pass from Shea Patterson to People-Jones with his toe in bounds, but on the white out of bounds boundary line and....TOUCHDEWWN MICHIGAN!

Ohio State fans pissed at the call forever and ever.

While Michigan fans buy photoshopped t-shirts with the inscription "YEAH, BUT HE WAS IN!!"

11/20/2018 - 12:44am Glad Warinner is in UM's…

Glad Warinner is in UM's huddle this year.

But this Ohio State team is unrecognizable from the 2017 team that rushed for 226 yards and 4.7 ypc and from the 206 yards and 4.1 ypc Ohio State gained vs. Michigan in 2016. 

This Ohio State team just throws and throws.

They are coached offensively by Kevin Wilson, former Oklahoma OC and Indiana HC.  Co-offensive coordinator Tim Beck joined Tom Herman at Texas.

This Buckeye team beat Penn State by 1 pt on the road, and rickety Maryland by 1pt on the road. They were in a dogfight with Nebraska, and struggled until the 3rd Qtr with both Minny and MSU until they broke away in 4th qtr

Under Kevin Wilson Ohio State is now pass-centric. They just chuck the ball to McLaurin or Campbell and let them run 80 yards for TDs. or they bomb it to Benjamin Victor or KJ Hill.

Ohio State's OL sucks comparatively this year to prior years. But in pass protection they are good enough - only given up 16 sacks for -75 yards.

Forget Indiana or Northwestern. Under Kevin Wilson OHIO STATE is THE NEW BIG10 CHAOS team!

11/20/2018 - 12:33am Question 1: Once or twice…

Question 1: Once or twice per day. Mainly interested in recruiting and injury news at this point, because 'tis the season.

Question 2: Probably an 8 out of 10.  Michigan should win this game, but turnovers, Urban Meyer, penalties, ejections, refs, in-game injuries, poor play calling by our OC Pep Hamilton and overall coaching staff clock management all combine to put me in a terrible state every time.  Michigan has a shitty record vs. Ohio State since 2001. Due for a turnaround, but....can't be overconfident.

Question 3: CFB Reddit Streams probably.

Question 4: Yes. Mainly because Michigan "hasn't played anybody".  The entire 2019 Michigan schedule - start to finish - has been a marshmallow walk this year to be honest. NW, MSU,Wiscy, PSU and even Ohio St. are all pansy opponents that an Alabama or a Clemson would decisively curb stomp. We know this is true.

And we also all know that Michigan WILL NOT curb stomp Ohio State on the road in Columbus.  As always, they will conspire to "make it an unnecessarily chaos game" that on paper should not be a game at all. 

Further, a UM win vs. this Ohio State team will be dismissed and minimized by the media, etc.  A loss to this Ohio St. team would be unforgivable given the circumstances. And Harbaugh and Michigan would never live that down because there simply are no excuses anymore.

So to me Saturday seems more and more like lose-lose for Michigan. The only difference is ahead of this game, Michigan has every reason for optimism of a victory.

For Ohio State, if they defeat No. 4 Michigan at home, it redeems Meyer, their football season, and they will almost assuredly win the BIG10 championship.  Again.

If they play true to form, Michigan should annihilate this OSU team and hold them to less than 20 pts, especially we look at common decent opponents and results.

Question 5: I think Michigan's D will play very well against Ohio State's O and keep them under 30 pts . I am far more concerned about Michigan offensive performance vs. OSU defense across the board - QB play, OL protection and blocking, receivers, turnovers and UM play calling.

 

 

11/19/2018 - 6:41pm Of course not.

Anything can…

Of course not.

Anything can and will happen in THE GAME in Columbus.

Ohio State has a number of things going for it:

1. #8 ranked scoring offense in the country, 42 pts per game, #1 in Big10

2. #4 passing attack in nation, 360 yards per game. #1 in Big10

The difference between Tom Herman and Kevin Wilson as OC is stark in that Ohio State has all but deleted QB runs from their playbook.  Ohio State is a pass-centric, Kevin Wilson Indiana team for the first time in forever.  This is ordinarily not a problem, except that Schiano has somehow replicated the Indiana defensive performance (9th in BIG10 in ypg, 7th in ppg). Unbelievable given Ohio State's recruiting dominance since Urban Meyer's arrival and Meyer's systems on both sides of the ball and special teams. Somehow  Wilson and Schiano's tactics have screwed up Meyer's long-standing recipe for success.

 

Michigan has a number of things going for it:

1. #1 passing defense in the nation,including 4 pick six's tied with Alabama.

2. #3 scoring defense in the nation.

3/ #14 ranked rushing defense in the nation

4. An improved OL with a 1,000 yard rushing for first time since 2011.

5. Healthy, mobile QB for first time since Denard Robinson in 2011

6. Overall good team health and depth

 

On paper, Michigan wins this game decisively by probably double-digits. But what if?:

1. Weather? No. It's supposed to be dry, cloudy and 46 degrees (41 degree Real Feel)

2. Turnovers. 

3. Refs.  I mean, let's be honest, all college football refs suck because they are part timers, and largely incompetent.  There is no way Michigan gets a break in this game in Ohio Stadium in front of that crowd.  Ohio State's OL is the WORST IN THE NATION in non-holding calls, getting away with it.  It will be no different in this game.

4. Ohio State is the toughest team Michigan has faced all season by a significant margin.

I wish Jim Harbaugh would do this on this sidelines up 42-0 vs Ohio State in Columbus.

11/13/2018 - 8:55am Yeah, remarkable how the…

Yeah, remarkable how the complexion on the faces of MSU and OSU fans dramatically changes once Michigan finally fields a team with an upright, bones intact quarterback for the first time since 2011 and just an average, run-of-the-mill BIG10 offensive line.

Once Ohio State finishes with Maryland and Michigan is done with Indiana, it is Game Week.

And may God have mercy on our souls.

Stages of Grief setting in.

They are slowly starting to get what the future holds.

11/12/2018 - 3:54pm Because Michigan's rushing…

Because Michigan's rushing offense is 5th in the BIG10 in rushing, not 1st.

Our offensive line is significantly improved.  But that only means improved compared to what it was before, which was awful.

But even if Michigan's rushing offense is ranked 5th in an underwhelming conference this year, Samuels has to compete for carries with Higdon, Evans, Wilson and now Shea Patterson, as well as Ben Mason and true frosh Christian Turner. 

Samuels is an impressive physical specimen, fast as hell and has a bright future, but competition only gets tougher when Eric Gray and Zach Charbonnet show up on campus next year.

Brandy is a Michigan man and a good person. He has done fine work.

But I don't care what anyone says. You simply CANNOT have two color guys announcing Michigan football games.

Frank Broyles and Ara Parseghian calling football games would have been a media catastrophe.

You NEED a Keith Jackson, a Lindsey Nelson, an Al Michaels, a Larry Munson, a Bob Ufer, a Lyle Bremser.  It's kind of a rule you just don't break.

There are no substitutes.

11/12/2018 - 12:09pm The reason Miami Hurricanes…

The reason Miami Hurricanes dominated the 1980s and 1990s was because they recruited DEs to play DL, except for Russell Maryland.

Nobody could block him either.

It's utterly insane. And that's pretty much why it worked. What can you do against talent and speed?

Indiana is bad at football.

True, they are not Illinois- or Rutgers-bad at football. But Indiana is pretty damn bad.

The Hoosiers are coming to Michigan Stadium, where Indiana has not won a football game since the Lyndon Johnson administration.  It's going to be senior day at Michigan. The last time many of these players will wear the Michigan blue home jersey. 

Emotions will be very high.

Indiana is gonna die.

Karlaftis wouldn't follow his commitment to Brohm and go to Louisville?

If interest in Michigan is high, with Mattison and Brown still at UM, why commit to Purdue at all?

It's because of Brohm.

If Brohm goes to Louisville, he is going to try to take recruits with him.

Also, Rondel Moore is going to be pissed.

11/12/2018 - 11:31am I don't get why Karlaftis…

I don't get why Karlaftis would want to play for Petrino and Harbaugh, but not follow Brohm to Louisville.

Why the high confidence that, should Brohm leave Purdue, Karlaftis would come to Michigan?

Wouldn't he consider following Brohm?

Also Brohm leaving BIG10 for Purdue for Louisville? I know he played QB there and stuff, but man isn't that a giant slap in the face for BIG10?

Just be proud of your team's effort.  That they played with confidence and pride.

Then respect your opponent and STFU after you lost - fair and square.


They are bitching about injuries - Michigan doesn't have Grant Newsome at LT, nor Rashan Gary at DE.

They are solipsistic dumbasses.

From a distance people will see a huge splash from Spartan Stadium, and assume some idiot did a huge belly flop. But no, it's just Michigan blowing Sparty out of the water.

Michigan 41, MSU 17

 

10/18/2018 - 12:51pm Michigan State's 3rd down…

Michigan State's 3rd down conversion rate is 35.2%.

That's just ahead of Illinois's illustrious offense.

MSU has no running game - rankied 13th in the league ahead of Rutgers.

The dink and dunk stuff passing attack might work against Michigan a couple of times, but will they consistently get to Felton Davis and the receivers/TEs for 3rd down conversions?  They haven't thus far.

Against their best opponent of the year, Penn State, they were 25% on 3rd down and 50% on 4th down (2 attempts). 

So MSU's game plan has to be to beat Michigan's defense with LeWerke's legs, LeWerke's short passing attack and bombs to Felton Davis, who is going to be covered by David Long all game. And you also have to hope Michigan shoots itself in the foot with turnovers again and lots of penalties.

I think the game will be close and unpleasant for the 1st half, but I don't think MSU will be able to stop Michigan offensively or move the ball consistently on offense.

10/16/2018 - 11:22pm Well, he's not necessarily…

Well, he's not necessarily wrong.

10/16/2018 - 11:32am It is interesting to me how…

It is interesting to me how so many people believe it's all about intensity and emotion, and a failure to not getting sufficiently "pumped up" and emotional.

No.

The fundamental problem in almost every one of Michigan's losses to Michigan State has been just poor execution on fundamentals, stupid turnovers and drive/momentum killing penalties.

Do you need to be fired up, emotional and angry with righteous indignation to not whiff blocks, not commit turnovers and not commit stupid penalties?
Well, all righty then. Whatever works dude.

But frankly I think we all kind of know already that some problems are not solved with more emotion and aggression.

Instead: Preparation, focus, perfect execution, calm confidence, and application of both urgency and patience when each is required.

I could be wrong, but that's the vibe I'm getting from Michigan this time around. 

This time it's business. And just like all of the other games before it, the better team is going to win.

 

10/16/2018 - 10:43am "Let's take a look at how…

"Let's take a look at how what Wisconsin thought they were defending, and everybody's shoelaces suddenly came untied."

I just want to say I like your writing style man.

 

I do think that Shea and the Michigan QBs need to continue to work on selling their fakes on every play. Shea has been very good at this IMO.  And he was masterful at this while at Ole Miss, selling hand off fakes on zone read plays, shifting his entire body to align with his shoulders on RPOs, etc.  Crisp stuff.

It makes a difference for every play, because we know that some blocks take time to connect, set and sustain.  And every second of potential defender hesitation restricting their momentum and power buys blockers more time to set their blocks and gain leverage, and every second affords runners more time to generate inertia and escape routes.

10/15/2018 - 4:12pm All you have to do is…

All you have to do is compare every Dantonio recruiting class at Michigan State since he arrived there versus Michigan's classes under Carr, RR, Hoke and Harbaugh.

Then you understand the magnitude of Dantonio's accomplishment.

Dantonio has been outgunned on the recruiting trail by all of his BIG10 most of or all of those years. And not by a little bit. But decisively defeated on the recruiting trail. He has simply achieved more than Michigan has with a lot less amunition.

Like a modern day gridiron Captain Ahab, Dantonio has successfully twisted his hate, righteous indignation and resentment for Michigan and motivated the shit out of his comparatively less heralded, rag-tag recruits, and has used that to fuel MSU's performance and dole out retribution on the field. 

Of course, Michigan football fielding everything from arrogant and complacent teams like the 2007 squad to or the clueless/incompetent 2014 Hoke team certainly gave Dantonio a helping hand.

Unlike Ahab, Dantonio has not only killed his goddamned white whales over and over, he has a meat locker full of white whale carcasses over the last eleven years.

So one must give credit where it is due. Dantonio's MSU teams won those games over Michigan in a multitude of ways, often taking everything and more that Michigan was willing to give them.

This was true from the start, and that 2007 game as well. MSU almost won that game.

The last decisive Michigan win over MSU was 2006, 31-13. That's not a coincidence.

 

10/15/2018 - 3:54pm Regarding #2, Harbaugh would…

Regarding #2, Harbaugh would be 3-0 vs. MSU and Mark Dantonio if:

a. Fluke Special Teams breakdown didn't happen as time expired.

b. Michigan could have presented a decent, functional, upright QB in 2017 game vs. MSU

Shit happens in college football. How likely is either to repeat itself third time in 2018?

Unlikely.

This time the pressure is really on MSU (4-2).

MSU's lone area of dominance right now was rushing defense, 1st in the nation, but they are officially one of the worst passing defenses in the nation.

Except MSU's statistically impressive rushing defense was exposed last Saturday vs. Penn State (205 yards rushing surrendered at 6.4 ypc).

In total defense and scoring defense, Michigan is decisively better than what MSU has shown thus far and against much better competition.

Also, offensively Michigan is by far and away better than MSU in both passing and rushing offense and against superior comparative competition.

The only way MSU wins this game in East Lansing is if Michigan defeats itself with turnovers, penalties and unusual bad luck. That seems highly unlikely, even if Dantonio unloads the kitchen sink and motivates the shit out of his players. The motivation and anger stoking only leads to penalties anyway, which MSU cannot afford.

Every week Michigan seems to be improving, against tougher and tougher competition. MSU won last week in State College mainly because PSU's pass defense is equivalent to Indiana bad.

Dantonio's luck has run out IMO.

Michigan isn't fielding a shitty OL, a shitty QB, a clueless and non-disciplined defense or penalty prone secondary anymore.

So Dantonio may try to run right at Michigan like he did in 2016 with a scripted drive, but it won't work for the course of the game. Felton Davis is the main weapon, and Michigan is just going to shut him down with David Long.

That leaves the MSU OL giving LeWerke time to throw to others, or LeWerke's legs.

These are offset by Don Brown, Michigan's superior DL talent and Michigan's LB corp which are going to chase Lewerke into the turf.

Yes, Dantonio will have them seething from the start. But I think this is going to be that long-awaited Michigan blowout of Sparty in Spartan Stadium, for which many will be relieved, but then kind of feel malaise about because it dawns on us Michigan State is in fact just not very good.

10/05/2018 - 4:21pm As for Zach Charbonnet, I'm…

As for Zach Charbonnet, I'm just going to leave this right here:

http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/zach-charbonnet/4Qwzpjx0EeW-8KA2nzwbTA/gendersport/football-stats.htm

Dude is a beast.

Oaks Christian has played only 6 games. Zach has 890 yards rushing, 9.8 YPC and 11 rushing TDs and 5 100+ yard games.

That team is probably going to finish undefeated.

 

10/05/2018 - 4:15pm Answer: No.

Let's review:…

Answer: No.

Let's review: Michigan barely beat a weak Northwestern team last weekend by only 3 points.  Michigan has not beaten one single opponent of any consequence.

Maryland is going to be the best opponent Michigan has faced since Notre Dame.

Maryland is better than Northwestern defensively, and by orders of magnitude better than Northwestern offensively.

Michigan should win. They probably will win. But I don't believe Michigan wins this game decisively such that they can bring in 4th string quarterbacks to play.

10/05/2018 - 4:03pm Maryland's rushing attack…

Maryland's rushing attack and rushing defense are what gives me some pause for concern.

Maryland's rushing offense is 3rd in the Big Ten and commensurate with Wisconsin which is ranked 1st. 

However, Maryland passing offense has been dreadful - last in the league with 141 YPG.  While they don't throw TD passes, they don't throw INTs either.

So if Michigan can seal the edge against the run, Maryland no move ball. Maryland no score points.

Maryland's rushing defense is ranked 4th in the Big Ten, right behind Michigan.   Michigan will try to run on them, but will need to protect and throw to beat the Terps.  Temple's Ryquel Armstead rushed for 118 yards on 26 carries, 0 TDs.  Minnesota's Mo Ibrahim had 95 yards in 26 carries, 0 TDs.  Hidgon should be able to come close to that productivity. Would be great to have Evans back in the rotation again.

Maryland's passing defense is ranked 8th (just below Ohio St.). Not horrible. But nothing to write home about. They had two INTs against Texas, the best opponent they face.  Texas was 3 of 15 on 3rd down in their first game, and largely why Texas lost the game like they did.

Meanwhile Michigan has had a 50% success rate on 3rd down this year, while Maryland's is 32%.

Both teams have played similar schedules of softies and challengers (Texas, Notre Dame). Michigan's S&P Resume is ranked 50th on Strength of Schedule. Maryland's is ranked 66th.

The game is at Michigan Stadium, and although it has blowout written all over it, Michigan's slow starts vs. teams like SMU and Northwestern, combined with UM's playcalling and ongoing negative penalty modifiers cause by ref bias and incompetence lead me to believe Michigan will not dominate this opponent like they otherwise should.

When this game is over, we're going to feel bad about the upcoming Wisconsin game.

Wisconsin returns from their bye week and is going to throttle the Fightin Frosts in Madison on Saturday.

Michigan 31, Maryland 13

 

09/27/2018 - 1:54am You won't witness a Michigan…

You won't witness a Michigan vs. Nebraska football game quite like this one again for some time, perhaps never.

Nebraska is the worst defensive football team in the BIG10 right now. And that's saying something. And that something is really bad.

But I will probably feel a lot better about 56-10 if Nebraska by some miracle comes out angry and just flattens Purdue, the other really bad football team in the BIG10 South, next week in Lincoln and then proceeds to give Wisconsin a jolly good rogering the week after that in Lincoln.

But Nebraska is still banged up, not to mention very bad at football right now, so not going to happen.

As for Northwestern football, man they have not been impressive in any football game they have played.  I think Michigan will probably crush these guys.

 

09/22/2018 - 5:46pm Nebraska got destroyed today…

Nebraska got destroyed today. Michigan put them away decisively in all facets.  If this improvement continues and the Harbaugh playbook opens up even more each week, then this UM team will gain a lot of momentum like a train.  Northwestern is already in big trouble next week.

If you haven't heard Frost's post game press conference comments, then you should.

He was highly complimentary of the Michigan defense, offense and of coach Harbaugh today. Repeatedly saying so. 

A lot of UM fans hate the guy for the 1997 disputed championship comments and the "outhit" comment from 2016, but Frost is just a partisan competitor, and considering that I wouldn't expect anything less from the man.  It was disrespectful to say such remarks then perhaps, but he was humbled today. 

Nebraska has to dig itself out of multiple years of substandard recruiting and overall niceness from the Riley regime. Frost is the perfect coach to do that. But it will take him time.  Frost also admitted that their Thursday practice this week was full of problems and attitude issues, but he refused to mention it to the media at the time.  Hopefully they pull it together. I'd like Nebraska to pull out some upsets down the line this year.

I also listened to the IMG Nebraska radio broadcast while watching the game. Nebraska's football media did not think Michigan was a good team at all, and they were shocked and despondent.  No idea this would be the outcome.

Biggest problems for NU are:

  • QB health
  • Penalties
  • Turnovers
  • OL inconsistency

And all of that before the ball is snapped versus Michigan, which is the most experienced and talented team NU has faced.

Adrian Martinez will start and play.  This kind of stuff is just more Frost psycho-gamesmanship.

Martinez twisted his knee very badly vs. Colorado when a defender rolled over on it. Frost initially wanted the league to look at the film of that one play, insinuating that the roll over was done by CU defender on purpose to injure.   Regardless, Martinez is not be 100% versus Michigan.

Michigan's defense is far more aggressive and effective than Colorado's or Troy's.  So expect to see backup Andrew Bunch play and for Nebraska;s offensive production to be mostly on the ground.

Nebraska has a great receiver in Stanley Morgan Jr. and two outstanding running backs in Ozigbo and Washington. But without Martinez at QB, the weaknesses along the NU OL become very evident.

 

09/17/2018 - 3:22pm College football officiating…

College football officiating remains pretty damn bad, make no mistake.

This is becoming a serious problem, one not isolated to Michigan games.

The NCAA needs to get its shit together, bite the bullet, and mandate full-time professional, certified referees for all major college football games.  This part time business is OK for high school games, but not college/NFL.

The players are getting screwed over, and so are the fans.
