When is Pep leaving? Lordy.

That’s right. This is why I love this blog, despite the occasional troll. I guess even those can be funny sometimes.

I posted that in honor of OT season as a joke but it generated a number of informed responses about gravy.

I'm no Space Coyote, but to my eye Michigan's passing game suffered last season primarily from two things: 

1. Mediocre pass protection.

2. Few receivers who were quick-twitch enough to get off the line/press coverage for a more quick-hitter passing game.

DPJ and Collins are fast and talented, but they're not jitterbug/slot types. That's why it was so important to get guys like Giles Jackson and Sanristil. 

I also think the loss of Bushell-Beatty hurt Michigan more than fans realized at the time. From Rutgers on we weren't the same team.

I should apologize for this post. I was trying to ridicule the post before mine in an oblique way -- the one that wished Eleven Warriors would create more content about Michigan. I thought, "what a stupid post, I'll make one that's even more ridiculous." For whatever reason I thought surely no one will respond to my post about gravy, of all things, and that it would immediately be recognized as satire. To my astonishment almost 100 people have commented about gravy on a Michigan sports blog, and no one has realized that I was trying to be funny.

Leach is a despicable human being. I know he likes to be a “character,” but he’s morally bankrupt.

Just saw the tweet. I am on the fence about whether it's a good look or not -- I mean the waving and grinning in front of the Bama logo. I would be curious to know what others think.

"he’s in Alabama picking up Josh Gattis to bring him and his family to Ann Arbor today"

Do they honestly drive? From Alabama to Ann Arbor? All packed together in the family van?

I saw something on Reddit about Myles Hinton but I can't find it now.

This is an excellent post. Part of the problem with Michigan's passing game this year was also that their offensive line, while improved, still could not protect Shea for very long. In other words it still wasn't very good in pass pro. Maybe that's obvious.

This article seems incredibly cruel and exploitative. These kids are as young as 16 and they're calling them out for making the schools they have committed to "winners" and "losers." What a bunch of leeches.

That's a sound business decision and you have no right to pass judgment.

Some people must still rent Red Box movies because they sponsored a bowl game. They better have another idea soon though or they’ll go the way of Blockbuster.

As a side note Marvin will be announcing his TOP TEN!! later tonight. Stay tuned!

This is what I wished for right here! A shortish post from stephenrjking! My Christmas is complete!

Of course he went to Michigan only because OSU “didn’t recruit him harder.”

He had VERY high praise for Pep Hamilton on his Twitter page fwiw. I am very confused about Peo. I know the general sentiment here is that it would be good for him to move on. I would love to see a detailed post on why. I don’t know enough about football to form a reasonable opinion.

I'll be going to the Peach Bowl but don't have tickets yet. What's the consensus on when to buy? I looked at Stubhub just now and tickets in the upper reaches of the stadium are now around $78, with better seats still reasonably priced. Will prices keep coming down? Should I keep waiting or pull the trigger?

I wonder if Michigan State is done being relevant for a while for all practical purposes. With us, Ohio Stat, and Penn State mopping up the top talent in the Midwest where do they go? They have no resources or brand enthusiasm to recruit nationally. 

12/19/2018 - 12:50pm Perhaps the most remarkable…

Perhaps the most remarkable part about this class is how many states we recruit. 

Compare that to Michigan State: 

Obviously this requires an insane amount of work from Matt Dudek and Michigan's coaches

Wow what a class act this kid is. His announcement ceremony was the best I have seen.

Marvin falls for it 87% of the time. I am a glass 13% empty guy with regard to this clickbait shit.

I think it has been all about speed for a long time now. To me, the end of the big lumbering linebacker came in the late 80s or early 90s. One game in particular was significant in this regard for Michigan -- or at least it seems like it was to me because I was there. It was when Michigan played Florida State I think in 1990 or 91. I know it was a much hyped game since both teams were highly ranked. Michigan had a bunch of huge slow linebackers with neck rolls -- Erick Anderson and Steve Morrison -- good Big 10 linebackers but not super fast -- and Florida State had Amp Lee on offense and Terrell Buckley on defense. We were so slow in space that it was laughable. That's when the whole "speed kills" phrase got started I think. Anyway they scored like 50 points on Michigan's defense, which was thought to be great before that game. I know we were undefeated in the Big 10 that year and beat OSU and all that, but it revealed in striking ways a terrible disparity between the Big 10 and the "fast" teams from down south.

Do you think there is too much positivity? I don't want the fans to get too positive because that can lead to a world of horrible horrible shit.

The poster Ghostofjermaingonzales said we can expect several more nice surprises next week. He has privileged information about the program right?

Yes I did. That's something that I did on a Friday night.

I was only kidding. I'm not a grammar nazi.

I listen to a variety of music. I have spotify and Iheartradio. Sometimes I have a hankering for classic rock, so I'll search for "Pink Floyd Radio" or "Rolling Stones Radio" and of course you geta mix of things. For some sick perverted reason, along with the "classic" band you type into the search bar, these apps will play bands such as Poison, Def Leppard, Motley Crue etc. It's absolutely horrible. I suppose the computer is not discerning enough to make a distinction between The Stones and Poison, but God what a shitty thing when "Every Rose has a Thorn" comes on. Or "Wild Side." And then it's in your head for hours.

If you want to make a word plural, you add an "s" and an apostrophe. For example, "I ate two donut's this morning."

This is why it would take an almost saintly level of patience to be a good recruiter.

I don't see any mention of PH in there. What do we know of his recruiting chops?

Edit: or maybe PH is leaving and that's why he's not listed.

Was reading about Michael Cohen just before this post and tried to make a joke. My mood has now shifted and I see it's not really funny.

I disagree about the ethics of reneging on a commitment. If you tell a coaching staff that you're committed, you should stay with it unless there is a significant coaching change. I realize Michigan tries to flip kids all the time and I'm happy when they do, but that doesn't make it altogether right. This is obviously just my view -- I'm not trying to be preachy.

Marvin is also move invested in Michigan than ever! Go Blue!

Thank you for all of this feedback! Very helpful. I live fairly close to Atlanta and will wait to buy tickets.
