That would be a strange way for d coordinator Holt to get back to USC.  He was there with Pete Carrol and left for Washington with Sarkisian.

Agreed, I was just caught off guard by the insider saying he had decommitted.  I wanted to see if it just hadn’t made it to the board yet.

If I could do it all over again I’d just say Vols.

10/26/2018 - 9:45am Factual.

Factual.

Is he though?  Maybe they can hire (rehire) Schiano away from tOSU, the way that defense just played he may be looking for a job.  He had them...competitive?... in the ACC

Nebraska v Purdue may be 101-100 final score.

In his defense there were, what, 75 minutes where we were sitting in a locker room instead of on the field.

I’m still salty he left WKU.  Here’s how WKU lost tonight: at the end of regulation ODU gets called for roughing the passer. On the untimed down WKU goes for the field goal, the kick is short and returned to the WKU side of the field...WKU gets called for unnecessary roughness so ODU gets an untimed down.  Kicks the field goal and wins...

Whoops, I thought LSU played Bama next weekend.  That’s my fault.

Fairly positive one of their guys called Michigan little sister last year.  It’s-gun-b-k.

10/15/2018 - 1:24am Fun fact: I bought a heat…

Fun fact: I bought a heat pump from them in 2016, got it installed in 2017, and got a five year protection agreement.  1 year and a couple months later it stops working, they’re telling me o bought it in 09 before I owned a house, and that there are no records of it.

Our “discussions” have been going since May of this year.

Also expect chippy play.  Think Lewan v Gholston...

10/14/2018 - 6:13pm Define badly on the road…

Define badly on the road please.  We had 1.5 bad quarters against Notre Dame where we lost all the 50/50 plays, after that they executed it was just too little too late.  

The offense came out slow on the road against Northwestern, who beat state on the road by double digits.  But Michigan still won that game.

The ability of this team to rally and refocus is more important than what it looked like in either of those games.

10/13/2018 - 11:32pm I’m going to need Brian to…

I’m going to need Brian to keep saying things like “There’s no way we beat Wisconsin by double digits.”  And other we’re going to win but not emphatically comments on radio shows.

10/13/2018 - 11:22pm But wouldn’t it be sweet to…

But wouldn’t it be sweet to see Mork’s face if they did work against MSU?

09/27/2018 - 11:16am It started popping up during…

It started popping up during Fox’s pregame coverage at Michigan games this year.  And it’s slowly gained “popularity”.

I can’t believe that 8ball has taken over the blog like this.

09/25/2018 - 6:16am Serious question: They had…

Serious question: They had one of their best classes ever shortly after that didn’t they?  I mean half those kids got das boot but still.

09/24/2018 - 2:38pm Who is Darboh, Alex.

Who is Darboh, Alex.

But somehow they’ve always got that special we’re playing Michigan gear recently anyway.

09/24/2018 - 12:50pm That’s true.  But think…

That’s true.  But think about how the plays work.  Defense fights to the ball in the backfield, then chases the ball down the field.  Unless there’s a convoy you’re talking about the legs of one or two offensive players and the entire defense chasing them.  Those two offensive players rotate out but most of the defensive guys that ran the ball carrier down have to stay in.

That’s why you’ll see o-linemen trot up to the line take a couple deep breaths then get into position and d-linemen put their hands on their hips tilt their heads back to get more air and then get set almost at the last second.

09/24/2018 - 12:43pm You mean Jordan Glasgow…

You mean Jordan Glasgow...khaleke is having some staying on the field issues.  Not entirely his fault.

09/24/2018 - 12:41pm Where’s the respekt?!  This…

Where’s the respekt?!  This comment probably just made the MSU motivation wall.

09/24/2018 - 12:40pm That was Devin Bush I…

That was Devin Bush I believe.  He dove for the punters legs just as the punter slip/flipped and ended up hitting him “above the shoulders”.  “Above the shoulders” just happened to be below his knees.

09/24/2018 - 12:30pm The other part to last year…

The other part to last year is our defense was on the field too long.  Doesn’t matter how good they were if they’re on the field for 3/4 of the game they will run out of gas.

09/24/2018 - 12:27pm I’m just glad there’s No…

I’m just glad there’s No Kinnick in Michigan’s future this season.

09/24/2018 - 12:26pm True but I like our…

True but I like our offensive weapons against their defense much more than JT and Hornibrook perfection passes against our defense.

09/24/2018 - 12:21pm Hate that for him, at least…

Hate that for him, at least he's getting a degree from a great school.  I hope NW continues to honor his scholarship.

09/17/2018 - 1:19pm This is the front runner? …

This is the front runner?  Man I’m going places.  I have a sample size of two throws.  I just thought it was weird he’s throwing it at the numbers instead of lofting it a little.  Apparently i didn’t do enough to convey my appreciation of the current situation we find ourselves in offensively.

09/17/2018 - 1:13pm I see both of your points,…

I see both of your points, someone else brought up the corner raking the TE’s arms too.  Hadn’t thought about that scenario.  

09/17/2018 - 1:04pm Nope, just think he has that…

Nope, just think he has that kind of talent

09/17/2018 - 1:01pm Given the perception of our…

Given the perception of our offensive line that’s one heck of a take.  I haven’t been able to tell if, as a fan base, we all have an internal clock ticking and it just feels like forever or he just has a reasonable amount of time to make reads.

09/17/2018 - 12:59pm Sure I’m one of those fans. …

Sure I’m one of those fans.  I definitely wasn’t appreciative of the fact that I have a sample size of two throws to base this NITPICKING take on.  Shea is ridiculously talented, it’s more aggravating that he wasn’t offered in the first place.  It’s just something I noticed and wanted to see if I was alone on.  Based on the responses, yes I’m very much alone on this one.

09/17/2018 - 12:54pm Not what I said.  I said our…

Not what I said.  I said our tight ends are giants and I alluded to the fact that Shea can pretty much put the ball wherever he wants because he’s ridiculously talented.  The interception against SMU he threw it to the numbers of McKeon.  If McKeon comes back at a better angle this doesn’t happen, if Shea throws it where only McKeon can go up and get it this doesn’t happen.

The same situation happened late against Notre Dame, that was frustrating to watch but probably doesn’t change the outcome and I don’t think that one was picked off.

I’m simply saying Shea is easily talented enough to place the ball where only our tree people sized tight ends can get the ball.

09/17/2018 - 10:12am Like I said, nitpicking. …

Like I said, nitpicking.  Just something I noticed on a couple throws to McKeon specifically in the Notre Dame and SMU games.  He places the ball so well 90% of the time it was just weird to see him throw it right at McKeon’s numbers instead of up.  McKeon should have fought for it or taken a better angle back to the ball but throwing it up would have helped as well.  

09/17/2018 - 10:08am I really was just making an…

I really was just making an observation about something I just happened to notice, specifically when Patterson throws to McKeon.

I’ll relegate myself back to the shadows before I get the troll label.

09/17/2018 - 10:06am Oh you guys think I’m…

Oh you guys think I’m legitimately a Mineral King account...well that sucks.

09/17/2018 - 10:04am Finally!  A like minded…

Finally!  A like minded individual.

09/17/2018 - 10:03am When you got the funk, you…

When you got the funk, you got the funk.

09/17/2018 - 9:46am Meh.  When he throws to…

Meh.  When he throws to McKeon for whatever reason it’s always to his numbers instead of up.  Throwing it up is a TD against SMU and a first down against Notre Dame.

Like I said, I’m nitpicking.

09/15/2018 - 10:36pm Given the tight games going…

Given the tight games going on across the B1G I’ll take a wonky 25 point win.

09/15/2018 - 5:30pm Maryland last year.  Western…

Maryland last year.  Western Michigan had 15 season ending injuries last year as well

09/04/2018 - 12:55pm Apparently there are new…

Apparently there are new clock rules and it starts faster?  There was a lot of that happening all day in most games I saw.

09/04/2018 - 12:52pm But, but, but ND is worse…

But, but, but ND is worse than Utah State!  /s

i don’t understand how we all knew going in that ND was a really good team but as soon as we lost you’d think we lost to App State again.  The problems that we had they also had, their receivers just came up with the jump balls.  That this game was competitive was a huge improvement.  Can you see last years team going down 14 in the first and clawing back into it?  

Everything is going to be fine.  And if it isn’t, I’ll still cheer for Michigan on saturdays.

UK basketball fans because I’ve heard this statement all over the state: “I swear if the NCAA leaves us out of the tournament we should just leave the NCAA!  We’d be fine!” Followed by some snorting and spitting.  Also, they are Alabama football fans, yankee baseball, and usually Dallas or New England fans because - “we only root for winners”

 

Football, any fan who gets on twitter and tweets at high school players.  They collectively are the worst.

The only way to keep good relationships with insiders who are getting paid for their knowledge is by not copying and pasting.  Ever since the merger things have gotten a little more quiet

07/26/2018 - 2:44pm Sweet username. Sweet username.
07/17/2018 - 6:26pm Seconded.

Seconded.
