What are your other hobbies, brain surgery?

12/18/2017 - 5:26pm Rich Rod Analogue

This may or may not be true but Rich Rod had a Top-10 offense in FEI and S&P+ this year.  He's still really good at tweaking his offense.  Chip Kelly is likely to be very good on O at UCLA.  Very good.

12/04/2017 - 9:15pm I remember when the season

I remember when the season ended after losing to OSU in hoops last year too.  We aren't a great team but that's what happens when you lose 3 of your top 4 guys.  There's enough talent to get to the dance and win a game or two.  Next year's class will be special.

Do you really want to compare JT Barrett as a RS junior to our QB situation after Speight went down?

Highly unlikely.  

10/25/2017 - 3:57pm You're correct about freshman

You're correct about freshman but great QB's are often ready to go as RS Freshman.  And by ready to go I mean capable of winning national titles.

Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, and Johnny Manziel were all great as RS Fr.  And there are plenty of others.

10/22/2017 - 4:54pm I would gladly trade Taylor

I would gladly trade Taylor Lewan and Michael Schofield for Mason Cole and JBB/Ulizio right about now.

Harbaugh is a good coach.  I think he will succeed here.  But if there were 2 areas that you would have expected he could fix it would be QB and OLine.  As of now they're the 2 worst units on the team.  That is a major problem and there are huge red flags as to whether they will be fixed even next year.

We have to replace Cole and have zero obvious solutions.  We still have no right tackle and MIGHT have solutions if there's development.

For the rest of this season, I would strongly endorse trying Bredeson at RT and moving Runyan to LG.  Ulizio/JBB are unplayable as it stands and if Bredeson can play RT it would greatly help for 2018.

10/15/2017 - 11:30am You may want to re-think

You may want to re-think this.  If Speight cannot play next year (he isn't being nudged anywhere) our QB situation will be a disaster in terms of depth.

If Peters truly is as far behind as UMBig11 and Balas suggest we have to search for a grad transfer QB again. - NOW.   Unless you want the depth chart to read McCaffrey (who could be in the same spot as Peters next year), Peters (who supposedly is significantly worse than John O'Korn), and true freshman that are both considered projects.  That is a recipe for disaster.

Best case scenario is for McCaffrey or Peters to elevate and pass a healed Speight but those things are all very unsure at this point.  

The coaching staff knows Speight's medical prognosis and needs to plan accordingly otherwise we could have another season subverted by the one position that Harbaugh was supposed to be able to give us an automatic edge at.

10/15/2017 - 2:24am Yeah, like Michigan's base

Yeah, like Michigan's base 3/3/5 and 4/2/5!

10/09/2017 - 5:34pm Peters

Peters (and McCaffrey) are both mobile and could run plays designed to take advantage of O'Korn's legs

05/11/2017 - 10:42am Um no - he has a returning

Um no - he has a returning starter in Dawkins and a talented sophomore that was forced to play last year due to injuries to Solomon and Dawkins (another Tate actually) that are both way ahead of Rhett Rod on the depth chart

So, I'm pretty sure DJ Wilson will be invited back

11/29/2016 - 12:14am A few things

Since Bredeson was supposedly in the mix to start at LT this year I think he will slide out there in 2017.  Ideally we could move him to RT in 2018 if we land an elite LT this year.

Due to the lack of depth on the interior of the DL I think Onwenu will be the backup nose guard if he doesn't win an offensive guard spot.  I think he would be an excellent space eater behind Mone.

I could see an OL of:

Bredeson / Kugler / Cole / Dawson / Ulizio

to start the year.

The DL will be fine if Hurst comes back.  If not, you may have to push Gary inside and roll the dice with some of the young ends as I don't think we can expect much from Dwumfour yet and you don't want to be forced to start freshman.  The depth there is quite worrisome.

I don't think we can count on Winovich yet as a starter but he should get all of the pass rush snaps.  Someone like Kemp could easily overtake him as the "starter" and split reps.

I think SOMETHING probably took place with this but the article is HORRIFICLY written and the author clearly doesn't understand how legal documents work.

I also find it interesting that the accuser managed to sue Donna Karan based on another similar incident.

11/11/2014 - 11:49am Gardner hasn't had any

Gardner hasn't had any mobility since he was hurt against Penn State on that awful hurry up QB sneak. He can't manipulate the pocket well, escape, or make cuts while running. Watch him glide around last year vs. now it's completely different.

10/21/2014 - 2:10am Spot on Brian.  That Chip

Spot on Brian.  That Chip Kelly quote is a total red herring.

10/21/2014 - 2:05am He was trying to

He was trying to differentiate between getting your assignment correct in terms of blocking and the penalty of targeting a defenseless player.

I expect MSU to lead in that kind of targeting as they usually do.  Lewis should have been thrown out last year on the first completion of the game to Gallon.

10/20/2014 - 8:01pm targeting meaning blocking

targeting meaning blocking the right guys

10/20/2014 - 5:04pm QB Sneak

Brian-

No comment on how DEHD the hurry up QB sneak thing is now that it's on film and the ONLY THING MICHIGAN RUNS IN THAT SITUATION!?

Just like the speed option audible last year that was telegraphed by the change to the Pistol, that horrible play got Gardner hurt while getting stuffed.  They tried to run it earlier in the game needing 2 1/2 and that was about to get stuffed too.

MSU will be more than prepared.  Do you think we'll have the half brain required to have some sort of counter to it to catch them off guard?  I doubt it.  This is a coaching staff that had to use the one good counter they've had all year against Miami.  NTM.

Putrid.

10/10/2014 - 1:05am Arizona isn't starting 5

Arizona isn't starting 5 freshman or sophomores on D.  They are starting 2 or 3.  Now that Bondurant is starting and basically playing linebacker the only first or second year players that are really starting much are Scooby Wright and Jarvis McCall.  Wright is a true soph and McCall a RS freshman.

I'm not really sure what that has to do with anything though.

10/07/2014 - 12:54pm Scott Frost

I like Frost although he's likely to end up at Nebraska and I can't imagine Michigan hiring a coordinator with no head coaching experience.

He played for:

Bill Walsh

Tom Osborne

Bill Parcells

Bill Belichick

Jon Gruden

& coached under Chip Kelly.

Not a bad list of coaches...

He's also coached (and played) on offense and defense

09/18/2014 - 1:38pm And since then the defense

And since then the defense has gotten worse not better...

Zero freshman were forced to play on the O-line last year.  The only true freshman that played was Bosch and there were several other options.  That was just a coaching decision and seemingly a mistake considering the results.

I'm not arguing that experience was an issue on the O-Line last year but the coaching staff made a complete clusterfuck of the situation with the constant shuffling of personnel and scheme.

I watched Oregon take out Sparty 2 weeks ago with major offensive line problems.  Coaching matters and it's hard to argue that our coaching is making the most of what we have anywhere on the field.

09/07/2014 - 5:06pm The inmates run the asylum.

The inmates run the asylum. That is the issue and has been since Bo died and Lloyd retired. If you are going to hire a football coach based on the fact that former players from a bygone era like the guy you're sunk. Especially when they submarine the guy hired in the first place.

Because of our reluctance to hire someone from outside the program the only answer coaches the 49ers.
