No. I wouldn’t watch football without kickoffs. Otherwise I would miss the extra commercial between the kickoff and the first play of the drive and wouldn’t know what kind of car to drive or soda to drink.

I’m still baffled by our free throw shooting.  Any chance we get up to 70% this year?

Ugh. Just take the sack.

I’d like to hear a rules expert on that Mason play. I don’t think he ever really broke free of the defender, I’m wondering if he should have gotten forward progress.

Ha. Exactly what I was thinking in the 1st quarter 2 years ago.

Woof. 5 wide from the 2 with a jet sweep fake. Going deep in the playbook here. MSU sucks.

Hmm. Odd choice. At least try to hard count them once before taking a safety...

I love that the O’Neil crew got this game. Should be an annual tradition.

I believe we were called for offsides on the kick

I think Loh deserves some serious credit here. He’s actually doing his job and acting as a fiduciary of the board, not as a direct report.

I’m going to make a statement with absolutely no evidence to back it up, except experiences in my life and knowing others with similar experiences: I’m wondering if having a baby that had some health issues didn’t contribute to his seeming lack of energy last year. Just one thing I don’t see brought up in these threads.

10/21/2018 - 9:51am This pre-game controversy is…

This pre-game controversy is dumb. It’s a Sparty narrative to play the victim card and claim a moral victory. Let’s focus on the complete domination that took place on the field.

if we’re going to criticize Sparty’s off-the-field behavior, let’s focus on the stuff that actually matters. We all know what a trash institution that is.

10/20/2018 - 5:02pm Complete domination. Some…

Complete domination. Some missed chances and a costly turnover made it a game. Otherwise, steamrolled them. Ability of this team to grind out 1st downs in the 4th quarter has been a difference. 

10/20/2018 - 3:01pm This feels like a much…

This feels like a much different game if Nordin makes that FG. Need a stop coming out of half here.

10/20/2018 - 1:36pm Maybe avoiding/delaying or…

Maybe avoiding/delaying or throwing off the scripted MSU drive.

10/17/2018 - 5:58pm Ha. Seriously. Not to…

Ha. Seriously. Not to mention the points M left on the table this game. Cryst made a couple of play call errors in hindsight. They had like 20 yards passing before the sad TD drive. Come on.

10/13/2018 - 9:16pm The hate towards the play…

The hate towards the play calling is questionable. She’s killed a couple of drives by not being aware of rushers and playing hero ball. Other than that, M has moved the ball reasonable well.  Run game is a bit rough though. 

10/06/2018 - 9:43pm Great game. Team is…

Great game. Team is ascending at the right time. Worried a little about injuries, but we have depth.

My favorite sequence of the game was when higdon got stoned on the goal line, nice play by LB.  He got a little appetizer on that play, he got the main course from Mason on the next play, and he didn’t want it.

10/06/2018 - 4:30pm Pretty much a complete…

Pretty much a complete beatdown. Also got a TD taken away.

10/03/2018 - 4:13pm I’d be curious if he 5 men…

I’d be curious if he 5 men in the backfield penalty on the punt. I counted 3 at most. Not sure how they got that one so wrong either. 

09/29/2018 - 10:55pm Also, on the punt after that…

Also, on the punt after that call we got flagged for 5 men in the backfield. We didn’t have a shield in that formation, so I’m not sure how that was possible.

09/29/2018 - 7:33pm That formation penalty may…

That formation penalty may have been worse? How were there 5 guys in the backfield there? There wasn’t a shield. 

09/17/2018 - 1:46pm Safeties - maybe I missed it…

Safeties - maybe I missed it, but I’m surprised Metellus didn’t even get a shoutout for a pick 6. Seems like the safeties at least had one positive in the game...

Urban Meyer: tragic hero.

09/16/2018 - 1:27pm Ok, so all the hate for the…

Ok, so all the hate for the offense has to do with 1 drive?

09/16/2018 - 12:56pm I’m trying to understand…

I’m trying to understand this. Outside of the first drive or two, where maybe our coaches weren’t expecting continually aggressive run blitzes and then shortly after that adjusted, it seemed like a pretty good mix. 

Box score shows 18 passes to 41 rushes. 6 rushes wee Shea’s, so some of those were called pass plays. Do you expect 50/50 in a game where we’re up by multiple scores for the whole 2nd half?

 

EDIT: damnit, this was meant as a reply to username03 above

Isn’t there a finite amount of time to practice?

09/16/2018 - 12:08pm Good Q’s OP. I’m really not…

Good Q’s OP. I’m really not understanding where all the hate is coming from wrt the offense. They’ve shown clear improvement week to week. Likely even when taking into account the opponents. They scored on, what, 6 straight drives to end the game?  What’s wrong with that? 

It’s odd, out of one side of their mouth people want the playbook opened up to bomb the tomato cans at the beginning of the schedule, and out of the other side they want a tressel or dantonio style game plan just for the divisional foes. You can’t have both with this team.

09/11/2018 - 3:27pm Eh, I’m thinking Nike is…

Eh, I’m thinking Nike is about selling product, like they’ve always been. If they think taking this on with increase the price or volume of shoes they can sell, they’ll do it.

Wow. 48-17. Can’t say I saw this coming

Since we have some of the legal experts replying to questions, I have been genuinely curious about something:

have there been any examples of men accusing women of sexual assault under these title 9 proceedings?

09/10/2018 - 8:27am There isn’t much to complain…

There isn’t much to complain about with the defense over the past 3 years, although some would say safety has been a weakness.  One thing for sure, these safeties aren’t afraid of contact (little too much in Metellus’s case)

I noticed Honigford specifically had a really nice block on one of the Wilson runs.

I consider Duke and NW football peers. I don’t think that loss is overly embarrassing for NW or the conference.

NW defense at least has a pulse. We should learn some about our O that game.

Unbelievable play by Michigan’s offense today.

Interesting comparison. Didn’t Penn State lose in week 2 to Pitt that year. Then got mauled by Michigan on the road In late September? 

So, what you’re saying is losing to ND to start the season should be expected this year?

09/02/2018 - 11:33am Was thinking a bit about…

Was thinking a bit about this. I think the nature of our defense makes it more likely for opponents to be put in 3rd and long situations (tough to dink and dunk), but also more likely that they convert 3rd and long (high risk reward, blitz happy).  Therefore, by compounding probabilities, we’re better off if the opponent requires more 3rd down conversions per drive (I know this is obvious, but it’s important).  The point here is that 15 yard penalties on our defense that move the opposing offense right up the field without having to earn the yardage is extremely painful. Really goes against the entire model of our defense and offense (we can’t score quickly and need field position gains).  We really need to cut down on those errors.

At least the UNC players will have a great education to fall back on.

Woot! John O’Neal crew doing auburn vs Washington. That means not the M game!

Those Flanagan boys can really play. I’m wondering if Michigan has ever had as impactful single HS class (same school) before?

Solid field. That tourney typically sucks though (facilities and crowd). Maybe the teams involved in 2019 will improve that. 

08/30/2018 - 11:13am Maybe I don’t understand,…

Maybe I don’t understand, but one thing I don’t like is the kid is getting paid for future pro value, not for the actual value produced in college. Obviously they’re correlated, but there are plenty of example otherwise and those are really the guys that need to be getting paid in college.

I prefer “Urban Enabled”.  Goes beyond having knowledge and not acting. He actively covered for ZS.
