You think Cam Cameron and Mac’s name were leaked so we would be grateful for the eventual hire?

02/12/2018 - 12:36pm Any substance that makes me

Any substance that makes me peak into euphoria has a tough payment around the corner. It took me 10 years to realize alcohol sends me into a deep depression about 2 days after drinking.

It’s a double edged sword.

His writing drew us here because it’s honest and hits the right note. It’s not manufactured to please us, so if he is indifferent right now then well...that’s what we get

01/25/2018 - 4:52pm Now I want Enos to coach

Now I want Enos to coach here. Before Saban came knocking I was pretty meh about the hire.

01/05/2018 - 10:34pm This is a great fit

An uninspiring hire for an uninspiring offense. Harbaugh wants to catch us off guard when he wins the big 10 championship

01/05/2018 - 2:49pm I’ve always said Willie

I’ve always said Willie “Flipper” Anderson is the only one who can get through to Kekoa Crawford

01/05/2018 - 2:46pm The offense

The offense looks...uninspiring

12/22/2017 - 8:46am That's exactly why he would. 

That's exactly why he would.  16 games with only a 53 man roster is insane.  XFL could scale back to 10-12 games and bring a lot of what's right with the NCAA into pro ball.

This thread title sounds like an Eastern European trying to relate to American Football.

If you don't mind me asking a meta question: what plugin are you using for Comments?  I like how it has me signed in via Google.

11/30/2017 - 8:40am His philosophy during those

(Edit: +1 for the sourcing...now I’m rethinking what I wrote. Leaving it in though)

His philosophy during ‘14-‘16 was “crap we’re down by 21, give it to Dalvin”

His staff’s recruiting was too good for him to be forced into riding one guy that heavily. I understand resorting to that if you’re Louisville but FSU was pulling in top 5 classes and had talent everywhere.

As soon as Dalvin left so did his teams ability to compete.

11/17/2017 - 2:38pm I forgot the season used to

I forgot the season used to end on this week, damn that was way too early.

11/15/2017 - 7:17am Wait.  How do we know

Wait.  How do we know this...I thought Brian was giving his buest guess as to what is happening downfield.  Aside from the Purdue game, can we even see what's happening?

11/13/2017 - 7:22am I don’t think we can compare

I don’t think we can compare products just because they’re both on TV. The offense just learned how to run their base play, I’m not sure if they should already know how to stack a DB, settle in zones and have Brady’s accuracy

11/11/2017 - 9:27am I used to scan through these

I used to scan through these but Bryan has been killing it.  Now I'm wondering how much good content I've missed

11/10/2017 - 8:37am This is really good stuff

This is really good stuff Seth, thanks.

 

"Just go away" is my new favorite caption this season

Gap if they suck

Is outside zone a scheme you use to target any specific weakness?

It doesn’t feel right to downvote you for an opinion and I won’t, but goddamn man. This comment is everything I’ve ever disagreed with

If the committee looks at Peters’ trajectory we should crack the top 4 easy:

10/26/2017 - 5:57pm I think this was the best UFR

I think this was the best UFR of the season.

Those counter option plays are a thing of genius. I’m not even mad about those.

10/24/2017 - 9:33am I don't know if we have to go

I don't know if we have to go all the way to the Rich Rod & Pat White end of the spectrum though.  Harbaugh gets dual-threat guys that can freeze one player every play; like a DE with Bootleg action. 

I don't think Harbaugh has brought in one statue at QB yet.  All these guys have at least Alex Smith speed.

10/24/2017 - 9:21am Worst RB to watch on TV

I hated Eddie George.  Everytime I watched that guy he'd run into a pile for 3 yards, 25-30 times a game.  It was the most boring thing to watch.

What made it worse was Madden always saying "he's a bruiser, feed him 25-30 times a game to wear down a defense."  NO JOHN, HE'S GETTING 3 YPC HE SUCKS. 

I'm still not over that

10/22/2017 - 8:51am I mean check my 'joined'

I mean check my 'joined' date: I have seen THINGS, man.  Harbaugh got this.

10/22/2017 - 8:47am I agree, pass pro is horrible

I agree, pass pro is horrible right now.  

 

Not to sound pessimistic but the ground doesn't look like it will be made up this season.  It feels like a 3-4 loss season with 'Any Given Saturday' rules applying against Ohio.  In the meantime, there are markers being met and we can see what Harbaugh is building towards

10/22/2017 - 8:42am It's what we are building off

It's what we are building off of.

 

Gentry doesn't have the hops and body control of Gesicki, and our Freshman receivers aren't at Hamilton's level.  There are no matchups vs slot DBs to exploit, spread isn't what we are building.

I'm looking at kick outs, doubles and pulls and seeing how they are shaping up for 2018 and beyond.  It's working but we also have to be competent with some downfield shots; screens and TE drag routes are not the intended payoffs of our manball.  Once we put this all together, it's going to be fun.

10/22/2017 - 8:32am Not if he learns from it. 

Not if he learns from it.  Agreesive fronts backed up with man coverage was working.  Now, lets see what he does to adjust.

10/22/2017 - 8:29am Consequence of playing

Consequence of playing MANBALL?  It would be interesting to see where most of these penalties are coming from.

---

There is something uplifting about seeing Onwenu and JBB caving guys in on doubles and Onwenu sending guys to Bolivia on Power.  I'll take these bumps as long as in the near future we get to win AND physically demoralize teams 4-6 yards at a time.

10/20/2017 - 3:59pm I’m having a strong premonition...

Their will be a preview for Rutgers next week, and this will be the first coment. I will be confused. And then sad.

10/17/2017 - 6:00pm Amphetamine-fueled Brian and

Amphetamine-fueled Brian and Johnny’s RBUAS were the golden years of M blogs

Actually, I’ve always wondered if Brian was on any ADHD meds early on. Dude was churning out 2-3 posts a day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind

10/17/2017 - 5:57pm The spread vs M

Our dance with the Spread-n-shred began with Northwestern

Then Jeff Smoker, IIRC.

Then Vince Young.

Then...this.

Then Rich Rod and Denard.

Then Don Brown and Devin Bush.

We are getting better at this.

10/16/2017 - 7:41pm It feels like Harbaugh

It feels like Harbaugh bludgeoned the MGo team into submission

10/15/2017 - 10:59pm Yes, but can he play right

Yes, but can he play right tackle?

10/15/2017 - 12:03am It was his "Feagin against

It was his "Feagin against Minnesota" moment.  Now he gets arrested?

10/14/2017 - 11:58pm HE SIMPLY USED POWER

Power is what the disembodied head of NCAA '06 Kirk Herbstreit says to me the night after every OSU loss.

Zone is what DeBord keeps calling because he has a nervous tic that won't allow him to call anything else.  He tries to sing out the words 'flea' and 'flicker' but they just won't come.

10/14/2017 - 9:53pm In situations like these I like to quote the man who said

“Wins and losses, that’s just a statistic, we’re out here just playing together as a brotherhood, playing together as a family.”

Our games are starting to feel like NFL Thursday Night Football.

This is how you troll.  It's better than spray painting a statue.  If only Sparty knew how to Drupal.

10/14/2017 - 12:18am this was the only thread that

this was the only thread that could've pulled me away from Brian's preview.  Holy shit 'Cuse...fight on, or whatever your fight song is. 

10/13/2017 - 9:21pm The week after a downer

The week after a downer doesn't end right without a preview telling me what a loss will cause Brian to do

10/12/2017 - 4:14pm FYI:  One of the clips in the

FYI:  One of the clips in the UFR is a baby talking tutorial.  Hilarious, but I'm assuming missplaced.

 

This UFR is giving me hope, I get the doom and gloom because we lost, but Wheatley, JBB and Onwenu all look like guys that can demoralize opponents on the ground.

The passing game is gone, forget about it and move on.  But that running game looks like it's got a ton of potential.  I don't care how good at rushing the passer OSU is, what are they going to do when Wheatley cracks on them, or Onwenu drive blocks...you can't scheme away from that.  Our OLine run game is like GGG walking through punches.

10/09/2017 - 7:39am Barrett, a Heisman candidate

Barrett, a Heisman candidate goes down. Cardale came in and won the Championship

Penn State has walk ons and freshman starting on their OLine

Sparty lost recruiting battles to Rutgers this offseason. Joe Spivak decided to walk on at Northwestern instead of taking a full scholarship to play at Michigan State. Unranked wide receiver Jalen Tolbert “followed his heart” and chose South Alabama.

Wisconsin loses Schobert and Beigel and still churn out sacks and TFLs with a walk-on. They lose the recruiting battle for Bredeson and the running game doesn’t miss a beat.

All these teams find their way to the big10 championship game.

But we lose Speight. Or it rains. Or a starting LT is out. Or Henne can’t go so a freshman Mallett has to come in. Or a DT goes down and we play an undersized backup. Or we miss on a recruit like Justin King, RoJo, Jai Eugene, and now some Devery Hamilton kid. We always find excuses. We always play the “if only” game.

We can still win

Not this game but Illinois can be beat.

Nick Sheridan threw an 8 yard touchdown to Greg Mathews and kept Michigan UNDEFEATED at the Metrodome.  No other quarterback can claim that.
