I thought it was interesting that in his presser posted earlier today he commented about critiquing offensive plays.  He’s obviously more than an offensive line coach, but is also bringing, probably along with McElwain his years of experience as an offensive minded coach.  Looking at the whole play.    Seems like testament to the culture that there do not appear to highly rigid lines of responsibility.

64 male.  U of M graduate 1977.

wife is also a u of m graduate in 1977 and grew up in Ann Arbor.  My grandparents, mother, father, both sisters, uncles, aunts, brother in laws, etc. etc etc all graduated from Michigan.  I watch every cotton picking game.  Missed one for a funeral this year.  

She understands the obsession.  But I watch in the basement, in the dark with the sound off, which she thinks is weird.  No radio either.  I am a few years away from not watching the game at all as I increasingly can’t stand the tension.  First grandchild  was born this year and I’m beginning to put things in perspective.  Finally.

And what is so pathetic is that Durkin himself didn’t recognize this.  How, in God’s name did he think he could lead the team?  If he had even a modicum of self awareness and more importantly decency, he would have resigned.

I think you’re correct.  And I would add to that that the u of m offense, which has shown glimmers of genius these past few weeks is on the verge of coming together and I think will come together this coming Saturday.  This game won’t be close.

10/21/2018 - 9:11am From my seat on the couch, I…

From my seat on the couch, I think central to Harbaugh’s game plan/offense is ball control.  When the other team does not have the ball, bad things cannot happen.  The last three minutes of this game were a thing of beauty.  I think Michigan made two first downs on low risk plays that essentially ended the game.  How many times in the past ten years have we needed the “4 minute offense” and we didn’t have it?  State’s offense had 19 minutes on the field in this game.  

10/20/2018 - 6:44pm Agreed.  I’ve been watching…

Agreed.  I’ve been watching Michigan football, closely, since 1973 when I was a freshman at Michigan.  I don’t think I’ve seen as dominant a group as what we’ve got now during that span.  1997 was good but I think these guys are different and across the board better.  Much more depth.  Defense won the games in 1997.  Michigan had  an average to slightly above average offense with a shut down defense.  As they say, defense wins games and offense sells tickets.

Guy reminds me of and may be the next Jerry Hanlon.  Coached under Bo for 22 years, 17 as OL coach.  Produced 19 All Americans.  He really didn’t need to recruit either.

This stuff goes in phases.  From 1950 through 1967 Michigan won only three of these games.  There were two ties.  Those were bleak years.  Unlike  most  rivalies, this one seems to be noted for long periods where one team seems to absolutely dominate.  And then the tables turn and the other team dominates for the next decade.  Let’s hope we’re launching a new era this Saturday.  I think I sense the nascent emergence of what Harbaugh has been building for the past 3 years.  I truly think we might be entering that new era where the tables are again turned.  

10/14/2018 - 9:24am Actually, they’re win at…

Actually, their win at Penn State sets up nicely. Lewerke, in my estimation, throws a lot of risky balls, and PSU dropped several sure interceptions.  That won’t happen next week.  I predict at least three interceptions.

My suspicion is that Michigan has an above average number of coach’s and ex-player’s kids.  I would guess that coach gravitates to them for the reason that he is one himself but also because they most likely enter the program with a clear understanding of expectations.  Way ahead on the learning  curve.

Bo also enjoyed, at least partially, an era of unlimited scholarships.   That began to end in 1973 when they were set at 105.
