He doesn't fit what used to be the NFL QB mold (6'4"+, 220+ or whatever) ... But I don't think there's a mold anymore. They're valuing arm talent and mobility more than ever (Trubisky, Mahomes, Watson, Mayfield, etc). I think Patterson has similar natural skills to those guys. So who knows anymore? If the right people start hyping him, he could be a first round pick. He's very similar to Trubisky in my opinion. Trubisky is similar in size, strong arm, mobile (but not a burner), and doesn't have a ton of career starts in college. Trubisky was almost exclusively operating out of the shotgun, only had like 11 career starts, and stll went #2.

I'd like to see about 30 offensive line recruits in the stadium.

09/07/2018 - 9:12pm My biggest concern this year…

My biggest concern this year was offensive line. My next concern was replacing Mo Hurst. He was Aaron Donald for us. Even if we returned 10 of 11 starters, it's hard to imagine the same level of defense without that guy. It's going to be damn near impossible if Solomon is also out, and Dwumfor is indeed way overhyped.

09/03/2018 - 12:51pm Shea Patterson - Running for…

Shea Patterson - Running for His Life. But seriously, our offensive line made Shea and McCaffrey look like the same guy. Frantically clap for the snap, feel pressure instantly, run from the pocket for your life, throw a dart across your body as a wall of defenders climb on your back.

09/02/2018 - 12:07pm I saw Dwumfor out there, but…

I saw Dwumfor out there, but the Dwumfor hype was absent (from what I could tell). I don't think Wimbush could have kept stepping up in the pocket (and occasionally running after stepping up) while Gary/Winovich circled behind him if we had anyone close to a Hurst/Glasgow type. 

09/02/2018 - 9:31am Win or play tight with every…

Win or play tight with every team until OSU, which is when we'll get trucked by Haskins, who is 10x better than Wimbush.

I'm convinced that nothing matters bc we're all just in a race to see who gets pummeled by Bama. Until something drastic changes in college football, we're stuck in purgatory with all the other struggling "historical programs" -- like Texas, Tennessee, and Notre Dame. It takes about 2 drives for me to say, "welp, this team wouldn't touch Bama."

Its all about the team, the team, the team ... But those who stay, will be champions -- so I can't decide if we're all supposed to join you, or let you die solo 

08/31/2018 - 11:07pm Maybe I'm crazy, but I…

Maybe I'm crazy, but I thought Utah State looked like a decent team. Their offense was pretty good and their tempo messed with MSU. They we're clearly outmatched on the defensive side of the ball, but they made some really nice tackles in the open field. They smacked Scott hard a few times.

Maybe the M is exactly where it should be, and the yard line is off.

Im not a techie, or a Apple hater / Droid truther etc ... but Chromecast audio is pretty sweet. I synced up my entire house -- basement, kitchen, living room, bedroom, garage, deck speakers, pool patio speakers, etc etc. It's great for parties. You can even power the dongle with a power bank, so you can use a battery powered speaker completely wirelessly for yard games and set it right by the cornhole boards or volleyball net. I just wish more apps supported it. Spotify works great with it though.

08/28/2018 - 9:45pm NC State had a running QB…

NC State had a running QB who racked  up decent yardage, and a solid overall run game. ND tried to pass twenty something times and couldn't execute a snap without fumbling. So yeah, like ND and NC State in 2016. I obviously want Michigan to win, but I'd rather have the better OL in a rainy game, and I have a hard time seeing us as having the better OL -- especially with a new Center and QB exchange to worry about.

08/28/2018 - 9:37pm Like Michigan State vs…

Like Michigan State vs Michigan last year.

08/28/2018 - 9:20pm I'd assume rain would help…

I'd assume rain would help the team with the better OL and running game. I'm guessing that favors ND. They have the more mobile QB as well.

Thamel is wrong. We've already received concrete information from a forum poster, who knows a guy, who lives next to Jim Tressel. Thamel does not have ironclad sources like that.

08/17/2018 - 9:30pm This is tital guessing and…

This is total guessing and speculation on my part, but here is my take ...

If they know when the results will be revealed, then they already have the results. If he was being fired, why wait? They could fire him the moment they realized that was his fate. If they extended the date, it would mean they are truly on the fence and more information was out there to process. The only reason I can think of for why you would delay an announcement while already knowing the results of the investigation, is that you want to appear to have done a thorough investigation so that you catch less shit when you announce that he's reinstated.

Total guess.

08/17/2018 - 5:39pm If they know when it's going…

If they know when it's going to be over, I assume he's back. Seems like they're already done investigating and are just allowing an appropriate amount of time to pass to make it seem like they did their due diligence. If it lingered on, I'd be more convinced that there was an actual chance he might be gone.

A piano and jugs machine -- is he musically inclined, or does piano playing strengthen your fingers to catch footballs? Or both?

Not having an app has reduced my board activity significantly.

It's pretty important to her and her kids though. That shouldn't take a backseat to Urban Meyer coaching or not.

He looks like he has the frame to add a lot more.

He'll be on leave until another big story breaks elsewhere, then they'll slide him back in.

That's about as good as it gets, in terms of getting actual information from a coach. Good stuff.

Where was he hoping to play before this news? He didn't get drafted, right? Did he get a camp invite somewhere?

Any idea if something similar could be made by MGoBlog? Does Brian's Twitter automatically tweet front page post alerts, or does he do that manually? If an additional alert account could be made for Diaries and Board Posts, I think it'd be a huge help for members.

It'd be nice just to have an app for the board. I have no issue reading front page content on the wctuac site, but the board is confusing as hell on the site (as opposed to the basic Android app). The website arranges posts by last comment date. Is there a way to organize by the time they were posted? That's why I liked the app -- it'd just show "posted 45 mins ago" "posted 2 hours ago" "posted 4 hours ago" and so on. It was an easy way to check for breaking news without hopping on the site or on Twitter.

What happened to that O-Lineman that flipped to Stanford last minute? Totally can't remember his name. The kid that had a connection to Poggi. Has he done anything so far in his career?

05/11/2018 - 2:53pm I'm not saying the trips

I'm not saying the trips should be viewed as payment. I'm saying that the trips are something that Harbaugh figured out to legally (by NCAA means) add value to his players college experience, that other players at other schools are not enoying. It's not direct compensation, but it's definitely a great benefit.

05/11/2018 - 2:49pm That's what it cost the

That's what it cost the University, but how much would it cost to take 5 separate trips to Europe on your own after college? All travel, hotels, food, activities, and so on completely paid for. If a game show told you that you won all-expenses paid vacations to Rome, Paris, and three other European destinations, I'm guessing that wouldn't be viewed as a weak prize ...

05/11/2018 - 12:48am The current 2nd year players are probably going to

The current 2nd year players are probably going to get $100k+ each in vacation and travel value if these Rome and Paris type trips keep happening for their full 4 (or 5) years. Pretty sweet deal for the players.

Sometimes I blend the three together -- find a hooker who will let me snort coke off her ass and do a Sudoku on her back. It's been a little more difficult to come by since Backpage got closed down though.

Why isn't Bluiett a pro prospect? He's got the size and the three ball. Is he not a great athlete or something? I didn't watch him much at Xavier, but I saw him tear through the Indiana HS tournament.

Probably just a super small signing bonus at best I'd assume. Camp arm.

He is the best QB in the draft, just not at football. Huge caveat.

Well, at least they'll know who to give the ball to if they're in the Super Bowl and need to score from the goalline to clinch a Championship.

Not the exact same situation, but it immediately made me think of the social media threats by Jonathan Martin (former Miami Dolphin).

04/08/2018 - 7:45pm I thought the framework of the coaching staff was

I thought the framework of the coaching staff was an issue, but I'm purely guessing. It took two guys to call plays, and that's assuming Harbaugh wasn't calling any as well. Drevno was supposed to worry about the offensive line, but also had to worry about when he'd be called upon to chime in with a run play. Pep is calling pass plays and then giving motivational telephone calls to the QBs between possessions. Harbaugh is giving feedback to the QBs before and after Pep calls. There were some serious blurred lines between the offensive responsibilities. Maybe that works just fine in practice, but I thought it looked clunky on gameday. There were a lot of times when neither the QBs nor the OCs knew which QB was going to be in the game, because that was Harbaugh's call and he was caught up in the game. Felt like sometimes 3 different guys had to make a decision just to get a play in.

The whole point was to show the personalities of the players and coaches. It's not like we're creeping on their snaps or tweets. They agreed to be on a reality show basically. What should we be talking about?

I was surprised Khalid Hill got zero face time in the documentary. He seems like an easy pick.
