09/21/2018 - 10:27am I suspect the first half is…

I suspect the first half is going to look a lot like last week except maybe not as successful. Run into stacked box, stuffed/2 yd gain 2 times in a row, then obvious passing down that fails to convert because they know it's a pass. Going to have to hope DPJ or Nico can get a couple over the top or deep, otherwise I fear we'll struggle to get over 20pts with the dinosaur offense.

09/20/2018 - 12:05pm Yeah but 2 TD's were gifts…

Yeah but 2 TD's were gifts from the refs.

09/17/2018 - 12:34pm That's usually the…

That's usually the difference with teams like OSU and 'Bama, they have more talented backups, so they can rotate more and theoretically have a bit more left in the tank in the 4th qtr. 

09/16/2018 - 6:21pm I agree the jury is still…

I agree the jury is still out. But the reality is this that SMU would probably be on par with Northwestern, if not better, this year, and despite the crappy start and absolute shit refs, the team still pulled out a W that wasn't ever seriously in doubt after half-time. I'm not sure we win this game last year, if so it's close. So yes, jury still out, but there's signs of progress even in the midst of the legitimate frustrations.

09/16/2018 - 4:15pm Closer than it looked? Two…

Closer than it looked? Two of their touchdowns were gifts from the refs! 

SMU played way better than Western did, but let's not kid ourselves, this was not a close game despite the defense having an off day.

09/16/2018 - 2:02pm SpaceCoyote says Harbaugh is…

SpaceCoyote says Harbaugh is very familiar with the spread and knows how to effectively run it. Magnus says we look like a HS team. 

Is Harbaugh keeping a lot close to the vest or is he actually not aware how to effectively run the spread?

09/15/2018 - 6:42pm Same exact play Clemson used…

Same exact play Clemson used to beat 'Bama in the Natty 2 years ago.

09/15/2018 - 6:40pm Because not even the…

Because not even the starters can stop this garage offense.

09/15/2018 - 6:39pm The defense is ass my dude…

The defense is ass my dude. OSU gonna light that shit up like the Griswold house on Christmas.

09/15/2018 - 6:29pm FFS this defense is garbage…

FFS this defense is garbage against any QB that can run at all. 

09/15/2018 - 6:22pm If by secondary you mean…

If by secondary you mean refs calling BS PI, yes, it is.

09/15/2018 - 6:04pm That's some psycho…

That's some psycho revisionist history if I've ever heard it.

09/15/2018 - 5:42pm BUT GUYS DPJ IS TOTALLY A…

BUT GUYS DPJ IS TOTALLY A BUST ACCORDING TO AAAUMICH HOW CAN HE TD 2 TIMES IN 1 GAME?!

09/15/2018 - 5:06pm That's fucking karma for the…

That's fucking karma for the shit PI call the play before. Suck it refs! Suck it cocky SMU QB! Suck it assclown SMU HC!

09/15/2018 - 4:40pm Yeah how is that out…

Yeah how is that out talenting out physicaling going? 0 - 0 and the offense can barely move the ball against a garbage team. 

09/15/2018 - 4:38pm FFS, what is this dinosaur…

FFS, what is this dinosaur offense shit? IT DOESNT WORK ANYMORE JIM. Even the shit teams are stuffing it now!!!

09/15/2018 - 4:30pm In the words of Sam Webb, we…

In the words of Sam Webb, we need some fucking DOGS on offense. Not McKeon pussy footing around letting the defender pick it off. That was some weak shit.

09/15/2018 - 4:20pm Clownshow. Absolute…

Clownshow. Absolute clownshow on offense.

09/15/2018 - 3:49pm Lmao, absolutely mind…

Lmao, absolutely mind blowing play call. Smdh

 

Like watching a JV team at times.

09/15/2018 - 2:58pm To be fair they're starting…

To be fair they're starting a walk-on at QB, but still, Nebraska getting roasted at home vs Troy is pretty bad. If Martinez is out next week I don't see how Nebraska is even as good as Western overall.

I think Frost will get them back eventually, but the QB depth and defensive talent is going to take years to rebuild.

09/12/2018 - 4:08pm You got me. I'm a coach…

You got me. I'm a coach/player. I'll make sure all the feedback on personnel and playcalling you guys have make its way to Harbaugh and staff. The team should really turn around now!

09/12/2018 - 11:51am Back for Wisconsin would be…

Back for Wisconsin would be real nice.

09/11/2018 - 5:19pm Cool. So how is offensive…

Cool. So how is offensive tackle recruiting going??

09/10/2018 - 2:49pm I don't know about that…

I don't know about that. Going to have to hit some deep shots against Sparty and Wiscy to win those. We'll see if the OT's can hold up long enough to do that.

09/10/2018 - 11:52am That... that looks good to…

That... that looks good to me. Ref's have been abnormally shitty for the last 4-5 years.

09/10/2018 - 11:37am Indeed. I'll be shocked if…

Indeed. I'll be shocked if he finishes the game vs UM, if he even plays.

09/09/2018 - 2:52pm I'd rather they stay around…

I'd rather they stay around 20-ish, could use some chip-on-the-shoulder motivation.

09/09/2018 - 12:53pm The way our OL has been for…

The way our OL has been lately, a true freshman at the weakest overall position executing a routine block at a high level is "destroying" in my book!

09/09/2018 - 12:10pm Mayfield needs more PT. Not…

Mayfield needs more PT. Not sure if Western had their 2nd string in, and didn't get a good look at his pass-pro, but dude was destroying people in the run game.

09/09/2018 - 11:50am From what we've seen so far?…

From what we've seen so far? No, it's not. Mostly because of the OT's.

09/08/2018 - 5:46pm They dead if he goes down…

They dead if he goes down. Only scholarship QB on the roster.

09/08/2018 - 5:01pm They both have an identity…

They both have an identity though, they know exactly what they want to do. Idk that UM really does. Seems like we try to run every style of offense there is and aren't great at anything.

09/08/2018 - 3:29pm I'd have to see a replay to…

I'd have to see a replay to confirm, but I think the problem is if the TE helps chip that gives the defender an extra second to recover and cover the TE, then the route is dead. Versus if the TE just takes off he's likely to outrun a LB or be open for a bit until a DB can catch up, at least enough for a small gain.

09/08/2018 - 3:01pm Maybe. Either way at least…

Maybe. Either way at least McCurry was on-side.

09/08/2018 - 1:16pm Still only scored 33 pts the…

Still only scored 33 pts the entire game. Got 35 pts in only 1.5 qtrs of play this game

09/08/2018 - 1:10pm "But guyz 4realz it's just…

"But guyz 4realz it's just Western"

Pass blocking is... a concern, BUT we couldn't do anything remotely like this last year against the garbage teams! I'm gonna wave my tiny flag goddammit!

09/07/2018 - 10:45pm That... would explain it. 

That... would explain it. 

09/07/2018 - 9:13pm So reading your comments you…

So reading your comments you seem to know an aweful lot about OLine play. I'll be curious to see your thoughts on the OL as the season progresses, especially if changes are made at OT. Mainly looking for glimmers of hope that UM will have a decent OLine one of these seasons!

09/07/2018 - 7:57pm Thanks for the reply! I read…

Thanks for the reply! I read your piece on the speed option and it made a lot of sense. Confirmed part of what I was yelling when the play was run live that Evans was way too close to Shea and Shae didn't force the option defender to commit. 

It's nice to get another take on this stuff. Brian sounds like he knows what he's talking about but it may not be as black and white as he presents it. Anyway, your input is a great addition to these parts and UM online fandom as a whole! 

09/07/2018 - 6:47pm Honest question, then what…

Honest question, then what is Harbaugh doing in the above examples Brian gives where it looks like they're not running spread stuff correctly? 

09/07/2018 - 5:39pm I don't agree he hasn't…

I don't agree he hasn't shown any desire to do so, that's kind of the issue though, he's not fully committed to any one thing. He doesn't go full-on modern spread, it's like a cheap knockoff that once teams figure out what it is it's going to fail completely because you're not doing the stuff you need to do to make it really work.

09/07/2018 - 1:31pm And UM did that quite a bit…

And UM did that quite a bit. You can't have that be your entire offense though.

09/07/2018 - 11:49am Having actual OT's probably…

Having actual OT's probably helps too. But, the lack of such for UM outside of the true/RS freshman falls squarely on the coaches as well, just in a different way.

09/07/2018 - 11:45am Come on man, it clearly says…

Come on man, it clearly says Marcus Ray. Geez!

09/06/2018 - 10:10pm Yes because one position…

Yes because one position totally defines the entirety of the overall performance of the entire OL!! Genius!

09/06/2018 - 9:57pm I mean, they were definitely…

I mean, they were definitely improved vs last year. Not exactly a high bar to beat though.

09/06/2018 - 1:11pm 45 - 13 M

45 - 13 M

09/05/2018 - 7:18pm Better stand next to the…

Better stand next to the servers with a fire extinguisher if things start going downhill for UM in the actual game.

09/05/2018 - 10:26am The guy who is currently 11…

The guy who is currently 11-14 in his career at ISU? You think the booster/big money donors, former players, et al would be cool with firing Harbaugh and going in on an unproven MAC coach who has one winning season at a P5 school? If you think that then I have a bridge I'd like to sell you!

Now, if 2-3 seasons down the road Harbaugh is still struggling to sniff the CCG and Campbell has a couple double digit win seasons and is considered by the college football world to be the best up and coming young coach, then maybe. Even at then, I highly doubt the AD would be able to get enough of the needed people on his side to make such a change. BUT.... maybe.

09/05/2018 - 12:26am If true then I agree. I…

If true then I agree. I thought Fisch was solid, lots of creativity in the pass game. I'll repeat what I said for the last year in agreement, Harbaugh needs to hire the Don Brown of offense and let them run it, and Jim can be the CEO.
