Not anymore-- Sold off their hockey division to Bauer a couple of years ago...

The point.

To be fair, I don't think anyone ever feared Braxton Miller or Joe Burrows...

JT Barrett never was THE reason OSU beat UM...

Martell? lol

 

Dwayne Haskins was DEFINITELY the best of that group. And will more than likely be the best QB the Buckeyes have seen come through that program in awhile... 

12/02/2018 - 1:11am Amen.

Amen.

12/01/2018 - 8:40pm I mean, 4WR sets are/were…

I mean, 4WR sets are/were used— it’s not like Michigan was 100% pro-set. Part of the ‘offensive development’ has also been that we don’t have the bodies to run as many of the sets UGA and Alabama used. Michigan’s Receiver depth is definitely not even close to those two teams. Be content with the growth of where Michigan is, and still expect more down the road. 

12/01/2018 - 8:25pm Okay. 

Thanks for your, uh,…

Okay. 

Thanks for your, uh, opinion, man. 

12/01/2018 - 4:43pm You need a break from…

You need a break from football. Michigan just essentially rebuilt overnight when Harbaugh arrived. 3/4 seasons with 10 wins. He definitely got Michigan “back” to their norm. In reality, each team has gotten better.

2015 < 2016 < 2017 < 2018. 

Obviously the record wasn’t as great from ‘17 to ‘16, but the team (w/ a QB) seemed a lot better.

Is this official or just another worthless thread?

Yeah, one is pure Michi-fan and the other went to Michigan because his buddies did and jumped into the ‘fandom’. I’m sorry, but if you did not play on the team, you have zero leg to stand on claiming they (the team) “needs to apologize” gtfo.

11/29/2018 - 4:14pm Not to thread-jack [as I…

Not to thread-jack [as I possibly am doing], but do we have a spot to move Jay Harbaugh to and bring Mike Hart in as the RB's coach? As far as I understand it now, it looks like this on the offensive coaching side: 

Passing Game Coordinator / QB's - Pep Hamilton

WR Coach/ Assistant OC(?) - Greg McElwain

RB Coach / Special Teams - Jay Harbaugh

TE Coach - Sherrone Moore

OL - Ed Warinner 

If Pep Moves on (as discussed) Could we move QB's back to Jim, PGC to McElwain, Jay specifically to Special Teams and Add Hart on the offensive side of the ball to replace Jay? 

11/29/2018 - 4:07pm No Thanks. I'd rather keep…

No Thanks. I'd rather keep Pep than go after Tee Martin. 

Doesn't Martin HATE Michigan too? Wasn't he part of the Peyton piss-fest? 

11/29/2018 - 4:07pm I'd almost argue that this…

I'd almost argue that this not only offsets the decision to keep Drevno, however, also should help mask that OL. Expect them to throw the ball 8-12 times more per game, easily. Primarily out of the Shotgun... some Pistol formations? I haven't watched much of TTU this year. 

11/29/2018 - 4:03pm I'm not in the 'Kliff-krowd'…

I'm not in the 'Kliff-krowd', but If there has to be a change at the OC position, ANY chance we look at Satterfield with Appalachian State? On top of that, ANY chance he leaves a HC position at his Alma Mater for an OC position at Michigan? I highly doubt it.  

11/29/2018 - 4:00pm Dead on. I also don't…

Dead on. I also don't believe we truly have the dept that OSU has. Their Receiver group is far deeper than ours. The 1 and 2 are probably comparable, but then when OSU goes to 4-wide sets, their 4 are "superior" to our 4. On top of that, I think their O-Line has better "talent", not neccesarily are they a better unit on scheme, more so on the raw talent vs what we have being lesser (?) Talent and rely more on the scheme and execution to level that off. On the other hand, I could be entirely incorrect on that. 

11/29/2018 - 3:40pm I truly believe OL is the…

I truly believe OL is the reason we aren't passing as much as we expected Harbaugh to. Sure, they are going to be a run-based offense, but with that said, I think we all expected to be dropping PA-dimes all over. I think OL is the reason we aren't. Do I think we'll get there? Sure hope so with development, but recruiting needs to hit more on the more "polished" OL (Specifically T) prospects. 

11/29/2018 - 3:34pm Rich Rod may never get…

Rich Rod may never get another P5 Gig anywhere whether HC or OC; he's got some serious baggage now. 

11/29/2018 - 3:27pm Wow. That is a HUGE Get for…

Wow. That is a HUGE Get for them. Tee Martin < Kliff Slingsbury. 

I hate USC, but this should help them significantly. 

11/29/2018 - 8:45am I want Northwestern to win…

I want Northwestern to win extremely bad. Validates our close loss to them... I just don’t see Fitzgerald having the horses to compete. No one saw Purdue either, so maybe? 

As for Oklahoma, I’m torn. I want them to win to keep Ohio State out, but I also think I want Michigan to get to the Rose Bowl. 

11/29/2018 - 8:32am No.

 

 

and do we even…

No.

 

 

and do we even want that? I mean, I guess on one hand it’s exposure, top-4 team, on the other, it assures we play Alabama who, I personally, would not want this team to play and have a Saban drop 50-60+ on us with over a month to plan.

11/29/2018 - 5:31am For his play. 

Mid Runyan…

For his play. 

Is Runyan the reason we lost to Notre Dame? 

Good talk. 

11/28/2018 - 8:18pm Did I say that the reason we…

Did I say that the reason we lost was strictly due to the block? No. I said that is one of the only players that (again in my opinion, keyboard warrior) deserve that type of criticism. 

11/28/2018 - 8:05pm Did he though? The only…

Did he though? The only players that deserve that type of criticism, I think, are Crable (late hit @OSU ‘06/ The horror missed block ‘07) and Boren for being a dick while exiting the program. 

11/28/2018 - 7:02pm Wait for this to be a Les…

Wait for this to be a Les Miles-esque situation. Someone leaked it premature, Brohm had to back peddle, and now Louisville May have shot themselves in the foot not preparing for it. 

11/28/2018 - 5:27pm We already are— Patterson…

We already are— Patterson chose us as a destination due to having that shot to be a playoff team. We haven’t had a decade advantage recruiting like OSU has, not to mention Meyer is a great recruiter. Not only have we made up ground since the Carr/Rich Rod days, but  we’ve cut that “advantage” nearly in half. 

Since day one, I’ve said Harbaugh should be given 2-full recruiting cycles (8-years). 

11/28/2018 - 5:13pm That’s insane. What about…

That’s insane. What about the 12-1 Stanford team in 2010? They would have made the playoff and been a threat to any team that year. Michigan can [and will] be “elite” without sacrificing standards.

Let’s tackle a Rose Bowl appearance and PAC-12 opponent. 

Take steps. Let Ohio state play Alabama and get ROLLED. Then we can at least have some happy outcome to start 2019.

EDIT: Quick Google search shows Arkansas State bet them in their bowl game in 2016. Disregard.

You’re right. Had Urban ever faced Rich Rod, he definitely wouldn’t have torched him. Bring back the 49-7 beat downs Tressel gave Rich Rod. Much better than 62-39. Urban ran it up at the end because he is that arrogant. The score looks a lot worse than the entire game went... 19-24 at half, I’d have taken thinking our D would adjust at half time.

11/25/2018 - 10:21am Why are we upset with the…

Why are we upset with the offense? Michigan put up 39 points. Same as 2006. The lack of big defensive plays are what killed them in The Game, not their offense. 

11/24/2018 - 6:21pm Poor Harbaugh. 2016 was our…

Poor Harbaugh. 2016 was our shot. We couldn’t capitalize. Here we are 0-4 under Harbaugh. Another class of Seniors with no wins against Ohio State. Who knows anymore.

I honestly don’t think Urban is done. This game will be closer than expected. 

27-21 Michigan.

Can/does OSU have the ability to play at that pace? I’m not sure. I agree that they are fast, but are they going to get 70+ offensive snaps in? I can’t see them passing 50 or more snaps, while rushing 20~ish times.

Or hard to measure when #5 plays a team significantly worse than Indiana. 

11/14/2018 - 8:40am They've (Alabama)…

They've (Alabama) steamrolled everyone, sure. But if they lose to Georgia, they will have lost to a team that lost to LSU, who Alabama beat 29-0, and the SEC is the best Conference in football-- including the NFL. Alabama would beat the Buffalo Bills in the Super Bowl.

Also the Better "Loss"...#2/#3 Notre Dame vs #4/#5 Georgia (Should Alabama lose to UGA)

If it were Alabama with Hurts instead of Tua, than yes. Let's not get too arrogant with how good our D is... one injury could change ALL of that-- on either side. 

Just win, baby.

C'mon. We lost to ND HEAD-to-HEAD, let it go. Top-4, sure. But to claim we should be ahead of them is quite laughable. We lost to them. 12-1 v 12-0 is still a "-1" to the team that is 12-0. IF/WHEN Notre Dame loses a game, then we'll be ranked ahead. Go Orange!!

I agree with 66.6% of your assessment. BC may be fairly decent. Let's see Saturday night.

Someone HIGHLY underrated him. He has an NFL father. Was a very good HS player in the state of FL. I could have seen him as a 200-level (170's-180's) for ESPN's recruiting rankings, but 312 outside the top-300 is a BAD miss on the recruiting services' parts.
