|12/17/2018 - 10:49am||She has been liking a bunch…||
She has been liking other pro Michigan stuff for over a week now. That was just the latest.
If memory serves, I think she was liking Matt D Tweets.
|12/09/2018 - 10:38am||You know that the offense…||
You know that the offense does indeed go against zone right? Harbaugh was talking about last year fall camp when the ones are going against the ones and only doing what they do. In season the scout teams practice what other teams like to do, as in zone coverage.
As far as your last paragraph, Michigan needs better players on the line to look dominate. It doesn't matter if you have a stud QB and wr if your line is iffy in pass pro.
|11/29/2018 - 11:41pm||Not to mention why are so…||
Not to mention why are so many of them driving around on Vespas and not a 50k+ cars, like you see at most of the schools that are known to have big time booster programs?
The players lifestyles just don't equate to being paid excessive amounts of money ey by boosters.
|11/23/2018 - 1:49am||You can throw a screen to…||
You can throw a screen to him too. It just has to be a lsteral. So, he would need to go backwards at the snap.
|11/23/2018 - 1:45am||The only probably is the…||
The only probably is the line is run blocking, so you have to be careful that they don't get down field further than 3 yards or it's a flag. A play like that has a higher risk of having a lineman down field .
|11/23/2018 - 12:34am||They about to bet it all and…||
They about to bet it all and double up too.
|11/22/2018 - 4:59pm||They actually do a good job…||
They actually do a good job running the mesh at a depth that doesn't really come close to OPI. It's not like other teams that have one guy run a pick that kind of looks like a pattern. Both the crossers on the mess are legit options.
That being said, Brown will break out some zone and combo schemes that will shut this down.
|11/22/2018 - 1:42am||Umm. Literally no fan…||
Umm. Literally no fan thought O'Korn was going to beat OSU last year. Not even sure if O'Korn believed he would win it for michigan.
The year before people did, myself included. However, I did to realize that the big ten would let 3 life long OSU fans to officate the game. If I would have know the refs would get so excited after a few OSU good plays that they could help but celebrate with the players, I would have rethought my prediction.
|11/22/2018 - 1:14am||Yeah. Their secondary has…||
Yeah. Their secondary has graded out as the second worse in the conference according to PFF.
They bad and are going to get abused.
|11/22/2018 - 12:50am||ND was week one and they are…||
ND was week one and they are currently the 3rd ranked defense in the S&p rankings. NW us the 26th ranked defense and it was early in the year when Michigan was just gelling. They spent most the game running their base run plays into a 9 man box, as if the staff was telling the line that "if they can't get these basic plays down the season is over. So get it done." MSU is the 4th ranked team in the S&p and Michigan wore them down, accumulating the most rushing yards verse them this year.
OSU is the 38th ranked defense, which is just slightly better than Wisconsin at 40.
Bottom line, after it started clicking for the offenae they did very well verse the good defenses they have played.
|11/22/2018 - 12:40am||Ummm. Michigan has a top 25…||
Ummm. Michigan has a top 25 s&p offense. The offense is not bad. In fact their current 23rd ranking is the exact rank bama's offense was last year.
|11/22/2018 - 12:30am||Come on man, chase is taking…||
Come on man, chase is taking a step, while not looking down, and the IU linenan starts to move his leg to get up, which goes right to where chase is stepping.
If he did it intentionally, you would think he would be looking down at where he was aiming. You know, so he doesn't miss where the guys leg.
|11/20/2018 - 12:00am||Bluegoinggrey is spot on…||
Bluegoinggrey is spot on. They hammered Wisconsin and PSU when they had to account for Shea. The score didn't show it as much verse MSU, but they wore them down too, largely because they had to account for the QB pulling on read option.
Verse Rutgers and Indiana, they knew Michigan was going to still be run heavy but not really use the qb. That will not be the case this week. Osy will get worn down. They will also be hit with several RPO, which will be used as the third option with the read option game. Which is also something they stopped running as much verse the two recent weaker opponents.
|11/19/2018 - 11:39pm||MSU offense was in the 90s…||
MSU offense was in the 90s for s&p the last time a checked (a few weeks ago). They bad. They really bad.
|11/19/2018 - 11:33pm||They scored 14 in the first…||
They scored 14 in the first half and 14 in the third and 4th quarts. So it was 28-0 going into the fourth.
|11/18/2018 - 1:09am||The scheme was vanilla on…||
The scheme was vanilla on both sides of the ball for the most part. Brown has changed coverages to take away patterns all year, but didn't here and he could made pretty easy adjustments to keep bush in when they motioned the back, or had one of the ends be a spy (which he has this year too), but he didn't .
I don't think he just forgot how to coach so I think he maybe setting up some stuff for next week.
|11/18/2018 - 1:02am||With how the refs have…||
With how the refs have called Michigan for bs penelties while hitting the QB, I don't think you can do much without getting a roughing the passer. The play should have been blown died, the QBs progress was stopped and his knees were getting bent in a very ackward way. You can't have rules that protect QB, making a lot of hits illegal then allow a QB to continue after being in the defenders grasp for several seconds before escaping.
I also disagree with your assessment that the playcalling was cowardly.
|11/18/2018 - 12:48am||Nor do they have the same…||
Nor do they have the same game plan. The playbooks was wide open during the 3 Gane stretch ending with PSU and there was not much rotation of guys that don't normally see a lot of time. The last two weeks was treated more like a scrimmage in regards to the amount of players getting in early in the games.
They are not regressing, they are just not showing much and have different goals the want to accomplish in said ganes.
|11/18/2018 - 12:42am||I mean, Michigan started…||
I mean, Michigan started roatating players in pretty early in both games. Seems like there is a good chance they wanted to just get the win and move on.
|11/18/2018 - 12:24am||They put a few things on…||
They put a few things on tape for next week. But if you think they had the same game plan for this game as they did verse Wisconsin, MSU and PSU, I don't know what to tell you.
They held back with the clear goal of getting to the game with as many guys healthy as possible.
|11/18/2018 - 12:21am||Umm they have played 2 good…||
Umm they have played 2 good defenses this year in PSU and MSU and didn't break 30 in either. Michigan is better than both, by a good margin.
Not to say they can't score 35 but it's not a given.
|11/18/2018 - 12:16am||They put a few more things…||
They put a few more things on tape, a couple RPOs, wrinkle or two on the zone read, and a double pass. But, yeah, they were pretty content to be mostly vanilla.
|11/18/2018 - 12:13am||I'm not sure about that. But…||
I'm not sure about that. But I will say they had a much more vanilla gameplan the last two weeks than the 3 before that. OSU will be hit with exotic formations, misdirection, RPOs, and several different kinds of read options, just like Wisconsin, MSU and PSU did.
OSU defense is gonna die.
|11/17/2018 - 10:48am||What makes that the best…||
What makes that the best logic is state losing didn't knock Michigan out of the championship, which they act like it did.
|11/10/2018 - 11:30pm||You know he took a sack…||
You know he took a sack right? As in, the coaches called a pass on the only 3rd down of the drive, which is the only time you are going to throw in that situation.
He will not lose his redshirt because of this unless both Patterson and Peter's goes down a d if that happens the season is ruined. So, if tgat happens you should be pissed about the seasonsgoing down because the top 3 QBs got hurt again.
|11/10/2018 - 11:19pm||You act like they haven't…||
You act like they haven't picked up a bunch of 3rd and fourth down with single back formation without Mason as the single back. They have picked up several short yardage first downs by running zone reads with higdon or by getting in 13 personal a d running higdon. It was stopped today because the DB made a good play, and probably a little because they didn't have to fear shea keeping.
Simply put, they have been good picking up short yardage in 12 and 13 personnel using higdon.
|11/10/2018 - 11:13pm||The guy's name 18 year old…||
The guy's name 18 year old true freshman.
|11/10/2018 - 11:06pm||I love when people say that…||
I love when people say that they don't hold anything back. They have litterally put more stuff on film ever week since Wisconsin.
Early in the year they were hammering the basic stuff. Once they got it down they started doing the wrinkles and more exotic plays. They even did it this week, despite still playing very vanilla. The first pass to Martin was a RPO that attacked the outside linebacker. They put a few reverses on tape too.
Also, alot of it is subtle stuff that is set up as a tendency breaker. The problem is people like you don't have a firm enough understanding of offense I've football to notice thenew plays.
|11/10/2018 - 10:42pm||I don't actually think they…||
I don't actually think they called one play were Shea had the green light to pull. The defense was selling out to stop the run a bunch and was not worried about Shea keeping because they knew Michigan wouldn't rusk shea getting hurt in that game. And why should they.
This did make it much harder to run though because the whole defense can key on the back and not worry about the QB .
|11/08/2018 - 11:53pm||So wake should jump to…||
So wake should jump to around 21 or 22?
|11/08/2018 - 2:34am||S&p has all 3 in the top 30,…||
S&p has all 3 in the top 30, with msu at 30, PSU at 13 and Wisconsin at 12. Besides Michigan, ND has no other top 30 wins.
|11/08/2018 - 2:29am||Tua is also wearing a knee…||
Tua is also wearing a knee brace and has been gimpy in a few games this year. He may not make it through the year.
|11/08/2018 - 2:23am||If Michigan beat ND at home…||
If Michigan beat ND at home in week one, in a one possession game, then ND played a much tougher schedule and started dominating people - while Michigan continued to win, but often unimpressively, I wouldn't be mad that ND passed Michigan.
|11/08/2018 - 2:17am||Actually cuse was leading…||
Actually cuse was leading when the Clemson qb went down, by double digits, if memory serves. The backup had a very good comeback.
|11/08/2018 - 2:10am||I would argue what us…||
I would argue what us fundamentally essentiall to not act like a win over someone in week one means they are better,or more deserving of he playoffs, after 12 more games.
In other words, it's not about being better in week one. It's about who is peeking at the end of the year. And Michigan is playing much better than ND right now, which is exactly what all the advanced stats show.
|11/08/2018 - 2:02am||Why should it matter if ND…||
Why should it matter if ND is a one list team if your logic is they beat Michigan in week one therefore are better and deserve in before them?
|11/07/2018 - 12:10pm||How do you make the claim…||
How do you make the claim they deserve the 7th rank by using who they beat/ list to using s&p overall rankings, but not acknowledge that the s&p has them ranked at 22?
|11/07/2018 - 11:35am||You are basing Bama housing…||
You are basing Bama housing Michigan on what? I'm guessing them embarrassing an incredibly overrated LSU team. That LSU team has the 74th ranked offensive s&p+ ranking. So, shutting them out should not be looked at as something that proves they completely shut down Michigan's 24th ranked s&p+ offense.
Bama's offense is their best under saban. However, Michigan's defense has a shot at being a top 5 defense of the s&p+ era, while playing 4 top 30 offenses.
Not to say Michigan would win but the game would not be a blowout.
|11/06/2018 - 12:12am||Michigan beat OSU. They lost…||
Michigan beat OSU. They lost to the 3 life long OSU fans that were allowed to officiate the game .
Without the big ten allowing this again, they have next to zero shot.
|11/06/2018 - 12:00am||As hard is it might be to…||
As hard is it might be to believe, he actually had of less athletic looking attempted slide a few weeks ago.
|11/05/2018 - 11:54pm||It reminds me of the fsu…||
It reminds me of the fsu team thecyear after they won the championship. They kept winning games by one possession that should have been comfortable wins because the opponents were bad. Then they ran into a good team in the playoffs and got smoked
|11/05/2018 - 11:34pm||Nebraska is the 92nd rush…||
Nebraska is the 92nd rush defense according to S&p. So, yeah... Them have some success rushing means nothing. They will not run on either Michigan school.
|11/04/2018 - 12:15am||Has he recovered from it…||
Has he recovered from it though? He keeps saying dumb shit like he is still concussed.
Oh, what am I thinking. He was like that before the hit.
|11/02/2018 - 1:57am||Blatently is the correct…||
Blatently is the correct word choice.
|11/02/2018 - 1:31am||He almost certainly has a…||
He almost certainly has a sprained MCL. On his long run last week was running like I did when I played through a sprained MCL in high school. You can get up to close to the same speed straight line with it (although you look a bit hobbled) but latteral quickness and being able to come out of breaks/cuts are really slowed .
I would be surprised if he is healthy enough to really hurt any decent defense a week after going down.
|11/01/2018 - 1:03am||"You are arguing about facts…||
"You are arguing about facts and, facts don't care about your feelings." LMAO.
|11/01/2018 - 12:23am||Michigan has played 2 top 30…||
Michigan has played 2 top 30 offenses according to S&P+ and neither was ND. However, ND is just outside of it.
As far as Wisconsin, they dropped to 10 after last week, whereas PSU is 22.
|10/31/2018 - 4:26pm||In no situation will you…||
In no situation will you ever see both bush and Hudson spying Mcsorley.
The viper is used to lock down their TE, so when they say it should always be bush doing it with the Will manned up on the back. I could possibly see bush manned on the back and the Will in spy, in some situations. However, when they spy, it will only be with one guy.
Moreover, the dt have done a good job with being there when the QB has to step up.
|10/30/2018 - 4:42pm||It's how many deep safeties…||
It's how many deep safeties you have. If you watched the long mcsorley run last weekend, Iowa was in cover 0. As in no saftey was deep, they were in man close to the line. Cover 1 is what Michigan has run the majority of the time the last 2 years, with one safety deep and the other in the box (typically in man on a slot). Finally, you have cover 2 safties with both out of the box, usually 10-12 yards deep. Typically, this means they both will have deep half responsiblites.
|10/27/2018 - 11:09am||There is a difference though…||
There is a difference though, Wisconsin was a very good team last year and Iowa beat OSU in a game that was out of character. Purdues offense did not play out of their minds last week, they are actually #10 in offensive s&p+. They are good at explosive plays, while MSU defense is in the bottom half in the country at not giving up explosive play.
Moreover, as a team, they are ranked 26 in s&p, whereas MSU is 42 (and has been steadily dropping after the preseason expectations have been removed). So, despite 3 early loses, Purdue is actually a good team. They just couldn't get out of their own way verse NW, week one. Then it carried over two Eastern Michigan, in a game that Purdue was hit with some very bad penilties that really affected the outcome .
Purdue may have a letdown game. However, this isn't the normal situation where a team had a game will above their normal capabilities to get an upset, and now will come back down to earth. I actually think it's more likely that the beatdown to OSU will be the game to get them over the hump.
