Agree 100% with your first sentence and 0% with your second.

10/17/2018 - 10:16am Moreover, you have to expect…

Moreover, you have to expect sound football from the FS.  If you try to lob one over LB to the H running vertical, the FS can defend that.

10/17/2018 - 10:13am Yes, sorry, the H (McKeon)…

Yes, sorry, the H (McKeon) is who I meant.

10/16/2018 - 9:20pm Sorry but the better team…

Sorry but the better team did not win in 2015 or 2017. 

10/16/2018 - 12:48pm Well, I wasn't thinking…

Well, I wasn't thinking about it but now I'm going to stop reading board posts until Monday.

10/16/2018 - 11:26am I like it.

TE could just…

I like it.

TE could just run to the flat.  If LB runs with TE, QB runs. If LB attacks QB, easy throw to uncovered TE.  This could be the 2018 version of "QB Oh Noes."

"It doesn’t leave much room for good questions that can get useful answers."

Mission accomplished as far as a HC is concerned.

10/15/2018 - 9:02am "It is that time once again…

"It is that time once again for..."

...shitty thread titles.

EDIT: Also, shame on you for not replying or posting somewhere in the thread and, combined with points being frozen, thus making it impossible for me to neg you in any kind of useful fashion.

As a former coach, this. 

Everyone thinks laces out is important (and it is), but what's more important is a consistent angle of the football when it is spotted. This facilitates consistent contact and rotation of the football. Of course, the kicker has to be consistent, too.  My point is that it may be Nordin, it may be the holder, or it may be a combination.

10/12/2018 - 11:45am Angelique asks the dumbest…

Angelique asks the dumbest questions at pressers and doesn't know football. Other than that she's a great reporter.

10/12/2018 - 11:16am Uh...Nassar and the MSU…

Uh...Nassar and the MSU Women's Gymnastics Coach.  Sandusky and Paterno.  Art Briles and whoever their AD was at the time.

Currently, maybe none that we know about.  I would say Meyer and Smith are worse, though.

10/11/2018 - 12:09pm Not a dumb idea at all b/c…

Not a dumb idea at all b/c we might need an emergency DT.  However, Hudson would be the first OT in if Runyan or JBB go down, so there's no way we could practice Hudson at DT.  Any other OL we have couldn't get up to speed quickly enough and would be a worse option than any other DL reserve.

10/10/2018 - 10:18pm Against this OL, any snaps…

Against this OL, any snaps he can give us--even just a handful--are a big positive.

Might be good to put him out there in a few 3rd and long situations. It's less likely he would suffer an injury setback, he's a very good interior pass rusher, and Dwumfor's probably out this week.

10/10/2018 - 10:06pm Uh...2017 is the previous…

Uh...2017 is the previous off-season. 2018 Spring was this past off-season.

10/09/2018 - 10:08pm If you watched his HS film…

If you watched his HS film you aren't surprised he's successful.  I am surprised he's contributing his first year, but the talent jumps out on his HS film.

10/09/2018 - 9:47pm That one, plus Rod saying, …

That one, plus Rod saying, "That's how you get (Adam) Eaton out."

10/09/2018 - 10:17am Agree.  Valenti thinks the…

Agree.  Valenti thinks the MSU spiral is due to MSU, when it's really b/c these two guys named Harbaugh and Franklin showed up (the latter aided by softening of PSU penalties).  Dantonio started his "run" in 2010, which was  Rodriguez's last year, and Sandusky was indicted in 2009.  Dantonio's run really ended in 2015.  Harbaugh started that year and Franklin started in 2014.  Coincidence? I think not.

Healthy and happy vibrations coming your way, Ace.  All the best.

10/02/2018 - 10:48pm No, axes (plural). One…

No, axes (plural). One labeled "Fuck Michigan;" the other, "Fuck Harbaugh."

Just sayin'.

10/02/2018 - 4:11pm Yeah, the axes might as well…

Yeah, the axes might as well be labeled:  "Fuck Michigan/Fuck Harbaugh"

09/29/2018 - 11:55pm This game was close almost…

This game was close almost entirely due to our penalties.

That, and our inability to score TDs on two 3rd Q drives on which we had first and goal.  A good offense gets 14 points and we got 6.

09/26/2018 - 3:43pm Cosign.

Cosign.

After defending a lot of wing-T in my day, the Down play was the least of my concerns.

09/23/2018 - 8:45am No more non-midwest schools…

No more non-midwest schools. In fact, kick out all the non-midwest schools.  Goodbye to everyone added since Penn State (who shouldn't even have a football program due to the Sandusky scandal).

Go back to the actual 10 schools. No divisions. Nine conference games means you play everyone.  If there's a tie, there's co-champs.  I'd rather not have a conference chapmionship game, but if you feel it necessary for money and playoff rankings, so be it.

Also, get off lawn.

 

09/19/2018 - 7:25am If that's sarcasm, well done…

If that's sarcasm, well done.  If not, you couldn't be more incorrect.

09/18/2018 - 3:06pm Still pissed at throwing 35…

Still pissed at throwing 35 times against MSU in a monsoon during a one-score game.

And yet, b/c of hang time and archaic punt formations, is only #39 in net punting.

09/13/2018 - 2:01pm Uh, I don't know the NCAA…

Uh, I don't know the NCAA rules but, being a Michigan fan whose brain was recording stimuli as recall-able memories in 2009-2010, I'm a little sensitive around the issue of practice hours.  Therefore, does anyone know if these are countable hours:

"[H]e (Ruiz) came in today between classes and met with me for 45 minutes. And we went through a whole series of plays for this game..."

09/12/2018 - 11:36pm Kinda like he struggled to…

Kinda like he struggled to put up numbers at LSU, in fact.

Maybe it's me, but I didn't find anything particularly interesting in the article.

09/10/2018 - 1:48pm +1 for not using "obvi"

09/08/2018 - 6:07pm Most successful passing…

Most successful passing teams ever are the Air Raid offenses, so your argument, "a good pass game is the child of a great run game," is incorrect.

09/06/2018 - 11:21pm Well if you want a cold dose…

Well if you want a cold dose of reality, listen to Doug Skene's breakdown from Saturday's game at rivals (not paywalled, either). Do NOT, however, listen to it if you are easily depressed or want to stay out of the BPONE.

I eagerly clicked on the thread thinking someone with coaching and/or playing knowledge broke down the film and graded his performance.

Then I got here and read with extreme disappointment.

09/03/2018 - 10:08pm Apologize and defend…

Apologize and defend yourself--there's a winning strategy.

As if ANYONE thinks Michigan doesn't need to step its game up.

And yet about 20 months ago "unprepared and mismanaged" is exactly how the fanbase regarded Beilein and called for his head after the trip to Illinois.

09/03/2018 - 3:49pm You know more about OL play…

You know more about OL play and technique than I do, but 75 did not appear to have anywhere near the requisite athleticism to play tackle.

09/01/2018 - 7:14am How many guys/teams are…

How many guys/teams are going to fair catch a kickoff inside the 25? I still think the strategy is to Foug it. At least give yourself a chance at winning that field position battle.

I am 8 hours late reading the article which means I am 7 hours and 59 minutes late to seeing this man's Twitter character assassination by osu fans.

Official site teasing the all whites pretty much guarantees they're wearing something else.

And they did white jersey, maize pants at Penn State last year.

I expect blue pants with either maize or white jersey. I shudder at the prospect, but I think they're going to try to do something out of the ordinary.

Not only Michigan, but how many times (period) has a ranked team playing a home night game lost by 21+?

One of the few moments where I wish WD was around.

Though there is no evidence, I strongly believe that Brandon was indirectly referring to Harbaugh specifically when, at Hoke's announcement presser, Brandon spoke of "prima donna coaches." 

I believe Brandon hired Hoke because of ego. I believe Brandon wanted to be the face of the athletic department and with Harbaugh there would've been no way.  With a relatively unknown like Hoke, Brandon was the most prominent figure.

Marketing expert? Anything but.  That was his claim and analyzing his marketing decisions shows that he is an absolutely terrible marketer.

08/12/2018 - 9:37am Actually what happened (as…

Actually what happened (as detailed in the book) was the Board of Regents essentially told MSC, "It's okay, we know Brandon's your guy and he's qualified, just go ahead and hire him."  But she demanded that the search be "above board" and use a search committee.  When their recommendation came back that Brandon was their least preferred choice among the finalists, she went ahead and hired him anyway.  Nice waste of University funds, there Mary Sue.  Oh, and also a horrendous hire, perhaps one of the worst in the history of Michigan Athletics.
