He remained 9 but other guys fell or came on the list. Mathis from MSU went from 7 to off the list and Tag went from off the list to 8 (that one I don't get why he'd be above Cade, though).
But, Cade is currently 9th out of 24 guys. Not bad.
|06/01/2018 - 2:49pm||He’s not even gonna be the||
He’s not even gonna be the best QB in the B1G. McSorely (and possibly Patterson and the OSU guy) will have better stats and ply this year.
|05/29/2018 - 8:32pm||I tire of the big game||
I tire of the big game narrative.
Harbaugh has bested Penn State.
Harbaugh has beaten Michigan State.
Harbaugh has beaten Wisconsin.
The only team he hasn’t beaten is Ohio State. And he’ll get it.
It’s ridiculous the narrative going around here that Harbaugh is some terrible coach now.

He had a good freshman year and sucked every year after that.

Here Jerry, it's easy when you're not an idiot:
WHAT OFFENSE IS HE GOING TO RUN WITH SHEA, A SPREAD GUY?!?!
It's not like Shea has never taken a snap under center. His QB coach/guru in HS made him take plenty of snaps under center. Michigan is going to run a pro style as it always had with RPO elements. I'd assume more than what they did last year.
WHO'S CALLING THE PLAYS?!?!
Harbaugh has the final say on playcalling, as usual.
THEY'VE HAD HOW MANY CO-OFFENSIVE COORDINATORS?!?!
Well, by title, none. Drevno was offensive coordinator. Jedd Fisch and Pep Hamilton are/were passing game coordinators. Frey was run game coordinator.
WHO'S DOING WHAT?!?!
Well I assume you just mean the offense, so:
Jim Harbaugh: HC. Has the final say on all play calling, which has been the stsus quo since he was at Stanford a decade ago. It's actually a system several teams implement. Urban has had co-offensive and co-defensive coordinators. I believe the current Super Bowl Champion Eagles has a similar hierarchy.
Pep Hamilton: Passing Game Coordinator/QB coach. He calls passing plays to Jim and coaches the quarterbacks.
Jim McElwain: WR coach. He coaches the wide recievers.
Sherrone Moore: TE coach. He coaches the tight ends.
Ed Warinner: OL coach. He coaches the offensive line.
Jay Harbaugh: RB coach. He coaches the running backs.
"Michigan has been a mess at quarterback since 2015"
How were they a mess in 2015? Jake Ruddock was exceptional as the starting QB that year. Speight was good up until Iowa in 2016. Last season is the only time you could really point your finger. And that's after Speight broke his back, O'Korn just never had it, and Peters got concussed.
|05/06/2018 - 6:12pm||JBB at LT is honestly||
JBB at LT is honestly terrifying. He can pass block to save his life, so we’ll see if Warinner is the best OL coach in the country or not.

Shea, having possibly the best OL coach in the country, having a real life WR coach, the defense always being championship caliber.
Get the offense to average this year, which I think is certainly possible with Shea, and were battling for the playoffs again.

I mean what happened in Detroit is what’s happening in Chicago.
They signed their core of the glory days to long term deals and now those players are old and not as effective anymore. And Datsyuk leaving didn’t help either.
I’d wait to see what he can do when he gets some extra cap space to work with. Unfortunately Zett still has 4 years left and Nielsen has 5.

Already posted yesterday and was deleted.
He coached them. He was their position coach.
Urban used Tebow for an Ohio State recruiting graphic before too.
In conclusion before this also gets deleted, it’s not a big deal.

They’re not going to fire him one year removed from a Touney appearance unless something comes out from the whole Lynch thing on him.

It’s gonna be McElwain or Pep, and if I were betting money, I’d bet it on McElwain

Don’t know where it started but Sam is saying more staff shuffling is coming and that 247 users will “be more festive”.
So that tells me that either Tim or Pep are bolting. And since this Vandy connection has emerged I think it’s Drevno leaving. Apparently his kid is there now.
|02/22/2018 - 11:28pm||Because he recruited Ohio for||
Because he recruited Ohio for OSU and OSU fans think he just had it easy.
I think he’d be dynamite with Al Washington in Ohio.
|02/22/2018 - 11:06pm||Webb is saying more staff||
Webb is saying more staff change is coming so it makes sense.
Warinner being the OL coach makes next season a lot more excitable tho. I have nothing against Drev but EW is possibly the best OL coach in the country next to the Georgia guy

And Pep is the primary recruiter on Harrod
|02/19/2018 - 8:04pm||Why because you desperately||
Why because you desperately wanted Drevno and Pep gone that you believed anything that said they were out? Get over it.
Didn’t hear anyone complain about Drevno in 2015 and 2016.
|02/16/2018 - 3:25pm||Not even 9. Remember Gentry||
Not even 9. Remember Gentry scores some as a TE. And Chris Evans scored on a pass from Peters I remember.
I honestly can’t remember the TD passes to WRs after Black got hurt. I know DPJ scored and got it taken away somehow.

How is it unbelievably shorty, again?
|02/16/2018 - 3:20pm||Comparing McElwain to GERG is||
Comparing McElwain to GERG is laughable.
McElwain is 4 years removed from success at CSU and Bama. GERG was a decade plus removed from his successes when Michigan hire him.(Not gonna count him being co-DC at Texas when they got shredded a lot and VY bailed them out, and Gene Chizik was the other co-DC).
What Robinson did to Syracuse is nothing to what McElwain did to Florida.

Hollis, Dantonio, Izzo, and everyone else in the MSU administration are a bunch of cowards.

Play in the Mountain West so they do play BOise every year.
His first year at CSU they beat Colorado and Hawaii and onthing much else.
2013 they got destroyed by Alabama. But most their other games they scored around 30 points and lost because the other team scored like 40. They beat Washington State in their bowl game.
2014 they beat Colorado again and Boston College.
|02/15/2018 - 2:31pm||2012: 106
|02/15/2018 - 1:34pm||Sorry, but Brian is||
Sorry, but Brian is wrong.
McElwain spent 18 years coaching WRs before he became an OC. He’s going to be coaching WRs here while (possibly) being OC. I don’t see the problem with it honestly.
He was a successful OC at Fresno State in 2007 with the 37th ranked offense in the country which is why Saban hired him in the first place after Major Applewhite failed.
Unlike Nuss and Kiffin, McElwain wasn’t pushed out. Saban liked him as his coordinator. He, Saban, and Smart helped build the Bama machine.
Brian simply just doesn’t like him because of how he reacted to the shark thing.
Alls I’m gonna say is this for people comparing McElwain and Nussmeier:
McElwain was a success at Fresno State. McElwain was a success at Alabama. McElwain was a success at Colorado State. McElwain was a failure at Florida.
Nuss was a success at Alabama. Nuss was a failure at Michigan. Nuss was a failure at Florida.
Nuss’ offenses at Washington:
Big jump his last season there. I believe Sark was the HC.
His offenses at Bama:
2014 Michigan: 115
McElwain at Alabama:
Bama’s offense in 2007 led by Applewhite I believe was 62.

I like/respect UMBig11, but he’s been wrong a lot lately.
I’ll wait til the official announcement comes. But he’d be an upgrade calling plays over Drevno.
And Drevno solely coaching the OL with advice from Warinner would be make me so excited for the season.

Sam is reportedly saying that he agreed this morning though, but he hasn’t confirmed yet.

Chris Partridge already took the RC title didn’t he?
|02/12/2018 - 3:31pm||I think Mac and Morton are||
I think Mac and Morton are the ones that are being seriously considered. Feldman didn't really mention anything about Cameron.
|02/12/2018 - 3:30pm||He was an NFL OC for one||
He was an NFL OC for one year, which was last year. He wen't from USC OC to 49ers WR coach, then Sainsts WR coach.
Honestly wouldn't be surprised if he, or anyone being seriously considered for that job, are told he'll be the next OC when Drev/Pep move on.
|02/12/2018 - 12:58pm||He also worked under Harbaugh||
He also worked under Harbaugh at USD and San Francisco. So they’re familiar with each other, he’s probably stay more than a year unlike McElwain, has Cali connections for his time at USC.
Honestly I’d hire him over Mac.
|02/12/2018 - 11:29am||1 good hire?
1 good hire?
Chris Partridge is great
Don Brown is great (because, y’know, he was hired by Harbaugh)
Zordich is a great DBs coach
Rice apparently thought Brian Smith was good enough to offer him a promotion
Ty Wheatley was our best recruiter after Partridge
DJ Durkin was good til the Ohio State game and Maryland hired him
Greg Jackson was good and the NFL scooped him up after one year
Jedd was a good hire
JayBaugh has been fine. Solid recruiter and was pretty good as TE coach
Mattison is the Hoke holdover you’re thinking of
Frey didn’t mesh but is still a good coach
Pep and Drev, sure. I’ll give you those two I guess.
Obviously the jury is still out on Washington and Moore and whoever the 10th assistant will be. But Moore and Washington both come in with very good recruiting reputations.
So yeah. Harbaugh has made good hire after good hire. But no one trusts him anymore because they think Pep and Drevno killed the offense (Drevno was still the OC in 15 and 16, guys)
|02/12/2018 - 9:55am||Gwen left last year when Sean||
Gwen left last year when Sean McGee and others joined.
Partridge becoming recruiting coordinator is a very wise move.
|02/11/2018 - 1:28am||IIRC he is still Saban’s||
IIRC he is still Saban’s longest serving OC at Bama during his whole tenure there.
2007: Major Applewhite
2016: Sark (title game)
2017: Brian Daboll
2018: Mike Locksley
Saban pushed Nuss and Kiffin out the door. He didn’t do that with Mac.

You really gonna compare Hoke to Harbaugh?
My God. This fan base can be the absolute worst sometimes.

Really don’t get why people have a problem with him getting hired.
Yeah he flames out at UF. So did Muschamp. And he just beat Harbaugh.
Mac wouldn’t be calling plays. And even if he was, he was a good OC at Bama and had success at CSU and ran a good offense there too.
Him being a WR coach and out there recruiting for M would be a good thing. If he eventually wound up as OC that’d be fine too.

Sounds like he was gonna be the Don Brown type hire.
No doubt he’s of joined up if it was for OC though.
What kind of offense does he run?
