Caught a fish for the first time ever today. Bout to eat some fresh delicious poke. Feeling very zen about our prospects go this game

This is the best rush offense Michigan has brought to East Lansing in a while. MSU hasn’t really faced any impressive run outfits outside of PSU. Even though they shut down PSU except for a couple of busts, Michigan has shown the ability to force busts by opposing defenses on the ground.
I’m a little worried about the passing game, as it was pretty anemic last week against a bad pass defense. But I still think we do enough to win the game.
If we stop MSU on their first drive (ie, survive a chunk of the inevitable scripted plays) I think we win big.

This isn’t fake news. I walked by the diag Sunday morning and it was vandalized.

Theta Xi was the "frat" that camped out on the diag when I was in college. I half-heartedly rushed my freshman year and slept overnight on the diag.
Theta Xi seems to have turned more mainstream since then, and is the one that got in trouble for planning the infamous "hood ratchet"-themed party.

It was already done by Sunday morning when I walked through the diag

He did the exact same thing the game prior. It just shows Chryst is a terrible game manager.
|10/17/2018 - 8:18pm||I think Brian nailed the…||
I think Brian nailed the preview perfectly:
Some competent play calling from Wisconsin on the first drive would have given them 2/3 there.
Wisconsin also did a horrible job of using the amazing run offense to set up the pass. They hardly threw the ball until they were down big, and its easy to imagine some off-schedule play action would have given our pass defense way more trouble than what they actually saw.
I don’t think it would have been a shoot out at all...it would have been a methodical grinding and even shorter game.
All that’s not to say that we didn’t leave points of the board ourselves, and maybe some more competent play calling on our end less forced trickery could have made these adjustments by Wisconsin a wash. But at the end of the day, Wisconsin left 9-21 points on the table and it was a criminally negligent coaching performance by Chryst.

I feel very confident that Wisconsin would have beaten us if they had a competent coach making the in-game decisions.
|10/17/2018 - 5:04pm||Gary has been hurt seemingly…||
Gary has been hurt seemingly his entire collegiate career. Is his draft situation really that comparable to Bosa's?
Gary has the best measurables anybody could ask for...but there are legitimate concerns about his skillset given his relative lack of production.
Is it outside the realm of possibility that he shuts it down this year and focuses on getting healthy, then comes back for his senior year for a chance to play his way to the top of the draft board?
|10/17/2018 - 3:42pm||If we lose to MSU but then…||
If we lose to MSU but then beat PSU and OSU then we win the division, so the MSU game in theory could be largely meaningless outside of (admittedly important) bragging rights.
That being said, a loss to MSU makes a win against OSU feel exponentially less likely, and will just add more evidence to the idea that this team is physically incapable of winning a big road game.

I think this meme is over my head but I like it
|10/16/2018 - 2:38pm||Brian has all the tools in…||
Brian has all the tools in his UFR to do a very in-depth comparison of the offense when it's between the opponent 30-11 yard line and compared to when it's within the 10.
I started to make a diary on doing exactly that last year but it was taking too much time and then we started sucking and I didn't finish it.
Maybe I'll try to do one for the season-to-date once Brian puts up this week's UFR.
|10/16/2018 - 9:52am||Once he got PSU at 4, he…||
Once he got PSU at 4, he should have realized his formula doesn’t pass the eye test. You can’t ignore a loss just because it was unlucky. Needs a major tweak.

I appreciate the sentiment but this is such terrible appropriation of statistics that it bottles the mind

I don't think the failure to finish drives was a lack of luck.

I’ll just say that if the coaching staffs were flipped for this game, we probably would have lost. Can’t believe some of those coaching decisions from Wisconsin

I’m not sold on our passing game. This was possibly Shea’s worst game through the air, and that was against a banged up, bad secondary.

I mean at the end of the day, it's basically like the no politics rule. To my recollection, random GoFundMe's have often been moderated off the board. But it's Brian's site, so if there is a cause he thinks should be promoted, it's fully in his "right" to selectively do so.
I know a lot of people don't love that it feels like a double standard, but I personally have no issue with it.
As an aside, I also think that some people (like chad) who have an issue with this whole situation probably wouldn't give a moment's pause had Ace gotten in a serious car accident or something.
|10/10/2018 - 7:24pm||People can spend their money…||
People can spend their money any way they please, but this site can also choose which funding campaigns to promote.
It's not like Ace is some random mgoblogger...

|10/10/2018 - 12:07pm||You could maybe make the…||
You could maybe make the argument that it is the most important game so far, but it is unlikely to be the most important game of this season. (However, I would argue that 2016 OSU was far more important, as it started us on this murkier trajectory.)
The only argument to make about this being the most important game revolves around momentum for the rest of the season, which is incredibly hard to quantify or qualify. If we win this game and then beat MSU and PSU and OSU, is there any reason to think this game was the major impetus? Alternatively, if we win this game but then lose to MSU, PSU, and OSU, then this game was 100% meaningless.

You can’t really use last year’s stats without mentioning that the game was always going to be determined by the first half. The defense did not do its job against MSU last year.

I'll watch every game and cheer and care way too much, but no way I'll have any confidence in them to win a big game until they actually do so with any regularity.

Very excited to head back to Ann Arbor for this game. Not excited for the amount of money I'm going to have to shell out to attend it.

I almost blew a gasket when Ruiz didn’t snap the ball, but on second thought, rc15 is right...that’s on the rest of the line to move after the dlineman jumped.

Based on that list, there doesn’t seem to be any correlation between quality of defensive line and holding penalties. Seems random.

Said it last week that Maryland is spooky. But this team is night and day at home. Would be more worried if it was a road game.

We’ve played one decent team. If this defense spots Wisconsin, MSU, Penn St, and OSU 14+ points, we’re going to finish with 5 losses.

Wins a win. There are only 4 games left with any potential positive meaning on our schedule, but you have to win the meaningless games to preserve the potential.

That was one bad call. It was possibly the worst call I’ve ever seen. But the penalties as a whole were deserved and a really bad reflection on coaching as they’ve been a constant since he got here
