And let's face it if win the rest of our games except one, and win the Big Ten...we would be pretty damn happy.  Well, the rational fans.  I suppose a vocal minority is always going to bitch about something.

I love the optimism guys, keep it up.

Hell, have Higdon and Evans in the backfield and run it.  Would be fun seeing a DE try to decide which if those 3 to attack.

The bears ran a nice play tonight.  A zone read with an inside shovel pass to a TE.   Would be fun to see this given our stable if blocky/catchy types.

We did just play two really bad teams though...

 

I agree the sky isnt falling, but we also dont have a top 40 offense.

09/16/2018 - 10:34pm Agreed.  Off the top of my…

Agreed.  Off the top of my head I dont recall Shea missing any throws when he has had time.  He places it right on the money with more "zip" than Peter's or OKorn showed last year.

My only knocks on Shea is sometimes it feels like he holds onto the ball just a second too long.  Also, sometimes he tries too hard to make plays, resulting in bad plays.  I think Oline problems cause the latter.

I think we had a total of 1 yesterday.

OP we remember.  The "out hit us" meme has been used ad nauseam any time Scott Frost is mentioned.

This one was ridiculous.  Defender tried to pull up, but his teammate was dragging Haskins down from behind.  Really hard to pull up or move away that quick.  It was bang bang.

09/15/2018 - 9:32pm Ugh.  Thanks for the…

Ugh.  Thanks for the reminder.

09/15/2018 - 8:58pm Some sort of leg injury. …

Some sort of leg injury.  They showed his during warm ups and seemed to have difficulty making cuts, and he was wincing a little.

 

 

09/15/2018 - 8:57pm There was a time late in the…

There was a time late in the 3rd I believe when Shea slid and someone made contact with his helmet.  I was surprised it didnt bring out a penalty or review.  Broadcast didnt even replay it.

09/15/2018 - 8:55pm Wilson looks like he hits…

Wilson looks like he hits the hole harder, even when he hesitates to set up blockers.  He just looks more powerful.

 

Evans also badly missed a blitz pickup in the 1st half.

09/15/2018 - 8:52pm I'm missing Eubanks.  I saw…

I'm missing Eubanks.  I saw him out there today, but IIRC he has yet to catch a pass this year.  He looked so good prior to the injury last year.

09/15/2018 - 8:47pm And the counter toss they…

And the counter toss they ran on 3rd and short.  Much better than watching Evan's run into the line for no gain again.

09/15/2018 - 7:24pm This is more META than…

This is more META than coaching but:  I think we need to start a GoFundMe for Brian having to do the UFR this week.  That was an awful, boring, frustrating slog of a game.  I do not envy those who have to rewatch it again.

09/15/2018 - 6:22pm Nope.  They called DPI on us…

Nope.  They called DPI on us when the ball landed 8 yards out of bounds.

09/15/2018 - 5:49pm Too many injuries today. :(

Too many injuries today. :(

I didn't, but I got ripped apart and labeled as "condescending" last time I talked about being driven during college.

 

I did 8am classes and worked 20-30 hours a week. I got drunk once in awhile, sure.  But I had to work my ass off to eat and have a roof over my head.

Is a "philly special" like a "Cleveland steamer"?

09/12/2018 - 9:25pm Something in between.  I…

Something in between.  I find it impossible to think we cant rep some intermediate (10-20 yard) passes and run blocking without emptying the trick book.  Its basic stuff any other team runs, but for some reason we dont hVe in our repertoire 

09/12/2018 - 10:25am Would we be better if we had…

Would we be better if we had cryogenically frozen Fitz Crislers head and allowed him to continue coaching to this day?

09/12/2018 - 10:23am We didnt look great by any…

We didnt look great by any stretch of the imagination. But had our defense not spotted them a quick 14 points, I dont think people would be panicking nearly as much.

You can tell hes done that a time or two

I just checked the weather channel.  They didnt say anything about snow in today's forecast.

09/10/2018 - 10:12am Is it really a big surprise?…

Is it really a big surprise?  A few days ago someone made a post that balls were dropping in our favor.  Last night a poster commented an expert was suggesting another committment would occur today, followed by hypothesis it was Giles.

Why is your beer not in hand?  Never had one kicked over, because I never put one down.

09/07/2018 - 10:03pm I'm wondering if this was…

I'm wondering if this was the case.  Maybe he gave it a go vs. Nd because of the importance of the game.  Now that we have a lull in the schedule this would be a good time for minor surgery, to return for the meat of our schedule

Possibly now that we have OT.  I'm surprised Denard didnt top that in any games.

I heard he is writing his Eminem diss tape.

09/06/2018 - 12:29pm I love these.  Plesse keep…

I love these.  Plesse keep them up!  

 

At 2:17, it seems like the line should have slid protection to the right.  Even though you have 2 LBs who look like they might blitz, one of them is clearly farther from the LOS and farther outside.  I would think if they are going to "guess" who to block, it should be the guys closer to the LOS first and foremost, no?

09/05/2018 - 2:47pm I mean, this was the exact…

I mean, this was the exact same thing McElwain said during Spring camp interviews. I remember it being discussed here.  He is not distancing himself from the ND game, he is doubling down on what he said before the season started.

09/05/2018 - 2:44pm We need more steel in our…

We need more steel in our spine than those teams.

09/05/2018 - 12:38am Run 5 wide out of the…

Run 5 wide out of the shotgun.  Take as many defenders and possible blitzers out of the box.  Shotgun gives the QB the ability to see everyone coming at him.  Run draws, but scrap play action and anything that causes Shea to turn his back to the defense.

If nobody is open, roll out and chuck it out of bounds and live for another down.

We were firing on 8 cylinders...problem is UofM has a V12 

09/04/2018 - 9:41pm I dont see many blaming…

I dont see many blaming Runyan.  I see most blaming tye coaches for poor recruiting at the OT position, and for placing Runyan in a position he could not adequately perform.

09/03/2018 - 4:06pm Braylon was "trash" his…

Braylon was "trash" his first few years.  If it wasnt for his dad  I doubt Lloyd Carr would have given him a leash as long as he did.  Braylon was able to focus and put it together for 1.5 years.  

09/03/2018 - 12:36am No.  Every year people start…

No.  Every year people start rumors that UofM is holding onto something, saving it for OSU or MSU.  Those goes back to the Lloyd Carr days.

 

Except for Carrs final game vs. Florida, none of these conspiracy theories have ever come to fruition.

 

We are not "saving" anything.  We assuredly are not losing games over the possibility of saving a play or two against MSU.  That is ludicrous. Dont get your hopes up.

09/02/2018 - 8:39pm Yes we will.  We have a few…

Yes we will.  We have a few games to show improvement.  Big Ten Championship is still in reach, though doesnt seem likely now.  

We have a couple weeks to sort stuff out before the train fully derails.

09/02/2018 - 12:52am We have had a couple of…

We have had a couple of years now since Newsome.  There should have been backups and others ready to step up by now.

 

Also, Patterson was not a top QB.  He was a decent QB with athletic ability and a questionable TD to INT ratio.  People act like we stole Tom Brady from the patriots.

09/01/2018 - 11:56pm Why?  Nd had just as many…

Why?  Nd had just as many players cramping as us.

09/01/2018 - 11:32pm It's frustrating teams like…

It's frustrating teams like Utah State and App state look better than us on O and in passing.  No way they are more talented than us.  It comes down to playcalling.  Something is really broken.  Maybe Harbaugh needs to hire a superb O coordinator and not be the one calling plays.

09/01/2018 - 12:50am The winner tomorrow should…

The winner tomorrow should automatically move into the top ten based on game difficulty.
