You're not alone. I'd much rather have Erin Andrews or Jenny Taft to look at on the sidelines of a Fox broadcast.

Agreed. Pretty girl but way to "fake" for me. I like real girls that look natural.

09/24/2018 - 4:00pm Me too.

Me too.

That's the exact same part of the play by play that I thought of when I read the post about Howard's comments.

09/24/2018 - 11:37am In the interest of being…

In the interest of being factual they had 275 yards on the ground and UM had 119. Whereas their passing yardage was a meager 56 yards and UM had 328.

09/24/2018 - 9:56am UM played a bad first half…

UM played a bad first half of their very first game of the year on the road with a new QB and a pieced together Oline.

In the first half UM had 105 yards of offense to ND's 270 yards. Clearly they were not playing well at all on both sides of the ball. They did have 3 drives into ND territory but only had a FG to show for it.

However in the second half UM had 227 yards of offense, the Irish had 64. Clearly UM played better in the 2nd half on both sides of the ball. They had 3 drives after half time that made it to mid field or beyond. The first ended when Patterson threw a pick on 2nd and 1 at mid field. The second ended when McCaffrey threw incomplete on a 4th and 7 at the ND 44, when he had to take over for Patterson mid-drive due to cramping. The third ended with a TD. They were even approaching mid-field again on the last drive when Patterson got the sack/fumble. 

My point is they weren't in the game in the first half due to a lot of newness on offense and some questionable play on defense. The second half you can see the defense stiffen and the offense start to put some meaningful drives together. Had they had more time who knows what might have happened. I chock that loss up to bad luck in terms of developmental progression and scheduling. Had they started the season with WMU or some other MAC school the offense would have had more time to gel before really being tested and they'd be undefeated.

09/20/2018 - 7:30am So according to your logic…

So according to your logic no team should ever fall behind. They should never rely on time available in the second half to mount a comeback. They should never have to make adjustments to their game plan based on new data that may take time to fully implement. Sometimes it takes a first half just to figure out how to win.  

Once the rain hit neither team was able to produce any meaningful offense. The only reason UM scored in the third was due to a bad punt deep in MSU territory that gave UM the ball at the MSU 33 yard line. The rain made throwing, catching, running, punting, kicking and even just holding the ball significantly more difficult. All MSU had to do was stack the box and force O’Korn to throw which was dicey even when the weather was good.

I think you need to go back and watch at about the halfway mark in the third quarter.

I think he may be allowing for the possibility of overtime.

09/18/2018 - 7:39am Yeah and then the deluge hit…

Yeah and then the deluge hit making it extremely difficult for Michigan to mount any kind of comeback. How many games are won in the fourth quarter? How many comebacks completed late in the game? Sometimes winning teams need all 4 quarters to do so.

This expanded crown of the helmet definition the announcers were talking about needs to be revisited. The side of the helmet or as they said the “temples” area means that pretty much if any part of the helmet hits another player deemed defenseless its targeting. I mean what’s left the ear hole?? FFS 

09/15/2018 - 9:52pm Exactly what the play by…

Exactly what the play by play guys said. I mean you could clearly see him lead with his shoulder and their heads just happened to collide. Not targeting. So what now, any time helmets touch they’re going to call targeting??

I heard people were booing after the first Michigan drive stalled, is that true?

Very sad.

I read somewhere that the problem with OL recruiting 2016/2017 came down to Drevno's inability to recruit the Midwest talent for a Midwest school. He was more skilled at recruiting west coast talent for west coast schools and that was not the job he was hired for.

Yet he is being singled out by several people.

Very important distinction. We can criticize the performance but we shouldn't criticize the players, that should be reserved for the coaches.

It's not that Brian doesn't appreciate Ambry Thomas' effort. It's just that he knows kick/punt returns for TD's are not something that can be expected in order to make this team successful, that can only come from a high performing offense and defense.

I love how Don says "He's a poor thrower" and just moments later he throws a 37 yard strike to Gallon who YAC's it all the way to the ND 16.

You sound as if the people on this board actually suit up for the games. As fans it’s our prerogative to look ahead, take things for granted and act like homers.

I liked the all maize uniforms they wore against the Gators last year and I even liked the all blue they wore a few years back. I'm not saying all the time but it's nice to see them mix it up. All white with maize and blue stripes is boring.

08/31/2018 - 3:02pm Im' sorry but the white away…

Im' sorry but the white away uniforms with their maize and blue stripes are boring. If the colors are maize and blue then the uniforms should be maize and blue. It's not maize and blue and white.

08/31/2018 - 2:30pm They are missing their 2…

They are missing their 2 best linemen in program history (arguably), their 2 best running backs and have a suspect QB. We've upgraded QB and improved the OL and our D is even better than last year. I like our chances.

Personally I prefer the all maize uniforms they wore in last year's opener to the traditional white with maize and blue stripes. 

Edit: I stand corrected for my improper color description of maize.

According to this ND was 20th:

Considering both lists I think ND's defense last year was good but not elite. Michigan's defense was elite last year and will be even better this year.

Gentry is 6'8" and 250 lbs., if Patterson can get him the ball ND will have a hard time stopping him. Shea should have no problem hitting a target that size.

How hard is it really to go to school at UM as a football player? Don't they get all kinds of help from tutors and have a required course load is a little less strenuous?

08/20/2018 - 11:06am Our coaching staff can…

Our coaching staff can provide just as much NFL preparation as any team in the NCAA. Who knows right now if playing time for him in 2020 is or isn't an option? Once Gary and Winovich are gone it is possible. If UM is truly a meritocracy it's possible for him to play as a freshman. Gary played his first year so clearly there's precedent. I don't think any of these are reasonable explanations for that comment.

Is there a way to reasonably read that comment as anything other than bag-men??

08/17/2018 - 1:09pm Starts with a full 15…

Starts with a full 15 minutes of hedging about the recent Brandon Wimbush throw-the-swing-pass-12-feet-over-the-WR’s-heads-technique video:

  • Begins with the older reporter quoting AI (“this is practice”)
  • It is pointed out that even Tim Tebow made bad throws in practice

Um what about the part of the video where Wimbush is throwing at the target net and can barely hit it and the other QB hits if quite accurately??

08/14/2018 - 1:30pm If you watched the video in…

If you watched the video in the OP you would have seen the screen pass drill they were running at the beginning and Wimbush was doing just that, throwing behind his receivers twice in the three reps they showed, Jurkovec was way more accurate.

08/14/2018 - 1:12pm Our run game was good from…

Our run game was good from mid-season on and I expect that to continue to improve.

Our pass blocking and QB play were the main issues and I think with the addition of Warinner and Patterson we will see significant improvement there. ND lost 2 starting OL linemen who were the first in the history of ND football to go top 10 in the NFL draft. They also lost their starting RB, TE and WR. Wimbush was erratic last year and recent video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2bnlEPKQKA) shows that really hasn't changed much, his accuracy is horrible. With those losses and Wimbush under center I expect their offense to be worse.  

Our defense will be dominant, top 10 last year and should be top 5 or better this year. Their defense was barely top 20 last year but they're returning pretty much everyone so I expect them to be better this year. Having said that I don't think their D is in the same league with ours. They'll be good but not elite.  

This thing comes down to which offense can perform better against the other team's defense and based on what I see right now I like our chances there.

There's also this interesting piece from past Florida players under Meyer and provides a glimpse into how Urban ran things in Gainesville and the culture he created there.
