UK indeed invaded more countries, island, continents.

04/08/2018 - 12:18am i kinda agree

I kinda agree with you. I only finished the first 4 episodes, I didn't think Pep was that good during the season, the fist episodes didn't prove me wrong. Int he film, most playing calling scene in the booth was toward him and most of them are passing plays. Drevno's play was likely cut intensionally sinc he left the team. What Pep's coaching in the first a few eposiodes in the QB meeting was not that impressive, to be honest. Nothing is too much techinical, and only focus on quite plain instruction, of cause it's ony a few minutes shot here or there, what can I see. You can probably say the same thing on Brown in the film, but we all know that he's a good teacher. Pep's ablity is still to be determined, and the second season would give us enough sample size if he's really good or bad. There is a reason Harbaugh hire Jim McElwain, I think.

One thing caught me the most is how Pep instruct Speight to go to the teammates in the game and do some prep talk to encourage them. I don't know whether this is very common in collegue football team, but I think this would have been autmoatic for a senior QB. He should have enough leadership to do it on his own without other coaches reminding him. I think this group of QB needs to improve their leadership. Just check out how the defensive guys are doing, Gary's only in the 2nd year, he's a natrual leader already.

I am grateful to see the personal side of many of these players and coaches. Harbaugh's morning reaction after the MSU lost, Gary struggles with his father, Hidgon's family, Black's family, Hurst driving uber (don't watch you cell phone when driving and on the camera) etc. All these make me like these players even more. 

I have a feeling that this kind of documetry film coudl be a significant distraction for the team. I am not sure there will be another one this year, I hope they can focus on improving. Too much distraction from team and coach Harbaugh. 

 

04/03/2018 - 9:55pm the problem

the problem is not the big. We do not have very good jump shoot center before Moe anyway. The issue is the PG, simpson is nowhere near the typical PG in Coahc B's system. He cannot shot 2 pt after pick and roll. Without that, the switcing will work effectively. Because the defense know you can only dribble. I think Someone else will take over the PG job next year (whoever can take high percentage mid range jumper). the effeicent jump shot after pick and roll can open up a lot more of different optionsy and make the pick and roll much harder to guard. I think the best to counter the swith is to jump shoot behind the screener. We cannot do that this year and struggle. I think Teske can handle this as well as many of our bigs in the past. He may not be the star, but he will be a force on both ends of the floor. We need to find at least one PG can do jump shot and drive to the basket with low TO/Ass ratio. I think we will eventually find someone in our roster now. I highly doubt that it's Simpson, he has too much ground to make up. That said, he's quite good in transition, distributing the ball very well, though.

04/02/2018 - 11:59pm we still

We still have another final four coming up. Cheer up!

04/02/2018 - 11:46pm great team

This may be Coach B's best chance to win the championship. We come up shot. They have a good game plan, but a bench player and the refs crushed us once again. Too many touch foul. When we pull away, the refs start to call us foul, one possesion, the same refs call  Robinson two fouls and kick him off the court.

Always hate basketball, if it's not Michigan, I wouldn't even watch any basketball game. It's indeed a great run regardless.

I think our best days are yet to come. The incoming recruiting class will shows, two years later, this team will come back to the stage and next time, they will as stronger. Hopefully, we can keep this group of assistant coaches for a long time. Great group, indeed. Hat off for all players and coaches.

03/31/2018 - 11:35pm i like our chance

I like our chance being underdog.

03/31/2018 - 11:05pm Go Blue!

We will shoot them out of the gym! They ran out of their 3ps tonight.

03/25/2018 - 12:03am well said

their game plan clearly has that element. Don't allow DR to even touch the ball. One play they missed that assginment, he got a crucial 3 points.

03/25/2018 - 12:00am the questions

the question was asked from the live broadcast room. It's meaningless question. It's a feat they went to E8, shoudl have congratulate them.

03/24/2018 - 11:39pm it wouldn't matter

the chance is still 99.9% they lose, especially the ball is on Robinson's hand. DR making the two FT, crushed their soul.

I don't like the idea to ask those questions, salt on the wound. It's just trying to make him look worse regardless the answer.

03/18/2018 - 11:29pm great news

Michigan has played worse when it's a late game. it's been for a few years like that. Earlier time is better for us to perform well.

03/18/2018 - 11:28pm shut up

it doesn't matter at this point. They need to play their A game to beat ATM.

02/25/2018 - 1:32pm what

what i am interested in the mostis what FBI would do the next? Will they check these families' band account or expense, tax documents? If those families took a large enough trunk of money, would be be easy to find out by FBI?

02/24/2018 - 10:32pm the nice about this team is

the nice thing about this team is they don't need everyone light up to win a game. We have so many weapons on starting line up and bench. Couple with good defense this year. This team is very hard to beat. this is the best team we have since the 2013 squad. Yet, the best roster is yet to come, looking at the incoming class, we are loaded with talents, a lot of good shooter and lengthy athelete. I wish Moe can stay for one more year.

02/11/2018 - 10:47pm gambling is on ESPn too

I mean poker.

02/05/2018 - 11:10pm The more former players

The more former players doing coaching, the better for our program in the long term. If Harbaugh can develope a program that also develop young coaches with Michigan tie. It will bode very well for Michigan's future.

02/05/2018 - 12:47am i hope

i hope he can also punt. Our punter is a bigger problem. Nordin onthe other side seems a little be unknown. He make me feel that he could be out of the team any given week.

02/05/2018 - 12:16am that throw was not good

that throw was not acurate. The #80 thrower (too short) did not set his foot when throwing the ball, so the ball sail a little bit. On the other ealges trick play. the TE 88 is tall enough that set his foot firm when throw and deliver a perfect ball for Foles to catch.

02/04/2018 - 11:49pm why give the ref that much credit on that play?

isn't all the replay review decided by NY?

01/27/2018 - 10:33pm chinese media

some chinese media have reported this in lengthy news. But don't necessary mentions MSU, only mentioned the law suit is in Michigan. Most Chinese don't evne know where MSU is. They reported as it's a national scandal this is more tied to USA gymnastic team. women's gymnastics is huge in China, USA gymnastics  becomes a laugh stock gobally. Nobody gives a damn about MSU outside this country. And I think this will do more damage to  the sports (Women's gymnastics in US) more than MSU in the long term.

01/26/2018 - 11:04pm i can

i can confirm you that UM is not immune to this with my second hand experience. They are probsalby no where near as this bad as MSU. But in a case i knew, when it comes down to university reputation vs. a life, the balance can go to the wrong end. The investigation can be totally go underground. 

Many these colleges just have too much power that can influence criminal investigation on their campus. Who gave them those power?

01/26/2018 - 10:55pm media is the last to go with

what about those trainer, staff, coach, administrator, school police, local police, Olympic gymnasics organization, there are way more abuse cases there. it's as bad as MSU there.  

01/14/2018 - 11:39pm wait

wait, that means the game was tied before the PAT right? of course, they need to kick the PAT, because it's not decided. If the game is decided befor PAT even with 1 point, the best is just kneel it in PAT, so no body get hurts, and the opposite team cannot run for two points.

01/11/2018 - 11:55pm from another perspective

From another perspective, as San Saban said, the players deserve the best coaching. Ask youself do our players have the best position coach (or one of the best in the nation). If the answer is not. Time to make a change.

01/09/2018 - 1:34am new QB

Don't over hype the new QB. Once he has more game film, he can regress. Saban clear have him prepare some plays for this game. His pass are mostly to the freshmen WR who likely practice with him in 2nd team. Judo to Saban and dare to make the decision and call those.

i don't think harbaugh can do that. he becomes more conservative after being in NFL, everything is calculated, but this is collegue football, momentum is more important.

01/09/2018 - 1:07am that was not interception

the ball is out of his hand when his feet touch the ground. He never have pocession before running out of bound.

many missed holding, the missed call for block punt is a killer.

01/09/2018 - 1:00am i told

i told my colleauges (all michigan fans, one of them is high school football coach) that michigan is gased in the middle of the season (probably after MSU game), they jsut laughed at me. I'v see the same pattern last year. I didn't notice this the first year though. Now when we talk about S and C, they just shut up. LOL

01/09/2018 - 12:55am SEC

I am enjoying an SEC team suffer the BIG ref as we did year in and year out.

01/09/2018 - 12:26am My take

This two teams are close. The difference is depth and conditioning. You can see Georgia is still a step behind Bama in that regard. Michigan’s strength and conditioning is no where near these four playoff team plus osu. We have a long way to go with recruit and player development.

01/02/2018 - 12:19am relative

i hope it's "relative" change, meaning Jay Harbaugh, yay!

01/02/2018 - 12:15am what happened to him

is it attitude? he's supposed to take over starting from the season, but was not, and Hart was not very good either and led to Robbins's resurface.

 

There are so many weird things happening in personel this season. punter, starting RB, starting QB, starting RT, very strange. I miss Baxtor's special team coaching as well.

 

01/01/2018 - 8:22pm Demote

Demote him to where he should be OL coach. Just not calling play. Find another OC and WR coach, pep should go, he is not good.

01/01/2018 - 8:17pm Penn state

Pen state , whisky used the same play against us. SC may have rep this play again, again and again.

01/01/2018 - 7:13pm He was

He was mostly an ol coach in the past.

01/01/2018 - 7:11pm Wr coach

We need a wr coach to teach our talented wrs to get open

01/01/2018 - 5:14pm that's not true

I think a player in Carr or Bo era said they have two OL coach at that time. We don't see that often though. We do indeed need a WR coach.

 

The problem of this team is that you don't see the players' improvement through the season. It's been the problem in the past two seasons. Caoching turn over is not fun. Harbagu's initial staff (2015) is very good, but a few good guys left for whatever reason (some were not happy, some other find a better job).

 

do you miss our ST coach from 2016, YES. We got one of the best ST team that year, in almost all phases. We should hire him back from USC with 1M+ salary. He's wortht the money.

Do you miss Tyrone Weathly as our RB coach, YES

Do you miss Jackson as our DB coach, maybe not, but YES

Do you miss Jed Fisch as our passing game designer? QB developer? Hell Yes!

 

01/01/2018 - 5:07pm ASLO

He want his players to compete, where is the accountablity for the coaching. They shoudl compete too, and if they failed, BYE BYE. I think that's what Harbaugh set up.

01/01/2018 - 5:05pm the coach

the coaching staff, from harbaugh to all offensive coaching staff , cannot make excuse for this game. They called a bizzard game, and have a supbar game plan. put too much on the QB's shoulder when he cannot carry the load yet. It's really all on coaching to me.

If harbaugh doesn't do anything to the offensive coaching staff, he can lose the control of the team, affect the recruits. The players deserved better coaching than that.

01/01/2018 - 4:55pm that's not a good sign for the program

so many player attritions. this is a blow.

01/01/2018 - 4:51pm i have been thinking about this

Don Brown's defense has some flaws and it's rather easy to prepare. Because he always play only man to man. It's easier for an experienced QB to pick it apart. That's why most defense scheme mix zone and man to man to gether. It's just much harder for opponent to prepare that way.

This year, we have watson as nickle and he has been our weak point. Safety coverage is not very good, but it's not like we have much better in the past. The biggest problem of the defense is while they are fast, they are soft. I'v only seen the 1st and 3rd qrt in OSU game, they play physical enough, with had hits, this team does not have enough swagger. Maybe they are Young. but it seems that when Harbagh lost that swagger on the field, the players follow. I hope our depth can be build enough next year, and we can play tougher and more physical defense.

we see that in the past 3 season, but only for a few games, but it fade away when the season went on (due to injury and fatigue)

01/01/2018 - 4:42pm why

why you are so glad?

I don't think the coaching staff is helping him too much in play calling. Redzone could have pound the ball more. We have success bounding even the 1st half. When stopping it and throw the balls, the play call is just predictable in 2nd half. BAD Coaching.

01/01/2018 - 4:38pm doesn't matter

the problem is the OC playcalling.

01/01/2018 - 4:34pm this bowl game

this offense make me recall Hoke's last year. Hopeless.

01/01/2018 - 4:29pm I have been complaining the offense coaching all year

I do feel calm this 4 qrt, because I do not have faith that the OC and this QB can get it done. Peters is not a hero, at least not yet. And the playcall didn't help either. for example, the red zone offense led to his inteception. it's only 5-6 yard, We could have pound the ball with our FB, we done that all year long.

We don't need innovation to win this game, although I do think we need more innovative play calling to catch the opponent off balance in their defense.

this team is soft, and have been soft all year. There is a reason JH didn't contain his SC coach. But the biggest issue is still on JH and his offense coaching staff. it's time to make a change. Never a good fan of OL coach to be am OC. It's okay for OL coach to be Head coach, but I don't see many successful OC from a OL coaching back ground.

01/01/2018 - 12:08am Let’s win

Let’s win! And deliver our own big hit from our own #1 rank DE and hopefully future #1 NFL draft pick! Time to revenge!

12/31/2017 - 7:32pm Ravens

He is likely going back to ravens as dc?

12/29/2017 - 5:16pm calm down

Calm down people. I was forced to listen to Huge show when i drive home from work solely because the hugh show is in WTKA, that's always my default driving channel. From time to time, it's unbearable that I would turn to other music channel.

Huge from time to time would phrase Harbaugh, and bring down Dantonio, so he's not necessarily a MSU homer although he's in grand rapid area. I do think he is just a crying baby and try to create more wiggles in his channel. He does not bring in any better comments/ suggestion. Everytime he's biching about Tigers and Red Wings managers in the past 7-8 years, I would just turn to music. Note that I am not a Tigers or Wings or Lions fans. He was just that annoying to me. Stop crying and create turmoil, huge. You can do better than that. Your voice already sucks, don't let your oppinions suck too.

 

 

12/29/2017 - 5:08pm appreciate the effort.

I was hoping someone can do this for a long time. Unfortuantely, I am not a data scientist so it would have costed me 5x time to bring up my rusty programming skill. Regardless the conclusion I would appreciate your effort.

 

I would like to share my thoughts (my bad English, not a native English speaker)

1) I don't think no holding call alone would be able to be conclusive enough to tell the story. The referees are smart enough to balance it out throughout the game, so by seeing the number is not necessary enough. A good example, which led to me giving up watching any NBA game (regular season, playoff, any team) and most NCAA (most BIG) regular season basketball game (except for march madness), basketball refs can balance the call very effectively. Think about this way, the timing that the refs call a foul is important too. An offensive foul (withouth reaching the team limit) will only result in pocession change, but a defensive foul under the basket can results in two points (free throw). Ref often can do make up calls, but the impact is different, some can lead to points, some other calls may not (chaning possesion doesn't always lead to points). Go back to football, some call can keep the drive alive, and lead to points, some other calls, like holding can easily kill a drive and swing the momentum. a PI call can lead to moving the chain. However, refs can call the opposite team another PI call/holding call while there is not impact at all (either it get offset or got declined. but this penelties number still would show up in the stat sheet.

2) That being said, I think it's better to link this penalty to its impact, for example, did a holding call directly lead to a 3 and out, that would be a high impact? did a PI call lead to opponent to get points. There may be some sort of impact factor for theose penalties, then we shall see how that affect the outcome of the team.

3) I think it's crucial to find how the referees are asigned by BIG. And compare to their assigning critieria for regular season game. It's based on geographic proximity? or something else? How the win/lose percentage, and penalty percentage for these referee towards different team. The reason I would like to see this is that I'v noticed John O'neil has been assigned to many of our lossing game. and Fans noticed this already. both our Home game vs MSU in 2015, 2017, and away game vs. IOWA in 2016 are assigned to John Oneil. and we got a lot of bad calls in those games, and npot strong enough to win the uphill battle. The way how those refs affecting the game is astonishing to me. They can allow a lot of no call and initiate the physical contacts from oppositing team in 1st qrt, and make our players and coaching gets to a uncomfortable zone. The ref calls IMPACTs play call, people! If you throw a slant and the opponent DB hold/or PI your WR the hell out of it, but no call? Would you call a slant again? in the next few play?

12/21/2017 - 9:08pm JBB is bad

He is not expected to be starter if we have other options.  However, Kulger has not beeb effective until his 5th year, so it may change.
