I hope your using hyperbole.

If MTSU has 5 guys in the box and we come out in a 3 wr set you can best believe Shea will be checking to a run.

What if the run goes for 80yds?   Will the blog still erupt?    The blog will erupt after every loss and wins will have mild approval until they beat OSU.  Until then after every win the optimists will be countered by a BPONE advocate saying it means nothing.  

Deep down nobody really cares how they do it.   They just want 60-0 every game.

 

01/16/2019 - 3:21pm Thanks for this.    When I…

Thanks for this.    When I would rewatch the games the thing that stood out to me was that Patterson didn't have the patience and or vision to hit the shorter passes.  I was curious if you saw this as well.

I often saw the TE or RB leak out after checking for a blitz wide open, but Patterson was still looking deep waiting for the deep shot to come open or leaving a pretty clean pocket because he wasn't comfortable.   

I think the line continuing to improve and Patterson gaining more command of his progressions  the offense will be more consistent next year regardless.     

01/07/2019 - 12:51pm That's fair.  He looked…

That's fair.  He looked every bit as athletic to me which is key for pass blocking, which is why I used that comparison.   Obviously he has a long way to go.   

01/07/2019 - 11:38am When I commented on the live…

When I commented on the live thread about how I thought Jones looked great you did not agree.  For a guy his size I thought his ability to get set in pass blocking was incredible.     

I'm curious what parts of his game concern you?  

01/06/2019 - 7:57am I love all the Madden…

I love all the Madden players asking for offensive flexibility.  Having a dominant oline allows that to happen.  Oline is not there yet and Shea isn't either.  We will be closer next year 

01/03/2019 - 7:51pm Trentae Jones looks great. …

Trentae Jones looks great.  He's going to be the next Taylor Lewan.  Book It 

01/02/2019 - 2:48pm Luigi is key.    I think 3-3…

Luigi is key.    I think 3-3-5 is definitely going to get more usage as well.

In yr2 we were a refs random spot away from the playoff and the NC is out of the question?  GTFO

Don't bother Dr.  Nobody can listen to facts or reason.  

01/02/2019 - 2:36pm Don't listen to rumors.  …

Don't listen to rumors.   Saying he has an 80's mentality is dumb.

Did his San Franciso teams peak to soon?   How about at Stanford?   

He has a cutting edge training and conditioning staff.  

01/02/2019 - 2:34pm Lost me at same as Bo and…

Lost me at same as Bo and will fail against OSU.   Bo did not fail vs OSU.  I question if you are even a Michigan fan.        Please stop would be my comment,

01/02/2019 - 2:05pm Sparty actually is set up…

Sparty actually is set up very nicely.  They have 1 more year before they hit a talent glacier so they better capitalize.  They wasted this year.   

West is looking pretty good.  Nebraska and Minnesota seem to be trending and Purdue may have something despite the bowl game mess.

Texas is not exactly a sleeper pick anymore.  

UCLA played a ton of people. Yr2 for Chip.  Should be much better.

According to this board Michigan scored 1.2 pts per game this year so I think with 21 of the top 25 players on offense returning and the QB I think we might top double digits.

 

 

 

01/02/2019 - 1:57pm Yeah it seems like it's been…

Yeah it seems like it's been a good week for the Maize and Blue recruits.

On the negative side sounded like Rummler has struggled trying to play Center and surprisingly Dax has been quiet.. 

If they just cut and pasted the same articles from Tarik Black 2 years ago and replaced it with Cornelius they wouldn't miss a beat.  Scary how exact it has been.

Hinton was committed so long there was no buzz and people feared he may have been overrated because of his size and name but he looks great.  Great news.

This class looks to be something special.  Goonsquad

I appreciate the effort but this is dumb.

You can't stop trolls you can only hope to contain them.

12/20/2018 - 2:02pm This argument is false.  …

This argument is false.   Everybody was not in it over the course of a 13 game season.  Expanding the playoff would increase the value of the regular season by a lot.   

While it is true that teams like Alabama would probably have 1 or 2 games near the end of the season that didn't mean as much because they would make the playoff regardless, you would add 20-30 games that would have playoff implications.  7-2 Iowa vs 7-2 Wisconsin would hold zero interest to the playoff as currently formulated, but expanding it to 8-12-16 games would increase the excitement for those fan bases.

12/18/2018 - 3:03pm Is there anything to be said…

Is there anything to be said for the fact that the only positive thread on the front page(Sam crystal ball for Cornelius) has the fewest responses?

12/17/2018 - 2:38pm Stop grasping.   Bad take. …

Stop grasping.   Bad take.  Players at big time programs transfer all the time. People want to be big time, well  this is the deal.  Your not taking local guys that are try hard Rudy's that will stay 5 years just to be scout team. 

12/17/2018 - 2:34pm We're 10-2 with a Top 10…

We're 10-2 with a Top 10 recruiting class.  Losing Solomon is a blow but you must have no memory if after the last 10 years you think the wheels are coming off the program right now.

12/17/2018 - 12:41pm He has Hoke in his user name…

He has Hoke in his user name.   Do you need any more details?

12/15/2018 - 8:27am We have so many weapons it's…

We have so many weapons it's hard to say what to do.  If we go 3wr all the time Mason and the TE we have spent years carefully cultivating go to waste.  

If we go jumbo the WR are wasted.  It's a good problem, but the coaches really have difficult decisions.  The ND game was a perfect example.  We tried everything and the team wasn't ready to execute the empty formations well enough.  If they had that game to do over again they would have probably ran a game plan more similar to Wisconsin.  

One other thought is that this oline is returning 4 starters.  There is no doubt that this should be our best oline since at least Denards junior year and I would say it should  be better.

The question for Dr and Utah is that if you have your best line in over a decade and the lines clear strength is run blocking over pass blocking how should you set up your offense in the off season with all this talent?

Defenses are already starting to catch up and it's a trendy thing to say so I hesitate to endorse this so fully but this is the kind of team that relying more on RPO may be the answer.  Our personnel creates match up issues across the board.  Let's let the defense decide how they want to die.  If we have a talent  advantage and a numbers advantage we should see big plays from everybody. 

12/12/2018 - 12:43pm Must have effected the refs…

Must have effected the refs as well.  If they had just spotted it right we would not have been effected psychologically.    

12/12/2018 - 12:41pm Uh....love the guy but he is…

Uh....love the guy but he is overrated?  Just say what you feel and say he sucks

I agree with you, could you submit your resume to Jim?   I think your ideas would have saved us.  That stupid Don Brown defense only works against non quality opponents.   

Can I get a clarification on where you draw the line on quality opponents?  I can use that for betting  against Don Brown wherever he ends up next when Jim hires you to get that zone implemented.  Thanks.

 

 

12/12/2018 - 12:28pm Looks like Will Grier better…

Looks like Will Grier better suit up in the bowl game.   It's new to see 3rd rounders sit out.  

12/12/2018 - 12:26pm I used to be pissed about…

I used to be pissed about these threads, but now I've moved to the next stage, by being amused and astonished.  .   So it's ok now to keep Don Brown because OSU is going to a more running QB?  

Got it.  

12/12/2018 - 9:09am You must be young.   I'm…

You must be young.   I'm sure OSU fans felt like they were never going to get a win in the 90's either.   This years game has no bearing on next year's game.   Every game is a weird,  independent event seperate from the next.

These are fans.    They have no bearing on the game.  You can hate the revenge tour stuff, but fans predicting wins is not the same.  Your mixing your hate.

12/12/2018 - 8:07am Ok Cool.  Hook Em

Ok Cool.  Hook Em

12/11/2018 - 7:45pm You're wrong.  You really…

You're wrong.  You really think Harbaugh doesn't take the game seriously enough?  Think about the absurdity of the statement. If only Harbaugh had the intensity of all of us tough guys on the internet who sit on our couches and yell.

12/11/2018 - 7:10pm Before posting a dumbass…

Before posting a dumbass post like this again ask yourself if you think there will be another coach that will take this game more seriously.  

The guy who grew up on the sidelines of the 10 year war, who came back to be an All American and play QB for Bo Schembechler in the rivalry and is known for being an over competitive lunatic in every aspect of his life is the guy not giving it enough attention?

While you get upset sitting in your living room think about what he has probably done over the course of his life in this rivalry and you think it's smart to question his commitment?

You may disagree with his methods but don't disagree with the commitment.

 

It's ridiculous.

12/11/2018 - 2:38pm Pretty good point.

Pretty good point.

12/11/2018 - 2:37pm It would be a little more…

It would be a little more relevant to show players in the league the last 4 years, because obviously Harbaugh is not responsible for the famine of NFL guys about 5-9 years ago.

12/11/2018 - 2:28pm So Sam is only allowed to…

So Sam is only allowed to report on 5 stars,  that are for sure signing and will never be injured and win the NC.  Going to be some really short recruiting roundups in the morning.

12/11/2018 - 2:26pm He talked to Dax's dad.   If…

He talked to Dax's dad.   If Dax's dad told him don't say anything then is he supposed to break the man's trust to appease you and ruin his credibility in recruiting circles?  

12/11/2018 - 2:23pm He said today he talked to…

He said today he talked to Dax's dad.  

12/11/2018 - 2:19pm You still didn't answer who…

You still didn't answer who you follow for Michigan news.  

12/11/2018 - 2:12pm Can you think of anyone that…

Can you think of anyone that said Fuck Michigan then committed 2 weeks later?  That has to be .00001.

I think that kid from Texas Elliott decommittted then recommited to Texas.

Basically Najee Harris did the same thing in reverse but his committment to Michigan was silent.

12/11/2018 - 2:08pm Sam never said he's coming…

Sam never said he's coming back.   Is he supposed to report he's still being pursued by Michigan?   Obviously he has somewhat of a relationship with the dad.  If the dad told him he's a 100% Alabama it's over he wouldn't have said that.  The dad may be pulling his leg but he can't know that.  If you were him what would you have reported?

12/11/2018 - 2:05pm What?   Hill actually…

What?   Hill actually committed.   Are you saying it was a hoax?   Why would Sam be embarrassed?   Only way Sam to be embarrassed is if he said he was committing and he didn't.  Sam is now responsible for the moods of teenagers.  GTFO.  

12/11/2018 - 2:03pm Your mad at Sam for wanting…

Your mad at Sam for wanting a 10-1 Buckeye team?   Probably best to step away from the keyboard for a while.   Sam had zero effect on the outcome of the OSU game.  

He didn't say he was coming back.  He's reporting that Michigan is still in pursuit.  If you don't want that news then don't listen.

12/11/2018 - 2:00pm So what do you follow?

So what do you follow?

12/11/2018 - 1:59pm Thanks dad.   Little late…

Thanks dad.   Little late for that.  Probably best not to follow recruiting threads if that's your stance.

12/11/2018 - 1:57pm It appears you don't know…

It appears you don't know how to filter the information.   Sam never said Dax was coming back.   Is he not supposed to report that Michigan is still working on him?   I assume I just imagined Gary and Peppers and Solomon playing the last few years.

In the future Mgrow if there is a topic posted that allows for a positive or negative response you can probably just post a blank to save yourself the time and we can fill in the blanks for you.  

12/11/2018 - 1:52pm How do you move on exactly? …

How do you move on exactly?   You are a fan.  If Dax comes back you are not going to root for him or hope he does poorly?
