12/14/2018 - 1:47pm Bowl game is a de facto…

Bowl game is a de facto spring game for next year. With key players sitting out and all.

might as well play the next gen now.

12/12/2018 - 4:02pm With the OL seeming to get…

With the OL seeming to get things together (knock on wood) I just hope next year we have a home run RB getting snaps.

we need more chunk plays. 

12/09/2018 - 3:01pm 4-5 more than Shea’s total…

4-5 more than Shea’s total. That was my larger point. Nobody would really be saying much about Murray if he were at UM.

i think he connects on a couple of those deep balls Shea left short and gets a handful more TDs.

did not know about that 30 TD number for UM. Hope that changes, probably will need to for  playoff season.

Oops meant to say lose to ND

12/08/2018 - 4:31pm If Poole makes the Beilein…

If Poole makes the Beilein leap this year UM will be very dangerous. Like final four or bust dangerous and can play with anyone. Anyone.

i hope that happens. Small step back year after two straight final four runs sounds good to me. 

Recruiting seems decent so we wouldn’t be “down” for long.

12/04/2018 - 9:07am No not funny. 

This is…

No not funny. 

This is exhibit A for the UM attitude and why we can’t beat OSU consistently. They do want it more. 

Hopefully this culture (of winning and hating UM) that Meyer  made fades away so UM has a chance. 

12/02/2018 - 2:09pm That was big takeaway for me…

That was big takeaway for me with OU, they took shots downfield with 50/50 balls once a series it seemed like (sometimes more).

their check down was swing pass to RB (Evans like) who would settle for 5yds.

We are equipped to do the same things but don’t.

Who picks first? Peach or fiesta? I think UM will be first at large selected

How diverse is Michigan’s offense really though? Some fancy fullback snaps doesn’t make you multiple

Northwestern is a poor man’s UM

UM is a poor man’s  Georgia 

12/01/2018 - 6:34pm UGA actually throws it…

UGA actually throws it downfield...

also see regular check downs to RBs for 7yds when there is nothing open downfield 

You saw the stat on front page earlier this week. We run in a higher % of downs by a good margin than Bama despite them blowing teams out every week and sitting Tua in almost every 4th qtr


12/01/2018 - 2:12pm Can only hope that the blow…

Can only hope that the blow out by OSU showed Harbaugh that he’s got to make changes. Need to be able to win a shootout if needed. 

He’s probably going to need to sell a passing attack to get Shea to return as well. 

I’m confident D Brown will adapt. Has all new corners to start fresh with a sprinkle some zone



12/01/2018 - 1:36pm Was thinking the same thing…

Was thinking the same thing..

we have got to open up that passing game. 

12/01/2018 - 1:16pm I’m not saying UM D = OU.

I’m not saying UM D = OU.

just that UM got exposed vs only good O they played. Lots more Os like OSU in B12.

UM D would get wrecked by OU, Okie State, WVU to name a few.

We wouldn’t have same stats we had playing MSU, Wisc, NW

12/01/2018 - 1:13pm OU going deep a lot. Into 50… OU going deep a lot. Into 50:50 coverage. We definitely need to do that with our 3 huge WRs
12/01/2018 - 1:00pm Agreed. Good to have strong…

Agreed. Easy to have strong looking defenses vs weak run first offenses in B1G


we’d still have good D in B12 but would probably give up 30+ to several teams in that conf 

12/01/2018 - 12:50pm So far looks like OU is…

So far looks like OU is getting the ball out pretty quick. Even on deep balls. Opposite of our slow developing vpassing games 


also check downs / swing passes 

11/25/2018 - 10:07pm All I ask is that we play…

All I ask is that we play the guys that are hungry. If that means the youngsters so be it. 

 Not saying that anyone was NOT hungry this Saturday but easy to nhave a let down or look ahead to NFL draft after a last game clunker like that.



11/24/2018 - 4:10pm  






11/24/2018 - 2:14pm Fuck it. We are a man team…

Fuck it. We are a man team. Zone is our change up.


shade a safety to Watson’s aide and bring the heat. We are not going to zone / cover our way or of this.

bring the heat and let the chips fall.

on O need to be 50/50 run lass on 1st and 2nd down 

11/09/2018 - 2:56pm I never read the play by…

I never read the play by play. Appreciate the work though as it’s the basis for the rest of the summaries 


summaries only plus video clips

11/09/2018 - 2:54pm Got to think D Brown springs…

Got to think D Brown springs Gary at DT for rush package vs OSU right? Seems too obvious 

they can’t run well and Haskins does not do well with pressure.  We has all the sacks if that happens


11/06/2018 - 12:28am My only worry is the OSU…

My only worry is the OSU will go to a 2 QB offense for UM and we will get caught off guard.

much like last year we weee doing ok and the. Backup WB comes in and lights it up and we have no gameplan. Barrett plays the whole game last year and UM wins.

i think urban may use Martell in the Tebow role to good effect. How D Brown is ready!

if OSU doesn’t bring some kind of wrinkle UM will pound them into submission.

Logged in just to say I laughed my ass off to this.




10/15/2018 - 12:37am Purdue will be Wisc.


Purdue will stun Wisc I bet.


wisc is not that great. I think there is a chance they don’t make it to Indy.


09/29/2018 - 11:44pm Bought tickets for this…

Bought tickets for this tailgate and couldn’t find it. Walked all over canal shores golf course (N and S of central st).

Didn’t  get there till 2:30 so maybe it was closing down?

Didn’t see a single Celtic, fifty/50 or UM Chicago alumni flag or sign. Would have been great if there were signage. I just saw small parties tailgating



09/29/2018 - 11:17pm Watching others team play I…

Watching others team play I just don’t understand how/why we can’t attack the middle of the field with our passing game.

where are our slots making safeties look like fools?Why can’t we throw a slant when we need 6yds on third down?

Just seems like every pass play is a challenge. Jen when they do work the WR is out (Nico) or drops (McKeon)

09/17/2018 - 2:23pm Good luck, wish we could…

Good luck, wish we could pull that off. My son turns 2 in Dec and no way in hell I could take him to a game. He’d sit still for maybe 15mins

wife and I will be dropping him off with grandparents. We’ll be heading up from Chicago. 

Was going to try the Chi UM alumni club tailgate at Canal Shores Golf course.


do people in Chicago drive/uber to game or take the train? I just moved to Chicago last winter so first time.

09/08/2018 - 7:03pm This is regularly done in…

This is regularly done in the SEC where they have an embarrassing amount of riches on the DL

we should definitely do it given out DT situation...and quality CBs

09/07/2018 - 2:05pm Agreed. Gary doesn’t even…

Agreed. Gary doesn’t even get too many sacks from the DE spot anyways.


We probably get more sacks from his replacement just by having Gary blow up the interior on passing downs. He’d still get his top here I’m sure 

09/01/2018 - 9:28pm I can’t believe that Don…

I can’t believe that Don Brown will get worked again.

Think he finds a way to force several punts. Offense needs to flip a switch and sustain some drives. Hit some intermediate stuff

07/17/2018 - 8:39pm Same amount for me.


Same amount for me.


didnt use the app before so site update has not affected me much.

only change I notice is lack of “recent board post” on right column which was nice.



07/15/2018 - 2:26am Clowney has 13 sacks his…

Clowney has 13 sacks his sophomore year and only 3 his junior year.


he had 24 in 3 years. Gary has 6 sacks in 2 years. Probably won’t get as many bc his teammates get there first!

04/04/2018 - 2:49pm oh I agree

oh I agree and am glad that Belein showed a willingess to roll with players despite the fact that they cannot shoot bc of their strong defense being such a plus. Before this season I would have said NO way coach played a Matthews and Simpson so much(not sure he had a choice this year). Glad he did though and glad that we succeeded doing it so that he would value D in the future as well and not go 100% O.

I'm just saying that Simpsons lack of offense also hurts teammates on that side of the ball. Just like his defense helps others teamamtes on that side. If we have 4 shooters on O we can overcome that. This year we did not and had to grind A LOT of games. Not sure we will next year since we lose our two best shooters.

I'm of the mind that D is less a skill than desire. So I think it is easier to find someone who can shoot even a little bit and also has that tenacity on D then it is to get Simpson to be a 40%/70% guy. IMO that will never happen.


If I was a betting man I would bet Simpson does not start everygame from here on out. I don't think Belien can break his tendancies 2 more years in a row. We'll see





04/04/2018 - 1:54pm Simmons was better passer for sure

but he played a matador D style without brining much on O either.

04/04/2018 - 1:53pm Postitive i will get neggged. oh well. We all got opinions

But I highly doubt Simpson will become an effective shooter and look for someone to take the starting role away. Simpson could lead the second unit along with some instant offense type players off the bench to balance him out.

I think people are downplaying how BAD the offense was during the tourney.Overall offense is hampered too much with him on the floor as everyone sags off him. Given his lack of off the dribble shooting, end of shot clock time with him on the ball usually spells trouble and even if he were to get by his man its easy to foul him and give up 1 or 0 points on the posession. There were some crushing TOs late in the title game. Simpson shooting a 3 is basically a TO as well esp when you consider that almost anyone else on the team shooting it is a better look. IMO, he didn't do great to find a shooter. I just don't remember a lot of drive a kicks from him, its either pick and pass to pick man or drive all the way.

The comparison to MAAR is off IMO. Just need to look at Simpsons FT woes. Unless you completely break and re-create his entire shot (and he buys in) he will be limited.   MAAR has never been worse than 70% from the FT line. He actually has/had a shooting stoke, when Simpson shoots it looks weak from the get-go.

again, hope I am wrong and he can turn the corner. Would prefer to see a quick guard with same tenacity for D (which is as much desire as skill) step in that can also hit a 3. Need at least a 3 and D type at PG if we can't get the total package.

If Simpson starts the next few years we have to have 4 other 40% 3pt shooters on the floor with him.

03/18/2018 - 3:44pm is it me or did I hear a "america!" chant went Wagner

is it me or did I hear an "america!" chant went Wagner got his early fouls and had to go to the bench? was in the first half. I need to go to the replay to check.



11/21/2017 - 11:56am Ok some put up JOK highlight tape

Ok someone put up a JOK HS highlight tape Before I actually start to think a Malzone deep ball could be our best offense. Haha.

I'm sure JOKs tape looks just as good...but damn would be nice for a WB he could through a catchable deep ball.

11/06/2017 - 5:34pm Exactly this

This only worked bc Minny had no TE or RB passing the threat.

I checked the UFR for PSU and best I can tell we couldn't do this bc PSU had 3 WRs and often RB or TEs going out.

Somehow, OSU was able to send in extra guys at the mesh point vs PSU and destroyed there zone read for the most part. Not sure why we could not.

11/06/2017 - 12:50pm Fitz

Even in limited duty

11/04/2017 - 7:39pm Best Big Game coach for sure

They lay the occasional egg but big games he has his team ready to play every time

10/21/2017 - 11:14pm Don't have to go spread. Just need simpler passing game

Everything is slow developing. Never check down to a RB for free yards. Some of this in QB but coaches are paid to adjust. After 3 games og OKorn you know what you have and need to adjust or pull him

10/21/2017 - 10:23pm On coaches. McCray out in that spot for 2yrs now


10/20/2017 - 10:53pm We need to pull a Dantonio

Drag a superior team into the muck and beat them at your own game.
Seriously, punt o rama with 2-3 big plays is what we need. I think we must get a D TD it a Return TD to have a shot. Or several TOS leading to short Fields

10/07/2017 - 10:59pm Fitting ending to last real drive

Horrible draw to Evans no less.

Facially need fumble by d now

10/07/2017 - 10:56pm Basically only time for this last drive.

Can't throw so this it it.

10/07/2017 - 10:40pm Screw it. Let's go wildcat lol
