Thanks, WD. How are we looking on the draw control and on the clear? Was the four goal run from winning straight draw controls or some good D?

It will be interesting. While signing day is now diminished, we are all putting time into following the transfer portal pretty closely. Just shifting the focus at the moment--we'll see if it ultimately hurts ratings/fandom

Guess he'll be just as uneasy at Texas.

Those 5* receiver recruits like Hunter Renfrow 2014 0-star recruit with five other offers

^^^^ This comment is on point

At the same time, it feels like should have practiced our hurry up a bit more sometime in the other 10 games in case we'd need it against a good team (whether OSU or in the playoff)

The ones who do it consistently and win most of their games do.

This year our line was better at run blocking and we had a good running back. We saw how trying to air it out went at Notre Dame--our tackles were turnstiles at that point.

I shared this with a co-worker who was an guest coach for a D1 Women's Team game this week. She loved it and made her own sign and used it to great effect.

I know, my cool story bro game is strong today.

I always thought it was Coaching Carousel, but either works

I took the point of the post your replying to to be "if you wear God on your sleeve, you should act like it" while pointing out many coaches who wear God on their sleeve while not acting like it. I don't see anything wrong with that. Now if you think Urban truly believes and lives his life according to what is espoused in the New Testament, I don't know what to tell you.

01/07/2019 - 11:06am Do ya'll selves a favor and…

Do ya'll selves a favor and watch the DL 1-1 video. Mazi Smith destroys his man on each rep. Just pushes them in the backfield and tosses them out of the way. We haven't had that kind of bull-rush since I don't remember when.

12/14/2018 - 10:24am Correct

Correct

Harbaugh and Durkin worked together for multiple periods of time, so that doesn't reflect great on Harbaugh either. That said, Durkin didn't get Saban's attention until after a kid died on his watch

12/12/2018 - 4:04pm I hear you, but in the long…

I hear you, but in the long run this is going to drive a lot of fans away permanently rather than just sitting through a multi-year blip. And that blip will be fun. Imagine Kentucky with 5 scholarships and a bunch of walk-ons.

Then again, in the long run Emmert is rich and retired and doesn't care.

12/07/2018 - 11:13am Your statement is not…

Your statement is not accurate. UM will take athletes who just barely pass the NCAA Clearinghouse. The difference is that UM will only take a certain percentage of athletes per team that are below certain standards, while other teams can take 100%.

Don't fall victim to Type 1 error. If I walked up to every person I encountered and predicted they'd be pregnant within 3 months, I'd be right sometimes. I'd also probably be about as accurate as the BPI

Eh, we're plenty snotty around here. Thought the joke was fine. Great essay and glad to get the perspective as I was too young during UMs dominating era to think about OSU fans' experience. Glad you post here.

11/22/2018 - 9:36pm Eh, we're plenty snotty…

Enjoyed the read. Go blue!

11/19/2018 - 10:41am Agreed. I think these are…

Agreed. I think these are great.

It's hard to think of how to provide a witty response to ramblings and musings. It's like how I would enjoy Hunter S Thompson: keep my mouth shut and enjoy the ride.

11/08/2018 - 9:54am Agree wholeheartedly. The DL…

Agree wholeheartedly. The DL has been a DL team, and that rubs off on other units/whole team over time. Because who, deep down, doesn't want to be part of a real honest-to-goodness team?

11/08/2018 - 9:53am Agree. Following Greg…

Agree. Following Greg Mattison since he came back in 2011 has been an absolute joy. Such humility while being a total badass

11/08/2018 - 9:52am Nice catch!

Not sure of your definition for tough guy, but pretty sure a ton of NFL players smoke

But who's covering the healthcare for all those snapped necks? Are you only snapping necks of those with employer health insurance?

11/07/2018 - 8:22am Second this, especially with…

Second this, especially with edibles. Even with smoking your first time it may take a bit of time for it to kick in. I kept hitting the bowl thinking I wasn't high. Then all of a sudden I was baked.

Physical break to get/feel healthy probably factors a bit as well

^^This.

Also, when I/Michael Jordan was on fire, I only took 3s and they hit at, what, a 85% hit rate?

Fully agree. Mgoblog has upped the ante on analysis of UM football and we all benefit!

I get the exercise. I think he should still be fired as the buck stops with him. I'm not a big fan of plausible deniability in coaching. He then does coaching rehab -- a year off with a few commentary gigs, 1-2 years as a DC at a name program, and then HC again. Not because it will necessarily make him any different (though here's hoping) but because then at least he can walk into recruits' rooms and have a chance.

If that's throwing the book at someone, I don't even want to know what crime is punishable by Rutgers

I would imagine the UFR for the D will have you feeling good again. The only chance MSU had at points was b/c we coughed up the ball in our own 10. And even then MSU needed a trick play to score

Any insight into whether you think he wants OC duties again or will be happy being one of the highest paid OL coaches (assuming we pay the man his money going forward)?

10/29/2018 - 2:30pm That has to be the case. It…

That has to be the case. It makes sense to overcorrect at first and then start giving more leash. Let's hope it works for Patterson these next few games.

I enjoy seeing that haters called out. Mark-ass marks.

I'd love to believe it but [insert SEC is dumb and doesn't understand statistics/basic logic joke here]

10/23/2018 - 8:13am This is the biggest…

This is the biggest difference I see between our running game this year and 2016: we can get the first down running three straight times into stacked boxes in the 4th. We've been able to close out games all year this way.

Some of that is that Shea can keep the ZR, some of that is the line whooping up on tired Ds, some of that is Higdon turning 2 into 4.

Agree. Hate Bama but want to see them beat LSU. 11-1 Bama gets in because they pass the "eye test"

Hey forgot to post in the Sat morning psycho column (I hate trying to comment on when on the phone), but I enjoy them. Keep up the good work!

I like that Devin tore up their field.

It looks a bit silly, granted. But at a certain point, when a team keeps doing cheap and dirty intimidation tactics year in and out, it can get in your head if you don't end up letting loose and messing with them back.

I like that Devin didn't just stand there and take it. He stood his ground, let loose, and then played a heckuva game.

Makes sense. Well done coming around on this one.

10/16/2018 - 11:49am I'm OK if Gary goes this…

I'm OK if Gary goes this route, too. I hope he doesn't, but I get it. Especially given Gary's been dealing with this shoulder since last season. Go get your money and thanks for what you've done to improve Michigan. Love to see you suit up a few more times, but rather have you recover from a minor injury than risk a Jake Butt or Grant Newsome injury.

Makes you wonder if we don't start seeing a change to the 3-yrs post college rule for the NFL. You know, that or letting the players make money off their likeness while in college.
