    Rob and Lucas, this was a miserable game to watch.Why in the world Brady does not get involved until it is almost over? Michigan had been very lucky until now because offensive coach keep calling terrible game plan. Hey coach Brady take the helm, you are the head coach last time I saw. It is your fault as much as Al’s

    Please don’t run 3 times up the gut and kick. We need to try to make this easier. Let Gardner make a play.

  3. Tyler Brochhagen says

    For the record, I don’t agree with running there. This really comes back to bite if Gibbons misses this. I let Gardner make a play there.

      Considering I’m the only one that will probably see this, I agree with you and acknowledge your comment. Solid contribution.

    • Lucas Rains says

      Michigan struggled early (3 Gardner TO’s in the first half). They’ve played pretty well in the second half though. Michigan defense has been great.

    I’m back for a about a minute, you have to tip your cap to Gardner, he has been resilient and Funchess is a beast. I called a big game from him today in the staff picks column

    • Tyler Brochhagen says

      Great half from Gardner. I’m really encouraged by how he’s played this half, especially after 3 turnovers in the first half.

    Fitz has 14 carries for 4 yards. It might not be all on him, but what would it hurt to throw Derrick Green in there a little bit more?

          Offensively this team still doesn’t have an identity. The coaches want to be a power football team, but we just don’t have the horses right now. The interior line is still young, and I think we have some guys that are redshirting this year that will start next year which will help.

          Turnovers by the quarterback position the last 3 years have really hindered the offense and as a result have really made the offenses look worse than they actually were/are IMO. Obviously I’m not pleased and I do think the coaches are accountable, but I don’t put this all on them by any means. I’m going to wait until Hoke has a team full of upperclassmen of his recruits before I make any final judgments.

          We said the same thing about the o-line last year. That they had some blue chip recruits redshirting, wait until they take over. Fast forward to this year and the line play is still bad.

    Lot of talent…coming along nicley…but i would like to see him get better in run support….reminds me of shazor…but better in coverage and not as nasty…

  7. isportsChad says

    Mattison gives that nickel and dime stuff to every opponent….it will be interesting to see if o’brian takes it….

  8. isportsChad says

    Worse…had to string up some yarn and stuff it into my galaxy s 3…..a mouse is ridinv a bike to generate the power…..

      • Tyler Brochhagen says

        They can’t blitz themselves either. No secondary can cover all day, it’s just not realistic. A receiver will come open eventually.

  9. Tyler Brochhagen says

    I have a feeling we are going to see the first great road performance of the Hoke era. But that might just be me having my maize and blue colored glasses on!

    • Tyler Brochhagen says

      Great news! I admit I’m a little nervous about him coming back, but if the medical staff says he’s good then who am I to have doubts?
