Michigan vs. Minnesota: The Sky Is Falling And Brady Hoke Doesn’t Know It

Michigan Football

A year ago I wrote that I thought that the sky may be falling after the UConn game…oh how wrong I was. I can honestly say now that the sky is falling. This program is at the point of no return it seems and it still hasn’t hit rock bottom…yet. Before the season started, I had heard that the coaches had some concerns about this upcoming season, but I can’t imagine they thought it would end up like this. I figured they would be worried they would be 9-3 with losses to their 3 major rivals, not 2-3 before October. I look at the schedule and there are no winnable games/guaranteed wins left…not if they keep playing like they have been. Could you imagine a 2-10 Michigan Football team? The thought makes me want to puke. I was thinking 5-7 worst case scenario after Notre Dame, but now I don’t even know how they will get 3 more wins.

Michigan Football: When It Rains, It Pours

Michigan-Utah

I can’t help but look at this photo and think it’s a high school football game. After the rain delay, this was all that was left at Michigan Stadium. This certainly looks like the death of an elite football program to me.

As I sat there in the pouring rain, waiting for the game to be suspended after seeing lightning, I couldn’t help but think, this is how it all ends for Brady Hoke. Soaking wet, in a weather delay, following another offensive turnover. The offense has turned into a turnover machine that couldn’t find the end zone with a god damn GPS.

Fantasy Football Is A Roller Coaster Of Emotions

Fantasy Football

I always try to make good on my bets. Unfortunately, Fantasy Football is not always the best thing to place bets on since you have little to no control on the outcome. Few things provide an emotional roller coaster like it and I love it.

Despite a valiant effort from the Patriots defense to help my sorry team and my poor decisions, I was bested by Nick Daigneau and his team. His running backs are heinous, but my receivers are worse…at least they were during this contest. I’ll have my revenge in the playoffs…hopefully.

And as a reminder, don’t sit your studs…damn Philip Rivers.

Michigan vs. Notre Dame: Sickening

If you’re looking for a recap of the game, you might as well skip this post. There’s no point analyzing the porous effort on both sides of the ball. This is going to just be an unorganized, semi-coherent rant. Well, hang on, here’s a quick recap:

That sufficient enough?

Michigan vs. App State Recap: We Can Run The Ball?

Via MGoBlog

So this took a little longer to compile than I wanted, but this week was busy (shocker I know).

Okay, yes, it’s only Appalachian State, but still. After being completely unable to run the football last year, the fact that they could run down the field without getting tackled in the backfield every time was awesome. Yes, most of their rushing yards were on about 5 big runs, but that’s what you need, game-breaking runs.

But more on that later.

Detroit Lions 2014-2015 Season Preview

Lions Jersey

The Detroit Lions are always an enigma. Looking at the roster on paper, you would think that the playoffs are guaranteed. But after watching them in the preseason, I’m less encouraged. Sure, it’s just the preseason but the secondary looked like complete garbage, and the offensive execution was less than ideal; even if Calvin Johnson wasn’t playing much. I’m not a fan of Jim Caldwell, but I think that the new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is going to do a good job when they don’t have a vanilla game plan. I also enjoyed how aggressive the front seven of the defense was during the preseason with Teryl Austin’s playcalling, but the starting corners make me extremely worried. Blake Bortles went 70 yards with no timeouts in less than two minutes like he was back in college playing Akron or Temple.

Michigan Football 2014-2015 Season Preview

I had this post all ready to go but Brady Hoke insisted on changing his mind about who is starting and I’m sure I’ll have to end up updating this post this week. Anyways, I hate to say it, but this is probably the least optimistic I’ve been for a Michigan football season in a while. Yes, that includes Rich Rodriguez’s tenure because his first year doesn’t count. It’s impossible to be optimistic when you know you’ve got Stephen Threet and Nick Sheridan running a mostly option spread attack on the offensive side of the ball.

To be perfectly honest, the lack of optimism is only due to the offensive line. I think the defense has a chance to be an elite defense, especially because of the massive amount of talent in the front seven. The defensive line and linebacking group are two of the deepest/most talented groups in the Big Ten. They very well could put together a season like Michigan State did last year, where the defense leads the way and the offense puts up enough points to come away with some wins.
