FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

      • 17 was accurate reflection of the game, IMO. In the end, M scored 13 directly off TOs and Florida got 14.

        20-3 was about the way the game went. Fortunately I didn't back the under and simply backed the easy M cover.

        • Brown chose to stuff the box and force the Gators QBs to beat us, they couldn't put even one decent drive together.


          • 24-27 would have been more accurate, but wgaf??


            • Felt like we looked like who we are...a talented but young and inexperienced team. Going to be a very interesting year.

              • Offense is going to need to work on their tackling.


                • I fear it to be true.


                  • Very little in our way (Indiana) till Penn State in about week 8.


                    • We still need QB

                      And no I don't like Michigan starting QB


                      • Lotta good things to take from that game.


                        • My takeaways:

                          (1) Frey is paying dividends. Isaac had 116y mostly on zone stretch plays or pure off Cole's left hip. Downfield blocking was good. The IZ game will improve. M rushed for 245y against a very good UF D that consistently put 8 in the box. Big upgrade for the run game.

                          (2) M still has problems closing out an opponent (and dropping my pulse rate). Speight missed a wide open Crawford on an over thrown ball with UF blitzing and the back side barren that would have sealed it with about 6 or 7m left in the fourth. Then, with M just pounding an exhausted UF front, driving the ball and from inside the 10, JH gets fancy and has Speight through two straight in-completions from somewhere around the 6 into the end zone. Next Nordin misses a FG. That botched series is most likely on JH and gave up an almost certain close-out score.

                          JH's play calls speak to Hack's concerns about risk management as it pertains to what JH appears to be dialing up in given down and distance situations. Run the fucking ball. M had done extremely well doing that on that drive. The Panda or somebody would have scored. Finally, with a chance to possess the ball until the clock ran out, M goes 3 and out giving the ball back to UF for a last gasp. Against better offenses that shit is going to bite M in the ass.

                          (3) Speight was inconsistent and is the Speight we all think he is. He seems, frustratingly to me anyway, to miss key plays or make mistakes at critical momentum involving junctures of the game. Ridiculously costly and has the potential to send my heart into a life threatening arrhythmia.

                          He did show great ability to read the field, real accuracy and crisp throws at times and then he'd screw up his reads, miss open receivers to try to put the ball into a tight spot and well, the nation and all of M's opponents saw him give up back two back pic-6's. One INT definitely on him and another where he contributed (hi, fast ball). Speight is probably at his ceiling against good defenses. He'll get us all excited the next 6 games and until @PSU and then he'll implode.

                          Continuing with the passing game, I really didn't see a whole lot of difference between M's passing game in 2016 and in this game. Thought we'd see a lot more short passes based on UF's LBs and slotty guys getting favorable match-ups or more crossing routes from the Wides ...... at least that's what I thought pep Hamilton was bringing. Maybe later. I'm not sure there was a TE targeted in the first half. Strange as that is a Harbaughffense feature.

                          (4) Uluzio is going to be serviceable. I thought he played as well as Mags did in 2016. Mags was flat out inconsistent; great for a drive or two then whiff city. The interior OL is setting up to be way better than last season. Cole is solid at LT. UF's front four battled. Good news for the run game that was sorely absent in 2016. Frey, did I mention that?

                          (5) In Speight's defense, Eubanks, Crawford and Black combined for 145 receiving yards. Going forward, these guys have the potential of making Wilton look pretty good with the long ball.

                          • Speight isn't the guy to lead this team. We got a bunch of new kids, that are very young. Basically a rebuilding year put in one of the young guns at QB.


                            • Speight is going to be your QB until he graduates.


                              • He'll be ok, too.

                                Apparently The He Man Speight Haters Club is an offshoot of the He Man Stafford Haters Club.
