    • At least your opinion of Michigan is consistent. Can always count on that! :^)

        Thankfully, McCarthy isn't Steven Threet. And pasting Washington by 3 TDs isn't as pathetic as losing to Toledo. If this is the REAL McNamara that shows up in conference play, they'll find a clipboard for him to hold until the transfer portal opens up.

        • Harbaugh said after the game that the original game plan was not to go after U-W with the passing game, because their corners and safety were very good. He said they felt they could run effectively, and that's what they prepared for. He said the running game was much better than he expected, so he pretty much took the air out of the ball and ran it. McNamara wasn't required to pass to win the game.

          I also noticed that Michigan was shortening the game by taking nearly all of the 40 second clock before snapping. They were below 5 seconds many times at the snap. I think this was deliberate as well, so as to cut down on the number of posessions that Washington could get. It was obvious to me that Michigan's Db's, with the exception of Hill, are ripe to be plucked. Future opponents will note that.

          I don't expect much resistance from the next round of Huskies. Rutgers will be well prepared so that will be somewhat of a test. The real fun comes in 3 weeks in Madison.

            I like Jon's take on your post. I hate you for being right more often than wrong😁

            There's a shit ton of detail to how a passing play works or doesn't work. I prefer this to blanket statements McNamarra was "really bad." I think a detailed look at his performance and that of the WR group as a whole makes for a more robust description of his performance:

            There is such a thing as redemption. Maybe we're seeing one. Don't fuck it up Jim.

            • I just found this on the Michigan Marching Band site. These kids put on an amazing show. Its a good thing I wasn't there in person, because there were several moments during the show where I would have been blubbering like a big baby.

              Great job!
